- Well, we're taped for a Sandy Frank production of WCW Saturday Night.

- Say it with me.
- INSERT CATCH PHRASES HERE.

- Sheah right . . .all I can say is Shane Douglas you better watch out because now you have a contender for the title of being the most overrated, overweight worker in WCW.
- We come back to Tenay and Hudson discussing the Filthy Animals facing off against The Revolution. They then throw in the First Family and the Rednecks just to get a good chuckle out of me.
- We move to stills of Sting most heinously stabbing us all in the back. Of course, the fans must hate him as they popped like madmen when he tagged Hogan with that bat.
- Match #2 Disorderly Conduct vs. Vincent and Kendall Windham with Curt Hennig

Kendall Windham bulldog.

- Post match Scott and Steve come in and make the save.

Armstrong is just like them and has been held down all his career.
- We come back to a Sting montage that insults my intelligence. Let me share a few
of my thoughts on things they pointed out. The Dark and Brooding Sting was fighting
the premier heel group in wrestling, the nWo. When he joined the Wolfpac they were
definitely faces. Finally, RICK STEINER SICKED F***ING DOGS ON HIM AND IT'S SO
HORRIBLE THAT HE HOPPED OUT OF A HUMMER TO ATTACK HIM? I swear this is the kind of really stupid stuff that bugs me.
