-Hulk Hogan is asked in the parking lot about the World Title picture. He says it's a mess what he will get it straightened out for the new year. They ask him about Aces & 8's and the Brooke situation. He tells them not to worry about that crap. Hogan shouts, "Brooke!" as he looks down the parking lot and the camera zooms in. We see Bully push Brooke up against the back of a black SUV and kiss her passionately. Hogan gets in his car and leaves as we fade to Brooke and Bully kissing.
