-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.
