Bischoff is backstage with Hogan, Hall, Waltman and Nash. Bischoff says Nash is under contract, but Waltman and Nash have to prove themselves. Hogan says these guys have to get real, this is their one shot and their might not be another, so they need to make things happen for themselves before they walk off. Hall says they need to destroy BMI tonight so he looks good. Waltman says what about him. Hall says he's got to wait his turn. Hall and Waltman play a game of Rock Paper Scissors with Waltman coming out on top. Apparently that decides who Nash's partner will be later tonight.
