Lawler introduces a man who had a very successful Survivor Series, Ted DiBiase, who defeated the broken down, miserably depressed Bret Hart. DiBiase makes his way down to the ring with a huge smile on his face and laughing in a few Hitman fans faces. DiBiase tells Lawler that it is always good to be standing in the ring with a winner, like Lawler. DiBiase tells the fans that he and Lawler are men that they should lookup to and respect. “You unintelligent fans cheer for guys like Tatanka, and Bret Hart. They are poor losers. You should all aim to be like me, a winner and wealthy!” Lawler wants to talk about DiBiase’s new home, the Hart House. DiBiase tells Lawler that for now on he wants his home to named the Million Dollar House. “Once I entered that disgusting, rotting home, the value went through the roof. Anything I touch becomes worth millions of dollars.” DiBiase tells Lawler that he has a surprise that he only wants to share here on the Kings Court. Recently, Bret’s sister Diane Smith has come home and assumed her job that he deemed she was qualified for. Lawler is quite interested in what DiBiase is talking about.

This has gone far too personal for me to keep myself compose. You bring my sister into this along with my parents. If you dare do anything to hurt them, I’ll make you regret the day you ever missed with the Hart Family.” McMahon brings up Shawn Michaels claiming to now be the best wrestler to ever life as Michaels believes he was the sole reason that Team DiBiase won.
