Bret continues to walk towards the house until DiBiase arrives at the top of the steps on the porch. DiBiase welcomes Bret to his home, the Million Dollar Mansion. Bret doesn’t care what DiBiase has to say, he wants to see his family. DiBiase tells Hart that he can’t allow that, simply because he doesn’t want to. DiBiase snaps his fingers and several officers come with clubs and handcuffs. Hart tells DiBiase that he isn’t going to go anywhere. DiBiase says that he will press charges for trespassing, sending Hart to jail and he will kick his family out of the house! “Bret, do you really want to be in jail while your family is left on the cold, dark streets?” Hart is clearly furious and begins to back away. DiBiase walks down the steps with security and walks towards Hart. DiBiase offers Hart a proposal. “Bret, I know I have gotten your attention. I own your childhood home. I have a proposal for you, I know you will not decline it.” DiBiase continues “Hitman, I have all the money in the world. I can do whatever I want, as you can see.” Hart wants to know what he his proposal is. DiBiase tells Hart “I know you want your home back. I know you want your family back. If you beat Shawn Michaels at the Royal Rumble, you can wrestle me at WrestleMania X. But it will not be just any kind of match. If you can beat him, you can get your home back. I’ll release the home in your name. But, if you lose, I want you gone from the WWF. But, this all only matters if you can actually beat Shawn Michaels, and I don’t think you can!” Bret responds saying “Your on, DiBiase. I’m going to beat Michaels and at WrestleMania X, we will meet, and I will get my family and my life back!” Hart is backed away from the house by security as DiBiase bursts out in laughter!
