Crush comes down and shakes hands with Lawler before talking about what he did last week. Crush says that he was approached by Ted DiBiase with a “significant amount of money” to make sure that everything went the way he wanted. Crush goes on to say that when given the money he was given, he decided why not. “Why not, King? Get money for beating someone up you don’t like anyway?” Crush continues by noting that the British Bulldog wants a piece of DiBiase, but sadly, Crush says that’s not going happen. Instead, Crush issues a challenge to Bulldog for this Sunday at King of the Ring. Crush wants to collect all the money and take Bulldog out so DiBiase and Diana can live peacefully and he can have a secure bank account. Crush tells King that it’s all about the money and being able to take one of the WWF’s heroes out at the same time.

During the match, Bob Backlund shared some pre-tape comments saying that Simmons is nothing but a loser and the fans need to wake up and admire Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

McMahon talks about how Savage has mentioned the possibility of the Mega Powers making a return to take on Flair and the masked man in the future. Ric asks Vince why he should be afraid of the idea of wrestling Savage and Hogan in the ring. Flair recalls having beaten Savage and Hogan in singles matches. With a partner like the masked man by his side, they will be able to unplug the Mega Powers. “Hogan, Savage, the Nature Boy accepts your challenge. The Mega Powers are not a force in wrestling. Ric Flair is!” Flair and the masked man proceed to leave the ring as McMahon wonders when we will see the huge tag team match!

2. British Bulldog Interview: Jim Ross conducted an interview with the British Bulldog. Ross notes that is has been made official earlier in the week that Bulldog will wrestle Crush at KOTR. Bulldog tells Ross that what happened to him last week on RAW was the most embarrassing moment, ever. Having divorce papers shoved into his mouth after being beaten up from behind is something he will never forget about. Now, the fury he feels inside will be first let out on Crush, the man who delivered the violent attack. Once he gets done with Crush, he will get Ted DiBiase in the ring and move on forever. “I don’t want Diana back, I want to break DiBiase’s back. He ruined my life. I want to end his career.”

5. Yokozuna Interview: Vince McMahon conducted an interview with Johnny Polo, Mr. Fuji and Yokozuna. McMahon promotes the KOTR, which Yokozuna is competing in. Polo says that at King of the Ring one of his guys is finally going to be getting what they deserve. He says Yokozuna has been beating people up for two years and never got a WWF World Championship shot while doing so. Now, he has to go through three matches before getting a title shot that he has long deserved. Polo feels sorry for Tatanka, because he is going to be the first victim as Yokozuna will become the WWF World Champion at SummerSlam! Polo finishes off the promo saying that he is the greatest manager of all-time and all of his men will be champions!
6. Scott Norton defeated Tim Williams in 2:18 following a shoulder breaker. After the match, Jeff Jarrett gets a microphone and tells everyone that in just two days, on RAW, himself and Norton are going to be on everyone’s mind and they will not be forgotten about again!

2. Chris Benoit Interview: Jim Ross conducted an interview with Chris Benoit regarding the KOTR. Benoit talks about how his record against Owen Hart is 1-1 and says he has been beating himself up for having lost to a second rate wrestler like Owen Hart. At KOTR, Benoit is going to right the wrong and take all his frustration out by making Owen tap out until his hand falls off.
