3. Kings Court w/Doink the Clown: Lawler brags about last week and how he drove Bam-Bam Bigelow head first into the canvas with a piledriver and believes that Bigelow’s flames have been extinguished! Speaking of extinguished, Lawler brings up Bob Holly and his crash a couple of weeks ago. Lawler talks about how Holly had bad bruising and thought his career has been ended all thanks to his guest, Doink the Clown! Doink comes down and taunts the fans before entering the ring to greet Lawler. Doink thinks the announcement tonight is that Holly is going to be retired and wants Doink to feel bad, but instead he will be the happiest clown because he caused the ultimate pain! We see on the big screen that Bob Holly has appeared and gets Doink’s attention. Holly tells Doink that he is one evil clown and that his life will never be the same. He knows that everyone thinks he is here to announce that he can no longer compete, but instead, he is here to say that he will be cleared to wrestle for SUMMERSLAM! Doink is shocked as Holly challenges Doink to a match, which is accepted. Doink talks about wanting to end Bob’s career in the ring anyway, and as he is talking Bob Holly appears through the crowd and dropkicks Doink from behind to the floor. Lawler cuts Bob off but here comes Bam-Bam Bigelow to slide into the ring and attacks Lawler! Bigelow tosses Lawler over the top to the floor and stands tall in the ring with Holly while the heels are pissed on the floor!
