A dwarf comes down to the ring with a bull rope and a hat that is too big for his head. Lawler knew Bradshaw was a small man on the inside, but he wasn’t expecting this. Lawler tells Bradshaw that he is shameful to be in the WWF and isn’t near his level of royalty and asks the dwarf if he agrees. The dwarf asks how can he change his ways for Lawler to respect him. Lawler suggests he shine his boots up and the dwarf gets down on his knees to accommodate royalty. Lawler says he is sicken by the coward dwarf and kicks him to the floor with his newly shined boots. Lawler gets on the microphone and tells the world that John Bradshaw will fall down to royalty on October 30th.

Steiner has heard Bigelow talking smack about winning the title and admits it would be a tough match, but the only fire Bigelow has is on his head and not in his heart to win the title. Steiner thinks Jarrett is the weak link of the Dynasty and Helmsley has more things to worry about in Mr. Perfect then try and steal the championship away from him. Ross asks Scott about Rick’s return and if they will go for the tag titles like Rick had stated. Scott says that when that time comes they will discuss their future but his focus is defending the WWF Intercontinental Championship every night.
