Curt Hennig is shown in vignettes explaining why he is called “Mr Perfect,” playing bowling perfectly, strike after strike.

Brother Love: ‘I love you! And there is a lot of love at the top of the World Wrestling Federation today. Because at the top is none other than both of my guests at this time, the World Wrestling Federation’s First Lady, Miss Elizabeth, and the WWF World Champion, “Macho Man” Randy Savage!’ The champ and the First Lady walk onto the set to a huge ovation. Brother Love: ‘Now, I see you two together here now. But a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t see you, Miss Elizabeth, standing by your man, no. Not at all. I saw you beside Hulk Hogan, after he’d been knocked semi-conscious with a billy club to the skull! Now what do you have to say about that, champ?’ Savage: ‘Brother Love, you invite us here tonight for an interview and all you can do is mention that? Don’t think I don’t see what you’re doing, because I do. You’re trying to hurt the Mega-Powers, but if you wanna do that, you’re gonna have to get in line, yea. And it’s not gonna happen. I was running after Hulk Hogan’s attackers as Elizabeth checked on his condition. She’s been in the corner of the Mega-Powers for many months now, up and down the country, sold-out arena after sold-out arena, fans hanging from the rafters, and she’s supposed to be concerned about me and my tag team partner, too! Because if my tag team partner gets hurt, the tag team is hurt, and I’ll get hurt. So why don’t you ask me something worthwhile, like how I qualified for the Tourney at Survivor Series despite the nay-sayers such as yourself!’ Brother Love: ‘Well let’s talk about that then! Because you may well have qualified, but you have to face the One Man Gang, the man who ended the career of none other than “Superstar” Billy Graham, that cheap Brother Love imitation!’ Savage: ‘You need to have more respect for a former WWF World Champion like “Superstar” Billy Graham, Brother Love! You couldn’t even dream of achieving the things he did in his illustrious career. Without “Superstar” Billy Graham, there’d be no Hulk Hogan. And without Bruno Sammartino, there’d be no “Macho Man” Randy Savage. You see, Brother Love, there’s an illustrious line of true champions that have had the honour of holding this gold, and carrying the weight of this company around the world with them as its champion. I have respect for that. I’m striving to due justice to that honour. But there’s another honour, and that’s to go down in the history books as a Sole Survivor at this year’s Survivor Series, so nice they did it twice, yea! As for justice? The Big Boss Man isn’t about justice, other than a miscarriage of justice that lets someone like One Man Gang go free. Slick brings him back into the World Wrestling Federation, thanks to the Big Boss Man? If Big Boss Man believed in justice, he’d be arresting Slick himself! He made lewd comments about Elizabeth? I’ll make him wish he hadn’t. But first it’s One Man Gang I’ll deal with. I know him, Brother Love, yes I do. One Man Gang is someone I’m very familiar with, Brother Love, because I already fought him at WrestleMania, en route to capturing the belt you see here around my macho waist, ooh yea!’ Brother Love: ‘I know my World Wrestling Federation history! And I know that you only won that historic night because he got disqualified, didn’t you?’ Savage: ‘You wanna see me pin him? You will! I’ll pin him. And I’ll be the Sole Survivor!’ Brother Love: ‘Well your tag team partner said the same. Though with his concussion he may not even get cleared to compete! Now do you really think you can beat three men in one night, with so much pressure on you as WWF World Champion, the man to beat?’ Savage: ‘Listen to me, Brother Love: In order to become the WWF World Champion, I beat four men in one night! So think about it. Dig it?’ Brother Love: ‘Oh that’s true, too. But you weren’t injured, were you?’ Savage: ‘What are you talking about? Hulk Hogan’s injured. But I’m-’ Suddenly, One Man Gang, with Slick, attacks the champ from behind, stomping him, and leaving him lying, before officials run and quickly stop a further attack! Big Boss Man puts One Man Gang in chains and takes him away, backstage, albeit smirking.

Bret “Hit Man” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart wrestle as The Hart Foundation for the first time in weeks, to a huge reception from the crowd! “Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart goes to ringside after the match and takes the mic, vowing vengeance on the Hart Foundation, but almost choking as he says their name!

On Update, Sean Mooney looks at the card for the Survivor Series: ‘It’s the “Thanksgiving Tradition!” And it comes to you live on Pay-Per-View on Thanksgiving weekend, November 27th from the Richfield Coliseum in Ohio! The traditional multi-man tag team elimination action will take place on that night, but the participants are as yet unknown. Aside from that, however, the survival instincts required for each of the eight men in the unprecedented prestigious Tournament are enough to make the Survivor Series a must-see! Three stages will take place – the quarter-finals, semi-finals, and the finals itself – meaning the first-ever Sole Survivor must wrestle three times in one night to automatically leapfrog the WWF Intercontinental Champion to the very top echelons of the World Wrestling Federation! It’s quite an opportunity for the Sole Survivor, having the power to essentially pick their next opponent, whoever they may be and whatever belt they may possess. The quarter-finals themselves are already making this fall spectacular a show not to be missed: Hulk Hogan meets the Big Boss Man, with Slick; Hercules goes against “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase with Virgil; “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan faces Bad News Brown; and last but not least, WWF World Champion “Macho Man” Randy Savage, with Miss Elizabeth, has a chance to redeem his WrestleMania disqualification-gained advance over One Man Gang, with Slick! But can he pin his shoulders to the mat? With this kind of main event, we could see friends against friends and, certainly, foes against foes! Might we see the Big Boss Man fight with Slick’s friend, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase? Perhaps the One Man Gang and Bad News Brown will get a chance to show who’s the best street-fighter of them all? DiBiase against Duggan, the working man? Or, as has been suggested, we could see Mega-Powers Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage face each other in the finals! Don’t miss the Survivor Series!’

“King” Harley Race, without his crown but with Slick, wins his match.

On Face to Face, with “Mean” Gene Okerlund, Hulk Hogan (from a studio in Venice Beach, CA) again tells Big Boss Man (from a studio in Cobb County, GA) that he didn’t steal Harley Race’s crown; Big Boss Man tells him he might have won the match, but the crown’s not sanctioned, so he stole it! Hogan says he’ll gladly fight fair for the crown if it’s put on the line!

Mr Perfect is again shown, this time playing ping pong perfectly.

Brother Love: ‘I love you! And everyone loves a winner. But sometimes winners look a lot like losers, and losers look a lot like winners. My guest at this time was a winner at SummerSlam, but looked a lot like a loser! He is the Ultimate Warrior!’ Ultimate Warrior runs onto the set, and Brother Love has to try and calm him down. Brother Love: ‘Calm down, Ultimate Warrior. Calm down, calm down! This is not a place for war, this is a place for love! But even though you looked like a loser, you were indeed in fact a winner at SummerSlam.’ Ultimate Warrior: ‘I did win at SummerSlam. And he did attack me, when I did not deserve to be attacked. My battle scars healed. Now, Haku must know that he faces war with me. I won the first battle, but he was not able to live with it. And I will win the final battle! And he may not live to tell the tale of how he fought with the Ultimate Warrior. I respect my fellow warriors, but I do not respect him or his kind. And so they will be destroyed. Respect must be deserved. I respect all these warriors here who follow me whenever I go into battle, Brother Love! I must earn their respect even more, and I will. I will get back into contention for the WWF Intercontinental Championship I so respect. But Haku has no respect from me. When he attacked me from behind like a coward, he lost any shred of respect I ever had for him in battle. Now I have no respect left for him. And I will have no mercy! Feel the power!’

Mr Perfect is shown playing golf perfectly, with a hole in one.

Brother Love: ‘I love you! And I know that everyone is wondering what’s inside that giant egg that suddenly appeared recently here in the World Wrestling Federation. Well, my guest at this time is a man who says he knows what’s inside that egg! With his charge, Haku, he is Bobby “The Brain” Heenan!’ Heenan walks onto the set with Haku, shaking hands with Brother Love. Brother Love: ‘Mister Heenan, is it true that you know what’s inside the egg?’ Heenan: ‘That’s right, Brother Love, I do. And it’s amused me to see all these humanoids wondering about it.’ Brother Love: ‘I ought to have known you’d know what was inside! After all, you are Bobby “The Brain” Heenan!’ Heenan: ‘Exactly. Not only that, Brother Love, but it was all my idea! I know just what’s inside that egg because I put it there. And you’ll all see just what I’m going to do to your Thanksgiving, on Saturday, when it finally hatches, just like all my plans!’ With that, cracks begin to appear in the egg! ‘Don’t worry, Brother Love – it isn’t going to hatch just yet! You’ll just have to wait. And I have other things on my brilliant mind.’ Brother Love: ‘That’s true, Brother Bobby. I know you are disgusted with the actions of the Ultimate Warrior.’ Heenan: ‘I am disgusted, Brother Love. Because life is a matter of survival, and especially here in the World Wrestling Federation. But some people survive better than others, and although that man calls himself the Ultimate Warrior, I’d say he still has a lot to learn about survival, and warring with others. Because Haku here injured the Ultimate Warrior at the end of their match at SummerSlam, he did indeed, as much as the Ultimate Warrior refused to admit it. But what did the Ultimate Warrior do? He waited until Haku had already fought one of his friends, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, before he came back to attack him. That’s right; he had Jake the Snake do the dirty work for him, didn’t he? Well, he was right, because this war will go on.’ Brother Love: ‘But nonetheless, Brother Bobby, you do not have any gold in your stable. Haku’s valiant effort against that snake-in-the-grass will instead be remembered for the Ultimate Warrior’s return. But what happens now?’ Heenan: ‘I will be making a run for the WWF Tag Team Championship too!’ Brother Love: ‘But you don’t have a tag team in your stable at this time!’ Heenan: ‘I will have. I will soon be introducing a tag team known as the Brain Busters. A tag team tailor-made for my methods, who have mastered their craft, and who will be-‘ Suddenly, WWF Tag Team Champions Demolition, Ax and Smash, followed by Master Fuji, walk onto the set, interrupting Heenan. Haku stands in front of him. Ax: ‘We’re not here for you, Haku. What we wanna know is why he’s talking about our WWF Tag Team Championship!’ Smash: ‘That’s right! These belts belong to us, but that sounded like a challenge to me!’ Heenan (nervous): ‘Whoa, whoa. Fuji, please explain to them what I really mean. I’m not challenging Demolition!’ Fuji (to Ax and Smash): ‘Leave Heenan alone. He is friend.’ Then, Andre the Giant walks onto the set, joining Heenan and Haku. Heenan: ‘Easy, Andre. (To Demolition) Look, all I’m talking about is introducing a tag team to your division. Obviously it’d take months, maybe years, for them to become contenders to your WWF Tag Team Championship. You’ve got many more contenders in the meantime. By the time they challenge for those belts, you probably won’t be holding them!’ Ax: ‘Oh, so you don’t think we’ll last long as champ, huh?’ Smash: ‘You’re saying we don’t got what it takes? We’re the best, most dominant tag team the World Wrestling Federation’s ever seen, Heenan!’ Fuji: ‘Leave Heenan alone!’ Brother Love: ‘Boys, boys! Clearly what Demolition has to be concerned with is the Powers of Pain.’ Heenan: ‘Exactly. And we can help you with them, too. But Haku has unfinished business with the Ultimate Warrior and Jake “The Snake” Roberts as well. We all have other things to worry about. We ought to be joining forces, not fighting each other!’ Fuji: ‘Heenan is right.’ Fuji shakes hands with Heenan, Haku, and Andre, but Demolition do so very reluctantly!

The Rockers win their match.

Sean Mooney (on Update): ‘The Survivor Series is just around the corner! In addition to the remarkable main event featuring a Tournament to declare a Sole Survivor standing atop the mountain of the World Wrestling Federation, we have just received official word from WWF President Jack Tunney’s office that the tradition of Thanksgiving and the World Wrestling Federation’s fall-time spectacular will continue: the battle lines have been drawn, the teams have been formed, and an eight-man elimination match will take place at the Survivor Series! On Tuesday Night Titans this past week, we saw the formation of Bobby “The Brain” Heenan’s Andre the Giant and Haku, in addition to Master Fuji’s WWF Tag Team Champions Demolition, now collectively calling themselves The Annihilators, determined to annihilate the Ultimate Warrior, WWF Intercontinental Champion Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and the Baron’s Powers of Pain – they are the Reckless Ruffians who have united to deal with this threat of annihilation! It’s an unbelievable undercard featuring no less than three champions in the ring, in a match featuring a process of elimination. With the Annihilators determined to annihilate their opponents, will we see all four joining forces to eliminate the Ultimate Warrior and the Powers of Pain to leave Jake “The Snake” Roberts on his own, outnumbered four-to-one? Or might we see Andre the Giant having to fend for himself against not one, not two, but three or even four adversaries? The possibilities are many and varied. But the Tournament main event will give another champion, the WWF World Champion, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, an opportunity to solidify his place at the pinnacle of the World Wrestling Federation mountain, proving that yet again he can defeat several men in one night to stand tall at the top. But what if he doesn’t? What threat would that pose to his title? Or would the Sole Survivor use his newfound status to instead challenge for the WWF Intercontinental Championship? And who will hold that title after Saturday Night’s Main Event? Jake “The Snake” Roberts? Or, in his last chance, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan’s Haku?’

Bad News Brown wins his match.

On Face to Face (with “Mean” Gene Okerlund), the Reckless Ruffians, Ultimate Warrior, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and the Baron’s Powers of Pain (from a studio in Arizona) tell the Annihilators of Andre the Giant, Haku, and WWF Tag Team Champions Demolition, with Master Fuji (from a studio in Brownsville, PA) that they will go at them with reckless abandon, and note that Bobby “The Brain” Heenan isn’t with them.

With Bobby “The Brain” Heenan stood waiting in the ring, the egg cracks open, and a man with his hair combed and dyed red to look like a rooster emerges, strutting to the ring. Heenan: ‘That’s right! This man is poultry in motion! He is the Red Rooster! And he is going to make turkeys of all the other wrestlers here in the World Wrestling Federation!’ The Red Rooster shakes Heenan’s hand, to boos from the crowd, before winning his match.

Dino Bravo tells Vince McMahon and Lord Alfred Hayes that he hasn’t forgotten about Hercules trying to embarrass him by beating him into the Tourney, but he is still stronger than him, and better than him, he adds.

Ken Patera talks about being a true athlete who still has what it takes, but is confronted by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, who tells him Mr Perfect is the perfect athlete who can defeat Ken Patera. Ken claims that, as an Olympian, he’s better than Perfect, but Heenan responds, ‘Now we all know that’s impossible!’

Brother Love: ‘I love you! But there is one man who deserves far more love than any of you people! Because he has contributed the funds that has kept this show on the air, in spite of WWF President Jack Tunney’s comments! He is of course “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase!’ DiBiase and Virgil walk onto the set. Brother Love (shaking his hand): ‘Mister DiBiase, as always, it’s a pleasure to have you here on the show.’ DiBiase: ‘You’re welcome, Brother Love. This show is a very important part of the World Wrestling Federation, even if WWF President Jack Tunney doesn’t realise it. But of course, we’re talking about a man who took the WWF World Championship away from me.’ Brother Love: ‘That’s right! And even though you were given the opportunity to reclaim it at WrestleMania IV, it was in a tournament where you faced several opponents!’ DiBiase: ‘They fear the power I’d have with the WWF World Championship, Brother Love. I’d have more money, and power, than ever before. And I’d have respect, and privileges in the hallowed halls of the World Wrestling Federation. So the conspiracy continues. And even now they mock me by having a Tourney as the main event of the Survivor Series. Well, I qualified for it. And when I face Hercules there, he will rue the day he ever crossed me! In the meantime, since to me the WWF World Championship cannot hold any prestige with such an unfair President’s office, I have decided that they can keep it. Because I am currently in the process of finding the finest materials to create my own belt, my own title – the Million Dollar Championship. And as I had the WWF World Championship taken away from me, I feel it is fair for me to be the Million Dollar Champion! And it will be a million dollars, trust me. It will be made of fine diamonds, solid gold. In fact, it’ll make the WWF World Championship belt look like something you wouldn’t even use to hold your pants up with! And after it is completed next week, it will be unveiled, right here, on this very show! And all of you people will finally have to call me a champion! And I am a champion – in the World Wrestling Federation, and in life, unlike you people at the bottom of the barrel, scrambling around, fighting each other for pocket change like the nickel-and-dime penny-pinching peons that you all are! Next week, you will bow down to the Million Dollar Champion!’ “Macho Man” Randy Savage appears on-set, with Miss Elizabeth, as officials run to the scene. Brother Love: ‘Now what are you doing here, Savage? You may well be the WWF World Champion, but you have no right whatsoever to come gatecrash my show!’ Officials form a barrier between the WWF World Champion, and the host and his guest. Savage: ‘Three weeks ago, on this show, I was attacked by One Man Gang! Just like Hulk Hogan was attacked on this show and injured by the Big Boss Man! Not only do you insult the WWF World Champion by unilaterally introducing another pretender to my throne here tonight, but you have a show that acts as a trap!’ DiBiase: ‘How dare you call me a pretender to the throne!’ Brother Love: ‘Why, that’s paranoid! There’s no hatchet-job here! You’re paranoid!’ Savage: ‘Brother Love, you knew I was gonna be attacked, just like you probably knew Hulk Hogan was gonna be attacked, too!’ Brother Love: ‘I didn’t know anything about any of it! But what I’d like to point out to you, champ, is that while you went to help Hulk Hogan when he got attacked by the Big Boss Man, where was he when you were being attacked by the One Man Gang?’ Savage hesitates; ponders. Miss Elizabeth interrupts. ‘That’s a ridiculous thing to say. Randy, he’s trying to destroy the Mega-Powers again. Don’t let him! Everyone knows that Hulk Hogan was still injured at the time of the attack on Randy. I’m sure if he could have been there, he would have been there.’ Randy: ‘Elizabeth’s right. You’re just trying to ruin things for me going into this Tourney as the WWF World Champion! Well I’m not gonna be humiliated by losing in this thing!’ Brother Love: ‘Yeah? And again: What if you have to face Hulk Hogan yourself?’ Savage pauses for several moments, before abruptly leaving, with Miss Elizabeth following! DiBiase smirks, as he’s surrounded by officials and security.

Vince McMahon reports that WWF President Jack Tunney has signed Ken Patera against Mr Perfect for Saturday Night’s Main Event at the weekend.

The Reckless Ruffians (Ultimate Warrior, Powers of Pain without Baron, Jake “The Snake” Roberts) go against The Annihilators (Andre the Giant, Demolition w/Master Fuji, Red Rooster w/Bobby “The Brain” Heenan). Gorilla Monsoon: ‘Now why is The Red Rooster wrestling instead of Haku? Bobby “The Brain” Heenan has switched his charges! That isn’t fair!’ Jesse “The Body” Ventura: ‘Haku was injured by the Ultimate Warrior, Monsoon! And what an opportunity for the Red Rooster to make a name for himself here tonight!’ Andre the Giant is disqualified for choking Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Jake “The Snake” Roberts, semi-conscious, is then pinned by Red Rooster. Jess: ‘In his first ever match, the Red Rooster has pinned Jake the Snake!’ Red Rooster is pinned by Ultimate Warrior after the Ultimate Slam. Demolition disobey Master Fuji’s instructions, so he starts hitting them with his cane on the outside. Demolition then knock Fuji to the floor, but Powers of Pain help him back to his feet! Demolition go back over to confront them, and a brawl ensues, getting all four disqualified by a referee unable to stop them or get them back in the ring. Ultimate Warrior wins! However, Haku runs to the ring to attack him! Gorilla Monsoon: ‘What the heck? I thought he was injured! This has been a plan by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan all along!’ Jesse “The Body” Ventura: ‘What a remarkable return by Haku! He deserves credit for making such a speedy recovery from his injuries!’ However, the Ultimate Warrior destroys him, pressing him above his head and giving him The Ultimate Slam once again! Bobby “The Brain” Heenan runs away as Ultimate Warrior glares at him.

Warlord, Barbarian, what are you doing with Master Fuji?’ Warlord: ‘The Baron was weak; we needed someone better. And who better than the man who leads tag teams to gold? Ha, ha!’ Barbarian: ‘Demolition had no respect for Master Fuji; they didn’t heed his advice at the ring, but we will. We want those belts!’ Fuji: ‘That’s right. For too long I, as a former WWF Tag Team Champion, guided them at the top of the tag team division, while they became more and more ignorant to my words. They not want to do things my way. They not care about Heenan’s Brain Busters. They not care about teaming with Haku or Andre. But Barbarian from Pacific Islands; he like Haku. And Warlord enjoys waging war. We must be merciless. We must be sadistic. And we must give pain. Here are the Powers of Pain. My Powers of Pain! The next WWF Tag Team Champions. Demolition: your days are numbered!’

But are you and “Macho Man” Randy Savage on a collision course tonight?’ Hogan: ‘Hulkamania is running wild here tonight, dude. But so are the Mega-Powers. One of us is gonna be the Sole Survivor, brother! We’ll fight with honour. And may the best man win! And when the Mega-Powers stand dominant at the top of the World Wrestling Federation yet again, whatcha gonna do?!’

Backstage, “Mean” Gene Okerlund interviews the WWF Intercontinental Champion, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake: ‘Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, you are the WWF Intercontinental Champion, having ended the longest reign in the history of the World Wrestling Federation, that of the Honky Tonk Man, who held onto that belt for sixty-two weeks, a figurative gold record.’ Bruti: ‘And one I finally smashed to smithereens, “Mean” Gene, a record I’ll surpass. But I want to be a fighting champion! And even though I wasn’t included by WWF President Jack Tunney in tonight’s Tournament, I’m here watching closely because I know that whoever becomes the Sole Survivor can leapfrog past any contender in any division, in any rankings, and I might have a completely unexpected challenge, should the Sole Survivor exercise his right to compete for a title of his choosing! Tonight, it’s about survival, and it’s about having the chance to beat three men in one night to move ahead to the front of the line in order to challenge for the title of your choice. Well, I’m not taking any chances. If it’s “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, that’s fine; he can kiss goodbye to his expensive barbers and instead say Goodnight Irene! If it’s Bad News Brown, that’s okay; I’ll shear off his beard! And you know what? If it’s my friend Hulk Hogan, and he wants to target me instead of his tag team partner “Macho Man” Randy Savage, that’s just alright by me, too, because it’d be an honour and a privilege to defend the WWF Intercontinental Championship against a man of his calibre. I have a great deal of respect for my fellow champion, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, but as far as I’m concerned, he’s going to have a hard time calling himself the best in the World Wrestling Federation if there’s another man who becomes Sole Survivor, and that man is going to pose a huge threat to his throne. But if instead they choose to challenge me, I’ll be ready, because I’m watching closely! And then once I’ve dealt with that challenge, maybe I’ll skip ahead, at the top of the heap, and go against “Macho Man” Randy Savage himself, champion against champion! This is a great time to be holding the gold here in the World Wrestling Federation. Gone are the old days, gone are the old ways. I’m the WWF Intercontinental Champion now, and I’m telling Jack Tunney to throw at me whoever he deems worthy of challenging me! Because I still believe I’m a cut above all the rest!’

Semi-finals:

WWF World Champion “Macho Man” Randy Savage, with Miss Elizabeth, eliminates Bad News Brown by pinfall after a roll-up.

“Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, with Virgil, eliminates Hulk Hogan by count-out after Hogan had fought with Virgil on the outside, and DiBiase slid back into the ring to beat the count. With DiBiase heading backstage, Hogan beats up Virgil for several minutes, and gives him Running Wild!

In an interview with “Mean” Gene Okerlund, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase says he will humiliate and embarrass Jack Tunney and the World Wrestling Federation when the Million Dollar Champion defeats the WWF World Champion in the final tonight!

When Andre the Giant goes to get him, Hulk Hogan stops him, and the Mega-Powers celebrate together, with Miss Elizabeth. However, a look from the WWF World Champion seems to suggest he feels Hulk Hogan is trying to steal his thunder.

Recorded live on USA

November 29th

Titan Towers, CT

Brother Love (standing beside a glass case covered with a sheet): ‘I love you! And it is an honour and a privilege to be presenting the show this week as we witness an event that will send chills through the corridors of power here in the World Wrestling Federation, and make an indelible mark on its landscape! Allow me to introduce to you, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase!’ Virgil and “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase walk onto the set. Brother Love: ‘Mister DiBiase, I can’t wait to see what you’ve had made for yourself.’ DiBiase: ‘You won’t be disappointed, Brother Love. I deserve to be a champion, as I have ever since I entered the World Wrestling Federation. Well, in spite of their attempts to stop me, on this day I become known as a champion. I am the Million Dollar Champion!’ Virgil removes the silk sheet, unveiling the glass case containing a beautiful diamond-studded gold belt! Virgil opens the case and takes the belt, placing it carefully around his employer’s waist. Brother Love: ‘It is an honour and a privilege to call you, “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, the Million Dollar Champion!’ DiBiase cackles as he wears his Million Dollar Championship belt for the first time.
