IN THE RING SEGMENT
Hulk Hogan + Eric Bischoff: Hulk Hogan said that a little birdie told him that EricBischoff has arrived after being conveniently absent earlier, and invites himdown to the ring. Eric comes to the top of the ramp and says it’s ironic thatthey wound up at opposite ends of the spectrum after all they’ve been throughtogether. He never would have thought they’d wind up trying to undermine eachother, but it makes sense because there’s too many differences between them toname, and the biggest one is that Hogan’s not a leader.Hogan said, we’re takingcare of all the Lockdown business right here. Instead of Garett and Gunner inthe cage, how about Eric puts together his finest team, Garett puts together ateam of his own, and all the business gets taken care of at Lockdown. If Eric’steam wins, Garett never wrestles in Impact Wrestling again, but if Garett wins,then Eric is going to hit the road and will never be allowed to use theBischoff name again. Bischoff said we got a deal, so Hogan says that atLockdown, this thing between Eric and Garett ends one way or another.
