Mick Foley and Terry Funk bow down to him because he’s the king of hardcore. He says he’ll do whatever he needs to to destroy Abyss, then he’s crawling back to Immortal where he’ll kiss Ray’s feet, Bischoff’s feet, Steiner’s feet, and Gunner’s feet. He says after tonight, Abyss will be Immortal’s b**** again.

Abyss is the next man to make his way out to the ring, and he gets a big pop from the crowd.
