Brickhouse Brown/Don Bass/Bruno interview (Brick denies costing Lawler the AWA World Title vs. Hennig. This brings out Lawler/Rocky Johnson who are ready to fight Brown/Bass. This leads to the entire Commission coming out to intimidate Lawler. The King has backup in the form of Superstar Bill Dundee/Scott Hall/Travis/Jarrett/Alan West and more. The Nasty Boys come out last and stand in the middle (classic tweener behavior). With all these stars staring each other down, Eddie Marlin comes out and diffuses the impending brawl.)
