Austin jokes that it's great to be back here at the "Silverdome" getting a laugh from Hogan and from the crowd. He asks the crowd if they want him to open up a can of whoop ass on Hulk Hogan. The crowd agrees with a hell yeah. Austin leads a "what" chant counting off the Wrestlemania events Hogan was involved with. He said he appreciates everything Hogan has done for this business and they shake hands. Austin said he would love to stay out here and "flap his gums", but tonight is about the current regime of stars.
