Hulk Hogan promo with Mean Gene:
Gene: We are just moments away Hulk Hogan with your match up against the 550lbs Yokozuna. Just what is your strategy for tonight?
Hulk: (low tone) You know never in my life Mean Gene had I felt the embarrassment I did this past week on Monday Night RAW. I have bodyslammed giants and men, but I couldn't do it Mean Gene. I felt a chill in my spine, it was like something was creeping up on me that night.
Gene: I have no doubt that you'll try again!
Hulk: Maybe I will maybe I can't do it, maybe it's Hollywood, I don't know but I'll try Mean Gene I'll try and that is what matters...that's what Hulkamania is...and tonight I'll try to take down the big man. If Bret Hart can do it, I know I can too, but if not...than I know my time is done in the WWF.
Gene: Wait just a minute are you saying that you believe you're time here in the WWF could very well be over?
Hulk: We'll have to see...(leaves sad)
Gene: I can't believe what I'm hearing back to you Randy!
Hulk Hogan vs. Yokozuna (w/Mr. Fuji) in Singles competition
Yokozuna gets in the ring with Mr. Fuji. Hulk Hogan is seen in the back walking down the aisle till he meets WWF Champion Bret Hart who is heading to his locker room. They shake hands with Bret saying good luck. Hulk nods and heads on out.
Hulk and Yoko and standing face to face. Mr. Fuji gets in the middle asking Hulk to try again. Hulk instead rakes Yoko's eyes and gets on the offensive, however Yoko shoves Hulk down at ease. Hulk is up and Yoko lands chops and headbutts. He whips Hulk to a corner for a big avalanche; squashing the former champion. Hulk counters later in the match with several holds, but Yoko clearly overpowers Hulk.
Late in the match, Yokozuna gets in a belly-to-belly suplex and pins Hogan only for Hogan to kick out to two and start hulking-up. Yoko lands several chops, but its not enough. Hogan hits the three punch, big boot, but Yoko is wobbly. Hogan lands a clothesline and the big guy falls down. Hogan lands the leg drop for the 1...2...kickout!!
Hogan is up and can't believe it. Hogan is looking to the crowd he gets to his knees and starts to look up to the heavens. Yokozuna is on his knees trying to get back up. Hogan tries to go for a bodyslam, but Yokozuna strikes him down. Yokozuna bodyslams Hogan himself and hits the ropes for a legdrop of his own, only for Hogan to get out of the way. Hogan and Yoko are up at the same time and finally Hogan gets in the bodyslam!
Hogan hits the ropes, but Mr. Fuji hits Hogan's back with his cane. Hogan goes after Mr. Fuji on the outside. Hogan gets back in and Yokozuna lands some chops. He whips Hogan to a corner and goes for the avalanche, for Hogan to get out of the way. Yoko lands on his back with Hogan going for the pin but with his legs on the ropes as leverage for the pinfall!
Winner: Hulk Hogan via pinfall.
Heenan goes absolutely nuts on the mic saying how in the world didn't the ref see that, where Hogan used the ropes to cheat his way to win. Hogan poses for the fans as Yokozuna talks trash on his way out with Fuji.
