|Season 1 / Episode 8: - October 23, 1995|
Bobby Heenan: [the lights suddenly go down as Eric Bischoff is talking about Sting and Lex Luger facing Harlem Heat] Did someone blow a fuse? What's going on?
The Master: [Sitting on a throne elevated several feet above the floor] SULLIVAN!
Bobby Heenan: Uh oh.
The Master: [Speaking loudly but slowly] MY SON! THE INSURANCE PACKAGE HAS BEEN DELIVERED! FROM NORTH OF KATMANDU, FROM THE HIMALAYAS AND FROM THE NORTH FACE OF MOUNT EVEREST, THE SHERPA GUIDES HAVE DUG OUT A THIRTEEN TON OF ICE! SULLIVAN, IN CHICAGO [the camera shows the giant block of ice] , WHEN YOU COLLECT THE WHISKERS OF THE RARE WHITE BENGAL TIGER. HE WANDERS NOW. HE HAS THUS SURRENDERED HIS COLORS. HE WANDERS IN DARKNESS. YOU SEE MY SON, THE EYES OF THE DEMON WILL COME CALLING ON HULK HOGAN AT HALLOWEEN HAVOC!
Eric Bischoff: Oh man, forget about Nightmare on Elm Street, we've got nightmare live right here in Huntsville. Mean Gene Okerlund is standing by, take it Geno.
Gene Okerlund: [Camera pulls back to show Okerlund standing with Kevin Sullivan and the Giant] I thank you Eric Bischoff. Ladies and gentlemen, I have the Giant, the man that's going to be facing Hulk Hogan man vs. man, machine vs. machine, this Sunday in Detroit. [Turns to Sullivan] Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan [points to the Master] what is the meaning of this man being here and what is this iceberg all about?
Kevin Sullivan: [Points to the ice] THIS is the insurance policy. My father went with the Sherpa guides to get the Yeti, to bring it back. We thought he surrendered the colors of yellow and red, but now he wears black because he walks in the land of madness. [Giant is rubbing his hands together and smiling] You see, I was right, evil does dwell in Hulk Hogan's heart, and I myself don't believe there is one bit of goodness left. [Crowd is chanting "Hogan Hogan"] You see, this is the only insurance that this big man needs.
Gene Okerlund: All right I thank you Kevin Sullivan. I don't know what's in there, Giant, but I'm nervous.
The Giant: [Grabs Gene's wrist] [evil laugh] Hogan, the rare white Bengal tiger, the biggest cat in the jungle. [Sullivan's eyes are rolling back into his head] You're running out of lives, Hogan. When I get you in the ring, Halloween Havoc, I will take your last life from you, and the WCW Heavyweight Championship Belt. You will find that the one true immortal is not you, but me, the Giant, the immortal Giant! [Evil laugh]
Gene Okerlund: [Turns back to Sullivan] This guy's finely tuned for Halloween Havoc. [Giant continues to laugh evilly] I don't know what you've done to him Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan, but he is ready.
Kevin Sullivan: He's ready, but what I saw sent shivers down my spine. When we plucked the whiskers of the rare white Bengal tiger [Giant imitates plucking whiskers] it snapped something inside of him and, like my father said, this has to be stopped. In Detroit, Hogan, the insurance policy is near [Giant does a throat-slashing gesture] . The WCW World Heavyweight Belt will be the Giant's.
The Giant: Mine!
Sting: [after he allegedly attacked Lex Luger] I want a chance to explain something that happened last Monday night at Nitro. Last Monday night, I was on an airplane flying from L.A. to Atlanta. When I got to Atlanta, I tuned in the TV to Nitro. And I thought I was watching a rerun. It was a very convincing film. Often imitated, but never duplicated, though, and what else did I see? I saw people, I saw wrestlers, I saw commentators, and I saw best friends doubt the Stinger. That's right, doubted the Stinger. So, I heard Lex Luger say "I know where he lives, I know where he works out, I'm gonna go get him!" So I said to myself "I'll just go into seclusion. I'll wait and see what happens on Saturday night." And I tuned in Saturday night and what'd I see? I saw more of the same. More doubt. Which brings me to Fall Brawl. I knew I had to get to Fall Brawl to get face to face with the Total Package, to let him know that it wasn't me. And what I got out of that was "No, Sting. I don't believe you, Sting." Well all I gotta say is I have been mediator, I have been babysitter. For Lex Luger, I have given him the benefit of the doubt about a thousand times in the last twelve months. Yeah. And I carry the WCW banner, and I have given my blood, my sweat, and my tears for WCW. So for all of those fans out there and all those wrestlers and people that never doubted the Stinger, I'll stand by you if you stand by me. But... but for all the people, all of the commentators, all of the wrestlers and all of the best friends who did doubt me, you can stick it. From now on, I consider myself a free agent. But that doesn't mean that you won't see the Stinger from time to time. I'm gonna pop in when you least expect it.
