->In between [[TestosteronePoisoning his make-out sessions with the skanks,]] Bischoff, taking center stage on a podium above the entrance ramp, began to preach the message of the Wrestling/NewWorldOrder to the crowd. His statement was clear: WCW sucks. It was a familiar rallying cry, one that was repeated over and over again to the point that no one watching the show could miss it. And even if they did ignore Bischoff's rantings, the presentation of WCW at the event would certainly sway their opinion.
