It then cuts to Vince MacMahon on the screen.
Vince McMahon: Well, Well, Well, looks like I finally won the Monday Night Wars, it also looks Like Ted Turners 'WCW Boys', couldn't cut what was needed to stay in this business. Now this brings me to what I'm going to do with WCW, should I put it on the self? Should I turn it into something like MY WWF?............Well I don't think so, next Monday night, all WCW superstars are requested at RAW, so I can look you all in the face individually and say YOUR FIRED, and Eric Biscoff I wish yo...............
Hit Bischoff's music
Eric Bischoff: You know Vince...... While you have been rambling on about what your going to do with WCW, I've been making plans for what I'm going to do with WCW! You said earlier tonight, 'Who would have thought Vince MacMahon would ever open up a WCW broadcast', Well I've just fixed that problem, because we will never see you open up a WCW broadcast again, you know why? Because I've have just bought all rights to WCW!!!!!! So I only got one thing to say...... Good bye Vince!
Eric Bischoff: Now for what I'm going to do with WCW, hmmmmmm Ah, I am as of now stripping Ric Flair as CEO of WCW, next I am going to take all belts tonight and make them vacant, so champs, would you please come out here.
Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman (Cruiser weight tag champs come out), Pulumbo and O'Haire (tag champs), Shane Helms (cruiserweight champ), and finally Booker T (US champ and WCW world Heavyweight Champ).
Eric Bischoff: Thank you, I much appreciate this, if would all give me your belts and leave, I promise you will have your chance at getting them back.
They all stand around ringside looking ateach other, Shane throws his in first and then the rest do, but Booker gets up on the aporn and gets in the ring.
Booker T hesitates and asks for a mic.
Booker T: Eric what is up with dis?
Eric Bischoff: Booker, leave your belts and you will find out, I'm sorry for what has happened in the past between you and me, but please trust me.
Booker T hesitates and then throws his belts at Biscoff
Eric Bischoff: OK now that that is done, its time for some changes, on April 12th there will be a new ppv airing, WCW Big Bang, everything will be anew. It is time for change around here, and I'm the man to do it.........
Bischoff smiles as Nitro fades off the air.
