Pillman's first post-accident appearance. More of an angle than a match, as Pillman challenges Whipwreck and Mikey slaps him, leading to RVD jumping him and making quick work of him. Then we get a music video recapping the match that's almost as long as the match itself (??) and Joey Styles interviews Pillman from ringside, who is sitting in his wheelchair.

Yeah, this was the "Niggas with Attitude" incident, and that doesn't make air. Mikey literally having to hold the chair *twice* so RVD can knock it into his face was pretty eye-rolling (this is probably the debut of the Van Daminator, and thank goodness for that) but it's a fresh look at RVD for him to be booked as a killer heel, at least. Pillman hasn't mellowed at all since the car wreck, obviously. This promo was pretty good and I really kinda wish we'd gotten the whole thing, just to see exactly what he said.
