Flanked by the groove of the Insane Clown Posse, the Oddities were set to face LOD 2000 and Droz. However, Hawk entered the ring early in half his gear, and proceeded to dance with Golga, the giant Silva and Kurrgan! During the bout, Hawk exited the apron to pummel the Clowns for no reason whatsoever and faced the wrath of Silva once he got back in the ring. The giant powerbombed his foe and covered him for the win. After the bout, Animal and Droz turned their backs on Hawk as he danced his way back to the locker room.
