Austin says it would be easy to stun Vince but the big problem is Vince’s “overactive grapefruits” so he wants to help him out. He kicks Vince low and low blows him. Austin stuns Coachman and has a beer bash.
After they go off the air, Austin asks the crowd if they want to see him drink a beer with Vince. He says it is his first time in the Garden in years. Vince takes it and Austin hits the stunner. Austin does a long celebration. He gives Jim Ross a beer and takes his cowboy hat.
Vince and Coach get up. Austin says the only way he’s not going to kick their ass is if they sing. Vince asks Coach if he can sing harmony. They badly sing “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”. Austin knocked their heads together. He helps Coach up then hits another stunner.
