The cooler is in the ring, which means a beer bash! Austin gets a couple of beers and toasts with Broken Skull IPA. He gets a microphone. He calls for a hell yeah three times and gets it. He calls attention to the stage and pays respect to the legends. He pays respect to the crew and the WWE Universe, calling us all part of the WWE Family. He recaps his week in his classic promo style. WHAT?! Austin calls the legends down for a drink and toasts to the fans. Austin & HHH hug. Austin tells a story and shoots. The show goes off the air with the legends toasting.
