WWE legend "Stone Cold" Steve Austin has selected 14 men and women to compete to become the next WWE Superstar or Diva. Steve welcomes them at the WWE SmackDown arena, but the only part they will play in tonight's show is doing clean up duty backstage. Steve puts all the contestants through "Three Minutes of Hell" by running the ropes. Jeremiah runs so hard he blows his false teeth out. Rima is caught cheating when Steve and the trainers notice she has padded her ass for the challenge. After deliberating on the best and worst, Steve announces the Worst Three: Ariane, Eric and Michelle. Eric finally shows some fire when he talks about his personal motivation for winning the WWE contract. Steve questions Michelle's ability to live on the road with a baby daughter at home, but it's Ariane's lack of experience that proves to be her downfall. Steve asks for her belt and eliminates her from the competition.
