Mortal Kombat / WCW Cross-promotion on TBS May 1998 - Mistake/Video found

Mortal Kombat Premiere on TBS with WCW wrestlers = MYSTERY SOLVED

As many of you know, I have been frantically trying to find a copy of MK from the 1998 TBS premiere in hopes of seeing the Cyber Kombat segments. Unfortunately, a simple misreading of the TBS site, the attached news article, and review of a very bad but partial copy of MK from the TBS 1998 premiere (but with a CyberKOmbat promo intercut), it is clear the wrestlers never appeared on TBS but CyberKOmbat was a program streamed ONLINE and during the commercials only. We can only assume some of the stuff from the TBS site was talked about by the WCW wrestlers but unfortunately, all 9 recorded segments are currently lost. If ANYONE has any of these copies (KingdomMK archivisits are a good hope), mainly Realplayer files, now is the time to speak. These files are AUDIO ONLY. Below is the series of evidence to help me solve this mystery. Unfortunately we won't be able to tell what TBS did to censor the profanity as audio is inaudible. WARNING - THE VIDEO IS VERY JUMPY AND SHOULD NOT BE WATCHED IF YOU HAVE EPILEPSY OR SEIZURES. MY EYES HURT JUST AFTER 10 MINUTES OF IT AND THEY ARE KINDA CROSSED.

TBS Cyber Kombat site - http://web.archive.org/web/20001109180300/http://tbssuperstation.com/mortalkombat/

News article - http://adage.com/article/news/tbs-launches-campaign-mortal-kombat-flick-cross-promotion-features-web-site-wrestling-tv-premier/65901/

Video segment from some of premiere (WARNING: REALLY CHOPPY. CAN MAKE YOU SICK OR SEE DOUBLE) - http://www.veoh.com/watch/v45968927zXpzZqef

A clean segment from TBS (may not be from premiere) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD0EPsl7afM

And I repeat... CyberKombat DID NOT HAPPEN ON TBS - YOU HAD TO LOG ONTO YOUR COMPUTER AND LISTEN IN TO THE AUDIO COMMENTARY BETWEEN COMMERCIAL SEGMENTS. and thus a huge burden has been relieved from my shoulders. Now for the Annihilation Premiere for "Movies for guys who like movies" hunt...

UPDATE:

Only the first and third Madlibs work. I can't seem to find the second one working.
