A week before the Super Bowl, a doctor from the football commissioner's office finds high levels of "pseudo steroids" in Jack Magniconte's system. The commissioner's office requests a second round of tests to nail down the irregularities, but Jack refuses. Jack later decides to not play in the Super Bowl and goes into hiding. After the Smashers lose Super Bowl XXI to the Austin Wreckers without him, Jack decides to go through with the doctor's second round of tests.
