Instead, Stump decided to have Cryin' Houn' and a rookie wrestler tag-team-battle Leonardo and Donatello, with Cryin' Houn' set to win. Cryin' Houn' pretended to search the audience for a suitable partner, but was interrupted by the arrival of Hakk-R, and was displeased that he was being left out of the fight. When Hakk-R attacked him as well, Cryin' Houn' retaliated by trying to smash the assassin.
Cryin' Houn' accompanied Stump and the Turtles back to the hot rod spacecraft, where Stump was already scheming the next phases in his and Antrax' careers. He was outraged when Raphael declared that wrestling was fake, and attacked him.
