Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan host another episode. Heenan brings out a mannequin dressed like McMahon and rips the hair off because Mr. Perfect alleged last week that McMahon’s hair was not real. McMahon walks out and Heenan pulls the pants down on the mannequin, saying he has always wanted to do that to McMahon.
The Tito Santana-Mountie match from Saturday Night’s Main Event is shown.
Gene Okerlund’s Update segment replays Sensational Sherri’s failed attempt to get Andre the Giant to manage her.
Bret Hart appears in the studio. He says that the Barbarian lacks the brains to beat him. Heenan relays a message from his man, saying that the Barbarian is going to turn Bret’s “Hitman” nickname against him when he hits him a lot. Bret was still trying to become more comfortable in segments like this as he stumbled through some of his promo.
The Barbarian (w/Bobby Heenan) (3-2-1) pins Buck Zumhoff with the flying clothesline at 2:22:
Zumhoff, whose last name was often spelled “Zumhofe,” was trained by Verne Gagne and made his professional debut in 1972. He reached his highest fame as a light heavyweight competitor in the AWA, winning the promotion’s Light Heavyweight title three times. He was also a tag team champion with Iceman Parsons in World Class. Among wrestling fans, Zumofe is most known for despicable criminal behavior as he was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison in 2014 for sexually abusing his daughter. It was baffling that he was signed to appear here well before that as he was convicted of fourth degree sexual misconduct with a minor in January 1989.
The crowd watches the match in silence, not reacting when the Barbarian stops Zumhoff with a big boot when Zumhoff runs the ropes. The Barbarian drops three elbow drops and finishes with the flying clothesline.
Bret Hart puts himself over as the WWF’s best technical wrestler and tells Heenan that after he gets past the Barbarian he wants a shot at Mr. Perfect’s Intercontinental title. Heenan responds that Bret would get a good workout against Perfect but would not be able to win the championship. McMahon showcases some of Bret’s cartoons, one that shows Perfect running away from a bulldog. He then asks Bret to make a drawing of WWF Tag Team Champions the Nasty Boys later, which Bret agrees to do.
The Nasties and Jimmy Hart are the next guests after a commercial break. They scream that it is time for the Legion of Doom to get nastisized. They spray paint the Vince mannequin red and do the same to Lord Alfred Hayes. Poor Hayes gets the spray paint in his hair and does not look happy about it.
Virgil (4-0) defeats Tom Stone via submission to the Million Dollar Dream at 1:43:
Virgil’s offense is mostly composed of punches. After dazing Stone, he locks in the Million Dollar Dream, thereby sending a message to Ted DiBiase.
Sergeant Slaughter, Colonel Mustafa, and General Adnan say that they have plans to take over Prime Time Wrestling for the full two hours next week.
Jimmy Hart tells McMahon that the Nasty Boys are making Titan Towers nasty.
Call 1-900-454-HULK to access the Hulk Hogan Hotline and get a daily message from the WWF champion! The call costs $1.49 for the first minute and 99 cents for every minute thereafter. McMahon challenges Heenan to play the interactive game.
The Jake Roberts-Earthquake angle from Superstars airs.
Bret Hart acts like he is painting while the Nasties use spray paint over posters in the hallways of Titan Towers. The posters they cover are the Legion of Doom and Bret Hart.
Heenan plays the interactive game and fails.
Haku (w/Bobby Heenan) (0-4) pins Jim Evans after a thrust kick at 1:41:
Haku has been on the struggle bus in 1991, but he is able to break his losing streak by deconstructing Evans in this squash. Haku and the Barbarian had potential as a tag team but the WWF opted to end the experiment after WrestleMania and return both men to singles competition.
Promo time with Sean Mooney! Greg Valentine talks about turning a new leaf in 1991 and how he wrestles better without Jimmy Hart confusing him.
Heenan makes fun of the Rosasti Sisters in the audience, saying they are “Buns and Noses.”
The Ultimate Warrior-Sergeant Slaughter match from Saturday Night’s Main Event is shown, along with the post-match run-ins by the Undertaker and Hulk Hogan.
The Warrior comes into the studio. He is more subdued than most of his promos, saying that he is thinking about the challenged posed by the Undertaker.
The Big Bossman (15-0-1) defeats Rick Rice with the Bossman Slam at 1:49:
Rice was trained by Eddie Sharkey and rose through the Minnesota professional wrestling ranks, first for Sharkey’s Pro Wrestling America in 1986 and then for the AWA between 1988 and 1989. While in the AWA he formed a tag team called the Top Guns with Jon Paul and later worked as a tag team partner of Derrick Dukes. He started doing enhancement work for the WWF the year prior.
The Mountie and Jimmy Hart do an insert promo about how they are tired of hearing about his brand of justice because local law does not trump the international justice that the Mountie dishes out on a regular basis. The camera makes sure to do some product placement for the Big Bossman’s sunglasses as he methodically works over Rice and wins a third straight match.
More promos with Mooney! Ted DiBiase and Sensational Sherri tell Virgil that he will be sorry when he wises up and realizes what he has lost. DiBiase also warns Roddy Piper that he will need his crutches again soon.
McMahon quizzes Heenan on WWF trivia about participants in the WrestleMania I main event. That leads into more hotline hype.
Bret Hart continues his artwork while the Nasties terrorize a receptionist at the Titan Towers front desk and spray paint her.
The Berzerker (w/Mr. Fuji) (7-0) beats Jim Powers with a knee drop off the second rope at 4:03:
Powers has no defense for the Berzerker, getting slammed when he tries a body press off the ropes and eating a few big boots. The crowd could not care less about the gimmick, yelling several times that they are bored. What makes the squash notable is that the Berzerker finally wins a match via pinfall, using a knee drop off the second rope.

The Texas Tornado (14-0) beats Al Burke with the discus punch at 1:52:
Burke was a longtime WWF enhancement talent, first working for the company in 1988. He later worked for Herb Abrams’ UWF as Dr. Feelgood and made a cameo as Billy Idol’s biggest fan in the Adam Sandler film The Wedding Singer.
The Tornado’s next feud is revealed in the split screen as the Warlord and Slick tell the Tornado that he stands no chance against the strongest man in the WWF. Burke ducks the Tornado’s first attempt at the discus punch but the Tornado throws him back in the ring and connects the second time.
Bret Hart reveals a drawing of the Legion of Doom, implying that he sees them as the tag team champions. The Nasty Boys come out and spray paint over Bret’s drawing. In response, Bret has the Nasties sit for a drawing with Jimmy Hart and after taking a few minutes to pose them, he gets paint on some brushes, wipes it on the Nasties faces, and sticks one of the brushes in Hart’s mouth. Somehow that incapacitates the Nasties so Bret can walk out unscathed.
Tune in next week to see Sergeant Slaughter, Virgil, and the Legion of Doom in the studio!
The Last Word: If fans watched Saturday Night’s Main Event, there was no need for them to tune into this broadcast. Unless of course they wanted to see a lot of squashes and the Nasty Boys act like the Joker’s sidekicks in the 1989 edition of Batman.
