Vince McMahon, Randy Savage, and Roddy Piper provide commentary, still located in Rockford, Illinois.
The Legion of Doom’s squash from Prime Time Wrestling is the opening bout.
Gene Okerlund’s Update segment replays the Mountie’s beatdown of the Big Bossman several weeks ago. The Big Bossman says it is time for the Mountie to taste his kind of justice.
Ted DiBiase’s squash from Prime Time Wrestling is shown.
The Texas Tornado (16-0) defeats the Brooklyn Brawler with the discus punch at 1:28:
Piper is still mad over not being invited to the fitness exposition at the WBF Championship, giving McMahon more opportunities to talk about bodybuilding instead of wrestling. The Tornado coasts through the Brawler with a slam and his discus punch.
Earthquake (w/Jimmy Hart) (8-1) pins Kevin Kruger with the Earthquake Splash at 1:36:
Kruger is hyped by Piper as a young guy with potential that never quits. In the split screen, Earthquake and Hart promise to give Lucifer a ten on the Richter scale. Despite Kruger’s alleged potential, he is no match for Earthquake, who powerslams him and squashes him with the Earthquake Splash.
Okerlund gets into the ring because Hart says he has a big announcement. He argues that if anyone wants to face the Nasty Boys for the WWF Tag Team Championship they are going to have to go through his new tag team of Earthquake and Andre the Giant. Okerlund is skeptical that Hart has signed Andre to a contract and has Andre come to the ring. Andre shakes hands with Earthquake but tells Okerlund he has not signed with Hart. Humiliated, Hart gets in Andre’s face and calls him a liar and before Andre can respond, Earthquake smashes Hart’s megaphone into Andre’s left knee. Earthquake elbow drops and splashes the knee as Hart cheers him on. The crowd wants someone to make a save but no one does. Earthquake eventually gets tired of the beating and leaves. Andre does not want any help from a sea of WWF officials, using the guardrail to start moving toward the locker room as the show goes to a commercial break.
The Orient Express (w/Mr. Fuji) (7-4) defeat Dave Sigfritts & John Anderson when Tanaka pins Anderson after a superkick-German suplex combination at 1:48:
The World League of American Football’s season was over, so McMahon tells fans that the next episode of Prime Time Wrestling will be on Monday. The Express go through the motions, doing nothing spectacular to beat their opponents. Booking aside, what is not helping the Express is that they have started wearing black rights instead of red and that makes them less dynamic.
Bodybuilder Mike Christian puts himself over as a warrior while working out on an exercise machine.
The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) (17-0) pins Dan Robbins with the Tombstone at 1:42:
Bearer speaks in the split screen about how the Ultimate Warrior will not be so lucky to escape death a second time. Robbins’ small size makes the Undertaker’s offense look powerful, especially the Tombstone as the Undertaker is able to lift him up a bit after the Tombstone spot to make it appear that Robbins head smashed hard into the canvas. After the match, the Undertaker and Bearer put Robbins in a body bag and the Undertaker carries it to the locker room.
Tune in next week to see the Dragon, the Berzerker, Virgil, the Big Bossman, and Sergeant Slaughter in action! Also, Irwin R. Schyster will be a guest on the Funeral Parlor!
The Last Word: The Andre the Giant beatdown was a good segment. It helps the Earthquake continue to re-establish his dominance on the heels of crushing Damien during his feud with Jake Roberts. Aside from that, there was not much in this show as discussions of bodybuilding and the WBF continue to overshadow the in-ring product.
