Vince McMahon and Mr. Perfect are in the booth, broadcasting the last episode from the taping in Syracuse, New York. Perfect makes milk puns that he tries to make applicable to the goo that came out of the Ultimate Warrior’s head last week.
Opening Contest: The Legion of Doom (w/Paul Ellering) (7-1) beat Kato & Rich Mitchell when Hawk pins Mitchell after the Doomsday Device at 1:50:
Kato resumes his role as a whipping boy for the LOD, taking a multitude of clotheslines in and out of the ring before tagging out. The Beverly Brothers and the Genius make fun of the LOD’s haircuts, saying they wear their hair that way because they are sissies. Mitchell has to take the Doomsday Device finisher but avoids the long, brutal beating that usually sets that up. McMahon makes sure that fans know that the LOD will be at the WBF Fitness Expo.
Gene Okerlund’s Update segment recaps Papa Shango’s voodoo curses on the Ultimate Warrior.
The next match is supposed to be Papa Shango against Brian Brieger. Before the match, Shango goes into a trance, the lights go out, and when they come back on Brieger is unconscious on the canvas with black goo on his head and his boots are on fire. Afterward, Sean Mooney reminds children at home not to play with fire.
Sergeant Slaughter (3-1) beats Bob Bradley via submission to the Cobra Clutch at 1:44:
The Mountie and Jimmy Hart do an insert promo repeating their aim to get Slaughter to surrender. Slaughter is less nimble than he has been over the last few years but he does an admirable job keeping a tired crowd fired up throughout, blasting Bradley with a clothesline and getting the crowd to cheer for the Cobra Clutch.
Rick Martel (12-3-1) defeats Jim Powers (1-4) via submission to the Boston Crab at 1:53:
McMahon keeps going into WBF hype, hyping how the WBF Championship is the biggest drug-free competition in the world. Martel does an insert promo calling Tatanka “buffalo breath” and the repeating an earlier claim that Tatanka will be going down a “trail of tears” if he wants to fight him again. Powers lands some clotheslines and gets a sunset flip for two. However, he misses a dropkick and Martel applies the Boston Crab to win the match with one move.
The Natural Disasters (12-0) beat Dwayne Gill & Mike Fury when Typhoon pins Fury after the Tidal Wave at 2:57:
The Disasters attack their opponents right after the bell and Gill takes a double underhook suplex from Typhoon, which sends him out of the ring. WWF Tag Team Champions Money Incorporated do a split screen promo about how they are prepared for any disaster. Fury ends up taking more of the Disasters offense, a curious choice because the smaller Gill would make the Disasters’ moves look more devastating.
The Big Bossman (12-1-1) pins Dave Roulette after the Bossman Slam at 1:06:
The Bossman makes quick work of Roulette, seemingly distracted as he wonders if the unknown convict lurks somewhere.
After the bell, the Bossman slaps Roulette a few times until the unknown convict, dressed in an orange jump suit with “D.O.C. 902714” on the back, comes out of the crowd, grabs the Bossman’s nightstick off the canvas, and attacks the Cobb County law enforcement officer. The convict handcuffs the Bossman to the top rope and uses the nightstick to strike the Bossman’s legs before doing a coup de grace by striking the Bossman in the head. The convict unlocks the Bossman and then handcuffs the Bossman’s hands behind his back, choking the Bossman with the nightstick and kicking the Bossman in the head and the gut. Eventually the convict leaves and WWF officials put the Bossman on a stretcher. This was a brutal beatdown that was a great way to introduce a new character.
The Berzerker (w/Mr. Fuji) (9-2) beats Glen Ruth via count out at 2:01:
The Berzerker delivers a big boot to his opponent before the opening bell and Ruth’s chances of an upset end there as McMahon and Perfect prefer to talk about the previous segment.
A replay of Crush’s vignette about eating guys like the Mountie and Rick Martel for lunch is shown.
Tune in next week to see Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart, the Beverly Brothers, and Crush in action! Also, there will be a special interview with Papa Shango!
The Last Word: The unknown convict’s attack on the Big Bossman was the best angle at this taping as it was realistic and fans had never seen someone manhandle the Bossman to that degree before. It also creates a good feud for the Bossman, something that he has not had since beating the Mountie at SummerSlam last year. The WWF is also trying its best to get Papa Shango over but he was in another goofy segment today that is in stark contrast to the Bossman beatdown. After all, if someone can set their opponent on fire why would they not do that before every match and win by default?
