Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan take care of commentary, wrapping up the long taping in Niagara Falls, New York.
Crush’s match from Prime Time Wrestling is the first bout on the show.
Lord Alfred Hayes’ Special Report recaps the Ultimate Warrior-Papa Shango feud.
Non-Title Match: Money Incorporated (WWF Tag Team Champions w/Jimmy Hart) (9-1) beat Jim Brunzell & Sonny Blaze when Ted DiBiase makes Blaze submit to the Million Dollar Dream at 2:29:
Brunzell failed to beat Money Incorporated on Prime Time Wrestling so he gets a new partner in another attempt today. The Natural Disasters do a split screen promo about how they will catch up to Money Incorporated at some point soon and capture the tag team titles. Monsoon says that he has heard a match may be coming where the titles could change hands on a count out or disqualification. Heenan tries to put over Brunzell’s quickness but Monsoon does not bite on that. And Brunzell is not in the match long, tagging Blaze who takes a long beating from the champions before getting finished with DiBiase’s Million Dollar Dream.
Virgil (11-3) beats Von Krus via submission to the Million Dollar Dream at 2:21:
Virgil matches have been used recently to hype the WBF Championship and this is no exception. Heenan argues that Lex Luger is not competing because he does not want to make the other competitors look bad. The squash is loose and sloppy, ending when Virgil floats over Krus on a blind charge and awkwardly applies the Million Dollar Dream.
The Mountie (w/Jimmy Hart) (10-4) pins Bill Pierce after the dropkick at 1:15:
Heenan says that WWF President Jack Tunney’s edict against the Mountie’s big shock stick is unfair because the Big Bossman is still allowed to carry his nightstick to the ring. The Mountie and Hart do an insert promo about how the Mountie felt power when he shocked Slaughter weeks ago. After making quick work of Pierce with some strikes, the Mountie gets out the shock stick and threatens Pierce with it. He is also showered with boos by announcing who he is to the crowd at the end.
A clip of the Jimmy Hart feature on the Crunch Classic Coliseum Video is shown.
Gene Okerlund interviews Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart. Bret says that facing Roddy Piper at WrestleMania VIII was the toughest match of his career. When it comes to Shawn Michaels, Bret acknowledges his ability but says they are different in two ways. First, he does not have to pay women to go out with him and he has the Intercontinental Championship while Michaels does not. Bret’s abilities on the mic continue to improve as this was an adequate promo for a feud of this level.
The Nasty Boys (w/Jimmy Hart) (9-0) defeat Kerry Davis & Mark Kay when Jerry Sags pins Davis after the Trip to Nastyville at 2:55:
Although there is discussion of a High Energy-Nasty Boys feud, there have hardly been any promos for it. The Nasties pummel their opponents in turn, going through the motions for their tenth win of 1992.
El Matador (16-1-1) pins the Dublin Destroyer after El Paso Del Muerte at 2:27:
Heenan chides El Matador’s theme song, saying he cannot whistle it like he can Shawn Michaels’ or the Mountie’s. El Matador has made more televised appearances than any other talent to this point the year but has done nothing of note since his loss to Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania. As El Matador kills time with headlocks, Heenan freaks out when Monsoon claims to have booked Heenan on a barrel venture over Niagara Falls. El Matador eventually fights out of the corner, blasts the Destroyer with a knee lift, and strikes him with El Paso del Muerte.
Kamala (w/Harvey Wippleman & Kim Chee) (3-0) pins Bob Wisseman after a splash to the back at 1:48:
The commentary discussion pivots to talking about the WWF title picture and how Randy Savage is in pursuit of Ric Flair to avenge Elizabeth, something Monsoon acknowledges is unusual as the challenger usually chases the champion. Heenan likens Kamala’s ankles to ring announcer Mike McGuirk’s, the highlight of the squash as Kamala chops Wisseman, slams him, and wins after a splash to the back.
Tune in next week to see Tatanka, Shawn Michaels, the Natural Disasters, Papa Shango, and Ric Flair in action!
The Last Word: This was a boring edition of the show, filled with squash matches of little consequence or replay value. Virgil going back to the Million Dollar Dream as a finisher is odd as he was trying to get away from that but has drifted back to his old ways.
To end May, the WWF toured parts of Canada and the Great Lakes. Here were the results of some of those house shows, courtesy of thehistoryofwwe.com:
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada – Winnipeg Arena – May 29, 1992 (2,500): Nailz beat Jim Brunzell via submission…Virgil pinned the Brooklyn Brawler…Jacques Rougeau beat Sergeant Slaughter via count out…Earthquake pinned Ted DiBiase (originally scheduled to be a WWF tag team title match between Money Incorporated and the Natural Disasters)…Tatanka beat Bob Bradley…The Texas Tornado pinned Skinner…The Undertaker pinned the Berzerker…WWF Champion Randy Savage beat Ric Flair via reverse decision. Flair had originally won after hitting Savage with a foreign object given to him by Mr. Perfect but a road agent came out, told the referee what happened, and the referee reversed the original decision.
Auburn Hills, Michigan – The Palace – May 30, 1992 (4,100): Crush beat Kato via submission to a head vice…Rick Martel pinned El Matador with a Flair pin…The Nasty Boys beat High Energy when Brian Knobbs pinned Kato…Hacksaw Jim Duggan (substituting for the British Bulldog) defeated Repo Man via disqualification…The Legion of Doom defeated the Beverly Brothers…Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart pinned Shawn Michaels with a sunset flip…The Ultimate Warrior pinned Papa Shango.
Backstage News*: Randy Savage and his wife, Elizabeth, have separated after seven years of marriage. The WWF is under the impression that Elizabeth is done with the wrestling business.
-The Big Bossman will be taken off the road for at least a month to sell his beating by the unknown convict on WWF Superstars.
-Since ring announcer Mel Phillips has appeared as a ring announcer in old matches on Prime Time Wrestling in recent weeks there are rumors that he might be brought back. Dave Meltzer believes this to be a matter of coincidence as the WWF needed to use older matches to fill television time but since Phillips has appeared the last few weeks he is not discounting it as much as he originally did.
-Marty Jannetty was sentenced for cocaine possession and his altercation with police officers in Tampa, Florida on January 25. He received six months house arrest, 30 months probation, 250 hours of community service, and is required to do a urine test every week for three months and bi-weekly for the three months thereafter.
-Vince McMahon is hoping to use the WWF and WBF to shill Titan Sports’ new food supplement ICOPRO.
-In talent relations news, the Warlord and Colonel Mustafa are done with the company.
