Sean Mooney and Bobby Heenan are hosting tonight’s Halloween-themed edition. Heenan criticizes Halloween as a commoner’s holiday. Some kids “ring the doorbell” to the studio and are given candy by Mooney, showing off Hulk Hogan costumes.
Remember to cast your Doomie ballot prior to Saturday at midnight!
Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper, and Randy Savage are in the booth for the last show of the Ottawa, Ontario, Canada taping cycle.
The video montage to lead into the show has been updated to feature Sid Justice and show Virgil holding the Million Dollar Championship. The Ultimate Warrior has been scrubbed.
Vince McMahon and Roddy Piper are doing commentary, this time coming from Rochester, New York. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, the taping took place on August 19 and drew a crowd of 7,000 fans.
Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan, and Roddy Piper are in the booth, and they are live from New York City, New York. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, the show took place on Monday, August 26 and drew a crowd of 17,474, 15,643 paid for their tickets. The show had an estimated buyrate of 2.70 (an estimated 405,000 buys), a decline from the 3.80 buyrate (and 507,000 buys) that the previous year’s SummerSlam drew.
The opening video package has a great line from Vince McMahon, as he hypes the show’s “Match Made in Heaven” and “Match Made in Hell” as nuptials turning to napalm.
Jamison hears a radio announcement in Bobby Heenan’s dressing room that six “deranged lunatics” have escaped from the Stanford Sanitarium and have escaped on a yellow bus.
Sean Mooney, Lord Alfred Hayes, and Gene Okerlund are shown blowing up balloons for Randy Savage’s bachelor party. They are tired and complaining that Heenan, who organized the party, has not done any setup work. Gorilla Monsoon hauls Heenan onto the set, which has no audience. Koko B. Ware, the Bushwhackers, and Jamison show up, with the Bushwhackers bringing a long sub sandwich.
Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper, and Randy Savage are in the booth, starting a new set of television tapings from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, the taping took place on July 9 and drew a crowd of 8,500.
The Texas Tornado’s squash from Prime Time leads off the telecast. The only twist is it has new commentary from the Superstars team and Piper talks of getting in another motorcycle accident, thereby scuttling future house show appearances against Irwin R. Schyster.
Irwin R. Schyster reminds Bobby Heenan that the makeup he needs for Prime Time is tax deductible. Jamison wanders by and is scoulded, deciding not to enter “Dressing Room 3.” He does go into “Dress Room 4” where he encounters Bret Hart, who tells him that he cannot talk to him because he is busy. That makes Bret look like a prick, so he gives Jamison his shades to make up for it.
When Heenan makes his entrance he gets a loud applause, but that is because Jamison is behind him when he does so. Heenan is hosting tonight’s show with Sean Mooney. Mooney asks Heenan to take it easy on him because his sister is in the crowd. Heenan immediately asks her if Mooney tried on their mother’s clothes a lot when he was young.
Jamison is lost and wanders backstage. Bobby Heenan is upset that he is back there and tells him to get lost. Jamison finds his way into Ted DiBiase’s locker room. He finds the Million Dollar Belt and tries it on, posing in front of a mirror. He cannot take it off, though, and that is where the show lead-in begins.
Sean Mooney and Heenan are the hosts. As they start, a nervous Jamison, who is wearing a robe, sneaks into the studio and finds his usual seat. It does not take long for an irate Sensational Sherri to run out and scream that someone has stolen the Million Dollar Belt.
Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan are tonight’s hosts. This does not make Heenan happy as it is Monsoon’s first appearance on Prime Time since the format change after February 4. Monsoon chides Heenan over his behavior on the show over the last few months, noting that viewers have been complaining.
A replay of Randy Savage proposing to Elizabeth on Superstars is shown.
