Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan, and Jim Neidhart are in the booth to conclude the tapings in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan are tonight’s hosts.
McMahon and Heenan are quickly joined by Sergeant Slaughter, Colonel Mustafa, and General Adnan because those three insist that they are taking over the show. Slaughter tells WWF Champion Hulk Hogan that he will do whatever it takes to regain the WWF Championship. He calls out a muscular guy in the audience who is wearing a “Hulk Rules” shirt, who comes down to confront him. Slaughter says that fan does not have what it takes to survive Slaughter’s boot camp. The fan accepts the challenge.
Vince McMahon, Randy Savage, and Roddy Piper are in the booth, broadcasting from Omaha, Nebraska, the site of the recent Saturday Night’s Main Event. The show’s opening now has a generic country beat with some wrestling highlights, continuing a downgrade from the Ultimate Warrior introduction a year prior.
Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan are tonight’s hosts for the first Tuesday edition of Prime Time Wrestling. This show is a post-WrestleMania celebration that is originating from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Okerlund narrates still photographs of the career ending match between the Ultimate Warrior and Randy Savage, the WWF tag team title match between the Hart Foundation and the Nasty Boys, and Virgil’s match with Ted DiBiase at WrestleMania. It is also announced that Hulk Hogan won the WWF Championship for a record-breaking third time. Footage shows Hogan’s entrance and post-match celebration. Then, Okerlund transitions to locker room footage where Slaughter tosses a fireball into Hogan’s eyes when he returns to the locker room and beats on him with a chair. This means that the feud between the two will continue.
Gorilla Monsoon and Hacksaw Jim Duggan start the broadcast on commentary, which is taking place in Los Angeles, California. According to thehistoryofwwe.com, the show drew a crowd of 15,500. The show drew an estimated buyrate of 2.8 (an estimated 400,000 buys). This was a decline from the 3.8 buyrate of WrestleMania VI, with 150,000 fewer households buying the show versus the previous year, and marked the first time that fewer fans purchased a WrestleMania than the prior edition.
