We see where the WWF is going after SummerSlam. Blood is spilled as a new feud is developed and a man is blinded by Martel’s fragrance. Who is involved? Find out…

At SNME #28 which was taped on September 18th, Warrior teamed with the Legion of Doom to beat Demolition to effectively end the feud between the six men.
WWF Intercontinental Championship Scene: (currently held by: Kerry Von Erich)
Von Erich successfully defended the championship at SNME #28 by defeating Haku at the event. He also has to continue to deal with the challenge of Mr. Perfect. There wasn’t much development between the two of them during the month, though.
WWF World Tag Team Championship Scene: (currently held by: The Hart Foundation)
There weren’t any angle developments involving the WWF World Tag Team Champions. Throughout the month they successfully defended the championships against Greg Valentine and the Honkytonk Man on the house show market.
- During the September 18th taping of WWF Superstars, Rick Martel sprayed Jake Roberts in the eyes with his fragrance Arrogance on the Brother Love Show.
- Randy Savage and Dusty Rhodes wrestled at SNME #28, but the main story of the match was Ted DiBiase and Virgil appearing at ringside and attacking Dusty’s son, Dustin Rhodes. They beat him so badly that Dustin was busted open. Dusty would leave the ring to cover his son up while taking the punishment from DiBiase.
- Hulk Hogan continued his feud with Earthquake. At SNME #28 Hogan teamed with Tugboat to beat Honkytonk Man and Greg Valentine by disqualification after Honky hit Tugboat with a guitar. However, Hogan would be attacked by Earthquake and was splashed by the big man until Tugboat saved his friend.
- Sgt. Slaughter and Nikolai Volkoff continued to have their feud as they traded waving their respective flags at SNME #28.
- Bobby Heenan continued to insult Big Bossman and his mother. During the September 19th taping of Wrestling Challenge, Heenan insulted Bossman during a match with Haku, but wasn’t able to prevent Bossman from winning the bout.
