End of show
My Take: Quebecers/Kid/Jannetty match was pretty damn good. I can’t imagine Kid and Jannetty actually having the titles for long considering the Quebecers have a pretty big pay per view match with the Hart Brothers. Didn’t like Randy Savage shoving cake into the face of IRS. That just comes across very weak in my opinion. Hopefully Bam-Bam Bigelow can start working with better talent in the coming months and that Bastion Booger is no longer a player for the WWF.
