1. The show kicks off with a pirate taking on a trash man. Lafitte got control with a swinging neck breaker after avoiding a splash. Lafitte also leaps off the top to hit Droese with a double axe handle on the floor. Droese battles back with a spine buster and signals for the end. Lafitte counters with a DDT and connects with a top rope senton splash to pickup the win. It was a decent match that could’ve been a lot worse.
2. Speaking of worse, Adam Bomb was in action against Henry Godwinn. It was a slow match with plenty of rest holds. Bomb was able to pin Godwinn with a rollup after he came off the ropes and countered a knee lift attempt.
3. WWF Intercontinental Champion Jeff Jarrett came out to give an announcement. Jarrett talks about having a ladder match with Razor Ramon and that Ramon was injured during the bout. He says the Roadie is going to win the KOTR and he will be taking on Savio Vega later tonight.
4. Alundra Blayze defends the WWF Women’s Championship against Bertha Faye. Faye misses a middle rope big splash but recovers to hit a butterfly suplex. Blayze rebounds and nails Faye with two middle rope dropkicks and gets the three count following a German suplex.
5. HHH works on Aldo after blocking a big splash by getting his knees up. HHH continues his offense with a vertical suplex and a back breaker. Aldo fought back with a head scissors and a leaping clothesline. Aldo almost won after a top rope cross body. HHH finished Aldo off with a pedigree.
6. Psycho Sid comes out to a cut a promo. Sid brags about injuring the WWF World Champion Diesel, who is not at the arena due to wrist injury. Sid tells us that the Undertaker will be joining Diesel at the hospital.
7. Yokozuna and Owen Hart get a really fast first fall after Yoko leg drops Billy after Bart was tossed to the floor by Owen. So, the champs are already up one fall to nothing and it’s been maybe ten seconds. Bart press slams Owen and Billy hit a double axe handle. Owen stops Bart with a knee to his back and hit a vertical suplex. Billy gets the hot tag and cleans house. The Gunns are able to pin Owen following a side slam/leg drop combo to tie up the match at one. Bart is stopped again by Owen with a knee strike to the back as he runs the ropes and Yoko finishes Bart off with a botched belly to belly suplex to retain the titles.
8. Sunny rips on the fans calling them overweight and morons. She clearly was a Rick Rude fan. I’m actually surprised that Doink was working the house show market at this point since his character is really stale. Skip just debuted on television so it shouldn’t a surprise that he won this one. Skip won with a simple inside cradle.
9. Vega recovers from being attacked before the bell by Jarrett with a scoop slam. Jarrett drives Vega face first into the canvas and follows up with a snap suplex. Jarrett chop blocks Vega’s leg and begins to work on the injured leg. Jarrett is almost rolled up as he goes for the figure four. Vega hit’s a Rock Bottom and delivers a big boot. Vega rams Jarrett into the ring post and Jarrett just walks away to be counted out.
10. Bigelow drops Kama and Tatanka with a face buster. Michaels dropped Tatanka with a top rope flying clothesline early on as well. Bigelow tosses Michaels into Kama to hit a cross body. Michaels continues with a swinging neck breaker on Tatanka before tagging out. Kama rams Bigelow into the ring post after pulling him out of the ring. Bigelow fights back with a spin kick on Tatanka. Tatanka plants Bigelow with a DDT and connects with a top rope overhand chop for a near fall. Bigelow is suplexed by both men but he comes back with a clothesline to drop both heels. Michaels gets the tag and soon super kicks Tatanka, which allows Bigelow to hit a top rope diving head butt for the win. After the match, all four men briefly brawl on the floor.
11. Sid bails to the floor after trading right hands with Taker. Taker walks the ropes and jumps down across Sid’s arm. Sid stops Taker with a side slam to gain the advantage. My tape ends with Taker missing a leaping clothesline. However, I have read that Kama and Tatanka end up coming out to cause the disqualification to end the show.
This show was rather bad. The under-card before the tag title match was a pain to get through. Even after the tag bout the tag match with Michaels was probably the only other good match on the whole show. I can’t imagine this show being worth going to since there was nothing that was overly entertaining and most of the matches were average at best. That being said, this one gets a thumbs down from me.
