Angle Developments/Notes:
1. Craig DeGeorge conducted an interview with Rick Rude and Bobby Heenan this week. Rude says that everyone knows what happened between himself and Jake Roberts wife. Rude saw the look in her eyes and wanted to give her a thrill of a lifetime. Rick knows that some ladies play hard to get. Rude asks Jake if it hurts to know that his wife wants him or that he can’t do anything about it. Heenan looks for a woman in the crowd. A lady gets to the podium to kiss Rude. Rick wastes no time and makes out with her.

2. Boris and Nikolai attack Hogan before the bell but Hulk fights them off. Hogan clotheslines Boris in the corner as the fans go nuts. Boris gets control with several strikes and boots to keep Hogan on the canvas. Boris gets a near fall following a backbreaker. Hogan begins to go into Hulk Up mode already. Hogan hits a big boot, scoop slam and leg drop to win the match. After the match, Hogan hits a leg drop on Nikolai as well. Slick is in the ring and Hogan delivers an atomic drop.

3. Next week, WWF World Champion Randy Savage squares off against Virgil! DiBiase says that Savage is lousy and he will allow Virgil to get his hands on Savage. We hear from Savage as well. Randy Savage suggests that he will be getting rid of Virgil next week for good!

Final Thoughts:
A better episode with the promo by Rude and squash match involving Hogan. The show is better to watch with the high profile guys getting airtime. An average episode overall this week.
