WWF Superstars 7/16/1988

Written by: Bob Colling

World Wrestling Federation presents Superstars
From: Glenns Falls, NY

1.)Powers of Pain defeated Tony Ulysses & Iron Mike Sharpe
2.)Dino Bravo defeated Tony Parks
3.)Rougeau Brothers defeated Chris Duffy & Scott Colotonio
4.)Jake Roberts defeated Bob Emery
5.)Ted DiBiase defeated Larry Stevens
6.)Bad News Brown defeated Carmine Surace
7.)The Rockers defeated Steve Lombardi & Terry Gibbs

Angle Developments/Notes:
1. This is the debut of the Powers of Pain. They are a babyface tag team consisting of the Barbarian and the Warlord. They are huge men with face paint. Mr. Fuji appeared during the match and watched while standing in the aisle way. He was also taking pictures of the men. Slick is also watching the match. They won after a diving headbutt off the top by Barbarian.

2. The Killer Bees cut a promo during the Rougeau match. They don’t like how the Rougeau are trying to pretend they are Americans. They are out for revenge and hope the Rougeau’s aren’t allergic to bees because they will break out into hives.

3. Craig DeGeorge conducted an interview with Don Muraco. Superstar Billy Graham is not with Muraco this week. Graham is no longer allowed to be at ringside due to Greg Valentine attacking him. Muraco says that Graham would do whatever he could to be by Muraco’s side if he could be. Don says that Graham will be traveling with him despite not actually being with him. Don is confident that Graham will walk again

4. A vignette aired promoting the debut of the Big Bossman was aired again. Bossman says he is the only judge, jury and if need be the executioner.

Final Thoughts:
Nothing of note taking place on the show aside from a debut and the soon to be debuting Bossman. So, as a result I thought it was a lackluster edition of Superstars.

Thanks for reading.
