1. Brother Love’s guest this week is none other than former WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan! Love mentions that ever since Hogan lost his title that Hogan has lost control. Hogan doesn’t look so happy. Love has gotten some protection from someone. That brings out the Big Bossman and Slick to protect Brother Love. Slick says Bossman is out there to make sure Hogan doesn’t touch him. Slick gets in Hogan’s face, but Hulk takes his hat off and tells Slick to get under control himself. Hogan says Brother Love is going to have to get a bunch of money to protect him. Slick appears to have some spray behind his back. Bossman hits Hogan in the throat with his stick and Slick sprays Hogan in the eyes! Hogan is blinded as Bossman viciously beats hogan with his stick! Bossman handcuffs Hogan to a guard railing! Bossman continues to beat down Hogan. Hogan reaches up and begins to choke Bossman. Hogan knee lifts Bossman and tries to him them with the guard railing. Hogan picks up the railing and chases them to the back to end the segment!
2. Bobby Heenan is in the ring and says that his family was going to grow. This week, he introduces two of the newest members for his family. They are Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard! They will be known as the Brainbusters. This is their television debut. A pre-tape promo by the new team. They are the best and are the cement of a dynasty.
3. Mr. Perfect vignette sees him playing golf this week. Perfect shows off his skill by hitting a 40ft putt.
A strong show that surely promoted Bossman into a top angle moving into ’89. That was a great attack, but I wish he had left Hogan laying instead of the Hulkster chasing him off. Plus, Arn and Tully are in the WWF! Can the tag division get any stronger? My goodness. Should be a good time in the WWF to close out ’88.
