World Wrestling Federation presents Superstars
From: Baltimore, MD

1.)The Rockers defeated Gene Ligon & George South
2.)Ted DiBiase defeated Scott Hudson
3.)Tito Santana defeated Steve Lombardi
4.)The Red Rooster defeated Rusty Riddle
5.)The Hart Foundation defeated Larry Stevens & Johnny Zeigler
6.)Brutus Beefcake defeated the Honkytonk Man by disqualification

Angle Developments/Notes:
1. Hercules cut a pre-tape promo during DiBiase’s match. Hercules is going to keep his freedom and he will never give up. He is going to prove that at Survivor Series!

2. This week, WWF World Champion Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth are the guests on the Brother Love Show. Love thinks that Savage has bitten off more than he can chew at Survivor Series. Love begins to put over the heel team saying that DiBiase is going to take care of Hercules at Survivor Series. Love says that Hogan will learn a lesson in control as well thanks to the Big Bossman. Savage is also going to have to deal with Akeem and Elizabeth won’t be able to save him. The champ takes the microphone and tells Love that he doesn’t want him to do anything else but listen. Savage wants Love to listen as he introduces Hulk Hogan to a big ovation. Love runs off the set. They shake hands and play to the crowd. Hogan says the Survivor Series is different than any kind of match. Hogan talks about Bossman beating the crap out of him and tells Savage he has the perfect co-captain for the match. Hogan says the Mega Powers will run over them at Survivor Series!

3. Honky works over Beefcake with a knee lift and a few right hands but Brutus comes back with a high knee lift. Beefcake hammers away on Honky in the corner. Honky misses a kick and hits the canvas. Honky sends Brutus into the corner and tries for a double axe handle but Beefcake nails him in midair. Brutus locks in the sleeper hold but here comes Ron Bass to cause the disqualification. That causes all the members involved in the Survivor Series match captained by Honky and Brutus to come out for a big brawl to close the show!

Final Thoughts:
It could have been a much worse show for a go home show, but I thought it did a fine job of creating some excitement for the pay per view.

Thanks for reading.
