From: Corpus Christi, TX
1.) Tatanka defeated Gary Sabaugh
2.) The Heavenly Bodies defeated Raven Clark & Buck Quartermaine
3.) Shawn Michaels defeated Adam Bomb
4.) Man Mountain Rock defeated Bill Payne
5.) The New Headshrinkers defeated Well Dunn
6.) Bob Backlund defeated Lee Tobin

1. Bomb doesn’t allow Michaels to finish is posing and attacks with right hands. Bomb proceeds to kick Shawn off the top rope and sends the number one contender to the floor! Michaels pokes Bomb in the eyes and comes off the top to hit a double axe handle. Shawn hammers away on Adam to maintain control but misses a splash in the corner. Bomb hits a backdrop but is sent to the floor. Shawn takes Bomb out with a slingshot cross body on the floor. Michaels hits the top rope elbow drop but Adam kicks out at two. Bomb fires up with clotheslines sending Shawn over the top to the floor. Michaels avoids a slingshot shoulder block and pins Bomb following the super kick. (*. The finish made Bomb look like a fool as Michaels ducked down before Bomb even left his feet for the slingshot. Another boring feature match on Superstars.)
2. Stan Lane conducted an interview with Shinja and Hakushi. Lane notes that Hakushi has made an impact in the WWF since arriving to the promotion. Shinja calls Lane stupid for asking if he speaks English. Lane asks about the tattoos that Hakushi has. Shinja says that the tattoos mean what everything Hakushi believes in. Hakushi means White Angel and says that Hakuhi is the most respected star in Japan. Shinja claims that Hakushi is better than Diesel and Bret Hart. Shinja is adamant that Hakushi is number one in Japan and no one knows Bret Hart there! This interview is setting up a Hart/Hakushi feud and I can’t wait for that.
3. The New Headshrinkers won their match against Well Dunn, and thus they earn a tag title match against the Smoking Gunns next week. The match lasted under two minutes.
The only positive from this show is Hakushi being in the WWF. He made his debut in late ’94 but possibly having a feud with Bret Hart is going to be a memorable one for the WWF in ’95. Anyway, Superstars continues to be rather boring.
