World Wrestling Federation presents Superstars
1.) Men on a Mission defeated Buck Quartermaine & Bill Payne
2.) 1-2-3 Kid defeated Mike Khoury
3.) Mantaur defeated Rich Myers
4.) Aldo Montoya defeated WWF Intercontinental Champion Jeff Jarrett in a non-title match
5.) Jean Pierre Lafitte defeated Scott Taylor
1. Men on a Mission have fully embraced their heel personas. Oscar is no longer part of the group as he was against the heel attitude.
2. There was a brief confrontation between Aldo Montoya and Jeff Jarrett backstage where Aldo was saying he was ready to beat Jarrett and get a title shot in the future. Jarrett and Roadie came over and shoved Montoya until officials came over to break up the scuffle.
3. Montoya tosses Jarrett into the ring and nearly wins with a quick cross body but only manages a near fall. Double J can’t get any momentum going on in the early moments of the contest. Montoya is sent to the floor where Roadie takes him out with a clothesline. Back in the ring, Jarrett comes off the middle rope to hit a clothesline. Jarrett delivers a kick to the head of Aldo and taunts the fans. After a commercial, Aldo is going to work on the champ but can’t get a pin. Aldo hits a missile dropkick after Jarrett missed a splash in the corner. Jarrett hits a back suplex and both guys have their shoulders down. Aldo pops his up before three and wins the match. (*. So, more or less Jarrett loses the match rather than Aldo winning it. This was the best finish to protect Jarrett and give the show a storyline for TV. This means Aldo gets a title shot probably in a week or two and that will be the end of that.)
4. This is Jean Pierre’s debut with the pirate. He was previously Quebecer Pierre last year. Lafitte’s finishing move is a swanton bomb.
5. Jeff Jarrett asks Vince McMahon if he is crazy to give Aldo Montoya a WWF Intercontinental Championship match. Jarrett refuses to close the show.
I’m really digging the Jean Pierre Lafitte singles debut. He had some really interesting and unique moves in his first match. The Jarrett/Aldo match was basic and just a way to extend their TV feud for a week. There doesn’t really seem to be a midcard guy other than Razor for Jarrett to realistically feud with over the IC strap at this point. An average, if not boring episode of Superstars this week.
