Written by: Bob Colling

World Championship Wrestling presents Saturday Night
From: Atlanta, GA

1.) Johnny B. Badd defeated Richard Morton
2.) WCW World Tag Team Champions Steiner Brothers defeated Bob Cook & John Peterson
3.) Cactus Jack defeated Scott Allen
4.) Greg Valentine defeated Tom Zenk

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) As was the case last week, the show this week is an hour long instead of the usual two hour format.

2.) Dusty Rhodes is the co-host this week with Jim Ross and he is fired up to be on the program that’s for sure.

3.) WCW World Tag Team Champions the Steiner Brothers are interviewed by Dusty Rhodes. Scott says they have trained their entire life to be the best tag team in professional wrestling. Rick chimes in and says that they aren’t afraid of Steve Williams and Terry Gordy.

4.) During the WCW Magazine segment there was footage of Nikita Koloff being offered a spot in the Dangerous Alliance by Madusa. He declined the offer and said he wanted no part of the group or Madusa. He did make it clear that he wants the WCW United States Championship that Rick Rude currently holds.

5.) Footage from WCW Worldwide is shown from last week. WCW Television Champion Barry Windham defended against Steve Austin on the program. Austin got the championship while Dangerously provided the distraction and Austin managed to hit Windham with the belt while the referee was out of position and pinned Windham to regain the championship.

6.) Arn Anderson is interviewed by Dusty Rhodes. Anderson maintains that the WCW World Championship held by Sting is his focus. Anderson tells Dusty that he can’t get in his head today. Anderson can’t outshine Sting but he can give the fans nothing to scream about. Anderson says on the mat Sting is just like him.

7.) Zenk hits a middle rope cross body for a near fall on Valentine in the opening minute of the match. Zenk kicks Valentine away and takes Greg down with an arm drag. Valentine misses a shoulder ram in the corner and hits the ring post. Zenk focuses his attack on the left arm to weaken Valentine on the canvas. Valentine clotheslines Zenk and delivers an elbow strike to keep Zenk on the canvas. Valentine continues to work over Zenk and hits a double under hook slam for a near fall. Valentine attempts a suplex but Zenk counters and takes Valentine over with a vertical suplex for a near fall. Zenko misses a shoulder strike in the corner and hits the turnbuckle shoulder first. Valentine drives Zenk down with a shoulder breaker for a two count.

Valentine tries to avoid a backslide but Zenk gets him over for a two count. Valentine drives Zenk down with a back breaker and comes off the middle rope but misses an elbow drop. Zenk hammers away on Valentine and hits a backdrop. Valentine sends Zenk to the floor where Zenk is now holding his knee. Valentine locks in the figure four but Zenk refuses to give in. Valentine uses the ropes for leverage but the referee sees it. Zenk counters the figure four with a rollup for a near fall. Valentine nails Zenk with a forearm strike over the head and pins Zenk. (*1/2. Well, that was as boring as I was expecting it to be. I’m not sure why Greg Valentine is getting a push in ’92.)

Final Thoughts:
There was nothing happening here and felt like a pre-show filler before a pay per view.

Thanks for reading.
