World Wrestling Federation presents Superstars
From: Providence, RI
1.) Paul Orndorff defeated Sivi Afi
2.) Sika defeated Don Driggers
3.) The Islanders defeated the Moondogs
4.) WWF Intercontinental Champion Randy Savage defeated Troy Martin
5.) Super Machine, Big Machine & Giant Machine defeated Rick Hunter, JJ Jackson, & Al Navarro
6.) WWF Tag Team Champions Davey Boy Smith & Dynamite Kid defeated Les Thornton & Jack Foley
1.) Paul Orndorff came to the ring with Bobby Heenan using WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan’s theme music, his former friend. Orndorff taunted Hogan before the match. Orndorff shared some pre-tape comments laughing at people asking if he regretted turning on Hogan. He’s the reason Hogan is WWF World Champion. The next time they meet, Orndorff is going to make sure Hogan can’t get up.
2.) WWF Update hosted by Mean Gene is up next. “Handsome” Harley Race has gotten Bobby Heenan to be his manager after he recently became the King of the Ring. He’s going by King Harley Race and is wearing a crown. The ring was filled with heels and praised Race. Race has his eyes on the WWF World Championship.
3.) This is Sika’s return to the WWF and wasted no time destroying his opponent.
4.) Honkytonk Man shared some comments saying that he saw what Paul Orndorff did to his best friend Hulk Hogan. The incident made him really upset and promises that Orndorff will never do that to Hogan or anybody else. He can’t stand it.
5.) Troy Martin is Shane Douglas using his real name. He lasted two minutes before getting pinned by Randy Savage following an elbow drop. Pedro Morales shared some comments during the match saying he can’t believe how Savage treats Elizabeth. He’s going to battle Savage soon it looks like.
6.) Roddy Piper hosting the Piper’s Pit is up next. He talks about getting rid of the Flower Shop setup, which included flowers and makeup. Adrian Adonis comes out with Jimmy Hart and Bob Orton Jr. to tell Piper he is a traitor and old news. Adonis believes he is the current future while Piper is just old. Adonis issues a challenge to Piper. In two weeks they are going to have a debate about what the fans want… the Flower Shop or Piper’s Pit. Piper wants to do it today and tricks Adonis into sitting but he misses the chair and falls down. Piper casually walks away.
7.) Lou Albano shared some comments during the Machines match. He says that the Machine could mean several more than three. He’s teasing that more could be coming for Heenan.
8.) Jack Foley would be better known as Mick Foley. Jimmy Hart shared some comments during the match saying that the Funk Brothers are going to put a leash around the Bulldogs and will do anything to win the tag titles.
Glad that we saw Paul Orndorff in action since he is the top heel at the time going after Hogan. The issues between Adonis and Piper are the best thing going on Superstars. Those segments are entertaining me. I will say that Honkytonk Man as a good guy just feels weird.
