World Wrestling Federation presents Superstars
From: Erie, PA
1.) Hakushi defeated Rad Radford & Skip
2.) Henry Godwinn defeated King Kong Bundy
3.) Savio Vega defeated Rick Stockhauser
1.) Skip comes out with his arm in a sling claiming an injury and not being able to compete against Hakushi. Instead, Rad Radford will compete in his place.
2.) Radford attacks Hakushi from behind and chokes him across the middle rope. Skip slaps Hakushi while the referee was out of position. Hakushi backdrops Radford over the top to the floor. Hakushi takes Rad out with a cross body to the floor. Hakushi rolls Rad into the ring and delivers a few strikes to keep control of the match. Sunny is on the apron distracting the referee which allows Skip to pull the top rope down and Hakushi crashes to the floor. Skip hits Hakushi with his injured right arm, which is a fake injury, while the referee is distracted by Radford. Rad rolls Hakushi into the ring and taunts the fans. Radford takes Hakushi over with a butterfly suplex for a two count. Radford misses a clothesline and Hakushi nearly wins with a cross body. Radford runs over Hakushi with a clothesline to regain control and gets a near fall. Radford chokes Hakushi for a few moments and attempts a suplex. Hakushi counters with a back suplex to gain some momentum. Radford dropkicks Hakushi as we go to commercial…
Radford controls Hakushi on the canvas with a sleeper hold but Hakushi gets to his feet and elbows out of the hold. Radford plants Hakushi with a spine buster for a two count. Hakushi fights out with a few strikes and sends Radford into the corner hitting a handspring elbow followed by a leaping forearm shot. Hakushi comes off the top with a missile dropkick for a two count. Hakushi slams Radford and goes to the apron hitting a springboard splash. Skip pulls Hakushi off and hammers away on Hakushi, which the referee sees. The referee wants Skip to enter the match now, but Skip doesn’t want to. Barry Horowitz sends Skip into the ring and Skip tries to prove his injury. Hakushi hits a top rope cross body and pins Skip! (**1/4. I enjoyed the match although the feud is kind of goofy and I don’t have much interest in Barry Horowitz of all people. However, it does prove one thing. If the WWF machine decides to push you, you’ll get over. Horowitz is getting pops from the crowd that I never thought he’d get.)
3.) Godwinn has his bucket of slop and tosses it on DiBiase again! Bundy attacks Godwinn from behind but DiBiase goes backstage embarrassed and livid. Bundy clotheslines Godwinn in the to keep his advantage. Godwinn tries to fight back with strikes but isn’t able to. Bundy knocks Henry down with an elbow shot. Bundy misses a clothesline and Godwinn decks Bundy with a clothesline of his own. Godwinn comes off the ropes but misses an elbow drop. Bundy stands on Henry’s chest as the show goes to commercial…
Bundy hits a knee drop and keeps Godwinn on the canvas with a sleeper hold. Godwinn gets stopped by an elbow shot from Bundy. Bundy misses a splash in the corner and Godwinn barely hits a scoop slam to get the win. (*. I’m just glad it was kept short.) After the match, Kama and Tatanka make their way to the ring and Godwinn gets triple teamed on the floor. DiBiase gets a few shots in for some revenge. Bam-Bam Bigelow runs down and is able to cause four men to back off.
4.) Next week, Psycho Sid battles Savio Vega. Plus, Isaac Yankeem meets Savio Vega in singles action.
5.) Hunter Hearst Helmsley was coming out to compete in a singles match but upon smelling the slop that was Henry Godwinn’s, Helmsley decides against competing due to the smell.
The segment between Hakushi/Skip was pretty entertaining. Aside from that, it’s a lackluster show. I appreciate the mid card storylines on Superstars, they just aren’t overly appealing.
