3.) Alex Wright defeated Chris Nelson
4.) WCW United States Champion Vader defeated Chad Austin
5.) Johnny B. Badd defeated Doug Allen
6.) Jim Duggan defeated Bobby Eaton

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Diamond Dallas Page cut a promo before the arm wrestling challenge. Page demands some respect and talks about beating everyone over the past six weeks. Page believes he deserves respect. If anyone wins the arm wrestling challenge they get a date with Diamond Doll. Morgan claims to be an arm wrestling champion. Dave Sullivan has come down during the challenge, but he’s staying by the fans. Morgan had the advantage for a moment before losing to Page.

2.) Duggan gets the crowd behind him to start the contest against Eaton. Duggan backs Eaton into a corner, but cleanly backs away. Eaton tries to toss Duggan out of the corner, but Duggan counters with a hip toss. Duggan works over Eaton’s arm with a wrist lock on the mat. Duggan stomps on Eaton’s back. Eaton tries to deliver strikes, but Duggan no sells it. Eaton comes off the ropes and is slammed by Duggan. Duggan scares Eaton to the floor after attempting several jabs. Eaton returns to the ring and gets control with strikes. Duggan backdrops Eaton coming out of the corner followed by a clothesline. Eaton drops Duggan over the top rope sending Duggan backwards to the canvas. Eaton continues to choke Duggan along with an eye rake. Duggan battles out fo a sleeper, but Eaton drops down to the mat to keep control. Eaton knee lifts Duggan coming off the ropes and delivers a knee drop. Eaton heads to the top rope hitting a knee drop for a two count as Duggan got his leg on the ropes. Eaton continues to use the ropes for leverage on a sleeper. Duggan manages to fight to his feet, but Eaton goes back to the sleeper. Duggan fights out with right hands from his back. Eaton heads to the top rope and is met with a right hand in midair. Duggan backdrops Eaton but misses a splash in the corner. Eaton misses a splash of his own. Duggan waits in the corner to deliver a running clothesline for the win. (1/2*. They decided to work an extended sleeper hold and that just killed the match for me completely.)

Final Thoughts:
A lackluster episode of Pro this week as the featured match wasn’t very good at all.

Thanks for reading.
