From: St. Petersburg, FL

1.) Road Warriors defeated Bunkhouse Buck & Dick Slater
2.) Hugh Morrus defeated Chris Kanyon
3.) VK Wallstreet & Big Bubba defeated Sgt. Craig Pittman & Joey Maggs
4.) Jim Duggan fought Loch Ness to a double disqualification

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) This episode of Main Event was aired live before the Superbrawl VI PPV.

2.) Animal and Buck kickoff the tag match with Buck delivering a few strikes. Animal ducks a clothesline and shoulder blocks Buck to the mat. Animal scoop slams Buck and delivers an elbow strike. Hawk tags in and works over Buck with strikes in the corner. Hawk misses a spear and hits the post shoulder first. Slater enters the match stomping on Hawk followed by right hands. Animal gets involved to help Hawk. Harlem Heat share a pre-tape promo saying that they will be the new tag champs tonight. Slater dumps Heat to the floor. Slater elbows Hawk. Buck holds Animal for Col. Parker, but Parker accidentally huts Buck. Animal lifts Buck up and Hawk hits a top rope clothesline for the win. (*. The fans sure do like the Road Warriors. This was just an extended squash for the Warriors.)

3.) Backstage, Mean Gene interviews WCW World Champion Randy Savage and Elizabeth. Savage promotes the cage match with Ric Flair. Savage is going to take care of his half and Hogan will take care of his half. Elizabeth is looking very nervous. Savage is defending the belt and everything he’s ever wanted to be.

4.) Backstage, Mean Gene interviews the Giant and Jimmy Hart. Hart says that when he was managing Hulk Hogan, Hogan was the champion but he’s not anymore. Giant chimes in and says that tonight is the night for nightmares. Giant is going to shred Hogan apart tonight. Giant says that Hogan can’t run from him now. Giant promises that Hogan will never be the same again after tonight.

5.) Wallstreet and Maggs start the tag match with Wallstreet slamming Maggs to the mat. Maggs has a headlock on Wallstreet and hits a dropkick for a two count. Wallstreet eye rakes Maggs and tags in Bubba. Bubba punches Maggs into the ropes where Pittman tags into the match. Pittman runs the ropes and is met with a clothesline by Bubba. Bubba and Pittman collide coming off the ropes. Pittman headbutts Bubba in the midsection and Maggs enters to deliver right hands. Bubba misses a splash in the corner. Maggs kicks Bubba followed by a dropkick. Maggs drops Bubba with a kick to the head for a two count. Bubba plants Maggs with a side slam for the win. After the match, Bubba and Wallstreet continue to beatdown Pittman and Maggs. That is until Jim Duggan runs down to the ring with a 2×4 to make the save. Duggan hits Wallstreet and stands tall with Pittman. (1/2*. A quick enhancement match for VK and Bubba. Maggs had a little bit of shine, but it was just a matter of time. I’m taking the aftermath as a formation for Duggan/Pittman as a team.)

6.) Backstage, Mean Gene interviews Ric Flair and Woman. Woman tells Gene that Flair gets whatever he wants. Flair is going to try and be subdue, but he’s freaking out already. Flair says one guy will walk out the cage and the other will be on a stretcher. Flair recalls winning the title at Starrcade and getting stitches. Flair promises one of them will bleed, one will walk and one will be stretchered out. Flair wants Savage to bring Elizabeth and she can ride Space Mountain. That was a good promo by Flair.

7.) Jim Duggan has a surprise opponent for the show. Jimmy Hart and Kevin Sullivan come down. They spoil it during the entrance as the name plate Loch Ness appears on screen. Duggan beats on Sullivan with right hands. Loch Ness ends up walking down. Ness beats on Duggan and of course this has been thrown out. Ness elbow drops Duggan. Sgt. Craig Pittman runs into the ring to help Duggan, but he’s knocked down. The locker room starts to come out and Loch Ness takes them out with elbow drops.

8.) Backstage, Mean Gene interviews Hulk Hogan regarding the cage match with Giant. Hogan can see Giant running for cover despite his one bad eye. Hogan says that everyone told him to watch his back in the cage match. Hogan says people will only remember if you’re a winner or loser. Hogan wants to know who Gene is betting on, but Gene says he had to quit gambling years ago. Hogan was reading to his kids and the book said an eye for eye and a tooth for a tooth. Hogan isn’t a toy and he still rules the wrestling world and everyone will realize that tonight.

Final Thoughts:
The matches were not good, but the promos were strong and I’d say Superbrawl is a show that I would invest my money in.

Thanks for reading.
