5.) Mean Gene recently had a sit down interview with Randy Savage at Randy’s home. Gene brings up the pictures that Flair revealed recently. Savage is clearly getting upset and annoyed by Gene’s questioning. Savage asks Gene what he’s thinking. Savage says that all of it is untrue. Savage looks into the camera and yells “untrue” to end the segment.
6.) The Natural Disasters share pre-tape comments during Money Inc.’s match. The Disasters proclaim they are going to win the tag titles at WrestleMania. It’s time for them to collect on their payback.
7.) Tito Santana shared pre-tape comments during Shawn Michaels match. Santana tells Michaels to enjoy his relationship with Sherri for the time being, because at WrestleMania VIII it comes to an end. After the victory, Michaels and Sherri left the building. The ring announcer makes sure to announce that to the fans, too.
8.) Mean Gene is on the podium for an interview with WWF Intercontinental Champion Roddy Piper and Bret Hart. Hart has a sign from a fan where they asked if Hart and Piper are friends. Piper didn’t come here to talk about fighting. Piper and Hart sit on the podium and Piper recalls knowing Hart says Hart was a baby. Piper says he’s going to backoff and he’s not going to be at WrestleMania. Piper talks about Bret’s mother making them sandwiches and loves Bret’s mother. Piper can’t find it in his heart to wrestle Bret and he’s not going to wrestle Bret. Bret tells Piper that if Piper doesn’t wrestle then the title is forfeited and he’s the champion now. Piper tells Hart that he’s not going to be shaking hands and being real nice at WrestleMania. Piper tells Hart to shake his hand because he’ll do everything he can to destroy Bret on April 5th. Bret shakes Piper’s hand and says he’ll see Piper on April 5th. Piper teases hitting Hart with the WWF Intercontinental Championship, but Hart senses it. Piper warns Hart that he would have had him and tells Bret that he’s playing for keeps at WrestleMania.
9.) Rick Martel shares pre-tape comments during Tatanka’s match. Martel tells Tatanka he will remember wounded knee and broken back when he’s done with him.
While there wasn’t a feature match the show was strong with a lot of insert comments to build up some of the lesser important angles for WrestleMania. I thought the Piper/Hart segment was excellent, too.
Thanks for reading.
