World Wrestling Federation presents Prime Time Wrestling
From: Various Locations
Matches: (original matches)
1.) Sid Justice defeated Chris Walker
2.) Tito Santana defeated Repo Man by disqualification
1.) Vince McMahon, Gorilla Monsoon, Hillbilly Jim, Bobby Heenan and Mr. Perfect are on the panel this week. They discuss how their Easter went over the weekend. Heenan claims he went rabbit hunting while Jim and Monsoon spent time with their families. They also talk about the Sid vs. Warrior feud with Heenan saying that Sid is going to send Warrior back to parts unknown.
2.) Sid backs Walker into a corner and tries for a strike, but Walker avoids Sid and delivers a few strikes. Sid misses a clothesline, but a second attempt drops Walker to the mat. Sid forearms Walker on the lower back and chokes Walker over the middle rope. Sid kicks Walker in the ribs a few times. Sid slams Walker in the corner and delivers a stomp to the chest a couple of times. Sid signals for a powerbomb and drives Walker to the mat for the easy win. After the match, Sid pushes the stretcher into the apron and Walker falls to the ground. (NR. Well, it looks like any kind of push or focus for Walker isn’t going to be happening in the WWF if he’s losing these kinds of matches on TV. Sid continues to be fantastic in this role.)
3.) Mean Gene hosts Update and focuses on the feud between Ric Flair and Randy Savage regarding the altered photos.
4.) The panel discusses a match between Berzerker and Undertaker taking place next week on the show. Heenan believes Berzerker is the only man to look Taker eye to eye and take Taker down to the mat.
5.) A vignette promoting the mystery inmate looking to get revenge on Big Bossman is shown again.
6.) The Natural Disasters cut a promo saying that leaving Jimmy Hart was the best thing they could have done because now they don’t have any weaknesses.
7.) Skinner cuts a promo saying he’s hungry and he’s going to beat anyone that gets in his way.
8.) The panel talks about Rick Martel and his usage of Arrogance. Martel is upset about losing his match to Tatanka at WrestleMania VIII. Heenan says it doesn’t matter how Martel wins his matches, it’s just getting the victory that matters. Perfect says “he can’t get past the Indian. He smells.”
9.) Back to the panel, Heenan claims he’s on the phone with Lex Luger the future champion of the WBF. Heenan says that Luger is thinking about posing next week on the show.
10.) Repo backs Santana against the ropes, but Santana drops Repo with a shoulder block. Repo regroups in the corner before locking back up with Santana. Repo cheap shots Santana in the corner and wrenches on Santana’s arm in the corner. Repo yanks Santana down to the mat by his hair a few times. Repo keeps wrist control on the mat. Repo knee lifts Santana, but Santana comes back with a hip toss, dropkick and arm drag. Santana keeps Repo on the mat with an arm bar. Santana avoids a leapfrog and jabs Repo followed by an atomic drop. Santana comes off the ropes to hit a crossbody for a two count. Santana keeps arm control, but Repo sends Santana into the ropes and Santana gets a two count with a rollup. Repo sends Santana into the corner chest first. Repo hits a back suplex for a two count. Repo decks Santana with a clothesline and covers for a near fall. Repo punches Santana on the mat followed by a right hand to drop Santana to a knee. Repo slams Santana to the mat and delivers a leg drop for a one count. Repo rams Santana into the corner face first and chokes Santana over the top rope. Repo tries for another cover, but Santana kicks out at one. Repo locks in an arm bar, but doesn’t get a submission and almost pins himself.
Santana bridges up, but Repo eye rakes Santana to regain control of the match. Santana almost wins with a sunset flip, but Repo responds with a clothesline. Repo misses a clothesline and Santana delivers a clothesline of his own. Santana hammers away on Repo several times followed by an elbow to the chin. Santana decks Repo with a clothesline and a dropkick to the top of Repo’s head. Santana comes off the ropes and hits a flying forearm to send Repo rolling to the floor. Santana decks Repo off the apron. Repo grabs his hook from the corner on the floor. Santana follows on the floor and gets hit with the hook. Repo delivers another shot with the metal hook and chokes Santana on the floor. Repo rams Santana shoulder first into the ring post and continues to choke Santana with the rope. Repo continues to beat on Santana despite several officials at ringside. (*1/2. While the match wasn’t all that exciting or good, I enjoyed the post-match beating by Repo Man.)
11.) A vignette promoting a new wrestler named Crush is shown. Crush says he has always liked to crush things since he was little. Just imagine what a man his size can do in the WWF.
12.) Next week on Prime Time Wrestling, The Undertaker squares off against The Berzerker. Tito Santana battles Rick Martel. WWF World Champion Randy Savage defends against IRS! The panel discusses what would happen if IRS won the title next week. Mr. Perfect doesn’t understand why IRS is getting the first title shot. Gorilla chimes in and says there wasn’t a return clause in the contract. Heenan and Perfect bicker over who was suppose to do that to end the show.
This week felt like a filler week of programming for the most part. There were only two matches that were original programming for Prime Time, but I thought they were fine for what they were doing. Next weeks show has several feature matches and is one I’m actually looking forward to.
Thanks for reading.
