1.Harlem Heat opened up the action this week on Saturday Night. Booker T got the pin after hitting the Heat Seeker.
2.We see two videos that promote the Harlem Heat/Nasty Boys and Anderson/Badd matches at Uncensored tomorrow night.
3.Speaking of the WCW TV Champion, Arn Anderson had a squash match this week. Anderson quickly won the match following the DDT. After the match, Anderson talks to Mean Gene. Col. Robert Parker compares Anderson’s match with Badd to the match between Ali and Inoki a few years ago. Anderson calls Badd a coward for attacking him last week. Anderson says that Badd isn’t the man he thinks he is. Anderson says Badd has stepped into his house and he is going hurt him real bad.
4.Brian Pillman is back in singles action and won his squash match following a top rope big splash.
5.It’s time for the debut of Sgt. Craig Pittman on Saturday Night. He is a heel drill sergeant. Pittman won the squash with a cross arm breaker. He is one crazy man.
6.Regal takes Eaton down early on and taunts the fans. Eaton is apparently trying to convince Regal they should be partners, at least that’s what the announcers are indicating. Regal continues to work on Eaton with uppercuts. Eaton fights back with a backdrop and clothesline followed by a swinging neck breaker! Eaton looks for the top rope leg drop but Regal bails to the floor and wants to talk to Mean Gene on the floor. Mean Gene comes over and talks to Regal. Regal is now saying that Eaton would be a great tag team partner. Regal thinks they could do wonderful things together. They shake hands and walk off.
7.Vader won his squash match with a power bomb. After the match, Dave Sullivan comes down to ringside and is punched by Flair. Flair rolls Sullivan into the ring and Vader connects with a power bomb! Vader jumps off the middle rope to splash Sullivan. Vader decides to come off the top rope to big splash Sullivan another time! Ric Flair hammers away on Sullivan until Bobby Heenan enters the ring and pulls him off. Nick Bockwinkel is in the ring as well to prevent anything else from happening to Dave.
8.Alex Wright won his squash match following a middle rope twisting cross body.
9.A video promoting the Blacktop Bully/Dustin Rhodes feud is aired.
10.Blacktop Bully had a squash match this week, which he won with the Breaker 1-9.
11.Considering Avalanche is the size of two men, I don’t think he is at a disadvantage in this handicap match. He proves that to be true as he takes are of business. Avalanche hits a double sit down splash on both men to win the match. After the match, Mean Gene interviews Avalanche and Big Bubba. Bubba knows that they are going to beat Savage and Sting in singles matches tomorrow night at Uncensored. Avalanche brags about laying Savage out a couple of weeks ago.
12.Meng won his squash match with a savant kick in record time yet again.
13.A video promoting the Hogan/Vader match tomorrow night is aired.
14.Yeah, I thought Paul Roma was fired after Superbrawl V as well, at least that’s what I always read. But, he is here in the main event. Orndorff works on Rhodes with a knee lift and several shots to the midsection. Rhodes fights back to hit a running bulldog, which would be a finisher but they treat it as just another move, really. Badd enters and dropkicks Roma a few times to keep control of the contest. Badd is worked on by both Orndorff and Roma, with the main focus being Badd’s left arm. Badd connects with a snap suplex on Roma and tags in Rhodes who works on Orndorff with right hands and a clothesline. Orndorff avoids a dropkick and drives Rhodes head first into the canvas. Roma delivers a few back breakers for a near fall on Rhodes. Rhodes counters a pile driver attempt with a backdrop on Orndorff and they both go down following a double clothesline. Badd gets the tag and hammers away on Roma. All four men enter the ring and begin to brawl in the ring. Badd leaps off the top and pins Roma with a sunset flip while Roma was trying to deliver a pile driver. I thought it was a decent match, nothing special.
15.Nick Bockwinkel tells Ric Flair that he retired and not in the picture anymore. Flair threatens to unleash Vader on Bockwinkel. Instead, Flair says he doesn’t want to comeback to WCW. Flair says tomorrow night no authorities will be at Uncensored and he will go nuts with Vader.
This was really just a last second promotion for the Uncensored pay per view. So, it wasn’t too bad. There wasn’t anything new going on, just a recap of what happened in past weeks.
Thanks for reading.
