WCW Saturday Night 4/25/1998

Written by: Bob Colling

World Championship Wrestling presents Saturday Night
Date:
4/25/1998
From: Madison, WI

Matches:
1.) Glacier defeated Lenny Lane
2.) The Barbarian defeated Super Calo
3.) Rick Steiner defeated Scott Norton

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Mean Gene interviews Rick Steiner and Ted DiBiase. Ted says that the betrayal of Scott Steiner is on Rick’s mind but he isn’t going to advise Rick on how to handle that. Rick says he brought Scott into the company in 1990 and thought he could rely on him. Rick is the older brother and is going to teach Scott a lesson.

2.) Steiner takes Norton over with a power slam and hits a quick elbow drop followed by a back suplex. Steiner clotheslines Norton over the top to the floor. Steiner works over Norton in the corner with right hands until Norton drops Rick face first across the top turnbuckle. Norton sends Steiner to the floor sending him into the ring post shoulder first. Norton hits a short arm clothesline before coming off the apron to strike Steiner with an axe handle. Norton controls Steiner in the ring with chops and gouges the eyes of Steiner. Steiner bites the leg of Norton while Norton was distracted by the referee. Norton drops Steiner with a clothesline for a near fall. Norton works over Steiner in the corner with a series of head butts. Steiner goes back to biting Norton’s leg. Norton knocks Steiner to the floor. Norton goes for a scoop slam but the referee gets knocked down. Steiner decks Norton with a few clotheslines but here comes Vincent. Norton attacks Steiner from behind and holds Steiner but Vincent hits Norton with the dog collar on accident. Steiner puts Norton away with the top rope bulldog for the win. (*1/4. Well, that was as good as it we were going to get. At least there was a pin fall and not some kind cheap finish.)

Final Thoughts:
A quick and harmless episode of WCW Saturday Night this week as the main focus was Rick Steiner getting revenge on the NWO as he moves towards Scott Steiner. There’s no reason to seek this out as I’m reviewing it mainly just for completion sake.

Thanks for reading.
