World Championship Wrestling presents Saturday Night
From: Atlanta, GA
1.)Stars & Stripes defeated Barry Hardy & Chris Speaker
2.)The Nasty Boys defeated Todd Zane & Chuck Donovan
3.)Sgt. Craig Pittman defeated Scott Armstrong
4.)Blue Bloods defeated Mark Starr & Kip Abee
5.)Alex Wright defeated Big Bubba by disqualification in a WCW United States Title Tournament Match
1.Stars & Stripes competed in tag team action to kick off the show. They won the squash after a vertical suplex/top rope cross body by Bagewll.
2.Tony Schiavone introduces Sting for an interview. Sting will wrestle Paul Orndorff next week in the WCW United States Title Tournament. Sting says that Big Bubba should watch out for Alex Wright tonight because he is a good, young wrestler. He says he is a magician and that’s how he is going to deal with Orndorff and Bubba.
3.We hear comments from Ric Flair, Vader and Arn Anderson. Vader says that Hogan has put his foot in his own mouth this time around. He says that we are looking at the Big Three. Anderson thinks that Hogan has brainwashed The Renegade because he is young. They keep on whispering making it tough to hear them. Flair mocks Savage and Hogan before saying that it’s their last fight at Slamboree.
4.The Nasty Boys get some fine tuning in before their pay per view match next week. They won their squash match after hitting a top rope elbow drop.
5.Sgt. Craig Pittman made Scott Armstrong submit to his Code Red to win the squash match.
6.The Blue Bloods continue to be undefeated since forming their tag team. Eaton hit a top rope leg drop and Regal got the submission victory when he locked in the STF on Abee.
7.A rather humorous video of Angelo talking to Randy about the match at Slamboree is aired. It clearly wasn’t supposed to be humorous but the music they chose to air with it was rather dumb.
8.Bubba backs Wright into a corner early but is slapped by Wright. Wright dropkicks Bubba chest first into the corner and nearly wins with a roll up. Bubba casually shoulder blocks Wright and slaps him before missing a sit down splash. Wright monkey flips Bubba out of the corner. Bubba catches Wright as he runs the ropes and plants Wright with a spine buster! Bubba takes his time on the corner but only gets a two count. Bubba drops Wright with an uppercut but only gets a two count on the cover attempt. Wright gets out of an abdominal stretch with a hip toss but Bubba maintains control with a right hand. Bubba leaps off the top rope but misses a splash. Wright nearly wins with a sunset flip. Wright drops Bubba with a standing spin kick and goes to the top rope where he hits a missile dropkick but Bubba kicks out at two! Bubba catches Wright on a cross body attempt and tosses Wright over the top to the floor causing the DQ. After the match, Bubba looks to attack Wright some more. Sting runs out and slams Bubba off the top rope! Sting knocks Bubba to the floor to save Wright.
Yet another lackluster episode of Saturday Night. I really hope this isn’t the point where Saturday Night becomes a burden to watch. I believe once Nitro started it was a tough watch, but that’s still four months away. This episode gets a thumbs down from me, folks. Next week, Ric Flair will be in action against the Patriot.
Thanks for reading.
