Angle Developments/Notes:
1.We are only twenty four hours away from third annual Slamboree. The program starts off with Johnny B. Badd competing in singles action. Badd wins the squash match following a top rope hurricanrana. That goes by the name of Badd Day.

2.Tomorrow night, Meng will be in action against Brian Pillman in a United States Tournament match. But, first he was to get past the ever tough Eddie Jackie. Okay, that was me just being sarcastic. Meng won the contest after two savant kicks. After the match, Tony Schiavone talks to Col. Robert Parker. Parker talks about how they are going to find out how smart Brian Pillman really is tomorrow night. They will be competing on the pre-show telecast for the pay per view. Parker requests that Meng wreck Pillman up good, and he is confident that Meng will do just that for him.

3.Kevin Sullivan roughed up Barry Houston this week. Houston actually got some offense in, even hitting a dropkick to knock Sullivan down. However, that would be the only positive for him in this match. Sullivan won the match following a double stomp.

4.A video of the newly rich Diamond Dallas Page golfing with Diamond Doll is aired. Doll says that her real name is Kimberly. DDP enters and says he has no time to talk to Eric Bischoff. I’m not sure if this was supposed to be funny, but it wasn’t.

5.We hear comments from Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage regarding their match at Slamboree. Hogan says that everyone is shaking in their boots, and says that they have Flair’s number. Savage believes they are going to be an explosion heard around the world. Renegade appears in the background, thanks to a green screen, and will be the guy to hold Arn Anderson in check.

6.The names of the jobbers in the next match were not disclosed. Harlem Heat wins the match following a power bomb/middle rope forearm drop.

7.Sting opened the match with a few shoulder blocks for a near fall. Naturally, Orndorff argues about what happened to him and believes it wasn’t fair. There is just a lot of stalling between these two wrestlers. I’m going to consider this a match where they just mailed it in. Orndorff gets out of a side headlock with a back suplex. Orndorff misses a top rope forearm smash and Sting gets control of the match with a dropkick. Sting is dropped throat first across the top rope. They end up going to the floor but they don’t do anything. What was the point of that? Sting blocks the pile driver with a backdrop and locks in the Scorpion Death Lock to win the match. That was really, really boring. There was nothing during that match that would make it even remotely close to being entertaining or fun. What a complete waste of a main event. After the match, Tony Schiavone interviews Sting. He talks about his match with Big Bubba tomorrow night. Sting says that Big Bubba will find out what he is all about!

Final Thoughts:
This was a bad episode of Saturday Night. I understand that the pay per view is tomorrow night, but there was nothing here that got me excited for the pay per view. The matches, especially the main event, were just awful. This one gets a big thumbs down from me.

Thanks for reading.
