2.)Meng defeated Ken Brewer
3.)WCW Television Champion Arn Anderson defeated Eddie Jackie
4.)WCW World Tag Team Champions Harlem Heat defeated Barry Houston & Frankie Lancaster
5.)Randy Savage defeated the Butcher in the WCW United States Title Tournament
1.The actions starts off with Sting competing in singles action. Bobby Heenan predicts that Sting will win the WCW United States Championship tournament. He is never wrong. Sting makes Cubano submit to the Scorpion Death Lock to win the squash.
2.Heenan now picks Meng to win the WCW United States Championship. He’ll get it right no matter what. Meng wins the squash match after a savant kick. After the match, Tony Schiavone talks to Col. Robert Parker. Parker says he isn’t worried about who wins their matches because Meng is going to win the WCW United States Championship. Meng will be wrestling Brian Pillman next in the tournament. Parker is going to change Pillman’s name to being a beaten up young boy.
3.Arn Anderson took care of business this week and won his squash match after hitting a DDT.
4.A video of Diamond Dallas Page looking to buy a new care since winning millions of dollars is aired. He makes it clear that it’s easy spending money.
5.Harlem Heat prevailed this week when Booker pinned Houston after hitting a top rope forearm smash and Ray slammed him down to the canvas. After the match, Harlem Heat is interviewed. They assure the Nasty Boys that at Slamboree it will be their last shot at the titles. Stevie Ray says that the Nasty Boys just don’t got it and they will not lose the straps.
6.A video promoting Ric Flair and his recent alliance with Vader and Arn Anderson is shown. They are looking to end Hulk Hogan once and for all.
7.Butcher attacks Savage before the bell and chokes him across the top rope. Butcher locks in a sleeper hold but isn’t able to put Savage to sleep. Savage breaks free with a jaw breaker. Savage sends Butcher to the floor and hits a top rope double ax handle onto Butcher. Savage slams Butcher and connects with a top rope elbow drop to win the match. He will now wrestle Steve Austin in the tournament. After the match, Ric Flair and Arn Anderson run out. However, the Renegade runs out as well to prevent anything form happening. Vader comes out with a chair but Hulk Hogan comes out and hits Vader over the back with his championship. They have a stand off.
8.To close the show, Hulk Hogan and company cut a promo. Hogan says that Jimmy Hart has covered every detail and says that Savage is in the best shape of his life. Hogan says his secret weapon is Randy’s father Angelo. Hogan says he has Vader’s number. He says that Angelo taught them the reversal of the figure four. I thought that was just turning over on your stomach? I didn’t know that was difficult to know.
This was a rather boring show. Yeah, it was only hour and thank god for that. It’s been over a month since their last pay per view and it’s just been the same old build up for the matches. I can’t wait for Slamboree just so the programming can consist of new feuds. This weeks show gets a thumbs down from me.
Thanks for reading.
