World Championship Wrestling presents Saturday Night
From: Atlanta, GA
1.)Nasty Boys defeated Los Especialistas
2.)Meng defeated Gary Jackson
3.)Johnny B. Badd fought Diamond Dallas Page to a double count-out
1.Eric Bischoff fills in for Tony Schiavone this week and cuts Heenan off a few times. We will be hearing from Vader and Hogan tonight regarding their cage match at Bash at the Beach.
2.Mean Gene interviewed the Nasty Boys after their squash match. They will be competing against WCW World Tag Team Champions Harlem Heat and Blue Bloods at Bash at the Beach. Saggs says everyone will be nastizied. Knobs says that anyone can be tagged in and anyone can win the titles. They are looking to take the whole thing.
3.A video highlighting Dave Sullivan going on a date with the Diamond Doll is shown. They went and saw a movie, apparently the Lion King. Doll says she has been having a good time on the date. Dave is playing the dumb role during the date. Doll says he can call her Kimberly. There is a bunny gram (Disco Inferno). Sullivan leaves because DDP has stolen his rabbit! Doll kisses Sullivan but DDP comes from behind and attacks Sullivan with Maxx Muscle holding him. They run when the police comes over.
4.Mean Gene interviews Col. Robert Parker and Meng after their squash match. Parker talks about WCW United States Champion Sting who he considers to be lucky holding the championship. Parker doesn’t want Gene to mention what happened at the last pay per view. Parker believes that Sting is going to be crimson and yellow at the end of the match at Bash at the Beach.
5.We go to the Dungeon of Doom with Kevin Sullivan and his master. The master gives Sullivan Vader as another present. Vader appears and confronts the master. Vader wants to know why he has been brought to the dungeon. Vader will be put on a roadkill tour which will lead him to Hogan, apparently. Vader leaves and Sullivan laughs because Vader will have to beat Hogan on his own again. I guess Vader joined them.
6.Badd opens the match with an arm drag out of the corner and plays to the crowd. DDP gets the advantage with a front face lock but that didn’t last long as Badd rolls out of it. Badd hits a head scissors to drop DDP. Badd is stopped by DDP with a mule kick and keeps control with several strikes in the corner. DDP nails Badd with a discus clothesline for a two count. Badd ducks under a clothesline and delivers a clothesline of his own. Badd dropkicks DDP to the floor but springboards off the top rope and takes both DDP and Maxx Muscle out! Badd heads to the top and hits a double axe handle back in the ring for a near fall. Badd connects with a sit down powerbomb but Muscle gets on the apron to distract the referee. They trade several pin attempt but neither man can get the win. Badd sends himself and DDP to the floor following a clothesline. Neither man can return to the ring and they are counted out. After the match, Page and Muscle attack Badd by hitting a gut buster and the diamond cutter!
7.Mean Gene interviews Randy Savage to close the show. Savage will be wrestling Big Bubba and Bunkhouse Buck in the next two weeks. Savage wanted to be put in the fire when he joined WCW. Savage says this is nothing compared to what he is going to do Ric Flair!
I like the hour editions of Saturday Night, but I thought this was a boring one. The main event between Badd/Page was okay but it just didn’t make up for the rest of the show. I’m not sure if I like Vader joining the Dungeon of Doom. Actually, I’m not even sure if he actually did since Sullivan seemed to say that they weren’t going to help Vader. Overall, not a good episode of Saturday Night.
Thanks for reading.
