5.) Ric Flair defeated An Unknown

Angle Developments/Notes:
1.) Arn Anderson & Paul Roma shared pre-tape comments saying that they are going to show why Roma belongs in the Horsemen. Anderson says they expect to be busted open but the Hollywood Blonds should expect it as well.

2.) Col. Robert Parker and Sid Vicious are interviewed. Parker says that Davey Boy Smith and Sting will have their luck run out tomorrow night at Beach Blast. Vicious wants to know why Sting and Smith didn’t accept the offer to runaway. Sid says that Beach Blast is past the point of no return. Sid believes that at Beach Blast fans will chant that he rules the world.

3.) During Maxx Payne’s match, Johnny B. Badd appears in the crowd wearing a mask due to his facial injury that Payne gave him. Badd says that he has something special for Maxx Payne at Beach Blast.

4.) Ric Flair is interviewed to end the program. Flair has a chance to become a ten time World Champion tomorrow night. Flair says that people believe he shouldn’t be there. Flair says that tomorrow is bigger, better and more desired than his first title win. Flair grew up watching Barry Windham grow up in this business. Flair says that until Barry Windham can beat him he will be number two behind him. “To be the man, you gotta beat the man.”

Final Thoughts:
Clearly not much to showcase here before the pay per view. It felt like a hype show and that isn’t entirely a bad thing to have for an hour episode.

Thanks for reading.
