1. Mean Gene interviews Sting this week. He talks about his match with Avalanche at the Clash of the Champions. Sting thinks that Avalanche is mistaken. Sting says he let go of the hold on Avalanche. He is talking about the Scorpion Death Lock. He puts over the Guardian Angel as someone who will be involved in the match for the entire time. Sting isn’t ever going to let go of the hold next time. As everyone knows, Sting would let go.
2. Brian Armstrong is the Road Dogg. He never stood a chance against Regal.
3. Bagwell and Anderson kick off the tag team main event this week. Bagwell takes Arn over with a hip toss early on as the crowd is firmly behind the champs. Bagwell gets a two count after a scoop slam and Arn goes to a corner for a timeout. Buck enters but can’t get anything going for himself early on. Patriot tags in but is worked over by Anderson before hitting a snap suplex. Patriot works over Anderson’s arm before tagging in Marcus. Bagwell hits a monkey flip but is soon dropped head first across the top turnbuckle by Anderson. It’s time for Bagwell to be worked over by the heels for a few moments. Bagwell is double teamed while the referee has his back turned to the action trying to get Patriot back on the apron. Bagwell nearly pins Buck with a sunset flip! Patriot ignores the referee and attacks the challengers. Meng enters and nails Patriot with a side kick causing the DQ. (*1/2. Just your formula tag team match. I actually enjoy the tag team of Anderson and Buck. Bagwell can take a good babyface beating, as well.)
A little bit better of an episode in comparison to last week. There just isn’t a lot of depth to the show. The Regal/Armstrong match wasn’t that bad of a squash match, either. What’s actually funny is that Armstrong would be part of the WWF by this point since the match was taped in October ’94. He would be the Roadie and debuted in December ’94. The episode still get a thumbs down from me, though.
Thanks for reading.
