From: Orlando, FL
1.) Lex Luger defeated Eddie Jackie
2.) Blue Bloods defeated Bart Sawyer & Leroy Howard
3.) Meng, Shark, Kevin Sullivan & the Giant defeated Four Jobbers
4.) Harlem Heat defeated Two Jobbers
5.) WCW Television Champion Johnny B. Badd defeated Big Bubba
1. Mean Gene talks to Ric Flair who will be challenging WCW World Champion Randy Savage inside a steel cage at Superbrawl. Flair hypes up the show and tells Savage to not take the match lightly. He believes he will be in charge at Superbrawl and is promising that Savage will be bleeding a lot.
2. Bubba attacks Badd from behind to get the early advantage. Bubba hits a clothesline as the champ came off the ropes. Bubba jumps down across Badd’s back a couple of times. Bubba tries to get a submission with a bear hug, but Badd isn’t going to give in easily. Badd gets a roll up but Bubba kicks out at two. Badd knee lifts Bubba nearly wins after punching Bubba several times. Badd is driven down to the mat with a power bomb. Bubba cuts Badd off again with a clothesline. Bubba scoop slams the champ and taunts the Diamond Doll. Badd gets out of a sleeper hold with a back suplex. Badd knocks Bubba to the floor with a few punches. Badd takes Bubba out with a somersault dive to the floor! VK Wallstreet comes down and gets punched by Badd. Badd splashes Bubba from the apron but Wallstreet enters to cause the disqualification. Here comes Jim Duggan to make the save. Bubba and VK are sent into each other and the heels are sent to the floor. (*1/4. For what it was worth, the match was okay but the finish was random and felt really cheap. But, it’s Worldwide so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by it.)
3. Mean Gene is with WCW World Champion Randy Savage to close the show. Savage tells Gene he is looking right through him and talks about letting it all hang out in the cage. We will find out who doesn’t belong with the big boys. He notes that he will be watching the Giant/Hogan cage match, as well.
A boring show overall this week. The main event was rather promising and I think Bubba/Badd could actually put together a good match if given enough time with a proper finish.
Thanks for reading.
