Angle Developments/Notes:
1. Gorilla Monsoon hosts the WWF Update this week. We get a reminder as to why Randy Savage has been suspended as an announcer. He recently attacked Crush on RAW and tossed Vince McMahon to the floor to get to the man who turned on him. Monsoon announces that Quebecer Pierre has been taken out of the Survivor Series match due to injuries suffered thanks to Lex Luger. We hear from Jim Cornette and company. They reveal that Crush will be their new partner for the Survivor Series!

2. After Bigelow’s squash match four Doink’s appear on the big screen to taunt Bigelow about Survivor Series.

3. Jeff Jarrett continues to talk about using the WWF as a stepping stone. He is getting annoyed with some people to be part of his music group.

4. IRS attacks Bret from behind before the bell to get the cheap advantage. Bret quickly recovers and dumps IRS to the floor. Hart hammers away on Irwin in the corner and drops a forearm. IRS drop toe holds Bret but Hitman turns the tables on him quickly. Irwin gets out of a side headlock with a back suplex, but Hart gets the hold right back on. IRS breaks free again with a knee breaker. Mr. Fuji has made his way out to ringside since Bret has a title shot against Yokozuna on Sunday. IRS weakens Hart with an abdominal stretch. Hart looks to make a comeback moments later but is tripped by Fuji. IRS knees Hart from behind to regain control of the match. Bret knocks Fuji out with a right hand after sliding to the floor. Yokozuna and Jim Cornette have made their way down to ringside. Bret hits a side Russian leg sweep for a two count. Bret continues his usual finishing sequence with a backbreaker and a middle rope forearm drop for a near fall. Fuji hits Hart with the flag and that causes the disqualification. (*1/4. It was a boring contest, which shouldn’t be all that shocking since IRS doesn’t provide a lot of great action.) After the match, Owen Hart enters the ring and attacks IRS! Bret gets up and dropkicks Yokozuna off the apron!

5.One last thing to note. Bruce Pritchard was on commentary for the show. He decided to mock Dusty Rhodes the whole show, and it got annoying rather quickly.

Final Thoughts:
A lackluster episode of Superstars as Survivor Series is less than a week away. The featured bout was not all that good but the aftermath was entertaining. The show as a whole just failed to have anything overly exciting. Thus, this gets a thumbs down from me.

Thanks for reading.
