1. We see footage from last weeks Wrestling Challenge which saw the WWF World Tag Team Champions Haku and Andre the Giant get attacked by Demolition! Certainly those two teams will be meeting again in the near future.
2. After Jake Roberts took care of his opponent, Ted DiBiase and Virgil ran down to the ring. DiBiase slapped Virgil in the face and reminded him of the money to get the championship back from the snake. Virgil enters the ring but falls out of the ring after Roberts scares him by moving the bag. DiBiase is still pissed off!
3. This episode marked the debut of Tugboat Thomas. For those who don’t know, he would later be known as Typhoon and the Shockmaster in WCW.
4. We would hear from Ted DiBiase who says there aren’t enough words to describe what he wants to do to Jake Roberts. He issues a challenge to Jake Roberts next week on Superstars! Later on in the show, Roberts assures DiBiase that he will be there next week.
This was really just a show to promote the match between DiBiase and Roberts next week. There wasn’t even a Brother Love segment. I felt that it did a good job of getting me interested in the Roberts/DiBiase confrontation but I don’t expect their match to be all that long since they will save the big match for Mania, I would think. So, aside from that it was just your average Superstars program.
Thanks for reading.
