1. WWF President Jack Tunney announces that both the WWF World Championship and the WWF Intercontinental Championship will be on the line! We get more comments from both Hogan and Warrior. Hogan believes this is the only way that WrestleMania VI could’ve gone. Hogan is going to watch Warrior’s back until WrestleMania VI. He doesn’t want there to be any excuses when they meet. Hogan is going to strike Warrior down in front of his gods. We also hear from WWF Intercontinental Champion Ultimate Warrior who is grunting. Warrior doesn’t need Hogan to watch his back. Instead, the people on his back will watch his back. I seriously have no idea what this guy is talking about. He walks where Hogan can’t breath and he walks where the pain only makes him stronger.
2. This week on the Brother Love Show, he is joined by Jake Roberts. Love yells at Roberts for stealing DiBiase’s championship. Roberts tells Love that if DiBiase wants the championship he can come here and get it before WrestleMania. Roberts came out here to introduce another man who can’t be bought and that’s Big Bossman. Bossman comes out and scares Love before walking away with Roberts. Love continues to talk about how a snake is the lowest form of life. Love says that a law enforcement officer who doesn’t take money is the lowest of the low. That comment causes Bossman to come back out and confront Brother Love. Bossman puts Love under a arrest! Bossman handcuffs Love to the guard railing and walks backstage. Love is trapped as Bossman has a ball and chain with him. Love tries to escape but he is dragged to the ring by Bossman. Bossman ends up hitting a spine buster in the middle of the ring on Love. Bossman grabs the ball an chain and drops it right on Love’s gut!
3. Honky bails to the floor as Duggan gets the crowd behind him. I have a feeling this is just going to be a stall fest. As soon as I say that, Duggan hammers away on Honky. Honky pokes Duggan in the eyes and tries to get the upper hand but Duggan rams him head first into the top turnbuckle. Here comes Greg Valentine to attack Duggan while the referee is distracted by Honky. Honky tries to hit Duggan with his guitar but that doesn’t work out for him. The referee calls for the bell as they have both been counted out. After the match, Duggan is attacked by both Honky and Valentine. Duggan gets in the ring to get his 2×4 and that scares them off. Duggan gets possession of the guitar and smashes it with his 2×4.
I thought it was an average episode this week. The Bossman stuff continues to entertain me. If they have him win the DiBiase feud and move up the ranks after that I feel like he could hold his own in the main event scene. The fans have been reacting to him since the turn. The decision to make it a title vs. title match between Hogan and Warrior is fine, I guess. All I know is that it would’ve been dumb to have the Intercontinental Championship be the only championship on the line. I’ll give the show a thumbs in the middle, overall.
Thanks for reading.
