1.) Adam Bomb defeated Tom Pritchard
2.) Eli Brothers defeated Well Dunn
3.) Lex Luger defeated King Kong Bundy by disqualification
4.) Man Mountain Rock defeated the Black Phantom
5.) Kama defeated Leroy Howard
1. We see footage from last Sunday’s Action Zone where Men on a Mission turned heel on the WWF World Tag Team Champions the Smoking Gunns. Mabel delivered leg drops and big splashes. I had no idea that a heel turn would happen on a C level program.
2. Bomb is getting some good reactions from the crowd as of late and doesn’t appear to be rising up the card by any means. He gets a squash match with a low midcard tag team wrestler in Tom Pritchard. Bomb had control for most the match, though Pritchard was able to get offense in after a distraction from Jim Cornette on the apron. Oddly enough, Tom gets really good offense in and the crowd seems kind of confused by it. Bomb blocked a monkey flip and went to the top but was stopped by Pritchard. Bomb tosses Pritchard off and hits a top rope clothesline for the win. (*. Bomb is over with the crowd, but it seemed like his reaction was much less afterward. This should have been a dominate performance, but instead Bomb has to sell a few good moves by Pritchard. Rather strange booking in my opinion.)
3. Recently, Vince McMahon talked to WWF World Champion Diesel in a production room. Diesel is watching footage on Shawn Michaels for WrestleMania. Vince asks how Diesel felt about Psycho Sid debuting as Shawn’s new bodyguard. Diesel admits he was shocked by the announcement. Diesel puts over Michaels and his agility as being the best in the company. Diesel also puts over Sid and his size saying that Sid may even be bigger than himself. He will do whatever it takes to retain the WWF World Championship.
4. An odd tag team match saw two heel teams go at it with Well Dunn taking on the Eli Brothers. A complete and utter dominating performance saw the Eli Brothers win after a spine buster/big splash combo.
5. Bundy controlled Luger early on with a back breaker but Luger quickly fought back with a series of clotheslines to knock Bundy off his feet. Luger can’t slam Bundy and is nearly pinned. Remember when Luger slammed Yokozuna, but can’t slam a smaller Bundy? The match gets a commercial break. Paul Bearer makes his way out and looks to get the urn back. Ted DiBiase notices Bearer and snatches the urn from the apron. Lex barely scoop slams Bundy, but here comes Tatanka to cause the disqualification. After the match, the British Bulldog runs down as Luger is getting double teamed. Bulldog knocks Tatanka to the floor. (1/2*. I mean, that sucked. I guess Luger is at the point where he can’t scoop slam 400lbs guys. A underwhelming match, for sure.)
A forgettable show. I feel like Adam Bomb is being set up to fail, which is confusing to me. Luger/Bundy was bad, but we’ll get Bulldog/Tatanka next week for a not so horrible match, I hope.
Thanks for reading.
