1. We see footage from The Main Event where Warrior beat Dino Bravo, only to be attacked by Earthquake. Luckily, Hulk Hogan made his way down to the ring to save his opponent at WrestleMania. Hogan knocked Quake off the middle rope and to the floor to save Warrior. That actually angered Warrior who didn’t want or need Hogan’s help, I guess. We hear comments from both men, which seems to be a normal thing now every week on Superstars. Hogan talks about how they could have had WrestleMania already but God is watching down on them. Hogan is taking the straight direction, which is the positive direction towards Mania. He can’t allow Warrior to beat Hulkamania. Warrior chimes in with some grunting and says that Hogan can’t communicate with him. He wants Hogan to talk to him like he is talking to God. Warrior says he has injected Hogan with a minimal dosage of poison. He says that Hogan’s antibodies continue to prevent the poison from doing what it’s supposed to do. Warrior represents everything that Hogan fears in life. That seemed like a rather heelish promo by Warrior, actually.
2. Jake Roberts cuts a promo on Ted DiBiase. Roberts talks about taking the Million Dollar Championship and putting it in his bag with his pet snake. Roberts asks DiBiase if he is a man he can trust. Roberts is teasing that he will have more than one snake in his bag instead of the Million Dollar Championship!
3. This week, Hercules is the special guest for the Brother Love Show. Love says that Hercules can suffer a 10 from Earthquake at WrestleMania VI. Hercules knows this is going to be his biggest test. Hercules tells Love he will be shocked at what he can do and proceeds to accept the match with Earthquake at WrestleMania VI! Hercules is confident that he will have his arms raised high. “You will find out that only the strong survive at WrestleMania VI!”
4. Next week on Superstars, WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan squares off against Dino Bravo. Bravo says that he is going to prove why he is the strongest man in wrestling. Hogan believes the 24-inch pythons will take care of Bravo. He wants Warrior to watch the match because it’s what he will do to Warrior. We also hear from Earthquake who tells Hogan that no one recovers from an Earthquake!
It was another average episode for Superstars. Next week’s program looks to be far more interesting with Hogan actually wrestling on Superstars against Dino Bravo. The Brother Love segment this week was lame as no one in their right mind thinks Hercules has a shot against Earthquake. There wasn’t anything new happening here and can be skipped if you are watching the whole year or something. I’ll give it a mild thumbs down, just because there just isn’t anything needed to see here.
Thanks for reading.
