1. Butch Reed and Slick cut a promo on Savage during his squash match. Reed is going to show Savage that he is the real Macho Man at WrestleMania IV. They are looking ahead towards Steamboat or Valentine in the second round!
2. Dino Bravo and Frenchy Martin shared some comments during Don Muraco’s squash match. Bravo puts himself as the strongest man and Muraco can’t beat him.
3. Craig DeGeorge conducted an interview with WWF Intercontinental Champion the Honkytonk Man and Jimmy Hart. Honky will be wrestling Brutus Beefcake at Mania for his championship. Honky doesn’t consider Brutus to be a test for his gold. He is the greatest champion of all-time. Honky rips into Beefcake when Brutus comes out with his clippers. Honky doesn’t believe Brutus will cut his hair off. Honky is going to finish him off for good. Brutus jumps onto the podium to chase Honky away. Brutus declares that he is going to win the championship and take Honky’s hair!
I thought it was a good episode this week. They used the better talent this week and the action was perfectly fine for the two minutes each match got. I’m liking the development of the Heenan Family as they are being built as the top heel faction in the WWF. Depending on who wins the tournament at Mania, if it’s a face, he would have plenty of challengers from that faction alone. The interview involving Honky and Brutus was decent but rather quick. It was just rather standard hype for their match.
Thanks for reading.
