1.The Genius comes out to deliver a poem to the fans. He says that he is turning negatives into positives and Beefcake’s barber shop will be closing down forever. Genius considers this a warning as he warns him to be aware of his incredible IQ!
2.This week, Jim Duggan is the guest on the Brother Love Show. That was a quick recovery from bruised ribs. Duggan calls Earthquake a coward for taking him from behind and he never had a shot to get his hands on his 2×4. Duggan tells Quake and Jimmy Hart that he will not back down from him and he will continue to come after Earthquake until he is knocked down.
3.The WWF World Tag Team Championships were on the line when Demolition defended against Volkoff and Zhukov. Yeah, the same team that lost at WrestleMania in under twenty seconds. Volkoff and Zhukov argue as they tried to sing the Russian national anthem. Smash started off with Zhukov, which saw Smash worked on early. Smash didn’t take the beating long as he worked over Boris with several blows before tagging in Ax. Ax is worked on by the challengers with more simple offense such as kicks and jabs. Smash gets the hot tag and he takes care of business. Volkoff tries to help out, but is quickly sent to the floor. Zhukov is pinned by Ax after he comes off the middle rope with a forearm drop. There was nothing really here that was entertaining. Just some simple offense and an easy win for the champs.
4.We go back to Rick Rude in the gym. Rude is punching a bag and says that he is going to beat Warrior once again and end him.
5.Next week, Tito Santana takes on Akeem in a WWF Intercontinental Championship Tournament match. Also, Hulk Hogan will be a special guest on the Brother Love Show!
Sure, there was a tag team title match on the show, but it was pretty boring and aside from that, there wasn’t a whole lot going on. There has been hardly any attention on Warrior, but rather more so on Rick Rude, his challenger. Although Warrior may be the champion, it seems like the company cares more about Hogan. I’m willing to guess that as long as Hogan is on television the fans will care for him more than they will Warrior.
Thanks for reading.
