1.It only takes about five minutes into the show before we get Hulk Hogan’s announcement. Hogan thanks the fans for everything they have done during this difficult time. He didn’t believe that his retirement would come. Hogan turns his attention to Dino Bravo, Jimmy Hart and Earthquake saying that God had a plan for him and it was long term until those three men got in his way. Hogan was thinking while he was being rolled out of the arena following the attack by Earthquake. Hulkster talks about Tugboat and how he made him smile when he was recovering from his injuries. Hulk started to think about being a leader when he was riding a motorcycle with Tugboat. Hogan announces that he is not retiring and he has been reborn! Hogan is alive again and he signed the contract to wrestle Earthquake at SummerSlam!
2.Brother Love is back once again with his talk show. His guests this week are former WWF World Tag Team Champions. The Hart Foundation come out to be interviewed this week. Love is mentioning that they are former champions quite often. Neidhart says they are going to change that to currently tag team champions soon. Bret doesn’t understand how Demolition can have three guys in a tag team. Bret thinks they know if it were two on two they would lose the tag team championships. Neidhart says they would tell the champs right to their face they are going to win titles. Naturally, Demolition comes out to confront the challengers. Ax says Bret and Neidhart are the only team to have excuses before they lose. Demolition isn’t afraid of anyone and they will wrestle at any time! Bret wants a title shot right now! Neidhart suggests a handicap match! They go to the ring but are attacked by Demolition! It is broken up by several officials.
I thought it was a good episode this week. I enjoyed the promo by Hogan this week as he delivered it very well in my opinion. It was also nice to see a development in the tag team title feud between the Harts and Demolition. It’s always good when the show has angle developments involving quality talents.
Thanks for reading.
