3. Craig DeGeorge conducted an interview with Ted DiBiase, Andre the Giant, Bobby Heenan and Virgil this week regarding the main event at SummerSlam. DiBiase talks about the Mega Powers and says this will be the ultimate defeat for the Mega Powers at SummerSlam. DiBiase says Hogan has too much pride and care too much about the moron fans. Andre is happy to be in the ring with the little kid, Hulk Hogan. Andre wants Hogan wants to know that Hogan won’t get the WWF World Championship back. Heenan chimes in and talks about Jesse Ventura being a fair referee for them. DiBiase says everyone has a price of the million dollar man!
4. Bass shoves the referee down and looks to use the spurs on a jobber but Brutus Beefcake runs out and makes the save by attacking Bass. Beefcake fights Bass off with right hands. Beefcake proceeds to cut Ron’s whip!
A decent episode of Superstars this week. Just one more week of hype left until the big show and then we’ll have a month or so of not so great television, I think.
Thanks for reading.
