1. We are back with a featured bout! Sure, it doesn’t include the top talent but at least they are relevant, aside from Virgil. Samu and Jannetty open the match with Samu shoving the Rocker down. Jannetty comes back with a dropkick and arm drag. Fatu enters and headbutts Samu just for the hell of it. Samu got some sense knocked into him and slams Jannetty before tagging Fatu in. Jannetty ducks a clothesline to hit a cross body for a two count. Virgil tags in and comes off the top to jump down across Fatu’s arm. It doesn’t take Fatu long to get control of Virgil with a backbreaker. Virgil drops Fatu with a simple drop toe hold and maintains his offense with a hammerlock. Jannetty enters but is worked over by the Headshrinkers. Samu runs into a big boot and Jannetty continues to keep his offense simple by working over Samu’s arm. Jannetty superkicks Samu but Fatu hits him from the apron and Samu turns Jannetty inside out with a clothesline! Fatu superkicks Jannetty and Virgil enters to distract the referee as Jannetty is double teamed in the corner. Jannetty is viciously choked in the corner as well. Virgil isn’t helping his partner at all. Samu misses Jannetty in the corner and hits the ring post shoulder first. Fatu and Virgil get the tags. Virgil backdrops Fatu and dropkicks Samu to clean house. Samu is sent to the floor and Fatu is met with a double dropkick. Virgil hits a side Russian leg sweep but Fatu comes off the top to headbutt Virgil and Fatu gets the win. (**1/4. Nothing special of a match here. It’s a quality win for the Headshrinkers, but the whole match was just basic and kind of boring to me.)
2. Gorilla Monsoon hosts the WWF Update. We see footage from after SummerSlam where Lex Luger is with a few babyfaces. Luger continues to play up his love for America. Ludvig Borga barges into the room and says he isn’t impressed with Lex Luger, his friends or his country. Borga tells Luger if he enters the ring with him he will crush him! Borga threatens to break America!
3. The match between Booger and Kid is from Wrestling Challenge. Booger casually shoves Kid and slams him gut first down to the mat before delivering a leg drop. Booger follows up with a double underhook slam and begins to dance a little bit. Booger continues to dominate the match with a vertical suplex. Kid avoids Booger in the corner and nearly steals a win with a roll up. Booger is kicked out to the ring by Kid. Kid goes up top and takes Booger out with a somersault dive! Kid takes Booger out with a slingshot cross body onto the floor as well. Booger sends Kid into the ring post shoulder first and splashes him against the ring steps! Booger misses Kid and splashes the ring post! Kid tosses Booger into Booger’s face and wins by count-out. (*1/2. It was better than I expected because Kid was able to get some high risk moves. Plus, Booger was able to do more stuff with him since he is a lot smaller.)
4. Jerry Lawler talks to us to close the show. Lawler thanks for everyone’s concern over his injured left leg. Lawler’s leg is almost healed and considers it a miracle how fast it has been healing. Lawler talks about Doink not doing what he promised. Lawler notes that Doink is upset with him for what he said on Kings Court. Lawler tells Doink he is only his court jester. Yep, this is the beginning of Doink’s face turn. Lawler gives Bret Hart a warning. He beat Bret on crutches and warns Bret to stay out of his sight! Lawler will not be held responsible for what he would do to Bret if they cross paths again.
An average episode this week. I hate seeing the beginning of Doink’s face turn. It just ruins the character. The featured match this week was lackluster and not all that interesting. So, I’m giving the overall episode a thumbs down.
Thanks for reading.
