August 14, 1993
The current WCW & NWA Champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Big Van Vader (3/17/1993)
NWA World Champion: Ric Flair (7/18/1993)
WCW U.S. Champion: vacant (5/15/1993)
WCW/NWA World Tag Team Champions: The Hollywood Blondes (3/2/1993)
WCW World Television Champion: Paul Orndorff (3/2/1993)
Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Jesse Ventura.
- The Nasty Boys vs. Larry Santo & Scott Stud
Knobbs ~ “THE NASTY BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!” Well, they can’t make it any worse, right? *sigh* Before we get into the squash, I must make mention that Scott Studd is the future American Male, one-eyed Flock member and ECW alumnus better known as Scotty Riggs. He looks like a Tom Zenk twin here. To be even more specific, he looks like Tom Zenk the jobber from the summer of 1990 right about now. Sags delivers the Pumphandle Slam to Santo. Schiavone makes a faux pas by calling Sags, “Sobbs”. Jesse gets a kick out of that. Knobbs get whipped into the corner for a splash on Santo and Sags hits the Flying Elbow Drop for the win. (3:02) The Nasties would be champs within a months time and the Hollywood Blondes would be split up by November. Try and explain the logic behind THAT one.
It’s time for the WCW Magazine with Gordon Solie. He runs down the Clash card that would air that following Wednesday night.
- Vader vs. Davey Boy Smith for the WCW world title with the DQ rule waived
- Sting vs. The Colossal Kong – apparently, Solie didn’t get the memo.
- The Hollywood Blondes vs. Arn Anderson & Paul Roma for the WCW/NWA world tag titles
- A ‘Flair for the Gold’ segment with Fifi
Plus, you could possibly win a Z-28 Camaro just by merely watching the Clash of the Champions!
- Erik Watts vs. Frankie Lancaster
- Harlem Heat vs. Dave Hart & Mike Thor
Gordon Solie – again! He’s here to talk more about the upcoming Clash.
- Rick Rude & The Equalizer vs. Dustin Rhodes and a Mystery Partner
- Paul Orndorff vs. Ricky Steamboat for the WCW TV title
- Johnny B. Badd vs. Maxx Payne – Johnny’s mask or the “Norma Jean” guitar must go
- Lord Steven Regal vs. Too Cold Scorpio
Jesse meets with the Nasty Boys. Next week, they will be taking on Benoit and Eaton. The Nasties have come for the gold and they’ll take Mickey and Minnie to Nastyville if they have to when they come to Disney MGM! Yes, the Nasties will even beat up Disney mascots.
- WCW World Television Champion Paul Orndorff vs. Marcus Alexander Bagwell
The “Paula” chants get Orndorff all distracted, so Bagwell takes advantage and gets a few quick nearfalls on him. Orndorff works the crowd down on the floor and stalls as much as possible until he almost gets counted out. Because he knows no one really wants to see a ten minute long Bagwell match. Orndorff falls back to escape a sleeper hold and softens up Bagwell with elbows to set up the PILEDRIVER. Bagwell backdrops out of that and starts his comeback. He runs into an elbow in the corner and Orndorff wins with the Ric Flair corner pin. (7:11) Steamboat runs out in street clothes to yell at Orndorff for cheating and then starts a “Paula” chant. They want Orndorff in the ring, but he’s not dumb enough to take on two guys at once. So Bagwell leaves and Steamboat pulls off the shirt because he is SERIOUS. Orndorff pitches a fit as we go to commercial. ½*
They replay the announcement of Sting joining forces with Ric Flair from Saturday Night as we come to a close.
YOUTUBE IT: I might upload the Harlem Heat squash, but that’s about it from this week.
