- The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) vs. Kwang (w/Harvey Wippleman)
Just a reminder: Kwang is a masked Savio Vega who sprays green mist at people. I bet the Great Muta doesn’t even care that they’re ripping off his gimmick with a Puerto Rican. After a brief scuffle, UT delivers a big slam and misses an elbow drop. Don’t worry though, Paul Bearer lifts up the urn and everything is okay. Kwang sprays the red mist and gets his neck snapped off the top rope. Taker hits Old School, but misses a Flying Lariat and gets kicked to the floor. Will Kwang defeat the Undertaker? WE’LL FIND OUT WHEN WE RETURN. After some commercials, Kwang is still in control of the Deadman. He makes the mistake of giving Taker a clothesline over the top rope because he just lands on his feet. Back in, Kwang gets goozled, but sprays UT with the GREEN MIST~! Taker thinks that’s real cute and then sprays GREEN MIST~! of his own into Kwang’s masked face. With Kwang feeling all woozy from the poison that somehow seeped through his mask, he staggers into the Chokeslam to give the Undertaker the victory. (4:41 shown) It’s just a glorified squash, but injected with poison mist. ¾*
- Jim Neidhart (w/Owen Hart) vs. Tim McNeany
Crowd wants Bret while Vince puts him over as the “fightingest” WWF champion ever and hyping the Hart Attack tour. Owen talks about how Neidhart will take care of Bret now. What?! And here I thought you wanted the WWF title. McNeany is practically a rag doll for Neidhart here. Anvil wins with the Camel Clutch at 3:53.
Let Us Take You Back: Superstars, 9/10/94. Jerry Lawler pops Dink’s balloons. Gee, what a dastardly act.
So now it’s time for the King’s Court with Jerry Lawler. This week’s guests are Doink and Dink. It turns out that WWF President Jack Tunney wants Lawler to apologize for popping Dink’s balloons, so Lawler plans to show Dink what a big man looks like. Out comes Doink and Dink. Lawler makes fun of Doink and Dink’s clown clothes. Doink points out that Dink is wearing a Burger King crown. All this free publicity. Lawler isn’t sure if he wants to apologize just yet. To show there aren’t any hard feelings, Doink has brought Lawler a present. Oh, boy. Just to make sure it’s not a trap, Lawler lets Doink and Dink unwrap the big box. It turns out to be a trash can inside, and this whole thing is all just to hype Lawler/Duke for next week. When the audience cheers, Lawler decides to kick the trash can into the crowd to make them pay. Much like when he broke his leg in Memphis doing something he shouldn’t be doing, it appears the clowns have put a bunch of weights inside the trash can to hurt Lawler’s foot. Those clowns are gonna get it!
- Non-title match: WWF Tag Team Champions Shawn Michaels & Diesel vs. Tony DeVito & Paul VanDale
Shawn starts the match with DeVito, but the crowd wants Diesel. Shawn does all the fancy work with DeVito and then tags in Diesel who delivers the elbows, the big boot, the Side Slam, and ultimately the JACKKNIFE to VanDale. HBK splashes VanDale off Diesel’s shoulders for the three-count in 4:21.
Let Us Take You Back: Superstars, 9/10/94. Adam Bomb answered an open challenge initiated by Bam Bam Bigelow and Ted DiBiase. After an exchange, Adam Bomb caught Bigelow with a jumping clothesline to send him scurrying out to the floor with DiBiase.
- Adam Bomb vs. Duane Gill
Adam Bomb has changed his colors from red and black to blue and yellow. Savage talks about a charity softball game on the weekend of SummerSlam where he was the only one in the game to hit a home run. Vince has to bring up that last detail. Part of being macho is being modest, I suppose. More talk of a possible Adam Bomb/Bigelow confrontation down the line. Pumphandle Slam to Gill gets the win at 3:19. That was almost a Meltdown! Almost.
- The Bushwhackers vs. Barry Hardy & Bert Centeno
Oh, geez. Here we go. Abe “Knuckleball” Schwartz walks through the crowd with picket signs. There’s a players strike in Major League Baseball, don’t you know. Silly comedy match. Vince mentions that Ted DiBiase will be joined by his latest find Tatanka this weekend on the Heartbreak Hotel on Superstars. Besides all that, the Bushwhackers will meet Well Dunn! Is Vince warning us or just merely informing us? Centeno receives the BATTERING RAM as Butch covers him for the three-count at 4:14.
NEXT WEEK: Jerry Lawler takes on Duke “The Dumpster” Droese. Exciting! Plus, we’ll see a very special interview with Bob Backlund. Lex Luger will beat somebody up! Yokozuna will certainly sit on a jobber or two!
