Survivor Series 89

The WWF Thanksgiving Tradition continues for its third year and this year is another big one. These Survivor Series PPVs always rate highly because of their fast paced, action packed matches. The big change for this PPV is that unlike the two last editions that have featured four matches of five man teams, this one has five matches of four man teams. 

Hot off the heels of Summerslam, Hulk Hogan continues his feud with Zeus. This intertwines with two other big feuds, namely Ted Dibiase and Jake Roberts and Demolitions feud with The Powers of Pain. It’s also worth noting that Demolition defeated The Brain Busters to win back the tag team titles. Ultimate Warrior also continues his feud with the Heenan Family and The Rockers get involved after having their own problems with The Brain Busters. Dusty Rhodes continues his feud with The Big Boss Man and Roddy Pipers feud with Rick Rude also comes to a head on this show. Randy Savage and Jim Duggan have also had their problems recently and captain opposing teams. 

We get started with a cheesy montage like we have with most of these 80’s PPVs. Shots of Chicago which is where Survivor Series is coming from. It looks lovely there. Then a shot of the Rosemont Horizon and the fans all posing to camera in their various t shirts. Lots of Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan and Rockers shirts. Then to the TV truck, love all that. 

And straight to a promo from Hulk Hogan. He’s happy and thankful around this Thanksgiving time. He’s happy it’s Survivor Series and thankful for his team of Hulkamaniacs. Ted Dibiase now and he’s happy he’s rich, Jake Roberts is happy for Damian. Demolition are happy that they don’t have to fight for each other. Randy Savage he’s happy that he’s Randy Savage, Jim Duggan is thankful for living in the USA, Dino Bravo is thankful for having Earthquake on his side, Dusty Rhodes is thankful for his polka dots hmmm is he? The Big Boss Man is thankful for the judges he serves, Brutus Beefcake is thankful for cuttin and struttin, Rick Martel is thankful for his good looks, Rick Rude is thankful for his ravishing body, Roddy Piper is thankful that he’s not Ricky Rude, The Genius is thankful for being the smartest man, Mr Perfect is thankful for being perfect, The Bushwhackers aqre thankful for stuffing turkey, Bobby Heenan is thankful for spending time with all the Heenan family and The Ultimate Warrior is thankful for war tonight!

Vince McMahon takes us through the card tonight.All the teams have names this year. Interesting that The Hart Foundation are split up. We have five big matches tonight with four on each time as opposed to four matches with five on each team. It should be a good one. Now to Gorilla Monsoon at ringside with Jesse Ventura. No Tony Schiavone this time, who I quite enjoyed. Ventura doesn’t miss a show though. 

The Dream Team (Dusty Rhodes, Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Tito Santana & The Red Rooster) vs The Enforcers (Big Boss Man, Bad News Brown, “The Model” Rick Martel & The Honky Tonk Man)

Well on paper this looks like quite an even match up. The Big Boss Man has no Akeem to back him up in this one, I’m not sure why Akeem isn’t in the match but he was replaced by Bad News Brown. Rick Martel is on a role since splitting up Strike Force, Honky Tonk Man is desperate for a win. He’s been involved in the last two Survivor Series’ and got counted out of both. Bad News Brown is the wildcard, he walked out of his match last year. Dusty Rhodes is hot property at the moment and remember Brutus Beefcake main evented the last PPV, Summerslam. Tito Santana and Red Rooster haven’t been up to much recently and are the weak links in their team. 

It’s Tito and Honky Tonk Man that start things off. Honky has been a team captain at the last two Survivor Series as he feuded with Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior respectively. Honky tags out to Martel who has beef with Santana. Tito takes it to his former partner an dgets a near fall. Santana has wrestled at the last two Survivor Series PPVs but has never won a match. Boss Man and Rhodes now in and the crowd go mad. Dusty has some great offence whilst dancing around the ring. Beefcake in now and the crowd love that too. Beefcake is another guy who has wrestled at the last two Survivor Series and lost at both. In fact, none of these guys have ever won a Survivor Series match. Beefcake and Martel in now. These guys are all solid mid carders, I like this match. The Red Rooster tagged in and a big back body drop on The Model. But the offence doesn’t last long. 

Quick tags between the heel team now and it’s The Big Boss Man in. He keeps the Rooster down and there’s only man that hasn’t been in the match yet and that’s Bad News Brown. The Red Rooster and The Big Boss Man actually teamed up in the main event of last years Survivor Series. Honky and Bad News were also on the same team earlier on in the night. Santana and Martel in now and the crowd go bananas as Tito takes it to his former friend. Santana goes for the figure four but Rick throws him off. Santana goes for the roll up but Martel reverses it and pulls the tights for the three count! Martel once again gets the better of Tito and for the third year in a row Santana is eliminated from his team. Dusty Rhodes i now with Martel, hitting elbows and dropkicks. Beefcake back in, coming off a big win at Summerslam. And now The Rooster and The Boss Man. The big man locks in a bearhug but the Rooster gets out of it. Boss Man tags in Bad News Brown who doesn’t look like he wants to come in. The Roosters brings him in the hard way and lives to regret it as Brown throws him around the ring. 

Brown could do with a win, he hasn’t won on PPV since last years Summerslam. He tags in The Boss Man and the team captain runs off the ropes and accidentally nails Brown! Just like last year it kicks off and just like last year Bad News Brown walks out on his team! It’s down to 3 on 3 and right now the faces look a little stronger. It’s Brutus that comes in now to take on the Big Boss Man. Boss Man takes Brutus down and tags in the Honky Tonk Man. Honky hasn’t won a match on PPV since Wrestlemania III back in 87. He renews his rivalry with the man that beat him at Wrestlemania IV, Brutus Beefcake. Beefcake hits a high knee and then covers Honky for the three count! Honky Tonk has been eliminated and it’s now 3 on 2. Martel comes in and attacks Beefcake, choking him. He locks on a sleeper now but The Barber won’t quit. Back and forth between these two guys and Martel attempts to pin Beefcake but it’s reversed and Beefcake pins The Model! He’s out and it’s down to 3 on 1. 

It’s The Big Boss man against The Red Rooster now and it doesn’t end well for the Rooster. A Boss Man Slam is enough and eliminates him. It’s now Brutus Beefcake and Dusty Rhodes against The Big Boss Man. Quick tags between Dusty and Brutus and Dusty hits a high cross body which is enough to get the three count! Dusty Rhodes and Brutus Beefcake get the win! After the match the Boss Man attacks everyone with his nightstick. He cuffs Dusty to the ropes and attacks him some more. But Brutus comes after him with the clippers, chasing him off. A big win for two men on a roll, Dusty Rhodes and Brutus Beefcake.

Match Rating: 7.25/10* Match Of The Night

Backstage to The Boss Man who claims Dusty Rhodes is his prisoner and he got what he deserved. Slick is proud of his client. Justice will be served more apparently.

And now to Mene Gene who is stood with The Kings Court. Savage, Valentine, Bravo and Earthquake. Valentine is tickled pink! no comment on that one. Earthquake is jigging up and down. Sensational Sherri is excited too. Macho Man has goosebumps from his nose to his toes.

 

The King’s Court (“Macho Man” Randy Savage, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Dino Bravo & The Canadian Earthquake) vs. The 4×4’s (“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, “Rugged” Ronnie Garvin, Bret “Hitman” Hart & Hercules)

Not the strongest looking match up here but even looking teams none the less. Randy Savage is the only man to have won on both Survivor Series PPVs previous. Dino Bravo won last year in his match. Valentine is coming off a big win at the last PPV, Summerslam and Earthquake is the wildcard. Earthquake actually replaced Barry Windham in this match. Ronnie Garvin and Hercules have had their problems with Valentine. Jim Duggan won his match at Summerslam and is currently feuding with Randy Savage which is great for him. Bret Hart is flying solo in this one, he and Neidhart beat Valentines team at Wrestlemania. Anyway, it’s Hercules and Savage that start the match. Hercules actually Gorilla Press slams Savage who tags out to Valentine. These two renew their rivalry and Herc tags out to Bret Hart who gets a good reaction. Hart tags out to Duggan which gets a big Hoooooo from the crowd. Valentine not looking too clever at the moment. Garvin in now, he’s had his problems with both Valentine and Bravo. And in comes Dino. Bravo defeated Garvin at Wrestlemania. Garvin avoids an elbow and tags out to Hercules. Hercules hits some big clotheslines, taking the Canadian down. 

That is until Bravo takes out to Earthquake. Earthquake comes in and hits the big Earthquake splash, eliminating Hercules! That’s three loses from three Survivor Series for Hercules. Duggan in now and with some help from Bret Hart, topples Earthquake! Ronnie in now and so is Bravo. Bravo looks very big compared to Garvin. The Hammer back in an hits a big headbutt to the groin and attempts a figure four but Garvin gets out of it. Quick tags from the heels and Bravo  is back in. Savage back in with some quick jabs to Ronnie. I would be very suprised if Ronnie Garvin wins this match. He goes back and forth with Greg Valentine now then tags out to Duggan who hits a big clothesline and eliminated Valentine! It’s 3 on 3 now as Duggan gets attacked by Bravo. Valentine with 3 losses at 3 Survivor Series PPVs too.

Earthquake back in, making his PPV debut and back in comes Garvin and Bravo. Ronnie with the “Garvin Stomp” basically stomping Dino from head to toe. Both men tag out and it’s Randy Savage and Bret Hart. The commentators sell this as a big match up. Hart gets the better of Randy and the former World champion tags out to Dino Bravo. Hart hits his trademark second rope elbow for a two count. Interestingly, Danny Davis is the referee for this one. Garvin back in now and Bravo hits a sidewalk slam for the three count! Three on two now. Duggan and Hart teamed up at the Royal Rumble and were successful, could they do it again? Bravo was on the losing side of that one. Bret Hart lets Earthquake tag out to Savage. Lots of double teaming from Duggan and Hart. Savage hasn’t won on pay per view since last years Survivor Series. Hart and Bravo were both successful at Wrestlemania whilst Duggan picked up a win at Summerslam. It’s definitely Randy that needs the win in this one the most. 

Hart misses an elbow on Savage and the former champ tags out to Bravo. He locks a bear hug on Hart and then tags out to Earthquake. Quake is massive, I forgot how big he is. He keeps the advantage and then tags out to his partner, Dino Bravo. Some triple teaming from the heels as Duggan tries to get involved. Savage in now as Bravo holds the Hitman. Randy hits his own partner though which allows Hart to tag out to Duggan. Duggan is fresh and takes Savage down and then tags out to Bret Hart. Not a great move as Savage tags out to Bravo. Dino with a big shoulderbreaker and tags out to Macho Man. Savage hits the Big Elbow and Bret Hart is eliminated. It’s now down to Savage, Bravo and Earthquake against Duggan. Sherri and Jimmy Hart celebrate on the outside. Three against one, much like in the last match but Duggan takes it to everyone. He sends Bravo and Savage into Earthquake and clears the ring! Earthquake takes it to Duggan now, he hits a big powerslam and drops the elbow. Duggan got disqualified at the last Survivor Series and counted out at the one before. He’s just taking a beating now. 

Savage misses a move on Duggan and with Bravo distracting the referee, Sherri pulls the rope down and Duggan goes flying to the outside. Earthquake takes him down on the outside and the referee counts him out! Randy Savage, Dino Bravo and Earthquake win the match! Savage for the third SS in a row and Bravo for the second. Duggan gets revenge after the match but it’s too late. 

Rating: 6/10

Backstage now to Ted Dibiase, Zeus and The Powers of Pain. Dibiase and Fuji are confident for their match with the Hulkamaniacs. Ted described Hogan as the biggest turkey of them all. Zeus doesn’t say anything but he looks pretty intense. 

Now to Mene Gene who has just been in the doctors room with Dusty Rhodes. Gene says Rhodes will get his own type of justice on the Big Boss Man.

The Genius now has his own Thanksgiving poem. He’s mainly pissing off the people this time.

The Million Dollar Team (“Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, Zeus & The Powers Of Pain (Warlord & The Barbarian)) vs. The Hulkamaniacs (Hulk Hogan, Jake “The Snake” Roberts & Demolition (Ax & Smash))

Interesting that this isn’t the final match of the night. You’d think this would be the main event especially with Hogan being in there. Also worth noting that Demolition are the tag team champions again which is great. They beat the Brain Busters on Superstars of Wrestling to win the gold back. Their first reign is one of my favourites of any title reign. Nice to see Jake Roberts back after he missed Summerslam. The face team in this one is stacked. Hogan, Roberts and Demolition are so over. Dibiase hasn’t been up to much this year, after coming runner up in the Royal Rumble he had a couple of forgettable bouts with Brutus Beefcake and Jimmy Snuka. The teams have to hold Hogan and Zeus back from each other. It’s Hogan and Zeus that start the match together! The Powers of Pain, Jake Roberts and Hogan have all won Survivor Series matches before. The crowd get behind Hogan who can’t take Zeus down. A rake of the eys does it though and he follows it up with a bodyslam but Zeus is right back up. Zeus chokes Hogan and the referee tries to drag him off but the Zeus pushes him across the ring. Hebner the ref doesn’t like it and disqualifies Zeus! We’re down to four on three already!

Dibiase in to pick up the pieces and it’s not looking good for Hulk at the moment. He manages to tag out to Jake Roberts now who looks to get some revenge on The Million Dollar Man. The two men take the scrap to the outside and then back in. Tag made to Ax who keeps Ted down. Ax tags Smash who tags Hogan back in. Hulkster with a big double axe handle from the second rope. Some triple teaming from Hogan and Demolition now. Dibiase looking worse for wear now. Quick tag to Ax who gets a near fall. Dibiase knocks down the tag team champion with an elbow and is able to tag in The Warlord. The Powers of Pain and Demolition have been feuding with Mr Fuji turned his back on Demolition at last years Survivor Series.The Barbarian in and he misses an elbow from the second rope. Now in comes The Warlord. It was last years Survivor Series that Powers of Pain picked up their last PPV win. Ax runs off the ropes and Mr Fuji trips him which allows The Warlord to get the three count. Ax is out of here!

Jake Roberts and The Warlord in now and the crowd chant for a DDT! Roberts quickly tags Smash who goes back and forth with The Warlord. Warlord tags The Barbarian and he and Smash go back and forth now. And in comes Dibiase who hits a big bodyslam then misses his reverse elbow. Barbarian makes a blind tag and hits a big clothesline off the second rope! This is enough to eliminate Smash and both tag team champions are out. 

Jake Roberts in now and he tries for a DDT a couple of times but The Barbarian gets out of it. In comes The Warlord who throws Roberts from corner to corner. A big backbreaker now keeps Jake the snake down and in comes The Warlord. He’s a funny looking bloke. He keeps Jake down and then tags in Dibiase. Dibiase and Hogan were on opposite teams last year. Ted hits a piledriver and Jake gets his foot on the rope. Dibiase tags in The Barbarian and it’s not looking good for The Snake. Barbarian goes up top but misses a big headbutt! Jake crawls over and tags in The Hulkster! Hogan takes everyone down and gets a few near falls on The Barbarian. With the referee distracted The Warlord come sin for the double team but Hogan takes down both men. The Powers of Pain hit a spike piledriver on Hogan but the referee disqualifies both men! The Powers of Pain are out of here.

We’re down to Hogan and Roberts against Dibiase. Ted locks in The Million Dollar Dream and Hogan goes down. So far the captains have always made it to the very end of the match. Hogan breaks the hold, will he make the tag? Or will he win it by himself. He tags Jake! DDT chants echo around as Roberts comes in fresh. Dibiase is awesome at selling. Virgil comes running down to the ring which is enough to distract Roberts. Jake brings him into the ring and hits the DDT on the butler! Dibiase hits his big falling fist though and covers Jake with his feet on the rope for the three count! Jake is eliminated and we are down to the two captains, Ted Dibiase and Hulk Hogan.

It’s nice to see Dibiase getting a push here, he hasn’t been up to a fat lot since Summerslam 88. Hogan selling his left arm as Dibiase takes it to him. Hogan with the comeback though and the two men clothesline each other down. The crowd go mad for Hogan as both men make it up to their feet. Time for Hogan to Hulk up. He hits the Million Dollar man with a big boot then the Big Legdrop for the win! Hulk Hogan is the sole survivor of the match! 

Rating: 5.75/10

Backstage to Sean Mooney who is with Randy Savage and Zeus. They’ve got a match at No Holds Barred with Hogan and Beefcake. Savage says it’s the end of the road, Zeus just shouts. Then to Mene Gene who is with Beefcake and Hogan. Big wins for both of those tonight. Beefcake can’t believe his luck. He picked the right guy to be best mates with. They spout some rhubarb and then get attacked by Macho King and Zeus. 

Back to Sean Mooney who is backstage with Rick Rude, Mr Perfect and The Rougeaus. Rude is over confident. Perfect looking for a Perfect night as The Genius just stands and stares at him. He has a few words for Jimmy Snuka and Jimmy Hart and The Rougeaus have a few words for The Bushwhackers. 

And now to Mene Gene and Roddy Pipers nutty team. The Bushwhacker have tights full of chicken, Snuka wants some too. This team is crazy! 

The Rude Brood (“Ravishing” Rick Rude, Mr Perfect & The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques & Raymond)) vs. Roddy’s Rowdy’s (Rowdy Roddy Piper, “Superfy” Jimmy Snuka & The Bushwhackers (Luke & Butch))

A few notes first, this is the first PPV that Mr Perfect has his theme music. The Fabulous Rougeaus music is awesome and Rick Rude has his team on the front of his tights and the other team on the back of his tights underneath a gravestone, This is Pipers first match back on PPV since Wrestlemania III. Funny that Piper and Snuka are teaming up what with all their history. Rude and Perfect have been good friend since school. The teams again are quite evenly matches. They’ve done a decent job of keeping the teams even throughout this pay per view. It’s Mr Perfect that starts the match with Luke of the Bushwhackers. Luke tags out to Butch who tags to Piper who tags to Snuka who all take it in turns to bite Mr Perfect. Perfect tags out to Jacques who flips in over the top rope. Jacques Rougeaus arrogance reminds me of Brian Christopher. Jacques and Snuka go back and forth with Snuka getting some good offence in. He then goes up top and nails the Superful splash to eliminate Jacques Rougeaus! 

Rude comes in but also gets taken down by Snuka. Perfect gets tagged in and doesn’t have a lot of success either. Rude accidentally pulls the rope down and Perfect goes flying over it. Piper back in now and taking it to Perfect. Perfect won his Survivor Series match last year. Rude has lost at both of the last two Survivor Series PPVs, as had The Rougeaus. It’s a Survivor Series debut for The Bushwhackers, Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka so it’ll be interesting to see how they get on. The Bushwhackers defeated The Rougeaus at Wrestlemania and besides Roddy Piper and Rude’s recent disputes, there isn’t a lot of history between the other guys. Piper hits a piledriver and eliminates Raymond Rougeaus!

Perfect and Piper going at it now as Jimmy Hart leaves ringside. Perfect has a reverse headlock on but Roddy gets out of it and slingshots Perfect into the ringpost before tagging out to Butch. Butch with a couple of nearfalls on Perfect before tagging out to Luke. He shortly tags out to Piper who goes crazy on Perfect. Piper then tags out to Butch who comes in and bites Perfects arse! As the New Zealander celebrates, Perfect rolls him up for the three! Luke in now hitting Perfect with headbutts but he tags out to Rick Rude. Rude doesn’t have much luck either as Luke bites him too. Rude manages to nail the Rude Awakening though and pins Luke! 

It’s down to Mr Perfect & Rick Rude against Roddy Piper & Jimmy Snuka. Rude with some taunting as he takes it to Snuka. He tags out to Perfect who continues the attack. Nice dropkick from Perfect to Snuka for a near fall. Rude comes in and the pace has slowed down now at least until Piper comes in anyway. Perfect back in. The tag teams haven’t had much luck tonight. Not has Jimmy Snuka who is down to his knees. But he manages to mount a comeback for a short while then both men make the tag! In comes Rude and Piper! Piper takes down everybody then both men fight it to the outside! They scrap in the entranceway and both men get counted out! 

It’s just Mr Perfect and Jimmy Snuka left. This is the first match in which the captains haven’t got down to the very end. Perfect with some nice wrestling moves takes Jimmy to the outside. Can Perfect win at back to back Survivor Series’? Some near falls from both men but the match continues. Snuka drops his head and Perfect hits the Perfect-plex for the win! This is a big win for Perfect who could get a push now. Snuka tries to get some revenge after the match but PErfect and The Genius scarper. A good win for Perfect.

Rating: 5.5/10

Backstage to Sean Mooney who is with a celebrating Rick Rude and Fabulous Rougeaus. Mooney wants to know where Bobby Heenan is and it’s none of his business. Perfect joins them and is happy at his win.

Now to Mene Gene who is with Ultimate Warrior, Jim Neidhart and The Rockers. All four men are excited about their match. It’s an odd team but the Warrior knows that they should prevail!

The Ultimate Warriors (Ultimate Warrior, The Rockers (Shawn Michaels & Marty Jannetty) & Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart) vs The Heenan Family (Andre The Giant, Haku, Arn Anderson & Bobby “The Brain” Heenan)

And all hell breaks loose before everyone is even out there! It’s Ultimate Warrior that makes the save and the bell rings! Due to failing a drug test and being fired by the WWE Tully Blanchard has been replaced by Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. Warrior clotheslined Andre out of the ring just as the bell rung and as a result he has now been counted out! I don’t fancy the chances of Arn Anderson, Haku & Bobby Heenan. Haku is in now with Jim Neidhart. Haku was the last man eliminated in his match last year. Ultimate Warrior won his match last year so he’ll be looking for two wins out of two. Neidhart gets attacked from all angles and after a thrust kick from Haku, Neidhart is out of there. 

Three on three now as Shawn Michaels comes in. The Rockers are still looking for their first win on pay per view as they make quick tags to get the better of Haku. Haku tags Anderson who is coming off good wins at Wrestlemania and Summerslam over Strike Force and The Hart Foundation.The Ultimate Warrior in now and going back and forth with Haku. Warrior is still the Intercontinental champion having beat Rick Rude at Summerslam. Jannetty with a headlock on Haku now. If I had to make a prediction now, The Rockers will both go out, followed by Anderson and Haku to leave Warrior and Heenan. Speaking of The Brain, he comes in and straight back out. Haku with a thrust kick on Jannetty but The Rocker kicks out! Heenan back in now and lays a few boots before pinning Marty for the three!

Ultimate Warrior and Arn Anderson in now. Warrior locks on a bearhug but Arn gets out of it and tags Haku but he gets caught in a bearhug. Warrior tags Michaels who nails a beautiful dropkick on Haku. Interesting to see Michaels and Warrior team up here, they were two of my favourites growing up. The Heenan family triple team Michaels wearing him out but not for long as he gets the better of Anderson. Shawn tags Warrior and he throws Anderson around like a ragdoll. Warrior then fires in Michaels but Arn gets the upper hand. Haku now in and Shawn goes up top and hits a high cross body for the three count! 

It’s down to Shawn Michaels and Ultimate Warrior against Arn Anderson and Bobby Heenan. Anderson has some harsh words for Heenan who doesn’t want to make a tag. Michaels and Anderson collide in the ring and both men need to make the tag. Neither do and there’s lots of action between Anderson and Michaels until Anderson hits his trademark spinebuster which eliminates Michaels from the match. 

Warrior and Heenan now in the ring but Bobby tags out to Anderson as Warriors eyes light up. Warrior hits the Gorilla Press and splash on Arn Anderson which just leaves Ultimate Warrior and Bobby Heenan! The crowd go nuts and Warrior looks like a true main eventer in this match. Warrior throws Heenan from one corner to the other Warrior hits a flying tackle and a big splash to pick up the win! Warrior wins his matches as the sole survivor for the second Survivor Series in a row! 

Rating: 6/10

 

Well that was an interesting show. There were no wrestling classics but the matches were solid enough from top to bottom. There were quite a few substitutions from the advertised card which included Akeem, Barry Windham and Tully Blanchard being replaced with Bad News Brown, Earthquake and Bobby Heenan. I gave the opening match the match of the night award, I guess it was the fastest pace and kept my attention for the longest. It’s particularly interesting that Ultimate Warriors match closed the show. It’s shows how much they want to push him and take him to the next level. Warrior has mainly been feuding with The Heenan family and I would have liked to see Warrior vs. Andre on pay per view. Hogan continued his feud with Zeus and it’s nice that the Million Dollar Man was bought back into it because he’s more than capable as a main event heel. Demolition continued their feud with The Powers of Pain and it’ll be interesting to see who gets the tag title shot at Wrestlemania as the build begins.

Overall this was a good, fun show. Plenty of the roster got showcased and there were some big wins for Dusty Rhodes, Brutus Beefcake, Randy Savage, Dino Bravo, Earthquake, Hogan, Mr Perfect and The Ultimate Warrior. It shows just what direction the promotion is heading in.

Overall Rating: 61/100 (Ranked #1 out of 14)
