Goofy fun!

Live from Hershey, PA

Attendance 8,000

Your commentators are Vince McMahon & Jessie Ventura

Bobby Heenan is dressed as Davey Crockett. He smashes two small pumpkins together to explain how King Kong Bundy & Big John Studd will defeat Andre The Giant & Hulk Hogan. Interviews with Hulk Hogan, Terry Funk and 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper are there as well.

Terry Funk (W/Jimmy Hart) Vs The Junkyard Dog

Terry Funk wins after nailing JYD with Jimmy Hart's megaphone. The JYD gets his revenge by branding Jimmy Hart in the ass with a branding iron. This was innocuous stuff. It was actually somewhat fun at times if you kick your brain to the curb.

** out of 5

Capt. Lou Albano beats King Kong Bundy in a pie eating contest.

On Piper's Pit, Roddy Piper's guests are Hillbilly Jim, Cousin Junior, and Uncle Elmer. Piper, Bob Orton, and Jessie Ventura get into a melee with with Hillbilly's buddies. This would set up a six man tag team match between these guys.

Bobby Heenan defeats Cousin Junior in a pumpkin dunk contest.

Hulk Hogan & Andre The Giant (W/Capt. Lou Albano) Vs Big John Studd & King Kong Bundy (W/Bobby Heenan)

Hogan and Andre win by DQ. Well, this felt like a big match. If you're looking for match quality, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a decent spectacle, you may be pleased with this. Anytime Hogan and Andre are involved, it's must see stuff.

*1/2 out of 5

Randy Savage and Elizabeth are interviewed by Gene Okerlund. Elizabeth says she joined wrestling because she wanted to help Randy out.

Intercontinental Championship

Tito Santana (C) Vs 'Macho Man' Randy Savage

The match ends in a double countout. This was highly disappointing with a really lame finish. I hate countout finishes. It doesn't do anything for anyone. I was expecting this to get some time and be a good match. It wasn't horrible, just disappointing.

*3/4 out of 5

Roddy Piper is giving out bowling balls and bricks for Halloween. He tells the kids they are giant candy apples and chocolate. He tries to steal all the kids candy, but the kids fool him with hot peppers. Piper made this segment very entertaining.

Mr. Fuji shows off his martial arts prowess by chopping bricks in half and breaking a board over his head.

Kung-Fu Challenge

Mr. Fuji (W/Magnificent Muraco) Vs Ricky Steamboat

Steamboat wins with a dropkick from the top. Muraco and Fuji get some revenge after the match and beat Steamboat down. This wasn't as one-sided as you may think. Fuji got in some decent offense during this match. I can't fully rate this because it wasn't a full wrestling match.

N/R

We get more games to end the show.

This was silly fun. It has everything you love about the 80's. It's far from perfect, but I did manage to have a fair amount of fun.

6.3/10
