Gary Hart says there are no problems within his group and to ignore the rumors
The Road Warriors (W/Paul Ellering) Vs The Samoan Swat Team (W/Paul E. Dangerously)
The Road Warriors win with the Doomsday Device. This match wasn't too shabby. I wouldn't call it anything spectacular, but it holds your attention, and the crowd is red hot for it.
The Z-Man (Tom Zenk) Vs The Cubin Assassin
Zenk wins with a sleeper hold. This was a pretty short match. It was almost like a glorified squash.
Ranger Ross Vs Sid Vicious (W/Teddy Long & Danny Spivey)
Sid Vicious wins in over a minute with a powerbomb. This was complete domination and Sid looked like a major badass.
Missy Hyatt & Robin Greene (Woman) go on a huge shopping spree.
Tag Team Championship
The Fabulous Freebirds (C) (Michael Hayes & Jimmy Garvin) Vs The Steiner Brothers (W/Missy Hyatt & Robin Greene)
The Freebirds retain after Hayes plants Steiner with a DDT. This was a decent match. Anytime The Steiner's are in a match in their prime, you can't go wrong with it. This would lead to Robin Greene's transformation into Woman.
Norman "The Lunatic" (W/Teddy Long) Vs "Flyin'" Brian Pillman
Pillman wins with a crucifix. This was actually pretty decent for a big man vs little man match. Pillman pulled out some cool stuff, and I thought they worked well together.
"Dr. Death" Steve Williams Vs "Captain" Mike Rotunda
Steve Williams wins. This match was alright. Even though there was some backstory to it, it felt like this match had very little heat behind it.
United States Championship
Lex Luger (C) Vs Tommy Rich
Luger wins after he clotheslines Rich on the top rope. This was a surprisingly decent match. The crowd was into it the whole way and really believed Tommy Rich could actually win the title. That's how you know you've worked a decent match.
Terry Funk is shown in a hospital bed. He claims he almost lost his arm when Flair repeatedly hit his arm with a branding iron. He vows to be there tonight to get revenge on Flair.
Ric Flair & Sting Vs "Dirty" Dick Slater & The Great Muta (W/Gary Hart)
The match ends in a DQ after Terry Funk interferes. Terry Funk puts a plastic bag on Ric Flair's head so he can't breathe. Meanwhile, Dick Slater and Muta drill Sting in the leg with a branding iron. This was a good main event with some excellent drama unfolding after the match. Flair and Funk's feud was the definition of a blood feud.
