Winners: Team New Japan over Team USA via Tiger Suplex!

Senshi vs Christopher Daniels

Daniels is in shock, it is Low Ki now called Senshi. The two were in Triple X together, this is old friends turned enemies. Chop and kicks by Senshi, Daniels fires back. High elbow by Senshi, Daniels is being chopped to death. Leaping leg lariat by Daniels, high elbow for two. Daniels misses a high knee, flapjack by Senshi. Kicks hard, two for Senshi.

Not the heated war I could have wanted, the fans welcome back Senshi but needs to work on his wrestling gear. Baggy Nike shorts are not wrestling gear but yes, the match was fine in parts but if you want Senshi to come back strong, a big win over Daniels would be great. However, a roll-up using the cage I do not see that as a great comeback for Senshi.

Winner: Senshi over Daniels via Roll-Up!

Country Whipping/Arm Wrestling Match Konnan vs Bullet Bob Armstrong

Well, Machete is gone. Hernandez is in, we have the arm wrestling match. Konnan makes excuses, good stuff. Downhill from there, this feud went from personal to joke. Bullet Bob beats Konnan, Mexicans are not good at arm wrestling. LAX and The James Gang have words, LAX are suspended if they do not take a whipping. They take the whippin, waste of time. DUD!

X-Division Escape Match (Puma/Petey Williams/Elix Skipper/Chase Stevens/Shark Boy/Chris Sabin)

Pins and submissions are the ways to eliminate until there is two, the final two can only win by escape. Williams and Shark Boy begin, they tarde holds. Slap by Williams, Williams stomps all over Shark Boy. Shark Boy comes back with chops, ten punches. Biting, Williams rakes the eyes. Here comes Puma, dropkick by Shark Boy. Hurricanrana by Shark Boy on Puma, missile dropkick.

Tag to Skipper, spinning kick by Skipper. Back drop by Skipper, twisting leg drop for two. Skipper climbs the cage, Shark Boy nails a Russian Legsweep off the cage. Williams comes in and nails The Canadian Destroyer on Shark Boy for the elimination, Shark Boy is first out.

Sabin and Williams trade moves, tornado DDT by Williams for two. Straight-jacket hold by Williams, Sabin tags Stevens. Stevens throws Puma into the cage, everyone annhiliates one another. Stevens is on top of the cage, Stevens does a shooting star press off the cage. Skipper drills Stevens with Sudden Death for the elimination. Williams rolls-up Skipper with ease with a sunset flip.

Williams tries to jump to the floor but D'Amore catches him while Sabin jumps down for the win.

 Standard X Division Match, nothing that we have not seen before. Fast-paced action that grabs your attention but fast paced eliminations suck you out of it when it comes down to the only two worth a damn and we have a comedy bunder finish from Team Canada. Been done to death, I beg you for something new!

Winner: Chris Sabin over Petey Williams via Escape!

(X-Division Championship Match) Samoa Joe (C) vs Sabu

Sabu comes right at Joe, dropkick to the knee. Camel Clutch, Joe kicks back at Sabu. Chair to the head by Sabu, Joe shakes it off and punishes Sabu. Front chancery from Joe, more stiff kicks.

Triple Jump Moonsault is stopped as Sabu is hit with the chair, Muscle Buster.

That was disappointing, it never really got going for me. There was action and some nice spots but it seemed all a bit basic and contained when all was said and done, I also am surprised to see Joe as champion again like why would Daniels win it at the last pay per view? Anyways, not a fan of this match.

Winner: Samoa Joe over Sabu via Muscle Buster!

Team 3D vs Team Canada W/ Scott D'Amore

Spike is here, sorry Brother Runt. It is Capture The Flag, Brother Ray and Roode brawl while A1 and Brother Devon brawl. Tornado rules, everyone is brawling.

Low blow to A1, Acid Drop on A1. Roode battles but eats the cage, 3D on Roode. Runt climbs and gets the flag.

It was grand, nothing special and nothing I will remember anytime soon. Team 3D do all their regular stuff, Team Canada are beyond stale and they have a match where Team Canada fuck things up again and manage to lose the match.

Winners: Team 3D over Team Canada via Capturing The Flag!

(TNA/NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match) Christian Cage (C) vs Abyss W/ James Mitchell

Abyss awakened the beast in Christian, Christian was assaulted at home, choked out in the ring and his wife stalked by Abyss. It was all or nothing for Christian, Christian misses a stinger splash at ringside, Abyss brawls in the crowd. Abyss and Christian brawl on the stage and in the crowd, Abyss waffles Christian with the cage door. Christian is pressed into the cage by Abyss with ease, Christian is whipped into the corner once more. Christian is splashed up against the cage, powerbomb against the cage by Abyss.

Make it two times, chest chops from Abyss. Christian rallies, forearms to the face. Abyss clotheslines the referee, two bumps in back to back matches. Christian nails a diving tornado DDT, cover but no referee. Micthell tosses Abyss the championship and cane, Christian dodges and nails The Unprettier for two. Frog Splash off the top of the cage, 1........2.... Abyss kicks out! Unprettier attempt is blocked for Shock Treatment. Abyss pulls out his thumbtacks.

Abyss is spreading the tacks, Christian smacks the cane over the back of Abyss. Christian is knocked from the cage by Abyss, Abyss slams the referee into the cage. Abyss and Christian brawl atop the cage, Abyss wants a chokeslam. Sunset flip powerbomb onto the tacks, no referee. Two for Christian, Black Hole Slam for two. Abyss has another bag, more thumbtacks. Chokeslam is avoided, Unprettier on the tacks.

Was there any ever doubt that Abyss would eat an Unprettier on the tacks? I mean, it happens so God damn often with this company. Abyss takes out tacks, Abyss eats said tacks. It had some great spots but it is every Abyss match ever and just like the X Division matches and Team Canada, I require something new because Abyss is wrestling the same match over and over.

Winner: Christian Cage over Abyss via Unprettier!

(Lethal Lockdown Match) Team Jarrett (Jeff Jarrett/Scott Steiner/AMW) vs Team Sting (Sting/Rhino/Ron Killings/AJ Styles)

Simple formula, two men start and we continue until everyone is in the match. You can then win by pin-fall or submission, Team Jarrett win the coin toss so they will have the man advantage. Harris and Styles begin, Harris waffles Styles, dropkick by Styles. Harris spears Styles into the cage, fallaway slam onto the cage. Drop toehold by Styles and a knee drop on Harris, Styles kicks the head of Harris. Leaping splash into the cage on Harris, Harris is banged off the cage. Harris catches Styles for The Catatonic.

 Styles counters the catatonic for The Styles Clash, here comes James Storm. Styles dropkicks the cage door into Gail Kim's face, Storm slams the door on Styles. Styles meets the cage wall, Eye of The Storm. Styles is bleeding, Styles battles AMW. However, Hart Attack from AMW. Rhino is in for Team Sting, Rhino throws haymakers at AMW. Storm avoids the gore, Rhino is down. Harris clotheslines Styles, Jarrett comes and is waffled by Team Sting. AMW double team Styles and Rhino, Team Jarrett are in control. Killings comes in to even the numbers, Lie Detector for Jarrett. Osaka Street Cutter by Killings, Styles is on top of the cage.

Tower of Doom spot, Steiner comes in and suplexes everyone. Steiner talks trash with everyone being busted open before the man called Sting enters the chaos. Team Jarrett eat forearms and cage walls, inverted atomic drop. Stinger Splash on Team Jarrett, the roof comes down as there are weapons everywhere.

Styles sets up a ladder on the roof, Storm is on the table. Styles splashes through Storm on the table, everyone takes turn hitting finishers. Steiner gets caught by Sting in The Scorpion Death Drop, rhandcuffs to the head by Harris to Sting. Scorpion Deathlock by Harris on Sting, Sting reverses the hold and applies it to Harris for the win.

That was a lot of fun, similiar to War Games, The Lethal Lockdown match has a simple story of the heels beating up the babyfaces until the teams are even and all hell breaks loose. Jarrett, while being on my most hated list for his preposterous main event matches in TNA is perfect coward here shitting himself when Sting comes in, I would have liked to seen more interactions between the two but it was clear they were saving it. Styles was great fun in this match too, already a huge star by this point I would just pull the trigger on Styles or Joe.

Winners: Team Sting over Team Jarrett via Scorpion Deathlock!

This was TNA's Lockdown of 2006, a very average show in the books for TNA. I thought there was nothing of substance on this pay per view when wall was said and done, what did Senshi do in his comeback match? What did standout about The World Cup matches? What did Steiner do for Team Jarrett? Why bring in Sabu against Samoa Joe for a match like that? The main event was fun, they saved Sting vs Jarrett and I want to see it but I do not know how much more I am looking forward to when it comes to next month and that is not a good thing. It is one thing for some acts/gimmicks being stale, it is another thing if the product is stale. Thanks for reading and remember: There's always another night!

TNA Destination X 2006 Review

Image result for tna destination x 2006

Hello and welcome to another edition of Seanomaniac Wrestling Reviews, the only wrestling review series on the internet that continues to let you down like an episode of Raw! It's TNA Destination X 2006, it has been long enough since I have featured TNA on the channel and with Wrestlemania 24 out of the way, I might aswell start with TNA so I have little memory of the card but I am sure you will figure it out as we go along so this is TNA's Destination X 2006!

Alex Shelley vs Jay Lethal

Huge Lethal chants to begin, two ROH guys who are rising the ranks of TNA. Shellley takes down Lethal, Lethal kicks off Shelley. Test of strenght, takedown from Shelley into a tequila sunrise, Lethal escapes with a headlock takedown. The two trade holds with Shelley raking the nose of Lethal they are slapping one another in a bizarre hold. Front chancery from Lethal, arm-drag. Arm-drag by Shelley, they sweep one another and we have a stand-off. Shelley wants a handshake, right hands from Lethal.

Good way to kick off tyhe show, Lethal is made out to look great countering Shelley at each corner, coming close on a number of occasions but in the end, Shelley is more craftier and has the experience to put away Lethal. Good showing for both, crowd loved the match.

Winner: Alex Shelley over Jay Lethal Via Shiranui!

Matt Bentley W/ Traci vs Lance Hoyt

Bentley turned heel and took out Hoyt with a chair, busting Hoyt open. Hoyt vows for revenge in this match, Bentley hammers Hoyt. Hard Irish whip by Hoyt, military press is avoided but not the back drop. Clothesline by Hoyt, Traci tries teasing Hoyt but Hoyt clotheslines Bentley hard. Big boot misses, chokeslam is stopped but powerslam connects for two. Sidewalk slam by Hoyt for two,  Bentley is placed on the top rope. Low blow by Bentley, Traci distracted the referee.

Young and Shelley are looking for Sting in the rafters to find Sting, funny stuff. Traci is showing the poster to Bentley, Bentley is distracted. Massive boot and Hoyt wins.

Well, I felt it was a nothing match. I mean they were working hard but the story did not really come through and to top it off, they cut away from the match to show Young and Shelley looking for Sting. The ultimate fuck you when we take away the audience from watching wrestlers in the ring and why would Traci be so stupid to distract Bentley with the flyer? I do not ever remember her being stupid, this sucked!

Winner: Lance Hoyt over Matt Bentley via Big Boot!

Team Canada W/ Scott D'Amore & A1 vs The Naturals

Poor old Team Canada, they have well and truly run their course and what could really bring me down is when they work with The Naturals who are bland babyfaces and heels. Roode jumps Stevens to start, elbows and stomps from Roode. Side headlock by Roode, shoulder block too. Stevens trips Roode, side headlock. Dropkick by Stevens, shot to the ribs. Russian legsweep for two, Stevens tags Douglas. Roode tags in Young, Douglas nails arm-drags into an armbar. Tag to Stevens, double necktie neckbreaker for two, tag to Douglas.

Douglas nails a double arm DDT on Roode for two, Young saves Roode from a powerbomb. Tower of Doom spot, D'Amore distracts Douglas. Young nails Douglas with a hockey stick for the win.

Bleh was my feeling towards this match, the cards that TNA produce usually have no place on pay per view, they are at home on Impact. This is a perfect example, no real reason for this match other than oh hey Team Canada are popular let's put them in another tag match and I am just fed up of it, time to move on as we have seen everything we could ever see.

Winners: Team Canada over The Naturals via Hockey Stick!

The James Gang & Bullet Bob Armstrong vs LAX

Machete obviously screwed up somewhere because I only remember Homicide and Hernandez. Anyways, LAX took out Bullet Bob Armstrong so The James Gang are out for blood.

The James Gang take out LAX, BG and Machete to start. Boot by BG, punches. BG has Homicide, Machete smacks BG in the back. Spinning heel kick by Homicide, snapmare and dropkick. Tag to Machete, triple team on BG.  More triple teaming, punches by BG. Machete nails a low blow, boot to the side of the head, more triple teaming from LAX.

Homicide is tossed to the floor, Machete is surrounded. Triple team right hands into The One and Only for the win.

Another fine match, this has a tastier storyline than the previous matches and that's what gave it an edge. They kept Konnan and Bullet Bob away from one another until the end, Kip James' frustration was a welcome sight.

Winners: The James Gang over LAX Via One & Only!

(International X Match) Petey Williams W/ A1 vs Puma vs Sonjay Dutt vs Chris Sabin

I feel I should call this The Other X Division Guys Match because they are all here. The focus was usually around Styles and Daniels along with their opponent of the month which left a number of guys competing in meaningless multi-man match. This is that match as Puma and Dutt start, beautiful transitions and holds. Stand-off, Williams and Puma are legal. Sabin and Williams are in, arm-drags and handstands/leapfrogs. Williams eats a springboard dropkick for two, Williams asks for a tim!e-out. Eye rake by Williams, roll-up for two. Everyone trades roll-ups, tornado DDT by Sabin for two.

Double underhook supex by Puma for two, Dutt saves the match. Williams flapjacks Dutt, Canadian Destroyer on Dutt. Puma spikes Williams with a blockbuster, Cradle Shock by Sabin on Puma for the win.

Fast-paced exciting match up right there, similar to the first match. It is all balls to the walls, an exhibition to whoever is in the match, everyone looks fantastic coming out of it and it was what TNA was the best at during this timeframe due to their poor booking of the main event, do not worry I will get there soon enough! But matches like this made people fans of TNA and those fuckers cut away immediately not even giving the wrestlers that standing ovation moment when clearly the crowd wanted to do it.

Winner: Chirs Sabin over Everyone Via Cradle Shock!

Jeff Jarrett/AMW/Abyss vs Team 3D/Rhino/Ron Killings

Everyone in this match has issues, we start with a brawl. Abyss and Rhino pair off, Team 3D and AMW pair off. Killings and Jarrett are on the ramp, the others are in the crowd. Rhino wants to gore Abyss off the rafters again, Abyss boots Rhino Down. They continue to brawl around the arena, this goes on for a solid five minutes.

Death Sentence on Devon, Killings is handcuffed to the corner but no Harris is in the cuffs. Scissors Kick on Storm, referee is pulled out by Jarrett.

Jarrett and Killings in the ring, back drop by Jarrett. Stroke is blocked, Harris pulls the leg of Killings and The Stroke connects in the middle of the ring, Team Jarrett take the win.

Five minutes of crowd brawling to begin is not a good start in my book, its just punching for five minutes, it stinks of laziness. No Sting whatsoever despite all the teases, the match goes for a long time without the flurries of excitement of an X Division match while the finish is as flat as a pancake.

Winners: Team Jarrett over Team Killings via Stroke!

(TNA X-Division Ultimate X Championship Match) Samoa Joe (C) vs Christopher Daniels vs AJ Styles

Three of the best battle it out in this match with Joe being at a disadvantage due to his size, Daniels & Styles try to climb the structure but Joe dominates on the ground. Dropkick by Styles, Styles & Daniels climb to the cables. Both men kick one another down, flying knee by Joe. Styles & Joe battle in the ring, forearms by Styles. Phenomenal Forearm, Joe elevates Styles onto Daniels, diving tornillo from Joe.

Joe wallops Styles with a chair, Dnaniels dropkicks the chair into the face of Joe. Daniels climbs the cables and grabs the championship, simple as that.

Well, that was out of the blue. The match was getting to a good point, some really nice stuff mixed in there and on Daniels' first attempt at properly trying to grab the championship, Daniels gets in like a piece of cake. No struggle, no triumph over Joe. Daniels just got the championship, I thought that was rather tame to be honest with you, rather underwhelming.

Winner: Christopher Daniels over Everyone Via Retrieval Of The Championship!

(NWA/TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match) Christian Cage (C) vs Monty Brown

Cage took the championship from Jarrett (Thank You Jesus!) and now faces one of Jarrett's henchmen in Monty Brown. To be honest, Brown's momentum had been stalled almost to a standstill after his initial dominance in the company, Brown was turned heel and has been just kind of there. Christian has taped ribs due to Brown's attacks, Christian takes the back to begin the match.

Clean break from Brown, hammerlock into a side headlock by Christian. Shots to the ribs and a shoulder block by Brown, test of strength. Irish whip by Brown, chops by Christian. Brown tosses Christian to the floor, shots to the ribs by Brown. Christian is tossed into the crowd, the two begin brawling in the crowd. We get back to the ring, top rope axe handle is a bad idea for Christian as Brown smashes the ribs. Chops by Christian, Brown military presses Christian to the floor.

Onto the guardrail, Christian's ribs are the target. More shots to the ribs, Christian is suplexed rib first onto the top rope. Ribs first again, Christian is sent into the ringpost. Right hands to the head, abdominal stretch by Brown. Christian battles back but eats a knee to the ribs, knees to the ribs some more. Christian is Irish whipped, elbow from the corner. Tornado DDT is countered again, two for Brown. Rights by Christian, massive DDT out of desperation.

Clothesline by Christian, make it two. Rib shots by Brown, leaping leg lariat by the champion for two. Ten punches by Christian, Brown shoves off the champion twice. Knees and facebuster by Christian, frog splash misses. Bodyscissors by Brown, Christian escapes and nails a top rope senton for two. Unprettier is countered for a powerbomb, two for Brown. Unprettier is blocked twice, F-5 for two. Pounce is blocked, Alpha Bomb is countered for an Unprettier, Christian Wins!

Solid main event match, Christain and Brown tell the story of Brown decimating the ribs of Christian with raw power throughout the match. Christian weathers the storm to survive and plants Brownwith One Unprettier to end it all! Brown looked good in this match, Christian was able to much of the heavy lifting and it did not go too long.

Jarrett comes out and wants a rematch for the championship. Christianand Jarrett just brawl instead. Fair enough so, more people spill out, babyfaces and heels before Sting or Steve Borden comes out which leads to the debut of Scott Steiner. Steiner Recliner!

Winner: Christian Cage over Monty Brown via Unprettier!

That was TNA's Destination X 2006, a good pay per view but not a great pay per view. It has the usual TNA charm of exciting X-Division matches  but beyond that, some things could have been better. Matches that mean nothing, Hoyt vs Bentley? The Naturals vs Team Canada? It's notr only been done but there's nothing to these matches. Similar with the four way, it was fun but is it any different to anything I have seen or will see as I cover TNA pay per views? Probably not and more importantly, is there any growth in terms of any wrestler in this match? No they will be doing in the next pay per view so the question becomes why should I care? Joe vs Daniels vs Styles was disappointing, it ended without much drama at all. For a feud built up and it ending in TNA's signature match, you would think this would be special. Nope, Daniels wins with ease it was just weird. Good in parts, same old shit in others. Thanks for reading and remember: There's always another night!

WWE Wrestlemania 24 Review

Image result for WWE Wrestlemania 24 

Hello and welcome to another edition of Seanomaniac Wrestling Reviews, the only wrestling review series on the internet that makes less sense than Roman Reigns vs Bobby Lashley again! It's WWE's Wrestlemania 24, the grand-daddy of them all. Nothing bigger, nothing sweeter. Tonight's feature matches include the always fun Money In The Bank match, a multi-man ladder match where the winner will earn a briefcase that entitles them to a championship match at a time of their choosing. We also have Floyd Mayweather vs The Big Show, the best boxer in the world vs the biggest athlete in sports entertainment. Could Orton's days as champion be numbered with him defending against Triple H and John Cena in a triple threat match and what of Edge who stares down The Undertaker, the man he twice screwed over on his way to holding the championship. It's Wrestlemania and it's on!

Opening Promo

What does Wrestlemania mean to you? Our entire careers? Steal the show? Nothing more high-profile, becoming immortal at Wrestlemania. A lot can happen in a year, twists and turns. Epic stuff, not going to lie this was brilliant. Quite possibly the best I have seen in a while.

Good stuff in this street fight, they made the most of the time they had inside of the ring. Some goood spots in there, they had the crowd going but I wonder if the reaction from the fans and the feud itself warranted a longer and more bloody match between the two. I mean the angle started off as comedy but Finlay was fighting against Mcmahon's handpicked guys, Finlay was fighting against The Evil Vince Mcmahon so I thought it could have been something more but a hardcore brawl is usually a good way to start the show.

Winner: JBL over Finlay via Clothesline From Hell!

Enjoyed this match when all was over.

The match just toys with your emotions throughout as Flair reaches deep down inside his trick book to overcome Michaels but Michaels is simply too strong and it is game over for The Nature Boy. It would have been one of the best returements of all-time had Flair not gone to wrestle in TNA but if you blank out that trash, it is a beautiful moment with a quite good match.

Winner: Shawn Michaels over Ric Flair via Sweet Chin Music!

It felt like it was just there, filling up the card which is a bizarre spot for a WWE Championship match but that's just the way I saw things!

Winner: Randy Orton over Everyone via Punt Kick!

Overall, it was fun but it was dull for me at times, still far more entertaining than anything they have done with celebrities in years.

Winner: Floyd Mayweather over Big Show via Knock-Out!

Usually, Taker's opponents try to go toe to toe or avoid Taker, they rarely combine the two and NEVER have an answer for everything. There is a call back to Survivor Series and Armageddon with The Edgeheads and the camera shot, Edge used everything and just when Edge believed he had achieved a feat nobody else could achieve, Taker brings out a move that Edge never saw coming and that was it, Undertaker had been screwed over by Edge throughout the year but now, The Deadman has had his redemption.

Winner: The Undertaker over Edge via Hell's Gate!

That was WWE's Wrestlemania 24, a very good Wrestlemania in my books! Things start off hot with the likes of The Belfast Brawl and The Money In The Bank providing huge memories on top of a new star in CM Punk. The shortcomings for me came in the Playboy tag garbage, just a filler way to get everyone on their card, nothing of note there while that triple threat for the WWE championship was just disappointing, I do not know what made it so boring because these were some of the biggest starts the company had but everything just seemed quiet. Flair vs Michaels was super emotional, it might not have been the best match on the night but nobody could not feel in that match as two of the very best killed one another. The main event was fantastic, could not have done it better it was the finest match of Edge's career and another great Wrestlemania match in Undertaker's belt. Thanks for reading and remember: There's always another night!

Show transitions in a fantastic fashion by turning on Mysterio and Floyd Mayweather breaks the nose of The Big Show. Money, Money, Money!

This match was good but just did not have the charm of the Smackdown elimination chamber. The eliminations came quick and fast, not much pacing between them which is what hurt the match in my opinion. If there was time between Jericho being eliminated or Triple H coldly Pedigreeing Michaels to achieve his goal of becoming WWE Champion. Hardy kicking out of the Pedigree was a huge moment but they squandered the moment seconds later but I can understand why they did not want Hardy going down so easily. So, there were some cool spots, Umaga's elimination was a particular highlight but if the eliminations were given time to breathe, I thought it could have been much better!

Winner: Triple H over Jeff Hardy via Pedigree!

Well, that was WWE's No Way Out 2008, a very good pay per view from WWE. No real bad matches on this card, we have two very good chamber matches with the Smackdown chamber match being excellent. The WWE Championship had great heat to it with the crowd's energy being at a peak during this match, Big Show's return was a great way to get the fans to forget about Mysterio and Edge while Flair and Kennedy was good stuff too. So, I would recommend this pay per view, WWE was in full Wrestlemania mode and it delivers in bucketloads with exciting and dramatic chamber matches coupled with a great return and WWE championship match. Thanks for reading and remember: There's always another night!

Hello and welcome to another edition of Seanomaniac Wrestling Reviews, the only wrestling review series on the internet that is All In! It is all about Hogan vs Orndorff inside of a steel cage, this is going to be a massive edition because we are opening with a cage match while we also have George The Animal Steele batting long-time nemesis Randy Savage, Adrian Adonis vs Roddy Piper and King Harley Race taking on The Junkyard Dog. Another show that promises to be a tonne of fun, cannot wait for this edition.

(WWF World Heavyweight Championship Match) Hulk Hogan © vs Paul Orndorff W/ Bobby Heenan

Kicking it off big, we have the cage match between the two. Orndorff and Hogan had battled at The Big Event with Orndorff almost upsetting The Hulkster but this should settle the feud, it’s been six months of war between the two. There has to be a winner, only one way to win and that is by escape. Also note that there are two referees on the floor, one of them being corrupt referee Danny Davis.

Orndorff interrupts Hogan entering the ring, Orndorff whips Hogan with the championship. Orndorff almost escapes immediately before Hogan grabs the leg of the challenger, Orndorff begins dropping elbows on Hogan. Hogan thwarts the escape of Orndorff once more, clothesline by Mr. Wonderful. Orndorff almost out of the cage, Hogan has Orndorff by the hair. Hogan uses the cage to choke Orndorff, right hands both men are high on that cage. Orndorff is upside down, being smacked off the cage. Hogan chokes Orndorff with his headband, Hogan begin climbing the cage but Orndorff is too quick, a right hand floors Hogan.

Knee across the throat from Orndorff, Orndorff misses a series of elbows on Hogan. Hogan is powering up, Orndorff eats massive rights. Axe bomber from Hogan, Danny Davis is slow to unlock the cage door. Low shot from Orndorff, Hogan reverses Orndorff and Orndorff bangs off the cage wall.

Danny Davis shoves down Joey Marella, we need a video replay. Orndorff knees Hogan in the back who was distracted with Davis.

Marella rules that the match will continue, Orndorff nails a top rope elbow. Orndorff attacks Hogan with his headband, knee to the back of the head. Hogan Hulks Up as Orndorff has gone too far, right hands from Hogan. Chops too, Orndorff meets the cage. Orndorff is dazed, Orndorff meets the cage for a fourth time.

Heenan is down, atomic drop to Orndorff. Heenan is hurled to the cage, it is a race between Hogan and Orndorff but Hogan climbs over and wins the match.

So much fun in this match, starts off great with Orndorff attacking Hogan. I have enjoyed the heel run of Orndorff thoroughly, always seemed like a loose-cannon so being a heel came naturally. This match had the controversial finish, the screwy referee, Bobby Heenan doing what Heenan does best and Hogan overcoming the odds, you could not ask for a match on television, it was fantastic fun!

Winner: Hulk Hogan over Paul Orndorff via Escape!

(WWF Intercontinental Championship Match) Randy Savage © W/ Miss Elizabeth vs George The Animal Steele

Steele has a big surprise for Savage, Steel carries an action figure of himself. Steele gives the action figure to Elizabeth, Savage is irate. Savage hops it off the ground, here comes Steele. Two-handed throat toss by Steele, Savage is rammed off the top turnbuckle. Steele begins calling to the back, what could this be? Savage takes control, Steele is yanked down. Knee drop by Savage, scoop slam by Savage. It’s Ricky The Dragon Steamboat. Steele yanks Savage off the top rope, Savage has been tossed to the floor. Steele steals Miss Elizabeth.

Savage has no clue, Savage enters the ring. Savage cannot do a thing because standing in his way is Ricky Steamboat. Savage had crushed the larynx of Steamboat in November of 1986 using the ringbell. The Dragon has stopped Savage who wants no part of The Dragon. Steele is back, Savage is rammed off the turnbuckle. Steele rips at the turnbuckle, scoop slam by Steele. Savage has been blinded, Steele rips at another turnbuckle. Savage rams Steele into the ringpost, elbows and middle rope choke from Savage. Steele fires back at Savage, biting from Steele.

Clothesline to the floor by Savage, Steele has some object. Surely a disqualification? The referee is searching for the object, Steele shoves down the referee. Savage has a ring-bell, Steele has been waffled in the back of the head and Savage gets away with the win. Savage grabs the ring-bell, planning to do what he did to Steamboat but Steamboat makes the save.

Great angles coming out of this feud, first you have The King Kong tendencies of Steele who just wants to see Elizabeth treated properly, Savage being the ultimate dick who mistreats her and just wants to hold his championship. In the middle of the match, Steamboat returns and the fans want to see Steamboat murder Savage so bad.

Winner: Randy Savage over George Steele via Ring-Bell To The Back Of The Head!

Massive right hand by JYD, Race is climbing the top rope, elbow to the back of the head of JYD. Elbow drops, Heenan gets in too. We have a DQ, Race and Heenan batter Junkyard Dog.

More of an angle than a match, Junkyard Dog is super popular and the feud will come to an end soon enough but this is good stuff. Sidenote: Heenan’s face when JYD strutted around in the robe and crown may have made my day, fantastic from the best of all-time.

Winner: Junkyard Dog over Harley Race via DQ!

Piper throws his kilt on Adonis, right hands and hiptoss from Piper. Huge knee lift, Adonis is all tied up in the ropes. Boot from Piper, Piper bites the head of Adonis. Adonis is in a bad, bad way.

Huge rights from Piper, Adonis is smacked off the mat. On the floor, the referee is dealing with Jimmy Hart which leads to Adonis spraying Piper in the eyes with his perfume spray gun thing. Piper is blinded and gets counted out.

I understand that they have to get heat on Adonis for the Wrestlemania match but Piper wandering around aimlessly while he gets counted out was a bit stupid, not my type of thing at all.

Winner: Adrian Adonis over Roddy Piper via Count-Out!

Jimmy Jack Funk vs Blackjack Mulligan

Mulligan clotheslines Funk to the floor, we are on the outside. Funk eats a backdrop to the floor, Funk rakes the eyes but he cannot get the scoop slam. Mulligan scoop slams Funk, Mulligan nails a massive clothesline. Funk begs for mercy, Mulligan nails a spinning reverse elbow for the win. DUD!

Winner: Blackjack Mulligan over Jimmy Jack Funk via Reverse Elbow!

Another really good edition of Saturday Night’s Main Event, Hogan vs Orndorff delivered in bucketloads, you had everything when it came to the match. The crowd were in a frenzy, Hogan and Orndorff tore the house down with some awesome wrestling spots. The return of The Dragon, big things on the horizon between Steamboat and Savage, loved the feud between Adonis and Piper despite the weak finish on the show, I felt Adonis could have blinded Piper in the ring instead of Piper just getting counted out while still being on his feet, surely Piper could feel where the ring was? That’s nit-picking though, this was a good show, fun and enjoyable. Thanks for reading and remember: There’s always another night!
