Match #1
"Power & Glory"
(Hercules & Paul Roma)
w/Slick
def. "The Rockers"
(Marty Jannetty & Shawn Michaels)
via Pinfall (6:00)
Notes: Roma pinned Jannetty. Hercules took out Michaels' knee with his chain before the match. Michaels never got into the ring, so Jannetty went it alone.

Match #2 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
The Texas Tornado
Challenger
def. Mr. Perfect
Champion
w/Bobby Heenan
via Pinfall (5:13)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- What the hell. The Texas Tornado? What were they thinking? I can't believe Perfect dropped the title to him.

Match #3
Sensational Queen Sherri def. Sapphire via Forfeit (0:00)
Notes: Sherri called out Sapphire, but she never came out to the ring. The referee awarded the match to Sherri via forfeit.

Match #4
The Warlord
w/Slick
def. Tito Santana via Pinfall (5:28)
Notes: Kind of an uneventful match. Not much of a rivalry here. This just continued Tito's post-Strike Force run where he just jobbed to others.

Match #5 - WWF Tag Team Championship - 2-out-of-3 Falls
"The Hart Foundation"
(Bret Hart & Jim Neidhart)
Challengers
def. "Demolition"
(Smash & Crush)
Champions
via 2-1 (15:48)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Crush pinned Hart at 6:19 to win the first fall. Crush was disqualified at 10:36 for holding the referee from making a count. Hart pinned Crush at 15:48 to win. There were brief stops between falls--the bell rang to end and start each fall. A fantastic match all the way. Demolition cheated by having Ax come down and hide under the ring. He could then swap with Smash at any time. The Legion of Doom came out and pulled out Ax, and Smash left the ring to go after them, leaving Crush all alone. Hart was able to pin him for the victory.

Match #6
Jake "The Snake" Roberts
w/Damien
def. Bad News Brown via DQ (4:46)
Notes: Big Boss Man was the guest referee. Boss Man disqualified Bad News for using a steel chair on Roberts. He warned him once, then DQed him. Bad News attacked Boss Man, but Jake brought out Damien and scared him off.

BROTHER LOVE SHOW: Brother Love interviewed the recently-returned Sgt. Slaughter!

Match #7
"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan &
Nikolai Volkoff
def. "The Orient Express"
(Sato & Tanaka)
w/Mr. Fuji
via Pinfall (3:03)
Notes: Before the match, Duggan and Volkoff sang "God Bless America" to the crowd. Duggan stank up the place while Volkoff, while not great, was leaps and bounds better than Duggan. Duggan, in the words of Honky Tonk Man, "couldn't carry a tune if it had handles on it." Duggan pinned Tanaka.

Match #8
"Macho King" Randy Savage
w/Sensational Queen Sherri
def. "American Dream" Dusty Rhodes via Pinfall (2:14)
Notes: Before the match, Ted DiBiase revealed that he was Sapphire's mysterious benefactor, and that Sapphire was indeed bought off by him. Sapphire came out in a fur coat holding a bag of money. Rhodes was thrown off this game, and Macho quickly disposed of him.

Match #9
Hulk Hogan
w/Big Boss Man
def. Earthquake
w/Dino Bravo, Jimmy Hart
via Countout (13:00)
Notes: Jimmy Hart was aiming for Hogan, but hit Earthquake with his megaphone instead. Hogan then put Earthquake through a table and got into the ring to win.

Match #10 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship - Steel Cage Match
The Ultimate Warrior
Champion
def. "Ravishing" Rick Rude
Challenger
w/Bobby Heenan
(10:02)
Notes: Ravishing looked focused and primed before the match, but in the end, that moron Ulitmate Warrior was able to escape the cage.
