Wrestlemania VI is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2012/11/wwf-wrestlemania-vi-review.html
Welcome back to my ongoing coverage of Superstars 1990. I've been reviewing so much stuff weekly that this got put on the backburner for a while.
This is the first show after Wrestlemania VI. Wrestlemania VI was a big turning point for the company with the Hulkamania Era over and the Ultimate Warrior Era beginning...or so we thought.
Dusty Rhodes vs Don Stevens
Riki Ataki vs The Warlord
Since the Warlord came out with Slick, he came out to Jive Soul Bro. Seeing the Warlord come out to that was interesting.
|"He is so powerful, he doesn't even know how powerful he is." - Lord Alfred Hayes on The Warlord|
|"Look at this massive chest. Look at those massive biceps. And guess what? I own it all." - Slick|
|"The party's over!" - Slick|
I did like his suplex into the ring but that's about it.
We got a promo from Rick Rude during a workout:
|"Well, well, well a new champion. I'll bet you're happy and you have the right to be happy, Ultimate Warrior." - Rick Rude|
|"Well, I have the right to be happy too because in your illustrious career Warrior, there's only been one man to beat you for a title. And I'm the one whose done it Warrior." - Rick Rude|
|"Now I issue a public challenge to you. A challenge that cannot be denied. A challenge that you must accept." - Rick Rude|
|"I have pushed myself beyond the outer limits, beyond Parts Unknown. When we step into the ropes and look into each others eyes, there will be no doubt who the ultimate athlete is." - Rick Rude|
|"It's not an equalizer McMahon, it's a weapon." - Jesse Ventura on Hacksaw's 2x4|
"In the new WWF magazine, they have a personality profile on Hacksaw Jim Duggan. I could have done it in 2-3 lines, they used 2-3 pages!" - Jesse Ventura
|"What would you have said in those 2-3 lines?" - Vince|
"Not much. Ha-Ha." - Jesse
|"I got him baby, I got him." - Duggan|
"I'd say the turnbuckle got him." - Jesse
Bad News Brown vs Terry Zeller
|"You sit down before I knock you out." - Bad News Brown|
|"Where's Piper at, huh?" - Brown|
The Brother Love Show with The Bushwhackers
|"My guests this week are slobs." - Brother Love|
"Are you appearing this week McMahon?" - Jesse
|"And remember Brother Love, nobody bushwhacks the Bushwhackers!" - Butch|
Dino Bravo vs Stefan DeLeon
Time for my least favorite wrestler ever, Dino Bravo.
Dino Bravo got the win with a decent looking side slam. The finish wasn't bad and I did like Bravo's backdrop suplex on DeLeon. That looked like it hurt.
|I think this kid sums up my thoughts on Dino Bravo quite nicely.|
|"We want out belts back." - Bret Hart to Demolition|
Overall thoughts: This was all squash and nothing of note really happened here. Skip it.
