WWF Wrestling Challenge – October 21st, 1990

October 21, 1990

From the IMA Sports Arena in Flint, MI

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan

This week, we will see. Also in action are the Hart Foundation, Rick Rude, Jim Duggan, and The Orient Express

 

“Superfly” Jimmy Snuka vs. Black Bart

Heenan makes fun of Snuka’s robe, saying a hotel now has a missing shower curtain. Bart attacks Snuka from behind then chokes him out against the ropes. Snuka no-sells a pair of turnbuckle smashes and starts chanting as he backs off Bart then fires away. Snuka then hits a slam and heads up top for the Superfly Splash and the win (3:07).

Thoughts: Snuka gets a win here to remind us that he is still with the company.

 

WWF Special Report with Lord Alfred Hayes. Same as “Superstars of Wrestling” where they show us the Ultimate Warrior making Brother Love wear a dress and wig.

 

The Orient Express defeat Reno Riggins & Red Tyler in a match first shown on the 10/15 edition of “Prime Time Wrestling.”

 

Clips from Dusty Rhodes vs. Macho King Randy Savage from “Saturday Night’s Main Event” airs. This is when Ted DiBiase & Virgil attacked Dustin Rhodes at ringside.

 

Hacksaw Jim Duggan defeats Gary Winters. The copy I saw chopped out the body of the match and went to the replay of the finish.

 

Hart Foundation defeat Alan Reynolds & Randy Jackson in a match first shown on the 10/15 edition of “Prime Time Wrestling.”

 

Survivor Series Report airs.

 

Rick Rude defeats Jim Evans in a match first shown on the 10/15 edition of “Prime Time Wrestling.”

 

Final Thoughts: Not much of a show at all, especially if you already watched the rest of the programs mentioned in this review. The focus remains on the Survivor Series.
