WWF Wrestling Challenge – September 6th, 1992

September 6, 1992

From the Nashville Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan

 

SummerSlam highlights.

 

Back to the hosts as Gorilla teases Heenan over the plan for Flair failing but Heenan insists that they are not finished.

 

Big Bossman vs. Doug Somers

Bossman boots Somers in the face then hammers away. Bossman stays in control before sending Somers to the mat as the announcers talk about the future Bossman/Nailz match. Gorilla then tells Heenan that Flair & Perfect are upset as Bossman hits a sidewalk slam for the win (2:24).

Thoughts: More hype for the Bossman/Nailz program as Gorilla starts up with Heenan about Perfect.

 

Repo Man vs. Major Yates

The announcers talk about “Body Stars” and how they have a special on stuntmen. Repo Man beats on Yates as Gorilla teases Heenan about getting fired by Flair. Repo Man is shown in an insert promo laughing about no one knowing what he will do next and that he’ll repossess your career. Repo Man stays in control then uses a single leg crab for the win (1:58).

Thoughts:A continuation of Gorilla stirring up stuff with Heenan. They continue to push the Repo Man gimmick but as a lower card act.

 

Natural Disasters vs. Kevin Neal & Craig Brown

Heenan wonders why Flair would be mad at him as he just manages his money and does not book his matches. Money Inc. are shown huddling in an insert promo before DiBiase said they’ve had to wait too long for a title rematch. The Disasters are sitting on top of both men then Neal is put away after a pair of splashes (1:51). The Disasters head up the aisle but see Money Inc. on the screen holding a steel chair and a briefcase waiting for them backstage. The Disasters charge backstage but several officials separate the teams.

Thoughts: Much like how Vince messed with Perfect on Superstars, Gorilla did the same to Heenan here as he tried to push a rift between Heenan, Perfect and Flair. They also utilized the big screen as part of the angle as the Disasters could see Money Inc. waiting backstage to attack them and foiled the plan. Kind of made Money Inc. look like dopes to be honest.

 

Jeff Daniels vs. Papa Shango

Heenan believes that Shango put a curse on Bret Hart and that is why Bret lost at SummerSlam. Shango beats on Daniels in the corner as the announcers talk about Bret vs. Bulldog being a great match but Heenan says when Shango does not like someone then things happen to them. Shango continues to beat on Daniels as Gorilla teases Heenan about both Perfect & Flair being unhappy but Heenan says they have a Plan B. Shango stays in control then hits a reverse shoulderbreaker for the win (2:52).

Thoughts: Looks like a Bret/Shango feud is now going to happen since SummerSlam is now over with the idea that Shango put on yet another curse to mess with someone. Shows you how limited Shango was as this is the only premise used for his feuds.
An ad to join the WWF Fan Club is shown.

 

Gene Okerlund welcomes Razor Ramon to the interview platform. Okerlund says the word on the street is that Razor does not care for Savage. Razor says he is the only man “oozing machismo” and that Savage is hollow inside then refers to the fans as “estupidos” before telling Savage the first time they meet he will give Savage lessons in machismo. Good stuff from Razor here.

 

Louie Spicolli vs. El Matador

Heenan is pissed now that Perfect might be blaming him for Plan A failing before he goes back to yelling at Gorilla for stirring things up. El Matador takes control early and stays in charge before the El Peso de Muerte gets the win (1:55).

Thoughts: Matador is slowly being phased out of the company as the focus again was on this Plan B.

 

We get an ad for the “WWF Superstars 1993” calendar. Hulk Hogan is on the cover as Gorilla says Flair, Perfect, and Heenan are not part of the calendar.

 

Money Inc. w/ Jimmy Hart vs. Ben Jordan & Red Tyler

Money Inc. work over Tyler to start. We hear from the Disasters in an insert corner calling Money Inc. out for being cowards. Jordan tags in and he gets his ass kicked then IRS hits the Write Off clothesline for the win (1:39).

Thoughts: Looks like the Money Inc./Disasters feud will continue. They really did not have much else to do with the current state of the Tag Division.

 

Okerlund is shown selling a new video series with the first being the “Best of WrestleMania” for $4.95 then we see the small print at the end saying its $19.95 for the other videos that arrive every 4-6 weeks. Its like a wrestling version of Columbia House and BMG.

 

Next week in action are Kamala, High Energy, Nailz, The Bushwhackers, and Razor Ramon.

 

Final Thoughts: Pretty much the same as Superstars where the focus was on this Plan B and it had Razor calling out Savage as this continues to be the current focus of the show.
