WWF Wrestling Challenge – September 13th, 1992

September 13, 1992

From the Nashville Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan


We start off the same way we did on Superstars in learning how Ric Flair defeated Randy Savage to become the World Champion once again with help from Razor Ramon.


Razor Ramon vs. Joey Maggs

Razor tells the ring attendant that if something happens to his gold then something will happen to him. Razor beats down Maggs as the announcers talk about Plan B being successful. Razor hits a fallaway slam from the middle rope as Heenan is gloating about Flair’s party. Razor then hits Maggs with a super back suplex before the crucifix powerbomb gets the win (2:28).

Thoughts: Another impressive squash match win for Razor as they build him up for Savage. They also focused on the title change.


The same segments we saw from Superstars that showed Razor interrupting Savage were shown.


Frankie Lancaster & Wendell Cooley vs. The Bushwhackers

A Southeastern Championship Wrestling reunion here with Cooley & Lancaster. We get some back-and-forth from both teams to start. The Bushwhackers take control and march around after clearing the ring. We then hear from The Bushwhackers in an insert promo yell about something then they put Lancaster away after a double gutbuster (1:57).

Thoughts: Just a back drop for the announcers to further discuss the title change.


Nailz defeats Ken Wayne in a match that first aired on the “SummerSlam Spectacular.”


Barry Horowitz vs. Tatanka

The announcers put over Tatanka’s undefeated streak. Tatanka hits a dropkick and a slam but Horowitz uses a thumb in the eye. Tatanka comes back with a back drop then chops Horowitz and dances around. Tatanka runs wild and hits Horowitz with a Samoan Drop for the win (3:04).

Thoughts: Tatanka’s undefeated streak is getting pushed more on TV and he has a match against The Mountie on “Superstars” next week.


Replay of the party for Flair’s title win.


Kamala defeats Burt Stiles in a match that first aired on the “SummerSlam Spectacular.”


Next week in action are Nasty Boys and the Big Bossman plus an interview with Ric Flair.


High Energy vs. Bob Bradley & Louie Spicolli

Owen works over Spicolli as Heenan talks about the party and how Donald Trump even stopped by along with George Michael. High Energy stay in control then we go to break and return as Bradley misses a charge as Heenan talks more about the party. Owen now works over Spicolli then High Energy uses a dropkick/jackknife cover combo for the win (2:30).

Thoughts: Another match designed as a back drop for Heenan to talk about the title change.


Final Thoughts: Another episode of Challenge where all the key segments were rehashed from Superstars and they even aired a few squash matches from the SummerSlam Spectacular as Challenge becomes less important to watch with each passing week.
