What the World Was Watching: WCW Pro – May 6, 1995

WCW Prime did not feature any original bouts so we head into WCW Pro where Gordon Solie, Dusty Rhodes, and Larry Zbyszko are on commentary.

Opening Contest:  Johnny B. Badd (16-3-1) pins Chris Nelson after Dreamland at 2:23:

This encounter may have happened near the end of the tapings as there are a few empty seats and Badd is not displaying his usual enthusiasm during his entrance.  Nelson fails to do down after a headscissors, just standing as Mero falls into the canvas, so Badd lights into him with some punches before hitting Dreamland to win his eleventh straight singles match.

Diamond Dallas Page, the Diamond Doll, and Maxx Muscle continue their shopping spree by looking at some luxury vehicles.  After getting cars for Maxx and the Doll, Page gets himself a $241,000 Lamborghini.

Gene Okerlund provides the Slamboree Control Center segment.  Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and Jimmy Hart discuss how they are happy to get to beat up Ric Flair in the ring and there is no good news for the heels at the pay-per-view.  The fourth inductee into the WCW Hall of Fame is announced as Angelo Poffo.  This induction angered Solie so much that he quit the company.

A video package hypes the Great Muta.

The Nasty Boys (19-1-1) beat El Cubano & The Terrorist when Jerry Sags pins Cubano after the Trip to Nastyville at 4:08:

Since Cubano is teaming with the Terrorist, does that also make him a terrorist due to his aiding and abetting of a national enemy?  Solie tells fans that the main event for Saturday Night will be Randy Savage facing the Butcher in a first round match in the United States Championship Tournament.  Dusty gets excited about the “clubberin” that the Nasties do in the corner and that sets up a Trip to Nastyville to give them their twentieth victory of the year.

An update is provided of action so far in the U.S. title tournament.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan (16-2) pins Jimmy Rogers after a three-point stance clothesline at 3:17:

Duggan moves very slowly, methodically destroying Rogers as he leads the crowd in “USA” chants.  With no storyline, he will probably still stay in C-show purgatory despite his win today.

The Blue Bloods (6-0) defeat Brad Armstrong & Tim Horner (3-4) when Lord Steven Regal pins Horner after Earl Robert Eaton’s Tower of London at 11:42:

The Blue Bloods defeated Armstrong and Horner on the April 8 edition of Worldwide, which marked their first win as a team.  Armstrong wrestles the bulk of the match, doing some good amateur wrestling with Regal before getting mauled by heel double teams.  The Blue Bloods have excellent timing, as one man distracts the referee and the other cheats like crazy.  Horner only gets involved after the hot tag, where he gets his knee chop blocked by Eaton and the Tower of London soon follows behind the referee’s back to let Regal steal a win.  This contest doubled down on Horner being the weak link of his team and it also made the Blue Bloods look like opportunistic killers that would be difficult for any team to stop.  Rating:  **¼

Last Word:  The main event was serviceable in putting over the Blue Bloods as a future tag team title contender but that is all there was to say for this show as the usual talents appeared and went over.
