Vince McMahon and Jesse Ventura call the action and they are still in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan host this evening’s show. Monsoon rails against Heenan telling viewers at the end of last week’s show that he was the real host of the program, all while Monsoon was trying to get an update on Hulk Hogan’s condition. Heenan says he does not care about Hogan anymore because he is not the WWF Champion, so since Hogan no longer has something Heenan wants he cares nothing about his condition.
Vince McMahon and Jesse Ventura handle commentary, wrapping up a long television taping in Austin, Texas.
Jake Roberts’ squash from Prime Time Wrestling is shown.
Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan are in the booth, still broadcasting from San Antonio, Texas. In a funny opening bit, Heenan thinks Monsoon is talking about Tito Santana when Monsoon references former Mexican general Santa Anna.
Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan are in the studio for tonight’s show.
It’s time for more Dream Matches! Some of which are unironically good! We start off with one of the most infamous combinations of poor workers in history, and go from there.
Note: I skip YouTube links for the WWF-owned stuff, since I believe it demonetizes the blog.
EL GIGANTE vs. NAILZ:
(New Japan Pro Wrestling, 1994 G-1 Climax)
* Wearing black shorts and with a curly mullet, the 7’7″ Jorge Gonzalez was given a “Freak Show” match or two in New Japan, and here his opponent is a real shocker- NAILZ, fresh from being fired by the WWF for attacking Vince McMahon in a dispute over money (told hilariously here by Bret Hart). This is, quite literally, the worst match I can imagine putting together- Nailz was an absolutely horrendous worker whose offense consisted of choking with one hand and choking with two, and he’s up against probably the worst professionally-trained wrestler in the world. A guy as big as Nailz not even coming up to a guy’s collarbone is a pretty astounding sight, I will admit.
