BB: Bruno Sammartino, book this match so we can find out who best represents this title! Now for you Blassie, up to your old tricks of finding a new client to beat me so you can get your hands on MY title......

Great back and forth match between Morales and Savage, with Savage winning after the flying elbow off the top rope to pin Morales for the win

Shiek & Blassie chasing Backlund's title is textbook WWF.

The IC title tournament is shaping up nicely with Steele vs Kamala & Henning vs Savage. I'm calling the winner of Savage/Henning to take the title.

Good start.

I know it won't be the best workrate match but I'd love to see Neidhart/Barbarian.

Now Martel/Johnson on the other hand spells workrate.

Neidhart and Barbarian are going to be in the tag division after this

I told you already but I am very excited for what you've got going. It is going to be fun to see how this group builds. You've got some good skills and I like the way things are put together. I was hoping to see Sheik Hernandez though :)
