*****

-Ross and Missy Hyatt welcome the home audience. Main Event is going to take a special look at the situation surrounding the United States Championship…later.

Owen Hart defeated Keith Stark via pinfall with a twisting flying crossbody (2:40)

The Fabulous Freebirds (Michael “P.S.” Hayes & Jimmy “Jam” Garvin) [w/ Big Daddy Dink] defeated Reno Riggins & “Powerhouse” Tim Parker when Hayes pinned Parker with the DDT (3:22)

-FEUD RECAP: Bobby Eaton/The Z-Man vs. The York Foundation

“The Computerized Man” Terrance Taylor [w/ Alexanda York & Mr. Hughes] defeated “The Z-Man” Tom Zenk via pinfall (4:05)

  • Taylor picks up the win thanks to interference from Hughes. Zenk got his foot on the bottom rope but the ref didn’t notice and Taylor made sure to push it off the ropes after the bell was run to avoid any result reversals.

Sting & El Gigante defeated Jim Boss & Jeff Sword when Gigante pinned Sword with the Claw (1:58)

-JOINED IN PROGRESS: Lex Luger defeats “Dangerous” Dan Spivey to retain the WCW UNITED STATES HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP (WrestleWar ’91 – 2.24.91)

-CLIP: Nikita Koloff attacks Lex Luger (WrestleWar ’91 – 2.24.91)

Paul E. Dangerously joins Ross and Hyatt, and says he’s going to announce a special surprise at the end of the show. He’s gone after the commercial break.

-VIGNETTE: Nikita Koloff trains in his dungeon

-PROMO: Lex Luger throws shade at Nikita Koloff. What a decent build to a match MOST OF US WILL NEVER F*CKING SEE.

“The Total Package” Lex Luger defeated “Jumpin” Joey Maggs via submission with the Torture Rack (2:22)

-CLIP: Arn Anderson and Barry Windham beat on Brian Pillman until The Steiner Brothers make the save (Main Event – 3.24.91). The rematch between Pillman and Windham happens next week.

-Dangerously is back and announces that he will be showing off a special montage of Missy Hyatt’s greatest hits and even lets her hold his giant 90s phone to end the show. I believe him. He seems sincere. I am a bad judge of character.
