Ricky Morton mentions that they will have a surprise for Jim Cornette and The Heavenly Bodies. He wants everyone to tune in for this big surprise.

SHOW THOUGHTS: Okay show. The first two matches were kept pretty short. The main event was okay with The Heavenly Bodies successfully defending their titles. The big news from this episode was yet another mystery wrestler (The Night Stalker) attacked Brian Lee and the mystery man who placed the bounty on Lee is known as “The Master”. The Ronnie Garvin vs. Paul Orndorff feud is kind of amusing especially Orndorff being pretty great in his promo showing a lot of outrage over his robe getting cut in half and being stolen by Garvin. Overall still just an okay show.
