WWF Intercontinental Championship

Randy Savage© vs. Jake Roberts


Randy Savage started this match by stalling, avoiding Roberts at all costs. When the two finally locked up, it was all Roberts until Savage got a thumb to The Snake's eye.


Savage in control, he worked over Roberts' right arm, hoping to avoid the dreaded 'DDT'. With Roberts lying prone on the ground, Savage made the mistake of going up top instead of staying on the attack. Macho Man leaped off, the elbow primed to strike, but Roberts moved at the last second.


Both men to their feet, Roberts ducks a Savage clothesline, hits a boot to the gut and grabs Savage, readying the DDT. Randy fights him off, pushing him against the ropes. Savage grabs the ref to avoid Roberts on the rebound. Roberts points at Savage, telling him to stop being a coward, when suddenly The Honky Tonk man runs down and dives in the ring.


Honky Tonk Man hits Roberts with a low blow from behind and escapes out of the ring before the ref turns around. Savage rolls Roberts up, even grabbing the tights for the 3 count.


Winner: Randy Savage @ 11:10

Bulldog tries to enter but the ref cuts him off.


The Hart Foundation double-team Dynamite in the corner as Bulldog argues with the ref. Neidhart goes to the apron as Bret stays in, no tag. The ref turns as Hart locks Dynamite in the front-facelock on the mat. Hart, in complete control, smiles, taunting the crowd. Dynamite starts moving around, trying to escape, Bulldog pounds on the turnbuckle, trying to get the crowd into it.


Dynamite fights to his feet, the crowd completely behind him. He drills Hart with a couple of elbows to the midsection. Dynamite hits the ropes but he's tripped by Jimmy Hart from the outside.
