Match 2: Boris Zhukov versus Corporal Kirschner
Summary: While the Orlando faithful showed their support for Kirschner through patriotism, this match didn’t stink up the amusement park as much as I thought it would.

Match 5: “Cowboy” Bob Orton (w/ John Tolos) versus Bam Bam Bigelow
Summary: Neither wrestler left his feet as both are wont to do so. I certainly hope these guys have a rematch that’s more fluid than this one.
Pardon me for a moment, please.
After the match, Orton drags Bigelow down to the ground so that Tolos could give Bigelow the business. How dastardly! Orton then grabs a chair and WAFFLES Bigelow in the back with it. While Bigelow blocks a second shot, he nails Orton with it. With the chair in Bigelow’s hands, Orton and Tolos scatter.

Conclusion: With two feature matches, this wasn’t a bad episode. Of course, Bigelow-Orton didn’t have a clean finish, but Kirschner toppled the big-headed Russian in what some may call a throwback match. Check it out if you can tolerate Abrams’ pushiness about the PPV, NY shows, and tickets to the PPV.
Next week, the “Wild Thing” wants to get his hands on the Power Twins, but how?
TV Rating: NONE
