It’s time for Piper’s Pit…
Piper is with Bob Orton. His guest is Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff. Orndorff ain’t happy about what happened at WrestleMania. Orton and Orndorff jaw. Orndorff calls him a dunce and tells him to get in the corner. Piper tells Orndorff he can finally rest easy and sit down. Orndorff: “Ladies FIRST.” Piper calls him a loser. Orndorff tells both men to back off as they get close to snapping. Piper says he isn’t a loser — Orndorff lost the match for them. Orndorff says that Piper left him in the ring with Hulk Hogan and Mr. T after the match. Piper says that Orndorff lost his guts. Piper says Orndorff embarrassed everyone. Piper says he’s leaving…then attacks Orndorff. Orndorff blocks and punches Piper and then Orton who comes to help. Orndorff goes for the Piledriver but Orton saves the day. The two men get ready to gang up on Orndorff but Mr. T runs down to rescue him.
Mean Gene has Hulk Hogan. Hogan calls Piper and Orton’s behavior “typical”. Hogan says his match with Orton is gonna be special. What’s Orton gonna do when…blah, blah, blah…
MATCH #2: “Cowboy” Bob Orton (challenger) (w/ “Rowdy” Roddy Piper) vs. Hulk Hogan (champion) (w/ Mr. T) for the WWF Championship
It’s a slugfest to start with Hogan hitting a huge back bodydrop and body slam. Orton moves outside to get some “wisdom” from Piper. Hogan just beats on him when he gets back in the ring with a shoulder into the ring post, then he bites Orton but that’s cool because it’s Hogan. Hogan slams Orton’s arm into the ringpost and whips him into the ropes but Orton hits a FLYING KNEE! IT’S A FLYING KNEE, MICHAEL! Oh…we’re too early for that. Orton hits an Atomic Drop and gets two. Orton starts dropping knees and elbows as Mr. T and Piper jaw outside. Hogan hulks up and drops an elbow. Two count. Hogan climbs on Orton in the corner. Orton counters with a reverse Atomic Drop. Orton goes for a Superplex but Hogan fights out, hits an elbow and legdrop. Piper whacks Hogan, interfering and we’re done.
WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION: Hulk Hogan via DQ
RATING: *. This was your typical Hogan match.
Post-match, Piper and Orton jump Mr. T and surround Hogan but Paul Orndorff suddenly shows up to joing Hogan and T.
Gene’s with The Fabulous Moolah who is sick and tired of Cyndi Lauper. She’s not the first. She heads to the ring. She says she has a decree from the WWF that will ban Cyndi Lauper from ringside.
Gene has Lauper and Richter. Lauper says she will never be banned as a manager.
MATCH #3: The Fabulous Moolah (challenger) vs. Wendi Richter (champion) (w/ Cyndi Lauper) for the WWF Women’s Championship
Finkel reads a decree that’s actually written on ancient papyrus, which is fitting since it’s about as old as Moolah is here. Lauper is banned from ringside. Moolah uses the hair to whip Richter and tosses her from the ring. Richter gets back in the ring and kicks her out. Back in the ring, Moolah gets a Body Drop. Richter comes back with a kick to the chest. Moolah begs off and gets to the ropes. Richter tries to drag her to the center of the ring but Moolah holds the ropes. Richter eventually does but Moolah slaps her and knees her in the face. Richter rolls her up for the win.
WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION: Wendi Richter via small package
RATING: *. Meh…
Post-match, Lauper and Richter dance around the ring like we’re square dancing at a hoedown.
NEXT: JYD is up next!
Gene has JYD who has his mother with him. She says she’s proud of him.
MATCH #4: Pete Doherty vs. Junkyard Dog (w/ His Mom)
JYD immediately attacks Doherty with headbutts and a clothesline. Doherty leaves the ring. JYD goes after him, grabbing him by the hair, as Doherty screams like Taylor Swift after a break-up. Back in the ring, it’s VINTAGE JYD with some headbutts. Doherty escape the ring again and goes top rope but JYD tosses him into the ring. More headbutts and a Powerslam by JYD and we’re done…and nobody cares. Seriously, nobody cheered that.
WINNER: Junkyard Dog
Backstage, Gene is at Cyndi Lauper’s Mother’s Day Party. Iron Sheik is there and he hates Lauper. So does Volkoff…but the punch is great. Volkoff says his Mom’s in Moscow. Blassie’s Mom is there. Albano reads a poem about his Mom. Hogan has his Mom there. Cyndi’s Mom is there and sounds like Kyle’s Mom from South Park. Moolah shows up and stands a biiiiit to close to the nice Mother’s Day cake. She yells at Lauper because she wasn’t invited. Moolah insults Lauper’s Mom, there’s a scuffle and, BAM, there goes the cake.
Vince and Ventura review what we just saw.
OVERALL: **. This was a fun watch. Matches were your usual late-night fare. Still, lots of fun to re-live my childhood.
Er, that’s it.
