2 Cold Scorpio & Marcus Bagwell vs. Tony Vincent & Paul Lee

The show opens with Scorpio & Bagwell making their way down to the ring dancing with fans, including having some kids dance in the ring with them. This match was a quick paced one, highlighting the fact that Scorpio and Bagwell are climbing the ranks towards a title shot against The Hollywood Blondes.

Ron Simmons & Van Hammer vs. Tex Slazenger & Shanghai Peirce

Tex & Van Hammer start the match, and it’s poor. I say this a lot. I wish I didn’t. But it is poor.

Orndorff leaves the ring and goes over to Tony & Jesse and he’s tired of this Paula nonsense. He says he’s refusing to wrestle, but Grizzly Smith comes out and tells Paul to get back into the ring or face a fine. Continue reading WCW Saturday Night – April 10, 1993

The show opens with Van Hammer (I think), driving along on a motorcycle. He catches up to a limo, and the window rolls slowly down to reveal Ric Flair with about 300 women. He says everyone is on their way to Saturday Night! Wooooooo! Continue reading WCW Saturday Night – April 3, 1993
