WWF Prime Time Wrestling May 18, 1987 | Friday Evening’s Undercard Episode 11

May 24, 2019

The flagship show of Friday Evening's Undercard is back after a one week absence, covering the May 18, 1987 episode of WWF Prime Time Wrestling. With:

-Bobby Heenan cutting a promo on Ken Patera where he says that Ken Patera should be in a body cast.

-A short match between Johnny V and Brutus Beefcake where Heenan and Monsoon eloquently discuss the difference between a choke hold and a sleeper.

-A match between Iron Mike Sharpe and Sivi Afi where Sharpe is billed as Canada's Greatest Athlete. The match went just shy of 10 minutes, felt like an eternity.

-We get a replay of the Can-Am Connection vs Sheik and Volkoff match from the most recent Saturday Night's Main event.

-Frenchy Martin faces off against Nick Kiniski...to answer a question from the show, Nick Kiniski is, in fact, the son of the famous Gene Kiniski.

-Gene Okerlund interviews Ricky Steamboat...commentary on the interview is extensive.

-We see a six-man tag match featuring the British Bulldogs and Tito Santana.

-Ken Patera vs Hercules version 2.0, recorded the day after their first match which was so bad it couldn't be aired.

-Demolition vs the Islanders, Demolition is being put over very strong on Prime Time, this is one of the few really progressing stories on the show.

-Okerlund interviews the Honky Tonk Man

-Ricky Steamboat vs Butch Reed closes the show.

Overall, a pretty good show, not the best we've seen, but hardly the worst. We'll be back next week. Hopefully we can get a show out on the Tom McGee special recently released on the WWE Network and a few other things that we have simmering. Thanks for listening.

On this episode, John works with Gerard from the Through the Table wrestling podcast to talk about the Ohio Valley Wrestling Class of 2002. This is almost certainly the best class of developmental wrestling talent ever produced by the WWE, including talents like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and several others. We talk about, briefly, the history of Ohio Valley Wrestling, how the wrestlers were trained, and then look at whether or not such a class could come out again.
