Winners and NEW NWA World Tag Team Champions: Williams & Gordy (Williams/Clothesline)

  • EA’s Take: So Williams and Gordy now hold two different tag team titles while The Steiner Brothers, who they will inevitably clash with once again, hold the IWGP titles. I’m not sure how this rivalry is going to play out because Williams and Gordy drop the belts to Rhodes and Windham on an episode of Saturday Night in September. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me why the NWA is being brought back into the fold at all, let alone combining your tag titles in what becomes a relationship lasting barely a year.

EA’s Finisher: Like I said, the show was unfortunately a little dull. Tournaments are fine, but expecting Rhodes and Windham to participate in 3 out of the 7 matches on the card doesn’t give them an opportunity to work out particularly creative matches with anyone. Not a big fan of introducing another set of tag titles as I said, let alone on a roster that doesn’t have tag teams coming out of their ears. So instead, you are going to combine them with your own titles. Huh?!? I know they were playing up the story of being stopped by Williams and Gordy, but your whole card (except for 1 match) was a tag team tournament and The Steiners aren’t in action at all. Meanwhile, you have a big World Title change NOT in the main event spot.

Top Three To Watch
1 – Big Van Vader vs. Sting
2 – Ricky Steamboat & Nikita Koloff vs. Brian Pillman & Jushin Thunder Liger
3 – Rick Rude & Steve Austin vs. Barry Windham & Dustin Rhodes

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for Chapter 10 of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. In this chapter, the three amigos, Dave, PC Tunney, and DJ, reconvene to discuss two more huge events in pro wrestling history: Summer Slam ’91 and Survivor Series ’91. Summer Slam ’91 is generally regarded as one of the better Summer Slams in history, and one of the most face friendly PPVs ever. With three title changes, The Mountie going to an NYC jail for the night, and the marriage of Macho Man and Elizabeth, it is easy to see why it is such a beloved event in WWE history. But dark clouds were rapidly approaching. Here in Chapter 10, the guys delve very deeply, indeed, to look at all this and much more including the emergence of Bret “Hitman” Hart as a true force on the singles scene, the Legion of Doom making history, the backstage drama that led to the exit of The Ultimate Warrior from WWE (the first time), the steroid scandal that caused many to sour on Hulkamania, the reluctant reinstatement of the Macho Man to the active roster, the arrival of Ric Flair in the WWE, the Undertaker winning his first WWE Championship, and so much more. Join us here for another epic installment of The Big Four Project!

**NOTE: This Episode was recorded prior to the events of the WrestleMania XL Kickoff**
