  • The Ultimate Warrior defeated Super Ninja (w/Mr. Fuji) to retain the WWF Intercontinental Championship
    • Warrior defeated Super Ninja (Rip Oliver with the gorilla press slam & splash combo.)

    • Hercules defeated Virgil with a powerslam.
  • WWF Champion Randy Savage (w/Miss Elizabeth) fought André the Giant (w/Bobby Heenan) to a double disqualification
    • The match ended when Jake Roberts came ringside and scared Heenan into the ring. Savage retained the title.
    • At around the 5-minute mark, Roberts came ringside with his snake Damien, and put the bag underneath the ring before being told to go backstage by the referee; once Heenan eventually found the bag, André instructed him to take it to the back, which is what Heenan was attempting to do until Roberts returned.
    • After the match, Savage tossed Heenan into André, causing him to fall backwards and have his arms entangled in the ropes; moments later, Savage threw Heenan to the floor, and Jake entered the ring with Damien; André was able to free himself from the ropes and run away before Roberts had a chance to assault him with Damien.
  • Jim Duggan defeated Boris Zuhkov in a Flag Match
    • Duggan defeated Zuhkov with the running clothesline.
  • The Fabulous Rougeaus (Jacques Rougeau & Raymond Rougeau) (w/ Jimmy Hart) defeated The Young Stallions (Paul Roma & Jim Powers)
    • Jacques defeated Roma with a sit-down splash off the top rope.
  • Also: The Brother Love Show, with special guest Hulk Hogan, to discuss his current feud with The Big Boss Man. Hogan, fed up with Love's verbal abuse, handcuffed the wannabe-preacher to the top rope and clotheslined him out of the ring.
