The Summerslam '92 Program gets hawked to start. Hey, I had that! During all this, they cut to a crying Diana Smith saying Bret is treating her like the enemy and she doesn't believe Bret and Davey Boy will ever be friends again. We also get comments from Bret and Bulldog. We also get hype for Natural Disasters/Beverly Brothers, with John Tenta on fire! There's also hype for Undertaker/Kamala and Michaels/Martel.

For such a big guy that didn't need to talk at all, Tenta was a decent promo guy.

Gene's dig at Sherri about the Republican National Convention was awesome. And I guess Diana was trying to get a job at One Life to Live with that performance.

Fun segment. I thought Diana was a bit over the top.

Nice hype job for Summerslam with various interviews. Diana was a bit too much. Beverly Brothers talk about being privileged. They are the one percent. Not sure how they got a tag title shot though.

Gene rundowns the card, Diana with emotional comments going overboard with the the tears and crazy. Then Bret & Davey with promos. They also preview the Beverlys vs. Disasters, Taker vs. Kamala and HBK vs. Model.

PPV rundowns with Gene are always a welcomed segment on any Yearbook. Diana melodramatically talks about the growing resentment between Davey Boy and Bret--I'd hate to see what she was like when Owen turned. Sherri drops a bubbly promo announcing the special "no hitting in the face" stipulation for Shawn vs. Martel.

I guess we've heard enough from Savage, Warrior, Flair and Curt for a while.

 

I see that Kamala's going by "Ugandan Giant" again now that Andre's gone. You could barely hear Bruno over his awful wailing. During his first run he didn't do it much, so when he did it was scary. Now it's just ear-splittingly annoying. Give that animal a tranquilizer, Kim Chee!

 

Nice to know that Bloom finally let Enos talk a little bit. How is being privileged/spoiled enough of a gimmick to get someone a tag team tile match? I don't remember these guys being too effective as the Beverlys. It was nice to see Lanny, even if he didn't say a lot, As for the Disasters, they're both really good here, and it's nice to hear Phoon talk without too many silly references to boats or that ridiculous honk. 

 

I wish Martel-Michaels had made the set just so I could see what kind of a match can possibly be built around two guys who are trying not to hit each other in the face. Sherri looked witchy and sounded loopy. Anyone know what Gene meant with his crack about the Republican National Convention?

 

Diana was actually better than Bret or Davey here, over-the-top or not. If all we were going to get was the standard promo from these guys, why bring up that they're brothers-in-law? In other words, they should have sold the family feud angle more instead of letting a novice like Diana do it. Either that or put the family stuff in the background and emphasize Davey the hometown hero, although that may have turned Bret full-fledged heel, at least until SummerSlam.

 

I guess Neidhart was on the outs for some reason, because this is the only Hart family feud angle that he wasn't a major part of.
