We get a Clash commercial, and it's interesting that they're hyping Flair/Luger in commercials, not Sting/Black Scorpion. Then we get a replay of the clip of Sid fighting with both the MX and Pillman and Zenk.

What did the Scorpion do to earn a title shot, anyway? Was this ever explained?

They are still building up that the roles have reversed between Flair and Luger. Missy was so annoying in her role.

We had two things that didn't make sense here: Sid's run-in and Missy Hyatt. I'm guessing that they wanted to portray Sid as an out-of-control monster who would go through anyone to get to Sting, but Sting's about to be so wrapped up in the Scorpion that it feels like a waste of an angle, since they aren't going to feud the Horsemen with either Pillman and Zenk or the MX. I wouldn't have minded seeing either Arn or Barry team with Sid against one of those two teams, though.

 

As for Missy, it's amazing how little she contributes to broadcasts as a color person. She was terrible when they tried her in the UWF, and she's just as awful here. Plus, her supposedly winsome smile makes her look like a clueless bubblehead when JR's trying to sell a supposedly serious situation. Once again, I ask: They depushed Nancy Sullivan to accommodate this?

 

The shame of it is, she'd have been a much better addition to the whole Lawler-Dundee/Gilbert-DWB mess in Memphis than either Tessa or Kim, because playing the vixen is the one thing she can do well. I know that Turner could pay her a lot more than Jerry Jarrett, so that's why she probably stayed with WCW, but at some point even she had to realize that whatever professional talent she had was being wasted.

Missy looks like she has broader shoulders than JR. She looks like a total bruiser in that suit, very powerful.
