Strike Force & Randy Savage (w/Elizabeth) vs. The Hart Foundation & Honky Tonk Man (w/Jimmy Hart) – Cage Match (Boston Garden 3/5/88)
In order to win, an entire team must escape the cage. This is probably the closest you’ll see the WWF getting to a Wargames concept. All six men start the match – Honky/Tito, Bret/Martel, and Neidhart/Savage. Savage stops HTM from a cage climb while on the other side of the ring, Martel pulls Bret back down to the ring. Tito keeps Anvil from crawling out the door and slides out of the cage door to make it 3-on-2. Anvil jumps out onto Santana to even the sides. Bret and HTM control in the ring for a while. Martel reverses a whip into the cage and sends Bret face-first into the steel. Bret still manages to stop Martel from escaping. Martel and Savage send Bret and HTM into each other and then they try to climb out. Martel gets away from Bret, but Honky Tonk pulls Savage back into the cage. For those of you that haven’t been keeping up, that leaves Savage all alone with Bret and Honky. They have their way with him. Bret ~ “Piece of cake!” Bret walks out the cage door while HTM continues to dominate. He tries to walk too, but Savage grabs him by the tights and sends him into the cage. HTM tries to get out quickly, but Savage pulls him back in by his hair and kicks him up in the corner of the cage until HTM falls and crotches himself – allowing Savage to climb over the cage wall and reach the floor to win the match. (8:20) As interesting as this looks, it was wayyy too short and why no blood? Other than that, it was fine with me. **˝
