Vince and Bruno welcome us to the show and run down the matches.

Tag Team Champions The British Bulldogs (w/ Capt. Lou Albano) vs. Mike Sharpe & the Gladiator :
Mike Sharpe has brought to the ring his very own “Canada’s Greatest Athlete” sign. Out come the Bulldogs with Albano, who is taking his pants off. Sharpe starts off with Davey Boy Smith. They lock up and Sharpe puts on a headlock and they crisscross!! Smith ducks his head, Sharpe leap frogs him, and goes for a dropkick but Smith moves, and hits an atomic drop, locks on an arm bar and tags Dynamite Kid in. Kid to the arm also and tags Smith who comes of the top with an axe handle to the arm and back to the arm bar. Sharpe tags Gladiator in and he gets arm bared. The Dream Team cuts a promo up in the corner saying they will regain the titles. Dynamite gets tagged back in and headbutts Gladiator gives him a snap suplex and tags out. Smith in with a snap mare and he tries to take the mask off Gladiator. Gladiator gets away and tags out. Sharpe goes to the eyes Smith ducks a clothesline and gets crossbodied by Smith for a two. Tag back to Gladiator who comes in and gets hit with the running powerslam for the 3 count in 3.26. For some reason Vince can’t believe it. Dynamite looks kind of mad, I’m assuming it’s because he didn’t get to beat the crap out of someone.
