Brother Love: ‘The longest WWF Intercontinental Championship reign in the history of the World Wrestling Federation sadly ended at SummerSlam! The Honky Tonk Man has already made his mark in the history books of the WWF, but his successor, who took two attempts to take that title, one at WrestleMania, and then this one at SummerSlam, is Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake!’ Bruti joins him on the set, with the WWF Intercontinental Championship belt around his waist. ‘Well, well, well, you’re pretty proud of yourself, aren’t you, Beefcake?’ Bruti: ‘Very proud, Brother Love! Because the Honky Tonk Man not only set a record for the longest reign in the history of this prestigious WWF Intercontinental Championship, but also set another record: that of the most cowardly defences of a title ever witnessed here in the World Wrestling Federation! That’s right! He ran away time and again, got himself counted out, got himself disqualified, hit his opponents with his guitar…and I know, because too many times I was subjected to his treachery and cowardice! And at WrestleMania, I already beat him, but by disqualification on that occasion. The so-called champion failed to defeat the challenger; he failed to turn away my challenge! So I stayed my ground, I beat my former partner Greg “The Hammer” Valentine to prove I wasn’t going anywhere and while all the other stars jockeyed for position, while all the best wrestlers here in the World Wrestling Federation attempted to stake their claim to contention for this prized possession, the prestigious WWF Intercontinental Championship belt, I made sure there was no doubt that I was still the number one contender to the title. And at SummerSlam, the heat was on, and I went in there, stopped Honky from running away, stopped him from taking his guitar, and I slapped on my hold and it was indeed Goodnight Irene! And it was all over for him! The only comfort he can take is that the little pipsqueak who used to handle my contract one time, “Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, was there to pull Honky from the ring to safety before my scissors came into play and I took a lock of two of his slicked-back quiff! He might still have that hairdo – or, as I like to call it, a hairdon’t – but he doesn’t have this, the WWF Intercontinental Championship! It’s mine now, and the World Wrestling Federation fans can breathe a sigh of relief!’ Brother Love: ‘But can you, Brutus? Can you rest easy, knowing “Ravishing” Rick Rude is now the number one contender to that belt of yours?’ Bruti: ‘A champion is only as worthy as the challengers he faces and defeats, Brother Love! Rude beat Jake “The Snake,” no less, to become number one contender, but I look at his hair and I can’t help but think it needs a cut! So he has to ask himself if it’s worth losing his locks for, and when he’s lost those, will he still be ravishing then? Or will his supposed admirers instead be looking to another bow-tied wrestler in the Beefcake? Cutting and strutting, a cut above the rest as the WWF Intercontinental Champion!’

One Man Gang, with Big Boss Man and Slick, wins his match. Don Muraco confronts him, taking the microphone and pointing out that he ended “Superstar” Billy Graham’s career, an act so terrible it ruined his pre-existing probation period and got him sent into the hands of the law – unfortunately, it was the Big Boss Man’s law. He says this means he has unfinished business with One Man Gang.

Brother Love: ‘I love you! And I mean that straight from the heart. But speaking of hearts, there are two Harts who have stolen the name created by Jimmy Hart many years ago! They are my guests, Bret “Hit Man” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart!’ The two walk onto the set, not happy at their introduction. Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart: ‘Brother Love, you can call us the Hart Foundation! Because that’s who we are!’ Brother Love: ‘No, no, no, no! “Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart named the tag team after himself, and since you two ingrates got rid of his services, you have to forfeit the name! But according to Jimmy himself, you can do it the easy way or the hard way. Because, with help from the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, he has been taking legal action against you! Yet now, with nothing but a Stu Hart family lawyer, still you try to fight him through the courts. Well, let me tell you, my brothers, I know from personal experience that the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase has a lot of money and that means a lot of power. You won’t beat Jimmy in the courts! But he, out of the goodness of his heart, has graciously given you the opportunity to win the rights to your name, not in the courts, but in the ring! That’s right! He said that he can instead have his lawyers sign an agreement with WWF President Jack Tunney, that if the Fabulous Rougeaus beat you, then you lose the rights to the name of the Hart Foundation, end of story, no questions asked, issue over. And if you win, you win the rights. So now, you have to ask yourselves: Do you want to do this the easy way or the hard way?’ Bret “Hit Man” Hart: ‘Brother Love, as far as we’re concerned, the courts is definitely the hard way. But in the ring? Well, all we’ve ever known is grappling! And we do our grappling in the ring, not grappling with legalities. So we agree to that match, with that stipulation! And we will win, and win our rights to be forever known as…the Hart Foundation!’

Update with Sean Mooney looks at the history of WWF Saturday Night’s Main Event so far, with historic moments including Hulk Hogan’s first-ever loss in the World Wrestling Federation, when the referee’s evil twin counted his shoulder despite them not being on the mat, leaving Andre the Giant with the WWF World Championship, albeit for a grand total of thirty seconds.

Brother Love: ‘I love you! But yet still you people fail to give contributions to my segment here every week. That’s why I am grateful towards the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase! Because he is a man who is not only helping to pay “Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart’s legal fees, but who has also contributed many funds to me and my segment that benefits you people and shines light into your lives! Because you know your lives would be even more miserable than they are without it! So don’t be ungrateful. Now, my guest this week knows what it’s like to be ungrateful! Because Bobby “The Brain” Heenan gave up his percentage of this man’s money, in order to give his services to the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase! And what did this man do? He threw it back in his face! He is of course…Hercules!’ Hercules walks onto the set, carrying his chain. Brother Love: ‘Well, well, Hercules. Just as the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase paid good money to have you as his tool of destruction, but now you are no longer in contention for the WWF Intercontinental Championship, you seem to be carrying the tool of your own destruction!’ Hercules: ‘These chains are mine! But Bobby “The Brain” Heenan used them against me. And you’re right, because of that cheating, I am no longer a contender.’ Brother Love: ‘It almost makes me want to cry! Almost. The reason I can’t find any sympathy for you, Hercules, is because you had it all, and you threw it all away! Not only did Bobby “The Brain” Heenan reap the rewards of developing your career, but you, too, could have reaped the rewards throughout your career as the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase’s tool of destruction!’ Hercules: ‘I feel far richer by being my own man, Brother Love. I did not set upon this path to serve only as a tool of destruction for others. I fought for years, making Bobby “The Brain” Heenan richer through the percentages he took from me! Well, no more. I will not serve only to make rich men richer! And you say I had it all? Well, like I said, I’m richer now, because my eyes have been opened, Brother Love. And so I thank Bobby “The Brain” Heenan for liberating me! But now I’m free, I’m also dangerous! And the “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase truly will pay a severe price for that…’

Brother Love: ‘I love you! So touch the screen. Feel the power! The power of love. But some people believe in the powers of pain. And there are two men in the World Wrestling Federation who even go by that name! They are now the number one contenders to the WWF Tag Team Championship, accompanied by the Baron, they are Warlord and Barbarian, the Powers of Pain!’ The three walk onto the set. Brother Love: ‘Well, Baron, you seem to have unleashed something in these two men. They have been unstoppable recently.’ Baron: ‘You speak of love, but you’re right: I believe in the Powers of Pain! That’s what you’re looking at here. Warlord; a man who guarded tyrants until he broke away to choose his own destiny. Barbarian; a man who lived off the land, hunting, eating things that would make a billy goat vomit, just to survive. The Powers of Pain know how to survive. And how appropriate that Survivor Series approaches us once more. And here you are looking at men ready to feast! Men who have been training hard in the hills of Hilo, Hawaii, running across rough terrain with me on their back, taking turns to embrace the pain itself; fold it into themselves, in order to inflict it on their opponents. They are the Powers of Pain! Led by the Baron, the Clawmaster himself.’ Brother Love: ‘But there is another master here in the World Wrestling Federation, and he is the master: Master Fuji! He is the master of the tag team division because he, as a former WWF Tag Team Champion himself, has in the last year alone led Demolition to the titles, and they have dominated that tag team division! They beat Strike Force for the WWF Tag Team Championship on the largest stage of them all, WrestleMania IV, and demolished the British Bulldogs!’ Baron: ‘What you don’t understand, Brother Love, is the fact that I brought the Powers of Pain into the World Wrestling Federation not just to become the WWF Tag Team Champions, but to destroy Demolition! And soon, very soon, we will achieve both of those things, and Fuji will no longer be a master of any kind!’
