SummerSlam ’90

The Orient Express vs. Hacksaw Jim Duggan & Nikolai Volkoff
The Cold War was over so Volkoff and other former Soviets were now pals with the US, whereas “evil” Middle Eastern types were now the bad guys. The Orient Express is as close to evil foreigners that the WWF had, so they get slotted into this patriot act. Which is bad for them because they can’t work a decent match together. Volkoff should have been paired up with a smaller guy so they could work the sympathy angle. The Orient Express can’t get anything going and Duggan hits the Three Point Stance to win. No redeeming features. Duggan and Volkoff were both horrible unless motivated and The Orient Express took one look at them and said “no thanks”.
Final Rating: DUD
