WWF Superstars June 25th, 1994 Erie, PA Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
The show opened with Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler building up tonight's main event, in which The Hollywood Blonds defend their WWF Tag Team Titles against the British Bulldogs. This match-up comes with the stipulation that if the Bulldogs fail to win the gold, they won't receive another title shot for the duration of the Blonds tag title reign.

The alluring Alundra's Swiss Bobsleigh Team chalked up another win tonight on Superstars and celebrated it in their own unique style. Lars and Luca are sure to face a sterner test next week when they square off against the Nasty Boys.
Adam Bomb pinned Mike Moraldo with the Atom Smasher in 0:03:17. Rating: 3/4*
The British Bulldogs were shown going through some last minute preparations backstage. Dynamite Kid told Davey Boy Smith to stop stretching so he could talk to him. Dynamite apologised to Smith for blowing up at him after their match with the Hollywood Blonds at the King of the Ring. Dynamite told Davey Boy that he was his partner and he would always have his back. Davey Boy thanked him and the two men shook hands. Davey Boy encouraged Dynamite Kid to make this a night to remember and capture the Tag Team Titles for a record fourth time. Dynamite promised his partner that this would be a night he'd never forget.

This was another powerful performance from newcomer Man Mountain Rock, who steamrollered through young Charlie Hunter. Hunter succumbed to the Wallapalooza.
Footage was shown from Monday Night RAW of the shocking debut of the newest faction in the World Wrestling Federation, Gary Hart's Black Friday Management.

Barry Windham pinned P.J. Walker with the Superplex in 0:04:11. Barry Windham suffered an elbow injury. He will be out for approximately 1 month. Rating: * 1/2
During the bout, Crush cut an insert promo on Barry Windham, addressing The Widowmaker's attack on him following Crush's win over Ted DiBiase at the King of the Ring. Crush said that when his abdominal injury heals he will be gunning for Windham.
A vignette aired for the newest addition to the tag team ranks of the World Wrestling Federation, Lance Storm and Chris Jericho, better known as The Thrillseekers. The video showed the young Canadians having fun, staying up all night and painting the town red, all set to the soundtrack of Bon Jovi's "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead."
The Hollywood Blonds (Steve Austin and Brian Pillman) defeated The British Bulldogs (Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid) when S. Austin pinned Davey Boy after the Brush with Greatness in 0:02:38. Rating: ** 1/2 (The Hollywood Blonds retained the WWF World Tag Team Titles.)
The turn of events in this World Tag Team Match were simply astounding. As soon as the referee called for the bell to start the match, Dynamite Kid immediately struck his partner Davey Boy Smith with a stiff clothesline to the back of the head! Smith rolled into the corner, where Dynamite destroyed him with a barrage of vicious kicks and stomps! Dynamite then bailed out of the ring and walked to the back, leaving Davey Boy at the mercy of the Hollywood Blonds! Steve Austin and Brian Pillman couldn't quite believe their luck and after hesitating for a few seconds, they put Davey Boy away with their finisher for the easiest title defence they will ever have.
The fans were stunned at the actions of Dynamite Kid as Davey Boy Smith lay spread out in the middle of the ring. The camera cut quickly backstage, where Sean Mooney was chasing after Dynamite Kid, hoping to get an explanation. Dynamite simply ignored Mooney's questions and did not utter a word. He left the arena and walked out into the parking lot, where a limousine appeared to be waiting for him. None other than Tammy Lynn Fytch got out of the car, applauding Dynamite Kid!! Dynamite got into the limo and Fytch joined him in the back seat, before slamming the car door in Mooney's face! The limo then sped off, leaving Mooney is disbelief at what he had just witnessed!
Circuit information: Tonight's edition of Superstars featured an astonishing turn of events. In the main event, Dynamite Kid turned on his longtime tag team partner Davey Boy Smith and joined up with Fytch Wrestling Enterprises. WWF fans live in the arena and watching on at home were left in a state of shock at these bewildering developments. Why would Dynamite Kid stab Davey Boy Smith in the back? Why would he join forces with Tammy Fytch?? Hopefully we will get some answers from Dynamite Kid in due course.
Don't miss this week's edition of Monday Night RAW, where Macho Man Randy Savage will risk it all as he challenges Big Van Vader for the WWF Title. Savage, who has serious internal injuries, was goaded into facing Vader for the gold without allowing time to heal. Knowing how ruthless and sadistic the Mastodon is, this could be the last time the Macho Man sets foot in a WWF ring for a very lone time. But can Savage upset the champion and capture the WWF Championship for a third time?
Also on RAW, Black Friday Management are back in the house as the Great Muta will be in action, plus Scott Steiner goes one-on-one with the Lightning Kid! Till then, so long everybody!!

Monday Night RAW June 27th, 1994 Westchester County Civic Center, White Plains, NY Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
The show opened with a video package hyping up tonight's main event, where an injured Macho Man Randy Savage is putting his career in jeopardy for the chance to capture the WWF Championship from the unstoppable Mastodon, Big Van Vader. Vader was then shown going through an intense warm-up in his locker room. Harley Race fired his man up and claimed he couldn't see anybody taking the title from the Rocky Mountain Monster. Race said we were moments away from Randy Savage's final match as Vader was set to Vader Bomb the Macho Man into oblivion!
Scott Steiner, along with his manager Tammy Fytch, made their way out for the opening match of Monday Night RAW. Sean Mooney rushed out after Fytch, hoping to ask her questions about the acquisition of Dynamite Kid to Fytch Wrestling Enterprises. Fytch said he would have to wait, just like everybody else.
Scott Steiner pinned Lightning Kid with the SSD in 0:08:05. Rating: ***
Scott Steiner took over in this match when he crotched the Lightning Kid on the top rope when Kid went for a moonsault bodyblock. Steiner then launched Kid off the top rope with a vicious belly-to-back superplex. Steiner rolled through Lightning Kid with a twisting double underhook power bomb and a Steinerline, much to Tammy Fytch's delight. Scott Steiner then spiked Kid on his neck with the Screwdriver for the three count.
Lightning Kid was clutching his neck in severe pain as a result of Scott Steiner's dangerous finishing manoeuvre. While the official tended to Kid, Tammy Fytch grabbed the mic and warned Intercontinental Champion Razor Ramon that he could expect exactly the same fate if he ever has the guts to step in the ring again with Steiner. Hoping to send a message to the Bad Guy, Steiner dragged Lightning Kid's limp body off the mat and went to execute another Steiner Screwdriver. The crowd popped as Ramon himself ran out to make the save, sending Steiner packing!
Razor Ramon helped Lightning Kid to the back during the break and warned Scott Steiner that he was playing with fire.
Backstage, Randy Savage was warming up for his WWF Title Match with Big Van Vader. The Macho Man, whose ribs were taped heavily, winced every so often as he went through his preparations. Savage was clearly in a lot of discomfort. Crush, who is Randy Savage's good friend and is recovering from an abdominal injury himself, entered the dressing room and attempted to talk some sense into the Macho Man. Crush tried to convince Savage to put off the bout with Vader until he was fully healed and then come back and win the WWF Title at a later date. Savage ignored Crush's advice and described how it wasn't an option to let Big Van Vader and Harley Race punk him out. The Macho Man said that the fire still burns inside him and he is eager for the spotlight...one more time. Crush, who understood, shook Savage's hand and wished him luck.
Mack McCall narrated another vignette hyping up his WWF debut. He described that driving up and down a road, 365 days a year, sleeping in the cab, eating when you can, makes you the king of that road. McCall said that compared to driving, the WWF would be a snap. McCall claimed that the company had never seen someone as tough as a truck driver and he would show how tough a trucker is very soon. Mack McCall is coming to the WWF - and he debuts next week!
Black Friday Management entered the arena as the Great Muta limbered up for action next. Gary Hart, flanked by the Arabian Butchers and Kimona, joined Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan at the commentary table.
Great Muta pinned Rich Myers with the Moonsault Press in 0:02:39. Rating: *
While Great Muta systematically decimated his opponent, on commentary Gary Hart put over the phenomenal wrestling machine from the Orient. Hart admitted that he has a great deal of respect for people from the Land of the Rising Sun and claimed that the most honourable, the best trained and the greatest athletes in the world come from Japan. Hart - who is well connected in the wrestling business - revealed that he had been trying for years to get Muta and now he had the power to do it. Hart branded Muta a very dangerous weapon and that together they will conquer the bigoted and prejudiced World Wrestling Federation.
In the ring, Great Muta nailed Rich Myers with a handspring elbow and used a backbreaker. After working over Myers with a nerve hold, Muta hit an enzuigiri and then caught his opponent with a fantastic looking moonsault to score the pinfall win.
Footage aired of Dynamite Kid's betrayal of Davey Boy Smith from last weekend's edition of Superstars. Smith then cut a promo where he vowed to be at Superstars this weekend and he is coming for answers!!
Big Van Vader defeated Randy Savage via referee stoppage in 0:08:31. Rating: ** 1/2 (Big Van Vader retained the WWF World Heavyweight Title.) [Harley Race interfered against Randy Savage.]
Randy Savage went straight on the offensive at the start of this bout, figuring that the best way to protect his injury was to stop Big Van Vader getting on the attack. The Macho Man sent Vader out of the ring with a clothesline and then drove the Mastodon into the ringpost with a high knee to the back! Savage then had the crowd on the edge of their seats, hitting a double ax handle from the top rope onto Vader who was draped against the guard rail. Back between the ropes, Savage went for another flying axhandle but Harley Race grabbed a hold of his foot. While the Macho Man tried to regain his balance, Vader capitalised on the distraction by punching Savage in the ribs. Vader climbed up on the turnbuckles and lifted the hurt challenger onto his shoulders, before dumping Savage ribs-first onto the top turnbuckle!! Savage slumped to the ringside floor, where Vader punished Savage's ribs further by ramming the Macho Man into the ringpost. Savage was writhing around in agony, but the Mastodon refused to show any mercy and threw the Macho Man's broken body back into the ring. Savage got a foot over the bottom rope to prevent the pinfall after a sick power bomb, much to the joy of the crowd. Savage tried to get some respite in the corner, but the ruthless WWF Champion kept coming after him, pummelling Savage with a succession of nasty body shots. The Macho Man began to cough up blood as Vader continued the merciless assault. With blood streaming from Savage's mouth, the referee - possibly fearing that Savage would suffer permanent internal damage - called for the bell and awarded the match to Big Van Vader.
The fans jeered the result and Big Van Vader was not happy either - he wanted to end the Macho Man Randy Savage's career. At Harley Race's request, Vader slammed Savage down and set him up for a Vader Bomb. The official tried to intervene but he was punched out by Race. Vader connected with a devastating Vader Bomb as the Macho Man spat out more mouthfuls of claret. Race signalled for another and Vader brutalised every road agent and official that dared to enter the ring. Big Van Vader ascended the ropes in preparation for a second Vader Bomb when suddenly the arena plunged into darkness!! A gong rang out through the arena as The Undertaker slowly walked down the aisle! Vader got ready to confront the Deadman as the fans went wild for the Undertaker. 'Taker and Vader went nose-to-nose in the centre of the ring, prepared to go at it! However, Harley Race convinced his man to save it for another day and the two men left the ring with the WWF Championship in tow. The crowd jeered the retreating Vader and Race, while The Undertaker pointed to the WWF Title. The Phenom then looked at Vader and ran his thumb across his throat as the show drew to a close!!
Circuit information: Macho Man Randy Savage was beaten from pillar to post by Big Van Vader in their WWF Championship Match this evening, but through it all Savage never gave up. Savage gave everything he had until his internal injuries took their toll. When the Macho Man began coughing up blood, the official was left with no option but to make a judgement call and stop the match. Regardless of the result, Hall of Fame bound Macho Man Randy Savage is a champion in the eyes of WWF fans all over the world.
It could have ended much worse for Randy Savage though, had Big Van Vader and Harley Race gotten their way. Race and Vader were determined to end Savage's career tonight, but it was an appearance from the Undertaker that brought their assault of the Macho Man to a screeching halt. Undertaker has not forgotten how his chance of becoming WWF Champion for the second time was robbed from him by Race and Vader at the King of the Ring and made his objective of capturing the title from Big Van Vader very clear. There were some chilling words from Gary Hart on commentary this evening as he laid out his agenda for Black Friday Management - dominate and reign over the World Wrestling Federation. Great Muta looks even more focused and destructive under the guidance of Hart and with the Arabian Butchers and Kimona in the mix as well, Gart Hart has assembled a very formidable army.
Bad News Brown was suspended for 60 days by WWF President Jack Tunney this past May. His suspension expires this week and you have to wonder whether or not he will he show up on Superstars. Speaking of that show, Davey Boy Smith has vowed be there and demand an explanation from the Dynamite Kid in what promises to be a very volatile situation! We hope you'll join us this weekend - till then, so long everybody!!

Match observations: Tonight's show featured the debut of NASCAR driver turned wrestler Bob "Spark Plugg" Holly. The fans took to Holly, who was victorious over the Brooklyn Brawler with a flying cross body press.
The Hollywood Blonds faced a stern test from the unconventional combination of Friar Ferguson and the Berzerker. Brian Pillman and Steve Austin were lucky to escape with their titles after Austin used a clapperboard behind the referee's back.
"Double J" Jeff Jarrett continues to build momentum, scoring a huge win over former Intercontinental Champion Tatanka. It was not without controversy though - Jarrett smashed his acoustic guitar over Tatanka's head to score the pin.
Razor Ramon challenged Big Van Vader for the WWF Title in the main event. The crowd was solidly behind Ramon, who had the Mastodon reeling. Vader was shaken enough to get himself disqualified after he drilled the Bad Guy with the championship belt. Vader continued to assault Ramon after the match, but the Big Boss Man, Duke Droese, Friar Ferguson and the Berzerker made the save and ran Vader off.

The Swiss Bobsleigh Team were given the sternest test of their WWF careers so far as they went up against former Tag Team Champions the Nasty Boys. Knobbs and Sags were in control for most of the bout, but their momentum was interrupted when Alundra tripped Sags. Knobbs tried to punish her for her interference by giving her the Pit Stop! As a horrified Alundra tried to squirm out of Knobbs' grasp, Luca capitalised on the distraction by blasting Knobbs with a running knee to the back of the head! Knobbs collapsed to the mat in a heap and Luca pinned him easily!
There was no time for the Swiss Bobsleighers to complete their trademark celebration as Sags chased them to the back with a steel chair.
Scotty Flamingo pinned Reno Riggins with the Point Break in 0:06:10. Rating: ** 3/4
Highlights were shown of the WWF title match from Monday Night RAW between Randy Savage and Big Van Vader.

A music video then showed Jericho and Storm seeking thrills and having fun.
Bob Backlund and Todd Mata battled to a no-contest in 0:00:38. Rating: DUD
This match never got started as Bad News Brown, returning tonight from a sixty day suspension, hit the ring and attacked both men. Bad News destroyed Backlund with kicks and punches, before throwing him out of the ring. Brown then attacked Todd Mata and sent him packing with the Ghetto Blaster.
Bad News Brown said that WWF President Jack Tunney's decision to send him home to stew and fester was the worst thing Tunney could have ever done. Bad News said that he had returned meaner and nastier than ever and he was going to take out his frustrations on the WWF locker room, starting with these two spineless cockroaches tonight! Brown warned that he was taking no prisoners.
Marty Jannetty pinned Big Bully Busick with the Rocker Dropper in 0:06:04. Rating: ** [Harvey Wippleman interfered against Marty Jannetty.]
Marty Jannetty made short work of Big Bully Busick this week on Superstars. Harvey Wippleman tried to get involved, but Jannetty thwarted his plans and sent Wippleman flying off the apron with a punch to the face! Jannetty put Busick away with the Rocker Dropper.
After the match, Big Bully Busick helped Harvey Wippleman to the back. Wippleman was clutching his face and screaming that his nose was broken!
Vince McMahon announced that in two weeks' time on Superstars, there will be a "Golden Dream" Tag Team Match in which all the participants will be former Intercontinental Champions. It will be Bam Bam Bigelow and Shawn Michaels vs Mr. Perfect and Tatanka. The winning team will then face off in a singles match the following week. The winner of that particular bout will earn an Intercontinental Title Match against Razor Ramon.
When the show returned from commercial, Gene Okerlund was in the ring ready to interview Dynamite Kid and his new manager, Tammy Fytch. Dynamite Kid was greeted with boos and jeers, while Fytch looked disgusted at the reception her new charge was getting. Okerlund asked Dynamite the question that was on the lips of every WWF fan - why did he turn his back on his longtime tag team partner Davey Boy Smith? Dynamite took the mic and cut a promo on Davey Boy. Dynamite claimed that he was a better wrestler than Davey Boy and had carried him the whole time that they had been teaming as the British Bulldogs. Dynamite said that he had made Smith and took credit for starting Smith's career. Dynamite said that he was the one that convinced the Harts to bring Davey Boy over from England to train him. Dynamite turned to Fytch and thanked her for showing him the light, while the beaming Fytch applauded. Dynamite proclaimed himself to be, pound for pound, the greatest wrestler of all time!
That final comment brought out Davey Boy Smith to a rapturous response!! Smith tried to get at Dynamite, but Dynamite cowardly hid behind Tammy Fytch! Dynamite told Smith to hold back, as he had some things to say to him that he had been waiting a long time to say. Dynamite branded Davey a "boy" and said that Smith isn't fit to carry his jock! Dynamite called Davey Boy the weak link of their team, pointing out that on each occasion that they had dropped the Tag Team Titles since returning, it was Smith who dropped the fall! Dynamite said that it felt great to finally have this monkey off his back! Dynamite then spat in Smith's face!! Incensed, Smith shoved Fytch aside and attacked Dynamite!! Davey Boy hammered Dynamite down to the canvas and began choking him, when suddenly The Beverly Brothers made an unexpected return!! Beau and Blake came to Dynamite's aid, helping him take out Davey Boy! The Beverlys dropped Davey Boy throat-first over the top rope with their leapfrog body guillotine, before holding Smith in place for two diving headbutts from Dynamite Kid! Dynamite stood over Smith, slapped him and blew snot on him, while the Beverly Brothers hugged Tammy! As the show drew to a close, The Beverlys held up Dynamite Kid's arms in triumph while Fytch looked on, extremely proud of herself.
Circuit information: An explosive ending to this week's edition of Superstars, where Dynamite Kid had some choice words for his former partner Davey Boy Smith. Dynamite tore Smith apart on the microphone, branding him the weak link of the British Bulldogs and taking credit for making his career. Dynamite spat in Smith's face and a full scale brawl broke out, which brought out the newest members of Fytch Wrestling Enterprises, The Beverly Brothers! Beau, Blake and Dynamite did a number on Smith and left him lying. Tammy Fytch is building up quite a stable of superstars and this cunning, intelligent woman should not be underestimated. She was the brains behind this set-up of Davey Boy Smith and she is determined to reach the top of the WWF by any means necessary.
Harvey Wippleman blew a gasket after the show and in the midst of his rage, Wippleman fired Big Bully Busick. Wippleman was incensed after he was decked by Marty Jannetty.
An injury update on Randy Savage. He was diagnosed with a pair of cracked ribs and a ruptured spleen after Monday Night RAW. No word on when he will return to action.
Make sure you join us this week for Monday Night RAW, where Crush returns to action and Mack McCall will make his debut! Also on the show, Jack Tunney will announce Big Van Vader's opponent for the WWF Title match at SummerSlam!! Till then, so long everybody!

First, for the love of all things holy, GET THAT LADDER MATCH BETWEEN RAZOR AND SHAWN IN. Some things were too perfect to mess with.
Second, I like your IC division a lot in general. That was always my favorite title and around this time the WWF dropped the ball utterly on having opponents for Razor. Bam Bam, face Tatanka, a healthy Mr. Perfect, and young Scott Steiner (along with Michaels, of course) make for a great string of challengers.
Third, I'd really like to see how you use Razor over the next year or so. He's definitely over enough for a main event program; I wouldn't have him carry the title for a year Diesel-like, but as a temporary champ or just challenger he's real solid.
Fourth, really like how you're using the older Bad News Brown.
Fifth, agreed, also looking forward to this Undertaker/Vader showdown.
Sixth, anyone else think a Savage/Razor pairing around this time (Macho Kings, I guess) would have been one of the most fun tag teams ever?
Seventh, poor Bully.
Eighth, Big Boss Man and Adam Bomb get three stars in ten minutes? In a non-gimmicked match? I think you may have been too generous with their historical workrates.
I wonder what you have in mind for WMXI. If I had to guess, I'd say:
SummerSlam: Vader d. Undertaker
Survivor Series: Undertaker d. Vader, casket match, Bret Hart d. Bad News Brown
Royal Rumble: Bret Hart wins, The Undertaker d. Shawn Michaels
WrestleMania: Bret Hart vs. The Undertaker
Of course, in my KOTR94 predictions I said Shawn vs. Bret at WMXI. That seems less likely now but still a possibility.

Footage was shown from the King of the Ring of Barry Windham destroying Crush after the big Hawaiian had defeated the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. The Widowmaker focused his attack on Crush's midsection and Crush has been sidelined since then. He makes his return next.
Crush pinned Mike Sharpe after a powerslam in 0:02:16. Rating: 3/4*
The crowd were delighted to see Crush back in action as he made short work of Iron Mike Sharpe. Crush put away the veteran with a big powerslam.
After the match, Crush was distracted by Ted DiBiase making an appearance. DiBiase jumped up onto the ring apron, but Crush was blindsided by The Widowmaker Barry Windham! Windham threw Crush into the corner and began to assault Crush's midsection. The Widowmaker went for a shoulderblock to the gut, but Crush moved and Windham struck the ringpost hard! Crush then went after DiBiase, clotheslining him out of the ring and then tossing him into the steel steps! Crush was a man possessed as he turned his attention back to the prone Windham. He grabbed Windham's arm and rammed it into the ringpost repeatedly, while The Widowmaker yelled out in agony! Crush then snatched a steel chair and smashed it into Windham's arm!! Officials and road agents managed to disarm Crush and drag him away before any further damage could be done. Windham favoured his injured arm and feared that he had broken it while Ted DiBiase threatened to make Crush pay dearly for doing this to his bodyguard!!
Tito Santana pinned Mike Bell after a short lariat in 0:05:46. Mike Bell suffered a larynx injury. He will be out for approximately 2 months. Rating: **
Jerry "The King" Lawler hosted an edition of the King's Court. His guests this week were Scott Steiner and Tammy Fytch, who were not happy about the Golden Dream Tag Team Match set for two weeks' time on Superstars. This bout, featuring all former Intercontinental Champions, will see Bam Bam Bigelow and Shawn Michaels square off with Mr. Perfect and Tatanka. The winning team will then face off in a singles match the following week with a shot at Razor Ramon's Intercontinental Title at stake. Fytch was disgusted that Scott Steiner was not next in line for a shot at Ramon's title. Fytch asked if WWF officials had forgotten about Steiner's "crushing defeat" of the Bad Guy at the King of the Ring. She said that Steiner's victory over Ramon should have automatically made him the number one contender. Fytch accused WWF management of plotting to hold Steiner down and warned that she was assembling her legal team.
Mack McCall pinned Gary Scott with the Breaker Breaker in 0:04:08. Rating: * 1/4
This was the official WWF debut of "The Toughest Trucker on the Road" Mack McCall and he did not disappoint. McCall simply took Gary Scott apart and finished him with a stalled neckbreaker that he calls the "Breaker Breaker".
The show returned from commercial with WWF President Jack Tunney in the ring. Tunney announced that SummerSlam was all set for Monday night, August 29th, from the brand new United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Tunney said that at the hottest event of the summer, you need a hot main event. He was about to reveal the identity of WWF Champion Big Van Vader's opponent when he was interrupted by Bad News Brown. The crowd booed Bad News out of the building, but Brown told the fans that he didn't care what these "beer-bellied sharecroppers" thought of him! Tunney warned Bad News that if he laid a finger on him, he would suspend him again - but this time it would be indefinitely. Brown laughed and told Tunney to relax. Bad News claimed that Tunney had made a mistake when he hit him with a suspension, but Tunney could make up for it by giving Bad News what he deserved - a shot at the WWF Title at SummerSlam! Tunney said he saw things a little differently to Bad News and was instead awarding the title shot to...The Undertaker!!
The crowd popped as The Undertaker made his entrance. Bad News Brown paced up and down the ring in anger. Bad News confronted The Undertaker as the Deadman entered the ring. Brown said that he never had a problem with the Deadman before, but if The Undertaker was standing in the way of him becoming WWF Champion, then there was a huge problem. The Undertaker rolled his eyes back into his head, while Paul Bearer held up the urn. Brown mocked the Undertaker, claiming that he wasn't scared of him or his 80-year old punk sidekick. Jack Tunney then interjected with an idea. He suggested that Bad News Brown face The Undertaker one-on-one next week on Monday Night RAW, with the winner facing Big Van Vader for the WWF Title at SummerSlam! The crowd voiced their approval. Bad News accepted this idea and warned that next week The Undertaker would not get a chance to play any mind games or apply the Tombstone, because he would put his foot so far up 'Taker's backside that his breath would smell like shoe polish!! Brown then turned to Paul Bearer and said that he had something for him too if he tried to get involved! Suddenly, The Undertaker grabbed Bad News Brown by the throat and said that next week, he would have to face the Reaper! Bad News shoved him off and the two men faced off nose-to-nose as the show drew to a close!!
Circuit information: It is now official - The Undertaker will battle Bad News Brown next week on Monday Night RAW, with a shot at the WWF Championship in the main event of SummerSlam at stake!! Brown feels he should be the rightful champion after former champion Bret Hart suffered an injury in a match with him and was forced to vacate the title. The Undertaker feels aggrieved after Harley Race cost him his first round match with Big Van Vader in the WWF Title tournament at the King of the Ring. One of these men will get what they feel they deserve after next week's bout, which is sure to be a knock-down drag-out slugfest!
Barry Windham suffered a partial tear in a ligament in his right elbow during the vicious attack by Crush tonight and will be out of action for a month. Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase is not happy that his bodyguard has been sidelined and has sworn vengeance.
This weekend on Superstars, Gene Okerlund will conduct a sitdown interview with Dynamite Kid, which will surely make interesting viewing. Also, the newest members of Fytch Wrestling Enterprises, the Beverly Brothers, will be in action in their first bout under the tutelage of Tammy Fytch. Till then, so long everybody!!

Like how the DiBiase/Windham vs Crush fued is heating up.
Taker vs Bad News? BAD NEWS GONNA DIE! Actually, sadly, I see visions of Vader and/or Harley Race getting involved and causing the match to end in DQ or maybe even some kind of fluke win for Bad News.
Bad News is waaaaaaay over as a heel with me right now. Vader is a great monster, Tammy & Co smugly annoying, DiBiase cocky rich jerk, but you've written Bad News so well I really want to see him get snapped in half. We're talking "Who's gonna finally shut up Honky Tonk and take the IC Title off him" heat. Bravo.

The Arabian Butchers (Manuel and Victor) defeated Gary Sabaugh and John Paul when Manuel pinned J. Paul after a splash in 0:04:08. Rating: ** 1/4
The Arabian Butchers, representing Gary Hart's Black Friday Management, recorded an emphatic win tonight on Superstars. The ice cold cerebral businessman Hart looked on approvingly at ringside while the Butchers hammered their opponents.
After squashing John Paul, the physically imposing twins roughed up Gary Sabaugh. Manuel and Victor held Sabaugh in place for Kimona to enter the ring and unleash a succession of martial arts kicks to the youngster. Gary Hart took the mic and said that with him now guiding the careers of these remorseless creatures, it was about to get a whole lot scarier in the World Wrestling Federation.
Bam Bam Bigelow was accompanied to the ring for the next match by his manager Harvey Wippleman, who was wearing a ridiculously oversized nose guard. Wippleman suffered a broken nose as a result of being punched in the face by Marty Jannetty on last week's show.
Bam Bam Bigelow pinned George South with the Diving Headbutt in 0:02:31. Rating: * 3/4 [Harvey Wippleman interfered against George South.]
During the match, Bam Bam Bigelow cut an insert promo regarding next week's Golden Dream Tag Team Match, claiming to be fully prepared and concentrated on recapturing the Intercontinental Title.
After the match, Sean Mooney came down to ringside to interview Harvey Wippleman. Wippleman ripped into Big Bully Busick, claiming to have fired him for being a useless buffoon. He said that he needed to surround himself with people he could trust so nothing bad - like what happened last week - could ever happen to him again. The Warlord, in his first WWF appearance for two years, wandered out to the ring as Wippleman revealed he had convinced him to return and watch his back. Wippleman warned Marty Jannetty that he would make him pay for the physical disfigurement he had endured!
Harley Race cut a promo ahead of The Undertaker vs Bad News Brown number one contenders match on Monday Night RAW. Race said it doesn't matter who goes on to face Big Van Vader for the WWF Title at SummerSlam, because the Mastodon feels no pain and fears no man!!
Max Moon pinned Black Phantom with the Moon Landing in 0:03:13. Rating: ** 1/4
During the bout, Max Moon cut an insert promo sending well wishes to the Lightning Kid, who had recently injured his neck at the hands of Scott Steiner and the devastating SSD.
Another Thrillseekers vignette was shown. Chris Jericho and Lance Storm were working out at the gym ahead of their debut in the WWF.
Backstage, Sean Mooney interviewed Mr. Perfect and Tatanka. The two men will be on the same side in next week's Golden Dream Tag Team Match. Perfect acknowledged their controversial match at the King of the Ring and apologised to Tatanka for being a hot-head. Tatanka said things were fine between them and they were 100% focussed on defeating Shawn Michaels and Bam Bam Bigelow next week. Then, Tatanka said, they would leave it in the hands of the Gods as to who goes on to challenge for the Intercontinental Title. Perfect and Tatanka then shook hands.
Big Boss Man pinned Chris Canyon with the Boss Man Slam in 0:02:16. Rating: * 1/2
Gene Okerlund conducted a sitdown interview with Dynamite Kid and Tammy Fytch. Dynamite Kid calmly explained his reasons for turning on Davey Boy Smith and joining Fytch Wrestling Enterprises. Dynamite called Davey Boy Smith an ungrateful leech who was holding him back. He again branded Smith as the weak link of the British Bulldogs team, as footage aired of Smith losing the fall in title losses to the Steiner Brothers and in the Triple Threat match at WrestleMania. Dynamite claimed that he was continually being held back by tagging with Davey Boy. Dynamite panned Davey Boy for returning to the WWF without him in 1990, leaving Dynamite high and dry in Japan. Tammy Fytch confidently predicted that Smith would be a zero without Dynamite to carry him anymore. Okerlund questioned how they could call Davey Boy the weak link and a zero when Smith is a former Intercontinental Champion. That comment sent Dynamite into a rage and he stormed off-set! Fytch called Okerlund an idiot and rushed after Dynamite to calm him down.
The Beverly Brothers (Beau Beverly and Blake Beverly) defeated The Headshrinkers (Fatu and Samu) when Beau pinned Fatu after the Shaker Heights Spike in 0:07:49. Samu suffered a sprained ankle. He will be out for approximately 1 month. Rating: ** [Tammy Fytch interfered against Fatu.] [Afa interfered against Blake Beverly.]
During the bout, The Beverly Brothers cut an insert promo, claiming that Tammy Fytch was the best manager that they had ever had. They took a few shots at former manager The Genius, calling him a clown. Vince McMahon suggested that Fytch was a perfect match for Beau and Blake as they were all spoiled brats. Jerry Lawler predicted tag team gold for the Beverlys within six months!
The Beverly Brothers displayed a focus and determination they had never shown before in WWF rings here tonight against the Headshrinkers. They isolated Fatu after taking out Samu on the floor, viciously attacking Samu's ankle. Fatu was left in a two-on-one situation with the despicable Beverlys and he eventually succumbed to the Shaker Heights Spike. A convincing win for Beau and Blake!
Tammy Fytch celebrated with her new team after the match. Vince McMahon was forced to acknowleged that Jerry Lawler's prediction did not seem all that far-fetched now.
The show closed with the announcers hyping up the Undertaker vs Bad News Brown match-up on Monday Night RAW.
Circuit information: Tammy Fytch has already worked wonders with the Beverly Brothers as Fytch Wrestling Enterprises continues to grow stronger. Fytch looked on with delight as Beau and Blake destroyed the Headshrinkers tonight. The cunning Fytch has brought out a new aggressive attitude in the Beverlys which may lead them to championship gold.
Harvey Wippleman has also added to the ranks of his stable, bringing the Warlord back to the WWF. Wippleman has sent the Warlord after Marty Jannetty in order to exact revenge for the broken nose he suffered at the hands of the former Rocker.
This coming week on Monday Night RAW, our SummerSlam main event will be confirmed. In order to determine who will challenge Big Van Vader for the WWF Title at the hottest event of the summer, The Undertaker goes one-on-one with Bad News Brown! Who will come out on top? Join us this Monday night to find out!!

Monday Night RAW July 11th, 1994 Fernwood Resort, Bushkill, PA Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
This week's show opened with promos from Bad News Brown and The Undertaker ahead of their showdown in the main event. Bad News Brown said that the company had thought they had got rid of him when they hit him with a sixty day suspension, but all it did was make him come back that much meaner and that much tougher. He suggested that the Undertaker get back in his casket and hide because Bad News is back in town. The Undertaker said that when Bad News threatened Paul Bearer last week, in one single moment he had sealed his fate. 'Taker vowed to crush Brown and throw his soul into eternal darkness!
Backstage, the Lightning Kid was preparing for his singles bout with Shawn Michaels. Max Moon, who was worried about his tag team partner, tried to talk him out of taking the match. Moon feared that the Kid had still not fully recovered after taking Scott Steiner's SSD two weeks ago. Kid assured Moon that he was fine and headed for the ring.
Before the opening match, WWF Intercontinental Champion Razor Ramon came down to ringside to provide colour commentary. Ramon said he was out to scout Shawn Michaels, one quarter of the big Golden Dream Tag Team Match which is taking place this weekend on Superstars.
Lightning Kid and Shawn Michaels battled to a no-contest in 0:12:58. Rating: *** 1/2 [Liz interfered against Lightning Kid.]
The Lightning Kid and Shawn Michaels had one of the best matches so far this year on Monday Night RAW. Kid send the Heartbreak Kid out to ringside with a spin kick to the jaw and attempted to follow up with a flip dive, but Liz pulled HBK out of the way and Kid hit the floor hard! As Liz distracted the official, Michaels pulled the steel steps away from the ring and dumped the Kid gut-first on top of them! At the commentary table, Razor Ramon was growing more and more agitated with the Heartbreak Kid's tactics. Michaels then exposed the bottom section of the steps and drilled the Lightning Kid with a piledriver!! The Kid was out cold and, fearing for the youngster's career, Ramon left the commentary table and went to confront HBK! Michaels wanted no part of the Bad Guy and bailed as the referee threw the match out.
Razor Ramon returned to ringside to assist medical staff in helping the Lightning Kid onto a stretcher. Ramon stayed by the Kid’s side as he was wheeled away from ringside. Suddenly, Scott Steiner appeared at ringside and swiped Ramon's Intercontinental Title belt! Steiner chased up the aisle after Ramon and clocked him in the back of the head with the belt!! Steiner put the boots to Ramon and yelled at the Bad Guy to stop dodging him, before the maniacal Steiner was dragged off by road agents!
Man Mountain Rock made Mark Thomas submit to the Whammy Bar in 0:02:02. Rating: * 1/4
Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase was the guest on this week's edition of the King's Court. DiBiase addressed the attack conducted on his bodyguard Barry Windham at the hands of Crush last week, which resulted in Windham being ruled out for several weeks with an elbow injury. The Million Dollar Man warned that the consequences would be severe for Crush. DiBiase then announced that he has put a $50,000 bounty on the head of the Hawaiian superstar! DiBiase clarified that the goal of the bounty is not to pin Crush, but to cripple him.
Backstage, Shawn Michaels was shown shaking hands with both Tammy Fytch and Scott Steiner. Fytch then noticed the camera on them and yelled at the cameraman to leave!
Number-One-Contenders-Match: The Undertaker pinned Bad News Brown with the Tombstone in 0:08:03. Rating: * 1/4
Bad News Brown jumped The Undertaker before he could even get his robe off and they brawled to the floor. 'Taker floored Bad News with a flying clothesline, but Brown came back and clipped the Deadman's knee. 'Taker fought off Bad News with punches and went for the ropewalk forearm, but Brown crotched him on the top rope. Brown went after the knee again. Bad News missed the Ghetto Blaster and Undertaker landed a choke slam. 'Taker signalled for the Tombstone, but just then Harley Race made his way out, distracting the Deadman. Bad News seized the opportunity to go low on The Undertaker. Bad News then tried to put away The Undertaker with 'Taker's own finishing hold, the Tombstone, but Undertaker reversed into a Tombstone of his own for the three count!
Harley Race was furious at the result and WWF Champion Big Van Vader joined his manager in the aisle. The Undertaker pointed at Vader - the man he will now face for the championship at SummerSlam - and slashed his own throat with his right hand, taunting the WWF Champion! Harley Race desperately tried to hold the Mastodon back from entering the ring! The locker room emptied with officials and road agents, blocking Vader's route to the ring. The Undertaker signalled that the title would soon be around his waist, which only further infuriated Vader, as the show went off-air!!
Circuit information: The stage is set for SummerSlam on August 29th - Big Van Vader will defend the WWF Championship against The Undertaker in Chicago!! It is a mouth-watering prospect for WWF fans and it gives the Deadman the chance to get his hands on the Mastodon, an opportunity he has been waiting for since the screwjob at the King of the Ring.
Shawn Michaels and the Lightning Kid went to an unsatisfying non-finish in a tremendous bout tonight. Michaels attacked Kid after the match, further injuring the youngster's weakened neck with a piledriver on the steel steps! This was all Razor Ramon could take, who then went after Michaels. However, Ramon was then jumped by Scott Steiner, the man that is hell-bent on taking the Bad Guy's Intercontinental Championship! Are Michaels and Steiner in cahoots??
Scott Steiner is furious that he has not been considered for the Golden Dream Tag Team Match this weekend on Superstars, which will see Bam Bam Bigelow team up with Shawn Michaels to face the team of Mr. Perfect and Tatanka. The winning team will then face off in a singles match the following week. The winner of that particular bout will earn an Intercontinental Title Match against Razor Ramon. You have to feel that Ramon, who is a marked man at present, will be crossing his fingers that HBK comes out on top so he can dish out some retribution for what Michaels did to the Lightning Kid tonight.
After the show, The Lightning Kid was diagnosed with a stinger as a result of Shawn Michaels' piledriver. Kid is expected to make a full recovery after several weeks' rest.
Enraged at the injury suffered by his bodyguard Barry Windham, Ted DiBiase has put a bounty on the head of Crush. Who will step up and try to take out the big Hawaiian?
Mack McCall has quit, effective immediately. Hope you didn't blink and miss his WWF career.
Join us this weekend for Superstars, where in addition to the Golden Dream Tag Team Match, we have been told to expect a big announcement regarding the Tag Team Title picture! Till then, so long everybody!!

LOL @ Mack McCall's WWF stint. Had more vignettes than actual matches. I guess after his debut match, Murdoch remembered his age and realized how cheesy the gimmick was. Still think it would've been better to bring in Diesel with that gimmick rather than Murdoch.
Bounty on Crush = very cool. Looking forward to seeing who tries to cash in.
Looks like the beginnings of Kid as Razor's little buddy. Much better than teaming with Max friggin Moon.
Michaels in cahoots with Sunny's stable? But HBK has a female manager already... I smell a bunch of possibilities with this, from a Michaels/Steiner vs Razor/Kid fued to Michaels leaving Elizabeth for Tammy to a Steiner-Michaels fued over Tammy in the future.
Post by gentlemanjeff on Aug 12, 2010 9:53:16 GMT -5
I enjoy the Bobsleigh Team and Mack McCall because that's precisely the sort of thing you would expect to find in '94 WWF. They beat the Mad Dentist, don't they?
You gotta' be able to have fun with the undercard of a wrestling promotion. I'd rather see a couple of guys pretending to be bobsled Olympians on the B-show as opposed to Generic Southerner #84 on WCW Saturday Night.

The show opened with highlights of former Intercontinental Champions Mr. Perfect, Tatanka, Bam Bam Bigelow and Shawn Michaels in action. Two of these men will move a step closer to a shot at the Intercontinental Title by winning tonight's Golden Dream Tag Team Match.
Adam Bomb pinned Kenny Hendrix after a powerslam in 0:04:05. Rating: * 3/4
During the match, Marty Jannetty cut an insert promo in which he poked fun at the goofy mask that Harvey Wippleman is now sporting to protect his broken nose.
Gene Okerlund conducted an interview with the newest members of the WWF's tag team ranks, The Thrillseekers, Chris Jericho and Lance Storm. Storm said that they were looking forward to proving themselves against the best and proving that they are the team of the future. Jericho claimed that they will go at 100 mph, non-stop. He added that they like to live life to the edge and said they were going to rock the WWF and rock America!
Duke Droese pinned Nick Barberri with the Trash Compactor in 0:05:09. Rating: -1/2*
Vince McMahon announced that on next week's edition of Superstars, the top contenders to the WWF Tag Team Titles would be determined by the first ever Tag Team Turmoil Match. This match will consist of a series of one-fall tag team bouts, featuring the top six ranked tandems in the company. Two teams will begin the match and are replaced whenever one is eliminated, with the last team standing being named the winner.
The Hollywood Blonds then cut a promo. Steve Austin predicted that whomever wins the Tag Team Turmoil match will be sweating bullets and won't be able to sleep at night at thought of having to step in the ring with the WWF Tag Team Champions. Brian Pillman said that everybody had seen what they'd done to the Steiners and the Bulldogs and added that they don't fear anybody. He invited any team to step up to the plate and have a brush with greatness.
Duke Droese was interviewed backstage by Sean Mooney. Droese addressed the growing list of challengers to his Hardcore Title, but said that their dreams of taking the title from him would end up in the trash! Droese took the lid off his trash can to emphasise his point with a visual, but he was suddenly attacked by a flock of birds which flew out of the trash can!! Droese managed to flee the bird attack, while the Birdman's evil laugh was heard in the background.
Jeff Jarrett pinned Derrick Stone after a DDT in 0:05:13. Rating: ** 1/2
After the match, an excited Tennessee Lee cut a promo and proclaimed that Jeff Jarrett is the greatest wrestler, the greatest singer and greatest entertainer of all time. He added that the Ain't I Great Tour was in full swing. Jarrett took the mic and revealed that the greatest night of the tour would happen very soon, when he performs his brand new single - "With My Baby Tonight" - live on WWF television!
Shawn Michaels made his way out for the main event of the show, accompanied by the seductive Liz. The announcers noted that Michaels was not wearing his ring gear. The Heartbreak Kid took the mic and announced that he was pulling out of the Golden Dream Tag Team Match. Michaels said that as far as the Intercontinental Championship was concerned, he had climbed that particular mountain before. HBK felt he had bigger fish to fry and was going to move on to bigger and better things. However, Michaels revealed that he had found someone to take his place. Michaels said that his replacement tonight would be the man that beat that greaseball Razor Ramon at the King of the Ring, Scott Steiner!!
Scott Steiner entered the ring, along with a beaming Tammy Fytch. Steiner shook hands with Michaels before the Heartbreak Kid made his exit. Vince McMahon realised that this plan was apparently what Michaels and Steiner were caught discussing last Monday night and pondered whether Jack Tunney would allow this development to stand.
[Golden Dream Tag Team Match]: Mr. Perfect and Tatanka defeated Bam Bam Bigelow and Scott Steiner when Perfect pinned Bigelow after an inside cradle in 0:14:52. Rating: *** 1/4 [Tammy Fytch interfered against Tatanka.]
Scott Steiner was handed a golden opportunity for a shot at the Intercontinental Title by Shawn Michaels tonight, but ultimately his hopes were to be dashed. As Steiner tussled with Tatanka at ringside, Bam Bam Bigelow laid out Mr. Perfect in the ring. Bigelow climbed to the top rope in preparation to deliver a moonsault, but Perfect kicked the official into the ropes! Bigelow lost his balance and crotched himself on the top turnbuckle. Perfect then sent the stunned Bigelow crashing to the mat with an inside cradle for the three count, setting up a Perfect vs Tatanka singles match on next week's show.
Scott Steiner had a fit at ringside when he realised that Bam Bam Bigelow had been pinned. He stormed to the back in a rage while Tammy Fytch attempted to pacify him. Tatanka entered the ring and celebrated the win with Mr. Perfect as the fans cheered. Suddenly, Perfect kicked Tatanka in the gut and planted him with a Perfect Plex!! Perfect received a mixed ovation from the crowd while the announcers were left stunned by his actions!
Circuit information: After the show, Mr. Perfect explained his reasons for laying out Tatanka with a Perfect Plex after their match. Perfect said he was simply displaying that he is willing to do whatever it takes to earn a shot at championship gold - even stab a friend in the back. Perfect asked Tatanka not to take it personally. When asked about the incident, the Native American accepted that he had let his guard down, but vowed that it wouldn't be so easy for Perfect next week. Tatanka added that if they need to put their friendship aside until after next week's match, then so be it. The mind games have officially started ahead of next week's crucial bout!
It is Tag Team Turmoil on next week's edition of Superstars, a unique guantlet-style match that will determine the number one contenders to the WWF Tag Team Titles. The tag team division is extremely competitive in the WWF and next week one lucky team will earn the opportunity to challenge for the straps. Although we cannot confirm the six teams involved next week, we do know that the Headshrinkers have been ruled out of Tag Team Turmoil due to Samu's ankle injury.
The Birdman made his intentions clear to Duke Droese tonight - he wants a shot at the Hardcore Title. Droese was treated after the show for several cuts and scratches as a result of the bird attack.
The Thrillseekers are set to debut in two weeks on Superstars. Many mat observers are describing Chris Jericho and Lance Storm as the hottest team to come down the pike in many years and we are very excited to finally see them in action.
WWF Champion Big Van Vader is in action this coming week on Monday Night RAW, as are the Dynamite Kid and the Great Muta. Also, after Ted DiBiase put a bounty on his head, Crush will give his thoughts on the Sermon. Till then, so long everybody!

Monday Night RAW July 18th, 1994 Fernwood Resort, Bushkill, PA Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
As Black Friday Management made their way out for the opening contest, Vince McMahon announced that WWF Champion Big Van Vader would be in action later. Bobby Heenan pondered how Vader would react now that his SummerSlam match with The Undertaker is now official.
Great Muta pinned Jim Powers with the Moonsault Press in 0:04:10. Rating: **
The Great Muta looked very impressive again here tonight on Monday Night RAW. Muta scored with a mule kick in the corner, a missile dropkick and an enzuigiri which sent Jim Powers to the floor. Muta followed up with a pescado and a nice handspring elbow on the outside! The moonsault finished things at just over four minutes.
During the match, Owen Hart called in and said that he had not forgotten about the unprovoked assault he had suffered at the hands of the Great Muta and Black Friday Management. The Rocket promised to return very soon and settle the score.
A vignette aired hyping up the debut of NASCAR driver turned wrestler Bob "Spark Plugg" Holly. Holly said that when he comes to the WWF, he'll be going wide open, pedal to the metal!
Footage was shown from two weeks ago on Superstars of the Beverly Brothers defeating the Headshrinkers. Samu suffered an injured ankle during the course of the bout; tonight Fatu is out for revenge on behalf of his tag team partner as he takes on Blake Beverly.
Before this singles bout could even begin, Beau Beverly took out Fatu's knee from behind with a chopblock! Beau was promptly ejected from ringside by the official, but the damage had been done.
Blake Beverly made Fatu submit to a figure-four leglock in 0:05:16. Rating: 3/4*
Fatu was easy pickings for Blake Beverly following Beau's pre-match attack. Blake relentlessly worked over Fatu's knee and finally made him submit to a figure-four leglock.
Beau returned to the ring after the match and joined his brother in putting the boots to Fatu, while Tammy Fytch looked on with glee. The Beverly Brothers put an exclamation point on their beatdown by drilling Fatu with the Shaker Heights Spike. Fytch took the mic and said that this ruthless aggression shown by the Beverlys will make them Tag Team Champions very soon!
Crush was this week's guest on Friar Ferguson's Sermon interview show. Crush addressed the bounty placed on his head by Ted DiBiase and admitted that he didn't know who he could trust anymore. The big Hawaiian couldn't be sure who his friends are or who his enemies are, but refused to be intimidated by the Million Dollar Man. Suddenly, the Quebecers - led by Jimmy Hart - entered the arena and attacked Crush! The Mouth of the South was evidently after the cash that DiBiase is offering. Jacques and Pierre threw Crush into the ring and continued to do a number on him. They went for a double clothesline, but Crush ducked out of the way and floored the Quebecers with a double dropkick!! Crush clotheslined Pierre out of the ring and then press slammed Jacques over the top rope onto his partner at ringside!! Jimmy Hart and the Quebecers scurried to the back to lick their wounds, while Crush whipped the crowd into a frenzy!!
Dynamite Kid pinned Tito Santana with the Diving Dynamite Headbutt in 0:06:59. Rating: ** 1/2
This was an uptempo, intense, hard-hitting performance from the Dynamite Kid, in his first outing as a singles performer. He completely outclassed former Intercontinental Champion Tito Santana in this contest. Dynamite avoided Santana's Mexican Hammer and almost decapitated Tito with a vicious hook clothesline! Dynamite then executed a superplex on Santana and put him away with a diving headbutt.
While his new manager Tammy Fytch applauded his victory, Dynamite Kid took the mic after the match. He proclaimed that the Dynamite Kid was dead and from here on in wanted to be known by his real name, Tom Billington. Billington said he was on a mission to win singles gold and prove that he was the real talent in the British Bulldogs. Billington vowed to become the very first English WWF Champion.
Razor Ramon was interviewed backstage by Gene Okerlund. The Intercontinental Champion addressed Scott Steiner's accusations that the Bad Guy has been dodging him. Ramon said that he can only defend the title against whomever the matchmakers put in front of him. However, the Bad Guy warned Steiner that when the two men do meet again, the Razor will cut him up!!
Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan previewed the intriguing Tag Team Turmoil match, due to take place this weekend on Superstars, which will determine the number one contenders to the Tag Team Championship. The announcers deliberated over which six teams would feature in the contest. Just then, McMahon received word from Jack Tunney's office that the Beverly Brothers have been thrown out of Tag Team Turmoil as a consequence of their vicious attacks on the Headshrinkers in recent weeks!! Heenan thought he could heard Tammy Fytch screaming already!
Handicap-Match: Big Van Vader defeated Duane Gill and Barry Dougherty when Vader pinned B. Dougherty with the Vader Bomb in 0:03:12. Rating: ** 3/4
After the match, Harley Race dragged out a bodybag from underneath the ring and Big Van Vader stuffed Barry Dougherty into it! Vader and Race were sending out a clear message to the Undertaker as the Mastodon nailed the helpless Dougherty with another Vader Bomb! Harley Race took the mic and proclaimed Vader to be the greatest athlete on the face of God's green earth! He claimed that the myth of the Deadman will be destroyed at SummerSlam. Big Van Vader yelled that The Undertaker has a date with destiny. Vader invited the Phenom to his White Castle of Fear at SummerSlam, where he promised to teach the pain game to The Undertaker!
Circuit information: It is sure to be a legendary battle at SummerSlam when The Undertaker and Big Van Vader collide over the WWF Championship. The Undertaker made his title intentions clear at WrestleMania, while Vader finally realised his dream of becoming WWF Champion at the King of the Ring and isn't about to give up the title without a fight!
Tammy Fytch has brought out a more vicious and diabolical side to the Beverly Brothers since they joined up with Fytch Wrestling Enterprises, but it has come at a price. The Beverlys have been kicked out of Tag Team Turmoil this weekend on Superstars due to their recent assaults on the Headshrinkers. The Headshrinkers themselves are unable to compete in Tag Team Turmoil thanks to Samu's ankle injury which was suffered at the hands of Beau and Blake. WWF President Jack Tunney decided to apply reciprocal justice in this situation.
The Quebecers were unsuccessful at claiming Ted DiBiase's $50,000 bounty tonight, but from what we can gather there is no shortage of superstars queuing up to try and take out Crush.
It is a momentous edition of WWF Superstars this weekend as the number one contenders to both the Tag Team Titles and the Intercontinental Title will be determined. The winners of the first ever Tag Team Turmoil match will earn the right to challenge the Hollywood Blonds for their gold, while Mr. Perfect and Tatanka will put their friendship aside to battle it out for a crack at Razor Ramon's Intercontinental strap!! Make sure you do not miss this action-packed show! Till then, so long everybody!!
