Loser-Leaves-Town Cage Match: Davey Boy Smith defeated Tom Billington by escaping the cage in 0:26:00. Rating: *** [Tammy Fytch interfered against Davey Boy Smith.]
Tom Billington offered a handshake at the outset of this contest. Davey Boy Smith was suspicious of Billington's motives and refused, so Billington responded with a boot to the midsection and began ruthlessly attacking Smith's injured ribs, revealing that he had been in on Tammy Fytch's plan all along! Fytch looked extremely pleased with herself at ringside as Billington began stomping Smith's hands. Dynamite made the first escape attempt but Smith dragged him back down. Billington used a nice gutwrench suplex and almost made it out, but Davey Boy caught him going over the top and hit a back suplex to the mat. Smith crawled for the door but Billington caught him and whipped him into the other corner, doing further damage to the ribs. Billington executed a snap suplex but missed a kneedrop off the top. The announcers feared that Dynamite had blown out his knee but Smith had no such concerns, going to work on the injured body part. Smith tried to climb out but Billington caught him and both men fought on the top rope. Smith kicked Billington off and connected with a beautiful flying dropkick. Smith began climbing again, but Billington took him down with a modified Samoan drop. Billington used a piledriver on Smith and started climbing. Davey Boy met him at the top and a slugfest led to both men collapsing to the mat below, exhausted. With Tammy Fytch urging him on Billington dragged himself towards the door, but Smith grabbed his legs and slingshotted him into the cage wall! Billington fired back with stiff European uppercuts and laid out his former partner with a release German suplex. Dynamite made it up to the top rope and began ascending the cage, but Smith stopped him at the last second and superplexed him back in!
The crowd was absolutely losing it as Davey Boy Smith again began crawling for the door. Tom Billington wasn't moving as Smith got closer and closer to escaping. Suddenly, Tammy Fytch went into her handbag and produced a can of hairspray, which she used to blind the official in charge of the door! Fytch shoved the referee out of the way and then smashed the cage door into Davey Boy's head! The fans were having a collective heart attack as Smith lay out cold on the canvas! Billington climbed to the top of the cage, but then looked down at Smith and hesitated, much to the chagrin of his manager. Fytch was screaming at Billington to climb over and down to safety, but Billington decided to further punish his former partner with a diving headbutt from the top of the cage! At the last split-second Smith moved out of the way and Billington connected hard with the mat! The crowd were going crazy with both men laid out on the mat. Eventually, both men began to stir, with Smith seemingly in better condition than Billington. Smith lifted up Billington in position for a powerslam, but rammed Dynamite into the cage wall twice before driving him down hard to the canvas with his signature manoeuvre! Smith then started climbing over the cage. Sensing her meal ticket was slipping away, Tammy Fytch scrambled into the ring and desperately tried to drag Billington's body out through the door. Her attempts were in vain though as Davey Boy successfully made it over the cage to the floor, thereby ending his former tag team partner's WWF career.
After the match, Tammy Fytch threw a major strop. She lashed out at Tom Billington for his performance while stomping up and down like a petulant child. Fytch then proceeded to fire Billington and stormed out of the cage to the back, beside herself with rage!
Footage was shown from this past week on Monday Night RAW recapping WWF Champion Big Van Vader's shocking assault of Mean Gene Okerlund. Jim Ross revealed that there will be serious repercussions for Vader following his actions and said an announcement from WWF President Jack Tunney is imminent. Ross added that Okerlund was now convalescing at home, but noted that we will not be seeing the popular announcer for some time. Ross also gave out an address for fans to extend their get well wishes to Mean Gene.
Elimination Match: Black Friday Management (Great Muta, Ludvig Borga, Manuel, Taz and Victor) beat Big Boss Man, Crush, Marty Jannetty, Owen Hart and Randy Savage 5 falls to 3: x Taz beat Jannetty via a belly-to-belly superplex in 0:10:50 x L. Borga beat Boss Man via the Rack and Ruin in 0:13:26 x O. Hart beat Manuel via the Rocket Launcher in 0:16:55 x Savage beat Victor via a flying axhandle in 0:17:20 x Muta beat Savage via countout in 0:22:05 x O. Hart beat Taz via a small package in 0:24:46 x Muta beat O. Hart via a backbreaker in 0:27:39 x L. Borga beat Crush via a rabbit punch in 0:32:46 Survivors: Great Muta, Ludvig Borga Rating: ***
Marty Jannetty was the first casualty of this contest, unable to survive a wicked overhead belly-to-belly suplex from the new Hardcore Champion, Taz. The Big Boss Man looked good when he was in against Ludvig Borga, but Taz tripped the former corrections officer as he bounced off the ropes and Borga overwhelmed the Boss Man with a flurry of stiff punches. The Hellraiser From Helsinki then planted Boss Man with the Rack and Ruin, eliminating him from the fray. Black Friday Management's two man advantage did not last long as The Arabian Butchers were sent packing in quick succession by Owen Hart and Randy Savage. The match then broke down into a six man brawl which both officials struggled to control. Randy Savage and the Great Muta - who were also on opposite sides at last year's Survivor Series - went at it on the floor, where Muta spewed mist in the Macho Man's eyes! Blinded, Savage toppled over the guardrail and into the crowd, where he was subsequently counted out. Crush went to assist his friend the Macho Man leaving Owen Hart to battle Taz.
Taz ducked under a leapfrog and hit Owen Hart with an Aztecan suplex and a head and arm suplex, before slapping on the Tazmission. However, the Rocket's legs were caught up in the ropes and the referee tapped Taz on the shoulder to tell him to break the hold. Taz thought that Owen had submitted, then grew frustrated when the referee informed him that it was a rope break. Taz went back over to the Rocket, but was caught in a tight small package for the three count for a massive pop! Taz, furious at the sight of Owen getting his hand raised, decked The Rocket with a vicious lariat and hammered him with crossfaces! Taz assaulted Owen with a barrage of suplexes until a nightstick-wielding Big Boss Man returned to the ring and ran Taz off! Following the frenzied attack by Taz, Owen was now easy pickings for the Great Muta, who pinned the Rocket after a roundhouse kick and a backbreaker. Crush was now at a 2-on-1 disadvantage against Muta and Ludvig Borga, but the big Hawaiian refused to admit defeat. Crush Gorilla Pressed Muta and threw him into Borga, before drilling the Hellraiser from Helsinki with an inverted atomic drop and a dropkick. Crush went to the outside and floored Borga to with a clothesline, before returning to the ring and executing a backbreaker on Muta. The Original Hawaiian Punch connected with a legdrop and then caught Muta in the Cranium Crunch! Crush squeezed for all he was worth while the official desperately tried to explain that Muta wasn't the legal man! Borga then blasted Crush with a devastating punch to the back of the head and then covered the big Hawaiian to win the bout for his team!
Before the upcoming Tag Team Title Ladder Match Jim Ross announced that following their victory in the tag team elimination match this past week on Monday Night RAW, the Beverly Brothers have been named the number one contenders to the titles.
Ladder Match: The Thrillseekers (Chris Jericho and Lance Storm) defeated The Hollywood Blonds (Steve Austin and Brian Pillman) in 0:20:42. Rating: *** 1/4 (The Thrillseekers won the WWF World Tag Team Titles.)
A donnybrook erupted at the opening bell before Steve Austin made the first attempt to get one of the huge ladders stationed around ringside. He was foiled by Chris Jericho, who dove onto Austin with a plancha which crushed Austin under the ladder. Lance Storm pinned Brian Pillman into the corner with a ladder and dropkicked it. Storm made an attempt to retrieve the belts but Austin pushed the ladder over. Pillman hit Jericho with a neckbreaker off the ladder. Storm went up but got power bombed by Austin. Pillman started climbing but Jericho leapt off the top rope with a springboard dropkick which knocked Pillman off. The Hollywood Blonds slammed Jericho onto the ladder and then clotheslined Storm with it. Pillman splashed the ladder with Storm lying underneath, doing damage to himself as well as the Thrillseeker. The Blonds sandwiched Jericho with the ladder. Austin and Pillman attempted to superplex Jericho onto the ladder, but Storm made the save and battled with Pillman. Jericho then took the opportunity to use the ladder as a seesaw and whacked both Blonds in the face! Pillman and Storm battled on top of the ladder and Storm hiptossed him off. Storm went up but Austin returned to the ring armed with another ladder and knocked Storm off with it. Austin and Jericho teased a ladder duel, but Jericho simply dropped his and dropkicked Austin's ladder back into him. Two ladders were set up and all four men went up. During the course of the battle, Pillman and Jericho tipped over and slingshotted themselves off the top rope! Austin and Storm tilted the other way before also crashing to the mat. The ladders were set up again and Austin shoved Storm off their ladder, resulting in Storm bouncing off the ropes and knocking over Jericho and Pillman's ladder! As the ladder fell, Jericho stepped onto Austin's ladder, knocked him off and grabbed the title belts to win the match! The Thrillseekers are the new WWF World Tag Team Champions!
The crowd gave the new champions a well-deserved standing ovation after the match. All four men will be feeling the effects of this brutal contest for a long time to come!
After each team had made their entrance for the next Survivor Series elimination match, Razor Ramon took the microphone and addressed the numerical disadvantage that his team was facing. Ramon said that he had found a replacement for the injured Man Mountain Rock. Without any further ado Ramon brought out his mystery partner, and it was none other than the returning Bret "Hitman" Hart! The crowd went absolutely nuts when Hart's music hit and grew even louder as The Hitman walked down the aisle! Shawn Michaels' team were up in arms as Bret Hart joined his partners in the ring. This was the Hitman's surprise return to action since tearing his ACL back in April.
Elimination Match: Shawn Michaels, Scott Steiner, Mr. Perfect, Adam Bomb and Jeff Jarrett beat Tatanka, Razor Ramon, Lightning Kid, Bam Bam Bigelow and Bret Hart 5 falls to 4: x B. Hart beat J. Jarrett via the Sharpshooter in 0:13:54 x A. Bomb beat Bigelow via a cross-body block in 0:15:18 x Perfect beat B. Hart via countout in 0:22:02 x Tatanka beat Perfect via the End of the Trail in 0:23:27 x S. Steiner beat Tatanka via the SSD in 0:28:25 x Kid beat S. Steiner via the Lightning Bolt in 0:31:13 x A. Bomb beat Kid via the Atom Smasher in 0:34:42 x Ramon beat A. Bomb via the Razor's Edge in 0:38:19 x Michaels beat Ramon via a superkick in 0:39:00 Survivors: Shawn Michaels Rating: *** 1/2 [Bad News Brown interfered against Bret Hart.] [Harvey Wippleman interfered against Bam Bam Bigelow.]
Bret Hart showed no sign of ring rust whatsoever despite his seven month layoff. The fans had to wait until around the twelve minute mark for Hart to tag in, where he immediately ran through Jeff Jarrett with a backbreaker and an elbowdrop from the second turnbuckle. The Hitman then locked Jarrett in the Sharpshooter and Double J was the first man eliminated. Bam Bam Bigelow and Adam Bomb resumed their feud and they took the fight to outside the ring, where Bigelow bashed Bomb's head off the ring steps. Bigelow rolled back in to break the count and then attempted to suplex Bomb back in, but Harvey Wippleman hooked Bigelow's leg and the Beast from the East was pinned! Bigelow was not happy and did not leave quietly. The exchanges between Bret Hart and Mr Perfect were fantastic and evoked memories of their superlative encounter at SummerSlam '91. Perfect sent the Hitman to the outside with a dropkick and Hart appeared to tweak his left knee. As the Hitman walked around gingerly at ringside, a man in a black hooded sweatshirt hopped the guardrail and shoved Hart into the ringpost! The figure pulled down the hood, revealing Bad News Brown! Bad News was booed out of the building as he climbed back over the rail and left through the crowd. Following the ambush by Bad News, Bret Hart was counted out, much to the disgust of the fans in attendance.
Mr Perfect celebrated his count out victory by climbing to the second turnbuckle and gloating at Bret Hart, who was being helped to the back by a referee. Perfect was so wrapped up in the moment that he did not notice Tatanka climb up behind him! Tatanka hoisted Perfect onto his shoulders and brought him crashing down with a devastating End of the Trial from the second rope! Tatanka then finally recorded a pinfall over his great foe to restore his team's one man advantage. However, the Native American was next to hit the showers following Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner's wicked screwdriver. The Lightning Kid attacked Steiner with martial arts kicks, but Steiner swatted him away and overpowered the Kid. Steiner laid out the Kid with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex and tilt-a-whirl slam. Steiner sent the Kid towards the corner, but the youngster ran up the turnbuckles and leapt off with a moonsault bodyblock for the three count out of nowhere!! The crowd erupted at the upset as the Kid celebrated with Razor Ramon! Tammy Fytch was in complete disbelief while Steiner had to be restrained by the officials and dragged to the back.
Lightning did not strike twice for the Kid, pardon the pun, as he was dismissed by Adam Bomb and the Atom Smasher. Shawn Michaels, who had successfully dodged Razor Ramon for the entire bout so far, looked concerned as Bomb prepared to lock up with the Bad Guy. Bomb used a powerslam, a slingshot clothesline and a belly-to-back suplex, but Ramon - who was determined to get his hands on Michaels after almost three months of waiting - refused to stay down. The Creation of Devastation sent Ramon in for a backdrop, but Ramon countered with a kneelift and hit the Razor's Edge for the three count! However, as soon as Ramon made it back to his feet, Michaels was waiting for him. The Heartbreak Kid dropped Ramon with a vicious superkick and pinned the Bad Guy, emerging as the sole survivor for his team.
Just as the bell was about to sound for the main event, "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and his bodyguard, "The Widowmaker" Barry Windham, appeared in the crowd. The duo hadn't been seen since SummerSlam and the announcers questioned why they had decided to show up now. DiBiase bought front row seats off some fans and he and Windham took their places at ringside for the WWF Title Match.
Casket Match: The Undertaker defeated Big Van Vader in 0:23:10. Rating: *** 1/2 (The Undertaker won the WWF World Heavyweight Title.) [Harley Race interfered against The Undertaker.]
The Undertaker started this Casket Match aggressively, asserting himself with high impact manoeuvres. A ropewalk forearm smash and a big boot sent Big Van Vader out over the top rope and onto the casket, where the WWF Champion quickly scrambled off! Vader composed himself and returned to the ring, where he ducked out of the way of a flying clothesline from the Deadman. Vader sent The Undertaker flying off the ring apron and into the guardrail with a body avalanche. Outside the ring, Vader smashed the challenger's head off the timekeeper's table repeatedly, attempting to do further damage to his face. Vader lifted up the steel steps in order to administer further punishment, but 'Taker kicked them back into the champion's face! The Undertaker drove a steel chair into Vader's gut and smacked it across the Mastodon's massive back. 'Taker then went after Harley Race which allowed Vader to seize the advantage. He lifted The Undertaker up and rammed the small of his back into the ringpost.
Back in the ring, Big Van Vader drilled The Undertaker with a belly-to-belly suplex and a powerslam. Vader crushed the challenger with a big splash from the second rope and tried to roll The Undertaker into the casket, but The Undertaker blocked it. Vader choked out The Undertaker with a length of electrical cable and again attempted to stuff him into the casket, but again it was blocked. The bout broke down into a knock-down drag-out affair, with both men trading heavy blows. The Undertaker landed a flying clothesline, but Vader came back with an avalanche and a lariat. The Mastodon splashed The Undertaker and prepared to hit the Vader Bomb, but Harley Race told his man to go up to the top rope instead! Vader went for a moonsault, but The Undertaker rolled out of the way!
The building was absolutely rocking for The Undertaker's comeback! The challenger attempted a choke slam but Vader kicked him low, breaking 'Taker's grip. The champion looked for the Vader Bomb again but The Deadman sat up and gave Vader a low blow! The Undertaker brought Vader crashing down to the mat with a choke slam off the ropes and signalled for the finish. The Man from the Darkside proceeded to hook Vader in a dragon sleeper and applied a bodyscissors for good measure, while Paul Bearer repeatedly wailed the word "deadlock"! Vader desperately tried to fight it, but was soon turning blue and then ultimately passed out in the hold! The casket was opened and The Undertaker methodically rolled the dead weight of Big Van Vader into the casket. 'Taker went to shut the lid, but he was jumped from behind by Harley Race! Race's blows had no affect on The Undertaker, who grabbed Race around the throat! The Undertaker planted Harley Race with a Tombstone, much to the joy of the crowd, and then dumped Vader's manager in the casket with him! The Undertaker slammed the lid shut on the casket to win the match and capture his second WWF Championship!
The Undertaker went down on one knee and posed with the WWF Championship as the crowd chanted his name. Ted DiBiase was shown in the front row standing up and applauding the result of the Casket Match. Lightning flashed and thunder began to rumble around the arena. The new WWF Champion dedicated his win to his creatures of the night as the show drew to a close.
Card rating: *** 1/2
Circuit information: We witnessed a changing of the guard here tonight at Survivor Series as The Undertaker finally dethroned Big Van Vader and took his rightful place as WWF Champion. The Phenom put out Vader with the Deadlock, his new submission finisher, and rolled him into the casket, before Tombstoning Harley Race and dumping him into the casket as well for good measure. It was a decisive end to an extremely physical and brutal encounter and when the smoke had cleared it was The Undertaker who was left standing tall.
We are trying to get word on why Ted DiBiase and Barry Windham came out to get a closer look at the main event tonight. DiBiase and Windham haven't been seen since The Widowmaker dropped a Stretcher Match to Crush at SummerSlam. Neither man was available for comment after the show.
There are unconfirmed reports that Big Van Vader was hit with a suspension following tonight's event. We believe this is in relation to the assault on Gene Okerlund this past Monday. Expect our esteemed president Jack Tunney to make an announcement very soon.
Bret Hart received a HUGE pop for his surprise appearance tonight! The Hitman came back much earlier than expected from a torn ACL and he did not miss a beat, eliminating Jeff Jarrett with the Sharpshooter. However, Hart's triumphant return was quickly ruined by Bad News Brown, who turned up out of nowhere and drove the Hitman into the ringpost! Brown left the arena just as soon as he arrived, but Hart has vowed to hunt Bad News down and make him pay.
Throughout the entire forty minute elimination bout, Razor Ramon still did not manage to get his hands on Shawn Michaels. The Heartbreak Kid spent the duration of the contest avoiding the Bad Guy, going so far as to tag out when Ramon was the legal man! Michaels appeared to have no escape when Ramon outlasted a hard-fought battle with Adam Bomb to set up a showdown with the Heartbreak Kid. However, after Ramon had pinned Bomb, Michaels capitalised with a superkick to pin the exhausted Bad Guy and win the match for his team.
WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner suffered an embarrassing pinfall loss to the Lightning Kid this evening. Steiner appeared to be in complete control of the Kid, but when he sent him into the corner the Lightning Kid ran up the turnbuckles and struck with the Lightning Bolt to capture the three count. If this had occurred in a singles contest, we would have been crowning a new Intercontinental Champion.
This capped off a very bad night for Tammy Fytch after Davey Boy Smith ran Tom Billington out of the company. Smith outlasted his former tag team partner in a gruelling steel cage match which fans will be talking about for many years to come. Fytch went berserk after the bout, publicly berating Billington and firing him from her stable.
New Tag Team Champions were crowned tonight as The Thrillseekers defeated The Hollywood Blonds in an innovative, death-defying ladder match. Both teams took so many chances tonight and will certainly never be the same after coming through this incredibly dangerous bout. Although battered and bruised, Chris Jericho and Lance Storm will feel that it was worth the prize.
Gary Hart's Black Friday Management got the better of Strength in Numbers in an elimination match that was not without controversy. Macho Man Randy Savage was counted out after being blinded by the Great Muta's potent green mist and Owen Hart was destroyed by Taz after the One Man Crime Spree refused to leave quietly when the Rocket surprised him with a small package. Crush ended up at a two-on-one disadvantage against Muta and Ludvig Borga. The Big Hawaiian thought he had evened things up when he caught Muta in the Cranium Crunch. However, Muta was not the legal man and Crush succumbed to a vicious rabbit punch - a move which is illegal in boxing - from Borga. Do not believe for one second that Crush is finished with the Hellraiser from Helsinki.
Thank you all for joining us this evening for the 1994 Survivor Series! Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving and we'll see you again at Monday Night RAW!

Good show. Feels like it brought closure to the story that began at King of the Ring. That was the issue with SummerSlam--it was the Empire Strikes Back of this arc; a big part of the story but unsatisfying on its own. It's a heck of a trilogy when put together, plus with Hart back in the mix, who knows. Undertaker v. Hitman at WM11? Certainly would have been a big deal at the time.

Monday Night RAW November 28th, 1994 Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, NY Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
Tonight's edition of Monday Night RAW began with a video package highlighting The Undertaker defeating WWF Champion Big Van Vader to win the title and The Thrillseekers becoming the new WWF Tag Team Champions at Survivor Series.
The scene then cut to WWF President Jack Tunney's office. Tunney announced that following Big Van Vader's actions last week where he brutally assaulted Gene Okerlund, the Mastodon was currently serving a 60 day suspension! Tunney added that this suspension came into effect immediately after Vader lost the WWF Championship at Survivor Series. Tunney decreed that from now on, if any WWF superstar puts their hands on an announcer they will be hit with an indefinite suspension!
Jerry Lawler's guests this week in the King's Court were the new WWF Tag Team Champions, The Thrillseekers! Chris Jericho and Lance Storm were given a tremendous ovation as they limped down to the ring, still showing the effects of the dangerous ladder match at Survivor Series. Lawler described Jericho and Storm as the walking wounded and couldn't understand how they were even standing upright! Jericho admitted that the ladder match had taken its toll on him and Storm and that they are battered, bruised and sore, but in the end it was worth it to become the new Tag Team Champions! Storm said that although they were hurting, it felt great to be standing out here in front of the fans with the gold around their waists. The crowd roared their approval for the new champions. Lawler acknowledged the crowd's congratulations, but added there are some other people who want to congratulate the new champs. The King then introduced the Beverly Brothers, along with their manager Tammy Fytch!
The contingent from Fytch Wrestling Enterprises entered the ring to a chorus of boos. Tammy Fytch sarcastically congratulated The Thrillseekers on winning the "climbing contest" at Survivor Series. Fytch said that last week on Monday Night RAW, the Beverly Brothers were the sole survivors in an elimination match, thus proving that they are the best tag team in the company and are now officially the new number one contenders to the Tag Team Titles. Fytch wanted to know when her men were getting their title shot. Lance Storm said that he and Jericho wouldn't duck any challenges and would face the Beverlys any time, any where! Fytch asked how about later tonight, or were the Thrillseekers going to hide behind their supposed injuries? Jerry Lawler joined in on the goading, saying that if Jericho and Storm were any kind of fighting champions, they'd take the match! Fytch doubted that they were man enough to accept. The Thrillseekers took the bait and accepted the match with the Beverly Brothers for the titles later tonight, while Vince McMahon questioned the new champions' frame of mind for taking this bout so soon after the brutal war with the Hollywood Blonds at Survivor Series!
Bret Hart made Who submit to the Sharpshooter in 0:04:16. Rating: **
After the match, Todd Pettengill ran out to grab a word with Bret Hart, who was returning to Monday Night RAW tonight after seven months out with a knee injury. The Hitman cut a promo on Bad News Brown, accusing him of ruining his comeback at Survivor Series. Hart said that Bad News has been a thorn in his side for years and expressed his desire to end this feud once and for all. The Hitman challenged Brown to an "I Quit" Match, where anything goes and the only way to win is to make your opponent say the words "I Quit". Hart said that while he was rehabilitating from his knee injury, every time he turned on WWF TV all he heard was Bad News Brown complaining, blaming his losses on everybody else and crying racism. When all is said and done, the Hitman said, Bad News will lose because Hart made him say "I Quit" - not because of the colour of his skin!
Scotty Flamingo pinned John Paul with the Point Break in 0:04:43. Rating: 1/2*
After the break, Vince McMahon introduced the new WWF champion, The Undertaker. The Deadman was led out by Paul Bearer and they joined McMahon in the ring. Vince waited for the cheers to die down before congratulating The Undertaker. 'Taker welcomed the creatures of the night to the dark days of the World Wrestling Federation. He dedicated the title to his creatures and promised to fight for them.
The interview was interrupted by an infamous laugh followed by Ted DiBiase's music as the Million Dollar Man strode down to the ring, flanked by his bodyguard Barry Windham. DiBiase offered his applause to the confused WWF Champion as Vince McMahon asked DiBiase to give his reasons for coming out here. DiBiase said that he has been watching the Undertaker's career very closely over the years. The Million Dollar Man admitted that he felt a great sense of pride when the Deadman captured the title at Survivor Series, for it was he that brought The Undertaker to the WWF four years ago. DiBiase credited himself for making the Undertaker and helping him become the champion that he is today. DiBiase said that there will always be a bond between he and The Undertaker, a bond that was formed even before Paul Bearer came along, a bond that was formed through trust. Trust that gave The Undertaker the confidence to confide a secret to him all those years ago…
Suddenly, The Undertaker cut Ted DiBiase off by grabbing him around the throat and backing him into the corner! Barry Windham snatched The Undertaker's arm away and the Deadman went nose-to-nose with The Widowmaker while DiBiase escaped under the bottom rope. DiBiase and Windham left together as the Million Dollar Man rubbed his neck. DiBiase yelled that he would reveal the secret to the world while Paul Bearer did his best to appease the WWF Champion.
The Supermodels - Rick Martel and Raphael - were excited to announce that they would be presenting and starring in a fashion show this weekend on Superstars! Martel said that everyone will be able to see exclusive new collections walked down the runway by the sexiest models in the industry today - himself and Raphael!
Another video package aired which hyped the upcoming debut of Public Enemy - "Flyboy" Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge.
The Beverly Brothers (Beau Beverly and Blake Beverly) defeated The Thrillseekers (Chris Jericho and Lance Storm) when Blake pinned L. Storm with the Powerslam in 0:13:54. Rating: ** 3/4 (The Beverly Brothers won the WWF World Tag Team Titles.) [Tammy Fytch interfered against Lance Storm.] [Tammy Fytch interfered against Chris Jericho.]
New WWF Tag Team Champions The Thrillseekers had the better of the opening exchanges in this contest. Chris Jericho took out Beau with a dropkick while Lance Storm hit a bodypress off the middle rope on Blake. Jericho used a monkey flip on Beau but when he went for a second, Tammy Fytch held on to Beau's arm and Jericho took the bump. The Beverly Brothers went on the offence, slowing the bout down to a methodical, workmanlike pace. They targeted Jericho's back, which had endured serious punishment during the course of the ladder match at Survivor Series. Blake held Jericho for Beau to hit a flying sledge across the back. Blake puts Jericho in a Boston Crab and Beau dropped an elbow on him. Jericho absorbed more double teaming in the Beverly corner, but he managed to fight out of a Blake bearhug and reversed a suplex! Beau missed a legdrop and Jericho hit a Frankensteiner, before tagging in to the fresh Lance Storm! Storm connected with an enzuigiri and a spin kick. The champions went for a variation on the Hart Attack, with Jericho using a dropkick instead of a clothesline, but Beau saved his brother. The Thrillseekers climbed the turnbuckles in preparation to deliver the Sudden Impact, but Tammy Fytch took the referee while Beau grabbed Jericho's leg. Jericho kicked Beau off and chased him, allowing Blake to crotch the distracted Storm on the top rope! Blake followed up with a powerslam on Storm for the pin and the titles!
The fans were stunned at the outcome of the match as Tammy Fytch gleefully snatched the title belts from the timekeeper's table and presented them to her men. Fytch and the Beverlys were joined in the ring by their stablemate, WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner. The show closed with Fytch Wrestling Enterprises celebrating while Chris Jericho helped Lance Storm back to the locker room.
Circuit information: Following the shocking events of tonight's edition of Monday Night RAW, every superstar in Fytch Wrestling Enterprises now holds championship gold. The Thrillseekers were seriously weakened after their gruelling battle with the Hollywood Blonds at Survivor Series and the Beverly Brothers seized their opportunity this evening. Tammy Fytch was like a shark that smells blood in the water and challenged Chris Jericho and Lance Storm to put their newly won titles on the line, a challenge that the proud Canadians were left with little choice but to accept. Even then it took skulduggery from Fytch to ensure that Beau and Blake captured the titles for the first time, but you can bet that The Thrillseekers will be determined to regain the gold they worked so hard to win in the first place.
What could be the dark secret from The Undertaker's past that Ted DiBiase knows about? The whole world is interested in hearing it, but it is apparent that if The Undertaker has his way that will never, ever happen.
Bret Hart has challenged Bad News Brown to an I Quit Match with the intention of drawing a line under their bitter rivalry. There is a lot at stake in this type of bout as the aim is to make your opponent utter those two little humiliating words. We are yet to receive confirmation that Bad News has accepted the bout.
Make sure you tune in this weekend for Superstars where we will bring you two outstanding singles bouts! First, fresh off his sole surviving performance at Survivor Series, Shawn Michaels will take on Max Moon! Then, the Big Boss Man and new Hardcore Champion Taz will finally clash one on one! Plus, Ludvig Borga will be in action and the Supermodels will present and star in their very own fashion show! Till then, so long everybody!!

Just wanna say, I've been following this circuit since the old forum, and I love it. Love it lots. It's a major inspiration for the circuit I ran before my computer died (though I can still save it if I ever get another PC).

WWF Superstars December 3rd, 1994 Fernwood Resort, Bushkill, PA Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
The show opened with footage from the March 12th edition of Superstars. It featured one of the biggest upsets of the year as Max Moon defeated Shawn Michaels with a roll up following a distraction from Randy Savage. Tonight, Michaels gets his chance to avenge that loss as he faces Moon once again.
Shawn Michaels pinned Max Moon with the Piledriver in 0:12:28. Rating: *** 3/4 [Liz interfered against Max Moon.]
Max Moon used his quickness to get the upper hand on Shawn Michaels in this bout, but the tide turned when Liz pulled Michaels out of harm's way when Moon went for a flying sitdown splash off the ring apron. Moon hit the ground hard and Michaels took over. The Heartbreak Kid looked out at the crowd with disdain as they chanted for Razor Ramon. Moon came back with a spinning heel kick in the corner and a somersault slam. Moon went for a rolling reverse cradle, but Michaels held on to the top rope and dropped Moon with a superkick. A piledriver then finished Moon off.
After the match, Shawn Michaels threw Max Moon over the top rope and took the microphone. Liz joined her man as Michaels bragged that at Survivor Series, he proved once again that when compared to Razor Ramon, the Heartbreak Kid is the better man. Michaels claimed that he was officially through with the Bad Guy and was now focussing on capturing the big one - the WWF Championship. The Heartbreak Kid officially announced that he will be entering the 1995 Royal Rumble. Michaels vowed to win the match and go on to defeat the WWF Champion at WrestleMania!
A video recapping the brewing feud between newly crowned WWF Hardcore Champion Taz and the Big Boss Man was shown. These two superstars will meet in the main event of the show.
Ludvig Borga pinned Jeff Hardy with the Rack and Ruin in 0:05:48. Rating: 1/4*
During the match, Crush cut an insert promo in which he addressed his defeat to Ludvig Borga at Survivor Series via a punch to the back of the head. Crush said that in America, real men fight with courage and honour and don't attack from behind like cowards. Crush challenged Borga to find the guts to square off with him face to face.
When the show returned from commercial, the entrance way had been set up with mannequins displaying a wide variety of items. This meant only one thing - it was time for the Supermodels' fashion show! Rick Martel and Raphael emerged from the back looking terribly excited in their custom-made silk Armani suits. Martel professed his delight at hosting this event which will showcase upcoming clothing lines from the world's most famous designers, such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana and Armani. Martel claimed that the biggest names in fashion had begged he and Raphael to model their latest collections, as everybody wants a piece of the most in-demand models in the world today! He continued that there could be no other choice than he and Raphael, two men that enjoy the finer things in life. They wear only custom-made suits, stay in only the most luxurious hotels and frequent only the finest gourmet restaurants. Their hair is styled by the world's most expensive hair designers and they also enjoy manicures and pedicures!
Rick Martel began to wax lyrical over the craftsmanship and detail of each piece that he and Raphael were wearing, before the Supermodels started to strut their stuff down the aisle which had become their catwalk. The fans had grown tired extremely quickly of the exhibition and were not shy in voicing their disapproval. Martel and Raphael were too busy striking poses for the cameras to worry about the reaction of the crowd. However, when the Supermodels returned to the top of their runway, the Headshrinkers burst out from behind the curtain and attacked them! Martel and Raphael tried to escape and headed for the ring, but Samu and Sionne caught up with them and tore them out of their silk suits! The Headshrinkers beat the Supermodels up and down the squared circle, all the while ripping their clothing off in strips! The Headshrinkers left the Supermodels scurrying from the ring in their underwear to laugher from the crowd! Rick Martel and Raphael were humiliated and quickly retreated to the sanctuary of the backstage area, while Samu was shown chewing on a shirt made of the finest Egyptian cotton!
Footage was shown from Survivor Series of the Great Muta blinding Randy Savage with mist, which caused the Macho Man to get counted out. It was then announced that Savage will meet the Pearl of the Orient in a singles bout next week on Superstars. Comments aired from Gary Hart, with the Great Muta standing menacingly in the background. Hart explained that when Muta uses the mist, he is summoning the spirits of all the great warriors of the Orient. Hart said that next week Randy Savage won't just be going up against Muta, but also against the power of generations upon generations of shogun and samurai warriors, and he doesn't like the Macho Man's chances.
Big Boss Man defeated Taz by disqualification in 0:06:27. Taz suffered a back injury. He will be out for approximately 1 month. Rating: ** 1/4 [Kimona interfered against Big Boss Man.]
This match-up was nothing more than a fight, which started off with a brawl in the aisle. In the ring, the Big Boss Man took over on Taz with punches and a headbutt. Boss Man scored with an avalanche in the corner, but when he went for another Taz responded with a brutal lariat. Taz hit a T-Bone Tazplex and when the Boss Man fought back to his feet, Taz was waiting for him with the Tazmission. Boss Man was trapped in the hold, but he managed to stagger over to the ropes. The official called for a rope break but the One Man Crime Spree refused to release the hold! Taz wouldn't release his grip past the referee's five count and the official was left with no option but to call for the bell.
The Big Boss Man was beginning to fade in the clutches of the deadly Tazmission, but in an act of desperation he managed to drag himself to the corner and use his free right arm to seize possession of his nightstick. The former corrections officer struck Taz in the knee, breaking the hold. Boss Man then pummelled Taz twice in the ribs and then threw the One Man Crime Spree out of the ring! Taz attempted to return to the squared circle, but thought better of it as the Boss Man wielded his nightstick with intent. Gary Hart and Kimona tried to calm the Hardcore Champion down as the show went off air!
Circuit information: The dispute between the Big Boss Man and Taz rumbles on. The One Man Crime Spree was disqualified in their singles match tonight when he refused to release the Tazmission with Boss Man in the ropes. The former corrections officer then used his nightstick to clear the ring of the Hardcore Champion, but Taz was more than prepared to go after the Boss Man again.
Shawn Michaels became the first superstar to announce his participation in the 1995 Royal Rumble, the winner of which will face the WWF Champion at WrestleMania XI in Hartford. The crafty Heartbreak Kid certainly has all the tools - and the tricks - necessary to outlast 29 other men on January 22.
Tonight's fashion show by the Supermodels was purely an excuse to rub their wealth and extravagant lifestyle in all of our faces. The Headshrinkers, who have had their problems recently with Rick Martel and Raphael, took exception and broke up the show in a hurry, doing thousands of dollars worth of damage in the process! There is still a score to be settled between these two teams.
Make sure you tune in this week for Monday Night RAW, where we are scheduled to hear from former WWF Tag Team Champions The Thrillseekers! The Berzerker, Owen Hart and the Swiss Bobsleigh Team are all set for action, plus in our feature contest Razor Ramon will square off with The Birdman! Till then, so long everybody!

Monday Night RAW December 5th, 1994 Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, NY Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
The show opened with Razor Ramon on his way to the squared circle. The Bad Guy was looking to bounce back from his disappointing loss at Survivor Series with a victory over the Birdman tonight.
Razor Ramon pinned The Birdman with the Razor's Edge in 0:10:44. Rating: ** 1/4
The Birdman jumped Razor Ramon as the Bad Guy was handing over his gold chain necklaces to the ringside attendant. The Birdman choked Ramon on the ropes, but Ramon fought back with a bulldog and an abdominal stretch. Birdman went to the eyes and sent Ramon into the steel steps. The Bad Guy made his comeback with a choke slam and a fallaway slam before finishing a strong challenge from the Birdman with the Razor's Edge.
After the match, Razor Ramon was interviewed at ringside by Todd Pettengill. Ramon said that Shawn Michaels is seriously mistaken if he thinks things are over between them. The Bad Guy warned that things are not over, not by a long shot! Ramon said that when he eventually catches up with Michaels, the Heartbreak Kid will not make it to the Royal Rumble!
Footage was shown from this past weekend on Superstars where The Headshrinkers wrecked the Supermodels' fashion show, stripping Rick Martel and Raphael down to their underwear and doing thousands of dollars' worth of damage to various items of clothing. Vince McMahon announced that a match has been signed between the two teams for next week on the 100th edition of Monday Night RAW. Comments then aired from the Supermodels, in which Martel described the embarrassment that Samu and Sionne had caused them. However, Martel added that these two pretty boys are not afraid to get their hands dirty next week to make the Headshrinkers pay!
The Berzerker pinned Scott Taylor with the Piledriver in 0:00:26. Rating: 3/4*
The Berzerker wasted no time in putting away the hapless Scott Taylor tonight. After the match, the Berzerker threw Taylor over the top rope and began removing the ringside mats. The Berzerker intended to hit another piledriver on the exposed concrete, but Friar Ferguson intervened and placated the Nordic nutjob. Could this incessant Viking rage drive the Berzerker to glory at the Royal Rumble?
Rockabilly pinned Barry Horowitz with the Rockabilly Boogie in 0:05:53. Rating: 3/4*
Another Public Enemy vignette aired which hyped "Flyboy" Rocco Rock's boxing background. It was revealed that Rock has 22 professional wins to his name and used to be a sparring partner for two time cruiserweight champion Carlos Giglione. The Mack Daddies of Hardcore Team Wrestling will make their debut this weekend on Superstars!
A video aired recapping the events from last week's show when Ted DiBiase interrupted The Undertaker's interview and threatened to reveal a secret that the WWF Champion does not want known. The Undertaker then cut a promo in a darkened graveyard, in which he acknowledged that there are certain events which have occurred that are better off never seeing the light of day. The Deadman warned the Million Dollar Man that some things should remain unsaid.
Swiss Bobsleigh Team (Lars and Luca) defeated Gary Scott and Buck Quartermaine when Luca pinned G. Scott after the Podium Finish in 0:05:26. Rating: * 1/2 [Alundra interfered against Buck Quartermaine.]
Pre-recorded comments were shown from former WWF Tag Team Champions The Thrillseekers. Chris Jericho said they weren't going to complain or come up with excuses for dropping the titles to the Beverly Brothers. Instead, they were going to train harder than ever to get their belts back. Lance Storm said that as former champions they were looking forward to receiving their automatic title rematch, where he vowed that he and Jericho would make the most of the opportunity and regain the gold at the very first attempt!
Vince McMahon announced that new WWF Tag Team Champions the Beverly Brothers will be the very first guests on Duke Droese's new interview segment - "Talkin' Trash with The Dumpster" - this weekend on Superstars!
Owen Hart pinned Gary Sabough with the Rocket Launcher in 0:04:48. Rating: **
Owen Hart was still showing the affects of the vicious assault by Taz at Survivor Series, but still managed to put away Gary Sabough with a spinwheel kick and the Rocket Launcher.
Speaking of Taz, Vince McMahon revealed that WWF President Jack Tunney has booked a Nightstick Match between the One Man Crime Spree and the Big Boss Man for next week's 100th episode of Monday Night RAW! Taz's Hardcore Title will be on the line.
Bad News Brown closed the show with a promo in which he addressed Bret Hart's challenge for an I Quit Match. Bad News accepted the match and said it would happen on next week's RAW 100 show. He added that he doesn't know the meaning of the phrase "I Quit", having never said it before in his whole life. Bad News warned the Hitman that he isn't going to use fancy submission holds to make the Hitman quit. Instead, he is going to use every weapon he can get his hands on to beat up Hart so badly that he'll have no option but to grab that microphone and utter those two shameful words. Bad News then upped the stakes, challenging Hart to pull out of the Royal Rumble and relinquish a potential WWF Title shot at WrestleMania if Brown beats him next week. On the other hand, Bad News stated that if he fails to make Bret Hart say "I Quit", then you will never see Bad News Brown in the World Wrestling Federation again!
Circuit information: The stage is almost set for next week's landmark edition of Monday Night RAW. Bret Hart is scheduled to battle his bitter rival Bad News Brown in an I Quit Match, but will the Hitman accept the stipulations that Bad News laid out tonight? You would surely believe that the Excellence of Execution would happily stake his spot in the Royal Rumble for the chance to banish Bad News Brown from the Federation for good.
Taz and the Big Boss Man are also set to clash again on the 100th episode of Monday Night RAW, but this time the nightstick will be legal once somebody brings it into play. Will the Boss Man be able to make Taz serve hard time and take his Hardcore Championship in the process?
The Supermodels will be going for revenge next week when they face The Headshrinkers. Rick Martel and Raphael are keen to take out their anger for the humiliation they suffered at the hands of Samu and Sionne, but the Supermodels' pompous attitude has infuriated Afa's men on a number of occasions in recent weeks. Sparks could fly in this one!
But before all that, this weekend on Superstars we are bringing you a much-anticipated singles bout between Macho Man Randy Savage and the Great Muta! In addition, Tatanka and Bam Bam Bigelow will be in action, plus Public Enemy will make their debut! Till then, so long everybody!!

WWF Superstars December 10th, 1994 Fernwood Resort, Bushkill, PA Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
The show opened with comments from Gary Hart and Randy Savage ahead of the Great Muta's bout with the Macho Man later in the show. Hart said that Muta is climbing to the top quicker than anybody has managed before. He added that the Pearl of the Orient is faster, quicker and more agile than Savage ever was and said that the world will find out who the better competitor really is tonight. Randy Savage dared Muta to spew the mist at him again, just like he had at Survivor Series. Savage warned that if Muta cannot do it, then the Japanese superstar will die trying!
Public Enemy (Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge) defeated Kerry Davis and Tony DeVito when Grunge pinned T. DeVito after the Drive By in 0:06:44. Rating: * 1/2
This was the debut of Public Enemy and the crowd embraced them very quickly. The two teams brawled before the bell and Kerry Davis took a double backdrop from Rocco Rock and Johnny Grunge. Tony DeVito ate a double big boot and double suplex. Public Enemy raised the roof while their opponents regrouped. Davis took a swinging neckbreaker while DeVito was clotheslined to the floor. The Mack Daddies of Hardcore Tag Team Wrestling drilled Davis with a double flapjack and then Grunge struck him with a bodyslam and a legdrop. That allowed Rocco Rock to connect with flying somersault senton to give Public Enemy their first win in the WWF.
Public Enemy celebrated by leading the crowd in some arm waving, when suddenly the Hollywood Blonds appeared out of nowhere and blindsided the newcomers! Brian Pillman and Steve Austin threw Johnny Grunge to the outside hard, before planting Rocco Rock with the Brush with Greatness. The Blonds then dropped Grunge chest-first across the guardrail and returned to the ring with a microphone. Austin said that he had watched The Thrillseekers talk about their automatic rematch for the Tag Team Titles on Monday Night RAW, but he and Pillman were still waiting for their own rematch! Pillman said that there was no way in hell that the Thrillseekers were getting a shot at the titles before them. The furious Blonds then went after Rocco Rock again, stomping away at him and dumping him out of the ring.
Tatanka pinned Jason Ahrndt with the End of the Trail in 0:02:11. Rating: * 1/4
During the match, Tatanka cut an insert promo in which he expressed his satisfaction that his feud with Mr. Perfect is now over. The Native American said that it was time for him to make his people proud and have gold around his waist once again. Tatanka officially announced his participation in the Royal Rumble.
Bam Bam Bigelow pinned Brooklyn Brawler with the Diving Headbutt in 0:03:29. Rating: * 1/2
During the match, Bam Bam Bigelow cut an insert promo in which he stated that he understands that Adam Bomb is just a puppet. Bigelow expressed his desire to go after the puppet master - Harvey Wippleman - and Bomb would not be able to stop him!
When Superstars returned from commercial, the ring had been set up with two overturned garbage cans which were acting as make-shift stools. This could mean only one thing - it was time for the very first edition of Duke Droese's interview segment, "Talkin' Trash with The Dumpster"! Droese acknowledged the neck injury that was currently preventing him from competing, but promised to return better than ever in the new year and vowed to regain the Hardcore Title from Taz. The Dumpster then introduced the first ever guests on his show, Fytch Wrestling Enterprises!
Tammy Fytch led out the WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner and new WWF Tag Team Champions The Beverly Brothers. Fytch was positively beaming as her men entered the ring adorned with all of their gold. Beau Beverly bragged about defeating The Thrillseekers for the Tag Team Titles and put their success down to the stewardship of Tammy Fytch. Blake Beverly admitted that they had been through their fair share of managers. They had a guy who couldn't "coach" and a guy who thought he was a "genius", but Fytch is the best manager they have had by a wide margin. Fytch grabbed the mic and proclaimed herself to be the greatest manager of all time to nuclear heat from the crowd. Fytch said that when she first set foot in the World Wrestling Federation, she was laughed at, ridiculed and nobody took her seriously. But look at her now! All of the superstars that she managers are champions! Fytch told everybody who ever doubted her to kiss her butt!!
Duke Droese interjected and stirred the pot by stating that although Scott Steiner holds the Intercontinental Title, he didn't look like much of a champion when the Lightning Kid pinned his shoulders to the mat for the 1-2-3 at Survivor Series! The crowd popped for that comment but Steiner was incensed. He got in Droese's face and claimed that what happened at Survivor Series was a fluke! That brought the Lightning Kid down to the ring to a nice ovation. The Kid challenged Steiner to face him again next week but this time with the title on the line, so he can prove that it was no fluke! Fytch laughed off the challenge and stated that this "boy" couldn't last five minutes against a real man like Steiner! The Lightning Kid suggested that if he can prove Fytch wrong and last five minutes with Steiner, he should get a shot at the Intercontinental Title. Steiner immediately agreed to the match and vowed to snap the Kid in half next week. The Kid began to leave the ring, happy with the agreement, but stopped short and said that on second thoughts, he won't simply last five minutes with Steiner - he'll beat Steiner before the five minutes are up! Steiner lunged at the Kid, who managed to escape before the irate Intercontinental Champion could get his hands on him!
Great Muta pinned Randy Savage with the Moonsault Press in 0:18:05. Rating: *** 1/4 [Kimona interfered against Randy Savage.]
Randy Savage had the upper hand on the Great Muta during the opening exchanges, but Kimona grabbed Savage's ankle and Muta took over on the Macho Man with a dropkick and an elbowdrop. Muta whipped Savage into the guardrail and followed up with a handspring elbow on the outside! The Pearl of the Orient connected with another handspring elbow in the corner and then drilled Savage with a bulldog. Muta signalled for the finish and went for a backbreaker, but Savage countered into a pinning combination for a very close near fall. Savage scored with a flying axhandle and hit the flying elbowdrop, but Kimona placed Muta's foot on the rope and prevented the fall. Savage chased Kimona away, but walked into a back suplex from Muta who then went for the moonsault. However, Savage rolled out of the way and came close to winning the bout again with a small package. Muta picked up a two count with a dragon suplex. Again Kimona caused a distraction and Muta spat mist in Savage's face. Muta then dropped Savage with a backbreaker and executed the moonsault to pull off the shook victory!
Bret "Hitman" Hart was interviewed backstage by Todd Pettengill. The Hitman accepted the terms for his I Quit Match with Bad News Brown this coming week on the 100th edition of Monday Night RAW. If Bad News wins, Hart will pull out of the Royal Rumble but if the Hitman wins, Bad News is gone from the WWF! Hart said that it was easy to agree to the stipulations because if he fails to defeat Bad News, then he isn't worthy of a spot in the Rumble nor is he worthy of ever calling himself a champion again! The Hitman vowed to make Bad News quit in front of the entire world and send him packing from the company for good!
Circuit information: What an incredible performance by the Great Muta here tonight as the talented grappler from Japan recorded the biggest win of his career over the established veteran Macho Man Randy Savage. Although the victory was not squeaky clean, Muta still proved that he must be considered a real player in the World Wrestling Federation and can use this win as a springboard to bigger things. With Gary Hart behind him, anything is possible for the Pearl of the Orient.
The Thrillseekers alluded to an automatic rematch for the Tag Team Titles on Monday Night RAW and these comments did not sit well with the Hollywood Blonds, who are still waiting for their title rematch since dropping the belts at Survivor Series. Unfortunately, Steve Austin and Brian Pillman chose to take out their frustration at the expense of the debuting Public Enemy.
Next week on Superstars, the Lightning Kid will square off with Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner in a unique bout where if the Kid can last five minutes with Steiner, he'll earn a shot at Steiner's championship. Steiner is furious that the Kid pinned him in an elimination match at Survivor Series, a result that Steiner feels was a fluke and is determined to spend five minutes showing the Lightning Kid just who the better man really is.
Don't you dare miss this week's edition of Monday Night RAW, which is the 100th episode of the show!! It is guaranteed to be an action packed night, which will see Bret "Hitman" Hart battle Bad News Brown in an I Quit Match! The Hitman has accepted Bad News' stipulations, which state that if he loses Bret Hart cannot compete in the Royal Rumble, whereas if Bad News is defeated he must leave the World Wrestling Federation. Also on the show, The Headshrinkers square off with the Supermodels and Taz defends the Hardcore Title against the Big Boss Man in a Nightstick Match! Till then, so long everybody!!

My first thought about TNM in awhile was "I wonder how things are going in that WWF '94 circuit?"
Great Survivor Series. Good to see Bret back.
Surprised at the vicious attack on Okerlund.
Surprised to see DiBiase and Windham back. I figured they were gone for good. Is DiBiase going to bring in Kane a couple years early? Better than debuting as Lawler's dentist. Would be interesting timing since Undertaker is currently wearing a mask due to his facial injuries.
Beverly Brothers have the tag team titles? Yuck. It makes sense but still yuck. I'm sure the Thrillseekers will get them back soon enough.

Monday Night RAW - 100th Episode December 12th, 1994 Liberty, NY Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
The 100th episode of Monday Night RAW began with a video package featuring some of the most memorable moments from the near two year history of the show. Events covered were the shocking debuts of the Steiner Brothers and Big Van Vader, the return of the British Bulldogs to win the Tag Team Titles on their first night back, Liz jilting Randy Savage at the altar in favour of Shawn Michaels and the mask-clad Undertaker's comeback this past Hallowe'en.
Bret "Hitman" Hart was set to clash with Bad News Brown in an I Quit Match in the main event of the show. The stipulations in this bout are that if Hart loses, he's out of the Royal Rumble while if Bad News is defeated, he must leave the company for good! Pre-recorded comments then aired from both men. The Hitman stated that there is nobody in the WWF that knows submission wrestling like him. He asked Bad News to bring everything he has tonight, because he is going to make him regret ever crossing his path! Bad News Brown claimed that he has never given up in anything in his life and if Hart thinks he's going to start tonight, then he has another thing coming! This one will not be for the faint-hearted.
Footage was shown from two weeks ago from Superstars when the bout between Taz and the Big Boss Man broke down, resulting in the former corrections officer using his nightstick on the One Man Crime Spree. Taz puts his Hardcore Title on the line against the Boss Man in a Nightstick Match next!
Night Stick Match: Taz made Big Boss Man submit to the Tazmission in 0:07:23. Rating: *** (Taz retained the WWF Hardcore Title.) [Kimona interfered against Big Boss Man.]
After taking it to Taz for most of the early going, the Big Boss Man got to the top rope and almost retrieved the nightstick. However, Taz recuperated and suplexed Boss Man off the top. Taz hit a double leg slam and applied a reverse chinlock. Boss Man came back but missed a splash, giving Taz the opportunity to go for the nightstick. Boss Man foiled Taz's plans, yanking him off the top and crotching the One Man Crime Spree on the way down. A double clothesline put both men down before the Boss Man managed to shimmy up the pole and grab the stick. Boss Man hammered Taz with the nightstick, but he became distracted by Kimona jumping on the apron and Taz struck with a low blow. Taz then locked in a nightstick-assisted Tazmission, allowing him to apply a great deal more pressure on the chokehold than usual. That was it for the Boss Man as the Hardcore Champion held on for the W.
Black Friday Management were not finished there and decided to punish the Big Boss Man further after the match was over. Ludvig Borga, Great Muta and the Arabian Butchers joined Taz in punching, kicking and stomping the former corrections officer. Manuel and Victor dragged Boss Man off the canvas and him in place for Taz to deliver a free strike with the nightstick. Thankfully, Owen Hart, Marty Jannetty and Crush hit the ring to make the save, with Crush targeting Ludvig Borga specifically! Gary Hart's group were cleared from the ring as Monday Night RAW went to commercial.
Footage aired from Superstars two weeks ago when The Headshrinkers crashed The Supermodels' fashion show and caused thousands of dollars worth of damage, as well as bruising the considerable egos of Rick Martel and Raphael. The Supermodels get the chance for retribution next.
The New Headshrinkers (Sionne and Samu) and The Supermodels (Rick Martel and Raphael) battled to a no contest in 0:04:08. Rating: **
This tag team bout span out of control very quickly and referee Mike Chioda threw the match out after he was manhandled by both teams. Despite the efforts of officials and road agents to separate them, The Headshrinkers and The Supermodels continued to fight as the show went to a commercial break.
Ted DiBiase cut a promo in a funeral parlour. DiBiase said that the first time he and The Undertaker ever met was in a funeral parlour just like this one. He continued that some time after, The Deadman revealed his deepest, darkest secret to him. A secret that if revealed will turn The Undertaker's world upside down! DiBiase said that dead or alive, everybody's got a price for the Million Dollar Man! He said that with this secret hanging over The Undertaker, he has the WWF Champion right where he wants him. DiBiase threatened to reveal the secret next week on Monday Night RAW!!
Backstage, The Headshrinkers and The Supermodels were still brawling. Both teams were using any object they could find on each other as backstage staff ran for cover!
I-Quit Match: Bret Hart made Bad News Brown submit to a figure-four leglock in 0:22:13. Rating: *** 1/4
These two great rivals slugged it out to start, with Bret Hart going after Bad News Brown's legs. The Hitman applied a figure-four leglock, but Bad News refused to quit. When Bad News tried to walk off the pain in his legs, Hart blasted him with a suicide dive! Brown reversed an Irish whip into the steel steps and the dropped the heavy steps on the Hitman's back. Bad News attempted to drop the steps on the Hitman's surgically repaired knee, but Hart moved his leg at the last second. Brown worked Hart's back, smacking him with a steel chair and driving him into the ringpost. Bad News hit a backbreaker and stretched Hart over his knee, but the Hitman wouldn't quit. Hart also refused to submit in a bow-and-arrow hold. Bad News clocked the Hitman with the microphone out of frustration.
Bret Hart roared back with a superplex and then tied Bad News Brown up in the tree of woe, before stomping away at his foe repeatedly. Hart went for the Sharpshooter, but Bad News raked the eyes. Brown untied a top turnbuckle and whipped Hart into the corner. The Hitman struck the exposed buckle chest-first with extreme force and rolled around on the canvas in agony. Brown choked the Hitman with some cables, but once again Hart wouldn't quit and drove Bad News into the exposed turnbuckle. Bad News couldn't make the Hitman submit with a Boston crab. Hart ducked the Ghetto Blaster and went on the ascendancy with a Russian legsweep, a backbreaker and an elbowsmash from the second rope. The Hitman went back to the legs, dragging Brown into the corner and driving his knee into the ringpost. Hart grabbed a cable and hogtied Brown's ankles around the post so he could stomp Brown without him moving! The defenceless Brown spat at the Hitman, so Hart responded by whacking Brown's kneecap up against the ringpost with a steel chair! Brown yelled into the mic that Hart would never be able to make him quit, so Hart proceeded to demolish Bad News' knee with the chair! Bad News screamed if that was all that Hart had, so Hart locked in a figure-four leglock around the ringpost!! Brown writhed in pain before eventually quitting over the house mic, finally ending this battle.
Circuit information: The I Quit Match main event in the 100th episode of Monday Night RAW will live long in the memory. It was intense, brutal and physical, but in the end it was Bret Hart who stood tall and banished his great rival Bad News Brown from the World Wrestling Federation. We witnessed a new aggressive side from the Hitman and the former champion will need this attitude in the Royal Rumble if he is serious about reclaiming the World Heavyweight Title. The Excellence of Execution showed no mercy tonight.
Taz also retained his Hardcore Title over the Big Boss Man this evening, choking out the challenger with Boss Man's own nightstick. Crush and Ludvig Borga had another confrontation after the bout. And absolutely nothing was settled in the tag team match pitting the Headshrinkers against the Supermodels. These two teams will inevitably clash again soon as their feud rumbles on.
Make sure you join us this weekend on Superstars where the Lightning Kid and Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner square off in a unique bout where if the Kid can last five minutes with Steiner, he'll get a title shot. However, the Kid has vowed to defeat Steiner before the five minutes are up! In addition, Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz, Adam Bomb and Marty Jannetty are all in action, plus the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers battle Space Race! Till then, so long everybody!!

Surprised to see the Bret-Bad News fued blown off conclusively on RAW, even if it was the 100th episode. Great brutal match and a great way to debut Bret's ringpost figure four in this universe. (I know Bret popularized the move, but is he considered the innovator of that move too?) Also might be setting the seeds for a Bret heel turn there? Bad News is a complete asshole, but Bret basically tried to cripple him. That's pretty brutal for a face in 1995.
How bizaree is it that I'm actually kinda of excited about a possible Crush vs Ludvig Borga blowoff match at Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania?
Looking forward to RAW and how Dibiase will reveal Takers secret.
I was surprised to see Taz still defend the Hardcore Championship despite having a back injury. You have a lot of great tag teams right now. I actually like the Beverlys as champs. The Thrillseekers seem like the type of team who always need to be chasing the belts, like the Rockers.

Bad News quit on me after Survivor Series, so I wanted a way to write him out quickly and blow off the feud once and for all. It was also a good opportunity to give the Hitman's character more of an edge heading into 1995 and his chase for the WWF Championship.

WWF Superstars December 17th, 1994 Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, NY Your commentators are Vince McMahon and Jerry "The King" Lawler.
Tonight's show opened with a tag team match pitting Space Race against the Fabulous Rougeau Brothers. The Rougeaus were out for revenge following their elimination at the hands of Bob Holly and Max Moon in the special eight team Survivor Series style bout last month.
The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers (Jacques Rougeau and Raymond Rougeau) defeated Space Race (Bob Holly and Max Moon) when R. Rougeau pinned B. Holly after a sitdown in 0:11:34. Rating: ***
This was a solid contest between the experienced Rougeaus and the upcoming young team of Space Race. Raymond ended up scoring the victory for his team, sitting down on Bob Holly's sunset flip attempt and holding the ropes during the pinfall. Space Race were furious at the decision.
Todd Pettengill interviewed Tammy Fytch and Scott Steiner backstage ahead of Steiner's bout with the Lightning Kid later in the show. If the Kid can last five minutes with the Intercontinental Champion, he'll earn a title shot. Fytch warned that this will be the longest five minutes of the Kid's life.

After Adam Bomb had taken care of his opponent with the Atom Smasher, Bam Bam Bigelow made his way out to confront Harvey Wippleman. The Warlord made the save for Wippleman, but Bigelow managed to fight him off. Bomb dropped Bigelow with a sledge off the ring apron and he and Warlord went to work on the Beast from the East. With Wippleman directing traffic, Bomb and Warlord were did a serious number on Bigelow until Tatanka unexpectedly came to Bigelow's aid! Tatanka cleared the ring with a succession of chops and dropkicks, sending Wippleman's men into retreat. Bigelow and Tatanka were still wary of one another, but the Beast from the East had the grace to acknowledge the Native American's timely help.

Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz pinned Curtis Harrison with the Home Run in 0:06:07. Rating: DUD
Ludvig Borga and Gary Hart were this week's guests on Talkin' Trash with The Dumpster. Before the interview, Duke Droese warned Hart that when he is given the all-clear to return to action, he will be coming after Taz and he'll get his Hardcore Title back. Borga tried to intimidate Droese while Hart took the mic and sneered at the Dumpster, before addressing Crush's recent comments. Hart said that at Survivor Series, Black Friday Management destroyed Crush and his moronic group of friends. Hart noted that Crush wants to talk about honour and respect, yet any man with any honour would disappear after such shame being brought upon them. In spite of this great shame, Hart could not understand why Crush would wish to challenge his men again.
Borga said that he gave Crush mercy at Survivor Series. He did not rip Crush's head from his body like he should have. But that mercy is now gone. Borga threatened to end Crush and make him surrender at Borga's feet!
As Black Friday Management left the ring, it was announced that on next week's show the team of Ludvig Borga and the Arabian Butchers will square off against the trio of Crush, Owen Hart and Marty Jannetty in six man tag team action!
[Five Minute Challenge]: Lightning Kid defeated Scott Steiner by countout in 0:04:50. Rating: ** 1/2
Scott Steiner dominated the plucky Lightning Kid for the majority of this bout and at ringside Tammy Fytch was enjoying every second of the beatdown. The Intercontinental Champion effortlessly tossed around the Kid with a series of suplexes, before dumping him to the outside for further punishment. Steiner viciously whipped the Lightning Kid into the guardrail with maximum force and then threatened to plant the Kid on the floor with a tiger driver! However, the resilient Kid blocked the move and backdropped Steiner over the guardrail and into the front row! As a horrified Fytch looked on, the Kid scrambled into the ring and beat the referee's ten count, thereby earning a shot at the Intercontinental Title!
The Lightning Kid quickly left the ring after the match-up and celebrated his victory with his fans in the crowd. Scott Steiner and Tammy Fytch were beside themselves, blaming each other for the loss as the show went off air!
Circuit information: The Lightning Kid recorded a second victory in a month over an overconfident Scott Steiner to earn an Intercontinental Title shot in the near future. Steiner and Fytch are livid at this turn of events, but only have themselves to blame for underestimating the plucky youngster. Can the Lightning Kid pull off another upset when the belt is on the line?
Bam Bam Bigelow has an unlikely ally in his battle with Harvey Wippleman, none other than The Native American Tatanka! Tatanka and Bigelow were embroiled in a bitter feud over the Intercontinental Title last year and nobody was more surprised at Tatanka coming to Bigelow's aid than the Beast from the East himself.
This week on Monday Night RAW, Ted DiBiase has vowed to reveal the secret about The Undertaker! Tune in to see if the Million Dollar Man makes good on his threat! Also, we will determine who challenges the Beverly Brothers for the Tag Team Titles at the Royal Rumble when The Hollywood Blonds square off with the Thrillseekers. Till then, so long everybody!!
