Chairshot Classics: Raw #11 (April 5 1993)

Published

on

Monday Night Raw Logo

Welcome to the Granddaddy of them all in it’s infancy years as we put the Monday into Monday Night Raw as we cover Monday Night Raw episode by episode. Last night (in 1993) was WrestleMania 9. Here are the results:

. Tatanka beat Intercontinental Champion, Shawn Michaels by Count Out
. Rick Steiner & Scott Steiner beat Samu & Fatu when Scott Steiner pinned Samu after a Frankensteiner
. Doink beat Crush when a second Doink hit Crush with a fake arm
. Razor Ramon beat Bob Backlund after a Small Package
. Ted DiBiase & IRS beat Hulk Hogan & Brutus Beefcake to defend the Tag Team Titles by DQ
. Lex Luger beat Mr Perfect after a Backslide
. The Undertaker beat Giant Gonzales by DQ for using chloroform
. Yokozuna beat Bret Hart to win the WWE Title after Mr Fuji threw salt in Bret Hart’s eyes
. Hulk Hogan beat Yokozuna to win the WWE Title after a Legdrop Of Doom

Also, one of my colleagues was nice enough to review it so I don’t have to. Here it is.

WrestleMania IX: Genius Gamble or Busted Flush?

All caught up? Good. This may be the night after WrestleMania but it’s not going to be the big deal that it is today. Is it any good though? One way to find out.

Raw #11 (April 5 1993)

Vince and Savage welcome us to Raw (no Bartlet!!!!!! *streamers*) and they run through some of the matches on tonight’s show.

. Bam Bam Bigelow vs Virgil

While this wasn’t an enhancement match, there really was only ever going to be one winner of this. To his credit Virgil got some offence in. Probably enough so he’s not considered Enhancement. To make things worse, Vince and Savage spend half the match discussing the events of WrestleMania and basically ignoring this match. I know it’s a post PPV Raw but they should find a way to give an equal cover to the match AND last night’s show. Bigelow won this following a top rope Headbutt.

Winner: Bam Bam Bigelow

Jerry Lawler is supposed to wrestle but he decides not to as the crowd refuse to stop chanting “Burger King

We see a backstage interview that was clearly taped at WrestleMania with Mr Fuji, Yokozuna and Mean Gene. Gene points out that Fuji is unhappy at the result of last night with Fuji feeling that Yokozuna’s WWE Title match with Hulk Hogan was unsanctioned and as a result Yokozuna should still be champion. Talk about leading the witness, neither Fuji nor Yokozuna spoke a word here.

. Bob Backlund vs Kim Chee

I don’t know if this is Enhancement or not. Granted that is due to my not knowing that Kim Chee wrestled. As matches go this was fairly even but I feel that, like the last match, only one was ever going to win. Backlund won with a Bridging Roll Up. Or at least that’s as good as I can describe it. If you have a better name, Tweet me.

Winner: Bob Backlund

. Damian Demento vs Jim Brunzell

I thought Brunzell left years ago! Worse still, Rob Bartlett calls in. Apparently he’s ran out of money and is still in Vegas. What’s even odder is that I’ve seen WrestleMania a few times over the years and I have no recollection of ever seeing him to the point that I thought last week was HIS last week (still hopin’). This match was alright. It screams filler but that doesn’t make it bad. Demento looked quite good on offence and got the win here after a Neckbreaker followed by a Knee Drop

Winner: Damian Demento

Bret Hart IcoPro ad.

Randy Savage Slim Jim ad.

We get an ad for the Encore Presentation of WrestleMania.

. Rick Steiner & Scott Steiner vs Blake Beverley & Beau Beverley

This is a better match. This match SHOULD have been the main event. This was a proper match between two name teams. Scott’s power and suplexes looked good as they usually do. Beverly’s slowed it down and worked on face in peril until the hot tag. Basic tag team formula but if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. Scott got the pin after a Frankensteiner on Blake.

Winners: Rick Steiner & Scott Steiner

The “hyperactivity” ad for Mania airs.

. Jerry Lawler vs Jim Powers

Another one sided match with only ever one winner. Not a lot I can say. It was decent, it was basic. I still say the Steiner’s match should have been the main event. To prove how much of a basic Jerry Lawler match this is, Lawler won wth a Piledriver.

Winner: Jerry Lawler

We get the action figure ad.

Jerry Lawler says it’s easy to be tough when you’re in a seat. It looks like Savage and Lawler may have an altercation. Vince plugs Money Inc vs Bushwackers next week and we fade out.

Post Show: For a post WrestleMania show this was bizarre. The debuts, the chanting crowds, the party atmosphere that we take for granted in 2018 are non-existent here. Tat said, this was a better show than the previous ten. I don’t know if it’s because WWE have found the right balance for the show, if it’s due to a lack of Bartlett or a lack of enhancement matches. Either way it was better and long may it continue.

Match Of The Night: Steiners vs Beverleys. Have you not been paying attention?

MVP: Bam Bam Bigelow. Vince and Savage may have ignored him but I like him

Rating: 8/10

Chairshot Classics: Raw #10 (March 22 1993)

Published

on

Monday Night Raw Logo

Hello, hello and welcome to the place where we put the Monday into Monday Night Raw as we cover Monday Night Raw episode by episode. The snow has been cleared on the Road to WrestleMania. This week it’s the Go Home show. the last stop before WrestleMania. Well the last Raw anyway. Was it any good? Does it make you want to buy WrestleMania? Lets watch and find out as we cover

Raw #10 (March 22 1993)

We open with actual Vince McMahon, Randy Savage and (dammit is he STILL here?) Rob Bartlet. They run through the matches scheduled for tonight. I won’t spoil what they are though.

Bushwackers (Luke & Butch) vs Damian Demento & Repo Man

This is an odd match to have on this show. I said before that this is the Go Home show and none of these men are on the show so there is nothing to hype. This match perhaps should have been The Steiners vs Demento and Repo or even Bushwackers vs Headshrinkers to allow WWE to hype the upcoming Steiners vs Headshrinkers at Wrestlemania. Tat said, this was standard fare. Bushwhackers got in a comedy spot early on where Butch would bite Demento in the ass, Repo attempted to stop it and got bitten in his own ass by Luke. Demento and Repo are on offence for most of the match until Luke and Butch get their second wind and they hit Repo Man with their Battering Ram finisher. Butch makes the cover and gets the three count.

Winners: Luke & Butch

Tatanka vs Reno Riggins

It’s Enhancement time! That said this is more like what I wanted from the opener. We have Tatanka in the ring which allows commentary to talk about and hype his match at Wrestlemania with Shawn Michaels and (dare I say it) makes Tatanka look strong in the process by having him defeat a low ranking developmental talet. Tatanka gets the victory following a Samoan Drop.

Winner: Tatanka

We get an announcement that Andre The Giant is going into the newly formed Hall Of Fame. We will get a couple of Hall of Fames over the years but this is the last tme an entry to it happens around Wrestlemania time until 2004.

We get the Bret Hart IcoPro ad along with the action figure ad.

Ted DiBiase & Irwin R Schyster vs Scott Rich and Jeff Armstrong

Time for another Enhancement Time! OK this was basically a tag team version of the Tatanka match. Ted and Irwin allow commentarry to discuss the upcoming match between Ted & Irwin vs Hogan & Beefcake. A nothing match ended when Irwin pinned one of them, maybe Scott Rich, after a Running Clothesline.

Winners: Ted DiBiase & Irwin R Schyster

We cut to Mean Gene and a Wrestlemania Report. He reminds us about Not Vince McMahon from last week (I will rip that ‘tache from your face if you bring him up again!). He then hypes the matches at Wrestlemania including Bret Hart vs Yokozuna, The Undertaker vs Giant Gonzales and Hulk Hogan & Brutus Beefcake vs Ted DiBiase & IRS. Then he spends a while discussing the toga concept and vestal virgins.

Doink vs Kamala

Not a great match but it allowed commentary to cover Doink vs Crush at Wrestlemania. It’s there to make Doink look good and I can’t help but feel that it can’t be long before we lose Kamala. Finish came when Kamala chased Doink around the outside of the ring which ended when Doink handed Kamala a present. Doink slipped back into the ring while Kamala was counted out while opening it to reveal…. an empty box.

Winner: Doink

I’s wild, It’s crazy, it’s an ad for Mania again. Personally I think it needs another name especially around Wrestlemania season.

Vince wishes Rob Bartlet “all the best” (this HAS to be the last of him) and introduces us to Rob’s fan club. It’s three heavy ladies that Bartet calls The Rea sisters, Seva, Pia and Dia. Vince says that’s not very nice but the ladies say they love him anyway. He kisses one of them.

We get a Slim Jim ad with Randy Savage.

Vince hypes a show coming on this Sunday called March to Wrestlemania and we fade out.

Post show: This is the last show before Wrestlemania (there’s another week but it’s probably pre-empted for the dog show) and it doesn’t feel like it. Maybe it’s because I’m used to how WWE works these days, I don’t know but it feels like WWE SHOULD be doing more here

Match of the Night: Doink vs Kamala. Not brilliant but it’s the best on the show. It will get better.

MVP: Rob Bartlet. Nobody really stood out and if this is his last (and dear God I hope it is) I’ll give him this as a going away present.

Rating: 6/10

With that I am done. I can be found on Twitter @Callaweasy2220 where I live tweet Raw, Smackdown, NXT and (when there is one on) Pay Per View. Also feel free to tweet me if you liked or disliked the new format I tried out this week or if you just want to talk wrestling.
