Chairshot Classics: WWF SummerSlam ’95

Published

on

Backstage: Dean Douglas says he’s going to call it down the middle as he sees it, but first the definition of vivify, which is to renew with life or vigor. He breaks down Hakushi causing Barry Horowitz to get the win and thinks it’s a travesty, wondering if it was really a vivification for Horowitz to get a win that way.

Backstage: Todd Pettengill is in the locker room alongside WWF Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels, The Heartbreak Kid talks about the Ladder Match being the most grueling in the WWF, says it’s been eating at him to be on the losing end against Razor Ramon at WrestleMania X and he’s got everything to lose tonight. The champion tells Razor to rest assured because nothing will stop him from climbing the ladder and keeping his gold.

Match #5 for the WWF Women’s Championship: Bertha Faye w/Harvey Wippleman vs. WWF Women’s Champion Alundra Blayze
Alundra ducks under the opening lock-up and immediately starts chopping away, drop Bertha with an enzuigiri and the challenger storms up angrily. The champion sweeps the legs to frustrate Bertha, the challenger with a kick to the abdomen, whips her to the corner, charges in for a splash, but Alundra side-steps it. She fires away with kicks to the breadbasket, irish whip to the ropes is reversed, Bertha flattens her with a clothesline, runs into the ropes for multiple steamrollers, rips Blayze to the canvas by the hair, then shoots her to the ropes to do it again.

She plants the champion with a body slam, connects with multiple leg drops for a count of 2, scoops her up for another body slam, then climbs to the 2nd rope for a splash. The champion rolls out of harm’s way, goes to the 2nd rope for a victory roll, Bertha just kicking out at 2. Alundra drives a series of knees to the solarplexes, the challenger powers her to the mat, hits another body slam for a count of 2, Blayze bridges to her feet, hits the ropes, plants Bertha into the canvas by the hair, goes to the ropes for a clothesline, then back to the well for another.

Wippleman climbs onto the apron as the champion covers, the referee is distracted, Blayze has some words for Harvey, then chases him around ringside. She can’t catch him and rolls back inside, hooks Bertha for a Bridging German Suplex, the challenger blocks it, Alundra tries a crucifix instead and gains a near fall. She batters Faye with stinging chops, irish whip to the ropes is reversed, Bertha steamrolls her over again, whips her back in and the champion surprises her with a hurricanrana that almost finishes it. Blayze quickly goes to the 2nd rope for a dropkick, goes back and connects on another, heads to the 2nd rope again, but this time she misses. Bertha hauls her up, plants her with the Big Bertha Bomb and we have a new champion.
Winner and NEW WWF Women’s Champion: Bertha Faye (Big Bertha Bomb)

  • After The Bell: Jim Ross tries to get a word with the new champion, but Harvey gets jealous and tells him not to touch his woman. Wippleman explains that Bertha has just completed a makeover for the WWF and the titleholder is official deserving, Faye tells the former champion to take a good look because the championship is now around her “Slim Fast” waist.
  • EA’s Take: Yikes, this wasn’t technically speaking as bad as some women’s matches were in a few more years, but still not very good. Bertha’s gimmick was just not something that got over with the crowd and overall interest in women’s wrestling was really starting to die the closer we get to the end of the year. After arriving in April, this is the first and last time we’d see her on PPV, losing the title back to Alundra on October 23rd before leaving the company. Blayze had just returned after time off to undergo a nose job and breast implants, but her fate with the WWF would be to leave later in the year as well and head to WCW…with the title.

Video: For the opponents of The Undertaker over the years, those have sought to end The Phenom’s reign over the WWF have found themselves on the wrong end of the dark side. At WrestleMania XI, Kama swiped the infamous urn, later having it melted down into a chain he could wear as a badge of honor. Undertaker would reach out to his Creatures of the Night for support, laying a black wreath at ringside during all of Kama’s matches.

Bakckstage: Paul Bearer is standing with The Undertaker, says we are about to witness history in just a few moments as The Phenom puts an end to Kama. Undertaker informs The Supreme Fighting Machine that he dug his own grave and he will make sure Kama lies in it. He states the day of reckoning is at hand and Kama’s fate is sealed, but he can be sure that he’ll “Rest In Peace”.

Match #6 is a Casket Match: Kama w/’The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase vs. The Undertaker w/Paul Bearer
The Deadman removes his jacket, immediately goes on the attack and this one’s underway. Undertaker with big uppercuts in the corner, shoots Kama across and hooks him by the throat off the rebound, lifting The Supreme Fighting Machine in the air with a choke. DiBiase creates a distraction on the outside, Kama takes the opening for kicks to the spine, irish whip to the ropes is reversed and Taker dumps The Supreme Fighting Machine over the top onto the casket. Kama quickly rolls back inside, gets leveled by a clothesline, he staggers to the corner and catches Undertaker walking in with a kick.

He unloads with stiff punches, looks to shoot The Deadmaan across, The Phenom reverses, charges in with a splash, then hooks the wrist and climbs to the top rope. He walks out to the center of the top rope and comes off with a clubbing blow to the back, calls for the casket to be opened and tosses Kama inside. The Supreme Fighting Machine swiftly climbs out onto the apron, The Undertaker knocks him back inside, Kama again quickly hops to the apron, then surprises The Deadman coming in with a hot shot. The Supreme Fighting Machine scales the ropes to the top turnbuckle, scores with a flying clothesline, The Phenom sits up, Kama with more big punches and attempts to whip him to the corner.

Taker reverses and rushes in for another splash, this time he’s caught, The Supreme Fighting Machine plants him with a front slam, then puts the boots to The Phenom. He knocks Undertaker into the casket with a right hand, The Deadman hangs onto the top rope to avoid falling in, Kama reaches out to grab him, but Taker uses his legs to fling him into the casket instead. The Million Dollar Man steps up to the apron to get Undertaker’s attention, The Supreme Fighting Machine fights his way out of the casket, slides into the ring and buries kicks to the breadbasket.

He corners The Deadman and goes to the ribs with lefts and rights, scores with a series of kicks, continues to target the abdomen with heavy shots, bludgeoning The Phenom in the corner. He sends Taker across and rushes in, The Undertaker slips to the apron to get out of harm’s way, Kama catches him with a clothesline and The Phenom spills on top of the casket. The Deadman regroups and gets knocked back off the apron to the floor, DiBiase is there to get in some cheap shots, Bearer tries to go around and make the save, but the referees hold him off.

The Supreme Fighting Machine steps out after Taker and gets rocked by uppercuts, The Phenom rams him head-first into the steel steps, props him against the ring post, The MDM with another distraction and Undertaker turns around into a right from Kama. The Supreme Fighting Machine powers him over his shoulder, drives The Deadman spine-first into the ring post, smashes him head-first off the top of the casket, then plants him on it with a suplex. Kama rolls back inside and connects with a baseball slide, steps out on top of the casket to deliver headbutts, sets for a piledriver, but The Undertaker counters and back body drops him into the squared circle.

He steps back in and pummels The Supreme Fighting Machine with fists, irish whip to the ropes is reversed, Kama plants him with a powerslam and makes a cover, but there’s no pinfalls in this match. He grounds The Phenom with a rear chinlock, uses the ropes for extra leverage, Bearer swipes Kama’s feet off the ropes, Taker starts to rise to his feet, but gets brought back down in the side headlock. The Deadman gets a rush of adrenaline and battles to a standing position, delivers a back suplex to break the hold, both guys stagger back up and The Supreme Fighting Machine whips him hard into the turnbuckles.

He looks for a kick and Undertaker surprises him with a leg sweep, starts to fire back with kicks, swings wildly with a clothesline that’s off-target, Kama coming back with a haymaker. He shoots The Phenom to the ropes for another, Undertaker ducks under it, connects with a flying clothesline, calls for the casket to be opened, clotheslines The Supreme Fighting Machine near the ropes and they both spill inside with the lid closing. Kama makes his way out first, The Deadman drags him back inside, clobbers him with big right hands, but The Supreme Fighting Machine makes it back into the ring.

Undertaker sends him to the ropes and ducks down for a back body drop, Kama puts on the brakes, plants him with a swinging neckbreaker, whips him to the ropes for a right hand, but The Phenom avoids it and scores with a Chokeslam. Taker motions for the casket to be opened, calls for a Tombstone, spikes Kama on his head and then rolls him into the casket, slamming the lid shut.
Winner: The Undertaker

  • EA’s Take: The angle here between these two was pretty good and Kama doesn’t fit the stereotypical monster role that had primarily been Undertaker’s opponents through his years in the WWF, but as Jim Ross would say, this was still “bowling shoe ugly”. After months of torment from Kama and The Million Dollar Corporation, this would serve as the finale for these two in what would become pretty forgettable in the history books, primarily because the matches were just not good. Another behemoth of a man would be lined up for The Deadman, while Kama would be taken off of television in the fall before making an appearance in the 1996 Royal Rumble, then leaving the company again.

Video: We take a look at the issues between Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, which has seen The Excellence of Execution coming out on top. After losing a Kiss My Foot Match at King Of The Ring, Lawler has problems getting the nasty taste out of his mouth, leading to the recruitment of his demented dentist, Isaac Yankem, D.D.S.

Their match at Survivor Series ’92 was an instant classic and it was so good, that the guys decided to do a watch along here on this Episode!

On this Episode, the guys cover Summer Slam ’92, the first truly massive overseas PPV for the WWE. In the summer of 1992, the WWE traveled to Wembley Stadium in England and delivered an unforgettable event.

One of the Main Events saw the Macho Man, Randy Savage, defend the WWE Championship against the man who had retired him a year earlier, The Ultimate Warrior. The other Main Event saw Bret “Hitman” Hart defend his IC Championship against hometown hero, The British Bulldog. It ended up being one of the greatest IC title matches in history and here, on this Episode, the guys do a watch-along of that phenomenal battle. All that plus behind-the-scenes stories and lesser-known factoids the Big Four Project famously delivers time and time again.
