World Wrestling Federation '93

Recommended Posts

As the World Wrestling Federation neared the end of 1992 things were set for a new generation of Superstar to take the helm, that was to begin with Bret Hart defeating Ric Flair for the WWF Championship. Unfortunately no matter how well made a plan is, one thing can always change things-Injury. ..and no man is immune to such things, not even Bret Hart. Just a week before Hart was scheduled to win the WWF Title for the first time he faced Razor Ramon on Prime Time Wrestling. The match progressed fine until Hart was to be knocked over the top rope. Hart went over with more force than expected and was unable to correct himself in time and landed straight down with all his weight on his right foot. Hart immediately buckled to the floor, Hart told the referee as he checked on him to do a count-out finish but Ramon felt it wasn't a suitable end to the match. He exited the ring and whispered to Bret as he pulled him up and rolled him to the ring. Hart unable to stand remained on the mat as Ramon came in and taunted Bret. Razor stood over Hart and bent down and slapped him across the face, he looked out to the crow and laughed but Bret quickly hooked him into a small package and got the three count to win the match. Hart picked up a big win and the crowd had no idea just how seriously he was hurt. This was how the year 1992 would end for "The Hitman". As the year came to a close and Hart went to every doctor and surgeon around, getting 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th opinions we would learn he would not be able to step back into the ring for at least a year....

And so we begin, the year 1993 is upon us, Ric Flair remains the WWF Champion and God only knows what other changes may occur due to the ripple effect started by the injury of Bret Hart.

WWF SuperStars

January 2nd, 1993

Commentary Team - Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby "The Brain" Heenan

Bam Bam Bigelow def. PJ Walker - An easy win for the big man Bam Bam. Bigelow dominated Walker from the opening bell. Walker got in a small amount of offense but the tables were quickly turned back in Bam Bam's favor after he caught Walker coming off the ropes with a massive clothesline. Bigelow smelling blood went in for the kill from there finishing Walker off with his patented diving headbutt.

The Headshrinkers(Fatu & Samu) w/Afa def. Ross Greenberg and Reno Riggins - Much like the opening match this was a very one sided bout. Samu and Fatu overpowered Greenberg and Riggins with ease. The Headshrinkers seemingly toyed with there opponents as they could have easily put them away at anytime but Afa instructed them to continue to punish them. Eventually Afa finally gave his boys the ok and Fatu put Riggins out of his misery.

SuperStars returns from a commercial break as newcomer Mike Tenay stands by with the WWF Intercontinental Champion, "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels.

Tenay: "Thank you for joining me, Shawn..."

Michaels: "The pleasure is without a doubt all yours, not many people get to stand this close to a true living legend like myself."

Tenay: "The year 1992 was a busy year for you and now you step into 1993 and into a new bunch of challengers for your Intercontinental Title...."

Michaels: "Now hold on there just a second, when you're talking about "The Heartbreak Kid" there's no challenge involved. The only thing there is a new group of little boys who want to try become men by beating me...but just like in '92 this year will be no different. I will enter the ring as the Champ and I will walk out with the gold still around my waist looking as only I can. Now if that's all I got better things to do than stand around talking to you..."

Shawn walks off but not before tipping his sunglasses down to the tip of his nose and giving a little wink...

Tenay: "The Intercontinental Champion....as confident as ever. Back to ringside."

Debut Match

Dean Malenko def. Max Moon - In his WWF debut match Dean Malenko of the great Malenko wrestling family was pitted against Max Moon. The match started out quickly with Moon taking it to Malenko....but Dean was doing nothing more than waiting to pick his spot. This came as he came off the ropes and ducked a clothesline attempt by Moon. Moon turned around only to get nailed with a dropkick right on the knee. Moon went to the mat and Malenko went to work on his leg. After several minutes and a few failed comeback attempts by Moon, Malenko locked him up and turned him into the Texas Cloverleaf getting the victory by submission.

High Energy(Owen Hart & Koko B. Ware) def. Barry Hardy and Barry Horowitz - Hardy and Horowitz tried to get an early advantage by jumping Koko and Owen before the bell rung...and for a sort time it appeared to work, but it only took one mistake for Hart to explode onto Hardy and turn the tables around. Owen and Koko from there put things in high gear and Hardy and Horowitz couldn't keep up with them. Owen put Hardy away after hitting a high cross body from the top turnbuckle to get the pinfall as Koko made sure Horowitz wasn't able to interject himself.

WWF SuperStars returns to the Main Event as....

Jerry "The King" Lawler def. Crush - The veteran Lawler spent much of this match on his heels as Crush just overpowered The King. Lawler though picked his spots and broke any rule he could to get the advantage over Crush. Lawler poked, jabbed, choked and low-blowed his way into a successful offense. The King racked up a few near falls but just couldn't put Crush away for the three count. Lawler went to put Crush away with a piledriver but got blocked and back body dropped. Lawler got up only to get powerslamed. Crush continued working over Lawler looking to pick up the win but Lawler able to force Crush into the a turnbuckle he had exposed earlier in the match gave him his opening to strike. Lawler caught Crush as he came back out of the corner and rolled him up. that along with his feet on the bottom rope gave The King enough to secure the victory. Lawler though not waiting around quickly rolled out of the ring and got out of there as WWF SuperStars came to an end...

Raw looks awesome, Especially for 1993. Savage versus HBK sounds so killer as well as Perfect/Flair. I see both men retaining their titles, Though the thought of Perfect/Flair at WM9 for the title would rock. Hopefully 1993 will be the year of the phenom :D

January 4th, 1993

Commentary Team - Vince McMahon & James E. Cornette

McMahon: "Welcome everyone to the debut of Monday Night Raw! I'm Vince McMahon alongside James E. Cornette and what a night it is going to be. We have three titles on the line, Intercontinental, Tag Team and of course the Main Event where Ric Flair will defend the World Heavyweight Championship against r. Perfect..."

Cornette: "You sure said a mouthful, McMahon. This is ging to be a historic night to say the least."

Just before McMahon can get in a response the attention turns to the entranceway as WWF President Jack Tunney steps out carrying an unidentified championship belt.

McMahon: "Well looks like we're going to start things off with something from the President of the WWF, Jack Tunney..."

Tunney stands in the ring with the belt in one hand and a microphone in the other as he begins his address...

Tunney: "Ladies and gentleman I welcome you all to a historic night in the WWF, the very first edition of Monday Night Raw...."

Tunney pauses a brief moment as the crowd gives it's obvious approval. He waits for things to die down before he goes on...

Tunney: "Now I have three announcements to make so if you can remain silent and let me get through this the quicker we can get to what you all came to see. All right, now first of all in the Main Event tonight I am saying right here and now this match will be a strict one on one affair, if anyone and I mean anyone decides to get involved in anyway they will be suspended indefinately."

McMahon: "A good call by the WWF President, no one wants to see that match end anyway other than one man beating the other cleanly..."

Tunney: "Now the next two announcements concern the Royal Rumble pay-per-view less than two weeks away. First of all in the Main Event, the Royal Rumble match itself as usual will consist of thirty superstars in an over the top rope battle royal....but this year, the winner of that match will become the number one contender to the WWF Championship and will face the champion in the Main Event at WrestleMania IX!"

Nothing can stop the crowd from letting loose after that announcement. Tunney raises his hand to get them to settle down, eventually they do and he goes on...

Tunney: "Just one final announcement, as you have no doubt noticed I am carrying a championship belt in my other hand. This belt will commemorate the WWF's former flagship show, ladies and gentleman I give you the Prime Time Championship!"

Tunney holds the belt up as the crowd lets out a massive pop. Tunney again gives them the signal to settle down before he continues...

Tunney: "There will be an eight man tournament to crown the first champion. The finals of this tournament will take place at the Royal Rumble and the tournament itself will begin...Right now!"

The crowd reacts as expected as Tunney exits the ring. He walks over and hands a paper to The Fink as he steps into the ring to introduce the first match....

Prime Time Title Tournament Round 1

Dean Malenko def. Crush - In this opening first round bout Malenko found himself in quite a predicament in only his second WWF match as he faced the much larger and more powerful Crush. Malenko used his greater speed to keep Crush on the move. Malenko hit and moved on the big man trying to put a dent in his armor. Eventually after taking a pretty good beating himself, Malenko managed to chop Crush down to size enough to hook in the Texas Cloverleaf and that was all she wrote.

Monday Night Raw returns as Mike Tenay was in the back with The Tag Team Champions, Money Inc. and manager Jimmy Hart.

Tenay: "I am here with the WWF Tag Team Champions, Ted DiBiase and IRS along with Jimmy Hart. Thank you for joining me, in a few moments you will defend your tag team titles against an energetic tag team in Owen Hart and Koko B. Ware. Your thoughts?"

Tenay moves the mic towards DiBiase but Hart steps in...

Hart: "Let me tell you something Mike Tenay. You are looking at the greatest tag team ever put together. Two of the best technical wrestlers in the business. Now Owen Hart and Koko B. Ware may be a couple guys who can move around that ring but speed and energy doesn't matter much when you're being put to sleep by the Million Dollar Dream, baby!"

Tenay goes to speak to DiBiase who simply lets out one of his trademark sinister laughs before the three men walk off and we cut back to ringside...

WWF Tag Team Championship

High Energy(Owen Hart & Koko B. Ware) def. Money Inc.(Ted DiBiase & IRS)© w/Jimmy Hart - The match started out just the way Owen and Koko wanted. They went straight into high gear and took it right to the champions. DiBiase and IRS spent much of the early portion of the match trying to find a way to slow there opponents down. Eventually the champs found an opening as DiBiase was able to roll out of the way of a top rope dropkick attempt by Hart. DiBiase pounced on Owen and he and IRS put the screws to him. DiBiase and IRS kept Hart cut off form his corner, even Jimmy Hart got involved by distracting the referee whenever it looked like Owen may make a tag to either allow the champs to double team and make an illegal switch or keep the referee from seeing the tag.

McMahon: "Koko B. Ware got the tag but the referee didn't see it and is making him leave the ring...this must be frustrating for Koko, he's watching his partner get torn apart and can't do anything about it..."

But don't count Owen out just yet. DiBiase was set to lock in the Million Dollar Dream, he got it hooked on Owen but Hart able to get over to the corner and use the turnbuckles to kick himself backwards ontop of DiBiase for a pin and a near fall before IRS came in to break it up. Seeing this as a chance to get himself into the match Koko came in and jumped all over IRS. The two started going at it as DiBiase and Hart started to get to there feet. DiBiase the more aware of the two clotheslined Owen knocking him into the referee. Owen and the ref go down, DiBiase goes over to help IRS with Koko as Jimmy Hart gets on the apron with IRS' metal case in hand. He hand it to IRS as DiBiase holds Koko up. IRS winds up and swings....

McMahon: "IRS NAILS DIBIASE! OH MY! Koko B. Ware somehow able to break free of DiBiase just in time and that metal briefcase just got drilled into the forehead of The Million Dollar Man!"

Koko B. Ware quickly drop-kicks IRS out of the ring before he can even react to his little mistake. Jimmy Hart still on the apron gets knocked down as well as Owen Hart clotheslines him off the apron before climbing to the top turnbuckle and coming off onto DiBiase with a big splash from the top! Owen with the cover as the referee comes to and makes the three count!

McMahon: "WE HAVE NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS"

Cornette: "I don't know what to think, McMahon. It wasn't the cleanest of victories but in this case that's more the fault of the now former tag team champions...I don't think DiBiase will be very happy once he wakes up."

Tenay: "Well I guess first off I have t ask where is Jimmy Hart?"

The Mountie: "That's none of your business, Tenay! And for that matter it doesn't matter, The Mountie is his own man! The Mountie can speak for himself and he can damn sure beat anyone in the WWF!"

Tenay: "Well speaking of which, tonight you step into the ring against none other than The Undertaker..."

The Mountie: "The Undertaker, everyone acts like he's some supernatural being that cannot be stopped....but it doesn't matter to The Mountie. Natural, supernatural...alive, dead, undead they all have to obey my law! The Mountie's law, and I always get my man!"

Ramon simply smirked at him before chucking his toothpick in Bossman's face. Not to thrilled by this Bossman floored Razor with a monster right hand and the match was underway. The two men from there brawled back and forth for much of the match. As things came to a head Ramon found himself on the arena floor where he took hold of Bossman's nightstick. Ramon concealed it well. Bossman reached out to pull Ramon back into the ring only to get the nightstick driven right across his skull. Ramon dropped the weapon to the floor before entering the ring and pinning Bossman for the victory.

WWF Intercontinental Championship

"Macho Man" Randy Savage def. "The HeartBreak Kid" Shawn Michaels© w/Sensational Sherri by DQ - In a definite Main Event quality match former WWF Champion Randy Savage challenged one of the brighter young stars and current Intercontinental Champion, Shawn Michaels. Michaels also one of the more cocky wrestlers in the WWF got right into the face of Savage, but Savage not intimidated in the least by HBK. Savage though gets under the skin of the champion after he points to Sherri on the floor and makes a rather suggestive gesture.

McMahon: "Michaels fails to get under the "Macho Man's" skin but Savage has succeeded as he goaded HBK into throwing the first punch...."

Which Savage easily blocks as Michaels threw it wildly, Savage then floors HBK with a shot of his own. The match went on with Savage on the advantage for a good deal of it, finding a way to push Michaels' buttons at every turn....and after throwing everything he could think of at Savage and being unable to put him away Michaels reached his breaking point. He gestured out to Sherri who slipped him the Intercontinental title belt. Savage made his way over and went to pull Shawn to his feet but HBK was waiting for him and floored him with the belt.

McMahon: "Shawn Michaels just blatantly using that belt as a weapon right in full view of the referee, who with obvious reason is calling for the disqualification."

Michaels then slid out of the ring, sweat dripping down his body as Sherri rushed over to help him. The Fink announced Savage as the winner but Michaels made his way to the back exclaiming "I'm still the champion, I'm still the champion..."

Raw returns once again to a face we are becoming more and more familiar with, that of Mike Tenay. This time Tenay is standing by with the WWF World Heavyweight Champion "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Tenay doesn't even get a word out before Flair interjects himself with a long and loud....

Flair: "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Mike Tenay, get ready for the interview of a lifetime! You are standing next to the greatest World Heavyweight Champion of all time, jack! Now I've been hearing people talk from miles around saying that the days of the Nature Boy are coming to an end. They say I've passed my prime and it's only a matter of time before someone younger knocks me off the top and takes my place....Well that ain't gonna happen! It ain't gonna happen next week, next month or next year...and it certainly won't happen tonight. Maybe someday someone will come along that will take the Nature Boy to the mat and make him see his career flash before his eyes but it isn't going to be you Perfect! Tonight the Nature Boy flies high and at the end of the night he will still be the World Heavyweight Champion..."

Flair begins to walk off but stops and gives another quick, "WOOOOOOOOO!" before walking off camera and we cut back to ringside...

Overall: 88

The Undertaker def. The Mountie - Despite his words earlier in the show The Mountie seemed a tad off his game without Jimmy Hart at his side. The Canadian Lawman made a good effort but it seemed tonight that he could do nothing to The Undertaker. The Mountie threw everything he had at the deadman but he just kept coming. The Mountie became desperate and grabbed his cattle prod from his corner, he was set to use it but when he turned around all he got was a mouthful of 'Takers boot. The Mountie went down and his weapon flew to the floor. The Undertaker stood poised waiting. The Mountie stumbled to his feet only to get scooped up and drilled int the canvas with the Tombstone! Undertaker crossed the arms of The Mountie across his chest for the pin.

McMahon: "What a victory for The Undertaker!"

Cornette: "He's probably the most dangerous man in the WWF right now, McMahon...and h just showed why."

McMahon: "He sure has and...what in the world? It's...It's Razor Ramon!"

Ramon sneaking down the aisle as The Undertaker kneels in the ring paying homage to the urn carried by Bearer. Ramon scoops up the cattle prod dropped by The Mountie earlier and slides into the ring. Bearer looks up and sees him coming but before he can say anything to warn The Undertaker it's to late. Ramon charges the cattle prod and jabs it right into the back of his neck shocking him senseless. The Undertaker drops to the mat, Bearer makes a move towards Razor, but Ramon easily dispatches of him with a single right hand. Bearer drops the urn and falls to the mat. Ramon picks it up and places it by the head of The Undertaker before taking the cattle prod and sticking it into the ribs of the Undertaker. Officials rush out to put an end to this but Ramon walks away of his own accord, but not before tossing a toothpick at Bearer who has propped himself up in one of the corners.

Cornette: "Maybe I spoke to soon, McMahon...Razor Ramon may very well be the most dangerous man in the WWF!"

McMahon begins to speak but nothing understandable comes out as suddenly the lights in the arena go out completely and we hear....

DONG.....DONG....

The sound echoes across the arena as a single light comes on over the ring where we see The Undertaker still in a prone position with the urn at his head, but then suddenly he sits up!

McMahon: "HE SAT UP! HE SAT UP! I don't believe it! Is there anything that can stop him?"

That's just what one Razor Ramon is thinking as he feels the gaze of The Undertaker burning it's way through him. Razor slowly backs up the aisle with a look of utter disbelief on his face as The Undertaker does nothing more than sit in the middle of the ring staring out at him....

WWF World Heavyweight Championship

"The Nature Boy" Ric Flair© def. Mr. Perfect - The anticipation for this match was high, the crowd was on the edge of there seats as both men were introduced and met in the middle of the ring. Flair and Perfect stared into each others eyes, neither saying a word, neither blinking. Finally Flair put an end to the tension with a "WOOOOOOOO!" right in Perfects face followed by a hard open handed slap. Perfect recoiled back then lunged forward with everything he had slapping the champion right across the face. Flair taken off guard drops down to a seated position and Mr. Perfect looks down at him and let's out a "WOOOOOOOO!" of his own before tilting his head back, spitting out his gum and slapping it away.

McMahon: "Flair taken by surprise here, I don't think he expected such a response from the challenger here...."

Flair got to his feet slowly and the two men circled each other as the bell rung to officially start the match. The two men battled back and forth or the first ten minutes of the match with neither man able to really get a clear advantage over the other....and the frustration was beginning to show on both of there faces. Both men tossing everything in there arsenal at there opponent only to kick out, escape the hold or respond with an equally hard shot of there own. As we neared the eighteen minute mark things began to shift as Mr. Perfect found himself with a real upper hand for the first time in the match and looked to be on the verge of becoming the new WWF Champion.

McMahon: "Mr. Perfect could very well be only moments away from winning the World Heavyweight Champion, we could be seeing history in the making...."

Cornette: "Don't count Ric Flair out until his shoulders have been pinned to the mat for a three count, McMahon. He hasn't gotten to where he is by being easily beaten..."

But Flair was on the verge of being beaten here as the challenger began to hook him up for the end. Perfect with Flair's head hooked and his leg cinched, ready to execute the Perfect-Plex. Mr. Perfect started to hoist Flair up but only got him halfway up when Flair was able to shift his weight back taking Perfect down with him and hooking him into a small package for the pin...."ONE.....TWO.....THREE!" Perfect kicks out of it but a spit second to late....

McMahon: "OH MY! Ric Flair retains the title after an intense battle. He has once again proven why he is such a great champion...."

Flair to his feet as the referee raises his hand in victory as he is announced the victor as Mr. Perfect sits on the mat...just a look of shock on his face. Flair now turns his attention to the man who was one move away from beating him and extends his hand. Perfect stares at it for a moment before taking it, Flair pulls Perfect to his feet and the two look at each other for a moment before shaking hands....

Cornette: "A great show of sportsmanship here, McMahon. Ric Flair is truly a class act..."

McMahon: "As is Mr. Perfe...."

Before McMahon can finish his thought Mr. Perfect clotheslines Flair out of nowhere. The entire audience goes dead silent in shock at what they are seeing as Perfect just stomping on the exhausted World Champion. Perfect hoists Flair up and hooks him up into the Perfect-Plex once again, this time though he hits it. Perfect holds onto it for a few seconds before letting go and getting to his feet.

McMahon: "Mr. Perfect showing his true colors here tonight, ladies and gentleman...a poor sport and a sore loser!"

Cornette: "And now he's taking the WWF Championship belt..."

Perfect with the belt in hand looks at it and down to Flair as he simply says, "This title is mine! Nobody beats Mr. Perfect! NOBODY" Perfect then drops the belt down on the mat next to Flair before spitting on the champion and walking away as Monday Night Raw comes to a close....

Good show, HBK/Savage could be a good feud, But Sherri wasn't with Michaels at the start of '93 IIRC. I think she had already left him by then. Anyways, Perfect turning could work, But I'd prefer him as a top face against Flair. I like the way you're easing Malenko, But I hope you don't push him too fast. Owen/Koko shocked me with the titles, But it could lead to bigger things for DiBiase. A Razor/Taker feud is excellent too. Keep up the good work :D

Good show. The tag title switch really shocked me. I hope you keep Perfect a face and have a big feud with Flair. Im interested to see how a new title will work. It seems a little too similar to the IC title.

I meant that it sounded similar because it was a mid-card title, like the IC title. I hope it doesnt get too jumbled and it be passed around alot, like when the WWF had the IC and Euro, and even Hardcore titles all at once. But I think it will be good if you keep it as a lower mid card title and keep it and the IC title's prestige seperate.

Round 1 Prime Time Title Tournament

The Dynamite Kid def. Doink The Clown - The Dynamite Kid making his big return to the WWF here, and with a chance to become the first Prime Time Champion as he faced the mischievous Doink the Clown. Doink tried to sucker Dynamite in at the start of the match with a handshake but Dynamite didn't fall for it. From there Doink used any and every opening to try to pick up the win no matter what he had to do but Dynamite just would not go down. The match came to an end as Dynamite moved out of the way of a Whoopee Cushion attempt by Doink. Doink just landed flat on the mat and Dynamite pulled him up, sent him in the ropes and caught him with a powerslam as he came off. Dynamite from there went to the top rope and put Doink away with a swan dive headbutt.

Good show, I don't know about Dynamite Kid being back though, Wasn't be pretty broken down by '93? I'm looking forward to seeing the HBK/Savage feud continuing. That's gonna be an awesome feud. My pick for the tournament is either Bigelow or Dynamite. Looking forward to Raw, Especially the HBK/Undertaker match. Keep up the good work :D

Good show. I too am a bit skeptical about Dynamite being back, but it's your diary. Interested to see how the PT Title tourney works out. Looking forward to Raw. It looks stacked again!

Commentary Team - Vince McMahon & James E. Cornette

Monday Night Raw comes on the air and right to the action as the participants of the opening match are already in the ring...

Prime Time Tournament Semi-Finals

Bam Bam Bigelow def. Tatanka - In a solid opening bout the Beast from the East and the Native American Warrior were both looking to move onto the Royal Rumble and there chance to become the first Prime Time Champion. Bigelow as usual used his size to his advantage. Tatanka learned early on not to try to match power with Bam Bam as he was constantly shrugged off and tossed to the mat. As the match progressed Tatanka began using his speed more and more against Bigelow and was on the verge of picking up the win. Tatanka went to the top turnbuckle and was looking to put Bigelow away, he jumped off but Bigelow caught him in midair in a bear hug before turning and slamming Tatanka to the canvas. Bigelow then went to the top turnbuckle himself and came off with a flying headbutt to put his opponent away and move on to the finals.

Tatanka lost overness from this match.

Bam Bam Bigelow gained overness from this match.

McMahon: "What a way to kick things off here on Monday Night Raw! Bam Bam Bigelow moving on to the Royal Rumble where he will fight to become the first Prime Time Champion, we will learn who he will face later tonight in the other semifinal match between Dean Malenko and the Dynamite Kid..."

Cornette: "And that's only the beginning, McMahon. This is going to be a big night, Randy Savage is going to face Scott Hall, Yokozuna will be in a handicap match to prepare for the Royal Rumble and of course the Main Event as Shawn Michaels defends his title against The Undertaker..."

McMahon: "You said a mouthful, James E. After the shocking events that occurred after last weeks Main Event who knows what could happen...speaking of which, tonight we will also hear from the man shocked us all with his brutal attack of the world heavyweight champion, Mr. Perfect....I for one can't wait to hear what he has to say for himself...."

Yokozuna def. Jim Powers, Max Moon and PJ Walker - In what was called a warm-up match for the massive Yokozuna as he prepared for the Royal Rumble he took on three men....and it lived up to the hype as nothing but a warm up for the near 500 pounder. Powers, Moon and Walker with no strategy to there attack came at Yokozuna individually, a big mistake as Yoko simply caught each of them coming in and dispatched of them with ease. Powers was first as he ran right into a thrust kick. Walker followed and got nailed with a massive belly to belly suplex. Moon was last and got hit with a right hand followed by a headbutt before getting scooped up and slammed back down. Yokozuna then delivered massive leg drops to all three men before dragging and stacking them all up in the corner and hitting the Banzai drop for the pin.

McMahon: "Oh my! What a dominating showing by the monster, Yokozuna...I don't see how anyone will be able to eliminate him come the Royal Rumble. Right now I'm being told that Mike Tenay is standing by in the back with one half of the former Tag Team Champions, "million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase. Take it away, Mike...."

We cut away from ringside to the backstage area as we do indeed see Mike Tenay along with Ted DiBiase...

Tenay: "Well Mr. DiBiase last week we saw you lose the WWF Tag Team Titles to High Energy after IRS hit you with his metal briefcase..."

DiBiase: "I didn't lose anything, Tenay! That simp IRS is the one who lost the tag team titles when he hit me with that case. He was the one that cost me my tag team title, all I got to show for what happened last week is this bump on my head."

Tenay: "It seems that both IRS and Jimmy Hart are seemingly absent here tonight..."

DiBiase: "And it's going to be a long time before you see either of them around here again, Tenay! No one causes the Million Dollar Man to lose what's his and gets away with it, nobody! That's all in the past now though, I'm looking to the future and bigger things...I'm looking towards the Royal Rumble and walking out with a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania....No matter what it takes, no matter how much I have to spend I will walk out of the Royal Rumble the winner...and you can take that to the bank!"

DiBiase laughs his usual maniacal laugh before walking off...

Randy Savage def. Razor Ramon - In what could easily be called the match of the night Ramon and Savage went at it from the opening bell and never let up for an instant. The two traded shot after shot with each other in the middle of the ring, seemingly evenly matched neither of them able to get the upper hand on the other. Ramon though broke the ice between them with a rake of the eyes followed by a boot to the gut and then lowered the boom on Savage.

McMahon: "Razor Ramon as usual showing he's not above taking any shortcut to beat his opponent...but it's going to take a lot more than a rake of the eyes to defeat the "Macho Man""

And Ramon would try everything else over the course of the match....but Savage would just keep coming at him. As the end of the match neared Ramon was looking to put Savage away after hitting him with a low blow to end the Macho Man's offensive flurry. Ramon hooked Savage up and gave the sign for the Razor's Edge when suddenly the lights went out...

McMahon: "What in the world..."

Cornette: "What's going on here, McMahon?"

McMahon: "That's what I would like to know..."

Just as that is said a loud crash is heard in the ring, a moment later the lights come back up as we see Razor Ramon flat on his back in the middle of the ring with his arms crossed over his chest. Savage a bit surprised like everyone else but he quickly regains his senses and goes to the turnbuckles and climbs up. Savage comes off onto the already out cold Razor Ramon before covering him for the pin...

McMahon: "I think Razor Ramon just learned, what goes around comes around. What a night this has been, up next we will hear from Mr. Perfect, don't go away..."

Raw returns as we see Mike Tenay, but unlike usual this time he stands in the middle of the ring....

Tenay: "Ladies and gentleman please allow me to introduce to you, Mr. Perfect..."

Perfect's music hits as he steps out from the back to a very mixed reaction from a confused crowd. Perfect makes his way down the aisle and gets into the ring where Tenay waits for him, the music fades away as Tenay begins to speak again...

Tenay: "Well I'm sure everyone knows why you are out here tonight. Last week you were about as close as anyone can get to becoming the new World Heavyweight Champion, but when that did not happen you viciously attacked champion, Ric Flair. Now the question is, what do you have to say for yourself?"

Tenay moves the mic towards Perfect who goes to speak but pauses for a moment. The crowd still unsure of how to react sits relatively silently as Perfect finally speaks...

Mr. Perfect: "I've been thinking all week about what I was going to say....I'm still not sure what I was thinking myself. I did what I did, I'm not going to make excuses for myself. I came that close to becoming what every man that steps into a wrestling ring thrives to become, the World Heavyweight Champion....and when I failed to achieve that all sense was lost. I looked at Ric Flair and didn't see the man who beat me...I didn't see the World Heavyweight Champion, I saw a man who killed my chance to stand at the top and be the champion...I'm not going to stand here and apologize for what I did. It's done, it's over and nothing can change that. I'm not going to ask for your forgiveness, Ric Flair...I don't know if I deserve or even want it. What I am going to do is ask you, right here and now for another shot at your title."

Tenay: "You're challenging Ric Flair to face you again for the World Heavyweight Title?"

Mr. Perfect: "That is exactly what I am doing....like I said, done is done, I'm not going to make excuses for what I did after our last match but the bottom line is I was one move away from putting an end to your reign as champion, Flair. You know it, I know it, the world knows it...If you're the champion I know you to be I know it;s eating away at you that you barely waked away with the title, that if you were one second to slow I would have hit the Perfect-Plex and I would have beaten you. So I'm challenging you, Royal Rumble, Mr. Perfect Vs Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Title...I'll be waiting for your answer."

Perfect exits the ring and starts back up the aisle to a much less confused crowd as they cheer for the man who could be the next WWF Champion...

Prime Time Tournament Semi-Finals

The Dynamite Kid def. Dean Malenko - In the second Semifinal match of the Prime Time Tournament match we saw a much more evenly matched up Dynamite Kid and Dean Malenko faced off. Malenko went right for the legs of Dynamite trying to take away his speed and did quite well. Dynamite though didn't go down without a fight and constantly escaped or reversed several of Malenko's holds frustrating Malenko. The match continued on coming close to the ten minute mark as both men came close to the win time after time but unable to get the three count. The end of the match came as Malenko was looking to lock in the Texas Cloverleaf, he got Dynamite set but Dynamite wasn't going to go down easily as he fought against it. Malenko with the legs hooked tried to turn Dynamite but he was able to reach down and pull out enough strength to flip Malenko away. Dynamite started to get up but got hit with a dropkick from Malenko. Dean then went out and to the top turnbuckle. Dynamite slowly to his feet and turned as Malenko jumped off with a high cross body but Dynamite caught him in the air and hit a big time powerslam! Dynamite gave the signal from there and went up top himself. Dyanmite measured Malenko and leaped off hitting the swan dive headbutt to pick up the win and go on to the finals.

Raw returns to a close-up of the WWF Intercontinental Championship. The camera pans back until we see the arrogant grin of the champion, Shawn Michaels. It goes back further until we see Sensational Sherri clinging to him on one side and Mike Tenay standing on the other...

Tenay: "Tonight you defend the Intercontinental Title in the Main Event...but we'll get to that in a moment, now last week you faced Randy Savage in what was a great match. That is before you deliberately got yourself disqualified to keep from losing the title..."

Michaels: "Now you just hold on right there, Tenay! Shawn Michaels doesn't need to get himself disqualified to hang onto any title. I can beat anyone, anytime, anywhere...especially a broken down, washed up has been like Randy Savage! I did Savage a favor last week, now he's one of the few who can say they hold a win over the HeartBreak Kid..."

Tenay: "Does this mean you will give Randy Savage another match? He has challenged you recently, do you accept?"

Michaels: "As much as I'd love to, Tenay...I'm a busy man, I got a full plate in front of me. Plenty of people who haven't yet had a chance to step in the ring with and get humiliated by Shawn Michaels. Randy Savage had his shot, now he has to get back at the end of the line and wait for his turn to come back around. If he would have been a bit quicker with the challenge I might have been able to squeeze him in at the Royal Rumble..but unfortunately I already have an opponent...But come on Tenay...Savage is old news, let's talk about my upcoming dominating victory over The Undertaker..."

Tenay: "Alright, well tonight you will be in the Main Event as I said before as you defend the Intercontinental Championship against The Undertaker...a man who many think will indeed walk out of here the new Intercontinental Champion..."

Michaels: "Now hold it right there, sport. No one is walking out of here with this title other than ME! You got that? You know what, forge this...this interview is over, jack."

Michaels and Sherri walk off as Tenay sends it back to ringside...

McMahon: "Well it's time for our Main Event of the evening, and what a match it will be as Shawn Michaels defends the Inter..."

Before McMahon can complete his sentence the familiar music of none other than the WWF World Heavyweight Champion blares across the arena. The camera moves to the entranceway as Ric Flair steps out. Flair struts down the aisle and climbs up the ring steps. He gets to the apron but before he steps into the ring he rears back and lets out a loud, "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Flair then gets in the ring...

Flair: "Am I fashionably late enough? WOOO! I was riding down to the arena in my stretch limo when I heard what Mr. Perfect had to say for himself. Not gonna apologize? Fine with me, Perfect! Not gonna make excuses for your actions? Good! I don't want any excuses, what I want is your ass! You think you can attack the Nature Boy and get away with it? You think you can smack Ric Flair around and not have to face the consequences? If that's what you thought than you got another thing coming, JACK! WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ROYAL RUMBLE! You want it? YOU GOT IT! Me and you, Ric Flair Vs Mr. Perfect for the World Heavyweight Championship. This time there won't be any shadow of a doubt who the better man is, there won't be any last second reversal to beat you Perfect. This time I'm going to walk down the aisle as only the Nature Boy can and I'm going to lay you flat down in the middle of the ring...lock on the figure four and walk away with the World Heavyweight Title still around my waist! I'll see you at the Rumble, Mr. Perfect.....WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

WWF Intercontinental Championship

"The HeartBreak Kid" Shawn Michaels© w/Sensational Sherri Vs The Undertaker w/Paul Bearer - Michaels not looking as cocky as usual as The Undertaker was introduced. HBK quickly hit the floor as 'Taker entered the ring, he slipped back in as the Undertaker went to his corner to remove his excess ring attire and Michaels used this opening to attack from behind. Michaels rushed in and splashed Taker into the corner but the Undertaker just turned around and stared at the Intercontinental Champion freezing him in place. Michaels finally able to break from the hypnotic gaze swung at 'Taker only to get blocked and floored with an uppercut from the dead man. Undertaker hoisted HBK up and lifted him over his shoulder. Taker carried Michaels over to the corner and just dropped him face first across the top turnbuckle.

McMahon: "The Undertaker just dominating the Intercontinental Champion early on here. This could be a short match if Michaels doesn't find a way to get himself into this..."

And it would be a bit before that would happen as The Undertaker continued to throw Michaels around the ring like a rag doll...but all things come to an end and even the Undertaker can be cut down to size. Michaels managed to get on the offensive after slipping out of the ring and making 'Taker chase him around. HBK slid back into the ring and as the Undertaker was following in Sherri grabbed hold of his ankle giving Michaels an opening which he took nailing The Undertaker with a baseball slide kick sending him crashing into the metal guard rail. Michaels followed this up by launching himself over the top rope and coming down across the chest of The Undertaker driving him into the concrete floor. HBK slamming 'Taker into everything he could find at ringside before finally taking the match back to the ring.

Cornette: "You can never count Shawn Michaels out, McMahon. Just when you think he's done for he finds an opening and springs into action."

Michaels continued to take it to the challenger going for pinfall after pinfall but unable to put the dead man away. The frustration showing on the face of the champion as sweat dripped off his body. Michaels looking to put this match to bed as he measured the Undertaker for the superkick. 'Taker rose to his feet and turned as Michaels charged out but Undertaker ducked under it. HBK turned around and got a massive hand around his throat. 'Taker going for the chokeslam but Michaels with a low blow then quickly dropped and rolled out of the ring. Michaels over and grabs his title belt and headed towards the aisleway knocking Paul Bearer down in the process.

McMahon: "Shawn Michaels is walking away, he's going to try and save his title again just like he did last week....OH MY! Maybe that won't happen this time..."

Michaels backing up the aisle doesn't see the figure emerge from the entrance. HBK finally backs up to far and bumps into it. A look of horror crosses the champions face as he slowly turns around and looks right into the face of "Macho Man" Randy Savage. Out of complete surprise Michaels falls backwards to a sitting position as he tries to beg Savage off. Michaels slowly gets up and tries to catch Savage by surprise with a right hand but Savage blocks it and nails Michaels with one of his own. Michaels spun around from the impact but doesn't fall as he goes face first into the chest of the Undertaker who had snuck up the aisle behind him.

McMahon: "It doesn't look like Michaels is going to escape with the title here tonight!"

'Taker dragging Michaels back to the ring. The Undertaker throws Michaels back into the ring and follows in. 'Taker shots Michaels hard into the corner and follows in with a clothesline. Michaels just stumbles out and falls to the mat. 'Taker stands waiting as Shawn pulls himself up. Undertaker hits the ropes and goes for a big boot but HBK able to pull the referee in the way and he takes the boot across the face. The referee down and like on cue another figure comes out from the back caching Savage from behind with a clothesline.

McMahon: "Razor Ramon!"

Cornette: "I'm guessing Ramon doesn't like the idea of being even, McMahon."

After taking Savage out of the picture for the moment Ramon rushes to ringside and grabs a chair before he slides into the ring. Ramon going right for the Undertaker and takes a hard swing but 'Taker able to dodge it and boot Ramon in the gut making him drop the chair. 'Taker then scoops Ramon up but Michaels from behind nails the dead man with a superkick to the back of the head! The Undertaker drops Ramon but only goes down to one knee. The Undertaker gets back to his feet t the surprise of all...

McMahon: "What does it take to put The Undertaker down?"

We're about to find out as The Undertaker's attention is back on the Intercontinental Champion giving Ramon his opening. Ramon with the chair again swings and nails The Undertaker across the back of his head driving him down to one knee again but this time Shawn Michaels puts him down the rest of the way with a second superkick right on target. Michaels covers 'Taker as Ramon drags the referee over and smacks him across the face a few times before slipping out of the ring. The referee barely conscious sees the pin and makes the three count.
