Rebooking The WWF: Week 8, 1995

WWF RAW 2/20/1995
1. Razor Ramon defeated Arn Anderson in 6:45 following the Razors Edge. After the match, Ramon begs Jeff Jarrett to get into the ring but Jarrett fakes out Ramon before heading backstage with Anderson.
2. Crush defeated Tom Johnson in 2:11 with the Kona Vice.
3. Owen Hart & Chris Benoit Interview: Jim Ross introduces Chris Benoit and Owen Hart to come out for an interview. Both Benoit and Owen come out with cocky grins on their faces as Ross begs the question to Owen “why did you turn on your brother Bret?” Instead of Owen answering, Benoit chimes in and tells Ross that for his entire life, Owen Hart has been knocked down as everyone praised Bret. Benoit notes that Bret got all the title shots and public appearances while Owen was always sitting at home waiting to get an opportunity. Benoit mentions that it was Owen who won at the Royal Rumble last month over Bret, but yet Bret continued to get praised. Benoit tells Ross that he never liked Bret, and while he had issues with Owen in the past, he always respected Owen knowing he was the best Hart of the family. Owen appreciates the kind words and goes on to say that Bret never appreciated his talents and always held him down. It took him awhile, but luckily he realized that Bret didn’t have good intentions and saw him as a threat. Owen agrees that he is a threat and is a threat to every single WWF championship. Owen finishes off saying that there isn’t anything Bret can say to him that will change what has happened. Owen is his own man and has found someone who respects him in Chris Benoit and that’s where his loyally remains.
4. Ric Flair defeated Scott Taylor in 2:43 with the figure four. After the match, Paul Bearer pushed a casket towards the ring, but Flair quickly left ringside and went to the back shaking his head in disapproval.
5. Hakushi defeated Barry Horowitz in 3:14 following a top rope moonsault.
6. Jack Tunney & The Movement Interview: The WWF World Tag Team Champions Tatanka and Carlos Vega are in the ring with WWF President Jack Tunney to discuss future competition. Tunney puts over the champions for having defeated every top tag team on the WWF roster. Tunney believes the Movement is a dominating force, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t unbeatable. Tatanka and Vega both tell Tunney that there aren’t any teams around that can beat them. Tatanka says they’ve beaten the Smoking Gunns, the Quebecers, Men on a Mission and everyone else numerous times. This is a movement that can’t be stopped and will not be. Tunney agrees, and that’s why he is here to tell the Movement that he has been in talks with a legendary tag team that has won numerous tag team championships and they will be making an appearance next week on RAW. Tunney isn’t going to reveal the team and suggests that the Movement show up next week to get a glimpse a possible new challenger to their tag team championships.
7. Randy Savage defeated Jerry Lawler by disqualification in 8:35 when Doink the Clown got involved. Hughie The Clown also appeared and attacked Savage managing to hit a moonsault. Lawler, Doink and Hughie stand tall over Savage.
8. Ron Simmons Interview: Vince McMahon had a sit down interview with Ron Simmons earlier in the day. Simmons tells McMahon that for the past ten years, the WWF has made millions upon millions of dollars with the prototypical white guy as their champion. Simmons notes that every time there was a popular African American superstar or any superstar that wasn’t white, who was ready to take over the top spot, the WWF sabotaged them to make them worthless. McMahon doesn’t agree with that statement whatsoever. Simmons recalls the days of Jimmy Snuka jumping off a cage, Junkyard Dog, Tony Atlas and countless others. Where are those guys today? They aren’t in the WWF. They are at smaller shows selling autographs for ten dollars because the WWF wants a white man at their face. Simmons leans forward and says “You Vince… you want the white man as the face of your company.” Hogan has been on the top for ten years and you try to get him as the champion even when he doesn’t deserve it. Bret Hart was your champion, Lex Luger, Ultimate Warrior and Randy Savage. That’s all going to change at WrestleMania. At WrestleMania XI, Simmons promises McMahon that the era of Hulkamania will come to an end and the Movement will be the strongest it’s ever been. Once he beats Hulk Hogan, he will go for the WWF World Champion and he can’t wait for the day when Vince is forced to address him as his world champion. Simmons is going to love every minute of it.
9. Bam-Bam Bigelow defeated Bob Holly in 5:07 following a diving head butt.
10. Shawn Michaels defeated Brian Lee in 6:45 following a super kick. After the match, Michaels planted a kiss on Tamara. Lex Luger appeared at the top of the aisle way during the match but was still not impressed.
11. Hulk Hogan Video Package: The same video package from last week is aired asking if Hulk Hogan can get through the Movement and continue on with Hulkamania.
12. Hunter Hearst Helmsley Interview: Jim Ross interviewed Hunter Hearst Helmsley regarding Mr. Perfect deciding to put his career on the line for a match with Helmsley at WrestleMania XI. Helmsley tells Ross that he didn’t believe it when he heard it, but it’s something he’s always wanted to do. Helmsley accepts the offer to take on Perfect with his career on the line. Hunter can’t wait to put an end to Perfect’s career and show the world that Mr. Perfect is nothing but an overrated gum spitter who never could win the big one when it counted.
13. Duke Droese defeated IRS in 6:44 following a spine buster.
14. WWF World Champion King Yokozuna & WWF Intercontinental Champion Rick Steiner defeated Diesel & Scott Steiner in 15:06 when Yokozuna pinned Scott Steiner after a leg drop, after Rick hit Scott over the back with his headgear.
