Rebooking The WWF: Week 17, 1995
WWF RAW 4/24/1995
1. Fatu defeated Greg Johnson in 2:34 following a top rope splash.
2. Pretty Models (Paul Roma & Rick Martel) defeated John Paul & Mike Khoury in 2:15 when Roma pinned Khoury following a top rope elbow drop.
3. Kings Court w/ Rick Steiner: Jerry Lawler hosts the segment as he introduces “the rightful holder of the WWF Intercontinental Championship”, Rick Steiner for an interview. Rick tells Lawler that everyone is entitled to one lucky moment in life and at WrestleMania XI, his brother Scott got his one lucky moment when he pinned him for the championship. However, luck always runs out and that’s the cace for little Scott Steiner. Rick believes that lightning will not strike twice because he’s invoking his rematch clause and he wants a match where Scotty has nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. He can’t escape the ring to grab helpful weapons to beat his older brother. Lawler asks “are saying what I think you’re saying?!” and has a devilish smile. Rick nods and says on May 15th, he wants Scott Steiner inside a steel cage.
4. Duke Droese defeated IRS in 4:56 following the Trash Compactor.
5. Adam Bomb Vignette: Bomb is coming into the WWF and he’s coming in just a few weeks. The likes of Yokozuna, Jeff Jarrett, Psycho Sid and other rulebreakers better try their best to prepare for a dose of radiation.
6. Diesel Interview: Vince McMahon conducted an interview with the WWF World Champion Diesel. Diesel has the championship over his shoulder and has a smirk on his face as if he knows what McMahon is going to ask him. McMahon brings up how Diesel was at an all-time high when he won the title at WrestleMania XI, but just last week he suffered arguably the most embarrassing loss of his career in a tag match when Jeff Jarrett earned a three count. Diesel chimes in and wants McMahon to not forger that the 600+ pound King Yokozuna stuck his oversized butt into the match and could have ended his career with the leg drop on the floor. Diesel tells McMahon that Jarrett needed the help in order to keep him down for the three count and he’s certain that it would never happen in a singles match. McMahon says that Jarrett has bene gloating about the victory and has been telling anyone that will listen that he’s the uncrowned WWF World Champion! Diesel lets out a hearty laugh and regains composure telling McMahon that’s the funniest thing he’s ever heard. Diesel tells McMahon that he’s not going to hide from Jarrett, nor is he going to crack all these jokes. Jarrett has a pin over him, regardless of why caused it, and he’s going to let Jarrett get his shot at him for the gold. Diesel thinks that next week on RAW will be a great time to end the nonsense of Jarrett’s over inflated ego. McMahon likes the sound of that as Diesel plays to the crowd to end the segment.
7. Jeff Jarrett defeated Bob Holly in 6:11 following a jumping double arm DDT. After the match, Jarrett cuts a brief promo saying that he’s going to be the WWF World Champion next week on RAW and prove that he should have always been the leader of the Dynasty!
8. Undertaker Video: The video focuses on Paul Bearer cutting a promo while the Undertaker is putting together a casket, which is being made for Ron Simmons and the Movement. Bearer says that every Movement comes to an end, and sadly for Simmons this Movement will not have a positive ending. The Movement will cease to exist after May 15th.
9. Shawn Michaels defeated Brian Lee in 5:09 following a superkick. After the match, there appears to be a sound of someone slowly inhaling and then a gentle bite sound over the loudspeakers, which once again confuses Shawn Michaels.
10. Owen Hart Interview: Owen Hart storms over to the commentary table and he rips the headset off of Vince McMahon’s head. Owen says he is sick and tired of waiting in the backstage before he’s allowed to respond to what Bret Hart said last week on RAW. For many, many Yeats Owen has been waiting for the chance to prove to himself, Bret and all the wrestling fans and experts that Owen is the best of the Hart Family. He’s waited too long and is sick of all the praise that Bret gets knowing that he’s better than his older brother. Owen says that he accepts the challenge for May 15th and looks forward to making his brother tap out in the middle of the ring.
11. Kama Vignette: The vignette focuses on Kama working over a punching bag that has the faces of Bret Hart, The Undertaker, Diesel, Scott Steiner and Razor Ramon on it. Kama is going to be knocking them all out and he’ll be the top dog in the WWF in no time.
12. Hughie The Clown & Bam-Bam Bigelow Brawl: Hughie The Clown makes his way out to be interviewed by Jim Ross and he’s taking his time getting to the ring. Suddenly, Bam-Bam Bigelow comes up from behind and whacks Hughie over the back with a shovel. That’s some payback from two weeks ago when Hughie did it to Bigelow. Several officials come out and pull Bigelow away while Hughie is knocked out as Bigelow is laughing as he’s pulled backstage.
13. The British Bulldog defeated Doink the Clown in 8:16 following a running powerslam.
14. WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner defeated Scott Norton by disqualification in 10:09 following interference by Jeff Jarrett, Rick Steiner and Hunter Hearst Helmsley. After the match, Razor Ramon and WWF World Champion Diesel made the save. On the aisle way, Norton confronted Jarrett for getting involved in the match as the show went off the air with Jarrett trying to smooth things over with Norton.
