Rebooking The WWF: Week 23, 1995

WWF RAW 6/5/1995
1. Paul Roma defeated Bart Gunn in 5:06 following a top rope elbow drop. After the match, Pretty Models and the Smoking Gunns brawled.
2. Razor Ramon defeated Chris Kanyon in 3:44 following the Razors Edge.
3. Kings Court w/Ron Simmons: Jerry Lawler hosts another King’s Court segment and says that his guest this week is a man that he’d be honored to share a crown with. He’s the leader of the Movement, Ron Simmons! Simmons makes his way out with the WWF Tag Team Champions Tatanka & Carlos Vega by his side. Simmons tells Lawler that while he appreciates the comment about sharing a crown, he will share nothing with anyone. Besides, the crown is not what he’s truly after. Simmons declares that he will win the KOTR, but he will not walk around with a crown on his head. He will not become a fake version of himself, which he’s sure the WWF would want him to become. Simmons has one mission in mind and that mission has never and will never change. He wants to become the WWF World Champion. Simmons notes that he’s never considered the number one contender and by winning the KOTR he will force WWF officials to give him his rightful opportunity to kick WWF World Champion Diesel’s ass and take the championship that belongs to him. Simmons tells Lawler that the Movement has the tag titles and will continue to have them and when he wins the World Championship the power will belong to the Movement to control the WWF once and for all. The Movement pose in the middle of the ring to end the segment.
4. Fatu defeated Paul Diamond in 3:19 following a top rope splash.
5. John Bradshaw defeated Jimmy Del Ray in 5:02 following a lariat.
6. Jeff Jarrett Interview: Backstage, Jim Ross conducted an interview with Jarrett regarding the KOTR and his relationship with Scott Norton. Jarrett tells Ross that there was a minor bump in their friendship when Jarrett took over as the leader of the Dynasty, but Norton has found his role and after being by his side to defeat Ramon to be in the KOTR, the Dynasty is picking up steam. Jarrett tells Ross that Norton is the muscle and he’s the brain of the operation. They have agreed that Jarrett will be the man to put the Dynasty back on top and that they’ll be looking for new members in the coming weeks to join the group. “We’ve thrived with just the two of us and there’s no telling what we can do when we find more people to join our ranks.” Jarrett is confident that he’ll win the KOTR and at SummerSlam he’ll put Diesel flat on his back for a three count and walk out the WWF World Champion and we can bet on that.
7. Hakushi defeated Chris Hamrick in 5:53 following a top rope moonsault.
8. Bam-Bam Bigelow Interview: Todd Pettengill conducted an interview with Bigelow regarding the KOTR tournament. Bigelow tells Pettengill that he’s the baddest man in the WWF and he’s a wild card because nobody knows how he’s going to feel on any given day, including himself. Bigelow is going to the KOTR and his flames are burning at a high level. He’s ready to take out all the competition and get his shot at WWF World Champion Diesel at SummerSlam. Bigelow notes it’s a perfect event for him… the event of the summer headlined by a man full of fire and determination. He’s going to do what he has to do to get in the main event and nobody is going to stop Bam-Bam!
9. Shawn Michaels defeated Barry Horowitz in 3:27 following a superkick. After the match, Jim Ross tried to get a word with Michaels regarding the mysterious voices that have been heard, but Michaels told Ross that he’s not worried about it and he’s focused for the KOTR. “Nothing is going to stop me or distract me from realizing my dream of being the WWF World Champion.”
10. Ted DiBiase Interview: Jim Ross conducted an interview with Ted DiBiase in the middle of the ring regarding the KOTR main event tag team match. DiBiase tells Ross that his team of Sid and Luger is by far the strongest team to ever come together in WWF history. DiBiase says that they are looking forward to facing the two top champions at KOTR, because when they win it will prove that the Corporation should be the champions and that both Diesel and Scott Steiner are fake champions. They haven’t had true competition, but when they get in the ring with Sid and Luger the fans will see through their heroes and they will praise true champions in Sid and Luger. DiBiase finishes off by saying that at the pay per view everyone will see the end of Diesel and Scott Steiner careers. They will lose in such an embarrassing fashion they will hand the titles over and never be seen ever again!
11. IRS defeated PJ Walker in 2:55 with an STF.
12. King of the Ring Report: Todd Pettengill hosts the segment promoting the pay per view highlighting the men who have qualified for the tournament and the tag team main event.
13. Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott Steiner in a non-title match to qualify for the 1995 King of the Ring Tournament following a Pedigree. During the match, Ted DiBiase had distracted the referee during various Steiner pin attempts.
