Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan go over what we are going to be seeing tonight on RAW.
Opening Contest: WWF Intercontinental Champion Razor Ramon defeated Bastion Booger in a non-title match: Booger has music now, but it is simply a guy snoring. Ramon plays around with Boogers man boobs which greatly offends Booger. Booger connects with a big splash as they comeback from commercial. Booger gets tied up in the ropes following a elbow by Ramon. Ramon doesn’t do anything with the advantage, other than pat the belly of Booger. Booger with a running splash onto Ramon who was against the ring post on the floor. Booger sends Ramon back first into the apron a few times. Booger locks in a bear hug and the move is hyped up as Booger’s finisher. Ramon battles out of the hold with a few right hands and attempts a scoop slam but is unable to lift Booger up. Booger regains control with another bear hug. Ramon gets a second wind and drives Booger down with a scoop slam. Booger reverses the Razors Edge. Booger drops down on Ramon but Ramon reverses into a roll up for the win. *1/4
Todd Pettengill welcomes everyone to another Survivor Series 1993 report. Todd mentions that Tatanka was ambushed on WWF Superstars where Borga whacked Tatanka over the back with a chair and pinned Tatanka with his pinky. Yokozuna connects with the Bonzai Drop. Lex Luger tried running down but got attacked by the Quebecers.
Vince McMahon is in the ring with the Foreign Fanatics. Jim Cornette quickly mentions that Tatanka was beaten up and that Tatanka will never return to wrestling. Cornette says that leaves the contest to be a 4 on 3 match. Johnny Polo calls the All American a group of idiots. Ludvig Borga will face Scott Steiner next week on RAW. Borga says it will be more than an honor to beat Scott Steiner. Cornette says that at Thanksgiving it will be the end of the All Americans.
Second Contest: Mr. Perfect defeated The Executioner: Throughout the match, Perfect works on the left knee of the Executioner. Perfect says that he wants some competition. Seconds later, Perfect connects with the Perfect Plex.
Jeff Jarrett promo is up next. Apparently he is in a Poughkeepsie, NY local hang out area. Jarrett is rather jealous of Billy Ray Cyrus. Jarrett believes he is better than the following men: Men on a Mission, Razor Ramon and the 1-2-3 Kid are all on his hit list.
Third Contest: Smoking Gunns defeated Well Dunn by disqualification: Pretty good counters early on between Billy Gunn and Steven Dunn. Gunns with a vertical suplex/cross body combo on Dunn. Timothy Well drops Bart Gunn throat first across the ropes interfering of course. Bart Gunn is double teamed by Well Dunn. Bart manages to comeback with a face plan on Steven Dunn. Billy Gunn comes in and cleans house, until Harvey Whippleman trips up Billy Gunn to cause a disqualification.
Randy Savage calls in and says that he will be back on RAW next week. Savage says that a certain someone will be on RAW also next week. Savage says he will be all over that person. Savage hangs up on Bobby Heenan.
Main Event: Adam Bomb defeated Virgil: Virgil has fallen off the face of the earth to the point that he doesn’t even get a live entrance anymore. A weak cross body by Virgil which manages to knock Bomb off his feet. Virgil continues the attack on the floor. Virgil leaps over the top rope and connects with a splash on Bomb. Bomb gains control with a dropkick and moments later a clothesline. Virgil fights back with a dropkick from the top rope for a near fall. For now the third time, Bomb doesn’t catch Virgil on a cross body. Bomb with a power bomb and picks up the win.
Next week, Scott Steiner will face Ludvig Borga. Crush will also be in action. Randy Savage will return to commentating as well.
End of show
My Take: From a wrestling standpoint this weeks show was very lackluster. Bastion Booger is far too limited to be able to put on a good match with any top tier talent. I like the mean streak that Mr. Perfect showed during his match. I find it quite remarkable that ever since he beat Ric Flair back in January that Mr. Perfect has lost a lot of steam. Adam Bomb seemingly is getting worse every passing week. Though, Virgil isn’t the greatest talent so perhaps Bomb was made to look bad because of the talent he has been working with lately.
