Monday Night Raw
June 27, 1994
White Plains, NY
Westchester County Civic Center
The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Bret Hart (3/20/1994)
Intercontinental Champion: Diesel (4/30/1994)
World Tag Team Champions: The Headshrinkers (5/2/1994)
They take us back to last week’s King’s Court with Duke Droese and show us the very thing Jack Tunney apologized for, which was the TRASH CAN VIOLENCE~!
We get comments from both guys. Apparently, Jack Tunney is forcing Lawler to apologize. He of course doesn’t like it, but he does anyway.
Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Randy Savage.
- Bam Bam Bigelow (w/Luna Vachon) vs. Mabel (w/Oscar)
Mabel takes a pounding down to the mat, but comes up NO-SELLING and hits a legdrop. Luna hops up on the apron and takes a tumble to the floor as Bigelow whips Mabel into her. While Oscar is checking on Luna (because he’s an all-around nice guy), Bigelow heads out and tosses him aside. Nobody messes with his main squeeze. Mabel crashes on Bigelow and Luna from the apron and makes it back inside before the ten-count. (3:29) This was a mess from the opening bell. While Bigelow and Luna are bickering, out comes Ted DiBiase to try and settle things down. Hmm. ½*
Let Us Take You Back to Superstars, June 11. Ted DiBiase appeared on the Heartbreak Hotel segment re-introducing us to the “Undertaker”. Then on the June 25 Superstars, Underfaker beats PJ Walker in his first TV match.
- IRS vs. Rich Myers
IRS stretches this ham-and-egger and puts him away with the PENALTY at 2:34. You know it best as the STF.
Time for the King’s Court. Tonight’s guest is Jim Neidhart. He turned on Bret because he was never grateful for all the great advice he had given him over the years. If it wasn’t for Neidhart, Bret would have never been a two-time WWF champion. The only reason he’s still WWF champion is because he’s just holding it until Owen Hart beats him and secures his rightful place as the best Hart. That brings out the King of Harts himself wearing his VINTAGE black tights, the robe, the crown, AND the scepter. Not that I’m not surprised by it, but Gorilla immediately discrediting what Owen is saying as hogwash and giving him no credibility is just bad. He beat Bret fair and square at WrestleMania, he beat three guys in one night to become King of the Ring, just give your newest top heel his due. Give him a title shot, Bret!
- WWF World Tag Team Champions The Headshrinkers (w/Captain Lou Albano) vs. The Executioners
This one goes a little long. Since Gorilla mentions there’s something going in the back between Ted DiBiase and an unnamed individual, it makes me wonder if they wanted to get a camera back there and didn’t for whatever reason. Anyways, Macho Man’s favorite tag team of all-time (?!?) destroys these two masked jabronis and hits the Flying Splash out of the corner for the win at 4:55.
In the back, we catch Ted DiBiase seemingly working out a deal with Bam Bam Bigelow. When they spot a camera, DiBiase sends Nikolai Volkoff over to beat up the cameraman.
- Kwang (w/Harvey Wippleman) vs. Mike Moraldo
This match starts immediately when the break ends. Kwang does everything he does: spits the mist and kicks a lot. SPINNING HEEL KICK ends Moraldo in 3:28.
- Lex Luger vs. Mike Bell
DiBiase watches on from the curtain like a pervert. He giggles at the sight of Lex Luger. This one is over once Luger applies the TORTURE RACK at 2:57. Lots of posing in the spotlight after the match. Savage considers joining him, but that seems kind of gay.
Before we go, Ted DiBiase announces from the back that he has just signed Bam Bam Bigelow to his MDC. If it was so hush-hush earlier, why act so loud and proud about it ten minutes later? Lex Luger is next, because everybody has a price for the Million Dollar Man! We’ll see about that, Ted. We’ll see.
NEXT WEEK: Jeff Jarrett battles Tatanka! Plus, the Underfaker makes his RAW debut! Don’t forget about the KOTR encore presentation tomorrow night at 8PM!
