- The Roadie (w/Jeff Jarrett) vs. Jerry Flynn
Flynn gets in a few kicks on Roadie here. Roadie vs. the 1-2-3 Kid is announced for the next In Your House. Not a very good squash match for Roadie. He goes from a headlock to a hammerlock back to a headlock. Why? He grabs a half crab, but then pulls on the ropes for leverage? Why? He blocks a hurracanrana and drops Flynn with a powerbomb for the win at 2:38.
They show an old Jeff Jarrett vignette before he was a ‘star’. He went into a record studio office in Nashville, but nobody knows who he is and kicks him out. After Nashville rejected him, Jarrett made the album “Ain’t I Great?” went out to Las Vegas to make Nashville look stupid for turning him down. These two guys are too busy putting each other over that they just don’t when not to speak.
“With My Baby Tonight” music video airs – AGAIN.
Lex Luger and British Bulldog cut a promo on the Hog Man and Tatanka. They stand in their way of winning WWF tag team gold.
- Savio Vega vs. Mike Khoury
Vince announces Savio and Razor will take on Men on a Mission on July 23 In Your House. With that match announced, that’s pretty much your whole card already set. Three-quarter nelson on Khoury ends this one in 1:48.
Vince McMahon meets Sid and Ted DiBiase in this very ring. DiBiase is the mouthpiece while Sid stands there looking menacingly at Vince. He introduces the heel lumberjacks who surround the ring: IRS, Tatanka, Henry O. Godwinn, Jean-Pierre Lafitte, the Blu Brothers, Rad Radford, Mantaur, Bodydonna Skip, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Jimmy Del Ray, Kama, and Men on a Mission. WHATCHA GONNA DO, DIESEL? Sid is the master and the ruler of the world.
Yesterday on the Action Zone, HOROWITZ WINS! HOROWITZ WINS!
- Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs. Matt Hardy
No more High Voltage tights for Matt here. He’s just some cheap blue tights and white boots. Vince welcomes all the opinions that were given on the “AOL chat lines” on the King of the Ring. He reads you loud and clear. Vince also tells us that the President of the WWF Jack Tunney retired on July 4. He thinks that’s big news, but Lawler could care less. Hardy misses a moonsault press and eats a PEDIGREE at 3:11.
- Allied Powers vs. Henry O. Godwinn & Tatanka (w/Ted DiBiase)
The MDC ambush the Allied Powers, but Godwinn gets tossed out. He manages to trip up Luger into a DDT though to instantly make him *your* face-in-peril. Mostly punches and kicks for a while. Commercials! When we come back, Luger is still in trouble. However, Godwinn misses an elbow drop and Lex crawls to the HOT TAG TO BULLDOG! Sort of an awkward spot as Tatanka tries a floatover out of the corner into the Running Powerslam, but he hooks the ropes and falls on top of Davey Boy for two. Hourglass Suplex by the Bulldog gets a nearfall and the match breaks down. Godwinn trips up Bulldog this time from the outside. As Tatanka heads up top, he gets caught and nailed with the RUNNING POWERSLAM for the win. (5:51 shown) Nothing special. Just a win to put over the Allied Powers as they go for the tag titles on July 23. ¾*
We go again to Isaac Yankem’s dentist office. While he’s working away on some poor lady, Lawler is sitting there casually talking about Bret Hart. Lawler asks the helpless patient who her favorite wrestlers are. Apparently her mouth is full of cotton balls because all you hear is mumbling. Somehow both Lawler and Yankem understand her and she says a wrong name. OPEN WIDE! Yankem goes crazy on her with the drill as we close out the program.
NEXT WEEK: Shawn Michaels meets Irwin R. Schyster! Owen Hart & Yokozuna will be in action. We’ll get a special interview with WWF champion Diesel! Plus, Jean Pierre Lafitte will be here!
