WWF: Monday Night Raw (09.27.93)


Monday Night Raw
September 27, 1993
New Haven, CT
New Haven Coliseum

The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Yokozuna (6/13/1993)
Intercontinental Champion: Shawn Michaels (6/6/1993)
World Tag Team Champions: The Quebecers (9/13/1993)

Before we see anything else, WWF President Jack Tunney appears on the screen and tells us that the WWF Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels has been suspended for not defending his title within thirty days. Therefore, the WWF had no choice but to vacate the Intercontinental championship. Next week, a 20-man battle royal will be held and the final two competitors will meet to determine a NEW WWF Intercontinental champion. Thirty days since his SummerSlam IC title defense would be September 29, but wrestling companies never could tell time. Shawn had actually quit the WWF around the same time as other unrelated suspensions such as the Steiner brothers and Doink the Clown. A bombshell has just been dropped, ladies and gents!

Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Randy Savage, and Bobby Heenan. Read the rest of this entry
