WWF: Monday Night Raw (10.31.94)


Monday Night Raw
October 31, 1994
Burlington, VT
Memorial Auditorium

The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Bret Hart (3/20/1994)
Intercontinental Champion: Razor Ramon (8/29/1994)
World Tag Team Champions: Shawn Michaels & Diesel (8/28/1994)
Women’s Champion: Alundra Blayze (12/26/1993)

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Randy Savage. After nine glorious years, this would prove to be the final time we would see Randy Savage in the WWF.

  • Lex Luger vs. Bob Backlund

Lex mocks him to start and gets the better of Bob wrestling-wise. Backlund does not approve. He goes after Luger’s arm for a bit obviously looking to soften him up for the CFCW. Backlund hits a suplex, but boy that was bowling shoe ugly. He delivers a hammerlock slam as we spy CREEPY Tatanka watching on from the tunnel to take us into commercial. When we come back, Luger fights out of a hammerlock and makes a one-armed comeback taking Backlund corner to corner. After he hits the powerslam, Tatanka runs down to distract Lex so that Backlund can lock on the CFCW. While Backlund has Luger down on the mat, Tatanka jumps in the ring and disqualifies Backlund! (8:19 shown) While he’s stuck in the hold, Tatanka puts the boots to Luger until refs and agents try and push him back. To finally get Backlund off Luger, Randy Savage gets UNPROFESSIONAL~! and interjects himself into the situation by leaping into the ring and scaring away Backlund. Typical RAW main event. *½ 

When we return, Savage tells Vince it’s hard to sit in his chair and do nothing. Shoot comments that aren’t meant to be shoot comments? He tells Backlund that he’s out of line, bruddah, and Savage vows to not say that more than once.

  • The 1-2-3 Kid vs. Tony DeVito

After Kid’s performance yesterday on the Action Zone, it takes him a little longer than usual to beat DeVito. He still wins with a Flying Legdrop at 3:17.

Todd Pettengill has your Survivor Series Report set for Wednesday night November 23 at 8 EST/5 PST from San Antonio, Texas.

  • MAIN EVENT: WWF Champion Bret Hart vs. Bob Backlund
  • MAIN EVENT: Casket Match with Special Troubleshooting Referee: Chuck Norris – Undertaker vs. Yokozuna
  • Guts N Glory (Lex Luger, Adam Bomb, Mabel, and the Smoking Gunns) vs. The Million Dollar Team (Bam Bam Bigelow, Tatanka, King Kong Bundy, and the Heavenly Bodies)
  • The Bad Guys (Razor Ramon, 1-2-3 Kid, Davey Boy Smith, and the Headshrinkers) vs. The Teamsters (Diesel, Shawn Michaels, Jim Neidhart, Owen Hart, and Jeff Jarrett)
  • Clowns R Us (Doink, Dink, Pink, and Wink) vs. The Royal Family (Jerry Lawler, Sleazy, Queasy, and Cheesy)
  • King Kong Bundy vs. Bert Centeno

He’s big! He’s large! He’s huge! He’s mammoth! The AVALANCHE isn’t enough as Bundy drops a knee on poor Centeno and demands a five-count for the win at 2:44. 

Elsewhere, IRS is found at John Dough’s tombstone telling him he still has to pay $121.37 to the government in taxes. He starts by repossessing the flowers off his grave. Even after you’re six feet under, you still have to pay your taxes. Vince calls this a public service announcement from Irwin.

Time for another installment of the King’s Court. His guest tonight will be the Undertaker and Paul Bearer. Lawler wants to know if Bearer thinks history will repeat itself at Survivor Series. Bearer pulls out of a copy of the latest WWF magazine, which highlights Undertaker’s “gravest matches” showing off who he has beaten over the past four years. One by one, keep turning the page, Undertaker has gotten rid of a lot of people in the WWF. As for Yokozuna, no one will save him this time like at the Royal Rumble. Lawler wants to know why Chuck Norris is going to be at Survivor Series if Taker isn’t afraid of Yokozuna. Bearer says that he didn’t bring in Chuck Norris, the WWF brought in Chuck Norris to prevent any déjà vu. Taker feels it is time for Yokozuna to be held accountable for his actions. He will pay at the Survivor Series and will then REST IN PEACE.

  • Jim Neidhart (w/Owen Hart) vs. Tony Roy

Savage puts over his final USA network premiere movie starring Christopher Walken and Lorraine Bracco in “Scam”. Savage – “…and I’m not doing it anymore. I’m on strike!” HA. After the serious beating Neidhart places on Roy, he wins via submission with a camel clutch at 4:13.

After the break, Neidhart puts Tony Roy back in the camel clutch as Owen snaps some Bret Hart glasses on his face. HA. Excellent.

Elsewhere, Vince McMahon checks on Lex Luger in the locker room and asks him about Tatanka. Luger has his shoulder iced. We never hear what Lex has to say, but I guess it doesn’t matter. Tatanka jumps him at the end of the interview for more fun and games to close out the show.

NEXT WEEK: Bret Hart and Davey Boy Smith meets Owen Hart and Jim Neidhart! It’s a family affair!

DON’T MISS THE ACTION ZONE ON SUNDAY AT NOON, JERKS. Mabel takes on Yokozuna! Talk about a step down from the past two weeks.
