WWF: Monday Night Raw (11.01.93)

WWF: Monday Night Raw
November 1, 1993
Poughkeepsie, NY
Mid-Hudson Civic Center

The current WWF champs are as follows:
World Champion: Yokozuna (6/11/1993)
Intercontinental Champion: Razor Ramon (9/27/1993)
World Tag Team Champions: The Quebecers (9/13/1993)

Before the show, Bobby Heenan warns Bastion Booger that he shouldn’t stuff himself with so much food before a match. Why is he eating so much? BECAUSE IT’S ALL RAW. That doesn’t sound like a very valid reason to me.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan.

  • Razor Ramon vs. Bastion Booger

Razor has some fun with Booger’s man boobies to start. Before they really do anything, we take a commercial break. When we return, Booger lands a splash on Razor and only gets two. Ramon really doesn’t sell the splash and Booger gets tied up in the ropes so Razor can play with his fat some more. Bobby Heenan announces that today is his birthday and he’s got a party to go to when this show is over. Vince could not care less and doesn’t think the WWF fans care either, but I DO. Happy birthday, Bobby. He’s only 49! To the floor, Booger avalanches Razor up against the ringpost. Finally, he sells something. Back inside, Booger grabs the bearhug. Razor punches his way out, but tries to slam the big guy. No dice. Powerslam by Booger gets two. Back to the bearhug. Vince wants to talk about Tatanka’s health condition. Heenan hopes Booger continues to wear Ramon down for IRS and Diesel. Razor punches Booger back because what else can you do with him? Razor staggers Booger until he can slam him. RAZOR’S EDGE is impossible. Booger backdrops him over and delivers the BATCAVE. With Booger sitting on him, Razor hooks the arms with his legs and gets the three-count. (7:11 shown) Just a match to get Razor a little more over. Not much more to it than that. ¾*

Survivor Series Report with Todd Pettengill. For some reason, Pettengill hypes the Riddick Bowe vs. Evander Holyfield rematch set for 11/6 before anything WWF is mentioned. Survivor Series is scheduled for November 24 LIVE on PPV. Here is the card as it stands on November 1:

  • MAIN EVENT: The All-Americans (Lex Luger, Tatanka, Rick & Scott Steiner) vs. The Foreign Fanatics (Yokozuna, Ludvig Borga, and the Quebecers)

We go to the ring where Vince McMahon is standing by with the Foreign Fanatics. Jim Cornette (manager of Yokozuna) is certain that Tatanka will never be seen again. Cornette creams at all the possibilities of the advantage his team could have over the All-Americans. He thinks that the All-Americans might be at even a bigger disadvantage after Ludvig Borga’s match next Monday night. Johnny Polo insults the All-Americans intelligence in a joke that goes over everybody’s heads. Vince announces that Ludvig Borga will face Scott Steiner next week. McMahon offers the possibility that Borga could be eliminated from his team next week. Borga thinks that’s just an American dream. Cornette closes this interview up by putting over the Survivor Series concept of “eliminate to survive”. Yoko sneaks a BANZAI in there. Awesome. Bobby says all these guys will be at his birthday party. HA!

  • Mr. Perfect vs. The Executioner

Vince mentions that Perfect is scheduled to be a part of Razor Ramon’s team at Survivor Series. Unfortunately, his nagging back injuries would take care of that. More talk about Bobby Heenan’s birthday party. Vince mentions that we’ll be hearing from Randy Savage via telephone before the end of the show. Perfect works the leg real good for an extended period of time to weaken him down for the PERFECTPLEX at 4:53.

ICOPRO – Razor Ramon stores the stuff in his basement!

We now go to J-E-DOUBLE-F J-A-DOUBLE-R-E-DOUBLE-T outside the world famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville. He rags on Billy Ray Cyrus and wants to slap him in the mouth. He’d also like to smack Razor Ramon, Men on a Mission, and the 1-2-3 Kid. Once he proves he’s the world’s greatest wrestler, everyone will be clamoring to have his debut album.

  • The Smoking Gunns vs. Well Dunn (w/Harvey Wippleman)

Timothy Well can’t handle Billy, so he tags out to Steven Dunn. Well Dunn – formerly known as the Southern Rockers in the Portland territory. That’s a territory I wish I could get my hands on. Headlock and headscissors counters just serve to piss off Billy causing Dunn to retreat to his corner. Billy and Bart work on the arm of Dunn for a bit. Bart becomes *your* face in peril as Well helps out Dunn and snaps Bart’s neck off the top rope. Pretty standard stuff as Well Dunn work off a chinlock. Billy gets the hot tag. BAAAAAACK BODY DROP to Dunn. He’s a house of fire when Wippleman trips him up as he comes off the ropes for the DQ. (7:54 shown) Well, that was a cheap finish for a rather pedestrian match. *½

We go to Randy Savage via telephone. Bobby makes fun of his condition, but that’s before Savage announces that he’ll be back on Raw next week. Savage hangs up the phone on Heenan, which is a lost gesture that is really hard to do these days via Skype.

  • Adam Bomb (w/Harvey Wippleman) vs. Virgil

There’s some criss-cross work to start. Virgil finally makes contact with a crossbody block. Adam Bomb takes a powder and gets knocked around. Virgil chases after Wippleman and gives up after a lap around the ring to head back inside to dive out on top of Adam Bomb. Back inside, Adam Bomb takes over with a backbreaker. Big man offense follows. Virgil makes a brief comeback culminating in a missile dropkick for 1-2-NO! Adam Bomb NO-SELLS (maybe?) a crossbody out of the corner. ATOM SMASHER gets the three-count. (5:24) Virgil is just a wet noodle out there.

NEXT WEEK: Scott Steiner versus Ludvig Borga! Crush will be here! Macho Man returns!
