- The 1-2-3 Kid vs. Shawn Michaels
Shawn wears a fake IC belt out to the ring. As far as Bobby Heenan and Shawn are concerned, HBK’s still the IC champ anyways. Loads of reversals and counters to start until Kid finally just kicks Shawn out to the floor. Springboard dive wipes out Shawn some more. Back in, Shawn flips out of a suplex, but still takes a German suplex for two. Kid stays adamant with a headlock for a while. He walks up the ropes with it one time too many as Shawn breaks the hold with a back suplex. Shawn headscissors Kid out of the corner down to the floor, but winds up being whipped into the ringpost. Kid wants to CANNONBALL off the apron, but Shawn catches him for a powerslam! That’s not good for your back. After a commercial break, HBK starts delivering backbreakers in the ring. Kid fights off a superplex, but takes a dropkick in the gut on the way down. Cover, 1-2-NO! Extended backbreaker over HBK’s knee, but Kid kicks out of that. Shawn misses a clothesline and eats a spinning heel kick as both men are down. They fight right back up into a double-KO! Back up again, Kid unleashes his kick combo in the corner and delivers a Moonsault Press for 1-2-NO! CANNONBALL SPLASH FROM THE TOP, but Shawn rolls out of the way. Fool him once, shame on me. Fool him twice, shame on you. After a second commercial break, we see Shawn hitting the Kid with a Superkick! From there, Shawn proceeds to mimic Razor Ramon and gives the Kid the RAZOR’S EDGE for 1-2-NO! He pulls Kid up off the mat. He gives Kid a second RAZOR’S EDGE and when he goes for a third one, Razor Ramon appears and pulls Kid by his ankles out of the ring. Shawn comes out and gets a good slap on Razor. Not cool, chico. He gives chase as they head over by the entry way. I’m pretty sure HBK has been counted out or something. (10:30 shown) Shawn fake trips and as Ramon backs him toward the curtain, Diesel sneaks a punch in from behind the curtain and decks Ramon! That stops Razor long enough for Shawn to tear his shirt off and choke him out so he can give Ramon the RAZOR’S EDGE not once, but TWICE on the concrete floor. This was good action as you might expect, but I liked it better in 1996 when the roles were reversed. ***
- WWF Tag Team Champions The Quebecers (w/Johnny Polo) vs. Mike Walsh & Bert Centeno
Since this is a ham-and-egger match, Johnny Polo sits back in a lawn chair and flips through the Palm Beach Polo magazine. McMahon hypes a phone call to Randy Savage who is over in the UK on a tour with some other WWF superstars. The Quebecers have a big laugh with these two as they put away Centeno with the QUEBEC CRASH at 4:26. Afterwards, they put Centeno in the lawn chair and clothesline him over for another big laugh.
Royal Rumble ad airs. January 22 LIVE on PPV!
After his brother Bret Hart was chosen as the WWF superstar of the year, we hear some comments from Owen Hart. Yeah, that’s great and all, but what about Owen? He has some plans for a big surprise very soon for everybody watching.
- Doink the Clown (w/Dink) vs. Tony DeVito
Doink wheels Dink down to the ring in a baby stroller. DeVito gets taken down to the mat every which way for over five minutes. Meanwhile, Dink plays with a little squeeze toy irritating ref Danny Davis. Finally, Doink hits the WHOOPIE CUSHION and scores the three-count at 5:58. Even Vince was growing weary of this match.
We check in with J-E-DOUBLE-F J-A-DOUBLE-R-E-DOUBLE-T in Nashville. He walks around with a Ralphus-type who looks like a silent movie cartoon character with his derby hat, bow tie, and suspenders. They walk up on a saxophone player who never got a break in Nashville. Jarrett reminds us he’s using the WWF to get to the tip top of the country music business.
- Crush (w/Mr. Fuji) vs. Tony Roy
We’re joined on the horn by Randy Savage. Vince tries to get over the narrative that Jack Tunney overstepped his bounds by suspending Savage from the commentary table. Nevertheless, Savage is going to do the thing next week. DIG IT! Heenan gives Savage some advice that he should stay in the UK and keep away from Crush. Savage says some stuff. It’s hard to make it all out. Bad connection or something. Heenan says the reason the connection is bad is because it’s hard to talk on the phone when you’re hiding under the bed. Ha! Oh yeah, the match. Crush wins with a press slam into a hotshot at 4:10.
The WWF: Unbelievable! Apparently, Penn State fans never know when to quit harassing WWF superstars. Weird!
After making Gorilla Monsoon jokes last week and all night tonight, he throws Bobby Heenan out of the building. This was pretty hilarious, sad, and a fitting exit all at the same time.
NEXT WEEK: Randy Savage returns to the ring to meet Headshrinker Fatu! Special interview with the Undertaker! Adam Bomb and the Smoking Gunns will be joining us for action.
