    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond



    Summerslam

    Monday Night, August 31, 1992
    Wembly Stadium, London, England

    “THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER”


    The ICO-PRO sign flashes across the scene as Vince McMahon narrates in the background- “Summerslam is brought to you by ICO-PRO! For everybody who cares about their bodies!”


    “The Biggest Party of the Summer”- Summerslam cuts in with a couple of still shots from some of London’s biggest landmarks. We see a line of excited fans wrapped around the world famous Wembly Stadium, as they all cheer and wave as the camera pans across them. The thousands waiting in line are all excited for Summerslam. A bunch of young kids chant for The British Bulldog, as they hold his WWF Hasbro action figure high in the air. Also, tons of fans have their powder blue Sid Justice t-shirts on. It is pure pandemonium outside of Wembly Stadium as the anxious fans await their entrance inside the stadium for Summerslam!

    The screen then goes black before the Summerslam logo pops up. Vince McMahon narrates in the background- “SUMMERSLAM! THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMERRRR! COMING TO YOU FROM THE WORLD FAMOUSSS WEMBLYYY STADIUM!” We then see still shots of WWF Champion Ric Flair, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Sid Justice, Jake Roberts & Hulk Hogan.

    We then cut inside of Wembly Stadium where 80,000 screaming fans are on their feet, cheering on the start of the show. Down at ringside we are welcomed by our announce team of Vince McMahon, Gorilla Monsoon, and Bobby Heenan. Heenan is wearing a king’s crown, while McMahon and Monsoon poke fun at Heenan saying he is the king of the bathroom and nothing else. Heenan says he won’t be staying in the announcer’s booth too long tonight, and says he just wanted his presence felt for tonight’s big show. McMahon reminds us that all roads end tonight here at Summerslam. The crew then run down tonight’s card before telling us we are starting things out with a bang in the form of some tag team action!


    Tag Team Grudge Match
    The Beverly Brothers vs. Owen Hart & British Bulldog

    The Beverly Brothers’ catchy entrance music hits as the crowd is at a fever pitch of boos. Beau and Blake, along with their sneaky manager-The Genius, soak in the boos as they make their way down the long entrance aisle. They hop into the ring and taunt the fans as The Genius asks for a microphone from ringside. The crowd is booing so loud you can barely hear The Genius as he attempts to speak.

    “So this is London, England, huh?”

    The crowd cheers at The Genius’ question.

    “What a dump!”

    The crowd now begins to boo louder than before, drowning out anything The Genius is about to say.

    “You may wonder why I have a microphone right now, and why my dynamic tag team of Beau and Blake haven’t taken off their robes just yet. I am sorry to let you all down, but tonight these two will not be disrobing. Why, you may ask yourself? Because their shoulders are a bit sore from the tetanus shots they received before flying over to this plague infested city!”

    Another round of deafening boos from the hot London crowd.

    “Instead, tonight I will be reciting a poem that I put together. It’s not much, but it’s probably the best poem any of you illiterate hacks have ever heard.”

    *Clears throat*

    “We didn’t want to come here, this country is trash.
    We are only here to win our match and collect our cash.
    I’d rather eat glass than take a city tour.
    I now understand why…”


    The Genius’ poem is suddenly interrupted by THE BRITISH BULLDOG’S MUSIC! The crowd is going insane! Emerging from behind the curtain come The British Bulldog, draped in the UK flag, walking his bulldog, Matilda, alongside his tag team partner, Owen Hart! The British Bulldog receives a hero’s welcome from the crowd! The duo slaps the fans hands as they make their way down to the ring. They enter the ring as Beau and Blake scatter to the outside. Bulldog poses on the top turnbuckle as the fans give him a standing ovation.

    The referee settles the two tag teams down and inspects for foreign objects before calling for the official bell. Beau and British Bulldog start things off. The two lock up, with Bulldog getting the upper hand. He places Beau in a headlock. Beau reverses the headlock and puts Bulldog in a hammerlock. Bulldog spins out of that and puts Beau back in a headlock. Beau pushes Bulldog off of him and goes for a shoulder block, but Bulldog doesn’t budge. Beau flies off the ropes and goes for another but once again, Bulldog doesn’t budge. Beau flies off a third time and goes for a flying cross body but Bulldog catches him in midair! Bulldog parades around the ring holding Beau as he tosses him high over his head before sending Beau crashing to the mat for a shoulder press slam! Bulldog waits for Beau to get to his feet before charging at him, connecting with a huge clothesline! Blake and The Genius slide Beau underneath the ropes as they attempt to re-group on the outside. Inside the ring, Bulldog plays into the crowd, before tagging in Owen Hart. The referee calls for Beau to come back into the ring and begins his ten count.

    Beau quickly rolls into the ring and tags in Blake. Blake runs at Owen Hart, but Owen ducks and hits Blake with a spinning heel kick! Owen waits for Blake to get to his feet as he runs off the ropes. Blake leapfrogs Owen. Owen flies off the ropes as Blake hits the deck, waiting for Owen to hop over him. Instead Owen stops in his tracks, laughs at Blake who is lying face down on the mat, and then stomps his head right into the mat! Owen lifts Blake to his feet and attempts to lift him up for a suplex but Blake blocks it. Blake then lifts Owen up for his own and hits it! Owen holds his back in pain as Blake taunts the crowd and The British Bulldog. Blake then tags in Beau, and the duo begin to cut the ring in half, leaving Bulldog cold on the outside.

    Beau and Blake begin hitting a succession of double team maneuvers on Owen, to the point where Bulldog is starting to get very impatient on the outside, pacing back and forth as he gets the raucous crowd behind Owen. Beau sends Owen off the ropes. Owen ducks a clothesline from Beau and then ducks a big boot from Blake by sliding underneath. Beau turns around and Blake ends up hitting him square in the face with the big boot intended for Owen! Owen slowly crawls over to his corner where HE FINALLY MAKES THE HOT TAG TO BULLDOG! Bulldog begins cleaning house. Clothesline on Beau. Dropkick on Blake! Beau eats another clothesline that sends him over the top rope and to the floor! Blake runs at Bulldog who sends him flying over the top rope and to the floor! BULLDOG IS ON FIRE! The crowd eats up Bulldog as he waits in the center of the ring. Beau slides in and is immediately met by Bulldog, who begins to stomp on him. Bulldog lifts Beau high over his head and drops him face first on the turnbuckle! Beau falls backwards as Bulldog attempts to cover him. 1…2…NO! Beau kicks out! Bulldog lifts Beau in the bodyslam position as he tags in Owen with his free hand.

    Bulldog then lifts Beau and slams him down on his knee for a hard back breaker. Owen then hops to the top turnbuckle, where he sizes up Beau. The Genius hops up on the apron, distracting the referee and Owen. Owen disregards The Genius and leaps off for a top rope dropkick when suddenly Blake grabs Beau and tackles him out of the way! Owen comes crashing down hard to the mat, missing his mark! Blake drags Beau over to his corner and awaits the referee to turn back around to make the tag. The referee turns back around to see Owen down on the mat. Beau tags in Blake who stomps on Owen. Blake taunts Bulldog as he puts Owen in an abdominal stretch. Blake eventually lifts Owen up over his head from the abdominal stretch position and hits a pump-handle slam for a near fall. Blake shouts to Beau as the duo call for the end. Blake tags in Beau as the two signal for the Shaker Heights Spike! Blake sends Owen off the ropes and lifts him up….BUT BULLDOG RUSHES IN AND GERMAN SUPLEXES THE AWATING BEAU OUT OF THE WAY!...Blake continues to hold Owen up in the air for what feels like an eternity, but Beau isn’t anywhere to be found to finish the Shaker Heights Spike! Instead...

    OWEN IS ABLE TO REVERSE INTO A TORNADO DDT!

    Owen with the tag to Bulldog, and THIS PLACE IS SHAKING! Bulldog lifts Blake over his shoulder and walks him over to the corner before getting a running start…

    RUNNING POWERSLAM! BULLDOG HOOKS THE LEG! 1…2….3!

    Winners at 8:28- The British Bulldog & Owen Hart

    The referee raises Bulldog and Owen’s hands as the crowd is on their feet, giving both men a standing ovation. Bulldog grabs the UK flag and swings it around high in the air, as McMahon and Monsoon say the hometown hero proved why he, along with Owen Hart are a force to be reckoned with in the WWF moving forward. Bulldog slaps the fans hands as he takes his time walking up the long entrance way, soaking in the experience of a lifetime.


    We cut to the back where Sean Mooney is standing by with a duo that has been quite the talk of the WWF over the past few months- Perfectly Ravishing! Both men haven’t been seen in the WWF since both lost their respective title matches at Wrestlemania 8. The two polarizing figures have pieces of paper in their hands, most likely their contracts. Mooney tells the duo that everyone wants to know- have they signed new contracts with the WWF? Mr. Perfect responds first.

    “Mooney, wouldn’t you and the entire world like to know? What better time to make our official announcement than here at Summerslam? See, Summerslam will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where just one short year ago I became the greatest World Heavyweight Champion in the history of the WWF! Everyone should just call me- Mr. Summerslam!”

    Mooney says all of that is great, but they still haven’t given us a response on the contract situation. Rude pops in to answer.

    “You see these pieces of paper right here? These papers are our golden ticket! Let’s just get it out right now- YES, we have signed NEW contracts with the WWF. But these contracts are on our terms, they meet our demands, and are for only 1 full year. So next year, when Summerslam rolls around, we will both be free agents once again. I guess you could say we are pretty confident in ourselves for the next year!”

    Mooney is shocked at the news. He changes focus and asks just what the duo’s plans are moving forward, and how they plan to rebound following two heart-breaking losses at Wrestlemania 8. Mr. Perfect’s expression of joy quickly turns into anger at the mention of Wrestlemania 8.

    “You will NEVER bring up Wrestlemania 8 again Mooney, you got it? And that goes for everyone else out there. We’ve toured the world, dined with kings, had the finest women on the planet, and we came to the same conclusion. Rick Rude and I are just too damn good together! So Wrestlemania 8 is ancient history. It’s time to look into the future, and we’re gonna start by winning Tag Team gold. Legion of Doom, Steiners, Bulldog and Owen, and every other tag team out there- you’ve officially been put on notice! Perfectly Ravishing is throwing our names into the hat, and the tag team landscape just suffered a seismic shift in the form of Perfectly Ravishing!”

    Perfect throws his towel behind his back and it lands perfectly on Sean Mooney’s shoulder. The duo gives each other a high five before walking off the set. Mooney looks into the camera and shrugs before sending it back down to ringside.

    McMahon and Monsoon react to the monumental news of Perfectly Ravishing re-signing a 1 year contract with the WWF. They ask Bobby Heenan how he feels about this, and Heenan responds by saying he doesn’t have a comment. Heenan is visibly irked at this news, and decides he has had enough as he gets up and leaves the announcer’s table. Monsoon leaves Heenan with a “good riddance” as Heenan storms to the back. They then shift focus and talk about the events that led up to our next matchup- “The Model” Rick Martel up against The Repo Man.


    Grudge Match- For Rick Martel’s Bottle of Arrogance
    “The Model” Rick Martel vs. The Repo Man


    Rick Martel’s music hits as the crowd begins to boo. Martel pops out from behind the curtain, looking like a broken man. He has on his black suit coat with his big green pin that reads “Yes, I am a Model,” but is noticeably missing his bottle of arrogance to spray into the crowd. Martel walks into the ring and jeers to the fans as he signals for his bottle of arrogance.

    The Repo Man is out next, to a surprising host of cheers from the hot crowd. Repo Man is in his full getup- with his long gray trench coat, and Martel’s bottle of arrogance chained up. He swings the chain high in the air as the bottle of arrogance swings with it. Martel holds his head in his hands, hoping that the bottle doesn’t break.

    Repo Man hops into the ring and is immediately jumped by Martel. Repo Man can’t even get his coat off yet, as Martel pummels away on him. Martel lifts him up and slams him to the mat. Martel runs off the ropes and goes for an elbow drop but Repo Man moves out of the way. Repo Man regroups on the outside, taking off his coat. He holds up the bottle of arrogance and teases Martel that he is going to throw it into the stands. Martel hops out of the ring and chases after Repo Man. Repo Man begins to run, and then ducks underneath the ring. Martel stops dead in his tracks, looking for the Repo Man. Repo Man then appears on the other side of the ring, runs at Martel and drills him in the back of the head! The crowd pops big for Repo Man as he rolls Martel back into the ring.

    Repo Man goes on the offensive, putting Martel in a headlock. Martel wiggles his way out of it and sends Repo Man off the ropes. Repo Man runs off and goes for a shoulder block but Martel cartwheels out of the way as Repo Man lands on the mat. Martel begins taunting Repo Man by doing his jumping jacks routine. Repo Man gets to his feet but Martel kicks him in the gut. Martel lifts Repo Man high in the air for a suplex. Martel with the quick cover only gets 2. Martel picks Repo Man up and sends him into the corner. Martel follows up behind but is met by a big elbow from Repo Man. Martel staggers back as Repo Man hops up to the second turnbuckle and leaps off with a double axe handle. Repo Man with the cover! 1..2…NO! Martel kicks out! Repo Man continues his offensive assault as he lifts Martel to his feet before striking him in the face with a hard right hand. Repo Man runs off the ropes and is met by a very impressive SPINEBUSTER from Martel! 1…2…NO! Repo Man kicks out at the last second!

    Martel can’t believe Repo Man kicked out. He begins to yell at the referee…when…REPO MAN ROLLS HIM UP! 1…2…..NO! Martel kicks out at the last second! Martel uses his momentum and springs forward. Repo Man charges at him but Martel lunges out of the way and Repo Man crashes into the corner! Martel with the quick rollup! 1..2….MARTEL PUTS HIS LEGS ON THE ROPES…AND THE REFEREE IS OUT OF POSITION TO SEE THIS…3! Rick Martel has stolen the match and his bottle of arrogance back!

    Winner at 6:42- “The Model” Rick Martel


    Martel quickly exits the ring and races to the bottle of arrogance, all chained up on the outside. Martel quickly rips the bottle of arrogance free from the chains, and rushes up the aisle way out of harm’s way. Martel begins to spray his bottle of arrogance into the crowd as they are less than thrilled that he has won it back!


    McMahon and Monsoon say Martel had to cheat his way to that victory, but nevertheless he leaves Wembly Stadium with his coveted bottle of arrogance. They say The Repo Man will never be short of work here in the WWF, and wonder what he will repossess next! They then segway into what’s next- a video introducing a new Tag Team to the WWF!

    The scene cuts to a shoreline. In the distance we see a small hut. Smoke is popping out from the inside of the hut. There are three men sitting down on the outside of the hut, devouring some type of meat they have just hunted and killed. The camera pans closer as we see a WWF legend- Afa of the Wild Samoans- sitting down on the sand. Next to him are two younger looking Samoan men, shoving massive amounts of food in their mouths. Both Samoan Wildmen stop what they are doing as they look up at the camera. They both simultaneously shout “SAMOA!” before the camera fades to black. A graphic pops up with the words- “THE HEADSHRINKERS- COMING SOON!”

    McMahon and Monsoon say The Headshrinkers, managed by the legendary Afa will be making the presence felt in the WWF very shortly. They say this team is not to be messed with, and wonder what type of impact they will make in the ever-growing and highly competitive Tag Team Division! They then switch focus and begin to talk about our next match of the evening- a No Disqualifications Match between two former best friends-turned bitter enemies- Marty Jannetty and “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels.

    They send it over to Gene Okerlund, who is standing by with Marty Jannetty. Jannetty seems as focused as ever, just moments away from the biggest fight of his life. Okerlund asks him how he is feeling heading into this match.

    “Michaels, this thing has gone on for too long now. You’ve gotten the best of me once, and then I’ve gotten the best of you once. Tonight is the rubber match. Tonight we finally find out just who is the better man. Shawn, you really don’t know how bad I’ve waited for tonight. The sneak attacks, the assaults, every single thing that has happened since you betrayed me, it all ends tonight.”

    The camera pans in closer to Marty Jannetty’s face. He points into the camera.

    “I’m willing to put it all on the line tonight. I am willing to sacrifice my body, because that’s how much ending you means to me. Shawn, I hope you brought your fighting boots tonight, because there isn’t gonna be a whole hell of a lot of wrestling going on once that bell rings!”

    Jannetty exits the interview set as McMahon and Monsoon hype our next match- the No Disqualifications Match between Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty- “Best Friends Turned Bitter Enemies!” McMahon says it all ends here tonight, one year after the beginning of the end for The Rockers. Tonight, both men will lay it all on the line, and a win will boost the victor straight into the Intercontinental title picture when the WWF returns back home.


    No Disqualifications Match
    “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels w/Sensational Sherri vs. Marty Jannetty


    Shawn Michaels is out first as his new, catchy theme song sung by his manager Sensational Sherri hits. Michaels emerges through the neon lighted entrance with his hands high in the air. Sherri walks in front of him, holding up a big heart shaped mirror. Michaels struts his way down the long aisle way as he hops into the ring, before getting a kiss on the cheek from Sherri.

    Marty Jannetty’s music hits as the crowd gets to their feet. Jannetty pops through the curtain and races to the ring, on a mission here tonight. Michaels clears the ring as Jannetty points to him before raising his arms high in the air, soaking in the cheers from the fans.

    Michaels climbs back into the ring, and begins to take his jacket off…WHEN MARTY CHARGES HIM...AND WE’RE ON! Jannetty pounces on Michaels, knocking him back into the corner. Jannetty kicks and punches Michaels, who crumbles to a heap in the corner. Sherri tries her best to help Michaels escape the ring, but Jannetty is a mad man and continues laying it in on Michaels. Jannetty finally lets up and drags Michaels by the hair across the ring, before kicking him right in the side of the head, to the delight of the fans. Jannetty lifts Michaels to his feet and delivers a hard knife edge chop across the chest of Michaels that echoes throughout Wembly Stadium! Jannetty sends Michaels off the ropes and connects with a dropkick! Michaels falls to the mat. Jannetty attempts to keep up the intensity but Sherri smartly drags Michaels out of the ring.

    On the outside, Sherri consoles a beaten down Michaels. The two stand at ringside…WHEN JANNETTY FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE ONTO BOTH MICHAELS AND SHERRI! Jannetty is on fire here in the early going, showing that he meant what he said by pulling out all stops here tonight! Jannetty lifts Michaels to his feet and goes to whip Michaels into the guard rail but at the last second Michaels reverses it and sends Jannetty hard into the steel guard rail! A desperation move by Michaels, but it pays off as he is able to buy some time and gain his bearings. Michaels goes over to the timekeeper’s table, shoves the timekeeper out of the way and grabs his chair. He is met with a hard right hand from Jannetty. The two wrestle over the chair until Michaels takes the low route and kicks Jannetty right in between the legs! Jannetty doubles over in pain as Michaels SMASHES the chair over his back! Jannetty falls hard to the floor as Michaels holds the chair high in the air, taunting both Jannetty and the crowd.

    Michaels waits for Jannetty to get to his feet and whacks him across the back with the chair once more. Michaels tosses the chair into the ring before going over to Jannetty where he stomps on his head for good measure. Michaels brings Jannetty to his feet and hammers away on his head. Michaels then rips up the blue padding on the floor to expose the hard, concrete floor. He goes back over to the beaten Jannetty and lifts him up before slamming him HARD ON THE EXPOSED CONCRETE! Jannetty screams in pain as he holds his back. Michaels grabs a hold of Jannetty’s legs and slingshots him forward, and JANNETTY GOES HEAD FIRST RIGHT INTO THE RING POST! Michaels gets up to his feet and screams at Jannetty, saying “I WAS ALWAYS BETTER THAN YOU MARTY!” before he slaps him across the face. The camera pans in to Jannetty’s face to show a big gash on his forehead, gushing blood.

    Michaels sends Jannetty back into the ring and slides in himself. Michaels pounds away with some more hard right hands. Michaels lifts Jannetty to his feet and blasts him with an uppercut that sends him flying into the corner. Michaels then taunts Jannetty as he lands a bulldog- one of Jannetty’s patented moves. Michaels then sets up the chair in the center of the ring. He shouts “C’MON MARTY! THIS IS WHAT YOU WANTED RIGHT?” as he slaps him across the face. Michaels then hits a big backbreaker on Marty, continuing the assault on Jannetty’s hurt back. Michaels then sits down in the chair with his back to Jannetty, and crosses his leg, signaling he is bored of beating down on Marty. His cockiness is his ultimate downfall, as Jannetty is able to spring to his feet, bounces off the ropes and catches Michaels with a hard dropkick! Michaels falls back in the chair as it goes crashing over!

    Jannetty takes advantage, as he has dug deep and found new life! Jannetty fires away on Michaels, still lying down with his feet up in the chair! Jannetty jumps off the second rope and hits an elbow drop! Michaels holds his back in pain as he attempts to get the chair out from underneath him. Marty helps him get the chair, and then smashes him in the shoulder with it! Jannetty’s eyes light up with rage as he continues to kick and punch the fallen Michaels. Jannetty places the chair across Michaels’ chest, before climbing to the top turnbuckle. McMahon and Monsoon speculate just what Jannetty is about to do. Jannetty turns around, back facing the ring….he leaps off…AND HITS A MOONSAULT ON MICHAELS AND THE CHAIR! Jannetty writhes around the mat in pain, as he may have broken a rib in executing the move! Michaels, on the other hand, is motionless on the mat. Jannetty gathers himself and drapes an arm over Michaels…

    1…2….NO!

    Michaels somehow finds a way to kick out! On the outside, Sherri finally comes to after being taken out earlier in the match, and grabs a bottle of water. She drags Shawn over to the ropes and douses him in it, attempting to revive him. Jannetty continues to hold his ribs from the wicked Moonsault as he staggers to his feet. While Sherri is attending to Shawn, she slips him a pair of brass knuckles. Jannetty lunges over to lift Michaels to his feet WHEN MICHAELS TURNS AROUND AND DRILLS JANNETTY WITH THE BRASS KNUCKLES! Jannetty falls flat on his back. Michaels tucks the brass knuckles inside his tights, but it really doesn’t matter since it is a No Disqualifications Match! Michaels goes to cover Jannetty but has second thoughts. Instead, he stomps on Jannetty, wanting to inflict more pain on his former best friend! Michaels grabs the bent steel chair and places it on the mat. He lifts Jannetty to his feet before lifting him high in the air…WITH A SUPLEX ONTO THE STEEL CHAIR! Jannetty’s back and ribs have been pushed to the limit in this match! An exhausted Michaels drapes an arm over Jannetty…

    1…2…NO!

    Jannetty finds it in him to kick out at the last second! Michaels sits on the mat in disbelief, not knowing what else to do to win the match. Jannetty crawls to his feet, using the ropes as assistance, face covered in blood. Michaels measures Jannetty up, signaling for the end, looking for Sweet Chin Music. Michaels times it up perfectly as he steps towards Jannetty…AND AT THE SAME TIME, BOTH MICHAELS AND JANNETTY DRILL EACH OTHER WITH A SUPERKICK! Both men are knocked out cold on the mat. Michaels shakes on the mat as he holds his jaw, as Jannetty got all of it. Jannetty holds his jaw as well, as Michaels laid the superkick in good on him too! The crowd gets behind Jannetty as he begins to roll over, looking to get to his feet. In the other corner, Michaels is up on his feet, and shakes the cobwebs. Jannetty digs deep and charges at Michaels, who is waiting. Michaels hops up onto the turnbuckles and grabs a hold of Jannetty’s head. Michaels leaps off WITH A TORNADO DDT ONTO THE CHAIR! Michaels with the cover!

    1…2….2…5…..NO!

    JANNETTY KICKS OUT! HOW DID HE JUST KICK OUT?!? Michaels can’t believe it! The announcing team can’t believe it! Sherri is beside herself at ringside. The fans are on their feet, firmly behind Jannetty. Michaels holds his head in his hands, not knowing what else to do! He screams at Jannetty- “JUST STAY DOWN! I’M THE BETTER MAN AND YOU KNOW IT!” Jannetty is on auto-pilot right now, and he refuses to give up! Jannetty gets to his knees, punching at the air, showing he won’t quit! Michaels is also slow to get to his feet, with the effects of the match starting to wear on him. Michaels crawls over to the corner, using the ropes as leverage to get to his feet. Jannetty staggers to his feet, with the steel chair in hand! Jannetty holds the chair up and just as he does…MICHAELS SUPERKICKS THE CHAIR RIGHT INTO JANNETTY’S FACE! The chair goes flying as Jannetty hits the mat like a ton of bricks. Michaels musters just enough energy to fall on top of Marty...

    1…2….3! SHAWN MICHAELS WINS!

    Winner at 16:40- “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels


    The bell rings as Shawn Michaels’ music begins to play. The referee raises his hand as he can barely stand. Sherri rushes into the ring and holds Michaels up as he continues to keep his hand raised as Sherri assists him out of the ring. Jannetty continues to lay motionless on the mat. The fans begin to give Marty a standing ovation as he finally comes to. He wipes his long hair away from his face and then wipes the blood away from his eyes as he gets to his feet. He holds his hand up in the air to the delight of the fans as a host of medics come down to check on him.

    We cut to McMahon and Monsoon who say we may have just witnessed one of the most brutal matches in WWF history! They say Jannetty left everything inside the ring, and just came up short. Nevertheless, Shawn Michaels put in a historic performance in his own right, and is now firmly in the middle of the Intercontinental title picture!


    We cut to the back where Lord Alfred Hayes makes his first appearance of the night to a big pop from the crowd watching on the big television screen inside Wembly Stadium. Hayes tells us he is attempting to catch up with The Million Dollar Empire, just moments before Money Inc. set to take on the Tag team Champions The Legion of Doom. Hayes knocks on The Empire’s locker room door, where Virgil answers. We can hear Dibiase in the background, asking Virgil who’s at the door. Virgil turns to the side as Hayes greets Dibiase. Dibiase throws his arms up in the air and shakes his head…

    “For God sakes Hayes, didn’t we have a deal?”

    Hayes goes on to say it is his job to interview certain talent before their matches and he just so happened to draw The Empire tonight. Dibiase changes his tone and drapes his arm around his buddy Hayes.

    “Hayes, I KNOW you had a great time in Baltimore, Jessica told me all about it! You are quite the stud, aren’t you? She even dropped off your bowtie the next morning!”

    Hayes turns white as a ghost at the mention of Saturday Night’s Main Event last month. Hayes says he really wishes Dibiase wouldn’t bring up last month because he brought his girlfriend to the show tonight, and changes the subject to Money Inc.’s match tonight.

    “Ahh, come on Hayes. It’s confidential…it’s between you and me…no one will ever hear about that night in Baltimore…EXCEPT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD! AHAHAHAHA!”

    Dibiase shuts the door on Lord Alfred Hayes as he humbly signs off from The Million Dollar Empire’s locker room.

    We send it across the stadium where Gene Okerlund is standing by with the reigning Tag Team Champions, The Legion of Doom. Both Hawk and Animal pace back and forth as they gear up for their big title match. Okerlund asks the dynamic duo about tonight’s big match with Money Inc. and just what they will do to combat Money Inc.’s cheating ways. Animal answers first.

    “MONEY INC! Tonight it all ends for you two! For the past few months you have tried your hardest to get your greasy little hands on these titles, but it just isn’t gonna happen for you! We’re angrier and nastier than ever here tonight. Total destruction is the only means of wrestling for us tonight! TELL EM HAWK…”

    The camera cuts over to Hawk, who has had his back turned while Animal was speaking. Hawk turns around on cue…

    “WELLLL….DIBIASE! IRS! You may have all the money in the world, but the minute you step into that ring with us two caged animals, all hell will break loose! Bring your briefcases, bring your brass knuckles! We’re ready for war, and you’re both gonna be ready to leave Wembly Stadium in an ambulance! OHHHH WHAT A RUSHHHH!”

    Hawk belts out his famous line as he and Animal walk off the set. Okerlund sends it back down to McMahon and Monsoon, who hype up the big Tag Team title match!


    Tag Team Championship
    ©The Legion of Doom vs. Money Inc.


    Ted Dibiase’s music hits as the crowd immediately begins to boo. Virgil and Brother Love escort the duo of Ted Dibiase and IRS, known as Money Inc. down the long entrance way. Dibiase has introduced us all to his new white tuxedo, laced with dollar signs all over it. The duo jeers to the crowd as they strut into the ring and pose for the camera. McMahon and Monsoon say that Money Inc. will look to start off the night with a win for The Empire.

    “OHHH…WHAT A RUSHHH!” blasts throughout Wembly Stadium as the 80,000 plus fans are on their feet, screaming for the reigning Tag Team Champions. The tag champs emerge from behind the curtain on motorcycles! Hawk and Animal rev up their engines as they scream down the entrance way as the crowd pops big for them. They park their motorcycles at ringside as they head into the ring while Money Inc. quickly exits. Hawk and Animal pose on the turnbuckles with the tag team titles around their waists. They take their shoulder pads off and point down at ringside where Money Inc. talks trash. We are ready for some tag team carnage!

    Eventually, Dibiase and IRS climb back up as the referee calls for the match to begin. Hawk and Dibiase start things off. Hawk goes to lock up but Dibiase slides underneath out of harm’s way. Hawk chases after Dibiase who attempts to run to the other side of the ring. Hawk is able to catch Dibiase by the hair and chops him hard across the chest as Dibiase hits the mat. Hawk rushes off the ropes and hits a diving shoulder block on Dibiase! Dibiase quickly slides out of the ring and out of harm’s way as IRS, Brother Love and Virgil regroup on the outside.

    Animal doesn’t let the huddle last for long as he hops off the apron and runs full speed at the Million Dollar Empire huddle, knocking ALL members to the ground on the outside! Animal then grabs Dibiase and slides him back inside the ring to an awaiting Hawk. Hawk hammers away on Dibiase with hard stomps to the back. Hawk lifts Dibiase to his feet and whips him hard into the opposite turnbuckle. IRS, who has recovered from Animal’s smash earlier on, is waiting in the corner and smartly makes the blind tag as Hawk plays into the crowd. Hawk turns around and runs into a clothesline from IRS, but Hawk doesn’t budge. IRS off the ropes again goes for another clothesline but this time Hawk ducks. IRS keeps his momentum rolling as he bounces off the ropes and both men wind up and hit a DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! Both men hit the mat. Hawk is up first to his feet and makes the hot tag to a hungry Animal.

    Animal rushes into the ring as IRS waits with a punch to the gut. Animal eats the punch and drills IRS over the back with a double axe handle. IRS holds his back in pain as Animal zones in on IRS. Animal picks IRS up and lifts him high over his head as he begins shoulder pressing him. Animal gets a bit overzealous with the shoulder press and the witty IRS begins to grab a hold of Animal’s Mohawk. Animal is forced to put IRS down who slaps Animal in the sleeper hold! The submission doesn’t last long as Animal powers out of it easily, and drills IRS with a clothesline. IRS attempts to crawl over to make the tag to Dibiase, but Animal smartly steps on IRS’ tie, and IRS isn’t going anywhere! The crowd is hot for Animal as he once again lifts IRS up high in the air and this time connects with a power press slam! Animal hooks the leg!

    1…2…NO!


    IRS barely kicks out at the last second. Animal tags in Hawk who quickly goes right back on the offensive, stomping away at IRS. Hawk picks IRS up to his feet and drills him with a hard right hand, which knocks IRS back into the corner. Hawk lunges at Dibiase who hops off the apron and to the floor, wanting no part of Hawk. Hawk then turns back around and ducks a punch from IRS. Hawk then kicks IRS in the gut and lifts him up high in the air for a suplex! IRS comes crashing down hard on the mat. The fans are on their feet as they know what’s coming as Hawk points to Animal, signaling for the Doomsday Device! Animal enters the ring as Hawk begins his ascent to the top turnbuckle…

    When all of a sudden Brother Love and Virgil hop up on the ring apron, distracting the referee! Hawk lunges at Virgil as he and Brother Love cause commotion on the apron. IRS does his best to wrestle with Animal while Dibiase is able to hold onto Hawk’s leg from underneath the ropes…

    WHEN SUDDENLY…

    MR. PERFECT AND RICK RUDE ARE SEEN WALKING DOWN THE ENTRANCE AISLE!


    “What are they doing here?” shouts McMahon as Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude strut out to ringside. They decide to have a seat on The Legion of Doom’s parked motorcycles at ringside. They are a MASSIVE distraction for Animal, who lets IRS go as he shouts down to Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude…

    IRS then attempts to grab Animal, who is on the ropes, still distracted. Hawk finally kicks Dibiase off of him and comes rushing at IRS…who moves out of the way! Hawk clotheslines Animal instead over the top rope and to the floor! Hawk turns around…AND RUNS INTO THE WRITE OFF FROM IRS!

    After all the commotion, the referee turns around to see IRS pinning Hawk…

    1…2….3!

    Winners at 10:23 and NEW WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS- Money Inc.

    “No! Not like this!” shouts McMahon as the 80,000 plus in attendance are STUNNED! Dibiase enters the ring as he demands the tag team titles! Dibiase and IRS hold their newly won Tag Team titles high in the air as Virgil and Brother Love enter the ring and begin to celebrate! Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude smile and begin to walk back up the aisle way as Dibiase doesn’t know what to think of their distraction which ultimately led to Money Inc. leaving Summerslam as Tag Team Champions. Hawk and Animal finally come to as they can’t believe what just transpired. The duo look at each other, stunned that they’ve just lost the Tag Team titles.

    The Million Dollar Empire hop out of the ring as they celebrate up the aisle way. The crowd boos as Dibiase taunts the crowd, shoving his Tag Team title belt in the fans faces. McMahon and Monsoon can’t believe what we just witnessed. Technically speaking, Money Inc. didn’t cheat to win the titles since it was a clean pin, but there sure was a lot of raucous and distractions to get them the titles. Nevertheless, we have NEW tag team champions here at Summerslam! McMahon then shifts focus as he talks about another new superstar set to debut sometime in the near future, and says this man has a video for us all to see…

    The camera pans into a brightly lit room. There are five long mirrors set up next to each other. We see a massive figure appear before the mirror, flexing his arms and legs as he narrates…

    “Some people are born rich….some people are born pretty…and some people are born with a body of perfection!”

    The man continues to flex his muscles, as we begin to make out his blonde hair in the mirror as he flexes his back.

    “There is a reason they call me The Narcissist. Michaelangelo couldn’t have carved this body out of stone…”

    The camera then shifts up to reveal the man flexing in the mirror is none other than LEX LUGER! Luger strikes a pose for the camera as it then fades to black. A graphic pops up on the screen- “The Narcissist Lex Luger-Coming Soon!”



    We head back down to ringside, where McMahon and Monsoon hype up the upcoming debut of Lex Luger. They say the man may be as cocky as they come, but there is no denying that he has the muscle to back up his talk. They then shift focus as they begin to hype up our next match- THE FIRST EVER CASKET MATCH! The Undertaker will look to settle his feud with the crazed Berzerker once and for all here at Summerslam.

    A video package begins to play as Gorilla Monsoon narrates in the background. This all started during the King of the Ring Qualifying matches back in early May. The Undertaker wasn’t even able to make it down to the ring before he was attacked by The Berzerker.

    From there, an angry Undertaker lured The Berzerker onto a Special Edition of The Funeral Parlor in July at Saturday Night’s Main Event. The Berzerker is seen choking Paul Bearer when The Undertaker appeared from one of the caskets on the set, attacking The Berzerker.

    Next, we see The Berzerker finding his way back to the Funeral Parlor segment on Superstars. The Berzerker stabs his sword through all of the caskets, looking for The Undertaker. Suddenly, the lights go out and when they turn back on The Undertaker is standing behind The Berzerker. The two trade blows before Berzerker flees the scene.

    Monsoon tells us that all roads end here tonight, as the only way to win this first ever Casket Match is when one man gets stuffed in the casket and the lid is closed shut!

    Casket Match
    The Undertaker vs. The Berzerker


    The Berzerker is out first through the neon entrance way, wielding his sword and shield around like a lunatic. Berzerker holds his hand out while he shouts “HUSS! HUSS! HUSS!” as he enters the ring. McMahon and Monsoon take note that The Undertaker hasn’t had an opponent quite like The Berzerker yet in the WWF, as he clearly doesn’t fear The Undertaker.

    Pandemonium fills the air as the crowd awaits the entrance of The Undertaker. Out first are six men dressed in all black from head to toe, pushing out the casket. Three men are on each side of the casket as they wheel it down the entrance way. The camera gets a close up of the casket, which has The Berzerker’s sword and shield embedded directly on top of the casket lid.

    The lights begin to dim and the gong sounds as they cheer. The “Graveyard Symphony” begins to play as Paul Bearer emerges first holding the urn high in the air. Behind him in the distance is the Phenom, The Undertaker! The Undertaker slowly walks down the aisle way as the crowd is on their feet, in awe of his presence. The camera cuts to The Berzerker inside the ring, pacing back and forth like a mad man, anxiously awaiting The Undertaker. The Undertaker finally makes his way up the ringside steps and enters the ring. Paul Bearer holds his urn high in the air when a crack of thunder and lightning is heard in the background as the lights turn back on. The Undertaker takes off his long trench coat and hat as he rolls his eyes back inside his head.

    The bell rings as the two massive individuals stand face to face. Berzerker is showing no fear as he pushes The Undertaker right out of the gate, but Undertaker doesn’t budge. Berzerker shoves him once more, and once again Undertaker doesn’t move an inch. Berzerker then tries a different approach as slaps Undertaker across the face. The Undertaker turns his face back towards Berzerker and drills him with a right hand! Undertaker follows it up with another one, but Berzerker comes back with some wild fists of his own.

    Berzerker goes to lift Undertaker off his feet for a body slam, but Undertaker smashes Berzerker across the back. Undertaker then wraps his massive hand around Berzerker’s throat as he chokes him in the corner. Berzerker lets out a yell as he tries his hardest to muscle Undertaker’s hand off of his throat. Berzerker thinks quickly and steps on Undertaker’s foot before pushing him off of him to the ground. Berzerker catches his breath as he kicks Undertaker in the head. Berzerker flies off the ropes but Undertaker is waiting and drills him with a hard right hand that knocks Berzerker back against the ropes. Undertaker runs at him and clotheslines him over the ropes and to the floor!

    The Undertaker climbs out of the ring and grabs a hold of Berzerker as he slams his head off of the ringside steps! Berzerker shows is toughness as he shakes off the pain, and throws a couple of elbows into Undertaker’s mid-section. Berzerker then attempts to lift The Undertaker up and into the casket, but Undertaker grabs a hold of the ropes and lands on the apron. Berzerker then sweeps the legs out from underneath Undertaker as he falls hard on the ring apron and right into the casket!!! The Berzerker goes to close the casket shut but Undertaker won’t let him. Undertaker punches away at Berzerker from inside the casket as he fights his way out of it.

    Berzerker with another hard right hand that dazes The Undertaker for a few seconds. Berzerker closes the casket shut. He then grabs Undertaker by the hair and slams his head on the lid of the casket! Undertaker pops right up and throws a heavy forearm at the surprised Berzerker. Berzerker rolls back into the ring to regroup as Undertaker climbs back into the ring.

    Berzerker charges at Undertaker and hits him with a hard kick to the gut. Undertaker doubles over in pain as Berzerker races off the ropes and knees Undertaker right in the face. The Undertaker falls to the mat as McMahon and Monsoon applaud Berzerker’s toughness and resilience here tonight. They say The Undertaker may have never met a match like The Berzerker! The Berzerker waits for Undertaker to get to his feet as he spins around and drills Undertaker with a discuss forearm that sends The Undertaker into the corner.

    Berzerker then shows off his impressive strength as he lifts The Undertaker up on top of the top turnbuckle. Berzerker climbs up with The Undertaker, hooking him in the suplex position. The Undertaker begins punching Berzerker in the side, and eventually Berzerker hops back down. Undertaker attempts to kick Berzerker but Berzerker catches Undertaker’s foot and jumps up, punching Undertaker in the head. Berzerker then climbs back up and locks Undertaker in the Superplex position. Berzerker hold Undertaker high in the air- a place the Phenom has never been before…

    AND CONNECTS WITH THE SUPERPLEX ON THE UNDERTAKER!!!

    Both men crash with such a thud that the ring moves over a couple of inches! Berzerker recoups and gets to his feet, while to looks down at his palm, shouting “HUSS! HUSS!” He stands over The Undertaker, taunting him…

    WHEN THE UNDERTAKER SITS RIGHT UP AND STARES A HOLE THROUGH THE BERZERKER!!!

    The stunned Berzerker doesn’t know what to do, so he attempts to kick Undertaker, but Undertaker makes it to his feet and catches the kick. Berzerker balances on one foot as Undertaker lifts him high in the air for a big body slam! Undertaker then races off the ropes and connects with a highly athletic flying clothesline! The Undertaker rolls Berzerker underneath the ropes and puts him in the casket, but Berzerker gets his hand up as The Undertaker attempts to close the lid.

    Berzerker with a quick poke to the eyes is enough for him to climb out of the casket. The two men are standing on the ring apron as Undertaker begins hammering away with rights and lefts. He walks with Berzerker over to the ring post and smashes Berzerker’s head right into it! Berzerker is dazed, hanging onto the ropes so he doesn’t fall into the casket. The Undertaker shows his superior strength as he lifts Berzerker up INTO THE TOMBSTONE POSITION!

    BUT BERZERKER USES THE LEVERAGE OF THE ROPES AND FLIPS OVER…PUTTING THE UNDERTAKER IN THE TOMBSTONE POSITION!!!

    Berzerker goes for a Tombstone on The Undertaker…

    BUT THE UNDERTAKER USES HIS WEIGHT AND SHIFTS BACK OVER….AND HITS THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ON BERZERKER RIGHT ON THE RING APRON!!!

    The crowd is on their feet as The Undertaker rolls the motionless Berzerker into the casket before CLOSING THE LID SHUT! The crowd pops big for The Undertaker, as he has just won the first ever Casket Match!

    Winner at 11:48- The Undertaker

    The bell rings as the referee awards the match to The Undertaker. Undertaker rolls back into the ring as Paul Bearer enters the ring, holding the urn high in the air. McMahon and Monsoon say The Undertaker just got put to the test, as he was truly pushed to the limit here at Summerslam by The Berzerker, but ultimately just set down another monster challenger.

    The Undertaker rolls his eyes in the back of his head as he bends down on one knee, raising his arm up high to the urn held by Paul Bearer. The lights dim inside Wembly Stadium as the same six men draped in black from head to toe make their way down the aisle, and begin to push the casket stuffed with The Berzerker inside up the entrance way. The crowd is still on their feet as The Undertaker has certainly become quite the fan favorite here in the WWF!


    We cut to the back where Gene Okerlund is standing by with one of the hottest-if not the hottest-superstar in WWF at the moment- 1992 King of the Ring Winner Sid Justice. Sid appears on the screen wearing his powder blue t-shirt. Sid looks as focused as ever as Okerlund asks him for his thoughts about tonight’s huge Triple Threat Match for the WWF Championship.

    “Ric Flair, your days are numbered! For far too long I have played second fiddle to you, and tonight I right all of the wrongs from this past year. Randy Savage, I have nothing against you, but tonight the minute we step foot in that ring, you also become an enemy.”

    The camera pans up close to reveal Sid Justice’s massive frame as he continues.

    “There is a reason why everyone is calling this “The Summer of Sid” and tonight I prove to the world that I am the top man in the WWF after I walk out of Summerslam as the NEW world champion!”

    Sid Justice exits the interview set as we head back down to ringside, where McMahon and Monsoon hype up tonight’s main event. They then shift focus as they begin talking about how The Million Dollar Empire has a chance to go 3-0 tonight. Money Inc. already took care of business earlier on in the show, and now it will be time for Big Bossman to state his claim as the number one bodyguard of The Empire.

    A commercial for ICO-PRO is shown, this time highlighting Tatanka. We see Tatanka in the gym, pumping iron, as an all new ICO-PRO protein shake bottle sits next to him. Tatanka is seen bicep curling massive amounts of weight. He then begins to bench press over 400 pounds. After his last rep he pops up from the bench and points into the camera- “ICO-PRO- YOU’VE GOTTA WANT IT!”

    Back down at ringside, we are ready for our next matchup! This one started back at the King of the Ring in June, where following a loss to Tatanka in the Quarterfinals, Big Bossman took out his frustrations and damaged the back of Tatanka, softening him up for the Semi-Finals which he would eventually lose. Since then, Tatanka has looked for revenge and finds himself on the verge of it here at Summerslam!


    Grudge Match
    Tatanka vs. Big Bossman

    Big Bossman’s music begins to play as the fans begin to boo. Bossman pops through the neon entrance way twirling his nightstick in the air. Following Bossman is Virgil and Brother Love, who are seemingly pulling triple duty tonight at Summerslam. Bossman jeers at the fans as he hops into the ring. McMahon and Monsoon say Bossman is in a big spot here tonight, looking to keep the modest winning streak going for The Million Dollar Empire tonight. They also say the winner of this match will be placed firmly into the Intercontinental title picture, much like Shawn Michaels earlier on in the show. Virgil rubs Bossman’s shoulders as Brother Love gives him a pep talk while they await Tatanka.

    Tatanka’s music hits as the crowd gets to their feet for the budding superstar. Tatanka, decked out with a head dress and tomahawk in hand sprints down the aisle way and into the ring. Tatanka circles the ring with his Native American dance before he salutes to the heavens. Tatanka hops up on the top turnbuckle and waves his tomahawk in the air as the fans gesture along with him.

    The referee pats down both men, and finds something suspicious in Bossman’s shirt pocket. Bossman shoes the referee away but the referee gets right into his face as he reaches down and pulls out a pair of brass knuckles! The crowd cheers the referee as he takes the brass knuckles from Bossman and puts them away. McMahon and Monsoon talk about how Bossman is clearly looking to win by any means necessary tonight, and the brass knuckles show just that!

    With the brass knuckles out of the way, the referee signals for the bell and we are under way here at Summerslam! The two lock up as both jockey for positioning. Bossman is able to body Tatanka into the corner. The referee calls for Bossman to break the hold. Bossman breaks the hold for a split second before connecting with a back elbow to Tatanka’s head! Bossman takes control and drills Tatanka with an uppercut, followed by a hard knife edge chop. Bossman then connects with a hip toss on Tatanka. Bossman continues the assault as he grabs a hold of Tatanka’s head, cranking down on his neck. Tatanka reverses out of it by sweeping the legs of Bossman.

    Tatanka looks to get in control of the match as he flies off the ropes and connects with a clothesline as he begins to turn the tides. Tatanka flies off the ropes again and this time hits Bossman with a shoulder block. The crowd is firmly behind Tatanka as he sizes up Bossman. Tatanka races off the ropes but Bossman catches him and hits a very impressive overhead belly to belly suplex! Bossman hops to his feet as Tatanka holds his back in pain. Bossman with a big boot followed by a suplex, as he is in complete control right now!

    Bossman, looking to make it 2 for 2 for The Million Dollar Empire tonight zones in on finishing off Tatanka. Bossman waits for Tatanka to get to his feet before slapping on a bear hug! Tatanka attempts to fight out of it, but the massive Bossman is just too much for The Native American to overcome as he tires down to one knee. The crowd pulls Tatanka back to both feet, and he begins to muscle his way out of the bear hug. Bossman hammers down with rights and lefts, but Tatanka starts to eat them as he prances around the ring!

    Brother Love has seen enough and hops up on the apron, much to the crowd’s dismay. Virgil uses the distraction to slide Bossman his nightstick. Tatanka, distracted by Brother Love, moves the referee out of the way as he drills Brother Love with a right hand and he goes flying off the apron into the awaiting arms of Virgil! The referee, looking down at Brother Love, doesn’t see Big Bossman charging at Tatanka with the nightstick…

    BUT TATANKA IS WAITING FOR IT AND DUCKS…

    Bossman hits the corner as Tatanka uses his momentum to scoop the heavy Bossman over his shoulders…

    END OF THE TRAIL SAMOAN DROP!!

    Tatanka hooks the leg!

    1…2…3!

    Winner at 5:11- Tatanka


    The referee raises Tatanka’s hand as Big Bossman, Virgil and Brother Love retreat up the entrance way. Tatanka celebrates on the top turnbuckle as McMahon and Monsoon say Tatanka exacted his revenge at Summerslam, and will now look to shift his focus into the very crowded Intercontinental title picture.


    We cut to the back where we are greeted by Sean Mooney outside The Million Dollar Empire’s locker room.
    He knocks on the door and a very aggravated Ted Dibiase answers. Mooney says The Empire is now 1 for 2 tonight, with the biggest matchup pitting “The Prized Possession” of the Empire-Bam Bam Bigelow against the reigning Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart up next.

    “That was a travesty! Tatanka put his hands on a member of the non-active roster! He should be suspended immediately! Bossman had that match won, the referee lost that match! I am gonna’ have some choice words for our President Piper in the very near future!”

    Mooney says Dibiase may feel that way, but in the end it was Tatanka that ended up overcoming the odds of Virgil and Brother Love on the outside to pick up the victory. He then asks Dibiase about how he feels about Bigelow’s chances in the Intercontinental Championship.

    “Mooney, I don’t need this right now. Everything was going according to plan until that! I will tell you one thing, my man Bam Bam Bigelow will make sure that he leaves tonight as the new Intercontinental Champion! There will be NOTHING to stop him from beating Bret Hart, and we will make sure he wins, you can take that to the bank!”

    Dibiase slams the locker room door shut as Mooney sends it over to Gene Okerlund.

    Gene Okerlund is standing by with the reigning Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart. Just moments away from his title defense, Okerlund asks Bret Hart how he feels about tonight’s match.

    “Ya know it’s quite simple Gene. I know Dibiase and his goons are gonna’ be draped at ringside, looking to get their hands on me every single time the referee’s back is turned. I’ve gotta stay focused on the task at hand, which is Bam Bam Bigelow. Bigelow is a tough nose guy, but I just want him to know that this title isn’t going anywhere tonight!”

    Okerlund asks Bret Hart what tonight means to him, fighting in front of a crowd of over 80,000.

    “Tonight is a big night for me, as my family has deep ties to the UK wrestling scene dating back a number of years. Davey and Owen did their part earlier on tonight, so it’s only fair that I hold up my end. The Empire may have screwed me over in getting a match with me here at Summerslam, but I’ve never been more focused than I am tonight! Oh, and Dibiase, I’ll be bringing some friends of my own down to the ring tonight to make sure you don’t try and pull something during my match!”

    A very focused, confident Bret Hart walks off the set as Okerlund sends it back down to ringside.

    McMahon and Monsoon hype up our next title match of the night, Intercontinental Champion Bret Hart up against a very worthy challenger in Bam Bam Bigelow. We cut down to ringside where WWF President Roddy Piper is sitting at the timekeeper’s desk, looking to make sure The Million Dollar Empire doesn’t attempt to pull any shenanigans during the match.

    Intercontinental Championship

    Ted Dibiase’s music hits as the crowd immediately begins to boo.
    The Million Dollar Empire all file out of the entrance way, with Bam Bam Bigelow bringing up the rear. The polarizing club jeers at the fans as they walk down the aisle way. Brother Love is holding an ice pack up to his face from the punch by Tatanka earlier on in the evening. Bigelow enters the ring as he climbs to the top turnbuckle, where he raises his arms high in the air. On the outside, Dibiase and Piper share some words as the camera picks up Piper telling Dibiase “You’re on thin ice buddy, I’ll be watching you!”

    Bret Hart’s music hits as the crowd gets to their feet, giving Hart a HUGE ovation…and he is not alone! Out alongside Bret Hart is his family members Owen Hart, British Bulldog and the returning Jim Neidhart! The crowd is hot for another sight of The British Bulldog! The Hart family walks down the aisle with Bret, making sure that there is strength in numbers for this huge title match here at Summerslam. Hart enters the ring and poses for the fans as Bigelow watches from the corner, pacing back and forth. Owen, Bulldog and Neidhart share some words with The Empire members at ringside, who are not happy with their arrival.

    Bret Hart gives the Intercontinental title belt a big kiss before handing it to the referee, who holds it up in the air. The referee calls for the bell, and we are under way!

    Hart and Bigelow lock up, before Hart quickly swings around and grabs a hold of the massive Bigelow. Bigelow reverses it and puts Hart in a hammerlock. Hart reverses it for a hammerlock of his own. Bigelow slides out of it and lifts Hart up for a huge back body drop! Bigelow quickly grabs a hold of Bret and puts him in a headlock. Hart tries wrestling out of it but Bigelow is able to snap Hart around onto the ground, keeping the headlock on, applying pressure to Hart’s head and neck.

    Hart is able to get to one knee and elbows Bigelow two times before Bigelow lets go. Hart climbs on Bigelow’s back and tries putting him in a sleeper hold. Bigelow uses his power and backs Hart up hard into the corner. Bigelow quickly turns around and drills Bret Hart with a right hand. Bigelow then lifts Hart and tosses him high in the air, and Hart comes crashing down to the mat with a loud thud. Hart holds his back in pain as Bigelow taunts the crowd.

    Bigelow lifts Hart to his feet and whips him off the ropes. Hart bounces off and runs right into a shoulder block by Bigelow. Bigelow runs off the ropes, and in a super show of agility cartwheels over Bret Hart. Hart kicks up to his feet and runs right into a dropkick by Bigelow! Bigelow lifts Hart up and places him in the corner where he hammers away on Hart’s head. Bigelow goes to throw Hart into the opposite corner but Hart reverses it and Bigelow goes into the corner hard. Hart rushes towards Bigelow and goes for a back elbow but Bigelow catches Hart in midair, turns him around and delivers a nasty German Suplex on Bret!

    “Bigelow came here to win gold tonight, and is pulling out all stops here in the early going!” shouts McMahon from commentary. Bigelow lifts Hart up in a suplex position, and begins to hold him there. Bigelow holds Bret Hart in the Suplex position for nearly ten seconds before dropping him to the mat! Bigelow is toying with Bret Hart early on, and looks super impressive! Bigelow with the first pinfall of the match but Hart kicks out at 2! Bigelow gets to his feet and sizes up Hart. Bigelow lifts Hart once more and this time hits a huge sidewalk slam! Bigelow with another cover…

    1…2…NO!

    Bret Hart kicks out. Bigelow punches Hart in the head before he ascends to the top turnbuckle. Bigelow flies off, going for his patented Diving Headbutt BUT BRET MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Bigelow smashes his head into the mat as Bret looks to gain his strength back, using the ropes as leverage to get to his feet. Hart waits for Bigelow to get to his feet and runs at Bigelow, before hitting a dropkick right to the knees. Bigelow falls to the mat as Hart rushes off the ropes and hits a flying bulldog! Hart is gaining momentum and knows if there is any time to capitalize and turn this match around, it is right now! Hart races off the ropes once more but this time Dibiase grabs a hold of his legs and Hart trips, hitting the mat face first. The Hart Family quickly rushes over to the other side of the ring, waiting to strike on The Empire, before Roddy Piper intervenes. Piper gets right in Dibiase’s face and KICKS HIM AND THE REST OF THE EMPIRE OUT OF THE MATCH! Dibiase can’t believe it. Piper yells at The Empire to hit the bricks as Dibiase points to him, saying he will pay for this!

    The crowd is hot for Piper’s decision as The Empire are forced to head back to the dressing room for the duration of the match! Back inside the ring, Bigelow has Hart in a sleeper hold, and Hart is fading fast! The referee raises his arm once…twice…NO! Hart won’t let his arm fall for the third and final time! The crowd is firmly behind Hart, who begins to elbow his way out of the sleeper hold. The Hart Family cheers Bret on from ringside, as Hart needs all the cheering he can get right now. Hart is back on his feet as he attempts to pry Bigelow’s massive arms from around his neck. Hart is able to get out of the sleeper hold, and quickly hits a Russian Leg Sweep on Bigelow. Hart gets to his feet and begins to work over Bigelow’s left leg, softening it up for the Sharpshooter.

    Bret then climbs to the top turnbuckle, but Bigelow is able to get to his feet and knocks him down into a sitting position. Hart kicks at Bigelow’s head to give himself some room. Hart turns Bigelow around and is now on Bigelow’s shoulders! Bigelow attempts to go for an electric chair, but Hart holds onto the ropes and refuses to let go. Bigelow tries to pry Hart’s hands off the ropes, all while Hart is still on Bigelow’s shoulders. Hart uses the ropes as leverage and is able to lean back…

    AND BIGELOW GOES FLYING OVER THE ROPES BACK FIRST AND HIS BACK LANDS SQUARE ON THE HARD RING APRON!


    Hart is now standing on the ring apron and leaps off, connecting with a double axe handle! Hart slides Bigelow back into the ring to break up the ten count and begins working over Bigelow’s legs. Bret jams on Bigelow’s leg, kicking it repeatedly before slamming it on the mat. Bret goes for the Sharpshooter but can’t get his legs around Bigelow’s massive legs, and Bigelow ends up kicking Bret Hart across the ring into the corner! Bigelow gets to his feet and charges at Hart in the corner, but Hart jumps up to the second turnbuckle and HITS A SUNSET FLIP!!!

    1….2….NO!

    Bigelow kicks out at the last second!

    Hart goes right back on the offensive, and hits another dropkick to Bigelow’s legs, chopping the big man down to the mat. Hart flies off the ropes once more and goes for a bulldog but Bigelow catches Hart in midair again and tosses him crotch first onto the top turnbuckle! Bigelow then pushes Hart down in the tree of woe position. Bigelow knees Hart in the mid-section and then presses his size 17 foot right into the throat of Hart.

    Bigelow then lets go of Hart, and takes a few steps back. Bigelow runs full speed ahead at the vulnerable Hart, but Hart sits up at the last second and Bigelow crashes into the turnbuckles. Hart is able to flip himself around and waits for Bigelow to stand before he hops off the turnbuckles and grabs a hold of Bigelow’s head, putting him in a sleeper hold! Bigelow flails his arms in the air as he attempts to get Hart off of him. Bigelow then uses his strength to lift Hart back up over his head in the electric chair position. Bigelow goes for the electric chair but before he can…

    BRET HART WITH A VICTORY ROLL!!!!

    1…2….3!

    Winner at 13:56 and STILL Intercontinental Champion- Bret Hart


    Bigelow is stunned at what just happened, as the crowd is on their feet, giving Hart a massive ovation! Owen, Bulldog and Neidhart rush the ring as they celebrate with Bret Hart inside the ring. McMahon and Monsoon say Bigelow looked for the electric chair two times during the match, and both times was unsuccessful. They say that Hart has watched countless hours of film on Bigelow and knew what was coming, which ultimately gave him the victory!

    Bigelow is irate at ringside, as he focuses his frustration towards Roddy Piper. Piper doesn’t back down from Bigelow as the two jaw off to each other. Bigelow holds his hands up, seemingly to walk away, before he turns back around…

    AND DRILLS WWF PRESIDENT RODDY PIPER WITH A RIGHT HAND!

    Piper falls back into the timekeeper’s table as Bigelow begins to walk away up the aisle. Piper gets back to his feet, visibly angry at Bigelow. The Hart Family come over to check on Piper who reassures them he is fine.

    BAM BAM BIGELOW WILL SURELY BE PAYING A FINE, AND POSSIBLY EVEN SERVE A SUSPENSION FOR THAT PUNCH!


    Piper raises Bret Hart’s hand as the crowd cheers once more. McMahon and Monsoon can’t believe that Bigelow put his hands on a WWF official, the actual president of the WWF for that matter! Nevertheless, Bret Hart backed up his talk by slaying the much bigger and stronger Bam Bam Bigelow here at Summerslam, as he adds another notch in his belt of successful title defenses. The Hart Family take their time as they shake the fans hands while walking back up the entrance way, while a host of WWF medics come out and check on Roddy Piper.

    We head back to the interview set where Sean Mooney is standing by with a victorious Shawn Michaels. Michaels is still in his ring gear as he wears a white towel around his neck, stained with blood from his war earlier on tonight with Marty Jannetty. Mooney says Michaels requested this time to make a statement he wanted everyone to hear.

    “So now that I took care of that worthless piece of trash Jannetty, it’s time for the ‘Heartbreak Kid’ to set his sights to something bigger, something brighter. Yeah, I’m looking at YOU Bret Hart! You may have just won a war against one of the scariest guys in the WWF, but you’ve never stepped foot in the ring with someone like me!”

    Mooney asks Michaels if he is laying down an official challenge to the reigning Intercontinental champion, who is well known for never backing down from a challenge.

    “You call it what you want, I call it my destiny! I’ve been reading the tabloids, all the magazines, the insider pundits. Everyone knows that I am the next man ready to step up and challenge Bret Hart for that title. And now that we’ve both settled our differences with our rivals at Summerslam, the minute we step foot back in the good ol’ US of A, I am officially challenging you Bret Hart for his Intercontinental title. Bret, if you’re a man like you say you are, I’ll be seeing you very soon!”

    Michaels walks off the set, as he just dropped a bombshell challenge to Bret Hart. McMahon and Monsoon say Bret Hart has never backed down from a challenge, but wonder just what type of condition he will be in following his war with Bam Bam Bigelow just moments ago. They then shift focus and say that Gene Okerlund is standing by on the side stage with a very special guest…

    We cut to Gene Okerlund who tells us it has been quite a night thus far, and with a couple more blockbuster matches, this Summerslam may go down as the biggest event in the history of the WWF. Okerlund then says he is out here on the side stage to welcome his guest at this time- he is a newly debuted WWF superstar looking to make a name for himself- he calls himself “The Bad Guy.” Here is RAZOR RAMON!

    Razor Ramon, a man who is “oozing machismo” according to McMahon, appears on the stage. He is a giant of a man, close to 7 feet tall. He is decked out in a blue and pink Hawaiian shirt, with pink pants and all white gator skin shoes. He has on about four or five massive gold chains around his neck. His hair is slicked back to perfection. Razor has a toothpick in his mouth and one in his ear. Okerlund welcomes Ramon to Summerslam, and to the WWF.

    “Save it Geno, I don’t need no introduction. Everyone knows who I am, and if they don’t, they’re all about to find out real soon just who “The Bad Guy” is.”

    Okerlund is taken aback at the cockiness of Razor Ramon. The crowd also doesn’t like Ramon, as they begin to boo him. Ramon then takes the mic out of Okerlund’s hand and talks again.

    “I came to the WWF for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to get some gold around my waist to match the gold around my neck chico! I see you Sid Justice. I see you Macho mayne. I see you Bret Hart. But none of you have seen me yet. Soon, that’s all gonna’ change, when “The Bad Guy” begins taking down your favorite wrestlers one by one. You will all see me very soon. WWF, this is your warning. “The Bad Guy” is here to stay, whether you like it or not!”


    Razor Ramon then takes the toothpick out of his ear and flicks it at Gene Okerlund, before taunting the fans as he walks off the side stage. McMahon and Monsoon say Ramon sure does talk a big game, but we have yet to see him inside a WWF ring to see if he actually means business. They hype his in-ring debut in the very near future!

    We cut to a promo for our next event, Saturday Night’s Main Event! LIVE from the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington on Saturday Night, October 31! It’s a Halloween Spectacular! Get your tickets at the box office now, as they will be selling very fast! Don’t miss the action of the World Wrestling Federation!

    Back down at ringside we are ready for some Tag Team action! This will be The Steiner Brothers’ WWF Pay-Per-View debut, and they have a score to settle with Power & Glory!


    Tag Team Match
    The Steiner Brothers vs. Power & Glory (Hercules & Paul Roma)


    Already in the ring are Power and Glory, who jeer at the fans. Hercules swings his large steel chain around as he flexes, showing off his massive physique. Roma poses on the top turnbuckle as he taunts the fans.

    The Michigan Fight Song hits and the crowd are on their feet! Rick and Scott Steiner emerge from behind the neon entrance stage as they slap the fans hands. The dynamic brother duo is looking to impress here at Summerslam, their first televised appearance! There has been tons of fanfare and publicity over their debut in the WWF, and tonight they get to show the entire world just how great they really are.

    The bell rings and we are under way! Rick and Roma start things off. Roma goes to lock up but Rick immediately switches around him and takes his legs out from underneath him. Roma falls face first to the mat as Rick slides over the top of him, showing off his world-class amateur wrestling skills. Rick grabs a headlock as Roma attempts to get out of it. Roma tosses Rick off the ropes and Rick bounces back, drilling Roma with a shoulder block. Rick then picks Roma up from the ground and in one motion delivers a devastating German Suplex that sends Roma across the ring!

    Roma is able to get to his feet deep in the corner and tags in Hercules. Rick tags in his equally impressive brother Scott. Scott and Hercules have a stare down, as Hercules is showing Scott and the world that he won’t back down from a fight. Hercules bounces off the ropes and goes for a shoulder block but Scott doesn’t budge. Hercules bounces off the ropes once more and runs directly into a MISSILE DROPICK FROM SCOTT! The dropkick nearly took Hercules’ head off! Scott then lifts Hercules to his feet, before kneeing him hard in the mid-section. Scott then places Hercules’ head in between his legs, and hooks his arms, before delivering a highly impressive DOUBLE UNDERHOOK POWERBOMB! Scott with the cover!

    1…2…NO! Paul Roma enters the ring and breaks up the count. All the pinfall breakup did was aggravate Scott even more, and he charges at Roma and delivers a clothesline that upends Roma! Scott then tags in Rick who hammers away on Hercules. Roma rolls out of the ring, holding his head in pain. Rick begins to bark like a dog as he circles the fallen Hercules, waiting for the right moment to strike. Hercules gets to his feet and just as he does, Rick grabs a hold of him and delivers an OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!

    McMahon and Monsoon say that Hercules is no local talent, and is a man of extraordinary strength that Rick just tossed around like a rag doll. Hercules is able to stand in the corner, and tags in Roma, who wants no part of Rick. Hercules yells at Roma to enter the ring, and before Roma can make a decision on his own, Rick lifts him off the ground and tosses him into the ring! Rick tags in Scott and tells him to finish the match! Scott lifts Roma to his feet and chops him so hard across the chest that Roma falls back to the mat. Scott grabs him by his hair and bounces him off the ropes, and CONNECTS WITH A FRANKENSTEINER! Roma’s head is implanted in the mat. Scott tags in Rick, who hoists Roma on top of his shoulders as Scott ascends to the top turnbuckle. Scott grabs a hold of Roma’s head, and the duo performs one of their finishing maneuvers, THE STEINER DDT DROP! Roma is out cold on the mat as Rick covers him.

    1…2….3!

    Winners at 4:15- The Steiner Brothers


    The referee raises Rick and Scott’s hands as the crowd is on their feet! McMahon and Monsoon say they have never seen a debut quite like that before, and have to wonder how the new Tag Team Champions Money Inc. feels about The Steiner Brothers’ impressive performance. Rick and Scott share a hug as they raise their hands high in the air.

    McMahon and Monsoon then shift focus to begin talking about one half of our Double Main Event tonight- The Six Man War featuring The Freak Show up against The Ulti-Maniacs! They take us through this nearly year-long feud, which will all culminate here tonight:

    December 1991- Madison Square Garden House Show- Jake Roberts is the Special Guest Referee for the mega matchup between Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair at the yearly Madison Square Garden holiday show. Roberts, who was still serving his suspension, was looking to get back into the good graces of then-WWF President Jack Tunney. Roberts called the match right down the middle, awarding the victory to Hulk Hogan. Following the match Hulk Hogan gave Roberts a big boot and tossed him over the top turnbuckle.

    January 1992- Royal Rumble- Looking to win his third straight Royal Rumble, Hulk Hogan was looking to take out Ric Flair from the match when the lights went out. When they turned back on, Jake Roberts, along with his two new friends Doink the Clown and Cactus Jack stood there. Roberts shouted to Hogan “You should have seen this coming brother!” before hitting him with his devastating DDT.

    April 1992- Wrestlemania 8- In a blockbuster matchup, Jake Roberts takes on Hulk Hogan. After a distraction from Cactus Jack and Doink the Clown, Jake Roberts does the unthinkable and defeats Hulk Hogan in one of the biggest victories of his career. Following this defeat, many insiders and fans wonder if Hulk Hogan has wrestled his last match.

    June 1992- King of the Ring- Hulk Hogan brings along some backup in the form of the returning Brutus Beefcake to confront The Freak Show. They surprise The Freak Show and are able to get the upper hand, sending The Freak Show running for cover. During this segment, Hogan accepted the challenge from Jake Roberts to take all three members of the Freak Show in a Six-Man Tag Match at Summerslam. Talks about Hogan’s third man for the match is one of the biggest stories of the summer…

    July 1992- Saturday Night’s Main Event- Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake made short work of their opponents-The Nasty Boys in a Tag Team matchup. Following the match, The Freak Show flank the ring, looking to take out Hogan and Beefcake in a 3-on-2 assault, when Hulk Hogan’s third member- which is none other than The Ultimate Warrior- comes down to make the save. The stage is set for the Six Man War at Summerslam!


    After the announcers catch everyone up, they send it to Sean Mooney who is standing by with Jake Roberts and The Freak Show. All three men seem as calm as they can be. There is an eerie feeling on the interview set as Mooney does his best to ask Roberts his thoughts on tonight’s Six Man War.

    “Hulk Hogan, it all ends tonight. In another country, half way around the world from home. But that seems to be fitting for you. See, you haven’t been yourself since that night at the Royal Rumble when I made it clear that I wasn’t coming back to the WWF for any other reason than to end Hulkamania forever! No, you haven’t been yourself for quite some time now, and you know it. That’s why you brought along your two buddies for backup. But none of that matters tonight…”

    The camera zooms in to a close up of Jake Roberts’ face as he continues to speak.

    “Hulk Hogan- the man of the people! The true American hero! A REAL American!

    Well Hogan, what’s gonna happen tonight when it comes crashing down and it hurts inside?”

    *Roberts lets out a sadistic laugh*


    “Are you gonna’ take a stand or will you run and hide?”

    *Sadistic laugh*


    “Hogan, I am gonna’ hurt your friends, and I’m gonna take your pride.”

    *Another sadistic laugh, and this time Cactus Jack and Doink the Clown begin to laugh as well*

    “You WON’T be a man and you WILL let it slide because there is gonna’ be absolutely nothing you can do when I end you and your friends’ careers tonight!”

    The camera zooms out as Roberts continues.

    “I’ve said it time and time again, that it’s nothing personal for Beefcake and Warrior. They have nothing to do with this. But now since you’ve gone on and selfishly dragged them into this, they are right there in the danger zone with you. And once we get out there in front of all those people, there is absolutely nothing you can do to save your career!”

    Roberts, Cactus and Doink all let out another sadistic laugh.

    “If you continue to play with fire, eventually you get burnt! Remember that tonight Hogan!”

    The Freak Show slither off the interview set, as a psyched out Sean Mooney sends it over to Gene Okerlund.

    We cut to Gene Okerlund who is standing by with a jacked up crew, now known as the Ulti-Maniacs! Hogan, Warrior and Beefcake are all pumping each other up, slapping each other’s chests before Hulk Hogan begins to talk.

    “Well let me tell ya something Mean Gene! I’ve been hangin’ and bangin’…*points to Beefcake* He’s been cuttin’ and struttin’ *points to Warrior* And he’s been runnin’ and gunnin’ ALL around the UK brother! I gotta tell ya dude, I’ve never had two friends like these guys around me before to pump me up, and their attitude is just contagious! And tonight, Jake Roberts and The Geek Squad will be in for a treat when we take them down and throw them out like yesterday’s trash brother! This thing has been going on for way too long brother, and tonight it is finally time to expose you as the cowards that you are!"

    The Ultimate Warrior then begins to speak.

    “We’ve traveled a million miles and the spaceship is ready for takeoff! Jake Roberts, when you mess with Hulk Hogan, you mess with the souls of all the living and the dead! And I’m gonna call to the heavens to bring us all the power to smash you into a trillion pieces! And when it’s all said and done, the power will continue to lie right here! *points to the palm of his had* The power of a million little warriors and Ulti-Maniacs, all looking for justice. CAN YOU FEEL THE POWER….OF THE ULLLTIMATEEE WARRIORRR!”

    Beefcake begins to swing his scissors back and forth as Warrior and Hogan flex.

    “WHATCHYAAA GONNNA DOOO JAKE ROBERTS….WHEN THE ULTI-MANIACAS RUN WILD ON YOUUUUU?!?!?!”

    The amped up trio walk off the set as Okerlund sends it back down to ringside for this mega matchup!

    McMahon and Monsoon remind us that WWF President Roddy Piper has called for relaxed rules in this one, meaning the referee has one job only- to count the pinfall or submission. They speculate over if this relaxed rules stipulation will hurt or help The Ulti-Maniacs, because Jake Roberts always has a few dirty tricks up his sleeve!


    Six-Man War
    The Ulti-Maniacs (Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior & Brutus Beefcake)
    vs.
    The Freak Show (Jake Roberts, Cactus Jack & Doink the Clown)

    Jake Roberts and The Freak Show are out first, to a host of boos from the 80,000 plus raucous crowd. Roberts leads the way as Cactus and Doink walk behind him. All three men slide into the ring, as Roberts immediately sits down in the corner. Doink and Cactus stand guard in front of their leader as they await their opponents.

    “Real American” blasts through the PA system as the crowd is hot on their feet! Hogan, Warrior and Beefcake emerge from behind the neon entrance stage to a massive ovation. Hogan cups his hand over his ear as the fans shout loud for the mega star! The trio stops about half way down the entrance way when all three men begin to sprint towards the ring!

    Hogan and co. jump up onto the ring apron where The Freak Show is awaiting inside the ring. All six men begin trading blows as The Ulti-Maniacs enter the ring. Hogan and Roberts throw haymakers at each other! Doink and Beefcake are hammering away on each other! Warrior and Cactus Jack are trading lefts and rights!

    IT’S PURE PANDEMONIUM HERE AT WEMBLY STADIUM!

    Warrior takes Cactus by the hair and tosses him over the top rope and to the floor! Hogan clotheslines Roberts over the ropes and to the floor! Beefcake drills Doink with a right hand that launches him over the ropes and to the floor!

    The Ulti-Maniacs all stand tall inside the ring as the stadium shakes in excitement. On the outside, The Freak Show regroups as Roberts orders Doink and Cactus to grab steel chairs. Doink and Cactus oblige to their leader and toss the timekeeper and bell man out of the way as they pick up two steel blue chairs. They then circle the ring, with one member on each side, as they carefully climb back onto the apron. The Ulti-Maniacs charge them and knock them all back off the apron and to the floor! Hogan hangs onto Jake Roberts by the hair and tosses him into the ring. Warrior and Beefcake slide out and begin to hammer away on Doink and Cactus! Inside the ring Hogan takes control of Roberts, drilling him with a hard clothesline!

    On the outside Beefcake goes for a hard right hand but Cactus ducks AND DRILLS BEEFCAKE ACROSS THE FACE WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! Beefcake immediately holds his surgically repaired face as Cactus lets out a sadistic laugh.

    Warrior wrestles the chair away from Doink on the other side of the ring and SMASHES IT ACROSS HIS BACK! Warrior then lifts Doink high in the air and drops him throat first on the guard rail! Warrior pumps his hands in the air as he calls to the heavens to give him strength!

    Inside the ring Hogan picks Roberts up and goes for a bodyslam but Roberts is able to poke Hogan in the eyes, and Hogan drops Roberts. Roberts, down on one knee drills Hogan with a gut punch that sends him bending down. Roberts then hits Hogan in the face with a hard right hand as he gets to his feet. Roberts then sets Hogan up on the ropes and clotheslines him…AND BOTH MEN GO OVER THE ROPES AND TO THE FLOOR!

    The only man standing in the ring is the referee, as ALL HELL HAS BROKEN LOOSE!

    Cactus begins to do a little housekeeping as he rips the blue mat up from the floor, exposing the hard concrete. He then picks Beefcake up AND BODYSLAMS HIM HARD ON THE CONCRETE FLOOR! Cactus then climbs back onto the ring apron, where he leaps off and hits a FLYING ELBOW DROP ONTO BEEFCAKE! Cactus lets out a laugh as he rubs his hands over the badly hurt face of Beefcake!

    On the other side, Warrior has taken complete control of Doink as he continues smashing his head off of anything he can find, but the crazy clown won’t go down! Warrior then tosses the camera man out of the way and picks up his cable, and BEGINS CHOKING DOINK AROUND THE NECK! But the sick, sadistic clown begins to laugh as Warrior tightens the grip! HE LIKES IT!

    Roberts and Hogan exchange blows on the far corner, and Hogan is able to drill Roberts with a hard right that sends him over the guard rail and into the front row! One Hulkamaniac sitting at ringside stands up and gives Hogan his chair, shouting for him to use it! Hogan cocks the chair back and drills Roberts across the back! Hogan gives the fan a high five as he tosses the chair on top of the fallen Roberts.

    Cactus runs over towards Hogan and goes to punch him but Hogan is ready and clotheslines Cactus! Warrior and Hogan group up as they shift their focus towards Doink while Roberts lies on the floor with a chair atop of his back.

    Warrior and Hogan begin to beat down on Doink, who is still laughing from the punishment! Warrior sends Doink right into Hogan who DRILLS HIM WITH A BIG BOOT! Doink lies motionless on the floor as Hogan and Warrior share a high five. They begin to head towards Beefcake to check on him…

    WHEN CACTUS JACK FLIES THROUGH THE AIR OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A CANNONBALL FLIP ONTO BOTH MEN!

    Cactus lets out his trademark “Bang Bang!” as he rocks back and forth on the ground. Roberts finally shows signs of life as he climbs back over the guard rail and focuses his attention back on Hogan. Roberts drags Hogan back into the ring and slides his head underneath the ropes where he elbows Hogan directly in the throat!

    Beefcake gets to his feet and charges Doink, drilling him in the back of the head with a forearm. Warrior is waiting for Cactus as he hip tosses him RIGHT INTO THE STEEL RING STEPS! Cactus’s legs bouncing off the ring steps make a massive thud as he holds his legs in pain. Warrior then goes over to help Beefcake who is working on Doink.

    Inside the ring Roberts attempts to take control of Hogan with hard knife edge chops in the corner. Roberts then kicks Hogan in the gut and goes for the DDT but Hogan is able to sweep the legs of Roberts and Roberts hits the mat. Hogan lifts Roberts to his feet as he punches him in the head. Hogan rushes off the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Roberts was thinking the same thing and they hit each other WITH A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! Both men are down on the mat!

    While this is going on, Warrior takes control of Doink on the outside as Beefcake and Cactus trade blows. Warrior picks Doink up off his feet and tosses him at Cactus as if he were a lawn dart…BUT CACTUS CATCHES DOINK! Cactus then swings Doink around, who has his feet pointed out, and Doink mows down both Warrior and Beefcake! What a sight to see!

    Inside the ring, Roberts and Hogan are slow to get to their feet. Roberts kicks Hogan in the leg. Hogan drops to one knee but quickly bounces up. Hogan drills Roberts with a right hand and Roberts flies into the corner. Hogan then lifts Roberts up onto the top turnbuckle, and in something never before seen, Hogan begins to climb up to the top turnbuckle with him. Hogan lifts Roberts high in the air…

    HOGAN WITH A SUPERPLEX!


    The ring shakes as both men hit the mat with sensational force! Both men are once again down on the mat!

    Beefcake and Warrior are both down on the outside floor, as Cactus slaps Doink across the face. Cactus and Doink then begin to climb to the top turnbuckle. Both men stand tall on the top turnbuckle as they size up Beefcake and Warrior down below. The two sick individuals begin to headbutt each other!

    At the same time, Cactus and Doink leap off the top turnbuckle…

    AND LAND RIGHT ON TOP OF WARRIOR AND BEEFCAKE!

    All four men are down on the ground. Warrior took the brunt of the move, as only Doink’s shoulder grazed Beefcake, who quickly attempts to get to his feet.

    Inside the ring Hogan is up first to his feet. Roberts uses the ropes for leverage as he wobbles to his feet. Roberts lunges at Hogan and hits him with an uppercut, but Hogan shakes it off. HOGAN BEGINS TO HULK UP!!! Hogan hits Roberts with three hard punches in the corner, but Cactus and Doink rush the ring and attempt to beat down Hogan. Roberts falls into the corner. Hulk eats Doink and Cactus’ punches like they’re air! Hogan grabs both men by their heads and BASHES THEM TOGETHER! Doink and Cactus go flying in opposite directions…Hogan walks back over to Roberts in the corner…

    BUT JAKE ROBERTS IS WAITING WITH A FIREBALL TO THE FACE OF HULK HOGAN!

    “OH MY GOD! WHAT WAS THAT?!?”
    shouts McMahon as the 80,000 in attendance are silent and stunned. Hogan rolls around on the mat in a serious amount of pain as he holds his face. “AHH! I CAN’T SEE BROTHER!” Hogan shouts to the referee who he asks for assistance. Roberts sits in the corner, and lets out a sadistic laugh as Hogan rolls around in pain.

    Beefcake rushes into the ring to check on his best friend…

    Jake Roberts hops up from the corner and zones in on Beefcake. He kicks him in the gut…

    DDT TO BEEFCAKE!

    Roberts hooks his leg!

    1..2….3!

    Winners at 13:25- The Freak Show


    The Freak Show quickly side out of the ring, as Cactus and Doink jump up and down, holding onto Roberts in the aisle way. Roberts holds his arms out as he shouts back into the ring towards Hogan- “I TOLD YOU NOT TO PLAY WITH FIRE HOGAN!”

    The fans are so mad they begin to throw trash in The Freak Show’s direction, but they soak in all of the boos and trash thrown at them, as the ultimate anti-hero has just scored ANOTHER victory over Hulk Hogan!

    Inside the ring Warrior and Beefcake check on their best friend, who was just hit with a fireball to the face! They call for help as a team of medics rush into the ring to check on Hogan. The camera cuts to the crowd where we see some women and children crying, holding their heads in the hands at the sight of Hulk Hogan attempting to gain his vision back!

    We cut to McMahon and Monsoon, who are at a loss for words. They apologize for the actions of Jake Roberts, and say that they speculate no action will be taken against him since WWF President Roddy Piper called for relaxed rules during the match. Monsoon says Roberts should be arrested after what he just did, but nevertheless, The Freak Show and Jake Roberts in particular just scored one of the biggest victories of their careers!

    We cut to the back where Sean Mooney brings us into the 1-800 WWF Hotline room where for just 99 cents per minute you can call your favorite superstar that was victorious here tonight! Mooney walks down the long table where WWF superstars are seated, answering their telephones. First we see Tatanka, followed by The Steiner Brothers, Rick Martel, and lastly, the trio of Bret Hart, Owen Hart and British Bulldog. Seated by themselves on the opposite side of the room are the newly crowned tag team champions Ted Dibiase and IRS, who look less than thrilled to be there.

    Suddenly the door pops open and in comes The Repo Man. Although he lost earlier on in the night, he is here in the Hotline room! Repo Man is in his full getup- trench coat, mask and rope. Repo Man sprints over towards Dibiase and IRS and STEALS IRS’ BRIEFCASE! Repo Man quickly exits the room as IRS and Dibiase race after him!

    The camera pans to the opposite side of the room where we see Owen Hart with a smirk on his face. Owen is trying hard not to laugh, as he is seemingly the mastermind behind Repo Man stealing IRS’ briefcase. Mooney says that even in the Hotline Room, anything can happen in the WWF!

    Gene Okerlund is standing by with another challenger for tonight’s World Championship matchup- The Macho Man Randy Savage! Savage paces back and forth as Okerlund welcomes him to the interview set and asks him how he plans to take out not one, but two men here tonight.

    “I’ve been asking myself that question since we got on the airplane back in the statesss my friend. Triple Threat Match! Never-be-fore-seen in the WWF UHHH HUHHH! Well you know the Macho Man is always up for a fight, no matter what the cir-cum-stancess are! And adding that belt that Ric Flair stole from me just makes the stakes a lit-tle higher tonight! RIC FLAIR! SID JUSTICE! Soon it’s gonna be time to show you both why the Macho Man is still at the top of his game! DIG ITT!”

    Savage continues to pace back and forth as Okerlund sends it back down to ringside.

    McMahon and Monsoon are still in shock from what we just witnessed with Jake Roberts throwing a fireball into Hulk Hogan’s eyes. They then shift focus to talk about our next matchup, where the newly debuted Kona Crush takes on The Mountie!


    Singles Match
    Crush vs. The Mountie


    The Mountie is out first alongside his manager, Jimmy Hart. The crowd jeers at The Mountie as he struts down the long aisle way, threatening to shock the fans with his shock stick. The Mountie enters the ring and holds the shock stick high in the air as the fans boo.

    Crush’s music hits as the crowd begins to cheer. The monster from Kona, Hawaii emerges through the neon stage to a huge ovation. Crush makes his signature sign, crushing his hands together as we cut to the crowd, where children are doing the same motion. Crush hops into the ring as The Mountie and Jimmy Hart await the match.

    The bell rings and we are under way. Crush runs straight for The Mountie who hides in between the ropes. The referee tells Mountie to get out from the ropes, but Mountie is scared to death of Crush. Crush decides he has waited long enough and charges at The Mountie, knocking him off the apron and to the floor!

    Crush raises his hands as the crowd cheers along with him. The Mountie slides back into the ring and quickly attempts to grab Crush’s leg, but Crush doesn’t budge. Instead, he cocks back and drills Mountie across the back with a hammer fist. Crush then goes on the offensive as he lifts Mountie high in the air for a huge power press slam!

    Crush sizes up The Mountie as he struggles to his feet. Crush tosses Mountie off the ropes and connects with a Tour of the Islands Tilt-A-Whirl Backbreaker! The Mountie folds in half from the move. Crush goes for the cover but Jimmy Hart puts Mountie’s foot on the bottom rope!

    Crush then shifts his attention towards Jimmy Hart. He reaches down and grabs Hart by his tie, lifting him up in the air onto the apron. As this is going on, Hart is able to toss the shock stick to The Mountie. Mountie presses the shock stick on and goes to shock Crush with it but Crush ducks out of the way AND THE MOUNTIE ZAPS JIMMY HART! Mountie turns around and Crush clotheslines him out of his boots, and the shock stick goes flying through the air! Crush then signals for the end as he places both of his massive hands around Mountie’s head! CRANIUM CRUNCH!!!

    Crush throws Mountie around like a rag doll as Mountie yells that he quits and begs for mercy. Crush lets him go as the referee calls for the bell!

    Winner at 2:30- Crush

    The referee raises Crush’s hand in victory. Crush kicks The Mountie out of the ring and looks down at the shock stick. He picks the shock stick up and in one motion CRUSHES IT WITH HIS BARE HANDS! The crowd cheers in approval as Crush is the man that has finally put an end to The Mountie and his dreaded shock stick!

    We cut to the back where Gene Okerlund is ready to conduct his final interview of the night with the WWF Champion Ric Flair! Flair is decked out in a gold and white robe. Bobby Heenan stands behind Flair, rubbing his shoulders as Flair cradles the WWF Championship in his arms. Okerlund asks Flair how he feels about the odds stacked against him tonight.

    “The odds have been stacked against me since the minute I walked into the WWF! Tonight is no different daddy. The NATURE BOY is ALWAYS ready for a fight, and it doesn’t matter how many people I have to beat to keep this baby around my waist! I know how to deal with Savage, and I created the man known as Sid Justice! I GUARANTEE YOU that this belt is staying right where it belongs, right here around my waist. And after the match is over and the referee raises my hand in victory, it’s time to hit the streets of London as I find a new queen to take back home with me! WOOOOO!”


    A confident WWF Champion Ric Flair struts off the interview set as Okerlund wraps it up and sends it back down to ringside.

    McMahon and Monsoon reflect back on the night we’ve had thus far, and say they have received word that Hulk Hogan is being treated at the nearest medical facility and has gained 50 percent vision back in both eyes.

    It is now time for our main event! McMahon says that each man has a 33.3 percent chance of winning, which are very slim odds. He then runs down the rules of the match which are quite simple- all three men will be in the ring at the same time, and the first man to secure a pinfall will be the winner. This match will indeed be grueling and push all three men to their breaking point! However, one of these three men will be leaving Summerslam with the biggest prize in all of sports, the WWF Championship!


    WWF Championship- Triple Threat Match
    ©Ric Flair vs. “Macho Man” Randy Savage vs. Sid Justice


    Macho Man’s music hits as the fans get to their feet for the super fan favorite! Macho Man is decked out with all the flash, pomp and circumstance you would expect from him in a big match like the one he is about to compete in. Macho Man points to the crowd as he walks down the aisle way. He hops up to the top turnbuckle and poses as 80,000 camera flashes engulf the ring.

    Sid Justice is out next, and gets an ovation that could possibly be bigger than Macho Man’s. McMahon and Monsoon take note that Sid Justice is an emerging superstar and is starting to become the most popular man in the WWF. Sid walks with a purpose down the aisle way as he climbs into the ring, staying focused the entire time.

    Finally, the WWF Champion Ric Flair’s music hits and the crowd immediately begins to boo. Flair pops through the curtain alongside Bobby Heenan with his arms stretched out far as he soaks in the boos. Flair struts down the aisle as only he can. Flair seems to be as confident as ever as he climbs into the ring, and taunts both Justice and Savage as he shows them his WWF title. Flair then gives the belt to the referee as he holds it high in the air.

    All three men stand in the center of the ring as the fans are at a fever pitch for our main event. Savage points to both men and taunts them while Flair stands there laughing. Sid doesn’t focus much attention on Savage, instead he is staring a hole through Ric Flair!

    The bell rings and we are under way! THE MAIN EVENT OF SUMMERSLAM HAS BEGUN! Savage and Justice immediately target Flair as they get him into the corner, punching and kicking away. Sid then turns towards Savage and begins to hammer away on him! Sid lifts Savage high in the air and hits a bodyslam! Flair gets to his feet and charges Sid as he goes for a shoulder block but Sid doesn’t budge! Flair off the ropes again but Sid is waiting with a shoulder block of his own that sends Flair down to the mat!

    Sid turns around and runs into a dropkick from Savage that knocks him into the corner. Savage then charges towards Flair and tackles him to the mat. Savage pounces on Flair, drilling him with rights and lefts, letting out months of frustration! Sid then grabs Savage by the hair and punches him square in the back. Sid tosses Savage out of the way and mounts Flair, pounding away on the champ, letting out months of frustration of his own! Sid pops up to his feet as he stands over Flair, pointing at him to stay down…

    SAVAGE ROLLS UP SID JUSTICE!

    1…2….NO!

    Savage attempts to steal the victory early on but Sid doesn’t let him! Savage races off the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Sid ducks. Both men bounce off the ropes and Sid drills Savage with a clothesline that upends him! Sid turns back around…

    FLAIR ROLLS UP SID JUSTICE!

    1…2…NO!


    Ric Flair also attempts to steal a victory, but Sid kicks out! Sid then gets to his feet and runs into another dropkick by Flair that knocks Sid through the middle rope and to the floor! Savage turns around…

    FLAIR ROLLS UP SAVAGE!

    1…2…NO!


    It is now apparent that Flair is looking to leave Summerslam as champion very quickly into the match, but it just isn’t happening! Flair grabs Savage in a head lock. Savage tosses Flair off the ropes and leapfrogs over him. Savage jumps onto the second rope and spins around, hitting a flying cross body on Flair! Savage goes to hook Flair’s leg but Heenan drapes Flair’s foot on the bottom rope. Savage turns his attention towards Heenan and just as he does Flair grabs a hold of him and sends him over the top rope and to the floor!

    Savage crashes down on the outside floor in an awkward position, and immediately grabs his ankle. Sid attempts to climb back in the ring but Flair is waiting for him and jams his neck off the ropes. Sid now lies on the ropes as Flair attempts to lift him up in a suplex position. Flair grabs a hold of Sid’s tights and impressively suplexes Sid back into the ring! Flair lets out a “WOOO!” as he kicks Sid while he is down.

    Flair waits for Sid to get to his feet and dives at the back of Sid’s legs, chop blocking him. Flair then zones in on Sid’s leg as he stomps on it, softening it up. Flair grabs both of Sid’s massive legs and kicks him in the gut. Flair holds onto Sid’s leg as he goes for the Figure Four but as he turns around Sid kicks him in the back and Flair goes flying to the mat. Sid gets to his feet but once again Flair dives at his legs, knocking him to the mat. Flair then grabs a hold of his legs again…

    AND PUTS SID IN THE FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!!!


    Sid screams in pain as Flair yells at him to tap. Flair has it locked in good in the center of the ring…

    SAVAGE LEAPS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH A FLYING ELBOW OUT OF NOWHERE ONTO BOTH MEN!!

    Savage lands on both Sid and Flair, breaking the Figure Four hold. Savage quickly pins Sid but Sid kicks out! Savage grabs Flair by the hair and tosses him over the top rope and to the floor, looking to gain a 1 on 1 advantage on the downed Sid Justice. Savage lifts Sid to his feet but Sid counters with a huge blow to Savage’s head. Sid with a short arm clothesline. Sid picks Savage up and places him on the top turnbuckle. Flair grabs Sid’s feet from outside the ring as Sid attempts to beat down on Savage. Sid then turns towards Flair who is now standing on the ring apron and kicks him in the gut. Sid climbs over the ropes and punches Flair in the head. Both men are standing on the apron. Sid decks Flair with a right hand that knocks him off the apron and to the floor…

    SAVAGE HOPS OFF AND DIVES AT SID…WHO CATCHES SAVAGE!!

    Sid then throws Savage off of him onto Flair on the outside! Sid hops off the apron and grabs Flair before throwing him back first into the guard rail. Savage is back up on his feet and grabs Sid by the head. Savage bounces Sid’s face off the ring apron! Savage then whips Sid hard into the ring post where he hits face first! Savage then climbs back up to the top turnbuckle, where he’s felt at home throughout the match. Savage flies off, going for a double axe handle on Sid…

    WHEN FLAIR WHACKS HIS LEG WITH A CHAIR JUST BEFORE HE LANDS!!

    Savage holds his leg in pain as Flair drills him across the back and then leg with the steel chair! Flair then rolls back into the ring, all by himself. Flair struts and taunts everyone as he shouts “I’M THE GREATEST!” Flair turns around and Sid is standing right behind him! Flair gets on his hands and knees, begging Sid not to hurt him. Flair then attempts to go dirty with a low blow, but Sid is expecting it and closes his massive legs on Flair’s hand before he can do any damage! Sid then attempts to pick up Flair but Flair pokes him in the eye. Sid lets go and Flair drops to the mat where HE HITS SID WITH A LOW BLOW! Sid doubles over in pain as he kicks his feet on the mat! Flair buys himself a short breather, as Savage rolls back into the ring, still favoring his leg.

    Flair goes to chop block Savage but Savage moves out of the way and then stomps on Flair’s head! Savage shakes his leg to get the feeling back into it as he bounces off the ropes. He leapfrogs over Flair and runs off the ropes and connects with a flying forearm on Flair! Savage then lifts Flair to his feet and CONNECTS WITH A BRAIN BUSTER! Savage quickly climbs to the top turnbuckle…

    Savage holds his arms up high as he gets ready to jump off but just as he does, Sid slides underneath him and lifts him up…

    DEVASTATING POWERBOMB TO SAVAGE!!!

    Savage’s head bounces off the mat from the force of the Powerbomb. Sid hooks the leg!

    1…2…..NO!


    Bobby Heenan saves the match as he grabs Savage’s foot and puts it on the bottom rope! Sid is beyond mad as he seemingly had the match won! Sid slams the mat in frustration as he points out towards Bobby Heenan…

    FLAIR ROLLS UP SID JUSTICE!!!


    But Sid rolls through and lands back on his feet where he slaps his massive hand around Ric Flair’s throat!

    CHOKESLAM!!!

    Sid then lifts Flair’s lifeless body and shoves his head in between his legs. The crowd is on their feet as they know what’s next…

    DEVASTATING POWERBOMB TO RIC FLAIR!

    Sid drags Flair into the middle of the ring, far away from Bobby Heenan so he can’t help out his client!

    Sid hooks the leg! The crowd chants along!

    1…2….3!

    Winner at 14:21 and NEW WWF WORLD CHAMPION- Sid Justice


    Wembly Stadium comes unglued as Howard Finkel announces Sid Justice as THE NEW WWF CHAMPION! Sid is overcome with emotion as the referee hands him his newly won WWF title! Sid shouts out loud as he holds the title high in the air.

    Flair rolls out of the ring as Bobby Heenan tends to him. The two men begin to walk up the entrance way as the fans taunt Flair. The camera pans to Savage who is down on both knees on the ringside floor. Savage is beyond exhausted and came up just short!

    Inside the ring, the celebration is ongoing as Sid Justice climbs to the top turnbuckle holding the WWF title high above his head! McMahon and Monsoon say “The Summer of Sid” is now complete, and Sid Justice just cemented himself as possibly one of the most dominant WWF Champions we have ever seen!

    Fireworks blast throughout the stadium as Sid Justice continues to celebrate. McMahon and Monsoon begin to sign us off…

    WHEN SUDDENLY THERE IS COMMOTION IN THE CROWD!

    Sid Justice hops off the top turnbuckle, turns around…

    AND JAKE ROBERTS IS SITTING IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER OF THE RING!!!

    Jake Roberts sits in the corner of the ring while Cactus Jack and Doink the Clown stand in front of him. Sid Justice knows what’s about to happen and tells Roberts to fight him like a man! Roberts orders Doink and Cactus out of the ring as he slides underneath the bottom rope. Sid holds the WWF title up in the air as he shouts to Roberts- “I’M NOT AFRAID OF YOU!”

    Roberts looks back up into the ring as he laughs at Sid, telling him- “Not tonight. I’ll strike, but you won’t know when! I just want you to know what I have my sights set on next!”

    “What a night we’ve had here tonight! This Summerslam has certainly lived up to the hype, and we leave you here tonight with Sid Justice as the new WWF Champion! For Vince McMahon, I’m Gorilla Monsoon. God bless you, God bless the UK, and God bless America. Good night!”

    The last scene of this epic Summerslam sees Sid Justice standing tall holding the WWF title high in the air while Roberts stands in the middle of the aisle way. Summerslam is now complete, but what does the future hold for the WWF with Jake Roberts lurking around the WWF World title scene?

    Summerslam Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    - Sid Justice wins the WWF Championship in the Triple Threat Match beating both Ric Flair and Macho Man Randy Savage...I definitely did not expect Sid to walk out WWF Champion but Sid has been on a roll for a while now especially after winning the 1992 King of the Ring. However, Flair does have a rematch clause. He was the champion and last I checked...champions do get a rematch. Then you throw in Jake The Snake Roberts now who wants the WWF Championship that Sid just won...let's just say things have gotten even more complicated.

    - Owen and Bulldog beating the Beverly Brothers to open up SummerSlam makes sense. Why? Bulldog being in his home country in his hometown was not going to lose this match because had that happened the fans most likely would have rioted. However, with this win this no doubt has to put Owen and Bulldog in the conversation as far as the WWF Tag Team Championships are concerned.

    - Mr Perfect re signing with the WWF makes sense but why Rick Rude? I would have thought that Rude would have left WWF to go to WCW by now but with Perfect and Rude staying they are also throwing their names into the conversation as far as the WWF Tag Team Championships are concerned...let's just say the competition in the Tag Team division is only getting more steep

    - Rick the Model Martel beating Repo Man...I wonder where Martel goes from here?

    - Headshrinkers debut...I can only expect that Afa will be their manager and the tag team will consist of Samu and Fatu

    - Shawn Michaels beating Marty Jannetty yet again but this time in No DQ...this just puts Shawn even more over as far as being a future main event guy in the WWF. With Jannetty, I don't think we will see him until at least Survivor Series 1992 or at the latest Royal Rumble 1993. I wonder where Shawn goes from here next?

    - DiBiase and IRS become the new WWF Tag Team Champions beating Legion of Doom seemingly from an assist from Perfect and Rude...Why would Perfect and Rude interfere in this match costing LOD the titles? Who benefits from that? Perfect and Rude think they have a better chance at beating Money Inc...If that is the case then I guess that makes sense but unless you are building towards an LOD/Perfectly Ravishing feud then I don't see what the point of all of that was

    - Lex Luger debut...I have a feeling we get Luger either at Survivor Series 1992 or he debuts at Royal Rumble 1993

    - With Taker beating Berzerker in the Casket Match...it makes me wonder where Taker goes from here next? Who does he feud with? Berzerker losing the Casket Match at least takes him off of TV for a bit

    - Tatanka's undefeated streak is still in tact beating Big Boss Man...this only puts Tatanka even more over as a superstar in the WWF whereas Boss Man ever since joining the Empire he has more or less fallen off

    - Bret "The Hitman" Hart retains his WWF Intercontinental Championship by beating Bam Bam Bigelow...this more or less just legitimizes Bret not only as the champion but it legitimizes his push to the top by him putting on a 5 star match especially with a guy much larger than he is in the ring and carrying him to a good match. With Bam Bam putting his hands on a WWF official especially President Piper...Piper could suspend Bam Bam or even fire him for that like what was Bam Bam thinking? I think it leads to Bigelow/Piper anyway and this was just the seeds being planted.

    - Now you more or less plant the seeds for perhaps one of the greatest rivalries in WWF history...Shawn Michaels is gonna target the WWF Intercontinental Championship by going after Bret "The Hitman" Hart...I personally can't wait to see it

    - Razor Ramon debuting...now that he has, it makes me wonder who his 1st program will be with?

    - Steiner Brothers beating Power & Glory...this was a great debut for Scott and Rick but with them coming from NWA/WCW...I can only hope that they are a big deal in the WWF Tag Team division

    - It seems ever since Jake The Snake has aligned himself with Doink and Cactus Jack he more or less has been on a roll and he just keeps finding ways to win matches well he, Cactus and Doink do. It seems that they have formed quite the trio in the WWF and they beat Hogan, Beefcake and Warrior. This no doubt has to put all 3 of them huge but that Fireball spot with Hogan was sickening. However, it keeps Hogan off of TV and he can go off to Hollywood.

    - Crush with him beating The Mountie in pretty dominating fashion it makes me wonder if Crush may be in line for a monster push?

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Love the opening to the show. Very reminiscent of what would go on in this time frame. ICOPRO!!!

    There was no other way that this show should start off than with the Bulldogs. The Genius getting some Heat on the mic before got the crowd even more into the match and hyped up for Bulldog. There was no way that Bulldog was losing this match here, so good to not try to do a SWERVE BRO! I love that Bulldog got the Hot Tag, as the crowd would be dying for him to get into the match by the point. No other finish should be done than to have Bulldog hit the Powerslam for the win. Good Call here…

    Glad to see Perfect and Rude are coming back to the WWF and being a tag team. I think a Steiner bros vs. Perfectly Ravishing feud would be a perfect next step.

    The fact that this match is for the bottle of arrogance is so early 90s that it is amazing. Love the finish as it pushes Martel forward while still not destroying Repo Man. Both are gimmicks, but you can have fun with them on the undercard.

    HEADSHRINKERS… gotta have some Samoans or it wouldn’t be WWE…

    Nice little Babyface promo from Jannetty. I wish that we had heard from Shawn though as his character is just so good to not write for. Love some of the spots in this match. I know we were talking about some ideas and I wish we had got a ladder, but I liked that you didn’t bust it out. Honestly, I would have been fine with the Double Superkick leading to a count-out finish, but I am glad that we got a decisive winner. Shawn was going have to come out of this as the eventual winner of the feud. I was really looking forward to this match and it delivered. I do hope we get to hear from Shawn later on in the show.

    I am loving these little segments between Hayes and Dibiase… I don’t know if it is leading anywhere, but its fun seeing it playing out. The promo from LOD was everything that we needed it to be. Surprising to see Empire go over here, but you perfectly transitioned LOD from the tag champs to their next feud with Ravishing. I feel like we are going see the Steiner beat Empire for the belts and Perfectly Ravishing will win their feud with LOD and then we got them two teams for the Tag Belts.

    LUGGGGEEERRRRRR!!!!!!!

    Undertaker… Casket Match… I wonder who is winning this match… I mean, you somehow got almost 12 mins out of this, so good on you. Undertaker is getting the huge push destroying the monsters… I just wonder if there is a plan for him or if it will be Monster of the Month.

    Nice, simple match between Boss Man and Tatanka. I wonder if Dibiase will be ok with one of his men losing. Also, I don’t know how I feel about Brother Love and Virgil being managers for the Empire… just feel that you could use Brother Love somewhere else for a heel or group of heels that would need a mouthpiece.

    Hell of a match between Bam Bam and Bret. Loved the Hart Family coming out as back up. I really hope that we see the Hart Foundation come out of this. I loved that you put over that Bret was able to counter Bigelow’s big move and how he is a technician in the ring. Piper being involved in the match and then taking the punch at the end has to be leading to something.

    Finally, we get to hear from HBK and he is moving right on to the IC Title picture. I do enjoy that you had Razor do an interview rather than a hype video like we got with the Headshrinkers earlier. Good promo from Razor as well.

    STEINER SQUASH!!!!

    I know how much you love writing for Jake and it really shows with how much you put into his segments. The Hogan promo was pure Hulkamania at his best… Also, I didn’t understand a word that Warrior was saying, so that was PERFECT…

    One hell of a brawl… I loved the fireball finish and it went with the story you were telling perfectly… the match was pure chaos and the Freak Show really shined here. Good Booking overall.

    KONA CRUSH… RUSEV CRUSH… NO… KONA CRUSH… GOT IT!

    What a way to make the first triple threat match in WWF make a splash with Sid winning the World Title and capping off the Summer of Sid… Jake Roberts showing up after the match was a hell of an ending… you have an amazing way of moving on to the next thing… very ECW like…

    Overall, an amazing PPV and well worth the wait…

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Either way the next title defense for Sid would probably be at In Your House in September right? Then you just have house shows but then the next Big 4 PPV is Survivor Series 1992

    Either way I can't wait to see who ends up on teams but also the title matches we also get

    Survivor Series 1992...Debut of Yokozuna I'm calling it

    Lex Luger will also debut at Survivor Series 1992 but Luger I can see Heenan as his manager

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Fucking FINALLY!!! Been waiting too long for this ma man, lets get straight into it.

    First off, having watched some promos by The Genius, it felt a bit wooden to be honest. The Genius is someone who having watched some old stuff, would use a bigger vocabulary to get people to hate him. This one kind of just felt like "HA! This place is shit innit?" It's a nitpick, but I do think his promo could have been better. The match itself though was pretty good. Right result here, as Bulldog losing in England at this time would have maybe caused a riot, but I hope we see more of these two as a team.

    God the tag division is STACKED. Road Warriors, Money Inc, The Steiners, now Perfectly Ravishing? No joke, I can see the tag titles headlining a PPV in this.

    Rick Martel getting has arrogance in a fun feud is cool, but he's much better than this haha. His feud with Bret in this REALLY made me a fan, so I hope he has something to do soon.

    I'm not gonna go into a big rant here, but I do hope that these kind of do-nothing matches are fazed out. It might be just because I'm viewing it from a modern perspective, but 3/4 short matches are too much imo. one or two squashes or undercard bouts I get, but even though it is SummerSlam, 11 matches is pushing it, especially when there's Tatanka vs Bossman, Crush vs Mountie and Steiners vs Power & Glory down the card.

    Shawn vs Marty was incredible. I can just envision the Double Superkick & everyone going mental at Wembley. The ONLY real critique I have, is I wish Sherri got a liiiitle bit more involved, other than slipping him some brass knucks, or maybe have a little bit where Shawn tells Sherri this is his fight or something, Everything else though was great, there was no way Jannetty was winning this, as Shawn is the star, but I don't really see where Marty can go now, hopefully you prove me wrong.

    I actually was surprised Money Inc won this, I thought you would be going with Perfect/Rude vs Road Warriors for the belts. Then again, it was nice that Perfect and Rude didn't straight away get into the tag title picture, and The Warriors are going to be pissed at the new boys of the tag division.

    I'll be your heeeeero...... I'll be your heeeeeeerooooooo....... I know he's in his narcissist gimmick, but PLEASE have that as his theme! It's such a heel theme, telling people he'll be their hero haha

    Taker killed Bezerker. Riveting stuff.

    Haha nah I kid, quite enjoyed this actually, even if it was as predictable as piss. I hope Taker does something interesting in the future though, or at least is given a monster that isn't a joke like Kamala or Bezerker. Maybe a certain big tall guy in a muscle suit?

    Tatanka ....Ugh. No time for him to be honest. That is my bias showing, as I just think he's bland as piss the times I've seen him, but I feel bad for Bossman here. Was hoping he'd win here and maybe challenge Bret, ah well.

    Bret vs Bam Bam was a good underdog vs monster bout. I like that you used the KOTR 1993 finish of the electric chair reversal, it's defo my favourite of the rollups haha. Bigelow cracking Piper I'm sure is going to bring a TON of heat to Bam Bam and The Empire, will we see Piper come out of retirement again?!

    Out of all the squash matches, this one is my favourite, purely because the Steiners. If you're going to have squash matches on PPV, have Steiner's squashes every time plz.

    Ahhhhh, MY Main Event is here!!!! Jake's promo, as per with you, is incredible. Not his best one, but considering your WrestleMania build promos are my favourite promos on the site, it isn't a critique. You really shocked me with The Freak Show winning, although I'm loving the downfall of Hogan atm and Roberts being a fucking evil piece of shit. I love love LOVE it!!! The fireball as well, hopefully it went better that the last time we saw Hogan in a fireball spot haha.

    Crush squash was Crush squash. Bigmc123 did the Rusev joke before me. Fuck SAKE.

    Now the main event. In terms of the match itself, it was pretty damn good. I imagine at the time this would've been mindblowing. Everyone payed their rolls well. You made Sid look like a beast, Flair was the conniving prick of a champion, and Savage was the established name. The Elbow Drop breaking of the Figure 4 and Sid catching Flair's low blow sound like great spots. I TOTALLY understand why you put the belt on Sid. He has a ton of momentum right now and I don't blame you for capitalising. But I have to say, I feel like Flair deserved a longer reign. It felt like he was just getting started. Roberts coming in at the end had me giddy, I can't wait to see them fight and hopefully, Roberts can get that belt.

    Overall, a really good show! Roberts and the Triple Threat were highlights, Piper & The Empire has my attention, I'm TOTALLY down with Perfect/Rude vs the Road Warriors and Bret vs Shawn will be a fun feud, so aye. Good show.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Summerslam Review: Alright lets get this going first thing first and I can say that the Main Event shock me sort of that Justice won he gets a good push here but I thought Flair would win or Savage set up Jake vs. Randy Savage at Mania which would be great for title but insted you go the route of giving the young guy the title.

    Speaking of which I love your booking of Jake Roberts here it really makes him feel like a threat and I love the idea of him with Jack and Doink Freak Show

    HBK vs. Marty was everything you could ask for and it not only made HBK look like a star but, Marty feels like a good face here.

    Money Inc getting the win is the making of a great tag team divsion with steiners power and glory the hart foundation its a intresting time in your btb.

    Overall I think the show was worth the wait and you did a great job Jake Roberts is def one of my btboty nods.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Lol at starting the show with an ICO-PRO advert. That's too funny.

    Good start having Bulldog opening the show. Obviously his role in the real life version of this show was huge, so I think it was important to do something worthwhile with him given how big a deal he was over here. Kicking off the show and using him to get the crowd hot with the big win makes a lot of sense.

    Not sure how I feel about Perfectly Ravishing here I'm afraid. To be gone all this time and then to just be looking for tag gold makes them feel like a bit of an afterthought. Had they won the titles quite soon after Mania it might have been a way to keep them hot, but as it is they feel like two guys who were important who you don't know what else to do with them, and that's a shame after they were probably my favourite thing in this whole thread for so long.

    It's a fun angle with the Repo Man and Martel for sure. Bit of a nothing match, but no harm to have that second on the card. Good solid 1992 stuff all around, there.

    Ooh, the Headshrinkers. That could be a lot of fun if you decide to really go with them.

    Yeah, that's the way to pay off the Rockers story. The ending I think we all wish they'd had in real life. Will be interesting to see where both guys go from here. Surely Michaels is looking at moving in to the IC Title scene (I write reviews as I read them, so don't know who'll win there but presuming it'll be Bret), but how you rebuild Marty (who was far more talented than people gave him credit for and only flunked so badly due to his personal shit) will be fascinating. The match itself was great, and I give you a huge amount of credit for (mostly) not overstepping the line for brutality in a match like this. You know I've fed back before that at times you can err on the side of "modern" wrestling when writing a period of time before that would have been a thing, but you managed to get it right here in my eyes, and without any crazy, over-the-top spots. Good stuff.

    Ha! That DiBiase segment was gold!

    Fun little tag title match. LOVED the spot of stepping on the tie to stop the tag, can't remember seeing that before but it's great. I've already said my bit on Perfectly Ravishing so I'll now wait to see where they go, but I'm really glad Money Inc have the Tag Titles and DiBiase finally has some real success in this thread. Good booking all around I'd say.

    ~LUGER! Now that has my interest. Criminally underrated and a total shambles of a WWF run imo, so a lot of potential to be had here. Very excited to see where this goes. As a quick aside - I appreciate you giving all your new people slightly wacky vignettes before they debut. Very authentic.

    Decent Casket Match. You get a tonne of credit from me for running with a guy like Bezerker in this spot as it's not something you'd expect, and you get huge marks for creativity. The match itself was good, but only really going one way. But this has been a fun little angle between these guys, in an era where 'Taker didn't really fight anyone smaller than 6'6 and as such leaves your hands tied.

    Shame that Boss Man has been a bit of a wash out since his big turn, but Tatanka is the hot new thing so I get why he's getting a push. I think I was just too young to get in to him at the time so never understood his appeal (beyond a good look), so will be interesting to see if you have any bigger plans for him and how you get there.

    Nice idea having Bulldog come out again to give Bret the rub in front of this audience. The match itself was good, and I don't think there are many better at the big man/little man combination than Bret. Not hugely surprised he retained here (as I presume we have an early HBK/Hitman feud on the horizon) but it's the right call to give him a proper reign after his previous one was cut short. Interesting twist with Bam Bam. I'd have thought he'd have properly laid him out if he was going to attack him, so the fact that it was that one punch that Piper got up form makes me think you have something planned, and that definitely has my interest.

    Ha, I swear I hadn't seen Michaels' promo before I said all that stuff about him going for the IC Title.

    Cool promo from Razor. Slightly odd he didn't mention Ric Flair though?!

    Not much to say about the Steiners, just a cool down as you'd expect. Excited to see them get a real big push though, one of the greatest teams of all time for me.

    Fantastic promos before the six-man. The video recap was great, then you had Jake being all creepy and you had my interest... but then you totally knocked it out of the park with the Hogan and Warrior promos. Fantastic.

    What a fun match this was as well. Love that it was pure chaos, really not the type of thing you'd expect to see around this period. Really enjoyable. Cactus and Doink were actually the stars of the show for me here, and I wouldn't have expected to say that. But you got the balance of chaos right given that on the face team you didn't exactly have any super workers holding it together. And then Jake's threat of "playing with fire" comes true. Brilliant. If I'm being super nitpicky I feel like you could have done more to play up the fireball after the match, as in the WWF in '92 that is a CRAZY spot, and you just kinda jumped in to a hotline shill and jokey segment with the Repo Man. Felt like it needed a real, extended "shit can you believe what we just saw?" moment for me. But aside from that, a pretty flawlessly executed angle.

    Again, not much to say about Crush winning a squash. Fair enough to hit a cool down after a moment like the fireball. Still got high hopes for my boy Crush though.

    And then we get to the main event. This show has been so long in the making (!) that I can't remember if I've already said this, but I honestly feel like Sid v Flair was the way to go here. The match was really good, well-written and you put over Sid huge at the end, all of which were the right calls... but I feel like it'd have landed better had it been Sid and Flair one-on-one. Sid standing up to the detestable Flair and beating him clean would have been a huge PPV main event, but Savage's presence made it feel a little watered down.

    Love Jake being there to almost challenge Sid, though. He's got another huge win behind him, so elevating him to the top and a run with the champion is a great call. If this means we aren't getting a straight up Flair/Sid match though then I definitely think it was a bit of a missed opportunity.

    All in all, another fantastic show from the king of big-time PPVs. The only thing that didn't quite land for me was the main event, but that was more in the pre-booking than the match itself, which was very well booked. The six man war was excellent and will be getting added to my awards log for match, feud and individual (Jake) of the year, and you paid off the Rockers split very well. Really, really great effort as always from one of the absolute top tier guys on here.

    Now don't leave us waiting so long next time...

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    About time you posted this!! Have to say though, the most irritating thing on this show was the mis-spelling of WemblEy. The correct spelling was right there on your graphic, lol!!

    My only other negative I could pick out of the show was Hogan jobbing out again. Everytime I see him suffer a loss in this thread, it just takes me out of it, and kills my suspension of disbelief. Obviously, if you had Hogan get his formulaic win time and time again, it’d be boring for you as a writer, but there’s no alternate universe where I can buy prime Hulk Hogan willingly accepting loss after loss (I know he didn’t take the fall here, but it’s still a Hogan loss) on big shows, and a losing streak gimmick isn’t one I could ever get behind for a guy like Hogan either. Really, at this point, if this is what Hogan was being booked like, I’d have expected him to pack it in already and head for Hollywood. Though, perhaps, with the finish, that’s the write off (at least for the time being) for the Hulkster.

    As I say, that’s the ONLY negative for me. It probably stands out bigger too, because everything else is unbelievably on point, booking wise for the time period. Bulldog in the hot opener, getting the hot tag, sending the home fans into a frenzy? That’s the perfect spot for him imo if he isn’t in the main event. The Repo Man/Martel feud was so corny, but fitting for the time period still, and I loved that build up, along with the match, in a perfect spot to cool things down after your big hot opener, settling things before the Rockers match. Hoping for more fun skits with the Repo Man in the future, as hinted at afterwards too.

    Some major spots in that Michaels/Jannetty match too – arguably going a little overboard for 1992 – even though I remember you mentioning in the past that the WWF here is moving toward an edgier product. Something like the Brass Knucks should still be used in a finish, and not for a near fall imo, but the closing stretch was tremendous with the stereo Superkicks, and Michaels finally landing with the Superkick into the chair to put Marty away. Nice to put Marty over after the match too, though I suspect he’ll drift down the card from here, just simply unable to measure up to the bigger personalities on the roster. Right man went over, and this – for me – was a big contender for MOTN honours.

    Wasn’t entirely sure what to think about the Perfectly Ravishing stuff, but I’ll reserve judgment. Just struck me as odd that they’d screw LOD over here, if they’re targeting the titles. If they want the belts, wouldn’t they wait until after the match for LOD to win and then attack them to set up the feud? LOD vs. Perfect & Rude sounds like a HUGE match, and it’ll completely overshadow whatever title feud you come up with for Money Inc imo. On the other hand, I’m actually happy to see Money Inc win the titles, they needed some big success here to strengthen their stable.

    The Taker/Berzerker and Tatanka/Bossman matches were what they were, though the added Casket stipulation added something more to that match, and I’m sure I said before that I appreciated the effort on your part to do something different by pushing Berzerker as a foe for the Deadman. Steiners match was a typical enhancement match too, that probably elevates them to #1 Contenders for the titles.

    I.C Title match read like a good one, and I liked the nod to the real life finish from the KOTR in 1993 between the two. Sort of expected Piper to be more ‘active’ as President than Tunney was, but I’m not keen on seeing him in physical angles this soon into his run. It feels as if this is setting up an in ring return already for Piper, which also feels way too soon … but again, I’ll wait and see how things play out with Bam Bam and what the repercussions are for his punch here. Mostly though, I LOVED the post match promo with Michaels backstage. Him vs. Bret for the I.C Title feels like a no-brainer, and I’d expect this feud to last for the remainder of the year most probably.

    A LOT of debuts on this show; Headshrinkers, Lex AND Razor. Feels like one too many to introduce all at one time, personally, but I think this fresh blood is probably needed going forward. Lex and Razor especially can be major additions to your roster.

    Also, should’ve said earlier – those pre-match promos from Roberts and Hogan were absolutely fantastic. Hogan especially was pure Hogan imo, and the addition of Warrior was great too – so cartoony, so over the top; just fantastic, and set the stage for the huge tag showdown. If it wasn’t for all the losses Hogan has suffered for the past year, I’d have really loved this finish, and the fireball spot was a “Holy Shit” moment for me too. Thought that was a great idea, and as Keef pointed out, played into Roberts words about playing with fire, which is something else I love to see. Beefcake taking a DDT with his re-arranged face is the perfect way to close the match too. Thought Cactus and Doink were well used here too, getting in the Cactus elbow for a spot, and the thought of Doink ENJOYING being choked silly by Warrior was a great touch too.

    I also agree with Keef on his assessment that not enough of a big deal was made of the fireball spot. That’s probably the most extreme moment in WWF history, and you shifted from the post match (which was done really well btw, with the fans crying etc) to transitioning to a hotline shill and a skit with Repo Man. On a positive note, if you tap into the prankster side of Owen, you’ll have the best booked character in BTB!! Lol. Him setting up Repo Man repoing the briefcase was fantastic – just not in the right spot on the show, imo.

    Interested to see where Crush can land on the roster, as it would appear he’s in line for a big push with this squash win. Personally, I’d have still liked a longer focus and discussion on what happened to Hogan, as again, it’s the most violent/extreme act probably in the history of the company at this point.

    Liked the idea of giving all three men in the main event an interview during the show at various points. Without wanting to just parrot what Keef said again, I do agree that the triple threat rules felt tacked on, and the money was in a Flair/Sid one on one match. Still, a fitting show for an historic match type, and definitely, you put the right man over in the end. Much like with Perfect last year, you’ve struck while the iron is hot with Sid. Roberts emerging instantly as the next challenger for the title should be interesting, and it’s the right direction to go in, imo. Roberts is clearly the hottest thing going in the thread right now, and the biggest threat you could possibly put in Sid’s way.

    Helluva show, Tank. Well worth the wait for the SummerSlam spectacular from WEMBLEY

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    It's been a while but i'm super excited for this bro! One of my favorite bookers of all time on this forum. Right, here we go!

    WWF SummerSlam Review:

    - Really liked the throwback with the ICO-PRO sign Haha!

    - Good introduction

    - I really liked the promo from the Genius Haha! Simple but effective heat. Bulldog and Owen Hart together, love it. I'm glad they picked up the victory! Good match to start the proceedings.

    - Perfectly Ravishing are here to stay! Well.. For another year at least. I like the idea of them staying together and entering the tag team title chase. Gives a strong heel team to the division and that's a great move.

    - Quick victory for the Model- Rick Martel. Moves the show along nicely.

    - The Headshrinkers! Nice! Another good addition to the tag team division.

    - Nice promo from Jannetty and I can't wait for this match! That was BRUTAL- I loved it Haha! So glad Shawn picked up the victory and it feels like the Heartbreak Kid was truly born tonight and I can't wait to see how he progresses from here going forward.

    - I liked the exchange between DiBiase and Hayes Haha! Also the short but effective promo from the LOD was good too. I think you do the promo's so well for many different characters mate and you deserve a lot of credit for that man.

    The thought of Hawk & Animal coming down on motorcycles and getting that Road Warriors pop! OHHHHHHHH WHAT A RUSH! Sad to see the LOD lose the Championships but Perfectly Ravishing already leaving their mark and probably setting up their first feud was cool. Also I feel like the Empire needed this victory with Money Inc becoming the Champions.

    - Lex Luger coming soon? Hmm, I'm not really a fan but be interesting to see how you use him.

    - Big deal next as we get the first ever CASKET MATCH! Got to say, wish it was against someone more formidable then the Berzerker but you've built the match well. As expected the Undertaker comes out with the victory and I'm happy with that- no other way it could go really.

    - Simple promo from Sid Justice but did the job

    - Second appearance for the Brass Knuckles who are working overtime tonight Haha! BIG victory for Tatanka!

    - DiBiase promising that Bam Bam will be the NEW IC Champion tonight. Bret has other idea's though and says he's going to do his part tonight and retain his Championship.

    - Really good match. I wasn't sure which way it was going to go at one point but the ring technician in Bret get's the job done with a roll up and scores the pinfall victory. No wonder Bam Bam is furious with that loss and he takes it out on Roddy Piper. Oh boy! I think you're going to pay for that Bam Bam.

    - Bret vs Shawn! OOO, I'm excited! I'd maybe have both continue winning and meet a little down the line though personally. Save it- as much as I'm super excited to see it go down. Good promo from Shawn.

    - Say, hello... to the BAD GUY! I love Razor, one of my all time favourites. Good promo, mayne.

    - I'm good with the Steiners getting the squash victory! Man, I remember not long ago saying that the tag division was lacking a little and now it looks stacked.

    - DAMN! That Jake promo was GOOD. Have loved your portrayal of Jake and it's been even better since you added the Freak Show. I liked the Hogan and Warrior promo too surprisingly, you've really nailed the promo's buddy. Well done.

    - I think eventually you have to have Hogan come back strong and beat the Freak Show, it's exactly what would have happened in this time period but I can't tell you how much I'm loving this different perspective and portrayal of your WWF with Hogan kind of struggling to overcome Jake Roberts and the Freak Show. The match was so good and the spot with the fireball was absolutely brilliant after the promo from earlier on. More should be made of the fireball because that visually would be crazy.

    - Fun segment with the Hotline Room and Repo stealing the IRS briefcase Haha!

    - Crush.. Crushing the Mountie with a squash.

    - Good promo from the Nature Boy and it's MAIN EVENT TIME!!

    Really good match and Justice is served and Sid is the NEW.. WWF CHAMPION! I was not expecting that to be honest with you. Jake Roberts has his sights set on the WWF Championship and I'm excited for this!


    Overall = Very enjoyable show and worth the wait dude! This will be going right into my awards log for sure. There was nothing I disliked really but the Promo's were such a stand out for me, you nailed every single one! Kudos Brother, well done!

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond


    After saying he was going to do it following his huge victory at Summerslam, he did it! In a shocking turn of events, “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels lived up to his promise from Summerslam when he defeated Bret Hart for the Intercontinental Championship. Michaels wasted no time following the plane ride back from The UK and on the first House Show back in the states, pinned Bret Hart-but the title change didn’t come without controversy.

    The match took place in Boca Raton, Florida on September 5, 1992 inside the small Boca Raton Civic Center. This town also happens to be the same town that Ted Dibiase bills as his “Winter Residence.” In a night that was proclaimed as “The Million Dollar Empire Appreciation Night” by Dibiase himself at the start of the show, Dibiase and the entire Empire made their presence felt throughout the entirety of the night. In the Main Event, Bret Hart-living up to his moniker of being a fighting champion- was up against Shawn Michaels in a match for Hart’s Intercontinental Championship.

    The two men tore the house down in what was labeled as “one of the best matches not seen on television” by one fan. Towards the end of the match, the momentum shifted in favor of Bret Hart. As Hart was about to apply the Sharpshooter, Bam Bam Bigelow made his way down to the ring. He didn’t do much, but his presence alone distracted Hart long enough for Michaels to slip out of the Sharpshooter grasp and roll up Hart for the victory.

    It ended up being a very controversial finish, but the title change stands and Shawn Michaels is your NEW Intercontinental Champion. Fans littered the ring with garbage as Michaels celebrated with his newly won title. Then, a beat-down ensued as IRS, Big Bossman and Dibiase joined Bigelow inside the ring as they laid waste to Bret Hart. British Bulldog, Owen Hart and Jim Neidhart all did their best to run down and save Hart but Dibiase had paid off the security guards in the building and they stopped the trio from helping their family member. This now personal feud between The Hart Family and The Million Dollar Empire will surely be addressed by WWF President Piper in the very near future.



    In a night full of twists and turns, fireballs and shocking title changes, Summerslam 1992 has already been billed as one of the greatest WWF PPV’s of all time! The WWF headed across the pond to the lovely UK and left a mark for generations to come. The fallout from Summerslam 1992 will be talked about all throughout the final weeks of summer, until we begin to gear up for a jam-packed last few months of 1992. With Survivor Series lurking around the corner, only a pit stop at Saturday Night’s Main Event in October is left for the calendar year. Let’s take a look at some of the more intriguing stories coming out of Summerslam.

    Sid Justice completed “The Summer of Sid” by defeating two of the best wrestlers of our generation-Ric Flair and Macho Man- at Summerslam to become the NEW WWF World Heavyweight Champion. It wasn’t long after Sid celebrated his title win when he turned around only to see Jake Roberts and The Freak Show in the opposite corner of the ring. Sid was ready to take them all on at once, but Roberts wasn’t there for a fight- he made it clear that he wanted Sid to know that he will be lurking. Sid Justice, known for his brute strength and domination inside of the squared circle, may now have to sharpen his mind if Jake Roberts is his next opponent down the line. Roberts will surely use Doink the Clown and Cactus Jack as pawns to take out Sid, the same way he did to Hulk Hogan throughout 1992.

    On the topic of Hulk Hogan, it was noted that he suffered serious burns to his eyes and face following the devastating fireball from Jake Roberts during their Six Man War Match at Summerslam. The match itself is being billed as one of the most brutal matches in the past decade in the WWF, and at the end it saw Jake Roberts throw a fireball into the face of Hulk Hogan. Brutus Beefcake then took a devastating DDT from Roberts after checking on his best friend, and Roberts ended up winning the match for his team. Beefcake was also banged up during the match, and may need to go back to the plastic surgeon for more work on his repaired face. This leaves The Ultimate Warrior as the only man still standing from his team, and he will surely be on a war path after Jake Roberts in the near future.

    It ended up being an up-and-down night for The Million Dollar Empire. Ted Dibiase and IRS virtually stole the Tag Team titles from The Legion of Doom after Perfectly Ravishing distracted LOD long enough for Money Inc. to steal the victory. Many questions now loom about Perfectly Ravishing’s involvement in the match, and the LOD will be looking for revenge on virtually the entire tag team division. The main question coming out of this is what will Perfectly Ravishing do next? Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude are joined together at the hip right now, and the addition of them in the tag team division makes the division more stacked than it already is.

    Bam Bam Bigelow was unsuccessful in winning the Intercontinental Championship from Bret Hart, but the main story was his actions following his loss. Bigelow, fuming over his loss turned his attention to WWF President Roddy Piper and drilled him with a right hand. It is unknown what type of action Piper will be taking, but with that punch followed by The Empire’s distraction in the Hart/Michaels match days later, The Empire are skating on thin ice right now in the WWF.

    The Undertaker was successful in the first ever Casket Match as he stuffed The Berzerker into the casket for the victory. The Undertaker has been virtually unstoppable since leaving The Empire one year ago, and one has to think that sooner or later “The Phenom” will end up in the WWF title picture, very soon. Where does The Undertaker go from here? Find out in the coming months!

    There might not be a hotter superstar in the WWF right now than “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels. After finally ending his year-long blood feud with Marty Jannetty in a brutal match at Summerslam, Michaels made good on his word during his post-match interview and defeated Bret Hart to become the NEW Intercontinental Champion. Michaels is certainly on top of the world right now, but challengers such as an angry Bret Hart, Tatanka, Crush and a host of others will be chomping at the bit to take a crack at Michaels.

    More jam-packed action saw Tatanka pick up a victory of revenge of Big Bossman, The Steiner Brothers dismantling Power & Glory, Crush taking care of The Mountie with ease, “The Model” Rick Martel sneaking out a victory over The Repo Man, and the tandem of British Bulldog and Owen Hart taking down The Beverly Brothers. All of the victors have a legitimate argument for title shots in the respective divisions, so we will see where this all leads down the line.

    On top of all that action, we have some newcomers in the WWF looking to make their mark. Look out for “The Bad Guy” Razor Ramon, The Headshrinkers, and “The Narcissist” Lex Luger to all debut inside the squared circle at some point in the near future. Summerslam is now in our rear view mirror, but the action is just getting started as we wind down on the year 1992. This is truly a special time inside the WWF, so hang onto your seats, because we are in for one amazing ride!


    A Peak Behind the Curtain

    “Macho Man” Randy Savage is set for minor knee surgery which will see him out of action for the rest of 1992. Known for being a working man, Savage is set to join Vince McMahon in the announcer’s booth for the remainder of the year while Gorilla Monsoon shifts to more of a backstage role.

    Hulk Hogan, who has severe burns on his face and is tired of the grind, has requested time off. The burnout, no pun intended, was expected to happen and he will be in touch with the WWF starting in 1993.

    Both Earthquake and Typhoon have healed up from various injuries suffered in the earlier part of 1992 and will be returning to the ring in the coming weeks.

    Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude did indeed sign new 1 year deals which locks them up with the WWF through Summerslam 1993.

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond




    As the days begin to shorten and winter looms upon us, it is time to put Summerslam 1992 in the rear view mirror as we head towards the final months of 1992. You can argue that the WWF has never been hotter, but it is also at a highly apparent crossroads. With the likes of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man not in the picture, there is a clear power vacuum for the top spot in the WWF. We shift our focus as we head into the deep Fall season with Saturday Night’s Main Event on October 31, 1992 from the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. Let’s take a look at how things are shaping up leading into this can’t-miss event!

    ONE FINAL SHOT
    Sid Justice capped off “The Summer of Sid” with an impressive victory over Ric Flair and Macho Man at Summerslam to become the NEW WWF Champion. Although his celebration was ultimately interrupted by Jake Roberts, Sid showed that what he does inside the squared circle speaks for itself, giving him the most prestigious prize in all of sports. As the case with the many champions before him, Sid now finds himself as the top dog of the WWF, with a firm target square on his back. With the likes of Jake Roberts, The Undertaker, Bam Bam Bigelow and many more eyeing a potential WWF title match in the near future, Sid Justice has other business to take care of first, in the form of the most recent champion, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

    Following Summerslam, Ric Flair immediately petitioned WWF President Roddy Piper for a re-match against Sid Justice. Flair along with his trusty cohort Bobby Heenan cited it was truly unfair for Ric Flair to defend the title against not just one, but two men at Summerslam. Flair and Heenan made the case that had it been just a straight 1 on 1 match between Sid and Flair, Flair would have easily won without any distractions of a third man in the match.

    Piper, not one to mince words, quickly told Ric Flair how he felt on an episode of Superstars in mid-September. Still holding a grudge from Wrestlemania 8 where Ric Flair cheated to retire Piper, Piper had it in the back of his mind just what he was going to do about the situation. Piper arraigned for a sit down with Flair and WWF Champion Sid Justice. Flair came out alongside Heenan and both men looked as determined as ever to get another title shot. Piper instructed Sid to sit back and relax, because he didn’t want another unauthorized brawl on his hands at the moment. Sid, with the WWF title belt draped around his shoulder, obliged as he sat down, staring a hole through his once best friend and tag team partner. Before Piper could begin, Flair summed up his Summerslam experience as a bad dream that took place on another continent. Flair was adamant that he could take Sid Justice anytime, anywhere. Piper sat and nodded through Flair’s tirade when a smile appeared on his face.

    Piper agreed with Flair that he was a fair president and would think things through before making a decision. Piper said he has thought long and hard about this since the plane ride back from Summerslam and decided that he was going to grant Flair his re-match at October’s Saturday Night’s Main Event. Sid nodded in approval, showing that he won’t back down from any challenger. Flair and Heenan embraced as Heenan pumped his fist in the air out of excitement but both men were soon stopped dead in their celebration…

    HOWEVER…


    Piper hopped up from his chair with a grin on his face. He then stated that if Ric Flair loses, in any manner, whether it be countout, disqualification, referee’s decision, or- like Piper thinks he will-square in the middle of the ring after a Powerbomb- HE WILL BE FIRED FROM THE WWF!

    The crowd ate up Piper’s words big time and cheered as they shouted for Flair to sign the contract. The jubilation from Flair and Heenan’s faces immediately turned into anger. Flair began going on a tirade, ripping his suit jacket off and throwing it down on the ground. Heenan followed suit and ripped his suit jacket off as well, throwing it on the ground. Piper then reminded Flair that he was nice enough to grant Flair a re-match in the first place, something that as President of the WWF, he has no obligation to do. As all of this was happening, Sid Justice continued to sit there, watching it all unfold. Piper handed Sid a pen and he signed his portion of the contract.

    After pacing back and forth inside the ring, pulling his hair out in frustration, Flair finally calmed down and signed the contract. Flair forcefully took the mic from Piper as he stared right at Sid Justice before pointing his finger at him, telling him: “You’ve never beaten me 1 on 1 before big boy, so why would it be any different this time around? That title is coming home to daddy!” A fired up Flair signed the contract before letting out his trademark “WOOOO!” right in the direction of Sid Justice. Sid stood up from his seat from the first time, and walked over towards Flair. Piper instructed both men to stay calm and save it for Saturday Night’s Main Event. Sid continued to stare at Flair as he raised his title high in the air before telling Flair: “This will be as close as you ever get to this title again!” Flair and Heenan stormed off, as Flair walked up the entrance way, attempting to process what just happened.

    The stage is set and the contract is signed, and Ric Flair has agreed to all the terms. If Ric Flair is unsuccessful in defeating Sid Justice at Saturday Night’s Main Event, he WILL BE FIRED on the spot! In a serendipitous form of poetic justice, it makes all the sense in the world that Roddy Piper-the man Ric Flair retired at Wrestlemania 8- gets to decide Ric Flair’s career, and the man that Ric Flair brought into the WWF in Sid Justice will get a chance to end it. Will Sid Justice continue his dominant run as the reigning WWF World Champion? Or will Ric Flair get lucky one more time in 1992 and take a trip back to the promise land in the WWF? You surely do not want to miss this one unfold at October’s Saturday Night’s Main Event!

    FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS
    There may not be a more dangerous man in the WWF right now than Jake Roberts. Roberts, who after a lengthy suspension found himself embroiled in an 8 month feud with Hulk Hogan, finally, in his words-put an end to Hulkamania. Roberts along with Cactus Jack and Doink the Clown, collectively known as “The Freak Show” have been running roughshod over the entire WWF throughout the summer. Following one of the most heinous acts in the history of the WWF where Roberts threw a ball of fire into the face of Hulk Hogan at Summerslam, Roberts made his presence felt at the end of the show when he and The Freak Show came out to take a look at newly crowned WWF Champion Sid Justice.

    Since Summerslam, Roberts has made it clear that he has now shifted his focus from ending Hulkamania to ending Sid Justice and ultimately taking home the WWF Championship at some point in the near future. Standing in his path to the title is the one man that is left healthy from his team at Summerslam- The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior returned to the WWF over the summer to help his friends Hulk Hogan and Brutus Beefcake in their fight against The Freak Show. Following Summerslam, he is the only one left standing-something that Jake Roberts is fully aware of.

    In the weeks following Summerslam Roberts took to the mic to share to the world his victory in his quest to end Hulkamania forever. On one particular episode of Superstars in late September, Roberts was once again inside the ring, Doink and Cactus in tow, talking about how he ended Hulkamania, and how he plans to right all of the wrongs within the WWF. Suddenly, Ultimate Warrior’s music blasted throughout the arena as the fans reached fever pitch. Warrior ran down to the ring with no regard on the fact that it would be 3-on-1 and in a surprise attack, ended up taking down all three members of The Freak Show. Warrior then took to the mic and challenged Roberts to a No Disqualifications Match at Saturday Night’s Main Event! Not known to back down from a challenge, Roberts quickly accepted as he along with Doink and Cactus retreated up the aisle way.

    Since then, The Freak Show has retreated back to hanging out in the basements of arenas, or not showing up at all. The last time this happened was before Summerslam, and it ended up with Roberts becoming the most dangerous man in the WWF. The scene is set for Saturday Night’s Main Event, as Jake Roberts will go 1 on 1 with The Ultimate Warrior in a No Disqualifications Match. The show, which happens to take place on Halloween night, will certainly be right in The Freak Show’s wheelhouse, and Roberts will definitely be using his scare tactics that night. Will they work against a man as strong and powerful as The Ultimate Warrior? Also, if Roberts were to win the match, he has already stated his desire to go up against Sid Justice for the WWF Championship. If the stars align for both men at the show we just might be treated to another face-off. You won’t want to miss Saturday Night’s Main Event!

    THE PRESIDENTIAL RULING
    Bam Bam Bigelow put himself square in WWF President Piper’s crosshairs in one of the more controversial happenings at Summerslam. Following a hard fought, crushing defeat to Bret Hart, Bigelow, still fuming over the loss, decided it was in his best interest to take out his frustrations on President Piper-drilling him with a right hand. Not every day does it happen where an employee goes right up to their boss and punches him in the mouth, but this is the WWF-where anything can happen!

    Piper, known from implying “an eye for an eye” structure in the WWF, didn’t fight back after it happened, but has gone all out in his newly drawn war against Ted Dibiase and his Million Dollar Empire. Following Summerslam, Piper first addressed the situation on an episode of Superstars where he said he would not be suspending Bigelow for his actions at Summerslam. Instead, Piper said he would be giving The Empire a chance to redeem themselves, albeit under what Piper would describe as “impossible circumstances.”

    In the weeks following Piper’s first announcement, The Empire went along with business as usual- helping each other win matches, paying off referees and timekeepers, openly recruiting new talent to join The Empire. It wasn’t until the middle of October where Piper decided to address The Empire’s future. Piper announced he has thought long and hard about how to punish Bigelow for his actions at Summerslam and came up with a brilliant idea. At Survivor Series it will be Bigelow, Dibiase, IRS, Big Bossman and Virgil (yes, Virgil-the bodyguard of The Empire, hand-picked by Piper) teaming up to take on a team of Piper’s choosing.

    Before Piper could announce the first member of his team, Bret Hart’s music blasted throughout the PA system. Hart made his way down in a hurry to throw his name into the hat. Hart, still furious over The Empire’s involvement during his Intercontinental title loss to Shawn Michaels back in early September, wanted to join the action and help defeat The Empire. Hart asked for Piper’s permission to bring along two more guys who have a history with The Empire- British Bulldog and Owen Hart!

    Piper nodded in approval as Owen and Bulldog came out, now putting Team Piper to 3 members. Piper then announced the fourth member would be another man with a long history with The Empire- CRUSH! Crush made his way out as Dibiase and crew were furious over the addition of Crush. Piper then stated that he would leave the fifth man to be a mystery, only to be introduced at October’s Saturday Night’s Main Event. The Empire was irate at not finding out who the fifth man would be until then, because in Dibiase’s words, that doesn’t give him enough time to buy someone off of Piper’s team.

    In one more turn of events, Piper also announced at Saturday Night’s Main Event he would be announcing a MONUMENTAL STIPULATION to the 5-on-5 Survivor Series matchup! Team Piper is already as impressive as any team in Survivor Series history, and knowing President Piper, this fifth man will be the most impressive of all! However, we cannot count out The Million Dollar Empire, as they have shown when they flex their muscle they can be a powerful, driving force in the WWF. With Dibiase and IRS as the reigning Tag Team Champions, they have shown that they can compete in any division and be successful. Stay tuned as this all unfolds when President Piper makes his “Presidential Ruling” at Saturday Night’s Main Event!

    BREAKING HEARTS
    To say Shawn Michaels is one of the hottest WWF superstars at the moment would be an understatement. Michaels came out of his blood feud with former best friend turned bitter enemy Marty Jannetty victorious following a brutal match at Summerslam, and quickly set his sights on the Intercontinental Championship. It wasn’t long after returning to the United States from London that Michaels realized his dream and defeated Bret Hart to become the NEW Intercontinental Champion! The match wasn’t without controversy, but President Piper allowed the match to stand, and Michaels is now your reigning Intercontinental Champion.

    Since winning the title, Michaels is now the sole focus of many superstars of the WWF looking to get their hands on the title that many deem “the stepping stone” to the World title. One man in particular, Tatanka, made it his sole purpose to climb up the rankings, winning matches at a high rate. The higher-ups in the WWF took notice of Tatanka’s impressive run throughout the later summer and into October, and awarded him the coveted spot of becoming Shawn Michaels’ challenger at Survivor Series for the Intercontinental Championship.

    Not many inside the WWF had a problem with Tatanka becoming the number 1 contender, except for the champion himself- Shawn Michaels. Michaels can be seen as the complete opposite of what Bret Hart was while he was champion. Bret Hart defended his title night in and night out from Wrestlemania 8 all the way up to losing to Shawn Michaels at a house show. Michaels on the other hand has made it clear that he likes to space his title defenses out, and is more into enjoying the spotlight and perks that come with being champion.

    Before the two are set to collide at Survivor Series, Shawn Michaels has announced he will be debuting his new talk-show, titled “The Heartbreak Hotel” at Saturday Night’s Main Event, and his first guest will be none other than Tatanka! Tatanka is a man of few words who lets his action inside the squared circle do the talking for him. With these two set to come to blows in just three weeks following Saturday Night’s Main Event, there will surely be tension on The Heartbreak Hotel. Will Shawn Michaels make it out of his own talk show in one piece? Or will he use his gift of gab and quick wits to put down Tatanka, and make it out unscathed? All eyes will be on the new Intercontinental Champion at Saturday Night’s Main Event!

    SAY HELLO
    "The Bad Guy" is finally here! After weeks of vignettes showing Razor Ramon walking down the streets of Miami, decked out in outlandish outfits that only a man of his style could pull off, he finally made his debut at Summerslam and let the entire WWF know he wasn’t here to play around. Ramon seemingly put down everyone from interviewer Gene Okerlund to Macho Man in the short time he had the mic. It is evident that Ramon has a slick tongue, but he has yet to make his presence felt inside the squared circle. That will all change at Saturday Night’s Main Event when he makes his in-ring debut against Koko B. Ware!

    Koko B. Ware, a veteran of the WWF with over 100 matches under his belt will be a highly formidable opponent for Ramon. Ramon doesn’t see Koko to be anything other than a small obstacle he will easily navigate through on his way to bigger and better things. Razor Ramon has the clear advantage here, since there is no tape out there for Koko to study leading into this match. Will Razor Ramon, the man “oozing with machismo” put his name on the map with an impressive victory? Or will he show the WWF that he can talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk? Razor Ramon has the look of a future World Champion, but has to work his way up the ladder, and it all starts at Saturday Night’s Main Event!

    TAG TEAM TURMOIL
    The WWF may be at a crossroads in terms of the Main Event picture at the moment, but it is clearly evident that the one division that is stacked at the moment is the Tag Team Division. With Tag Team Champions Money Inc. tied up in a war with President Piper, many other teams will look to take advantage of the small window to showcase their talents in the upcoming month. There are currently eight teams in the division that all have a case to make in challenging for the Tag Team titles, but only one team can start off with an impressive showing at Saturday Night’s Main Event.

    That team is The Headshrinkers. Fatu and Samu, led by their famous manager Afa, have taken the WWF by storm since Summerslam. After a vignette showed at Summerslam, curiosity filled the tag team division about The Headshrinkers. These two Samoan behemoths tore through the undercard of Superstars throughout September and October, but face their biggest challenge yet in the form of The Nasty Boys at Saturday Night’s Main Event. With Jimmy Hart alongside, The Nasty Boys make for very formidable opponents, and will be The Headshrinkers first true test in the WWF.

    Another team making waves across the Tag Team Division is The Steiner Brothers. After dismantling Power & Glory at Summerslam, the sky seems to be the limit for Rick and Scott Steiner. They will surely be intently watching The Headshrinkers performance at Saturday Night’s Main Event as they look to jockey for position up the ladder themselves.

    Lurking in the distance is what could possibly be the most dangerous tag team in all of WWF- Perfectly Ravishing. After a disastrous Wrestlemania 8 which saw both Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude lose their respective title matches, the duo embarked across the globe, looking to find the best deal possible. The two eventually settled on re-signing with the WWF, which was essentially their plan all along. The ruse of signing elsewhere just helped them bargain a bigger, more lucrative deal with the WWF- something both Mr. Perfect and Rick Rude are all too happy to share with anyone that will listen.

    Hot on their trail is the former Tag Team Champions- The Legion of Doom. Currently on a hiatus from the WWF, LOD will surely not let Perfectly Ravishing slide after the antics they pulled at Summerslam, which ultimately led to their defeat. LOD has proven time and time again that they may be down, but are never out-as The Beverly Brothers can attest to. Perfectly Ravishing have been looking over their shoulders since Summerslam, waiting for LOD to strike. Will LOD strike at Saturday Night’s Main Event? Tune in to find out!

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Welcome back! Always a happy sight to see this thread pop up after a hiatus, so let’s get to it!


    Running Sid vs Flair as a singles match in the aftermath of Summerslam feels like an essential direction in order to tie up the loose ends, and put any doubt to bed after the 3 way (glad you had Flair make a big deal over it) before moving on to the fresh challenges awaiting Sid. Big stipulation attached too for a SNME, and feels like a write off for Flair just a few months earlier than in real life. But if there’s one thing that’ll make Sid an even bigger babyface to the fans, it’ll be forcing Flair to pack his bags!


    Crikey, this is PPV level shit for SNME! Roberts vs. Warrior is a massive match, and it’s only the co-main! The No DQ stip feels a bit tacked on imo, and probably stupid for Warrior to even make that challenge (so, in character then, lol) as it basically invites trouble on himself from Cactus and Doink too, with no need for them to have to sneak about it. Can’t see anything other than a Roberts win, considering how hard he’s been pushed, and he feels like the logical next program with Sid after Sid finishes his business with Flair considering the end of Summerslam.


    I love that set up for the 5 on 5 at Survivor Series. Very logical picks to set against the Empire, and keeping the fifth name a mystery was explained well and also adds more intrigue. Guessing the stipulation will be title shots for everyone on the winning team or something along those lines, but either way, I’m a big supporter of Survivor Series matches having stakes attached.


    Tatanka feels like a filler feud for Shawn, and I hope you’re going to eventually get back to Shawn/Bret as we deserve that feud to be played out here over the title. The story is there too, with Shawn the total opposite as a champion, not keen to defend his belt.


    Razor should be a great addition to your roster as you transition out of one era and into the next. Perfect debut match too to get him up and running.


    Thought you were going to run a Tag Team Turmoil match there with that heading! Good write up to put over the competition in the division, especially when you factor in the star power of Perfectly Ravishing and LOD at the end!! Slightly disappointing you haven’t had Perfect and Rude more involved after that impact at Summerslam, as it feels like that’d be the thing to do considering how massive Perfect got as champion.


    With just the four matches at SNME, and two feeling like at best, extended squashes, I suspect the two biggies to be going long. Sid, Jake, Razor and the Headshrinkers should all be winning, and you’ve always made sensible decisions in that department, so I don’t see any swerves coming. The real suspense comes with Pipers announcement. Looks a cracking line up for SNME! Can’t wait to read it!

    Re: WWF - 1991 and Beyond

    Great to have this back again!

    I won't leave predictions as I imagine the results should be fairly obvious, but for good reason. The two main matches are HUGE for SNME, and I love that you've counterbalanced it with some dross as well. Sid needs the win over the former champ to legitimise him, and Roberts going over Warrior as they head towards their collision should be a lot of fun too.

    I was kind of surprised that you split Bret off from Michaels already, but I'm guessing that's all part of your plan to give HBK credibility elsewhere before the inevitable rematch. I gotta say, I love you having the heel win the belt on a house show, 'cos it gives people a reason to buy tickets, but also means your big babyface doesn't job in front of a big audience. Really sound logic there. And "Heartbreak Hotel"? I dunno if you stole that from a real thing, but I love it.

    I'm interested as to who the big reveal will be for Piper (genuinely can't think who joined around this time who you haven't already mentioned elsewhere), and looking forward to seeing how Razor settles in. Between Sid as champ, Bret and Shawn fighting over the IC belt (eventually), Luger about to debut, Razor coming in, we really are hitting the New Generation. Will be fascinating to see what you do with it.

    Very excited mate, and hope we get this shower quicker than we did Summerslam
