Main Event Fails, But There's Enough Entertainment Here To Be Decent
26 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In terms of overall drama and pacing, SummerSlam 1993 is actually a pretty successful event. It has it's share of stinkers, but also a good deal of entertainment.

The Good: -Razor Ramon as an established superstar (taking on Ted DiBiase). - Intercontinental Title Match: Shawn Michaels (budding star) vs. Mr. Perfect (on the way out) - The 1-2-3 Kid gimmick is actually kind of cool...taking a "jobber" and flipping the script. -Bret Hart vs. Doink the Clown. Once you get past all the Jerry Lawler crutches nonsense, the match is actually pretty good.

The Bad: -WWF couldn't buy a good tag team at this point. Smokin' Guns? Heavenly Bodies? Headshrinkers? Yikes. -With the knowledge that the Hulk Hogan era was finally over, Vince McMahon tries to replace him with...a clone of himself (in Lex Luger). Unforgivable. Can't just have another cut guy to wave the flag. -Fat guys (like Yokozuna) just don't make good headliners. They just can't move well enough to carry a match.

The Ugly: -Undertaker (always a good performance) vs. Giant Gonzalez (maybe the worst "wrestler" I've ever seen. The guy could hardly walk!)

So, overall I was basically entertained by SummerSlam 1993. Besides some clunkiness and awkwardness, there are some really fun moments. It's too bad that Vince McMahon was still so enamored by the roided-up guys and Hogan clones that he couldn't adapt as fast as happened later. However, with WCW still a little ways off from mounting a challenge, the WWF could pretty much put any level of talent on the air and get eyeballs.
