(02.22.93)

Live from New York City, NY

Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Rob Bartlett & Randy Savage

Bam Bam Bigelow Vs Scott Taylor

Taylor is Scotty 2 Hotty. Bam Bam wins with 3 consecutive headbutts from the top. Bam Bam made this squash match kinda fun with all the cool moves he did. Bam Bam is one of the best big guys of all time.

3/4*

We get a pre-recorded interview with Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon. Hogan says the future of Hulkamania is very bright. The Hulkamanics aren't just his friends, they're his heroes, because they set positive examples. When you make it to the top, people wanna dig into your past, and people found out Hogan was human. He says he's made mistakes on a personal level and he hasn't always made the right business decisions (No s****, sherlock) He says the Hulkamaniacs that have stuck with him will be rewarded. He says he's experiencing media terrorism. He says the Hulkamanics don't dwell on the negatives. He now has 5 commandments. 1. Training 2. Saying your prayers 3. Taking your vitamins. 4. Believe in yourself. 5. Believe in Hulk Hogan.

Thoughts: Hogan was talking about the steroid scandal that involved him. This was a good sit-down interview for the most part, though. Hogan actually sounded like a human being for once.

Shawn Michaels & The Beverly Brothers Vs Tatanka & The Nasty Boys

Tatanka pins Shawn after countering a teardrop suplex with a sunset flip to get the win for his team. This was a surprisingly fun little tag team match. The Nasty Boys have a lot of time in the ring didn't detract from the match all that much. Tatanka beating Shawn twice was a big deal at the time.

**3/4

Crush Vs Terry Taylor

Crush wins by submission. This was nothing more than squash to make Crush look strong in his feud against Doink.

3/4*

Hulk Hogan comes out for an interview with Vince. Hogan gloats about the big pop he receives. He says he was watching at home last week in his beach house in Venice Beach, CA. He was horrified when Brutus Beefcake got his face smashed with the briefcase of I.R.S. Hogan says Beefcake is fine and just has a broken nose. Hogan thanks god and Jimmy Hart for ensuring Beefcake's safety. Hogan's back in the WWF, little dudes. His first order of business is to right the wrongs of Money INC. Hogan brings out Brutus Beefcake. Beefcake thought it was over for him after he got hit with the briefcase, but it turns out nothing can shatter the titanium steel. Beefcake thanks god and Jimmy Hart as well for his safety. Hogan says he plans on seizing Money INC's assets, slowly but surely. Hogan brings out his new manager, Jimmy Hart, who is wearing a Hulk Hogan jacket. Jimmy says this is the greatest day of his life because he's always dreamed of managing Hulk Hogan. He says he's always idolized Hulk Hogan. (Oh? Is that why you had Earthquake almost end his career?) Jimmy says Hogan and Beefcake could be the greatest tag team of all time. (gag) Jimmy says he's gonna take his vitamins and that Money INC better start saying their prayers. Whatcha gonna do, when The Mega Maniacs run wild on you, brother? (Find something else to watch)

Thoughts: My obvious dislike of Hogan aside, the man sure knows how to captivate a crowd. His promo was nothing terribly different from what you're used to hearing from him. Jimmy Hart is a terrible face and whoever came up with the idea should be taken out back and shot. Actually, he's terrible period.

The Undertaker (W/Paul Bearer) Vs Skinner

The match has to stop because Raw is running out of air time. Vince says we'll get to see the conclusion the following week. Oh, yay!

6.5/10 (Entertaining)
