Example text

During 1993 they produced some quality matches, but you could argue Flair-Perfect was the best. It certainly dominates this show. Nothing else on the card is worth seeing, but let's face it; when the show is 40-minutes and half of that is the main event; the main event is the show. The show is good. 0 Hosted by Vince McMahon, Randy Savage and Rob Bartlett. Tatanka vs. Damien Demento Demento sure got a lot of airtime on Raw considering how un-over and ridiculous he was. Tatanka dominates him and bounces him around the ring to begin with, as Demento channels the spirit of The Ultimate Warrior by talking to his hands and looking up to the heavens.

He says the accident might have destroyed his face but his ears were still working and he could still hear everything that was going on, and he heard the doctors saying he didn't have much of a chance. He says when no-one else was there for him he reached out his hand looking for God and instead found Hulk Hogan. What a colossal letdown that must have been! That started pretty badly but once Beefcake started to open up, it became a really captivating promo and made me actually feel sympathy for the Brutus Beefcake character.

That tape got a rating of 4 out of 100 in Volume #2 of the Complete WWF Video Guide. I wouldn't bother. Vince tells us how the majority of his roster are pussies and scared of Giant Gonzalez, and have said that if he enters the battle royal later on in the show, they will bail. Well, what a bunch of tough guys! We cut to footage of Gonzalez destroying jobbers, including Louie Spicoli, as apparent justification for the roster being scared of him. Battle Royal I have actually covered this one before on the Invasion Of The Bodyslammers Coliseum release.
