Not surprised to see the Steiner Brothers go over the Headshrinkers considering it was their PPV debut. Nice to see the match between Michaels and Marty had a DQ finish as I wouldn't mind seeing you continue their feud, culminating in a match at WrestleMania. Love the Bam Bam Bigelow push! Glad to see Yoko go over Bossman. Hart retaining over Macho Man is fine in my opinion. Mr. Perfect winning the Rumble match is a shocker to me. I'm glad you didn't go with Flair, as the thought of Perfect/Bret is great.

Week 4: January 25th - 31st
WWF RAW 1/25/1993: (Manhattan, NY) 1. Randy Savage defeated Rick Martel in 8:18 following a top rope elbow drop. During the bout, taped promo by Razor Ramon aired. Ramon is upset over Randy Savage being given a title shot last night. Ramon felt that he had earned a title shot himself. Ramon believes that Savage’s time has passed him by and if Savage doesn’t accept that, Ramon will take him out once and for all. 2. Royal Rumble 1993 Report: Mean Gene goes over what happened last night, which saw Mr. Perfect win the Royal Rumble. A angry by Ric Flair is also shown as he isn’t livid over the fact that his former manager and friend tossed him over the top rope to earn a title shot at Wrestle Mania. “This isn’t over Perfect, not by a long shot.. WOOO!” 3. Jerry Lawler defeated Max Moon in 3:25 following a pile driver. 4. Tatanka defeated Glenn Ruth in 1:56 following a Samoan Drop. During the bout, a pre-tape promo by Doink the Clown was shown. Doink taunted Tatanka about burning his head dress and actually wears the burnt head dress while mocking Tatanka’s War Dance. 5. Lex Luger Interview: Vince McMahon interviewed Lex Luger in the ring to discuss Luger’s intentions in the WWF. Bobby Heenan was alongside Luger acting as his manager. Luger told McMahon that he has only one goal in mind and that is to win the WWF World Championship by the end of the year. Luger isn’t going to be like Randy Savage and ask for one, but rather he is going to earn his title shot. Luger claims that he is going to use his pure skill to just run through the WWF roster before taking out “everyone’s hero” Bret Hart. Luger asks Heenan how great the championship will look around his waist, which Heenan replies “the belt will be around the waist of the greatest athlete to ever step foot in a WWF ring.” Heenna finishes off the segment by proclaiming his man as the future WWF World Champion as Luger poses in the ring. 6.

Perfect talks about how great it felt to eliminate that “piece of trash” Ric Flair in order to earn a title shot at Wrestle Mania IX. Gene brings up how Perfect has never had a WWF World Championship shot on pay per view and only a few period but that was years ago. Perfect says that he is a different wrestler since a few years ago and he knows what it takes to beat Bret Hart since he has beaten Hart once before. Perfect finishes the promo off by saying that at Wrestle Mania IX, their “will be the perfect ending.” 3. Razor Ramon defeated Jim Powers in 1:34 following the Razors Edge. 4. The Headshrinkers defeated PJ Walker/Russ Greenberg in 1:06 when Fatu pinned Walker following a top rope splash. 5. Money Inc. Interview: Mean Gene conducts a interview with the WWF World Tag Team Champions. Gene brings up the Nasty Boys challenge for a tag team title shot. Jimmy Hart chimes in and rips on his former clients by saying that the Nasty Boys do not measure up to the greatest tag team in recent memory. Hart insults the Nasty Boys intelligence and puts over Money Inc’s overall brilliance when it comes to outsmarting opponents, which wouldn’t be difficult to do against the Nasty Boys. DiBiase ends up saying that the Nasty Boys will not get a title shot because they haven’t done anything to earn it. 6. Marty Jannetty defeated Repo Man in 4:49 following the Rocker Dropper.

Tunney announces the return of Saturday Night Main Event! Tunney says the return of SNME will take place on February 20th. Tunney brings up the Michaels/Jannetty match from the Royal Rumble and how WWF officials are not happy with the cheating ways of Michaels. Thus, Jannetty will be getting a rematch at SNME but this time it will be inside a steel cage where anything can happen! 3. WWF World Tag Team Champions Money Inc. defeated Joey Maggs/Mike Sharpe in 2:38 when IRS pinned Maggs following a lariat. 4. Big Bossman defeated Barry Horowitz in 3:19 following a side walk slam. 5. Bam-Bam Bigelow Interview: Mean Gene conducted a interview with Bam-Bam Bigelow. Gene brings up Duggan’s challenge for RAW.

The Undertaker defeated Reno Riggins in 0:58 following the tombstone pile driver.
Ramon/Savage feud could be good. I like how you're turning Flair/Perfect into a feud. Perfect has got to go over in the end. Interesting segment with Doink/Tatanka. Fine main event with Yoko getting the win. A Benoit try-out? Cool. No surprise to see Ramon get another win, this time beating Powers. Fine win for the Headshrinkers. Decent main event, not really surprised Jannetty got the win. Scott Taylor! <3 SNME coming back is great. Fine main event.
I love the layout its simplistic but it works well because its the old days, I love how its loads of results as well not just one, I also love the interviews how you didn't write "Ric Flair is backstage with Mean Gene. He is upset that Mr. Perfect won the rumble", lots of squashes but I'm sure that's what RAW was like back in the day, sorry about the amount of "love", Benoit? Me like very much esp booking against Hart someone who he has had previous experence with, Scott Taylor FTW, SNME allready sounds good esp with the announcment of the cage match, Bam Bam/Duggan sound be a good brawl, looking forward to what you do with Flair/Perfect so far so good like Jord said I hope Perfect goes over, good luck and keep this up.
Royal Rumble was a good read. Steiners going over was expected (as were all the non rumble matches). Hopefully we see a Steiners/Money Inc. feud down the line, maybe even in time for Mania. Michaels/Jannetty was fine, I expect we will se a rematch down the line. Bigelow/Duggan again was fine, expected Bigelow to win and hope to see a good push for him. Ditto for the Yoko match. Savage/Hart sounded sweet, liked the finish with Savage missing the elbow drop and Hart taking advantage. Nice debut for The Narcissist Lex Luger, hopefully a main event push is imminent for Luger. Don't know about Perfect winning the Rumble, I mean his main event time was getting behind him at this point and we'd already seen Hart/Perfect, plus it sort of came out of nowhere. Looking at the roster though (or more specifically your Rumble roster) there wasn't a whole lot of choice and I think some of the better choices in Yoko, Bam Bam and Luger weren't in the match. Anyway good write-up for all the matches and leaves me wanting more, I'm sure you'll be able to sway me with a good Luger/Hart feud.
Week 4 - Ramon/Savage feud should be fun. As should the Doink/Tatanka feud. You are going in some interesting and good directions for Wrestlemania and I look forward to it. Although ugh at Nasty Boys/Money Inc.
Anyway good job and I definitely look forward to more.
- Week 1 was enjoyable. I think you booked it well and showed promising things for this diary.
- Bam Bam's push is good, he deserved it. However, I seriously hope he doesn't fill Yoko's role as the top 'big man' in the WWF. Bam Bam would not draw or have the same impact as Yoko, for several reasons. I hope to see Yoko pushed soon.
- Here, Luger was given a character and a name and it would be more realistic to have him go by as simply 'The Narcissist'. To begin with, they tried to refrain from calling him 'Lex Luger'.
- Really, really, really like the prospect of Hart/Savage, and it's something I wish WWF did in reality. I know they teamed up a lot in early 92, which could have led to a good series of matches. But, meh..
- Boss Man/Yoko is an odd choice of match. Duggan/Yoko would be 100 times better because the obvious USA vs. foreigner angle can be exploited. The planned real-life Boss Man/Bam Bam match would have been better too (before being replaced by Tatanka). Their characters fit together better.
- The Royal Rumble match is REALLY lacking in star power. Perfect winning is poor booking. I think it's a panic choice to win it, because of other on-going feuds reducing available WrestleMania main eventers. The only viable options for the Rumble winner in 93 were Undertaker and Yoko, and Yoko wasn't even in the match. Hart/Taker at WrestleMania would have been absolutely insane, much better than Hart/Perfect, which has already been done on pay-per-view.
- Backlund just returned, so why release him? He has a lot more to offer. I hope you don't go ahead with signing all those guys yet, or you're in danger of flooding your roster with useless talent. Bomb, Gunns, Holly, Neidhart are not needed.
- I hope you don't put the IC belt on Jannetty at all. Michaels would lose so much momentum. Think the rematch should have been at WrestleMania, with Jannetty pushing a reluctant Michaels for a rematch in the build-up.
- Savage/Razor is great continuation from Survivor Series. I hope you book this for WrestleMania because I'd love to see it.
- There's no way Benoit would be hired in this time period. The guy had no character or charisma, which was needed here. He was a good wrestler, no doubt, but not right for WWF 93.
- I hope you phase out SNME. Doesn't really fit in with mid-90's WWF. Maybe a new TV special concept would be a great way to show off your booking talents?

Week 5: February 1st - 7th
WWF RAW 2/1/1993 (Manhattan, NY) 1. Bam-Bam Bigelow defeated Jim Duggan in 6:13 following a top rope flying head butt. 2. Ric Flair/Mr. Perfect Confrontation: Vince McMahon originally started off the segment with the 1993 Royal Rumble winner Mr. Perfect, where Perfect talked about achieving his goal of winning the most prestigious battle royal in all of wrestling. Perfect also bragged about eliminating his former friend, Ric Flair to win the Royal Rumble and how he loves to see Ric Flair jealous of Perfect. McMahon ends up bringing up WWF World Champion and how the last time Perfect wrestled Bret Hart, he lost. Perfect doesn’t want to make excuses but back at Summer Slam 1991, he was suffering from a major back injury. Perfect says he is 100% healthy and knows that he can beat Bret Hart. Before the interview can end, Ric Flair marches down to the ring and was clearly pissed off. Flair yanks the microphone away from McMahon and begins to scream that he is better than Mr. Perfect. Flair doesn’t care what happened at the Royal Rumble, Perfect has never pinned or made Flair submit. Flair knows that he is the uncrown Royal Rumble winner and demand that Perfect step up and be a man to try and beat THE MAN. Perfect laughs but is slapped by Flair who says this isn’t funny. Flair gets right in Perfect’s face and tells Perfect that he can’t beat him. Flair insults Perfect by saying that Perfect was his manager. Perfect played second fiddle to him. Perfect isn’t smiling anymore. McMahon tries to settle Perfect down as Perfect is clearly getting aggravated. Perfect grabs the microphone and says “You know what nature boy, you want me, you want my title shot at Wrestle Mania IX, you got it! On February 20th, at Saturday Night Main Event we are going to see who the better man truly is!” Flair and Perfect have a heated stare down to end the segment. 3. Crush defeated Barry Hardy in 2:34 with the Kona Vice. 4. Steiner Brothers defeated Russ Greenberg/PJ Walker in 1:04 when Scott pinned Walker. 5. Tatanka Interview: Vince McMahon conducted another interview this week, this time with Tatanka. Tatanka’s focus is on the evil clown Doink. Tatanka has never been disrespected so much by one person. Tatanka assures the fans that Doink will regret burning his head dress. 6. Randy Savage defeated Skinner in 3:58 following a top rope elbow drop. After the match, Randy Savage is attacked by Razor Ramon, who came through the crowd. Ramon ended up driving Savage down on the floor with a Razors Edge to close out the show.

WWF Superstars 2/6/1993 1. Marty Jannetty defeated Terry Taylor in 7:38 following the Rocker Dropper. 2. Razor Ramon Interview: Mean Gene conducted the interview with Ramon, who viciously attacked Randy Savage on RAW. Ramon tells Gene that he isn’t going to sit by and allow a washed up, has been like Randy Savage continue to keep a spot that belongs to Razor Ramon. Ramon would challenge Savage to a match but doesn’t believe Savage will be healthy enough to compete considering of the recent unfortunate injury he suffered, which Ramon couldn’t help but laugh at. Gene tells Ramon that Savage will be coming after him. Ramon finishes the segment off by telling the Macho Man to bring it on. Ramon will be more than ready for him. 3. Kamala defeated Duane Gill in 1:04 following a big splash. 4. Beverly Brothers defeated Scott Taylor/Jim Powers in 3:12 when Beau pinned Taylor. 5. Nasty Boys Interview: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with the Nasty Boys. Knobbs says that next weeks RAW they have been given a non-title match with Money Inc., which if they win they will finally get a tag title match. Saggs says that on Monday, Money Inc. are going to be visiting Pity City and their belts will be going to Nastyville with them sooner rather than later! 6. Mr. Perfect defeated Barry Horowitz in 2:14 following the Perfect Plex. WWF Wrestling Challenge 2/7/1993 1. Big Bossman defeated Papa Shango in 5:04 following a side walk slam. 2. Shawn Michaels Interview: Vince McMahon interview the WWF Intercontinental Champion who is not happy about having to wrestle Marty Jannetty on February 20th inside a steel cage. Michaels doesn’t want his face to get sliced up and bruised. Michaels knows that Jannetty doesn’t care about that because Jannetty was born with a face only his mother could love! McMahon asks if Michaels is afraid of Jannetty inside a cage? Michaels assures McMahon that he isn’t. Michaels has beaten Jannetty before and on February 20th he will do it again and once and for all show the world that Shawn Michaels is better than Marty Jannetty! 3. Owen Hart defeated Louie Spicolli in 2:12 following a missile dropkick. 4. Razor Ramon defeated Mike Sharpe in 1:35 following the Razors Edge. 5. Bret Hart Interview: Mean Gene interviewed the WWF World Champion Bret Hart. Gene asks Hart who he would rather wrestle at Wrestle Mania IX, Mr. Perfect or Ric Flair. Hart says he would like to wrestle Mr. Perfect considering Perfect actually won the match to earn a title shot while Flair is just crying over not being as good as Perfect. However, Hart doesn’t make the rules and tells Gene that he will beat either Perfect or Flair at Wrestle Mania IX. Hart is a fighting champion and will not back down from anyone. Because, Hart is the “best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be!” 6. Yokozuna defeated Joey Maggs/Mike Bell in a handicap match in 1:06 following a double Banzai Drop.

The Undertaker defeated Terry Taylor 6. WWF Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels defeated Jim Duggan to retain the title 7. Mr. Perfect defeated Ric Flair 8. WWF World Champion Bret Hart defeated Razor Ramon to retain the title
WWF Week 4: Live Events...Hoping that Chris Benoit doesn't score a tryout so easily in the World Wrestling Federation. Him debuting in Madison Square Garden here (1/29)...wouldn't that be a nerve-wrecking tryout for Benoit? Especially opening contest. The majority of that card sounded good, would've been a crammed ten matches though. Can imagine Razor Ramon and Randy Savage may or will feud into WrestleMania IX now. 1/30 show had some decent stuff on it, The Undertaker and Jerry Lawler & Mr Perfect and Ric Flair namely. Hoping to see Crush go far. Didn't list a date for the Toronto show, was definitely stronger than the 1/30 show.
WWF Week 4: Television...Randy Savage and Rick Martel is a solid opening bout, glad to see Martel have the opportunity at last on this wide a level. Razor Ramon angry and jealous of Savage's WWF Championship opportunity at the Royal Rumble is the best idea. Good to see Jerry Lawler getting a head start, as well. Doink the Clown's insert was amusing. Hope that Lex Luger's in ring debut is on RAW. It will be ideal, if these interviews keep occuring, and he debuts here. Yokozuna beating Kamikaze Kid is fine, wonder what will become of Kamikaze in say, a few months. On Superstars of Wrestling, Jim Duggan preparing a rematch with Bam Bam Bigelow for Monday Night RAW could be pretty fun. Mr Perfect's interview was nice, but Perfect is well past the WWF Championship unfortunately. And that'd be a weak WrestleMania main event, heck, Yokozuna vs Bret Hart beats that. Hopefully you change it all up... On Wrestling Challenge, Saturday Night's Main Evented being announced is great, another level to balance up the big atmosphere for Monday Night RAW as well as building other shows i.e. pay-per-view. Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty in the steel cage, I hope that this means this will be the final encounter, because seeing these two take it out on one another is getting pretty repetitive by this point. They only started feuding earlier this month! Odd that we didn't hear from WWF Champion, Bret Hart this week.
WWF Week 5: Live Events...European tour, joyous. Had some decent stuff, Mr Perfect and Ric Flair alone would have done the job, and maybe Bret Hart and Bam Bam Bigelow. This Undertaker and Jerry Lawler feud could be the interesting part headed into WrestleMania IX, looking forward to that. Bret Hart and Razor Ramon finally meeting for the WWF Championship in the main event of 2/6 and 2/7 was good to see.
WWF Week 5: Television...Bam Bam Bigelow beating Jim Duggan is a hot ticket opener to RAW. Looking forward to Ric Flair and Mr Perfect at Saturday Night's Main Event, for the WWF Championship opportunity at WrestleMania IX? I do hope. Hope Flair wins. Might be too much power for SNME's card though. We already have the uppercard WWF Intercontinental Championship steel cage match on said show. Was expecting Tatanka to call Doink the Clown out to RAW next week, really. Razor Ramon really needs to actually compete, rather than attack Savage. Allow Savage some momentum, he beats getting attacked by Ramon. It's going nowhere. On Superstars of Wrestling, Marty Jannetty and Terry Taylor had a long match, surprising to see Terry Taylor here, swear he was in WCW at this point (I thought). Razor Ramon's interview was just another forward for the situation. Randy Savage injured? Then in say a month, I hope Ramon fights and gets attacked by Savage. Glad Kamala actually won a match for once, even if a squash. The Nasty Boys getting the WWF Tag Team Championship opportunity is well, I see Money Inc still leaving champs though. On Wrestling Challenge, Big Bossman beating Papa Shango (note: sidewalk slam = Bossman Slam at this point) is good, a sign that Shango is on his way out. Shawn Michaels' promo was good, just to promote the match with Marty Jannetty at Saturday Night's Main Event. Wonder where Owen Hart's character is headed. Bret Hart's promo was good, classic WWF Champion face move to note Mr Perfect because he played it fair. A more eventful week.

Week 6: February 8th - 14th

As a result, the Nasty Boys will not be given a tag title shot for as long as Money Inc. are the champions. 2. Marty Jannetty Interview: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with Marty Jannetty. McMahon tells Jannetty that he knows he had Michaels on the ropes at the Royal Rumble, until Michaels cowardly got himself disqualified. McMahon fully expects Jannetty to get his justice on February 20th. Jannetty talks about a steel cage and how he will finally have Michaels trapped inside a structure where Michaels can not run away and get himself counted out or grab an object to disqualify himself. Jannetty warns Michaels that he is in store for the worst beating of his life. Jannetty will show the world that he is better than Shawn Michaels and he always will be! 3. The Undertaker defeated Duane Gill in 1:00 following the tombstone pile driver. 4. Big Bossman defeated Reno Riggins in 1:46 following a side walk slam. 5. Yokozuna/Mr. Fuji/Jim Duggan Confrontation: Mean Gene conducted an in-ring interview with Yokozuna and Mr. Fuji. Gene mentions that Yokozuna has been destroying his competition during his WWF career, so far. Fuji tells Gene that no man can stop his man, Yokozuna. Fuji doest care how loud and hard people cheer for their heroes, Yokozuna will crush their hopes and dreams. Fuji proclaims that Japanese wrestlers are better than “the weak and worthless American wrestlers.” At that point, Jim Duggan made his way down to the ring with the American flag. Duggan kept it simple telling Fuji and Yoko to stop talking and fight. Before their was any physical encounter, several referees and officials ran down to the ring to stop anything from happening! 6. Razor Ramon defeated Max Moon in 1:55 following the Razors Edge. WWF House Show 2/10/1993 (Dortmund, Germany, 5,500) 1. Owen Hart defeated Rick Martel 2.

WWF Superstars 2/13/1993 1. Owen Hart defeated Blake Beverly in 5:04 following a top rope missile dropkick. 2. Randy Savage Interview: Mean Gene conducted a interview with Randy Savage at Savage’s house. Gene mentions Savage’s back injury thanks to Razor Ramon, which just at the mention of Ramon’s name, pisses Savage off. Savage cuts Gene off and says that Ramon has achieved his goal of making a name for himself. However, according to Savage, as a result of Ramon targeting Savage Ramon will have to watch his own back in fear. Savage tells Gene and the fans that he will be back very soon and when the Macho Man comes back, he is going to return better than ever and break Ramon in half! 3. Crush defeated Duane Gill in 1:33 with the Kona Vice 4. Doink the Clown defeated PJ Walker in 2:03 following the Whoopee Cushion. 5. Ric Flair Interview: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with Ric Flair. McMahon asked Flair why Flair can’t accept that Mr. Perfect is better than him. Flair warns McMahon about the way he talks. Flair tells McMahon that without him, Perfect wouldn’t be in the WWF. Flair puts himself over a two time WWF World Champion and has been in this business for far longer than Perfect. Flair doesn’t believe being tossed over a top rope by Perfect qualifies Perfect as being better than him. Flair says that Perfect knows deep down inside that Perfect can not pin or make Flair submit. Flair tells McMahon that on February 20th at Saturday Night Main Event, Ric Flair will defeat Mr. Perfect and beat WWF World Champion Bret Hart to recapture his championship! 6. WWF World Champion Bret Hart defeated Papa Shango in 6:57 in a non-title match with the Sharpshooter. WWF Wrestling Challenge 2/14/1993 1. Yokozuna defeated Scott Taylor in 0:35 following the Banzai Drop. 2. Lex Luger/Bobby Heenan Interview: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with the Narcissist, Lex Luger and his manager Bobby Heenan. Heenan has a big announcement for WWF fans. Heenan announces that the world will be given the opportunity to see his man, Lex Luger, in action on RAW. Heenan tells McMahon that Luger’s quest to the top begins tomorrow night. Luger briefly chimes in and says that he will be the king of the WWF in no time. Luger poses for the fans while Heenan stands proud next to Luger. 3. Tatanka defeated Barry Hardy in 2:14 following a Samoan Drop. 4. The Undertaker defeated Barry Horowitz in 0:57 following a tombstone pile driver. 5. Steiner Brothers Interview: Mean Gene conducted a interview with the Steiner Brothers. The Steiner Brothers main focus is one thing and that is the WWF World Tag Team Championships. Scott Steiner mentions that since the Nasty Boys couldn’t get the job done on RAW, Money Inc. do not have any competition. Scott knows that issuing a challenge to the champions will just be rejected, so what the Steiner’s are instead going to do is beat every tag team in the WWF, literally, and earn their shot at the WWF World Tag Team Championships! 6. Jerry Lawler defeated Glenn Ruth in 2:05 following a pile driver.
Thank God the Nasty Boys won't get another shot at the tag titles aslong as Money, Inc. are champions. However, I can see there being some sort of loophole due to the way the match ending. Love that Jannetty/Michaels will be held inside a Steel Cage. Like the battle of USA/Japan between Yoko and Duggan. Win for Owen is great. I love the Flair/Perfect feud. A Luger push is great stuff. This is going great, Bob.
WWF Week 6: Live Events...Pretty plain house show on 2/8, it had some eventful bouts though. Yokozuna and Crush would have been enjoyable, as well as Rick Martel and Owen Hart. Still intrigued by this Jerry Lawler and The Undertaker picture. So-so main event with Ric Flair and Mr Perfect paired with brawlers Bam Bam Bigelow and Big Bossman (lots of B-sounds). On 2/10, Jim Duggan running the patriot gimmick in Germany whilst challenging for the WWF Intercontinental Championship? Interesting and edgy call. Hopefully Papa Shango fades out soon. More Razor Ramon opportunity against Bret Hart is nice, he won't be ready for the WWF Championship for a fair bit yet though. The 2/13 show sounded most interesting, Mr Perfect and Razor Ramon, Bam Bam Bigelow and Crush & Bret Hart and the Steiner Brothers with Ric Flair and Money Inc all would have been fantastic. Quite a good thing going on the live event circuit.
WWF Week 6: Television...Money Inc beating the Nasty Boys is a fine non-title match, glad that this is it for Jerry Saggs and Brian Knobbs for a WWF Tag Team Championship opportunity, liking the slyness of Money Inc as champions too. Could see this as a recurring theme with Ted Dibiase and Irwin R. Schyster. Marty Jannetty's interview nicely laid out the match with Shawn Michaels in a steel cage. Yokozuna and Jim Duggan's confrontation was quite intense, glad that it was featured here on RAW. The bright young days of the show. Like Owen Hart making it to television, beating Blake Beverly in a competitive opening bout on Superstars of Wrestling. Randy Savage's promo from his house was a nice touch, the bck injury and everything. Long hype for Razor Ramon, should be good to see this pull out. Ric Flair's interview was good, just to propell his feud with Mr Perfect. Bret Hart beating Papa Shango...hopefully Shango's on his way out as this persona. Doesn't do a good reputation for the WWF Champion. Wrestlign Challenge, pretty sure Yokozuna's beaten Scott Taylor a good few times now. Lex Luger's interview did its' job. A nice slow build there. The Steiner Brothers was just a beginner preparation for them into the WWF Tag Team Championship picture. Television is running smoothly, nothing too much occuring, just building The Main Event.
Week 6, glad the Nasty Boys are out of the tag picture (hopefully). The Yoko/Duggan segment was well written and sounded intense. It's a good route to go with as well to build up Yoko with the USA/Japan rivalry. Liked the interview segment with Savage, nice touch to add it at his house. The Flair/Perfect rivalry is going along well. I like the slow build you are doing for Luger and if you get that far I could see that last line being foreshadowing to Luger becoming king of the ring, which I'm all for a Luger push. Glad your setting up a Money Inc./Steiner Brothers feud over the tag gold which should be good.
The build up has been going great and can't wait for more on the road to Wrestlemania, good job.

Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan welcome everyone to Saturday Night Main Event! Monsoon puts over the big night ahead of us, which will see a steel cage match between former friends WWF Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty. Heenan acts as if he is scared for Shawn Michael’s well being, but is actually more concerned for his good looks being ruined by a jealous former friend in Jannetty. Monsoon also hypes up the main event which will see Mr. Perfect putting up his number one contenders spot against Ric Flair! Heenan, as usual, believes that Ric Flair will come out on top while monsoon is disgusted by Heenan statements. The cage behind them has been fully set up and thus the show is ready to start!

(18:26, ***¼) After the match, Shawn Michaels crawls up the aisle way with a smile on his face while officials check on Jannetty in the ring.
Backstage, Mean Gene is standing with Tatanka. Gene talks about Tatanka’s upcoming match against Doink. Tatanka tells Gene that tonight Doink will pay the consequences for disrespecting his heritage and that the only thing people will be laughing at is the beating Doink is going to be suffering tonight! Second Contest: the Undertaker defeated Skinner: Skinner tried to get the upper hand by punching Taker in the corner but didn’t have any real affect. Taker quickly counters and hammers away on Skinner in the corner. Taker sends Skinner into the ropes and nails Skinner with a big boot followed by a side slam. Taker wrenches on Skinner’s arm before walking the top rope and jumping down across Skinner’s arm. Skinner stumbles to his feet only to be met with a choke slam and soon thereafter a tombstone pile driver! Taker covers and wins the match. (3:03, *) After the bout, as the lights go off during Undertaker’s celebration, Bam-Bam Bigelow runs down to the ring and attacks Paul Bearer, grabbing the urn in the process. Undertaker tries to attack Bigelow but misses a right hand and Bigelow nails Taker with the urn! Bigelow beats Undertaker down several times with the urn before heading to the top rope and ramming the urn down into Undertaker’s face! Officials run down to pull Bigelow out of the ring, who still has possession of the urn!
Backstage, Mean Gene is standing with Doink the Clown, who is wearing Tatanka’s burned head dress and laughing while mocking Tatanka. Doink believes that his burning of the head dress has made it look better than it was before. Gene points out that it isn’t intended to be a fashion statement. Doink shrugs off that comment and says that while he may be continually be pranking wrestlers, he can and will beat Tatanka tonight. Doink laughs and wears the head dress while taunting Tatanka again as Gene is left standing confused by Doink’s statements and actions.

A video hyping up the main event between Mr. Perfect and Ric Flair is aired.

Crush challenges Luger to a match to prove to the WWF fans and officials that Luger is all talk and not a worthy wrestler for the WWF! 6.

-A great way to kick off the show. Jannetty came close but since HBK is the future main eventer, he should have won this. Good call. -The Undertaker beating Skinner was the right call too. -Tatanka over Doink the Clown was predicted. Glad he got his head dress back. -A great match between Flair and Perfect as well. Flair winning was good either way. -Ric Flair/Bret Hart is going to be awesome. -Good show.
No shock to see Michaels go over Jannetty in the opener. Undertaker going over Skinner was no surprise either, but I loved Bigelow's attack afterwards. The Bigelow/Undertaker feud is going great and I wouldn't mind seeing Bigelow go over in the end and move onto the WWF Champion as it would be something different. Bigelow retaining the urn is interesting. Tatanka beating Doink was fine. I liked how Tatanka wore his headdress (albeit burnt) after the match. Really, really surprised to see Perfect lost his WWF Championship shot to Flair. Perfect/Bret and Flair/Bret would both have been great matches, though.

-Shawn Michaels vs. Marty Jannetty was awesome. Knew Michaels would go over. -Can't wait to see what you're going to do with the Bigelow/Undertaker feud -I would have made Doink win the match, but still, great read. -Ric Flair vs. Bret Hart at Wrestlemania IX would be awesome. A 3 Way including Mr. Perfect would be even more awesome though.
WWF Week 7: Live Events...Quite appropriate show on 2/17, very odd to see Jerry Lawler drop back to opening match status, though, I'm sure he and Koko B. Ware would have been a nice opener. I feel like Owen Hart and Rick Martel still should have opened the card though. Interesting tag team concept with Yokozuna and Lex Luger & Crush and Jim Duggan though. The potential Lex Luger and Crush feud as hinted on the 2/19 show could be quite a good start for Luger, though. As long as Crush gets something out of it. The 2/21 show was nothing new.
WWF Week 7: Television...Bret Hart's promo on RAW showed how he was in the middle of everything currently. Not so much for Hart to do really, would have been nice to see him compete here on RAW, being that he isn't expected to do a thing at Saturday Night's Main Event this weekend. Terry Taylor returning to television here was great, a nice match between Jim Duggan and Taylor, but really a stepping stone to show us Duggan setting up to face Yokozuna. Razor Ramon's promo was basic, just more promotion against Randy Savage. I was intrigued by Tatanka and Doink the Clown being added to SNME by Jack Tunney on Superstars of Wrestling. Odd decision, hopefully gets that feud out of the way, though. On Wrestling Challenge, liked seeing Louie Spicolli on the show. Owen Hart slowly getting on television with back and forth matches with even Brooklyn Brawler is a nice touch. Crush getting the start is great, and as expected we have Lex Luger's first feud, should progress both men nicely.
WWF Saturday Night's Main Event: Saturday 20th February 1993...Wish this show was posted individually, really, even though it is still on television. It would have looked neater. Loved the touch of the dark matches, nice way to squeeze in Rick Martel and Owen Hart's match, too. As well as Razor Ramon getting a WWF Championship opportunity. Hot opening contest as expected, but predicted seeing Shawn Michaels retain the WWF Intercontinental Championship in this steel cage match environment. Enjoyable opening contest, I dunno, just really hope the Shawn/Marty feud leads somewhere original, if it does continue. It's getting really repetitive now. The Undertaker doing little, easy win against Skinner. Was interested by the Bam Bam Bigelow attack, was quite interesting indeed. I am interested by Doink the Clown with the burnt headdress, definitely comical in this era. Tatanka with the win was for the better. Glad to see Ric Flair with the victory and now going to face Bret Hart at WrestleMania IX. But also still making Mr Perfect look credible. Got to wonder what Perfect will do now. A good show, some nice yet obvious progression for us nearing on WrestleMania.
Nothing much to say on Raw, Superstars and such. All of the matches are just jobs, but that's what they did back then, so props there. I'll give a full reply to what you really worked hard on, The Main Event.
-Hmm, I'm sure Razor/Hart could have been good enough to make it on the show -Not sure about the cage match opening, but I guess Flair/Perfect is the better main event -The right man who the match though. -Undertaker winning is the right way to go. -Guessing you are setting up Bam Bam/Taker at Mania after Bam Bam stole the urn. That would be a better match then Taker/GG -Tatanka winning is good, and taking back his head dress. Didn't Doink steal it in real life too? -Wow, shocked Flair won the match. Flair/Hart will be good, but I have a feeling that it might be a triple threat match for the title at Mania, which would be amazing! -Great show with some great build to Mania.
SNME was a great show. Glad you went with the realistic route and had Michaels/Jannetty up first. Michaels was always gonna win this one. Hopefully this ends the feud and Michaels moves on to a bigger opponent than Jannetty. Love the prospect of Bam Bam vs. Undertaker. Very original feud and something I'd loved to have seen. As someone else said, a lot better than Giant Gonzalez. So glad you had Flair go over. Though I dislike Flair in the WWF at this point, especially in the main event of WrestleMania, he is much better opponent for Bret than Perfect. It's good continuation from Bret's title win over Flair too. DON'T GO WITH A TRIPLE THREAT FOR THE BELT. I do wonder where Perfect will go from here. I'd like to see him against Luger, giving both men a solid push from there.

Tunney mentions that the Steiner’s will have to defeat four tag teams within the next five weeks to earn a title shot. Tunney gives the Steiner’s a contract that notes the Steiner’s will have to wrestle the following tag teams: the Headshrinkers, Beverly Brothers, Natural Disasters, and the Nasty Boys.

Shawn Michaels/Tatanka Confrontation: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with the WWF Intercontinental Champion, who is extremely happy about finally getting Marty Jannetty off his back. Michaels gloats about telling McMahon and everyone else that he was the guy who carried Jannetty for the several years they were partners. Now, Michaels has proven that he is the real deal and that Jannetty is just another bum in the WWF. Michaels notes how someone he had known for several years couldn’t beat him. A guy who knew so much about him, just couldn’t get the job done. Michaels believes that he can not be beaten. Michaels thinks he is the greatest WWF wrestler, ever. Tatanka makes his way out and brings up the unbeatable statement Michaels said. Tatanka tells Michaels that he hasn’t been beaten since he has come to the WWF over a year ago. Tatanka proceeds to challenge Michaels to a match, which Michaels isn’t in favor of. Michaels pretends to back off from Tatanka, but once Tatanka turns his back Michaels nails Tatanka over the back with the championship! Michaels stomps away on Tatanka before grabbing the microphone and tells Tatanka that Shawn Michaels doesn’t do what he is told and that Tatanka hasn’t proven himself enough for him to get a title shot!

Bam-Bam Bigelow Interview: Mean Gene conducted a interview with Bigelow, who has possession of the Undertaker’s urn. Gene asks why Bigelow attacked the Undertaker at Saturday Night’s Main Event last week, and asks Bigelow if he knows what he has gotten himself into. Bigelow attacked the Undertaker because he is sick of the Undertaker being declared a dominate force when he hasn’t fought Bam-Bam Bigelow. Bigelow puts himself over a legitimate badass and believes he is the one man that the Undertaker can not manhandle like the Undertaker does on a regular basis to other “chumps”, as Bigelow put it. When asked why he stole the urn, Bigelow figured that he would fight Undertaker on fair terms and get rid of the “super natural powers” that the urn provides for the Undertaker. Bigelow believes that without the urn, the Undertaker is nothing. As soon as Bigelow says that, the lights go out and when they come back on the Undertaker is standing in the ring with Paul Bearer standing at ringside.

The Narcissist Lex Luger and Bobby Heenan ended up coming into the room and decided it was a good time to provoke Perfect. Heenan yelled at Perfect saying “I knew you weren’t good enough.

Interview: Mean Gene conducted a interview with the WWF World Tag Team Champions regarding the mission of the Steiner Brothers, who recently signed a “contract” where they would have to defeat all the other tag teams before getting a shot at Money Inc. DiBiase tells Gene that the odds of the Steiner Brothers winning all the necessary matches are highly unlikely. DiBiase believes that the Steiner Brothers do not have the smarts, nor the skill to get a title shot. However, shall the Steiner Brother manage to earn a title shot, Money Inc. will prevail because they are simply better than the Steiner Brothers. IRS chimes in and says that the Steiner Brothers would be a disgrace to the tag team championships since they are morons considering they went to Michigan University. IRS insults the Steiner’s by saying they were the “M” on their jackets to remind them what school they went to. DiBiase ends the interview by proclaiming that Money Inc. will remain the WWF World Tag Team Champions until they decide to retire. 3. Natural Disasters defeated Tony Williams/Carl Daniels in 1:14 when Earthquake pinned Williams following a splash. 4. Kamala defeated Joey Maggs in 1:23 following a big splash. 5. Bret Hart Interview: Vince McMahon conducted a interview with the WWF World Champion. McMahon hypes up Hart’s upcoming bout at Wrestle Mania against the new number one contender and former WWF World Champion, Ric Flair. Hart tells McMahon that while he respects Flair as a wrestler, he doesn’t respect the way Flair went about gaining the number one contenders spot. Hart was looking forward to competing against a guy he considers a friend, now (Mr. Perfect), but now will be in the ring against a man he has had several heated battles with. McMahon asks if Hart can beat Flair, on a big stage like Wrestle Mania. Hart laughs at that kind of question telling McMahon that any match with Flair is a “big match” and made Flair submit to win the WWF World Championship in the first place. Hart reminds McMahon that all the pressure is on Ric Flair to prove to Bret Hart that he is the man. Hart says that until Flair proves that, Hart is the man, and is the best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be! 6. Repo Man defeated Max Moon in 5:36 with a inside cradle using the ropes for leverage. [/font]
