Mr. Perfect vs Papa Shango- It's a Shango match so don't expect a mat classic. Perfect was great in the selling department to make the voodoo man look like a threat. Perfect with his signature Perfect Plex for the win at about 8 minutes with only 5 shown due to a commercial. Overall nothing special but watchable.
Next up we have a video promo on the 1st inductee in the WWF HOF and it's none other than Andre the Giant. The HOF started in 93 so they made the right choice with this inductee.
Money Inc. Vs Jeff Armstrong/ Scott Rich- Just a squash match to hype up their title defense against The Mega Maniacs at WM IX. Side note: this match was taped at RAW in the Manhattan Center.
Mean Gene next up with the WrestleMania IX Report. Don't wait till the 11th hour order now!! Love these reports.
Ico-Pro and WWF Hasbro ads. Memories.
Owen Hart vs. Bobby Young- Squash here with Owen winning with a crossbody. Giant Gonzales comes in right after for a brief promo hyping up his match with Taker at WM IX.That body suit is still horrible 25 years later.
We then get a retort from the man from the dark side The Undertaker and Paul Bearer!! I miss these old studio promos.
Tatanka vs Reno Riggins- Another squash taped at Raw. Tatanka with the Samoan drop for the win.
Hard Rock Cafe charity promo
Doink Vs Larry Sampson- The clown with the stump puller for the easy win.
We end the episode with a Bret Hart tribute video to the tune of Aretha Franklin's ''Respect''
Overall if you are a fan of this era give this show a look as it hypes up Mania well. The matches? well that's another story.
Feedback is welcomed/appreciated. I plan to do more of these reviews in the future. Thanks for reading!!
