THE WWF NEW GENERATION ERA PROJECT: SUPERSTARS REVIEW 08/21/1993

Before the intro Jerry Lawler and a man in a pink Cadillac who could have been Elvis Presley told Bret he was was going to beat him up something good.

"I said, "I don't care how old you are, my hunka burnin' love is flarin'"
MARTY JANNETTY vs. BARRY HOROWITZ
This was nice and quick, with Horowitz getting outsmarted at every turn. Apparently Jannetty is booked to wrestle Ludvig Borga at SummerSlam, so they had an inset promo of Borga telling Marty that he's going to bring him "pain and pain and pain and it ain't going to go away." He looked so goofy saying it too. I wish I could just clip it out and post it for you, but that's more effort than I'm willing to give. Jannetty won with the top rope fist drop after hitting a super kick. EVERYONE is doing super kicks now.

THE QUEBECERS vs.DAN DUBIEL & SCOTT DESPRES
Hell, between Well Dunn and The Heavenly Bodies making their debut and all the other tag teams that have gotten time, I forgot about the Quebeccers. Jacques started this off by hitting a package piledriver on Jabroni #1 and then back body dropping Pierre on top of him. After the nasty Boston Crab Top Rope Legdrop Combo, Savage said "I officially retire from wrestling." You'd think it would be over but Jabroni #2 broke up the pin. Macho replied, "I'd be mad at my partner if he broke up that pin." Pierre was pretty upset and through Jabroni #1 to #2 and told him to get his ass in the ring. #2 didn't last long, and got murdered by a disgusting front flip off the top rope. These two may care less about their opponents than the Steiners. Awesome squash if you like watching Jabroni's get obliterated.

ADAM BOMB vs. MIKE MORALDO
Poor Mike Moraldo got tossed over the top rope, did a flip and cracked his back across the apron. It looked brutal and got a pretty concerned reaction from Vince. Kudos to him because he got back in the ring and took a another nasty bump off a flying clothesline where he rolled over on his neck.  One power bomb later and this one was over.

RAPPING RANDY & MEN ON A MISSION RAP ABOUT LEX LUGER
Just watch it.



MR. HUGHES vs. MIKE BUCCI
Another jobber who'd later become a famous ECW alumni. Bucci didn't get to do much and the announcers were more occupied talking about Jerry Lawler having to leave the booth to check on his Cadillac. This of course sets him up to do something ridiculous during Bret's interview segment NEXT! Bucci lost, by the way. I'm sure you were wondering. Thankfully for him he didn't experience anything like the last couple of jobbers.

BRET HART IN THE SUMMERSLAM
You know what I love about Bret Hart? A lot of things. But during all of his promos for Jerry Lawler he always says, "In the SummerSlam." As in, "Lawler, when I get a hold of you in the SummerSlam." I have no idea why he says it like that but he does. Lawler actually didn't come out during this, I guess he left so he wouldn't have to listen to the promo.

He can act like nothing's wrong, but we all know better.
BAM BAM BIGELOW vs. BOBBY WHO
Bobby Who looks like he might have a Hitler stache, but there's no hair in the middle. It's like two mini- Hitler staches. I can't even focus on the rest of the match. Bigelow made short work of him with the flying headbutt. That's about it.

MEN ON A MISSION vs. IRON MIKE SHARPE & JEFF LEAVITT
Mike Sharpe started off pushing Mo around forcing him to make a tag. Mabel got in and popped Sharpe a good one with that crazy wheel kick he does. Sharpe got the hell out of there, but poor Jeff wasn't such a hot back up plan. He got Double Choke Slammed and then squashed by Mabel's big splash. Crowd is really into the Men on a Mission. It helps that Oscar interacts with them and gets them excited.

OVERALL SHOW: 
Some brutal squashes, so it's memorable in that respect. It also featured a decent Bret Hart promo and an even better one from Macho Man hyping his tag match at Nasau Colliseum.
