WWF New Generation Era Project: RAW REVIEW 09.20.1993

SCOTT STEINER vs. PIERRE


Scott did a good job of calling back to their match last week, which was under Quebec Province Rules. He goes up top and hits a clothesline, tosses Pierre over the top, and follows it up with a piledriver, all just because he has the freedom to do so - last week such actions would have resulted in a DQ. Also to prove how badass he is, Scott does a super impressive overhead belly-to-belly suplex from the middle rope. Pierre's just a big dude, that tossing him around always looks amazing. Scotty was also really good at getting beat up. And during his chance to get back into the match he didn't start throwing Pierre, he went for backslides and inside cradles. There's a lot of drama that comes with Scott Steiner, destroyer of wimpies, looking desperate to win. Steiner eventually made a comeback and won with the Frankensteiner, but the match did a lot to make Pierre in particular look like one tough opponent.


BAM BAM BIGELOW vs. LEVERNE MCGILL
Sometimes Bigelow gets this wild hair and feels a need to show his crazy agility. He starts off this match with a great drop kick, and later flips over the turnbuckle to the apron. Hopefully he keeps this stuff up, because I need someone to fill the void with The Real Doink getting fired.

During the match they put Crush on the satellite phone like they did last week. Last week the phone seemingly cut out, this week Crush went silent when Savage spoke. Vince asked him if he could hear Savage, and Crush responded by saying he'd never speak to Savage again. Macho had no clue what the hell that was about.

Bigelow won with maybe the crunchiest senton splash you'll ever see. I bet Leverne shat all over himself after that one. I wouldn't blame him if he did.

BRET HART HAS ONE REGRET
THIS ISN'T FUN ANYMORE.
Vince breaks down the events of SummerSlam where Jerry Lawler got a DQ win over Bret Hart. Bret was really good during all this calling into question the ref and Jack Tunney's proclamation that Jerry Lawler is the undisputed King of the Ring. Bret got personal saying that this isn't about titles or crowns, it's about family honor and that his only regret is that he didn't keep the Sharpshooter on longer. Solid no-nonsense promo that is a good representation of the Hitman character.

MR. PERFECT vs. MIKE BELL
At first this was like any other Perfect squash, but at some point Perfect got kinda pissy and started punching Bell in the face. He brought him over the corner and started fish hooking him by saying "So you wanna be a wrestler?" And started popping him in the face some more. More of that please.

IRS vs. PJ WALKER
IRS comes out and jaws about Razor Ramon a little bit. Schyster wasn't working on the future Justin Credible for long when Da Bad Guy came out and started talking smack to Irwin. Schyster gets distracted and PJ rolls up Schyster for the win!!! THE CLIQ IS HERE!

The crowd starts chanting 1-2-3, which makes you wonder why 1-2-3 Kid wasn't the guy in the ring. Still, it's PJ WALKER'S BIG WIN!!!! HISTORY WAS MADE!

OVERALL SHOW
The Steiner/Pierre match was good stuff and Bigelow was fun as per usual. Not a great episode but worth skimming for sure.

NEXT WEEK
Borga debuts on RAW. The Quebecers will give a tag title shot to NOT THE STEINRES(They're dicks) and JIMMY SNUKA RETURNS. Can't wait!
