Match Results & Match Ratings
Yokozuna with Mr Fuji defeated Koko B Ware
The Steiner Brothers defeated The Executioners
WWF Intercontinental Championship
Shawn Michaels defeated Max Moon
The Undertaker defeated Damien Demento
What a fantastic action packed hour (45 mins if you take out the advertisements) of quality Professional Wrestling put on by the World Wrestling Federation. This show had everything you could ask for and more from a wrestling fans perspective. We got to see Superstars like the enormous Yokozuna defeat Koko B Ware with ease. Surely he has to be one of the odds on favourites to win this years Royal Rumble ? The Steiner Brothers made short work of The Executioners, how long will it be before these two incredibly talented brothers get a shot at the tag titles. The Intercontinental Championship was successfully defended by Shawn Michaels. He has gone from strength to strength since breaking up with Janetty last year. If this run continues and he is able to get past Janetty at the Rumble, then go on to defend it at Wrestlemania I see no reason why he could not go down in history as one of the best IC Champs. Who knows after this run he could be looking at a future run as World Champion. Yes he may be a tad smaller than previous champions but his attitude, overall character and in ring ability more than make up for his lack of size. There was another squash match as The Undertaker defeated Damien Demento. The Undertaker has been phenomenal since his debut at Survivor Series 1990, I see no reason why he should not be the one to win the Rumble and go on to Wrestlemania and become a two time Champion. Then there was the whole comedic aspect of this episode. It was mainly down to Bobby Heenan and his eccentric attempts to get in the building. This was first hand proof that being naturally funny is a million times better than someone trying to be funny like the awful Rob Bartlett, he sucked. Razor Ramon did a fantastic job with his in ring promo to build towards The Royal Rumble where he will challenge Bret Hart for the championship. While he has only been in the WWF for a short time I see no reason why he could not make a great heel champion. There was more build up to the Royal Rumble with lots of video packages and this years Rumble is that more special as for the first time ever the winner will go on to Wrestlemania to face the champion. This is a fantastic concept and definitely adds alot more intrigue to this event. I hope this is something that is done every year from now on. The first of many episodes of Raw let’s hope I know I will be tuning in next week to watch the hottest wrestling on tv in 1993.
