Today’s co-host is Bastion Booger and he spends the entire episode eating nachos, pizza, hot dogs, and anything else he can get his hands on. Twice during the episode he nearly chokes to death on the prodigious amounts of food he stuffs into his maw. He also makes sure to make lots of fart jokes which Vince pretends to detest. Come on Vince, I know you wrote this stuff. All that being said, he’s actually not terrible on the mic. He’s at least better than IRS.
Near the top of the show, Owen Hart has a match against John Paul. Like before, he’s stealing Bret’s gimmick of going out to the crowd, picking out a kid, and putting his sunglasses on them. Except this time he instead breaks the glasses in half in front of the kid. That makes so much more sense to me. There’s no more mixed messages being sent with Owen. He’s clearly not a good guy.
After that we get another Paul Bearer promo on the Undertaker. This time he’s walking through a foggy cemetery at night and talking about Taker like he’s an urban legend. Briefly in the background we can see a figure walk by that looks like Taker but disappears as quickly as it arrives. These are honestly really cool promos to keep us excited and interested about Undertaker while he takes some time off to recover from an injury.
Following that we get IRS VS Marty Jannetty. This is a follow up from last week when Jannetty and the 1-2-3 Kid stole IRS’s briefcase in order to get Razor Ramon his gold chains back. As the action heats up, the Quebecers show up, but we cut to commercial. When we cut back, they’re already gone. I guess they managed to beat up Jannetty for a bit behind the ref’s back before a second ref sent them back to the locker room area. I’m not sure why they weren’t able to coordinate this part a little better. Isn’t it somebody’s job to know when commercials are happening and when to send guys out? Soon Johnny Polo comes out to ringside followed closely by Razor Ramon and then the Quebecers again. Johnny Polo manages to interfere with the match to let IRS get the win and then Razor gets jumped by Jacques and Pierre. Jannetty jumps in to help and they send the Quebecers packing.
The show ends with the Quebecers and Johnny Polo incoherently screaming and shouting backstage and smashing holes in the wood paneling because WWF President Jack Tunney has decided they must compete in a tag team match against Marty Jannetty and Razor Ramon in two weeks. Jannetty’s already beat them once for the title, so maybe he can make it happen again.
This match would happen on the next episode, but Raw is being bumped in favor of the Westminster Dog Show, which I will not be recapping.
