Promo airs for Monday Night RAW. Why am I seeing an ad for a show I’m already watching?

Match 2: The Heavenly Bodies (w/ Jim Cornette) versus Mark Taylor & Scott Thomas


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for the Bodies.

Promotional consideration paid for by the following: ICOPRO.

We then revisit Superstars when Doink dumped confetti on Bigelow. When Luna chastised him, Doink dumped a pail of water on her (aired 10/2, taped 8/31).

Prior to the next match, Doink teased Heenan with another bucket of water. Inevitably, it turned out to be popcorn. Woohoo!

Match 3: Doink the Clown versus Corey Student


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Doink.

After the match, Bigelow comes to the ring, but officials prevent him from attacking Doink. Instead, he destroys Doink’s little red wagon.

Promotional consideration paid for by the following: WWF action figures.

To finish the show, we revisit the finish to the battle royal.

Conclusion: Completely skippable episode with ZERO redeeming value. Take a deep breath, ‘cuz next week we finally get the payoff.

TV Rating: 2.9

Stay tuned for WWF Monday Night RAW 10-11-93!
