WWF Monday Night RAW 11-01-93

Taped from Poughkeepsie, NY

Airdate: November 1, 1993 (taped 10/18)

Attendance: unknown

Hosted by Vince McMahon & Bobby “The Brain” Heenan

Can Ramon conquer the behemoth Booger? Will the Gunns spoil the RAW debut of Well Dunn? Does Virgil stand a chance against Adam Bomb? What other surprise do I have inside? Let’s find out!

To open the show, Heenan stands next to a table full of food and questions an extremely eager and hungry Booger who vows to “eat (Ramon) up too.” Evidently, the food he’s consuming is RAW.

Opening montage.

Match 1 (non-title): WWF Intercontinental champion Razor Ramon versus Bastion Booger


Rating: *

Summary: Despite Ramon’s increasing popularity, this match stunk on Melba toast.

SURVIVOR SERIES REPORT: Joe Fowler Todd Pettengill shills the Riddick Bowe versus Evander Holyfield boxing PPV on 11/6 and shows off the promotional t-shirt in typical Pettengill fashion. He then shills the WWF PPV and runs down the card. We then revisit Superstars from this past weekend when the Foreign Fanatics cost Tatanka his undefeated streak. I guess if you’re going to lose, lose in a big way.

In the ring, Vince interviews the Foreign Fanatics. Borga insults the angry heat machine and vows to defeat Scott Steiner next week.

Promo airs for the Borga-Steiner match next week on RAW.

Match 2: Mr. Perfect versus the Executioner


Rating: *

Summary: Although this may seem like just a showcase match for Perfect, it was his last RAW wrestling match until 01/21/2002.

Promotional consideration paid for by the following: ICOPRO.

Vignette #3 for J-E-F-F J-A-R-R-E-T-T.

Match 3: The Smoking Gunns versus Well Dunn (w/ Harvey Wippleman)


Rating: **

Summary: Mediocre tag team match with a crappy finish.

After the match, the Gunns double-dropkick Dunn to send the heels scurrying.

Via telephone, “Macho Man” Randy Savage vows his return to RAW next week.

Match 4: Adam Bomb (w/ Harvey Wippleman) versus Virgil


Rating: ½*

Summary: Showcase match for Bomb.

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

Conclusion: With the exception of Hennig’s last WWF match for nine years, this episode is nothing more than an appetizer for the PPV, and not a good one at that.

TV Rating: 2.8

IN OTHER NEWS THIS WEEK: In a number one contender’s match, Sid Vicious battles “Nature Boy” Ric Flair on WCW Saturday Night (aired 10/30, taped 10/4). The winner will challenge Vader for the WCW World title at Clash XXV on 11/10.
