WWF Summerslam 1994 (Wrestling Review)



Chicago, IL

Aug. 29, 1994


Tag Team Match
The Headshrinkers (Fatu & Samu) (w/Afa & Captain Lou Albano) vs. The Million Dollar Corporation (Bam Bam Bigelow & Irwin R. Schyster) (w/Ted DiBiase)

A decent match with two good teams that just fizzled out. It was as if no one wanted to lose so they just brawled into the back as a DQ. 

1.5 / 5

WWF World Women’s Title Match
Alundra Blayze (c) vs. Bull Nakano (w/Luna Vachon)

A very good womens match, something that wasn’t too common here. Bull came off like a good powerful heel trying to break Blayze down with submissions. Blayze got the comeback here for the win and the crowd was into it a lot . 

3 / 5

WWF Intercontinental Title Match
Diesel (w/Shawn Michaels) (c) vs. Razor Ramon (w/Walter Payton)

A solid match here that Razor was able to help carry even though he was the underdog most of the match. The title change was good and while Diesel was a great sight to see his flaws in ring did show a bit much here. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Tatanka vs. Lex Luger

A slow 6 minute match. Ending with a roll up was awful and no one was into this really. 

1 / 5

Singles Match
Jeff Jarrett vs. Mabel (w/Oscar)

They tried but Mabel just isn’t mobile so its limited on what they can do. 

1 / 5

WWF World Heavyweight Title Steel Cage Match
Bret Hart (c) vs. Owen Hart

A 5 star classic and one of the best cage matches ever. They told a story, had in ring psychology, and had the crowd going for the close escapes here. It never dragged at 30+ minutes and they kept the bigger moves for moments when it mattered and had a pacing that worked perfectly. 

5 / 5

Singles Match
The Undertaker (w/Ted DiBiase) vs. The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer)

A horrendous main event. A joke of a match and a horrible story. They couldn’t even pull off a good wrestling match because there was numerous botches and near slips here. 

.5 / 5
