Jerry Lawler will now be taking over permanent announcing duties on Raw while Jim Cornette focuses on his team's quest for the tag team gold. Tonight Bret Hart and Razor Ramon will be the special guests on The King's Court. Plus The Undertaker runs The Million Dollar Gaunlet. but first off we're kicking Raw off with two tremendous wrestlers going against each other as The 123 Kid takes on Shawn Michaels. This is what the new generation is all about and speaking of the new generation, we're going to see the debut tonight of a man who claims to be the future of the WWF, Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Footage was shown from a live event last night when Helmsley was in attendance watching the action as Tatanka was in a match. Hunter Hearst Helmsley was not impressed at all with Tatanka and following the match Tatanka was exchanging some words with Helmsley. Jerry Lawler thinks that was completely disrespectful from Tatanka. Hunter was there to see the action, to scout his future opponents and Tatanka did not make him feel welcome at all. Well tonight Hunter will be making his debut and Lawler thinks Helmsley's much more talented than Tatanka. Vince says we'll see about that.

Sunny then runs down the card for WrestleMania. We hear pre-recorded comments from Razor Ramon along with Pamela Anderson. Razor Ramon talks about his success at WrestleMania. He made an impact at his first WrestleMania at Caesar's Palace. Then last year, he made history when he defeated the boy toy, Shawn Michaels in a ladder match. At the Rumble, he beat Shawn to win the Rumble match. This meant that Pamela Anderson will be escorting him down the aisle at WrestleMania. At Saturday Night's Main Event, The Bad Guy made sure he's going to headline WrestleMania. Pamela says she's looking forward to accompanying Razor down to ringside at WrestleMania, he is oozing machismo. Razor has a smile on his face and puts his arms around Pamela and says this is the life. The bad guys' got the looks, the lady and soon.... (Pamela puts her arms around Razor's waist) he's going to have the big gold around his waist. Sunny then takes us back to ringside and it's now time to see another new face in the WWF and that's Hunter Hearst Helmsley.
Match 2 | Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs Barry Horowitz Jerry Lawler already seems to like Sunny and hopes to see more of her. Here comes Hunter Hearst Helmsley who's a newcomer here in the WWF. He hails from Greenwich, Connecticut. For the past two weeks we've been seeing Helmsley running down several superstars and we saw him last night at a live event when he was in attendance watching the action here in the WWF. Helmsley vows to become a star here in the WWF. Right now is the first time we'll get to see Helmsley in the ring. Lawler talks about how Helmsley's had nothing but the best all his life. He been trained by the best and he's a very good wrestler and all his life he's been nothing but the best. Look at the arragonce of Helmlsey who's got his nose that far up in the air, look at the aristocratic attitude here from Helmsley. He's been claiming that he's going to bring class and civility here to the WWF. Lets see what Hunter has to bring to the table. He's up against the veteran Barry Horowitz but Lawler makes fun of Horowitz who's never won a match here in the WWF.

What's this now, Helmsley then places Horowitz's head between his legs and applies a double underhook facebuster by realising Barry's arm and drives him down to the mat. What a devastating move. Lawler says Helmsley calls this the pedigree. Helmsley went for the pin and got the 3 count. A very easy victory here for Helmsley, an impressive athlete and we'll be seeing a lot more of Helmsley in upcoming weeks. Speaking of newcomers, Savio Vega who made his debut on Superstars this past Saturday, we'll see Savio making his Raw debut next week.

That was just the start, what Hunter Hearst Helmsley wants, he gets. Tatanka comes out and he doesn't appreciate the comments Helmsley made about him and several other superstars over the past two weeks. Even last night Helmsley was very disrespecful during Tatanka's match. Lawler cuts Tatanka off and tells him come on this is Hunter's first match, show some respect. Tatanka can learn a lot from Helmsley because Helmsley's come here to teach people about class and civility. Helmsley thinks Tatanka does not have these qualities and Tatanka is simply beneath him. Helmsley holds his nose up high and starts walking off. Look at the arragonce of this man. Tatanka tells Lawler soon he's going to show this rich snob what the WWF is all about.

What a miscarriage of justice this is and Bigelow, Dibiase and Luger celebrate up the entranceway as Paul Bearer checks on The Undertaker. You can bet The Undertaker will get his payback at some point.

President Jack Tunney needs to do something about this.

They're going to have a tough time deciding who to root for when two men that he hates face each other at WrestleMania. One man thinks he's the bad guy, mr machismo, the man that should have never won the Royal Rumble, Razor Ramon. Razor came out to a huge ovation. Razor stares Lawler down and throws his tooth pick in Lawler's face and Razor warns Lawler not to try to get funny with him. Lawler's already getting annoyed. Lawler tells Razor he's not here to pick a fight, he's here to do an interview. Then Lawler starts bragging about how he's humiliated Bret over the last two years. Lawler then calls out Bret Hart who comes out to a huge ovation. Lawler is not pleased with the ovation the Hitman received and he wants Bret's music to be cut and Lawler starts getting down to the point. Lawler really can't believe why these moron fans want to see Bret Hart vs Razor Ramon at WrestleMania. He calls Razor a thug and he doesn't deserve to be representing the WWF as the WWF Champion. As for Bret Hart, he shouldn't be the champion, that belt should have been Owen's. Lawler talks about how both men have some sort of respect for each other but he thinks it's bogus and it's just to fool all these moron fans. Deep down Bret and Razor both hate each other and Lawler actually hopes that they both tear each other apart at WrestleMania. Bret cuts Lawler off and he knows what Lawler is up to, he knows the type of games Lawler is playing trying to get Bret and Razor to go against each other.
Lawler then stirs up trouble and brings up comments that Razor made about Bret's family two years ago to wind Bret up. He then winds Razor up that Bret beat him twice and since then Razor has never recovered. The last time they faced each other was at the King of the Ring two years ago. Bret beat Razor in the opening match and Bret went on to win the tournament but we all know what happened at the end when Bret got crowned by yours truly hahahaha. Lawler laughs. Bret tells King he's that close to knocking him out so King shuts up. Bret challenges Lawler to a match this week on Superstars. Razor tells Bret that he's a great champion, one of the best but it's time for the torch to be passed. Now it's the bad guy's time to step up the ladder. Just like he climbed the ladder to success at WrestleMania last year, this time he's going for the big one and come WrestleMania, he's taking The Hitman's title. Bret responds back by telling Razor how he walked The Razor's Edge before and made Razor submit. When they meet again, Razor will find out just like everyone else why The Hitman is the best there is, the best there was and the best there.... Razor takes the mic off Bret and wait a minute both men having a staredown. King chimes in and asks why make these people wait till WrestleMania when we can see a good fight right now. Come on tear each other apart, we all want to see it. Bret knows Lawler's stirring up trouble so he turns his attention on Lawler and grabs Lawler by the jacket. Bret goes for a right hand and King ducks and Bret nails Razor with a right hand. Razor got back up and shoves Bret, Bret shoves him back and Razor nails Bret with a right hand. Bret tackles Razor down and they start brawling. Lawler rolls out of the ring and Lawler's smiling as officials run down to break it up, both men being pulled apart by the referees. Look at what the King has done. Bret and Razor notice Lawler laughing and he's got a big grin on his face as Raw goes off the air.

Owen Hart defeated a jobber. Following the match Bob Backlund appears on the screen and he's standing along with some local jobber in the locker room. He made a bet with this guy that the guy won't be able to escape the crossface chickenwing. Backlund tells Owen there is no escape from the crossface chickenwing and Owen will be screaming in pain and he's going to show Owen a demonstration that there is no escape. This will be Owen Hart at WrestleMania. Backlund asks the local jobber if he can try to get out of the hold and the guy thinks he can do it. Backlund puts the chickenwing quickly on him and the guy immediately gives up. He wants Backlund to let go, Backlund is screaming Owen's name and yells come on Owen give up, come on give up. Backlund has lost it. Backlund yells am i going to retire and the guy screams Noooo. Finally he lets go and says ladies and gentleman the winner and new Intercontinental Champion, Mr Bob Backlund. Owen is disgusted and the crowd gives Backlund a great ovation.
Bret Hart defeated Jerry Lawler. Razor Ramon comes out at the end of the match and stands near ringside to stare down Bret. Bret holds up the WWF Title taunting Ramon.
Also on the show Vince McMahon conducts an Interview with President Jack Tunney. Vince discussed The Million Dollar Gaunlet on Monday Night Raw. The Undertaker will get his chance to get his revenge on Bam Bam at WrestleMania but you can certainly expect the same people who interfered in the gaunlet to be involved in Undertaker's match at WrestleMania. How can Jack Tunney put a stop to this? Tunney decides that he's not going to ban The Corporation from ringside because they're going to have to deal with someone who's going to stop outside interference. Just like Undertaker's match with Yokozuna at Survivor Series, he appointed a special enforcer and it worked so well that we're going to have a special enforcer for Undertaker's match against Bam Bam at WrestleMania. This man has history with Ted Dibiase and we saw him at Saturday Night's Main Event. This man will be there this Monday on Raw and the special enforcer is Rowdy Roddy Piper. The fans love this announcement and Vince can't wait to see Hot Rod on Raw.
Backstage The Million Dollar Man and Bam Bam are not pleased with Jack Tunney's announcement. Bam Bam says bring on Piper, he doesn't care. If he gets in Bam Bam's way then he's going to wipe Piper out. Bam Bam thinks Undertaker is nothing without his urn and on Raw this week, The Corporation showed The Undertaker how strong they are. Bam Bam wants his match with The Undertaker to be a no holds barred match, here there are no rules, this is exactly what Bam Bam wants. This is his kind of match and he's going to do whatever it takes to defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
WWF Wrestling Challenge | March 19 | 1995

Jean Pierre Lefite defeated a jobber
The British Bulldog defeated a jobber. Following the match Lex Luger ran down to attack The Bulldog.

Bulldog follows up with another clothesline sending Luger to the floor and the crowd is going nuts. Bulldog flexes his muscles and taunts Luger as Luger backs up the entranceway. What a match up this is going to be when these two powerhouses square off at WrestleMania.
New WWF Interviewer Sunny presented a face to face segment in the studios. Joining Sunny this week is The Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart and Bob Backlund. Owen appears on the screen first. Owen welcomes Sunny to the WWF, he's proud to see a new face in the WWF because she's New Generation. Bob Backlund then appears on the screen and Sunny talks about the importance of this match, it's title vs career. She talks about Bob Backlund's incredible 6 year WWF Title reign but Owen interrupts and asks Sunny why doesn't she ask Backlund who helped him win the WWF Title at Survivor Series and how long did that reign last? Backlund cuts in and tells Owen has he ever been WWF Champion? Backlund says his one Rumble performance in 1993 lasted longer than Owen's previous three Rumble performances combined. Owen fires back and asks Backlund has he ever been King of the Ring. Both men start arguing and Backlund states that he's a stubborn man and he doesn't give up easily and he's going to take that belt off Owen. He's going to take this title to a new level. Owen fires back and claims that he's already given the belt so much prestige because he's already the King. He knows that Backlund's a lunatic but he sure can wrestle but Owen believes that he's a better wrestler than Backlund and he can outwrestle Backlund. Backlund starts yelling about how he's going to dismantle Owen when they meet at WrestleMania. Owen's response was that he will show any compassion for him, he's going to have no regret in ending Backlund's career. Both men argue and Sunny thanks both men for joining her and she can't wait for WrestleMania.
It is announced that tomorrow night on Raw, newcomer Savio Vega will take on the huge King Kong Bundy.
Razor Ramon defeated Henry Godwinn. Bret Hart came down to join Gorilla Monsoon and Jim Ross for commentary. Bret states that he would someday like to see Razor become champion but right now there's no chance of that happening. At WrestleMania, he's going to shatter Razor's dream and the reality is that he's beat Razor twice and he's going to do it again for the third time. Near the end of the match, when Razor was about to put away Godwinn, he looks at Bret and motions for the belt. Could this be The Hitman at WrestleMania? Bret says he's the excellence of excecution and he's got a counter for every hold. Razor scoops Godwinn up and drops him with the Razor's Edge to win the match. Bret stood up and held his title up and Razor motions for the title. Next week will be the final episode of Wrestling Challenge
Also on the show, Jim Ross interviewed Tatanka. Jim Ross brings up the confrontation between Tatanka and Hunter Hearst Helmsley on Raw. We don't know much about Helmsley but he's already starting to become very unpopular here in the WWF. Tatanka talks about his roots, how proud he is of his heritage. He represents all Native Americans and over the past two weeks, Helmsley was making fun of not only him but several other superstars. A rich snob like Hunter Hearst Helmsley may have got what he had wanted in life but now he's here in the WWF. Here you have to fight for everything. You have to work your way to the top. Tatanka explains about how he had goals when he was about to arrive in the WWF. He was sitting in his homeland with all of his native Americans. His vision was to climb to the top of the mountain of the WWF. He found out the hard way that this isn't so easy, but a guy like Hunter Hearst Helmsley's already so confident that he's the future of the WWF. Well now that he's here, Hunter's going to find out the hard way what the WWF is all about.

Thanks so much for the reviews guys, hope you all enjoy this week's Raw show. Not long to go till WrestleMania.
The newcomer, Hunter Hearst Helmsley is set to take on Tatanka at WrestleMania. Expect to see an official announcement being made soon. Hunter Hearst Helmsley has already started to make friends in the locker room and they are The Kliq. Already Hunter has settled in well. The Kliq is a backstage group which contains Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Razor Ramon and The 123 Kid. In real life, these four men are good friends but on screen only Shawn is the heel. The Kliq has had a lot of backstage influence and several superstars do not like The Kliq. With The Kliq taking Hunter under their wing, expect to see Helmsley being a big part of the new generation.
WWF Management is extremely high on The 123 Kid and it is expected that he will get a good push this year. Shawn Michaels certainly had no problem putting his friend over and it gets to show that The Kliq don't have a problem putting each other over.
Officials have thought about turning Shawn Michaels face but Shawn Michaels was against the idea as he enjoys playing the role of a heel.
A 10 man tag team match will be taking place at WrestleMania featuring some of the stars that are not on the card yet. An announcement will be made for this match a few days before WrestleMania. Don't expect to see this match last long, it's just to get some of the stars on the card.
Following Lex Luger's victory over The Undertaker in the gaunlet match, Officials have discussed the idea of a feud between The Undertaker and Lex Luger in the near future. This will continue the angle between The Undertaker and The Million Dollar Corporation.
An announcement for the debut of a new WWF ppv coming in May will be made soon on WWF programming.
