Monday Night Raw
January 10, 1994
It’s the first anniversary show! Hey, there’s a cake at ringside. Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Randy Savage.
JS Storm vs Ludvig Borga.
Borga just beats the hell out of this guy. Lex Luger joins us by telephone telling us that he would LOVE to get his hands on Ludvig Borga. Vince informs us Jack Tunney has made Luger vs Borga at the Rumble. Borga wins with the TORTURE RACK. Winner @ 2:30 Ludvig Borga.
A few moments from the first year of Raw are shown.
The Quebecers vs The 1-2-3 Kid & Marty Jannetty.
Winners face Steiners at the Rumble for Tag Team Championship. The Quebecers dominated the majority of the match after an initial onslaught from Kid/Jannetty. They got cocky and tried proving a point by hitting LE CANNONBALL~ three times on Kid, but he moved on the third to make a hot tag to Marty. Polo attempted to interfere but it was stopped and Kid hit a crossbody as Jacques was in mid air during a Jannetty suplex. Winners @ 18:18 1-2-3 Kid and Marty Jannetty.
Absolute upset and the crowd went crazy. After the match Randy Savage left the commentary table to congratulate the new number one contenders before the Kid and Jannetty left through the crowd.
Let Us Take You Back To: Superstars, 1/8/94. Yokozuna BANZAI DROPS not one, but TWO scrubs at the same time. Afterwards, the lights go out and the Undertaker and Paul Bearer appear on the video wall as the finishing touches are being made on the XXXL custom-made casket.
Barry Horowitz vs Crush. Winner @ 2:33 Crush.
Another moment from the first year of Raw is shown.
Dan Dubiel & Phil Apollo vs The Headshrinkers. Winners @ 2:31 Headshrinkers.
Vince McMahon wants to check in and see how the Quebecers and Johnny Polo are doing. Jacques and Pierre appear much more confident that everything will be fine because they have a GENIUS of a manager. Jacques is so proud that Polo has signed a contract before tonight's match for a Tag Title shot next week against the Steiners. Polo is just smiling in the background so full of himself for doing that.
Yokozuna vs Tatanka.
Yokozuna picks apart Tatanka for most of the match. Tatanka makes a comeback which gets stopped by a Cornette racket shot. Yokozuna goes for a Bonzai drop but Undertaker's gong hits. Yoko looks to the aisle way in fear and out comes Paul Bearer rolling a casket. Yokozuna starts freaking out. Bearer rolls it to ringside and Yoko rolls out the other way and bails up the aisle way in absolute fear. Yoko gets counted out. Winner @ 15:45 Tatanka by countout.
One more moment from the first year of Raw is shown.
Derek Domino vs The Undertaker.
Earl Hebner has the urn in his hands for some reason. UT doesn’t like that very much and Paul Bearer has to direct Taker’s attention back over to Hudson. Chokeslam. TOMBSTONE. It’s all over. Winner @ 2:34 Undertaker.
After the match Undertaker rolls Domino into the casket and pushes to the back.
Now it’s time for Vince and Randy to cut the anniversary cake. Jerry Lawler comes out and demands to be included since he should be the commentator on RAW anyway. Savage agrees with him and says for at least one night, lets have bygones be bygones, and tells Lawler he can cut the cake. Savage looks to the crowd and Lawler asks where the knife is at. Savage tells him it's on the desk and Lawler reaches over to grab it and Savage shoves Lawler into the cake.
