This Week In 90’s Wrestling: March 22 – March 28


SMW television saw New Jack continue to panic over the upcoming arrival of The Undertaker while Al Snow and Unabomb parodied the Rock and Roll Express in a segment where Snow made fun of Gibson’s deaf mother before adding that he was so cross-eyed that when he cried, tears ran down his back.

WWF Superstars included an angle where Jerry Lawler accused Bret Hart of hating Japanese people, interrupting a ceremony where the Japanese media was presenting Bret with an award. This was a distraction so that Hakushi could attack Bret from behind to set up their feud.

WCW Saturday Night included a hilarious vignette where Steven Regal aimed to give new tag team partner Bobby Eaton a makeover to dreadful results. Meanwhile, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage pled to Commissioner Nick Bockwinkel to reinstate Ric Flair. Bockwinkel claimed that the famed WCW Executive Committee would vote next week.

WWF Monday Night RAW aired a show taped in San Antonio, TX on March 11. The show included a good match between Shawn Michaels and Leif Cassidy (Al Snow) and the final hype for Wrestlemania XII. The show drew a 2.8 rating, and you can watch it on the WWE Network.

WCW Monday Nitro aired live from Huntsville, AL, in front of 3,300 fans. The show featured two very interesting matches worth checking out. The first was a match where Sting and Lex Luger teamed against The American Males. Luger was a riot in this match, being mean to fans every time Sting was not watching and excitedly slapping hands when he was looking. He also took what was a sportsman’s match between Sting and the Males to another place when he lost his cool opposite Marcus Bagwell. In the main event, Ric Flair defended the WCW World Title against The Giant in a match that featured some of the most constant and inventive cheating you will ever see from a heel. The show did a 3.1 rating, beating RAW for the night, and you can watch it on the WWE Network.
