SummerSlam 93: A Lex Express Review

Vince McMahon and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan welcome us to The Palace at Auburn Hills (outside Detroit MI) on August 30, 1993 for that year’s SummerSlam.

Match 1: “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase VS Razor Ramon

Dibiase jumps Razor at the very start of the match but is quickly put down and dominated by the bigger Ramon. It’s not until Dibiase begins to choke Razor that the heel is able to get the advantage. He puts Razor in a headlock that leads to an ‘arm raise’ spot and a ‘false hope’ comeback. Dibiase attempts the ‘Million Dollar Dream’ but is countered only for Razor to end up on the floor as Dibiase removes the pad from one of the turnbuckles. Razor counters the attempt to use the unprotected turnbuckle against him and drives Dibiase’s head into it. Dibiase is on the receiving end of the “Razor’s Edge” and gets the pin and the victory.

This is a solid match. It’s nothing special but it accomplishes what it needs to and doesn’t take too long to do it. Razor looks good in the victory and Dibiase gets enough offense in for it to look like a contest.

Match Grade: C+

Following the match is an in arena interview with the mother and sister of the Steiner Brothers. It’s not a great interview but is perfectly interrupted by Jim Cornette in the ring introducing his tag team for the next match.
