The SmarK Rant for Monday Night RAW – 05.03.94

Taped from Burlington, VT. Apparently no live show this cycle, as this show was taped the week before according to the title history. A quick check of the WON reveals that Vince was busy with the steroid trial and had to move the taping cycle up a week and skip the live show.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Randy Savage

Taped from Utica, NY

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Randy Savage. Reading Dave Meltzer’s hatred of Savage on color in the Observers from this time is kind of funny, as he just buries Savage’s commentary job and calls him the worst of all-time.

Yes! Google Play Music finally launches in Canada! Now I just need iTunes Radio.  (Well we do certainly have Apple Music up here now, although Google Play Music is my go-to music service.  Still waiting on YouTube Red, however.)

So after a bunch of older reposts, the Network has finally caught up to my archives, so we rejoin the WWF in March of 1994. To prove it’s current again I’ll be sure to make lots of jokes about the Sharks choking and NBA owners hating black people. Also, in a totally random note, I have been using a stopwatch app on my iPhone for months, only to discover that IOS 7 has one BUILT IN. Mind blown.  (OK, now we’re going down the rabbit hole a bit, with reposts from 2014 when the WWE Network was launching, so I’m rapidly going to catch up to the present time at this rate.  Also, for those who enjoy minutia about my real life, I’m a certified Apple tech, so I spend a pretty huge chunk of my daily life dealing with iPhone servicing and it’s weaned me off ever wanting one ever again.  I’ve had various combinations of Samsung, OnePlus and currently a Pixel since ditching the iPhone 4 years ago.  Android 4 Life!) 

Taped from Poughkeepsie, NY.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Ted Dibiase. That was always a decent combination. Right behind them in the front row is what can only be the FIRST EVER “RSPW” sign to make TV.

LAST NIGHT: Ken Shamrock submitted Vader in his debut (while Vince keeps throwing out Mike Tyson’s name), Ahmed was unable to disband the Nation, and Steve Austin failed in his first title shot at Undertaker!

Live from Newark, DE, a sold out 4077 people. Even looked small on TV.
