WWF Action Zone – August 27th, 1995


August 27, 1995

Your hosts are Jim Ross and Todd Pettengill.

Jacob & Eli Blu defeat Jason Ahrndt & Matt Hardy from the 8/27 edition of “Wrestling Challenge.”


SummerSlam ad airs.


We cut to the hosts as they run down the key matches on the SummerSlam card.


Clips of the Undertaker vs. Tatanka match from the 8/21 edition of “Monday Night RAW.”


Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeats Nick Barberri from the 8/27 edition of “Wrestling Challenge.”


Goldust Promo from RAW airs.


Razor Ramon defeats Tony DeVito from the 8/27 edition of “Wrestling Challenge.”  . Here, Ross says he has late-breaking news on Lex Luger & British Bulldog instead of plugging his interview with Luger on the Superstar Line.


The WWF New Fall Season airs.


Back to the hosts as Pettengill asks Ross if he has the new packet of info on the “Action Zone” as Ross says he did not. Pettengill says they have a new set and talked about getting fit for a new blazer as Ross gets the boot off of another show.


We get the events from RAW that lead to British Bulldog turning on Diesel. Ross prefaced these clips by saying Luger was at home in Atlanta, GA due to a “family emergency” and that everything is now fine.


The hosts now run down a few other SummerSlam matches. Ross also notes that Vince & Lawler are the announcers for the PPV.


Barry Horowitz defeats Hakushi from the 8/27 edition of “Wrestling Challenge.”  Ross confirmed that Shinja is not returning to the WWF after getting attacked by Bret Hart from a few weeks back.


The vignette of Isaac Yankem’s voicemail airs.


The Bret Hart interview with Dok Hendrix we heard on the 8/27 edition of “Wrestling Challenge.”


The SummerSlam video airs.


Final Thoughts: Well, nothing really happened here, again, but next week we get a featured match as they beefed up Action Zone a bit while RAW is pre-empted. And I’ll really just recap key editions of this show going forward.
