Things continue to be in a weird place around here as we are still needing a big star. Finn Balor is still out injured and I’m not sure how things are going to go without something to focus on. Next week’s Halloween Havoc should help, but you can only get so far with so little to build around. Let’s get to it.

Monday Night Raw

Location: Thomas And Mack Center, Las Vegas, Nevada
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler
Smackdown has gotten through its pay per view now so it’s time for Raw to get ready for something of its own. In theory at least, as the next show is ECW One Night Stand, which could go in a lot of directions. This show has been a lot better than Smackdown as of late though so hopefully they keep it up here. Let’s get to it.

It’s time to start the second year as well as beginning the process of finding a new #1 contender. That means the first round of a tournament to crowd Jon Moxley’s next challenger, with the finals on November 7 at Full Gear. I’m not sure what to expect from this but it should be a wrestling heavy show. Let’s get to it.
Chip Kessler and Les Thatcher are in the booth and they are still covering action from the Jellico, Tennessee tapings.
Back with more Hardcore TV, as we’ll soon be into single digits as far as remaining episodes. Can I power through to the end? Let’s find out!
The SmarK Rant for WWF Superstars – 05.15.93
Taped from Tucson AZ and JESUS CAN WE GET AWAY FROM THIS TAPING ALREADY? I know I sound like a broken record with this, but 3 weeks really is the ideal amount of time for a taping cycle and their super-cheap “stretch it out to 4 or 5 weeks” bullcrap is just killing this show.
Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Randy Savage & Jerry Lawler
And a fine morning to you all.
