–Jim Ross and Stan Lane are tasked with the commentary duties for today’s show and they are taped from Lowell, Massachusetts. The tapings for this month’s set of episodes took place on April 5, 1995.
Sunday Night Slam was a show that the company aired a couple of times in 1994 and one time in 1995. It served as a lead-in for big pay-per-view events like SummerSlam and Survivor Series and tried to entice fans to buy the shows by showcasing the major feuds and angles in various matches. It was not quite a Clash of the Champions concept that WCW was using but it did provide the company with additional exposure on USA Network outside of its usual timeslots for Monday Night RAW, WWF Mania, and The Action Zone. Later on, the name of the show would be used to hype other pay-per-view events before the Free for All was created in January 1996, but it never again featured original matches.
–Vince McMahon and Jim Ross are doing commentary for the event. The matches were taped along with several episodes of Monday Night RAW on March 13 in Stockton, California.

–Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are in the commentary booth and they are wrapping up the tapings in Augusta, Georgia.
In response to the comments about whether an Undertaker-Razor Ramon match was ever considered for WrestleMania XI, it appears that the source used by James Dixon in Titan Sinking was a shoot interview with Scott Hall. When I check Dixon’s notes, the interview comes from an “unknown source,” so yes, it looks like that story is quite dubious.
–Men on a Mission’s post-match attack on the Smoking Gunns on The Action Zone is shown.
–Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are doing commentary and they are taped from Augusta, Georgia.

–Lex Luger recaps his feud with Tatanka and says that Chief Jay Strongbow will be in his corner tonight when he looks to finish Tatanka for good. The beginning of this promo was humorous as Luger struggled to speak and flex his pectoral muscles at the same time.

–Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels are doing commentary this evening and they are still taped from Palmetto, Florida. The green screen that they are broadcast against is jarring.
–A limousine pulls into the backstage area and Pamela Anderson walks out. She goes to her locker room as WWF wrestlers, led by Dink of all people, hoot and holler. What? You expected respectful manners out of a group of wrestlers?
As a side note, when you have been watching tons of television tapings from Liberty, New York in a high school gym for weeks on end it really makes you appreciate the bigger venue that this show is in and it makes everything seem more important.
–Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are on the mic and they are live from Tampa, Florida. What is hilarious about the opening is that Vince tries to introduce the Spanish announce team and Hugo Savinovich just stays seated with his back to the camera.
–Todd Pettengill is live from Tampa, Florida from the location of the Royal Rumble. Jim Ross and Gorilla Monsoon are in the booth calling the taped matches which are still from Liberty, New York. As long as it gets Todd out of the booth it is fine with me.
–Vince McMahon and Jerry “The King” Lawler are doing commentary and they are still in Newark, Delaware.
–Jim Ross and Todd Pettengill are in the booth and they are from various locations since the Action Zone broadcast a collection of matches from different TV tapings.
