4.0 out of 5 stars recommended ppv - typifies the feel of early 90s WWF events
Summerslam '93 reminds me of how much the era of WWF Attitude in the late 90s has changed the whole feel of these events. This ppv takes place before blood-soaked hardcore matches and smashed ringside tables became commonplace. This card features some great singles and tag team wrestling as well as an award winning feud. Here's a rundown of the major matches:

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the first pay per views I have seen and it's good.
It starts with an entertaining match between Razor Ramon,Randy Savage,Marty Jannetty and The 1-2-3 kid(x-pac) vs I.R.S,Rick Martel,Diesel(Kevin Nash)and Adam Bomb.Next The Harts(Bret Hart,Owen Hart, Bruce Hart and Keith Hart) face off against Shawn Michaels and his knights of the squared circle. The next two fights suck.First there is the Smokey Mountain tag team title...

4.0 out of 5 stars recommended ppv - typifies the feel of early 90s WWF events, 25 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Summerslam '93 reminds me of how much the era of WWF Attitude in the late 90s has changed the whole feel of these events. This ppv takes place before blood-soaked hardcore matches and smashed ringside tables became commonplace. This card features some great singles and tag team wrestling as well as an award winning feud. Here's a rundown of the major matches:
Steiner Brothers vs. Heavenly Bodies - a stunning example of crisp and exciting tag-team action. The Steiners receive a great crowd response for their endless array of high-impact suplexes - they're all here. Their opponents execute some great double-team manoeuvres and show great timing. This is classic, speedy wrestling action which gives you no time to catch your breath - the best Steiners match at any WWF ppv.
Shawn Michaels vs. Mr. Perfect - a clash of 2 great technical wrestlers that match each other move for move. A fine mix of mat work and aerial manoeuvres, the crowd are firmly behind Perfect in the most skilful match of the event. It's a shame that the ending shortchanged the fans.
Bret Hart vs. Jerry Lawler - I'm a big fan of Bret Hart and I wondered how well he'd work with the aging Jerry Lawler. I needn't have worried -their feud is red-hot with an emotionally charged atmosphere in the arena. Two of Bret's brothers inc. the late Owen Hart are at ringside to witness a great brawl unfurl - but before Lawler and the Hitman collide, Bret has to face an unexpected opponent in the shape of Doink the Clown. These may not seem like great encounters on paper, but these wrestlers know how to work the crowd. Bret pulls off a few of his trademark moves, but these are not technical matches - it's all about how to get a feud over with the crowd, and it's done with style.
Lex Luger vs. Yokozuna - In 1993, McMahon was grooming Luger to become an All-American hero and respected WWF champion. The Lex Express campaign was one of the most expensive marketing ideas in wrestling - and yet the audience never embraced Luger as intended. Here, he battles Yokozuna (the most hated heel at the time) in a passable match with few surprises. Due to Yoko's great bulk, Luger's usually limited arsenal is lessened further - mostly punches and elbow drops - although he does manage a crowd-pleasing body slam on Yokozuna (emulating Hogan's efforts against Andre the Giant at WM III). The stars and stripes parade is out in full force in this match, but I must admit that I always disliked the anti-Japanese sentiment forcefed to the WWF fans.
Undertaker vs. Giant Gonzalez (R.I.P. match) - this meant no DQs and no count-outs. Undertaker has had some cracking matches in his time, esp. against Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley - but this isn't one of them. Gonzalez may be a giant, but his punches and body shots look so weak that he just doesn't seem threatening. Due to his size, 'Taker can only trade punches, clotheslines and his famous rope walk. There's no great momentum or excitement to this match.
Other highlights from the tape - See the 1-2-3 Kid (now X-Pac) in his ppv debut against I.R.S - he was more athletic and daring in those days, with great legwork and movement. Marty Jannetty takes on Ludwig Borga - not a defining moment for Marty who 'jobs' to Borga throughout almost the whole match, selling his stomach punches as if he was being hit by torpedoes. It makes you aware of the gulf in career success between himself and Shawn Michaels, his former partner. There's a lively 6-man tag between Tatanka / Smoking Gunns vs. Bam Bam Bigelow / Headshrinkers and also Ted Dibiase's swansong in the WWF as he takes on Razor Ramon.
All in all, this is a solid and entertaining ppv and is well produced. The "Countdown to Summerslam" sets up the matches well and puts you in the mood for what's to come. The commentary is strangely muted on my tape - I don't know if that's my luck or not! Vince McMahon and Bobby Heenan provide the chat - for me, they never had the same chemistry as Gorilla Monsoon and Heenan who played off each other wonderfully. The best commentary offers verbal jousting and laughs alongside the action, i.e. a match on AND off-screen... A slice of nostalgia that somehow feels warmer and more inviting than the late 90s "Attitude" of WWF events.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the first pay per views I have seen and it's good., 4 May 2000
It starts with an entertaining match between Razor Ramon,Randy Savage,Marty Jannetty and The 1-2-3 kid(x-pac) vs I.R.S,Rick Martel,Diesel(Kevin Nash)and Adam Bomb.Next The Harts(Bret Hart,Owen Hart, Bruce Hart and Keith Hart) face off against Shawn Michaels and his knights of the squared circle. The next two fights suck.First there is the Smokey Mountain tag team title match against Rock and Roll Express vs The Heavenly Bodies.Then it's The 4 doinks vs Bam Bam,Bastion Booger and The Headshrinkers.But now on to the main event. It pits The All Americans(Lex Luger,Undertaker and The Steiner Brothers) against The Foreign Fanatics(Yokozuna,Ludvig Borga,Jacques of the Quebecers and Crush).It peaks when Undertaker faces off against Yokozuna.All in all it's a good ppv and it deservers its 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The WWF's First UK Only Pay-Per-View, 20 April 2000
By A Customer
This tape is great, and features the only WWF Title change to have happened on a UK pay-per-view. It may not have been Bret Hart's World Championship changing hands, but it was a title none the less. This show features some solid matches from the WWF's finest, and is the best UK pay-per-view to date (I hope Insurrextion beats it, mind, because I going to see it live in Earls Court). The double main event basically is the high point. Undertaker and Bret Hart have a good WWF Championship bout, and HBK and the British Bulldog's battle for the European Championship is an excellent way to finish the show. They electrify the crowd, and the seeds for DX are planted in this match, thanks to Triple H and Chyna's constant attacks on Bulldog outside the ring. A great pay-per-view, I recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars WrestleMania 4's Revenge, 26 Sep 2004
Unlike the WrestleFest predecessors that followed,
this first one was an actual live show held in the massive Milwaukee Stadium !
It doesn't actually say when it was shown, but I can only assume it was sometime after WrestleMania 4, meaning it was probably one, if not, the first video produced back then to not be part of the WrestleMania, Summerslam, Survivor Series collection !
The Match listing includes :-
The Killer Bees Vs The Fabulous Rougeous
Bret Hart Vs Bad News Brown (Grudge Match)
The Bolsheviks Vs Powers Of Pain
The Ultimate Warrior Vs Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan in a never before seen 'Loser Wears a Weasel Suit Match' (Quite Funny, and I bet you can't guess who wins (!)
Intercontinental Title Match
'Hacksaw' Jim Duggan Vs The Honky Tonk Man
Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart Vs 'Leaping' Larry Poffo (Macho Man's Brother)
Jake 'The Snake' Roberts Vs Ravishing Rick Rude (Major Grudge Match)
Ken Patera Vs Dino Bravo
Tag Team Title Match
The British Bulldogs Vs Demolition w/Mr Fuji
World Championship Steel Cage Match
Andre The Giant w/Bobby Heenan Vs Hulk Hogan.
All in all this is isn't too bad for a live show.
Back then, the WWF only had 3 Events in a year so it is refreshing to see how some of the feuds developed after Wrestlemania and led up to Summerslam '88.
The best (entertaining matches) are The Ultimate Warrior Vs Bobby Heenan, just for the comedy value really !
Jake Roberts Vs Ravishing Rick Rude, just for the intensity level of how much they despised each other !
The British Bulldogs Vs Demolition was a very evenly contested match up that went back and forth.
In a rare singles match (at the time) Bret Hart did well against Bad News Brown, in what probably was Bad News' one and only half decent match in his whole career !!
The Main Event with Hogan and Andre is ok, but it doesn't come close to their best efforts at WrestleMania 3.
However it is interesting to see these 2 lock up in this type of match.
I would definately recommend this to have in your collection if you appreciate the old style WWF back in those days, and also to watch never-before-seen match ups.
