• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 30, 1993) – WWF SummerSlam 1993
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 30, 1993, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘WWF SummerSlam 1993’ LIVE on PPV from the The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
The pay-per-view was originally supposed to be main evented by Hulk Hogan defending the WWF World Heavyweight Championship against Bret “The Hitman” Hart, but Hogan retired from Professional Wrestling to concentrate on filming the TV-series ‘Thunder in Paradise’ instead.
So Hogan went on to drop the belt back to Yokozuna at the previous PPV (King of the Ring 1993) and the World Wrestling Federation turned “The Narcissist” Lex Luger babyface, presenting him as an All American Superhero, in an attempt to build up the next ‘Hulk Hogan’. Needless to say, we all remember how that worked out.
Here are the PPV results:
– Razor Ramon defeated Ted DiBiase
– WWF Tag Team Championship: The Steiner Brothers (c) defeated The Heavenly Bodies
– WWF Intercontinental Championship: Shawn Michaels (c) defeated Mr. Perfect by countout
– Irwin R. Schyster defeated The 1-2-3 Kid
– Bret Hart defeated Doink the Clown by DQ
– Jerry Lawler defeated Bret Hart by DQ
– Ludvig Borga defeated Marty Jannetty
– Rest in Peace match: The Undertaker defeated Giant Gonzalez
– The Smoking Gunns & Tatanka defeated Bam Bam Bigelow & The Headshrinkers
– WWF World Heavyweight Championship: Lex Luger defeated Yokozuna (c) by count-out
