• 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 he dropped 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 via countout
– Irwin R. Schyster defeated The 1-2-3 Kid
– Bret Hart defeated Doink the Clown via DQ
– Jerry Lawler defeated Bret Hart via 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) via countout

• Major Changes Expected In RAW Star’s Look
Kevin Owens challenged Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship this past Monday on RAW. Owens’ bad luck continued and he lost the match. After losing to Rollins, KO walked out of the arena after saying “I quit”.
There is speculation that WWE has a big storyline planned for KO’s return. According to the Fired Up podcast, Kevin Owens is going to be gone for a bit and when he comes back, we might be dealing with a leaner KO.
The plan right now is that Owens will return with Paul Heyman as his advocate, he will lose some weight while he’s off TV and then WWE will build him up as the guy who talks less and fights more.
Even though Kevin Owens speaks pretty well on the mic, pairing him up with Paul Heyman could bring a huge change in his career.
