• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 27, 1995) – WWF SummerSlam 1995
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on August 27, 1995, the World Wrestling Federation aired ‘WWF SummerSlam 1995’ LIVE on PPV from the Civic Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
While of course still being a billion times better than any modern day era SummerSlam, this one is indeed considered the weakest Old School edition of SummerSlam, as it had a lot of fillers on the card.
The mere presence of great stars like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Triple H, Kevin Nash & Scott Hall, made more than up for it though.
Especially the Shawn/Razor Ladder match – rematch is considered one of the greatest Ladder matches ever!
Here are the PPV results:
– Hakushi defeated The 1–2–3 Kid
– Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated Bob Holly
– The Smoking Gunns defeated The Blu Brothers
– Barry Horowitz defeated Skip
– WWF Women’s Championship
Bertha Faye defeated Alundra Blayze (c)
– Casket match
The Undertaker defeated Kama
– Bret Hart defeated Isaac Yankem, DDS via DQ
– Ladder match – WWF Intercontinental Championship
Shawn Michaels (c) defeated Razor Ramon
– WWF World Heavyweight Championship
Diesel (c) defeated King Mabel

For those who don’t know, Matt is retiring from in-ring competition because he’s dealing condition where his lower back & pelvis have started fusing together.
This maneuver was called EVENT OMEGA..
And is most likely the reason that I’ve recently learned that my lower back & pelvis have started fusing together. pic.twitter.com/FzYebvIIc0
