Ahh the memories
Love these, Must watch HBK Vs Perfect that match sounds great!
Oh God, SS '93 was just amazing. I loved King's match against Hart tbh.
An underrated Summerslam. A few things pop back into mind watching this:
-This was the first PPV after Razor Ramon's face turn and also the last match Dibiase ever wrestled in WWF, I believe.
-Word is, back around the Spring of 1993, the four main guys they knew they wanted to make into the next main event stars were Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Lex Luger and Mr. Perfect. The Perfect/HBK feud was supposed to lead to Perfect eventually capturing the IC Title again (after this event) and then build to a main event push from there but unfortunately, his back problems started flaring up again and he had to go back into semi-retirement. Shame, as he probably would have won the world title in '94 or '95.
-Those Lex Express videos were corny lol. I also always found it funny how they did the big celebration for Luger when his victory was via count out and he didn't even win the strap. He was on fire though heading into Summerslam and lost a ton of momentum afterwards by not capturing the world title, so they definitely screwed up his push here. (Funnily enough, the exact same mistake the NWA made about five years earlier, by Luger not defeating Flair for the belt when he was at his hottest.) I remember on the old Coliseum Video that I rented as a kid, they showed footage after the PPV was over where more than half the arena was emptied out and Yokozuna was still lying on the outside unconscious lol.
Ha, that's cool . They should do this for all the ppvs

Feel sorry for the kids who missed older wrestling. It's just not the same watching videos. It was awesome to actually live through quality wrestling.
RIP GOOD WRESTLING PRODUCT
