WWF Raw Hits Video

1) Bret Hart vs. The 1-2-3 Kid – 5
2) Shawn Michaels vs. The British Bulldog – 5
3) Lex Luger vs. Tatanka – Steel Cage Match – 4
4) Alundra Blayze vs. Bull Nakano – 5
5) Bret Hart, Bob Holly, & The 1-2-3 Kid vs. Owen Hart, Yokozuna, & Hakushi – 4

This tape opens immediately with the old Monday Night Raw intro and music and is hosted by Stan Lane. All the matches are clipped in some spots to allow them to fit on this hour long tape. Bret and the Kid had a pretty satisfying match. Kid did a nice senton to the floor but overshot Bret by a bit and landed hard. Bret won with the sharpshooter after a very grueling twenty minute encounter. Michaels and Bulldog had a nice little match which could be mainly seen as the quintessential WWF-mid 90’s TV main event. There was some interference by Sid and Michaels bumped big. The cage match with Luger and Tatanka was kept short and pretty simple. Luger won after a big forearm clothesline from the middle rope. The women’s match was highlighted by Nakano hitting a suicide dive and Blayze hitting a German suplex on the floor. Blayze won the title after another nice suplex. The six-man tag wasn’t anything special, although it was pretty neat to see a young Bob Holly mix it up with Yokozuna. I’d mildly recommend this one for the Bret/Kid match and the women’s match, everything else can be skipped.

this was during an era that was earmarked by insulting gimmicks, but these matches sound pretty cool.
