-Where We Are Now: It's King of the Ring, 1994. OJ Simpson has recently captured the imagination of America with a white Bronco, and Owen Hart has passed on the mantle of "looking like a Trapper Keeper" to the future Bob Holly.
-900 numbers. I haven't really mentioned this, but in this era you can spend 99 cents to vote for, oh, what the fuck ever. Almost all of the polls have no effect on the programming. Between this and the hotlines, I wonder just how much money they managed to pull in this way.
-Randy Randy: "That's Dana Dobson, and I like sushi, and there's definitely no correlation there."
-RAW is getting big into the 'talk show' segment right now, which they haven't really done yet. The Heartbreak Hotel debuts, but The King's Court is being featured every other RAW right now.
-Debuting: Duke "The Dumpster" Droese. 1994 has not gotten off to a great start.
-Things You Don't See Anymore: Bret vs. Owen was built up for over a year, and was the rare feud where a rematch was not only warranted but the central payoff to the feud. Today, we get three PPV matches and several combinations featuring the principals on the weeklys.
-They're running a bit right now where they're doing interviews with members of the public who claim to have seen the Undertaker. (He's been missing since being stuffed in a casket.) Episode 60 features a deli clerk who talks while holding a chef's knife. By the blade. If you've ever worked in food service, this is mesmerizingly terrifying. If you haven't, move on down to the next item.
-King of the Ring: Mabel is so big that he small packages IRS, IRS tries to kick out while Mabel rolls off, and it's just not possible. This would not be the last time this happens.
