This is Rampage bay-bee.
It’s amazing to think that, after watching this Sid Justice-Undertaker match, Vince McMahon thought, “This is a future WrestleMania main event right here”.
This is show occurred only 10 months before your previous review, but it feels like a different era to me. I don’t know if it was the Raw setting or having Bret as the World Champ, but February of '93 felt a lot different from this April '92 show, which still seemed very 1980s in presentation.
I was surprised at how over Bret was here in Sheffield. I think he was more popular than Savage. Only Davey Boy seemed more over. And I was even more surprised that the crowd was chanting “U-S-A” for Duggan. What the hell was that?
This show aired on Sky; was this normal practice at the time? I know about the late '90s/early 2000s UK PPVs like Insurrection, but I wasn’t aware of the WWF doing UK-only shows at this time. Would this ever have aired in the US?
Second question: Do you know if they started testing for steroids by this point? Because it didn’t seem like it.
