Howdy Blog O’Doomers, time to go back to the ladder match and it’s always a good thing when the same two guys can do a ladder match 16 months apart and there’s an argument about which effort was better.
Fact is both of the Shawn-Razor ladder matches have a timeless classic aura about them. I believe generally the Wrestlemania X match is more revered because it was at Wrestlemania and it was such a unique match for Wrestlemania. Up until that point they only had one steel cage match and a couple battle royales.
By the time Summerslam 1995 came around it seemed like an odd time for a rematch because both guys were doing their alternate universe baby face thing. Hell by Summerslam 1995 the whole Clique (at least the four core members) were baby faces. Still I must applaud Shawn for demanding an opponent to have a good match with instead of trying to carry Sid…What an asshole!
With Nash’s recent revelation that they weren’t allowed to use the ladder as a weapon the second time around (maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not, who knows?) it gives me a greater appreciation for this one so enjoy it again with that in mind. For the WWF Intercontinental championship Shawn Michaels defends against Razor Ramon in a ladder match rematch.
