MATCH : Razor Ramon v Shawn Michaels


EVENT : Summerslam 1995

VENUE : Civic Centre, Philadelphia

DATE : 27th August 1995

CHAMPIONSHIP : WWF Intercontinental Title

STIPULATION : Ladder Match

BACKGROUND : About 18 months after the original ladder match between Shawn Michaels & Razor Ramon the two men locked horns in a rematch at Summerslam 1995. The two men would both go into the match as faces but with very little build up between them. The reason for that was Michaels was supposed to go up against Sid on this Pay-Per-View but Vince McMahon changed all the plans prior to the event. So with the original ladder match between the two seen as one of the greatest matches in Wrestlemania history, how could this one match up?

MATCH REVIEW : Although this match isn't as good as the ladder bout at Wrestlemania 10, the two men pulled off another classic which goes down in Summerslam history as one of the best matches! The two men delivered a match full of great psychology and perfect intensity but also added a few shout outs to their previous match which made it pretty cool. I think both the ladder matches these men had stand the test of time which is something to be said considering how advanced ladder matches have become. Not an easy job to live up to a 5* match but they gave it a good shot, would have been even better had the end not been a little rough around the edges.
