WWF Tag Team Champions The Quebecers (w/Johnny Polo) vs. 1-2-3 Kid & Marty Jannetty – (Raw 1/10/1994)
This is the one-year anniversary show of Raw. Geez, hard to imagine it’s been fifteen years now. Bobby Heenan is gone and Randy Savage is back on commentary with Vince. Wow, ladies are screaming for this one! Jannetty gets a quick victory roll on Jacques to start for 1-2-NO! Jannetty gets another rollup for another near-fall! Suh-nap! The Kid and Pierre tag. 1-2-3 Kid nails Pierre with a roundhouse kick for two. Now Jacques gives the Kid a try. Jacques calls Pierre in for some help to escape a headlock. That brings Jannetty in as well. The Quebecers look to ram the challengers heads in from opposite corners, but they get shoved off into one another. Dropkicks put the Quebecers on the floor to regroup with Polo. Back in, Pierre takes a double backdrop. Jannetty presses the Kid into Pierre for a dropkick. Pretty cool! Jacques takes a dropkick and now the Quebecers are back out on the floor. They head up the aisleway now like they are going to leave, but they’re just stalling. They’re not going anywhere. Back in again, Jannetty puts the brakes on a monkey flip and pops Jacques in the face as we go to commercial. During the break, Jannetty connected with a superkick on Jacques and got the three-count! Oh wait, he actually had his foot on the bottom rope. Match continues. Pierre pulls the top rope down to send Jannetty tumbling out to the floor. Even so, some heel miscommunication still manages to ensue! HOT TAG TO THE KID! He hits a kick combo on Jacques and cannonball splashes Pierre down on the floor! Holy crap. Springboard clothesline to Jacques inside the ring. Meanwhile, Johnny Polo has apparently sent Jannetty into the guardrail. In the ring, 1-2-3 Kid gets shoved off the top by Pierre to the mat below. Jacques distracts the ref while Pierre chokes the life out of the 1-2-3 Kid in their corner with the tag rope. The Quebecers deliver a double-hotshot for 1-2-NO! After another ad break, we return to see Jacques connecting with the Jumping Back Elbow for two. Jacques tags Pierre and backdrops him onto the Kid for another near-fall. The Quebecers deliver a weak modified version of Total Elimination. Jacques hits a Piledriver to set up the double-team SLINGSHOT SENTON! It connects! They go for another one, but Jannetty runs over and knocks Pierre off the top to the floor. Superkick to Jacques! Jannetty tries his best to wake up the Kid. The crowd is going INSANE! HOT TAG TO JANNETTY! He goes dropkick crazy on the Quebecers! DOUBLE NOGGIN KNOCKER! Polo gets punched off the apron. ROCKER-PLEX to Pierre! Cover, 1-2-3! We’ve got new champs! (13:47 shown) Fantastic formula tag match. The Jannetty/Kid team’s tag title reign would only last a week before the belts went right back to the Quebecers. ***¼
