TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… SEPT. 6th: JR says he’s bringing back Razor and Diesel

DATELINE: SEPT. 6, 1996 – THE CIVIC CENTER – WHEELING, WV


Jim Ross announces on a special Friday Night edition of RAW that Razor Ramon and Diesel were going to return to the WWF.

This confused commentators and fans, as Scott Hall (Razor Ramon) and Kevin Nash (Diesel) both left a few months earlier for big contracts in WCW. This would lead to a short-lived -and forgettable- heel run for JR, when he disappointed the fans by introducing new wrestlers under the old gimmicks (Glen ‘Kane’ Jacobs as Diesel and ‘Rick Titan” Bognar as Razor Ramon)
