Jerry Lawler vs. Roddy Piper from WWF 1994

King of the Ring
June 19, 1994

Originally reviewed here.

This was a methodical brawl that I did not find entertaining in any way, shape, or form. I definitely prefer Lawler’s work as a babyface, as his heel work seems entirely dependent on whether or not the crowd audibly hates him throughout the match. Piper looked worse here, as he brought no energy as the babyface. Skip this one. The geek saved Roddy from Lawler cheating to win late in the match, and Roddy then won after hitting a back suplex. (1/2*)
