As of right now, we are officially 22 days away from the grandest show on Earth WrestleMania 33 and as you’ve noticed we have been counting down every day with one match from every Mania ever. For today’s Countdown To WrestleMania 33 match, we are going to the Hartford Civic Center for WrestleMania XI where Razor Ramon (accompanied by the 1-2-3 Kid) took on Intercontinental Champion Jeff Jarrett (accompanied by The Roadie) for the belt. The match came about after Jeff Jarrett had won their previous encounter at the 1995 Royal Rumble thanks to help from The Roadie. Before the match or even Razor’s pyro went off, Razor went right in and attack Jeff Jarrett sending him right to the outside. Razor was ready for war and he wanted to get his hands on Jeff Jarrett really bad. When Jarrett finally entered the ring, he was met with devastating right hands that sent him back to the outside once again to regroup. After reentering the ring, he once again was met with a right hand after a plan to use The Roadie as a distraction backfired, but The Roadie was a life saver as he saved Jarrett from receiving the Razor’s edge.
Nothing was going Double J’s way so he decided that he had enough and he was going to leave, but that was until the 1-2-3 Kid blocked him from doing so. Even after gaining a little control, he quickly lost it and Razor cleaned house sending The Roadie into the steel post and throwing Jeff Jarrett over the top rope. Jarrett would however gain control when he was able to kick Ramon in the chest when he attempted a back body drop and he then proceeded to hit him with two beautiful dropkicks. Jarrett was now in full control of the match and anytime Razor would attempt offense, he had a quick answer for it. After Razor was able to break the sleeper hold, he sent Jarrett to the ropes, but upon impact both men’s head collided and both men went down. When both men rose to their feet they would both attempt to punch each other and Razor got the best of that exchange, but he was worn out as he fell to the ring as well. Some time later, Razor would attempt a bulldog of sorts, but Jarrett quickly moved out of the way and noticed that Razor had landed awkwardly on his knee.
He quickly got up and set Razor up for the figure four leg lock. Things looked bleak for Razor who was reeling, but Razor was able to reverse it. Unfortunately, he had to let it go when the referee noticed the 1-2-3 Kid holding Razor’s arms for more leverage on the move. As soon as both men got up, Jarrett missed with a right and Razor set him up on the top turnbuckle and delivered a devastating backbody drop from the top. However, Razor didn’t cover Jarrett right away because it looked like his knee may have given out on him again, but as soon as he got to his feet, he signaled for the Razor’s edge. As soon as he got him in the air for it, The Roadie came in and clipped his knee forcing the referee to award Razor the match by DQ and we all know that titles cannot exchange hands on a DQ which means that Jarrett was able to keep the title. After the match, a mele broke out as all four competitors were brawling. While you’re at it, don’t forget to like our page on Facebook at Facebook.com/MRXPUNCHOUT and follow us on Twitter too
