I was reading an old random issue of the Observer and the following people debuted at the May 5 1993 TV tapings, eiher as new talent or for a try-out match:

Johnny Polo (aka Raven)
Adam Bomb (aka Bryan Clark)
Big City Mike (???)
Tazmaniac (aka Taz)
Colin Scott (???)
Harlem Knights (Men on a Mission)

Dave also reports Mike Shaw would soon be dropping the Friar Ferguson gimmick, which Dave called "one of the worst in history." Until Shaw's next gimmick, Bastion Booger.

Also: Sean Waltman was one week away from pinning Razor Ramon on RAW. This week, wrestling as cannonball kid, he got squashed by Curtis Hughes.

On the WCW front, we were only a week or two away from the infamous "boat" video. And Dave raves about how good the Hollywood Blondes are and what strides Steve Austin is making outside the ring.

ECW was still Eastern Champ.Wrestling, SMW was still in business and so was Global.

Makes a man feel old.

Hey... I actually LIKED Bastion Booger. And I'm not afraid to say it, either.

I liked the Friar... the "let the fans drink" interaction was pretty cool, and rare for the time...

I pick Booger to win.

Jeez, that does bring back some memories. I remember seeing the Lightning Kid on Raw and getting all excited since he was the star of the indies I'd read about in PWI. I really marked out when he beat the hated Razor too. Awesome stuff. Funny to think how both those guys careers have nose dived now, and compare my attitudes to both guys now with how much I adored them both back then.

Further not unentirely related random thoughts:

Actually it's also kindof funny that this period would have been the lead in to the last "dark age" and I still watched WWF throughout the Freddie Joe Floyd vs TL Hopper period, but now I don't.

Final also (you'll be gald to know), I miss Ted Dibiase. It was shortly after this time that the Million Dollar Corporation popped up, I believe, and even though his ring days were behind him, Ted was still awesome on the mic. Why couldn't he have been a GM of something or other? I suppose with his religious views now, the WWE wouldn't be his cup of tea, but a guy can dream can't he?

Actually, Saturn was the Mr. Irrelevant of the draft, being the last picked overall in the lottery. He was drafted by Smackdown.
