1 Sgt Slaughter vs Iron Sheik (6/16/84
DR: Yeah, yeah- it's fuckin great. Would have been better if Don Kernoodle was ringside. Fuck the WWF.
2 Ricky Steamboat vs Randy Savage (3/29/87 Pontiac MI Wrestlemania 3)
3 Adrian Adonis/Dick Murdoch vs Brisco Brothers (12/28/84 MSG)
4 Bret Hart vs Randy Savage (Seattle WA 11/11/87 aired SNME 11/28/87)
5 Bob Backlund vs Adrian Adonis (1/18/82 MSG)
TKG: These two guys work each other really well and you watch them go and find yourself saying: "Wow these two guys have a really great match in them". Maybe it was on a houseshow that didn't make tape. At the midway point in this match it turned into a Tenzan match for six minutes.
6 Bret Hart vs Mr Perfect (10/2/89 Wheeling WV)
DR: One thing i learned from this experience is that I really really fucking hate Mr Perfect. He is sooo the worst of the AWA big bump style that was created by Ray the Crippler Stevens. Terry Funk, Ric Flair, Dick SlaterFuck, Sgt Slaughter all truly crucify him in comparison simply because they didn't completely expose the BIZ when they went on offense. Fuck, Shawn Micheals is better at that style than Perfect. SHAWN MICHEALS is more of fucking threat when he goes on offense. Shawn Micheals.
7 Greg Valentine vs Ron Garvin (9/30/89 MSG)
8 Glamour Girls vs Jumping Bomb Angels (11/24/87 MSG)
DR: Why was this so high? Sure, the Glamour Girls were the best tag in the WWF in the 1980's but come on. Couldn't they find two nice American girls who could pull off a double dropkick? Hell, shave the Killer Bees correctly and put them in dresses and you would have had the same match. Though I guess Joshi dorks in love with Cheryl Tiegs retro haircuts couldn't bust a viscuous load over their Jumbo Hori custom made blow-up doll.
9 Brainbusters vs Hart Foundation (8/28/89 East Rutherford NJ Summerslam)
DR: Goddam. Maybe it WAS the Rock and Roll Express that carried Arn and Tully. Or maybe the Hart Foundation are the Biggest Lie on the whole 8 discs.
10 Ricky Steamboat vs Jake Roberts (8/9/86 Boston MA)
11 Sgt Slaughter vs Iron Sheik (5/21/84 MSG)
12 Dynamite Kid vs Bret Hart (9/14/85 Landover MD)
DR: Garvin-Valentine was to BattlARTS what this match was to Dragon's Gate.
TKG: Dynamite v. Bret is a poor man's version of Barry Horrowitz vs. Owen. And that isn't as good as Horrowitz vs. Horner.
13 Ultimate Warrior vs Rick Rude (8/28/89 East Rutherford NJ Summerslam)
14 British Bulldogs vs Hart Foundation (9/23/85 MSG)
DR: Jesus Fucking Christ. I can't believe I spent all that time in the 80s hating on Hulk Hogan because he wasn't Ric Flair. I should have been hating on the British Bulldogs because they weren't the Rock N RollExpress. And I should have been hating on the Hart Foundation because they weren't the Midnight Express. Dynamite Kid had WORKRATE matches with TigerMask! And that averts your eyes to the fact that he and Davey Boy Smith were more boring than Mike Enos taggin with Mike Enos. And fuck a Hart Foundation. Folks will argue and have revisionist theories on the good qualities of Jim The Anvil Niehardt. It all sidesteps the fact that Eaton and Condrey crapped better wrestling matches than the Hart Foundation conjured on its best day. Yeah, fuck this shit. Hogan at least connected with the audience in a way that was in the same ballpark as Flair. Fuck this match.
TKG: People made a big stink about Mr Wrestling II vs. Les Thorton being a poor man's Destroyer vs. Billy Robinson. Its an accurate descriprion of that match. This was a poor man's Rockn Roll RPMS vs. Mod Squad.
15 Barry Windham vs Dick Murdoch (2/16/85 Philadelphia PA)
16 Bret Hart vs Ted DiBiase (3/8/89 Odessa TX aired Prime Time 3/20/89)
