  1. Iceman Parsons and Lanny Poffo vs Jim Neidhart and Butch Reed. Good but fairly nondescript match from 1983 Mid-South TV but notable for being the first match where Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler worked as commentary duo.
  2. Some of the early WMs weren't that bad but at least they were memorable, the roster was kept fresh and you had different guys in different places on the card on every show. King Kong Bundy won a squash at the I, main evented II, was in a comedy match with midgets at WM III, and then he was gone. The roster has been so stagnant in the last 20 years, people stay around forever in the same spot, and all the WrestleManias blend together with the same few guys rotated around, facing each other in different combinations.
  3. I see you discovered Meltzer's notebook the week before Bash at the Beach '96.
  4. Good job Brian Knobbs was wearing that t-shirt as he's unrecognisable otherwise. He looks great.
  5. Why was he named after Canada's national sport? And why wasn't there a Jeffry McWild wrestler as well?
  6. Has anyone read Gil Culkin's The Mississippi Wrestling Territory - the Untold Story?
  7. I've always heard about this but have never watched it. CWA Bodyguards vs Bandits PPV from 1996, a 1 hour 50 minute event with only one match.
  8. Missy Hyatt and famous star of Hollywood Tom Hanks John Tatum.
  9. Ronnie O'Sullivan just won the World Snooker Championship for a record-tying 7th time, 21 years after his first world title. Also the oldest world champion at 46.
  10. What WWF PPVs were blacked out in the city they took place? I know for sure that WM3 was, I'm fairly sure WM6 was too. Was WM8 blacked out in Indianapolis? Given they were running a huge stadium at a time the business was down, I suspect it would have been. SummerSlam '92 was effectively blacked out in the UK, not being shown on Sky Sports until a couple of days later (it aired 1 day later in the US). I don't know about Royal Rumble '97, I know they had to paper the hell out of the Alamodome to draw a respectable crowd.
  11. It always looked goofy when WCW would use Alex Wright as a cruiserweight, he absolutely towered over everyone else in the division.
  12. No more scripted promos or choreographed matches. Call it in the ring and cut promos on the fly. Book the shows in the car.
  13. I can't see how Morocco or Cameroon could possibly hold a 48 team World Cup on their own. I also can't fathom any kind of working relationship between North and South Korea lasting for the decade or so between the announcement of the hosts and the tournament itself taking place. Unless things change drastically politically wise in the next few years. I predict Iberian Europe for '30 and China for '34
  14. Man Utd are getting close to finishing the season with a negative goal difference for the first time since the Premier League started (89/90 was the last time). Meanwhile, Tony Khan's Fulham have been promoted to the Premier League.
