  1. Josh Thomson claiming the referee robbed Pico by stopping the fight was hilarious. I am not the biggest John McCarthy fan, but thank God he didn't entertain that foolishness.
  2. I saw Angela Lee trending all night while I was working. I also saw Xiong say something in the post fight presser about Chatri saying that Angela Lee won. Oh, good old fashion judging drama.
  3. Dude wants the smoke with everyone and hasn't even had an official UFC fight yet.

  7. No that was very real. He had it taped to his finger and accidentally zipped his arm as he was taking his robe off. That just made it strange. Also exposed the shit out of the business. I'm guessing if you tape a shard of a razorblade to your finger, you would want to be as lucid as possible and not high as a kite like Kerry would be.
  8. IIRC our Movie Gallery and the local video store ran by my brother's best friend's mom had the most gaps chronologically between WWF and WCW releases that I pretty much rented the same tapes as a kid until I was much older.
  9. You can pretty much tell they use the beginning of the first match and then at some point they switch to whatever they did in try #2. The fans suddenly don't really give a damn about the match and Macho definitely looks like he has been wrestling more than a five or six minutes. For a world title match, there is exactly zero atmosphere.
  10. I would rather have Owen somehow finagle his way to winning the WWF title finally rather than doing what they did to Backlund. If anyone deserved a short transitional title reign, it would have been Owen for how well he performed in the program with Bret. They wanted another Hart brother in that role, and Owen proved Bret right for picking him. Going back to what I said about Survivor Series 92 sucking....it seems like Vince was just doing random shit. I know Bruce comes back in September right after Summerslam 1992, but the promotion is teetering on chaos. They luckily back doored their way into Scott Hall killing it as Razor Ramon and the Great Kokina coming in after a pretty good run in Japan and Mexico. Seriously, Yoko's squash matches when he came in were awesome. He moves pretty damn well for a man his size and all his stuff looked great. Anyway, it just felt like a rudderless company for the most part. The Savage -> Flair title change was just bizarre. The way they edited it was the most Frankenstein'd mess you're ever going to see from the top wrestling company. I believe the reason for the switch was Randy going through his divorce and all that came with that.
  11. I believe Bret's first title win was at a Superstars taping, but it was a dark match that ended up on a random Coliseum video release. That is the weird thing. It got treated as though it happened at a house show.
  12. According to ole Bruce, that was JR's idea. The corny truck pun dialogue they gave him was the 2nd biggest disservice. I wonder what would have happened had they let Nash do what he did after Survivor Series 1995 earlier where Diesel turned into Mr. I Don't Give a Fuck which is essentially Kevin Nash.
  13. I believe the biggest disservice he did to Nash was switching the belt at the house show at MSG. I get what they were trying to do, but an important moment like that needs to happen on television. I know they replayed it a billion times, but I think it would have helped Nash greatly if it was on television live. We would still be talking about that moment had it happened on TV. As is, we just had to accept Diesel was WWF champion. No clean transition or anything. By the time the fans finally warmed to Diesel being champ and the whole Big Daddy Cool, his run as champ was winding down.
  14. Hogan at least wanted to try his luck with Hollywood though. He wasn't going to be able to do that on a full time WWF schedule. Moreover, his shadow looms too large if he just shows up every now and again as a featured player. I believe Vince thought there was no way Hogan would ever sign with WCW, which had it not been for Ted's love for wrestling, would have been dead. It would be like if Cena went to Hollywood, it doesn't go well, and he signs with Impact. The timing and Hogan's lack of success elsewhere lined up perfectly with Eric becoming Executive Vice President and then being able to sell Hulk on doing a pretty comfortable schedule for great money.
  15. I just watched the Raw from September of 1993 where for "one night only" they brought back Snuka to wrestle the great Paul Van Dale aka the guy who gave the world Carmella. Snuka was 50, and I'm guessing hard up for money. If he thought 40 was over the hill...
  16. It's clear that once Hogan was gone, they wanted to clean the slate and move on the next era. However, it's clear that they couldn't stick with that edict. Based on Bruce's STW episode on Survivor Series 93, they definitely thought they had something with the Borga character and Halme. What it was....I am not sure. It didn't really resonate with the fans and Halme's work was not good. Maybe five months isn't a great sample size, but there wasn't much hope in that time Borga could actually do something worthwhile.
  17. No, I understand that part. However, before Del Ray gets hurts the next year and I believe Del Ray also runs afoul of the office, the Bodies are pushed way above just being part of that co-promotion. By the time Jim gets there in August, outside Money Inc which lasts for all of a few weeks longer, all the tag teams from 1991 and 1992 are gone. The Bushwhackers are still around but they were a novelty act. So clearly bringing in the Bodies was mutual to help out that tag team division. They didn't really bring in anyone else and bill them as SMW stars. I mean they allow Jim sell his injuries from his storylines in Smoky Mountain and the tag belts show up for a little while, that's basically the extent of the co-promotion as it comes to WWF television or PPV. That said, I'm assuming they thought people knew who Rock N Roll Express was and didn't think it needed anymore build. I believe they do a couple matches on like All-American wrestling and the other syndication programs. As Cornette tells it, bringing them in was his idea. However, he says it was terrible idea to do it in Boston.
  18. If you didn't know better, based on the responses, commentator/part time worker Randy Savage is by far the biggest star in the promotion followed by Taker and then Yoko and maybe Bret as 3b to Yoko's 3a or vice versa. It's dire in terms of star power. Once Hogan is done and only really doing the overseas tours and you get a bunch of exits as the years goes, it's clear they don't have the star power or depth to do a three hour PPV. Summerslam 1993 is an alright show (first two matches good, the middle drags massively including the Hart/Lawler stuff which seems to go on forever, Taker/Giant Gonzalez stunk to high heaven, and the title match was alright for what it was). Survivor Series 1993 is just a bad show. To be honest, Survivor Series 1992 kinda stunk as well and was probably too affected by the amount of turnover and turmoil in the company.
  19. There is an alternate timeline where he somehow is a member of the Truth Commission (hell, Mantaur was member at one point...unfortunately not as Mantaur) and later on DOA. So much untapped racism there. That late era of Coliseum video before WWF went their own way with WWF Home Video is sort of lost in time. I have absolutely no memory of that. I am sure it happened but those releases stop meaning as much later on. Outside of gems like the Harts (Bret and Owen) vs. the Steiners right before Owen fully turns heel, the amount of filler on those releases is unbearable. You get stuff like heel Shawn vs. heel Skinner (shortly before Keirn fades into being the other Doink when Borne feuds with Crush) in a seven minute match where Skinner takes 90 percent of the match. Just some bizarre stuff that should have been left as dark matches.
  20. I love that despite his deep, uncompromising love for saving the environment he looked like the live action version of a Captain Planet villain.
