    I remember Cena and Orton getting love in these parts around '05 or '06 or whenever they had their big SummerSlam feud, but I could NOT be fucked into watching. I kinda feel the same way about both of those guys; it's always cool to see what they bring to the table, until you realize there's better reasons to watch wrestling and I think Cena/Orton is a match I've still never seen. 

    Anyone here still like that feud? Seems like those two deserved to main event Wrestlemania together but they never even believed in them that much, did they?

    sadly I was at the iron man match live. Bragging Rights PPV.  And if you remember the Royal Rumble when everyone thought Daniel  Bryan would be in but we got Mysterio instead as number 30 (2014)  yep I was there too.  We also got Cena-Orton with a "Change the channel" chant.   WWE loves to fuck Pittsburgh over.

    This got me thinking, would Rumble 92 still be held in such high regard if it was the exact same match until the finish but Sid or Hogan won? 

    If Sid won I think it would. It would have been Hogan's third Rumble win in a row so to me at least it wouldn't be held in as high regard.  I was 8 when this happened and I remember the day like it was yesterday. It was an afternoon ppv and my friend and I went bowling. He went home and I listened to the event scrambled.  Wanted anyone but Hulk to win.

    Ehhhhhhh… maybe? Did the Arsenio interview happen around this time? 

    I just have this thought that they were thinking the jealous Hogan friend thing would get over no matter what. 

    I think the show was in NYC, or Albany. Sid has always been super over in that area. Hell he even got a massive pop at a house show I went to where he faced Bret in a cage match in 97. Consider how close Buffalo is to Canada and I am still amazed Sid had the bigger pop at the show.

    WCW VHS weren't nearly available like WWF were in the UK. WCW Halloween Havoc 1990 was one of the few with WCW The Great American Bash 1990 and WCW Capital Combat 1990.

    Oddly enough, we also had GAB 1990 at our video store.  One of the very few I was able to see.   Halloween Havoc 90, GAB 90,  and then a few years later Starrcade 89 and Best of Starrcade.  I went to my grandma's once and walked to a video store and went apeshit when I saw Starrcade 90 and Super Brawl 91.    I bought Chi Town Rumble from a store in Erie Pa at a young age.  Also bought Halloween Havoc 89 when I saw it for sale.

    Off the top of my head...

    War Games 1992

    Any Austin/Bret matches 

    Flair vs Steamboat and Funk 89

    Steiner vs Nasty Boys Havoc 91

    Warrior vs Savage Mania 7

    Steiners Vs Nasty Boys was Havoc 1990.  One of the very, very few WCW vhs tapes my video store had when i was a kid. I must have rented it 50 times.   It was so hard to get WCW tapes and when we did they had a ton of matches cut.  I once spent $200 to buy a bunch of WCW ppv's off of Ebay. The guy promised they were PPV versions.


    Nope they were just dubbed Turner videos.  When WWE Network came along I immediately put on Wrestle War 91 and was pleased.  I then relived my childhood.  Loved it even if many of the matches were just there to kill time.

    I finally cancelled Peacock and the WWE network. We still got it through the 8th. Going through my “must watch” matches before it goes. 

    Lawful Jr. and I just watched Magnum / Tully from Starrcade 85. I don’t think there was a single wrestling move done. They busted each other open with punches. PUNCHES. Every time they got on the mic, the guttural way they said “NOOOOOO” stuck with me. The absurdly hard mic shots. Sticking their fingers in their opponent’s cuts. Baby Doll’s reactions. Tully’s arm wound. The stiffest inverted atomic drop I’ve ever seen. The finish. The look of absolute hatred and disgust in himself by Magnum. Holy shit. Full five stars.

    Any other “must watch” I haven’t seen? 

    If you haven't seen War Games 91 it's a guilty favorite.   Ric Flair Vs Butch Reed from Nov 1990 Clash is pretty fun.   Steiners Vs Vader/Hughes from Clash Jan 1992 is one of my favorite matches ever.     These are just a few off the top of my head.  

  7. I know they had the whole Lawler-Hart feud but damn did they have a wide open path to the basket with Lex. The Narcissist would have been perfect in a heel King role.  They  could have given him a brief title reign and then have Bret come in as the hero to take the belt off of him. Could have made a good story.

    Please do.

    little more than half way through. Not bad by any means. I like the concept. The art is kind of getting to me.  I also saw they have the cartoon movie on HBO Max  Thinking of getting HBO Max and checking this out.

    Quick question.  Does anyone know if the Commercial version of HBO Max puts commercials during the movies or just the TV shows?  Is it worth paying the extra $50 to go commercial free?  I want to pay for the year in one payment.   Thanks in advance!!

    Shane was part of the company on/off for forever and the worst you heard about him was he threw shit punches and spent too much time with Johnny Polo. You have to love how they'll bury anyone, including their own on the way out the door. Seriously, what a bunch of savages. 

    For all the nonsense that was Shane McMahon, he was kinda sorta a draw in an environment where all of their special attractions (with the exception of Goldberg) have retired. 

    100% agree.  I was on vacation and remember watching the Raw from Detroit when Shane returned. When is the last time you heard a pop that loud in WWE?!   I dare say it was just below Punk's Chicago return.   

    Never heard anything bad about Shane. If Shane wanted Rollins in the Rumble to boost their feud what harm was it? Neither were likely winning.  Replace an Otis or a Gable with Rollins and I'm sure it would have made sense and who would really care?

    Salvatore Sincere gets over as a lower mid-card gimmick as a stereotypical Italian pizzamaker who pretends to be okay with people's choices of topping, but makes fun of them behind their back for liking Canadian bacon and olives or what-the-fuck-ever. 

    Also, it's mid-'90s WWF, so instead of attacking guys with pizza cutters, he attacks them with a giant side of salami. 

    A Sincere/TL Hopper feud because Hopper clogged up Sincere's dressing room toilet after eating a full Meat Lover's XL pizza and refused to plunge it would be, well, not money, but better than whatever else those dudes were doing in 1996. 

    I could hear Vince now  during a 95 Superstars squash.  "Look at him!! He's beating him with... He's beating him with his meat!!!!!"

  11. There's been a garbage man, a tax man, a police man, but never a pizza man or a delivery man.  Imagine a tag team of UPS type drivers.  Special Delivery could be their names.  

    Growing up we had a judge and his last name was Subject.  We made up a tag team of Subject and Predicate and called them "the Grammar Slammers" their finisher was called  "the fillabuster"    Good times.

    Legit, the Dysfunctional Horsemen were incredibly entertaining. Especially the Jarrett  & Mongo stuff. I’m sure I’ll hit a wall with McMichael eventually, but even with questionable in ring ability, the man still projects so much personality, and natural goofy charisma that makes him more entertaining than your average WCW wrestler from that time period. 

    I would gladly state that this incarnation of the Horsemen can rank third all-time amongst all versions of this group.

    Isn't this also the time when Arn got his pinfall win over Hogan on Nitro as well?

  13. We had an office lunch to take meet the new guy and went to a wood fired pizza place that made a damn good Sauage/Green Peppers pizza.


    I grew up in a town that didn't have any delivery pizza shops. My choices were pretty much Pizza Hut or Domino;s.  When I moved to  a big city and now have 30 pizza shops within 5 mins it was a huge eye opener.   It's strange to me how some have the actual grilled buffalo chicken and others use the Buffalo fries though.

    You directly responded to Sammo's post about Holocaust denial. So either you're lying about not knowing or you don't read the things you're responding to. Which do you want us to believe?

    I didn't know his post was about all of that. Honestly all I saw was the post I told you about. Hell I even private messaged a few of you to apologize  after I read his comments in full.

    Normally I wouldn't give a shit what people believe but I swear to you I did not see the whole story until you mentioned the jews eyes comment.

    Do you think people forgot about PAGE TWO of this thread already?

    I saw people mention halloucast and thought it was WWII he was talking about when he mentioned "history being taught by the winners of the war and sometimes that is an inaccurate depiction"  100% honest.  

    I am willing to bet a lot of people didn't see the full story either. What I did see was posted on Linkedin. I saw it while at work or I would have never known. I also didn't read this whole thread prior to posting.  Again that's on me. 

  16. After reading his comments in full it makes me sick that someone with these views is out there. 

    What I'd seen was that Kendrick said "History is told by the winners of the war and sometimes that is an inaccurate depiction"  I wondered how that could get someone cancelled. I then wondered why so many of you would defend it. I After Dog mentioned Jewish eyes I looked into it and saw what was said and I wish I could take back every post defending him.  It makes me sick that we have people in our society with those kinds of thoughts.

    "Pineapple doesn't belong on pizza" is an opinion. "JEWS STEAL EYEBALLS" IS NOT

    Yeah, holy shit guys. I DID NOT know he said all of this. I honest to god apologize to all of you. I was in the wrong on this one and yeah he shouldn't be in a ring. He needs help. Jesus guys I had no clue there was this much said.  Again I apologize.
