  1. 87 at the latest no? What year was Hayabusa’s?
  2. BPP was awesome in TNA. Jim Cornette was good to. Sting accidentally bleeding buckets every week was good to. Much like WCW though, they didn’t know what to do with good things that happened on purpose or by accident. Here’s the full version of this. I’ve listened to this dozens of time now and I really think Luger says the F word lol!
  3. Early botch and a nice recovery by Schultz here, pointing out a movie foul by Sgt Slaughter. He hardly keeps it together after that but the result is still great lol!
  4. https://imgflip.com/gif/3rcbi1 I haven’t embedded something in so long lol I just popped in to say that I caught this last night and thought it was cool. The fans were foaming for it and when he did it they couldn’t believe it. From what I hear this is the first time they’ve 1) done something that extreme in a while and 2) got that kind of a reaction extreme or not.
  5. I admire the shit out of David Schultz. There were alot of guys out of his mold whose career ended because of that type of a fuck up and they just pissed away. He kept it together and made a life for himself. That Nancy Sullivan pic is creepy for a different reason I’ve mentioned before (but not since their death I don’t think and probably shouldn’t now).
  6. Also I don’t think “fire” is the thing that Bret didn’t have that kept him from wrestling in the NWA or WCW. He might have lacked fire in some situations, but only because he knew a trash heap when he saw one and he just flat out wasn’t 1 to work under disorganized circumstances. The 1 exception is obviously WCW at the end but that didn’t exactly last and that was a desperate reach anyway, and his last. I loved the NWA but on it’s best day it was never as organized as the WWF. And WCW lol yeah right.
  7. Michael Hayes had IT. 1 of the most underrated guys ever imo. I don’t have all of those dates organized in my head but I think the original Von Erichs/Freebirds feud goes unaffected. Then obviously the second feud doesn’t happen. Unfortunately I don’t know if much changes for the Von Erichs. The territory perhaps dries up without even being salvaged for that short while with Jarrett without the second Freebirds feud to keep it alive. Piper was great but when he lost it in the ring it was a pretty drastic change, not like some of the others from his mold who slowly lost it and worked around it. I could see his career being similar to most guys like him who didn’t get the break in the WWF. A WCW life in limbo, a guy who bounced around, who knows. He’s the wildcard in this what if.
  8. Has this ever been posted here? It’s not the best promo but it could be argued that it was the first BPP promo. I thought this wasn’t in existence similar to the infamous Terry Funk burn incident. Obviously somebody had it on some tape at home.
  9. Man that’s a goodun! That promo could have been plugged in any time Arn Anderson was scheduled to do an interview for the rest of his life. It was his life as a Horsemen in a nutshell. And what a cool shirt. I wonder if there are any left anywhere.
  10. Next question how were so many Post Disco, P-Funk etc songs perfect for southern rasslin lol
  11. I don’t claim to remember this but I think I remember this music from somewhere. Any info on it would be appreciated. Literally any...name, production company, where else you heard it etc as I think this might be from another weekly wrestling show that I used to watch but can’t figure out the name of. It’s been 1 of the things I’ve been trying to figure out the most since growing up and trying to piece together these good memories.
  12. That. Was. Awesome. That was some of the last good Saturday night wrestling we ever saw. Good main event, good for TV but nothing wasted that should have been on ppv or whatever. Had a TV sized storyline to it and everything. Then they found a way to use the match to promote the ppv without sacrificing the match (something they were bad about doing later on). That was WW3 Sting came back right? I’d say that show delivered.
  13. On a different but related note about live action, the gig I worked last night was Styx singer Dennis DeYoung and considering his age and the nature of this show I wasn’t expecting much. It was moved to the nightclub because the park got rained out. Wrong again! He f****** rocked!!!!!! It sounded just like the old band, funny keyboard sounds and all. And he made a bunch of funny jokes in between songs ???
  14. I recently learned about the Clash of Champions opening riff being used for some video game in the 2000s. YouTube was still burning up with comments from angry fans who want it on a Clash DVD set. The Clashes used the main melody as the theme and it was perfect. Gave me goosebumps when I heard it years later. Perfect music for a rasslin show. So anyway in the meantime people were obsessed with all these themes for years and it turns out they were somewhere in perfect quality for pennies while we were ripping them from VHSs lol!
  15. The Blue Meanie thing holy crap I forgot that was on this show. Spawned 1 of the greatest shoots ever if nothing else (Smothers). It’s on my list of things to watch. I was lucky enough to see Awesome/Tanaka TNN match live at ringside. Mike Awesome’s finisher on a another giant was probably the coolest single thing I ever seen live. That was a hell of a show, and by main event time (this match) I thought O I’ve seen this before, it’ll be good but we might ought to go home and beat the mob. Wrong...they killed it on a show that had a Balls Mahoney match with fire, tacs, and the biggest chairsshot ever. Super Crazy almost killed himself on a table leg, Dusty Rhode’s return to Tallahassee, and a ton of other good matches.
  16. I recently listened to this and that was 1 of the few times Cornette didn’t make alot of sense lol! So we’ll probably never know the answer to this one.
  17. I’m looking for another theme out of this mold. It was an 80s sounding guitar driven theme that somehow got played all over the place in the 90s, not just WCW. The only thing I can name it being used for though was Mike Awesome’s first WCW theme. It was WCWSN jobber music before then and promo music a time or 2, and I heard it here and there out in the world. I’m positive it was Mike’s first WCW theme for a few weeks.
  18. I haven’t seen ECW ONS. I am aware that there are many fans of the show. Heat was off the charts for the whole thing. In spite of the forgettable matches, it basically delivered through the no BS promos alone the way I hear it. Did Eddie and Chris even wrestle in ECW? Dean would have been everybody’s pick for an Eddie match. Chris’s match might have a few wildcard picks but I would think everybody would have wanted Al Snow. If I were to make a dream WCW card that would be where Eddie and Chris happened. Those guys were WCW TV. They had more dang good WCW TV matches than Ric Flair had good headlining matches against Dusty, Barry and Ricky Morton combined lol! My favorite was the 1996 match with the armdrag sequence. Only Benoit could make an armdrag stiffer lol! And Eddie went through them like lightning.
  19. I liked how JR introduced/acknowledged Gary Capetta, just as serious and legit as he did a wrestler he believed in - The World’s Most DAAYNGEROUS Announcer Gary MICHAEL Capetta!
  20. I obviously understand Malenko but I always thought that had everybody else did business right that night, he would have to. You had Hogan up and quitting, Nash, and Raven. So Malenko said f*** it me to I’m ready to go home and see my youngun. None of those guys have ever admitted it but they were all in in WCW until that night.
  21. Yep lol Malenko wasn’t into it as his wife was in the hospital or something IIRC
  22. Luger was great. There definitely was something about that finger lol! I have a few positive minority opinions about the guy myself but I should probably quit while I’m ahead.
  23. Overshadowed by the single worst show, match and moment in wrestling history imo - Starrcade 97
  24. Thunder in Paradise and a made for TV movie he was in I think.
