  1. That high school spoiling it and tweeting ahead of the show so they could hopefully get a retweet from Hugh Jackman was bullshit though.
  2. We never had any coverage here at the time, I always assumed Alex Porteau was Alex Wright.
  3. Post curtain call: * - lost to Mero at IYH * - lost to Jake on RAW (KOTR Qualifying) * - no contest with Aldo Montoya on RAW * - beat Marty Garner on Superstars (is that the infamous Pedigree that used to be on the filesharing sites?) * - beat Aldo Montoya in KOTR 96 dark match * - lost to Ahmed Johnson on RAW (first televised appearance in a month) * - lost to Mero on Superstars * - beat a job guy on Superstars * - lost to Sid on RAW (IC Title tourney) * - lost to Savio on Superstars * - beats a job guy on Superstars * - lost to Jake (IYH dark match) * - loses to Freddie Joe Floyd on Raw * - loses to The Stalker on Raw * - beats a job guy on Superstars * - loses to Steve Austin at IYH * - beats Mero for the IC title on Raw the next night. He goes nearly six months without beating anyone of note on TV. He loses to The Stalker, and Freddie Joe Floyd. That's a paddling.
  4. That downs syndrome backstage interviewer that WCW used on a couple of PPVs in 1993. Awkward for all concerned, and dropped quickly enough and never referred to again? How? What? Why?
  5. Go old school man: Sting and Benedict Arnold vs. William Regal and King George III HE JUST TURNED ON STING! THIS IS THE WORST WEST POINT DEATH MATCH EVER, KING! ....nah, fuck it, I want to see Sting chase Benedict Arnold down the Hudson.
  6. Hard to tell whats to blame at the moment - given I'm using Unlocator in Australia to access the Network. Have no issues watching on laptop (aside from it always freezing with <10 minutes left on a show) or Ipad. PS3 coverage is shitty as fuck. Hoping it'll improve once I can cut out the middle man, but it gets annoying.
  7. Bray Wyatt and John Wilkes Booth vs. Daniel Bryan and Abe Lincoln.
  8. Turned heel shortly before Luger left.
  9. What if Luger stays in the WWF, and doesn't take the low ball offer from WCW. Him coming out and making the save at Summerslam 95 is weird in the context that Vince thought he was staying. No-one really wanted to see a Sir Mo-Luger feud. Does he turn heel with DBS as well? Feud with DBS? Program with Nash? A god awful Nash/Luger vs. MOM main event at an IYH?
  10. You know what shitted me more than it really needed to? "The Rebel Rack". What the fuck was he was rebelling against exactly? Because when you think anti-establishment, you think Lex Luger.
  11. I just hope we get some wacky vignettes of the Shield meeting Sting in the rafters.
  12. It was a month before the PPV in WCW. I highly doubt it had anything to do with the buildup to that match. He didn't? It was the night after World War 3, when he won the #1 Contendership to face Goldberg. It was definitely part of the build up. Whilst it doesn't really count - Kronik had that small program with Goldberg in the later days of WCW.
  13. They knew that Nash was ending the streak though beforehand. That was the bigger end-game, rightly or wrongly. Not like he didn't (in some form or another) end up having a program with Goldberg anyway.
  14. In hindsight: * - Wrath had most of the offense in that match against Nash. Wasn't a squash per se. He controlled most of the match, then Nash cut him off, hit his finish and it was over. * - Made sense in the context of the bigger story - Nash conquers smaller streak en route to challenging the biggest streak of them all at the time. Just wasn't played up well enough at the time. * - Bigger issue was how little he did afterwards. A nothing feud with Bam Bam. * - Wouldn't have been such a big deal had Nash not been the booker at the time. I really liked him in the WWF too, and thought he was underused.
  15. Does anyone else have a claim to the record of most unsuccessful world title shots on PPV (without winning one) than Davey Boy Smith? * - Rumble 92 * - beats Vader by DQ at Slamboree 93 * - loses to Shawn/Diesel at IYH * - beats Diesel by DQ at IYH * - loses to Bret at IYH * - draw with Shawn at IYH (technically two given the issues with the feed) * - loses to Shawn at KOTR * - loses Six Pack Challenge at Unforgiven 99
  16. Think Bret mentioned it in his book as well, about them being in Japan, and them stopping the tour bus for it to be sorted out. In the context that Andre is forever remembered as a racist, rather than murdered by Hulk Hogan, whilst Bad News becomes Nth America's Invader II is sort of a weird ideal.
  17. What if Bad News Brown not only pulls a gun on Andre the Giant calling him a nigger, but actually blows him away on the tour bus?
  18. I vaguely remember Val Venis helping Austin fend off the Corporation to get a stunner for his troubles also.
  19. As an obese male, I can get a sexy photo with Virgil for only $10???
  20. Matches where guys who were once something, were just shit on. Their big finish no sold, get no offence in, and then maybe even beat down after. Hogan vs. Yoko was a pretty good example of this - kicks out of the leg drop, and gets squashed after the match. Not seen again in the WWF for 9 years. That Warrior beatdown in 1996 before he gets fired at the hands of Camp Cornette is pretty epic too. To some degree, Vader/Koloff might qualify here too. Vader takes all of Koloff's stuff and beats him fairly clean regardless. Never seen as a big deal like that again.
  21. Sir, I respect your lifestyle choices. I would raise its hand to all four corners for a cheap pop, and I would even throw in a few "This guy!" finger points, and I sure as hell wouldn't clothesline it from behind either.
