  1. live life with the joy of the Warlord after bodyslamming John Tenta
  2. IIRC, wasn't Wendi a heel on Mid-South TV either simultaneously with the beginning of her WWF face run, or really close to the beginning of that run?
  3. well, the one time Brad Armstrong left WCW, he went to a fed that went out of business within months.. so... Meanwhile things that happen when Bill Watts inherits a booking on Lyger: this is a tremendous matchup from the POV of hair though
  4. wonder how quickly they realized that Reggie White couldn't wrestle shirtless in 1997
  5. I wonder if anybody had to veto the concept of making Mongo the 36th member of the NWO sometime post-Hennig turn/pre-Flair return. On one hand, heel Mongo standing a crowd and not working much can't fuck much up. On the other hand, he probably wanted to keep partying with Ric Flair. Also, was the Jarrett run in 96/97 WCW as pointless as it seems in retrospect? But then again, Jarrett really didn't get rolling until they cut his hair in 1998.
  6. 1) somebody is gonna drive this concept directly into the ground 2) we'll see if that happens before we get a good Sabu botch account
  7. The debut really wasn't what stuck out as a "WTF" booking decision (even with the goofy WWF bar cage). The "WTF" decision involved jobbing Show to Austin in Show's first WWF match 6 days before Wrestlemania. Even if they turned Show face post-WM (also a WTF) and put him in a face stable (The Union!), you'd think that having him beat Austin would give them something extra to do with Austin for that Spring, and maybe doesn't lead to them immediately doing Rock/Austin again at Backlash. The consistent theme for Big Show in WCW and WWF/E is that they just kept turning him face/heel every few months. I attended one Nitro and it managed to be a show with a Paul Wight turn (in May 1998).
  8. just watched 1984 Mid-Atlantic focused on the feud between the Tully Blanchard/Wahoo McDaniel(s) alliance against the Superfriends team of Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes. Watching earlier episodes helped show me why a lot of people think Angelo Mosca Jr sucked.
  9. keeps a social distance in acknowledgment of certain board rules Randy Orton is trending on Twitter before Smackdown as he has now become a babyface to a portion of Twitter users. The greatest match ever has become greater.
  10. Thanks Kayfabe magazines for making me realize that yes.. Scott Hall could have been a reasonably plausible 60s/early 70s hippie.
  11. found this looking around Spotify viral charts last night, both bands are German but this is apparently viral in Turkey.
  12. not sure what would be a better troll for the Edge/Orton Greatest Match Ever, teasing the match ending in 30 seconds or having an extended nerve hold sequence in that match
  13. The easy counterpoint is that 1999 WWF wasn't exactly a reservoir of long-term booking
  14. I'm sure this has been known for awhile but I didn't know until tonight that ROH is now on the SInclair-owned Fox Sports RSNs. And boy, did they have great timing to land on a wide assortment of RSNs or what.
  15. Welcome to the ShowBuzzDaily graphic, Dark Side of the Ring 349k viewers, highest ever. #31 in 18-49 for the night. The male 18-49 number (0.24) for DSOTR last night was the same as male 18-49 for the #4 Little People Big World. DSOTR also beat the ESPN replay of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series by 100K. http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-tuesday-cable-originals-network-finals-5-19-2020.html
  16. Another thing about keeping the show going is that they had a world title switch. So there’s an Undertaker title victory that they don’t include on various montages because they had the title switch on a show where somebody died in the ring. Idk if they think it makes their argument for continuing weaker to just audible out of the title switch that night and have it happen on a RAW on 5/31 or June. Like the option is between a title switch that you’ll never show again or holding a total blah card and just getting it over with.
  17. The number of people who knew the exact plan for what would have happened if it went "as planned" is... how many people. Because if the plan was "he needs a quick release so he can do a pratfall" then they pretty much lose the case instantly if they admit that. But the whole thing was a case of Vince being told no and told it was unsafe, then he went to somebody who would say yes to the idea.
  18. Bushwhacker Luke looks younger now than he did in the 90s. Hair dye is a marvelous thing.
  19. the MVP of After Dark is the person(s) that make it possible for these old wrestlers to use a video chat
  20. Hawk could have brought back his Crusher Van Haig robe. of course Ellering might have wanted in on the Ministry to make it a little more complex
  21. Road Warriors got the 2nd highest number of viewers for the season (264k), only behind Benoit. Abrams got 246k. But I'm guessing Owen is gonna top 264k. Worth noting that Wrestlemania 3 on FS1 got 157K over 3 hours last night, so a few thousand of the plausible Vice audience might have been on FS1 during DSOTR.
  22. Also a big nod to the people on Twitter who just learned tonight that Nikita Koloff isn’t a Russian. Next week, they learn about Ivan Koloff.
  23. How long until the WWE has a germaphobe heel. Maybe wears a mask during matches, wears “special gloves” (that are somehow loaded), sprays the general area with “sanitizer”. Considering how few non-Lucha WWE guys wear masks in decades of Vince, he would make the mask guy a heel unless sponsors/networks told him no.
  24. yeah, the main story of somebody at SS92 being unable to perform is Davey Boy.. so Hawk also being similarly messed up was never really focused on
