  1. I forgot how quickly they rushed all the dignitaries away from the front row after that match was over. One thing I did remember from when I watched it was the WCW lack of creativity in naming wrestlers. Bobby Heenan yells "That man has butchered a friendship!" then Tony later yells "This place is coming down like an avalanche!" Then Beefcake was called The Butcher and Tenta was called Avalanche on Saturday Night the weekend after.
  2. Having gone to White Sox games in April for a few years in a row before getting sick at the last one and realizing how dumb of an idea it was, you're very much right about Chicago.
  3. I was introduced to Lance and Dave later on than most by watching USWA wrestling in the mid 90s on WJYS (yes) in Chicago. Even though it was on at 5AM during the school week, I still got up to watch it. Lance as the exasperated parental figure, but at the same time being a fan just like us was such a wonderful thing to watch. I think this clip is a pitch perfect example of it: irritation over dealing with the First Family, disappointment over the mess Lawler was making, but also sneaking in a "WAS kind of funny..." with a snicker at the end of the segment to sell the heel's comeuppance. So good! RIP Lance Russell.
  4. WCW should have had him do more of these type of ad reads.
  5. I had actually thought they were going with the Owen/Bret style "We talked it out over the holidays and things are fine now." type of red herring from Owen's heel turn in '94 for Cass and Enzo. They should do that more.
  6. Tossed in a random videotape to kill some time yesterday and it was FMW from 1998. Anyone know why Kanemura's hockey sweater of choice for a little while was the Peoria Rivermen? I had no idea what it was before, but recognized it after I've been living in central Illinois for the past couple of years.
  7. I may have read his lips wrong, but when Vince was distracting the ref, it looked like he said something like "Now, question number 2..." which makes me want to hear what the actual conversation with the ref was like. "Come here young man, I have a battery of questions I have to ask you...."
  8. Watching old USWA I recorded on WJYS (yes) back in the day. I'm sure anyone who's watched any Memphis has heard the announcement at the very end of the show about the announcers being paid for by the promotion and not the TV station. Anyone know the reason why they had to say that? It may be something about TV rules and regulations, of which I know very little about.. Or could it be to enhance the "sports" presentation possibly? In a similar vein, I vaguely remember Gorilla Monsoon doing the "strictly prohibited" spiel about the imposition of a charge, like they did during baseball games.
  9. Found an interesting hidden gem, a short film called "Every Saturday Night" from the old WTTW show, Image Union, in Chicago. It features some passionate business defending from a young Dusty Rhodes, among others. It's the first one in the show. The whole film is interesting window to a much different time. (Looks like I can't post it, go to mediaburn.org and put in "Every Saturday Night" in the search bar...) RIP Dusty
  10. While watching the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight last night, I was thinking "Floyd is totally taking the ball to right field.", referencing that Cactus Jack ECW promo about he would do things his way and not dance around and be safe to get to 30 without being in a wheelchair. I'm sure if I said that to anyone, they wouldn't know what I was talking about.
  11. Quite the heel ending. Let's hope they're good about pulling the trigger at right time for the heels to get their comeuppance and the babyfaces getting to stand tall... They'll stretch it out over 9 or 10 shows in a row, won't they?
  12. So, I put on an old tape as background noise recently, and and episode of Championship Wrestling from Florida came on (from either '87 or '88). Jack Gregory and Kevin Sullivan were the announcers, and there was one instance of commentary that passed me by after watching it the first time: Gregory: We always get cards and letters, so we'd like to take this time to say hello to the Toffoloni family, big fans of Championship Wrestling from Florida. Sullivan: What, is that some babe that said she'd cut your hair? I know who the Toffoloni family is! I know Maureen said she'd cut your hair sometime! It was a little jarring knowing what eventually happened, but I thought is was a interesting shout out. Any other instances of this? I remember saying a Prime Time clip where Bobby Heenan referenced "his friend Jessica".
  13. Rather than focus on the "HE'S GETTING BERRIED!!" similarities between tonight's Daniel Bryan angle and a similar Zack Ryder angle from a few years ago, I will say that Daniel Bryan is quite the jack of all trades. Not only can he operate a forklift, he can also diagnose what's wrong with a car within seconds of looking under the hood.
  14. "Keep singing, Bray! We're not out yet!" At least he got another line out during Bray Wyatt's Old Tyme Sing Along.
  15. Reality TV tropes aside, the blender scene with Roddy Piper on Legends House was hilarious.
