The Old School Questions thread

Recommended Posts

The Final Four match was the shit.  I wish they had gone with that format more since they never did elimination four way matches.  They could ditch the top rope thing though.

Since we're supposed to be asking old school questions...

 

 

I know the Scott Keith rumor of Austin winning is BS, but was an audible called on Austin being eliminated early? He looked like he came up limping at a point in the match, spent a lot of time on the mat, and Hart eliminated him pretty easily.  And it seemed odd that the man who caused the whole match to happen in the first place would lose first.

IIRC, Austin went in injured.

An homage to Piper. He started doing it toward the end of his WWE run.

By that point no-one gave a fuck about Jonathan Davis either, so probably not that.

Less time putting on pants equals more time for doing drugs.

Why did Raven start wearing skirts as ring gear a few years ago?

easier to make a skirt fit than to make pants fit

I'm pretty sure it was a William Wallace "battle skirt", if I remember correctly, this was about the same time Raven would randomly paint shit on his face/body. Because drugs.

Oh lord, people are talking about the late 90s like they were a new Victorian era.

 

"Lady Winterbloom's whale tail is the talk of the village!"

"Verily, I daresay she looks like the type to have a tongue piercing"

"Sir! I'll have you know I have a tongue piercing!"

"Then it's true what they say?"

"Y...es"

"Away to the alley with us then!"

 

ETA: It was the "Big Wiggle" officially

According to Bret's book, Austin had a really bad case of the flu. I also remember Austin doing an interview on RAW where he was railing against Vince for making a sympathetic video of Shawn Michaels when he (HBK) hurt his knee but Austin got nothing for going into the Final Four sick as a dog and with a blown out knee. It had the line, "you treat me like a dog and expect me to smile, you remind me of a jackass."

So when I was young, things just seemed to appear and I never really gave them any thought. Earthquake showed up in 89, I didn't realize until mid-90. Diesel showed up in mid-93, I didn't realize until Wrestlemania X even though I remembered his Royal Rumble destruction tour. Bottom line, my young mind did not catch many details and just took them as appearing.

 

With that being said, I'm watching a lot of 1989-1990 WWF and now I'm having questions  that my 3-year-old mind never comprehended, the biggest being how did Sherri join up with Savage? I will have many more questions that I could probably easily find the answers to but I love the vim and vigor I get from you guys on these old school angles. :)

Since Elizabeth stayed in a neutral corner at WMV, Savage dumped her after the show.  On the Brother Love show two weeks after, he then announced he had a new manager, and he brought out Sherri.  That was pretty much all there was to it.

Does anyone have any info on NWO Saturday Night?
 
I noticed in the Wrestler of the Day thread which is Pez Whatley, there's a match between him and Buff Bagwell from NWO Saturday Night where the arena is virtually empty with only some NWO members in attendance like the Giant with the US Title and Syxx who's doing the ring announcer and Ted DiBiase who's the only person sitting in the crowd.
 
There's no fans at the arena or anything.

A Google search brought nothing aside from this:
 

The New World Order (nWo) did their own version of WCW Saturday Night in late 1996 called nWo Saturday Night.

Does anyone have anymore info on this?

It was just a segment during WCWSN.

they usually recorded them before Nitro tapings, as you can see the Nitro ring and entrance set up. they shot it all in black and white, a masked Nick Patrick was the referee, and it was always nWo members vs jobbers.

IIRC that was where we got Nash's infamous "all juiced up and ready to go" comment about Jim Powers.

The NWO was supposed to be an invading force so they bought time on WCW Saturday Night.  WCW actually did a good job with that when the angle started.  The taped promos were accompanied by a paid for statement and the merchandise phone numbers/mailing addresses actually differed from WCW's.

Gotta hate those invading forces that pay you for advertising time. How fiendish.

presumably they'd buy the air time from the network, but yeah.
