WWE NETWORK HIDDEN GEMS

Recommended Posts

What a fun little gem. Reading Khawk describe it on PWO had me really wanting to see it and *poof* here it is. Brought me flashbacks to some of the horrible Home Depot meetings I attended. I wish HD had been cool enough to get wrestling at the meetings. Not sure if this is better or worse than the Flintstones/Busch convention. 

As a negative, the Xbox interface is really bad. It took me forever to find this.

What the fudge is this? It's almost as bizarre as PUSH THE BUTTON. I'm also digging the "BAD GUYS" and "GOOD GUYS" signs they put up.

It kind of makes me wonder what other wacky stuff Verne did that we didn't know about.

This is the second reference to "Push the button" and I'm not sure what it refers to. Care to enlighten a fella?

To be honest - I think all the Network interfaces on platforms I use - desktop, XBOX and PS4 - suck

It's in reference to the AWA's Team Challenge Series pilot that was released on the network last November. Wrestlecrap has an amazing write-up on it:

I'm not sure what's more amazing: that they have no consistency between the apps, or that despite having like half a dozen interfaces, they all are deeply flawed.

Old timers like to complain about how heavily scripted promos are these days. But this Kellogg guy is up there with cue cards.

Dale Gagner makes it to the network. Maybe he can launch a frivolous lawsuit for royalties. I'm going to scour the net to look for one of those swank red satin Kellogg's jackets

I have many of those USA specials taped on VHS somewhere in my attic. There's a few standout matches among them.

The match isn't 30 minutes

Austin wrestled two other times during that taping so that 27 minute clip is filled with a lot of nonsense

Phil's downplaying it. It's legitimately 18 minutes with about 6 minutes of entrances (including Lothario getting a nice shout out) and the post match has Lothario trying to cut a promo over the theme music. Match is really good, probably one of my favorite 96 Shawn matches instantaneously.

Matt and I were discussing what they might put out this week, or if they just skipped a week.

Ooh, I've had an unreasonable desire to see that Tito/Shango match literally since I first heard it happened. Not because I think it's likely any good, just because it being a dark match ended Tito's WrestleMania appearance streak and gave Hogan sole possession of the lead. (It's IX not VIII, BTW)

A few minutes of the WMIII press conference was included in the Coliseum Video release. If you have never seen it, the interactions between Bobby Heenan and Mean Gene are incredible.

Oh hey, the Luger with the belt segment and the Razor challenging Goldust segment are both in there as well.

Funny thing about the Piper/Ramon interaction is that Piper indicates he was fighting when Razor was having his diapers changed, but they were only four years apart in age.

EDIT: You have to go to 1984 to find the Luger footage since they messed it up. It's super surreal though. Just a total Vince mindfuck to the sheets or whoever.
