August Classics: Terry Taylor vs. Tully Blanchard - World Championship Wrestling 8/10/85

I dug around for this one. US title on the line here, and if anyone from the WWE Network is reading (and why wouldn't they be), THIS is Video Vault worthy.


Comments

  1. I maintain that the match Brock and Cena just had is the one they SHOULD have had for Brock's big return. And he should still be undefeated.

  2. Fantastic stuff. Thanks for this.

    D'oh, you're right! Damn it Oprah, they only announce that 25X every show!

  4. Winning the title at Mania means nothing? lolwat

  5. I refuse to believe Terry Taylor ever had a good match.

  6. The fact that the network doesn't have someone whose job it is to search youtube and daily motion for the matches with the most views and comments and ratings and then throw those up in the video fault....then get the youtube and motion sites to shut them down..boggles my mind.

    Just watched some SummerSlam highlights. Amazing to me how EVERY Shield member got an attire downgrade after the split.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like Ambrose attire. Reigns looks like a laser tag player and Rollins is wearing a leather version of Triple H's 1996 attire.

    ReplyDelete
  9. He had a whole career before he became wrestling poultry. He was the top babyface in several territories.

    The SWAT gear was cool, but I also dig Rollins' sleeveless Winter Soldier-ish get up

    They're funny cause they're true

    ReplyDelete
  12. For as much of a douche as Terry Taylor appears to be, he was a good wrestler.

    Spent do much money on that one at the card (I'm talking $20 at a time)...then the N64 version came out. Then the Dreamcast version came out. Co-op Legends was the shit

    ReplyDelete
  14. Reigns attire has changed from black, to blue, then to yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It all depends which laser tag team he's playing for that night.

    ReplyDelete
  16. As much nostalgic fondness as I have for Mr. Nanny and Suburban Commando, objectively I probably do have to give the edge to Tooth Fairy and Game Plan. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch any of them at this point, though.

    ReplyDelete
  17. All he needs now is a backstage segment where he's hanging out with NPH as Barney planning a laser tag strategy.

    Ambrose needs to bring back the black wifebeater. He has shades of Jamie Noble in the grey and white, and not in a good way. He looks more like "Psycho killer ex-boyfriend" than "Cool but unbalanced current boyfriend"

    ReplyDelete
  19. TM CooltrainerBretAugust 29, 2014 at 1:28 PM

    What if he retweeted his alt accounts?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Everything was a downgrade after the turtlenecks.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Another one for the video vault? Blanchard v Ronnie Garvin for the TV title, which took up the entire hour. That match was boss.

    I like Dean and Seth; don't like Roman.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think his look is fine. And he wears streetclothes backstage, which is a nice touch.

    Speaking of Ambrose, I never would have guessed he had so much potential as a face. I pegged him as a top-level heel with his VERY punchable face (I mean that in the best possible way), but man his comedic timing is really good, too. "What? It's for charity!"

    ReplyDelete
  24. 3 days later and I still can use the WWE Network even though my account is expired!

    You have seven days left.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Eh, I thought SvR 06-08's controls were better. The grappling system they introduced in '07 was pretty good but they never fully fleshed it out and eventually scrapped it altogether.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yet he's an American born in Michigan. It makes him seem really suspicious.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I loved the first DoR and played it NONSTOP, but DoR2 had the most frustrating AI I've ever dealt with in a wrestling video game - in particular, tag matches were just unbearable because the other guy's partner would break up any strong grapple you did. Plus, the soundtrack and presentation were total crap compared to the first.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Man this clip just makes me pissed off this show isn't on the network.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lol @ Rock mistaking Hornswoggle for a make a wish a kid and then laughing about it/not caring when Big Show told him he was on the roster. Now I guess they have "heat."

    ReplyDelete
  31. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 29, 2014 at 1:45 PM

    Did you see that they snuck in a Nitro? I posted a link in the daily update thread. It's the second episode with Hogan vs. Luger.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Woah, I just pulled up your comment. That's s great sign then. Hopefully they dump a bunch on (and more draws)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Rock vs. Hornswoggle - WM XXXI

    ReplyDelete
  34. So Brodus Clay was right about Hornswoggle being a prick after all.

    ReplyDelete
  35. MikeyMike, WitnessAugust 29, 2014 at 1:58 PM

    YEah, apparently that's going to be your "Free" 10 day trial period.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yeah, the guy was on Nash Bridges for crying out loud. He definitely would have done SNL.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Normally I side with the "victim" in back stage stuff but...you are hornswaggle...he is the rock...suck it up and move on.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yeah, Hornswoggle should be grateful he even has a job well past his expiration date of 2007.

    ReplyDelete
  39. while he still has the job he certainly should not be talking shit about the guy that everyone everyone has a legit reason to bow down to if he so chooses to ever grace their company again for a match and a big payday for everyone involved.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You kind of have to be a prick if you are his size in a WWE locker room. People would walk all over him if he couldn't stand his ground.

    ReplyDelete
  41. He'd actually do a much better job of it today than he would have 15 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ambrose is okay. Could be better, but he makes it work. Reigns is wearing some god awful thing that they need to get him out of ASAP. And Rollins just looks like Snake Pliskin from Escape from LA minus the eye patch.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yeah, I didn't think Ambrose as a face was a good fit, but he is making it work by being unlike so many other smilin' babyfaces on the roster.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm sorry, a bit of hyperbole. Let me elaborate. Being a star and headlining wrestlemania ($$$) means more than winning the title. Winning the title is a very big deal if we're in kayfabe mode.

    ReplyDelete
  45. They would all shit in his little bag.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Aldon Smith suspended 9 games!!!!!!!!!! Omg this is bad....FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOU NFL

    ReplyDelete
  47. Who would you have beat an undefeated Brock?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Read a recap of Sabu's '97 ECW timeline...SA-FUCKIN'-BU is afraid of heights?! That's like finding out Santa hates snow.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wait, you think Brock should've beaten Cena at Extreme Rules? What a unique and groundbreaking opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  50. As we all know, Vince is always right.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Exactly. John Cena already terrorizes the guy enough each week by stealing his beach towel and showing it off to the audience and camera on Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  52. He misses the New Orleans game too... YES!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Never Give Up

    ReplyDelete
  54. One of my favorite quotes about wrestling is from Nash: " wrestling is work, but when they put that belt on you, it's a shoot."

    ReplyDelete
  55. That isn't the point.

    ReplyDelete
  56. "Grown man dressing like a kid?"


    ...Cena?

    ReplyDelete
  57. did he beat up 4,5 women?

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's easy to say shit retroactively.

    ReplyDelete
  59. He had great matches after as well, he and Bobby eaton got to 4 stars at Halloween Havoc 1991.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Guy is an idiot and a screw up. Equal parts talented and jackass.

    ReplyDelete
  61. please that would get him like...4 games He must have smoked pot.....in San Francisco...

    To quote one of my favorite songs, that boy needs therapy

    ReplyDelete
  63. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 29, 2014 at 3:04 PM

    Same, he's killing it and the street clothes add to the Loose Cannon persona. The ice bucket thing was pretty funny

    ReplyDelete
  64. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryAugust 29, 2014 at 3:04 PM

    De Gas

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love Ambrose's rolled-outta-bed look, it fits his personality to a T. I'm just waiting for Seth Rollins to throw in a line about how he had to make sure Dean dressed himself properly as a Shield member.

    ReplyDelete
  66. My first thought. Goodell did the right thing for a change

    ReplyDelete
  67. My first thought was Goodell fucked up by giving too many games.


    But I guess he learned from his mistake, so SF gets the first hit.


    Aldon, I got some BAD NEWS...

    ReplyDelete
  68. I like that they fined the Seahawks for what amounts to trying hard, the NFL where GUYS can be GUYS and do GUY things and get FINES for being GUYS, fuck yeah.


    Utter shit establishment for an utter shit sport. Enjoy it while you can boys, another few years and pulling your kid out of Grid Kids will be a cultural movement.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Jim Irsay deserves help.


    Aldon Smith deserves the worse.


    NFL is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  70. They should have broken out the shields after the disbanding.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Virgil's Gimmick TableAugust 29, 2014 at 3:42 PM

    Pushing Reigns over the other two is like when they had Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart on the roster, but they gave the belt to Diesel for a year because of his great hair.

    ReplyDelete
  72. He loves CAPS LOCK more than my aunt.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Inside Barstool joke.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Tully was a fantastic douchebag heel, but he could also wrestle; even a basic match like that, and he holds on to the title while making Taylor look good.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hey UFC just tweeted tune in to espnnews for breaking ufc news...anyone know whats up?

    ReplyDelete
  78. UFC front pages says weigh-in for tomorrow's fight. 2 women I never heard of.

    ReplyDelete
  79. MFK
    Babydoll
    Precious
    Sunshine

    A). Then


    B). Now

    ReplyDelete
  80. Was this pre-Horsemen or just after the formation .

    ReplyDelete
  81. Stranger in the AlpsAugust 29, 2014 at 8:07 PM

    Pre-Horsemen. Tully fires Baby Doll and joins JJ Dillon. The Horsemen form in the fall of 85, I believe.
