  6. When was the last time Axel or Kofi were actually on Raw?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  8. M: Smack
    F: Warlord
    K: Hawk


    Oh wait, is that not this game?

  9. You mischievous little scamp!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I thought Rybaxel was appearing fairly frequently before Ryback's injury?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I've lost track. Is Big Show due for a face turn or a heel turn?

    ReplyDelete
  12. World title feud as a face.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Working for me. Just slow traffic on the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  14. There was nothing funnier around this time than WWE showing Miz's parents on television and them looking like the biggest pair of white trash that ever white trashed.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Watching the 1986 Houston Summit Show.
    The abbreviated version is on the network.
    There is a negative star Big John Studd vs. Super Machine match here.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great. It's been several months since he last fought Lesnar, so it's fresh again.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Miz's dad is the fucking man

    ReplyDelete
  18. A shame we never got Studd Machine.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Studd vs. Machine is a main event anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was trying to post but it wasn't working.

    ReplyDelete
  21. A newer versions of the Machines would be a nice fit for current day WWE.

    My new Roku 3 was delivered today (delivery on Sunday?). After adding all the channels I'm interested in at this time, and connecting the HDMI, everything looks awesome. One problem I ran into was everything playing in double speed, so everybody on SNME sounded one notch below chipmunk level of speed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Big Show and Mark Henry for starters. Throw in Khali too

    The joke is that we would know who they were.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cleveland's finest.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Saw the AJPW Summer show, there are some good stuff, and some Bad stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That was the joke back then too, right?

    ReplyDelete
  28. So in another "I should have seen this coming" moment in my life, my ex kissed me after a few of us went out for drinks on Friday. She told me to "not look into it" except knowing her, this is going to lead into her having some emotional breakdown down the road if I ever start seeing someone else.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Football it is even though I don't like either team. Either that or Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 3

    With Andre it was obvious. I didn't know that Blackjack Mulligan and Bill Eadie filled out the other roles.

    ReplyDelete
  31. He looks like he lives in a van down by the river.

    ReplyDelete
  32. No such thing as being friends with an ex.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm still good friends with my ex. It's definitely possible.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd love to know how they convinced Hogan to job to Kidman, Vampiro and Mike Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hogan probably knew he had to do some jobs in the new Russo regime to show he was a team player and agreed to job in the unimportant matches, and once Russo thought he could control him, he pulled the same Hogan creative control bullshit when he faced Jarrett for the title.

    ReplyDelete
  36. When it comes crashing down...

    ReplyDelete
  37. He didn't have to.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm sure Luger would have gotten a renewed push had he re-signed. His contract was expiring so that's probably why he was downplayed.

    ReplyDelete
  39. He was hurting people and Vince was going to fire him for hurting Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  40. If it's bad time for Ppv, why did wcw run their Super Bowl Starrcade always in December then?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Tradition, Starrcade was on thanksgiving until the Survivor Series forced it to move to Christmas time, where it stayed. Starrcade was far from thier Super bowl under Bischoff because the number didn't support making it so. Superbrawl and Halloween Havoc were treated as bigger shows. Bishoff said this in interviews.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Jericho got hurt and they took him off television before his contact expired so that might be why his last WCW appearance was months before his WWF debut.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's probably it. But yeah, still odd they didn't hold him off a Nitro in order to get him on the PPV

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nobody fucks like Mike Rotunda.

    Both were horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That's why he's his greatest opponent, brother.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Vince actually isn't crazy as soon as he started showing how jacked he was.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I remember when I was a kid seeing "Title Vacant" in the rankings in PWI and thinking, "How have I never seen these guys??"

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah, Norton was awful. He was legit strong but a terrible worker and rarely sold anything. He was also super protected from jobs do he was actually a hindrance to WCW by hurting the pushes of others.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Who was Scott Norton? Scott even said in his review of the show that it was a big surprise. I had no idea who he was back then so I was always confused why WCW always acted like he was such a big deal and protected him so much.


    He wasn't from WWF or ECW. Was in big in Japan or something?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Lost is easy to explain to people: Everything was magic from a golden river of pixie light. THE END.

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's doing pretty decent business in a good part of town.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No just his first year. He was way better in his WCW run and leaving the WWF was the best thing he could do.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Fuck you Vince for never giving me Shawn vs Bammer.

    ReplyDelete
  56. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 14, 2014 at 8:47 PM

    I agree.

    ReplyDelete
  57. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 14, 2014 at 8:47 PM

    Sorry for the confusion.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yep, LOVED that Luger. '89 Luger is great too. When the guy was motivated he could be one entertaining cunt.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Well this is also the same guy who cried about having his talent raided when he.....

    Hypocrites gonna hypocrite.

    ReplyDelete
  60. He was some guy who got a huge push in New Japan for whatever reason, and WCW brought him in as part of their relationship with them. Because he was big over their, they had to keep him strong, which meant he almost always won. And because he was often in Japan, he never got a sustained angle, either, do he was a big waste of time.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yep. The Savage/Hogan/Sting/Luger dream team loses to the Dungeon at Fall Brawl, due to Hogan & Lex not getting along. Savage & Sting reluctantly dig in behind their respective friend, leading to a babyface-babyface dream match of Sting & Luger vs. Hogan & Savage.

    ReplyDelete
  62. "I'm confused Marge. Was this a happy ending or a sad ending?"

    "It's an ending, that's enough!"

    No worries, I find it amusing that abeyance denotes the absence of a champion, whereas you are perpetually present.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think someone on here a few weeks back mentioned that Time Warner didn't care what WCW did until the Halloween Havoc 98 debacle. That's when they started watching over everything like a hawk.
