  2. I finally listened to that Everlong song. I have heard it before.

  3. After watching the 1955 clip a few posts ago, this amazing Dick the Bruiser promo ripping Bruno Sammartino is amazing:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULHvxEtkoO0

    This is like classic wrestling promo 101. Talking trash? Check. Flexing for the camera? Check. Racist comments? Check. Bragging about how much he can drink? Check?

  4. I always thought that the song I Hear You Calling was Foo Fighters, that was the Foo Fighters song that I knew.


    Turns out that's not Foo Fighters at all. It's some other band called Gob. Who knew?

    Just finished watching the 2005 One Night Stand PPV (Happy Valentine's Day!!!), and something really bothered me (other than removing Enter Sandman from Sandman's entrance, which is not a surprise):


    When Heyman "shoots" on the WWE Invaders in the balcony, those guys completely no sold everything. Now, you can do it funny, like JBL did imitating Red Foxx, but Edge and Bischoff just completely brushed it off like nothing. Very unsatisfying.


    Also, for all the talk about how bad Mix's figure four leglock is/was, Sandman putting one on one of the Dudleys was downright sad.


    Otherwise, I love this show.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Watching WM 8. The first 3 months of 92 are just a sick fucking stretch of wrestling. Rumble, Clash 18, the Fox SNME, SuperBrawl 2, WM 8, and WrestleWar.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Edge's spit take at the Matt Hardy line was awesome, though.

    ReplyDelete
  10. It's snowing! And I might go snowboarding later!

    Black man on a snowboard! Breakin' stereotypes, mother fucker!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. The storyline was that they thought ECW was shit and didn't take it seriously. It made sense for them to no sell it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sting vs. Luger is one of those let-down matches for me. Knowing what I know now and how Luger was on his way out and didn't care, it still kinda sucks that the match was blah since the rivalry was built up.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The rest of the show was awesome tho so it didn't really matter much.

    ReplyDelete
  14. How pumped must have Flair been to be wrestling in front of 70 thousand or so after years and years wrestling in front only a few thousand for WCW?

  17. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:36 AM

    I know it made sense, but so would them getting them pissed off at having some of that stuff said to them. They didn't need any more heel heat that night. And showing a little anger from Heyman's comments would be a better lead in to the giant brawl that ended the show than just laughing it off.

    ReplyDelete
  18. When even Van Hammer/Zenk vs Vinnie Vegas/Morton is a good match, you known you're in for a great show.

  19. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:39 AM

    The fans in the Hammerstein Ballroom chanting "What" during Austin's promo proves that they are just as much WWE fans as ECW ones.

  20. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:40 AM

    You should check out the JBL alternate commentary on the DVD, it's fucking hysterical.

  25. There has always been a ton of crossover between the two but I think that particular instance was more them being Austin fans.

  26. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:43 AM

    I hate that damn chant.

  27. Now it sucks but when it first started, it led to some pretty funny Austin promos.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:45 AM

    Yeah, he's mic'd up and getting hammered throughout the show, it's great, they need to let him get bombed on Raw. Best part is the main event, where he's so shitfaced that he forgets he's supposed to be trashing the show and starts getting into the match. At least until the Blue Meanie shows up.

  29. Yes, happy Valentine's day

  34. But the sandman is a stuntman who can't wrestle. The miz has shown he's competent in the ring. Either way though - the figure 4 is so easy to apply it's amazing either of them could screw it up

    ReplyDelete
  35. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:50 AM

    There's a lot of stuff on WM9 that is easy to enjoy. Maybe not a technical masterpiece, but it isn't terrible, either.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's fun. Way more than than 2, 4 or 5 to sit through.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:51 AM

    That show would be looked on a lot more favorably had the last 2 minutes not happened, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:52 AM

    As a fat kid who could barely run a 1K, I had no problems putting on a figure-four when wrestling with my friends.


    Now that I think about it, though, Sandman was probably drunk. Makes it a bit harder to do the move right...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the look of WM9, especially seeing how there's barely a visible difference between a PPV, a RAW and a Smackdown nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:55 AM

    Just read the description for SuperBrawl 2 on the Network and dear sweet wounded baby Jesus is that show fucking stacked. There was no way Sting-Luger could ever dream of topping that undercard in the Main Event.

  41. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 9:56 AM

    Is that the show with the insane Pillman/Liger match?

    ReplyDelete
  42. And if there hadn't been so many DQ/Countout finishes on the show. There were at least 3 by my count (2 of which were title matches).

  45. Really liked the 90's vote for song of the Nation!!! BrianD -great job on that!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. With equally insane double Dangerous Alliance tag matches and a great forgotten swerve in the Rude/Steamboat match. By my count, it has 4 ****+ matches.

    ReplyDelete
  47. And here is Kane helping him to find the brass ring : http://i.imgur.com/gCzhi7u.gif

    ReplyDelete
  48. What if: At the end of 8, instead of Warrior running down to make the save, it is Sting.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Even so, that Sting/Luger match was flat as fuck. Maybe it is what happens when everyone knows the champ is leaving.

    ReplyDelete
  50. He gets really into the Awesome/Tanaka match, too. He was marking out by the end.

  62. All this WM9 talk has me seeking out pre-WWF Yoko. Here he is jobbing to Ron Simmons in Ron's UWF debut.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I thought it was a pretty awesome finish. The heel gets his comeuppance via his own tactics. Macho was in trouble and his leg was shot so he hooked the tights to win. Totally something Flair would've done so he got the tables turned. Poetic justice.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 10:07 AM

    Yep. He talks about wanting to bang the beer girl in the ass too, and makes numerous comments about ECW fans being a bunch of homos.

  69. D'Lo won the shoot poll by one vote over Butch Rewd

  70. I'd disagree with that. He was still good for the first half of 1991. I'd say he stopped giving a shit when he won the title.

  72. Ricochet was the first FNM song I ever heard.

    ReplyDelete
  73. absolutely. Solid worker until he won the belt and turned heel. Just totally went to Hell. Some of it might be a character thing like 95/96 Goldust where he was stalling to get heel heat and further the character, but he put on some real shit matches as champ.

  75. I might revisit the Yoko thing later, but youtube is acting up for me right now.

    ReplyDelete
  76. He looked like he was working hard in that Simmons match but he probably knew he was leaving at that point. The year layoff is the real reason he got bad.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I am rooting for Marco tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Completely agree. If Savage wins the title via flying elbow, does it have the same impact?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I've always been hoping a group like this existed. It's the most fun you'll have with Vince's cartoon-on-crack perception of wrestling before we hit the dregs of the New Generation.

    ReplyDelete
  81. That's good stuff. I love those songs like Cuckoo where I'm convinced the band were just a LITTLE disappointed that their awesome instrumentation had to be buried under Patton making goofy voices and yelling lines like "Shit lives forever cos shit lives forever!". There's not enough batshit crazy in modern rock.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Yep, it's a lot darker and more visceral than Ocarina. The real-time aspect adds a lot of urgency to the gameplay.

    ReplyDelete
  83. He had to be gutted that he was probably told he was the next Hulk Hogan for years and then finally gets the belt and his character is changed to cowardly racist heel.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Ha, yeah Patton is a crazy fucking guy but he can sing when he wants to. I saw his side project, Peeping Tom, at Coachella 2007. They were really good but like you said, sometimes Patton would do crazy shit like just start rapping through a megaphone.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Sid punking out Beefcake and destroying the barber shop is awesome. Especially if you pretend that the white shit on his face is blow.

    ReplyDelete
  86. And the bigger question, if that had happened, what would they done at Suvivor Series a few months ago?

    Seriously though, that would have been pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I liked some of that Peeping Tom stuff. Mojo was super cool, and there was one song on the album at the end, I forget what it was called, but it was TOTAL Faith No More.

    ReplyDelete
  88. This is total 90s alt-rock day. Me and Marv were gassing about the Pumpkins for an hour earlier

    ReplyDelete
  89. You were prob thinking of We're Not Alone. Although Don't Even Trip also has an FNM vibe too. I love the line, "well I know that assholes grow on trees but I'm here to trim the leaves."

    ReplyDelete
  90. Rocket is my fave Pumpkins song.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ric Flair on why fans hate Reigns:

    “I don’t pay a lot of attention to him talking on the mic but I think he’s okay. Fans look at Roman and they want him to sound like The Rock and that isn’t going to happen. The Rock didn’t become The Rock overnight either though. It took him a few years as well to nail down who he was and what he was about.”


    This might be true, Ric, although I don't think fans want Reigns to be like the Rock, they just want him to be interesting. More importantly, Vince didn't push The Rock to the main event of WrestleMania 1997 or even 1998.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Ric will always defend anything WWE does.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Dudes, today is Valentine's Day... meaning, it's your day to mess up. You are being judged. Also, it's more like Valentine's weekend... and it's a weekend that starts Thursday afternoon.

    So if you didn't do anything Thursday afternoon, and then something else Friday night, with something else planned for Saturday...

    ... you already messed up. Start planning for next year.

    ReplyDelete
  94. It made him look that much crazier.

    ReplyDelete
  95. By the way, can we also maybe agree that since Smackdown has moved to Thursdays and Daniel Bryan has been the main focus, THAT show has been pretty outstanding as well? I just watched last week and that Bryan/Reigns Turmoil match was just an hour of great stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Well, you know he needs the money so he'll say whatever he has to keep the WWE checks coming. WHOOOOO!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Bayless mentioning that D'Lo won the poll made me think of Droz so I googled to see how he was doing.

    Found this article written by Jim Ross about two months ago.

  102. Anything involving Kane or Big Show tempers my excitement and enthusiasm for anything.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Totally. Didn't Matthews and Roadie do a segment on their YouTube show making fun of it? I think it was crazy effective for the angle.

    ReplyDelete
  104. It told a great story and Reigns showed some personality, which is a positive.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Yeah, this is silly. Reigns hasn't done anything remotely interesting since the end of The Shield.

    ReplyDelete
  106. The first half of the card is pretty decent if unspectacular. There's only really that Undertaker/Gonzales suck-fest to suffer through before *that* main event which still manages to be better than Miz v Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yeah, those are three of the ones that I had in mind. Especially 4. Jesus.

    Someone actually said the above to me, and he was dead serious.

    Thing is, take out the anti-Semitic part and add in chocolate and flowers and he's pretty much right.

    ReplyDelete
  110. It might not feel like Wrestlemania in terms of it lacking 'OMG' moments of wrestling, but it's got that luxurious, "look at all the money!" feel that modern PPVs never, ever have.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Your campaign to replace anti-semitism with chocolate and flowers is very appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  112. From the moment Vince growls "Caesar's Palace... Las Vegas, NEVADA..." that show gets you pumped up. It's a fun, easy show to watch, and it's only when it's over do you realize "hey--that was kinda shitty!" I think most of the hate comes from the Hogan ending.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'm thinking about Owens winning the NXT via TKO. When was the last time any WWE title changed hands on a TKO? I'm surprised it hasn't been used more often instead of some of the nonsensical screwjob ways titles have changed hands over the last 20 years.

    ReplyDelete
  114. From the actual match to the post-match interviews, that's probably the best 30-45 minutes of pro wrestling ever.

    ReplyDelete
  115. There's an actual purpose to the show and you almost need to watch to get caught up with everything. Plus, TWO HOURS

    ReplyDelete
  116. Flex Kavana had charisma Roman will never touch. It's a gift. What troubles me is Ric saying right off the bat he doesn't pay attention to what Reigns says. That is a huge red flag; this isn't like how Gene Anderson could tell if a student was doing a backdrop correctly without looking. If Reigns isn't drawing in a guy like Ric he is not ready.

    ReplyDelete
  117. After Shawn and Jericho discussed Vince's confusion over their TKO finish to their match in 2008, I'm not surprised.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Yes they did. I'm waiting for Are You Serious to surface on the Network.

  120. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 10:45 AM

    I can't even think of the last WWE match of any kind that ended that way. Does Bret/Austin count? Though I'm sure there's been at least one more since then.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Huh. I have their album with "Epic" on it. Probably haven't listened to it since the early 90's.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Edge/Hardy and the Shawn/Jericho match I mentioned below come to mind.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 14, 2015 at 10:47 AM

    Were either of those title matches?

    ReplyDelete
  124. Was that from Jericho's podcast? What did Vince not understand about one guy kicking the shit out of another guy until he can't continue?

    ReplyDelete
  125. Referee stoppage would have been a great way to end a Brock defense. Let him clobber somebody until the ref steps in.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Does throwing in a towel count?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Yeah, I definitely think it's one of those movies where people hate the ending so much that they forget how generally decent it was up until then. I can understand that. If WM30 had ended with HHH or Batista as world champion, I imagine it might have been a similar story.

    ReplyDelete
  128. It was on the latest ep of his podcast.

  133. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogFebruary 14, 2015 at 10:50 AM

    Totally. One of the times I thought a quick non-finishing move ending was best. Plus it gave Flair motivation to seek that rematch

    ReplyDelete
  134. Do cops ever ask where'd you get that?

    ...

    (I apologize.)

    ReplyDelete
  135. I dunno. I think Patton was disappointed that the band were just doing pretty straight ahead 4/4 rock, after he'd been doing stuff with Mr. Bungle. Apparently he did his vocals for Album Of The Year in a day, first takes.

    Turn Sid right away, put him with Flair. Sting & Hulk vs Sid & Flair would have been awesome. Cool crossover history with WCW. Or go all in on Survivor Series concept and do: Hogan, Sting, Savage, LOD vs Flair, Sid, Perfect, Nastys

    ReplyDelete
  149. A real transitional period. It was like the companies were trying to regroup from the dull year 1991 was. Vince was dumping all the steroid guys, and some of them showed up in WCW. Smaller promotions were falling by the wayside. Lots of new talent getting mixed in.

  151. Tarantula is my favorite 21st century SP song. During their heyday, I go with 1979 by a whisker over Bullet With Butterfly Wings.

    Maybe? That match happened before I was born, I've never seen it.

  153. I DID hear the word 'pimple' just now.


    This is good. If we can agree on a word, maybe that will help us determine a cypher for the rest of it.

    If you can get Hogan to stay that is. If not, then make Sting the new Hogan

    Just listening to a Honky Tonk Man shoot about how Vince could split his roster back in the late '80s and run three separate shows on a given night, and the roster was strong enough that two could be booked in arenas like 'A-shows' and still sell out. Vince would kill to have that kind of drawing power today. Just another sign of the times, really.

  159. I was there for it. Crowd in stunned silence. But Backlund wasn't in the Camel Clutch passed out. Skaaland threw the towel before that happened. They tried spinning that match in a pre Hart/Michaels in Montreal deal. But everyone was on the same page for the outcome because Hogan was on his way.

    When the poll started, I threw out Smells like Teen Spirit, Black Hole Sun, and Enter Sandman as candidates. Glad to see them make it to the end. Nirvana should win

  162. Well in the 80s, he just took established draws from the territories. So you could run legitimate draws in different towns on the same night, then load the card with a bunch of slugs.


    There is no draws anymore (other than Cena), but they definitely have the roster for that, plus very little slugs.

  165. Sid's pre-match promo on Hogan:


    "NO!! SHUT UP YOU FAT, BALD HEADED LITTLE OAF! Now to you Hogan, a barn burner it won't be. It is going to be your last match and I will see to that. I have already made that promise to you Hogan and when I leave this dressing room and I stand in the ring and you walk down that aisle, you remember one thing...that I am the master and you are but the learner Hogan...you are but the learner.


    No I promise this will be his last match. SHUT UP! I don't care...I DON'T GIVE A DAMN about the memories of Hulk Hogan. The only thing to remember is that Sid Justice is the man that ended Hulkamania. Now you Hogan, I CURSE YOU...I CURSE YOU and every Hulkamaniac because...I...rule...the world."

    So is this greatest song of the 90's tournament going to end up as Smells Like Teen Spirit vs. Enter Sandman?


    Because that's the equivalent of Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Hulk Hogan as far as 90's tournaments go.

  170. Yes they do.

    And I reply that I stole it. :)

    Yeah, in 95, and according to him he hated every moment of the whole thing.

  179. I think it's honestly because WWE doesn't want you to see their guys as getting hurt in the ring, so they don't do finishes where one competitor is "too hurt to continue". Oddly enough being temporarily knocked out or passing out is fine. Even when you see a guy do a stretcher job they almost always get off the stretcher and come back to the ring. Or like an ambulance match: the guy isn't hurt, just knocked loopy enough to be tossed in and the door closed. They just want to downplay the notion that one guy is *really* trying to hurt the other for real. Because they're entertainers you see...

  180. I have been rooting for November Rain to go down so I am glad it ended up with Sandman here. I think Sandman is taking it based on the voting trends so far.

    I'm surprised November Rain got as far as it did. I mean, it was a good song for 1991, but one of the best of the 90's?

  186. With the Road to Wrestlemania catchphrase, it sort of makes sense. Still silly sounding, I agree.

  187. They'll receive Capitol Punishment if they are.

  188. It generally ends up at the very top of 90s lists and figured that and Teen Spirit were the real chalk of this. Wonderwall is the sneaky underdog but looks like its time is up.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Yeah, it was pretty strategic on where Vince booked certain guys when running A, B, and C shows. Obviously Hogan drew everywhere, but Vince was smart to book a lot of ex-AWA guys for midwest shows, and so on.
