    ReplyDelete
  14. Was watching some 1991 Superstars last night and Kerry Von Erich was wrestling a jobber. At the start of the match, Von Erich slaps the shit out of the guy to the point where the guy stumbles backwards then falls out of the ring. He looks like he's going to cry. Kerry then goes to the floor and helps the guy back into the ring and shakes his hand. Now THAT's a babyface.

  17. People of earlier today! I come from the future with a small example of the talent meeting:


    "We're all supposed to be having FUN, dammit. Aren't you having fun!? We're telling you as hard as we can that you're supposed to have fun. Just...don't have TOO much fun, okay? Don't make Cena or Reigns look bad or show them up. Don't worry, pals! I'll owe ya!"

    ReplyDelete
  18. "Brock, if you show up? I'll owe ya, pal!"

  19. I'm guessing that they are going to roll out a new method of payouts since the PPV era is over. They are going to lower expectations for payouts so it's not a big shock after mania.

    I've been watching late 89/early 90 NWA/WCW on the Network and I've been enjoying it quite a lot. I've always heard that is was a crap time for them, but apart from the undercards being slightly boring, it's had a lot of good stuff. Road Warriors/Steiner Bros/Doom/Sky Scrapers/Samoan Swat Team and more in the tag division and Ric Flair as the champ is awesome. Just watched the I Quit match between Flair and Funk which was great, then Sting joining the Horsemen and then getting kicked out for signing a title match (great promo from Ole too).

    Is this one of those things where because the current product is so lacking that this actually seems good in comparison, or was it just under-appreciated for the time?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was wondering the same thing, but then again I don't know the BW's history that well outside of their small stint with the WWF in the 90s.

  27. Halloween Havoc 1989 is one of my favorite pay-per-view cards.

    Following up on something we were talking about late at night in another thread I watched the old HOF ceremonies on the Network. Bobby Heenan's speech is one of the most awesome, hilarious, and touching pieces of footage that WWE owns. Everybody should watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think it was pretty good but just wasn't mainstream like the WWF. I've been watching the Early Clashes and the 88 shows and just about to start the first Clash of 89 then Chi-Town Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's amazing how low the NWA's production values were too. The WWF could make a small arena seem like a big deal, whereas the NWA made even big arenas look like high school gyms.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Er, uh, I knew that...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is Vince going to tell everyone that everything is fine, and a new deal with Spike is going to be announced any time now?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah everything was dark but it had a charm to it. The NWA fans were very passionate too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. YankeesHoganTripleHFanMarch 9, 2015 at 7:22 AM

    Best speech ever.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I watched Havoc '89 for the first time in a while the other day and its hilarious how Philly boos the Dynamic Dudes out of the building and treats the Freebirds as wrestling gods.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm sure that locker room speech will be about how people need to make the most of their opportunities and how people need to stop complaining or some ridiculous corporate garbage.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Freebirds were always getting face pops even though they were obviously heels. I never understood why they were so cool. The theme song is kinda catchy tho.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!March 9, 2015 at 7:25 AM

    Agreed. Heenan's speech is the best HOF speech ever, and it's really not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Buffalo HopscotchMarch 9, 2015 at 7:25 AM

    That's probably part of why I've been enjoying it, despite its obvious faults. I've always gone for "wrestling" over "sports entertainment".

    ReplyDelete
  41. Brock has now been champion for 203 days. Besides the reign of CM Punk, Lesnar at Mania will be the longest reigning WWE Champion since Cena's reign in 2006-2007.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can't put my finger on it, but something about that photo is just awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Buffalo HopscotchMarch 9, 2015 at 7:26 AM

    Did they always run in stadiums that were way too big? Half the shows I've watched they have to keep half the stadium dark because there's no one in the seats.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The locker room speech will be on how to defend yourself in case Lesnar goes nuts backstage.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Led of course by the UNDEFEATED Stephanie McMahon.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think their attendance was better down south because of the history there. When they tried to go up north and other areas, the crowds were smaller.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Buffalo HopscotchMarch 9, 2015 at 7:28 AM

    Badstreet, USA is a terribly catchy tune. One of those ones you find yourself randomly humming while you do mundane tasks.

  69. I loved that Heenan got inducted in 2004 and nailed it with his speech, and then inducted someone in 2005, 2006, 2007 to keep his streak of awesome Hall of Fame speeches going. He really was the best inductor. I honestly believe that if he wasn't so ill that every year we'd be treated to a wonderful Heenan induction speech at the Hall of Fame.

    3:45PM: Goes to catering table. Gets called R-Truth by McMahon, asked to dance.

    4:25PM Talks training tips with HHH. Gets called JYD by McMahon, asked to dance..

  84. I'm sure the massive increase in buyrates from Extreme Rules 2012 and SummerSlam 2012 more than covered the costs of flights.

  131. At least you can excuse WWE's as the whims of Vince putting in whoever he feels deserves it. Whenever someone complains about someone like Lou Thesz, Ivan Koloff, Stan Hansen or (until recently) Randy Savage not being in the Hall of Fame, it's easy to just shrug and go "whatever, it's not a real Hall of Fame."

    The sad thing is that the Rock Hall of Fame has VOTING, and it still doesn't make sense. Are you telling me that the hundreds (thousands?) of voters don't think that Deep Purple, the Monkees, or Chicago are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame worthy, but a lot of mediocre artists of the 60s and 70s are? Or that Stevie Ray Vaughn and KISS weren't "good enough" to be inducted until YEARS after they were eligible?

  138. Is it really hundreds or thousands? I figured it was the usual bunch of out of touch old guys voting based off of slights and favoritism that are marginally in the music industry.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Agreed, but at least a majority of the baseball hall of fame voters are known and can be identified, and numbers and percentages are released. There's an accountability to the madness.

    There are literally hundreds of Rock Hall of Fame voters that nobody knows whom they are, and there's zero reveal of the numbers or percentages. There are stories from insiders about bands that hit the number of votes for induction that are ignored so other bands/groups can go in instead. Then there's the mindless accounting of WHOM goes in from each band, where as the Red Hot Chili Peppers latest guitarist goes in despite only being in the band for 2 years so far and the lyricist of the Grateful Dead goes in, but guys who played in KISS for decades are ignored.

  141. I can’t see the point of a music hall of fame when musical taste is as
    subjective as it is. If you’re just putting in artists who sell the most, who
    cares?

  142. It's so Americans can start Americaing sooner because of America.

  143. A small nominating committee decides who is the ballot every year (by what means, nobody knows), but then there are at least a few hundred voters. Every member is allowed to vote. But vote totals and percentages are never announced.

    ReplyDelete
  144. What if...the tractor ran on sunlight.


    Dun dun dun!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Exactly. As the WWE Hall of Fame isn't trying to be some legit organization that tries to pass itself off as an arts organization. The Rock Hall is obviously a moneymaking thing, so why pretend otherwise?

    I'll definitely watch it, mainly because I looooove Ellie Kemper.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I meant, if that's what they go by, how could one care about it? They seem to pick incredibly obvious well known acts. It's not like it's building a canon of the best albums. it just seems to be all the million selling bands there ever was.

    The worst is "muscle guy #1 vs. muscle guy #2." Even back then, Vince thought jacked up dudes were the greatest thing ever. Didn't matter if they knew fuck-all in the ring, as long as their thighs were meaty.

  156. It generally is, but then they'll induct other artists who aren't big sellers, but are known influences like Iggy Pop.

    They also don't really define what is rock and roll. Somehow Madonna, ABBA, Grandmaster Flash, Randy Newman (all inductees) are considered rock and roll, when most people wouldn't really consider them rock and roll at all. Is pop and rap considered "rock and roll"? If not, where do you draw the line? Is Garth Brooks (not an inductee) considered rock and roll? If not, why are there plenty of country artists from earlier decades in the hall? At one point did country stop being part of rock? It's just getting stupid.

    So yeah, 90% of it is just the best-selling musicians of all time.

    I assume Howard Finkel is standing next to Billy Martin, helping him with the ring announcements, because Billy Martin is drunk as a skunk, yes?

  174. Music is too subjective to not have hurt feelings over who gets inducted and who doesn't.
    I think that Madonna is an embarrassment to music, but there are a few million people who disagree with me, so...

  175. Maybe HHH can lie to the talent some more at the meeting. Don't worry guys, we have no clue who's winning the rumble and main eventing mania. No clue!!!

    HHH: I'm really sorry about..you know.

    Titus: It's not as bad as it could be.

    HHH: It seems pretty bad.

    Titus: Nah, I told Vince two years ago I was Ernie Ladd. Let him know he was going to have to sweeten the pot if he wanted me to give up on football, which he did on the spot.

    HHH: This is not surprising, actually.

    Titus: I even told him my shoot name was Thad Bullard and that he had to make the checks out to same. By that time he thought I was Bobo Brazil.

    HHH: Obviously. Has he gotten to Pez Whatley?

    Titus: Constantly. And it confuses him every time as to who stole me from the NWA and why.

  185. I always thought the Bushwackers were really hardcore. Back in the 80's aidsamania was running wild and for a while there, a lot of people didnt exactly know how it was spread. Even in the late 80's people were still ignorant. And here they came out licking people's faces.

    I was talking to my grandmother on the phone the other day about my sons teacher. She busts out, "oh I hear he has aids too right?". I'm like wow no hadn't heard that. She then goes "Oh I mean teaching aids". Felt like I was in a South Park episode.
