WCW Worldwide: February 16, 1997

Horsemen4ever: Didn't Sledgehammer enter WCW with a record of 9-1-1?

*Standing ovation*

The Sunday Morning Wars are starting to take over the wrestling world. While the WWF has decided to run with recaps and footage of people setting up the ring for the pay-per-view tonight, WCW is loading up the shotgun and firing out some of the biggest names available today. Do you want to see Hulk Hogan? Randy Savage? Sting? The Outsiders? OF COURSE NOT! Not when Billy Kidman, Alex Wright, Mieko Satomara, and Malya Hosaka are around!

TONY SCHIAVONE and “SOBER” BOBBY HEENAN hype tonight’s main event; where the Faces of Fear take on Chris Benoit and Arn Anderson, who’s somehow found the strength to roll off the operating table and ignore his near-crippling career ending neck injury to compete for YOU.


BILLY KIDMAN (1-4-0) vs. JERRY FLYNN (0-3-0)

Tony: “Here’s a young man getting a lot of wins as of late!” ... then to send the ridiculousness into overdrive: “Jerry Flynn’s another young man with a lot of kickboxing experience.” For god sakes he’s all of 3 years younger than “up and comer” Diamond Dallas Page. Flynn decides to go the route of not selling anything for the anorexic cruiserweight. A spinning heel kick provides him plenty of time to yell at the fans. Kidman comes back with a crossbody for 2, and Flynn immediately pops up and kicks away at Kidman’s ribs. Kidman uses some sad punches to the midsection, but they’re effective. I’ve seen kids with yellow belts block more effectively than this guy, I’m starting to think that black belt might not be on the up and up. Flynn dodges a dropkick, and the former Mensa member points to his head! Kidman dodges a spinkick, and hits a tornado bulldog for 2! Still, Flynn is dazed, and Kidman uses the Shooting Star Press, where he misses Flynn completely, coming down with his forehead directly to Flynn’s nose, and Kidman picks up his second victory of the year at 4:18. *1/2

MEIKO SATOMARA (no data in 1997) vs. MALYA HOSAKA (no data in 1997) (with Sonny Onoo)

Did Dr. Harvey Schiller walk into GAEA with an AK-47 and order everybody in the arena to sign WCW contracts? There’s like 14 new Japanese women in the company, and they only appear on the C-shows. None of them aside from Akira Hokuto get any type of press or consistent television appearances, and the only way to tell the heels from the faces is based on who Sonny Onoo is photographing.  But the good news, is that despite the completely inconsistent booking, lack of distinguishable wrestlers, or storylines, WCW will be creating a women’s cruiserweight title. The sad part about this, is that I might have to pick WCW Main Event back up to follow along with this important development, because they can’t bump an Alex Wright match from Saturday Night or anything. Satomara sports the ever stylish ladies’ hairstyle: The John Lennon. She also squeals like a banshee throughout the match, despite being the face. This is a complete and total squash for Meiko, who wins with a Frog Splash at 1:15. Tony declares this an upset, but unless it comes from Mike Tenay, I’m going to treat that comment as highly suspicious. DUD

CHAVO GUERRERO JR. (2-5-0) vs. REY MYSTERIO JR. (3-2-2)

Bobby starts railing on how ugly Mysterio is, while Tony goes to defend Mysterio by saying he’s so darn good looking he’s trying to remain incognito to stop them from literally throwing their vaginas at him as he passes through their towns. Tony: “Besides, you wouldn’t know anything about being handsome!” Bobby: “….. I beg your pardon?!?” The lads start a test of strength, but that goes about as far as a test of strength between Mysterio and Chavo would be expected to. Rey escapes a headlock to hit a springboard legdrop for 2. Chavo comes back with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and heads up. His big top rope move is a 180 splash, which sounds FAR better until you realize it’s simply a guy horizontally turning mid-air. I’m assuming he perfected that move jumping into the pool as a 6-year old in a game of “hey look at this!” Rey hits the West Coast Pop out of nowhere, even though Chavo has no idea how to sell it and they awkwardly roll into the pinning spot at 3:56. Honestly, at this stage of the game, Chavo’s only a Cruiserweight by scale, and NOT by talent, because if you take away the fact he’s about 150 pounds, he’s basically a less talented Latino version of Alex Wright. He’d get way better over time, but in 1997 he’s death to watch. 1/2*

ALEX WRIGHT (7-4-0) vs. SONNY TROUT (no data in 1997)

Oh good, first the Latino Alex Wright, and now the Arian Alex Wright. Trout pounds on his shoulder, while Tony makes the mistake of asking Bobby who his favorite broadcast partner is. “Well, let’s see. I work with you here, and on Nitro. On the Main Event it’s you, and on pay-per-view it’s you … I’m sick of working with you!” Tony: “Now here’s a young man in Alex Wright who could go Cruiserweight or Heavyweight.” Bobby: “Which way do you think he should go?” Tony: “Cruiserweight actually. Where do you think he should go?” Bobby: “Home!” Wright hits a pair of European uppercuts and gets 2. A vertical suplex sets up a crossbody off the top, and Wright wins at 4:19. Bobby: “See, he can’t speak English.” Tony: “I can understand every word he just said!” Bobby: “Yeah but you’re from Marietta.” Heenan’s off the charts tonight. This match was not. DUD

THE FACES OF FEAR (3-1-1) (with Jimmy Hart) vs. ARN ANDERSON and CHRIS BENOIT (no data in 1997)

I have to figure this is Anderson’s last broadcasted match; though it was taped before his Nitro shindig with the French Canadians which was his actual Last Match. Benoit and Meng start, and Benoit rakes the eyes. Of course, he forgets that Tongans don’t have eyes, because Meng ignores the move and beats Benoit into a thick pulpy mass. Chris tries to fight back, but it’s Meng for god sakes, and one swift kick to the tooth stops that as fast as it started. Benoit tries a springboard crossbody, but Meng barely feels it as he launches Benoit on 2. Barbarian and Anderson square off next, and Arn throws a bunch of kidney punches. Barbarian stands there looking bored, until he goozles Arn and throws him to the other side of the ring. Anderson launches a desperate back elbow, and the Barbarian is dazed! For like a second, until Barbarian hits a standing vertical suplex to set up the swandive for 2. Benoit tags in and stomps away, but Barbarian just face plants him and tags in Meng. The Horsemen double team the wild man, and Meng just stands there as if to ask “are you done yet?” In a fantastic spot, Anderson kicks Meng in the face, and Meng just pops up and dares him to do it again. The second kick is swatted away like a fly, and Meng palm thrusts Anderson in the throat. Meng backdrops Arn, right into the awaiting arms of Barbarian who powerbombs him! Benoit saves at 2, which probably should have been it. Arn pops off a spinebuster from nowhere, but Barbarian kicks out at 2. Arn acts surprised; PLEASE! This man won’t be put down by your silly finishers. All hell breaks loose, and Jimmy jumps on the apron. Benoit attacks him while Arn DDT’s Meng! Barbarian retaliates with a Kick of Fear, so Benoit grabs the Megaphone and clocks Barbarian upside the head for the DQ at 5:59! Faces of Fear win!!! All 4 guys continue to brawl despite the fact this is long over, and while Benoit tries to direct traffic, Meng isn’t playing ball. **1/2


Next week: An even BIGGER card, featuring Psychosis, Akira Hokuto, Keiru, and Ciclope! Check your local listings! We out!

  1. Tongans don't have eyes. Thanks. I was always wondering.

  2. These reviews are interesting because I feel like WCW Worldwide was so pointless by 1997 and not even acknowledged by anyone in WCW as something important, but yet it existed and there was wrestling.

  3. Why don't they make the whole plane out of Bobby Heenan?

  8. Oh fuck I hope not. Please don't ruin Balor by shoving him alongside "the other Irish guy" for no fucking reason.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Bayless should have spoiled that shit out.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Agreed. It's only racist if you choose to read it in that way - there was a BIG deal made of him being a top Japanese star, Hogan going to Japan for the signing, etc.

    It's a "fuck off back to the minor leagues" statement.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have a bad feeling they are going to put the IC title on Balor the night after Mania by having him answer an open challenge. It would pop the crowd for one night but would not benefit him long-term. They aren't going to put him over top guys yet, and they don't want to shunt him back down the card after a big debut, so he'll just trade wins in the midcard. They did the title switch with Paige last year and it was a disaster.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Did anyone really believe that Reigns would not be winning the title?

    ReplyDelete
  13. A few Irish friends of mine know him, and from early on he was telling them he wasn't going to be in NXT for long, with an underlying tone being that if they didn't move him up to the main roster quickly, he would feel he was wasting his time with them and wouldn't have any qualms about walking away. Got the feeling he was given a lot of reassurances on that when he signed with them.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Since Brock re-signed anything is possible.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I said it yesterday. There's no way they do a Shield reunion at WM. They are, for better or worse, going with Reigns as The Guy. Anything less than Reigns holding up the title to end WM would be admitting failure, and we all know how god Vince is at that.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Agreed. But do we really trust them not to?

  21. Lesnar retains. Bryan wins IC title. Cena wins US title. The secondary titles are elevated and Lesnar continues to defend every other month or so. It's a win/win/win situation!

  26. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMarch 26, 2015 at 7:18 AM

    That would make like EIGHT straight Wrestlemanias headlined by part timers. And in none of those was said part timer used to make a new star.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am okay with all three of those programs.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Four? Four straight Wrestlemanias?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Funny I'm reading this after skimming through Death of WCW last night.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can anyone with the Observer confirm this?


    "- According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, with Brock Lesnar signed to a three-year contract WWE is now thinking of matches for Lesnar for WrestleMania 32. The site reports that WWE is looking at three possibilities for next year between The Rock, John Cena and The Undertaker."


    LOL if true. MORE rematches for Lesnar!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I feel like they've wasted a lot of matches in Brock's latest run. Outside of Triple H and Punk, we saw him wrestle these guys during his first run. It would be cool if they could find a way to finally do Bryan/Brock, or even Orton/Brock.

    ReplyDelete
  32. For wm32, why not just build a kickass show instead of using a guys who last wrestled full time in 2003-4?

    ReplyDelete
  33. It seems their logic is that making Mania a standalone show will bring in more part time buys/network subscribers/casual fans who don't need to be up to date on the storylines. The problem is that making it a standalone show gives those buyers/subscribers no reason to continue sending them money since they don't care what happens after that.

    ReplyDelete
  34. They better have gotten more dates out of him.

  36. With that World title setup that means Reigns wins as a babyface. Facking stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The way you say it is the irritating way.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm ok with Lesnar keeping that title for three more years.

  39. Not necessarily. MitB cash in is in play.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:23 AM

    Bryan will never happen in a million years. Vince won't ever use him in a main event capacity unless Reigns is dead or dying.

  44. Who the hell else are they going to fill that stadium with? One of the geeks whos career they've all ruined over the last 5 or 6 years?

    ReplyDelete
  45. True. But I kinda have gotten really into the idea of Brock just winning.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:25 AM

    Vince wouldn't make his golden boy look weak so soon and rob him of his "Wrestlemania Moment".

  47. Like most things he says.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Batista and HHH made Daniel Bryan last year. Wasn't that the headline news?

    "You have no future in THIS BUSINESS, pal! That being said, fuck you."

    - Vince

    ReplyDelete
  50. Well they do have a year to build someone up. It's not exactly rocket science. They sold out last year's Mania and plenty others using current stars instead of part-timers. Why not put Bryan in there? He's the most over in the company. They could do Lesnar/Bryan, Triple H/Rock, Cena/Undertaker, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  51. How so? 27 wasn't headlined by any part timers.

    ReplyDelete
  52. The rock was the host

    ReplyDelete
  53. That's stretching "headlining"

    ReplyDelete
  54. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:28 AM

    In retrospect, Bryan was going to be the Chris Benoit champion, a placeholder for the guy they REALLY wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:31 AM

    He needs a heel turn badly. He'd make an excellent top heel.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Just a thought: why not have rusev win this Sunday and keep on winning for the next year including beating bryan for the world title. Brock beats him next year at wm. He beats 2 streaks (rusev and taker).

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yeah, really. I mean, they come to you and say, "Hey, pal, we're going to put you in the main event at WrestleMania..." What are you going to say? "No, thanks... I'm not ready yet." Rock and a hard place.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Meltzer said that the plan is for Lesnar vs. Rock but if that falls through Heyman has mentioned Cena and the Undertaker in promos as preparation in case they go with those two as Lesnar's opponent.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Full-time part-timers.
    All the time, 9.99!
    Play Revenge instead.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Because that would be very disrespectful and would probably seriously damage their reputation in Japan. They can tout WWE as 'the pinnacle' - that's just gravy because why wouldn't you call yourself the best - but if you're telling fans of NJPW, NOAH, etc, that you consider them to be minor leagues, they're not going to be happy.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Well Bryan WAS the most over guy in the company. They ruined that over the last 3 months and I think there's no squeezing the toothpaste back into that tube. And the only guy that seems like a threat would be to book Owens/Lesnar after he gets called up but I don't see that happening in just one year. Same for Finn Balor. I mean Roman Reigns was VINCES GUY and they STILL found a way to book him like shit.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The only 2 logical choices for the ending of Wrestlemania are


    a. Brock retains


    b. Reigns wins via some sort of heel turn / Shiled reunion


    Reigns is being put out there to die if he just beats Brock with no shenanigans.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Of course we don't. :(

    When he comes in as Sheamus' little brother, I'm putting my foot through my TV.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hahaha, that's funny. Cena not going over at WM.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Brock kicks Reigns' ass, Shield reunites and kicks Brock's ass, Reigns wins, Rollins cashes in immediately after. We all cheer and LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Sad but true

    ReplyDelete
  69. .....which would eventually turn into a face turn, and we'll be back where we started.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Brock looked like a huge hero on ESPN the other day, how would they not let him win. Brock talking about continuing his legacy almost had me signing back up for the network.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ugh, those two are even worse choices.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Which is a shame because given a proper build, Bryan/Lesnar could sell out the place.

    ReplyDelete
  73. upvote for play Revenge instead

    ReplyDelete
  74. This is late WCW level shit if Reigns just wins as a babyface.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:35 AM

    I don't really buy the argument that a loss to Cena is the apocalypse as far as Rusev goes anymore. I think Rusev winning is the best plan, but Cena put him over relatively strong at Fast Lane. Having a WM 13 finish where Rusev refuses to tap and passes out would add a layer to his character.

    ReplyDelete
  76. That's what's happening. They'll just have Sting/HHH as the main so they don't end the show on a dead crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Although I'm not particularly enthused about it, I can see where Brock vs. Rock would be a huge drawing match.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Right. If WM brings the fans, you want to sell them a product that's compelling to keep them watching, not something that makes them go "I remember THAT guy.....dang that dude looks old".

    ReplyDelete
  79. Serious thought:

    Wouldn't an apropos ending here be if both men tried their submission finishers until it was clear that wouldn't work, so one or the other resorts to winning by pinfall?

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm really shocked they would think this is an ok way to end Wrestlemania. Brock losing looks terrible after all the media attention he just got.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:36 AM

    The idea is for him to build organically to his next face turn.

    ReplyDelete
  82. The Rusev workout video on WWE.com

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yah, but that doesn't fit the haiku rules.

    ReplyDelete
  84. That would be absolutely horrible. Sting-HHH isn't a big enough match to be non title and ending the show.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'm going to laugh when Rusev (evil foreign heel) gets a heroes welcome and people sing along "John Cena Sucks" to Cena's theme music.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Vince's inner thoughts:
    "Why can't I make some new stars?"
    (Meanwhile, Big Show wins.)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Only thing organic these days is the amount of ish the fans are asked to swallow.

    Is it sad that Vince may have orchestrated the announcement in the way that he did, so that Brock could draw more eyeballs to Roman at wrestlemania?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ah, so they have an old-timey wrestling match.

    ReplyDelete
  94. But they've been promoting it heavier than the title match all month plus since when have they cared about crowd interest for a HHH match-uh?! It's what the fans want to see-uh. 30 minutes of HHH in a quiet arena for the main event-uh...

    ReplyDelete
  98. I still fully believe turning Cena heel and leaving him exactly the way he is now would draw ridiculous Hollywood Hogan heat.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Because WWE? This is a company that consistently has the right storyline in front of them and ignore it or go the other way way too often. Last year they were dragged kicking and screaming into Bryan winning. I'm not a big Bryan fan, but it was obvious that anything but Bryan winning and leading a YES! chant was stupid. They were able to do a good retcon for the story to make it all work and look fantastic, but you can't expect that two years in a row from this creative crew.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Yes. Expected? Very much so.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 26, 2015 at 7:44 AM

    He could carry the company on his back as a heel. The pretty boy jock with fame and fortune thanks to a generation of dumb kids who drank his Kool-Aid?

  102. I guess if you WANT to make Reigns look like a total chump who you have no plans for, that's one way.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I could see him thinking that. It's completely wrong thinking but it's possible given how much he loves him

    ReplyDelete
  104. All for the LULZ. I don't care either way I just want a decent match.

  105. Evidently all the people fantasy booking the Shield reunion did.

  106. Sting at Mania.
    And he will share the fans' view:
    Up, counting the lights.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I don't care either, I'm just trying to realistically figure it out. I just don't see this going any other way than Reigns winning.

    ReplyDelete
  108. While I'm sure Roman is excited to headline his first Wrestlemania, I wouldn't be surprised if he's upset about all the crap he's getting because of the way he's been booked (Looney Tunes promos, for example). If he had at least a couple of years of experience and they tapped him to headline, say, Wrestlemania 34, he probably would've had a little more confidence in voicing his opinion on the way his character is being portrayed

  125. Yeah. Have him wrestle on the big shows (Wrestlemania, SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, and maybe Night of Champions and MITB), and then have him appear on the occasional Raw, Smackdown and B level PPV show scoping out his next kill

    ReplyDelete
  126. I'd laugh if they got drenched. It'd be a fitting end to the 2014-2015 "season."

    ReplyDelete
  127. God, if it rains during the title match, Cole will be insufferable.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Here's a good one!

    Roman... Rains.

    ReplyDelete
  129. We're entrenched in a major drought here in CA. It's supposed to be warm and sunny.

    ReplyDelete
  130. High 70s with like a 10% change of rain. C'MON BABEH!!!

    Sorry about the drought but at least Mania will get good weather

    ReplyDelete
  132. The Bay has its own climate, though. One of the weirdest things I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Leaving for San Jose tomorrow morning, super stoked for the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'm still reeling from Marv figuring out that Underskill, Best In The World, Dougie2876 and others were the same person. All these other news items are minor footnotes.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Are you going to Mania?

    ReplyDelete
  136. True. When my wife and I were dating, she lived in San Francisco and I swear seasons there were totally opposite. Cold ass summers and nice as hell during the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Is the surprise that they are the same, or that it was Marv that figured it out?

    ReplyDelete
  138. Somehow I heard that in Vince's voice

    ReplyDelete
  139. Have fun. I'm driving out tomorrow morning. Can't wait.

    Is double J booking female wrestlers? If that's the case he could be booking Spring Breakers.

    ReplyDelete
  141. As some of you know I'm in the theatre in real life. As my latest production has me on stage all but naked, I decided to get a full spray tan ready for tonight's opening night.
    My entire body has been feeling slightly sticky/tacky since the tan.
    I don't get how anyone does this for fun?

    Where?Daily thread?

    ReplyDelete
  144. When did this happen?

    ReplyDelete
  145. My sister in law lives there, and I love going to visit. We went during a heat wave (at home) a couple of years ago, and had a few days of nice, sunny 50s to hang out in.

    ReplyDelete
  146. YankeesHoganTripleHFanMarch 26, 2015 at 8:01 AM

    I used to do theater myself. Good luck with the show! Which one are you doing?

    ReplyDelete
  147. "It has yet to be confirmed what type of show Jarrett is booking."

    I would assume it would be a wrestling show.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Think it was yesterdays daily. Marv is very clever and I always trust his diagnoses. His diagnosis: Same account. I think they were getting muddled up.

    ReplyDelete
  149. No Sex Please, We're British.
    Total Farce.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Marv is a tremendous competitor.

    ReplyDelete
  151. YankeesHoganTripleHFanMarch 26, 2015 at 8:01 AM

    I'm assuming Spring Breakers

    Sounds funny actually.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Did you not watch TNA?
    That's a big assumption.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Brock vs. Rock could. The other two won't

    ReplyDelete
  156. This will be the theme song for the tag team of Reigns and Henry in four years when Vince sees this video for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Can anybody's life really be that empty that creating multiple accounts to talk to yourself online is considered a improvement?

    ReplyDelete
  158. How would you rebook Spring Breakers? Hudgens, Gomez, Benson, and Korine still in? I would take Korine out.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Whats your itinerary dude?

    ReplyDelete
  160. I feel I'm pretty good at sniffing out frauds, but that's some next level shit. That also means Fake Dougie called Underskill a little bitch last week. The guy is so bored he's calling himself names to keep up the act.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Truly he is The World's Greatest Detective

    ReplyDelete
  162. Just wait until you see the first ever 10 man reverse battle royal king of the mountain contract and rats in a box six sides of steel match!

    Gomez kills a Justin Beiber lookalike

    ReplyDelete
  164. all but naked or all butt naked?

    ReplyDelete
  165. I don't know if you read any of the previews, but in the Bieber roast they made him legit cry. And Hannibal Buress destroyed him.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Holy shit. The big plan for WM32 is to redo a match that flopped in 2002.

    ReplyDelete
  167. YankeesHoganTripleHFanMarch 26, 2015 at 8:05 AM

    I just read some of the jokes online

    ReplyDelete
  168. I was hoping brock vs rock next wrestlemania

    ReplyDelete
  169. By flop, you mean put Lesnar on the map?

    ReplyDelete
  170. I guess it keeps them busy and stops them committing murders or something. Unless they're also committing murders. Which they probably almost certainly are.

    ReplyDelete
  171. The Hannibal joke I read about Bieber doing the show as a transparent attempt to seem likeable and how he hoped it wouldn't work was perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Wrestlers With Low Self Esteem? That definitely is already TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  173. "We're not so different...you and I."

    ReplyDelete
  174. That didn't get the reaction or buyrate they had hoped for. Remember that Rock was booked as the heroic Samoan babyface standing up to the all-powerful heel Lesnar? And the fans booed Rock out of the building, and turned Lesnar face in the process?

    ReplyDelete
  175. http://www.comicvine.com/images/1300-3088835

    ReplyDelete
  176. "I actually hate you. I just think this is a great move for my career." Cold blooded.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I read that there was one joke he didn't take kindly to, but for the most art took it like a champ. He even got a few zingers in at the end

    ReplyDelete
  178. While maybe they didn't make as much money on that one show as they would've liked, I think it worked out in the long run since Brock became one of their biggest stars ever.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Given that Rock was leaving for Hollywood, I thought it was a bygone conclusion that he was losing to Brock and it was sort of a torch-passing thing?

    ReplyDelete
  180. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports
    that WWE is considering having the Undertaker’s retirement match at
    WrestleMania 32. The idea would be to pair the match with a Hall of
    Fame induction the night before the show, as the show is at Cowboys
    Stadium and that’s the Dead Man’s home state.

    Of course, this is dependent on his physical condition. The site
    notes that Undertaker has previously said he didn’t think he could last
    until that point, but with the fact that he is facing Bray Wyatt this
    year, it is a possibility. A lot is said to be dependent on how he
    performs against Wyatt and how he’s feeling after. WWE wants to set the
    all-time attendance record at Cowboys Stadium and is considering adding
    as many legends who can go as possible. The one exception is Ric
    Flair, as they refuse to go back on their retirement angle from
    WrestleMania 24.

    ReplyDelete
  181. all but naked.
    At various points, I'm running around the stage topless, I'm having my clothes torn off me & I end up with my back to the audience as my trousers are stripped off leaving me in just a small womans thong.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Flair has wrestled a lot since WM24.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Count me as being 100% on board with Lesnar retaining and Cena becoming U.S. champ on the RAW brand and Bryan being the Intercontinental Champ on the Smackdown brand.

    I have no problem with the world champion being seen on a limited basis as long as the U.S. and IC titles are treated like big prizes. That is, if WWE can build that probably, which I have little faith in them doing but a lot of hope that they will.

    ReplyDelete
  184. But that was all in indies or lower, WWE has been quite good in respecting Retirement stips in recent years.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Am I the only one that finds it really sad that Undertaker showing up or not for WrestleMania is depending on his health? We've been hearing this for quite a few years now.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Not for WWE. Plus, WWE is very hesitant to use a lot of the older folks in actual matches because of Lawler's heart attack.

    ReplyDelete
  187. Blimey. I'll assume you wrote this.

    ReplyDelete
  188. Yeah, no matter how shitty the main event, it's WRESTLEMANIA

    ReplyDelete
  189. I don't want both US/IC title to be held by the top 2 babyfaces. Too much redundancy. I would rather see Rusev win again and keep winning by defeating all the top level guys.

    Rusev could be bigger than Goldberg if handled right.

    ReplyDelete
  190. Are you doing any of the RoH or NXT Shows?

    ReplyDelete
  191. Let's just hope Undertaker doesn't shatter into a million pieces

    ReplyDelete
  192. I was going to help you change it, but I see you got it!

    Hey! Now my initial reply looks out of place!

    ReplyDelete
  193. And then left the business for like 9 years.

    ReplyDelete
  194. No it's a well know play. West End runs have featured actors like Michael Crawford & David Jason,.
    It was even made into a movie. starring Ronnie Corbett & Arthur Lowe.

    ReplyDelete
  195. Keep going...

    ReplyDelete
  196. It will happen one day. Those matches will be severely limited. Especially the ladder match.
