  1. After they split up the new Rockers in late 96 it seemed like they gave Leif a more serious edge and a little bit of a push as his new role was to give guys good matches in PPV openers, which was a good spot for him to showcase his talents, but I think WWF were put off with his subpar match against Mero at Final Four and Snow returned back to being a jobber again, not even being showcased on PPV anymore until Heyman nabbed him.

    Rey's somebody that I definitely want to hear the shoot from.

  3. ECW vid looks great as usual. Should have the Douglas hospital promo tho.

    ReplyDelete
  4. They should have Khali join the Authority. A trio of Kane, Big Show, and Khali could be the greatest heat generating team of our generation.

  6. Big Show: Did you order the hamburgers?

    Khaki: Armabesh devabesh ra.

    Kane: Well he does have a greasy bag in his hands.

    Khali: Armabesh devabesh ra.

    Big Show: Give me the bag.

    Khali: Armabesh devabesh ra.

    Big Show: Wait a minute, there is nothing but French fries in this bag.

    Kane: That's my order. Thanks Khali.

    Khali: Armabesh devabesh ra.

    Big Show: What are we going to do to Daniel Bryan tonight.

    Khali: Armabesh devabesh ra.

    Kane: Wait a minute, these aren't french fries.

    [Khali grabs bag]

    Khali: Mah foo. Mah foo.

  7. If Big Show and Kane were immobile enough for you, here comes the return of the Great Khali!

    Two ***1/2 star matches to his name. Triple H and Cena are miracle workers.

  12. "Thanks. I pride myself in working hard"---Cena

  13. Is there no other Indian wrestler they could hire to fill that quota?

    ReplyDelete
  14. ... sure, we can go with that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sonjay Dutt?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Khali. IF that article from the other day is accurate and he's just using the WWE to try and start a Wrestling Fed in India under the auspices of WWE. Fine. If he is actually going to start wrestling again because Vince thinks the dude is a draw? Maybe they think that they'll get more subscriptions to the Network in India? But one might think he'd have to actually win matches and...Eesh. I don't know.

  17. Cena vs Orton,one more timeApril 10, 2015 at 7:31 AM

    I'm Indian,and I can safely tell you no fan in this country has ever given a fuck about him

    ReplyDelete
  18. One might think he'd actually be able to MOVE, let alone win matches.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Maybe they can do comedy finishes. Like he gets KO'd but falls on his opponent and pins him.

    Khali's back! WWE IS SAVED!!

  21. Fans: WE DON'T WANT REIGNS.

    Vince: (in gravel angry voice) FINE!...I'm going to bring back....I'm going to bring back...KHALIIIIIIIIIIIIII

    Fans: Oh no! We love Reigns!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, cool. Are there any home grown guys from India that are popular? Do you guys have any Indian federations that people go to? Is there some sort of Indian version of the Hart family for example?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Had to look him up but he definitely looks a better option. Also had no idea there were backyard wrestling video games on Xbox... they don't look too shabby

    ReplyDelete
  24. Theberzerker, #1 HUSS CHOMPIONApril 10, 2015 at 7:36 AM

    They definitely want Khali back for their Indian market aspirations, just hearing Cena mention how much they want to establish themselves there and in China as well confirms that. And much like their Mexican plans with Del Rio, no one will give a serious fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Didn't Snow blow out his knee in that match?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cena vs Orton,one more timeApril 10, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    Cena's far and away the most popular guy,it's not even close.
    As far as homegrown talent goes,TNA had a talent show,didn't really work out though.WWE has been the dominant player here for nearly 2 decades.
    Speaking of Hart,Bret was really well liked back in the day.

  27. How is latino heat ranked 206?

  31. Yeah, shame about Ring Ka King. I wish it had worked out.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Is Laredo Kid any good?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your review comes next week. Do it to it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Bak3ray is back!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This year's show are at least better than 1993-95, because even though WWF's roster was lacking, all of the relevant guys are now regulars rather than, say, Razor Ramon, Bret, and HBK only showing up once every 3 taping cycles like in '94.

    ReplyDelete
  36. During the KOTR tournament episodes a few weeks after this. It's completely anticlimactic though, and I'm sure the reaction in '96 was "And then Austin hits a jawbreaker and...wins the match? Weird."

    ReplyDelete
  37. WCW was less crappy when Nitro started. Yes there was still crap in both companies but as a teenager it wasn't unwatchable. ECW may have had the best year of the 3.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I guess so. The Dungeon of Doom just...ugh

    ReplyDelete
  39. I was like, "I NEED TO STOP READING THIS AND SCROLL DOWN AND POST... oh."

    ReplyDelete
  40. I need that thing a bit more snug

    ReplyDelete
  41. Did Shawn ever realize how lame his character was? And was it just HBK and HHH messing with people at this point or did they ever add more people to the crew?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, Shawn did, at least to an extent. It might have had something to do with his bad attitude/tantrums, as by his own admission, Shawn was rather immature, and he tended to make mountains out of molehills. Knowing that he was fighting a losing battle (on the character front, as well as business-wise) would have been hard for him to handle.

    ReplyDelete
  43. And he didn't add the KICK WHAM for awhile, right?

    ReplyDelete
  44. ah never saw this. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm not sure how anyone can get through those 1996 Raw episodes, good God.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I always wish al would have showcased his technical skills more than his goofy gimmicks, as he had some decent matches at various times. I remember a great match he had on smackdown against Perry Saturn. Should have busted out the snowsault and dragon sleeper more often. Can't help thinking he would have been a better fit for the thrillseekers (and I like lance storm), but then maybe he wouldn't have helped train glen.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Every time I saw a midcard Al Snow match at a house show, it was excellent. One of those was vs Saturn.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yup. Same.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Survivor Series 1996. Al Snow's best WWE Match. Nothing else comes close.

    ReplyDelete
  50. He had a pretty nice showcase match with Flash Funk at IYH: It's Time. I would consider that probably his best singles match.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I remember Leif Cassidy doing the "frustrated jobber/unstable guy on the edge" gimmick after The New Rockers split up. I was hoping they would do more with him. When RVD came in to do that ECW Invasion angle, I remember the WWF was openly promoting a Light Heavyweight Division starting up soon, and they made it seem like RVD, Cassidy, Flash Funk, etc. would have been prominently featured. Instead, RVD and Cassidy went down to ECW (which probably was the right move for both guys), and they ended up building around TAKA instead with a bunch of USWA jobbers padding out the division.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Did Nash refuse to job? (I'm being serious btw, once you're done laughing)

    ReplyDelete
  53. I actually enjoyed the early Stunner. The KICK WHAM set-up was entertaining, but it had a certain cartoonish quality (let's be honest, the Austin character in general basically became a cartoon by mid-98). The original Stunner was set up more methodically, and it fit the "cold calculating killer" vibe of the character at that time.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I may be wrong but the first KICK WHAM was against Triple H at IYH: Buried Alive. Coincidentally (or maybe not coincidentally) when he debuted his iconic "glass shatters" theme.

    ReplyDelete
  55. He had nothing on Avatar or Shinobi.

    ReplyDelete
  56. WWE = Dilbert principle.
    For 1996, I still mourn the never-happened Warrior-Michaels SurSer main event.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Warrior would actually fight two or three more times on RAW before his departure.



    Also, The Shawn/Bulldog angle while showing slight signs of Attitude Era type booking, did nothing for the Bulldog as a whole. I remember to recap some issues between Shawn and Bulldog in the past, they pretty much talked about how Shawn always beat him, for the I-C belt in '92, the '95 Rumble, and also eliminating him in the '96 Rumble. Yeah, way to build up a challenger.


    As for the whole Diana angle, the potential for an awesome payoff was there, but with the Hart's being uptight about the whole thing (as detailed in Bret's book), sadly it was not to be.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Man, you're forgetting Papi Chulo. You can't forget Papi Chulo.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I dont think he KICKED WHAMMED him at that one. I dont know when he debuted that.

    ReplyDelete
  60. warriors last raw match was against owen hart which was odd because he was just suspended before the match started. Thats why you don't tape a month in advance

    ReplyDelete
  61. They also would sell it as if it damaged their throat at first

    ReplyDelete
  62. AverageJoeEverymanApril 10, 2015 at 7:43 PM

    He had a real good IYH ppv opener vs Flash Funk too.

  63. Booze. Lots and lots of booze.
