Howdy Blog O'Doomers!
Hope everyone had a good weekend and are excited for another week of life. I really enjoy reading this blog and reading these comments and last week we seemed to have a nice run of dream matches or pairings that never happened and some that did.
As Scott and I both mentioned in one of the threads the ultimate babyface team of Tito Santana and Ricky Steamboat did team up once against the Dream Team in like 1985 or something. It is on YouTube in full and yes it's awesome as it sounds. For one thing it's at the old Maple Leaf Gardens with the long ramp and for another Steamboat and Tito decided to wear matching baby blue trunks to further cement their babyfaced-ness.
The Hogan-Dusty pairing never happened to my knowledge and why didn't they have a tag match against Savage and DiBiase on a SNME is well beyond me. For one thing we could book this match ourselves with the The Real American Dreams storming to the ring (separate entrances of course) and cleaning house for five minutes with DiBiase and Savage bumping from pillar to post. The Million Dollar Macho Kings (Fantasy Sports Team Name Alert!) eventually take over, with some distraction from Sherri and pound Dusty through a commercial break. Eventually Dusty makes the hot tag and in 1990 there's no human being alive that could survive the big boot-elbow drop-leg drop combo right?
Figuring out how to do the Megapowers vs. Demolition in 1988 would be a lot harder. The Demos were still heels at Summerslam but they held the straps so you couldn't just job them in the main event. So you would have to have the Harts stay heel, regain the title at Wrestlemania IV and then that frees up Demolition to be bought by DiBiase to end the Megapowers and there's your Summerslam match. Demos could win the titles at the fall SNME against the Harts or someone else and still have a year-long reign and still turn at Survivor Series.
Anyway for TV tonight:
Women's World Cup: U.S. vs. Colombia at 8 p.m.
College World Series: Virginia vs. Vanderbilt.
RAW of course
American Ninja Warrior
HBO is doing a documentary of the gun violence in America that happened in the spring of 2014. How ironic is that? The sequel is happening before my eyes.
Enjoy the night and keep it clean!
