174-0 or 173-1 Clean

Hey Scott, Two Goldberg Streak Scenarios 1) You've probably answered this question but, if Goldberg HAD smashed Nash, what WOULD have been Chapter 2? Goldberg had run through the roster. Bam Bam was coming in but no one was buying him as a threat. NWO was quickly becoming a parody and even Hogan was fastly becoming irrelevant. ... Read more

WWE after part timers retire

Hi Scott,  This is a very open question in case you'd like to ruminate, but where do you see WWE after part-timers like HHH, Lesnar, Cena, Undertaker, etc. hang it up for good?  WWE's year revolves largely around WM as its focal point. And since WM 29 or so, WWE relies on part-timers to sell ... Read more

Spring Stampede 2000

https://ift.tt/2H3NKIb This was weird in that the wrestling is by and large pretty awful, but there's so much going on that it's still mildly watchable if you ignore the fact it's supposed to be a wrestling show and just gawp at the car crash I agree, it's strangely entertaining, as were most of Russo's reboots.

Money In The Bank winner from past eras

Hey Scott, If Money In The Bank existed way back in the late-80s, who do you think would've been some great briefcase holders?
