  1. Ohhhh I gotta get on that asap

  2. I think Bayless did Val Venis and it didn't sound like any fun. It seemed like he tied every question into politics and not the fun to hear about wrestling politics either.

    ReplyDelete
  3. They should do Bret timelines for 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997 too. Then have him do some WCW ones as well until 1999. I'd buy them all.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yeah, it was really bad.

    Here is the review for that

  5. I wouldn't have a problem with them doing the Timeline concept with different people yet keeping the same year. For example, having Bret do a 1995 shoot would be interesting to me since it would be a non-Kliq perspective.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I hope you review this one Bayless. It sounds interesting and you always do a great job. Thanks Brian!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Maybe if Ivory were naked. Man would she still get it. The problem of course is that so many of the real big names are either still tied to the company or would cost insane money.

    ReplyDelete
  8. They have to do 1997 with Bret. That would print money.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I can't tell you how shocked I was as a sort-of-mark in 1992 that Bret Hart one the title ... in a good way.

    ReplyDelete
  10. For sure. Jim Cornette's was real fun for that year, but it was more about ranting about his frustrations with creative than some of the exact booking of the time. For these, I want more discussions of the booking of angles or crazy stories of the period.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yeaaa it was rough to say the least. "So the I Quit match...Foley and Rock..." " Well you know who needs to fucking quit is the republicans...."

    ReplyDelete
  12. She's an interesting case. I found her so unattractive during her run, then saw her in lingerie for that Divas dvd(with Torrie on the cover) and she looked amazing

    ReplyDelete
  13. For what it's worth that's probably my favorite timeline overall

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thank You


    And next week, I am reviewing the Bret Hart Timeline

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, same. I just gave it to a friend since after you see one of these shoots, you really don't need to see them again. The only shoot interview I've ever kept is an autographed copy of the Ultimate Warrior shoot he did for Ringside Collectibles.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That was a great Saturday to watch Superstars and find that out.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That or "I don't really remember," "I wasn't involved, so I'm not sure" or "eh, you know, it was whatever it was."

    ReplyDelete
  18. In other shoot interview news


    KC announced two other timelines that have wrapped filming


    1981 WWE as told by Rick Martel
    1998 ECW as told by New Jack




    RF Video has filmed shoots with Teddy Long, Curt Hawkins, and Brodus Clay. They have also announced shoots to be filmed with Eric Bischoff and Ricky Steamboat

    ReplyDelete
  19. I know nothing about 1981 WWE, but Rick Martel is a good interview. He's very well spoken and tells some good stories. That might be a good shoot.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The Martel one sounds interesting... the New Jack one... well... not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Who should do 1998 ECW? My picks would be RVD, Dreamer, Heyman, or Jerry Lynn.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Acquired mines last night.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Any one of those would be fine... but Jerry Lynn is the only one that could do something like that now. Unless they got rid of Dreamer's office job.... I don't remember.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yeah, I was just being hypothetical.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Martel might be well spoken but he has a thick ass accent that i cant really cut through.

    ReplyDelete
  26. RVD would be very good.
    Taz would be nice as well since it was the start of his main event push

    ReplyDelete
  27. Taz would be a good one too. He seems like a guy who was pretty close to everything.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yikes, this one's really gonna set off that HartKiller dude.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You wanna hear 2 hours of how many wrestlers came to him with tears in his eyes?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes. Tears come to my eyes just thinking of it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Bret Hart YouShoot Question #1: C'mon Bret, were you really seeing "Sunny days"?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nash's '95 tops my list.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Same here.

    But I also like 93-95 with Luger/Pac/Nash respectively

    ReplyDelete
  34. If Bret does a YouShoot, Im asking why in your book everyone had "tears in their eyes" after your matches?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Such a question might require making a video with water streaming all over your face. "Bret, I have so many tears in my eyes just for getting to ask you a question!"

    ReplyDelete
  36. YUP.
    1. Cornette 97
    2. Nash 95
    3. Waltman 94

    For me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. ughh never again am I sitting thru that

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes. Bret is bitter and doesn't give a shit and he'll rip on everyone who crossed him.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That...might be the greatest idea in the history of the BoD.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That's strange. Val Venis is practically a Republican. Why was he complaining about them?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hmm so what years are we missing at this point? Lets just stick with 90s. WWF- 90, 91, 96, 98 ( I think). WCW - 90, 92, 94-99.???

    ReplyDelete
  42. $10 says you don't get past late January w/o hearing how great he was at something. Love ya Bret, but you've had every bit as much smoke blown up your ass as Hogan has.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I was just using a random politcal complaint, I dont know or remember what side he is on

    ReplyDelete
  44. It was actually in my local newspaper the day after it happened.... with a huge picture of Flair's pulled down trunks.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jim Cornette should do 1996. I can't think of anyone else they could get for it that was anything. Unless they wanted to toss a shit ton of money at Steve Austin or HBK.


    1990 and 1991 WWF are hard because you can't do Warrior, Savage, Perfect due to their deaths. Heenan is hard to understand now (unfortunately). Hogan would be hilarious, but he isn't doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I also think New Jack is a good choice for an ECW Timeline


    He understands wrestling and is a lot more business savvy than people give him credit.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sullivan did 96 WCW

    ReplyDelete
  48. Didn't it just happen twice?

    ReplyDelete
  49. They should get Nash for 97 or 98 WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I was actually thinking Bischoff.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Pritchard just did a RF video, if you like creative side.
    I'm drawing a blank on 96 WWF as far as talent.

    Ahmed Johnson (googily moogily!) was pretty much on his way to being a top guy in 96.

    ReplyDelete
  52. He has all his books. Have you ever read Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express scrapbook 25th anniversary?


    lol.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Not bad either


    Bisch for 1997 would be a good choice

    ReplyDelete
  54. Cornette is doing 1989 WCW too. I think it is being released in early 2015

    ReplyDelete
  55. On second thought, they should do Sunny for 1996. She was the best manager in the company.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Marc Mero would be a decent '96 pick, but obviously his stuff may be a little foggy before his debut. Not sure how involved or around he was in WWE at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I only read the book once but im guessing it happened more often, especially the way the IWC says it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thats a miss in my book.


    Flair needs the paydays, he would have been my shoe-in for 89

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yeah, because the IWC never exaggerates anything.

    The only person who I can remember doing it was Jimmy Hart, who seems like an emotional dude.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Sunny would awesome. She knows the business and was on top... giggity

    ReplyDelete
  61. Mero didnt come in until after WM12 IIRC

    ReplyDelete
  62. See I would more inclined to not have repeats.


    Now re-dos... definitely because like said before 99-01 is just atrocious and early in the timeline series that definitely need a redo.


    But also because I think that there should be TOP talent and a creative side as well for each year so you can get a good look from both sides of the coin.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Mero wouldn't be bad, as he was in the upper midcard and facing Steve Austin and Faarooq and such. However, since he came in after WrestleMania, he wouldn't really know much about anything prior to that. Of the people they could get, Sunny may be the best one for the whole year.


    Even Ahmed Johnson is a problem because he got injured in the summer of '96, so he wouldn't have much to say about the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That string of shows early on with Russo where they had a surprise return every single week. I nearly died when Ahmed Johnson returned.

    ReplyDelete
  65. For 96 WWF, I think that Austin would be the ideal choice

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hope followed by dismay followed by 05-06 hope followed by dismay and then indifference.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Also like to add the cage match between AMW and Triple X with the infamous Elix Skipper tightrope frankenstiener.

    ReplyDelete
  68. For sure. My dream 1996 list would be (excluding Vince obviously):


    1-Austin
    2-HBK
    3-Sunny
    4-Jim Cornette


    That said, I bet we get the damn Godwinns or something.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The problem with Jack isn't his acumen, its that he really wasnt a fixture in 98 ECW on top.



    By that time, The Gangstaz had passed and moved onto the Dudleys, Now Bubba Ray for 98? That would be better cuz of how intertwined he was with promotion as well as being half of the top tag team of the company.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Everyone's answer should be Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yeah, 99-01 is awful.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Taz, like you said, would be a good choice.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Missed Opportunities. TNA had 12 years to hook fans, but found new ways to muck things up at every possible turn. Instead of going in the direction of being an alternative product to WWE, they slowly regressed into being a painfully mediocre, watered-down version of WWE, or if you want to get really nasty, later year versions of WCW. Poor management and nearly non-existent advertisement campaigns have almost made their decade plus history completely irrelevant.

    ReplyDelete
  74. The 2003 Super X Cup weekly PPV show was just classic. Juvi was in the zone, and I thought for sure Teddy Hart was going to star in the promotion after this. One of my all time favorite wrestling shows, a perfect tournament. Plus I think the show ended with a War Games style cage match.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can you pay for Austin though is the question?


    I mean for every year I would pick Pat Patterson. or Vince, but really its either a deal of


    1. Still in mafia
    2. cant afford
    3. both

    ReplyDelete
  76. just as Leonard answered I am taken by surprise that a single mom can make $7907 in a few weeks on the internet . check my source ........ PAYRAP.ℭℴℳ

    ReplyDelete
  77. That is the thing.


    Austin has his podcast too and might not want to do anything with another company that is not the WWE

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thats true he was injured by Simmons or was that kayfabe?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wow if I make that, I can save TNA!

    ReplyDelete
  80. No, it was legit. He almost died.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Flair is under WWE contract right now though.


    But Flair would be great for that year

    ReplyDelete
  82. Ahmed Johnson returned?! How did I miss that one?!

    ReplyDelete
  83. im just saying... the joke has been established.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yeah ... It was just so random ... you were conditioned to think of a certain guy as champ and I honestly would never in a million years in 1992 pick Bret Hart to be WWF champ.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh hell yeah. Ross would be great for 1996 or the Attitude Era in general because of his work at talent relations.

    ReplyDelete
  86. He's way too big of a vagina to really go into detail with any of the good stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  87. The Scott D'Amore and Dutch Mantell booked Knockout Division. When they booked the division they had compelling storylines, good matches, and interesting characters. The Gail Kim-Awesome Kong feud, the Beautiful People bullying Roxie LaRue, ODB being outrageous. Even when the rest of the roster was involved in badly booked nonsense you could always count on the Knockouts to be entertaining. Of course once Vince Russo started booking the division and it got integrated into the rest of the TNA booking it became really bad, really quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Oh thats right.


    You know he aint fucking over Vince now... well... it is about WCW, so he could get a pass on that.

    ReplyDelete
  89. My bad, I meant was Simmons injuring him kayfabe? I know the kidney was legit, but was Simmons the reason he got put out?

    ReplyDelete
  90. The tears thing only happened once or twice, but in the WWF years of the book, every chapter Bret talks about people coming up to him after a match and telling him how great it was (or it was the best match of the night/its type).

    I found it off putting at first. But these days, I find his boasts somewhat cute and endearing in a crazy grandpa kind of way.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Didn't he have an interview on the show and got into a fight with Triple H after Warrior squashed him and he was blaming Sable?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Jeff Hardy's Inner Monologue for the win.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Taz would be a good get.

    ReplyDelete
  94. From what I've been able to gather from that time period + what I remember seeing, I think it was Simmons responsibility because he was way too stiff with some of the kicks he gave to Ahmed. Simmons has a reputation as a stiff worker, so it wouldn't surprise me.


    Just think, wrestling history may have been forever changed because of a few stiff kicks (and that doesn't even tough Goldberg smashing Bret in the head).

    ReplyDelete
  95. I liked how Bret called George Steele a mother fucker.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yeah. That was how they introduced him and paired him with Sable, which gave us Mero's first feud with Triple H. That lasted until the KOTR.

    ReplyDelete
  97. That they gave their company the acronym most closely associated with tits and ass.

    ReplyDelete
  98. He looks more and more like Stu each day

    ReplyDelete
  99. I cracked up at the story of Owen tossing the Halliburton (which I assume was Steele's?) off a bridge and into the river.

    ReplyDelete
  100. 2 things:
    1) Jeff Jarrett's insistence on always being the centerpiece for the first 8 years of the company.....and still not being over
    2) TNA Had as close of a chance at re-creating the Goldberg-like phenomenon that they needed: Monty Brown....and they dropped the ball by turning him into a heel gopher for guess who? Which in a sense goes back to #1: Jeff Jarrett has to be the centerpiece of everything. Monty Brown - if used correctly - could have been big enough to singlehandedly save the company.....and they screwed it up, and he left to become a little-used bit player in WWE and left the business entirely. It's a shame really. The guy was a monster and should have been allowed to be just that, not to mention he had the "look" and possibly could have went more mainstream. TNA has screwed up other ways (releasing Jay Lethal, not pushing the X-Division, incredibly botching the whole Pacman Jones thing, Vince Russo....period) but that is #1.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Bad Influence. The show hit rock bottom the minute they left. I still watch somewhat, but the show just isn't fun without them.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Has Jimmy Hart done a timeline? He seems like a great guy to do the early WWF.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Here's my question?

    Do you think there would be an audience for Timelines or AWA/SMW/WCCW?

    ReplyDelete
  104. I don't think anyone could miss Ahmed Johnson.


    HE'S FAT.

    ReplyDelete
  105. The thing was that the Faarooq incident occurred during the live portion of Raw. They still had another week or two to tape, including Ahmed's battle royal victory to guarantee him a title shot (I always wondered what that was setting up). Simmons was to blame, I believe, but: 1. Ahmed has proven that he has a brittle body. 2. He wrestled afterwards (I think) while not knowing something was wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'd buy a Cornette shoot about the SMW in general. Just in terms of how he ran it, what he wished he could change, how it declined, etc. I wouldn't do a timeline of a specific year of the promotion, though.


    So basically, no.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Crikey Mate Down Under AussieJuly 31, 2014 at 10:14 AM

    "I’m fairly sure you just became the most popular female (only female?) on the BoD."



    I'm sure Princess will have something to say about this.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I think he came in 84 as well... maybe 85.



    Never saw 85 WWF (thats Valentine IIRC)



    But he has never done a timeline though

    ReplyDelete
  109. By the way, Jessexpress = Total Awesomeness lol

    ReplyDelete
  110. That whenever given a choice between a logical option and a stupid option they unfailingly chose the stupid option.

    ReplyDelete
  111. So a year by year would be out, but a general TIMELINE: WCCW hosted by Kevin Von Erich highlighting specific dates?

    ReplyDelete
  112. I really enjoyed that Number 1 contender's battle royal they ran on RAW. The finish between Ahmed-Goldust is red hot. I also wonder what they were going for with Ahmed winning. I have to think the plans were still for Vader to beat HBK and run Vader-Ahmed?!? No way they were thinking of running Ahmed-HBK, but 11 year old me was excited as hell about the possibility of that match. HBK-Ahmed was sort of like the big dream match for the WWF in 1996.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I think that would work. They could get Greg Gagne for AWA or something.

    ReplyDelete
  114. The one negative I will think of is how Samoa Joe never got to the level he could have. I'm still foggy on the details, but I just remember he was going to be the top monster badass heel, and then he was just some guy.

    For a positive, I will think of how they did actually provide an alternative to WWE by having guys that WWE didn't. AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe, the Motorcity Machineguns, Kaz, Petey Williams, America's Most Wanted, Bobby Roode, etc. These are guys who could put on great matches on television, and at times, TNA seemed like ROH at a higher level with a TV deal.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Elix Skipper walking the cage.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Easy: whenever I think of TNA, two things immediately come to mind: WCW version 2.0, and Jeff Jarrett. And neither one of those is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Also the Ultimate X matches with the six sided ring was something that I will always remember about TNA. Ultimate X and AJ Styles.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Especially coming off that loss to Davey Boy... I was sure he went down the ranks. Now of course, I know that dropping the IC title was the stepping stone to the main event.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Absolutely. The only problem with some (AWA) is the age of the people who would be good candidates. Verne and Nick aren't well, so it would have to be Greg.

    ReplyDelete
  120. It was like savage/steamboat
