Girlfriend Watches: WCW UnCensored ’95

Posted: May 4, 2017 by Bob Colling in Uncategorized

So, I have managed to get my girlfriend (Carly) interested in professional wrestling. She enjoys the action and characters and the whole deal. At least she does for now. I suggested that we go back and watch some old stuff and I figured why not document her reaction/thoughts. Lets see how this experiment goes.

There were several shows to choose from and I decided to go with an all-time classic… WCW UnCensored ’95. The full card/results for the show are as follows, Read the rest of this entry »

Jinder Mahal

Sid

Well, Jinder Mahal is currently the number one contender for the WWE Championship at WWE Backlash on May 21st, 2017. What is remarkable to me, is that Mahal had been a jobber for the duration of his WWE career, at least for the most part. He got some attention at WrestleMania involving Mojo and Rob Gronkowski, but he hadn’t established himself in a WWE ring since his return last year to the company.

So, before his match with Randy Orton at Backlash, which airs live on the WWE Network for $9.99 a month (you’re welcome WWE), I decided to look on the internet to watch Jinder Mahal in action outside of a WWE ring. As expected, there wasn’t a lot of options to pick from. However, I happened to stumble upon a match that caught my interest. Read the rest of this entry »

RETRO READING
Vol. 2: WRESTLING SUPERSTARS – SPRING 1984

This is another quarterly magazine from TV Sports, which I actually received by mistake. During my teen years, when I was reading an old magazine that I’d ordered, I learned that they had actually published quite a few other magazines besides PWI, Inside Wrestling, and The Wrestler. Without internet access, I wrote them a letter asking if they had any back issues of those available. They sent along a list, no pictures and no descriptions, just a list of titles and issues. I ordered the spring edition of Wrestling 84, but was actually sent this one instead. I wrote them another letter, explaining the mistake, and they sent along the right one.
