Girlfriend Watches: WWF SNME #21

In the last poll, there was a tie between ECW Barely Legal 1997 and WCW Bash at the Beach 1996 to be viewed on a future edition. It’s likely that she’ll watch Barely Legal first. There’s no timeframe on when this will happen, but be on the lookout for it!

The previous two editions of this series saw my girlfriend, Carly, watched WCW UnCensored 1995 and WWF King of the Ring 1996. Both of which, are three hour pay per views. This time around, I decided to go with a change of pace and length. Carly sat down and watched a WWF Saturday Night Main Event from 1989. The hour special usually had several high profile matches in a tighter time schedule.

Find out Carly’s reaction to guys like Rick Rude, Randy Savage, Big Bossman, and Demolition! Read more of this post

The Good & The Bad: WWF 1992 Part One

1992 is one of my favorite years in professional wrestling. WWF had most of the top names in wrestling and the rise of Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, plus whacky characters like Papa Shango!

What If Ted DiBiase Won The WWF World Championship In ’88?

It has been highly rumored that at WrestleMania IV Ted DiBiase was scheduled to win the WWF World Championship, but due to political bickering backstage, that never happened. Instead, Randy Savage won the WWF World Championship at WrestleMania IV by beating DiBiase. Read more of this post

Take The Book #4: WWF WrestleMania VIII

WrestleMania VIII happened on April 5th, 1992. The original card was carried by essentially three matches. Randy Savage vs. Ric Flair for the WWF World Championships, Bret Hart vs. Roddy Piper for the WWF Intercontinental Championship and Hulk Hogan taking on Sid Justice in the main event. I’ve always considered it to be one of my favorite Manias because it’s one of the first. However, I’ve looked at the card and the roster at that time and figured I could make a better show. So, here is my attempt at that. Of course, this is assuming everything went smooth and there weren’t any firings during the year. Read more of this post
