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! (more…)

First off, I have to thank my good friend Bob Colling for not only giving me the forum for this column, but, also for giving me the OK to piggyback off of his concept for recapping magazines.

While “Inside the Magazine” is something of a catch all, featuring whatever magazines Bob has access to. Retro Reading is going to focus specifically on the 1980’s.

As a young fan in the 1980’s and 90’s, the wrestling magazines were intrinsic to my childhood. Even before I could actually read, I would just look at the pictures whenever my father, grandfather, or uncle would get one, or would just have one lying around. Then, later on, when I got older and got an allowance, I would not only buy them for myself, but I would order back issues.
