This time around I take a look at a World Wrestling Entertainment house show that took place on August 29th, 2003 in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s a RAW brand show, so the major angles are Goldberg chasing after WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H, Kane has been unmasked and tormenting his former best friend, Rob Van Dam.
Do we get a Goldberg appearance? Lets check out the show and see if it’s something we’d go to looking back at it. (more…)

The first edition of a new series I’m doing is called Inside The Magazine, which is rather self-explanatory. I have way too many magazines, and that number continues to grow. I thought it might be interesting to take a look inside some of the old magazines and look at what was written about, maybe something crazy happened at the time. Perhaps in the results section of a PWI there was a shocking match or something along those lines. I think this will be fun…
I have plenty of magazines to choose from, so it’s really just the first one out of a pile. For this first installment, I’ll be looking at The Wrestler Magazine from June 1995. The cover of the magazine is the British Bulldog who is hyped as barking and is ready to bite. Mind you, this is before his heel turn on WWF television. There appears to be quite a lot about Big Bubba Rogers, as well. (more…)

Last week, I took a look at the first ever Pro Wrestling Illustrated 500 ranking list. The journey of revisiting that history continues here as I look at the 1992 installment of the list. I should note that I’m considering the January to December timeframe in the first installment. I looked up the apparent timeframe that is from August of the previous year to July 31st of the actual year. That being said, I’ll try to maintain my opinions strictly by that timeframe. It seemed as if the 1991 version was covering most of the year, anyway.
For a complete list of the PWI 500 check it out HERE.
That being said, here we go. The notable names from the 1992 PWI 500 with the grading period of August 1st 1991 to July 31st 1992. (more…)
