Take The Book #4: WWF WrestleMania VIII

WrestleMania VIII happened on April 5th, 1992. The original card was carried by essentially three matches.

Take The Book #3: WCW Starrcade 1993!

1993 was a big year for World Championship Wrestling. Ric Flair returned to WCW after being in the WWF for just over a year. They had a lot of good talent to work with and throughout the year had put together some entertaining feuds.

After all, Starrcade was regarded as being WCW’s biggest event of the year.

Before I begin, let me just say that I would’ve done months leading up to the event totally differently. Sid Vicious would’ve stayed with the company and the same goes for the British Bulldog. Also, the Hollywood Blondes wouldn’t have had split up in October. Just thought I’d make that clear as I rebook Starrcade 1993! Read more
