The Velveteen Dream: A Unique Experience

There is no question that WWE’s breakout network-exclusive NXT brand is largely responsible for introducing some of today’s brightest wrestling stars to the masses. From former world champions, indy darlings, and Japanese strikers, to some of the most colorful women, cruiserweights, and characters of the last decade, most have stepped through the NXT curtain well on their way to dazzle crowds on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown Live! on Tuesdays. Patrick Clark will prove to be no different… Except, there is something about him that is. The newly dubbed “Velveteen Dream” has not only grabbed my attention, but has been able to spark my interest in a product I no longer really go out of my way to watch. Read more

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

At the end of 1991, a new stable of wrestlers named the Dangerous Alliance stormed into World Championship Wrestling led by Paul E. Dangerously. He recruited top wrestlers Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson and Larry Zbyszko to form one of the best stables in wrestling history. It wouldn’t take long before the group would hold several of the top titles in the company.
