WWF Shotgun Saturday Night: The Forgotten Show Part One

Shotgun Saturday Night is a show that I’ve never watched. I couldn’t have told you any match that had ever happened on the program. As some may know, I’ve been doing a series looking at matches on the lesser known wrestling TV shows. First I looked at WCW Worldwide 2000 and then WWF Metal 2000. Now, I’m looking at a rather unique show that the WWF put on starting in 1997. Read more

At Look Back At: The 1998 PWI 500 Rankings

It’s the eighth installment looking back the PWI 500 magazines that have become a popular publication over the years. 1998 saw the WWF get a lead in the ratings war, while WCW was still highly popular. ECW continued to grow throughout the year, as well.

Unlike last year, the number one ranked wrestler is a toss up between a WCW wrestler and a WWF wrestler. There isn’t controversy attached to this years ranking.

Reminder, I don’t look at every wrestler in the magazine, but a full list of the rankings can be found HERE.

The grading period was from August 1st 1997 to August 31st, 1998. Read more

Inside The Magazine Volume #12: The Wrestler Winter ’95


It’s one of the first magazines I remember ever purchasing from Wegmans after hounding my mother to spend a measly $2.50 considering I was only six at the time. For the most part, magazines like the Wrestler were the only ways I kept up with wrestling. Aside from watching Livewire and the occasional Nitro, I didn’t actually watch much wrestling at such a young age. So, in my early years the Apter Mags, as they are so often called, was my main outlet for acquiring knowledge. Of course, it would be months after the fact, but whatever.

Inside this magazine we find out the fear that is preventing the Steiner Brothers from competing in WCW or WWF. A preview for a match between Sting and Hulk Hogan that WILL HAPPEN! Plus, Dr. Yankeem bringing the Undertaker back from dead and the Heavenly Bodies having a bone to pick with Jim Cornette over the WWF Tag Team Championships. All that plus the usual good stuff from the Wrestler! Lets check it out! Read more
