In early 1992, Money Incorporated formed consisting of Ted DiBiase, IRS and Jimmy Hart. In short time, they won the tag titles in February when Hart inserted the new team into a match against the Legion of Doom instead of his clients, the Natural Disasters. Naturally, Earthquake and Typhoon didn’t like that and they began to feud. They’d have match at WrestleMania, but there wasn’t a decisive winner thanks to Money Inc. taking a count-out loss.
Eventually, the Natural Disasters would win the WWF Tag Team Championships on July 20th, 1992 at a house show in Worcester, MA. They’d have a brief feud with the Beverly Brothers over the summer before Money Inc. reemerged as challengers in the fall. Which, sets up the match I’m focusing on in this article.
The match took place on October 13th, 1992 and aired on November 1st on WWF Wrestling Challenge, which was a syndicated show for the WWF. The title match took place in Regina, SK. (more…)

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. (more…)

1992 is one of my favorite years in professional wrestling. WWF had most of the top names in wrestling and the rise of Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels, plus whacky characters like Papa Shango! WCW had a stellar roster too. But, the focus for this article is on the WWF. I’ll be looking through the year and mention both the good and the bad for what was happening.
Of course, this will be broken up into two parts. Part one will highlight what happened from January 1st to June 30th, 1992. Here we go… (more…)
