Oh boy, I’ve been dreading this one. Remember – this card is supposed to have the Kevin Nash versus Goldberg rematch.

We get a video package that makes you feel pretty bleak about the future as they show us what happened in the Goldberg and Kevin Nash match from Starrcade with Nash’s hand held high and WCW world title over his shoulder in the end.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Read the rest of this entry

LAST WEEK ON RAW: WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels was publicly fired by Vince McMahon for still having a little “DX” in him to end the program. Not one to lay down for anybody, HBK gives Vince SWEET CHIN MUSIC and babyfaces himself in one single moment. They show Vince eating shoe leather from about seven different angles in a matter of five seconds. Hilarious. Apparently at some point this week, Vince told whomever will listen on WWF.com that he’s going to “dismember” Shawn Michaels. We’ll hear from Shawn Michaels from his home in San Antonio via satellite later tonight.

HOT ENOUGH? Your hosts are Kevin Kelly and Shane McMahon. Read the rest of this entry

PDRwrestling Joins Ko-Fi!

Guys, many of you know I’ve been recapping old wrestling from the 70s into the 90s (and beyond!) for more years than I’m willing to admit and I just don’t want to miss out on anything worth watching.

Is there something out there in the wrestling world that I have missed and haven’t been talking about? Is there a match you want me to recap that I haven’t already written about – no matter how good or how bad? I’ll gladly do this for you at your request for a small fee of $3. Do you want me to do a whole show? I’ll gladly do that for $15. I DON”T REALLY CARE WHAT PROMOTION IT’S FROM. I don’t even care what decade it’s from. I just want to provide for you – the wrestling fan and the PDRwrestling fan – a personal recap experience that I hope you will enjoy.

Reach out – let’s have some fun. I’ll be eternally grateful and I must say that I have definitely appreciated all of the support I’ve received over these many years!
