DISC ONE

Your host is newcomer Renee Young. She’s decked out in a lab coat with a chemistry set. Unlike various countdowns with quick clips and talking head comments, each rivalry listed gets narrated by a wrestler. While reviewing the countdown, my boy Slack will also give his brief thoughts on each ranking. Read the rest of this entry

Crockett Cup ’86

The 1st Annual Crockett Cup
April 13, 1986
New Orleans, LA
The Superdome

The best of Bill Watts’ UWF and Jim Crockett Promotions come together to compete in a day long 24-tag team tournament with a grand prize of a million dollars! Oh yeah, and to honor the late Jim Crockett Sr. too, of course. It’s wrestling history, BAYBEE!

Your hosts are David Crockett and Tony Schiavone. Hooray Read the rest of this entry

Bunkhouse Stampede ’88

NWA Bunkhouse Stampede ‘88
January 24, 1988
Uniondale, NY
Nassau Coliseum

Just when JCP thought it was safe to air a PPV without McMahon coming along and tricking the cable companies into choosing to air his PPVs over the NWA’s PPV, Vince airs a free show with the debut of the Royal Rumble over on the USA network. No biggie though, the card wasn’t even that good to begin with and a less than mediocre WrestleMania card was coming.

Your hosts are Jim Ross and Bob Caudle! Read the rest of this entry

The Great American Bash Tour ’86 Highlights

NWA The Great American Bash Tour 1986
July 5, 1986 & July 26, 1986

Memorial Stadium

This is just a 2-hour tour highlights tape. I believe the only match in full is the Flair/Rhodes world title match from 7/26.

Your hosts are David Crockett and Tony Schiavone. Read the rest of this entry

Superstars of the Superstation 2/86

NWA Superstars on the Superstation
February 7, 1986
Atlanta, GA
The Omni

(Taped on February 2, 1986)

This was the first big try at a supercard on Turner’s WTBS which would later become known as Clash of the Champions by March of 1988. It started as an opportunity for the fan’s to write in and tell the Crocketts just exactly what they wanted to see; kind of like Taboo Tuesday minus the internet by using the old-fashioned way of actually sitting down and writing letters. The whole pen and paper thing is, yeah, COMPLETELY ridiculous. But that’s how they did things back in the day. Read the rest of this entry

Starrcade 1985

NWA Starrcade ’85: The Gathering
November 28, 1985
Atlanta, GA & Greensboro, NC
The Omni & Greensboro Coliseum

This is the original show that gave Vince the idea to book a “multi-location” show, except Vince had to one-up Crockett and book his WrestleMania in three different venues ALL over the country. The tape I have starts out in G-boro and then switches back and forth between cities until we reach Flair/Rhodes in ATL, which I can only assume is how it was presented on CCTV.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Bob Caudle, with Johnny Weaver conducting interviews in Greensboro. Shame the man couldn’t be in two places at once, because I would love for a good old school Ric Flair promo to be on here. Read the rest of this entry
