Released: 4/1/14
Three-Disc Set

In honor of the man who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame tonight, my buddy Slackamania and I will be recapping the latest DVD set. Now the first set WWE released in 2005 clearly set out to make him look like a monstrous buffoon determined to unleash “Destrucity” through his poor wrestling skills and insane promos, but oh how time has healed all wounds. Especially when there’s an opportunity for the WWE to make some money here. Enough of the introduction, let’s get to the man of the hour: the WOYAH, if you will.

World Tag Team Champions: The Smoking Gunns (9/25/1995)

TONIGHT: Shawn Michaels makes a stunning revelation. Is he retiring from wrestling or not? Plus, is Billionaire Ted planning another “Raw rip-off”? It’s not just WCW that they take a stab at here tonight. Oh no! Vince then announces that the Bret Hart/British Bulldog In Your House PPV main event will air tonight for free! Screw you, paying customers! Also, Scheme Gene will be on the program. Okay, now let’s get RAW!

Cool new Raw intro on the THIRD anniversary show, by the way. Oddly enough for a promotion that cares so much about ‘milestones’, I don’t even think this was mentioned on the whole show.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jerry Lawler. Read the rest of this entry

1) The Fabulous Rougeaus and the British Bulldogs wrestle to a time limit draw at 11:19

Fun Fact: According to the Dynamite Kid’s book, there was real heat between him and Jacques Rougeau. In fact, there was a skirmish at a live event backstage, where Jacques sucker punched Dynamite in the face, fucking up his teeth. Dynamite wanted revenge and it was evident if it wasn’t for agents stepping in, it would have been real ugly. This match took place after that incident, and it’s rumored not to piss anyone off, Vince had it end in a draw. Still, many feared that Dynamite would take out revenge during the match, but he was a professional and didn’t take any liberties.

Fun Fact II: The Rougeau Brothers turned heel in May 1988, and kicked off a heated feud with the Killer Bees. Shortly after the turn, the Rougeaus began claiming that they were pro-American and would soon be relocating. This became a long running joke, as the Rougeaus began carrying little American flags to the ring and soon after this PPV, they added Jimmy Hart as their manager, and along with Hart came the classic theme song “All American Boys” and promises of a move from Canada to Memphis, TN. The storyline was really fun, and the Rougeaus drew some strong heat because of it.

Fun Fact III: This the British Bulldog’s final PPV tag match (they are at Survivor Series, but this is their final two-on-two tag match). Their final PPV record as a team is 1-4-1. Their lone win was at Wrestlemania II and the one draw occurs here. The four losses occurred at Wrestlemania III, Survivor Series 1987, Wrestlemania IV and Survivor Series 1988. After Survivor Series, Dynamite would not be seen on WWF TV ever again (other than vintage footage). After leaving the WWF in December, the Bulldogs returned to Stampede, where they won another tag title, but they eventually split and had a vicious feud. In 1990, they finally went their own ways, with Davey Boy going overseas for a brief run before returning as a solo act to the WWF. Dynamite wrestled for Stampede and in England, even forming a New British Bulldogs team, but by 1991 his back was in such bad shape he was forced into retirement and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Davey Boy will be back shortly in our review world, but sadly we will no longer have the pleasure of watching the Dynamite Kid ply his trade on a major PPV setting.
