The Irregular Selection. (Issue #1)

Issue #1
(Originally created: 4/16/2010)

This is going to be hopefully a regular column where I pick a random mix bag of wrestling matches that I’ve downloaded and never actually watched, but heard they were worth watching. We shall see if the word on the street is correct. Read the rest of this entry

Before the program, we see a past interview where the TV champ Steve Austin calls Ricky Steamboat yellow for ducking a title shot because he was home nursing some hurt ribs. Therefore, no more title shots for Ricky Steamboat. Well, Steamboat rips off his Ralph Lauren polo to reveal taped ribs. That proves everything!

Clash of the Champions #19 (06.92)

Clash of the Champions XIX
June 22, 1992
Charleston, SC
McAllister Fieldhouse

I know this really isn’t a good note to start out on, but according to ProWrestlingHistory.com, this was the lowest-rated Clash on TBS for the first 20 shows with just a 2.8. The lowest-rated Clash ever got a 2.6 one year later when some guys named Steve Austin & Brian Pillman took on Ric Flair & Arn Anderson in a main-event match that still makes people’s ears perk up today when they hear about the combination. Just something meaningless that I thought was sort of interesting.

On this night, WCW has brought in guys from all over the globe to compete in the first round of the NWA World Tag Titles tournament!

Your hosts are JR & Jesse! (Jesse’s first Clash and he’s pumped up!) Read the rest of this entry
