The Owen Hart YouTube Mixtape (Part 1)
Anyone who uses Dailymotion anymore knows they have constant commercial interruptions and I just don’t want to put you through that in order to enjoy this edition of the mixtape. I’m sticking with loyal YouTube that doesn’t succumb us to commercials for wrestling matches because no one can become a partner unless you own the material. Anyways!
So Owen Hart wins by a landslide. Not surprising, but no one even came close. Read the rest of this entry

Even crazy North Koreans love the NATURE BOY! WOOOO!
Your hosts are Eric Bischoff, Mike Tenay and Sonny Oono. Possibly the most boring announce team ever. Bischoff and Oono make some elitist exchanges for their country throughout the show. It seems unnecessary considering this is supposed to be an exhibition for peace.

Clash of the Champions #19 (06.92)
Clash of the Champions XIX
June 22, 1992
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
