WWE: nWo – The Revolution DVD Review (Disc One)

Released: November 6, 2012

My buddy Slackamania (just a nickname, he’s not insane) and I will be double-teaming this review. He’s a die-hard wrestling fan from way back in the day just like me, so I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the program, while I will be handling the special features – like a boss. Is that still cool to say? Was it ever cool to say? I don’t know, but hopefully you’ll keep reading. Read the rest of this entry

The current WCW champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Hollywood Hogan (8/10/1996)

Just to remind you of a little ECW history, this is the night after ECW’s first PPV. For whatever reason or measures WCW took, there are barely any ECW signs at all, ECW t-shirts, only one minor ECW chant, and no bWo shirts of any kind that I saw. Its very interesting and makes you wonder why considering the ECW faithful would normally show up in droves any time the WWF got near Philly back in those days. Except for Hat Guy, maybe they were all too hung over for another night of wrestling.

Let Us Take You Back To Last Week: The nWo settled their differences and DDP calls out Randy Savage only for Hollywood Hogan to try and handle the guy. Then Sting appears and stands between them pointing a baseball bat.

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