WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches (DISC ONE)

WWE – Unreleased: Never Before Seen Matches
1986-1995
Disc One

WWE: The History of the Intercontinental Championship – Disc One
Released: 11/25/2008

Your host is Todd Grisham. He mentions how almost every major superstar in the WWE has won the Intercontinental title on their way to the top. Grisham then explains the origin of the IC belt where Pat Patterson won the North American championship and the South American championship down in Rio de Janeiro (the place where all fake title wins happen!) to make up the new title. Let me just say that as far as Todds go, Pettingell > Grisham. Read the rest of this entry

[4]: Chief Jay Strongbow & Billy White Wolf won a three-team tournament, defeating the Executioners and Tor Kamata & Nikolai Volkoff.
[5]: This was a tournament final. Shortly after Chief Jay Strongbow & Billy White Wolf won the tag belts, Billy White Wolf suffered a neck injury during a match against Ken Patera; he and Strongbow had to give up the belts.
[6]: Bob Backlund & Pedro Morales won the tag titles in a 2/3 falls match. Backlund and Morales had to relinguish the belts since Backlund was the WWF world champion at the time.

[8]: At Survivor Series, Diesel and Shawn Michaels were forced to abandon the tag titles when they could no longer function as a team.
[9]: This was a tournament final.

[15]: This was a four-team match which also included The Rock & D’Lo Brown and the New Age Outlaws.
[16]: Mankind chose to defend the tag titles on his own when Kane refused to team with him.
[17]: This was a three-on-two handicap match also involving the Hardys’ manager, Michael PS Hayes. Bradshaw & Faarooq won when Bradshaw pinned Hayes.
[18]: This was a “Dark Side Rules” match in which Viscera, Big Show, and Mideon were the actual opponents for the Rock & Mankind.
[19]: Because he was not getting along with the Rock at the time this match was held, Mankind refused to participate and instead sat outside the ring with his back to the action.
[20]: This was a triangle ladder match which also included the Hardy Boyz.
[21]: This was a four-way elimination match which also included the Hardy Boyz and Test & Albert.
