Before we get started, we see Hollywood Hogan, Eric Bischoff, the Giant, and the Disciple all react to their dressing room being vandalized by the “OWN” or “One Warrior Nation”. When they leave to go to the ring to confront Warrior, Vincent comes up telling them that members of the nWo B&W have been taken out in an ambulance as see an ambulance leave the arena. Hollywood Hogan is having the WORST DAY EVER! The crew now head to the ring looking for the Warrior. Hogan confirms that Brian Adams and Scott Norton were the ones in the ambulance. Hogan randomly brings up Bret Hart and kicks him off the team for Wargames and replaces him with the Giant since Bret dared to put his hands on the “GOD of wrestling”. Back to Warrior, Hogan says Warrior will have to prove himself worthy before Hogan accepts a match with him. Hogan believes the Disciple would die for him and says there’s no way Warrior can get through the Giant. Hogan calls for the Warrior one last time to show himself, but there’s no Warrior.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zbyszko. Schiavone reminds us tonight is the kickoff for the FOURTH year of Monday Nitro. Read the rest of this entry

Hollywood Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Elizabeth, and the Disciple show up to the building in a black limo. They seem to be in high spirits despite having to deal with the Warrior last week and the fact that he’s starting a REVOLUTION tonight. They go straight from the limo the ring to discuss what they want to discuss. Bischoff pulls out a pen from his jacket to prove a point that the pen is the most powerful thing in the universe [besides Hollywood Hogan, of course]. He has managed to get rid of Vader and Johnny B. Badd with a pen, and he’ll continue to keep whoever he wants out or in [looking at you, Eddie Guerrero] he chooses. Notice how Steve Austin wasn’t mentioned. Hogan wants to beat somebody up real bad tonight. He calls DDP a “puke” and says he doesn’t have the power or the stroke around here to bring Warrior to Wargames. As for WOYAH, the people might as well forget about him because the last time he and Hogan met, Warrior ran away from him for eight years. He announces Bischoff is the man with the stroke around here and Warrior won’t be at Wargames. Hogan is losing his voice at this point. Hulk can’t wait to get his hands on the nWo Wolfpac at Fall Brawl. Now that DDP will be in Wargames all alone, Hogan will rip him limb from limb, win Wargames, and go on to make Goldberg drop to his knees to beg Hogan to stop beating him up and declare that Hogan is in fact the man. As God as Hogan’s witness, he will make Goldberg beg for forgiveness. 4-LIFE, BROTHER. Now worship the ground Hogan walks on, ladies and gentlemen. Cut it short, Hogan’s throat is GONE.

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

WWE: The Best of WWE – The Best of Yokozuna

WWE Network
THE BEST OF WWE: The Best of Yokozuna
Runtime: 3 Hours

  • Yokozuna (w/Mr. Fuji) vs. Koko B. Ware – (WWF Monday Night Raw, 1/11/93)

From the first episode of RAW. Koko is part of the High Energy tag team with Owen Hart at the time, while Yokozuna was squashing everybody in his path. Literally. WHOA! Rob Bartlett is the first to drop an “A” bomb on Raw. Koko tries his hardest just to knock Yoko off his feet, but it just isn’t going to happen. Yoko avoids a charge and sends Koko throat-first to the top-rope. Like a one-handed hotshot. Yoko follows up with the Leg Drop, the Avalanche, and the BANZAI DROP to pick up the win. (3:45) B. Ware of Yoko. Seriously, this guy will CRUSH you. ½* Read the rest of this entry

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

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

AT FIRST GLANCE: NOW WE’RE TALKING. We begin disc two post-WrestleMania VI and while maybe the first half of this disc doesn’t really grab me, the Ric Flair era of the WWF is really fun for me. Flair’s matches with Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan should be interesting, but what I’m super interested in are the Bret Hart matches. Undertaker and Bam Bam Bigelow could be a hidden gem as well. Work-wise, this should blow the first disc away.

Your hosts are Charly Caruso and Sean Mooney.
