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.

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

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

I haven’t completed a DVD recap in a while and this one looked pretty interesting, so I thought I would give it a shot. Heck, I haven’t purchased a WWE DVD in forever, so you know this had to have peaked my interest on some level.

AT FIRST GLANCE: Disc one covers the 1980s portion of the set and creeps into 1990 a little bit. Some of the tag matches could be interesting. On disc one, I’m most interested in the handicap match between Hogan and Savage against the Hart Foundation and the Honky Tonk Man. I think that could possibly be a hidden gem. The Powers of Pain against the Rockers could be promising as well. While this doesn’t surprise me that it’s part of the set because it’s WWE, I’m scratching my head over why they would think we would want to sit through Andre the Giant and Big John Studd — in 1989. Nevertheless, let’s get at it.

TEN YEARS AFTER: WrestleMania 22

WWE: WrestleMania 22
April 2, 2006
Rosemont, IL
Allstate Arena

The current WWE champions are as follows:
WWE Champion: John Cena (1/29/2006)

WWE Women’s Champion: Trish Stratus (1/9/2005)

WWE Tag Team Champions: MNM (12/30/2005)
WWE Cruiserweight Champion: Gregory Helms (1/29/2006)

TEN YEARS AFTER: With WrestleMania 32 coming up tomorrow, I thought it might be cool to look at how WWE has changed with ten years of perspective and see if there are any similarities between then and now. Injuries and careers ending changed the game. In 2006, it’s Batista missing WrestleMania and Eddie Guerrero passing away in October. In 2016, it’s Seth Rollins injured and Daniel Bryan whose career was cut short. John Cena is in his first year of being *the man* in WWE and he’s REALLY getting booed by WWE fans right about now. In 2016, Roman Reigns is getting treated even worse by WWE fans than John Cena. Either way, both received big pushes and neither one of them were embraced by the audience. Triple H headlines his fourth WrestleMania here and he’s still being used to help boost the main event players to this day. A McMahon is mixed up in a match that he should have no chance (in hell) of winning. Shane McMahon is here. The Undertaker is still around. In 2006, we’re witnessing the blowoff to the best Divas feud in WWE history. The Divas title match going down this year is comparable to this level of greatness IMO. Just so many comparisons, it almost seems intentional. Read the rest of this entry

WWF: Monday Night Raw (04.19.93)

Monday Night Raw
April 19, 1993
Poughkeepsie, NY
Mid-Hudson Civic Center

The current WWF champs were as follows:
World Champion: Hulk Hogan (4/4/1993)
Intercontinental Champion: Shawn Michaels (10/27/1992)
World Tag Team Champions: Money Inc. (10/13/1992)

Tonight’s main event: Money Inc. takes on the Beverly Brothers! Very strange promo to advertise as both teams take turns standing around in darkness staring off into the nothingness of space as they each announce to the world that they are fairly confident that they will win. Feels like the inspiration came from some weak 1980s music video.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon, Randy Savage, and Rob Bartlett. Read the rest of this entry
