The following wrestling exhibition requires discretionary viewer participation.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Bruno Sammartino. It appears we are pulling footage from two different episodes, which would explain the longer than usual runtime on the WWE Network. It’s ten minutes longer than we are used to seeing. The first match recapped here is from the January 13 episode and that’s all we will see. I’m assuming since the WWE Network was missing 6-8 weeks of All Star Wrestling that they wanted to provide as much footage as possible and decided to tag on one of the early Steve Travis matches here since he will be a mid-card babyface throughout 1979. THAT’S ONLY MY ASSUMPTION. Read the rest of this entry
