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.

In honor of the man who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame tonight, my buddy Slackamania and I will be recapping the latest DVD set. Now the first set WWE released in 2005 clearly set out to make him look like a monstrous buffoon determined to unleash “Destrucity” through his poor wrestling skills and insane promos, but oh how time has healed all wounds. Especially when there’s an opportunity for the WWE to make some money here. Enough of the introduction, let’s get to the man of the hour: the WOYAH, if you will.

WWE: Monday Night Raw (07.08.96)

Monday Night Raw
July 8, 1996
Green Bay, WI
Brown County Expo

The current WWF Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Shawn Michaels (3/31/96)
Intercontinental Champion: Ahmed Johnson (6/23/96)
World Tag Team Champions: The Smoking Gunns (5/26/96)

Before we even get Raw, WWF President Gorilla Monsoon comes to us from his WWF office to announce the suspension of the Ultimate Warrior for failing to appear at three different house shows. The suspension will be lifted once Warrior pays an appearance bond to ensure the fans that he will appear where advertised. Nevertheless, he’s here to wrestle tonight. They don’t want you to know it’s not live like those other guys! Gorilla hopes he posts the appearance bond and returns to action. He finishes by saying no matter how popular you are, you’re not above answering to the loyal WWF fans. According to the dirt sheets, Warrior no-showed these events in order to attend his father’s funeral. But with all the Warrior University and comic book deals, there could be more to the story than they are letting onto us. Just channeling my inner Gene Okerlund there.

Your hosts are Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler. Read the rest of this entry
