The Wrestling Backfire: The Major Problems With Summerslam (John Cena, CM Punk, Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan)

On March 31st, 1985, the WWF took their biggest gamble ever: Wrestlemania 1. If it failed, chances are the company would have gone out of business. Despite what WWE wants their fans to presume, there was a “Grand Daddy Of Them All” before Wrestlemania called Starrcade. It was a Jim Crockett Promotions’ pay-per-view to blow off the biggest feuds in the company. In contrast to Starrcade, the WWF didn’t want their show to be simply about wrestling.  They wanted it to be this mixture of celebrity appearances, entertainment,  and wrestling, or what McMahon would refer to it as “Sports Entertainment”.

The Finlay Youtube/DailyMotion MixTape


Today, I salute you Mr. Finlay, for being the only guy with a first name that starts with the letter F that’s worth a crap. You’ve made a reputation of being one of the most consummate greats in the biz and you only get better with age. Thank you Dave Finlay, for all the wonderful matches and brawls you have given us over the years.

Sorry, that was starting to sound like a borderline love note. Read the rest of this entry

The Eddie Guerrero YouTube/DailyMotion Mixtape

This is my favorite mixtape to date. Eddie Guerrero is one of my faves as he is most everybody who had followed his career, I believe. I’m pouring my creative heart and soul into this one (not that I BS’ed the other three, but I really thought about this match list), so I hope you enjoy it!

There is a Terry Funk squash on Youtube with a 21-year old Eddie Guerrero from May of 1989 on an episode of World Championship Wrestling that is quite awesome and I definitely recommend you check it out if you haven’t already. Eddie takes a couple hard bumps in it especially for the time period. A Running Piledriver on the floor gives Funk the win. I’d say it was easily **½ to ***
