Great show. Sort of a hybrid of WHERE THE BIG BOYS PLAY AND VINTAGE VAULT.

I'm pretty sure JT came to the right conclusion: I distinctly remember most of these early Monday nights and these shows definitely aired head-to-head. For instance, I remember the shock tag title change but I never even knew about the Bluebloods/Eaton fakeout until years later, I think all the way until I watched the '95 Yearbook here, because I happened to be on Raw while that part was going on. 

 

I actually have no memory at all of Thursday Raw replays and don't even remember Meltzer going over them in the WON, so I don't think they lasted long.

While 1995 was a bad year for the WWF both creatively and at the box office, they had enough talent to succeed if booked correctly. Bam Bam was over huge after the LT match and then turned on by the Million Dollar Corporations, but his momentum was stymied. Sid turning on Shawn was a great angle, but his push was also stymied. Bret Hart had incredible matches with Lafitte and Hakushi and Diesel, and Shawn had great matches with everyone, but there seemed to be no rhyme or reason to the booking. Diesel was over when he destroyed Backlund to win the title, but they made him this smiling, nice guy instead of the cool badass he was. They did absolutely nothing with Lex, and Hakushi and Lafitte were not utilized correctly as well. The talent was there. The booking was atrocious. And Shane Douglas was someone they didn’t need to bring in. He was a complete waste.

I'll be honest lads, when I first saw these, my reaction was 'Really? Jesus, again?!!!' but you've put a fresh coat of paint on the topic and it's been interesting so far.

 

Now, how about you two bridge the gap from the last WTBBP and cover WCW PPVs from July 93 to August 95?

That big, stinky, nasty Giant won’t know what hit him.

Thanks Mick, I continue to think stuff involving the attitude era is viewed as old hat but even In the match discussion archive some of the lowest replied stuff is from 95-99 so I do believe there is value in revisiting. Giant in particular is looking better in retrospect so far.

I think there’s tons of value in it. I have only listened to the first two eps so far but I am loving it. It has definitely proven to me that I can pretty much watch any 1 hour wrestling show in the format of ‘90s Nitro/Raw and enjoy it. Shows are just a breeze for me.

I agree... I am enjoying the deep dive and really paying attention to the details of the week to week. Plus I love talking to Chad, so this has been a blast for me.
