It would appear that the 7/4 update didn't take place for us here. I'll have to check when I get back on Friday if it was due to the holiday or due to WWE request.

Updated here. Wrestlemania 23 is back, without Chris Benoit/MVP. The Bunkhouse Stampede is surprisingly good.

Ironic that the match that put MVP over the top in a lot of people's eyes is now effectively erased from history. If one day MVP ends up a star and the inevitable career retrospective DVD comes out, WWE will have it that one day he just magically became viewed as a A level player.

Nah, they'll say it was his epic series of cult favorite matches with Kane that put 'im over the top.

WWE in 2007 running the promos where Foley tries to get Dreamer to give up the hardcore style so he can live a long, healthy life is really bizarre.

Ironically Dreamer was right all along. If he had jumped to WCW, he'd be out of the business. Staying with ECW allowed him to eventually land his WWE gig that he currently holds.

Nice little surprise on Primetime this week as the Crush Gals make an appearance.

Survivor Series 93 is just hilarious to watch. Shawn's mullet is out of control and threatens to take over his interview segment. Also it's funny to notice that the 3 guys who are still active wrestlers in 2007 are HBK, Taker, and Mable/Viscera/Big Daddy V.

Holy shit, the 4/21/76 episode of CWF that just came up is the greatest thing ever. Funky 70s theme music, Gordon in a pink 70s jacket, Dusty with a paralyzed face looking and sounding eerily like current Jim Ross, Andre, Frank "Not Brody Yet" Goodish.......just wow............ *edit* If that wasn't enough, Goodish is teaming with KING CURTIS~! (with hair~!)

More WWE editing hilarity: The Freebirds' entrance is clipped completely from GAB 90, they didn't even get the dubbed over generic music treatment. What makes it great is that I have to assume the Birds were using Badstreet USA or some other song made by current member of the WWE inner circle Michael Hayes, and they couldn't even secure the rights to his music either.

Hmm, is Badstreet USA intact in the WM Anthology during Hayes's entrance at WM17?

Maybe they actually used Freebird that night?

Consisidering they were deep in the sequins and makeup phase at this point, I doubt it.

They were definitely using "Badstreet USA" at this point. This was at the height of their fake rock stars gimmick.

Call me crazy, but is that Joyce Farhat in the Uncle Elmer wedding?

Makes me wonder why WWE can't secure the rights to it then, it's not like Hayes is ever going to use it again and the video is a "Shorties" segment if there ever was one.

Then again, WWE doesn't seem to have the rights to half the songs on the albums they made themselves either.

I wonder if maybe even Hayes doesn't even own the rights to that song.

I'm pretty sure he wrote it so he should at least own the publishing rights unless he was really bad at negotiating when the deal was made.

Watching RAW from 1997, I just realized how Sunny completely copied Rick Rude's "fat, out of shape" heat routine. I guess I was distracted by something when I was watching this as an 18 year old........ *edit* TELL ME A LIE VIDEO! GREATEST RAW EVER!
