Favorite build-up promo video to a big match

20 February 2018 - 12:22 AM

 

The one actually at WrestleMania was better, but I liked the tone of these videos building up to the Iron Man match. 

 

The one before Hogan/McMahon at WM 19 was pretty amazing too, particularly the choice of music.


Andre The Giant HBO doc

28 January 2018 - 10:27 PM

 

So this has been talked about for awhile, at first with ESPN as part of their 30 For 30 series, but switched over to HBO when Bill Simmons left. HBO Sports have made some amazing documentaries over the years, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how they do this, their first full-length doc on professional wrestling. Andre was given the A&E Biography treatment in the late 90's, and while it gave some glimpse into the man inside, I expect (especially given the crazy amount of access given to Simmons and the director by WWE and research gone into it) this to go much deeper.

 

Deeper perhaps on a personal level, but I also expect this to do what the Flair doc did to a degree which was make something for the HBO audience as much as the WWE (or long-time wrestling) fans. 


Hall of Fame 2018

15 January 2018 - 07:48 PM

ESPN confirmed today that Bill Goldberg will be inducted this year. No doubt he will be the main attraction for this, especially given his recent run in the company.

 

I'm hoping for Vader, Haku and The Midnight Express.


Down & Dirty w/Dutch Mantell

He's been talking it up on Twitter and sounds like it might launch very soon.


Bobby Heenan RIP

According to Jim Ross' Twitter, he passed away today. I'd have no reason to believe Ross would report something like this erroneously.
