In Topic: WWE's "Unseen Matches" DVD

I just realized they named Quake after the Lil' Abner character. 

Heenan explained why Studd and Andre never matched up well. For Andre to truly be a giant, he needed someone who could really bump and sell for him. Studd physically could not do that and I think the 89 matches were the inverse of that. 

I think they did have a good match at the Spectrum that year and Studd had some very entertaining squashes.

Sort of crazy to watch both Warrior and Owen's debuts and imagine someone thinking, "Yep, THAT guy is the guy we need to carry the company".

 

I was commenting elsewhere that Owen absolutely tore the damn house down with his match.  He hit every signature Owen spot, a beautiful plancha to the floor, all kinds of flippity flop stuff that was ultra cutting edge in 1988 and basically got a standing ovation from the crowd at the end.  Hell of a match.  So what happened?  Vince waits a few months and puts him under a dumb mask and Warrior gets a mega push.

 

I was a eight, The Blue Blazer was one of my favorite wrestlers.  

I watched the Demolition/LOD match since it was advertised as Ax and Smash which never happened. But it was Ax and Crush (which is a rare combo) but they were in the mask and only went a few minutes.

A clever and well-done finish in a vacuum, but the result was so disheartening (at the time) that that aspect is hard to ignore. Not that this was a secret chance to save the company or anything, but putting the titles on Hennig & Windham in 1999 did absolutely no good. Benoit & Malenko *may* have been able to create another point of difference from the WWF and its de-emphasis on tag teams.

The WWF was pushing tag teams in this period.

Anytime Barry Windham wins a belt I am happy.

She never got over Johnny Ace calling her fat and ugly at that try out.
