In Topic: Favourite pop to a match/buildup

Yesterday, 10:57 AM

There is a lot of pops in history that are huge, but I can't believe anybody thinks any pop is larger than the Hart Foundation and especially Bret Hart at Canadian Stampede.


Hulk Hogan at the Hall of Fame!

Or Hogan that night at Montreal where they had to go to a break because they popped for 5 minutes.


In Topic: Mixed Match Challenge

Yesterday, 04:58 AM

The Goldust/Mandy Rose vs Naomi/Uso match was so much fun. It might have been a little too much comedy for some people, but I thought it was beautiful.

 

I was kinda hoping the mixed tags would have had the match ups not look so predictable so you didnt know who was winning.


In Topic: WWE Network... It's Here

I guess the good thing is that the confusion over Memphis TV ownership has allowed so many new fans to discover its greatness unedited in YouTube and 70s-TV.com.

 
It still be nice for the Network to get it so we can see the WWF/USWA angle in good quality.
 
I don't think the 80s Memphis stuff would be better quality, most of the master tapes are gone, this isn't like Mid-South or Mid-Atlantic. My understanding  is that Lawler claimed ownership of Memphis and has pieced together all the stuff floating around and wants to sell it to WWE for the Network. The big question is whether Cornette's collection would be part of what Lawler has, specifically all the missing stuff from 82-83. If it is, and WWE has that stuff, I'll be picketing outside corporate with a sign every day until they put it up. I'll start social media campaigns. I'll do anything. The world needs to see all the Lance Russell footage available and Cornette is sitting on it.
 
 
Im sure I remember cornette saying in a shoot interview he regrets selling SMW to WWE.
In fairness, he couldn't have expected it to be the only library that they would largely leave on a shelf.

 

 

That's odd, in his 2'nd Youshoot he said he didn't regret selling it as he had lost 6 figures in SMW and WWF was paying him 6 figures for the tape library so he could break even by selling it. He said he didn't consider SMW something historical to the level of a Championship Wrestling from Florida that he couldn't stand to see buried away in WWE's vaults.

 

 

Im not sure which interview it was on but he said he had heard that its out there in the trading community in great quality and told fans to actively seek it out which which I took as his way of Jim approving trading so fans get to see it.


In Topic: Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

Yesterday, 04:52 AM

Back in the UK in the 90s there was a Computer Based Video Game show on each week called Gamesmaster where contestants had to play a certain game to win a Golden Joystick. In the early series they had Hacksaw Jim Duggan & Kendo Nagasaki but in 1994 the legendary Macho Man Randy Savage turned up on the show.

 

 

I don't know if many american's have seen this but wondered what they thought of it.
