Royal Rumble 1991 – A classic event that kind of blew.

Royal_Rumble_1991

Royal Rumble 1991 is one of my all time favorites. That doesn’t mean I can’t find a lot wrong with it though, stupid.

We are live from the Miami Arena in Miami, Florida. First, we sing America the beautiful. This helps set the patriotism theme for our USA vs Iraq main event. We see a kid with a wart on his finger. Gross. I wouldn’t hang out with kids with warts. You need to have standards.

Royal Rumble 1989 wasn’t good.

Royal_Rumble_1989

Royal Rumble 1989! Time to watch and enjoy, hopefully. Out of the gate, we get a Vincegasm with “HAAAALK HOOOOGAM.”

The Summit in Houston is our location, with Gorilla and Ventura on commentary.

The Fabulous Rougeaus and Dino Bravo will open the show against a popular Hart Foundation and Hacksaw Jim Duggan! Gorilla notes “that piece of garbage, Frenchie” is at ringside. Jimmy Hart is too. Now, the play by play isn’t much of my style but I’ll tell you that I think this is a great six-man tag match. The Rougeaus win the first fall over Bret Hart. Gorilla informs us that people are “literally hanging from the rafters.” Id like to edit a porno with him doing commentary sometime. Hacksaw and the Harts get the last two falls thanks to the 2X4. What if an amateur wrestler came to the ring with a wooden board?

WCW Uncensored 1997 was junk.

WCW Uncensored PPVs have a history of sucking. How will this one stack up? The third annual event from Charleston, SC couldn’t be worse than the others or the first two shows of the year…right?

WCW SuperBRAWL VII (1997) was garbage.

Superbrawl1997logo

We open with Piper escaping from a jail cell – with a spotlight actually on him in the jail. He takes off running like you might expect someone who had hip surgery to run. He’s in his kilt. This is how we open the show just after Souled Out, maybe the worst WCW show up until then. Oh boy.

nWo Souled Out 1997 was shit.

NwoSouledOut1997poster

I can remember the hype behind the first nWo PPV back during 1997. It was when WCW was on top of the Monday Night Wars, an over-used phrase by WWE to market shit. But the nWo was huge – big enough to have it’s own pay-per view. How did that go over? Like a turd in the punch bowl.

Halloween Havoc 1999 is the most disappointing PPV I’ve seen to date.

Halloween_Havoc_1999

The crowd was actually going wild! The big inflatable monster thing was out and Halloween Havoc 1999 kicked off with a great deal of promise. What a card! Hulk Hogan vs. Sting. DDP vs. Flair. Goldberg vs. Sid. Goldberg vs. Sting. What? Yeah, get ready, because this was a Vince Russo special and before we’re through, you’ll easily see why this was the shittiest possible show WCW could have put on and why it is impossible to be a fan of WCW when you watch it.

I’m mad that Hulk Hogan is inducting Macho Man Randy Savage into the Hall of Fame

The news was the best from WWE in a while – finally, Randy “Macho Man” Savage would be going into the WWE Hall of Fame. Then, we immediately learned who would induct him – glory hog, Hulk Hogan. Total BS.

Review: Wrestlemania 6 (The Vudu Version)

wrestlemania 6

Wrestlemania 6 was one of my all-time favorite Wrestlemanias. It had a magnificent main event that was built up and hyped to perfection. It’s the wrestling fans equivalent of a perfect T-bone steak. I’m a vegetarian – but I’ll not be for a good T-bone!

So anyway, why would I want to review this event (the Vudu version)? It sucked ass.
