It’s time for another episode WCCW from 1982. Marc Lowrance is filling in on commentary this week for Gene Goodson. He’s joined by Kevin Von Erich to call the action. They run down the card for the evening. Apparently Kevin Von Erich will be pulling double duty tonight as he will also be facing Wild Bill Irwin in the main event.

It’s been awhile since I’ve checked out any WCCW here so I’ve decided to rectify that and pick up where I left off. This week Gene Goodson is joined on commentary by David Von Erich. They give us a run down of the card and then throw to commercials because they’ve got bills to pay.

The NXT Championship is on the line tonight so we start the show off with a video highlight the events leading up to tonight’s match up. Both men talk about devils and stuff. As is often the case with WWE produced video packages this was really well done and made the match between the two seem like a huge deal.

We start the show off with a cold open of 205 Live’s GM, Drake Maverick, talking how on tonight’s historic episode of 205 Live from London, the stars of 205 Live will be going head to head with the stars of the WWE’s UK brand. He then tells us about the two huge matches he’s booked. First, there is a Fatal Four-Way between TJP, Kalisto, Kenny Williams and Tyler Bate. The main event will be a six man tag team match pitting the team of Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali, and Flash Morgan Webster against James Drake, Joseph Connors, and Drew Gulak.

We open on a sunset-lit gymnasium. Cage, looking jacked as fuck, is doing curls when Dario Cueto opens. Cueto tells him, “I like a man who takes the bull by the horns, but, you my friend, you take the bull by the huevos,” and gives him a championship match against Prince Puma tonight.
Cage tells him that he will win the title tonight because he’s a machine. This week his declaration of being a machine is paired with a hard zoom on his eyes like something out of a 1970s kung fu movie. This owns so hard.
Time from Lucha Underground!

I somehow skipped this episode of Nitro while playing along at home with the Keep it 2000 podcast and since they’ve closed up shop for the foreseeable future I figured I might as well fill in this gap in my own reviews.

We start things off this week with a nervous Jimmy Hart. He’s apparently getting a new co-host and is worried that she might be a ditzy bimbo or a stick in the mud. His co-host turns out to be Leyla Milani. Apparently she was the runner-up in the 2005 WWE Diva Search. Since that was one of the periods during which I wasn’t watching wrestling I’ve never seen her before.

In 2008, a man by the name of Jonathan Vargas won a Powerball lottery jackpot of $35.3 million. He, as so many lottery winners are wont to do, decided to partner with “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart and one of the former producers of GLOW (the 80s campy wrestling version not the critically acclaimed Netflix show) to create a women’s professional wrestling league. Wrestlicious is the result of this partnership.

The episode of Lucha Underground I watched the other day kind of put me on a Lucha Underground kick so here’s another review of an episode from Season 1. Again we kick things off with a brief recap of what’s been going on in the Temple. This time the video package is focused on Big Ryck, Pentagon Jr., Drago and King Cuerno, so I’m guessing those are the dudes that are going to be featured in this episode.

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any Lucha Underground so it’s time to rectify that. We start things off with a prestige drama-esque previously on Lucha Underground recap that shows us stuff that previously happened that will undoubtedly be important in understanding this particular installment. Since it’s been over a month since I last checked out an episode from this season of LU this recap thing is invaluable to me.
