WWE Saturday Morning Slam (April 27, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

I’ve been putting this one off for awhile as it’s the last episode of Saturday Morning Slam I’ve been able to find online and there was something comforting about know I’ve got 20 minutes of G-Rated wrestling goofiness waiting for me whenever I wanted to watch it. Today I figured is as good a day as any, so without further ado here’s the April 27, 2013 episode of WWE Saturday Morning Slam!

NBW (July 11, 1997)

NBWLOGO

New Breed Wrestling was a wrestling promotion in Upstate New York in the late 90s. The dude that ran the comic book store that I used to buy my comics at wrestled for them and always used to have posters for upcoming shows up in his shop. They’d also have random wrestlers appear in the store for signings and stuff which is how I ended up randomly meeting Superfly Jimmy Snuka in a mall parking lot.

Kevin Sullivan & “Mad Dog” Buzz Sawyer vs. Zan Panzer & Robbie Idol (NWA World Championship Wrestling March 3, 1990)

Sullivan and Sawyer murder the two men unfortunate enough to have to face them in this match for a few minutes. Sometimes in a squash match the job guy will get one or two moves in before being completely destroyed, but that is not what happens here at all. Sawyer and Sullivan take turns manhandling Idol and Panzer who get in no offense to speak of.

The finish of the match sees Panzer get hurled out to the floor while Sawyer goes up top. He nails Idol with a big splash and covers him, but then lets him up. Sawyer goes back up top and nails Idol with another big splash. He makes another pin attempt but again lets him up. The ref thinks this is bullshit and disqualifies Sawyer for kicking too much ass awarding the match to Idol & Panzer.

Sawyer doesn’t seem to care and proceeds to choke out Idol before biting his ear. Sullivan storms off (in disgust according to the announcers) while Sawyer mauls Idol. A crew of wrestlers run out from the locker room to attempt to pull Sawyer off Idol but they are unable to do so.

Eventually Kevin Sullivan reemerges with a chain and all the guys from the locker room scatter. Sullivan chokes Sawyer with the chain and with the chain wrapped around Sawyer’s neck pulls him off Idol to bring an end to the carnage. Jim Ross, on commentary, says that he has no desire to interview Sullivan and Sawyer after the break.

Winners: Zan Panzer & Robbie Idol

This is the sort of shit I kind of miss in wrestling today. Sure guys who can do flips and shit are cool and a good addition to what wrestling can be but I miss scary motherfuckers completely and utterly wrecking house on hapless losers, which is exactly what happens here. [**½]

Meanwhile Backstage…

Back from break we get an interview with Sullivan and Sawyer. They are joined by the third man in their triad, Cactus Jack who more or less just lurks in the background while Sullivan rants about Buzz Sawyer’s mother being a nomad who wandered the deserts. Half of what Sullivan says gets bleeped out which makes it hard to follow what he’s talking about but I think that the story is that Sawyer was born in a wasteland and abandoned and then raised by wolves and thus is not responsible for the way he acts. It’s one of those promos that made the people involved in the promo seem like the most dangerous fuckers in the world and that rules.

Wrestling Society X Episode 8 (March 14, 2007)

It’s a weekday and I’ve got a lunch break to kill so why not look at another random-ass episode of Wrestling Society X. Today we’re checking out the 8th episode of the show which, unless there’s more bait and switch, is going to be headlined by a big WSX Championship match between Ricky Banderas and the champ, Vampiro.

Wrestling Society X Episode 5 (March 13, 2007)

wrestling_society_x_logo

When last we checked in with Wrestling Society X they were in hot water with MTV for featuring a spot in which Ricky Banderas hurled a fireball in Vampiro’s face. This would lead to MTV canceling the show and burning through the remaining episodes during a late night marathon. The episode we’re checking out today was the first episode to air during the post-cancellation marathon.
