Time for more early 90s WCW! Time for Main Event! Our hosts for the evening are the tandem of Jim Ross and Missy Hyatt. JR explains that things are really heating up between “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and the biggest man in sports today, El Gigante. Oh fuck…

We begin things with a brief video that gives us a rundown of the main matches on the card before heading to the Civic Center in Augusta, GA where we are joined by our hosts for the evening Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone. They talk about what’s going on tonight and then throw it to their broadcast colleagues who are standing about ten feet away from them.
Eric Bischoff, Missy Hyatt and Paul E. Dangerously talk about what they will be doing during the Clash. Missy Hyatt is apparently still on her quest to interview a dude in the locker room and promises an interview with the World Heavyweight Champion, Lex Luger. Paul E. is going to interview the man who will challenge Luger for the title at Halloween Havoc, “The All-American” Ron Simmons. Bischoff then throws it over to the ring announcer to get the Clash underway with the first match of the evening.

This is from the first episode of ECW. There’d apparently been a couple pilot episodes before this but this is their first shot at the big time and they kick things off with a tournament for the newly created Television Championship that two guys had already held prior to this show taking place.

We start things off with the Public Enemy making their way out to the ring for their Tag Team Title match against the challengers of Sabu and The Tazmaniac. This footage is from Double Tables, but because I’m watching it on the WWE Network instead of a VHS cassette, “Here Comes the Hotstepper,” has been replaced by some generic hip-hop beat. The crowd doesn’t seem to mind though and dutifully puts their hands in the air and waves them as if they just don’t care all the same.

Time for some WarGames aftermath! NXT begins this week with a video package summarizing what went down at WarGames before we head to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas for tonight’s episode of NXT.
Later in the night Mauro claims that there are two rings set up not because these matches were recorded prior to the WarGames PPV but rather because the Toyota Center is the home of WarGames and thus always has a two ring setup going on. I laughed. Continue reading “NXT (November 22, 2017)”
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. That includes Saturday Morning Slam, of which this is sadly the final installment (to date at least), coming to us previously recorded from the UK. But Voiceover Guy claims that Saturday Morning Slam GM, Mick Foley, is going to make history today. So I guess we’re going out with a bang!
They then announce that Foley’s sign a huge tag team match for the main event that will pit the team of Randy Orton and Sheamus against the stars of Saturday Morning Slam, the Prime Time Players. That’s not all though, earlier today something transpired backstage that led to Foley signing another huge match.

We get the old Saturday Night Live Band style Raw opening with wild saxophones and shit. The title card is emblazoned with “Happy Anniversary.” We head in to the arena where Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon are standing by to introduce us to the second anniversary of WWF Monday Night Raw.

Voiceover Guy introduces us to another exciting episode of Saturday Morning Slam and informs us that our opening bout will see Jey Uso take on Darren Young. Maybe “exciting” is a little bit too strong…
We get a little video package about Jey Uso and Darren Young which is pretty decent for people who are new to WWE circa 2013 and have no idea who these cats are.

Let’s take a trip to the ECW Arena circa 1995 and look at one of the Supercards that as of November 2017, isn’t available on the WWE Network. The Supercard in question is Double Tables.
