WWF Sunday Night Heat (August 9, 1998)

Might as well watch another episode of “Are Kane and the Undertaker in Cahoots” Era Sunday Night Heat. The show begins with Shane McMahon screaming comic book sound effects while pyro goes off and I’m already regretting this decision.

WWF King of the Ring 2000 (June 25, 2000)

Having been working through the awfulness that is WCW 2000, I decided to go and see how the other half was living and check out a WWF PPV from the same time. So why King of the Ring 2000? Because I’m also randomly watching all the Wrestling Observer’s worst matches of the year and this PPV contains the apparent worst match of 2000 which, given the shit I’ve seen on Nitros from that year, is truly an incredible feat. So let’s get on with the show!

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (January 5, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an episode of Saturday Morning Slam and I had 30 minutes to kill so I figured to rectify that and check out the first episode from 2013. Our pal Voice Over Guy informs us that the Tag Team Champions, Kane and Daniel Bryan, will be in action today…in singles matches against members of 3MB.

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (December 29, 2012)

Saturday Morning Slam

This was another year-end “Best Of” episode of the Slam, but I watched it for the sake of completion, so here are some brief notes and such about what went down. The show begins with your friend and mine, Voice Over Guy, telling us that that this is another “Best Of” episode and explaining that in today’s main event we’ll see John Cena take on Heath Slater, but first one half of the tag team champions, Daniel Bryan, will be in action against Tyson Kidd.

WWF Unforgiven 1999 (September 26, 1999)

WWF Unforgiven 1999

Why am I watching Unforgiven 1999? Because I’m a glutton for punishment and want to watch all the matches that won the Wrestling Observer’s Worst Match of the Year Award and this one has the infamous Kennel From Hell match, which apparently was the worst professional wrestling match of 1999, that’s why! So let’s get our attitudes on and check it out!

WWF Badd Blood: In Your House (October 5, 1997)

WWF Badd Blood 1997.jpg

I’ve decided to take a look back at Badd Blood: In Your House. This is the PPV that gave us the first ever Hell in a Cell match as well as the debut of Kane. It was also, unfortunately, overshadowed by the unexpected death of Brian Pillman, which was discovered several hours before the show took place.

I watched this live on PPV back in the day, but outside of the three things I’ve mentioned I have no memory of anything that took place on this show. So let’s check it out and see what sort of hidden classics I’ve forgotten about since 1997.

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (March 9, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

“Chaos has run amok. The WWE roster is in disarray. Alliances forged. Allegiances questioned. Who can you trust? These are dark and turbulent times. Will a leader rise? The very fate of Saturday Morning Slam hangs in the balance!”

Christ alive is this pre-opening shitrock theme voiceover over the top or what? The fate of Saturday Morning Slam? It’s a goofy wrestling show for 8 year old boys and they decided to start it off with Movie Preview Guy growling about chaos?
