WWF Sunday Night Heat (August 2, 1998)

WWF Heat 1998 Logo

So apparently the first year’s worth of episodes of Heat are up on the WWE Network now and since it’s nearly the 20th anniversary since the debut episode (and since I pretty much only want to watch hour long wrestling C-shows these days) I decided to check this one out.

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!

ECW Hardcore Heaven ’95 (July 1, 1995)

ECW Hardcore Heaven '95

This is a show I’d heard a lot about back in the day when I was into real sleazy garbage wrestling and shit like that because of the Taipei Deathmatch but I’d never actually seen it until I got the WWE Network and watched it, which automatically makes it 90% less sleazy than it would have been if I’d traded a 3rd generation tape of the Big Japan Supermarket Deathmatch for a dubbed copy of this, but whatever. Let’s get extreme!

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (March 16, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

For the second week in a row Saturday Morning Slam begins with a voice over guy who sounds more like the Movie Trailer Guy than the Voice Over Guy from Saturday Morning Slam we all know and love. He delivers another doom and gloom bit of oration stating, “Last week on the Slam, chaos and disorder continued to run rampant throughout the WWE. And today an announcement will be made. Will it end the pandemonium, or will mayhem be unleashed?”

WCW Clash of the Champions XVI: Fall Brawl (September 5, 1991)

WCW 19910905 - Clash of Champions Logo.gif

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.

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (May 11, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

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.

WWE Saturday Morning Slam (May 4, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

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.

WCW Main Event (December 29, 1991)

WCW_Main_Event_logo

We’re joined by Tony “The Greatest Night In The History of Our Sport” Schiavone and Missy “I Don’t Blow Jobbers” Hyatt in the WCW Command Center for an action packed episode of WCW Main Event.

They make some small talk about Christmas and Missy says that the only thing that was wrong was people had a hard time getting the entire Neiman Marcus store into her house as gifts. Schiavone no sells it and starts talking about the upcoming Battlebowl match at Starrcade, which will begin in an hour’s time. Schiavone wants Missy’s pick for the man who’s going to win it all. She hems and haws a bit so Tony says he’ll get her pick later and throws it down to the ring for action!
