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)

WWF King of the Ring 2000.jpg

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 (April 20, 2013)

Saturday Morning Slam

Voice Over Guy welcomes us to a “heart-stopping” installment of Saturday Morning Slam. Somehow a show that promises to stop hearts is okay to show to small children but images of random blows to the head are no go.

Voice Over Guy continues by saying that Saturday Morning Slam GM, Mick Foley, is going to make a major announcement. Camera crews have apparently caught up with the GM, so let’s see what this major announcement is!

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.
