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.

We start things off with Johnny Saint standing in an NXT ring in Royal Albert Hall. This opening kind of ends up being a spoiler of things to come since the show didn’t air live. Saint does a voice over and talks about the history of grappling in the UK before we get the show open and head to the commentary team for the evening, Mauro Ranallo and Nigel McGuinness.

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.

We start the show off with a cold open of 205 Live’s GM, Drake Maverick, talking how on tonight’s historic episode of 205 Live from London, the stars of 205 Live will be going head to head with the stars of the WWE’s UK brand. He then tells us about the two huge matches he’s booked. First, there is a Fatal Four-Way between TJP, Kalisto, Kenny Williams and Tyler Bate. The main event will be a six man tag team match pitting the team of Cedric Alexander, Mustafa Ali, and Flash Morgan Webster against James Drake, Joseph Connors, and Drew Gulak.

We start things off this week with a cartoon CM Punk trudging through the snow. He comes upon a Christmas tree hooked up to a Big Red Button™ that he proceeds to press though nothing happens when he does.

Voice Over Guy welcomes us once again to Saturday Morning Slam and tells us that he hopes we’re not too full from breakfast because Ryback will be feeding us more in the main event or something, but first let’s head to the arena for our opening contest.

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!

It’s time for another exciting episode of the most electrifying thirty minutes on TV on Saturday mornings circa 2012! Voice Over Guy welcomes us to the show and informs us that this week the leader of the CeNation is going to be in action against Heath Slater of 3MB in the main event, but first we’re getting Titus O’Neil going up against Sheamus in our opening bout.

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.
