WWWF From Madison Square Garden – August 7, 1976

Finally back to Old School WWF programming. The Network has since updated and finding the Hidden Gems, in the ring order, is almost impossible so I think those are going on the back burner. However for now, we’re going back to 1976 for the next house show, from as always, Madison Square Gardens. Since the last house show the Tag Championships have changed hands, Louis Cerdan and Tony Parisi dropped the gold on May 11th to the Executioners, Killer Kowalski and Big John Studd. Bruno Sammartino is still the reigning World Champion, midway through his second year of a three and a half year reign. With that let’s see what is happening in the Gardens, let’s go to the ring.

WWWF All Star Wrestling – March 20, 1976

This would be the final show posted for 1976, as far as All Star goes. We have two house shows from 76 after this, then we enter 1977. It’s been quite entertaining to see how different it was forty years ago, very slow paced, but still enjoyable. Let’s go to the ring.Read More »

WWWF All Star Wrestling – March 6, 1976

We pick up right where we left off, with the next episode in the series, which is nice to see. It’s such a different style watching these shows from four decades ago, everything seems to have a purpose, matches have flow and order. None of this having to get all your spots in, goofy pointless segments, horrible commentary, just fun shows. Wish it was still like this, hopefully AEW will be more fun then the current WWE. Set the wayback machine for 1976 and let’s go to the ring.Read More »

WWWF All Star Wrestling – February 28, 1976

We head back to All Star Wrestling for more 1976 television goodness. On today’s episode we have an appearance from Stan Hansen, plus a Bobo Brazil match among other things. Let’s go to the ring.

After we’re welcome to the show by Vince McMahon and Antonino Rocca, they go over the action on today’s show. Freddie Blassie will be bringing his newest charge, Stan Hansen to action. Also scheduled is Domenic Denucci facing Louis Cyr, and the tag champions will join us.Read More »

WWWF All Star Wrestling – January 10, 1976

Moving from the Hidden Gems section back to the weekly TV shows, we return to All Star Wrestling. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be all the episodes, I assume they are lost in time, as we only have five episodes for this year and two for the following year. The first episode takes us back to January of 1976. The reigning World Champion is Bruno Sammartino, who is currently in his third year of his second title reign. Meanwhile the Tag Team scene is dominated by the team of Louis Cerdan and Tony Parisi who have held the gold for about two months now and the Intercontinental Championship was still three years away. With this being a TV show most matches will be squash matches, talent versus no name guys, so they won’t be rated. With that, let’s go to the ring.Read More »

WWE Hidden Gems – 1974

As we near the middle of the seventies we enter 1974, which brings us another pair of interesting matches. First is a tag team contest starring Bobby Heenan and the Sheik as they face Dick The Bruiser and Bobo Brazil. That is followed by another tag contest as Danny Hodge and Jos Leduc team up against Pak Song and Toru Tanaka. Old school Bobby Heenan should be fun, and I don’t think there is much Sheik footage on here. Same with Hodge, so both matches are very curious sounding so let’s go to the ring.Read More »
