WWE Smackdown – April 10, 2012

We have a special edition of Smackdown this week, since the WWE Wrestlers are headed overseas. There is a number of legends scheduled to make appearances tonight, so that should make for a fun show. Hopefully better then the trainwreck that was Raw this week. So without further ado, let’s head to the arena for a live Smackdown.

We open with the same promo from RAW showing all the legends scheduled to be on the show, best of all is Roddy Piper. Wish they had Michael Hayes on here too, and put Gene on commentary. First thing we get on the live show is a recap of AJ being kicked to the curb by DB, and tonight DB is on the Piper’s Pit, that is awesome! Piper’s Pit should be a permanent thing on Smackdown, as Lillian introduced the great Mene Gene, did he ever have hair??? Continue reading


WWE March Madness 2011 Tournament

Taking a brief hiatus from the Coliseum Home Video collection, we’re going to recap a special WWE program. The WWE March Madness 2012 Tournament that aired on WWE On Demand. This is basically the WWE’s attempt to do the NCAA March Madness tournament. I have no idea of the matches, so it’s all going to be a surprise, but I have a bad feeling the final match will be Undertaker versus Shawn Michaels, I hope I’m wrong. Hopefully we get some good solid matches and no garbage. Let’s get underway.

AWE Night of the Legends – October 15, 2011

Now for something completely different, this was a special PPV that aired last weekend. The ad showed Kevin Nash, the Rock and Roll Express, Terry Funk and others. I love watching nostalgia style PPV as they are usually so much fun. The 605 Reunion PPV was fun to watch, and I’m in the minority but I enjoyed the Heroes of Wrestling PPV. Of course these are all the old school guys I grew up watching. Makes me wonder in twenty five years or so, will we have these kind of shows with Randy Orton, John Cena and Kelly Kelly, doubt it. Anyways, I’ve been looking forward to this show all week, so let’s get down to ringside. Continue reading



Saturday Night’s Main Event #30 – February 8, 1992

Almost to the end of the SNME collection as we have two remaining. Tonight’s episode is three weeks after the Royal Rumble and two months before Wrestlemania. A lot has changed in the WWF since our last SNME back in April 1991. Hulk Hogan was defeated by the Undertaker at the Survivor Series 1991, but due to controversy we had a rematch five days later won by Hulk Hogan. This was not without more controversy and the title was declared vacant. Ric Flair, who debuted in the summer of 1991, won the 1992 Royal Rumble and in the process won the vacant World Title. Randy Savage, who reunited with Elizabeth at Wrestlemania, finally married Elizabeth at Summerslam. At the reception the happy couple was attacked by Jake Roberts and the Undertaker, setting off the Savage and Roberts feud that went through the fall and winter. Bret Hart finally captured his first singles title defeating Mr. Perfect and putting him out of wrestling for years. Bret defended the title proudly against all comers, but finally was beaten for the title by the Mountie. The Mountie would then quickly lose the belt, only two days later, to Roddy Piper, who finally gained a title after eight years with the WWF. The Nasty Boys were able to hold the tag titles up until they ran into the Legion of Doom at Summerslam, making the LOD the first Triple Crown tag team champions. The LOD would lose the tag titles one night before this show to the tag team of Money Inc, Ted DiBiase and IRS (formerly known as Mike Rotundo). Demolition has gone their separate ways as Ax was released, Crush became Hawaiian Crush, and Smash became the Repo Man. Finally Sid Vicious made his long awaited WWF debut in the summer destroying various heels and aligning himself with Hulk Hogan. This friendship was short lived as Sid was eliminated by Hulk at the Rumble and proceeded to eliminate Hulk allowing Ric Flair to win. These two men are forced to team tonight to face Ric Flair and Undertaker. In the Hulk and Sid’s corner, making his big return was Brutus Beefcake, who’s been out for almost two years after a parasailing accident. Let’s get down to ringside for the opening contest.

Saturday Night’s Main Event #29 – April 27, 1991

It’s time for another classic SNME as we have three remaining. Tonight’s episode comes to use one month following Wrestlemania VII. At Wrestlemania we had the crowing of a new World Heavyweight Champion as the Real American Hulk Hogan defended the United States and conquered the Iraqi turncoat Sgt Slaughter to regain the title for the third time. At the time that was unheard of and Hulk was the first three time World Champion. Also that night we witnessed The Hart Foundation losing the Tag Titles for the final time to newcomers the Nasty Boys, who won a battle royal to qualify for the match. The match of the night honors had to go to Ultimate Warrior and Randy Savage who put on one of the best matches in Wrestlemania history, and in the end the Warrior vanquished Savage and ended his career. After the match Queen Sherri attacked Savage and making the save, surprisingly was the return of Elizabeth. The reuniting of Savage and Elizabeth brought a tear to the huge audience and is one of the most remembered moments of that night. Other matches that night included Jake Roberts beating Rick Martel in a blindfold match, which was horrible, Demolition being destroyed and ending the team at the hands of two Japanese wrestler who very few people knew, Virgil breaking away from Ted DiBiase after three years of abuse and beating Ted, and the Wrestlemania debut of the Undertaker who defeated Jimmy Snuka to begin the legendary streak. With all that behind us we begin the march to Summerslam, and tonight Warrior gets his hands on the former champion Sgt Slaughter, we have a battle royal and the Nasty Boys defend the tag titles, all this and more on SNME.

The Main Event V – February 1, 1991

Well, we’re slowly making it to the end of the SNME/Main Event Collection as we officially enter the final year, 1991. Tonight’s show is the in-between Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania VII period. We’re coming to you two weeks after the Royal Rumble where we crowned a shocking new champion. The Ultimate Warrior had run over everyone is his path for the last nine months as champion, but Randy Savage continued to pursue the champ. Warrior wanted nothing to do with the Macho King or the Queen and shut them down repeatedly. Finally at the Rumble while Warrior was defending the title against the turncoat Sgt Slaughter, Savage charged down the aisle and cracked Warrior in the head with the scepter. This allowed Slaughter to score the biggest win of his career and become the WWF champion. Later in the night Savage no showed the Rumble, which was later won by Hulk Hogan. Hulk wasted no time in issuing the challenge to the Iraqi sympathizer and wanted a title match. Tonight on the final Main Event, Hulk Hogan stands in the corner of Jim Duggan as he faces the new World Champion. Before Hulk gets to that point he has to team with Tugboat to face long time foes Dino Bravo and the Earthquake in a tag team match. Let’s head to Macon, Georgia for the final episode of the Main Event.

Saturday Night’s Main Event #25 – January 27, 1990

With tonight’s episode we leave behind the 1980’s and journey into the 1990’s. We’re coming to you just six days after the Royal Rumble. In the Royal Rumble we had the first epic meeting between the past and the present, as Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior squared off. Hulk eliminated the Warrior from the Rumble, supposedly by accident, and now the Warrior’s mad. Tonight these two men must work as a team as they face the man who beat Hulk at the last SNME, the Genius, and Mr. Perfect. Can the two champions unite or will tonight be a perfect victory, all that and more tonight on Saturday Night’s Main Event.
