Re: Currently Watching?

They uploaded 1986 Crockett Cup. 4 hours of tag team wrestling and 45 minutes into it, there is ZERO commentary. It's really weird to watch it without commentary, but I'm enjoying it immensely.

The camera work has been terrible though.

An episode of Prime Time Wrestling not far off from Wrestlemania III...I don't think there are any two guys in the company's history that had a better back-and-forth than Gorilla and the Brain.

Re: Currently Watching?

Royal Rumble 2001

So much Drew Carey... So much of him plugging his special...

E&C vs Dudleyz: a good tag title match but it's harder to get invested in a standard match between the two teams when you've seen how much more spectacular other matches with them are, such is the problem with the TLC legacy. But a good opener nonetheless.

Jericho vs Benoit: the IC title ladder match is brutal to watch even without knowing the future, less focus on spots and more on violence. I admit I unappreciated it until now, it really is an amazing ladder match.

Chyna vs Ivory: the Women's title match is basically just an angle, I can't see a storyline where someone is written to be legitimately paralyzed going down so well today and even this was just over a year after Droz's accident. Mostly just takes up time when you know the payoff is Chyna burying Ivory (and subsequently the rest of the division.)

Angle vs Triple: pretty good considering it's a heel vs heel WWF title match and we're "methodical Trips" here even though the Steph/Vince/Trish soap opera and Austin run-in takes a lot of attention away from the belt but then it's the Attitude Era so what do you expect. Probably wouldn't make either one's best of list but it's still good imo.

Royal Rumble: Great Rumble, random thoughts:
Kane is without question the star of the match going an hour and lasting til the final two.
When I was a kid I thought the Drew Carey part was hilarious but now it just sucks. He barely sells any emotion out there when he's supposed to be terrified of Kane.
When I was a kid I thought the Honky Tonk Man part was hilarious... and it still is.
I love Raven and Al Snow briefly turning it into a hardcore match it added a lot of variety to the match but Al running out before his time and the revelation that the next entrant was him anyway kind of kills some of his heat.
Tazz lasts like 10 seconds, compare this to his debut at the previous year's Rumble. The original call-up?
So surreal to see a young R-Truth/K-Kwik enter this Rumble and since he his spot was stolen this year that makes Jeff Hardy the only person to enter both Rumbles... I don't think anyone predicted Jeff Hardy of all people having such a long career.
Damn Regal is over as a heel here.
Big Show's return is pretty cool he's out pretty quickly but leaves a hell of an impression, chokeslamming everyone and putting The Rock through a table after being eliminated by him.
It kinda bothers me that when the Brothers of Destruction unite, Scotty 2 Hotty is the one to have to face them both. Wouldn't it be more pleasurable for a heel to get destroyed like that? Like an RTC member or something? Too Cool seem to had gone back to being jobbers after their peak popularity in 2000 but fans still liked them, especially Scotty and there's not really much joy to be had in seeing him get double teamed by two guys both double his size.
"The One" Billy Gunn got surprisingly decent pop and was one of the final 4. Go figure...
From what I recall Rikishi's heel turn and ascent to main eventer status was met with "sorry, no room fatass" from the other top stars (except The Rock who actually tried to help him get over) but Undertaker is surprisingly giving here and this is supposedly him at his unwilling to help anyone 2001 lowpoint. He headbutts Rikishi twice and sells it like his skull is made of concrete (cause Samoans...) before Rikishi eliminates him. Just interesting to see, BSK 4 life?
Austin, Kane and Rock's skirmish at the end is just awesome.

Great event 8/10

Raw #539 from 2003...Interestingly, this is a rare TV-MA episode. Not sure why exactly, but I guess because of the blood bag getting dumped on Shane, even though it's clearly fake and looks like grape jelly lol.

I also forgot how good that women's tag match was with Lita/Trish & Gail/Molly. They put on a clinic with a good amount of ring time.

Bash at the Beach 1995; 24 years ago tonight.

Flair/Savage on the BEACH.

I've always been a mark for outdoor settings in wrestling for some reason.

Re: Currently Watching?

First ever Highlight Reel featuring guest Goldberg.

Kind of surreal... there's no Jeritron 5000, they're openly acknowledging a top babyface got booed, Jericho has this weird Fu Manchu thing going on and they're saying the world "wrestler".
