    RAGE Wrestling 2000

    Big debut for Misawa and Kobashi. They can do all their talking in the ring. These guys just put the tag division in RAGE on notice. Ultimate Survival sounds like it will be a fun wild card kind of thing to watch. I like the consolation prize for the 4 guys that don't win the belt, that is a nice addition! Any time Buff Bagwell is on the losing end of things is fine in my book. Big show coming next week, and the main event was great, with Triple H giving a rub to Dean Malenko, who deserves it. But what on Earth is Flair doing here, and why did he show up then?

  4. This ruled. Mikhail looked like a legitimate threat on the ground whereas Tamura on his feet is so quick and dangerous. When Mikhail's able to grab a hold of something (i.e. the head-and-arm choke takedown), it looks brutal but Tamura's beautiful escapes (and failed attempts) keep you on the edge of your seat. Never a dull moment. Tamura just cracks him with kicks and later on, crumples him with some gnarly knee strikes to the dome. But there was a lot to love here. 1) Mikhail grabbing the straight armbar and when Tamura tries to slip out, Mikhail rodeos him down to the ground, forcing the rope break. 2) The German suplex tease and Tamura's lightning-quick counter. 3) Tamura staying in control of the leg as Mikhail scrambles for a way out. World-class athleticism from Tamura and a strong victory. And yeah, Volk Han berating the losing Ilioukhine with water was very good.

    [1998-01-21-RINGS] Volk Han vs Akira Maeda

    At this point, Maeda still can't go as well as 1995 but the fans still love him and Volk Han does such a good job of putting the early pressure on Maeda, who tries to crawl out of each hold only to find himself in a new predicament thanks to Han's impeccable resourcefulness. Maeda knows the weak point on Han is his knee and tries to take It out with kicks to set up his famous kneebar and when he finally grabs it good, Volk yelps and taps in under five minutes. This was very good while it lasted, and maybe Maeda in these short bursts the best Maeda circa '98.
  6. I believe this month (or last) is the 7 year anniversary of the Wyatt character appearing on the main roster. To put it into perspective Wyatt was on tv before the .Authority was officially formed. A stable that somehow lasted all the way to 2016
  7. I had not thought of this and it blows me away. I know there is a lot more TV now, but still

    That was apparently supposed to be Cole's babyface turn, I guess it makes sense considering babyfaces are constantly made to look like geeks in WWE.

    Lenny is awesome. They did a two parter on him on the Crime In Sports podcast, (which I highly recommend. It's hilarious ) And he contacted them and was like, "Yep. I did all that." And he's been a guest on the show since.

    RAGE Wrestling 2000

    8/10 RAGE Monday Night Mayhem @ Dallas, TX - Reunion Arena RAGE opens to the live crowd who is hyped up for a big night of action. We see JR and Dusty at ringside. They put over the carnage last week involving Viscera and Godfather. They put over tonight’s big card including a main event of Triple H taking on Dean Malenko… plus we’ll see Buff Bagwell and Scott Steiner taking on the Godfather and Mark Henry…. Right now though… it is time for the American debut of Mitsuhara Misawa and Kenta Kobashi! Bruce Buffer: Ladies and gentlemen, our opening contest is scheduled for one fall with a 20-minute time limit. Introducing first, from Little Rock, Arkansas and Louisville, Kentucky respectively… ladies and gentlemen, Tom Stone and Mike Lawler! Their opponents… from Yubari, Japan and Fukuchiyama, Japan respectively...ladies and gentlemen… Mitsuhara Misawa and Kenta Kobashi! Misawa & Kobashi vs Tom Stone & Mike Lawler -Lots of respect for Kobashi and Misawa here. They really have a cult following with some of the fans who even try to throw the streamers in the ring. They don’t appear to be messing around tonight though. They beat the living shit out of these guys and needless to say… strong style is alive and well in RAGE! Lawler and Stone don’t have a chance… Kobashi and Misawa lay waste and finish things off when Kobashi hits the BURNING HAMMER for the 3-count. Stacy Kiebler tries to get some sort of an interview with the two men but they don’t speak English… all we can hear them make out is… we are at RAGE… we will fight anyone! COMMERCIAL We’re back on Monday Night Mayhem with Eric Bichoff standing in the entryway with Jim Ross. They are putting over the Sudden Impact PPV live on September the 5th from Houston, Texas. They put over the big main event, with the RAGE Heavyweight Championship on the line between Triple H and The Undertaker. Bichoff announces that the match will be no disqualification - no count out - no time limit - THERE MUST BE A WINNER! He then goes on to say that he has gotten acceptance from four different teams for the tag team invitational. He says there still may be openings but he will announce the further details of that next week here on Mayhem. We then get to Ultimate Survival. Bischoff explains that the North American title will be held in this special match. There will first be 5 matches held…The winners of these matches… Those five men will qualify for ULTIMATE SURVIVAL. This is a five-way match in which the first man to make a pinfall or submission will WIN the North American Championship… then… it gets interesting… because the final four men will take part in an elimination match with the final man left standing becoming the number one contender for the North American Champion and they will get their title shot the following Monday night on Mayhem! JR and Bischoff put it over… Eric says he will reveal the 10 names in a special lottery this week on RAGE.com! COMMERCIAL We’re back with JR and Dusty putting over the Ultimate Survival match. They talk about the big qualifying matches. They also put over the tag team invitational that will be announced next week as well. JR and Dusty discuss last week’s issue with Scott Steiner and Mark Henry… tonight they’re in tag team action - let’s go to the ring! Bruce Buffer: Our next contest is scheduled for one fall with a 20-minute time limit. Introducing first… from the Bay City, Michigan, and Hollywood, California… Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner and Buff Bagwell! Their opponents… hailing from the Red Light District and Silsby, Texas… the Godfather and The World’s Strongest Man… Mark Henry! Buff Bagwell & Scott Steiner vs The Godfather & Mark Henry -Buff and Steiner have got some nice heat here… they are not very well liked. On the other end… Godfather has got two sultry women with him and the World’s Strongest Man looks to be in amazing shape. This one goes about 12-minutes… although the in-ring work isn’t good… there is a story. The highlight is seeing Mark Henry and Steiner go toe-to-toe and throw some serious lumber in the ring. This one does break loose a little bit and we see all four men go outside the ring and brawl before Steiner and Henry go over the guardrail and into the crowd. Back at the ring, Buff Bagwell makes eyes at the women but they only serve distraction for the Godfather who turns him around and hits the HOE-SLAM for the 3-count! Godfather and Henry have won… but Henry and Steiner are nowhere to be found! COMMERCIAL We’re back with a special video highlighting the Sudden Impact Main Event for the RAGE World Heavyweight Championship. We then cut to Stacy Kiebler who is standing by… with the Undertaker! Stacy Kiebler: I am here with the one, the only, the Undertaker! First off, it is great to see you here in RAGE and what a way to kick things off… you’ve got the chance of a lifetime to go up against Triple H for the RAGE World Title! How do you prepare for a match like this? Taker: First off… it isn’t going to be a match… it’s going to be a fight. Bischoff just announced no dq, no count out, no time limit… well there will be a winner and you’re looking at him. Stacy Kiebler: How is this different from your previous encounters with Triple H? Taker: Well we all know about those matches before but they’ve never been held here in RAGE and they’ve never had so much on the line. Triple H… I want you to know that you're looking at the Deadman and brother, I've got some serious piss and vinegar in my veins. I am looking to reap some souls here boy… and you’re at the top of the list. I want everyone to know that my backs up against the wall and I am coming out swinging. Stacy Kiebler: Fan there you have it… wait just a moment… Viscera... Viscera: Listen there Deadman… a little bit of me is because of you and well… I want my payback! Deadman: I’ll make ya famous boy… don’t even think I will back down… Viscera: Then I guess I will see you next week… hahahaha! The Undertaker and Stacy Kiebler watch as Viscera walk out of the scene… looks like we’ve got a big match next week! COMMERCIAL We’re back with Monday Night Mayhem. JR and Dusty are putting over the big announcement that The Undertaker and Viscera will do battle next week. We’ll also see our first Ultimate Survival qualifying match. Plus the Dudley Boyz will be in action. We will also have the special sit down interview with Jim Ross and Stone Cold Steve Austin! Fans next week’s Mayhem will be can’t miss! Right now we’ve got a huge main event… it is Triple H and Dean Malenko… let’s go to the ring! Bruce Buffer: It is now time for our main event of the evening. It is a one fall contest with a 30-minute time limit. Introducing first… from Tampa, Florida, he is the man of 1,000 holds… ladies and gentlemen… Dean Malenko! His opponent hails from Greenwich, Connecticut, he is the Game… Triple H! Triple H vs Dean Malenko -A fun little match here… Triple H makes Malenko look pretty small… but Dean fights like a 300 pounder and brings everything to the game. They put on a fun 16-minute main event. We see both men get in offense and Triple H gets some big time heat. Malenko makes a big comeback and gets some momentum but when Malenko goes for a northern lights suplex, Triple H seems to get his knee up and knock him loose before hitting a high knee of his own to set up the PEDIGREE for the 3-count! The crowd gives them some love but then erupts… wait a minute… look who is in the entryway… that can’t be… OH MY! Sorry it is a day late - no power or internet for the last 24 hours...

    Greatest year ever by a wrestler

    Jerry Lawler in 1974. Lawler had been a tag team guy until 74. Lawler won the Southern title and began chasing NWA Champion Jack Brisco . Lawler went thur the likes of The Sheik , Dick the Bruiser , Bobo Brazil , Mr.Wrestling II and Jerry Brisco in his quest to dethrone big Jack. Lawler also turn on Jackie Fargo and had a series of classic brawls. The bottom line is there was 11, 200 at the MSC every week. Great year for the King.

    WWE TV 08/03 - 08/09 Giannis is a future back to back MVP

    I don't watch NXT at all but I am baffled if Cole is a face now? That said, I will absolutely watch anything with McAfee vs HHH on it. I did think the best use of Cole that I've seen was when he had a few main roster matches last year with HHH managing him. They very much had a father/son manager dynamic. Sort of similar to the recent Orton/Flair pairing that I wish they stuck with.

    What I've seen of her work has been pretty good, she just seems to be snakebit in terms of getting injured at the worst possible time.

    This sounds like a fun show to watch, with our first interpromotional event. Money International really intrigues me as a tag team. Aguayo and Jannetty would be a fun combination to watch, and once they developed some chemistry, might just be the dark horse team in Can-Am to carry the division. Speaking of tag teams, 37 minutes of Hardyz vs. Triple Threat sounds kind of epic. Quick RIP shout-out to Kamala! And it seems like Tommy Dreamer is really being positioned as a top guy in Can-Am, winning the main event at this show against worthy competition.

    Interesting opening bout. I was surprised when they all came out together and appeared to be on the same side. Tojo quickly reminded me we they were bit reluctant at the opening. Some really great bouts for TV that would keep me coming back week after week. Was just wondering were Sam Houston has been. Wondering if I missed part of an angle?

    Agreed I hope Savoy can break away from this and be herself. "Big Swole" being Aerial Monroe's actual wrestling name is bad enough, we don't need Nicole being saddled with being a lesser version of that when she is a much better overall wrestler. Haven't seen a ton of Rachael Ellering, but her Mae Young Classic match with Hiroyo Matsumoto was really great.

    R.I.P. Kamala (James Harris)

    I guarantee you someone in wrestling will make a "Kamala Harris as Kamala the wrestler" joke then immediately take offense at how negatively it's received.
  24. I thought this was actually pretty darn good - not "must see" and definitely flawed - but there's enough going on to make it fun. I didn't find it slow and, as was mentioned in the Savio Vega/Steve Austin thread from this same PPV, I like JR and Perfect's commentary as they do a great job selling how impressive Goldust is. And he is impressive here. It really does seem fresh to see this version of the Undertaker (the unbeatable Deadman) taking so much punishment from Goldust, a relative newcomer and not really a "made" WWE guy.. At one point, Goldust even gets a visual pin on the guy. As the OP mentioned, Goldust hits a Tombstone piledriver (but not a great one) and attempts an Old School too, which is also something I'm not sure we'd seen many guys attempt. There's a great spot where Taker tries to clobber him with a chair and Goldust kicks him right in the mush. Goldust doesn't bother with any of the homoerotic flourishes (which is kind of a missed opportunity to add another layer to this match), but at least Goldust isn't a scaredy cat heel either - he came into this match to fight and fight he does. The biggest flaw in the match (aside from the botch mentioned above) is the layout. Again, there are some cool moments/ideas sprinkled throughout this match but they happen at weird times. For example, Goldust hitting the Tombstone should've been a big deal but its tossed away in the first third of the contest. The visual pin also makes little sense where it happens (and probably shouldn't have been done at all). Overall, though, I enjoyed it. Goldust looks like a legit tough guy going toe-to-toe with one of the WWE's most established main eventers and the Undertaker gets to portray vulnerability and work a match with some actual back-and-forth rather than the awful slogs he'd had in 95' against the rapidly-declining Yoko, Mabel, and Kama. Extra credit for the finish, which I totally forgot about and thought was executed quite well.

    Greatest year ever by a wrestler

    My personal favourite year for any given wrestler is probably Atsushi Onita in 1990 as he skyrockets into nationwide cult superstar status. He introduces all sorts of new ideas throughout the year while also putting on some excellent matches (with Goto vs Dragon Master & Kurisu, vs Goto) Other picks would be Kaoru Ito in 2001, Rusher Kimura in 1979. Both were consistently having some of the best matches of their career in those years.
  27. Using Ric Flair right now is definitely ill advised and scary, but man, if that was his last angle, he went out showing us all why he's the greatest of all time.
