    1985-03-31-WWF-Wrestlemania

    The Tag Team Championship match is my favorite. And I would recommend the main event, more as a historic point then as a match, but it is not a bad match either. The crowd was red-hot for it, and the added attraction of the celebrities complemented it all the more.

    RIP Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart

    I have gotten a lot of enjoyment lately out of watching the WWF tag scene from the time they and the Bulldogs started with the company, really right up until the Road Warriors were brought in. I started as a fan after they split up, but there is little doubt for me that The Hart Foundation might be the greatest tag team Vince ever pushed. For 3 years their best heel tag team, and arguably the best face team for the next 3. Jim had those hyped, non-sensical promos that fit right in with what Hogan and Warrior were spouting off every week. He could also move pretty fast for a guy his size. I love the slingshot move they broke out every once in awhile where Bret would torpedo Jim over the top rope onto someone. And their finish might be the tag team equivalent of Arn Anderson's spinebuster.

    [1990-08-27-WWF-Summerslam] Rick Rude vs Ultimate Warrior (Cage Match)

    I'm getting into The Lapsed Fan podcast. First episode I'm into covers this show and right away they talk about how the heat for this match is pretty much evaporated because of the "Hogan Must Pose" finish of the previous match. I hadn't really thought of that before but it's true. Add that on to the fact the WWF audience has already seen Warrior beat Rude several times before (they try and add suspense by saying this is Warrior's first cage match, suggesting somehow that he could be too stupid to understand the rules of one or maybe that's just me) already, it's a lackluster finish to the show.

    The 10,000 person crowd

    I am in utter agreement with your 1st statement. And I hope you're right about the 2nd one.

    The 10,000 person crowd

    Tribune is withdrawing from the Sinclair merger, choosing instead to sue them for breach of contract to the tune of $1 billion. My immediate reaction as far as ROH is concerned, is that this might not be good for them in terms of their television deal. If Tribune takes them down on this, they could be the first victim of whatever house-cleaning Sinclair deems necessary.

    Something To Love (Bruce Prichard's podcast)

    Him and Conrad have genuine chemistry as podcasters which elevate it to not just being a great wrestling show but a great podcast period. The routines and other stuff people might find annoying is probably less in volume compared to WHW which I'm guessing has gotten a bit too "Bob & Tom" for my tastes.

    Something To Love (Bruce Prichard's podcast)

    At least when it comes to DDP, the company have come around and recognized him through the Yoga program and have brought him in from time to time to their training facilities, etc. And certainly centering his Hall of Fame induction around his WCW career where he was most over, and not trying to justify themselves as to how abysmally they used him in 2001.

    Something To Love (Bruce Prichard's podcast)

    I listened to the DDP bit and yeah, Bruce's true colors are flying pretty high here. But that is, strange as it sounds, the beauty of the show. He is a direct conduit to the McMahon mindset. He's certainly got his own opinions which maybe stand contrary to Vince's, but Bruce was indoctrinated by working there long enough you can see the way a very complex mind works.

    Prime Time with Sean Mooney

    Okay I'm a few episodes in, and hooked. He's a good podcaster.
  10. Many titles were added several months ago, and new ones have been added in the last 24 hours including: British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith (1993) George The Animal Steele (1987) The Hulkster Hulk Hogan (1985) Hacksaw Jim Duggan (1989) Bret Hart: Greatest Matches (1993) Hulk Hogan: Real American (1989) Jake The Snake Roberts (1987) The Hart Foundation (1987) The Ken Patera Story (1987) Macho Man and Elizabeth (1987) Bruno Sammartino: Living Legend (1987) The Life and Times of Capt. Lou Albano (1986) The Undertaker - The Face of Fear (1994) Ricky The Dragon Steamboat (1986) Roddy Piper's Greatest Hits (1985) Andre The Giant (1985) Mixed feelings on a lot of this, especially having to do with music being replaced. I miss the music for the prologue to those old Coliseum vids, even though they left the sequence intact. Then again, there are matches on a lot of these you can't find elsewhere on the Network.

    The mist

    We need to think up new colors to use.
  14. Very interesting face/face match featuring guys they really weren't doing a whole lot with other than filling the underneath slots. I wonder if Vince put this together to see potential in either as guys who can have a bigger place in the card. Bellomo heels up a little more but I didn't get the feeling the crowd was anything but split in terms of the reaction.

    Prime Time with Sean Mooney

    Any good? The list of interviewees are quite interesting and I've heard one clip of him and Prichard reminiscing about Lord Alfred Hayes which was pretty good. Just wondering if there are any dedicated listeners here.
