    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I get that problem, but if I then hit the Browse button in the menu at the top it works fine.

    Usually the kayfabe explanation is that the match order for the final nights is only preliminary and will be rearranged if necessary based on who is still in contention and how. (The idea being in both kayfabe and reality that you try to have the winner decided as late as possible.)

    I checked out the 1989 Rumble (first with 30) and seven years later only four were still with WWF: Shawn Michaels as champion, Jake Roberts returning for a brief run and the Bushwhackers (who at this point in 1996 were 10 days away from their last match.)

    WWE Network... It's Here

    It's Peacock Premium Plus. Which is a bit odd as the only difference is something (ads) being taken away.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Most of the time stuff leaves streaming platforms is because it's licensed for a set period, though. One of the key benefits of WWE Network is/was that it owned all the footage so there's no need to remove it.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Piper-Brown is now removed from the non-Peacock original WWE Network. Thumbnails still there but the video skips straight past it.

    "Concussions aren't good for you" has been obvious for all time. "Suffering a second concussion while recovering from a first will exponentially increase the risk of long-term or permanent damage" is a more recent (2000s) finding. It's particularly relevant to wrestling where the repetition of specific spots (and even entire match sequences several times a week on house show swings) means there was a good shot you'd do something that caused a concussion, suck it up, then go out the next night and do the exact same thing.

    2020 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame

    Slightly off-topic, but an odd thought I had: which wrestler in the HOF (inducted primarily as a wrestler) had the fewest main events during their career? I wonder if it's Liger given he spent the bulk of his career in one promotion where he maybe only had a handful of main events.

    Not sure what's been on recently, but everything listed for the rest of August and September is 70s/80s. https://www.ntv.co.jp/G/prowrestling/classic/

    WrestleMania 36

    The Cancellation of Jim Cornette

    It obviously wasn't announced in any way, but IIRC, at the point the MSG tickets went on sale it wouldn't have been unreasonable to hope/think/predict Omega-Okada would wind up headlining.

    My New Year's Revolution: The Rewatchening

    Don't know how many of them are any good, but there's four different JBA-Glamour Girls matches on Prime Time Wrestling in 87-88 on the Network (plus the Royal Rumble match) and a Tateno-Kai singles match.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    Thinking again, that sounds right, particularly with the trademark issue.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    It was one year of WWWF Championship Wrestling from 82-3 and then the first year of Superstars of Wrestling from 86-7. IIRC, one of the WWF shows at the time had been cancelled and Sky had a deal for a certain number of hours programming each week, so they did Classics to make up the time. (It's possible it was to replace Heat, which moved to another broadcaster for two years in the UK.)
