    WWE Network... It's Here

    Who said anything about money? I said career longevity. Yes, money (and the more important part here, security) is part of that, but not all of it. It sure as hell beats prostituting himself in high school gyms for $50 a shot like a weathered old gigolo, which is probably what he's doing now. "The Wrestler," anyone? Sabu made his choice, he cared more about something else than money and career longevity. Who are you to tell him he made the wrong choice? Do you know if he's happy or not happy right now with his life? I know he eventually went to WWE but im not sure how his run would have gone during the invasion when you look how they treated Tommy Dreamer during that time frame. All the years later Sabu finally came in and he basically got treated like a jobber. Sure there was a interest in making money after the ONS event but I think they shouldnt have used the same 3 letters and came up with something else or at least not used the old ECW guys.

    If they had held off for a week or two they could had better response at the Georgia Dome. I dont think they wanted a good response. They probably got exactly what they wanted at the time. Was their any truth about the rumours about Schavoine coming in around this time? I read something about they were in talks but because he kept constantly calling in asking they changed their mind. Not sure if it's the first, but Harley Race vs Hogan in 1988 predates. In 1985, Terry Funk took bumps on the ringside table around the loop during his feud with Junkyard Dog. Hogan slammed Quake thru a table at Summerslam 90. Does summerslam count though as Quake missed the table and didnt go through it.

    Im glad they did the tribute it was great to see some japan Benoit matches. Pardon? You are glad they did a tribute to someone on the day they murdered their family, because you got to see some puro? I was a big fan of Benoit, still am. Im not going to change my opinion just because what we do or dont know just to please online fans.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    I think people want a hidden gem to be something new never seen before like a OVW dark match.
  8. So basically they just wanted him to break Punk's record and that is why it didn't change.

    What was so wrong with his match on Raw with Booker?

    Don't get me started on those Turner video's they ruined so many shows on the UK releases cutting matches for no reason.

    Holy Grails

    That sounds like a awesome idea. Would you stretch it to include WCW like the Simmons/Vader title change?

    Holy Grails

    Id like to see the Snake Pit where Jake DDT's Hogan, ive seen a clip of their match from Providence but am hoping WWE has the footage but Im not sure as they mentioned it on the Jake DVD but didn't show it.

    - Sorry, you are right, the Sunday afternoon thing was in summer of 95 (because I remember them airing some Goldust vignettes). Was it still Challenge at that point though? I thought they had switched to Action Zone (in addition to Superstars) at that point. - The last show on DSF before the hiatus was, I think, the Raw after Royal Rumble 98 (the Rumble itself was the first big-5 show for a long time not being aired on free TV). The return show was a one hour clipshow of Wrestlemania XIV plus the full version of Survivor Series 98. - What do you mean me about what I still have? Newsletters? Sorry, no, I never got any of them. If you are talking about old tapes, I suppose I have some VHS tapes with German WWF PPV (big 5 only) versions from 94 to 97, though not complete. The WCW stuff I always taped over. I have not the slightest clue in what condition these tapes are either. Regarding DF1 exclusive stuff: XWT seems to have three WCW Germany shows, so at least Alex Wright vs. Tom Gerhardt (fighting over a stolen exhaust pipe) and Axel Schulz counting a pinfall for a Scorpion Deathlock will live forever. I can vaguly remember a mate telling me they had old wwf on RTL in 1991 so when I tuned in I noticed Savage/Gang from SNME and several other matches from that show but they inserted a Bulldogs/Demo house show match.

    Thought id give Tough Enough a watch because I really enjoyed the first season and didnt realise they had exclusive footage on it. Bit of a odd moment where Hunter has a go at one of the guys for just having a Goldberg poster on the wall, spouted some crap about saying why be fan of a guy who been having 4 min matches ran threough everyone and said he walked when he wouldnt do a job calling it disrespectful towards Droz who got paralysed. I know fans have their favs but seriously running a trainee down just because his fav is Goldberg. You can't force people to pick their fav who you want it to be. Seemed a bit of a asshole thing to say, but I think it came across more of HIS TV character than the real Triple H. Its nice to recognise alot of stars when you see them now.
