  1. Aside from Nitro, I think they meant wrestling's mainstream popularity among casual fans. Sure, every year has great matches, nobody is denying that, but as someone who was there, being a wrestling fan in 92-96 wasnt exactly going to get you friends (I had friends who still watched throughout those years, but I found only a handful of other people who also watched). Even the NWO was never a big deal in my High School (it took until the rise of Austin for more people to admit to being a fan). Although, surprisingly, the video games were still popular, at least RAW and Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game
  2. I would love to see Todd come back full time. He was let go from his radio gig a few years ago, so it's not like he's too busy. I mean, they brought back Raymond Rougeau, why not Todd?

    WWE Network... It's Here

    COTC isnt up there yet, the ones they do have are the WWE PPV.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Considering they still dont have any pre-2019 Smackdown, ECW TV, or SNME, they're really getting lazy. But hey, they recently uploaded the Edge and Christian show at least!

    Pet Peeves in Wrestling

    It's practically tradition at this point, but the whole "heel holds/distracts babyface so another heel can attack, only for the face to move out of the way, allowing heel miscommunication" is one of the laziest spots ever, I got sick of it a few years after I started watching.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Wouldnt be surprised to see the WWE negotiate with Fox to put some of the more "niche" content (ie, AWA, Mid-South, Hidden Gems) on Tubi (of course, you then run the risk of it never being updated).
  7. I'm also kind of surprised how much non-WWE owned material shows up on them. The Savage one had ICW and Memphis footage (likely from Poffo and Lawler's private collections), and the Shawn one had a brief bit of Continental footage. While we're on the topic of the A&E shows, the next episode of the WWE Treasures show is going to have Jake Roberts, which makes me wonder how far back it was recorded (yeah, Jericho was on the Stone Cold podcast, but that's a far cry from having an AEW-signed guy on a WWE TV show).
  8. Am I the only one who thinks that one hour is the ideal time for a wrestling tv show? I mean, 2 hours is fine (3 hours is ridiculously long), but with one hour it leaves you wanting more and it means you dont see the same stars every week. I've been watching MLW, and they pack a LOT into their one hour program.
  9. I'm actually finding more enjoyment in the WWE Hidden Treasures show. Sure, it's just a WWE version of American Pickers, but it is cool seeing those memorabilia collections, and at least it gives hope that WWE IS working on a physical HOF.
  10. So, speaking of the A&E biographies, the warrior one is NOT going to be a puff piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vuxTTkcJlw
  11. They did a Yokozuna doc that focused heavily on his obesity.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    I wonder if Vice will change the schedule so that the Warrior one can air either before or the week after the A&E Warrior Biography, so we can have an interesting contrast.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    I like the concept of the Jericho book, but I doubt he discusses EVERY match, that would include nondescript house show matches, tv squashes, etc. He likely lists all of his matches, and goes into detail about the more important ones (his debut, his title wins, and such). Also, only 2722 matches in his whole career? For a guy who's been wrestling since 1990, thats actually surprisingly low.
  14. Am I the only one who thinks Ice Train was underrated? I'm going through a watch through of 1996 PPVs, and I just got to the Fall Brawl match he had with Scott Norton and I have to say, he was actually pretty good. He had some well-done power moves and moved around quite well (and a few shows before that we had that banger with him and Norton vs the Steiners). He's apparently working on a comeback, hopefully it goes well for him.
  15. Pretty much a fluff piece, though he did say he "did some bad things" during his departure from the WWE. Legal issues probably prevent him from going into details about him and Debra.
