    Nia Jax vs Ronda Rousey (WWE MitB 2018)

    I thought Ronda was dead on that Samoan drop that looked at first like Rousey took like a pancake flop.

    Guys who were with the company far longer than you remember

    I believe Koloff shows up for a one shot TV match during the 1990 era where Ole was bringing in cheap, older guys.

    So at least he was only booked weak in front of his home audience? Roddy Piper fails to show up for his tag team war with Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Snuka, but that doesn't stop things from being so wild that a mild riot breaks out with the fans at the end of the battle. The Junkyard Dog gets another crack at IC champ Greg Valentine...and the rest of the card is true dreck as a parade of squashes and jobber matches pollute the rest of this Boston card from May 1985.

    Sean Mooney put up a bit he did while working for a sports show with Joe Namath. Mooney learns to wrestle (including a cameo from a future star). This supposedly got him his WWF gig.

    What Happened When with Tony Schiavone

    That just reeked of Tony playing up the shit on things and say outrageous stuff part of the show. He also went on a riff about how the show was too long, when it was half as long as the PPVs they've covered.
