As the Summer heats up, so does Match Jukebox in July! This month's selections are jam packed with several classics to satisfy even the most old-school of fans. But there's also a bevy of bloodfests that will bring a smile to every hardcore fans' face. In a Match Jukebox first, see one of the greatest WWE Champions of all time, Bruno Sammartino, in action against his arch nemesis, Ivan Koloff. Relive the classic rivalry between Hulk Hogan and the Nature Boy Ric Flair. See the Eighth Wonder of the World Andre the Giant in action against Ultimate Warrior. And if those matches aren't enough to satisfy the extreme fan, then you won't want to miss Terry Funk vs. Sabu in their infamous Barbed Wire Match from Born To Be Wired! Any way you slice it, this is an action-packed month on Match Jukebox!

 

ECW - Bill Alfonso vs. Beulah

September 20, 1997 | Approx. run time: 7 mins.

Neither Bill Alfonso nor Beulah were full-time wrestlers in ECW, in fact, during this time they were just managers. But when the two got in the ring together, extreme chaos would ensue. Beulah may have been one of the hottest Divas in ECW history, but she was also one of the most extreme and she shows it in this brutal and bloody match against Bill Alfonso!

 

ECW - Terry Funk vs. Sabu

August 9, 1997 | Approx. run time: 25 mins.

If any two competitors personify the extreme in Extreme Championship Wrestling, it would be Sabu and Terry Funk. These two have had some classic battles over the years, but perhaps none have been as extreme as their classic Barbed Wire Match at Born to be Wired. With the regular ring ropes replaced with barbed wire, you can't even begin to imagine the brutality that takes place. You'll have to see this match to believe it!

 

AWA Superclash - Jerry Lawler vs. Kerry Von Erich

December 13, 1988 | Approx. run time: 26 mins.

If blood makes you squeamish, this match is not for you. In fact, this match could go down in history as one of the bloodiest matches of all time. Kerry Von Erich was the World Class Championship Wrestling Champion and Jerry Lawler was the AWA Champion. This match was to unify the belts. With so much on the line, it's no surprise that it turned into such a gruesome bloodbath. You'll have to order this match to see who emerged as the undisputed champion.

 

WCW Nitro - Louie Spicolli vs. Juventud

January 26, 1998 | Approx. run time: 13 mins.

The late Louie Spicolli was best known for being an nWo lackey and trying to appease Scott Hall. This was Spicolli's debut match. Hall wanted to see what Spicolli had to offer and to see if he was nWo material, so he put him to the test against Juventud. Could Spicolli pick up a win over the current member of the Mexicools and earn his way into the nWo?

 

WCW Halloween Havoc - Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan

October 23, 1994 | Approx. run time: 29 mins.

Hulk Hogan beat Ric Flair for the WCW Championship at Bash at the Beach a couple of months earlier. This time not only was the WCW Championship on the line, but both Superstars' careers were on the line as well. To add even more intrigue to this classic, it took place in the not-so-friendly confines of a steel cage and Mr. T was the special guest referee. Could Hogan make it two in a row against the Nature Boy, or would the Dirtiest Player in the Game send the Hulkster into early retirement?

 

WWE SummerSlam - Power & Glory vs. The Rockers

August 27, 1990 | Approx. run time: 8 mins.

The Rockers were one of the most exciting tag teams in WWE history, but Shawn Michaels came into this match at SummerSlam with a knee injury. Power and Glory knew this and Hercules attacked HBK's bum knee with his trademark steel chain. With Marty Jannetty having to deal with Hercules and Paul Roma on his own, could he pick up a win for The Rockers?

 

WWE New Year's Revolution - Elimination Chamber

January 9, 2005 | Approx. run time: 51 mins.

This was the third time ever that there was an Elimination Chamber Match, but it was the first time that no one entered the match as a champion. With the World Heavyweight Championship vacated, it was every man for themselves, trying to become the top dog on RAW. Shawn Michaels was the special guest referee, so there was no telling what could happen. Edge, Chris Jericho, Chris Benoit, Randy Orton, Triple H and Batista laid it all on the line for one shot at glory. Who would achieve that goal? Order this instant classic and find out!

 

WWE - Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff vs. British Bulldogs

November 26, 1986 | Approx. run time: 17 mins.

WWE Hall of Famers The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff won the World Tag Team Championship at the first WrestleMania. The British Bulldogs walked away from WrestleMania 2 as World Tag Team Champs. The Bulldogs put the gold on the line against the dangerous, veteran tag team. Could Davey Boy and Dynamite hold on to the belts, or would the future Hall of Famers regain the Championship?

 

WWE - Bruno Sammartino vs. Ivan Koloff

February 15, 1975 | Approx. run time: 12 mins.

Ivan Koloff was one of the most hated men in WWE. After all, he was the man that ended Bruno Sammartino's nearly 8 year WWE Championship reign in 1971. Sammartino regained the championship in 1973, and Koloff was hoping history would repeat itself. There was a catch though - this time the match took place inside of a steel cage. Would Sammartino be able to escape with the gold or would the Russian Bear defeat him once again?

 

WWE - The Snake Pit

March 21, 1987 | Approx. run time: 5 mins.

Jake "The Snake" Roberts was one of WWE's all-time greats inside the ring. But he also hosted one of the most entertaining interview segments of all-time as well - The Snake Pit. This edition of The Snake Pit was one of the most memorable. Jake's guest was none other than WWE Champion Hulk Hogan and it took place just one week before his title defense against Andre the Giant at WrestleMania III. You won't want to miss this emotionally-charged interview!

 

WWE - Ultimate Warrior vs. Andre the Giant

September 30, 1989 | Approx. run time: 13 mins.

Ultimate Warrior was one of the most dominating Superstars in WWE history. The Warrior was in the middle of his second reign as Intercontinental Champion and he seemed unstoppable. But he hadn't been face to face with a giant yet - Andre the Giant to be exact. Would the Ultimate Warrior be able to draw enough strength from his little Warriors to overcome the Eighth Wonder of the World? Watch this match to find out!

 

WWE - Roddy Piper vs. Paul Orndorff

July 13, 1985 | Approx. run time: 14 mins.

Just a few months earlier, WWE Hall of Famers "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff were tag team partners. But after WrestleMania everything fell apart. Orndorff was pinned in the duo's match against Hulk Hogan & Mr. T, and Piper blamed the loss on Mr. Wonderful. The tension between these two was so thick you could cut it with a knife, but which future WWE Hall of Famer would come out on top?

 

WWE - Hulk Hogan vs. Ted DiBiase

December 17, 1979 | Approx. run time: 14 mins.

Hulk Hogan and "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase were bitter rivals in the late 1980s but that wasn't the first time their paths crossed. In fact, the first time they met in the ring Hogan was a rule-breaker and DiBiase was a fan-favorite. With the roles reversed, would DiBiase be able to overcome the mighty Hogan?

 

WCW Collision in Korea - Ric Flair vs. Antonio Inoki

August 5, 1995 | Approx. run time: 20 mins.

Antonio Inoki is arguably the most famous wrestler in the history of Japanese wrestling. Inoki has had legendary battles with the likes of Bob Backlund, Hulk Hogan and even Muhammad Ali in addition to dominating the world of wrestling in Japan. This match against Ric Flair at Collision in Korea ranks right up there with his best matches. You won't want to miss this historic battle!

 

WWE Ground Zero - Brian Pillman vs. Goldust

September 7, 1997 | Approx. run time: 15 mins.

This was Brian Pillman's last match on pay-per-view before his untimely death, and it was certainly a memorable one. Pillman squared off against Goldust in this one, but there was more than just pride at stake. Goldberg's manager and wife, Marlena, was on the line. If Pillman won the match, he would receive the services of Marlena for 30 days. Ironically, Marlena would play a large part in the ending, but who would her involvement end up helping?

 

WWE SummerSlam - Demolition vs. Hart Foundation

August 29, 1988 | Approx. run time: 11 mins.

This was the first SummerSlam ever, so it's only fitting that it included a tag team classic. This match occurred on the heels of The Hart Foundation firing their manager, Jimmy Hart, but Hart found a loophole in his contract that allowed him to show up for the match anyways. Jimmy Hart and his trademark megaphone ended up getting involved, but would it lead to a win for Demolition or the Hart Foundation?

 

WWE RAW - Ric Flair vs. Mr. Perfect

January 25, 1993 | Approx. run time: 21 mins.

Ric Flair and Mr. Perfect are two of the best technical wrestlers of all-time, so it's no surprise this RAW match became an instant classic. This was also a Loser Leaves Town Match, so the stakes were at an all-time high. Would Mr. Perfect perfectly end Flair's career or would the Dirtiest Player in the Game find a way to come out on top?

 

WWE - The Barber Shop

January 11, 1992 | Approx. run time: 7 mins.

Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake was a former World Tag Team Champion and went on to have a very impressive singles career as well. But he's also well-known for his popular interview segments called The Barber Shop. The Rockers are the guests on this edition of The Barber Shop, and it has gone down as one of the most famous editions ever. Trouble had been brewing between long-time partners Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty, but no one saw this outcome coming! You won't want to miss this legendary moment!

 

WWE SummerSlam - Demolition vs. Hart Foundation

August 27, 1990 | Approx. run time: 18 mins.

This was the second time Demolition faced the Hart Foundation at SummerSlam, but this time it was a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. The Hart Foundation may have had better conditioning, but Demolition had greater power. It was a match too close to call. The Legion of Doom made a shocking appearance during the match, but would it lead to the Hart Foundation becoming new World Tag Team Champions? Watch this match to find out!

I usually don't buy into these things, but this looks like a great assortment of matches. Anyone have any experiences, positive or negative, with WWE Jukebox?

I buy the jukebox every month regardless of the selection, but this month looks exceptionally strong. The only problem I ever had was some of the matches don't play right on Window's Media.

I've always been pleased with the program itself.

 

Lawler/Von Erich I want to see. Flair/Hennig was an excellent match, but I haven't seen it in over 10 years. I remember Warrior/Andre, as Andre practically hugged the ropes the entire match.
