WWWF @ Staten Island, NY ? July 27, 1965

WWWF World Champion Bruno Sammartino fought Bill Watts to a no contest

I was thinking Watts' heyday was in the 70s. Looks like I was wrong.

 

- 7/27/69: Triple H is born.

Were there three sixes on the back of his head?

 

:P

 

WWWF @ Hamburg, PA - July 27, 1977

WWWF World Champion Superstar Billy Graham defeated Jose Gonzales

The one that killed Brody, right?

 

Tokyo, Japan - Nihon Budokan - July 27, 1978

Bad News Allen pinned Haruka Eigen

WWWF World Champion Bob Backlund fought NWF World Champion Antonio Inoki to a draw in a Best 2 out of 3 falls match; fall #1 - Inoki defeated Backlund via submission with the Octopus at 20:22; fall #2 - Backlund pinned Inoki with a body press at 16:15; fall #3 - the 61-minute time-limit expired; only Backlund?s title was on the line

First point -- I had no idea Bad News was wrestling as early as the 70s.

 

Second point -- I still need to see Backlund/Inoki. I've heard it raved about for a long time, and I've had a soft spot for a lot of their other matches.

 

WWF @ Toronto, Ontario - Maple Leaf Gardens - July 27, 1986

Ricky Steamboat defeated WWF IC Champion Randy Savage via count-out after Savage failed a bodyslam on the floor, with Steamboat falling on top of him (Best of the WWF Vol. 9)

How is this match?

 

WWF @ Plattsburgh, NY - Civic Center - July 27, 1993 (3,000; sell out)

Razor Ramon & Marty Jannetty defeated WWF IC Champion Shawn Michaels & Diesel when Razor pinned Michaels at 11:32 with a urinagi (Inside the WWF)

How's this one?

 

WWF @ Anaheim, CA - Arrowhead Pond - July 27, 1998

Raw is War:

Triple H (w/ Chyna) and X-Pac defeated WWF IC Champion the Rock via count-out when the champion left ringside as Triple H and X-Pac were busy fighting in the ring

I remember digging this. X-Pac is quite good when motivated.

 

WWF Tag Team Champions - WWF World Champion Steve Austin & the Undertaker defeated Billy Gunn & the Road Dogg when Austin pinned Road Dogg with the Stunner

Kawada~! has been known to speak very strongly of this match.

 

Vengeance 03 (Smackdown!) - Denver, CO - Pepsi Arena - July 27, 2003 (9,500)

Vengeance 03 (Smackdown!) - Denver, CO - Pepsi Arena - July 27, 2003 (9,500)

I have this on DVD and still need to watch this show.

You should get round to watching it as it's one of the better shows that the WWE have put on for the past few years. I'll be vague as I don't wont to spoil it. Benoit/Eddie is good. They run a sort of one up man ship story that is pretty cool, however the finish isn't for everyone. Benjamin/Haas vs. Rey/Kidman is probably MOTN as it's a real good tag match. Lesnar/Angle/Show is a good little match as well apart from the finish being real shit.

WWWF World Champion Bruno Sammartino fought Bill Watts to a no contest

I was thinking Watts' heyday was in the 70s. Looks like I was wrong.

Watts turned heel on Bruno in 65 and had a brief main event run against him.

 

WWWF @ Hamburg, PA - July 27, 1977

WWWF World Champion Superstar Billy Graham defeated Jose Gonzales

The one that killed Brody, right?

The same. Gonzalez was a WWWF enhancement guy in the late 70s.

 

WWF @ Toronto, Ontario - Maple Leaf Gardens - July 27, 1986

Ricky Steamboat defeated WWF IC Champion Randy Savage via count-out after Savage failed a bodyslam on the floor, with Steamboat falling on top of him (Best of the WWF Vol. 9)

How is this match?

It's been a few years since I've seen it but I remember liking it.

It's a priority now. I've seen lots of Benoit/Guerrero, and most people I know who have seen most of their matches have been left disappointed by it, but I'm still interested in seeing if they can at least pull off a *** match here, great or not. I'll never complain about having to watch a match with either guy. The tag looked really great on paper, and if Kidman was 1998-1999 Kidman I'd be even more excited, as I was a big fan of his at the time and was terribly disappointed with his WWE run where they pretty much zapped all the charisma out of him. Strangely enough, I think Big Show is one of the better guys at wrestling triple threat matches.

I have like 9 CDs of individual matches in mpg or avi format, and one of them is the Backlund-Inoki match where Inoki wins the WWF title. It's an interesting match, you'd think their styles might not mesh well but it was pretty decent.
