Articles from November 2011

NXT – November 30, 2011 – The Derrick Bateman Show

NXT Date: November 30, 2011 Location: Time Warner Cable Arena, Charlotte, North Carolina Commentators: Josh Matthews, Matt Striker Time for another week of this. We’re almost in December of a show that started in early March. We’re also approaching the wedding of Maxine and Bateman, which I think is scheduled for late January. This show […]

Halloween Havoc 1999 – It’s Russo’s First Show

Halloween Havoc 1999 Date: October 24, 1999 Location: MGM Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada Attendance: 8,464 Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Tony Schiavone This is the first show of the Russo Era in WCW. Therefore, the show is a total mess and the ending is as stupid as you could ask for. This should be an interesting […]

Smackdown – November 29, 2011 – Christmas In November

Smackdown Date: November 29, 2011 Location: Time Warner Cable Arena, Charlotte, North Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Booker T, Josh Matthews This is a special edition of the show as it’s airing live on Tuesday. Also it’s the holiday episode, which I think is a catch all for Thanksgiving and Christmas, which is next month but […]

Crockett Cup 1988 – Thank Goodness This Is The Last One

Crockett Cup 1988 Date: April 22, 1988/April 23, 1988 Location: Greenville Memorial Auditorium, Greenville, South Carolina/Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina Attendance: 4,400/6,300 Commentators: Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone It’s the final one of these and this is by far the most complicated of all. As usual the tournament was scheduled to have 24 teams, but there […]

Monday Night Raw – November 28, 2011 – Fast Paced And Awesome

Monday Night Raw Date: November 28, 2011 Location: Colonial Life Arena, Columbia, South Carolina Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler Things are a little bit different tonight and I’m not sure where they’re going to go tonight. Truth has been wellnessed away for the next month so I’m not sure what Miz is going to do. […]

Best of the WWF Volume 18 – Remember Volume 16? This is Nothing Like That.

Best of the WWF Volume 18 Host: Sean Mooney Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan, Sean Mooney, Alfred Hayes It’s another of these things and by the laws of science, wrestling and nature, it HAS to be better than Volume 16. After this one we’re going to be halfway through this series so at least we’re […]

Monday Nitro – October 7, 1996 – Monster Trucks And Limos

Monday Nitro #56 Date: October 7, 1996 Location: Savannah Civic Center, Savannah, Georgia Attendance: 4,300 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Eric Bischoff, Larry Zbyszko, Bobby Heenan, Mike Tenay Please let this be more interesting than last week. I don’t think I can take another one of those shows. This is another build to the Halloween Havoc PPV […]

Monday Nitro – September 30, 1996 – All About Racecars!

Monday Nitro #55 Date: September 30, 1996 Location: Gund Arena, Cleveland, Ohio Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Eric Bischoff, Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko We’re still getting closer to Halloween Havoc here. The card here looks pretty uninteresting other than a few matches sprinkled here and there. This show gets a little boring until we get to 1997 […]

Clash of the Champions 30 – The Reviving Elbow

Clash of the Champions 30 Date: January 25, 1995 Location: Casear’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada Attendance: 3,200 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan Back to 1995 WCW because all of the time I had suffered through it wasn’t enough I guess. This is another attempt by me to end this far too long stretch of stuff […]

Ring of Honor Date: November 26, 2011 Location: Davis Arena, Louisville, Kentucky Commentators: Kevin Kelly, Nigel McGuinness We close out November with this one and to be honest I can’t say I care in the slightest. Unless things pick WAY up next month, I think I’m dropping this at the end of the year. There’s […]
