USWA Championship Wrestling – March 28, 1991: I Want To Keep Watching This

USWA Championship Wrestling Date: March 28, 1991 Location: USWA Television Studios, Memphis, Tennessee Commentators: Dave Brown, Michael St. John I haven’t done one of these in about two months now.

Summerslam 1990 Date: August 27, 1990 Location: Philadelphia Spectrum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Attendance: 19,304 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper This is the first PPV that I ever had bought for me and we literally went through three copies of it as the tape itself was literally falling apart.

Monday Night Raw Date: November 9, 1998 Location: Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas Attendance: 13,684 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the final show before Survivor Series and the Deadly Game Tournament to crown a new WWF Champion. Nothing has been announced tonight but Rock is currently out of the tournament, so I’d bet there’s going […]

Summerslam 1989 Date: August 28, 1989 Location: Meadowlands Arena, East Rutherford, New Jersey Attendance: 20,000 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Jesse Ventura So we’re a year removed from the first Summerslam and quite a bit has changed in the WWF.

History of Summerslam Count-Up – 1988: Warrior Cuts The Gordian Knot

As luck would have it, I got the old format back on the day that the Summerslam Count-Up begins.   Welcome to an other of my history threads. As I’ve done with Wrestlemania and In Your House, I’ll be starting with the first ever show in the series and every day put up a new […]

Impact Wrestling Date: July 26, 2012 Location: Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Mike Tenay, Taz After last week’s Aces and 8’s show, it should be interesting to see what the retaliation is tonight.
