On This Day: July 31, 1988 – Wrestlefest 1988: Hogan vs. Andre IV

Wrestlefest 1988 Date: July 31, 1988 Location: County Stadium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Attendance: 25,866 Commentators: Alfred Hayes, Billy Graham, Sean Mooney This is another show a lot of you likely have never heard of. It’s in essence a HUGE house show in a baseball stadium that was filmed and released on home video. That being said, […]

Monday Nitro – March 9, 1998: One Heck Of A Six Man Tag

Monday Nitro #130 Date: March 9, 1998 Location: Lawrence Joel Memorial Veterans Coliseum, Winston-Salem, North Carolina Commentators: Mike Tenay, Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, Larry Zbyszko It’s the go home show for Uncensored and the card is almost entirely set. Tonight is going to be about finalizing everything for Sunday with the focus likely being on […]

Summerslam Count-Up – 1995: The Other (And Maybe Better) Shawn vs. Razor Ladder Match

Summerslam 1995 Date: August 27, 1995 Location: Pittsburgh Civic Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Attendance: 18,062 Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Vince McMahon … No please don’t make me do THIS show! I’ll pay you to not make me do this waste of a show. If there’s a bottom of the barrel for Summerslam and perhaps the WWF in […]

On This Day: July 30, 2000 – i-Generation Superstars of Wrestling (Rodman Down Under): Son of Heroes of Wrestling

Rodman Down Under Date: July 30, 2000 Location: Sydney SuperDome, Sydney, Australia Attendance: 10,000 Commentators: Vince Mancini, Ted DiBiase Why does Youtube have to torment me like this? This is a one off PPV from a tour of Australia that a bunch of old guys (and Dennis Rodman for no apparent reason) put together for […]

Rebellion 2001: Edge and Christian In A Cage

Rebellion 2001 Date: November 3, 2001 Location: M.E.N. Arena, Manchester, England Attendance: 15,612 Commentators: Jim Ross, Paul Heyman I continue my war on Europe here with the next to last European PPV, Rebellion 2001. This is at the very tail end of the Alliance era so the main event is Austin vs. Rock for the […]

Saturday Night’s Main Event 22 Date: July 29, 1989 Location: Worchester Centrum, Worchester, Massachusetts Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jesse Ventura This show is kind of a mess on paper. It has Hogan vs. Honky and the Brain Busters vs. Demolition so the card isn’t that bad, but at the same time there’s nothing here that makes […]

Summerslam 1994 Date: August 29, 1994 Location: United Center, Chicago, Illinois Attendance: 23,000 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler Things have changed a lot in the last year.
