Summerslam 1993 Date: August 30, 1993 Location: Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 23,954 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan A lot has changed in the last year.

On This Day: July 28, 1984 – Championship Wrestling: The Raw Of Its Day

Championship Wrestling Date: July 28, 1984 Location: Mid-Huston Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, New York Commentators: Vince McMahon, Tony Garea This is one of those shows that I haven’t touched much but it was a big deal in its time. Championship Wrestling was probably the top syndicated show for the company in the early 80s so these […]

Total Divas Is GLORIOUS

If you can, make sure to catch the replay of this.  It’s one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in years and is far more of a train wreck than the previews made it out to be.  Find a copy of it and kick back for an hour because it’s the funniest thing a wrestling […]

Monday Night Raw Date: July 27, 1998 Location: Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, California Attendance: 12,019 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler It’s the night after Fully Loaded and we have new tag champions in Austin/Undertaker.

On This Day: July 26, 2004 – Monday Night Raw: HHH vs. Benoit For An Hour

Monday Night Raw Date: July 26, 2004 Location: Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler So last night I spent four hours downloading a copy of this show.

Summerslam 1992 Date: August 31, 1992 Location: Wembley Stadium, London, England Attendance: 80,355 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bobby Heenan This is probably the most famous of all the Summerslams even to this day as we’re not only outside but for the first and only time ever, a regular PPV is being held in England. It’s another […]

Thunder – March 5, 1998: Let The Non-Matches Begin

Thunder Date: March 5, 1998 Location: Columbus Civic Center, Columbus, Ohio Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan, Lee Marshall WCW is in an interesting little groove right now as they’re not taking their shows seriously at all other than the main event and it’s making things much easier to get through. We’re ten days from Uncensored […]

Summerslam 1991 Date: August 26, 1991 Location: Madison Square Garden, New York City, New York Attendance: 20,000 Commentators: Bobby Heenan, Roddy Piper, Gorilla Monsoon This is a show that almost no one remembers other than one match.

Smackdown – July 26, 2013: Well That Was Different

Smackdown Date: July 26, 2013 Location: American Bank Center, Corpus Christi, Texas Commentators: Michael Cole, John Bradshaw Layfield We’re closing in on Summerslam and the main story on Smackdown is we have no #1 contender to the title. Orton beat Del Rio clean last week but wasn’t even on Raw to acknowledge the win. Alberto […]

Fully Loaded 1999 Date: July 25, 1999 Location: Marine Midland Arena, Buffalo, New York Attendance: 16,605 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler So with 5 WWF PPVs left in the 1990s, I figured I might as well start getting that number whittled down. Not to mention that one of the 5 was a request so why […]
