Monday Night Raw Date: September 30, 2013 Location: Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Biloxi, Mississippi Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield It’s the final show before Battleground a mere fifteen days after Night of Champions.

On This Day: September 30, 1996 – Monday Night Raw: Just Surrender The Wars Now

Monday Night Raw Date: September 30, 1996 Location; Hershey Park Arena, Hershey, Pennsylvania Attendance: 3,923 Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Kevin Kelly We’re in an interesting time for the WWF at this point. By interesting I mean WCW is absolutely murdering them and WWF is clinging to whatever they can find. It’s about a week […]

On This Day: September 29, 1984 – Championship Wrestling: There Is Wrestling Outside Of Hulk Hogan

Championship Wrestling Date: September 29, 1984 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Bruno Sammartino This is one of those shows where it’s a mix of matches from various arenas, hence the lack of a location or attendance. This is right before the wrestling world exploded with Hulkamania but the first steps have already been taken. The main event […]

I Want To Talk A Little Bit About Catering To Different Groups Of Fans

One of the biggest complaints you’ll see today is that wrestling is booked for kids or that so many fans think the product is stupid. How many times have you heard someone complain about John Cena targeting almost exclusively to children with his promos (ignoring that this isn’t correct)? I’ve tried to explain this over […]

NXT Date: September 28, 2010 Location: U.S. Cellular Coliseum, Bloomington, Indiana Commentators: Josh Matthews, Michael Cole Back in Bloomington this week as the show was taped. There’s a chance this is the final episode on Sci-Fi but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. On my digital preview there’s a sci-fi show on next week, but a […]

On This Day: September 27, 1998 – Breakdown: In Your House: Steve Austin vs. The World

This is another very old review which needs to be redone.  Not a bad idea actually.   In Your House 24: Breakdown Date: September 27, 1998 Location: Copps Coliseum, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada Attendance: 17,405 Commentators: Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross Summerslam has passed and Austin, much to everyone’s surprise, kept the belt by beating Taker clean. […]

Thought of the Day: Back In The Day

So I’ve been watching Raw from 1999 and the following becomes obvious.

Monday Night Raw Date: April 12, 1999 Location; Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan Attendance: 14,701 Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross Things are again picking up around here as the Ministry is growing out of control and threatening both Vince and his daughter. Last week Ryan Shamrock was sacrificed to Undertaker’s Higher Power with […]

Thoughts on the CM Punk DVD
