Wrestlemania Count-Up – Wrestlemania VI: Dig That Crowd Man

Wrestlemania VI Date: April 1, 1990 Location: SkyDome, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Attendance: 67,678 Commentators: Jesse Ventura, Gorilla Monsoon Time for another historic main event and in this case it’s probably Hogan’s best match ever. After Hogan basically beat every heel in the company, the only thing left to do was to have someone new come […]

Survivor Series Count-Up – 1990: For Whom The Debuting Bell Tolls

Survivor Series 1990 Date: November 22, 1990 Location: Hartford Civic Center, Hartford, Connecticut Attendance: 16,000 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Roddy Piper This is a somewhat different show that in recent years as we have a main event of sorts.

Greed Date: March 18, 2001 Location: Jacksonville Municipal Coliseum, Jacksonville, Florida Attendance: 5,030 Commentators: Tony Schiavone, Scott Hudson After all that, we’ve come down to this. Seventeen years ago, the first WCW (NWA at the time) super show aired and it was called Starrcade. The main event of that show saw Ric Flair win the […]

Summerslam 1990 Date: August 27, 1990 Location: Philadelphia Spectrum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Attendance: 19,304 Commentators: Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper This is a personal favorite of mine as I’ve probably seen this show upwards of 40 times.

Wrestlemania VI Date: April 1, 1990 Location: SkyDome, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Attendance: 67,678 Commentators: Jesse Ventura, Gorilla Monsoon Time for another historic main event and in this case it’s probably Hogan’s best match ever.
