Triplemania 23 Date: August 9, 2015 Location: Arena Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico Attendance: 22,300 Commentators: Hugo Savinovich, Matt Striker This is a show that was talked about quite a bit back in the day as it featured English commentary from Matt Striker (oh yay) and Hugh Savinovich (oh….yay) but was plagued by some […]

Thunder – March 29, 2000: I’m Embarrassed By This Show

Thunder Date: March 29, 2000 Location: Astro Arena, Houston, Texas Attendance: 5,727 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Bobby Heenan This show is pretty much worthless given what’s coming in a few weeks.

Thunder Date: March 15, 2000 Location: Patriot Center, Fairfax, Virginia Attendance: 5,891 Commentators: Mike Tenay, Bobby Heenan It’s the go home show for Uncensored and it can’t come soon enough.

Wrestler of the Day – December 8

Required Viewing #14: Where In The World Did This Come From?

I’m getting some Nitro reviews done in advance (the things I do for you people) and ran across this match.  I barely remember it and watching it again made me scream at my computer.  The participants are going to surprise you.
