Championship Wrestling Date: April 14, 1984 Location: Agricultural Hall, Allentown, Pennsylvania Commentators: Gene Okerlund, Vince McMahon This is another old show that I’ve only touched on in the past.

Five By Five: KB’s Five Favorte Wrestlers

Kind of a big deal but it’s the easiest to write.

WWE Hall of Fame: Class of 2004

You didn’t miss 1997-2003.  They don’t exist.  Also I forgot the Valiant Brothers in the 96 class but they’ve been added at the end.

Thought Of The Day: Missed Masterpieces Of The 80s

Barry Windham vs. Randy Savage   Ted DiBiase vs. Tito Santana   To the best of my knowledge, neither match ever happened.  Tito vs. Ted might have on some house show but I’m 99% positive that Windham vs. Savage never did, at least not when it would have been great (read as before 1989ish when […]

AWF Warriors of Wrestling – September 21, 1995: The Forerunner To Heroes Of Wrestling?

AWF Warriors of Wrestling Date: September 21, 1995 Location: Studio City, Chicago, Illinois Commentators: Mick Karch, Terry Taylor Now here’s one I’d bet that most of you have never heard of.

Primetime Wrestling – April 9, 1985: I’d Boo This Show Too

Prime Time Wrestling Date: April 9, 1985 Hosts: Jack Reynolds, Jesse Ventura Commentators: Gorill Monsoon, Gene Okerlund This is a different kind of wrestling show. The idea here is that the hosts sit in a studio and introduce matches to us. The matches would usually be from one house show that was filmed and then […]

WWF Championship Wrestling – March 14, 1984 – He Beat Him With An Abdominal Stretch?

WWF Championship Wrestling Date: March 10, 1984 Location: Allentown Agricultural Hall, Allentown, Pennsylvania Commentators: Vince McMahon, Gene Okerlund Here’s another old show from the big boys. Championship Wrestling was the flagship show from the late 70s to mid 80s and had some title changes on it. This is a random show but I’ll probably do […]

Best of the WWF Volume 2 – Three Title Changes

Best of the WWF Volume 2 Host: Gorilla Monsoon Commentators: Vince McMahon, Gene Okerlund, Gorilla Monsoon, Jesse Ventura This is a weird time for the WWF as it’s pre-Hogan dominance (although he was champion) and Sammartino is out of the picture. Backlund had just lost the title as the people have turned on him harder […]
