Royal Rumble 1993 Date: January 24, 1993 Location: ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California Attendance: 16,000 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan This is a pretty forgotten show for reasons that should be obvious.

Royal Rumble 1991 Date: January 19, 1991 Location: Miami Arena, Miami, Florida Attendance: 16,000 Commentators: Gorilla Monsoon, Roddy Piper So it’s 1991 now and the US is at war (kind of).

Tuesday Night Titans Date: November 13, 1984 Location: Video One Studios, Owings Mills, Maryland Hosts: Vince McMahon, Lord Alfred Hayes Another request here, partially so I can say I’ve done an episode of this show.
