The SmarK Rant for WWF Monday Night RAW – 04.07.97

Yeah, might as well start mixing these in again because NXT just isn’t moving the chains for the blog, I’m afraid.

RATED TV-MA! Sexual content, mature language and violence, apparently, aka Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

Taped from somewhere not mentioned. Muncie, IN, according to the Observer. No wonder.

Warrior as a worker


So The Ultimate Warrior gets no small amount of flack for his crappy record as a worker, but when paired with Randy Savage, a notoriously OCD match planner, he had some great matches, and the WM VI match with Hogan was planned out start to finish by Pat Patterson was an all time classic too. So is it fair to say that Warrior could put on a great show as long as someone kept him on a tight leash?


Thanks

Phil

​Yeah, I mean Warrior was at the very least a guy who understood his own limitations most of the time and didn’t try to do more than he could. Why do more than a 30 second squash as long as it’s working, right? And he was also smart enough to let others who knew better work things out for him. Contrast with, say, Sid, who just did what he wanted the entire time and couldn’t get a good match unless someone like Shawn Michaels literally worked the entire match around him and did all the work.​

It’s a big night around here as we have Destination X. This show is almost all about the X-Division, but it turns out that we also need a new World Champion. Alberto El Patron is still suspended and has now been stripped of the title. The situation will be handled tonight but we have no idea how. Let’s get to it.

Smoky Mountain Wrestling TV – July 4th, 1992

SMOKY MOUNTAIN WRESTLING TV – July 4th, 1992

 

 

– Last week on SMW TV… Summer Blast ’92 is coming together with the top three matches already signed… Brian Lee has enlisted “Hands of Stone” Ron Garvin to even the odds against Dirty White Boy and Paul Orndorff… The Fantastics and Heavenly Bodies got into a wild backstage brawl, costing each man $1,500 in fines, and will face off at Summer Blast in a Smoky Mountain Street Fight… Tim Horner repaid Buddy Landell for costing him a shot at the Tag Titles, by costing him his match with Brian Lee for the SMW Heavyweight Title. Landell was about to use an illegal object, so the interference wasn’t totally unjustified.

We’re less than two weeks away from Wrestlemania and….yeah I’m not really caring that much yet. The show just isn’t looking interesting and I’m not sure how much tonight is going to help. This week’s big attraction is Steve Austin vs. Eric Bischoff II for no apparent reason, though a lack of logic has never stopped WWE before. Let’s get to it.

It’s the go home show for Takeover: Brooklyn III and the main event is an interesting case of booking for what comes after the big show. Tonight’s main event will see Roderick Strong vs. #1 contender Drew McIntyre. If Strong wins, he gets to face NXT Champion Bobby Roode at some point after Takeover, but he won’t be involved in the title match on Saturday no matter what. Let’s get to it.

Wednesday Wackness

You may have noticed some downtime on the site this afternoon, which is long story short because the blog is getting more traffic than a shared server can comfortably handle and I’m needing to upgrade to a private server (VPS) to take some of the load off.  So…yay.  Kind of what I feared would happen.  I was hoping that moving some of the site to Cloudflare would alleviate the issue, but apparently not.

Regardless, tonight is the NXT go-home show for Takeover, and there’s still assorted baseball going on, so chat about it here and hope for the best!
