While reading your review of the spectrum show from 88 today, I took note of Macho Man’s blue tights which I had never seen previously. I started down a rabbit hole of checking out old house shows on the network and found a house show from summer 86 at the Boston Garden that had Macho wearing red boots.
I can’t ever recall Savage wearing anything other than yellow or white boots while wearing trunks. Are there any other crazy combinations he pulled out? Side note, if we’re talking just his trunks phase? What’s your all time favorite look for Macho Man? I always thought his Wrestlemania 5 look was such a let down compared to Wrestlemania 3 & 4. His Summerslam look in 1989 that year was bad ass though!
and Ric Flair watching the Rangers win the Stanley Cup. Both Eddie and Liz had a column on it from their perspective.
I’m not sure how many are out there, who was the first and when it blew up, but these individual accounts of wrestler x performing are my daily dose of laughter in this wacky world.
I gotta ask it Scott. With The Undertaker talking about how Hogan lied about his neck injury in 91…Are we gearing up for Hogan vs Taker in the Boneyard?
Maffew’s ECW posts have shows featuring plain old boring Vance Archer in his 30s, before he became chokeslamming/water spitting/making kids cry Murderhawk Lance Archer in his 40s.
My question is are there any other wrestlers who had a career peak in their 40s/50s whilst being low/mid tier in their 20s/30s? The only others I can think of are PCO and maybe Suzuki. Mr Brodie Lee potentially as well I guess?
Hope all is well.
Here is a question that I don’t think was ever asked.
Let’s say Vince did sell, what do you think the number would be? Ufc was sold for 4 billion. I am assuming they go higher than that correct?
