Wrestling Observer Flashback–10.30.89

Who else is with me on getting Robert from 60 Days In to sign with WWE as the greatest heel manager of all time?  Vince can stick him into a Hell in a Cell match with Undertaker and he’ll be like “I call it Meditation in a Cell!” and people will want him to DIE.  No wonder Smackdown is getting its ass kicked by that show on Thursdays.

“Oh hey, we’re really enjoying 88 and 89, but we want to see what 85 is like!  You should totally go back and do that!”

“What?  You mean after 89 is done we’ll have to go back to yucky 85 for months?  Boo!”

I know you’re all going to roll your eyes with disgust, but I took a job offer from WhatCulture again because James Dixon is on board with them in an editorial role and he talked me into it.  Plus, like Mr. Krabs, I love money.  Anyway, I think I’m going to do an article like “The 10 strangest things I learned about 1989” so I can discuss stuff like Zubaz, Idiot Kerry Von Erich, Memphis Monsters and Eric Embry’s booking. 

Remember, no one’s forcing you to read slideshows.  So just shut up in advance, Yano.

To the Observer!

So it’s 9/11, back when that meant absolutely nothing.

As a housekeeping note, I’m going to start posting these in the afternoon instead of the morning to space out the website traffic a bit.  I tend to get all the action in the morning with the Daily Update and this stuff, and then it dies off for the rest of the day, so we’ll experiment a little bit and see what happens.
