Couldn’t do this one last night, because Daredevil is a thing that exists. Sorry.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone, and hopefully you all had fun doing your drinking yesterday. I however am on high-dose antibiotics to combat my bladder infection, so needless to say booze wasn’t on the menu. I mean, mixing booze and drugs? Who am I, Kerry Von Erich?
TO THE NEWSMOBILE!
Uh oh, what wacky shenanigans is Kerry Von Erich going to get into this week? Stay tuned to find out!
If anything. I mean, I haven’t actually read the issue yet. But I’m just assuming.
Oh yeah, also, some shows happened a week before this issue and we’ll be talking about them.
It’s Von Erich Mania on the blog today! Hopefully Kerry did something stupid this week so we can carry on the theme. I’m thinking chances are good.
Is it me or does this Wrestlemania season feel like a flashback as it is?
Hoo boy. I’m actually writing this Monday morning instead of my goal of Saturday night because I was suddenly hit with a bladder infection, and you do NOT want that on your plate. Now I know how Tom Hanks in the Green Mile felt like.
This week: A discussion of commissions in wrestling. Sounds thrilling.
Should be a major news dump this week after Dave’s road trip to Chicago.
All sorts of stuff going on this week in history. But most importantly, did Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat manage to pull out enough smoke and mirrors to trick people into thinking it was a good match? Let’s find out.
Warning: Massive spoiler ahead. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I feel like Wrestlemania V would have been way more effective if they had held Hulk Hogan off TV for weeks leading up to the show, you know, to make sure people didn’t boo him. Seems logical to me!
To 1989 we go, with one of the most awesome real life storyline swerves ever!
Even though you’re reading this on Monday morning, it’s being written on Sunday night, so we’re looking back on the past by looking back on the past. IT’S SO META.
To the Observer!
It’s Sunday morning. Coffee is wonderful. It’s not looking good for the AWA though, guys.
To the Observer!
What better way to kick off a wild and crazy weekend than 25 year old wrestling news? To the Meltzer-mobile!
Dave skipped the 1/9 issue to work on the Observer Yearbook, so we jump ahead in time two whole weeks, into the world of the future. In the past.
