What the World Was Watching: WWF Superstars – November 18, 1995

A great movie-style preview of Goldust opens the show with Todd Pettengill narrating.  Goldust says that he is ready for his close up and that has finally arrived on Superstars.  Pettengill also says that they will show us the shocking footage of the 1-2-3 Kid’s heel turn on RAW.

Vince McMahon, Jerry Lawler, and Jim Ross are calling the action and they are concluding the tapings in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.

A Couple Questions

Why in your opinion has Tony Schiavone not been inducted into the hall of fame?  And, if he ever does get in, will Conrad be the guy to induct him?

Also once Roman Reigns invents time traveling technology by basically spearing himself, do you think Reigns would have been the guy to overtake Hogan in the 80's causing wrestling to never have a slow peak? 

Also I was watching Uncensored 95 the other day and Hogan pinned Flair in a strap match against Vader. Is that legal? How do I protest this finish 23 years later? Do you think this keeps Flair up at night and what was caused his problems with alcohol? 
Dude, time traveling Samoans?  Are you TRYING to implode the timelines?  He'd end up being his own uncle and then I'd have to update all my flash cards.  It's be a fucking nightmare.  

New Book: KB’s NXT The Full Sail Years Volume III: From Dallas To New Orleans

What more is there to say about NXT? The promotion, which started off as nothing more than a developmental territory to build up some of WWE’s stars, has taken on a life of its own. There have been more classic matches, more stars made and more great moments there than anywhere else in recent wrestling memory.

In this book, I’ll be breaking down over one hundred more episodes of NXT plus ten live specials, ranging from the first show after Takeover: Dallas through Takeover: New Orleans. I’ll also be breaking each one down match by match and segment by segment. Included will be analysis and ratings for the shows to see what worked and what didn’t.

The book runs about 450 pages and is available on Amazon both in a physical paperback for $11.99 or an e-book format (which has ALSO been updated) for $2.99. In case you don’t have a Kindle, there are plenty of FREE apps you can get from Amazon for pretty much any electronic device, all of which are available at this link.

You can pick up the book from Amazon here in paperback and here as an e-book.

And From the UK Amazon here in paperback and here as an e-book.

Or if you’re in another country with its own Amazon page, just search “KB WWE Championship” and it should be the first thing to come up.

Also you can still get any of my previous books on the Intercontinental Championship, Monday Night Raw from 1997, 1998, 2001 and the first half of 2014, Monday Nitro from 1995-1999, In Your House, Summerslam, Starrcade, ECW Pay Per Views, Royal Rumble, Saturday Night’s Main Event, the WWF and WCW pay per views from 1998, Wrestlemania, WWE Grab Bag and Clash of the Champions at my author’s page here.

I hope you like it and shoot me any questions you might have.

Went back to read your Spring Stampede 2000 review (

It didn't fill me with optimism…

Amazingly, there were lots of people online at the time who 100% bought into the reboot as the thing that was going to save WCW.

One More Question

Do you think when they finally give in and let Brock face Bryan, will Brock shoot snap on Bryan and break in half and then MURDER him because he smells the fear of death on him? How will WWE handle the future of Brie and their kid? Will they give them a life time pension? 

As long as the funeral is reasonably priced. Pensions don't come cheap, pal!
