What the World Was Watching: WWF Superstars – December 2, 1995

Vince McMahon, Mr. Perfect, and Jim Ross are calling today’s action, which is taped from Salisbury, Maryland.

Marty Jannetty gives Razor Ramon a leather jacket backstage and asks for Ramon’s help against the 1-2-3 Kid.  Ramon agrees to the idea and agrees to watch Jannetty’s back as long as Jannetty watches his in the weeks ahead.  It seems like this angle ran behind their television storylines as McMahon already told fans on RAW that Ramon and Jannetty would be facing Sid and the Kid at In Your House.

NWA World Championship Wrestling, January 4, 1986

Welcome to the start of an incredible year of wrestling action for Jim Crockett Promotions. 1985 was very good. 1986, for the most, part, was even better. This is the high point of the Crockett territory, with a roster full of hall of famers and should-be hall of famers. It’s also the year the Four Horsemen take over for the first time. As a wrestling fan of almost 40 years, I would match JCP’s 1986 up against any era from any territory. It’s one of the best ever in terms of angles and in-ring action. The first 10 months of it, at least.

This show is a big one…

RIP “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel

http://wate.com/2015/06/22/knoxville-wrestler-buddy-landel-dies-at-53/

Sadly, one of my favorite mid card guys from through the years, and a man I had the privilege to know for a while has passed away at 53.   RIP “Nature Boy”.
The words of Buddy when JYD passed away, ring true for him today:

 I just got a call and heard you were gone, and I stand here so cold.And the booker says you’re off to your biggest angle ever, walking on streets of gold.We first met when I was a kid, and I remember being in such awe!You were the first superstar I ever met, the first I ever saw.You drew more money than most people know, but how they soon forget!But in my eyes, I saw it first hand and man, you were legit!Just like you did when we first met, you took me under your wing.And it comforts me now that you, Dick, Frank and Eddie are listening to the angels sing.I’ll see you again in that special place, and I can give you a ring.So once again save me a place under your great big wing!I’ll miss you and always love you… Good-bye dear friend…
