Monday Night Raw
Date: April 28, 2003
Location: FleetCenter, Boston, Massachusetts
Commentators: Jonathan Coachman, Jerry Lawler

It’s the night after Backlash and that means it’s time to start the build towards Kevin Nash vs. HHH, which will be built off a combination of Nash and HHH’s long and storied off screen friendship as well as HHH pinning Nash last night at the pay per view. Somehow, that’s as good as it’s getting at the moment. Let’s get to it.

Location: Worcester Centrum, Worcester, Massachusetts
Attendance: 10,000
Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz, Jonathan Coachman, Jerry Lawler

If WWE held the least important pay per view in recent memory, does it matter in the slightest? This is a glorified Raw pay per view with a handful of Smackdown matches thrown in to fill out the card. It’s a really bad time for WWE at the moment and I don’t remember looking forward to a pay per view less than this one in a long time. Let’s get to it.

Location: Phillips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
Commentators: Jonathan Coachman, Jerry Lawler

It’s the go home show for Backlash and we have a major main event for a change. This week will see HHH defending the Raw World Title against Booker T. in a Wrestlemania rematch, but there’s something a bit bigger to cover. Tonight is also the second Rock Concert as Rock is ready to deal with Bill Goldberg this coming Sunday. Let’s get to it.

Rock Star Gary reflects on WCW-NJPW Supershow ’91

Live from Tokyo, Japan

Airdate: March 21, 1991

Attendance:  55,000

Since I watched this on NJPW World and know approximately three words in Japanese, this ought to be interesting. Also, this was dubbed “Starrcade ’91 in Tokyo Dome” so if the real Starrcade ’91 sucks, WCW didn’t recruit enough Japanese wrestlers.

Commentators: Jonathan Coachman, Jerry Lawler

We’re less than two weeks away from Backlash and we have the bigger stories already set up. Last week saw the return of Kevin Nash for reasons of general stupidity, along with more of Eric Bischoff being evil for preventing Steve Austin from wrecking his neck and back even worse. Let’s get to it.

NWA World Championship Wrestling, October 25, 1986

Tragedy strikes as Magnum T.A. suffers career-ending injuries in a car wreck, forever changing the future of the NWA. Plus, one of the most legendary Four Horsemen beatdowns ever, one of the most shocking turns in JCP history, and the Road Warriors issue a dangerous challenge to Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express…

Monday Night Raw
Date: March 24, 2003
Location: ARCO Arena, Sacramento, California
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

It’s the go home show for Wrestlemania but more importantly we’ll be seeing the first ever Rock Concert with Rock giving us a performance for the ages. Other than that though it’s time for the final push towards Seattle, which likely means we won’t be seeing a lot of wrestling around here for the sake of avoiding a last minute injury. Let’s get to it.

We’re less than two weeks away from Wrestlemania and….yeah I’m not really caring that much yet. The show just isn’t looking interesting and I’m not sure how much tonight is going to help. This week’s big attraction is Steve Austin vs. Eric Bischoff II for no apparent reason, though a lack of logic has never stopped WWE before. Let’s get to it.

NWA World Championship Wrestling, October 18, 1986

The debate about Magnum T.A.’s scheduled opponent at Starrcade ’86 is finally put to rest.

Plus, Dusty Rhodes gets revenge on Tully Blanchard in a major way, Rick Rude gets welcomed to JCP the hard way, and the Army loses a soldier.

The hype for the NWA’s biggest card of the year begins in earnest on an eventful edition of the Saturday night staple…
