Feuds not on Closed Circuit/PPV

Throughout the 80s and early 90s, the WWF would often start feuds on tv strictly for the the travel circuit instead of CC/PPV. Are there any matches you wish were on PPV instead of the circuit?


Roddy Piper vs. Jimmy Snuka has to be a prime candidate

​They probably could have stretched it out to WM2 if Snuka wasn’t such a flake. The various combinations of Piper/Orton/Snuka/Tonga Kid were just burning up the houses. ​


Piper vs. Hogan one-on-one (there WCW feud doesn’t count)

​It was the main event of the Wrestling Classic, the first ever PPV. On the Network and everything. ​As for a big show like WM, maybe, but neither guy was gonna lie down for the other so I don’t know how effective it would have been.


Tito Santana vs. Rick Martel

​It was on SNME, but yeah, it really could have used a bigger blowoff like Summerslam 89. ​



Jake Roberts vs. Warrior

​This was supposed to be the match that headlined This Tuesday in Texas before Warrior left abruptly and Savage had to get called into duty. ​



Undertaker vs. Warrior

​Gah, no, those matches were atrocious. ​


Hogan vs. Paul Orndorff

​Perhaps, but in a very real way I think this match drew far more money without PPV than a match on PPV would have. You really did have the feeling here of wanting to go to the local show to see Hogan get his revenge. Plus you couldn’t do a real finish at the point when it would have been on PPV, so it would be something like the countout finish of the Hogan-Quake match anyway. ​

Big Bossman vs. Ted Dibiase

​This was the definition of a house show B main event. ​



Hercules vs. Ted Dibiase

​Only if PPV means "We pay you to watch this." ​
