Long-time fan…the discussion about five-star matches made me think of one of my all-time favorites: Mr. Perfect Curt Henning. Am I right in thinking he never had a five-star singles match during any of his WWF/WCW runs? Mind-boggling considering he's one
of the greatest technical wrestlers ever IMO and the talent he had to work with (Bret, Shawn, Flair, Benoit , Eddie). I'd say he ranks up there with Dibiase as the #1 also-ran. Why do you think that was?
As always, keep up the excellent work…
For what it’s worth, I loved the Mid-Atlantic reviews. I guess you need more people to justify doing them, but I dug it. I’d be down for any reviews of NWA Worldwide from the mid-80s, which I loved as a kid.
Good morning Scott,
We all keep wondering about the lack of creatively and disappointing
booking from WWE… but what if the McMahon family are starting to feel the effects
of CTE? I was originally joking when I brought this up with friends but I’m starting to
wonder if the majority stockholders of WWE are starting to slowly lose their
minds from repeated concussions? You know they all have taken big bumps outside
of Linda. Wouldn't this explain things just a little bit?
Shane is clearly suffering long-term damage from his career, and that's not even being facetious. He can't remember promos and constantly messes up spots in his matches. And that's not even counting the fact that he nearly has a heart attack doing his own ring entrance. It's crystal clear he should be nowhere near a ring, which is why the current push is all the more sad.
Worst wrestler to achieve a 5 star match and best wrestler to never have a 5 star match?
If we're including WarGames then there's a whole host of answers, including Sid Vicious and Ray Traylor. If we're only talking singles matches, then probably Scott Hall or Davey Boy Smith (or at least Davey in that stage of his life).
AEW is releasing Fyter Fest for free, and probably eagerly waiting for Vince to do something like this that would alienate the whole audience, fan base and wrestlers.
We survived Vince as champion, but if they do pull on the trigger on Shane, then that's gonna be an all-timer up there with Vince Russo and David Arquette's reigns.
on David Von Erich's ranch were also mentioned.
Hour 1: 2.380 million
Hour 2: 2.086 million
Hour 3: 1.909 million
Average: 2.125 million
Lowest non-holiday viewership ever, compared to the previous record with 2.16 million at the end of April.
It’s WAY up there. There’s been a couple of TLC main events that would compete but this is a trifecta of blah. There’s not even interesting women’s title matches.
