Glow ,Did you watch this on Netflix ? It’s good. It’s a shame they didn’t get the original wrestling show too it’d be great to watch it after.
Hi MateI was wondering if there is a site anywhere which details where a ppv or wrestling programme tells that there isie A Tag Team Split Manager wrestler spilt Heel Turn Face Turn I database my DVDS and want to put a sidenote on my database etc
Wouldn't Culkin vs. Arquette be the game-changer WWE needs?!ᐧ
In light of the unreleased matches that looked like they were supposed to be on Coliseum Video but never got there, I wonder who chose which matches from TV Tapings would be for Superstars, Prime Time and Coliseum Video?
Was it Vince's decision? How were they chosen, was it just random parings to come up with the exclusive matches? Were guys happy to do them and did they get paid extra for the exclusive matches that weren't on Superstars or Challenge?
Also why didn't WCW ever pick up on this and do something of their own? Do you think this type of thing would be good today with Youtube or WWE Network, just have exclusive matches from the Raw and Smackdown shows that
wouldn't make TV?
It's been said that Bischoff and WCW had to load up Hogan's contract offer in 1994 with huge money and incentives to keep Vince from swooping in and matching. Let's say one of the parties gets cold feet at the last minute and either Vince matches or WCW rescinds/Hogan declines, how does 1994 and beyond play out for the two promotions? Does Hogan go right back in to the world title picture with Bret and Diesel? Does he eventually turn heel? Or would he have just end up in WCW eventually anyway since he would have been so miscast in the New Generation era?
Carrying on from the question about the Renegade, what’s the best example of a wrestler / character that started as a clear rip-off but went on to massive success of their own?
Demolition (from the Road Warriors)? Ric Flair (from Buddy Rogers)? Someone else?
After WM 8 and before he came back in Feb'93 was there any attempt by Vince to get Hogan back earlier? When he returned did he get a new deal or was he under the same deal from when he left after WM 8? Also after he
left again in July'93 after a European tour vs Yokozuna, were there any conversations about Hulk coming back either later in '93 or early '94 before he signed with WCW?
here was a story going around that Brock Lesnar was in line to play Drago's son in the movie Creed 2. The storyline is that Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, faces the son of the man who killed his father, with Dolph Lundgren back as Ivan Drago. The tease was Brock Lesnar playing Lundgren's son. I was told right now that is more a publicity stunt for the movie and no deal is in play at this point.
Scott,Reading through the Observers from Vince's "Do No Harm" rise in the mid 80's did anyone besides Crockett running the Clash against Mania IV ever try to use Vince's tactics against him? Vince would get Jerry Blackwell blocked for medical reasons, afoot the Illinois commission of the Kerry Von Erich situation, yet no one thought to pay off the Michigan/Indiana commissions on Andre the Giant's health before the Hogan matches in '87-88? Did they not think as underhanded as Vince, or another example of too cheap to truly fight?

Hi Scott, I'm reading stuff from all sorts of years (your recap today from 86, the Observer recaps that up to 1994, some of Nick Temple's year-by-year recap books). I know we all like to say "because WCW" and I was a WWF-only kid, but I get the sense that were times when 80's/90's NWA/WCW was really firing on all cylinders. If I wanted to go back and see the best year, what year would you pick?
When Flair came in in 1991, was it always assumed at some point Herd would be out and he would go back to WCW? When he came in, was he making the kind of money that guys like Hulk, Macho Man and Warrior were? What was his relationship like with Vince, and
did he have any say in his creative during his time there? Do you think WWF ever regretted letting him go back to WCW with the run he had after he came back?
Been torturing myself watching the last year of WCW and a few questions so far.
1. Why isn't thunder on the network? it seems they really tried to make that show important to follow story lines stating in 99
2. What was the deal with Savage returning form a long hiatus to interfere in a battle royal and never heard from again?
3. Whats up with the sporadic appearances of Bret Hart getting involved? was their a chance of him returning to the ring or was it a case of using up contract dates?
I'm only in May so i've got a little less than a year to go, but i'm sue i'll have more questions
