Mike Reviews Every WWF Summer Slam Main Event Final Part (2014 to 2019)

Hello You!

After six weeks and a lot of matches we have finally reached the end of the Summer Slam reviews. I’ve been able to watch a lot of great wrestling along the way and there’s some more really good action for me to close on today.

Next week I’ll slog through WCW Road Wild (thankfully it won’t take that long) and after that I’ll either move on to WWF Unforgiven or might take a break from these for a bit until we get to Halloween Havoc/Survivor Series season. We’ll see.

Thank You if you’ve enjoyed this trip down Summer Slam memory lane. Now, let’s turn that corner onto the straight and head for the finishing line!

Mike Reviews Every WWF Summer Slam Main Event Part Five (2008 to 2013)

Hello You!

We continue on with WWE’s traditional biggest event of the summer. Summer Slam was always my favourite WWE show during my younger days and I would excitedly look forward to it through the years.

I’m going to break this one up a bit into roughly something like 6 parts, so by the time we reach the end we should be in August and I’ll then leave myself some time to cover WCW Road Wild (Shudder)

Along the way we’re going to see some great matches and some…not quite as good to put it nicely. Regardless I hope we all have fun together!

This week it’s 2008 to 2013

Mike Reviews: ECW Heatwave 2000 (16/07/2000)

Hello You!

ECW have done a decent 6 weeks or so of hype for this show so I’m actually looking forward to it. Hopefully the show delivers. There are certainly some matches here that have the potential for being good provided they get enough time and everyone’s performances are on point.

Let’s see whether ECW’s big event of the summer will be a sizzling success or a blasé burnout.

Hello You!

Time for some more ECW, as we are 8 days out from Heatwave 2000 in Los Angeles

Last week we had some good matches up and down the show, with a strong Steve Corino Vs Kid Kash Main Event. The bar has certainly been raised for this week now!

Let’s see what ECW has in store for us as we watch some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews: WWF’s Funniest Moments

Hello You!

Something tells me the name of this tape is writing a cheque that the WWF isn’t going to be able to cash, but we’ll give them a chance to live up to it.

So, are you ready to laugh?!

I SAID ARE YOU READY TO LAUGH?!?!

Well let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!!!

Mike Reviews Every WWF Summer Slam Main Event Part One (1988 to 1992)

Mike Reviews: ROH Glory By Honour (05/10/2002)

Hello You!

Time for some more ROH, as we look at the penultimate 2002 event that I have in my collection.

I believe Scott has actually reviewed this one as well, so you can see how his scores match up to mine. I’ve not read his take on the show for a while, but I remember enjoying it at the time. I won’t read it before writing my own, just in case it leads me to give similar takes.

This time out we’ve got a pretty famous fight (and yes, “fight” is the appropriate term) between Samoa Joe and Low Ki.

Let’s see how the rest of the show holds up 18 years later (Man I’m old!)

Mike Reviews Every WCW Beach Blast and Bash at the Beach Main Event

(This one has been pending for nearly a week, which was before everything kicked off on the UK wrestling scene. Obviously I stand with the victims, some of whom I actually know personally, and remain horrified by every new story that comes out)

Hello You!

We’ve got Summer Slam on the horizon and that one is probably going to take over a month to get covered, so I’m doing a bumper edition review for all of the Beach Blast and Bash at the Beach shows.

Bash at the Beach is notable for the frankly ridiculous amount of tag matches that it has in Main Event slots. Indeed, all but three of the Main Events here are tag bouts. I’d like to say that this would be a good review for fans of tag wrestling as a result, but when you see some of these tag team combinations you might choose to disagree.

For the first two years of its existence this event was called Beach Blast, which is a name I prefer actually, but they went with a new name in 1994 and it stuck for the rest of company’s lifetime.

Let’s all grab our inflatables and suntan lotion as we head to the sand and sea for some wrestling action!

Mike Reviews: ECW Hardcore TV #373 – 17/06/2000

Hello You!

More Hardcore TV for ya’ll

Last week Paul Heyman vented his spleen for the world to see, and it probably didn’t help with getting him or ECW into TNN’s good graces. Let’s see if there’s any fall out for that this week.

Time for some chuffing wrestling!

Mike Reviews ROH Unscripted (21/09/2002)

Hello You!

Back with some more ROH. Sadly I couldn’t find Honour Invades Boston (Though I’m sure I have it or have had it in the past) so it’s on to Unscripted next. This has quite a famous and often debated moment in it when it comes to classic ROH.

ROH will be crowning their first ever Tag Champs tonight, so there should hopefully be some really good action on display!

Mike Reviews Every WWF King of the Ring Main Event (1998 to 2002)

Hello You!

Let’s finish off these King of the Ring reviews. I’m not especially looking forward to this part, mainly because I don’t have particularly fond memories of KOTR as an event during the Attitude Era. Anyone who has had to live through the fresh heck that was KOTR 1999 will know what I mean.

However, there’s at least one match on the docket today that I remember being decent, so hopefully it is and I’ve not just imagined it.

Let’s watch some chuffing wrestling!
