So with the Canadian federal election done for another depressing cycle and Prime Minister Blackface somehow still in power while the entire Western half of the country voted for the other guy (as the kids say, EPIC FAIL for Andrew Scheer), what better way to soothe my cold, calculating Conservative black heart than by picking up Mid-South again? Especially now that the Network has added a giant batch of 1985 shows, picking up from where I sadly left off last time. Not that I have anything against 1982, but this is the good shit, pal.

Time for the antidote to Hell in a Cell…BILL WATTS.

Yeah, all the way back to where I originally left off with Bill Watts back in 1982. WHY NOT. Here’s where we left things back when I was originally at that point:

OK, we come to the end of the Mid-South content on the Network for now, and although I promised to go back to 1984 once I was done with this year…I dunno. These are pretty low-performing rants and I feel like it might be best to leave it alone for a while. Leave the field fallow for a season, if you will.

The Network 2.0 update is out, and thankfully the Windows 10 app is still working. For now. I am, however, willing to give the browser version a chance again because I’ve heard good things about it, should things go south for my beloved Windows app. Notably, all the new video is now presented in full 1080p, so it’ll look great on Baconman’s 192” 14K TV.

(Unfortunately the WWE Network was down on Saturday night when I went to do a rant for this morning, so we might as well carry on with Mid-South because I had already done the next episode, back when they first started adding the Watts footage to the Network in 2015.  I can only hope it’s still down on Sunday night for the PPV.)

Been waiting to get around to this one for a while now, but nothing like a lazy Sunday to catch up. I did actually start this one last week, but real life intervened and I had to stop and scrap it early on.

Taped from Skelly Stadium, in Tulsa OK, 07.28.85. Not sure on the gate but it looks pretty full. No commentary for this show.
