The SmarK Rant for WWF Prime Time Wrestling – 04.06.87

(Originally written 11.12.20)

Since we’re in the 1987 area with Saturday Night’s Main Event lately, we might as well go back to Prime Time where I left off there, because GOD KNOWS I CAN’T GET ANY SUPERSTARS.  Not that I’m bitter.

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby Heenan

So we’re coming off this show you may have heard of before, called WRESTLEMANIA III.

(Hey all, Scott here.  I was at Star Wars last night until late and didn’t have time to prepare a new review, but here’s the next one in the Prime Time Wrestling 1987 lineup, which I actually did when it aired on WWE 24/7.  Unfortunately I was more paying attention to the matches rather than the studio banter at the point when I was writing these ones…)

Back to 1987 for the buildup to Wrestlemania III and a senses-shattering first appearance!  This is bigger than the debut of Dynamite and the moon landing PUT TOGETHER.  Like, if AEW Dynamite did a special show live from the moon.

Also, I’m gonna run into the 24/7 rants on this show right away and I kind of wanted to close the loop on the reviews anyway.

Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon & Bobby Heenan

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Wrestlemania III is coming up at the end of the month, and people are pretty excited about it. So this week, I think we will take a trip to the Andre training camp with Gorilla and I’m pretty sure this is gonna be awesome.

Yeah, back to the classic era of the show, since I left off back in 1987 with the February 2 ’87 show, building to WM3. I actually had most of the rest of 87 done from the 24/7 era, so this is mostly filling in gaps for that year. Plus this is a very appropriate episode given the latest Hall of Fame induction.

I dunno man, I’m just getting close to the end of the Network run of this show anyway, so we might as well keep pressing on because this is right in my wheelhouse as a fan at the time. With only four episodes left, I can always circle back to the 87 shows, which is where I left off when WWE 24/7 was ripped unceremoniously from me years ago.

Your hosts are Gorilla & Bobby, although Bobby is growing increasingly distant and shows up late this week. He’s unwilling to take any more abuse from Gorilla or “that Adolf Hitler lookalike” Mean Gene.

The new episode of the Mae Young Classic wasn’t up at the point when I had some time to write this morning, so instead we hit the WHEEL OF RANDOMNESS and let’s check out another episode of PTW from 1989, picking up after the weird episode with the No Holds Barred premiere that we covered weeks ago.

The SmarK Rant for Prime Time Wrestling – 06.05.89

As picked by winning commentator JosephM for correctly guessing that both myself and Meltzer gave Okada v. Omega 7 stars!

Your hosts are Gorilla & Bobby, coming from the premiere of “No Holds Barred”. This is apparently why he picked this particular episode.

Gorilla’s first whopper is that the movie “broke box office records everywhere” when it debuted the weekend previous. Bobby notes that the audience reminds of him when they show movies at San Quentin.
