It’s the night after Survivor Series and that means it’s time for Team Orton to take over the show for the next four weeks. Assuming it’s not Randy Orton’s week to be in charge, you can all but guarantee the boss for the week getting a World Title shot against HHH. Then repeat that for two of the next three weeks. Let’s get to it.

What the World Was Watching: Slamboree ’95

The promo poster for this show is odd as it makes it seem like Ric Flair is the babyface since he is “seeking revenge.”

Eric Bischoff and Bobby Heenan are doing commentary and they are live from St. Petersburg, Florida.  Bischoff is substituting for Tony Schiavone who is on the shelf with neck surgery.

A video package hypes Harlem Heat, spliced with a generic promo of how they are going to beat the Nasty Boys tonight.

Taboo Tuesday 2004

Taboo Tuesday 2004
Date: October 19, 2004
Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Attendance: 3,500
Commentators: Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler

This is one of the more unique shows that WWE ever put together with the fans getting to pick the stipulations/participants/a few other things for the matches. This has presented a bit of a hard few weeks of TV as they don’t have specific matches to set up as everything has some kind of a twist included. Hopefully the finished product works a bit better. Oh and it’s on a Tuesday, which worked so well back in 1991 that they waited thirteen years to try it again. Let’s get to it.

We’re getting closer to Taboo Tuesday and that means the voting is going to become a factor. In other words, expect a lot of people asking for votes from fans on various topics, many of which are likely to be established in the coming weeks. Either way HHH will wind up looking awesome because that’s just what he does. Let’s get to it.

What the World Was Watching: WCW Main Event – May 7, 1995

Gene Okerlund and Bobby Heenan are in charge of the studio portion.  They argue over whether Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage really wanted Ric Flair back in WCW.

Heenan goes through a big stack of WCW trading cards and offers to trade a bunch of cards to get a Gordon Solie card, which he proceeds to toss casually over his shoulder.

It’s another big show this week with a double shot of huge. First up, we have the return of Roman Reigns, who will be making some sort of a major announcement. It’s the first time he’s been on television in months, having vacated the Universal Title in October due to leukemia. In addition to that, it’s Ric Flair’s 70th birthday and there is going to be a celebration, which of course means a lot of guest stars. Did I mention it’s Wrestlemania season? Let’s get to it.
