NXT Arrival (2.27.14) review

Furious Flashbacks: NXT ArRIVAL   February 27 2014   I missed a fair chunk of wrestling. I basically took 2010-2013 off. 2014 is the year I got back into wrestling and it was mainly because of New Japan but it didn’t hurt that my mate Redje showed me the Cesaro vs. Sami Zayn match from… Continue Reading

ECW Hardcore TV 26 (10.5.93) review

ECW Hardcore TV 26   October 5 1993   With Heyman on board ECW TV started seeing some new faces and some new attitudes. It wasn’t a complete clear-out of the dregs of early ECW but the chance in attitude was palpable. Commentary here comes from Joey Styles and Paul Heyman, a drastic improvement over… Continue Reading

ECW Hardcore TV 24 (9.21.93) review

ECW Hardcore TV 24 (9.21.93) review

ECW Hardcore TV 24   I started off by watching the first episode of Hardcore TV and that was a mistake. Because in the beginning ECW was Tod Gordon and his booker was Eddie Gilbert. It was only really when Gordon had a falling out with Gilbert that ECW became the juggernaut its gone into… Continue Reading

WCW Thunder 11 (3.19.98) review

WCW Thunder 11   March 19 1998   There are eleven matches on this show. Eleven! It’s not even 90 minutes long. The longest match is 5.20. It’s an ideal ADD show.

WCW Thunder #10 (3.12.98) review

WCW Thunder #10   March 12 1998   So hey, I was supposed to be watching Smackdown but apparently I’ve developed ADD and gave up after the Nakamura/Rusev/R-Truth thing and decided to watch WCW Thunder instead! There are ten matches on this show and it’s barely 80 minutes long. I am fired up for that… Continue Reading

WCW Thunder #9 (3.5.98) review

WCW Thunder #9   March 5 1998   We’re in Columbus, Ohio and we are live, still. The early days of WCW Thunder, when the company still cared about it, are a special time. Harvard Lampoon named Randy Savage “Man of the Year” apparently. Hosts are Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan and “Stagger” Lee Marshall.  … Continue Reading
