NWK reviews Hog Wild 1996

Going into the PPV: My thoughts I've always been enthralled by the concept of Hog Wild (AKA: The Pay Per View that generated zero gate because Eric Bischoff gave negative f*cks) Just a bunch of wrestlers perfoming for a bunch of drunk bikers in an outdoor arena, so who can deny that the atmosphere ...

Re: BRM Reviews TNA Lockdown 2014

that's where they (TNA) ruin it and ECW (and nWo era WCW) didn't necessarily. TNA almost always comes up with that convoluted bs explanation while in ECW and nWo the explanation was always clear; it worked better for ECW bc you could win by DQ, so that bs ending never really came up. WCW kinda suck...

Re: NWK reviews ECW Wrestlepalooza

My point still stands. Who has referred to a Moonsault as a "Press" since its invention? Therefore not many people would automatically associate a press with a Moonsault.

1. Oh, this is Wrestlepalooza 98; there's a Wrestlepalooza 97, too, you should check that one out. 2. I've gotta be a mark here for one of my fav wrestlers: Sabu NEVER hits 'poetry in motion;' he hits 'Air Sabu,' which he was doing long before Jeff Hardy was doing anything (he tore his arm open try...

Re: BRM Reviews TNA Lockdown 2014

In watching all the old wrestling matches as I've done for the past three days, I cannot understand what WCW/TNA's fascination was with overbooking, It would be one thing if all the potholes in afformentioned booking were answered for, but it just seems like the more people overbook, the more logica...

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Bragging Rights 2009

Bragging Rights would've been a cool concept in early/mid 2000s, but by this point the brand thing was on its last leg anyway. Yeah. They actually could have used this to push a return of the brand rivalry if they wanted to. the inclusion of an ECW brand in 2006 was the closest they ever came to le...

why did you even do this to yourself? I avoid every WCW ppv from 99 on; there are a few in 98 that are worth something but after that the PPV;s are almost total trash, despite the talent involved I figured a PPV with Sting/Bret and the potential of Bret/Benoit would be great, it's just that the oth...
