Dee and I are back this week to talk about last week’s terrific (as always) NXT TakeOver: London WWE Network Special along with the Slammy Awards edition of Monday Night Raw that aired on 12/21/15 and also to reminisce about our earliest memories as wrestling fans, how this podcast came about and to talk about the excellent DVD set WWE just released, Owen: Hart of Gold. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll probably even read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!
Davey Boy Smith — we knew him as “the British Bulldog” — passed away while vacationing in British Columbia, Canada. He was 39 years old.
At present, no official cause of death is known, though published reports have suggested either a heart attack or an accidental choking death may be possibilities. In any case, what is certain is this: the wrestling world has lost another performer at far too young an age.
Ok, well here I am with my WrestleMania XI recap, for those who haven’t seen this show…and for those of you who have, this should be a fun read for ya. Well, on to the WrestleMania XI recap.
This one’s live, on tape from the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut on April 2, 1995. Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jerry “The King” Lawler. Your celebrity guests for this WrestleMania are: Pamela Anderson, Jonathon Taylor Thomas from Home Improvement, Jennifer McCarthy from MTV, Nicholas Turturro from NYPD Blue, with musical guests Salt n Pepa. Also on hand tonite is Lawrence Taylor & his All-Pro Team. Geez, this is starting to sound like an episode of SNL with all the introductions in the beginning!
Ok, well here I am with my WrestleMania XII recap, for those who haven’t seen this show. BTW, I also did a WrestleMania X recap just the other day, so if you missed that, it’s right here. Well, on to the WrestleMania XII recap. Also, in case you’re curious, I’m doing this cuz I feel WrestleMania Sunday is as much a holiday as Superbowl Sunday. So on that note….on with the PPV.
This one’s live, on tape from the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California on March 31, 1996. Your hosts are Vince McMahon & Jerry “The King” Lawler.
I’ve just finished watching my tape of WrestleMania X & have some comments I just felt I had to show with all of you, my lovely readers…
Where to start…well, let’s start with the beginning, the Bret & Owen Hart match. Don’t ask me about Little Richard doing America The Beautiful, cuz I gotz nothin to say about that…he’s not much better than Salt-N-Peppa the following year. What I wanted to emphasize here was that Owen beat Bret in a great wrestling match, something we really don’t see a whole lot anymore & I highly doubt we’ll see this year in the main event.
