I just finished up the 2017 ROH global wars tour along with the tv episode from the weekend.

Overall it was a good series of shows.

I’m curious to see how the balance of the year plays out without as much NJPW involvement

The Omega main event was good but nothing amazing on its own. The bullet club involvement was the bulk of the crazy spots.

I enjoyed all of the multi man tag matches during the tour

Adam Page really shines throughout

The Cody contract signing and match with cheeseburger was entertaining

The Colt v Yano match was too much comedy; it seemed like the crowd even lost interest in it.

Finished the August ‘86 MSG WWF show.


The first half of the show:


Nick Kiniski d. Les Thornton with a release German duplex. Earlier Kiniski was on the mat and the ref started to count him down without Thornton covering, and Gorilla and Alfred are both like WTF? Are you serious? Learn the fucking rules.


Jake Roberts beat Sivi Afi. Gorilla said Jake looked lethargic (ie cocaine).


Herc and Billy Jack went to a 20 minute time limit draw. Surpringly good match with a lot of power shit back and forth. BJH wanted “five more minutes”. Herc entered, and BJH won eventually by countout. A rare time when they recognized the five extra minutes as official.


Orndorff has nuclear heat as he beat Corp Kitchener, entering to Real American.


The Machines debuted and lost to Bundy and Studd by DQ when Andre Machine came in (doing their version of the Masked Confusion). Eddie must have completely just stopped working out after he became Ax. In 83, he was muscular. Here, he still looks huge with upper body def and shoulders. Two years later, he looked like a fat out of shape guy in s and m costume.


Tony Atlas lost to Adonis. Atlas doing the bald gimmick here.


Sheik and Volkoff over Rotundo and a green-as-fuck Danny Spivey.


Pedro beats Savage by countout. Yes, amazing. Pretty decent match. Pedro had a little mini push here, and Alfred was talking up Pedro and Tito as a threat to the tag titles.


And the Bulldogs squash Hoss Funk and JJ Funk in a tag title match.


Decent show. Machines were pretty over.

A German Duplex? Fuck that; I’d rather be hit with a Canadian condo.

I binged a few more ROH tv episodes, the Elite show and night 1 of Survival of the fittest.

These shows arent as NJPW heavy but there is still plenty of bullet club representation.


They are pushing Shane Taylor pretty hard; he can be impressive but his Jack Victory body style makes it a little difficult for me to take him seriously.


Beer City Bruiser needs to go, I think it’s great ROH isn’t all about bodies but BC looks like the 3rd Nasty Boy.


Punishment Martinez is impressive, I look forward to seeing more of his matches


Cody v Rocky Romero was a good match; I was surprised to see the table spot and the thumbtacks.


Taven had funny match long exchange with a Hogan look a like in the crowd even doing a big boot / leg drop combo to egg him on. The crowd even busted out a Hogan chant.


The bully Ray farewell speech wasn’t my thing but the crowd seemed to like it.


Kenny King is a real bright spot on these shows; curious to see how the next couple of shows treat him.

Just started night 2 of survival of the fittest 2017 and I know spike Dudley was small but this cheeseburger guy looks ridiculous.

The Great American Bash 1985 is an underrated gem of a show that should be uploaded to the WWE Network pronto:
- Ric Flair battles Commies in a fierce main event that sees the fans nearly riot! 
- Dusty Rhodes clashes with Tully Blanchard inside a cage with money, titles, women, and fame all on the line
- The Boogie Woogie Man is remarkably over as he and Paul Jones continue their endless series of battles. 
- AWA tag team champions Hawk and Animal come to the NWA to challenge the communist champions from Russia. 
- Magnum TA faces a foe from outside of JCP's realm as Kamala brings his special brand of chaos to the ring 
- plus other action with the Andersons, Manny Fernandez, Abdullah the Butcher, Billy Graham, Buzz Sawyer and others!

So I’m watching the World Championship Wrestling Saturday Night show from 11-30-1985, just two days after Starrcade.  So this is filmed in advance and no mention of Starrcade results.  To fill time at the end of the show they showed the Dusty vs Tully match from Bash 85.  This also helped them promote their upcoming tv title tournament.  
Great coincidence that Arnold just posted about it.

One thing I never understood was lights out, unsanctioned bouts with a title on the line

Coliseum Home Video takes a look at the Hulkster in this 1989 release.
- Hogan battles Andre the Giant inside of a steel cage in front of a packed stadium in what was just about Andre's last stand as a top monster. Will the Frenchman destroy an American hero?
- Hulk defends America's pride against Nikolai Volkoff in the waning days of the cold war.
- A Monarchy is threatened as King Haku's aristocratic values are defaced by Hulkamania.
- We close with the Hulk's takedown of an oligarchy as The Million Dollar Man and a Giant confront Hogan in the wild west backdrop of Houston.

The link doesn't work tough guy! By the way in reference to the Hogan/Andre match at Wrestlefest '88 I was there. Don't know if there were 40 thousand people there but it was well attended. Heenan bumping all over for Hogan made that match memorable,  at least for me.

Been watching, among other things, some Independent handhelds the last few evenings. Vermont Wrestling Fed from 1992, Dino Bravo vs. richard Charland and The Barbarian vs. Jim Neidhart main events. Also some IWCCW with champion Tony Atlas vs. Greg Valentine and a very young Tommy Dreamer in a tag battle opposite the Brooklyn Brawler.
