Nitro has all the top faces AWOL, while RAW has Gold Dust's debut and a pretty good Owen/Razor match with a shocking ending!

Hogan vs. Big John Studd!
Tito Santana vs. Greg Valentine!
Sarge vs. Volkoff!
Afa vs. Dick Murdoch in a match that is either fantastic (my review) or minus two stars (Scott Keith's).
Plus David Sammartino, Mad Dog Vachon and bad promos from Johnny Valiant and Ken Patera!

I've been working on"the world's greatest cage matches."  My wife bought this one for me as a surprise when it first came out.  I must've forgot I had it because I watched disc one right away, and I've been working on disc two and three.

some of these 2000s matches aren't much to be desired and they seem to have superstars in back to back matches??  Good variety!  LOLz


Since this DVD, I've moved on to the best of Saturday Night's Main Event.  I'm relegated to my meager collection, which is almost all WWE commercial DVDs with a few Classics on Demand thrown in.

I've watched the best of SNME many times, but I just can't get enough of the Vince and Ventura commentating tandem.  So excellent.  I'm almost through this one, and I think I might go for the Top 100 Moments of Smackdown next.

That battle royal from March '87 is a really fun watch and so beautifully booked.

Totally agree.  Even the cheese of the Mega Powers impoding and Hulk and Warrior's confrontation.  Pile on the cheese, but it worked so well.

This past Sunday I spent most of the day watching the network at a friend's place. Great American Bash 88 followed by SummerSlam 88 and an MSG show from 84.

Bunkhouse Stampede 88

How does a PPV with The Four Horsemen, Dusty Rhodes, The Midnight Express, The Road Warriors, Nikita Koloff, Lex Luger, Barry Windham manage to be a big bore? Even a steel cage battle royal can't save this debacle.
After covering the PPV, I offer some fantasy booking ideas to improve this mess.

The NWA puts on a solid night of action with the first major bout between Lex Luger and Ric Flair. Friendship explodes as Dusty Rhodes clashes with Barry Windham. The Fantastics and The Midnight Express try and steal the show with another great exhibition in tag team excellence. A 10 man tag man triple decker cage match is a spectacle if nothing else. And the event kicks off with Sting and Nikita Koloff battling the Horsemen in a battle of attrition.

I do my best to add the backstory to each match to better improve your appreciation for why each contest was signed.

Re: the Sting/Nikita Horsemen match. My cousin had taped this show off satellite for me, and I remember that match like it was yesterday. Nikita, with a brushcut that looked terrible compared to his bald headed look, was making a comeback on Arn. Arn had him in an arm lock and Nikita was slowly gaining strength, with the crowd firmly behind him. He finally gets up, looks Arn in the face (with Nikita's tongue out, and Arn with a petrified look on his face), throws Arn into the ropes and then bends down to give Arn a back drop. Arn comes off the ropes and at the last second, out of the blue, gives Nikita a DDT. The crowd, and myself, erupted in shock and excitement.

That desription likely didnt do it justice.

I travel back to 1985 to watch the Dream Team battle Ricky Steamboat and Tito Santana, and the "blow off" of Hogan vs. Mr. Wonderful's first feud. Then we head to 1991 for "Rowdy" Roddy Piper taking aim at the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, The Road Warriors vs.The Natural Disasters and THE BERZERKER steals the show!

I hadn't moved to that Smackdown DVD as I posted early.  I actually went to the "best of Clash of the Champions."  I didn't realize I didn't watch all three discs when I first got it.  I was also craving something that wasn't WWE.  Really entertain stuff here.  I still think Schiavone was a great a commentator.

I'm thinking I might buy the best of Nitro vol one and two at some point.  This might keep me entertained in a non-WWE way for a while.

My thing is I miss the weekly shows, and I've never been one to over induldge with collections or what not.  I've seen some of the stuff people have for 'best of' and the like, but really the amount I get in a WWE release seems to please me.  that is until I can get the WWE network.

Starcade 88

Flair tries to fend off Lex Luger a second time over capturing the World title, Dusty and Sting take the measure of the Road Warriors, Barry Windham tries to survive the massive Bam Bam Bigelow, The Midnight Express battles...The Midnight Express!?!!? And Rick Steiner enjoys the biggest win of his career...so far.

I recently watched the 50th anniversary 3 disc WWE set.
Mostly disc 1, up until the late eighties, then I fell asleep!! LOL

after waking up.....

Discs 2 and 3 have specific PPV matchups and I just skimmed over them.
The Vince vs. Trump hair match was on there (Umaga vs. Bobby Lashly).

I thought the storyline of the Florida Title was that Rotunda 'gave' the belt to Steiner to 'defend', but Rick actually lost/misplaced it to further his rep as an idiot?

I think Rick had the Florida belt right up to Starrcade '88, not that it was defended often.
