http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/hulk-and-linda-hogan-gossip-and-scandal/

I recently stumbled upon some trash TV tabloid show covering Hulk Hogan's career and the scandals of his later years. The show was full of talking heads from the gossip world trying to talk about the history of our beloved wrestling. Within 5 minutes I was annoyed, but instead of shutting it off I decided to write a pithy review of the whole thing.  What followed was an hour of misused and mismatched photos helping tell a story that was at best at least partially fictional. I hope my pain lead to an amusing recap.

Coliseum Home Video presents the best of Demolition~! 
- Battles with Strike Force, the Hart Foundation, the Powers of Pain, the Bulldogs and others are shown. 
- We see Jim Neidhart show off his Lucha skill set. 
- Bobby Heenan adds to his resume of being a national treasure. 
- A rare Heel vs Heel match is among the offerings. 
- Barry Darsow is compared to Ricky Morton for perhaps the only time ever. 
- The Powers of Pain/Demolition double turn still baffles me 31 years later.

I’m slowly (trudging, if that’s a word) through early 1987 NWA.  Just some random musings.  I had forgotten how big this Ole face turn against the Horsemen was.  The crowd is into it, Ole’s interviews are super strong and convincing, and they’re running these beatdown angles every week.  Ole’s got a baseball bat now too.  In a way, he’s taken over as the top babyface in the promotion for at least a few weeks in April ‘87.  Here’s what I really had forgotten-  Tim Horner is getting a mega-push along with him as one of the “young lions”.  He’s helping Ole out . Really feels out of place knowing that Horner goes absolutely nowhere after this other than a UWF tag team run.  Ole is convincing on the mic though. “This old dog is getting near the end, but I’ve got one more run left in me, and I ain’t done yet!”

Ole tried to push Tim Horner in Atlanta too. Even having him pin Hawk. But he was so bland and gave terrible interviews. No one was buying it.

http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/from-the-wwe-network-rampage-91/

Rampage 91 features...
- Bobby Heenan golfing. Not since Dorf has golf been so entertaining! 
- John Tolos continues not to impress. 
- The best match at Summerslam 91 that did not happen. 
- A steroid addict meets a drug addict. The result is Valium in wrestling form. 
- Paul Roma. Ugh. 
- The Rockers have the match of the tape, to the surprise of no one. 
- Demolition Smash's sad last days in the grease paint. 
- Massive overbooking to protect THE BARBARIAN. 
- Haku chooses to spare the life of an unruly fan. 
- A rare heel vs heel tag match provides intrigue 
- Paul Bearer shows off his Ed Gein side. 
- Bearer also hints at his sexual kinks while watching Undertaker fight. 
- Sigh.

Growing up my local video store usually got all of the CHV’s and Turner videos but Rampage 91 was one that eluded my grasp until I started buying cassettes on eBay; Rampage 91 and Survivor Series 87 were 2 of my early bidding victories.

I mainly enjoyed this cassette for the golf course skits but the orient Express v Power and Glory match was fun as well.

http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/from-the-wwe-network-battle-at-the-royal-albert-hall/

The WWF puts on a show in the historic and beautiful Royal Albert Hall.
- Gorilla Monsoon continues to provide moments that justify his Observer awards for worst announcer. A part of me feels very dirty even writing that.
- The rule book changes on the fly.
- Earthquake tries stand up comedy
- The thin line between working smart and having a dull match is breached.
- The Undertaker prepares for mass homicides.
- The Bulldog seems uninspired, despite being the hero of the nation.
- We learn the medical science behind Zombie nut shots.
- A big final surprise ends the night on a high note at least.

I've been working through a big Freebirds comp. Towards the end of World Class they had all three birds and none of them as a team. Roberts was teaming with Iceman King Parsons, Gordy was tagging with one of the Simpson brothers, and Hayes was teaming with Kerry. Odd choice in my opinion with the past success they had as a unit.

I just binged watch the Edge and Christian show. Pretty good stuff, much better than their podcast. I like the trivia type segment in the middle of the show and the constant Tommy Dreamer burial is fun.

I guess you would have to argue they were stale, so a Freebird feud would at least be a fresh take. Roberts would find the SST to harass Hayes with, meanwhile Gordy was making big money in Japan. ----

- Bret Hart provides a fine example of how he would dog it in non-TV bouts
- A highlight reel showcases a botched finisher
- Undertaker finds an opponent who can match his speed. 
- A legend is mauled and it's AWESOME! 
- The whole This Tuesday in Texas is then shown:
- Skinner's finest hour
- Randy Savage and Jake the Snake provide a half hour of amazing promos, character work and how to do an extreme angle. 
- Virgil's flirtation with relevancy ends. 
- Hulk Hogan teaches us Texas slang
