SMACK'EM WHACK'EM 
- Lord Al hosts with the Bushwackers. This ends in his Lordship's untimely death. Uh, Spoiler alert. 
- The Hitman and HBK have an excellent ladder match
- Bret Hart facing Ric Flair proves to be a letdown as two of the best ever cannot gel in the ring.
- KAMALA works a much different, but somehow better match with Hart.  Yeah, probably not a popular opinion.
- We spend 10 minutes watching Yokozuna eat.  That is not a metaphor.
 - Crush and the Berzerker fulfil our daily requirement of HOSS.
 - Earthquake and the Repo Man have a pointless, terrible little match. 
- The Undertaker does his best zombie monster act as he battles Razor Ramon in a rare encounter between the two stars.

WWF at the Boston Garden 9/7/85 
 
- Lanny Poffo offers new tricks on wrestling physics 
- Cpl. Kirschner defends America against the evil forces of the Swamp People. 
- King Kong Bundy cosplays as Dracula. 
- Gorilla Monsoon finally finds a wrestler who can apply a proper abdominal stretch! 
- Monsoon always offers up why women are inferior athletes
- Haku makes an uninspired debut 
- A rather terrible card if your looking for competitive bouts as Hogan defending against Bundy is far and away the most notable encounter 
- Greg Valentine has to try and do the wrestling for 5 other guys in the co-main event as he is saddled with old guys and Beefcake.

THE ULTIMATE WAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRIOOOR! (1992)

- A look at the Hogan/Warrior classic and how it holds up after nearly 30 years of changes in the biz. 
- A reminder of what the match meant to fans at the time. 
- We then skip ahead to Warrior's return in 1992 as we see him battle Papa Shango in singles and tag team action. 
- Shango proves that even in defeat it is always good to dress for success. 
- Sadly the tape skips Shango's spells on the Warrior that drew such RECORD BUSINESS.
- We also see Warrior beat up the Nasty Boyz, Skinner and the Berzerker. 
- John Nord steals the show with his bumping. 
- At least the tape is only an hour. Sigh. (Augh?)

This looks like a horrible show; Baltimore getting the B show certainly won that night.

Another one of my favorite tapes growing up. not a stellar line up but hearing Lord Al call some of the action and seeing the Hart title change always made me smile.

This one was great, one of my all-time favorite CHV Tapes.

Making my slow crawl through mid 80s Crockett. Have watched every ep of the Saturday Night show from Oct 85 up to June ‘87. Just finished the June 6, 1987 show. The Freebirds are now there. Dark Journey is Tully’s personal assistant. Flair is feuding with Jimmy Garcia over Precious. Rude left last week without dropping the tag belts, so they made Ivan Koloff a tag champ with Manny and announced Rude was “injured”. Then Manny left, so they just gave the belts to the RnR. The New Breed is friggin’ awesome. Luger is juiced to the gills and challenging Nikita for the US title. Tony and David are now acknowledging the “UWF”. They showed a clip from UWF tv where Murdoch and Gilbert broke Steve Williams’ arm. Barry Windham made mention of winning the new “Western Heavyweight Title” and challenging Bubba for “his championship”. Jim Crockett announced that next week they will have more info on the new match set to debut at The Bash... “the Match Beyond”.

JCP was a lot of fun in the late spring and summer of 1987 due to all the UWF guys showing up and the build for the Bash tour. I think the creative downfall of the promotion, which was probably already in progress, really kicked in after the Bash. The UWF crew had already been marginalized by then. The build to the ill advised Ron Garvin NWA World Title reign had begun. A lot of the babyface crew, especially Dusty, was getting stale.

Yeah, I can really feel that sense staleness as I watch these episodes. It’s taken me 2-3 years to get through these with occasional breaks in between, but I’m getting tired of the same guys on tv. That’s why watching the New Breed here is so refreshing and Manny and Rude were a great team. The other funny thing is just how over Flair and the Horsemen are in the studio. The announcers are chummy with them, the fans are cheering them. It’s hard not to like them even though they’re supposed to be the villains.

Didn’t JCP end up using some old footage of a non-title match between rock n rolls and manny and rude as the “title change”? 

Manny should have stayed as I’m sure the paydays in JCP were better then what he ended up with.

The New Breed are truly one of my favorite tag teams & kind of that great "what if" to me.

Yep, they showed a match from a number of weeks (months) back when the RnR beat them clean.  They pinned Manny with a roll-up.  Rude was in the match (so the mysterious injury announced the week before was forgotten, and Ivan Koloff was forgotten).  The weirdest part, or most obvious part, was after the victory the RnR were kind of hugging on the outside because they won, but it wasn't pants-dropping, stomping, yelling "title change" HOLY SHIT celebration, and the belts weren't given to them.  The whole thing was pretty sketchy.

With all of the Dusty finishes going on around that time one would think that they would have a good one laying around to pass off as the real thing.
