In honor of Hell In A Cell the other night.


I think we'll find that 'wrestling' has ripped off its fans many times. Gimmick matches where the 'ending' kind of spat in the face of the gimmick match in the first place. Loser leaves Town matches where nobody leaves, DQs in no-DQ matches, etc



Gimme Capital Combat 1990 - Flair vs Luger in a cage. Nobody gets in, nobody gets out. Supposedly. Ole Anderson gets control of the thing that lowered the cage onto the ring, and lifts up the cage for Horseman (Windham) interference.

Scaffold Match at GAB around 1991 with PN News. Gawd, it was sooo bad! I forget the ending, but it went miserably wrong. I think it had to do with a flag getting captured.

Yes it was announced last minute that there was a "Capture the Flag" stipulation added so nobody would have to take a bump off the scaffold. It was PN News and Bobby Eaton against Terry Taylor and Steve Austin.

The Texas Death Match at Halloween Havoc 93 between Vader and Cactus was awesome, but the way the rules were explained was stupid. After a pinfall there's a 30 second rest period THEN the person pinned has a count of 10 to reach their feet. IIRC Cactus was pinned on the ramp but Vader was also down so after the rest period ends the ref starts a 10 count for both? WTF? But before Jack can get to his feet Harley Race zaps him with a taser and Vader is declared the winner.

Randy Savage v Crush had something similar, a falls count anywhere match where after a fall you had 30 seconds to get into the ring. Which made zero sense at all.

Savage won after tying Crush's legs to something so, after a fall, Crush couldn't get up.

Notable that Crush pinned Savage after about 30 seconds with a backbreaker but it was next to the ring so Savage could get back in.

Thanks, DJP.
That was it.

The Hogan vs. Vader strap match at Uncensored 1995 comes to mind. Ric Flair, in drag mind you, does the job even though he wasn't a participant in the match. Classic WCW horseshit.

Not to mention there was a DQ in the Randy Savage vs Avalanche match.......after they kept hyping that the entire show was "unsanctioned" and there were no DQs.

Speaking of that, Hogan vs. Bockwinkel on I think the Super Sunday card. It was advertised as No DQ. Hogan pins him to win the AWA belt,, but Stanley Blackburn takes it away because he thinks he should be DQed for dumping Bockwinkel over the ropes moments earlier.

I never remember the Hogan vs. Bock match at Super Sunday being a no DQ match stipulation.

More WCW goodness..

GAB 89: Luger vs Steamboat for the U.S. title. It's either a No DQ or DQ rule waived stipulation (meaning the title can change hands on a DQ). Luger refuses to wrestle unless it's changed to a regular match. Instead of saying fuck you you're stripped of the belt and it's awarded to Steamboat, promoter Gary Juster concedes. Steamboat is DQed for using a chair. I think this also turned out to be his last match in the company until 91 due to a disagreement with Jim Herd over money.

SuperBrawl I: El Gigante vs Sid Vicious in a stretcher match. Sid could give a shit because he's on his way to Stamford. He does the job in a short 2 minute bullshit match. One Man Gang runs in after and Sid just walks away without going on the stretcher.

GAB 91. Rick Steiner goes over Arn and Paul E. in another short bullshit 2 minute cage match . Missy Hyatt was supposed to be Rick's partner, but I think there was an issue with the Commission not allowing her to participate in the match. So they did an angle where the Hardliners kidnapped her or something and Rick went out by himself.

There was one match where it was promoted as No DQ but they DQed Hogan anyway and took the belt away. I believe it was this show.

In Smoky Mountain there was a match between Candido and Ricky Morton, which had Morton's hair vs. Tammy's hair. I forget the exact turn of events, but Candido wound up getting his head shaved. Wore the Buddy Roberts headgear for 2 months and everything.

Didn’t Hogan once beat Vader in a strap match by dragging Flair dressed as a woman to all 4 turnbuckles, or was that just a fever dream?

Does the Sumo Monster Truck Challenge count when Hogan faced off with the Giant on the roof of Cobo Hall and then Giant fell off the roof to his tragic death.

..until he came back to life and won the World title from Hogan an hour later.
