In Your House 5, from December 1995. This has one of my all-time favorite matches, Bret Hart vs. Bulldog. This is an absolute sleeper match, maybe one of the greatest "most forgotten" matches of all time. Bret absolutely gushes after being busted open when Bulldog slams him into the ring steps. The pro-ECW Phily crowd ate it up. Bret and Davey put on an absolute clinic which nobody was expecting. Great, great match.

Watching some WCCW from 82 and what is the deal with 2 refs in the ring? Looks dumb as shit.

CHV Inside the Steel Cage. Nine matches-

Andre vs Studd (Andre slams him then does a Bombs Away from the top rope). I think this one was from ‘83. Andre still has long hair.

Andre vs Kamala (MLG, same ending as Studd. Friday was at ringside)

Snuka vs Muraco (MSG, everyone knows the ending here)

Bruno & Tito vs Adonis & Savage (Bruno can still go)

Bruno vs George Steele (early 70s film clip, Steele accompanied to ring by riot police)

Valentino vs Tito (Baltimore, Tito regains the IC belt, Valentine destroys the strap, great ending)

Bruno vs Piper (Boston, Piper brings out Super Bowl XX Bears posters to piss off the Patriots fan base and had “46” scribbled on the back of his shirt)

Bob Backlund vs Pat Patterson (holy crap this is a great one; the crowd was batshit insane for Backlund here)

Hogan vs Bundy (Wrestlemania 2)

Great stuff. One of the best CHVs ever.

WWFs Bloopers, Bleeps, and Bodyslams. The first ever Coliseum Home Video. So much political incorrectness here. This wouldn’t see the light of day in 2021. You want to hear Freddie Blassie suggest smacking around the wife if she gets out of line? Capt Lou say that women need to be barefoot and preggos? Salvatore Bellomo makes pizza, and Lord Alfred gets some powder on his nose. Vince says that’s not the first time he’s seen Alfred with powder on his nose. The entire Butcher Vachon wedding reception is on this one, and you feel like someone could do an 8-hour shoot interview on what the hell happened with that. WWF was very “gritty” for lack of a better term back then. Not quite as polished or homogenized yet.

Watched Hulkamania 1 yesterday - the 2nd ever CHV.

I won't run down all the matches, but they were heavily clipped but still entertaining. Hogan vs. Valentine from the Spectrum, Hogan vs. Studd from the Meadowlands, Hogan vs. Studd from the Kiel (with the tallest cage in the history of wrestling - literally looked 20-ft tall), Hogan vs. Dr. D from Minneapolis, and Hogan vs. Sheik (MSG title win). Hogan juices in three of the matches.


The takeaway here is how much Hogan's character back then was more like the AWA guy that everyone loved rather than the cartoon character he would morph into later when people started to turn on him. Hard to put your finger on it, but in interviews he's toned down a bit and more humble.


Lots of great stuff, they re-ran the TNT segment with the protein drink and python pack of vitamins. That MSG crowd was electric for the title win.

I think 84-85 period was Hogan's best work in the WWF  starting 86 or so he was becoming a cartoon.   

I would love to see more full matches of his from 84.

I watched a show from the Cap. Center labeled as June 27, 1981.



IC champ Muraco wrestles S.D. Jones. It was interesting because Jones got a lot of offense and controlled a lot of action with some mat wrestling. Muraco got a pin on a reversal of a move, but had to put his feet on the ropes to get the win.



I was surprised because I only know Jones and the Jobber to the Stars. Was he considered a legit challenger to Muraco's title? Was he pushed more in his early runs in the WWF?

SD Jones had his own LJN figure, so he must have meant something :)

I don't know if he was ever a serious title contender for the IC belt, but he teamed with Rocky Johnson and Tony Atlas quite a bit (even filled in when one of them was injured) and was always around the top of the card on Spectrum shows around '82/'83. I think he just kinda falls into that Mike Sharpe/Rene Goulet/Tony Garea group of guys that slid down the ladder as the expansion happened.

Bill Watts' major angles in Mid-South and UWF compiled here.  So many different personalities but all of them are spouting a Watts mindset.   There is a "Maid for a Day" angle where Missy Hyatt cleans Dark Journey's place and it appears neither filmed their portions together.   The continuity in editing is amazingly poor.   I didn't see a lot of this  much-hyped territory growing up but it doesn't age as well as I hoped it would.

That jungle is Jerry Jarrett's backyard according to Corny.



Krusher Darsow was inadvertently left out of the recap. He turned up as a heel doing a mountain man gimmick, wearing a plaid shirt with the sleeves cut off and really bad looking cutoff jean shorts with a rope belt. It was explained that he had been living a hermit lifestyle in Northern Minnesota, hunting, fishing, and living off the land. Apparently at some point he rejoined society because it was claimed on commentary that he had decided to come to Mid-South after seeing it on TV while working as a bar bouncer. It is hard to explain how bad his gear was. Becoming Krusher Khrushchev was a blessing for him.

Those cut off short shorts look like he just danced a shift at some gay bar then came to the TV Taping.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.



Darsow has told the story that back in Minnesota in those early 80s days, he was visiting Curt and Larry Hennig and mentioned he needed to get some new trunks.   Curt gave him a pair "Free of charge" and didn't mention they were taken out of Larry's dresser drawer.  I am pretty sure if you see Darsow wearing some dark trunks with side stripes, they are the ones Larry would wear in addition to his matching singlet.  After Larry discovered them missing, Curt ribbed his dad, and Darsow by extension, by saying Darsow must have swiped them, and probably pointed to them out on videotape at some point to further the rib.   Barry told the story a few years back at CAC with Larry in attendance and it got a great pop from the crowd, including The Axe.
