Been working on Wrestlemania 26 (2010) over the past few nights.  This is one of those shows I never got around to seeing.  Have to say, I'm enjoying the shit out of it.  
Some briefs thoughts-

This is a 4-hour show with nine matches.  For the big matches, the video recap and then entrances each take about 15 minutes, so you understand why it gets drawn out.  But this wasn't bad.  Sometimes you need a break to settle down.

Going back and watching something after a decade, I have to say the video recaps help a lot.  I know they're a pain in the ass in real time when you're invested in the product, but for someone who missed the leadup and the show, this helps out.

The one match I was really curious about was the Bret vs. Vince match.  This one really kinda died with this show and you don't hear about it or see it any more, almost like it's been removed from canon.  I thought this was really tough to watch.  Vince got nothing in.  It was designed to be a total ass kicking, but it was at somepoint painful to watch.


Punk vs. Mysterio was good.  Damn, Serena was cuter than I remember.

Edge vs. Jericho was really good.  


Cena vs. Bautista was really good, probably better than it should have been.


UT/Shawn, no comment needed right?

One last thing - after watching so much Crockett lately on tape, and even old WWF, one thing that I don't think WWE gets enough credit for in this era...clean finishes.  Shit is settled in the ring.  Sometimes the false finishes are overplayed, but I appreciate that it's settled without Dusty finish screwjob shit.  The big matches play out.  I have a new appreciation for that, especially after re-watching Mania 24 and Mania 25 last month.
Anyway, good shit.  I have Mania 27-29 on disc, so I might watch those one per week.
Been watching Prime Times from Spring of 1989.  Might review those later.

I binged a bunch of ROH and caught up to real time for the first time since about 2003. I usually watch ROH on a 4-6 month delay but now there won’t be another ROH show until June.

WWE Network has a bunch of Free stuff for non subscribers for a limited time. I watched the FCW Documentary yesterday. It was good. Seth Rollins is kinda a dick.

I watched the new program with Dennis Rodman talking about WCW.  Also, Prime Time Wrestling (1987), Saturday Night's Main Event (March 1987), Clash at the Champions (1995), Halloween Havoc (1995), etc.

No one has ever said anything to the contrary. And it’s so obvious and natural for him that he can only be successful as a heel, but WWE hasn’t figured that out.

And to prove it so, CM still sucks his dick (putts him over). Ask Finn Balor or Sting what they REALLY think of this prick.

Everything from 1982.

Jimmy Valliant wins the Caddy in Toronto.

DiBiase turns on JYD.

Butch Reed pins Flair after the 30 minute time limit runs out and Flair asks for 5 extra minutes.

Hogan & Andre team to beat the entire Heenan Family.

Stevens Piledrives Snuka on the concrete.

Funks beat up the Briscos.

Rookie manager Jim Cornette costs Dutch Mantel the belt vs. Lawler & is fired.

Brett Sawyer vs. Ali Hasaan (or what ever his fucking name is) Billy Jack is introduced.

JJ Dillion is hiding the fact that the Iron Sheik is from Iran, but it's been exposed.

Started at WM and have been watching all the PPVs and Saturday Night's Main Event (and The Main Event) shows from WWE. I've just finished SummerSlam 88. I think I'd seen all the PPVs before, but never the Main Event shows. Interesting to compare to today. The in-ring wrestling ranges from horrible to reasonable, with only a few standouts, but everyone seems to have a place and a character. I think the managers helped with that. People just slotted right in while the managers carried a lot of the feuds. It's funny when you think people complain that guys like Cedric Alexander isn't getting the push he deserves, when he is so bland, a good wrestler in a sea of good wrestlers. I don't think fans in 1987 were campaigning for Sam Houston to get a bigger push, yet they are pretty much equivalents.

Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully this is available in Canada too.
