Finished the 6/20/88 Prime Time Wrestling tonight. This may have been one of the most important episodes of PTW in months. Saw three big debuts on this show: Big Bossman (First ever move by the way was a standing dropkick to start the match), The Rockers, and Brother Love. Also, they announced the Rick Martel injury, and they announced the Harley Race injury and the "search for a new king". In between all of that, another Rougeaus squash where they are acting like bigger dicks than last week, and Monsoon spent the entire show needling Bobby about the open contract Heenan signed, which set him up to wrestle Ultimate Warrior all week.
Fun shit.

Forgot two other angles from the above show-
The Hart Foundation fired Jimmy Hart.

And Greg Valentine ended Billy Graham's career as a manager with the figure four.

Just watched the Backlund/Snuka MSG cage match for the 3,242 time. The perfect match for the era. I was there live and could tell you first hand that the internet fable that the crowd was overwhelmingly for Superfly was complete bullshit. The tape proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Just like I remembered it, when Backlund walked out of that cage the crowd lost its shit.

I've been in the process over the last 2 weeks of consolidating all my videos onto a few larger external Hard Drives. I'm down to my last area, which is Mid South. So I started watching some matches from 1982, JYD and Mr Olympia vs Ted Dibiase and Matt Borne, and a Bob Roop vs Ted Dibiase Match.

Just searched for this on Youtube and watched it per your recommendation.  Not sure I've ever seen it before.  It was awesome.  Nice little match with an epic ending.  
The thing I like about matches from this era...there weren't 50 bullshit false finish spots.  This one in particular builds to a quick crescendo and boom, it's over.  Not a lot of bullshit.  One epic spot, and then the finish.

Other than a handful of Four Horsemen studio matches and the odd NWA Philly show, this myth that heels were cheered pre 1990s usually turns out to be unfounded once you watch the video.  If there's a smattering of boos for the babyface, that's a lot, and over time it turns into a John Cena 50/50 thing.  But it just never happened, not with Backlund and not with anyone else.  Backlund wasn't AS over as Bruno in some cities, but that just means the cheers for him weren't as loud, not that he was actually being booed to the point that you can hear it on the tape.

Funny, I pulled out my "Bloodbath" DVD last weekend and watched that very same match.  I agree that while Snuka was majorly over with the crowd, Backlund was overwhelmingly the babyface.  My god, though, by next year's Muraco match Snuka was insanely over as a babyface.  That crowd worshiped him.

Hi folks. I'm new to the board, didn't see a place for intros yet, but thought I'd hop in here. My son pays for a WWE Network subscription so I decided to go back and watch all the old WCW PPVs this year. I just started this weekend with the 1983 Starrcade. Makes me realize how much I miss those days when the matches were amazing and the crowds were into the action in the ring instead of trying to get themselves over.

Funny the Snuka-Backlund cage match was one I thought "every" wrestling fan that followed it closely enough to post on a board had seen many, many times. Shows what I know.

I've seen Snuka/Muraco countless times (Muraco falls through door, Snuka goes berzerk and brings him back in, Snuka splashes him from top of cage and lays belt over his bloody carcass), but not Snuka/Backlund.

Welcome to the board!  Yes, those good old days and the way they went about them are missed by many.

Currently watching Starrcade 1984. Tully Blanchard vs Ricky Steamboat. Good stuff!!

Thanks for the welcome! I grew up on the border of GA/SC so I was at the matches 3-4 times a weeks from 1977 or so until late 1984. Every week in Augusta, GA and Columbia, SC. I feel so fortunate to have been around back then.

And for the record, I'm an old LADY. LOL...folks always think I'm a guy, but nope...surprise!! ;)

Watching Bockwinkel vs Lawler. The interviews were so much better than now.Larry Z being upset Bockwinkel being handed belt was good too.
