After hearing Tony and Conrad talk about Halloween havoc 90 a few weeks ago I started watching tv from around that time (power hour, main event, SN and Pro) and have been entertained, I forgot how much I liked WCW in this period. I watched the first 2 matches of clash 12 last night and looking forward to finishing it tonight.

Brad Armstrong as the Candyman with candy canes on his boots.

Candy man and tim Horner beat the M/E by DQ

Bob Holly submitting to Flairs figure 4

Some Sid squashes

A Vader squash

A RnR v M/E match

Bob caudle on SN commentary.

The black scorpion challenging Sting

Some good stuff

I really enjoyed the Halloween Havoc '90 episode and have been meaning to go back and watch that stuff too. I know the Steiners/Nastys match on the show is very good....just havent seen it in 20 years.

I watched a little bit more of Clash 12 last night.

The women's match was brutal.

Rich beat bill Irwin, I always like to see rich get a win

The Steiners vs Madimum Overdrive was a squash but I thought M.O. Looked good. The match had a good tempo and both were laying in some stiff shots.

I've been watching WWF tv from around summerslam 95. They had an interesting roster around that time. Jean Pierre, Waylon Mercy, Man Mountain, Hakushi, Rad Radford, savio, Skip, HHH, Isaac and then the usuals. It's too bad Shawn and Diesel ran Jean Pierre out he was entertaining.

I'm probably biasis because I am a Douglas fan but I thought the dean Douglas persona was entertaining. His matches with Razor and the Kid were good as was his part in their feud.

Bam Bam and Godwinn v the million dollar corp has been entertaining so far on superstars and the Horowitz / Hakushi v Skip and Redford match was good.

Overall superstars has been a good show for the 4 weeks I have watched. Raw has been bogged down a little with the president Gorilla announcements and boardroom coverage from the triple header main event fall out. I feel like when possible they should have saved those announcements for Challenge / Action Zone or Mania and just churned out a condensed version for the other shows whenever possible. It probably would have helped the Action Zone since it was a one match show for the most part. It could made it feel different than the rest of the shows.

The roof top Raw intro was cool, I liked that new intro a lot
