Greg Gagne, Jim Brunzell and Larry "The Ax" Hennig take questions from a raucous group of fans. Topics include: Tall tales from working in Japan, money today compared to the old days, Hennig roughing up Brunzell when he was a rookie, why Brunzell hates George Scott, behind the scenes of filming "The Wrestler", Bobby Heenan's drinking, the full and epic story of the night Mad Dog Vachon tried to leap from an airplane full of wrestlers, why Gagne quit wrestling, plus more tales of wrestling wars, failed territorial takeovers and more!

"Gagne had wars with Mad Dog Vachon. Verne told him to work stiff or else Vachon would eat him out."
lolololol
Of all the typos....

The WWF charges into MSG with a card featuring a triple main event of sorts as Andre the Giant collides with the mighty Ken Patera, JYD aligns with Jimmy Snuka to tangle with Roddy Piper and Bob Orton in a Texas Tornado tag team bout, plus Tito Santana grapples with IC champion Greg Valentine. The rest of the card is brutally bad as Bret Hart, Don Muraco, Blackjack Mulligan, the Spoiler, Big John Studd and others face lesser talents in uninspiring encounters.

I've been very slowly watching WWF on the Network starting at 1996. I'm up to King of the Ring 2000. The build-up to that PPV is some of the best wrestling television I've ever seen. There's so much going on. I love that everyone has more than one rival at a time, and that mid-carders and tag teams are able to get main event rub by proxy. No one comes off as being a jobber, the wins mean something and having the KotR tournament in the background keeps everything going so that they didn't throw out meaningless matches.

If they could combine that level of writing with the in-ring talent they have today, I'd be a very happy bunny.

Just curious, as I'm big into thorough re-watches lately.  How are you going about watching this? You talk about the buildup, so I'm assuming you're watching Raws and not just the PPVs.  Have you watched every Raw since 1996?
If so, that's incredible.  How long has that taken?

All the Smackdowns too. We didn't get Smackdown in the UK until much later. I cheat though, I skip through almost all the matches,so each show only takes 20-30 minutes. I have it on when I'm going through old-timey rassling results in online newspapers, so I'm not just sitting down watching it. The in-ring action for 2000 was pretty average at best for the most part.

Been watching some AAW from 2015. Just finished the United we stand show. I've never seen much of Kingston before but he came across like he legit hates everyone. Hero v Tomasso was far and away the match of the night.

I've been watching "The AWA Collection" on the Youtubes. They've got a pretty good TV run of 1984. Baron and Crusher just won the titles. Martel just won the belt. Ventura and Regal are battling the Fabulous Ones. Blackwell and Adnan are not getting along and Brody is about to debut.

There was an interesting match a few shows back that featured tag champs Jerry Blackwell and Ken Patera vs. Buck Zumhoff and Steve Olsonoski in a 2 out of three fall match.

Oddly, Zumhoff pinned Blackwell in the first fall. After that the Sheiks just brutalize their opponents. They injure Steve O out side the ring, and then beat the hell out of Buck, but get DQed for refusing to pin him.

It was a great match, but I don't remember ever seeing it before. Anyone ever seen this match? It was shocking to see Buck get the first fall.
