Yep, in Chicago for the early August '87 show, he was special enforcer ref for Hogan vs. Savage (this was right before Savage turned face).  
My dad took me to five shows that year that all drew ok numbers, maybe 8,000 +/-.  March was Hogan v. Herc right before Mania III, Hogan vs. HTM in June, Steamboat v. Savage cage return in May.
The Savage Hogan match was sold out.  It was a Saturday night show.  People had been drinking in the parking lot all day.  Super hot day.  Felt like a rock concert.  Just a weird vibe where it didn't feel like a sporting event anymore and felt like Woodstock or something.

I’m watching Wrestlemania 27 right now on blu ray.
About halfway through it. This Michael Cole heel bullshit might be the biggest change the channel awful angle ever. The Lawler/Cole match is on now. Cole just fucking sucks the life out of this show. A couple of good matches so far with Edge vs Del Rio and Punk vs Orton, and Rock playing a subtle heel is interesting, but fuck Michael Cole and his tats and Varsity Club getup.

350 Days- a documentary on the Tubi channel about life on the road of professional wrestlers. Featured Bret Hart, Lanny Poffo, Ted Dibiase amongst many others. I thought it was pretty good.

Trudging through the 2011 WWE HOF show. Some nice speeches at the beginning from Bob Armstrong and Hacksaw Duggan. Sitting through the uncomfortable as fuck Sunny induction now . She keeps licking her lips after every sentence. Like she can’t keep them moist. Some kind of characteristic of drug use?

Those HOF shows have some of the most replay value for me, I always enjoy them.  Judging by the pictures I've seen, I'm under the assumption Sunny lost a ton of weight prior to this.  Who knows what kind of "supplements" she was using prior to or around this time.  Nothing would surprise me lol.

She looked good. She got herself into shape, but you could tell through her words and mannerisms that she was an emotional wreck. She was sort of begging for another run with the company at the end of the speech and thanked her boyfriend who was in the front row.

Abdullah had a super short speech after Sunny. First time I believe he ever spoke on camera.

In North America, maybe. He did speak on camera in Japan during his runs there.

He even had a babyface run in Puerto Rico where he sang and danced briefly.  I'd love o see footage of this, but I only heard about it.

I can’t get this out of my head watching these shows, Linda is in the front row each time and seems polite enough, but you know she’s just like “get me the fuck out of here”. It’s the same way I feel watching Mania 4 or Mania 5 now and seeing Trump and Ivonka in the front row. I’m sure sitting through that 4-hour Wrestlemania 4 show didn’t help their already shitty marriage. In fact I think Ivonka got up and bolted about halfway through WM5.

Probably wouldn’t have the time to sit through these any other time, but I’m catching up on dvds and Blu-rays that I thought I wouldn’t be able to watch until retirement.

I've been watching the Legends Of Mid-South Wrestling DVD. First time I've watched it since 2013 when I bought it. No documentary, which sucks but they still have short interviews sprinkled in. Hacksaw Duggan when he could work, Shawn Michaels vs. Ted DiBiase, Andre, Warrior and Sting, green as grass managed by Eddie Gilbert, RnRs vs. Midnights, Ric Flair vs. Ted DiBiase in their famous match, the Freebirds. A lot of great stuff. Bill Watts is probably my favorite wrestling promoter of all time.

I watched the Steamboat & Youngblood vs. Slaughter & Kernodle feud. Great stuff.

I didn't have cable back then, so watching Bill Watts era WCW that's available on the network

Not this. He brought in Gordy and Williams and WCW already had the Steiners, Windham and Rhodes, etc. so there were some killer tag matches, but everything else was a mess. Banning off the top rope moves was the stupidest thing ever.
