Hey, having seen Buried Alive live about 6 years ago, I can vouch for the missing line on the tape. Goldust said he was going to go into the crowd and stick his tongue down everybody's throats. Ick... of course, at the time, I cheered guys like Goldust and Jeff Jarrett because they generally pissed off the crowd and I thought that was cool at the time.

Anyways, the show was pretty bad, and they shot some dark matches around it that I think ended up on the Coliseum Video version or something. I remember there was a Shawn Michaels/Goldust match after the Buried Alive match, and there were a couple of other matches beforehand, but that's about it.

Just some extra info I thought I'd share...

I rewound the tape about 6 or 7 times TRYING to hear what the hell Goldust was trying to say. I figured it was something along those lines but Vince was determined to talk over it and it worked.

If only he'd been on JR's headset at the time....

So Goldust pulled double duty at a PPV huh? I guess that shouldn't surprise me. A buddy of mine saw the WWF eons ago at the Bob Guertin Arena here in Hull when they were shooting some Colliseum Video stuff. (They got a Bret Hart / Shawn Michaels match out of the deal.) Anyway, he says he got a chance to see Rick Martel wrestle FOUR times that afternoon.

I imagine it was much the same way for the old RAW tapings as well...

9,649 heh. I was there as well and I couldn't imagine it being more than 6,000. There was plenty of black curtains behind us, hiding empty seats. Then again, that afternoon we were at the RCA Dome for a football game (Colts/Patriots) so it could have seemed small compared to that.

    Windahm and Bradsahw got twenty minutes? I saw them wrestle at the Allstate Arena just a few days before WM14 and all they did was punch, punch, punch, chop, chop, chop, Irish whip, repeat for five minutes before Bradshaw hit the lariat for the win. I'd hate to think how that match looked after twenty minutes.
