Well, WWE.com's Match Jukebox continues to be well worth the $40 a year. New to the Jukebox this month:
--Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels in their epic battle at WrestleMania 21. Maybe this time, I'll catch the tap-out... in real-time, I was distracted for just a moment.
--Shawn Michaels and Diesel compete for HBK's WWF Championship in a No Holds Barred match on 4/28/96.
--The 1996 War Games match, pitting the nWo team of Hollywood Hogan, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and "Sting" against Lex Luger, Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and the real Sting. Sting came out and beat the hell out of the nWo, but then stopped and walked out on his teammates, who hadn't believed him when he insisted that he wasn't a traitor. This would eventually lead to the "You can stick it!" speech by Sting, and the birth of the darker, rafter-sitting Stinger.
--The Steiner Brothers vs. Doom in a WCW World Tag Team Title match in 1990. The Steiners put their belts on the line against Doom's masks.
--The Outsiders vs. Ric Flair and Chris Benoit in a tag-team match in 1997.
--Arn Anderson's famous retirement speech, in which he gives his spot in the Four Horsemen to Curt Hennig (who would later betray them at War Games and join the nWo). Also included is the return of the Horsemen about a year and a half later.
--A brutal U.S. Title match between Goldberg and Sid, in which Goldberg beat the hell out of Sid so badly, causing him to lose so much blood, that the referee eventually stopped the match.
And for those of you who like the particuarly old-school, there's an Andre the Giant/Gorilla Monsoon match from 1977, two matches from 1986 including an AWA match, and one match from 1988.
I'll tell ya, Match Jukebox certainly isn't providing me with any motivation to go out, do stuff and be active.
