Well, you might look at this on your schedule tonight, and wonder what matches they will actually show. The New York station showed the show this afternoon, so I can answer you: none of them. And I don't mean they didn't show any matches in full; I mean they didn't show even any excerpts of substance. This show is 100% pure video packages, nothing more. They show you a video package of the events leading up to the match, and then they show you a video package of the match itself. So you get to see the big moments, but at no point do they stop the music and let you watch even a small part of the match in real time.

Furthermore, there doesn't seem to be any substantial new content, either. I'm not sure if the quickie clips of some of the wrestlers talking about Austin during the Hall of Fame segment are new, but there certainly aren't any interviews or anything to give the after-the-event perspective.

Basically, this is contractual obligation filler, as close to content-free as it can be. Don't waste your time.

Thankfully, I realized this two minutes in and turned it off. Glad I did/.

Can't really act surprised, since NBC did the same thing with last year's Wrestlemania special ... Meh, someone online mentioned that he actually preferred this method rather than watching the actual PPV; they cut out all the extraneous fluff/dead spots in the matches and just stuck to the highlights set to some kick-ass music (for example, the special did a fantastic job of hiding the fact that the HHH-Orton match was awful and the crowd was virtually silent throughout it ... they actually made it appear exciting, so kudos to them for that).

Santino continued his tradition of coming down to the ring, being ten times funnier and more interesting than the other guy, and then getting his ass beat. He said to Rey Rey "anyone who a wears a mask eesa either incredibly ugly, incredibly stupid or...eesa the batman!" Man, if this guy could only wrestle he'd be King Korn Karn by now. Homeslice doesn't even have a finisher. -- Matt Fowler

Wasn't Flair supposed to be on Off the Record last week. I haven't seen any reports of that floating around and I was expecting Landsberg to GRILL him on the Bret issue.
