Went to the Show in Hollywood Sunday. Had a great time. I really hope the action we saw live translates well to TV as everyone showed up with their working boots on. Before the show I got to talk to Famous B and Willie Mack very quick. Really cool guys. The funny thing about most of the Hollywood guys is they are soooo small. I mean I am 6'1" and weigh about 200 and I'm bigger (just not in shape at all) than everyone but Navajo Warrior and Colt Cabana. After the show I talked to Colt again who signed the shirt I bought from him last time so I have the NWA World Heavyweight Champ's sig on it!!! Also got to have a long talk with Allison Danger who was there with Ares and baby Kendall. Danger was so nice even though I was there to see Portia and Buggy which we ribbed each other for. She hooked me up with some old school Shimmer DVD's and Autographed my Chickfight 5 DVD cover & an 8x10 of hers. Talked to alot of the other guys after the show too including KAOS and A Double.
The show had the usual cast of characters including the never ending fued between Austin and Scorpio Sky, Lots of tag team stuff, a Wold Title match and 3 womens matches! Danger and Candace against Buggy and Davina, Danger and Portia, and Buggy and Candace. Most of the action was realy fast and flying and they must have taped at least 3 if not 4 episodes as there were losts of matches and it went nearly 4 hours. Good times in LA!
Even when it was poorly managed in the mid-90's they still kept a fairly tight budget. It wasn't until late Bischoff and Russo where they started trying to compete production-wise with WWF without setting up all the revenue streams that WWF had.
