Originally posted by JacksonAs long as we are digging up old stuff, I didn't think this warranted a thread but has anyone else been watching UWF on ESPN Classic? It comes at 1 o'clock in the morning but if you want to see some great old school talent caught in a train wreck set your DVRs.
Think of it as TNA 20 years ago.
Thanks for the heads-up! I'll DVR tonight's 2 episodes and check them out before I decide if they're worth adding to the daily DVR schedule.
All the shows I've seen appear to be completely out of order so don't expect much storyline continuity. Again, just like TNA! hahaha I slay me!
1991, Herb Abrams was owed money by Steve Ray and wrongly suspected that Ray was sleeping with his wife. On May 10, 1991 at a television taping in New York City, Abrams paid Steve Williams an extra $100 for the night to break Ray's nose during their match. The ensuing shoot aired in its entirety on an episode of Fury Hour
I really want to see this. Dr. Death seemed to be the only one that was putting out any effort and he was just serving up massive plates of squash. The added destruction amplified by that extra Benjamin must have been apocalyptic.
I finally watched some UWF ON ESPNC the other night, and the TNA comparison is a valid one: lots of former WWFers, lots of mentions of said ex-WWFer's accomplishments in the industry with no mention of where these accomplishments were... accomplished, lots of veiled mentions of "other federations", lots of promos cut with people telling me how great what I'm watching is, etc.
The show was not only 80's bad, it was bad bad too.
$45? On DIRECTV it was $39.95. Wrestlemania is the only PPV I buy, anyway (now that they've killed KoTR, the fuckers), so it's worth it to spring. I thought tonight's show was worth every penny, shitty booking aside. The in-ring action was superb.
