Yeah, it was in a feature about Billy Kidman, but still. Gee, what a surprise we didn't see footage of Lesnar's Shooting Star Press.

I think the feature on the 1975 Flair/Valentine plane crash may have been the best thing (faint praise) in the history of the show that no one watches.



You're all so WONDERFUL. Why did they ever have to remove you from the continuity? You'd have made for MARVELOUS stories. You WILL make marvelous stories. And the FIRST story of the new world will be a story of REVENGE! -- The Psycho Pirate, Animal Man 23, May 1990.

I think the reason they're hyping Kidman's Shooting Star Press so much now is to make it THAT more impressive when Lesnar pulls it off.

If Lesnar breaks out his shooting star Kidman is out of a job. Lesner's shooting star is not some little flip in the corner. He does it with the victim laying in the center of the ring. How the hell could Kidman ever come out after that?

I just watched the first segment, as the sight of Flex made me turn off the TV. However, hell must have frozen over because not only was David Crockett shown on WWF/E TV, but he was actually interviewed. For a fan of the mid 80's NWA, that was a shock. I'm still surprised WCW never went into the plane crash in detail, as they would mention it over 20 years later and expect everyone to remember it occurring, when they easily could have produced a similar segment. And, this was another reason why I think Confidential/Velocity should have lengthy from the vault segments, as they had lots of late 70's-early 80's Flair clips in the segment. Come on, break out the Flair/Steamboat Mid-Atlantic matches from the 70's and early 80's. That would get most longtime fans to make sure they at least tape the show to get a hold of those matches.



I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

That Flair segment was one of the best Confidential segments ever.

I liked the epilogue after the segment. Sad.

Everything else on last night's Confidential was eh.

Shane Helms busting several dance moves in the Fozzy/Jericho segment warrants more than an "eh".

I didn't know Helms was going to be in the Fozzy segment. I thought it was just going to be about Jericho.

Am I the only one who noticed that when Flair was being interviewed at the old, old TBS studios '85 era clip (the building where as a kid watching wrestling could always be justified as learning the flags of different countries), the crowd of probably 35 people sounded louder than the recent WWF/E crowds?

Did they mention Tim "Mr. Wrestling" Woods being on the plane? I know they apparently didn't interview him. Woods, actually wrestled the next show after the plane crash to preserve kayfabe (His opponent, I believe Johnny Valentine, was one of the other occupants of the plane).

Yes. They even mentioned in the epilogue that Woods was scheduled to be interviewed for the piece, but passed away before they could interview him.

They didn't, however, tell the kayfabe story that Meltzer wrote about last week.

On the bright side, at least he'll be back in time for the Money in the Bank match at Wrestlemania. But on every other side, this sucks. Get well soon, Evan.
