This time, the misspelling is deliberate. Not as a rib on BigDaddyLoco, but as a meme.

I just watched the opening contest of WCW's Clash of the Champions XII, which ended up being the Fabulous Freebirds vs. the Southern Boys. Both teams flying Confederate colors! Wacky. I loved how they showed the Freebirds' entrance video. Match itself was pretty good, too.

More Legends House. There's something about the show that appeals to me, I suppose.

Highlights of late 1993 Raw include Jeff Jarrett stumbling on his line in a pre-tape promo and them apparently not bothering with a retake, and Diesel (or, if you're the onscreen graphic, "Deisel") winning a squash match with a punch.

I watched Clash of the Champions XXXIV in its entirety. Good event. Malenko beat Ultimo Dragon for the Cruiserweight Title; Chris Jericho competed in a lucha libre trios match; Benoit and Sullivan had a brutal Falls Count Anywhere match. Scott Steiner returned from injury, teaming with Rick to beat the Amazing French-Canadians. Luger beat Scott Hall by DQ in the main event.

Good event.

I'm now sitting down to watch WCW Starrcade '93, the one in which Flair beat Vader for the World Title. Say what you will about WCW, they at least understood what the word "anniversary" means! (I'm looking at YOU, WrestleMania 25.)

Tony Schiavone: "Welcome to Starrcade '93! It's the eleventh one! It's the tenth anniversary!"

Some thoughts on Starrcade '93:

--Regal vs. Steamboat for the Television Title was a good technical-wrestling match. Regal stalled, forcing a time-limit draw.

--Cactus Jack came out to "Mr. Bang-Bang"! And he did a fantastic spot in his tag-team match: His partner, Maxx Payne, whipped him off the ropes and then backdropped him onto the floor, where Foley hit a legdrop on a standing opponent. WICKED!

--And after that, Dustin Rhodes gets DQed in the first fall of his 2/3 falls match for throwing Austin over the top rope. All I ask is that you be consistent with your bullshit!

--The mother of all shitty DQs, though, was during the Nasty Boys v. Sting/Road Warrior Hawk match for the Nastys' World Tag Team Championship. Some genius decided that The Nasty Boys should get 28 minutes to wrestle-- and then have the match end in a disqualification! Seriously?!

You're not suggesting that throwing your PARTNER over the top rope should be a DQ? An argument could be made that you'd be disqualifying the offender AND the offended.

(I mean, sure, it was a bad rule in general, but I think it did live within a sort of logic.)

They do get funky with the rule on occasion. I watched an event about a month ago where someone went over the top rope, but they deemed it unintentional so there way no DQ. My guess is the participants forgot about the rule and the ref and announcers were left to cover it up. This example sort of fails because I can't remember the specifics, so yeah, there's that.

I have been trying to stick to my pattern of watching pay per views from whatever month we are in, in the order they happened. So in the last week or so I watched a May In Your House (A Cold Day in Hell), Wrestlewar '92, and Slamboree '93. Old pay perviews are great to leave on the background when doing stuff around the house. I also watch NXT weekly, but not when it actually streams.

I did break pattern when I was home sick yesterday and wanted to start on the Clash of the Champions and watched the first two back to back. I had seen the Flair/Sting draw on DVDs before, but never the whole card. The second Clash (Miami Mayhem) was decent, but I was surprised that Flair's only appearance was on a yacht signing a contact with Luger? Odd. It was also weird seeing the Bushwhackers as the heel Sheepherders. I knew of them being heels before WWF, but having started watching NWA/WCW in late '89 when we got cable I had never seen it myself. I hated them as a kid, but it would have been cool to see them as vicious heels in the WWF at one point or another. Those Clashes also make me wish Windham would have gotten to be abigger deal than he was.

Next up I will probalby try to squeak in one more May WWF pay per view, so whatever was in May of '98.

I just looked up the WWE's May 1998 PPV and it looks like a pretty good double main event at least. The Nation (Owen, D'Lo and Kama) vs. DX (Triple H, Billy, Road Dogg) and Austin vs. Dude Love for the title.

WCW's Slamboree 1998 might be even better though, highlighted by a 13 man cruiser weight battle royale with Chris Jericho introducing the wrestlers. The winner (I won't spoil it in case you don't remember) faced Jericho immediately afterwards. There was also a Benoit vs. Finlay TV title match, Raven vs. DDP in bowery death match and Eddie vs. Ultimo Dragon. Saturn gave Goldberg his first interesting match also. The main event matches weren't as interesting, which is common for WCW PPVs.

Thanks! Slamboree does sound really good, but I think I will have to go with the WWE one since I watched part one of Austin/Love last month. Not being much of a PPV orderer outside of Wrestlemania it's cool to go back and see all these shows that I watched the build up to so long ago.

And I just remembered that Takeover is tonight so I might have to watch it live if time permits. It doesn't seem as intriguing of a card as Arrival was but I am still interested in it and want to support it by watching live (if that even matters to them).

Juat not enough time for all I want to watch!

This has my favorite sequence of matches on any PPV of my youth.

- Rick and Scott Steiner - at the height of their tag team powers - wreck a couple of Japanese dudes.

- War Games! Sting's Squadron (Sting, Barry Windham, Dustin Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat and Nikita Koloff) vs. The Dangerous Alliance (Steve Austin, Rick Rude, Arn Anderson, Bobby Eaton and Larry Zbyszko) (with Paul E. Dangerously and Madusa)

I'm actually in the middle of this right now, and there is a LOT of, well, crap, including the NOT Freebirds "Hayes/Garvin" coming out to NOT Badstreet USA to kickoff the PPV. Gross.

And Jim Ross and especially Jesse Ventura are FAAAAAAAAAANTASTIC on the call.

I stopped watching wrestling regularly after WM X8, but rather than go back and watch things from then on (some I've seen before, and some I know sucks) I dropped in at Fatal 4 Way 2010 because I knew the Nexus was a thing and I might as well start there. I've watched that show, MITB, SummerSlam, Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell so far. MY THOUGHTZ:

-I've hated Matt Striker on all the talking head things I've seen, and his commentary is pretty...unusual. He loves to tell you how many times the title has changed hands at this event or in that city. Who cares asshole. He also loves to say a body part has been "compromised." He's kind of ok though? He gets over the story of the match, or at least tries more than King and Cole, and he also referred to three heels as "rulebreakers."

-It's interesting to see Randy Orton and Sheamus...wait, no, it's BORING because they're BORING and they do the same BORING ASS CRAP today. Why was Orton so crazy over at this time? Was it from kicking people in the head? What gives?

-People were into the Miz at this time, right? It seems like in spite of being obnoxious, stupid and awful he was booked well and effective enough. So I guess that explains why one day I looked on the internet and this dumbo was the WWE Champion!

-Speaking of Miz, I've seen stuff from the horribly awful Michael-Cole-is-a-heel era, but his boner for the Miz is kind of amusing.

-Probably the best match I've seen doing this thus far is one of the ones involving Bryan and the Miz or the six-pack match from NotC. I don't love MitB matches generally, so.

-Why was Bret Hart in that match at SummerSlam? He looked old and he forgot the rules of wrestling!

-So, tell me, did I pick a dumbass spot to pick up watching this crap? Would I have been better off with a time before Chris Benoit murdered his family, or after CM Punk stopped getting slapped in the stomach by the Big Show?

I watched the Best Debuts episode of WWE Countdown and it was stupid. But there was a part where Tyson Kidd was talking about how much he loved debut vignettes when he was a kid(d), and he said “I remember, y’know, seeing a thing that said, like, ‘Kwang is coming,’ and I was, like, ‘Oh man. Kwang’s coming.’”

I had to spit out my soup because I would have otherwise choked and died. Then our very own CRZ made me this:



Also, I only saw it in animated gif form, but blushing smiling Renee Young not having an answer for why she was barefoot was adorable. She's the best.

When you get a chance though, definitely watch that Cruiser Battle Royale. That and the title defense afterwards is good TV.

I had some time to kill after Raw tonight, so I put on a WWE Old School program. It was the 3/17/75 MSG event (10 days after I was born).

It was interesting to watch, especially not having the glitz and glamour of what they have now. Talk about what they had then...cameramen taking pictures right at ringside, the MSG microphone coming down, Vince on the call, over 20 years before the Mr. McMahon persona, going solo.

The matches were Sammartino (during his mega-run with the title, which looked about 3 times smaller than the belt now)va. Arion for the WWWF title (yes, it was WWWF then), Strongbow/Butcher Vachon (Sometimes the former was Chief, but the graphic said "Indian Jay Strongbow"), Putski/Wolfman, and Kowalski/Rivera. It was nice to see the teacher of many stars, including some guy named Triple H.

Now that everything is starting to slow down a bit, I'm ready to start watching some of these past shows. I'm really itching to watch Starrcade '83, when I do have the three hours.
