HA! I remember that. It was the longest, most boring promo in professional wrestling history. Whenever I watch a WrestleMania VIII tape now, I also make sure to have that Fast-Forward button ready when they go up to Gene Okerlund on the stage, because I know what's coming next. And it ain't good.

I remember when I was 8, WrestleMania 8 was the first PPV I ordered live (The previous 7 I've had to rent cause I was "too young" to watch back in the day).

That LOD interview still pisses me off cause I watch WrestleMania 8 quite a bit still. It really is a crappy interview, and it was just weird to bring it out like that. I remember back then I had no idea who Paul Ellering was and Heenan was going "OH MY GOD, DO YOU KNOW WHO THAT IS?!" I'm like "Uhhhhhhh". Very confusing.

And to YAKUZAKICK, at it relates to your sig, chances are we were never going to see an Angle Slam again anyway....well at least THAT one!

WM XVII was a slip-up by me. My rationale, though, is that Rock & Austin were both faces....Austin left WrestleMania as a face...but turned full-blown heel the next night on RAW. I think it was the fastest turn after a title win I've ever seen.



The Chase Is On:
8th: Oilers [29-23-8-8] 74pts; 14 games left
14th: Flames [23-31-10-4] 60pts; 14 games left
Flames must win 7 more games than the Oilers do to make playoffs
Any combination of 7 Oilers wins or Flames losses eliminates them from the playoffs

    Umm, WM III's attendance was actually 93,173. Which is the all time indoor attendance record for any event. Got that info off of http://www.ecwperth.com/commentaries/luke018.html

93,173 is the number that the WWF announced the attendance as being. A lot of people (including some in the business) still beleive that that number is legit. But, 78,000 is the real attendance figure.

Isn't that the one where the Hart Foundation attacked them during the playing of their national anthem and got a quick win? If that is the one i'm thinking of then I DO remember it.

Obviously the Hart Foundation had been studying tapes of Dynamite Kid's match vs. Nikolai Volkoff at The Wrestling Classic...

I'm almost certain that Tito did commentary at WrestleMania 13.

I believe also that Tito Santana has the WORST WRESTLEMANIA RECORD EVER...
I: Beat the Executioner, first Mania match EVER
II: Teamed with Junkyard Dog to lose to Terry & Dory Funk
III: Teamed with the British Bulldogs to lost to the Hart Foundation and "Dangerous" Danny Davis
IV: Teamed with Strike Force partner Rick Martel to lose the Tag Titles to Demolition
V: Teamed with Strike Force partner Rick Martel to lose to Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard
VI: Lost to the Barbarian
VII: Lost to the Mountie
VIII: Lost to Shawn Michaels
IX: Beat Papa Shango in the pre-Mania dark match

So, excluding the dark match, Santana was a HORRIBLE 1-7 at Mania. Sad, eh?

8th: Oilers [29-23-8-8] 74pts; 14 games left
14th: Flames [23-31-10-4] 60pts; 14 games left

The LOD interview at WrestleMania 8 was actually a surprise. The LOD hadn't been seen since mid-February 1992 when they dropped the belts to Money, Inc. The match wasn't shown on television, just recapped in a news segment. The LOD wasn't even mentioned on TV after that news segment...so everybody thought they had left the WWF. (Remember, this was before the Internet, when you had to wait a few weeks or months to get the dirt). The WWF essentially threw the Natural Disasters into the LOD's babyface role, and it seemed forced.

When it happened, I thought it was kind of cheesy to have a simple interview in the middle of Wrestlemania...but when the LOD came out, it made sense. The WWF had to get the LOD on the card somehow. At least to let the fans know that they were still around. ALOT of fans were upset with the LOD's "disappearance", so it was nice to see them make the comeback, with Ellering in tow. It also broke the unofficial "if it didn't happen in the WWF, it didn't happen" rule when Heenan acknowledged Paul Ellering. Oh, and for the record, Rocco was still several weeks away.

Wrestlemania 8 also had a Lex Luger interview during the intermission. Don't know if that was left on the video release. Lex talked to Gorilla and the Brain , via satellite from Atlanta, and announced that he was coming to the WBF (the World Bodybuilding Fed). This interview was also a slight shocker, because Luger had been on WCW TV just a few weeks earlier.

My guess is that they included the LOD in the WM plans too late. At the time, it wasn't exactly the WWF's MO to suddenly throw an extra match on a PPV with no advance promotion.
