Holy shit, Vince McMahon continues to earn my money somehow with WWE 24/7 Online!

This month's new matches:

WWF Championship Iron Man Match
WrestleMania XII

Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels

Oh, yeah. That's right.

World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match
Survivor Series 2002

Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Rob Van Dam vs. Kane vs. Chris Jericho vs. Booker T

Hair vs. Hair Match
Judgment Day 2002

Edge vs. Kurt Angle

I remember when the sight of a bald Kurt Angle was bizarre. Now seeing him before this match in archive footage seems bizarre! (Oops, did I spoil the ending?)

WWE Tag Team Championship Match
Judgment Day 2003

Team Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero and Tajiri

Judgment Day 2004
The Dudley Boyz vs. Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam

This is surprisingly not a tag-team title match: Later that night, Charlie Haas and Rico defended the belts against Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn. Yeah, it was dark times for SD's tag-team division.

WCW World Tag Team Championship Match
Slamboree 1993

The Hollywood Blondes vs. Los Dos Hombres

Lethal Lottery Tag-Team Match
Slamboree 1996

Ric Flair and Randy Savage vs. Arn Anderson and Eddie Guerrero

Yeah, like that could possibly end well.

15-Man Cruiserweight Battle Royal
For an Immediate Shot at Chris Jericho's WCW Cruiserweight Championship
Slamboree 1998

And no, I'm not naming all the participants.

The Cruiserweight Title match is shown immediately afterward.

Slamboree 1998
Bret Hart vs. Randy Savage

AWA Women's Championship Match
SuperClash II

Sherri Martel vs. Madusa

AWA World Heavyweight Championship Match
SuperClash II

Nick Bockwinkel vs. Curt Hennig

WHOA~!

ECW World Television Championship Match
WrestlePalooza 1998

Rob Van Dam vs. Sabu

WCW Monday Nitro, May 27, 1996
Mike Enos vs. Scott Doll

"You people-- you know who I am. But you don't... know why... I'm here."

WCW World Television Championship
Monday Nitro, 5/4/98

Booker T vs. Fit Finlay

Eugene's Debut Match
RAW, 5/10/04

Eugene vs. Rob Conway

WWF Tuesday Night Titans, 5/14/86
Funk Family Barbecue

Champion vs. Champion Steel Cage Match
Madison Square Garden, 5/19/80

Bob Backlund (WWF Champion) vs. Ken Patera (WWF Intercontinental Champion)

A non-title match, I think.

WWF WrestleMania VII
The Rockers vs. Haku and The Barbarian

WWE World Tag Team Championship Match
RAW, 5/12/03

Rob Van Dam and Kane vs. The Legion of Doom

Yup, the original Legion of Doom, which I believe was Hawk's last match in WWE before he died. *sniff*


Great, great stuff this month.

I'll be sure to watch that one next, thanks, Mr. Shh.

Right now, though, I just started watching the Iron Man match, and for some reason (sleep deprivation? memory overload?) I'd actually forgotten about HBK's dramatic entrance in that match until I saw his manager Jose Lothario head down to the ring alone.

My God. It still blows your mind, doesn't it? I would not have the faith to eeeever do something like that. Granted I have the benefit of hindsight and a sad memory of what happened to Owen. But even before that... ain't no way you're even getting me up there, let alone repelling me from the rafters, let alone at THAT speed! And if it means you decide not to book me to win the WWF Title at WrestleMania, so be it!

[Edit:]

Some more phenomena about this match-- this was back with the really bouncy, really loud ring that makes you cringe every time someone takes a fall, 'cuz you're thinking, "Owww, he landed on metal or something." Also, this was back when Jerry Lawler was very good on color commentary, not the oversexed hack that he is today.

Michaels' skinning the cat was much, much quicker than the way he does it now. Bret turned his back on Shawn for maybe two, three seconds tops and before he knew it, Shawn had not only skinned the cat, but started whaling on him. In comparison, HBK's current skin-the-cat maneuver is almost a parody of the way it used to be. (And don't misunderstand me, heck, I voted for HBK to win Best Wrestler 2005.)

"You people-- you know who I am. But you don't... know why... I'm here."


Actually, it was THE MAULER (who is technically Mike Enos, but not in THIS MATCH) vs. STEVE DOLL!

I'm going to assume it was the WWE who got these details wrong and not you.

Absolutely terrible match. I have no idea why they'd add THAT to the Jukebox. ;-)

The site lists the Iron Man match at running 16 minutes or so...is it just bits and clips of it, or did they make a mistake when they were typing up the page.

If it's bits and clips, well, that's kind of lame and takes away from viewing the match.



It's just a message board, people. Chill out. Now, go show your internet diapproval of me! YEA!

It's a typo. It's the match in full, 1 hour and 16 minutes. Entrances and all.

The Slamboree match was interesting, and it was great watching Eddie with the rest of them. Why doesn't the WWE do the Lethal Lottery concept? I've always thought it was a a great idea, back in the day, that could produce some great drama (Starrcade/Battlebowl - Sting and Abdullah on the same side?).

And the Cruiserweight battle royal was classic just for Jericho's ring introductions, alone. I had forgotten all about that match.

I would of preferred a couple more matches from the 70's and 80's this month (AWA or JCP), but it's still a great crop of matches.

I see match listings, but I dont see star ratings.

Let me know how the Backlund match is, that early 80's wwf style was so basic, but it whipped up the new yorkers.



I just remembered that im absent minded
wait i mean i lost my mind, i cant find it.

Yes I remember this match. That was when Jericho was at his best, busting out the cruiserweight moves and gold on the mic every time out. His ring introductions for the match were up there with the list of 1,004 holds as his best segments ever. Also while the battle royal was pretty standard, I remember Jericho and the winner (won't say who it is since it was a surprise opponent of sorts) had a pretty hot match after the Battle Royal.

Good news for a lot of us: Comcast is finally getting on board. (Hollywood Reporter) No dates listed yet, other than Summer.

I believe the other possibility that was mentioned if the ECW reunion didn't work out was a return of King of the Ring, which is actually something I wouldn't mind seeing.
