In our defense this show was taped before the ROH PPV ending happened. Doesn't justify anything, just explains why there was still hope in our hearts. Also Alex Riley talk!
Walking out the door to Payback and we take a look back at Chikara during a much simpler time. A show that looks so interesting on paper provides such...whiny results.
Funaki vs. Francis may be the main event but Green Ant vs. Gulak steals the show. Add in a little Beyond flavor and a low price point and how can a show make anything but a great...Impression.
It took us four years and two attempts but we've finally finished the Chicago doubleshot portion of the Milestone Series. Talking a historic six man, a long main event, concussion junction and more it's a show two tries in the making.
Here we are with our first show of the weekend taped much earlier this week talking the 2016 WWE Hall of Fame class. As is tradition maybe not covering their finest moments but certainly a representation of the careers of the men and woman being inducted in the class of 2016. WCW, All Japan, Puerto Rico, WWE & more as we circle the globe for this rousing episode of the Untitled Wrestling Show.
After so many years we're finally going back to the Trump Plaza to finish what we started with WrestleMania 4. It's another very, very long show but can it measure up to the spectacle that was the world title tournament? Can it even measure up to the spectacle that was The Rock shooting his name with a flamethrower? Yes. Yes it can.
Much like Fall Brawl 93, large portions of this show should have been left forgotten to the ravages of time. Lengthy sidetracks include more Chris Champion, politics & race in WCW, the NFL & WCW, WCW's medical plan, rebooking a poorly planned Wargames and much much more. A meandering tale the likes of which we haven't put out in quite a long while. And it all builds to WRESTLEMANIA WEEK!
Some days all the years blend together and this...this is one of those days. A meandering look at a disappointing ECW extravaganza just before they finally made it to the bright lights of the Nashville Network.
