It’s Survivor Series weekend. What else did you expect today?
For weeks leading up to Survivor Series 1990, the WWF hyped up what was in this giant egg. There was all sorts of speculation about what or who it could be. Many thought it could be a debuting wrestler, possibly even Ric Flair.
I mean what else did you expect the theme to be this week?
I will say one thing: I miss the days of old themes like this. But the WWE likes to have random bands for theme songs now.
Mickie James returns to the WWE this week when she takes on Asuka at NXT Takeover.
Just over 11 years ago, Mickie James made her debut in the WWE when she saved Trish Stratus from a post match attack from Victoria.
This week’s Daily Features series will have a Survivor Series theme to it!
The big match this coming Sunday is Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar. It was 19 years ago that Goldberg had his first match on Nitro.
If you have never seen the beginning of Doink the Clown, you should. The original heel Doink the Clown was awesome.
Played by Matt Obourne, Doink was the perfect mixture of crazy clown but good wrestler. Bobby Heenan always put over how much Doink could wrestle.
Wrestling fans love to debate things. Everyone always has an opinion about who is the greatest something of all time.
When it comes to the greatest faction of all time, I personally think there is no debate. That honor belongs to the Four Horsemen. No faction can touch them. They meant so much to the success of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA.
People always try to pin point where the entire “Women’s Revolution” started.
Just so you know, it DID NOT start with Stephanie McMahon. Don’t let the WWE fool you. Stephanie McMahon was involved in exactly ONE segment to introduce Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Charlotte. And she never cared ever again.
With Survivor Series less than two weeks away, we look back at the first ever Survivor Series on Tag Team Tuesday.
We see multi-man tag team matches on wrestling programming all the time now. But back in 1987, seeing this many men in one match was a big deal.
Twenty years ago this past weekend, one of the early signs of the WWF’s new “edge” took place.
It happened on November 4 1996. Brian Pillman was in the middle of a feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Pillman was at home with an ankle injury caused by Austin. But Austin vowed to get Pillman.
Yes, I busted out the good stuff this week for WTF Friday.
The Dungeon of Doom was awful. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. They were meant to be a foil to Hulk Hogan in WCW. But they were constantly booked to lose to Hogan. And they were about as cartoonish as you could imagine.
