    Primetime Disscussion Thread

    I think they just liked getting Monsoon and Heenan out of the studio once in a while. The trip to Atlantic City before WMIV was very entertaining.

    Looks like this week's Prime Time has skipped even further to 2/6/89. WTF? EDIT: Checking on the program guide, I understand why. This episode was another Monsoon/Heenan road trip, this time on the "Hollywood" set of a Western. It fights with the current theme of the month. So we should go back to 1988 afterwards.

    Fun Prime Time this week. It's the WM4 special from Trump Plaza. Heenan is in rare form, along with Monsoon. I always enjoyed the road trip edition of Prime Time. -The Killer Bees vs The Conquistors was a fun match that did a good job utilizing the mask gimmick. -During Steve Lombardi's match, Monsoon made his usual reference to Lombardi being a graduate of the "Terry Garvin School of Self-Defense." Interesting bit was that during the match we have a segway where Heenan and Monsoon bet on whose going to win. Heenan goes with SD, surprising Monsoon. Monsoon says that Heenan had said that he might manage a guy like Steve Lombardi. Less than a year later, he would do just that. -We get another Ultimate Warrior vs Harley Race match, this time from the Boston Garden. It's a good match with Warrior winning in a way you wouldn't expect from him.

    WWE 24/7 Classics OnDemand General Discussion

    Looking forward to this update. Included is the Prime Time Wrestling where Monsoon and Heenan are at Trump Plaza before WM4. Always liked when the two of them took a road trip. Also, the Shorties section has a real classic. Adrian Adonis and Dick Murdock defending the WWF Tag Team Championship against The Briscos at MSG in December of 1984. Saw this on MSG Classics and it was a kick ass match.

    NWA Weekly Programming Thread

    I started watching after the first Clash of the Champions in 1988. What I always remember was "Fishing with Orlando Wilson" always came on before the NWA. "I'm going fish-ing again..."

    Forgot to mention...Bad News Brown cuts a long and entertaining promo after defeating Outback Jack.

    The build to WMIV continues. Interesting match...we have the Ultimate Warrior vs Harley Race but sadly, it barely lasts a minute.

    The OAO WWE DVD Thread

    They should have put a Rock N Roll Express vs The Midnight Express match on that DVD. Maybe the match were the Midnights won the title on TBS. Also, The Briscos vs Murdock and Adonis from MSG in 1984 was a classic. Otherwise, this looks to be a pretty stacked set.

    I've definitely been enjoying all the build to WMIV (which, like WMII, was better than the actual show itself) and all the Monsoon and Heenan bickering over it. Also, I have to say that the Harley Race and Hercules vs The Bulldogs match was pretty good. Harley and Dynamite always brought it. Anyone catch when Davey was running very slowly after Heenan, someone threw a drink at him? BTW, speaking of Harley and the Bulldogs, Race wrote in his autobiography that the only time he used steroids was in the WWF and that he received them from the Bulldogs. He was stunned when the bottle read something like "do not inject directly into the horse." He went on to write that he used it for about five weeks and got bigger but it caused his lower back too much pain and he never tried them again.

    NWA Weekly Programming Thread

    I have to admit, I've gotten used to it. Jones is a buffoon manager but it's kind of funny. At least it's a well-done, drawn out feud. I enjoyed the show a few weeks ago where it was the focus of attention. Like I said then, the inclusion of Rick Rude and Manny Fernandez into the Army improved it immensely. I can't wait till the NWA shows start getting longer. BTW, at the end of the show, Ivan said that Nikita must be punished "old country way." Thankfully, he didn't imply what that meant...

    The 1989 match betwee Terry Funk and a young, small, non-juiced Eddy Guerrero is awesome.

    Monday Night Wars

    Checking out the latest update, now we're back to the beginning of the Monday Night War. Not that it's not cool to see but why the **** are they going backwards when they're almost at the point of the Attitude Era took off? Is this more of their "family-friendly" programming? What, is the Attitude Era stuff now banned?

    WCW SuperBrawl V

    If you ever want to listen to a match where the Brain was hammered, watch the Flair/Guerrero match on the latest Eddie Guerrero DVD. He's completely smashed and Tony and Dusty have to work off him. That was Road Wild 96, the night NWO Hogan won the WCW title.

    Saw that Roma match for the first time in years. Yeah, Roma made him look bad, didn't cooperate with him on moves (like that hiptoss) and could have hurt him. The crowd loved it though.
