My first one was the Thanksgiving SD in 1999 with the food fight and everything. I think the main was Rock/Test/Shane vs. DX, and I also remember a cage match between the Hardys and the New Age Outlaws. I had a lot of fun, probably one of the best times I've had at a wrestling event.

Well I saw the 'Superstars of Wrestling' in my hometown of Hobart, which was a HUGE letdown apart from the appearances of LOD and MR F'N PERFECT. Perfect beat Tatanka with a Perfectplex in the ME, and that was the only suplex all night! LOD beat Public Enemy in a tables match.


My second live event was by far one of the greatest nights of my life. 56,000 people, a Colonial Stadium record, the atmosphere was unlike anything I had ever been a part of. It was about two weeks before SummerSlam last year, August 10. Angle gave Test what was one of the best wrestling matches that Test has ever been in, Rey Rey and Kidman tore the house down in a Tag Title match with the other UnAmericans, and in the main event, Rocky beat Triple H and Brock in a Triple Threat Match for the Undisputed Title. It was brilliant, and I got great photos of Edge, Rock and Triple H. I will never forget it as long as I live.

It was so long ago, but my first match was at the Halifax Forum. The Macho Man was the wwf champion and he beat Dino Bravo with a classic roll up, though I was hoping for the flying elbow. Also I saw Haku, the bushwackers, UT (who is incredible to see live, much better than on tv).

I had a great time, and yes I was a mark at the time, but looking back, I would probably still enjoy the show had I seen it today.

Depending on how long ago the event was, Rajah has a good collection, but they stopped in September of 2001.


For more recent results, I suggest to you the Wrestling Observer or Lordsofpain.net

My website > Rajah & LOP put together (that's a greater-than sign, btw)


This is just a shill post for those looking for my sig...


As an addition to the post on my first show, two months later I saw HBK vs. Perfect in a rematch. By this time, Diesel had been brought in and Shawn actually got the pin with the superkick after Diesel tripped up the challenger. This was the final match on the card and I was livid that Perfect lost (I always thought he would easily kill HBK and win the title, given the chance) and I had to go home on a down note. Truth be told, I wanted to cuss like I had tourrett's but, being two weeks away from turning 12, I don't think the parents would have enjoyed that.

Plus I got a Bushwackers hat... SCORE.

Mine was way back during the boom period in the mid-80s (1987). I went to a house show in Farmland, Indiana, a small town 20-odd miles east of Muncie. This was during the days that the WWF had enough wrestlers to have three tours going at the same time. Still, the fact that Farmland got a house show at its high school kind of intrigues me.


I don't remember much aside from the main events being Greg Valentine versus Brutus Beefcake, and the British Bulldogs beating whoever they were booked against that night. I want to say the Islanders, or even the Hart Foundation, but I honestly don't remember.


There was only one no-show: Danny Spivey. I was a bit of a Spivey mark when I was 11, so I was a little disappointed.

My first live event was this odd WCW attempt at an Internet only PPV in 1996 or 1997. It was pretty good as they had a decent DDP/Raven match as well as a Booker T/Benoit match (around the time of the Best of 7 seven series), they were supposed to have Flair in the main event (he couldn't make it for whatever reason) so they replaced it with a Nash/Giant main event which ended with a DQ win for Giant after Nash kicked him in the groin. Little Naitch took a lazybomb after that and it was the end.

First live event: Summerslam '94. I took my dad to see this. He doesn't really like wrestling, but it was great father/son bonding.


First house show:


WWF @ Hampton, VA - Coliseum - October 1, 1998

Too Much defeated the Hardy Boyz

Val Venis & Sable defeated Marc Mero & WWF Women's Champion Jackie after a Sable Bomb on Jackie

Headbangers defeated Kurrgan and Golga

WWF European Champion D'lo Brown defeated X-Pac by reverse decision after X-Pac used the belt to pin D'lo

WWF Tag Team Champions New Age Outlaws defeated Jeff Jarrett (substituting for Mark Canterbury) and Dennis Knight

Ken Shamrock and Steve Blackman defeated Owen Hart and Mark Henry

The Rock defeated Mankind and Kane in a triple threat cage match


Edge jerked the curtain on this show; he beat some jobber whose name I don't remember. I remember this because we got lost trying to find our seats, and almost walked into him when he was heading towards the ring (he still did the crowd entrance back then). I also remember this show because I took my ex-wife to this show, and it was pretty much the last "fun" thing we did together before we split up.

You were only nine years old in 1991?

As always, thanks to Cawthon's site:


WWF @ Richfield, OH - Coliseum - June 25, 1989 (I was 6 at the time)

Mark Young defeated Iron Mike Sharpe

The Barbarian defeated Jim Neidhart

Jimmy Snuka defeated the Honkytonk Man

WWF Tag Team Champions Demolition defeated the Big Bossman & Akeem

Mr. Perfect defeated Koko B. Ware

Bad News Brown defeated Paul Roma

WWF World Champion Hulk Hogan defeated Randy Savage


I have an MSG tape of Mark Young; he was acrobatic and green. It was hard to buy him as a professional wrestler at the time.


One half of the Hart Foundation comes to town, and it's Jimbo. Oy!


I was a huge mark for Jimmy Snuka, so I'd imagine this was a markout match for me.


The Demos/Towers match was the match I was most looking forward to. I bought a Demolition poster and was actually a big fan of Slick and Akeem's gimmick. The Bossman added the mean streak that the team needed.


Mr. Perfect comes to town and, in what I would imagine, a quick squash for the Perfect One.


Brown/Roma . . . Another ****1/4 classic.


And, the MAIN EVENT . . . I remember the place going ballistic for this one. However, due to what had happened in weeks/months passes, I couldn't suspend my belief long enough to think Savage had a chance. That, and having my mom profess that Savage didn't have a chance because it was the last match of the night didn't help either. Boy, did she go all out to ruin a perfectly nice evening.

Thanks, Cawthon for the website, you refreshed my memory now. My WWE live events in my life so far were:


WrestleMania IX - Las Vegas, NV - Caesar's Palace - April 4, 1993


El Matador defeated Papa Shango (Dark Match)

Tatanka (w/ Sensational Sherri) defeated WWF IC Champion Shawn Michaels (w/ Luna Vachon) via count-out at 18:14; after the match, Luna attacked Sherri

Razor Ramon pinned Bob Backlund at 3:45 with an inside cradle

Lex Luger pinned Mr. Perfect with a backslide even though Perfect's feet were touching the ropes; after the match, Luger knocked Perfect out with the running forearm; Perfect went looking for Luger after waking up and instead was jumped from behind by Shawn Michaels.


The Undertaker (w/ Paul Bearer) defeated the Giant Gonzalez (w/ Harvey Wippleman) via disqualification when Gonzalez smothered Taker with a rag soaked in Chloraphorm; Taker was stretchered out of the ring but soon came stumbling back, sending Gonzalez out of the ring


Yokozuna (w/ Mr. Fuji) pinned WWF World Champion Bret Hart to win the title after Fuji threw salt in Hart's eyes as the Sharpshooter was applied; after the match, Hulk Hogan disputed the title change and was issued a challenge for an immediate title match, which he accepted.


Hulk Hogan pinned WWF World Champion Yokozuna (w/ Mr. Fuji) to win the title with the legdrop at around the 28 second mark after Fuji accidentally threw salt in his man's eyes


WWF @ Las Vegas, NV - Thomas & Mack Center - August 17, 2001


William Regal defeated Justin Credible


WWF IC Champion Lance Storm defeated Edge (after Christian Speared Edge by mistake. Christian was Super Kicked out of the ring before Lance got the pinfall victory.)


WWF Hardcore Champion Jeff Hardy defeated Rob Van Dam

The Big Show, Billy Gunn, Albert, Scotty 2 Hotty, and Hardcore &

Crash Holly defeated Sean O'Haire, Chuck Palumbo, Tommy

Dreamer, Shawn Stasiak, Mike Awesome, & Hugh Morrus (Yeah, you read that right, it was a TWELVE man tag match).


Matt Hardy & Lita defeated Hurricane Helms & Ivory (by doing the Twist of Fates on their opponents and getting the pinfall wins simutaneously.)


The Acolytes & Spike Dudley defeated the Dudley Boyz & Test


Booker T Promo - Funny funny stuff, we needed this. He came down the aisle and didn't seem to happy with Tony Chimmel's introduction, so Booker walks all the way back and enters to "The WCW Champion and the most electrifying man in sports entertainment!" This time, Booker walked down again to his song, cut a funny promo starting with "The BOOK has finally come back to VEGAS!!!" Then it was about how he was gonna beat the Rock at SummerSlam, did a spinaroonie and more fun stuff. Booker had me entertained. Crowd ate it up chanting Rocky, but that night as the Rock didn't show up! I was laughing my ass off more to that.


WCW Cruiserweight Champion X-Pac defeated WWF Light Heavyweight Champion Tajiri in a non-title match (by hitting Tajiri with one of the belts and getting the pinfall victory)


Kurt Angle, the Undertaker, & Kane defeated Diamond Dallas Page, WCW U.S. Champion Kanyon, & WWF World Champion Steve Austin (when Undertaker gave Kanyon the Last Ride for the win)

Rico (w/ Jackie Gayda) pinned Lance Cade after hitting him with after hitting him with that one kick where he smacks them in the face with the back of his thigh while he holds one of their arms in between his legs. This would be the last time I ever saw Rico as the evil fashion stylist guru and the first time he was paired with Miss Jackie.


Christopher Nowinski & Rodney Mack defeated the Dudley Boyz when Mack pinned D-Von after Nowinski used his face mask as a weapon; after the bout, Spike Dudley helped make the save
