Oh btw I meant to ask, is anyone on here the guy whose doing the 411mania/wrestling reviews of old Raws? They're really really enjoyable to read and I figured if someone is reviewing shows from episode 1 it might be someone on here.

That's J.D. Dunn doing those reviews. I'm also reviewing those old Raw's, they are generally fun shows.

They put up yet another poll . . .

My Favorite Match: Who should we interview?

Kenny Dykstra

Matt Striker

Matt Hardy

Brooklyn Brawler

Evan Bourne

Santino Marella

 

I'm guessing it'll be a close call between Hardy and Marella. I voted Santino. Then again, if Matt was going to show TLC1, I may be regretting that. I sure hope Santino's favorite match doesn't actually involve Santino.

Is it sad I've never looked so forward to a month on 24/7 Online than September and October? Old School month last year was pretty awesome and they're really offering some good stuff for October's voting. Only thing I'm surprised they haven't offered was something for History of IC Title like perhaps to re-profile an older champion. I'm sure they have tons of matches from Savage or Honky Tonk Man they didn't air.

 

Plus they could offer Warrior and Rick Rude on there too. We never did find out why they skipped over their rivalry.

 

Nah, I'm looking forward to Sept/Oct myself. I didn't have internet in Sept 07 (moved on the 1st) but I saw the lineup on my cpu at work and was dying to have DSL installed. And since they've doubled the content, we should be in store for some good stuff.

 

As for the skippage of the IC Title series, here was their response:

 

The video for the episode was corrupt. WWE 24/7 Online had a choice. They could either not air an episode that month or jump ahead to the following show. We decided to jump ahead and as you probably saw, Jack Korpela did a nice job with the transition.

 

Not the best explanation since they could have easily had Korpela retape the 4-6 segments for the 1988-90 ep and reinsert the same matches they were going to air. Dropped ball there.

What if Evan Bourne's favourite match is ROH's Steelcage Warefare from December 2005 :)

We'll never know because let's be honest, 90% of the votes on Fan Nation will be for Matt Hardy. Not that I'm complaining but you know it's a fact. Unless this is why they won't let us vote multiple times so 13 year olds dont vote for Hardy 5000 times.

I told myself I would stuff the ballots for some of these polls but after voting for the same thing like three times, I become disinterested and try my hand at Web Sudoku instead. As Gorilla would say, that'll take the starch out of you.

Class is in session this September with a 7-part series hosted by Matt Striker. Sounds interesting.

Matt Striker's History Lesson: WWE in the '80s

September 1, 2008 | Approx. run time: 78 mins.

Matt Striker returns to his teaching roots and welcomes you to his seven-part class on the territories that used to make up sports-entertainment.

Matt Striker's History Lesson: The AWA

September 1, 2008 | Approx. run time: 38 mins.

The American Wrestling Association was at times an extremely dominant promotion. With the likes of Hulk Hogan, The Midnight Rockers, The Road Warriors and Nick Bockwinkel, it’s a no-brainer why.

Wrestling Challenge: Episode 9

November 2, 1986 | Approx. run time: 36 mins.

The very first Intercontinental Title defense on Wrestling Challenge occurs on this episode. Randy Savage defends the title against Billy Jack Haynes. And if you want controversy, look no further than The Snake Pit, as loud-mouth Roddy Piper attempts to shut up host Jake “The Snake” Roberts.

 

Wrestling Challenge: Episode 10

November 9, 1986 | Approx. run time: 40 mins.

Going back to “old school” doesn’t get any better than reliving Wrestling Challenge. On this edition, The Junkyard Dog and George “The Animal” Steele team up, and the WWE Universe will get a glimpse of Butch Reed, Hercules and The Islanders.

I'm having a blast watching the Raw's posted on the site. I didn't have cable in 1993, so most of the content in those shows are new to me. Is anyone else watching them for the first time in order?

I am. I didn't get cable until late 1994 (WWF Mania w/ the Roadie's debut was the 1st ep of WWF TV I saw on cable . . . in my house). They are definitely fun to watch. Haven't seen the eps posted on 9/1 yet but plan to soon. A lot of the squashes are even a ball . . . Headshrinkers & Quebecers come to mind there. Plus, getting an hour and half of Vince going maniacal every two weeks is worth the price of admission.

"While CWF might be one of the lesser known territories"

 

I love the stuff that they throw in to piss people off.

 

In defense I know nothing about CWF and they have no DVD's on the territory so I didn't find it offensive.

how'd you figure it out? And on another note, looks like they're renaming it to WWE Legacy, lol

 

Can't go wrong with Candice on the promo pic...well just as long as she isn't in any matches this month.

 

I guess Legacy is to differentiate from Classics on Demand? Who knows, kinda like the name.

Wow thanks!

 

I can't access the October page but from the options they gave us I suspect it would be a lean month but with a lot of full shows. Atleast 6 Raw or Challenge, a bunch of full length arena shows, WCW Nitro, History IC TItle, Hot-Beds and the rest of the originals. No complaints here yet...I liked they let us vote on everything.
