The Heartbreaking Demise of The Rockers

The Rockers.  One of my favorite tag teams of the late 1980s, early 1990s.  The Rockers were so exciting to watch, starting from their awesome music that they ran out to the ring with, followed by how they leaped over the top rope simultaneously, their long hair, the bright colored tights, the tassels around their arms, to their in-ring high flying, synchronized wrestling moves. …continue reading about The Heartbreaking Demise of The Rockers

King Kong Bundy Bites Hulk Hogan’s Head Off (Literally)

Let’s set the stage for this iconic heel interview that the enormous King Kong Bundy gave just weeks before Wrestlemania II.  With Wrestlemania being such a huge success, it was almost time for Wrestlemania II.  In the main event it was the unstoppable King Kong Bundy against the WWF Champion, Hulk Hogan. …continue reading about King Kong Bundy Bites Hulk Hogan’s Head Off (Literally)

Yokozuna’s Historic 280 Day WWF Title Reign

Yokozuna was a great wrestling attraction.  He was an extremely large wrestler, but was able to move pretty well.  Yokozuna joined the WWF in late 1992 and immediately received a big push to super stardom.  Yokozuna was paired up with Mr Fuji and was known for his devastating finishing move – Banzai Drop – which he would normally give to his opponents multiple times.  He was not a fan favorite, but at the same time he wasn’t booed like a bad guy; it was more like a silent fear. …continue reading about Yokozuna’s Historic 280 Day WWF Title Reign

Money Inc Winning Tag Team Gold

Money Incorporated (Inc for short) was quite the ironic tag team when you think about what The Million Dollar Man, Ted DiBiase and Irwin R. Schyster (abbreviated to I.R.S.) would preach about as heels.  Firstly, IRS would walk around calling everyone tax cheats stating that they would need to pay their fair share.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the coin (pun intended), you have The Million Dollar Man, constantly bragging about how money could buy him everything.  I guess DiBiase was able to pay his fair share to IRS so he wasn’t considered a tax cheat… …continue reading about Money Inc Winning Tag Team Gold

Bret Hart – Royal Rumble 1994

The 1994 Royal Rumble ranks very high on my list of rumble favorites.  The finish of the main event as a 12 year old kid was epic.  I remember going to school the next day and talking about it all day.  Some friends were claiming Lex’s feet touched first, while others were petitioning that Bret’s feet touched first.  As a Bret Hart fan, I was just happy that he was a co-winner especially considering that it looked like Bret wasn’t even going to be able to compete in the Royal Rumble match. …continue reading about Bret Hart – Royal Rumble 1994

The High Five That Prevented A Wrestlemania III Rematch

It was Thanksgiving Night in 1987 at the first ever Survivor Series.  In the main event, Hulk Hogan would captain his team of 5 against Andre The Giant, who was the captain of his 5-man team.  This was billed as Andre’s first match since Wrestlemania III after suffering his first ever loss at the hands of the Hulkster. …continue reading about The High Five That Prevented A Wrestlemania III Rematch
