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

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

The Undertaker versus Bret The Hitman Hart

This is such a great follow up to my recent post about The Undertaker: Did He Ever Get Knocked Down.  I had the pleasure to watch Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection recently.  One of the matches that stood out was his first match against The Undertaker from January of 1992.  This match would have been closely after the 1992 Royal Rumble because Bret Hart was no longer the Intercontinental Champion. …continue reading about The Undertaker versus Bret The Hitman Hart

In 1989, the Earthquake made his WWF debut.  He was an imposing figure.  He began his career by crushing every opponent he faced.  It was very intimidating and exciting at the same time as he would prepare for his finishing move, the Earthquake Splash, when he would jump around his opponents head shaking the entire ring.  Of course one Earthquake Splash was never enough.  He would have to do it 2 or 3 times until his opponent would be carried away on a stretcher.  As Jesse Ventura would say, “It’s the aftershock, you always have to be prepared for it”.

Rick Rude – The ultimate sports entertainer

Ahhh “Ravishing” Rick Rude.  Back in the 80s, I hated him.  How could I not?  He had one of  the greatest, long running, feuds in WWF history with The Ultimate Warrior!

Rick’s matches would always be delayed by his need to “entertain the ladies”.  He would ask for his music to be cut, grab a microphone, and begin belittling the entire audience.  This incensed fans in the building including me at home, on my couch, yelling at my TV.
