Ah, my friend, let me take you back in time to the glorious era of professional wrestling, where heroes and villains clashed in the squared circle, and legends were born. It was the late 1980s, a time when larger-than-life characters captured our hearts and the world watched in awe. And amidst this spectacle, a story unfolded that would forever be etched in the annals of wrestling history—the tale of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage, who formed the mighty tag team known as the Mega Powers.
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 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
Demolition was probably my favorite tag team when I was a child. It began with their awesome looking black leather outfit with spikes all over it that even included a sinister looking mask. To top it all off, when they took their masks off, they had awesome looking face paint! …continue reading about Demolition’s feud with the Powers of Pain
This epic tag team rivalry took place off and on for over a year seeing The British Bulldogs have their only WWF Tag Team title reign stolen from them by a crooked referee! Although the Bulldogs would try multiple times, they were never able to regain their titles again. …continue reading about The Hart Foundation’s feud with The British Bulldogs
The night had finally come, it was January 22nd, 1994 and it was Royal Rumble time. More importantly, it was time for the first casket match featuring the unstoppable Yokozuna and the even more unstoppable monster, The Undertaker. This is a great follow up to the recent article on Bret Hart’s night at the 1994 Royal Rumble. …continue reading about Undertaker vs Yokozuna in a Casket Match
Wrestlemania V was dubbed “The Mega Powers Explode”. The Mega Powers was comprised of the WWF’s two biggest superstars: Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. …continue reading about The Twin Towers’ Role Leading to Wrestlemania V
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”.
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 starts at $11,000 and 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.
