Re: Starrcast 2, Las Vegas (May 23-26, 2019)

There's a Magee vs DiBiase dark match from 12/7/88 on the WWE Network, under the Hidden Gems section, if you want to get a look at the guy's work. IMO, he definitely had a lot of potential, but he did look a little lost a couple of times, and again, he's working with one of the better workers in th...

They're already promoting a dual Bret/Magee panel where they discuss the match, so I'd be shocked if a dual photo op isn't offered.
See, I'd actually really like to attend that lol.

I'm dying to see this match. I don't expect it to be anything mindblowing but I'm really curious to see it

Re: Starrcast 2, Las Vegas (May 23-26, 2019)

I know there's a lot of hype, especially with the Bret tape surfacing, but Magee does absolutely nothing for me personally. He had like two matches in his life that most people can even point to (and most of those fans have never actually seen either), and both happened to be with one of the better...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

That is incredible! It certainly looks like a private/corporate event but still...those kids are lucky as hell.

I just read this incredibly story about Dan Severn and Dory Funk getting into a shoot fight while Severn was signing autographs for fans after a show.

Re: NJPW talent annonced for latest WOTW tour

GoD, Goto, EVIL, and SANADA have done those M&Gs in the past.

I'd love to get Nagata and Kojima if they were ever in NYC

Re: Legends of the Ring 28 (June 1st, 2019)

Where do you come up with a guess of shaul Guerrero? She's married to Aiden English, so perhaps she'd be booked for this show as well. There was a LOTR where someone brought in Maria Kanellis and Mike Kanellis showed up unannounced and did free combos for anyone who asked. It would be cool if wrest...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

Also, the Axxess from WrestleMania X sounds pretty much like the Axxess at WrestleMania 35. It's amazing how little has changed.

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

WMX was the first Fan Fest, but they did do some sort of M&G stuff in conjunction to WM4 - I remember the Coliseum Home Video version had clips of events and autograph signings. Starting at about 2:45 in the video below, you can see Jesse Ventura, Steamboat, Gorilla Monsoon, and Mean Gene signing f...

Re: List of people in the Savage realm

Is it fair to add Beulah from ecw to this list? She actually worked the food counter at the one House of Hardcore show I attended by, IIRC, she was not up for doing combos. People asked her to sign stuff and take pics and she said no? I believe someone asked her if she'd be signing after the show a...

Re: A look at the hobby in the 90s

I'm up to 1994 and I think this is the year they started doing Axxess (called Fan Fest) and there's *a lot* of similarities to Axxess today. Stay tuned for those details.
