    I am

    It's pretty good to see the indie love growing, and obviously the women's wrestling in particular, but I've not watched any of the MYC. Might give it a look this weekend just to see how some of the SHIMMER girls like Evie & Kimber Lee (Dakota Kai & Abbey Laith) look, but we all know it'll end up going the same way as the Cruiserweights/UK championship/Womens Revolution & get chucked back into irrelevance after two months.

    Yeah, it's not Paige anymore. I should probably change it again soon, to be fair. Not played 'mons for about as long as I've not been watching wrestling regularly.

    PWG still looks amazing from the videos they put on YouTube.

    Raw OPENS WITH A MATCH again. I don't know what to believe any more. I like that jason Jordan's BIG PUSH is just to be a focus of Cena and Reigns slagging each other off.

    The highlight, though, was Boatman no-selling Baroque's German suplex.

    Can you have a D'Lo as the ref too?

    Mark Henry's the ref to keep it impartial and sexual.

    Did you ever play EWR, wullie? I'm just imagining your Wrestlemania main events. D'Lo taking on the Posse in a 3 v 1 handicap match.

    And winning, naturally.

    Well, the latest Botchamania made me realise Rosemary getting her arm snapped wasn't the worst thing that happened on that PPV. It's a textbook shambles. The only thing that was missing was some kind of lights failure or cutting the feed as the commentators say their goodbyes.

    Also, I'm calling Sexy Star 'Scar Tits' for the rest of her life. It's like an Abdullah the Butcher boob job.

    The EWR/TEW days

    We must have spent loads of time on that over the space of about six weeks, and then never looked at it again!

    The headbutt on Vince.

    Shane in another Hell in a Cell match.

    I also watched the MYC final. Not an amazing match but it was smartly done (Baszler's choke had been set up as the submission of the tournament but then they set up a means of escape for Sane during the match) and Sane was the correct winner.

    I still maintain that WWE are wasting their time until they get D'Lo and William Regal together to decide who gets a fifth reign, and therefore to keep it for good. Get it booked for Wrestlemania.

    So I've finally started on my WCW PPV trawl. I'll be doing the same as with my WWF/E one. I'm not watching every match of every show. It'll be a mix of the stuff that appeals and the stuff that reviews well when I Google them.

    Starting with.... Jesus Christ, Starrcade from 1983.

    First match up is Orton Jr. / Dick Slate vs. Wahoo McDaniel / Mark Youngblood. First sign of how old this is, Slater does a heel spot where he's Irish whipped and he jumps over the top rope, then appeals to the ref for the DQ.

    Godspeed. I remember rewatching the start of nWo and the amount of time they spend on them brutalising the back (instead of wrestling the roster) results in a lot of boos. I was completely into it as a 13 year old. Not so much now.

    Yeah, I didn't watch any WCW after about 1992 as a kid. I dunno whether to actually try and watch some Nitros and stuff as well once I get to that era but even watching interviews with Kevin Nash now annoy me so watching the nWo being given license to drive WCW into the ground doesn't really appeal.

    Anyway, I've a way to go before I get to that. Currently Harley Race's gut is threatening to piledrive Ric Flair in their main event.

    Loving the crowd from the one match I have watched so far though. They're well into it. And they're not even trying to put themselves over.

    EDIT: Next up: Greg Valentine against "Scotland's" Roddy Piper in a dog chain match.

    Sorry, a dog collar match. A normal chain / strap match but they're actually collared to each other.

    I don't know when you get the Judy Bagwell on a pole match but you should really watch the Judy Bagwell on a pole match. It's not good but it does have Judy Bagwell, and she's on a pole.

    It's what limiting yourself to PPV's might screw you over with. WCW were desperate from the word go. Nitro and Thunder will have gold. And Thunder in Paradise.

    Is that the one that features Chris Kanyon before he made the mistake of being a gay man in the WWF? I think Zane was talking about it on WWW recently. I certainly saw about it somewhere.

    I'll maybe dip into TV as well. It was WCW I used to watch when we first came back from the Middle East and I'd watched it with my grandma. I dunno that I remember Hogan in WCW but I definitely remember Vader, Sting and (weirdly, these are my main memory) the tag team of Stars and Stripes. Stars and Stripes of course, featuring a young Buff Bagwell. No Judy though.

    Thunder in Paradise, though. I'll have to make sure to rewatch Mr. Nanny as well.

    He wrestles Randy Savage in a wig at some point, I think that might be on a Nitro. The late ones are worth watching just for how mad they are, they thought nothing of giving away big matches so you'll definitely miss stuff.

    Much like WWE does now, if so. Though for entirely different reasons.

    Didn't they do Goldberg Vs Hogan on free TV just because it was in Goldberg's home town? (Or where he played football, or some shit). Fucking mental.

    Did Goldberg win in his home town though? This is where we can perhaps tell your CWs from your WEs.

    It was in the Georgia Dome too, so they passed up both the chance to sell the match on PPV but to sell thousands of premium tickets as well.

    I see Rafa more as the Bischoff figure (ie still disillusioned to this day) but it all falls down when you try and cast Mike Ashley as Billionaire Ted.

    Unrelated and I dunno what suddenly made me think of it but I meant to say how weird I thought Ziggler giving The Ultimate Warrior shit in his new gimmick was. Surprised the WWE wrote that for him.

    What with that and Jackson I think Ziggler just really hates dead people.

    When Vince thinks he's right he likes to rub it in, even if it means reaching beyond the grave.

    Speaking of DubYa See DubYa, WWE have announced they're bringing back Starrcade, for what looks like a live event in North Carolina in November. Might well end up being a WWE Network event.

    They were planning on doing that last year (so I heard) but never made the PPV list.

    They should really make Money In The Bank a multi-branded PPV and leave it alone.

    All of the on-screen WhatCulture lot have left, or are leaving the company and show in the next couple of weeks.
