It was the What Happened When show with Tony Schiavone. Basically 2 hours of Tony & Conrad setting up some of Mean Gene's best clips with some stories behind them. Pretty cool they got clearance from WWE to air them on the podcast.

Finishing this tape.

Speaking of '90s wrestlers who didn't have any entrance music, it's "Terrific" Terry Taylor. It is staggering to think that Terry Taylor would have another go at a WWF run after Red Rooster. I guess he figured it couldn't go any worse.

He's facing Macho Man. Another "matches you didn't know existed" thread candidate. Gorilla Monsoon and Lord Alfred are kind of implying this is Terry Taylor's debut.

Oh no wait. They just talked about him having a winning streak.

Kind of odd to see how '93 WWF commentators kind of portrayed Macho Man as an elder statesman when he was same age that AJ Styles is now.

WWF thinking Macho Man was washed 4 or 5 years before that was actually the case is an underrated dumb decision. Think of how great Mach would be in New Generation and Attitude era WWF. Grr.

Next is Bret Hart defending the Intercontinental Title (even though this tape came out in mid '93) against my namesake Kamala.

Matches like this are why I pay $9.99 to the WWE Network.

Sean Mooney again covers for these matches being outdated (Kamala was babyface by this time) by talking about Kimchee (who Lord Alfred Hayes notes DOES NOT speak Swahili) and Harvey Whippleman being abusive towards Kamala.

Loving Bret Hart and Kamala having a basic house show match. DON'T TAKE THAT TEST OF STRENGTH OFFER, BRET!

A lot of the match is Kamala working on Bret Hart's titty



I've never seen a wrestler work on his opponent via extended titty twisters. My man Kamala really is an unorthodox competitor.

Match ends with Kimchee and Harvey running in for a DQ then Kamala squashing Harvey accidentally and Bret wearing Kimchee's hat. *****

El Matador Vs Razor Ramon.

Fuck yes. Any tape with two El Matador matches is a masterpiece.

These guys seem more intense than the usual guys in a Coliseum Video exclusive match. Maybe cause it's the fake Hispanic guy getting a main event push going against the actual Hispanic guy getting pushed down the card.

Razor wins a semi squash with the Razor's Edge. El Matador should've spent more time in bull fighting school, I guess.

Tape closes with the Ric Flair Vs Mr. Perfect Loser Leaves Town match from the 3rd episode of RAW. Don't have much to add except the first RAW set is still cool af.

I legit think heel Savage helps save Diesel's run.

Would the fans cheer Diesel over Savage, though?  I don't think I would have even at 12 years old back then
