Final thoughts: Tully was an engaging guest, however with the passage of time he is now mellow to subjects that would have once led to bitter rants. His personal growth is to the detriment of the subject matter. That is not to suggest that this shoot is poor in any manner, just a heads up to what one may suspect.

if it's 'not poor in any manner', then is it good? little open-ended there.

btw, where do you find this stuff? YouTube?


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

Have you seen George Steele's 1986 WWF timeline shoot?  I've seen parts of it and I think it's really good.  Some good stories about Savage and Andre, though most of the Andre stuff may have been heard from others in the business

It was good, but not a must see.

I buy these shoots from a bootlegger.

I'm positive I reviewed this for CXF years ago but it is not coming up in Mr Searchy.

I like the Bret read, Brody but quick question - it mentions HBK/Bret at Mania 13 and Bret/Backlund at 12.  Those are bumped back a year each (HBK was 12 and Backlund was 11, 13 was the Stone Cold match) - is that how Bret remembered it?  I know sometimes the wrestlers are bad remembering the years but just curious.  Really fun read though as Bret usually holds nothing back.

Not sure if Bret said it, but I should have caught that   I'll fix it!

Funk shoot was a fun read.  Agree with BZ on the prop guy stuff, though I'd be curious to hear Foley's take.  Funk saying they should've gotten him fired is something I can just see Foley denying.

Nash was fun too.  This sounds like one of the shoots (and time periods) I tend to like reading about more.  Some good points and some very Nash-like things.

I really wish they would've dragged Outsiders-Steiners into a court room drama with a police officer t-shirt turn.  Bet that would've been the highlight of that CNN reporter's career.

Awesome rundown, Brody. I love this part the most:
Quote
Too many wrestlers decided that they could be the top guy in a group and that led to not enough roster depth to create a strong promotion as many smaller groups rose up. Hansen will not blame comedy wrestling or the fake MMA style for the business falling off in the 2000’s.
I think there's a ton more to this and how it relates to the current state of the US scene than most are willing to acknowledge.
