I know I saw this once upon a time but crazy looking back - Classic Hardyz vs. Mr. Perfect and Big Bossman not long before their WWE depatures (and deaths) with a run-in from Baby Brock Lesnar

Heenan couldn't sound more drunk and spiteful.

Also even by '00 WCW standards, Muta jobbing to Tank Abbott in under three minutes following interference from "The Cat" Ernest Miller is DUMB.

Looking up WWE title defences for that other thread, I found out about this:

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6tqf6

Bret vs Buddy Landell from an early 96 Raw. No wonder he couldn't be taken seriously, this is like brock going toe to toe with Bo Dallas.

WWE booking hasn't regressed in every way, there's still more bottom to explore.


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

It's even worse.  They bumped it from Raw and replaced it with a match from the previous PPV.  This ended up airing on WWF Mania for six people (including myself) to see.

I just watched Ricky Morton pin Scott Norton CLEAN in 1996 on the Bash at the Beach pre-show. Norton was turning heel and argued with Ice Train over who would pin Morton, leading to him getting cradled.

I wish footage of the Funks and Foley with Heenan in their corner against the Midnight Express would pop up. I'm sure the match isn't great, but it'd be worth it for the Heenan/Cornette interaction.

The Miz is originally going to face TJP.  Guest host Snoop Dogg interrupts and replaces TJP with Marty Jannetty.

My podcast Not Ready for Prime Time Wrestling did a show where we watched rare/unusual matches. 

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/smartmarkradio/2018/03/15/not-ready-for-prime-time-wrestling-episode-22-matches-you-never-knew-existed

The matches we covered (and yes, I'm doing a cheap plug so you can listen and watch along):



I know this one was already in the thread but we felt we had to cover it.



Yes, that's Muta and fucking Goldberg as a team.



(This just happened to play following the second match, but included for completion sake)



I never knew this one happened but I'm glad I watched it.

The only way that trio could be better is if Gillberg was bumped to have The Patriot (gimmick) reunite with old partner Buff Bagwell to have HACKSAW leading STARS AND STRIPES (tough guy)

From Mexico sometime in 1992.  Andre the Giant (busting out the RED singlet), Canek, and Villano III vs Bad News Allen, Kokina (Yokozuna) and...THE BLACK SCORPION!  It's actually 2 Cold Scorpio under the mask, although the video's thumbnail shows a picture of Flair as the Black Scorpion from 1990.  But seeing Andre and Yoko square off is pretty cool, I think

I somewhat remember this one but figure it is worth sharing here given one of the competitor's newfound recognition in 2018.  From his brief run in WWE with the CWC, Kota Ibushi worked a couple NXT matches.  At that point, Buddy Murphy had dissolved his team with Blake but would work some of the better workers that were adjusting to WWE style such as when he worked the house show loop with Aleister Black when Black was still relatively new to the company.  Not long after this, Murphy faded off into the background until getting his shot on 205 Live this year

I would've had zero knowledge on New Japan back when I would've watched this, so in looking up some about Tanahashi while getting ready for his match against Omega at WK13, I discovered he had been AJ Styles' opponent at Final Resolution back in 2006.

I never knew Art Barr worked a dark match for WWE nor did I know Konnan competed without the Max Moon gimmick.
