Survivor Series

As a fan of the 0ld ’80s WWF, I love the reenactment of a classic Survivor Series. Remember it was the Thanksgiving night tradition? The Survivor Series! 10 teams, 48 Superstars reenacted with action figures!

(Note. Be prepared to turn down your volume, a sound clip begins to play that you can turn off at the bottom of the page.)

WWE Survivor Series Anthology, Volume 1 & 2

Survivor Series Anthology

Survivor Series, the once great “Thanksgiving Night Tradition” is now available in two 5 disc set anthologies. I remember begging my parents to allow me to order the Survivor Series on Thanksgiving day. Sadly, they thought family time was more important. Eventually it became the “Thanksgiving Tradition” and stopped being shown on Thanksgiving day. Now you can relive the Pay-Per-View events over and over again.

Captain Lou Albano, Dies

According to the Miami Herald the Captain was placed in a hospice by his family on Monday.  He did not have cancer, the Herald said.

Albano began his career as grappler but found his true calling as nasty manager who handled the Wild Samoans and Masked Executioners.

Lou retired in 1995 and was promptly inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Lou was also featured in several Cyndi Lauper music videos “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”, “She Bop” and “Time After Time” often appearing as her father.

Their unlikely partnership helped launch  Rock ‘n’ Wrestling which transformed the then small time WWF into  prominence on the national landscape.

Lou also acted in many low budget actioners and TV shows including The Super Mario Brothers Super Show and Miami Vice.

“Often imitated, never duplicated,” was Lou’s oft-repeated self-assessment.

The Rise And Fall of WCW DVD

wcw
I was very excited to get the new WWE DVD: The Rise and Fall of WCW. I really enjoy the WWE documentary DVDs over the collection of matches. I couldn’t wait to hear the discussions on the ultimate failure of the organization. Sadly, the beginnings of the WCW is very boring.

WWE Allied Powers: The World’s Greatest Tag Teams

I was a little puzzled about this DVD. The cover features some of the newer WWE wrestlers, but the DVD spends most of the time on tag teams from the past. That’s a good thing! Like the previous releases, this DVD is hosted by wrestlers.  The Miz & John Morrison introduce the various Tag Teams with no real thoughts on the wrestlers. I prefer the format where we hear the other wrestlers opinions, and sometimes hatred for them. …continue reading WWE Allied Powers: The World’s Greatest Tag Teams

WWE: Macho Madness – The Randy Savage Ultimate Collection

wwedvd210

I have never been a big fan of the Macho Man. I always found him to be a bit of a douche. Apparently so do most of his wrestling peers! Unlike the Ultimate Warrior DVD where his peers discussed his self-destruction, this DVD only features wrestling matches. That came as a bit of a disappointment. I guess we will never find out what was the problem between Savage and the WWE?

Essential Seven Wrestlemania Moments

Hogan and Mr. T

Reviewing the Wrestlemania XXV DVD put me in a WWF nostalgia mood. I was a hardcore fan of wrestling starting in the early 80’s. I remember the excitement I had of watching my favorite stars battle it out on pay-per-view every year. So this weeks Essential Seven list is my Essential Seven Wrestlemania Moments. This list is a bit biased. I haven’t seen every Wrestlemania, but can the newer ones be as good as they were in the 80’s and 90’s? I don’t think so!

Wrestlemania XXV DVD

I haven’t been following WWE wrestling for years (fifteen years to be exact). I didn’t realize that this is the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania. Watching the Wrestlemania 25 DVD I was shocked at how uneventful the show was. This was a celebration of 25 years of WWE entertainment! Luckily for fans, the DVD is well produced with some good special features.
