1) MJF makes his big return there, in front of the friendliest crowd he’s likely to get anywhere.
2) He doesn’t appear and the audience continues more or less as usual because the whole rooting-for-him thing was playful anyway.
3) He doesn’t appear and the audience gives AEW its first real taste of a hostile crowd.
4) <insert snarky non sequitur here>
That time Stephanie pretended to compare the steroid trials to 9/11.
Is there any kind of story behind his sudden push?
We all have an opinion of gorilla monsoon as viewers. But, I’ve never heard many workers (aside from Bobby Heenan) talk about him. For a guy who was a fixture for such a long time, it’s kind of surprising. What did people think of him? Was he well liked behind the curtain?
Also wondering if any blog readers ever met him, and any stories they’d care to share.
He was very well liked, yes.
Why was Bret Hart at Ric Flair's Last Match? I thought they despised each other.
In the late 80s/early 90s WWF was running their loop of big venues like MSG, Boston Garden on a regular basis, and televising the cards locally/grabbing matches for Prime Time. What I’m wondering, considering they passed through MSG literally once a month until around the mid 90s, why didn’t they think to tape Superstars or Wrestling Challenge there? They were drawing good houses, but I don’t think it ever once happened. Even when they started scaling back the MSG stops, it took them all the way until 1997 to run RAW there.
Was there a reason behind this? This is what keeps me up at night…
How did HHH leapfrog Nick Khan just like that?
I know officially Khan as the co-CEO has a higher title but it’s clear from the past week of TV who’s pulling the strings.
Bringing back a fired guy in Kross with his old NXT presentation, and inserting him into a main event program with Reigns speaks volumes of HHH’s power.
Speaking of which, Kross is way less scarier or imposing with hair.
He needs to go back to bald like yesterday. Worked for some other big time guys.
