OK, time to compare house show business from 1992 to 1993. Thrilling!
So Dave skipped a week for personal reasons, and he immediately apologizes for this being a “sub par” issue, but he just wanted to hit all the giant news stories before they went cold. Is this gonna be like where he talks about a “slow news week” and then I’m left with a 30 page recap?
“Dude, with all the problems in the world – where, oh where are the Wrestling Observer Flashbacks. Earlier this year we were on pace to hit the colossally repugnant 1995. I was waiting with baited breath. Now, my days are left unfulfilled. Help a brother out.”
I see your point, especially since I’m getting sick of hearing from groups of people on Facebook who support or don’t support kneeling or flags or what the fuck ever they’re fighting about and just won’t shut the hell up about it already.
This guy gets it. Now, back to the relative sanity of two people fighting with a pair of safety scissors in a hotel.
Hey, we’re back. I literally had a week’s worth of material finished and ready to post by last Wednesday with the Mae Young Classic rants and then after setting it all to post and watching the hits roll in, realized on Sunday night at 10:00pm that I didn’t have anything ready for Monday morning on the blog. The Mae Young gravy train has finally dried up! So let’s jump back into the Observers again.
Also, for those playing along at home, this one is filed under “October 5” in the Observer archives for some reason.

This week, mixed martial arts breaks onto PPV in North America and is a big success!
No, not UFC.
Thankfully, the Observer archives are fixed, so let’s get back into the swing of things again.

I won’t bore you with details, but I screwed up and posted the 10/11 issue first because I had been working on this one during all the website problems with F4WOnline.com and never got a chance to finish it. So I had to go back last night and redo the 10/4 issue to prevent any further rips in the space-time continuum.

So last week’s recap was the September 27 issue, but unfortunately I skipped the September 20 issue because it’s mis-labeled as September 29, so it’s CATCH-UP time. Unfortunately, server issues persist on the Observer site, so it’s a major pain in the ass to access the back issue archives and it’s lucky I was able to get to this one. Otherwise it’d be 1997 WWF up the wazoo until it’s fixed. And no one wants that. Attitude Era, yucky.
