I am drowning.
There is no sign of land.
You are coming down with me, hand in unlovable hand.

And I hope you die.

I hope we both die.

So opened up the Network at 7 PM central and it was playing a 1999 Smackdown, and a ticker said it was for "Flashback Fridays". How long has this been a thing? Because I miss when they randomly played old poo poo.

The flashback Fridays branding is new, but they started doing old Raw and Smackdowns a month or so ago.

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.


My favorite DX moment was when Hunter and Shawn bumped into Eric Bischoff backstage, and Bischoff said,"You know, I always thought of DX as a cheap knock-off of the nWo". He walks away, Shawn turns and asks HHH if that is true, and HHH replies,"I'm not gonna lie to you Shawn...." and walks away as well.

Last night I watched the Raw from February 7th 2000. It was a really good show and the last 20 minutes is maybe my favourite Raw segment ever

it's the DX/Radicals v Too Cool/Rock/Cactus 10 man with the return of Kane

watching the attitude era for the first time, its's kinda amazing how little HHH has to do with any of it.

He was the champion for much of the year (with most of the main event storylines focused on him) for over a year during the hottest point of the era.

It does its got everything from hot crowd to the ending stinger with kane coming back was real magic and shame it can never really be shown on anything other than the network as it involves benoit.

I remember there was a website back then that would upload the highlights from RAW every week as SUPER COMPRESSED Real Player files

I specifically remember having that match downloaded in dogshit quality for years because it was so good and I would watch it all the time

Bischoff had a few fun character moments. I always enjoyed it whenever he'd briefly grow a spine and stand up to a heel because they got a little too familiar. He's fine in small doses, he knows how to heel.

Seeing Stephanie actually react and sell people getting one over on her (plus taking a bump!) is actually kinda surreal to see.

sorry, what i meant to say is up to the point i'm up to. in the middle of 1999 is HHH is basically still just a mid to upper card guy in a stable, which is what he's been since the attitude era began.

I've just made my tri-monthly or whatever return to the WWE Network for Takeover/SummerSlam weekend, what's been really good on the Network since about Wrestlemania or so? I saw most of the big "PPV" matches already.

There was a UK network special on a few months ago, and the Chicago takeover was also very good.
