Wait I'm genuinely confused. How can someone hate george steele?

Like, he has a green tongue, and he eats turnbuckles???

Plus he had his own Daryl, named Mine and some kind of monster.

Only a year away from time-travelling Daniel Bryan.

Don't worry, Daniel Bryan's Wyatt-magic-powered time-travel adventure happened on an episode of Saturday Night's Main Event, not a PPV.

Huh. Coulda sworn it was Summerslam 89. And I figured Rarity would miss it if it wasn't mentioned.

I was told a story today, about the last time Greg Valentine worked a local indy. The indy runs out of a club attached to a bar. Valentine was the main event. Greg Valentine is not to be trusted.

Ergo, when main event time came, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine came to the ring, one hip against the guard rail, climbing it hand over hand, gradually slouching lower. When he came to the ring steps, he crawled up them, then rolled into the ring, and pulled himself up by the turnbuckles. He walked up to his opponent and whispered, "Don't knock me down," apparently not thinking this was something to discuss in the locker room beforehand. His opponent had to put together a match, on the fly, involving zero bumps for The Hammer. In the end, Greg waddled himself into a sitting position and draped one leg over his opponent's, forcing him to put himself in the figure-four and submit.

Moral: do not book Greg Valentine, or, if you do, arrange transportation from the airport to the arena and back, and do not allow him anywhere near booze.

Tito was born in Mission, Texas which is quite literally on the border with Mexico at the very Southern tip of Texas and had a 90+% population of Mexican descent.

He's Mexican AND American.
You can be both, you know.

Thank you for knowing more about this topic than me.

I googled it and the Hogan PPV is just a best-of and Okerlund interviewing Hogan's parents about how he's the best and greatest man.

The local gas station/convenience store had only a few wrestling VHS tapes in the late 90s. Summerslam 93, some Undertaker collection(a quick google suggests His Gravest matches), Wrestlemania X, and this. So for years, this was the oldest wrestling I'd ever seen. Loved it. I am really curious how this will bear out.

Was Bray Wyatt's spooky singing kid actually Jamison's son, or was that just a joke the pisscast made? I was never sure.
