WWF, 1993 In the 1990s, the WWF put out a VHS tape called, “Smack’em Whack’em”.

WCW, 2000 Like the rest of you, I was shocked to see Goldberg destroy Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Why such a short main event? Why have a part-timer come in and annihilate the company’s top draw? Nothing about the situation seemed to make any sense according to Booking 101. But I think I’ve finally figured out why what happened, Continue Reading...
