WWF, 1989 Years ago, wrestling promoters’ attitudes about sex appeal were a little… different. In “No Holds Barred,” Hulk Hogan’s bikini-brief clad buttocks made the villainess swoon and immediately come… to the side of good. Over in WCW, their “sexiest wrestler” contest was won by Tom Zenk. Even at the 1996 Slammy Awards (note to self: induct the 1996 Slammy Continue Reading...

WWE, 2003 By 2003, WWE had already established its brand extension (not a “roster split”), which extended its brand right down the middle, and was taking the daring step of charging for separate brand-exclusive pay-per-views.

Believe it or not, people who pay money to see matches in person hate it when they are subjected to fight sequences in remote locations that they don’t get to see first-hand. Whether it be the King of the Road match, the Hollywood Backlot Brawl (note to self: induct the Continue Reading...

WWF, 1999 We’ll all remember Mark Henry’s faux-retirement speech for a long time. With tears in his eyes, the World’s Strongest Man cut an emotional promo dedicated to his friends and family, only to blindside John Cena and goad him into a title shot. This wasn’t the first time that Mark had bared his soul to the public, however, as Continue Reading...
