Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

9/22/97. On Raw, Steve Austin stuns Vince McMahon and Mick Foley brings back Cactus Jack. On Nitro, Bill Goldberg debuts. Quite a night.

I remember seeing Goldberg's debut as it happened. Hugh Morrus got a full entrance, and then there was some rando that appeared to be an Austin ripoff who was just standing in the ring waiting for him. My immediate assumption was that they were just letting a JTTS go over an Austin look-alike for the laughs. In mid-match, I realized, "Oh, the Austin guy is gonna win." Still obviously had no idea that it was headed somewhere big.

Have only seen this match once in it's entirety. Only started watching WCW regularly long after Magnum's accident and Tully was more of a tag team than singles guy.

Didn't notice Hebner (I guess that's Dave?) was the ref here first time around.

No flying around or crazy moves. Just brutality and blood from two guys that made you believe they hated each other and were fighting over something important. It's everything I want my wrestling to be. Really stands up well to time. This is a top 10 all time wrestling match and something I'd recommend every wrestling fan see at least once.

In fact, I'd call Starrcade '85 one of the greatest wrestling events of all time. The only real drawback for me was that just about every match on the card was a bloodbath.

Then they jump straight to Clash of Champions '91 for Sting vs Rude.

That's it pre-1990? Disappointing.
This blew me away the first time I watched it. That finish had me wincing...

I'm pretty sure I had outright forgotten what a VHS tape looked like.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

I've been working my way through WWE 2000 and now on to 2001, but holy **** the ****in website is awful. I can watch one episode, then I get the "something went wrong" error for about 24 hours and there doesn't seem to be any way to fix it.

How can a company making that much money have this many holes in its package. **** this ****.

I get the "something went wrong" error a lot, too. However, refreshing the page gets rid of it for me. Weird.

Another thing I've noticed is that the site buffers a lot. I have fast Internet that's capable of watching HD videos on every other streaming service without interruption. WWE Network? Buffers at least once every show I try to watch.

Clearing browsing data and cookies/cache doesn't help.

They overhauled the interface at some point and in doing so certainly made it worse, but I haven't had the same bad luck when it comes to functionality issues.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

Never had heard Arn speak at length about that abortion of a promo by Nash. This video makes for an interesting listen.



It's clear that it upset him, but he's very classy about it.

Re: **WWE NETWORK THREAD**

I think there was a short conversation about it when the podcast came out about a year ago. He wasn't upset with Nash, but seems to hold a grudge on Terry Taylor.

I'm wracking my brain to think of anyone who is willing to speak kindly of Terry Taylor, and I'm coming up empty.

If he's that unlikable, I'm glad the Red Rooster happened to him.

Watching Jericho and Rock go toe to toe on both mic and in the ring is a joy
