10/9/2019
More

142: Clash of the Champions XII-Mountain Madness

10/2/2019
More
Want to see a great professional wrestling show? Sorry, this ain't it. However, it did have Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Sting, the Steiners, Stan Hansen, the Z-Man, the Black Scorpion (at least one of them), Tommy Rich, the Freebirds in (gulp!) Confederate Flag face paint and a very handsome, coiffed Tony Schiavone. Coming to you live from the very sparse Asheville, North Carolina, Civic Center where many fans came dressed as steel chairs, it's Clash of the Champions XII, Mountain Madness! Support...

141: WWE In Your House-Mind Games

9/25/2019
More
The WWF (WWE) may have been losing in the ratings war in September 1996, but the 10th In Your House hit a home run with the main event featuring Mankind against Shawn Michaels. Mick Foley turned in one of the best performances of his career against one of the greatest workers of all time. Additional, the Undertaker met Goldust, the team of Owen Hart and the British Bulldog took on the Smoking Gunns; plus Jim Cornette, Mark Henry, Jerry "The King" Lawler and a lot more. It's a freak show...

140: WCW Fall Brawl 1993

9/18/2019
More
By the results of the Wrestling Observer Readers' Poll, this was the one of the worst WCW Pay Per Views of all time. It began with Ricky Steamboat against Lord Steven Regal, and with the exception of Ric Flair against Rick Rude and a Cactus Jack against Yoshi Kwan match, it had such duds as Ice Train, Charlie Norris, the Equalizer, Big Sky and a War Games highlighted by the Shockmaster and Road Warrior Animal not getting in the ring. Sheesh!! Maybe a few "Tony Reads Rap" interludes will help...

139: WCW Clash of the Champions VIII-Fall Brawl '89

9/11/2019
More
Well, let's just put a bag over someone's head and murder them! And that's what WCW tried to do with the Terry Funk and Ric Flair feud. Regardless, this was a good show, even though the public outcry about the final angle had WCW staffers scrambling to find the right answer. But, anytime you have Sting, Flair, the Great Muta, the Steiners, the Road Warriors and the SST in an event, you're bound to have some good wrestling. So, enjoy as the guys sit back and watch Fall Brawl '89! Plastic bag...

138: ECW Anarchy Rulz 1999

9/4/2019
More
As only the guys can do, WHW this week takes a look back at another fun ECW PPV event. It was the last match for Taz in ECW and even though he was viewed at the beginning by the fans as a "sell out" and traitor, he was eventually honored and cheered as he lost the ECW title and shook hands with Mike Awesome at the end. Also Rob Van Dam goes up against Balls Mahoney and Raven and Tommy Dreamer in a very reluctant tag team match. Plus, not to be outdone, there are appearance by Francine and...

137: WCW Monday Nitro 08-25-97

8/28/2019
More
WCW was red hot. Nitro was live from the stronghold of the Four Horsemen, Columbia, SC. It was the perfect place for Arn Anderson to give a farewell speech and to offer his "spot" to Curt Hennig. Come back in time with Conrad and Tony to August of 1997. And even though Sting is in the rafters holding a motherfucking vulture, it's a lot of fun. See Tony and Conrad LIVE in Wayne, NJ on September 28th, 2019. For tickets and information go to tonyandconradlive.com...

8/21/2019

It's the "Kiss Nitro" with the debut of The Kiss Demon...but...he's not on this show. That's right, the WWE apparently could not use the likeness and music of Kiss, so it was edited out. But does that stop Tony and Conrad? No! We still will go back to bring you Tony's memories of the event including what happened when Ace Frehley was mistaken backstage by Doug Dellinger. Plus, there is plenty of wrestling including Hogan against Sting and a parade of chokeslams from Sid Vicious. Get ready...

135: WCW New Blood Rising 2000

8/14/2019
More
WITHOUT QUESTION, WCW was a coffin on roller skates in 2000 and as one of the worst Pay Per Views ever, New Blood Rising hit maybe a low watermark. Has there ever been a WCW event with so many matches rated as duds? It was so bad that the mud wrestling match between Major Gunns and Ms. Hancock was probably one of the best matches on the card. Not to be outdone, there was Judy Bagwell on a forklift, Evan Karagias and a whole slew of clusterf***s. A sad time in WCW and a look back from your...

134: WCW Road Wild 1998

8/7/2019
More
From the Black Hills of South Dakota comes the Eric Bischoff vanity project! It's Jay Leno, Kevin Eubanks, Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, the NWO Black and White and the NWO Wolfpack. Plus, Chris Jericho, Juventud Guerrera, Stevie Ray, Chavo Guerrero, The Dancing Fools and a lot of foolishness! One of the worst WCW Pay Per Views EVER and it was one of those events that hastened the demise of WCW. You ready to be a biker, gang? (get it)? Then great ready for Road Wild from Sturgis. See Tony and Conrad...

133: Clash of the Champions XXXI 08-06-95

7/31/2019

We take you back to when the Clash of the Champions was...BAD. Here we have Vader against Flair and Arn, the Renegade against Paul Orndorff, Sister Sherri getting a bump on the head and falling in love with Col. Robert Park and...wait for it...Hulk Hogan entering the Dungeon of Doom. WTF? So enjoy the Clash, one year before the birth of the NWO from the exact same arena in Daytona Beach. AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE WATCH-ALONG WWE has revamped their Network. So the show is kind of difficult...

132: Great American Bash '89

7/24/2019
More
It's one of WHW's most requested shows. The 1989 Great American Bash featuring Ric Flair against Terry Funk, Ricky Steamboat versus Lex Luger, a War Games Match, Sting squaring off with the Great Muta, Paul E. against Jim Cornette in a Tuxedo Match and plenty more. It was fun with plenty of action and plenty to talk about. We take you back, once again, to the Jim Herd era of WCW. The Great American Bash 1989!!!! See Tony and Conrad LIVE in Wayne, NJ on September 28th, 2019. For tickets and...

131: WCW Bash at the Beach 1997

7/17/2019
More
Nine matches from the heyday of WCW; the year of 1997. It was one year removed from Hulk Hogan becoming "Hollywood" Hogan and the NWO was in full force. Do you remember? Some matches were good, and some bad; however, no one could argue against the facet that Dennis Rodman was pretty darn good in the main event with Hogan against Lex Luger and the Giant. Plus, Kevin Sullivan against Chris Benoit, Ultimo Dragon versus Chris Jericho, the Steiners meeting Chono and the Great Muta and Scott Hall...

Do you like when wrestling was REAL? Did you like the Bill Watts era of WCW? Well, you going to love this one. A show loaded with talent: Steve Austin, Rick Rude, MADUSA!!! Also, Terry Gordy, Dr. Death Steve Williams, Barry Windham, Dustin Rhodes and many, many others. The bulk of the program is a tournament for the World Tag Team Title, but there is also a great match featuring Sting against Vader for the title. Conrad and Tony go into the wayback machine and pull out the Great American...

Tony and Conrad take you back to when wrestling on television was RAW...and we are not talking about the three hour WWE show. They take you back to Jim Crockett Promotions flagship show: Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. The company had just aired its first Starrcade the November before and were about a year away from their first ever show on TBS. From the dark arena, to the off center "hard camera," there was nothing quite like a JCP show. The territories in pro wrestling were coming to...

JR! Missy Hyatt! The Steiners beating guys up! Paul E. and Terry Funk! Ricky Steamboat Flyin' Brian, Ric Flair and much more. What was there not to like about the Turner product in 1989 (Well, okay the management). But in the ring they were doing some great things. Conrad and Tony take you back to the summer of 1989 where life was simple and the wrestling was awesome.

127: WCW Monday Nitro 06-28-1999

6/26/2019

Coming to you from Jimmy Famous Seafood in Baltimore, this is a story of how WCW began "talking" itself out of a good wrestling show. The wrestling was pretty good, but the talk...talk...talk actually ran this show into the ground. It was live from the United Center in Chicago and it featured David Flair getting his shot at WCW World Champion Kevin Nash. Tony, Conrad and special guest Casio Kid wrap up a very long weekend of live shows in St. Louis and Baltimore with a look back and another...

Honestly, was there anything better that WCW Monday Nitro in 1997? Wait...don't answer that! Yes, the show had its ups and downs, but there is no denying the amount of wrestling talent that was on display every Monday LIVE on TNT. From Hogan, Flair, Savage, Sting, Luger, the Giant, DDP, Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, Hall, Nash, X-Pac, Konnan, Chono...WOW! Conrad and Tony take you back for a very unorthodox look at a version of Monday Nitro that you may never forget! See Tony...

6/12/2019

What Happened When takes you back to June 14, 1989 in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The temperature in the building was incredibly hot and the wrestling...well...got slower and slower as the searing heat baked the participants and crowd. Many left before the end of the show and missed a pretty good bout between Ricky Steamboat and Terry Funk. It was kind of a shitty finish, but still a good match. But the crowd, made up of mostly military, was hot for the Freebirds, the Midnight Express, Sting...

6/5/2019
More
On April 19, 1998, World Championship Wrestling took it's traveling circus to Denver for Spring Stampede. And even though it was well received among wrestling fans at the time, it was still in the wake of the "Starrcade debacle" and the juggernaut they created was starting to show some "wear and tear." It's Hogan and Nash against Roddy Piper and the Giant in a "baseball bat on a pole match;" Raven against Diamond Dallas Page in a Raven's Rules match for the US Title and Sting vs the Macho...
