WWF Title Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart (60-minute Ironman Match)

Lows:

Mercifully, on WrestleMania Xii’s entire card there is really only one match that can be considered disappointing. I’m personally of the opinion that Squash Matches (while extremely useful promotion tools) have no place on a ‘Mania show. Having said that, the beauty of hindsight as turned this particular example into the most amusing squash match of all time.

10 Disturbing WWE Beatdowns That Are Hard To Watch

18 March 2016 1:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Pro wrestling is fake! Did you know that? Did You?

Good, now that we have that unsavoury bit out of the way, let’s talk about how truly goddamn brutal sports entertainment can be to its participants. Because, despite what your Captain Obvious friend tells you, the repercussions of a match can be significant and terrifying.

(See: Sid Vicious, Droz, Owen Hart, et al.)

At its best, sports entertainment is made to simply appear horrifyingly dangerous, while maintaining the safety of those performing it. Injuries happen, of course, but normally they stem from technically difficult maneuvers and otherwise precarious spots.

The garden variety pummelling that these guys give to each other is just a good blend of mild thumping and overacting. Again, it’s made to look much worse than it is.

But boy, sometimes they’re really good at making it look gruesome. Like…really good. Too good. »

10 Times WWE Misread Their Own Audience

17 March 2016 6:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Standing there adorned in his cape and crown, the 1995 King Of The Ring winner soaked up boos from the World Wrestling Federation’s fans. ‘King’ Mabel had been crowned, defeating the likes of The Undertaker and Savio Vega on his way to becoming only the third ‘King’ in the history of the event on pay-per-view. There was only one major problem, fans weren’t booing because they detested Mabel as a top heel, they were jeering because they hated the idea of him being in main events.

People recoiled instantly at the mere thought of seeing Mabel vs. Diesel at that year’s SummerSlam. Previous King Of The Ring winners like Bret Hart and Owen Hart had seemed deserved, due to their incredible skill inside the ring. Mabel was simply an extremely large man, a physical attribute Vince McMahon seemed to think would be enough to explain why he was headlining. »

18 Most Underrated Storylines In WrestleMania History

1 March 2016 11:09 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

For every “Stone ColdSteve Austin vs. The Rock and Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant, there are two or three underrated storylines that have helped to make WrestleMania the can’t-miss extravaganza it is.

They are the feuds and rivalries that have been overshadowed or lost in the shuffle underneath the programs that have come to define the event. While everyone remembers Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker at the 25th incarnation of the show, the sibling war between Jeff and Matt Hardy on the undercard was accompanied by a story as strong as any other on the broadcast, yet few talk about it today.

WrestleMania X is an epic show, with two legitimate five-star matches featuring Bret vs. Owen Hart and Razor Ramon vs. Shawn Michaels, but there is a very strong program supporting those two matches on the undercard, as Randy Savage and Crush brought their heated rivalry to a conclusion. »

8 Saddest Wrestling Retirements

18 February 2016 1:52 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Break out the tissues, because it’s time to reflect on better days gone by. Wrestling is one of the most physical sports in the world, and the toll it takes on the body has left larger than life characters in tatters by the time they retire. This article will look back at the saddest, showcasing some of the most beloved athletes who decided to—or in some cases, had to—stop doing the thing they loved.

Retirement is something that we all look forward to, but walking away from something you’ve dedicated the entirety of your life to can be one of the hardest decisions to make, and one of the toughest pills to swallow. These brave gentlemen had the wherewithal to do what was best for their futures; some with grand spectacles and celebrations of their accomplishments, and some walked away into the sunset. All of them were legends, »

16 WWE 80s Stars That Should Be Hall Of Famers

12 February 2016 12:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

It seems as though the WWE Hall of Fame is more and more regimented, in that the induction class has to follow a specific pattern: one headliner, one woman, one tag team, one celebrity, and three or four other inductees that include no more than one deceased performer (so as to not upset people, it seems).

Looking back at the 2004 and 2005 classes, you had quite the haul of 1980s greats going in, from Hulk Hogan to Rowdy Roddy Piper to Jesse Ventura to Sgt. Slaughter, and a host of others. Few WWE eras were as cool as the 1980’s Rock ‘n Wrestling era, and the first five or so years of Saturday Night’s Main Event. Goofy and over-the-top as the era could be, it still holds up today.

One issue with the rote formula for choosing the recent Hall classes has been the logjam created among the eighties stars that should be recognized. »

9 Reasons Triple H Needs To Stop Being An On Air Personality

11 February 2016 2:23 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Triple H is a really confusing man to get your head around in 2016. Half the time he is playing the bad guy boss as part of The Authority, and the other he’s playing the inspirational hands-on leader of Nxt.

Then there’s some other times when he’s playing a face general manager on Raw by announcing matches that the WWE Universe want to see, while some other times, and more recently, he’s the ‘tweener’ WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Quite frankly, Triple H is far too much. If you were asked by a former fan of WWE what The Game’s job title is these days, you’d need to set aside at least five minutes of your day to explain exactly what he does.

Hhh needs to pick one hat and wear it with pride. We’re all aware that the concept of Kayfabe is »

29 Wtf Moments From WWE Attitude Era Raw 1998 (Feb 9)

9 February 2016 12:51 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The February 9th, 1998 episode of Raw was the go-home show for the upcoming No Way Out (of Texas) pay-per-view, due to be headlined by an unsanctioned 8-man tag featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin, Owen Hart, Cactus Jack, and Chainsaw Charlie taking on D-Generation X.

As it turned out, Hbk’s nagging back injuries prevented him from wrestling on the show, and he was replaced by…Savio Vega. Yeah. Even so, Raw slid the chess pieces firmly in place ahead of WrestleMania, further heightening the feud between Austin and Dx, while the show’s remainder was comprised of the usual mix of hilarious, weird and lame that defines just about any Attitude Era episode of Raw.

And with the release of Sunny’s porno, Sunny Side Up, this week, what better time to consider all the sad difference that 18 years can make?

Here are 29 Wtf moments from the February 9th, »

10 Fun Facts About My Trip To WWE WrestleMania Xxvi

3 February 2016 2:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Kenny McIntosh

With the Royal Rumble in the history books and WWE on the road to WrestleMania, my countdown of WrestleMania trips leading up to the show in Dallas continues this week with my 2010 trip to see WrestleMania Xxvi in Phoenix, Arizona.

Since I’d never been to the West Coast for a prolonged period of time, my friends and I decided we’d go to San Jose, San Francisco, Phoenix and finish the trip off in Las Vegas. This meant going to see the go-home Raw before WrestleMania, all the festivities in Phoenix and catching the post-‘Mania SmackDown too.

It was a lot of wrestling in the space of 8 days, but we were confident that we’d have a great time.

One of the greatest parts of the trip was WrestleMania Axxess. WWE had really upped their game when it came to memorabilia and artefacts on show to the general public. »

10 Best WWF VHS Tapes Ever Released

1 February 2016 6:24 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

http://moviespics.rambleon.ru/data/2011-07-15/wwf-coliseum-video.jpg

The names Coliseum Home Video and Silver Vision conjure up nostalgic stirrings amongst wrestling fans who grew up in an era before YouTube and on-demand digital video streaming. Back in the halcyon days of VHS, the release of a brand new WWF video tape featuring unique never-before-seen match-ups was a cause of much excitement.

Down the years we were treated to such hidden gems as The Steiner Brothers vs. Bret & Owen Hart, Shawn Michaels & Diesel vs. Razor Ramon & 1-2-3 Kid, Roddy Piper vs. Rick Rude in a cage match, and far too many other forgotten classics too numerous to mention.

Coliseum and Silver Vision (and let’s not forget Avision Entertainment, Goodtimes Home Video, Columbia House and German distributor Polygram Video) were responsible for some absolute belters, tapes which any self-respecting collector simply must own. But which are the best? »

No Owen Hart Induction For WWE Hall Of Fame This Year?

27 January 2016 12:53 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

Ever since WWE initially announced plans for an Owen Hart DVD/Blu-ray set, which was released this past December, it seemed as if the company was laying the ground work for a possible WWE Hall of Fame induction.

Bret Hart has always been rather vocal about his desire to see his late brother inducted and honored during WrestleMania weekend. However, this is in stark contrast to Owen’s widow, Martha, who has always strayed from any connection to the wrestling industry following her husband’s tragic death on May 23, 1999.

Clearly, if Owen were to be inducted, Bret would be more than willing to accept the honor. Additionally, Owen could be inducted alongside his former stable mates if the Hart Foundation as a unit were inducted, similar to the Four Horsemen a few years back. However, it doesn’t appear that any of this will be happening in Dallas during WrestleMania 32 weekend. »

15 Worst Royal Rumble Entrants In WWE History

23 January 2016 5:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The 28-year history of the Royal Rumble match is rife with the greatest Superstars to ever lace a pair of boots. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, “Stone ColdSteve Austin, Triple H and John Cena have all cashed their tickets to WrestleMania via wins in the 30-man bout. Two-time Hall of Fame inductee, “Nature BoyRic Flair, captured his first WWE Championship in the match while Roman Reigns has the opportunity on January 24 to leave Orlando with his title intact.

As legendary as some of those competitors are, the Rumble match has also featured its fair share of duds, wrestlers who are either footnotes in history or were eliminated in rapid fashion, their legacies forever tainted by seconds-long stints in the most beloved gimmick match in WWE.
