  1. Discount Bin Review: Wrestlemania 9 (DVD)

    Our Celebration of Professional Wrestling continues! This comes to the BWF courtesy of Jonkind over at Wonderpod-Online

    Everyone knows of my passion for all things professional wrestling. I’ve watched the good, the bad, and I can put a positive spin on pretty much anything. Wrestlemania is of course, the biggest WWF/E show of the year; the grandest stage of them all, the showcase of the immortals, blah, blah, blah. Well back in April of 1993, the WWF was in the middle of a pretty low period in terms of popularity. Hulkamania was fading fast and there was a severe lack of popular, established talent to fill that void. Bret Hart had been inserted as the top face champion and while popular, I don’t think he was the muscle bound, high intensity, all-American super-hero that Vince thought they needed at the top. Personally I loved Bret Hart – the hardworking ring-technician, a victorious underdog in a roster full of puffed up giants and grunts. Proving everyone who thought you had to be a brick shithouse to be successful wrong. At least that’s what I thought.

  2. Conspicuous by his absense…


    I’m sure you guys may have noticed that, aside from my usual Sunday afternoon post, yours truly has been absent from BWF this week. Truth be told, I’ve been fighting an uphill battle with New York State over boring, non wrestling related stuff for the past two weeks, and I’ve just been burnt out. I’ve not only taken a few days away from BWF, I haven’t even watched ECW this week, nor have I watched the last 30 minutes of RAW.  I promise you a SmackDown review this week, which will either be posted before the show even airs in the US, or sometime this weekend.

    Anyways, while I’ve been slacking around here, a new columnist (who still owes me for the window he broke when he hurled that brick with the mysterious note attached last week) made his debut.  Legend Killer is a wrestling fan from Australia who will grace us with his presense every Wednesday with his new column.  As far as I know, he is not Nathan Jones.  Though how awesome would that be?  We could ask him questions like, “how does it feel to see that the fact that you were technically The Undertaker’s tag team partner at WrestleMania XIX be completely ignored?”

    There’s yet another new skin available for BWF.  It’s an nWo inspired theme called “Back In Black.”  Not only is the name also the title of an awesome song by AC/DC, it’s also the title of the WWE released nWo DVD back in 2002.

    Finally, starting next Monday, it’s WrestleMania 25 week here at BoredWrestlingFan.  There will be a new WrestleMania themed article every day starting Monday and leading right through the event on Sunday.  Drowgoddess will be checking in with reports of the festivities around Houston leading up to the event as well.

    That’s all for right now, if you still need your RAW fix, check out James Guttman’s RAW Insanity, and for ECW coverage, check out Mike Rickard’s Real Time Review, both courtesy of WorldWrestlingInsanity.com.
