  1. PatMan Picks Stampede Wrestling Classics. The British Bulldogs vs Cuban Commandos.

    Leave a Comment

    I loved watching tag team wrestling as a kid as there were some amazing and entertaining tag teams in many territories. Teams like the Road Warriors, Can Am connection, Killer Bees, Nikolai Volkoff & The Iron Sheik and the Hart Foundation top my list of top tag teams from the past. However one tag team sits above them all, even the mighty Road Warriors, as my personal all time favorite team. That team is the British Bulldogs. By the time the British Bulldogs reached the WWF they had already competed along side and often against each other many times in classic Stamped Wrestlings encounters. While their popularity (and bodies) grew bigger and bigger in the WWF, I already had a strong admiration for them and knew just how talented they were. After an exciting title run in the WWF only to lose the titles ironically to yet another Stampede Wrestling alumni tag team by the name of the The Hart Foundation, Davey Boy and Dynamite soon went to Japan for a successful tour of the orient and finally returned, full circle, back to Stampede Wrestling. By this time the combination of steroid abuse and brutal back injuries were really taking a lot out of the Dynamite Kid both inside and outside the ring. The British Bulldogs days as a team were numbered. Davey Boy would soon embark on a successful singles career returning to the WWF, WCW and even back in Stampede upon occasion. Lets look at one of the last matches for this legendary tag team as they compete for the Stampede Tag Team belts held by the evil and chronically cheating Cuban Commandos! Its a ring-a-ding-dong-dandy! See you next week,. But,in the mean time and in between time, check out Wonderpod videogame podcast on itunes and also some of the other stuff I do over at www.wonderpodonline.com !

  2. Nah mate, nothing hurts like buggery …


    Apparently, as this goes to print, I have been bought out. A deal has been made between Joe and ‘the Donald’, which means that this week’s column is bought to you by ‘the Donald’.


    The Bash is this weekend, so I suppose, i’d better preview it for the public.

    Jimmy Valiant vs Paul Jones in a Dog Collar match

    Expect the ‘Handsome’ one to win this one.

    Billy Graham, Konga the Barbarian and Abdullah the Butcher w/Paul Jones vs Manny Fernandez, Sam Houston and Buzz Tyler

    Even though their manager competed in the first match, I see Graham’s team winning. The size and craziness of the Butcher will be too much for the other team to handle.

    Ron Bass w/James J. Dillon vs Buddy Landell

    I see the future Horsemen manager playing  a part in this one. Ron Bass takes it out for me.

    Minnesota Wrecking Crew (c) (Ole and Arn Anderson) vs Buzz Sawyer and Dick Slater – NWA National Tag Team Championship

    I see the Andersons scraping this one out and retaining the gold.

    NWA World Tag Team Champions: Krusher Khruschev and Ivan Koloff vs the AWA World Tag Team Champions: the Road Warriors w/Paul Ellering

    I see the AWA Champs taking this one out in what will sure to be nothing short of a fight between these four guys.

    Magnum T.A. (c) vs Kamala w/Skandor Akbar for the NWA United States Championship

    Somehow, in some way, I can see Magnum retaining the gold. Possibly by a countout or a disqualification, but he will retain.

    Ric Flair (c) vs Nikita Koloff w/Ivan Koloff with David Crockett as Referee for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship

    Flair always seems to rise in the big occasions, and even with the help of Ivan, I can’t see Nikita winning. The dirtiest player in the game gtes the win.

    Tully Blanchard (c) w/Baby Doll vs Dusty Rhodes for the NWA World Television Chanpionship in a Steel Cage

    Blanchard has nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from the American Dream. One final Bionic Elbow and Dusty becomes champ.


    They had a PPV. Slammiversary Seven. It was a momentus occasion, considering seven seems to be the celebratory number in TNA. Anyways, let’s review the results shall we?

    Pre Show: the British Invasion def. Eric Young and Rhino

    Who cared?

    Suicide (c) def. ‘Paparazzi’ Alex Shelley, Randy Savage, Afro Thunder and Chris Sabin in a King of the Mountain match for the X Division Championship

    Nice to see Kaz is still in the mask (Note: Suicide isn’t kaz, it’s this guy.

    Daniels def. Shane Douglas for Daniels’ TNA roster spot

    Money on it, that Douglas is on this week’s iMPACT.

    Angelina Love (c) w/Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne def. Tara for the Knockouts Championship

    “…All the things she said, running through my head…”

    Abyss and Taylor Wilde def. Daffney and Raven w/Dr. Stevie in a Monster’s Ball Mixed tag match

    Didn’t they have one of these like last month?

    Rhino def. Team Canada (Bobby Roode and Coach D’Amore) in a Handicap match

    This match happened at the 2006 edition of Slammiversary, thus not relevant to this particular PPV

    Sting def. Matt Morgan for a spot in the Main Event Mafia

    As if Morgan was going to win

    Beer Money def. Team 3D (c) to win the TNA Tag Team Championship

    Justice has been served, one half of AMW and one fifth? one sixth? of Team Canada reclaim the gold. Best Tag team in wrestling. BEER! MONEY!

    Bob Backlund def. Alex Shelley

    This is from 2007, who’s handing me these notes?

    Kurt Angle def. Mick Foley (c), Jeff Jarrett, Gonorrhea, Taka Michinoku, Funaki, Christian Cage, Alzheimer’s Disease, Samoa Joe, Chris Harris, Scott Steiner, Doink the Clown, the Rock, Lance Hoyt, Lo-Ki, heel CM Punk, Taka Michinoku, Funaki, Vitali Klitschko, Vlade Divac, Chris Webber, Anfernee Hardway, Toby Keith, Christy Hemme, ABBA, Stephen Root, George Constanza, Trey Parker, Taka Michinoku, Funaki, Syphillis, John C. Reilly, Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, Bill Guerin, Alzheimer’s Disease, the Triumvirate of TN-Awesomeness,  Nash Bridges, Cheech Marin, Tecmo Superbowl, Wario, Sidney Crosby, ThinkSoJoe’s ex-wife, Mick Foley’s book ‘the Hardcore Diaries’, a Bookshelf, AJ Styles, Air Paris, the 1973 Chicago Bears, Terry Bradshaw’s hairpiece, Cactus Jack, Dude Love, Chainsaw Charlie and Alzhe … I forget in a King of the Mountain match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship

    Need I say more … ?

    That’s all for this week!
