I never really noticed until listening to a lot of these review shows just how annoying it must have been to be booked against Jim Duggan, who rarely gave anyone a clean win over him. He was an over guy for sure but nowhere near a level where he should have been “protected” and you could argue he actually made things worse as 9 times out of 10 he looked like an idiot or sore loser by using his 2x4 to cost himself a match.
Anyway great review guys, I remember renting this video when I was young and loving it as it was probably the second show I saw the WWE do in the UK (I ordered One Night Only as just got into wrestling in 97) but to this day I’m still a fan of them doing shows over here as it gives them such a different vibe.

Heenan and Monsoon were so great together. It’s so much better having announcers that are more like people you’d want to watch the show with in your living room, rather than guys just constantly shilling like a non-stop commercial like it is now.

Also, one of my favorite part of watching old wrestling over new wrestling is that old stuff doesn’t have the constant jump cuts for every move. Such a more viewer friendly experience.
