    1996


    WWF Raw Bowl. This was a football themed episode of RAW with a four-corners elimination match. It featured The Smoking Gunns vs. Owen Hart & Yokozuna vs. Razor Ramon & Savio Vega vs. Sid & The 123 Kid. The canvas was made to look like a football field and each team wore a football jersey. Also each team was allowed one time out at any point during the match. And of course with Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler on commentary we got plenty of football puns and references. This is the only 1996 episode of Raw that is not featured on the WWE Network.

    1987


    Hulk Hogan defends the WWF title against Paul Orndorff in a steel cage on Saturday Night's Main Event. The match is not without controversy as Hogan and Orndorff both exit the cage at the same time with each being declared the winner by different referees. The match is ordered to continue and Hogan goes on to win.

    STAMFORD, Conn., March 23, 2001 – World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: WWF) today announced its purchase of the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) brand from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS Inc.), a division of AOL Time Warner.

    The purchase of WCW creates a tag team partnership with the World Wrestling Federation brand that is expected to propel the sports entertainment genre to new heights.

    In keeping with the company’s strategic alliance with Viacom, new WCW programming is anticipated to air on TNN in the near future. The possibility of cross-brand storylines and intrigue, however, may start as early as Monday night during WWF Raw Is War on TNN and the final performance of WCW Monday Nitro Live on Turner Network Television (TNT).

    The binding agreement provides World Wrestling Federation Entertainment with the global rights to the WCW brand, tape library, and other intellectual property rights.

    “This acquisition is the perfect creative and business catalyst for our company,” said Linda McMahon, Chief Executive Officer of World Wrestling Federation Entertainment. “This is a dream combination for fans of sports entertainment. The incendiary mix of World Wrestling Federation and WCW personalities potentially creates intriguing storylines that will attract a larger fan base to the benefit of our advertisers and business partners, and propel sports entertainment to new heights.”


    “The acquisition of the WCW brand is a strategic move for us,” said Stuart Snyder, President and Chief Operating Officer for World Wrestling Federation Entertainment. “We are assuming a brand with global distribution and recognition. We are adding thousands of hours to our tape library that can be repurposed for home videos, television, Internet streaming, and broadband applications. The WCW opens new opportunities for growth in our Pay Per View, live events, and consumer products divisions, as well as the opportunity to develop new television programming using new stars. We also will create additional advertising and sponsorship opportunities. In short, it is a perfect fit.”

    On this date in history, one of the greatest Manias ever.....



    WrestleManiaXIV.jpg



    I still remember watching this at my godfather's house. I never anticipated a wrestling event more in my life. Great card from top to bottom. Even the tag team battle royal and light heavyweight title matches were entertaining.


    Triple H vs Owen with Chyna handcuffed to Sgt Slaughter

    Marc Mero/Sable vs Goldust/Luna - Sable's in ring debut

    Rock vs Shamrock - match didn't last long, but it was essentially the end of one of the most underrated rivalries of the Attitude Era.

    Dumpster match for the tag titles - one of the best WrestleMania tag matches ever. A lot of great spots before the harcore title or TLC

    Undertaker vs Kane - the pay off to maybe the greatest build up for a match ever. As a kid, Kane truly looked indestructible and had me shook. It took 3 tombstones to (barely) put him away back when kicking out of finishers still meant something

    HBK vs Austin with special enforcer Mike Tyson - The Austin era begins. Couldve been an even better match if both guys were healthy, but still one of best main events in Mania history. And the ending with Tyson was perfect. "Right hand! Right hand! Down goes Michaels!" - JR
