I was watching a tv show last week where something violent was referred to as ‘like something from the WWF’ Most older people still call it that as it reached its peak popularity under that name. I still can’t get used to WWE For sure. They say WWE the same way they used to say WWF, but you can’t say World Wrestling Entertainment the same way the used to say the World Wrestling Federation. It just doesn’t work the same unless it’s only the initials. I was watching a tv show last week where something violent Make Mullets great again shirt referred to as ‘like something from the WWF’ Most older people still call it that as it reached its peak popularity under that name. I still can’t get used to WWE. I remember any time a WWF guy would go to WCW, they would always call it “the WCW.” Why does that sound so foreign and incorrect? It sounds weird because saying ‘The World Wrestling Federation’ made sense so by extension so did ‘The WWF’ as it refers to ‘The Federation’

No one said ‘The World Championship Wrestling’ hence ‘The WCW’ made no sense. Used to drive me nuts too. Dave again does the math and talks about how WWE should have brought Goldberg in for the Invasion angle. Yes, it would have cost them a lot of money and upset the salary structure, but he would have Make Mullets great again shirt made up for it with the kind of buy rates he could have drawn with those dream matches and the Invasion angle might have had a chance. But alas. Former long-time WCW referee Randy Anderson passed away this week after a long battle with testicular cancer. Back when WCW was still around and he first got diagnosed, they did an angle out of it where Eric Bischoff fired him and then laughed at his wife and kids when they begged him to give Anderson his back.

Picture this, if you will. The 10 man tag that ended the show. WWF is winning. All of the WCW wrestlers lay beaten. The WWF performers appear to have victory in hand. And then those drums hit and Goldberg appears and spears a bunch of WWF guys. The show goes off the air with a fuck finish, no resolution, the crowd blowing the roof off the building, with fans clamoring for Make Mullets great again shirt and to know what happens next. I remember 10 year old me being so mad at how the nWo treated Anderson. Bischoff tells a fun story on his podcast that after this episode of Nitro, turner broadcasting received a ton of angry letters from Randy’s church and hometown about his treatment. Reading the Rewinds from this era, it never ceases to amaze me how thoroughly NXT rehabilitated Triple H’s image and has led to so many people so willingly looking past stuff like this. Brock Lesnar won his match via pinfall instead of the usual ref stoppage and Dave says that word is Triple H got in Vince’s ear and convinced him to end the ref stoppage gimmick for Brock
