Thanks to…

Sugar Dunkerton, Pinkie Sanchez and Beyond Wrestling for the nice intro

TJ Murphy and for the intro and paying my bills!

Joe Petrow for Al Snow footage

Tri.Moon for more lovely Off The Air footage.

BillxBillZero for the Puro

RobViper for the Lucha

/wooo/ for further lucha

Graham Stark for the ending he sent me nearly a year ago.

A few names I’ve missed from clips sent ages ago. Very sorry, send me a PM if your name is missing.

The quest to empty my hard drive of miscellaneous clips continues, hence the ‘vintage’ medley of clips. Expect more in the next few videos and my apologies if a few of them have been seen before…some of them are literally two years old.

Taboo Tuesday 2005 was a fun PPV.

    Oh lawd that was a lot of Matt Hardy and Sabu… to nobody’s surprise. Also, I was sitting through the whole Del Rio wrong-leg-being-wrapped thing thinking “Botchamania here we come.”

  • Desmond348

    Does anybody remember what was so momentous about Hardy vs. Snitsky that it required two referees?

    • don’t blame Snitzky… wasn’t his fault

    • not sure on it, but it could have been a Smackdown vs. Raw deal.

  • tmacman

    Billy Gunn is running for the House of Representatives? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?!

  • pxk

    ‘Wow! A 12 minute video’ your thinking.


    • lee dellbridge

      no im thinking ”wow, someone cant do maths.”

      15 minute video – 2 minute intro = 13 minutes. the perfectly acceptable length.

      and the 2 mins intros are not new. dont like them? skip it!

  • Eddster

    Thanks Maffew I really needed this right now. Got a couple of projects driving me nuts which I could accept if I wasn’t at freaking jury duty for the second day in a row. Awesome work as always

  • my sentiments about Brodus Clay exactly

  • JS

    One of the best BM endings in a long time, hahahahaha. Simple yet so effective.

  • 1…2

    That is likely my new favourite ending. Absolutely bloody hilarious.

  • Largo

    As always, great work Maffew! I really dont mind some older footage, infact I find it fun to see some older stuff.

    Did nobody else notice that Del Rio’s leg was wrapped (or braced) when they showed the Main Event clip too? And on commentary they even said “You may notice Del Rio has his leg wrapped up, let’s go back to Wednesday so you can see why,” *cue chop block to wrong leg*. Or the first time they showed the “Brock Lesnar vs Triple H Contract Signing” graphic they played Jerry Lawler’s music.

  • Aviel

    Dat ending…

    Music synced perfectly.

  • How is Brodus Clay an actual thing?

  • Is that the same Graham Stark from Loading Ready Run?

  • Jamie

    To be fair (ish), lucha works to the opposite side of the body than American pro wrestling — which means that while in the US the ‘injured body part’ is almost always the left, in lucha it’s almost always the right.

    Not an excuse (he should have been paying more attention) but at least a possible explanation.

  • Taste The Rainbow

    Dat Ending


    You should realise that Alberto Dorito’s opposite leg was most likely wrapped up to work the marks, brother. Commentary can draw attention to the leg and sell the injury while his opponents target the wrapped up (and healthy) leg, because the knee that The All American American attacked probably ACTUALLY got injured (judging by Del Rio’s “selling…”) At least; enough for Del Rio to want people to target the healthy one for a while.

    Where’s the audio at 13:56 from?

    I’m in tears because of the Ric Flair bit
