I love it too...I watched some of the 87 episodes last year.

It offers something different to you as an adult...a lot of the humor flew over your head as a kid and you didn't really pick up on the amazing chemistry.


Some of the shows have commercials I haven’t seen since 1987 and my mind is blown

I watch old commercials a lot on YouTube. I usually watch the videos that will either have a load of commercials from a certain day or a block of commercials from a specific year.

I stick to the 80s although I've watched a few from the late 70s.

I know it sounds crazy to watch commercials like that but I love the nostalgia and it's a great time capsule. The commercials from the 20th century were so much better.

I really love old fast food commercials...

I don’t think I fully appreciated how good Monsoon was, and what a great foil he was for Brain, something he didn’t have in WCW. I forgot how good Monsoon was with Ventura too.

Those commercials literally took me back to my childhood. It was a trip watching them in “real time.”

Did you ever watch Tuesday Night Titans?

It was like the Tonight Show but instead of Johnny Carson and a bunch of celebs across the board...it's wrestling.


It flew under the radar as it was on USA...like Primetime. Tuesday did it no favors neither.

WWF was really flying on all cylinders at the time. This show deserved to be on one of the main networks.

They killed it too quickly. Imagine the potential that show had to hype up PPVs in the late 80s/early 90s.

He should've brought it back in the Attitude era.


Once again...it pisses me off that NWA never had programs like these shows.

Yeah, I remember that. They tried to bring it back with Heenan. The show that sticks out to me was when they brought on a porn actress Heather Hunter. It was hilarious.giphy.gif

A wacky blast from the past...



This is one of those incidents that half the country didn't even get to see...and instead of leading to a high profile feud, it got relegated to some house shows.

Ric Flair vs Magnum TA September 85

This is the main event at one of those NWA-AWA supercards under the Pro Wrestling USA banner.

This might be the last...or one of the last...times Magnum wrestled Flair. Like a few days later, Flair and the Andersons break Dusty's leg after the Flair/Nikita match setting up the Starrcade main event, and Magnum and Tully are about to kick their feud into high gear.

I missed out on wrestling growing up so I never got into it but Randy Savage was a great guest on Loveline. Some interesting wrestling talk. He’s there promoting his album Be A Man in 2003. Good show. Thought people here might enjoy

Yeah.  Bret just knew how to sell the psychology of wrestling better than anyone.  I rewatch the famous Wrestlemania match with Austin a few times a year.  And Bret knows how to work over a body part better than anyone.  Didn't matter who, Austin, Nash etc.
