They are re-published "as is" with relative commentary from when they were written. Enjoy! - Here's an interesting bit: Before Zen's copy of WM13, there's a copy of Bret Hart's tirade from Albany where he loses to Sid and then goes off on a curse-filled rant about getting screwed while Vince looks on. Eerily prescient of what would happen at Survivor Series later that year.

It seems no matter how many rants I pump out and how great everyone tells me they are, I always have one show hanging over my head like the Sword of Damocles: Wrestlemania X. Oh, sure, the rest are pretty good, but what did I think of Wrestlemania X?

- This is from an original Coliseum tape that I bought from a video store years ago, so it's clipped. Fun fact: I've never seen the full version of this show, because they stopped showing Wrestlemania on closed-circuit after VI, and PPV didn't come to Edmonton until Summerslam 92. This is also the last Coliseum version to be clipped, because from then on the PPV broadcast had to conform to the 2:40 standard.

The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 5

This Smark Wrestlemania Rant by Scott Keith is part of a series of reposts counting down to this year's Wrestlemania. They are re-published "as is" with relative commentary from when they were written. Enjoy! The SmarK Retro Re-Rant for WWE Wrestlemania V

For those who remember the fourth Wrestlemania as the WWE's version of Heaven's Gate in terms of length and money made, it's got nothing on the fifth one for sheer length. It didn't seem so long back when I first watched it, probably because I was only 15 and I had a much longer attention span for stuff like this back then. I originally ranted off the hacked-up Coliseum video version, which was missing an HOUR of stuff, so it's nice to finally have the full PPV version in all its 220 minute glory. The length might be taxing the storage systems of 24/7, however, because there's some pixellization every few seconds that's kinda annoying.

The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 4

This Smark Wrestlemania Rant by Scott Keith is part of a series of reposts counting down to this year's Wrestlemania. They are re-published "as is" with relative commentary from when they were written. Enjoy! The SmarK Retro Re-Rant for Wrestlemania IV - Live from Atlantic City, NJ. - Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon & Jesse Ventura. Ah, those were the days. - With Wrestlemania XX being slotted for a four-hour show, I figured we might as well take a look at the first time a show was scheduled for that long, and just how incredibly boring it could be. This show was of course set up by the infamous Andre the Giant title win and twin referees, featuring a 14-man tournament for the WWF title. The show is in the Trump Plaza Convention Center, which is less of an arena than a giant bingo hall, which makes for a bizarre atmosphere, to say the least. »»

The SmarK Rant for WWE Wrestlemania 3

This Smark Wrestlemania Rant by Scott Keith is part of a series of reposts counting down to this year's Wrestlemania. They are re-published "as is" with relative commentary from when they were written. Enjoy! The SmarK Retro Re-Rant for Wrestlemania III: Championship Edition

- This is another one that needed a redo, and with the "digitally remastered" version playing on 24/7 right now, this is as good a time as any. This version has pop-up video facts and cut-in interviews with the people involved, which is pretty neat and is something lacking on their DVD releases, especially historical ones. And hey, I work cheap and would gladly do text commentaries for all their catalogue releases in my spare time. At any rate, this is the complete PPV version, rather than the more briskly-edited Coliseum version most of us old farts are more familiar with.

The SmarK DVD Rant for The Spectacular Legacy of the AWA (Part One)

I'm such a sucker for these things, and in the grand scheme of things I think it's actually better that the WWE controls all the AWA footage, rather than the AWA themselves, leaving it less likely that someone will accidentally tape over something important with the new episode of Lost or something. »»
