The SmarK Rant for TNA Impact! - January 4, 2010

"Time For a Change"

- Live from Orlando, FL.

- Your hosts are Tenay & Tazz.

- Since I get Spike and not the Score (the channel that carries RAW in Canada), curiosity got the best of me and I decided to watch Impact tonight, because I figure a spectacular trainwreck is just as good as a great show as far as entertainment value goes. We shall see.

The SmarK DVD Rant for Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows (Repost)

The SmarK DVD Rant for Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows At one point in Paul Jay's fantastic documentary about Bret Hart's last days in the WWF, Bret comments that the promotion had become like a prison to him.  A prison where he had the nicest cell and where he had the run of the place thanks to his relationship to the warden, but at the end of the day he was still locked up.  That attitude kind of hangs over the whole film, as we are seeing the last vestiges of the creative spirit trampled out of Bret by a business that is clearly passing him by. »»

The SmarK Retro Repost for Bret Hart: The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be

(Apparently this Bret Hart guy is all the rage right now among the kids, so here’s a repost of the DVD rant from 2004, with some formatting and spelling errors fixed)

The SmarK DVD Rant for Bret Hart: The Best There Is, The Best There Was, and The Best There Ever Will Be.

So here's how this is gonna work -- I've of course been hit by endless requests for this DVD, but didn't get the DVD until recently. I managed to watch the documentary portion previously and posted thoughts to the blog, but everyone wanted rants for the matches included, too, and I didn't really feel like going back to take notes on the documentary portion to do the entire DVD set. So the documentary portion is going to be a guest rant by longtime blog contributor and friend of mine Princess, who covered most of what I would have written about it anyway, and then we'll hit the matches with fresh rants for stuff I haven't done before or haven't done in a long time. For time reasons and for reasons of efficiency, I copied stuff where my opinions haven't changed or where an updated version wasn't going to be different enough to warrant a redo.

The SmarK Legacy Rant for Monday Night RAW - January 3 1994

- Taped from Poughkeepsie, NY, for the fourth week in a row. Now I've been to some brutal TV tapings in my time, so I can imagine how bored and burned-out the poor crowd would have been by the 18th hour of programming.

The SmarK Legacy Rant for Monday Night RAW - December 20 1993

The SmarK Legacy Rant for Monday Night RAW - December 20 1993

- Taped from Poughkeepsie, NY.

- Your hosts are Vince & Shawn Michaels. I guess they're doing a rotating host deal until they can find a permanent color commentator. That combination would rule today, actually.

Lots of star power this week, and a new color commentator joins Vince McMahon as they search for Bobby Heenan's permanent replacement. »»

The SmarK DVD Rant for Hell in a Cell

The SmarK DVD Rant for Hell In A Cell

- I'm talking about the 3-disc DVD set here, not the recent PPV. I know this is an older set, but I found it on Ebay for like $3 and I've been wanting to work in a proper review for a while now.

- Hosted by Mick Foley, fittingly enough.

The SmarK Legacy Rant for Monday Night RAW - October 25 1993

RAW itself this week isn't terribly notable aside from setting up a tag team title match later on, but there's a bonus match that's VERY interesting. »»

The SmarK Anthology Rant for WWF Wrestlemania VII

The SmarK Retro Rant for WWF Wrestlemania VII

- Yeah, this is a kind of a random choice, I know, but I've been meaning to do the full Anthology version of the show for months now and this is as good a night as any. Since we didn't have PPV in Edmonton at the time, this is the first time I've ever seen anything besides the heavily edited Coliseum version of this show.

- Live from the Los Angeles Coliseum LA Sports Arena

- Your hosts are Gorilla Monsoon and a rotating cast of color commentators, mainly Bobby Heenan. First up is Hacksaw Duggan, introduced with entrance music dubbed over where he had none previously. I don't get that.

The SmarK Legacy Rant for Summerslam Spectacular 1993

- Taped from Poughkeepsie, NY, somewhere around August 16 1993. Probably that night.

- Your hosts are Jim Ross and Gorilla Monsoon. Huh.

- I'm delighted that this show, hyped for three weeks on the 1993 RAWs, is in fact available under Mike Rotundo's "Where are they now?" page. Gotta love the WWE's video library.
