  1. DJ and Producer Andrew Weatherall, at the age of 56. https://metro.co.uk/2020/02/17/dj-producer-andrew-weatherall-dies-aged-56-pulmonary-embolism-12255135/
  2. It was Alvarez as part of a speech he was giving about Dave. He gave a conservative figure of 65 million words at the time, which was a couple of years ago and he's still pumping out 30,000-40,000 words a week in the Newsletter.
  3. Jindrak & O'Haire looked like they could be legit major players towards the back end of 2000 with their combination of size, athletic agility and innovation In October 2000 I thought they were in the three best matches in WCW that month, had a couple of great matches working opposite Rey & Juvi a few months earlier and had enjoyable fare against the Jung Dragons and also Jamie Noble & Evan Karagias. A real case of "what might have been" had Eric Bischoff ended up purchasing WCW as O'Haire was going to get skyrocketed had he done so.
  4. Subsonic II - Unsung Heroes of Hip Hop (1991)
  5. Caroline Flack, at the age of 40, due to an apparent suicide. First saw this on Twitter, but being reported elsewhere now https://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/breaking-ex-love-island-host-21504503?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar
  6. The Rock & Roll Express defeat the Heavenly Bodies and force them to leave Smoky Mountain Wrestling. The Bodies would subsequently return, but one of my favourite things from a Smoky Mountain project I did a number of years back. Everything about this is perfect for me.
  7. That'll teach me for taking what YouTube says for granted! I was sure I bought the album early 2000s but then thought I was getting confused and didn't bother to check. 1998 was when the album was released.
  8. Jurassic 5 - Concrete Schoolyard (2005)
  9. A current pet peeve is people who don't leave feedback on eBay. I like to know that what I've sent to someone has arrived safely as it gives me piece of mind that the item hasn't been lost in the mail. Also if I don't received feedback within a few days of the item being sent I start thinking that I'm dealing with some scammer who's going to claim that they've not received the item. Takes less than thirty seconds to do, is something I consider common courtesy, but fewer and fewer people tend to be leaving it these days (just over two weeks ago I sold five items on eBay, only one person has bothered to leave feedback).
  10. Maybe he has and has now turned his attention to David Bixenspan... I read about this on another board, but going after the way someone looks is cheap, but fuck "God's Gift" Cornette taking digs at someone else's appearance! I'l agree with him on one thing though, Bix is the biggest shit stirrer on "Wrestling Twitter" that I can think of. Any gossip or salacious news that's going down, you can bet your bottom dollar that Bix will be involved or talking about it, out with his wooden spoon whilst also fanning the flames.
  11. Indians in Moscow - Naughty Miranda (1983)
  12. From Survivor Series '87 there was Bam Bam Bigelow, Ken Patera, Rick Rude and One Man Gang. From Survivor Series '88, of all people, just the Red Rooster. Although it never went on last, the Hulkamaniacs vs Million Dollar Team received top billing in all the advertising for 1989. No-one in that match was making their first PPV appearance, however Zeus did make his PPV debut in the Summerslam main event. To tie in with @BomberPat's post, that means Zeus made both his WWF and WCW PPV debuts in main events. To go even more statto, providing there are no obscure dark matches that no-one knows about, Zeus only wrestled four matches in the WWF and WCW, every one of them in PPV main events. Similarly to the previous year, even though it never went on last, I'd say the Hogan match was the main event in 1990, which adds Tugboat to the list.
  13. Sam Cooke - Another Saturday Night (1963)
  14. The answer is the Wild Bunch, Joel Deaton & Billy Black... ...but because few will have heard of them I'll nominate PG-13 and the FBI. PG-13 were so much more than the Nation's rappers who got killed by the LOD on Raw and thrived in the USWA, ECW, latter day Smoky Mountain and were genuine highlights of WCW 'C' shows in 2000. They could brawl, do comedy, straight up Southern tag wrestling and few were better at riling an audience than J.C. Ice. By FBi, I'm referring to the Little Guido and Tony Mamaluke team. They had some absolute bangers against Mikey Whipwreck & Tajiri in ECW as well as Danny Doring & Roadkill, and Mamaluke was a phenomenal bump taker. Guido could hang with anyone on the mat, had a stiffness to his offense and like his partner, could sell his ass off. If anyone has the time or inclination, search out their series with the Unholy Alliance (from the 9/8 TNN show, the Anarchy Rulz match and the one from 12/24 Hardcore TV).
