Bit of a random one and I'm not even that eager to see the matches (unless they're really worth watching), but I'm just curious to know was Hacksaw Jim Duggan ever any good?

I haven't seen any of his Mid-South stuff but I'm assuming that's where the good matches would be if they exist? Fair play to the guy, I don't hate him (other than for beating Austin in like 10 seconds in WCW) but he has never appealed to me and is bordering on the annoying most of the time.

Just wanted to know, as I've been trawling through every PPV/large event (WWF/WCW) event since 1987 (up to 1996 now) on the network and have seen more of Hacksaw than I had ever wished or planned to.

Yes. His stuff with DiBiase is great in Mid South, and he has a super brawl with Vader at Starrcade'94

The brawl with Vader was good stuff, I'll give you that. I really need to get on Mid South when I have the chance. I've seen very little but it's always been good and from what I've heard it's right up my street.

He had a really good match with Randy Savage on one of the Coliseum Videos too. I want to say it was either Greatest Hits or Mega Matches.

In Bret's book he says something about Taker being his last opponent in the WWF, what's he on about? Or have I missed something

I love ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ John Cena. His boss entrance music, no fucks-attitude, rap promos (homophobia aside) all entertain me greatly. However, I’ve only seen his match against Taker from Vengeance 2003 and his bit in the Rumble of 2004 (the pop when he comes out is mental) from this time.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for memorable matches of this era Cena I should watch?

 

I’m looking for stuff from before Wrestlemania 21 if possible, cheers!

 

Cena also had a good mini programme with Brian Kendrick/Spanky in 2003, a couple of really good matches with Eddie in August/September 2003, (one in El Paso with Eddie's official face turn, and one which was a parking lot brawl a few weeks later, a good match with Mysterio on November '03 and a really good match with Benoit in December '03
 
Also liked his stuff with Angle from No Mercy 2003 and against Angle and Show from No Way Out 2004. Not a big fan of him from his US Title run onwards until he won the belt at WM21, particularly his stuff with Dupree and Booker T.

You might be thinking of him referring to Taker as his last great match in WWF, either SummerSlam or One Night Only.

Certainty Undertaker would have been his last singles programme which went round house-shows etc. The Michaels match was a one-off. Perhaps that's what he meant.

Back on the subject of Duggan, I thought his lumberjack match for the IC title against Michaels on Raw in 93 was a lot of fun.

Wondering if anyone could help out here, couple of minor things bothering me and I don't own the DVD or the WWE Network. 

 

I was with a few others watching ECW Hardcore Heaven 95 on DVD last night and whilst I enjoyed it, one of the other people I was with decided not to shut up for the duration of the event. He wasn't even on about the event, or wrestling in general, but mobile phone batteries. I nearly went insane! 

 

Anyway: 

 

1) Right at the very beginning Styles pointed out some fan signs that said "Dancing Stevie Fanclub", he said "That's rare, you might also see", then mobile battery boy started off. It's been irking me since last night as to what he said. 

 

2) Later on in the event, Shane Douglas interfered in the Sandman vs Cactus Jack match. This was during his "leaving for WWF" angle. He decked The Sandman and the referee, to which Todd Gordon made a run in and tried to pick up the ref, he said something about "doing his job", but I missed half of it as mobile battery boy was talking again, any idea what he said? 

 

I know it's a couple of random questions, but you when something small just bugs you! 

 

Cheers.

He did a great job around that time. He put Yokozuna over great. Looked good in the singlet too.

I've kinda lost track with WWE's programming. I have the Network, what new programmes (NXT, Cruisers, 205) etc. are worth watching and when can you first catch them each week.

205 Live airs after Smackdown so realistically from Wednesday morning it's on demand here in the UK

If you enjoy the current Smackdown Live product then Talking Smack the same night is a good value supplement.

NXT airs for the first time at 8pm Wednesday nights which miiiiight be available at that time here. If not that's a Thursday morning on demand effort.

Those are the new in-ring efforts I keep up with

1) I think it's "They're probably yearning for Dance Fever reruns as well", a reference to: https://en.wikipedia...iki/Dance_Fever

 

2) He's basically grassing up Douglas and telling the ref to reverse the decision. Douglas then says he'll only stay if Gordon begs him to, at which point Gordon fires him.
