At the 25:50 mark, we start discussing AEW heading to TBS in January 2022, and the introduction of a new one-hour TV program called “Rampage.”
At the 44:00 mark, we pay our respects to Jerome Young, aka New Jack, who passed away last week.
At the 1:01:05 mark, we take a deep dive into WWF’s In Your House: Beware of Dog 1 & 2 from May 1996. It was a ridiculous storyline from the start, but it got even weirder as Shawn Michaels was served before his match against the British Bulldog. We’ll talk all about it.
“Beware of Dog 1”
- Marc Mero (w/ Sable) vs. Hunter Hearst Helmsley
- WWF Championship Match: Shawn Michaels (c) (w/ José Lothario) vs. The British Bulldog (w/ Clarence Mason, Diana Smith, and Owen Hart)
“Beware of Dog 2”
- Caribbean Strap Match: Savio Vega vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin (w/Ted DiBiase)
- Vader (w/ Jim Cornette) vs. Yokozuna
- Casket Match for the WWF Intercontinental Championship: Goldust (c) (w/ Marlena) vs. The Undertaker (w/ Paul Bearer)
That and more on this week’s episode!
