As we approach Summerslam, I thought I'd check out WWE.com for information on this year's Summerslam. I caught a bit of Smackdown last night that left a sour taste in my mouth thanks to Chris Benoit doing the J-O-B to Randy Orton. However, this year's Summerslam actually has some matches that kind of intrigue me. Not to the point of actually getting cable and buying the PPV, but I digress.
So I surf around the Summerslam site and there's a history section. I click around to the good ol' Summerslam 1990. So if you go to http://www.wwe.com/shows/summerslam/history/1990/photos/, you get the picture posted here.
So what? It has the late great Mighty Hercules giving (the might as well be late great) Marty Jannetty a body slam. Well if you look closely underneath Paul Roma's armpit, who is that skinny chalky-colored kid in the purple shirt wearing a burger king crown raising his fist in approval with a slighty homo-erotic smile towards Hercules?
THAT'S THE SPOONMAN!!! (or Spoonboy?)
Yes, Spoonman at the ripe old age of 17 was there live at the very first WWF Summerslam pay-per-view to be held at the Philadelphia Rectum (I mean Philadelphia Spectrum). He was there with a couple other guys who aren't really important.
It's funny that you can watch that match online through the WWE.com match jukebox in the "Classic Summerslam Matches" section. Of course, it would be better if they put the Warlord vs. Tito Santana match up online, as Spoonman is the only one standing up and cheering where the rest of the crowd could give a shit.
Happy 15th Anniversary for Summerslam 1990! Oh how we miss those days when pay-per-views actually meant something.

Here's our first video podcast featuring highlights from all the NJHC/WWF pay-per-views. Many thanks to Rob Zombie for providing the music. I apologize for the large 40 MB file size, but I tried to compress it to 12 MB and it looked like shit. You can tell the difference in quality especially when you view it in full screen mode in iTunes.
Make sure you have Quicktime 7 installed.

We're also hoping to be published on Odeo. Pardon the required link below.

We'll try to back with a traditional audio podcast within the next week or two.

A lot of fans have been wondering where this week's WB4R podcast is. The promised video podcast will likely be delayed as your host, good ol' S.M. is going to be in Chicago (Ooohhh....WHAT A RRRUUUSSSHHH!!!!!) for the next 3 days.
On top of that, as much as I love the iTunes Music Store for supporting podcasts, I have to say WTF is taking so long to publish our podcast?!? I know my brother got his podcast published within a week of submitting his feed. I go back to the iTMS and when I resubmit the feed, all it says is: "The feed has already been submitted." OK? But am I rejected?!? Is it because I have another podcast? Is it because I said FUCK about 12 times on the last podcast? Do they have a problem with me playing all the music? First of all, I usually don't play the songs in their entirety, and when I do play them, I usually sing over them. If I don't hear anything soon, I may try changing hosts to try to "trick" the reviewers into publishing the podcast. I've already tried creating a new feed, but somehow the iTMS recognized it was the same thing and said that feed was already submitted.
What do you fans think?
