Coliseum Classics Volume 1: WWF Mega Matches
Welcome everyone to the Coliseum Classics Review. My name is and I will be your host as we go back and review some of the best video tapes ever released….Coliseum Videos. These were a big part of my childhood and I still enjoy going back and watching them today. First up we are going to review the 1991 release of WWF Mega Matches.
Sean Mooney opens up the video saying if you like things that are small then you won’t like this tape. He says we have BIG action in stored for you on this Coliseum Video release. He introduces the first match between Tito Santana and Earthquake.
Promo by Tito Santana
Tito Santana says that everyone wants to see Mega Matches so he is going to bring you a mega match between himself and Earthquake right here on Coliseum Video. Tito says he is going to put the Earthquake down.
Match 1: Earthquake s. Tito Santana
Earthquake is accompanied to the ring by Jimmy Hart. While Quake is walking down the aisle Mooney mentions that the camera was shaking a little bit. Great way to get Earthquake’s size over. Mooney and Hayes both say this is a Mega matchup and Coliseum Video is the only place to see it. They start off the match with a collar and elbow tie up. Earthquake throws Tito into the corner to show off his strength. Tito tries to get Quake in an arm bar and Quake blocks it and throws him down. Quake then poses and shows off his muscles. This is such a heel move and I love it every time Earthquake did it.
Tito comes in and gets a headlock on the Quake but Earthquake picks him up and throws him off like he’s a piece of garbage. Tito tries to go to the back but Earthquake backs him into the turnbuckle. Earthquake goes for a big elbow but Tito gets out of the way and lays in a few lefts and rights. Tito then starts to work the arm and gets him a few arm wrenches. Typical Tito here working an arm. Don’t understand why you wouldn’t work the leg when a guy out weighs you by over 200+ pounds.
Earthquake gets out of the arm bar and Santana tries to hit him with a shoulder block off the ropes but Earthquake doesn’t even move. He tries again and again Quake doesn’t move. Santana goes for a body press but Earthquake catches him and body slams Tito. Earthquake goes for a big elbow but Tito Santana gets out of the way. Tito goes back to the arm and starts working it over. Earthquake gets tired of all the work on the arm and decides to kick Tito in the midsection to gain control of the match. Earthquake does a jumping kick to the lower back of Tito. He then picks up Tito and slams him back first into the turnbuckle.
Earthquake continues to work on the lower part of the back with a clubbing arm to the lower back. Earthquake picks Tito up and nails him with an atomic drop. Earthquake gets Tito in his favorite rest hold and thats the bear hug. Tito climbs to the middle rope while inside the bear hug and starts to lay in the right hands to Earthquake. Tito then bites the face of Earthquake to break free of the bear hug. They exchange lefts and rights until Tito gets control. He then hits him with 2 standing drop kicks then the flying forearm and it finally knocks Earthquake down. He goes for the cover and gets a 2 1/2 count.
Tito goes for another drop kick and Earthquake brushes it out of the way. Earthquake then picks him up and lays him out with the power slam. He then nails him with a big elbow drop. Earthquake then gets the tremors going and nails him with the Earthquake splash but Tugboat comes out of no where and nails Earthquake with some heavy blows in the corner. Dino Bravo makes his way to the ring to help out Earthquake with Tugboat. Tito gets up and we have a 4 man brawl in the ring. Tito is working over Bravo while Earthquake is working over Tugboat. Honky Tonk Man and Greg Valentine come out to help Earthquake and Dino Bravo as well. All 4 men work over Tugboat in the center of the ring after Tito Santana gets thrown out of the ring. All 4 men body slam Tugboat then Earthquake tries to nail him with the Earthquake splash but Jim Duggan comes out with the 2×4 and sends everybody packing.
This was your typical dark match where neither guy took the L so they could both look strong as they go on. Earthquake got in all of his offense that he usually got in and so did Tito. Tito did quite well with the size difference and there really wasn’t anything wrong with the match at all. It was a little slow at times but nothing major. The ending was a cluster but I guess it was necessary if you want to keep both guys strong and possibly continue the feuds going forward. All in all not a terrible match but probably one you can skip.
Promo by Big Boss Man
Boss Man says that Heenan started this by talking about his momma. Boss Man says he is a proud man and one thing he holds very near to his heart is his family. He says that his momma is one of his most prized possessions and punk you hurt her feelings. Boss Man says he has went through every member of the Heenan family and now it’s his chance to teach Bobby Heenan a lesson about manners and respect. He says that Heenan has hurt the Big Boss Man and now it is his time to hurt him.
Match 2: Big Boss Man vs. Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan
Heenan steals the microphone from the ring announcer and says that everything he has said about Boss Man’s mom was a mistake and that she is a sweet old lady. He says that he just got off the phone with her and she is doing well in Cobb County Georgia. Heenan says he sent her 5 dozen red roses then the Boss Man’s music interrupts him. Boss Man comes out with the ball and chain and the night stick. While he is walking to the ring Heenan is begging and pleading for forgiveness. Heenan says he just got off the phone with his mother and that he said them just to upset the Boss Man. Heenan says if he was lying to him then he wouldn’t have shown up for the match. He says he can’t out wrestle the Boss Man or out fight him. Heenan says that Boss Man’s mom wants to talk to her and that the phone in the back behind the van is off the hook and she wants to talk to him. Heenan says he is sorry and that he made a mistake. Boss Man acts like he is going to the back to talk to his mom but he comes back into the ring.
Heenan takes the microphone and smokes Boss Man with it in the face. Boss Man lays in a right hand and knocks Heenan down. Boss Man puts his foot on the throat of Heenan and gets the 3 count. It last all of 30 seconds. Boss Man picks up the ball and chain and drops it right on Bobby Heenan’s chest. Mr. Perfect comes out from the back and takes his towel and starts to choke out the Big Boss Man. Perfect then nails Boss Man with 5-6 right hands then he tries to irish whip him. Boss Man reverses it and nails Perfect with a big boot and then throws him over the top rope.
There was nothing to this match at all. It was all Heenan talking for the majority of the segment which is never a bad thing. The promo was very well done as well. Heenan was very convincing and you almost start to feel sorry for him. Thats what made Heenan so great is that he had your emotions in his hands at all times. This is a segment worth checking out just for Heenan alone.
Match 3: Fan Favorite Match: Sgt. Slaughter vs. Jim Duggan
Duggan slides into the ring under the bottom rope and Slaughter attacks him right away with some boots. Slaughter picks Duggan up and irish whips him into the ropes, Duggan ducks the clotheslines and nails Slaughter with one of his own. Slaughter rolls out of the ring as Duggan picks up his 2×4 and gets the crowd going with a USA chant. Slaughter goes for a right and Duggan blocks it and nails Slaughter with 4-5 lefts of his own. Duggan just nails Slaughter with 3-4 big lefts and Slaughter does a complete flip and lands upside down in the ropes.
Slaughter is backing Duggan off as the crowd starts chanting USA for Duggan. Both men run into each other with a shoulder block. Duggan tries to go off the ropes but Adnan hit him in the back with the flag then Slaughter hit him in the midsection with a knee. Slaughter then starts to work over the lower back of Duggan with a few kicks then an ugly ass backbreaker. I really like how guys back then worked over the body part that went with their finisher. Slaughter always worked the lower back to “soften it up” for his Camel Clutch.
Slaughter goes for two elbows but Duggan rolls out of the way. Slaughter tries to whip Duggan into the turnbuckle but Duggan reverses and nails Slaughter with a huge back drop. Duggan goes for the 3 point stance but Adnan trips him. Duggan rolls out and goes after Adnan and chases him all the way to the back. Duggan tries to get back in time but the ref gets to 10 and Slaughter wins by count out. Duggan gets back in the ring and blows his nose, wipes his ass, and stomps on the Iraqi flag. Duggan then celebrates in the ring as Slaughter tries to get back into the ring to get his flag.
This match was garbage through and through. Slaughter was so lazy and not even trying by this point that it’s sad. Duggan was his usual self which isn’t saying much either. What a terrible finish and a waste of time. I would go ahead and skip this one if I was you.
Match 4: Bret Hart vs. The Barbarian
The match starts out with Bret Hart getting Barbarian in a headlock. Barbarian backs Bret up into the ropes and irish whips him to the other rope. Bret goes for a hip toss but Barbarian blocks it then the Barbarian goes for his own hip toss and Bret blocks it. Barbarian says screw this and levels Bret with a vicious clothesline. Barbarian then puts the boots to Bret who is laid out on the mat. Barbarian picks up Bret and hits him with a nasty head butt that sends Bret back to the mat. Bret rolls into the bottom of the turnbuckle and Barbarian starts choking him with his boot.
Barbarian then picks Bret up and chops him in the turnbuckle. Bret gets whipped back into the turnbuckle and he falls back down and eats some more leather from the Barbarian. Barbarian picks up Bret once again and he nails him with a body slam. Barbarian climbs to the middle rope and wastes his time to go for the elbow. Bret rolls out of the way. Both men get up and Bret lays in 3-4 rights and then he hits him with a reverse atomic drop. Bret climbs to the middle rope and hits Barbarian with the 10 punches.
Bret then gets Barbarian in his side Russian leg sweep then the middle rope elbow drop. Bret goes for the cover and gets a 2 count. Bret then hits Barbarian with a lay down clothesline, Ala Randy Savage, and gets another close 2 count. Bret goes for a cross body but the Barbarian catches him and dumps him with a huge power slam and he gets a 2 count. Barbarian bends over for a back body drop but Bret nails him with a kick and then he goes for a piledriver. Barbarian blocks it and flips Bret over but Bret holds on for the sunset flip. Barbarian doesn’t go down so he just falls down and goes for his own pin. Barbarian starts flexing as Bret gets his feet underneath the arms and rolls up the Barbarian for the 3 count and the victory.
This was a decent match here. Nothing special but nothing terrible. Jimmy Hart and Honky Tonk Man were on commentary during the match and that brought a little different dynamic and entertainment to the match. Bret got in his typical offense and the Barbarian did some nice power moves. There were no rest holds and the pace of the match was steady so it was enjoyable. It’s not the greatest piece of work but its watchable so I would check it out if you get the chance.
Match 5: Tag Team Match of the Month: Bushwhackers vs. Rhythm & Blues
The Bushwhackers roll into the ring and get attacked by Honky Tonk and Valentine before they can even get up to their feet. Valentine and Honky were going to run the Bushwhackers head first into each other but the Whackers reverse the move and throw them into each other. Luke then pokes Honky in the eye while Butch stomps on Valentines foot. Both members of the Bushwhackers bite a member of Rhythm and Blues. They then hit Honky with the battery ram as they start to celebrate with the crowd. Honky and Luke are in the ring together. Luke is running on the ropes and Valentine comes in and nails Luke with a stiff clothesline to give Rhythm and Blues the advantage. Valentine gets the tag and he nails Luke with a few vicious chops to the chest. Luke then bites Valentine in the leg again until Honky Tonk comes in and kicks Luke.
Valentine tags in Honky Tonk and he lays in a nice kick to the midsection. Luke is in the turnbuckle and Honky Tonk irish whips him into the opposite corner and Luke goes flying to the mat. Honky taunts the crowd a little bit then gets Luke in a reverse chin lock. Honky quickly tags in Valentine then hurries up and grabs the leg of Luke so he can’t tag out. Valentine goes to the middle rope and hits Luke with a ax handle. He goes for the cover but Luke gets the foot on the rope. Butch distracts the ref as Honky and Valentine double team Luke illegally. Valentine nails Luke with another vicious chop then drops two hammer elbows on Luke. He goes for the cover but Butch breaks it up. Honky comes in and drives a knee to the back of Butch. He then throws Butch outside of the ring.
Valentine and Honky Tonk just stomp away at Luke as Butch is trying to get up on the outside. Butch grabs the guitar and goes into the ring with it. He nails the Honky Tonk Man in the back with the guitar as the ref calls for the bell. Rhythm and Blues win by disqualification. Luke gets up and grabs the other guitar that is sitting ringside. The Bushwhackers then destroy the guitars of Rhythm and Blues.
There was nothing to this match at all. Rhythm and Blues dominated the whole match until Butch caused the disqualification. You can start to notice the trend here with the Coliseum Video matches. Neither team or wrestler is going to lose because the WWF wanted everyone to look strong at this point. I would go ahead and just skip this one because its not much more than punches and kicks delivered by Valentine for most of the match.
Match 6: Hulk Hogan vs. Dino Bravo
The Big Boss Man is introduced as being in Hulk Hogan’s corner for this match up. The match starts up with a collar and elbow tie up. Bravo shows off his strength by throwing Hogan into the turnbuckle. We start over again and this time Hogan throws Bravo into the turnbuckle. Hogan then flexes in front of Bravo. Bravo comes charging at him and he gets nailed for a backdrop. Hogan drops two elbows then Jimmy Hart climbs up to the apron. Hogan nails him twice as well. Hogan then drops Bravo with an atomic drop as Hogan starts posing for the crowd.
Bravo gets Hogan in an wrist lock and twists away numerous times. Hogan reverses the wrist lock and twists him around a couple of times as well. Hogan then chops and backs Bravo into the turnbuckle. Hogan then whips Bravo into the other turnbuckle as he follows him in and nails him with an elbow. Hogan climbs to the middle rope and hits the 10 punches. Bravo comes wobbling out as if he just had a 12 pack and was selling the punches like a genius. This is hilarious and must see. Hogan then nails Bravo with a chop that sends him to the mat. Hogan was going to go over the ropes but Earthquake grabs him by the boots. Hogan goes after Quake but Bravo hits him from behind and starts to choke him over the middle rope.
Bravo backs away and brings the ref with him as Earthquake starts choking him again. Boss Man comes after him but it took him forever to get over there so the damage is done. Bravo chokes Hogan again across the bottom rope and this time Boss Man stays on that side to keep Earthquake away. Bravo begins to work over the back of Hulk Hogan. Bravo then kicks Hogan out to floor. Earthquake gets his shots in and sends Hogan back into the ring. Bravo gets Hogan up and gets him in a bear hug. The ref raises the hands twice but on the third try Hogan keeps the arm up and breaks free with numerous punches to the face.

Hogan no sells the punches and wags the finger at Bravo like not today buddy. Hogan hits the 3 punches and the big boot. He nails him with the leg drop and gets the 3 count on Bravo.
Right before the 3 hits Jimmy Hart comes in and hits Hogan. Hogan picks up Jimmy Hart and throws him into the arms of Dino Bravo. Earthquake goes after Hogan but Boss Man stops him and they trade punches on Earthquake. They then hit Earthquake with a double big boot. Hogan poses for the crowd to wrap up the match.
This was your typical Hogan match. If you seen one you’ve seen them all. It was pretty cool seeing Big Boss Man and Earthquake at ringside. Bravo and Earthquake did a nice job of keeping Boss Man away so they can still get the double teaming in. The finish came quick and makes the match worth watching.
At Home with Hillbilly Jim
Hillbilly says he is taking a little break from the chores to show us a little bit about Mudlick, KY. He says in the smoke house is a missing Hillbilly Jim video. They then air this video and it’s basically Hillbilly Jim doing all of his chores such as chopping wood. They go inside and Granny is sitting in her rocking chair watching Hulk Hogan. Hillbilly Jim tells his granny that he won his first wrestling match. Hillbilly picks up the guitar and starts playing and singing a song. The dogs tell the story because they look like they would rather be anywhere than they are currently. Hillbilly then gets the stove ready so they can keep the house warm from the cold.
Hillbilly then starts his work out. He picks up a tire and practices the bear hug on the tire. He then practices dropping elbows on a mattress. He then drops a knee and says this is what he did to train. He then calls in his dog and gets it in a chin lock. Granny comes in and gets on to him for wrestling with the dog. This is horrible and a waste of time. Hillbilly then thanks us for coming down to Mudlick, KY and gets back to his chores.

The joined in progress match here was pretty slow and prodding. However, the moves were vicious and high impact. The two back body drops were insane and it looked like the guys were enjoying beating the hell out of each other. If you can get past the slowness of the match then you can enjoy this. If slow isn’t your thing then you may want to skip this. But I really enjoyed it.

She gave you every ounce she had every night she was managing anyone. It’s always great to watch. These guys had pretty good chemistry and it made for a good match. I would give it a view….at least once.

What a great match. Savage was so good at everything he did and the Warrior was the perfect compliment to him. I can watch these guys wrestle all day because they mixed it up and did different things each match. This match is definitely worth checking out.
This was a so-so coliseum video. The first 4-5 matches are extremely short and don’t do much at all to enhance what was going on. The main matches on the card were decent but not great. The only really good match was the Warrior vs. Savage cage match. Duggan and Savage wasn’t that bad but I’m not a huge fan of Jim Duggan so it kind of ruins things for me. The Bulldog and Haku match was good but it was so slow that it makes it hard to watch. There are 2-3 good things here and the rest is not really worth watching. I would give this a lukewarm recommendation as far as watching the whole thing goes.
