• 3 matches will be spotlighted every Sunday morning based on their nostalgic qualities, their in-ring performances, their campiness, and their performers’ contributions to today’s wrestling world.
• Not EVERY match will be a squash, but it’s always nice to see the fan favorite totally dominate.
• Main event of Squash Match Sunday will normally have a title on the line, and will ALWAYS be a quality wrestling match.
…Let’s get to the action!
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
Sherri Martel and Madusa kick things off here on Squash Match Sunday as they grapple in a WCW Thunder ring back in 2000. Special appearances by Ed “Oklahoma” Ferrara, Stacy “Miss Hancock” Keibler, and a new nose for Madusa! As well as two new additions. Can you spot them???
MID CARD HANGOVER
Our Mid Card Hangover match takes us to TNA Slammiversary 2004 as AJ Styles takes on Jeff Hardy for the X Division Championship. This match marked Jeff Hardy’s first appearance in TNA let alone his first match. This summer will mark 8 YEARS in TNA for Jeff!
Things to keep an eye/ear out for:
• “AND THE CROWD IS GOING BANANAS!!!” – Don West. Not sure what produce store Mr. West shops at, but the crowd is NOT going bananas.
• Kid Kash and Lance “Dallas” Hoyt run-in takes away from this above-average match. I don’t know WHY I keep thinking Kash is dead, but apparently…he’s NOT!
YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE MORNING
YOUR Main Event of the Morning takes us to one of the most memorable non-Rumble matches at a Royal Rumble, as the Undertaker takes on Yokozuna for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship in a Casket Match. This match is more well-known for what happens AFTER the match instead of the ACTUAL match.
Your main event worthy commentary of the afternoon:
• This match has given me a new found respect for Yokozuna. Between his facial reactions to the casket and him spilling out of the ring and comically walking into the ring post at 6:08, he is receiving my vote for the Hall of Fame!
• I definitely cracked up when Yokozuna pushed the Undertaker into the casket at 10:00, and while the Undertaker was standing up in the casket, Yokozuna asked the ref to close the lid. Earl Hebner closes it on Undertaker in the most awkward fashion possible.
• Royal Rumble 1994 was the ‘last’ for a few things. One being this was the last PPV before Wrestlemania X (the start of the “Attitude Era”), as well as the Undertaker wearing grey for his ring attire.
Well that about does it from my end, enjoy your Sunday afternoon!
