One of the things I have always prided myself on is being able to come up with unique ideas for post series that would make my site different than others. Well I would like to think that this is one of those post series that would make my site different. In this post series I will basically look for interesting posts on other wrestling blogs that I feel like sharing with you guys and gals here on my site. I am doing this I guess to spread the love and help other people in the WWW (Worldwide Wrestling Web) get more noticed. Now you might say "Why are you wasting your time and site space on other people's work." Well my answer is that I always liked reading about wrestling and instead of just taking the guy's idea and reusing it on my site I felt that I should give them the credit they deserve.
Looking at the name of the post series "Great Ideas That Didn't Last" I think that the title of the series is awesome, because if you do some research and spread the post out enough then the series could go for a while. This post on Shotgun Saturday Night is awesome and very insightful, I found out something things about the original WWE B Show that I never knew. Like on one episode of Shotgun Saturday Night they actually had Terry Funk vs Stone Cold in a Texas Bar Boom Brawl or when Triple H fought The Undertaker in a match at Penn Station and the finish of the match saw Triple H take a tombstone pile driver on an Escalator!! To find out other moments that Shotgun Saturday Night special your gonna have to read the post.
Below is an excerpt from the post, but for the full post visit: https://ringthedamnbell.wordpress.com/2015/04/13/great-ideas-that-didnt-last-wwf-shotgun-saturday-night/
"In January of 1997, the WWF was in the middle of a promotional war with WCW for pro wrestling supremacy. While Raw was still the flagship program for the WWF….a new…secondary show was created. About 2 years before the birth of Smackdown there was a show called ‘Shotgun Saturday Night.’ It was innovative and truly something unique that was never tried before by the WWF.
What made this show so different from Raw? Firstly, it was broadcast late nights on Saturdays. Secondly, the shows were initially not held in a typical arena..but rather nightclubs and bars and even a train station. It seemed at least to me upfront…Raw was the A show to compete with World Championship Wrestling…While Shotgun was the B show and would go after a fringe audience to compete with ECW."
Right now I am not sure if this will be a weekly occurrence as I don't have to much time right now to do research for things to post up. So this might be the last one for a bit, but if the post is well received then that might help the series case.
