Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Today he welcomes a brand new guest to the Place To Be Nation Wrestling Network in the form of his fellow Wrestling 20 Years Ago Podcast historian(?) Chris Lacey! After an introduction to Chris and his own wresting fandom, the boys take a trip to Parts Unknown to look at the first of two Ultimate Warrior VHSs on the Network! From a terrible match with Hercules (not that one) to a barn-burning display of attacking venom against Rick Rude (not that one), join the guys on a journey you might not want to ever return from!

So dust off your VCR, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and enjoy!
 
 
 

Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and today, almost certainly the very worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Rory has the pick again today and he is graciously sharing his air miles with Calum McDougall for a look at 'World Tour 89/90'! They might not get much of a suntan, but they do get treated to TWO Jimy Snuka matches...and in turn they treat you to a surfeit of Z-List British celebrities! How many have YOU been unfortunate enough to have heard of?...

So dust off your VCR, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and - best you can - enjoy! (And apologies for some mic choppiness at around the 20 minute mark!)
 

Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and today, almost certainly the very worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Rory himself has the pick today - with poor old Ben Locke having to accompany him through a dissection of 'Villains Of The Squared Circle'! 

 
Fair warning for fans of Captain Lou Albano, jelly rolls and/or terrible Coliseum Videos from 1986: This might not be the show for you!  So dust off your VCR, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and - best you can - enjoy!

Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and indeed, very worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Today he has re-enlisted the services of PTBN Special Relation and Ideas Man Ben Locke to get no-sold(?)by the Immortal Hulk Hogan: 1985-1988 Edition! The boys discuss whether or not they were Hulkamaniacs in their youth, pin-point The Hogan Formula, and wonder how on Earth Pete Doherty ever made it to a commentary box. It's a perfectly fine way to spend an hour, Dude Jack Brother!

Today he has re-enlisted the services of PTBN Special Relation and host Calum McDougall to cast eyes over Rampage '92 (NOT UK Rampage '92!) The boys discuss the shocking development of Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels having a good match against each other, fail to identify every participant in a 40-man battle royal, talk it out over Randy Savage's second WWF Title run, and lose track of how many Questionable Jokes that Calum drops in to proceedings!

Today he has enlisted the services of PTBN Special Relation and Ideas Man Ben Locke to cast eyes over Smack 'Em Whack 'Em! The boys break down every segment - including The Bushwhackers breaking down a house -, bemoan why we never got a full Undertaker - Razor Ramon feud, imagine they are watching a 'Steel Ladder Match' for the very first time and wonder aloud whether Bret Hart - Ric Flair is kind of underrated (not least by themselves!)

Join Rory McNamara for a brand new series of shows here on the Place To Be Nation Wrestling Feed, as he trawls his way through the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network!

In this first episode he is joined by fellow PTBN Special Relation Calum McDougall to look at UK Rampage '93. They break down every match, scoff at how easy Lex Luger makes it for them during his interview segment, and along the way take in every thing from glasses being smashed in a Glasgow pub to Rory not getting over his beloved Aston Villa FC not winning the Premier League 27 years ago!
 
So dust off your VCR in the attic, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and press 'play' for the inaugural edition of Seen Your Video!
