4.0 out of 5 stars
WrestleMania 4's Revenge, 26 Sep 2004
Unlike the WrestleFest predecessors that followed,
this first one was an actual live show held in the massive Milwaukee Stadium !
It doesn't actually say when it was shown, but I can only assume it was sometime after WrestleMania 4, meaning it was probably one, if not, the first video produced back then to not be part of the WrestleMania, Summerslam, Survivor Series collection !
The Match listing includes :-
The Killer Bees Vs The Fabulous Rougeous
Bret Hart Vs Bad News Brown (Grudge Match)
The Bolsheviks Vs Powers Of Pain
The Ultimate Warrior Vs Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan in a never before seen 'Loser Wears a Weasel Suit Match' (Quite Funny, and I bet you can't guess who wins (!)
Intercontinental Title Match
'Hacksaw' Jim Duggan Vs The Honky Tonk Man
Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart Vs 'Leaping' Larry Poffo (Macho Man's Brother)
Jake 'The Snake' Roberts Vs Ravishing Rick Rude (Major Grudge Match)
Ken Patera Vs Dino Bravo
Tag Team Title Match
The British Bulldogs Vs Demolition w/Mr Fuji
World Championship Steel Cage Match
Andre The Giant w/Bobby Heenan Vs Hulk Hogan.
All in all this is isn't too bad for a live show.
Back then, the WWF only had 3 Events in a year so it is refreshing to see how some of the feuds developed after Wrestlemania and led up to Summerslam '88.
The best (entertaining matches) are The Ultimate Warrior Vs Bobby Heenan, just for the comedy value really !
Jake Roberts Vs Ravishing Rick Rude, just for the intensity level of how much they despised each other !
The British Bulldogs Vs Demolition was a very evenly contested match up that went back and forth.
In a rare singles match (at the time) Bret Hart did well against Bad News Brown, in what probably was Bad News' one and only half decent match in his whole career !!
The Main Event with Hogan and Andre is ok, but it doesn't come close to their best efforts at WrestleMania 3.
However it is interesting to see these 2 lock up in this type of match.
I would definately recommend this to have in your collection if you appreciate the old style WWF back in those days, and also to watch never-before-seen match ups.
