On this episode of What Happened When, Tony is still basking in all the goodness of Canada, so we are giving our listeners a super special treat with a double dose of WHW Patreon madness!
On bonus episode number one from February 2019, Low Key Big Hog Joe Pierce of Palmyra, NJ, suggested the main event cage match from SummerSlam 1990 as the Ultimate Warrior met Rick Rude: "... I still remember the awesome Rude vignettes leading up to this with him working out, etc., the match itself, and the aftermath with Rude leaving the WWF (I think it was because he didn't like his payoff from Vince). Plus, I think that this was the first major WWF pay per view after Tony went back to WCW...." And as a bonus, we will cover Hulk Hogan versus Earthquake from the event as well as we go back and see What Happened When...
Our second bonus podcast for September takes us back to SummerSlam 2001 during the "invasion." This was suggested by LKBH Bryan Downs of San Antonio, TX, who wrote: "...To be honest, this one wasn't that hard. I have always wanted you and Conrad to cover Summerslam 2001. The INVASION was in full force by that point. Austin had defected to WCW with the WWF Championship, DDP was in full stalker mode for the wife of the Undertaker, and Booker T, the now 5x WCW champ, was to face off against The Rock for the WCW championship. I would to have you and Conrad discuss the tag-team cage match between Kane/'Taker vs DDP/Kanyon. DDP got so f'ing buried by WWE (WWF at the time) that it was ridiculous. In fact, most of the WCW talent got buried big time. Characters that connected were done away with and the commentary team, namely JR, took every change to run down the WCW talent. If you have time or desire, I would also love you guys to cover the Rock vs Booker T match. On the plus side, yes, Booker gets to have a match with the Rock. On the negative side, Rock JUST came back from doing Scorpion King and Booker was doing his thing every chance he could. In my opinion, just my opinion, the whole angle was done poorly and was a way to say "we tried". Again, just my opinion..." And Bryan, we VALUE your opinion and your patronage as well. So, here we go with the cage match at Bummer-Slam.
