Bob Bamber is joined by Del Muir, Chris Lacey and Colin Judkins for our review of 1994. Split into two halves, the first discusses some of the big talking points from the WWF, WCW and ECW, the second is the all important end of year awards.

Over two hours in total, a Happy New Year for 1995!

Chapter Times:
- End of Year Review: 1:03:30

December 1994


Bob Bamber hosts the December 1994 podcast (we've got a year in review show coming separately) reviewing Starrcade 1994, Randy Savage's arrival, previewing the Royal Rumble and more.

Chapter Times:

WCW – 3:40
– Starrcade – 14:30
ECW – 54:30
WWF – 1:39:40

Discussion – 1:45:30. Talking the Royal Rumble, Randy Savage and Blacktop Bully.

Main Show guests: Chris White and Kieran Mitchell
ECW: Del Muir
Voiceovers: Colin Judkins


The third and final volume of November 1994 looks at an underwhelming Clash of the Champions and discusses the immanent arrival of Randy Savage, and other potential arrivals in the company.

Chapter Times:
Clash Of The Champions XXIX: 11 mins 30s
Randy Savage Discussion: 50 mins

A show that was largely saved, you might say, by a stellar match between Dustin Rhodes and Vader also featured the first match with the Three Faces of Fear, taking on Sting, Hogan and Dave Sullivan. Later on in the show, we look at one near-certain arrival in Randy Savage, and a few potential names that might be coming in including The Ultimate Warrior and Yokozuna.

The second volume of this month sees us take our usual look at ECW, before Bob departs leaving Del and Chris to look at the AAA “When World's Collide” Lucha Libre PPV.

Chapter Times:
ECW: Start
AAA: 43 mins

One of the great TV angles you will ever see with the “retirement” ceremony for the Sandman, along with a brutal tag team title match between Cactus Jack and Mikey Whipreck and The Public Enemy. The AAA show would also include a tag team match rated five stars by Dave Meltzer. Tragically, “Love Machine” Art Barr (who wrestled in this match along with his tag team partner Eddy Guerrero) would pass away less than three weeks later.
