    Hi guys,

    Just trying to track down some information on these two dates.

    I have some old photographs from the period.

    One set I think is from 1994, I've got

    Earthquake and Adam Bomb
    Shaun Michaels and Diesel
    Randy Savage and Crush
    Razor Ramon
    Marty Janetty I think.

    Can anyone remember (or find a reference) for the entire card? I've checked a couple of websites and for some reason the entry for "WWF @ Dublin, Ireland - Point Depot - March 5, 1994" is blank.

    Next question :)

    Around April 27th 1991 I've got some photographs of wrestlers in Dublin Airport.

    Sid Justice, The Bushwakers, Texas Tornado (RIP), Tatanka.

    There was a show in the point around this time too but doesn't seem to have these exact guys.

    If anyone has any information about either show that would be nice to hear.

    I think the 1994 shows were a warm up for one of the PPVs, King of the Ring maybe.

    I remember seeing Savio Vega against IRS definitely.

    I saw that website already. I think the photos are taken around Easter 1991 which fits the April 27th time stamp. But the same website has the bush waskers in NY on that date too. But i've a photo of the bush wackers. There's also no reference to Sid Justice. Is he under an alias? Or maybe he travelled and didn't fight on the night?

    sid "justice" eudy was still in wcw in april 1991, in fact he wrestled el gigante(which i believe was his last match on wcw tv) at superbrawl on May 19 1991, he didn't debut for wwf until july of 1991

    Sid and Undertaker main evented the WWF show here in 1992, can't place the exact date other than it was Maundy Thursday that year and it was one of his last WWF shows before he left.

    The list Rossie posted was exactly as I remembered it in 1991; I still thank my Ma's insurance man for serving me beer that night when I was underage and showing me how to get beer past the security check which was cool as Rene Goulet no less told me on the floor I wasn't to bring a coke through to my seat :D

    No help to you mate but I remember the 1991 show in Glasgow. We got free tickets through the Police as they sold only 2,000 tickets. They gave free tickets through the schools too. SECC was the venue so i take it was the same tour?

    I'd love to see the photies.
    WWF ran a show in the Point in 1995 with Shawn Michaels vs. IRS :/


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,170 ✭✭✭Wompa1


    I remember Bob Sparkplug Holly versus Brooklyn Brawler as the first match I ever saw live! GO SPARKPLUG! 94

    Thurman Spark Plugg I think he was first called.


    Gosh that guy has had some awful ring atire and gimmicks. Remember Bodacious Bob?!
    "Hardcore" Holly was actually alright for a while but the "hardcore" matches weren't a patch on what someone like Foley could do, instead they were just kinda comedy matches to rib on ECW. Well, not rib on but to just add a little bit of E-C-Dub.

    i have a load of photos from these events
    i`ll post them up tomorrow, have to scan them first


  • Registered Users Posts: 936 ✭✭✭HorseRadish


    I was at the 1994 show and I remember (vaguely)

    Virgil vs Diesel
    HBK vs Razor
    Savage vs Crush

    Jeff Jarrett and i think Rick Martel were there as well,for the life of me I cant remember who they were wrestling.

    i was at both 91 and 94. The above list brought back loads of memorys. I have a niggling little suspicion that it may have been Virgil not Snula in the 1st match. probaly wrong though as i was only 12 at the time.

    As for 94, Im sure the headline was Bret Vs Bam Bam. I also remember The Bush whackers Vs the Berverly bros ( was a big BW fan back then:D).

    Hey lads...

    I've seen WWF here in 93, 94 and 95. I always thought 93 was the first year they were ever here but I was obviously mistaken. I was only a kid at the time anyways...

    I defo remember Bret/Bigelow headlining the 93 show. After the match Bret draped an Irish flag around his shoulders. The only other matches I can think of was Taker/Yokozuna and I think El Matador/Papa Shango. I could be mistaken on this though.

    I remember 94 and 95 much more clearly as I was in the front row with a friend who was in a wheelchair.. 94 had Diesel/Virgil, Jarrett/Martel, Bob Holly/?, Shawn/ Razor and Savage/Crush. Pretty sure Bret Hart was there too but I could be wrong..

    95 was Bret/Hakushi, Shawn/IRS, Taker/Kama, Headshrinkers/Men on a Mission, Duke Droese/Jean Pierre LaFitte, Smoking Gunns, King Kong Bundy and Adam Bomb were there too but I don't remember their bouts. I still have the programme from this one.

    I had a look at that history of WWF site there and I'm pretty sure there are a few inaccuracies. Maybe they had a few European tour dates and cards mixed up because the show listen in 93 is not the one I was at. Unless they did 2 shows that year. ?

    Hope this helps whoever is a bit stuck on the details.

    Yeah that was the main event. I went to see it aswell was only about 7 or 8 at the time so cant remeber a whole lot about it. Still have the ticket for the show. Im pretty sure the Undertaker was in there aswell.

    That would be April 1992 Sid vs Taker, Texas Tornado vs The Model Rick Martel. Bushwhackers vs IRS and Brooklyn Brawler, Tatanka vs Kato

    I was there!! Have the photos to prove it. Also, Alundra Blayze fought Bertha Faye, match lasted about 5 mins. I remember Bret Hart coming down to the railing where I was sitting...was too shy to go up to him.:o
    Ah, good times!!!

    awesome! this is really a blast from the past!


  • Registered Users Posts: 42 Subotai


    The sad death today of Rowdy Roddy Piper reminded me of the 1991 WWF show in the point. I was 12 when i was at it, and i remember now that Piper vs Earthquake was the headline act. I think Piper won via a countout, and went around waving the Irish flag afterwards.

    I remember waiting outside at the end of the '91 show and they had heel and face buses not that I knew those terms back then.
