TAPE 694

Quality: EX (*MASTER*)

Length: 2.3 hrs (DVD)

HALL OF FAME: GREG VALENTINE PART 1 (Fun special from 24/7 highlighting the career of Greg Valentine. Nothing particularly spectacular or noteworthy here, but it's really nice to have some of this footage in DVD quality. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Greg Valentine Featurette Starrcade '83 Build-Up Greg Valentine vs Roddy Piper, 11/24/83 (Dog Collar) Greg Valentine vs Tito Santana, 9/24/84 (Valentine wins I-C title) Greg Valentine & Brutus Beefcake vs British Bulldogs, 3/1/86 (Excellent match from SNME that sees Valentine & Beefcake get the win just prior to Wrestlemania 2.) Greg Valentine's Hall of Fame Induction
HALL OF FAME: GREG VALENTINE PART 2 (Extra matches from the 24/7 special. Good stuff here, particularly the super-rare 1-hr draw. I've got a master, so VQ is EX.)
Greg Valentine vs Tito Santana, 7/6/85 (Cage - Santana wins I-C title) Greg Valentine vs Bob Backlund, 2/19/79 (1-hr draw - slightly clipped; This is a good match, but not nearly what it could have been. Too much stalling, over-selling of exhaustion and lack of near falls and drama hurt this one. It's still a perfectly decent match, probably ** or **1/2, but I like my long matches to be a lot better than that, ya know?)
