Default why in the bleep did espn classic take off awa again? are they a stupid chanel?

they show 1986 in sequence then skip 1987 and jump to 1988. Then they show awa every night at 9 then take it off the air suddenly after skipping a day here and there.....

Thats pisses me off!

Sorry guys but I watched awa's 2 or sometimes 3 hr special instead of smackdown .

They had a golf marathon instead of awa last week.

and a stupid geek show called 30 30 then a lame basketball game.

30 for 30 is a cool show on ESPN and basketball isn't lame at all.

The AWA, even in their darkest years of 1988 - 1990, was the sh*t compared to today's WWE. I'm sorry people, that's how I feel. ESPN are tards for taking it off the air and not being consistent with their showings of AWA. It was black and white wrestling without the edges, babyface vs heel, but in such a way that was entertaining and when it still worked with fans. I'd love for WWE to do studio interviews again with the announcer interviewing the wrestler but today's fans are way too accustomed to a 20 minute in ring promo, they'd likely hate the old school formula if it was ever brought back

they shuffle up the line up all the time, give it a month and it'll be back

as to the skips and jumps, If i remember a lot of what they're re-running was the AWA show that they had back then and I seem to recall they had gaps in production back then

and it could be a matter of poor cataloging of the original masters that leads to certain things being filed out of order-- for all we know the programming machine @ ESPN could still resemble the sequence from Hackers, and not yet have been digitized into a central computer system as of yet

considering the size of ESPN's catalog that would be a daunting task to sort all of the material and apply uniform filing notes -- think of how much work one has in renaming/sorting music files off of a Limewire/Frostwire
