1001 MATCHES: Schneider Comps

(by PHIL RIPPA)

The theme of this section is that all these matches were featured on a Phil Schneider comp tape. I think the grand total got up to 26 and one may or may not be on the way via the Digging In The Crates Podcasts.


318) HARLEY RACE vs. JUMBO TSURUTA – ALL JAPAN (06/11/77, NWA World Heavyweight Title)

https://youtu.be/npGKX2oMN4g

Schneider Comp #11

Schneider Comp Description: “Old school greatness for the NWA title. Simply two of the best wrestlers ever, wrestling.”

Oh yeah – this amuses me greatly for reasons probably no one understands.

319) TATSUMI FUJINAMI vs. REY MENDOZA – (08/13/78, IWGP Jr Heavyweight Title)

https://youtu.be/YMd6TMTYmuA

Schneider Comp #20

Schneider Comp Description: “This is a very rare look at Lucha Libre from the 1970’s it is from Arena Mexico and Mendoza is the father of the Villanos. He is near the end of his career, but is still great, very cool old school mat goodness.”

~!~

320) RAY STEVENS/JIMMY SNUKA vs. RICKY STEAMBOAT/JAY YOUNGBLOOD – MAPLE LEAF WRESTLING (06/29/80)

https://youtu.be/qVy–0-BicE

Schneider Comp #10

Schneider Comp Description: “Great old school tag match with a young Ricky Steamboat and youngish Jimmy Snuka rocking the house, also a chance to see legendary worker Ray Stevens, and the uncomfortably close relationship between Steamer and Jay.”

~!~

321) CLIVE MYERS vs. YOUNG DAVID (Davey Boy Smith) (03/17/81 (Taped), 03/21/81 (Aired))

(VQ is as good as you will probably get for this)

Schneider Comp #14

Schneider Comp Description: “Very cool match as a 16 year old skinny Davey Boy Smith takes on lost superworker Myers in a British mat fest. The workrate in this match is astounding as they move at a million miles an hour. Really cool look at a different style of wrestling.”

~!~

322) RIC FLAIR vs. HACK SAWYER – BIG TIME WRESTLING (09/04/82 – NWA World Title)

https://youtu.be/V_ahxKIwaFg

Schneider Comp #19

Schneider Comp Description: “Classic Ric Flair territory match. He comes in and takes on the top worker and makes everyone believe that Brett Wayne Sawyer is going to win the world title. 2/3 falls and Flair just rules it.”

~!~

323) JOHNNY SAINT vs. ROBBIE BROOKSIDE – WORLD OF SPORT (04/28/87)

PART ONE

PART TWO

Schneider Comp #18

Schneider Comp Description: “No one in the world wrestles like Johnny Saint. Probably the weirdest worker I have ever seen, but loads of fun to watch. If you haven’t seen him, you need to learn to love him.”

~!~

324) RICK RUDE vs. RODDY PIPER – WWF MSG HOUSE SHOW (12/28/89, Steel Cage Match)

Schneider Comp #3

Schneider Comp Description: “One of the best American cage matches I have ever seen, neat cage bumps, Rude jumping off the top of the cage and all around coolness. Almost as good as the version I saw at the Oakland Coliseum when I was 12.”

Point of Order: This is the MSG match. I am not 100% sure if this the same match Phil put on his comp but as far as I can tell, this is the only one that made tape. Also, this is Escape the Cage or pinfall.

325) EL HIJO DEL SANTO vs. FELINO – CMLL (07/25/97)

https://youtu.be/x-IDrF25XN0

Schneider Comp #5

Schneider Comp Description: “Great singles match between two of Lucha Libre’s best. Starts with a Santo tope suicida and doesn’t slow down a bit. A good chance to see the eternal technico Santo work rudo.”

~!~

326) EL HIJO DEL SANTO/NEGRO CASAS vs. BESTIA SALVAJE/SCORPIO JR – CMLL (03/19/99, Double Hair vs. Mask Match)

https://youtu.be/1zHa0LM64hc

Schneider Comp #8

Schneider Comp Description: “Wild, bloody mask vs. hair match, with really stiff work from Bestia and Negro, and a ton of big dives from Santo. Hot crowd and a great match.”

Segunda Caida recently declared this The 1999 Match of The Year (for now)

~!~

327) MAGNUM TOKYO vs. SHIIMA NOBUNAGA – TORYUMON KING OF DRAGON ’99 (05/02/99)

https://youtu.be/K8uerc7MtLw

Schneider Comp #7

Schneider Comp Description: “These two are like Juventud and Rey Jr. in 1995 AAA, young stars who are already delivering classic matches. This match has got great mat wrestling, bastard heel posturing, big highspots and cool moves. Tons of fun.”

~!~

328) OSCAR SEVILLA vs. El (Gran) APACHE – AAA (04/11/00)

https://youtu.be/kz2K5J8nUGE

Schneider Comp #16

Schneider Comp Description: “Amazing match, as Sevilla and Apache wrestle in a rainstorm. Instead of taking it to the mat they work a regular lucha match with Sevilla doing a tope in a rainstorm, and really cool bloody rain visuals. Tons of fun to watch and one of my favorite matches for pure strangeness.”

They had a hair match a week later that is good but ruined somewhat by Tirantes

~!~

329) DR. CEREBRO vs. ULTIMO VAMPIRO – IWRG (05/11/00, IWRG Intercontinental Welterweight Championship)

https://youtu.be/iZNWRgjqZaM

Schneider Comp #11

Schneider Comp Description: “Cerebro is the coolest wrestler nobody knows about, as he is incredible on the mat, has the worlds greatest mask and is the unquestioned king of goofy submission holds. Ultimo Vampiro looked great in this too, with a pair of super nasty topes, and he hung with Cerebro on the mat.”

FYI – this version of Ultimo Vampiro is the one that became Super Mega.

330) SATOSHI KOJIMA vs. TOSHIAKI KAWADA – NEW JAPAN (06/06/01)

http://www.veoh.com/watch/v948025817zz8YAxn

Schneider Comp #16

Schneider Comp Description: “Great match which was the best of an excellent PPV. Kawada continues to deliver and Kojima steps it up big.”

~!~

331) C.M.PUNK vs. CHRIS HERO – IWA MID-SOUTH (02/02/02, Tables and Ladders Match)

https://youtu.be/APn0xrZt42E

Schneider Comp #19

Schneider Comp Description: “The effort from both guys in this match is out of this world. Ladders and Tables match which has 50+ minutes of huge bumps and great wrestling. Both guys get busted open hardway and both guys let it all out.”

~!~

332) IAN ROTTEN vs. CHRIS HERO – IWA MID-SOUTH (05/04/02)

https://youtu.be/W1zpyogaicY

Schneider Comp #21

Schneider Comp Description: “Super stiff mat based match, with Hero and Rotten just pounding each other in front of 39 people. No garbage wrestling at all, just stiff strikes and great body part selling by both. Ian is the most underrated worker in the country as he can really go in non garbage matches and this is an example. Easy US Indy MOTYC.”

~!~

333) BLACK TERRY vs. MULTIFACETICO – IWRG (04/17/08, Hair vs. Mask)

https://youtu.be/Nj5cCO1fZRY

Schneider Comp #24

Phil and Will discuss the entire Comp on a Good Will Podcast. You should probably listen because some of these other matches will probably come up.

334) BLUE PANTHER vs. VILLANO V – CMLL 75th ANNIVERSARY SHOW (09/19/08, Mask Match)

https://youtu.be/L4Pj9mU-1L8

Schneider Comp #23

Segunda Caida full write-up of entire comp

No, I still haven’t gotten over this.

~!~

335) L.A. PARK vs. MESIAS – AAA (06/18/11, Mask vs. Hair)

Schneider Comp #26

No online description for this one (at least that I can find). However, when I first started this project, DEAN requested I add this match so there ya go. A previous match in this feud can be found on Schneider Comp #25.
