  2. Sid just looks like a star. Some dudes just got "it" and Sid is one of those guys. He always seemed like a cool dude, even when he was in the horsemen he had these little mini feuds with Motor City Madman, Big Cat and the Nightstalker and he was over like a MF. Sid rules.

  5. Other favorite thing is that led to the incident later that year where The Sandman was dressing down Jamie Dundee for some sort of ECW locker room etiquette breach, and Dundee's response was "I was on Wrestlemania, bitch! What the fuck have you done?"

  12. He was so fun to the point that it's been hard for me to get into heavier, bloated Rey with a history of bad knees. Rey Mysterio vs Psicosis from Bash at the Beach '96 is like some shit from a different planet.

  16. @MavsFan77 most of the guys on that list aren’t genuine NXT developmental talents. The Shield, Big E, Bray...spent the vast majority of their development in FCW. McIntyre was a 16-year veteran by the time he went to NXT. He was hardly developed there. On the female front, Asuka had a decade in the business before going to NXT. Not a developmental talent either. Among the guys you listed, only Otis and Corbin are true NXT developmental “success” stories. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if that’s something they should hang their hat on. Now, the 4 Horsewomen are a genuine devel

  17. If Ortiz is Wyle E. Coyote, then Sammy is Daffy Duck. You can pin him, submit him, decapitate him, run him over, and spike his neck off a three story fall. The guy is still a star when it’s all said, and done.

  20. Him mumbling that it's softer and realizing how dumb that is to bring up was so good. I'm laughing just thinking about it. Another guy with a strange, great career. Sometimes it appears he spaces out by missing a point made or whatever but that's okay. He is reformed Tony Schiavone and we have time for him. Commentary team was great all night I thought. Excalibur has toned down the "whoaohooooh" deals. He still doesn't feel entirely comfortable but I enjoy his work a lot.

  21. I'm watching Great American Bash '89 a couple weeks ago. In the middle of the match w/ the Dynamic Dudes, they're chanting for Sid to the point where Sid kinda breaks character and does the N64 wrestling video game get on one knee and gesture with both your hands pose to the adulation of the crowd. If Ric Flair wasn't the champion at the time, someone would have ran out with a belt and put it around Sid's waist at that very moment. He was like a year and a half into the business and that over doing nothing but being a giant man with boulders for traps and a dry ass Jheri curl perm. That'

  25. From Mad Magazine #271. I remembered this after seeing that "2020 Presidential Election" Chess Set commercial this morning. If this had been a real thing in the 80's, I would have thrown a massive temper tantrum until my parents bought it: (You probably couldn't get away with the Adrian Adonis joke today. Ugh.)

  28. I remember back in '06-'07 People were saying that Finlay was Vince's favorite wrestler at the time and that he would've gotten a World title run if it wasn't for his age. Finlay is one of my all time favorites and I wish he had a run. It never appeared to me that he was 50 or close to it at the time. Looking back, especially after watching the Taker Documentary, he was light years ahead of where HHH and Taker have been in the past 5 years as workers. It's bad enough that both Taker and Hunter get to work 25 to 35 minutes or more for the matches they do have where they are quickly blown up and

  29. I definitely think there has to be a distinction between talent that is genuinely *developed* by the NXT/Performance Center system and experienced talent that already knows what they’re doing but gets shined up by being pushed on NXT TV. Because these are very different things. Going back to Asuka for an example, NXT didn’t develop her, but she clearly benefitted from being pushed as an ace on NXT for a year prior to going to the main roster. (That said, there doesn’t really seem to be an consistency, as far as “push on NXT=you’re instantly over on the main roster.” Plenty of pushed NX

  31. Very true, he seems to take the pin more than anyone else in that group, gets his ass kicked repeteadly and loves playing a fool yet I want to see more of him every week. Kid’s got a bright future and he pretty much won the wrestling lottery by being chosen to be right next to Jericho for this past year.

  32. That reminds me of this scene though I think this one had more to do with how much the character was hated by viewers than any problems with Diana Muldaur.

  33. BATB 96 was the first PPV I had ordered since WMVI. My friends and I had moved away from wrestling for a while. I happened to catch the Nitro where Hall debuted, and started watching again. So, we were all intrigued who the third man was going to be (my friend who never really watched wrestling called it as being Hogan) and decided to watch the show at my house. We were still kind of getting settled and chatting and stuff when the Rey/Psicosis match started. A couple minutes in, we were transfixed on the match and losing our minds over the shit they were pulling off. Hell, even my dad st

  35. @supremebve That was a really good review! Glad you enjoyed it. @Smelly McUgly I've got a ton of preconceived notions about modern WWE and their go-go-go big bomb overkill dozens of kick-outs main event big match epic epic epic style. I was expecting this to be that and I was kind of looking forward to complaining about it while trying to keep an open mind. Imagine my surprise when this match turned out to be built around old-fashioned body part psychology! I was not expecting that at all. And these two young ladies did a tremendous job of working in that style. There wa

  36. It's probably just me, but I hate hate Rey's cosplay gear. All of them. I hate when he would bust them out at Wrestlemania. That purple monstrosity actively takes away from the Halloween Havoc match for me. His regular WCW gear was sweet though.

  39. Same here. I know there's been folks who say they prefer heavier Rey from WWE and he's had some classics there, such as the Andrade series, but I still prefer the younger and smaller Rey from WCW. Once he lost his mask in WCW, he changed his style and wasn't the same anymore. Same thing happened to Juvi.

  42. We should have a thread where we just bitch about WWWF stuff the way we do current wrestling. ”Fellas, ya hear about this phony baloney tournament in Rio de Janeiro? Who’s Toots Mondt kiddin’? The audience hears about that little chestnut and they’re gonna 23 skidoo.”

  45. And thus I became an obnoxious smark who cheered all the heels and booed all the faces. The more WWF went all-in on sweeping Bret under the rug and trying to tell me I should be happy about the ascent of HBK, the more I rejected him and by extension every other face on the roster (didn't hurt that Foley, Vader, and Austin had all just come in and were all clearly cooler, nevermind better, than the tools in the midcard and especially HBK, who I was already inclined to think was a much more natural heel and sounded insincere phony every time he tried to cut the "top babyface" style promo a WWF

  46. I was reminded more of Zucker Abrahams Zucker, but Warner Bros is a good comparison too. Just one insane creative idea after another coming at you so quickly... Definitely a nice, entertaining break from the pretty grim recent reality.
