  1. Welp, in addition to not being in the house, my better half has just informed me that it would bum/stress her out too badly to watch the show live tonight while our car situation is ongoing. I'm pretty sure I can parlay this into some crazy sex and getting Spider-Man 2 if I play my cards right, but I'm not gonna be around again til Tuesday probably so I don't get spoiled. Have a great rest of your weekend all

  2. I'm just glad to see Abadon back and winning! Last year this time we got no Abadon for the season, so this is the first time on TV since the Halloween Deathmatch of 2021 with Britt which I loved. Tomorrow night's match with Shida is now being billed as a "Fright Night Fight"! Abadon's AEW Debut on Dark was against Shida and I was a big fan of their first title match on Dynamite in early 2021, so I'm highly looking forward to this one.

  5. The old long hair plus Bandana look that the hair metal guys had, it was smart that they started that when they were young. As they aged, the bandana could gradually expand and completely obfuscate the balding process.

  6. I’m sad to leave All Japan again but I’m excited to return to UWF vs New Japan. As a reader: AJPW - experiencing a prequel to what leads to some of my favorite matches. NJPW - so new to me. Last time we were here it was almost all learning. It’s fun because it lead me to scouting out more and appreciating new (to me) wrestlers.

  7. In 1994 or 95 I think, I went to an All-Star show. The main event was an eight man tag (all of the guys in the match had had singles matches earlier in the show, obviously). Robbie Brookside, Doc Dean and two other guys vs four other guys, one of whom was called Japan's Mean Machine. Threw a very hard Lariat, liked to yell Ask Him when he put holds on. He disappeared off UK shows shortly thereafter. Never thought much more of it for a little while, until I started buying Puro tapes, and there he was in New Japan. He wasn't called Mean Machine any more, he was called Satoshi Kojima now. There was a tiny indie show I went to a year and a half ago, where they'd booked WARHORSE to do the talent seminar/ work the show double shot that the big indie names do. It was in a primary school, drew well under a hundred people. One of whom, randomly, was actual WoS legend Kendo Nagasaki (without his mask). I recognised him, nobody else seemed to. I approached him during intermission, quietly told him I was a big fan, loved his matches and had read his book. He shook my hand. I didn't squeeze at all. Neither did he. Fit Finlay, he has a soft handshake too. But his hands are fucking huge. When he makes a fist, it's like the size of a housebrick.

  8. Back in 2016 when we were doing GWE, there was a question around workrate. Ultimately a match needs to both be coherent and resonant AND physically exciting or compelling to be considered good, but which of the two elements are more important? For me the meaning and consequence need to be there as a bare minimum. Alone, they don’t make the match good, but without them, a match doesn’t clear the bare minimum to be good. I think much of what made Matt’s 2008 ECW work good is still present in his matches even though he’s broken down because that came down to connecting to a crowd and knowing what to do and when to do it, but I don’t think he’s that great or anything. It’s more that when left to their own devices, and despite superior athleticism, guys like Fletcher, and especially Takeshita don’t clear that minimum bar.

  14. The contract signing was a good segment to build more hype for Knight. Him entering as Roman raised the title was great. Santos/Carlito vs. Street Profits was pretty solid. Was kind of so-so on the finish, but it got the job done and helped give more build to Rey/Logan. Shotzi/Chelsea was decent and more even than expected. Felt kind of weird since I have gotten used to Chelsea getting squashed, but she looked alright here. Cena's segment with Heyman & Solo was good. The KO one punch segment was dumb and fun, especially when he leaves to cheerfully tell Noble he did it. Dragon/Cedric was a good match and nice showcase for both men. Bianca's promo was fine. Her coming matches with Bayley and Io not really having any extra stakes did make the promo feel just a pinch hollow. Hopefully Bianca ups her aggressiveness in the coming matches. Knight/Jimmy was good. Continuing to dig Jimmy on his own since he ups his dickishness with the crowd. The post match with Roman's failed attack was another nice boon for Knight. No blow away great matches, but there four done were pretty enjoyable. Jimmy/Knight and Dragon/Cedric were eaisly the best and worth catching. Surprisingly dug Jimmy/Knight the most. The segments were mostly good. Solid show overall.

  17. It just finished. I walked in on Santana/Ortiz unfortunately. MIKE had on his Latin Kings colors. Nasty looking finish. The women's match was, well, a multi-person match with all that entails, but ABADON WON!!! So I'm happy. Let's hope they don't put them back in mothballs after they lose tomorrow and Halloween happens on Tuesday. There was a spot for them to chop the ref "on accident" when they were all standing in a circle and I was disappointed they didn't do it. Willow is so cheery that the mist only gave her black eyeliner under one eye, heh heh. Why Toni didn't just come out after the opponents and before the bell instead of interrupting the match? Takeshita/Fletcher got a full point as NOAH House Show Main Event. They did a rail ride so I'll count it. The best part was where Fletcher thought they were gonna do a forearm exchange, Lard Lad said "fuck that" and just hauled off and blasted the shit out of Young Kyle. Forearms/elbows were returned to later but they were nice and loud. Each guy threw and ate some murder moves, Takeshita worked default face and won. Fun stuff and once again the winner pleeeeased me... *rubs hands together with sinister glee* As far as the Don Callis stuff, I doubt he gets all these guys that he wants, and he shouldn't. A buddy of mine in Indy had a show last night (he's the vocalist in death metal band Obscene) and he went onstage as Callis with blatantly phony rubber scar on his noggin. If he gives me permission, I'll show you pictures.

  18. Top experiences for me have definitely been taking my kids to shows. Seeing them get so into it was such a special experience. But personally, for great wrestling, two shows stick out. One was Badd Blood, the first Hell in a Cell. We had sixth-row seats right behind the announce table. So, when Michaels had his fall, we had a great view. The other show, I was running camera for. It was the Impact with the Josh Alexander/Mike Bailey epic. It was so cool being on a hard cam for that. Literally had one of the best seats in the house for it. For pure fun, I'd go with Survivor Series 98. Yeah, not a great show, but me and some friends got mighty tanked for it and had a blast. We still talk about that trip. I got to see Hogan at the height of Hulkamania for my first show. I got to see Andre live. I saw Liger at Starcade 96. I saw The Shield debut. I met Flair after an NWA house show. I've been lucky to see some cool stuff.

  21. Ive been to so many wrestling shows, i definitely need to revisit this thread when i have more time, but the one moment that sticks out to me above all is seeing Akiyama v Kingston at Full Gear 2022 Zero Hour. I'm a massive Eddie Kingston fan, in and out of the ring and just to be present when seeing a personal favorite achieve something he wanted his whole career, was just, amazing in so many ways. The match itself was amazing and one of my favorite from the night, but the reaction of fulfillment, exhaustion and elation in Kingston's face after it was over was ust incredible. Seeing someone who you respect conquer a milestone like that is something else. Definitely one of, if not my favorite live wrestling memory.

  23. I made a locker room's collective head explode when I suggested not using Hard Rock/Heavy Metal as the music before the show. I said "How much Death Metal do you think is being played in the mini van heading to the show tonight?" We were in rural New Brunswick so I put together a playlist of stuff that was popular on Radio/streaming, high energy. When it came time to pick a theme for myself, I choose a pop style hip hop song, and the boss asked me why and gave me a bunch of Butt Rock songs I should use. Why would I want the same style that everyone else on the show has, I want to be different.

  25. YAY ABADON! YAY LUTHER! Also re: MJF's situation Max needing to find three partners, although the obvious choice is The Acclaimed, the segment with Joe gave me an idea. Hear me out on this, all three want the same thing from him, a title match, could his three partners possibly be Joe/Omega/Wardlow?

  28. I’ve been out, did Rampage not already show? I loved the Takeshita-Fletcher match (it was filmed first but maybe main event?), the finishing stretch really got the crowd rocking in particular. The Callis situation is interesting because no one actually wants to boo Takeshita when he’s wrestling someone that’s not like a Kenny Omega where he’s doing extra heel stuff. And we’re also mostly forming our opinions on Kyle Fletcher as a singles guy in AEW. I can say that if it didn’t come through, the crowd was very much wanting Fletcher to tell Callis to fuck off. The four-way women’s match was more interesting to me for the Skye-Willow interactions and angle than the Abadon and Anna Jay stuff. I get why people like Abadon in theory but now that they aren’t running the full “zombie” biting scary thing, it doesn’t really work. 2023 Abadon is a mid-tier wrestler. They’re not bad, but the scary thing doesn’t really cut it when they’re just doing straight up wrestling. Anyway, Skye and Willow had some good exchanges and I’m looking forward to what they might do there. Santana-Ortiz had a few moments where it felt like a legit fight and then the rest was a decent but nothing special brawl. They’re trying very hard to make this kayfabe personal feud make sense to the viewers but I don’t think it’s really working because it feels very fake. This is all I remember from the live show. I don’t think there was a 4th match?

  29. Listen, its really gross for me to even speculate on the health of someone I've only ever interacted with here literally decades ago, but I have ADHD (as evidenced by the way I oscillate between half my posts sounding like Keith Lee, and half of them sounding like Shit Ric Flair Would Tweet When He Is Drunk . Woooo ! ) and I definitely know the classic Vyvanse-and-Caffiene when I see it. I don't think anything illicit is happening, and I think the whole blow meme is or will soon reach a point where it's becoming borderline slanderous - again, absolutely none, zero, of anyone's business but his own, but I think a lot of people need to look at themselves and realize there's a non zero chance they are giving a dude a hard time for some shit that ain't his fault, and for being really, really passionate about something we all love

  30. Right on to 1987 NJPW then. 1/2/87: Fujinami vs Kimura: What a way to start the year. In some ways, it reminds me of 91 in how Kawada vs Taue broke out right from the get go, but I never really bought any sort of shared connection between them. Here, we've got the tag champs, guys with matching ring jackets! exploding. This stemmed from Fujinami not giving Kimura a match on the big Inoki vs Leon Spinks show. They had a fairly friendly match towards the end of the year (though Fujinami ended up being both the aggressor and winning). This was the rematch and Kimura said if he lost, he'd LEAVE JAPAN. He had a taped fist which is helpful because you can only ever tell them apart by Fujinami's wrist tape, his chiseled visage, and Kimura's leg brace. Oh yeah and he used that tape fist to absolutely clock Fujinami before the bell in a shocking moment. He wanted an immediate pin but the match hadn't started yet. Then he just wiped the mat with him, mercilessly beating him around the ring. Fujinami would try to lock on a hold and Kimura would just reverse it and lean on him some more. Eventually, after Kimura broke out his secret technique, the Triangle Scorpion Deathlock (where he sits on the leg while he has it; the announcers were going nuts for this), Fujinami had enough. He stopped treating Kimura like his pal and started treating him like.. Mr. Pogo or something, firing back, tossing him out, and opening him up on the post. He started getting revenge shots in, eventually cooling down a bit and just leaning on him, but Kimura got a belly to back and went for the Inazuma leg lariat! Fujinami caught it and put it in a Scorpion of his own and we got the awesome fighting spirit image of Kimura crawling to the ropes, a bloody mess. Kimura eventually fought back again (with the crowd starting to get behind him a bit despite it all) and things spilled to the floor where he clocked Fujinami with a chair. He then rolled it and hit a pile driver on it, and then the Inazuma Leg Lariat, which hit this time and got what looked like a three count (with Fujinami kicking up but Kimura maybe keeping his shoulders down). It looked like Kimura won it but then the ref threw a black thing into the ring and declared it a no contest as Fujinami said it wasn't over between them on the mic. Absolutely great stuff. (Here you go (though I can't promise this will be up forever): https://drive.google.com/file/d/12uvzDHuNFImJKT69_KD6uW_uuAvnjPuz/) 1/2/87: Inoki/Muto vs Black Bart/The Barbarian: Things you need to know: At one point, I think they say Barbarian is like "Giant Robo." They introduce Black Bart to people by saying he's the enemy of Blackjack Mulligan and like Brutus in the Popeye anime. In general, this was fun. Structure was ... Feeling out to start > Muto gets swept under > Muto comes back after a minute or two (he has to not just dodge Barb but also hit a victory roll out of the corner since you can't take out until you hit a move too to show you're tough, remember?) > Inoki has a fun test of strength with a Barbarian > Muto gets swept back under, this time for a long time and it continues with Inoki having to fight from underneath a bit > Comeback > weird finish. Barbarian has a lot of power stuff. Half of it (hanging tree slam, super cool choke driver off the ropes) looks great. Half looks a little dodgy, like he's not quite strong enough to pull off something that he visibly should be able to do. Bart hits the trash compacter Finish is weird as Inoki slams Bart and tags Muto as he's going up (so he slaps him on the butt, which is a very Inoki thing to do). Muto hits the moonsault, but the ref doesn't count. It feels like a screw up because right after Inoki hits the belly to back but Barbarian breaks up the pin and everything gets even weirder. Barbarian wraps the chain around his hand. Inoki and Muto takes a powder. They seem to be confused at who, if anyone wins. Inoki storms back in, and then eventually, Barbarian wrecks them with a chain fist. Match itself was fine but that was all pretty odd and (still) very Inoki. I've landed in a stranger place than I was yesterday even if the company of Black Bart and Konga is better than Mad Maxx and Super Maxx.

  33. John Nord wrestling the Barbarian in Nord's first Nitro match feels like a bit of an Easter egg reference for a certain group of fans. There's also a Barbarian/Berzerker matchup that aired on Prime Time Wrestling in 1991. Of course this being John Nord, he shows up for a few months, and then retires. Didn't even have the in-ring injury before leaving like Rick Martel did.

  34. Okay, so the Saudis aren't fucking around. I am looking at pictures and videos of their gala dinner, and they have EVERYONE who is has been famous from boxing and MMA in the last forty plus years there. Even across competitive lines. So either the Saudis are bankrolling on another level or this is some elaborate thing that's going end up like the Red Wedding. Like Oscar De La Hoya is going stab 91 year old Bob Arum in the heart and then pull out his entrails. They also have like random major celebs and folks from other sports. Cristiano Ronaldo is there. Like Amir Khan is bothering Eminem for his autograph. This is insane. WWE has to do something for Crown Jewel next week. They cannot be this outstaged.

  35. Saloum is fucking awesome and currently available on Shudder. If you have a Samsung or Vizio, WatchFree+ just recently added a channel called Scares by Shudder. So far they are just replaying some of the older films the in the Shudder / AMC+ OnDemand queue like Host, Atterados, and previous seasons of Creepshow, but I am hopeful they will eventually work Saloum and more recent movies into the schedule. As for really good Turkish horror movies on the level of Baskin (which is also fucking awesome), I'd recommend the Dabbe franchise (espeecially The Possession and Curse of the Jinn), Semur, and the Siccin franchise. As you probably noticed, most Turkish horror films are of the supernatural good vs. evil persuasion and are mostly just another avenue for Islamic education, but it is cool to see how the Turkish horror film industry incorporates religion into their content without being terribly heavy handed about it. It reminds me a lot of how the Indonesian horror film industry works. It is almost comical how Turkish and Indonesian horror films have just as many tropes as anywhere else. Any character that is not a totally devout Muslim or is too Western in their thinking and attitude is sure to die horribly or get possessed and become the plaything of evil forces.

  36. I can tell you what it wasn't; Wrestlemania 27. The first AEW Dynamite in Atlanta was pretty dope. The energy felt more like a rock concert than a wrestling show. AEW was new enough that everything they did still had that counter culture energy. I am, at heart ,a contrarian, so I loved being amongst my people. The fact that it was an absolute banger of a card also helped. Tag Team battle royal (even though it was won by the Jacksons), Omega/Hangman vs. the Lucha Bros, Jon Moxley vs. Jeff Cobb, and Cody moonsaulting Wardlow off of the steel cage... all dope. Mox came right by our section on his entrance. Everything about that show ruled. The return trip to Atlanta (Gwinnett, but close enough) sucked ass. I shouldn't say that. I got a Punk match and a Danielson match. But Cody was fully on his bullshit by that point and he insisted upon going over Andrade in a street fight. Just nowhere near as fun. I did get to boo Adam Cole, which was great. There was a handful of guys in the next section over who looked like they were gonna post very angrily online when they got home because some guy called Adam Cole "black and gold bitch" in front of them. I won't venture an actual guess as to who on this board I think that was, but we all know I'm thinking it. I'm looking forward to AEW's next trip through here. Honorable mention; Indy Megashow "Come Hell or High Water" here in Atlanta. First time I saw "Stroke Daddy" Starks. I got to see Mil Muertes live, who is a favorite. Met Tony Schiavone. Saw Matt Cross. Thunder Rosa. Hangman Page. Was a good time.

  43. hoo boy. in chronological order. Been to a few more events than this, but nothing particularly noteworthy. 6/15/97. WCW Great American Bash. i didn't go to this event. but my friend had convinced me that his dad was going (it was plausible, as said dad had gone to nWo Souled Out in January) and that we could go with him. so i wore my homemade Macho Man shirt and hung out at/around their house all day. well, by the time 6pm rolled around, i knew we weren't going and i was crushed. i shouldn't have been- this friend is a habitual liar, so it should have been a lesson for me. Instead, he's still one of my best mates, and every event below (save the last two) he was present for. Plus, it was still a good day. 5/25/99. WWF Raw. my first live event, i was 15. took place 2 days after Owen Hart died, but aired on tape delay a week later. the Acolytes won the tag team titles. i believe this was the first appearance of the "Higher Power" in person. of course, he remained hooded, so we didn't know that it was Vince McMahon at the time. 10/19/04. WWF Taboo Tuesday. went with 3 friends. my friends are loud, but i tend to be less so. i remember there was a family behind us where the mom asked me slightly before the show was starting if we were going to be loud and distracting. i remember answering that maybe my friends would, but we wouldn't be rowdy and that i'd be mostly quiet. i should mention that i (and my friends) was a Snitsky defender, so i was possibly a bit animated in my vocalization of his persecution. the mom called me out on it, but it was all in fun. 4/11/05. WWE Raw. i don't remember much about this, except that the marquee outside advertised "Randy Ortoz". i still refer to him as such on occasion. i remember using a camcorder to make a record of this. i wonder if someone still has it? 4/2/06. WrestleMania 22. the most memorable part of this weekend was going to a strip club the night before called "Heavenly Bodies". turns out, it was a bikini bar, so the ladies can only strip down to their bikinis. We were disappointed and ready to leave until we found out that it was "50¢ You Call It" night, so all drinks only cost a half dollar. WELL, let me tell you that we all drank a LOT of alcohol that night. one of my friends BARELY got out of bed the next afternoon/evening to make it to 'Mania. for real, all of us (including him!) thought he would still be too sick, but he made the trip. Also, i remember enjoying the Trish/Mickie James and HHH/Cena matches, the latter of which is noteworthy since i had historically given Cena zero credit. 4/1/07. WrestleMania 23. just one friend with me this time, as it was a longer trek. pretty uneventful, but i remember it for cruising 7- and 8-Mile in Detroit. I made it a point to seek out a White Castle, since i had never been to one. the hotel clerk gave us simple directions, and it went something like this: clerk: so you go down this road, take a right at <whatever> street. you know what a 'Michigan U' is? me: yeah, of course. right at <whatever>. what's next? clerk: <gives the rest of the directions> me: (5 minutes later, in the car with my buddy): what the hell is a 'Michigan U'? i legitimately have no memory of the actual in-ring product whatsoever 9/1/18. All In. front row of the upper deck. this is the event that reinvested me into current wrestling. 4 months before this, i had zero idea who most of these people were, except for what i would glean. mainly from this board. but i started watching BTE. started scouring YouTube for whatever i could see of Kenny Omega and Okada from NJPW. went on a Pentagon Jr. deep dive. I literally can't give this event enough credit for jumpstarting my love. Could not ask for a better crash course. 8/26-27/23. NWA 75. look, i typed out a whole Road Report in the NWA thread, so you'll have to read that yourself.

  45. A late Vince Russo-era WCW Nitro live from my hometown seemed an impossibility, but here it was. My friend's dad had box seats to the arena, so he assured me early on that we had seats. The day of the show, my brother and my cousin and I were shopping around downtown, we swung by the arena to see the big WCW trucks unloading equipment and the like, and while we were standing there, a number of wrestlers showed up and were walking across the parking lot, behind metal fencing: Rick Steiner, Kevin Nash and everybody cheered and yelled at them, in order for them to turn around, wave, nod etc. Tank Abbott showed up and everyone went silent, one kid was like "Shhh, he's dangerous" which I thought was quite funny, my brother looked around like 'I'm not scared' and yelled "Tank Abbott!" Tank turns around, glares, stalks over a few feet then yells "Did you all come here to see Three Count dance?!" to massive cheers before going in. My cousin, after this bit decides there's no way he's missing out on this (Because it wasn't my sky box, I didn't feel like I could invite him and my brother) and buys two tickets for them, basically last row, back of the arena seats. So we hung around near the arena, followed Jeff Jarrett around for a bit until the hotel security guards shooed us away, got lied to by Dave Penzer ("Is Bret Hart gonna be here?" "Oh yeah, everyone is here!") and just about half an hour before the show a big guy in a suit came up to us and asked if we had tickets and were sitting together, and I was like "I'm in a box, but they're sitting together" and he hands my brother and cousin a pair of tickets "Compliments of Mr. Goldberg". So my friend shows up and I'm up in the skybox with him (TERRIBLE seats that are adjacent to the entrance so you can't see the screen which is an absolute necessity at a Russo-booked show...the main event was Goldberg putting Midajah through a table backstage shown on said screen) and I scan the crowd for my brother and cousin and they are DIRECTLY behind the announcers desk for the show. All night long they are on camera (If you watch that show...and I don't know why you would, for a show with Sting, Rey Mysterio, Lance Storm, Mike Awesome, PCO, The Great Muta etc. etc. it is a TERRIBLE show...there's a kid directly behind the announcers who does the RVD pose for the cameras, that's my cousin!), they almost got run over by the Harris brothers doing a run-in, a chunk of table almost hit my brother (Though for him, the most memorable part of the night was when the one kid came up to them and told them that ICP was going to be there and if you chanted ICP's name all night they would come out and bring you candy like some demented Juggalo Santa Claus, I guess, and the kid kept chating ICP all night even though they were not there). My mom remembers later that night, checking on my cousin who was wide-awake and staring at the ceiling and he said "Best night of my life Auntie Liz!" I saw said cousin this past summer, he's married with children now, and 23 years later, he stil brought up that night and how he was telling his daughters about it.

  46. I never had a video store with a set-up like that. SO much WCW! Most of the places here had the bulk of the WWF big four PPVs but very few WCW videos. I remember taking a road trip with a friend to Vancouver and finding the Spring Stampede VHS (The one with Vader-Boss(man) and Dustin-Buck) and spending way too much for a used video because I not only hadn't seen the show but hadn't even seen the box anywhere before. And it was probably the best wrestling-related purchase I ever made. I probably set a record for the most times renting WM IV from a local video place. Even though none of the matches were good, as a kid nothing excited me more than a wrestling tournament, even one as lackluster as that one. If I'd heard of the G-1, my brain would have exploded.
