  1. Archer debut was fantastic. Loved the "uncontrollable" feeling right from the entrance. Like the empty arena version of Tiger Jeet Singh / Leatherface coming down through the fans with his saber / chainsaw.
  2. I feel like MJF is kind of above the title a bit as the #2 heel in the company. I was thinking Darby/Brodie Lee doing their best King of Cable impression. Which sounds pretty rad. Tony with "Brodie Lee, who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side, is the new TNT Champion" on the call to close it.
  3. Ready or Not was Hall’s and the Outsiders go to WCW house show theme as well (pretty sure they also used The Beautiful People a lot). I remember being at the Shreveport show with the shoot Nasties brawl and that’s what they came out to. Awesome song for a theme and awesome video.
  4. The Show/Taker match linked in the Santo thread reminded me of No Mercy 2008, which has my favorite match between those two and the bad ass KO "is he out? Then raise my hand" ending. Then I kept watching and man, both HHH/Hardy and Shawn/Jericho are fantastic. Sleeper bad ass PPV there, with the rare WWE three heels (HHH in this particular match anyway) winning the three main events relatively clean (when does Vince ever do that?). And the Shawn/Jericho one was the feud ender. 2008 WWE is pretty hit or miss, but all of this ruled.
  5. The one where the bad guy squandered up the money to send Valentine to Bond’s trailer and put him in an arm bar for two and a half hours.
  6. Bourne was around so many great things just all over the place. Kind of amazing really. Like Bourne was front and center for the Duggan gorilla suit angle episode of Mid South with the amazing tag with DiBiase against JYD and Olympia.
  7. Latest rabbit hole is Fit Finley WCWSN matches This is my shit
  8. Great post. I feel like there’s always this sort of anti-recency bias in GOAT discussions. Like to me Macho, Eddy and Funk are the three best wrestlers of all time because they could do absolutely anything (any style of match, anywhere on the card, against any opponent) at an elite level and make money doing it. And...Bryan is pretty much that same kind of guy. Talking, comedy, grappling, flying, selling, whatever. As face or heel. Against anyone. So for that reason I should probably expand my list. The only thing I can’t pinpoint and I feel like this is just a brain cramp, is a good old fashioned hate filled Bryan brawl. Possibly with buckets of blood. Possibly in blue jeans. I’m sure this exists and I’m just forgetting. Recommendations?
  9. The various ongoing discussions around Bret, Danielson, Punk and their (for better or worse) theory/mindset on pro wrestling got me wondering, who is your best wrestler that has a totally different idea of what makes good wrestling than you do? Like Shawn Michaels especially after his return, did a lot to advance the epic formula that we’ve all beat up on enough over the past 15+ years, but the dude could clearly go. And Kurt Angle with his ridiculous-ass talent, kind of suffered from coming up in that era with that definition of “good wrestling”. Like compare this to Punk who has IMO a bad idea of good in-ring wrestling and is bad at executing it. Or Bryan who excels at both.
  10. Kenny and Sammy was fantastic. Jericho cut a promo on a drone. Otherwise between the lack of a crowd, the squashes and Tony and a Rhodes on commentary this was more or less an episode of the muthaship. Needed some clubberin. I did really enjoy Cody’s pure sports, technical analysis-based approach to color commentary. That was great.
  11. The Summerslam Cena squash was one of the damndest things I ever watched. Amazing match in many ways. I really thought, for a split second around WMXXX, that they were on the verge of something special. Not a boom per se, but the best business since the last one. With Bryan as red hot as a guy had been in a decade, Lesnar strong, Shield strong....and then it all went to hell in a matter of weeks with the Kane/Bryan feud, subsequent injury and botched Reigns ascent.
  12. EDIT: didn't want to derail the thread Just rewatched this as well to chip in. Wow, I had totally forgotten about Hawk/Droz. Droz I get not knowing any better but to agree; I'm surprised Hawk went along with it.
  13. I am down for a random quarantine viewing thread. Last night’s rabbit hole was, for whatever reason, Mania promo videos. Can we all agree “Monster” > “My Way”? Because it’s not even close. I also got deep into Larry Z matches stemming from a watch of War Games 92 (and holy shit the talent level in that match).
