  1. Masa Fuchi after the splitters left to form NOAH. 36 years old and carried that company for the first year, post-split.
  2. Issue 11 of the ongoing scientific study to prove that Wrestling Can Be Anything dips into the NOW! with a look at the Marvel Comics/AAA lucha crossover, and then travels back in time for a story that involves Nazis, fake Nazis, champion boxers, skyscraper-heisters, and ghoststoppers, as well as finishing up the histories of W*ING & Kevin Sullivan! 44 pages, black & white, 10pt Trebuchet MS You can get a copy posted to your house by sending £3.50 (£4.50 for anywhere outside the UK) through PayPal to [email protected] Please tick the "sending to a friend or family" box and
  3. Double post! Cagematch's entries for these monsters are all over the place. They list Bob Baragail as working a lot of them in W*ING when he only really turned up right at the end. They undersell Rafael Rodriguez's tenure as Jason considerably.
  4. Working out Puerto Rico history is tricky but Chicky Starr took credit for the gimmick, bringing in Moffat from a New Japan tour to play Jason. Moffat said he hadn't even seen any Jason movies at that time and had to rent them in Japanese while in Tokyo. After a six month run in PR, he took the gimmick back to Calgary.
  5. It was Doug Gilbert, as one of the masked Nightmares with Danny Davis.
  6. I just finished writing a history of W*ING for my 'zine (cheap plug: wrestlingcanbeanything.bigcartel.com) and based it around the various monsters. The first Freddy was Tommy Gilbert in Memphis, and Memphis also had the first Leatherface (Mike Samples). Jason started in Puerto Rico with Karl Moffat under the hood, and The Boogie Man (Eddie Gilbert), Crypt Keeper (Jose Estrada Jr), and Grave Digger were W*ING originals.
  7. It's (almost) Christmas! And what better way to celebrate than with a look at some of the horrible ways that wrestling and Santa have combined, along with more on W*ING and Kevin Sullivan, AND a look at the brief lucha career of Los Thundercats!

  8. I didn't get that at all, but who knows in these crazy times? I didn't actually enjoy the NGI much, and not because I'm a lousy tipster, but So Much Fun was a great show with a really hot finish. The Alex Zayne thing is weird, though, because while he can be thrilling at times he's actually not that good, and Blake Christian is far better, but if he wants to earn money for hanging around the Performance Centre for a couple of years, more power to him, I guess.
  9. NGI today at 1pm (a civilised 6pm for us Brits)... who ya got? I’m going AJ Gray...
  10. Finally someone has juxtaposed the early history of the world wrestling championship with Little House on the Prairie, and you can read about it in WCBA #9! There's also some Star Wars, some Transformers, the greatest wrestling movie never seen, and the story of W*ING hits monster town!

  11. He's asked them to be there before and they haven't turned up, so it turned out all he needed was his friends (whether they're baddies or not, they're his pals).
  12. Yeah, for me the referee is the first responder there and he failed to respond.
  13. * They’re going in on Wardlow, which I like, though I do have my concerns that they’ve sacrificed so many big men to Cody and Mox that he’ll just end up another big fella treading water in the upper mid-card. Still, you gotta hope for the best and this was absolutely the right result – Jungle Boy can take a few losses and still keep his “up and coming hungry young tiger” aura. Wardlow looked decent, too. I mean, he should, he’s been wrestling for a decade. * Eddie Kingston versus Jon Moxley is turning into THE feud of the year so far, and the best thing is that it’s got a taste of the rea
  14. I mean, it really is. The lack of interest in NXT-UK means that it's a step down from any random promotion on IWTV at this point.
