    I counter with the legendary Dayglo Abortions, and SNFU. (Somebody will get older school than me and bring up DOA but I never cared for 'em.) There are a load of really great crust bands up there too but that's leaning more towards the following side of the equation

    Canada has a long history of great metal bands: Exciter, Razor, Blasphemy, Anvil, Slaughter, Cryptopsy, etc.

    It baffles me that nobody's mentioned Rush yet... or Triumph haha. Fight the Good Fight!

    No love for Strapping Young Lad?

    Speaking of Dan Spivey....

     

    Completely random, but I really never saw Dan Spivey ever on television but remembered his name from the magazines and those silly elementary school book fair wrestling books. That said, when Gary Spivey debuted with Paul Orndorff in WCW, I thought they were the same person and was completely confused.

    When was the sleaze thread?  I think I posted here around 2005 and I don’t remember it.  I do vaguely remember finding it with the Wayback Machine.  Was the board a seizure-inducing green and yellow back then?

    I was still in college. So before 2003.

    A bit late with my 4 current wrestlers which represent what I enjoy at the moment, found it so hard to cut down to 4 as I have 6-8 (and I only really watch NJPW, AJPW, GLEAT and some local Australian stuff), but here goes..

    El Desperado: Surprised he didn't make the list of guys having an amazing 2022, always tells a great story and can feel his passion in the ring. Might have my favourite moveset in wrestling currently and I'm a sucker for an awesome masked wrestler. 

    Hiromu Takahashi: Possibly the most charismatic wrestler in the world, he has the ability to just draw me into his matches through his fire and character. I think its his insanity and randomness that I enjoy the most with him. 

    Shingo Takagi: When I think of who in the companies I watch looks like the ideal wrestler, to me it is Shingo. He looks like a badass and backs it up with some incredible hard hitting matches. I do agree that sometimes things can feel too choreographed but that is a very minor criticism. 

    Matt Hayter: Robbie Eagles really isn't my Australian representative on my list! Matt Hayter is a wrestler out of RCW in Adelaide that does wrestle in Melbourne a lot, so this is really based on live experiences so I don't really know how he translates on camera. He's an absolute blast as a cocky, arrogant shit-heel. Decent in the ring but his character heel stuff is off the charts (at least live). 

    I don't think I ever appreciated El Desperado until the last few months. He's had a great year.

    For me,

    Kevin Owens: He gets put into some of the legitimately dumbest segments on WWE television, yet to me, he never is worse for it. He reminds me of the people guests on the Muppet Show. He's still himself, even though he's put in an environment of sheer lunacy. 

    Shingo: I think he does everything well in his matches. 

    Nakamura/Boogs: The WWE-ized version of Nakamura is kind of boring, but teaming him up with a sidekick/bestie who looks like Freddie Mercury who shreds the guitar on their way to the ring shouldn't be this entertaining. I could watch them forever. It is definitely a case of the sum being greater than the parts.

    CM Punk: One of the things that that has impressed me the most about his comeback is how he sticks out, for all the little things he does in his matches. Not that he's phoning it in, but it doesn't seem like he's trying to kill himself in every match.

    I'll give an honorable mention to Cody Rhodes. Like he's done changed anything, character/promo/work wise. But a new change of scenery has done him wonders.

    Aren't they still using Judgement Day as the name of one of their PPVs, or is that long since done with?

    A little Googleing and it turns out the last one was in 2009.

  7. I was having this conversation with a friend the other day, as far as my top ten of all time. The only thing I can confirm is that Bret and Foley are always #1 and #2 (flopping depending on how the day is going). Everyone else is subject to change depending on what I watched last.

    This version of Randy Savage with awful painted black hair and a mesh tank top that has ridiculous white stars on it vs. John Cena in 2005. All my money. Take it.

    Everything about this era of Savage was ridiculous and amazing at the same time. It's been an eternity since I bought a wrestling figure, but I proudly have one of this on my shelf.

    Yeah, MLW has a point in that WWE probably did ask Fox, who owns Tubi, to kindly do them a solid and remove MLW from their platform.  Does it rise to the level of something that can get its day in court?  And, if so, can MLW fight that court battle?  This is America.  It's not about who's right.  It's about who has the stomach and the wallet to fight it out.

    Conspiracy theroy: Andrew Yang is funding this.

    They could split the 2-hour NXT into two programs, with the Main Event, and 205 Live bumpers, as well as change the announcers. Would the international partners get upset with that if they tried it?

    Quite honestly, the international partners might not even notice. Especially if they load it with Raw/SD recaps.

    The iconic version of the Cactus Jack shirt doesn't say "Wanted Dead or Alive", that's the sanitised version. The proper version just says "Wanted Dead".

    I never knew/noticed that. I guess it's time for me to hand in my Mick Foley fan club badge.

    Agree that the Hurt Business was ended way too early. No one in the group was ever that interesting to me, but somehow as a well dressed unit they became the squad. even with this stupid Goldberg match going the way it most likely will, it would have been fun seeing the old man spear Benjamin and Alexander on his way to victory in some contrived match interference spots.

    So, FTR are managed by Tully Blanchard, and Arn Anderson is the Coach of everyone in the Nightmare Family. So, bring in Barry Windham as the Head Trainer of the Varsity Blondes, and then hire Paul Roma to manage Peter Avalon & Ryan Nemeth. 4 corners match: FTR vs Rhodes/Johnson vs Blondes vs Wingmen. A Horseman in every corner!

    And with Ric Flair as the referee!
