  1. There was a Liger vs Eddie match from what I want to say was a stacked 80s style Main Event show in 1995? It the Main Event before the first ever Nitro or something. The other matches weren’t great but they weren’t squashes. Guys like Duggan, OMG etc. I can’t find it on YouTube but I know it happened. Might have even been winner vs Malenko on Nitro. Maybe that was the occasion. Not that any match these 2 ever had was bad but this 1 was storyline driven somehow.

    Was watching this a bit earlier and got nostalgic for the bad promo thread. 


    From USWA, the video debut of the Dream Warriors.  Three awful promos for the price of one.



    First guy says they’re coming to Memphis even though they don’t want to, second guy says we’ve been waiting for year to come to Memphis. I always thought a team called The Dream Warriors who came out to Dokken would have been money ??

  3. AxB got long winded there for dramatic/comedic effect lol I thought that was pretty obvious. As for his serious points, he’s telling the truth about Lawler. I personally don’t care about all of them but not because they’re untrue things. As for 1 I do care about, of all things, is his turd guzzling yawps. I just couldn’t listen to that trash. He was definitely a reason I didn’t watch WWF.

    Hey how about Sting vs. Foley from the 2008 or 9 edition? Way better than it had any right to be whatsoever given the age and mileage of both men. I haven't seen it since it aired so maybe it was trash but I remember thinking at the time geez these guys are working their asses off right now. At the time you're only ten years removed from Hogan and Piper shitting it up in the cage at Havoc around the same age, so the bar wasn't super high

    Everybody likes Piper so it doesn’t get repeated but he had about the worst string of matches over like 3 years time that a guy has ever had lol! This was at a time when The Shiek and Tiger Jeet Singh were working regularly lol!

    Sting had some surprising moments in TNA. He could have been to them what Funk was to ECW they had any brains.

    This is getting off on a tangent because I haven’t seen these 2 matches but there was 1 where Rikishi took the Foley bump I think. It was on the tail end of the Attitude Era on a throwaway ppv and everybody predicted clusterfuck but it got rave reviews. And there was a match in WCW after I finally bailed where Kanyon took both Foley bumps I think.

  5. The Honky Tonk Man to the WWE HoF!!!!!! I saw it on FB and upon reading up on it it’s not that big of a surprise since he apparently inducted KoKo. He obviously made nice with everybody then.

    He might have been the first grumpy old wrestler to go crazy on the internet, and he was just that overshadowed only by mid90s Ultimate Warrior and drugged up Raven. Tom Zenk might have came earlier Idk. Is he surrendering his gimmick to them? That was his biggest gripe (of many many gripes lol) over the years. 

    I was not a fan but I support what appears to be WWE’s policy of inducting 1 guy a year who is thought to have never had a chance. With him out of the way we can get to the others!

  6. This is the most recently bumped up general questions thread so I figured I would dump this here.

    Where might I find those old 5MYNTSB threads from the green board? 5 Matches You Need To See By [insert good wrestler short on good matches or good footage]. Tracey Smothers, Brad Armstrong, Terry Funk were cool choices I remember.

    A quick perusal of cagematch.net shows there are only a handful of Koko + jobber matches:

    6/10/90 Wrestling Challenge - Koko/Jim Evans vs. Orient Express I
    8/11/90 Superstars - Koko/Ricky Rice vs. Orient Express I
    7/13/91 Superstars - Koko/Bob Frazier vs. Natural Disasters
    4/12/92 Wrestling Challenge - Koko/Ian Weston vs. Beverly Brothers

    So if it was a "huge" tag team, maybe the Disasters match?


    That would make sense. And I guess there’s a chance that the other guy wasn’t a jobber. I’ll have to head over to YouTube or somewhere. I know the match happened. I might have a few things backwards but of all the improbable stuff I remembered, it all happened lol! Even if I never found the footage somebody verified it (like the CWF my old man used ask me to look up).

    EDIT: I found a blog post about that Superstars episode of all things. It said Koko hit a couple of dropkicks, tagged in Bob, they beat on him and pinned him. That’s virtually what I said lol! I said 1 dropkick...so this has to be it. It seems like the guy would have mentioned the part about him landing on his feet though.

  8. I didn’t always watch the 1 WWF C show that came on during the huge wrestling blocks on local TV that I watched growing up. When I did it was all promos and squashes. 

    This 1 time was an exception, kind of. It was Demolition or the Powers of Pain or some tag team huge like that vs Koko B Ware and jobber. Koko hit a dropkick and landed on his feet. I don’t know if I’ve seen that done since. He tagged in the jobber and the jobber got pinned. I’ve been looking for that match for years.

  9. Eddie, Benoit, Chris, and a ton of others out of that mold sure thought he was good. Bret Hart was a different kind of wrestler/entertainer but he said DK was the best. 

    I still love pretty much any match of his that was serious. His Hapan stuff, some WWF matches (not all for other reasons like already said), just a pile of good wrestling. He great.

    Notice I said pretty much any match. There is 1 serious match that I can name, that most others can name that was just meh. I’ll go ahead and name it so’s not underrate everything else he did by virtue of everybody thinking of this match - vs Bret in 1985. It’s popped on on a bunch of comps. Just a boring, punch kick stalling match.

  10. How did I miss this? I’ve been on typical social media and all for years but inside wrestling stuff not so much even though I used to be really into it. What did DK do to make everybody so mad? I know he was an ahole but that seemed to be generally accepted as just another thing by all his fanboys on forums and stuff. Then I remember him making sort of a mean joke about the Benoit situation as soon as he resurfaced to talk about that. I want to say that was written off too but it’s been years so maybe I’m wrong. 

    I agreed with a little sympathetic something Bret Hart said about him somewhere in the middle, that what he was was about as broken and beaten of a man that could possibly be alive. If a guy ever paid his debts before actually dying through pure pain and suffering it was him. I’ll always have a soft spot for him.
