  1. The "ballot" for Portland is up at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lo1AeeS7jtyJ6DpbfUQat2gZ5ybf10Z-1tl3Uze81LY/edit?usp=sharing You can either download a copy of the spreadsheet in Excel format or you can choose "File->Make a Copy" if you want to create a version of the Google Doc on your own drive. Send your ballots to [email protected] and be sure to include "PNW" in your subject line!
  2. Is there a best place to post thoughts on matches? I started using the 1980 forum over on prowrestlingonly to post my thoughts about the first two matches on Portland (Rick Martel /Harley Race and Buddy Rose/Martel). Also, I'm working on an excel sheet for voting.
  3. Send me an email with your address and I'll look for it in my inbox. I filtered on the [email protected] address. Occasionally they have gone in spam filters erroneously.
  4. We had 11 ballots. I received my first ballot over a year ago. I think it's time to close the books on this set. 1. MS-1 vs. Sangre Chicana (9/23/83): 1,159 points 2. Espanto Jr. vs El Hijo Del Santo (Mask vs. Mask) (8/31/86): 1,015 points 3. El Hijo del Santo vs. Negro Casas (Mask vs. Hair) (7/18/87): 1,012 points 4. Emilio Charles vs. El Dandy (Hair v. Hair) (7/28/89): 982 points 5. La Fiera vs. Babyface (8/15/86): 981 points 6. Gran Cochise vs. Satanico (9/14/84): 979 points 7. Sangre Chicana vs. Perro Aguayo (Hair vs. Hair) (2/28/86): 967 points 8. Pirata Morgan vs. El Dandy (Hair vs.
  5. I think it's time to close the Lucha Book. 11 ballots were received. https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/dvdvr_80s_lucha
  6. I've got about a dozen ballots in now so we're at least at the minimum threshold to put together stats. If you haven't submitted yet, the ballot is at https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/dvdvr_80s_lucha Email address to send ballots is [email protected]
  7. Thanks to everyone who has seen in a ballot thus far. We still have less than a dozen, so I would love to see more! IT'S NOT TOO LATE!
  8. We've only got a handful of ballots in, so please keep at it everyone and send stuff in by end of the week! [email protected] Ballot is at the bottom of this link: https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/dvdvr_80s_lucha
  9. I have NJ World links up here: https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/best-of-the-1980s-new-japan-dvdvr
  10. It always takes a year to finish these sets. We always think it's going to be faster, but it always takes 10-12 months. We've always had less participating for non-English sets and honestly participation has been downward sloping for years. Certainly, there was momentum lost when we lost the old board, but the project will continue. I think Portland will regain a ton of interest because that's a lot of stuff which many of us have never seen before. I predict participation will again explode if we ever do another WWF set or if we do NWA/WCW.
  11. So glad you compiled this! I put the information together by wrestler on this webpage: https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/four_star_matches_won People with the most? Kobashi, MIsawa, Kawada, Taue, Angle, Benoit, Akiyama.
  12. Bunch of tiny vidcaps from Occupation of the Indies: http://japaneseindysleaze.tumblr.com
  13. I've been looking at the relationship between wrestler ages and match quality which has led me to assemble lots of lists of wrestler birthdays. Beyond the obvious (The Harris Boys! Gymini! The Bella Twins! The Usos!), here were some that I noticed: 3/30/1945: SD Jones & Ronnie Garvin 10/20/1958: Fit Finlay & Scott Hall 7/4/1960: Barry Windham & Sid Vicious 11/11/1963 Billy Gunn & Sam Houston 9/29/1970: Stacy Carter (The Kat) & Tajiri 2/10/1971: Louie Spicolli & Victoria 3/24/1982: Epico & Jack Swagger I would support all of these tag teams.
  14. To be clear, I think the original post was from spman on the f4w board. On 3/29/14 he wrote:
  15. I've put copies of Wrestler's booking contracts that were part of lawsuits/SEC filings on my website: https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/wwe_contracts Includes Shane, Vince, Linda, Stephanie McMahon and Jim Ross along with Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Kanyon, Mike Sanders, Raven and Ultimate Warrior.
  16. Draw is just an advance against your future paycheck. Essentially, it's upfront money so you can pay road expenses. It's not additive to what you're paid. So, when Sherri made $5,000 w/ $200 draw, that meant she was paid the $200 now and so her future pay for the event would have only been $4,800. In the article (at least in the original version we posted), we treated it like Sherri would have made $5,200 which is bad voodoo wrestlenomics.
  17. The original was filed as an exhibit in the Ultimate Warrior/WWE lawsuit(s). You can see the PDF that was in the case originally & the images at https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/summerslam1991 And yes, we (author Wooly & I) screwed up the definition of draw in the WhatCulture article. That was a major brainfart on our part we're pretty embarrassed by that. Unfortunately, once the article is published, we can't edit it. So, right now, it stays unchanged. Wooly even got an unsolicited DM on twitter from Colt Cabana explaining the correct d
  18. Great piece by @WoolyWoolhouse over at WhatCulture, WWE: 10 Surprising Revelations From The 1991 Summerslam Payroll Sheet It's another fun companion piece to Bix's great piece about the Ultimate Warrior in the latest issue of FSM. The payroll for the event was one of the exhibits in the lawsuit which Bix was chronicling. EDIT: And I totally screwed up the DRAW concept so ignore that part, but the rest is true.
  19. I reposted Top of the 2000s: 2000-2013 results over at pro wrestling only
  20. I am assuming Borash's might have come out as part of the TNA vs. WWE lawsuit. Or... Borash had to file suit to collect unpaid royalties. Since Chris didn't specify on that one - I am just guessing there The Borash contract was part of the Sonny Onoo Discrimination lawsuit. Part of Onoo's claim has to deal with how he was in a gray area since he was doing consulting for Turner -- he worked in their office, on their computer, sometimes had to deal with them for some medical stuff -- this was part of his claim that he clearly wasn't an independent contractor. The Borash contract was an exh
  21. I updated my website with some additional WCW & WWE Contracts if anyone is curious. https://sites.google.com/site/chrisharrington/mookieghana-prowrestlingstatistics/wwe_contracts Corporate Officers (SEC Filings): Shane McMahon, Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon, Paul Levesque (Triple H), Stephanie McMahon, Jim Ross Booking Contracts from Lawsuits: Brock Lesnar (2003), Chris Kanyon (2002), Mike Sanders (2001), Raven (2000), Ultimate Warrior (1987), Ultimate Warrior (1992), Ultimate Warrior (1996), Jeremy Borash, Sonny Onoo Good companion material to the new Fighting Spirit Magazine article (
  22. I already explored this in depth: http://indeedwrestling.blogspot.com/2014/02/wwe-live-events-daniel-bryan-versus.html I adjusted for size of the cities. Cena tours were off about 140 from the city averages while Bryan tours were off about 670. If both guys were on the show, they were up about 750.
