  1. I'm going through editing my book for shopping it to the publishers. I had my mentor at my alma mater read through it and it's so amazing to realize that we all live in a bubble as wrestling fans. I'm using some wrestling terminology and she doesn't get what they mean. Plus, she seemed to think that the WON might have been some wrestling scholarly journal that the business has going for it. It's trippy to go through and read her notes and to realize this stuff. 

  2. I really liked some of the tag matches in AEW, probably the YB/Eddie and Mox, and YB/PAC and Fenix. I also really loved Sammy/MJF from last night. I don't mean to parrot Dave but I really thought that was one of the best AEW matches in history. Maybe top 5 or 7, definitely 10.

  3. Cultural impact? Like, wrestling culture, or American culture? What does that mean? I'm saying the same thing I say whenever they do a list like this, the Demos should be higher. Jesus, if it's just WWE stuff, Demos should be higher than LOD, IMO. Who the hells makes these?

    Anyways, I did a thing today. I spent $400 on 100 issues of the Observer from 1988 and 1989. Did I do a stupid thing? Some guy on Reddit summarizes some of these but I'm hoping there's more in them than that stuff. I'm not sure they'll ever be on the F4W site, or at least not until they get past 2007 or so.

  4. I don't know where else to post this but I've been thinking about collecting Observers, specifically older ones that aren't digital. Does anyone here do that and do you feel it's worth it, in terms of finding shit out for research, etc.? I know sometimes on Reddit they summarize old issues and I'm wondering if those are enough or if there's more cool stuff in them.

    Every match I see of his, he surprises me with something new. He did that and the jumping stunner in that match. Plus, his leapfrog is insane and he has done a standing springboard thingy before on Dark. Probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. I think he'll end up being a great Jeff Hardy like sympathetic babyface.

  6. I have two questions for you fine folks here. First, does anyone know how I go about submitting match listings to wrestlingdata.com? I've contacted them three times and never receive a response. I'm writing a book and going through newspapers and I'm documenting dozens of listings not in the database.

    Secondly, anyone know why the WWF belt changed colors a ton during Warrior's reign as champion in 1990? I did read in an Observer about them tinkering with Warrior's appearance after it was clear he wasn't drawing. Was that part of it, does anyone know?

  7. I don't know if anyone really cares but you guys seem to like this stuff. I've started posting cool pictures from newspaper articles I'm looking through on my Twitter @stevesgraps. I'm working on a book and if I see some cool pics I've been sharing them. Mostly stuff from the 60s and prior but still. I figured some of you might like this kind of stuff.

    They had the English feed as well. And yes the show was great. The last 4 matches in particular. Muta match started slow but was fantastic after the first 10 or so. Fujita-Sugiura was the match of the night.

    Thanks, I signed up for it, and watched an hour so far of the show. I don't know why but I've always been fascinated with the company since its inception. I just wish they had more older stuff to stream.

  9. This may have already been covered here but do you guys think Nitro and WCW would have done nearly as well if they had been on a different night, other than Monday? Did they really need to go head-to-head to make it work? They were already doing good viewership for the Saturday show and had a good fanbase, by 1995.
