  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Has Money in the Bank been mentioned yet? This was a novel concept in 2005 but it's been done beyond death. All it does is devalue the belts beyond recognition because they never book the case holder as a viable threat, like ever. The viewer is always left thinking they aren't good enough to hold the belt and they don't deserve it. It was cool when Cena or RVD cashed in ahead of time because I could believe they deserved it if they won. The matches themselves are so old hat too, and hell, the concept of the ladder match needs to be reworked entirely. I miss when ladder matches told stories and didn't just serve as bump fests. They do these god damn things twice a year just for MITB and we've seen every bump there is to see. We've seen dives off the ladders, ladders getting torn in half, stacked ladders, and anything else you can think of. Just retire both concepts for at least a year and call me again.
