  1. AUGUST 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION THREAD

    It was an already completed film that WWE Studios purchased.
  2. GIF GAUNTLET - DAY 29

    Damn this battle of Gifs has me wondering if Andre had lived another couple of years and was still on the outs with Vince whether we would have gotten an Onita vs Andre main event in Kawasaki Stadium. Even with immobile Andre I still feel it would have been a spectacle.

    Fixed that for you.
  4. Wrestling What Ifs

    I think if he had stayed healthy Dynamite's overall demeanor still wouldn't have kept him employed for too long in the 90s. I could see him bouncing back and forth between short stints in WCW and WWF like Neidhart, though also likely he ends up in ECW. Healthy Dynamite vs peak Sabu would be just as big of a dream match for me as Bulldogs vs Steiners.
  5. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    Not super excited about the Hidden Gems collection for August, but they just dumped over two years worth of World Class in the last two weeks, so I will take that as a win.
  6. GIF GAUNTLET - DAY 26

    For me personally, something really awesome is going to have to come along to get me not to vote Axel, simply because that match is my 2nd favorite from the entire Saturday Morning Slam run. My first favorite of course is the Randy Orton vs Damien Sandow match were either (a) Orton forgot the "no neck/head attacks" rule that show had or (b - most likely) didn't give a shit and did his usual moveset so half the match is cutaway to reaction shots of Josh and Booker at the announce booth.
  7. WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

    The last couple of years he was in ECW they introduced him with Bombay, Michigan as his hometown. I think it was a wink and a nod to both the original gimmick and the fact that most fans by that point knew he was just some dude from Michigan like his uncle was.
  8. SDL is PROTECT YA NECK. 8/1/17

    Baron came down to attack Nakamura after SD went off the air and Cena put Corbin through the announce table during the opening moments of 205 Live.

    Is Gran Metallik finally a regular on 205 Live? If so I may need to start watching it again.
  10. NJPW World Has Arrived

    That's why I waited until January 2nd to sign up before Wrestle Kingdom this year. I would love to know how many they got the last week of December of this year from those wanting to get familiar with current product before the big show.

    Found it. Having trouble posting image from phone but it's February 1995 cover date for Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Cover story was "WCW Civil War". And the Abdullah headline is even more sensational than I remember: "ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER ROASTED ALIVE!" With the giant Parental Advisory logo next to it.

    I am pretty sure that whatever PWI issue it was, there was a headline tag somewhere on the cover along the lines of "Graphic Photos: Abdullah The Butcher SET ON FIRE!"
  13. 2017 WWN Thread

    I watched the free clip that FloSlam posted on their website. This looked like sub-Russo level worked-shoot garbage, complete with announcer repeatedly uttering about how "childish" these two are acting.
  14. JULY 2017 ANIMATED GIF THREAD

    That answer would be correct. There was a time period 93-94 where Sabu would just put himself through a table as a post-match victory celebration.

    Yeah, it's more that it was awesome when Kobashi and Sasaki did it, and then awesome again when Kobashi and Samoa Joe did it, and then not awesome then next 80,000 times it happened on indy shows from lesser talents and folks that never did chops until it was time to recreate that exchange.
