    WCW C-SHOWS MEMORIES

    Man, every Public Enemy vs High Voltage C-show match is worth watching. Every single one of them has sort of hilarious botched spot, like a table breaking early or Rocco or Kenny Kaos blowing some sort of top rope move. And because its C-show, every match is only 5 to 6 minutes tops, so maximum entertainment bang for your buck.

    And the kid getting knocked out is Jado in his debut match. Welcome to the business, kid!

    Crown Jewel - 11/2/18 from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

    The only way this show is getting canceled is if the FOX Network executives they are dealing with on the new Smackdown deal raise a fuss, and honestly something like this would be so low on the radar compared with other priorities for them during a television season that is very unlikely to happen.

    Puroresu General Discussion for 2018

    It really does feel like the new team in place was getting blinded by "American and Western expansion" instead of eyeballing anything they get from the American market as an "add-on" to the existing core business.

    "Hey, cool, this guy has the same shit on his pants as we have on our armbands." Jun Kasai: "Mine are Buddhist you dumb fuck!" And then smashes a million light tubes over everyone's heads.

    I dont know what fantasy booking I am more disappointed didn't happen: Hogan vs Onita in the exploding cage headlining a 90s FMW stadium show, or Onita guesting as a "baddie of the week" on Thunder in Paradise.

    WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    So over the last month, WWE Network has posted pristine remastered film of Pedro Morales' first MSG title defense in 1971, and other MSG main events from around that time period. Pedro's win over Ivan Koloff has been released through various channels during the DVD/YouTube era. It's no longer inconceivable that Ivan's win over Bruno is in WWE's vault waiting to be found or converted, is it?

    WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

    Bruno Sammartino awkwardly attempting to put over the rock and wrestling connection with Cyndi Lauper is the best "cringe television" I have watched all week.

    [MOVIES] SEPTEMBER 2018 DISCUSSION

    This was in Los Angeles at Beyond Fest, a two-week long horror and dark movie festival. Nick is in town recording the new Bad Seeds album, and always possible he is roaming around the festival to discuss film projects with someone that's also in town for the festival. I completely understand the trepidation approaching the movie, and there are definitely some moments that are played for dark comedy, but the tone shifts appropriately and is quite ghastly and intense when the more super serious acts begin occurring. I think the film does a fantastic job of de-mythologizing everyone involved in that story, and really portraying everyone involved as angry young men aged 18-24 that really were flying by the seat of their pants and to borrow a phrase from the wrestling side of this board - "working themselves into a shoot" - as the Norwegian black metal scene was building around them. And Varg is correctly portrayed as a massive piece of shit and an awkward weirdo pretty much from the moment he enters the fray.

    [MOVIES] SEPTEMBER 2018 DISCUSSION

    Caught a screening of Lords of Chaos tonight. Jonas Akerlund did an incredible job juggling different tones throughout the movie, and was great at building the tension between Euronymous and Varg, even if you already know the story. Performances were fantastic. After a few minutes of adjustment I actually didn't mind that none of the American actors really tried doing Norwegian accents, better to just say fuck it and sound like you are just speaking American English than try to do a bad attempt at an accent. I could maybe see curious movie fans that aren't necessarily metal fans thinking the portrayal of Varg was hammy and over-the-top, when that is literally exactly how he is. So that was spot on. Also, Nick Cave briefly sat in the row directly in front of me. He had to bail shortly into the movie, but even just sitting in a movie theater seat the man exudes an incredible aura.

    It's even more uncomfortable when you factor in that Shlak and Maria Manic are dating each other in real life. No idea if this match is from before or after that started. And they were even once advertised as a tag team on an IWA-MidSouth listing under the team name "Domestic Violence" before Ian Rotten got shamed into pulling back from referring to them with that moniker. Do you know how much shaming it takes to get frigging Ian Rotten to pull back from a shameless promotional tactic?

    My personal favorite was when Jim Ross would always put over that Mike Rotundo won the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition...when he was a child. Like winning a football skills contest as a child was important in putting over that Mike Rotundo has a chance at regaining the NWA Television Championship from Sting.

    WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    The Hidden Gems uploads today seem to be Latino Superstar themed, as there's a Rito Romero match from 1950's Dallas, the first MSG title defense from newly minted WWWF Champion Pedro Morales against Blackjack Mulligan, Tito and Mil Mascaras teaming against Demolition from the Paul Boesch retirement show, and a Rey Mysterio vs Super Calo dark match from prior to WCW Monday Nitro in September 1996. I've only watched Rey vs Super Calo so far. It was a fun '96 TV match. I am guessing it was originally meant to air on Main Event since Mysterio takes a sunset flip bomb to the floor and there are slo-motion replays, but it ended up being scrapped when

    Goddamn. I really need to sit down some afternoon and watch that first Tokyo Dome show in NJPW World. I have watched the Hashimikov/Bam Bam match a dozen times but nothing else on that show.

    Are we assuming that him not stepping on the top rope isn't a botch? Because honestly I am 50/50 on that.
