Hey guys! I need some help making a moveset for one of my e-fed characters. 

What I'm looking for: My character is a hyper athletic babyface. Think of Shelton Benjamin/Montez Ford/etc. (But white.) 

But he also has a love of old-school wrestling. I want to combine some old-school 80s stuff in combos that lead to him using state-of-the-art stuff. 

Example: He does a footstomp into a standing dropkick that send his opponent to the floor into some crazy dive to the floor. 

Example: Atomic Drop where his opponent bounces off the ropes into a Cartwheel Death Valley Driver and then into a springboard kick. 

Looking for combos that could start with a bionic elbow, monkey flip, backrake, ramming someone's head into the turnbuckle a bunch of times, etc. 

Thx!

Monkey flip, but instead of sending the guy over your head flip him straight up so he comes back down on your knees like a backstabber.

I'd argue that the old giant swing into sharpshooter combo Claudio did during his time in WWE might qualify here

Also try the other way - as many flippy/rope —> basic combos; like a springboard somersault into a cravat hold, or rolling thunder into a stump puller.

Recency bias be damned. I nominate the match on Mid Atlantic TV with Jack Brisco from July 1982. Half show long angle/half great match.

I seen some stuff from Portland and LA not too along, but is there in anything from Piper's younger days in those two particular territories I should go out of my way to see?

i wish there was video footage of Piper playing the Mexican national anthem La Cucaracha on the bagpipes. I think he told that story on his WWE dvd and it made me want to see it BAD.

Ooooooooo, I LOVE that one. Piper going amateur with Jack frickin' Brisco when you completely don't expect it. Just rad all the way around. 

I've got the Portland set but don't think I made it through the first disc... still. I blame it on every match being 2/3 falls and thus seriously long.

reading 1977 results on TheHistoryOfWWE and saw this

Quote

San Juan, Puerto Rico – Roberto Clemente Stadium – September 23, 1977
Andre the Giant defeated Gorilla Monsoon (w/ Hugo Savinovich) via TKO in a boxing match following a right hand punch; Joe Walcott was the special referee for the bout 

this match is on a few releases, but gotta love that that the choice for special guest referee is "guy who helped fuck up Ali/Liston 2"...

Walcott was also the Chair of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission, if you're wondering how he got a trip to Puerto Rico to work with someone who did business with the New Jersey Commission.

I haven’t seen the WM match but I’m not shocked about that hot take considering what I know about this sport that I’ve followed for forever. I’ve heard the story about what made the match great/taboo a million times. It’s on my list of darkhorses to check out. 

I haven’t seen the Ric Flair brawl with the drop kick either but IIRC I saw a 10 minute or so highlight reel of it on YouTube. That looked like one of Flair’s best matches even. 

I’ve seen the Dog Collar match but I need to rewatch it. I seen it as a bloodthirsty 90s fan and was underwhelmed.
