Steve's Graps plug thread :)

Recommended Posts

Since we're on a new board set-up now, I figured, if you guys didn't mind, I'd plug my site again.  http://stevegraps.blogspot.com is the site with all my old Prime Time 88 reviews and now with a shit ton of .gifs for the newer entries.  I'm working on continuing the Prime Time reviews once I get the discs working on the computer.  They'll work on the PS3 but not on the PC, anyone know of any free DVD player software besides Windows Media Player?

Glad to see you're posting reviews again.

Try VLC or Media Player Classic.

Thanks for the compliment, I wasn't sure too many people cared about the reviews!  I'll try downloading those players and I can start on Prime Time again.

I've decided to resurrect my blog and this post, from the grave and beyond.  I just did a bio on 1950's journeyman, Bill Melby.  For my site, I'll still be focusing on a lot of WWWF/McMahon/New York stuff but I'm always interested in branching out to other obscure stuff like Melby.  I hope you guys enjoy it.

Steve posted this over at WC and it's a great piece of work. We need more historians covering the second and third tier guys. I know a good bit of wrestling history, and while Melby was a name I was somewhat familiar with, Steve's article is simply a wealth of information on a guy who has been almost totally forgotten.

 

Well done, sir! Well done!

I just posted an article on the father of Nick Bockwinkel, Warren Bockwinkel.  Hope everyone likes it!

I just uploaded a look at a 1991 Tito Santana win over the Undertaker.  I plan on doing some other updates in the next week, as well.

I put up a new Backlund match with a small retrospective on El Olympico in New York.

 

The main reason I wanted to post this reply was to ask you guys about my gifs.  Do you guys think I have too many gifs?  Is it slowing down or deterring anyone from visiting the blog?  I really enjoy putting up the gifs but I don't want to put up too many, if they are bothering anyone.

I just finished an article on the formation of the WWWA, in 1963, right alongside the WWWF.

I guess I'm back doing obscure posts, and I just finished one on the Powers of Pain/Super Assassins.  I've been going through old Observers and I have some other stuff in mind for future articles.

I promise I won't hype every single new post I make but I'm pretty excited about my new project.  I'm starting to look at who had the strongest and weakest WWE championship reigns as heels.  I really am intrigued by the dichotomy between the McMahon's booking of babyface champs versus heel champs.  I'm going to use results to look at booking of champions and see how far I can get.  I'll be looking for clean wins and losses, and who those were against.  I also have a post on AWA enhancement star George Gadaski at my page.

I will be very interested in your conclusions regarding Superst*r Billy Graham. Was that a great missed opportunity or did Vince dodge a bullet?

Yea, I'm in the middle of it now.  Surprisingly, he got a fair amount of clean wins.

In fact, here it is: Superstar Billy Graham

Very nice, and just to remind folks,  this is what a champion looks like:

You couldn't really call Superstar Graham a heel champion.  It would be like calling Stone Cold Steve Austin a heel champion.

Indeed, he was OUR champion, the heart breaker, the scene maker; the show stopper, the big bopper; the man of the hour, the tower of power; way toooo sweet to ever be sour.

Can you dig it?
