Did Albright wrestle professionally before the Steiners though? 

I'd backpack the Dr. Death mention because of the Varsity Club, but Rick was in it, so that negates the "before the Steiners" part.

Doc was wearing it in MidSouth before going to just trunks.

Didn't Rotunda rock the amateur singlet in the varsity club?

Yes, and in Japan afterwards.

A fair handful of guys wore singlets/short legs before the Steiners.  King Kong Bundy, the Russians (Nikita, Uncle Ivan, etc.), a couple guys in Japan.  I'd have to rack my brain, but there were territory guys with that look well before the Steiners.  I think Dutch Mantell wrestled in a short-legged singlet and furry boots at one point.

Right, but the question was specifically about the singlet with shorts, not the nut hugger.  I remember Mantell, the Russians and Bundy all wearing the latter, not the former.

Sorry.  My mistake.  Yeah, most of the guys I can think of wore the "nut huggers"/. It seems unlikely that the Steiners were the first to wear shorts with a singlet, but I can't fhink of anyone who did that before them.

The Prince looks like Mr. Perfect if he got his head squashed in a vise grip. Also either those truly are some amazons or Prince is like 12 because he looks like a kid in his jammies next to everyone else. This promotion and IWF should've worked some kind of invasion angle. I guess IWF would be the invaders since this promotion seems to have at least 40 or 50 people in attendance as opposed to paid attendance of 12 with piped in crowd noise.

According to WrestlingClassics.com, the Stormtrooper was portrayed by Tim Frye, who later worked as a jobber under his own name during the early days of SMW.

Anybody know who the dipshit in the Nazi gimmick is?


Oh, and fuck Ron Fuller for booking this idiocy.

The Stormtrooper is dumb as fuck, but everyone needs to jump ahead to the 26 minute mark, to watch the epic Jerry Lawler video set to Scandal's "The Warrior".

Anyone have any memory of what the plans were for HBK and the IC title had Syracuse not happened? Was he supposed to enter into a program with Douglas(that obviously got squashed by the Kliq)?

The plan was always Michaels/Hart for WMXII, so I'd assume HBK would have lost the title at some point to somebody, but I doubt it would have been to Douglas.

The irony is that Ramon actually injured Douglas so badly in that match (a botched clothesline had him coughing up blood) that Michaels actually returned to action before Douglas did.

Touche.  The point I meant was I don't think WMXII would have been a I-C/World, title for title match.  HBK would have had the I-C title removed from the equation somewhere prior.

Talking of Dean Douglas, was he his own worst enemy? If he'd just kept his trap shut and got on with it in WCW in 93 he'd have been in a pretty good position surely

Not with Hogan and crew coming in.

Actually, I got to thinking.  Do they just do the Ramon/Goldust storyline with Micheals? I am certain that they were planning to put the IC on Goldust either way, and they could have possibly done the switch in December so Shawn is still good for the Rumble.

Not sure if this is ok here or the what if thread, but does anyone know what the plans would have been for the members of the Radicals (Chris, Eddie, Dean, Perry) if they had stated in WCW?

Given the management changed 3 times in the 3 months surrounding their departure, doubt there was any?

Anybody have any background info on this promotion? 

Rusty Brooks has got to be one of the worst lead heels in any promotion, and Jesus, Bob Roop is horrible on color commentary.
