I'm forwarding threw my DVR and catching up on todays Global...

 

Bull Pain is in a squash vs Ben Jordan. He looks like a million bucks here. Much better than the match I saw earlier. His offense looks nasty and he comes across menacing like you'd expect.

 

Craig Johnson > every other GWF announcer by a lot.

 

Skandor Akbar seems to have no heat by this point. He'd probably just been around Dallas way too long by now.

 

Scott Anthony just did a Vanilla Ice style rap promo. OMG. All joking aside, he oozes charisma and is clearly a better heel than almost every other person on the roster.

 

Lightning Kid is awesome.

 

We have a Scott Putski sighting, and an Al Perez sighting. My day is made.

 

The GWF looooved ref bumps for finishes.

 

Cactus Jack was a beast in his match vs Terry Gordy.

Horowitz was so great in Dallas. I remember one match where he was in control on the other guy, hit a move and just yelled "I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!" Popped the fuck out of me.

Jeff Raitz. I like his nickname and he appeared sometimes in WCCW and GWF.

Ah, thanks.  I recognize the name from old UWF and WCCW match results, but I don't know that I've ever actually seen him before now.

Ian hit a German Suplex! And Axl's hair, with the mohawk and feathered...sorta mullet in the back by his neck with the rest cut off looks bizarre.

He's my favorite wrestler that I haven't actually seen or have forgot that I've actually seen.

So funny to see Booker 20 years ago. Green as an emerald but even back then you could see the potential was there.

 

Nothing against Porteau, but what did Vince see in him to bring him in as The Pug?

I don't think it was a good idea to put Chaz on commentary.

I still can't figure Alex Porteau on commentary. Was his gimmick that he was a retard because he can barely put a sentence together.   Solid worker in the ring but he should never talk

I do really want to see the fan letters that Chaz received.  There needs to be an archive of all of this stuff somewhere.  If they posted scans of the letters sent in for a Win a Date With the Fantastics/Win a Date With Buddy Landell contest in Memphis, I would lose days of my life.
