[DVDVR CONTENT] ANNOUNCING THE 1001 MATCHES PROJECT

Recommended Posts

For the top 93 matches so far, has the footage already been located on YouTube or since I plan to start hunting this stuff down, should I save the links and videos I find for them?

Not everything is up on the interwebs (especially anything that has been yanked due to the streaming services)

 

One of my projects for later this week is to link to the matches that are up.

But that ain't going to happen until Wednesday at the earliest

Can we recommend matches here or do we just point and laugh at you when you don't choose the ones we want you to choose?

 

This being the internet and all...

Sounds good, I'm pulling together links from WWE Network, NJPW World, and YouTube right now as I watch through the matches. It's not all free but thought it could be a good start and I'll share what I find.

Question, are you guys planning on adding old reviews or maybe even doping new reviews? I know it means more work, but I really think you guys are doing something great here and having reviews from the DVDVR crew on there would make this thing the best thing to happen to wrestling in forever.

I am not adding reviews for the stuff from the matches from DVDVR 100

 

Nor will I re-review something (I will link to old review) - though I may or may not add comments

 

Everything else is up to the imagination - y'all just have to wait and see

Since we all want to comment we might as well review them ourselves here if we feel so inclined.

I assumed if we suggested a match it was up to us to write a couple sentences about it, and why we think others should watch it.

Are we going to do this in the format of the books too where everything is listed in Chronological order, so someone could organically work through the list from beginning to end if they wanted?

HA!

 

No fucking chance

 

I can make a chronological order when I am all done - assuming I find dates for everything

This should end up as one of those "1001 _____ to do Before You Die" books that Ollies seems to have, well, 1001 of.

Has there been a post made yet that started providing links to matches that are available online? No big deal if there hasn't, but didn't want it to slip between my fingers so to speak.

Oh, and the Tiger Mask/Dynamite Kid match you have listed, it says All Japan, but do you mean the New Japan match from 08-05-1982?

Probably - it's comical how many mistakes we made in the DVDVR 100

I have the next post almost done - just have to add one matcch.

Looking for links for first 100 will probably be my "bored at my mom's project"

The next installment

 

DVDVR "Staples"

 

The next installment will be LARGE - just not sure when it will be done as I am balancing traveling, the next DVDVR issue and general laziness.

In that "Staples" link, every videos loads as WOW Riot vs. Lotus which I secretly wish it remains that way forever for reasons of DVDVR whimsy and obfuscation. "I ain't here to make it any easier for you dang kids, look 'em up on yer own. Why, back in my day, we hadda go get a money order and a stamp and... WHAT'S A MONEY ORDER?!?!?!" and/or kinda like  when the Zen sword master insists that everything to be learned is in that one basic cut and after you travel the world and learn everything else, you realize he was right. I hate when that happens.

They all load normally for me (and I checked on multiple devices)

From the linked DVDVR #129 review of the Shane-Angle street fight:

 

 

Angle then goes to overhead belly to belly through the second glass panel. When prop doesn’t break, Angle decides to protect Shane from taking another headfirst bump to the floor on the belly-to belly. His strategy is to adjust so as to catch Shane’s head flat on his own face to keep it from hitting the floor. Not smart. This is where I would guess Angle got his tooth knocked out, and apparently lodged in the back of Shane's head. 

 

One of the quotes that I consider as all-time classics for whatever reason is tomk saying something like "I mean Sabu did a lot of crazy stuff in his day but I don't remember him ever trying to catch someone with his face."  Thought he said it in that review, but it must have been on the board somewhere.

I'm amazed that Midlothian Middle School tag match isn't among the Staples as well. Although if you are going to choose a match with a spanking spot, Riot vs. Lotus was a better choice in that regards.
