FEBRUARY 2016 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

It amazes me how some stuff stays up for YEARS but yet other stuff gets taken down almost immediately.

 

Really fucking random.

And goddammit WWE, leave Youtube alone please. I tried to find the Flash/Cat ass-stomp on Dailymotion and only got eight minutes of Bischoff being an annoying prick.

I don't participate in "March Madness," whatever that might be, but changing eligibility rules on the fly doesn't seem very on-the-level.

You should join in. It's amazing.

Go back and read the great "Cesaro Scandal" from 2014 and you will see what it does to people.

Daniel Bryan got screwed!

so i was just watching thed 2/1/99 episode of WCW Monday Nitro, and there's this sweet ass match between Scott Norton and Ernest Miller where Norton straight up no sells all of Miller's offense and destroys him. Can i get some non-WCW recommendations for some of Norton's best work? i've never seen any of his matches from Japan.

 

couldn't find the match online, so i had to upload it:

 

edit: this video may be taken down, it has already apparently been flagged.

This goes on for about 5 months, fyi. Every couple of shows Norton just REKS Cat. With NWO Hollywood egging Norton on, saying Cat was calling him out and shit. It was wonderful.

Flair has said on his podcast that Blackjack is too tough to die despite his condition. They don't make em like him anymore but he's been through enough

That Fantastica Mania tour really made me interested in CMLL....then I watched a show of theirs....oh god, I just can't stand the damn slow counting and those shitty sounds the fans make...so I'm gonna vote strictly of what I saw in NJPW from these guys. Which was good enough for March Madness I think.

 

Barbaro Cavernario is the best! <3

the worst part is when they cut to camera shots of fans, which seem to linger for an uncomfortable amount of time and happen with absolutely no regard for what is happening in the ring at the time.

I think the description of "Janutty" should immediately be placed into carney vernacular as in any time somebody goes full on pro wres crazy, you can say that he or she is acting Janutty.

Watching his "Breaking Kayfabe" shoot interview had the same effect on me that watching Requiem For A Dream did in middle school. I just wanted to shower for like 3 days after and flush everything in my medicine cabinet

Remember his 2005 comeback and his great match with Kurt Angle?

 

It looked like Jannetty might've finally gotten it together.

Someone said his name on TV for the first time in ten years, and he's pissed? Come on, Marty. Get off the coke.

Juan Reynosa (who was the Taras Bulba that most people knew) and Manny Villalobos both passed away yesterday

Manny had one of the all-time great wrestling mullets.

Taras Bulba was one of those I thought was a total badass from reading the Apter mags. I don't think I ever saw a match of his when he was actually wrestling but I remembered seeing a story in PWI where they talked about him beating KVE with the clawhold. I instantly thought that anybody who could be a Von Erich with their own hold had to be a badass.

I am through 7 episodes of LU. Loved the three way with Pentagon Jr. - Fenix - Drago. 

 

Loving the show so far.

 

The character progression and just knowing everyones character is refreshing. The backstage stuff is amazing!

Late to the party but the best part of March Madness is def. folks voting WWE wrestlers over everyone after bitching about WWE for the whole year.

With Henry's (possible?) retirement upcoming, if somebody were to do a career retrospective/best of, what matches and angles should be included? When did the majority of hardcore fans think he turned the corner in terms of character and in-ring work?

No, the best part is people who can't understand why everyone one doesn't agree with their subjective opinion and bitch when a WWE mid carder beats a non-WWE guy.

04 he started showing consistently good work. His 2006 run with Rey and Taker is where I first found him to be really fucking great.

Remember when internet fans were counting down to 2006 and his contract expiring? I remember the sentiment around 04 being "just another two fucking years." Amazing how fast he turned it around.

Speaking of Henry, I grew up in a WCW household my dad started watching Crockett in the '80s on TBS so I didnt see any WWE until WCW went out of busines. Does Henry have any memorable matches during his Sexul Chocolate days? I know he has memorable angles like dating Mae Young knocking her up and her giving birth to a hand but is there any matches he did that hold up?
