[DEC 2016] ANIMATED WRESTLING GIF THREAD

Recommended Posts

I wish I could have made this gif 15 seconds longer too. He just keeps on doing the squawking and the strutting after the match.

Wrestling really is poetry.

that was Rooster's finish?!

Ah, the old flying hammerlock.  Not sure how long Rooster used it.  I remember him using the fivearm much more often.

I wish he'd attempted to claw his opponents eyes out. Then pecked at them afterwords. Or had a spike on the heel of his boot like this hidden foreign object that he'd use in desperation. Then I remember Red Rooster wasn't some mentally unhinged heel, he was an embarrassed babyface

Big Boss Man in Japan was fantastic. I wish he spent some more time there.

The "Rooster Wing" was a lifting hammerlock, sirrah, nothing as magnificent or shooty as Mr. George Steele's Flying Hammerlock which did not even need an animal related nickname. The poultry-man was doomed from the start...

Thanks. When and how long was he there? I mean, he's still in his classic gear. Was this late in his WWF run?

1993. The same year DiBiase returned to AJPW... I think Dr Death might have gotten himself an unofficial 'overseas talent booker' gig at one point in there.

Was there ever a faster fat man than Bossman?

In regards to Taylor as Red Rooster, he used the Sharpshooter originally as "The Cock of The Walk", one of the worst named finishers ever!

He won the feud with Brawler with ti if I remember correctly

I've seen this gif (and the match it's from).... i dunno, dozens of times..... and I still do a double take at Williams busting out the somersault back elbow.

Doc painting his face and working tours of Japan as Great Muta Grande would have been a license to print money.
