WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

Recommended Posts

Starting a new thread for the new year that basically combines "misc" and the "70s" thread. Basically that stuff that is online that doesn't really have a home anywhere else on the board.

For example - this was just over 20 years ago

We are all motherfucking old

You just don't want people to watch the best minis title match ever.

That was Virus in his old persona. Here's Black Terry in an old one.

Keeping with the MISC theme. Let's WAR it up!

Quote

WAR Commercial Release 4/2/93 in Sendai (1 hour 45 minutes)
WAR vs. New Japan
● Jushin Liger & El Samurai vs. Ultimo Dragon & Masao Orihara
● Haku vs. Dick Slater
● John Tenta vs. Rio, Lord of the Jungle
● Shiro Koshinaka, Kengo Kimura, Kuniaki Koabayashi & Akitoshi Saito vs. Super Strong Machine, Ricky Fuyuki, Ashura Hara & Tatsumi Kitahara
● Tatsumi Fujinami vs. The Great Kabuki
● Riki Choshu & Shinya Hashimoto vs. Genichiro Tenryu & Takashi Ishikawa

Oh yeah baby, that's that sweet sweet MISC

EDIT: BTW, Rio is the Renegade. Yep, John Tenta vs. the Renegade. Tenryu's booking method of picking random names out of a hat never failed.

I know I've seen that match before but didn't remember it, so watched it again. It's fun for a couple reasons:

1. A young, spry Jericho

2. A living, agile Bigelow

3. Vampiro showing once again that his greatest asset to the wrestling world was getting his ass handed to him

4. The Lionsault that legit knocks Onita out which Jericho wrote about in his first book, saying in hindsight it was unintentional revenge for him getting shorted on pay in FMW or something. Of course Onita almost gets immediate revenge by spiking the back of Jericho's head into the mat on an assisted powerbomb. 

Also, apparently the Tenryu/Bigelow/Onita team toured around the loop because there's a couple more matches with them on Youtube

 

And hey, for good measure here's a WWF fancam from Japan

I reviewed this show over at SC a while back

Everything on here is at least worth watching, and the last three matches are great with the main event being a straight up classic.

Someone uploaded the Christopher Daniels vs. Mike Modest match from XPW which I have no memory of. I am chalking that up to doing my best to ignore XPW

It might also be because it's Donovan Morgan wrestling Daniels in that match, not Mike Modest.

That too.

I kept wondering why Modest had more hair than I remembered

I'm not sure that Van Halen's "Dreams" is the proper entrance music for a Super Battle of 6 Men.

Speaking of hair, Christopher Daniels with hair just doesn't seem right.

This was just uploaded the other day, it's lacking a bit in intensity but still a neat little note in the whole Ishikawa in Canada weirdness.

Lucier posted this earlier. 

It's ~7 minutes of shine in a Bravo/Haku vs Roadies match where the Roadies just give the whole thing. I'm not sure I've ever seen that before outside of them wrestling the person signing their checks (which in this case might have been Bravo actually?), especially from the 85 Road Warriors.

This is pretty cool.  I read so much about this feud and this is the first video I've ever seen of it.  This guy's whole channel is clips or L.A. wrestling in the 70's, however most of the videos are less than a minute.  On the plus side, we are getting a look at some lost footage so be happy with that.

That's actually from the same show. It was a one-night tournament.

So they just opened with Kurisu kicking a young boy in the mouth. Welcome to WAR, Yasuraoka!

What I watched instead of Raw last night, all posted within the last week from 3 different youtube channels:

1.) Satanico vs Brazo de Oro, a sub-ten minute hair match which is about as good as it could have been. Oro's a very fun foil for Satanico trying to counter him with fat man offense and clotheslines.

2.) Bob Orton, Jr. vs Ron "One Man Gang" Garvin from ICW tv: This was a great little TV match, looser in certain norms than you'd expect (they go at it on the mat at the beginning and some of the outside brawling feels weirdly outside convention). It's also a great look at just how good Orton was ~1980. He's always talked up by his peers but we don't have a ton of complete footage from him pre-WWE. He added an extra twist or bit of oomph to almost all of his big moves and it was well appreciated. Plus, Garvin looks like the Second Doctor. This is worth your time.

3. Rip Rogers vs Franz Schumann: Schumann is very good. There are a bunch of matches with him out there (vs Zrno, vs Finlay, vs Severn, vs Liger, vs Owen, vs Lasartesse, vs Brookside, etc.) People should check him out. This one's pretty weird, with Rip's attempts at heat foiled repeatedly by the German rules and the ref. It gives the impression of watching hockey where icing is called every other minute or something. Still, Rip is Rip, and he overcomes it to annoy the crowd and get some heat anyway.

You reminded me that this exists. DEAN reviewed it years and years ago and said it was actually good. Then I looked it up and realized it was 25 minutes long. How the hell is that even possible?

Honestly I've seen worse... but I sure as shit wouldn't want to be in Lorenzo's boots.
