WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

Recommended Posts

Boy, that Randy Orton/Mick Foley Backlash match is great. Everything Randy Orton is good at is on display there. Just game and giving and selling and obnoxious and instead of being the Deadly Viper Who Hears Voices, he's just a natural, smug shithead willing to die all over the place who wins in the end, not because he cheated but because he could hang in there even if he has the Top 8 Overall Worst Tattoos In Wrestling.

Must watch if you're a fan of mean old brawlers punching each other in the face and bleeding:

Monsoon Classic posted an 8-man tag match from early 1999 of the J.O.B. Squad vs. The Hardy Boyz/Too Much......without Scotty. Who is this Kevin Quinn guy?

He was a midwest indy guy, teamed a lot with Daniels.

He was also the chief recruiter and original coach in the old Inoki Dojo.

Here's another Kevin Quinn match with an unexpected result.

Yeah, Quinn was one of the old guys from 90's - 00's and trained a lot of the indy people that made a name for themselves in the mid 00's we all watched and loved.

This reminds me of one of the first tapes I ordered from @HighSpots

It was called Michinoku Pro: Spots.

It was a tape that shows various moves from the stars of M-Pro and UWF. So many of the clips there were on the video.

This took me back!

Some great talent here man.

Nothing to see here, just Bob Roop, Boris Malenko, RON WRIGHT, Ron Garvin, and Bob Orton Jr. exposing the inner workings of the wrestling industry in 1979.

Wait, WHAT?!?

I always thought it was interesting how guys like Roop and Garvin and Orton worked for numerous opposition groups, but were welcomed back to places like Florida and Crockett.

I've always thought that right there was a big endorsement of their talent level.

A big gulf in talent level from Roop/Garvin/Orton down to Eddy Mansfield/Jim Wilson.

So much genius in this video. I would rather watch a SD Jones or Tony Garea opener from the cheap seats than have ringside VIP for a Shane McMahon main event. I am both smart and weird.

And, their protest did not really change much after all...
