WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

Yeah I knew it was her, it's just weird is all. Well, considering it's Art, probably not.

She's from Portland, I believe.  That's probably how the connection with Barr was made.

Remember when Bob Barnett was the only person doing shoot interviews on video, and he only did them with Art Barr or Vampiro? Because in Art's one, he was talking about selling Pornos to Penthouse (of himself and Tonya Harding). But then he passed away, so who knows where those tapes went. Assuming they ever actually existed, obviously. Leave it to Art to invent the celebrity sex tape ten years before they were a thing (although technically twenty five years after the Hendrix one).

God, look at how much better and more real this backstage brawl comes off than anything WWE has done in the past 20 years.

There was an edition of the Banned From Television video series that featured a Harding sex tape on the end. 

...I've seen it. Hey, I was a teenager and I was into gross shit. I'll never ever want to watch something like that again. There was a scene I won't describe that you really can't unsee and I'll leave it at that. As far as the sex tape goes, meh, not interesting, even to a horny teenager. No idea whether Art was the other participant but I thought it was billed as her husband (Jeff Giloolly? Somebody else?)

Fuck, I loved every second of that. Thank you for sharing it. I really hope AEW is able to capture the ideas of rawness and the crescendo so wonderfully executed here and countless other NWA/WCW angles. That they already singled out the invisible cameraman shit when speaking on how they are different from WWE fills me with joy. That WCW had Jesse there and led up to the attack with a rather dull press conference made Rude's appearance and the attack pop all that much more. Nothing about that was clean and yeah it came off as real because they were snug and the placement of the attack within the whole press conference presentation. Great shit.

Rude immediately grabbing the front facelock reminded me of something I read in another wrestler's book, maybe either Funk or Flair, about how many real fights are finished with a front facelock. Great attention to realism there. 

EDIT: It might've been Foley's first one actually

Far from a great match, but it's cool seeing Caol Uno do pro-wrestling.

From those TETSUJIN shows @AxB was posting about -- the match you want to see is the first one which is Jack Gallagher in a gi vs. Zack Gibson. Gallagher is soooooooooooooooo good and Gibson more than holds his own.
