I miss when rasslers would do the "stunned wide eyed stare" in photo ops. Abdullah was a master at it. See also: Brody, Bruiser, and Samoans, Wild.

Now they just do it whenever someone kicks out of their 3rd tier signature move 5 minutes into a RAW match.

 

"How did he kick out of my belly to back suplex?!"

Mance Warner disagrees.

Mance Warner is the only current wrestler I can think of who does it. Never get the sense of menace the fine gentlemen you listed would evoke, but I do appreciate it!

AND I dig promo photos wherein the wrestler has his/her eyes rolled back into their skullbone.

The usual rogue's gallery delight me with this: Sullivan, Brody, Abdullah, Lewin, Sheik - Undertaker is the modern example but he did it in the ring more than in pictures.

After seeing Flash Flanagan splat on the floor in the match I posted in the Blood thread I have no idea how he's still able to wrestle, and that was YEARS ago. Maybe the spikes are to keep somebody from pitching him off a balcony again.

I'd love to see AEW bring Maki Itoh in once the apocalypse is over.

All that's missing is COCAINE! across the screen as if it were POW or WHAM.

I believe that is the same SNME where Piper had the Halloween sketch with the kids. Boy he had all the Colombian marching powder he could handle before he shot that.

Really awesome shot from the Slam Wrestling Tom Farhat obit of a Detroit battle royal with a young Randy Poffo in the jean shorts.

This is the answer to some weird trivia question: Did Randy Savage ever dress and look like James Remar's character in the 1980 Billy Friedkin helmed film Cruising?

Now you know the answer is yes.

(BTW before I saw the caption, I thought it was Lanny. When did the steroids change him facially to the point where Lanny and Randy looked like they were from different families?)
