  1. So in terms of like, transcendental heroes of wrestling, I know in the US it's Hogan, Austin and the Rock, In Japan it's Rikidozan and maybe Tsuruta, and in Mexico it's El Santo ... did the UK/Europe have a figure like that? I've heard of Big Daddy as being huge in his time.
  2. I know it's not meant to be the focus of those gifs, but Steve Williams pulling out a handspring elbow is ... weird. Also, good grief, I forgot how fast and slick Bossman could be.
  3. This will sound weird, but, is Nate actually emotionally stable enough to be champion? The guy has pretty obvious social anxiety and hates talking to the press and whatnot, but he'll have to do that as champ.
  4. The chickenshit heel/doesn't want to get hit in the face heel. It's basically a full contact sport that allows strikes to the face. Cowards don't involve themselves in boxing, MMA, football or even soccer, there's no reason for them to be involved in pro wrestling. If it's a manager, fine, but if the guy is a full time competitor, him being a coward makes absolutely zero sense.
  5. Ha ... imagining Christopher Lee and Dusty Rhodes drinking together and holding court at a bar bought a smile to my face. I needed that.
  6. The man was also metal as fuck, releasing 2 symphonic metal albums in 2010 and 2013. He did the spoken word passages for Rhapsody of Fire's albums as well.
  7. So, would it be fair to say that Randyll Tarly is basically Tywin Lannister, if Tywin had purely pursued martial strength?
  8. I was about to say Christopher Lee edges him out, but they're the same age actually. I assumed Vaughn was younger than that though.
  9. On the subject of Randy Savage, the retirement match against Warrior ... was he fully intending that to be his in ring swan song and moving on to other things, or was there a comeback in mind the whole time?
  10. Calling it now: that kid squiring for Jon Snow at the Wall is the one who stabs him to death, not the brothers of the Watch.
  11. So, been watching this glut of French catch stuff that popped up on Youtube earlier this year. Some of these matches are just mind blowing. What I'm wondering is, why did this stuff get completely lost to time, to the point it seems none of these guys got their due from the wrestling community at large? Gilbert Cesca particularly seems like he should be included in discussions with guys like Gotch, Thesz, Gagne, Funk Sr, etc, but again, it seems like none of their peers ever mentioned any of these guys, or France in general for producing great wrestling. So what the heck happened?
  12. This has occurred to me looking at older videos and pics ... it seems like in the era of the 60s, every last fucking heel, and even a few babyfaces, were bleaching their hair ... even Harley was doing that for awhile. What was with so many guys doing that back then?
  13. Tenryu sounds like he should be doing vocals for a death metal band. I got the biggest grin watching him punch young karate guy in the mouth. Really fun match all told though. I loved him having one more exchange with Suwama post match ... like he wanted the fans' last image of him to be him punching someone in the face.
  14. Abby was a weirdly awesome seller in his younger days.
