TFunk and BEaton would also be in my Ten Top. Are there any modern era folks that y'all would call out for fantabulous punching or is it a lost art?

I'd say "lost art".  Everybody switched to knife-edge chops and forearms.

I'd say that I think of top modern offensive wrestlers more as strikers than punchers. I'm always hesitant to trot out the 'rasslin was better in the old days' line but my top ten punchers would be territory guys most likely.

I might be the low voter on Juice Robinson around here, but that guy can throw a pretty good punch.

Also, it strikes me as crazy that more than a few members of the AEW roster throw some weak-looking strikes when Dustin Rhodes, one of the best punchers "in the business," is right there for them to learn from.

I'm trying really hard to think of one more so I can "rule of three" this...

Dustin is a great shout, I've seen little of Robinson so I'll take a look.

This is another Stan Hansen/ Bob Bachlund match where they beat the living hell out of each other.  Hansen is obviously awesome.  Bachlund is underrated awesome.

Both French matches this week were stiff as fuck

This whole match is great, but watch the strike exchange starting at the 44 minute mark, it is Lawler vs. Dundee level awesome

 

Bibi vs. Corn is our new 1962 MOTY as is basically FUTEN

Is there a best beat downs ever thread somewhere? If not I don’t think it’s be a bad idea to move the goal posts in this thread since there are so many similarities between clobbering and beat downs.

Here’s a darkhorse that has an argument for the best ever whether we like it or not IMO.

Yumiko Hotta and Grizzley Iwamoto kick each other in the face for ten minutes.  Grizzley has awesome Lita Ford In The Runaways hair.

Scott Hall and Kerry Von Erich of all people had some of the best worked punches that looked real. Bret Hart did also. Bobby Eaton’s were closed fists that he opened and slapped with at the last second. There was something cool about them for some reason, but that reason wasn’t because they were good strikes lol!

Here you go @El Gran Gordi: eight minutes of Flash getting battered by the proto-Brock Lesnar, Ludwig Borga. Scott hits a freak MMA slam out of nowhere too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Just a 100 percent pure uncut kaiju battle there. 

Speaking of which, look what just showed up in my feed. Dusty vs King Kong Bundy in a TAPED FIST MATCH! In the Superdome!

Oh, how I wish we could hear the crowd more clearly in this one:
