Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread


Yes, Pillman was one of my favorites. Had so much going for him even during the start of his wrestling career. Had that standard definition of a "natural" worker. It was there in spades. He could work & talk. It doesn't get tossed around as much as his matches vs Liger, Four Horseman stint, & Loose Cannon days do, but his tandem with Barry Windham (another fabulous naturally gifted wrestler) was rather great. It wasn't the longest duo, but they pumped out enough to garner my love. Didn't hurt that it was a combination of two of my personal favorites. Miss Pillman to this day. Always seem to be asking myself that old "what would he have done if he didn't pass away" question. Better yet, asking what could have been if he didn't injure his ankle upon debuting in the WWF. I'll always have to wonder. He was an exceptional talent.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
