Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Tried watching some old school wrestling (flair/windham flair/steamboat) and just couldn't get emotionally invested into it. Old school wrestling tends to be slow, chop after chop, punch after punch, lots of restholds, armdrags and hardly any believable near falls. Now don't get me wrong I love technical wrestling but old school wrestling just seems to fucking bore me, It feels like a chore sitting through some matches and a lot of the wrestlers seem really slow and lathargic. Just my opinion, anyone else feel the same?

I feel like wrestlings progressed a lot over the years and become more exciting, I just don't see the praise over some old school wrestling matches.
