Re: THE WAY IT WAS: BUDDY ROGERS vs. JOHNNY VALENTINE
valentine's style reminds me how generic the guys styles are today. it's more exciting to a degree, but when everybody does it makes it lose something. back when I started watching wrestling, you had the basic matwork and punishing holds, then they moved to the bumps and back and forth. when they did, you knew the match was heating up and a finish was coming. nowadays its the whole match.
liked the older style in hindsight.
