Doubt that since the prospect of it was based on Val's life as an adult film star.

Not really. This made sense. The story was that Jake was blinded because Martel had sprayed him with his cologne called arrogance in his eyes. Like I said, this isn't for everyone, but if you enjoy psychology in wrestling, this is a masterpiece.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Masterpiece of wrestlecrap? Then yep.

Wrestlers bumble around the ring for "x" amount of time. Face points around as the crowd goes nuts for him in the direction of the heel. Heel tries it and doesn't have to same luck. Falls into a predicament, often times a comedy spot that leaves him in peril. Face manages to get the upper hand and win. Or, the heel lifts the blindfold to cheat a la Triple H vs D-Lo Brown from RAW Roulette in 2002. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Bad. Even for 1991 when Roberts vs Martel occured.

Well it probably would've been similar because before he died, he was making adult videos with Terri and it was obvious that they were gonna have Terri turn on Goldust.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Just watched the Blindfold match. Never actually seen it before despite being a big Roberts fan. It was fun and they did the best they could with what really is a terrible gimmick on paper lol.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Speaking of Jake, the WCW Dustin Rhodes 6/9/92 and Dirty White Boy match from SMW are definitely two of his best outings especially in his performance. The Rhodes match isn't a carryjob or anything, but its a picture perfect demonstration of how Jake can make even the most cliche of spots (such as faking an injury or deliberately over selling to lure Rhodes into a trap) and make it infinitely interesting.

I'd throw in his match against DiBiase in '85 too. Mid-South WrestleFest I think it was.

Great story-telling, psychology and working the crowd. Obviously not going to be a technical masterpiece with a 6 foot 6 guy and a 7 foot guy, but one of the greatest matches of all time. Perhaps the greatest moment in wrestling history when Hogan slams Andre.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Worst WM event ever. The most basic of storytelling combined with dull as shit sequences. The fans were into it just because of how big Andre and Hogan were as superstars. I don't ever plan on watching the match again in my life. One of the greatest matches of all time? Not in any sense of the word. Biggest match of all time? Good argument for it.

I watch it regularly. Good match, not for people who want technical wrestling, but the sequences flowed brilliantly, and when you have the crowd on your side it means you are doing something right. Just because you have two superstars, doesn't mean the crowd will naturally be into it, look at Goldberg vs Lesnar, one of the worst matches of all time and the crowd hated it.
