Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Chuck Palumbo, Shawn Stasiak, & RENO aren't the guys I jump to when I think of "classic" wrestling.

WCW tried to make a lot of young talent relevant though. It was only too little, too late for the company.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Brian Pillman was a quality in-ring talent, particularly in his WCW light-heavyweight and Hollywood Blonds days. Brian could play babyface which was his best role for him as a worker, or heel which was the best role for him as a character. In WWF he created & delivered a cutting edge character at the brink of the Attitude Era. Brian fuckin' Pillman was entertaining and he was so passionate about what he did it broke his heart to not be able to compete at the level he was used to when he had that car accident. He had a good career and he is remembered by many fans because he was such a compelling performer. The man could work I'm telling you. Watch this match he had with Flair in 1990:

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

LOOSE CANNON~!

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.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

This thread needs more Lou Thesz.


Ah, two babyface wrestlers working a match for the NWA World Heavyweight championship in a 2 out of 3 falls match to see whose the best. I'd rate this match as ***3/4. Pretty solid bout between Thesz and Rocca. Thesz hitting Rocca with a powerbomb was truly a mark-out moment for sure. I didn't expect that from Lou Thesz. Both Rocca and Thesz were great wrestlers in their own right and it's truly a shame that both Thesz and Rocca despised one another, more so Thesz. They had really put on a good match.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Forget Lou Thesz. We need a constant Bob Backlund discussion in here.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Did someone say BOB FUCKING BACKLUND?

He was great in some of the early RR matches. At one point in the 1993 RR match, we had FLAIR, BACKLUND, DIBIASE, LAWLER, PERECT AND FUCKING TENRYU in at the same time. I pretty much came.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

FUCKING TENRYU

I remember being a young lad watching that event (on VHS) rooting on Backlund & Savage to win it. Backlund - the man who carried it.

That's a fun match. I tend to not give it any praise considering the year prior is the be all, end all for me as Rumble matches are concerned. Stupid point on my part, I know. Undertaker got demolished by GIANT GONZALEZ in this Rumble. Son of a bitch who's idea was it to stick Taker with that guy?

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Poor Tenryu in the match though, he was just stood about doing fuck all most of the time. Hardly anyone wanted to play with him . He attacks bitches with a broom in 1994 though lol. Everyone would know this if they read my BLOG~! .
