Been doing it for quite a bit now. It might not be during their prime years, yet it's always worth a watch for some nostalgia.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Russo doesn't think very highly about Japanese wrestlers

I guess you could call this topic the Russo-Japanese War

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

I watched Mega Powers vs Twin Towers last night. I downloaded a Best of SNME set that had this match as well as all the build up. There was a really cool Mega Powers montage video that was really cool. Does anyone know what I am talking about? It was before the match and had some really cool 80s song playing while showing a bunch of cool Mega Powers clips with Miss Elizabeth. Then the way the whole match played out and the aftermath was beyond awesome.

Found it.

Beyond awesome.

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Speaking of Mega Powers, I always love watching this little moment:



Funny how 8 years later they did the exact same thing except with Tyson and Hbk, and Tyson was originally going to be the special guest ref for this match until he lost to Buster Douglas. Damn the whole Hogan-Savage storyline was awesome.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Cal/WOOLCOCK/Yeah, have you guys ever seen Flair vs. Roberts from Mid-South and how is it? I want to say it was in 1985 or something like that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiUs1MNrcNo 11/24/85, and it's spectacular. Jake hits a DDT before the match begins and Flair lies there completely wiped out from it. That one move just really did a great job of making Roberts look like a worthy competitor for Flair. The crowd also pop pretty nicely for it. This is Ric Flair in 1985 (prob the best year any wrestler ever had...I'd say definitely the best if I'm limiting it to US....well definitely the best I'VE seen, anyway) and it doesn't disappoint, so that tell you how good the match is. Has to be the best Jake Roberts match I've seen as well. And despite what some say about "jake doesn't have a lot good matches blab blah blah w/e" (which isn't true), being the best Jake Roberts match IS saying something. Yeah, it's tremendous and would be a MOTYC if 1985 wasn't one of the most stupidly stacked years for all time great US matches (Lawler v Dundee, Murdoch v Reed, Flair v Von Erich, Magnum v Tully, Flair v Wahoo, DiBiase v Duggan.....godDAMNIT what year).

11/24/85. Its excellent.

Jake Roberts vs Ric Flair, NWA Heavyweight Championship, Mid South (11/24/85)



Another great title match with a wonderful pre match angle and build surrounding Jake's DDT and its ability to finally put Flair away. Flair mocks and chastises Roberts pre match for his less than traditional ring attire which he deems improper for a title match only to antagonise Jake to the point where he DDTs him out of instinct and Flair sells it like death. With the bell having not rung we then get Flair selling the DDT for a couple of minutes, before falling out of the ring and eventually walking to the back outraged at Jake's supposed cheapshot and sly tactic. Watts gets on the mic and orders Flair back to the ring and we then get 17 minutes of great back and forth action with Jake constantly working over Flair's neck and trying for the DDT on multiple occasions, with Flair finding new counters to block Jake's decisive weapon.

Jake was great as the house on fire babyface bombarding Flair with an unstoppable onslaught and controls a great portion of the match with Flair largely on the defensive and displaying his resiliency and toughness in surviving everything Jake throws his way, before a desperation headbutt to the groin buys him some time and takes Jake down. From here Flair works a brief control segment before a wonderful spot where Jake catches the kneedrop and immediately transitions to a standing position to lock on the figure four which Flair sells like death. Both men then trade brief intervals of leg work with Flair looking progressively weaker and immobile with each passing moment, only for Jake's small package counter to the figure four being countered by Flair who uses the bottom rope for additional leverage and somehow again escapes with his reign intact. Also loved how they used the classic 'rule of threes' sequence with Jake hitting two big knee lifts at crucial points in the match, only to miss on the third attempt and eat a big bump that Flair would immediately capitalise on by going for the figure four. Also worth acknowlodging just how hot the Mid South crowd was for Jake the entire time, quite surreal when you factor in his notorious heel work.
Feck should have read over the missing pages instead of assuming no-one had answered you before I. That damn Yeah1993 beating me to the punch .

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

Just recently watched Bret/Owen WM X (I know a bit late) and I freaking loved it . Other than the cage match at Summerslam and the iron man match at a houseshow, are there any more matches between them worth checking out?

Re: Classic Wrestling General Discussion & Review Thread

why was it so shocking/heart-breaking when Andre tore Hogan's crucifix necklace from his neck in that interview?

I wasn't there
