1985 MOTYC thread.

Hey all,

This is a concept which I'm sure you'd all like. It's the same as the current "MOTYC" threads - but being done for earlier years. I've already checked with Headliner and he's approved it.

I thought of combining a few years together but I think doing one thread per year is the way to go - as it'll engage discussion and get people watching/discussing classic wrestling. I thought I'd start with 1985.

Here's something to start the discussion:



Lets get discussing!

July 3rd 1985

Randy Macho Man Savage vs Jerry Lawler

For the Southern Heavyweight Title, Loser leaves Town

Video quality sucks but this is fabulous the heat and tension off the charts. Sit back and enjoy 20 minutes with a pair of the greatest ring phychologist of all time in action.

Not to mention Lance Russell on commentary my GOAT announcer.

Re: 1985 MOTYC thread.

1985 has to be the best year in US wrestling history.

Ric Flair v. Wahoo McDaniel 9/2/85
Ric Flair v. Kerry Von Erich 12/10/85
Jerry Lawler v. Bill Dundee 12/30/85
Dick Murdoch v. Butch Reed 9/22/85
Magnum TA v. Tully Blanchard 12/27/85

^^Anyone one of those could be called the best match in US history and I wouldn't put up a big argument against it. Fucking laundry list that rolls out a mile of other 85 US great matches, too. Duggan/DiBiase, Flair/Roberts, RNR/Koloff & Khruschev, Flair/Reed, Flair/Koko, Lawler/Savage, Savage/Jerry Oski, Flair/Taylor, other Flair/Kerrys, Duggan/Sawyer, etc etc et CETERA. 1985.......i's...I's GOO-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

Re: 1985 MOTYC thread.

I am not sure how I missed out watching RNR/Russians. I may bump this thread later on once I've dug into Mid-South.

As for my picks, it's Magnum/Blanchard & Flair/Wahoo. A little bit lower down is Flair/von Erich.

I can't find Reed/Murdoch. It's essentially a 45 minute match with a 25 minute headlock that is worked perfectly.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xdq...t#.UYTy2rUziSo Pretty sure this is the right RNR/Russians. It goes for around 40 minutes IIRC and I'm not sure why this uploader split it into 5-7 minute parts instead of 10 minute ones.


OOOOH I forgot about RNR/Jim Duggan v. MX/Ernie Ladd. Wait, was that 1984? There were two that happened in the same year that are both the shit. Could be 85, IDR.
