Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Windham, had he reached his absolute potential, could have been a top 10 wrestler of all time. And I mean US, Japan, Mexico, England, anywhere. Hell, he could be top 25 even now. How many American-born wrestlers are better? Flair, Lawler, Hansen, Funk, Guerrero, maybe Steamboat and Dundee......can't think of any else.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Thinking of watching the '98 bout right now. Went on dailymotion to search out more DDP matches and the selection is pretty vast.

I'm marking atm.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Someone else with Flair/Windham 86 at *****? Second greatest match EVER for me. Love it love it love it love it. Not often I'm for draw finishes, but I'll be buggered if that finish isn't PERFECT for the story they told throughout the match. It needs to be released on official DVD at some point.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Same here. DVD is essential.

At least it is easy to access online. (via Youtube in pretty good quality)

Their Crockett Cup 87 match has never been released on DVD either has it? That needs to be out too. Not as good as the others, but still great at around ****1/4-1/2.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Only Flair vs Windham match that has been released is the 1/20/87 bout, iirc.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

They'll fucking shove the near hour long COTC match with Steamboat on every set possible, but won't put another Windham match on anything? Bastards! As much as I love the COTC match, we don't need it on every fucking set! Especially when it takes up nearly an hour that could be used on a couple of unreleased matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Agreed on Windham and his limitless potential. He had the size, the agility, the immense charisma to make himself the perfect babyface, he had beautiful timing, selling, execution and incredible storytelling ability and an underappreciated ability of being a very smart and structured worker. I'd agree with Yeah1993's list of people he'd rank better than Windham, though Steamboat and Dundee are guys who may require another watch of their absolute best performances to be sure.

Pretty sure when I watched the BOTB II and 1/20/87 matches I had both at five stars. I don't really bother with ratings these days, but both are comfortably in the upper echelon of US matches.

Another gem of a Windham match is his Mid South 1987 match vs Dick Murdoch. Some rapscalion has removed the match from youtube, but its well worth checking out for anyone who is a fan of both/wants to see a beautifully done 40 minute plus match. Both men's long term selling is sublime and the match is filled with great timing and build to make everything matter and flow beautifully. Murdoch's selling of Windham's offence in particular blew me away on first viewing.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Picked up Brocks DVD. This should be good. Just for the matches alone.
