Sounds like some more Mid-South goodness. Koko seemed to pull no punches as a bumping heel. Think I made the facetious remark that Dolph Ziggler must have been a big fan of his during those days.

I think it was something wrong with the computer more than it was a lack of interest. Most of the time anything with Steamboat or Slaughter means it is something I'm down for. I'll get on it eventually of course. Especially if it's a classic match that must be seen by any and all wrestling fans. I'll pride myself on saying "I saw it" and whatnot.
Memphis .

Can't recall much about that match, Blondes vs Scorpio/Bagwell Worldwide 5/8/93 is outstanding though. Top 25 match in WCW history.

Yeah its well worth a watch especially if you watch the 'Road to Greensboro' videos that outline the feud and build to the Cage match. Excellent Cage match and the hype videos are exceptional in showing you how the match came about.

That scaffold match is the best match of its kind by about six million miles. The Dundee/Mantell scaffold match is good as well, but Dundee/Koko is just awesome. And not awesome in the backhanded "awesome for a scaffold match" sort of way -- legitimately awesome.

Fuck, Mid-South came out of my ass there and I don't know why. Only seems fitting for me to correct you, followed by you to do the same. !

Oh, it's pretty bad. I wasn't sure if I was the only guy who dislikes it, so I was gonna try and poll some comments. Roma's backslide in the match is the legit worst thing I've ever seen. To an extend. How do you botch a backslide? I'm more than certain the match you pimped annihilates the Beach Blast tag. Bringing up Bagwell reminds me of the amazing Stars N' Stripes vs Vader/Anderson tag from 4/15/95. That one has quickly rose up in my personal favorites list.

I'll be sure to do that. If not today sometime soon. Not like I had much planned for today later on except for bumming it with my bro watching wrestling. That match could be one of them. If he's interested that is. I might have got him too interested on Puro atm. Which is fine by me.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Where on earth do you find all of these old, great matches from territories like Memphis and Mid-South? Some are probably on Youtube but I doubt that ALL of them are.

I ask this because I'm tempted to do an old school project after my Smackdown 2006 project (I'm probably going to finish off February 2006, and that includes No Way Out, tonight). I need to broaden my horizons when it comes to older pro graps considering I haven't seen much wrestling that has taken place outside of the 21st century.

Yeah I mentioned in my review that there's a line the match crosses between 'excellent for the stipulation' and then being a legit excellent match in its own right. Timing the nearfalls and teasing the big bumps at just the right time, the escalation from Koko looking petrified to trying to actively win the match when Dundee falls from the scaffold. The way they beat the crap out of each other on a rickety scaffold and some dangerous spots like Koko tripping Dundee all create this atmosphere that keeps you glued to the screen. The nearfall at the end with both tipping over and Dundee having to fly round the scaffold to hang on the sidebar was terrifying.

Yeah Roma being shitty doesn't surprise me. Leave it to him to screw up the basics. I adore that Stars N' Stripes match. MOTY for WCW in 1995 imo and just an excellent tag match with a great babyface and heel dynamic. Vader beating the shit out of people never gets old.

A lot are on Youtube/Dailymotion, but Cal (Big Z) and Seabs on here both own DVDVR comps of the territories. They have Mid South, AWA, Memphis, Texas, WWF 80s as well as All Japan, New Japan and Other Japan from the 80s. They're around 9-14 discs depending on the territory and how much footage was available. Seabs and Cal both sell them far cheaper than the guy who originally created the sets and who also sells them. I'm ordering from both next week now that I've managed to sort what spare cash I have at my disposal.

VADER.

Paul Roma is utter nonsense. You hear his comments from the Four Horseman DVD? What a twat. Doesn't know anything about talent in this biz.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think I recall reading some nonsense from him. Wasn't there a guy on here at one point with a Paul Roma gimmick? Same with Ole Anderson basically thinking he was as good as Flair or some horseshit like that.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh sheesh was there? I'd have to log in the history of my mind and pull out that gem if so.

Ole was a knucklehead himself. He thought he was better than Flair b/c I think it stemmed from when Flair left WCW to go to WWF. Then upon his return Ole was booking and thought he was above him in that position.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah I'm sure some guy had a Roma username and would talk about himself in the third person. Might have made a thread about deserving to be in the HOF as well. Cal or Platt might recall him because I'm pretty sure he got banned in the end.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ole claimed that Flair was made NWA champion and sent around the territories because he couldn't draw . So Ole's argument was that Flair couldn't draw so he was made champion to get him out of Mid-Atlantic or wherever so he couldn't "not draw" there or some shit .
