Urgh, I remember writing about the match and made a note of the crowd. They gave less of a reaction to the match that people over 10 give Cena .

Calling Bockwinkel 'some guy' is awful

Don't really know how you can have that at five either, but I have the Six-Man Hell in a Cell at **1/4 so :

You said yourself this wasn't over, Queeny.

I should drop a knee on your face but i'm not sure i've seen that match. Brody could pretty hit or miss because of some of the bullshit he pulled in the ring.

Isn't any surprise to say the match was basically Brody being super-human and Jumbo trying his best to not make it look like he was fighting a statue.

I actually don't think I've ever rated a Brody match higher than that..

re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)

At the risk of being banned from this thread I've never seen it. I always see it mentioned as being great but I've never gotten around to seeing it. Haven't seen a lot of Funk stuff from Japan either.

To be fair basically all the Brody matches I've seen have terrible endings or are as you described, him looking superhuman.

EDIT: On another note been watching the lucha 90s set I got from IVP and it's been pretty cool. Especially liked the Rey Mysterio Jr./Super Calo/Winners vs. Psicosis/Heavy Metal/Picudo match from 93.

Brody/Hansen vs Funks is great but really overrated by some.

Hansen/Brody vs Funks was an emotional, free-for-all war. It felt REAL. With an actual ending that'd be five stars and my favorite tag match ever.

Seabs fuck you.

I've actually seen what I thought was a pretty fun Brody/Jumbo match that I think is from '81. Brody actually sold his leg in that match.

Brody/Snuka vs The Funk in the '81 RWTL Finals is pretty fantastic, although a certain Lariat throwin son of a bitch from Texas being in the corner of Brody/Snuka just a day or two after jumping ship from All Japan doesn't hurt either.
