I've watched only two Mid-South matches(Reed vs. Murdoch)(Dibiase vs. Duggan) and loved them both. My question is what are some of the other great matches from the old Mid-South promotion. Maybe a top 10 to 20 list or just some key matches in the promotions history. I hear Buzz Sawyer and Arn Anderson were good there.

Goodhlemet at dvdvr/pwo made a "best of Mid-South of the 80s" with 150 matches and extras across 12 discs. It's pretty much the greatest thing in the history of mankind. DVDVR do a ballot where the blokes over there vote for the matches in order of how good/great/crap/fucking best thing they've ever watched they are. Found it:

Jim Duggan is totally bad ass. WAYYYYYYYYY DIFFERENT from his USA gimmick. Jim Duggan might be the most underrated wrestler of all time.

Then there's Dick Murdoch, the greatest wrestler ever.

I miss the old days.

At it's peak, no promotion can touch Mid South quality wise and it showed in the ratings when they used to be the top rated syndicated show.

For me Mid South Wrestling was, is, and forever will be the shit.

Mid South along with Memphis were my two favorite all time old school promotions to watch.

It's funny how I'm a Boston guy who grew up on the WWF and how much I love old school southern wrestling.

Weird.

The Good Helmet comp is stupendous and a must own for any rasslin' fan

I'm sure that TheBeyond, the board's finest purveyor of seventies and eighties wrestling, could post a match or two to sell you on the greatness of Mid-South

Seabs has two of Mid-South's greatest matches over at his megapost

The first is DiBiase v. Flair from Nov. 6, 1985. It's a work of art as it pertains to getting both an angle and turn over. DiBiase is a despicable heel before the match and Watts, on commenatary, has no use for him. Moments later, DiBiase is the sympathetic face and has the fans (and Watts) living and dying with his every move. It's so simple. It'll also drive home the point about how clueless TNA is with its turn-of-the-month

The second is DiBiase v. Duggan from March 22, 1985. It may be the best thing Mid-South ever did. It's Russo's wet dream as far as stipulations go - no DQ, loser leaves town, coal miner's glove on a poll, tuxedo cage match - but unlike his stip matches, everything is logical. It's an outstanding brawl

Mid-South/UWF was as good as wrestling ever got....

Barry Windham vs. Dick Murdoch is just as good as those matches. I think it's on youtube. AWESOME MATCH from the greatest and one of the greatest babyfaces of all time.

Yes. Yes it is. Course you'd expect that given the participants

Barry, Morton and Steamboat are the holy trio when it cames to faces selling a beating as near death....
