@Themagusx1 - Glad you enjoyed that match. You can probably watch any Cactus/Vader match from ‘93 and enjoy it, though I think that one might be the most intense. I have Gordon Solie and Good Ole JR on near equal footing, but I’ll put Gordon a notch higher. Can’t go wrong with Gorilla either, he and The Brain were iconic together. For NWA heel, I gotta go with The Russian Bear, Ivan Koloff. I had equal parts fear and hatred for that man, so he did his job well. He was really great, and probably a bit under appreciated. How about you?

Have I just stumbled across a place on the internet where some wrestling fans are talking nicely and respectfully to each other?

Have I died and gone to heaven?

@bimmy-lee I forgot about Gordon Sullie are great. All of those guys are great, but you know what two guys that are lost in the shuffle IMO are Bob Cottle and Mike Tenay those are great announcer ears. My favorite Heal, The Butcher for sure, and I have a soft spot for Scot Steiner, he is such a great heel. Least favorite wrestler heel or face? For me it’s a modern day one but boy I can’t stand Matt Riddle. Don’t get me start you?

Also how did you guys enjoy DYNAMITE last night. It was a great show and boy that death match was awesome. AEW, shows me vibes of old school NWA.

@Phenom - Haha, this is the only place I’ve ever seen it happen. Online wrestling culture puts gamer culture to shame as far as the gutter is concerned. Feel free to join right in, we’re just bantering about anything and everything.

@Themagusx1 - A couple of great play by play guys there for sure. Tenay seems to get a fair amount of hate, but I absolutely loved his scientific approach to calling a match as if he was calling a MMA match. Really upped the realism for me. Certainly more professional than Vinny Mac’s hilarious calls, “OH MY, what a maneuver!!!” Though Vince is probably stuck in our heads more than The Professor. I always like Mauro Ranallo on NXT as well.

Dude, I love Big Poppa Pump. He got his start in my local territory in the mid 80’s. Scott Rechsteiner was one of the last WWA East champions before the promotion shut down in ‘88. For the Butcher, are you talking Abdullah? As for wrestlers that I don’t like to watch, Finn Balor is maybe my least favorite ever. I cannot stand the Slingblade or his Coup D’etat. Two of the worst looking moves in rasslin in my opinion.

Okay, favorite finishers? Aside from the DDT and piledriver, I always thought the heart punch was so cool. I always thought Bray Wyatt should bring it back. Seems like something he’d do, and I didn’t love Sister Abigail. For a submission, I always thought Benoit’s crossface crippler looked vicious.

I can't believe that Chris Jericho went through all that last night. I hope that match with MJF is worth it!

@Link41x oh yeah he went brought hell and back. Did you see 5st shot of Jericho as MJF was speaking where he held that broken glass light and you can see the anger in his face as you know he wanted to stab mjf with ir.

@bimmy-lee yep and I remember the Tenay WCW specials where he would focus on Japanese wrestling and Lucia Libre and go through its history. You mentioned your territory a couple of time, what territory east that? I am from Colorado so I am not sure about the territory that Colorado was part of in the 80s.

Just really quick my favorite finisher is probably the Diamon Cutter, I am and was a big mark for DDP and I love that finisher. Who is your most underrated wrestler? I fir me steamboat, just should be up there with flair. I just don’t see many people talking about him.

@Phenom oh no we nice fans exist, what are your favorite wrestling promotions? And welcome to the conversation.

Is AEW teasing Tanahashi vs Moxley? I really need to see that in my life All Out would be a safe bet for a match of that calibre.

@Link41x I would love to see that, and with Tanahashi first targeting Lance Archer for the IWGP US belt, I think Archer would drop the belt, and than Moxely wanting to get the belt back from Tanahashi would be great.

@Themagusx1 - I looked up Colorado, and it seems you didn’t necessarily have a local promoter, but you were right in the middle of AWA, Calgary Stampede, Northwest and WCCW, and of course NWA was national. I’d imagine you had AWA on local as well as NWA. My territory was WWA (the original, not the one that was resurrected in Los Angeles), run by Dick the Bruiser. In my town, it was called Bruiser Bedlam Professional Wrestling. He ran all of Indiana, the lower half of Illinois, and parts of Kentucky. It was based in Indianapolis, I’m up in the NE corner of the state.

Yeah, Ricky was incredible, obviously Savage/Steamboat from WM3 is an all time classic. I think the only thing that held him back a bit was lacking in the charisma and mic skills department. He also took time away from the sport at inopportune times for his career. Great in ring technician though.

Off the top of my head, my underrated guy was Eric Embry. He and Skandor Akbar had the USWA on fire in 1989. I was watching that after school on ESPN back in the day, haha.

@Link41x I was also pretty shocked when strowman got let go. He was super talented for a big man.

I know alot of people bemoan AEW for hiring WWE guys, but Bray is one that I pray comes to AEW. I couldn't even imagine what he could do with the leash off of him there

@Link41x Damn would have loved to see him reunite with Bodie Lee. I am surprised that WWE released him, he seemed one of their more popular stars.

I have to say that both AEW And NXT are awesome, but I am not feeling that Currenty dating story in Nxt with Gargano and his wife. It feels out of place compared to the Adam Coke story and the Samoa Joe/Carrion Cross feud.
