    Pacific Coast Wrestling

    Pacific Wrestling Showcase from the Olympic Auditorium , Los Angeles , on ESPN / TSN, Steven Regal vs. Dennis Condrey British Steel and the Midnight Express are headed for an epic showdown at San Diego Battleground. The loser of the fall of that match will be forced to leave Pacific Coast Wrestling, which means that one of those two teams will be no more , not just in PCW but anywhere. This had to be at the top of both competitors minds as Steven Regal and Dennis Condrey squared off in a singles match. Young Regal brought his considerable technical skills to the fray, catching Condrey in several rollups and submission holds. But Condrey was able to bring his own deep well of cunning experience, always finding a way out of any trap, by hook or by crook. This proved to be the deciding factor as Condrey was able to block an attempted Regal-Plex and hook Regal in an inside cradle for the one two three. Not a good omen for San Diego Battleground and British Steel may well be worried for their high stakes match. Eddie Gilbert vs. Randy Rose Gilbert has been doing battle with the Crazy Gang, most notably with "Cowboy" Bob Orton. Tonight, he would face one half of the Vice Squad in "Ravishing" Randy Rose. While Rose was quite a handful for "Hot Stuff" to deal with, the former Pacific Heavyweight Champ was ultimately able to take the win when he caught Rose coming off the ropes and hit the Hot Shot. But as he was going for the pinfall, Bob Orton came out and started jawing with Gilbert's manager Missy Hyatt. Hyatt wasn't going to take any of his guff and actually slapped his face when he went to far. An enraged Bob Orton grabbed her by the wrist , and Missy had a few moments of pure terror before her man Eddie came storming out of the ring to her rescue, chasing Orton back to the locker room. Sooner or later, these two will have to have their ultimate showdown. Badd Company & Vic Steamboat vs. The Bomb Squad (Chris Candido & Al Snow) & Jack Victory Unsurprisingly, Missy Hyatt did not join her younger charges for this match, and the effect of that showed. Badd Company seemed unfocused and off kilter in this match, only tagging with each other and failing to bring Steamboat into the match. The members of the Hollywood Knights hungrily took advantage of that during the match, and Tanaka failed to notice Snow doing a sneak tag in to Victory. Victory blindsided Tanaka with a clothesline to the back of the head , then hammered on him with lefts and rights before executing the Victory Plex for the pinfall. A disappointing result for Badd Company and Steamboat, and Tanaka and Diamond seemed particularly dejected. Steamboat tried to give them a pep talk and be supportive , but Tanaka and Diamond didn't want to hear any of it. Larry Cameron vs. Ed Gantner Two other teams locked in an epic feud are the Wild Bulls and Iron & Steel, having been locked in a war with each other for much of the year. This singles match between two members of each team was a hard hitting power battle, with the two muscular grapplers throwing everything they had at each other. Gantner was incredibly close to taking the win when he went for the Bull Hammer (running forearm smash to the face), but Cameron blocked it with a boot to the chest, then followed up with the Harlem Hammer (running double axehandle to the back of the head and neck). A hard fought win, but one gets the feeling that the final battle between these two teams is coming up fast. Battle Royal for a Pacific Heavyweight Title shot at San Diego Battleground : One Man Gang, Stan Hansen, Ron Simmons, Barry Windham, Tony St. Clair, Ed Wiskowski , Shane Douglas, Steve Blackman, Brian Knobbs , Rick Steiner, Brian Adams, Chris Adams, Vic Steamboat, Joel Deaton, Mr. Hito, Nick Busick, The Great Muta, Brickhouse Brown, Brian Pillman, Hector Guerrero The main event had incredibly high stakes, with the winner getting a shot at the Pacific Heavyweight Title at San Diego Battleground, currently held by "Playboy" Buddy Rose. Brian Adams and Chris Adams immediately went after each other, which ended up costing them as Nick Busick and Ed Wiskowski took advantage and used their focus on each other to toss them from the ring. Several wrestlers tried to gang up on the One Man Gang, trying to get him out early, but the big 747 would not go out so easy, fighting off his attackers and throwing out Steamboat and Brickhouse. Tony St. Clair had a good night, eliminating Ed Wiskowski, Rick Steiner and Brian Knobbs, but Muta caught him with a blast of the green mist to the face before spin kicking him out of the ring. An impressive elimination but he took to much time gloating over it, leading to Douglas and Blackman hitting a double dropkick to send him flying out of the ring. The two members of Black Gold worked well together, also eliminating Joel Deaton and Mr. Hito, but Stan Hansen put an end to their run with a double lariat. It eventually came down to a final four of One Man Gang, Stan Hansen , Ron Simmons and Barry Windham. Two of the biggest men in the Crazy Gang versus two of the biggest men in the Brigade. After several minutes of vicious brawling, Hansen had Simmons set up for elimination when he went for a big shoulder tackle. But Simmons was able to grab him when he was hit, and both men went tumbling out of the ring together. It was now down to Gang and Windham. Windham did his best, but the huge Gang had such an overwhelming size advantage that it was hard to make a dent in him. Gang battered the Sweetwater native and got ready for the killing blow when he whipped Windham hard into the corner and came in for an Avalanche. But Barry dodged out of the way at the last second, and Gang crashed chest first into the corner. Barry took advantage of the momentum and hurled Gang out of the ring. Barry Windham was the winner! The tall Texan was triumphant and would go on to challenge for the Pacific Heavyweight Title at San Diego Battleground. The other members of the Brigade rushed out to the ring and congratulated him as the fans cheered him on.

    Nice update on Halloween Havoc... Also, you keep making things interesting... this week we got thrown a big Southeastern Tourny! Awsome interviews again this week. Slick and Leroy was great. The Fiesta Garden might have been the best ever. The back and forth over the stolen money was great. Glad you brought Platt and RPG back. They crack me up. What will come of Taylor & Zenk? Love Rocky Top!

    Biggest issue feels like length. Every new 50s match we get seems like 25 minutes plus. I know with the 60s French footage I’m generally watching two 30+ minute matches a week which involves some planning on my part.
  8. NYou can listen to a baseball game from the 1930s and it really doesn’t come off much different. Boxing kind of modernized in the 1920s. You watch Jack Johnson and he’s fighting a very different style. I actually watched Thesz/Longson earlier today. Thesz is signing autographs before the match. Thirty years later with the Von Erich boys kids are still trying for autographs before matches. I don’t think that was an exclusive rite of the Sportatorium but it’s a neat little bit of tradition. Even if it looked like the wrestler was capable of one autograph every two minutes.

    That's true. I think baseball and boxing retain a familiar feel even if you go back 80 years but everything else feels different. I think Japanese wrestling is easier to go back to or even 50s wrestling because the footage tends to be higher quality than a lot of the 70s and early 80s American stuff.

    I remember Bower most for being a tool when he was made a mod on the Smarks/TSM forums, but at least he did some good.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I don't know if you are being serious or not, but yes! I agree with this 100%. Its why I always complain about closed fist punches to the face.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Well, Impact didn't get to the bottom by making smart and competent business and creative decisions.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    I personally didn't mind the finish. Moose has recently made it clear he's willing to beat women to get what he wants after twatting alisha, Josh Alexander protects his family and moose beats him because if it and celebrates before Josh's family. I'm looking forward to the redemption. Also Johnny Swinger is the best thing in wrestling

    WOW! The Halloween Havoc tournament is for all the marbles! Winner walks out with the NWA World title! That's not it as a new Southeastern champ will be crowned on Monday. Chicky's Corporation is suspended. When they return, they'll have The American Dream waiting for them. LOL! I knew Slick and the Fullers would be gold together. I can't wait to see the suit Slick buys. Dundee is pumped up and ready for the tournament and Jimmy Golden. AWWWW Man, I really wanted to hear a song by Billy Joe. "Just a" swinging neckbreaker, nice touch. Bullet is a favorite to win the tournament unless the Rich's get in his face. It's not everyday somebody gets the better of Al in a verbal battle but Street accomplishes it. I'm sensing this isn't over. Not a bad week for Tyree. Desperados get the lashes and I'm sure the Nightmares loved every minute. Where was Bruno? Nice hype vignette of Furnas. These always did a great job of introducing new faces to the territory. Fun lottery surprise as Tom Zenk gets the TV title shot. The tag partners go the limit and follow with good sportsmanship.

    It seems awfully weird to me that the end game of the AEW/TNA relationship was have Kenny beat all of TNA's guys then drop the belt to AEW's Christian, who then drops it to TNA's X-Division champ who immediately drops it to Moose.

    Very classy statement from Watts. "Rock n Roll" Rock n Roll" Rock n Roll" RPM's getting some nuclear heat. Both Freebirds qualify for the battle royal. However, Jimmy Jam has a serious distraction on his hands. Jake takes a beating but DDT's his way to the battle royal. Ladd once again brings up valid points and gets his fine doubled for it. LOL, I never get tired of the Ladd/Watts saga. Adnan and the Superstars owe Fergie a percentage for that win. Gordy advances as chaos ensues! Crippler's in big trouble with Casey on his tail. As for Kendo and Tojo, it looks like Casey has some hard hitting friends backing him up. Whoever wins the stacked battle royal, defiantly earns their spot in the tournament.

    Yes, he was a huge fan and they even did the bit where he passed the Shotei on to him.

    I think this is something common to all sports, too. Even super pimped squads like Bill Russell's Celtics or the 1958 Brazilian Football Squad feel fairly different, like a relic, despite of how avant-garde they end up being.
  20. Mad Dog

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I think that's normal. I hesitate with older wrestling to recommend it. Mid 80s to now all feels similar but when you start pushing back into the 70s and beyond it can start to feel really foreign and not like the wrestling people know.

    I remember that too. He was threatening to feed a puppy to a boa constrictor live online. A guy named Jay Bower who wrote for Scott Keith’s website kicked up a huge uproar and ended up getting the police and the SPCA involved. In true Rob Black fashion, Black turned around and somehow managed to blame Bower for the whole thing, and threatened him, IIRC.

    The Moose stuff is what it is, but the team fka as the IIconics winning the titles on their first night in is some classic TNA "former midrange WWE talent gets positioned ahead of everyone in the company" move. AEW has shown the way to take those folks and rehab them in a way it doesn't come off as looking like also rans in WWE can walk in and beat your existing folks.

    Les Thatcher has a lot to cover & he does it well. That's quite the tournament he got together on such short notice. Though it will be 2 matches shorter than planned if Bass & Brooks don't take their lashes. On top of all that, he suspens all of Starr Corporation! Plus Dusty'll be waiting for them when they get back. The first proper interaction between between Slick & the Stud Stable is everything we could've hoped. I can't wait to see Slick's "Stud Stable esque" attire. I find it hilarious that Bruno is simultaneously encouraging Travis's country singer act while never ACTUALLY letting him sing. We get a refreshing change of pace on the Fiesta Garden as Alvin gets trolled out of his own show! The Desperados finally get what's coming to them. On the bright side they secure their spots in the tournament Monday. Nice promo for Furnas. T&Z collide for the TV Title! Thankfully it seems cooler heads prevai...this time.

    I distinctly remember when Rob Black was threatening to kill a dog live on the internet, and at first everyone was like "yeah ok whatever dude" until it looked like he was actually going to do it and there was a mad scramble among the community of the time to find out where he was and contact authorities. IIRC cops were able to locate him and his response was basically "it's just a prank, bro" before that was a meme.
  25. Strong Heavyweight Title is on the line. There may have been only 450 people with Covid restrictions (no chanting), but when Korakuen wants to give us some magic, there's nothing stopping it. The match has two parts. The first 12 minutes or so have some early mat work were Nomura finds ways to keep ahead of Sekimoto working the arm. That's until Daisuke decides to use his strength advantage and proceeds to have an awesome control section that consists on working Takuya's head and neck. The work is so good -Sekimoto is just a bully, putting him in headlocks, head scissors, sleepers, hitting him with the mat, etc- and Nomura's selling is so good, that Korakuen pops and claps to every single submissions attempt and rope break. The second part of the match (some 7 minutes) is Sekimoto's mistake. Instead of continuing his bully work, he goes for the kill and tries to strike the champ to death. That's were little by little, Young Gawd starts to find little windows. First, to get his wind back, and then to even things out. They transition this very well to the final minutes and sequences, were they go FULL EXCESS WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY DOING level of brutality. The elbows are the stiffest I've ever seen Daisuke throw, and Nomura shows he learned from his match from MiSu to never hold back again. The headbutts are DISGUSTING, holy fuck, the one Takuya lands at the ends busted him up worst than when Sekimoto opened him up first and the slaps....by gawd the slaps I'm not a fan of excess on my wrestling but If they are gonna give me some, THIS is how I want it. Great fucking match.

    Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling (v3)

    Savanah superkicks his way to another win. Spivey's powerbomb is devastating. Hart's and Brutha's are at a stalemate. Nobody gets up from Kamala's Air Africa and it takes a lot to put Jaggers down. The mist strikes again. Thanks to Foley's helmet, the Commonwealth pull out a big win over the Rockers. Oh man, I had a bad feeling about this. Sullivan comes prepared as a new goon helps him win the TV title. I hope MACW television is ready for this reign of terror. The fans get their money's worth with a classic Tully/Harley 45 minute draw.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    XPW really was the scuzziest of the scuzziest in pro-wrestling, and that covers a lot of ground - an ECW rip-off that substituted any attempt at storytelling for increased/mindless violence and a sprinkling of porn stars. I guess given the owner and his outlook when it came to his primary career, it was never going to be anything but the product it turned out like - I'm pretty sure there was a whole series of their TV show that had no wrestling whatsoever and only skits - but there was that brief period, which wasn't touched on in the episode where it was booked by Shane Douglas (who in standard wrestling booker style made himself the champion) and was something more resembling an actual wrestling company. I understand why it wasn't covered, given time, but it would've been interesting to get something on that period where they moved to the East Coast and we had the Philly wrestling wars when they got exclusivity on the ECW Arena. From the interviews with the people involved, you could sense they were trying to get across that ECW vibe of being 'a family' all working for a cause, but from the outside it just seemed like it was a place that took all the worst elements from two seedy industries and created a perverted mess.
