    Sgt Slaughter Deep Dive

    Sgt Slaughter & Don Kernodle vs Dizzy Hogan & Mike Davis (JCP - 2/2/83) Short action packed TV tag. Totally fine while you're watching but forgettable. Sgt Slaughter vs Chief Jay Strongbow (WWF - 5/28/83) Super basic match. Slaughter stooges and bumps around for Strongbow's basic offense. Forgettable. Sgt Slaughter vs Dick Tessier (WWF - 9/24/83) Nothing match. Slaughter beats him in like 30 seconds. Sgt Slaughter vs Tony Atlas (WWF - 11/23/83) Outside of a long chinlocky section in the middle of the match, this is pretty good. Slow paced match overall but they do a good job building to a few big moments that are well executed. Crowd is with them the whole time and when Atlas finally hits his big press slam on Slaugher, they're going crazy. Sgt Slaughter vs Ivan Putski (WWF - 10/17/83) I really liked this match a lot. Slaughter is a perfect opponent for Putski. Putski is CRAZY over but limited offensively in what he can do. Sarge is a master at working with opponents like this. He's got a bunch of good schtick he can use and his bumping and selling is in the greatest of all time conversation. Slaughter has started to do some fun schtick where he flexes "too hard" and hurts his pec or his bicep. Its funny stuff and works to particularly great effect when opposite someone like Putski. Stalling to start from Sarge as he's hesitant to get too close to this freak Putski. They do a great job of putting over Putski's great strength. He gets Slaughter in a side headlock and Sarge responds by flailing around because Putski is so strong. They really milk this side headlock but Putski is so ripped & Slaughter is reacting to it so well that the crowd is going crazy watching it. Its really simple by super smart work. Slaugher finally gets him off with an irish whip but Putski comes back with a shoulder block and Sarge takes his huge Rock taking a Stunner bump. Sarge is so good at creating killer offense for people like this. Its just a shoulder block, but in this setting it works as highspot. Putski's time on top is all basic stuff like that that Sarge looks like a millon bucks with his great bumping and selling. He does this again later when he takes one his patented bumps into the ring post off a simple irish whip. Putski takes the vast majority of the match but Sarge's selling on his attempted comebacks is something else. Check him out after his atomic drop as he attempts to get to his feet to follow up. Really great stuff. This is a basic super simple match but Sarge's brilliance still shines through. Sgt Slaughter vs Blackjack Mulligan (Maple Leaf Wrestling - 10/30/83) This is a really fun double juice brawl. They just beat the shit out of each other. It looks like Mulligan is about to win but Kernodle runs in to but it all up. Really fun stuff.

  9. I thought it was really stupid and dorky and I hate Omega's "genius" character work where he pretends he can't cut promos and is really stupid who needs Callis to hold his hand so you won't get any argument from me. He does it every week despite no one thinking it's funny or clever apart from Dave Meltzer.

    El Bracero

    Rahs post plus his initial 2016 nomination consisting off nothing but "look in the NWA Classics thread for reviews" makes this possibly the funniest nomination in the whole project.
  12. @MoS my point is its a bad look. Why have your 3 top heels do something on live TV that they cannot do? It makes them look like nerds, like they have no hand eye coordination or athletic skills. Don't open up your wrestling show by exposing what your top 3 guys can't do- in this case, catch throw and dribble a ball better than a 9 year old girl.
  13. I think they could probably dial it back for a bit considering you had a Texas Death Match and then this back to back. It certainly worked as a one-off spectacle though. Saying that, I can't imagine Cody not wanting to bleed next week considering he'll probably be in white tights.
  14. On one hand I get it since AEW is still at the stage where they can't risk losing any money streams (pretty sure they still get an ad split unless that changed in their new deal), but on the other hand the company that clearly wants to be seen as the spiritual successor to JCP and all the wild bloody brawls that took place there can't get too wrapped up in "won't someone think of the children" thinking. That only leads to sanitized WWE style PG rasslin; and the whole point of AEW existing was to provide an alternative to that.

    Greek catch

    I don't know that I would classify anything here as particularly great in the traditional sense. It's been a few years since I've watched these so my recollection isn't great and I think I never got around to watching all of the footage above in full, but personally I'm partial to the Souglakos comp. I wouldn't say these are the best matches as the matches are short and the quality of the work is up for debate, but it's a fascinating look at Greek catch's final headline star and perhaps best remembered star (largely due to him having some fame outside of wrestling too with various movie roles, TV appearances, and even a rap album). The crowd is really into Souglakos in some of the bouts and Pefanis does a great blade job in one of them so those were my main two takeways from the comp. At least from what I recall. I'd also throw the Tromaras match highlights in there as well just for comparison's sake as Tromaras was the other top Greek name back then. Sidenote about Souglakos. He actually headlined the first (and only) show by an American company in Greece. New York's NWF had a show there in 1991 with Abdullah the Butcher, Jules Strongbow, Wendi Richter and others. Souglakos was the only Greek on the card and took on The Russian Assassin (Johnny Grunge, supposedly) in the main event. That was the last big wrestling crowd in Greece - about 5,500 (or 15,000 according to Souglakos in interviews ). I can't remember off the top of my head, but I think that show may have aired on TV in Greece. It was definitely taped as that match was featured in the other Souglakos VHS comp that was released in the early 1990s, but sadly that one hasn't popped up on YouTube. And one final fun fact about Souglakos. Back in 1989 he got a bunch of publicity in Greece for challenging Mike Tyson to a boxing fight. He was claiming Tyson is afraid of him... If not the Souglakos comp I say go for the Siotis match. He's got a rep as being one of the better Greek workers. After that it's a toss-up. The Souglakos vs. Hristofilopoulos match is full, but I don't recall it being any good. The Bouranis/Tsikrikas tag, plus the singles and tag match with unidentified wrestlers may be better, but neither one of those is full. They're good length, just not full.
  18. Jericho needed a break IMO before all big influx of talent, and I say that as one of the bigger Jerichoholics on this board Meltzer thought the Gage match was super risky due to the possibility of losing a mainstream sponsor like State Farm. Says even though they cleared it with TNT, that AEW has enemies who could use this to go after them and their sponsors. Can't say I disagree tbh. I haven't watched it yet, but it does sound like a lot of ultraviolence for television where presumably some kids are watching Dave also thinks Tanahashi will be working Mox at the AEW PPV

    Greek catch

    I was skipping around that first video just to see what things looked like and I got excited when I saw this hahahah! Thanks for sharing. This is really cool info. Wild that this stuff has been on youtube for a decade. Cant help but wonder what else is out there that we could easily find on youtube right now but don't know about because we don't know what names to search and which languages.
  20. I’m amazed they went full Gage on national TV and even more amazed that a lot of the gruesome shit really got over. Not too keen on Page being beat since nobody else on the roster gets that reaction and the story is there but I guess the Danielson match is happening since it seems like Punk is going with Darby. Unless they’ve beat Page to go with Omega/Christian which, I cannot imagine even if they were hinting it
  21. New pod dropped, I talk with Fanfyte and Segunda Caida writer JR Goldberg about Danny Havok vs. Sami Callihan in the Cage of Death from CZW https://redcircle.com/shows/way-of-the-blade

    Greek catch

    Ok we clearly need to review some of this for New Footage Friday on Segunda Caida, what is the best match of this bunch (closest to complete as well)
  23. In this episode of Wrestling War Zone: The Monday Night Wars, JT Rozzero & Chad Campbell dive into the Monday Night Wars from 8/12/96! They catch up on their personal lives for a few minutes and then get into Konnan turning heel, another Savage/Flair match, a big attack by the NWO, more Nick Patrick shenanigans, the first Outsiders match on Nitro, Raw's antiquated taping schedule, the return of Crush, Ahmed Johnson's injury, an insane Bob Backlund appearance, the final build to SummerSlam and much more. So sit back, settle in and join JT and Chad as they work their way through the one and only Monday Night Wrestling War era! https://northsouthconnection.podbean.com/e/wrestling-war-zone-the-monday-night-wars-71-81296/

    ONE Championship is undergoing a big push at the US Market, are trying to sign Stipe, and just had their ruleset approved in Colorado https://combatsportslaw.com/2021/07/22/one-championship-and-knees-to-grounded-opponents-coming-to-colorado/ Quite clear that they don't test in the same way as USADA rules if you take a close look at the Asian cards So that would be my bet

    AEW Dynamite - July 28, 2021 - Fight for the Fallen

    Those matches don't need the title, but the title needs them. Omega against Punk or Bryan will completely overshadow any Page title defense unless it's against a big-name outsider like Tanahashi. It's never a good idea for the world champion to look like a secondary player. There's a reason All Japan and NOAH almost always had guys lose their first match back after an injury layoff. It makes sense that they would need to work off the ring rust before they can hang with the top guys, and it sets the table for them to get their revenge once they're back in ring shape. If Omega defends against Punk and Bryan, it'll be an even bigger rub when Page knocks him off. And they can get their wins back after Omega drops the belt.

    WWE TV 07/26 - 08/01 The Olympic Games are a wonderful event

    Meltzer said on the Board that Lesnar and AEW have never had serious talks, so make of that what you will. I'd pop if he went back to New Japan and laid Okada out with the Verdict.
  27. Wonder where he's going?
