These playlists are an attempt to honor the members of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame by curating the available footage for each HOF entrant that has five or more filmed matches available.
I think one of my reasons for wanting to do this is to demonstrate that there is far more wrestling on film from this era than some people may think. There’s always a dumbfounded contingency on Twitter when Dave Meltzer mentions Jim Londos (or Rikidozan or El Santo, for that matter), and even those who know some about him may not realize that we have a full two hours of footage from his career that includes clips of over 40 matches. While it doesn’t do his stardom justice by any means, it’s not like we have no sense of what his matches were like either.
Each volume is 2 - 2 ½ hours and all matches are listed in chronological order.
