    RIP Rene Goulet

    It seems like his family kept it private. I don't think WWE even knew. Or if they did, they kept it private by request of the family.

    RIP Rene Goulet

    The JTTS/agent run when he was in his 50s really colors the perception of someone who had a legit career otherwise. I hope there’s a good obit forthcoming.

    2019 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame

    I listened to the radio show, Dave brought up Sgt. Slaughter and that his AWA run keeps him out of the hall of fame. This was in the context of judging candidates while they're fresh rather than years after the fact. The thought occurred to me, if the Observer Hall of Fame had been around in the 1980s, Sgt. Slaughter would've been eligible in 1984. How many votes would he have gotten straight after the Iron Sheik feud when he was probably at his pure peak career-wise.

    2019 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame

    Not counting whoever gets in this year, there are 39 inductees who were born in the 1960s, eight from the 1970s and two from the 1980s. Either the quality of wrestling has fallen completely down the toilet in the last twenty years (possible), or we're using the wrong standards to judge Hall of Fame candidates.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    My girl is five and taking a vague interest in what I'm watching and wants to go to a show. I'll give this a shot.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    I really liked Sisterhood of the Squared Circle as well. Really invaluable source for US womens' wrestling. They do cover Joshi but not as extensively.

    AEW Dynamite Week 9 - 27 Nov 2019

    She made an appearance for a local Indy last week. I couldn’t go and I fear I’ll regret that for a long time.

    Ditto. And I thought for a moment someone was going to choke Roberts with his own tie.
  9. Josh Alexander inventing the deadly DOUBLE axhandle was a highlight.
  10. Anyone checking out the IPWF show? It’s completely ridiculous but I can’t hate on wrestlers having fun once in awhile.

    WWE Survivor Series 2019 - Board Breaking Subtitles

    It was a tag match with winning faces against winning heels. Only done once, in 1990. I would've dug Andre vs. The Jumping Bomb Angels, the Young Stallions, the Killer Bees, Ricky Steamboat, Jake Roberts and Randy Savage in 1987.

    Guys can’t sell three seconds to get pinned but they can sell five minutes while others take turns getting moves in.

  15. Damn. I'd rather work on mousetraps than legos.
