    Invader I

    That Al Perez match is in my book, it really is incredible. It is such a career outlier for Perez, he is this match which is in the upper echelon of all wrestling, and then everything else is right in the middle. Like what is the second best Perez match? Can anyone even name it?

    It's actually pretty bad. We reviewed it on SC http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2021/03/new-footage-friday-rock-and-rolls-mx.html

    Jerry "The King" Lawler

    I think it would be hard to make a list of 100 wrestlers who aren’t shitty people. It’s wrestling. A list of wrestling’s greatest pals would be pretty uninteresting and pointless

    Jerry "The King" Lawler

    I thought the entire point of this was ringwork

    Jerry "The King" Lawler

    Why would Lawler have a tough time? Honestly the crossfitting of pro-wrestling over the last 5 years makes me appreciate Lawler more not less.

    That Bentley match is really good, we reviewed it here https://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/12/slim-j-is-brain-dead-like-jim-brady.html

    Slim J

    He is a big mover for me, now we have seen the 2006 Anarchy War Games match which is one of the great babyface War Games performance ever, plus the YARD CALL and Dog Collar matches with Corey Hollis, he comes off like one of the great brawlers of the 2000s, along with the Fred Yehi series which showed off his technical wrestling, and I can't imagine him not making my list.

    Buzz Sawyer

    He has to be one of the most guys helped by more footage showing up. We got Last Battle of Atlanta, a great JYD match, Babyface Buzz vs. DiBiase, Buzz and Bret versus the Roadies. Feels like a guy who we always knew was awesome, and we got the footage to back it up.

    Gilbert Cesca

    I don't think the French footage explosion has helped Cesca particularly, with more of a context, he seems like more of solid hand, then a transcendent standout. Weirdly we haven't come across very many new Cesca matches, but now that we see more of other guys he doesn't stand out as much. I might find a place for him on the list, but he won't be the top rated Catcheur.

    Guys lets be nicer to Jerry, we don't want to be the subject of his Substack essay on cancel culture in pro-wrestling fandom. I can see him pitching it to Bari Weiss as we speak.

    If I do this, I am going to have 6-10 French Catch guys in the mix, feels like people should watch this stuff because we have plenty of newly discovered great wrestlers who are absolutely peers to guys like Flair, Kobashi, Santo etc

    What do you guys think the floor for available matches is? We have guys in the French footage who seem clearly to be among the best wrestlers ever, but we only have two or three matches. Feels like a list without Tony Oliver or Modesto Aledo doesn't make sense, but can we judge someone on so little footage?

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I almost got into multiple fist fights with Hulk Hogan fans at that show.

    Good matches "ruined" by their endings

    It's only one match but Fujiwara vs. Kawada was terrible and both of those guys were all time greats

    I mean Muraco just sucked, he was a cool character, but I still haven't seen a great performance in the ring.
