    Greatest year ever by a wrestler

    Well put. 100% agree. Being a huge Bret fan, that was such a fun time. I ordered all the main ppvs, watched Raw every week and was also live for Canadian Stampede. Total investment. So much so, I remember being very pissed off that (of all things) Bret didnt finally win PWI wrestler of the year. I dont think he even placed! And then of course it all came crashing down in Montreal and my fandom has never been that intense for one wrestler and one promotion ever again. Great, great year

    PWO Appreciation Thread

    @JKWebb I haven't plugged this here, or really anywhere other than a couple tweets, but if you enjoyed that Savage pod from years ago (it was actually with Grimmas not Parv), and you have a copy of the Savage Unreleased dvd, you may be interested in me droning on as I watch all the matches. New ep every couple days https://m.soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/sets/the-greatness-of-randy-savage

    PWO Appreciation Thread

    Thanks for sharing that brother. Your contributions to this board over the years detailing the history of Puerto Rican wrestling have been super valuable and much appreciated

    Wrestling before or after 1996?

    Nothing has changed for me, still overwhelmingly pre-1996 That said, I'm much more into modern stuff than I was in 2014. I'm a big fan of NWA, AEW, check out New Japan big matches from time to time, and was a weekly viewer of NXT from 2015 until around the start of the Wednesday War when I finally burned out on the epic match main event scene. My heart is still with the old stuff though

    WWE TV 3/23-3/29 Who Cares? Edition

    It's funny, I've been watching WCCW from Feb 84 this past week and Fritz aired a show hyping a David vs Flair match eight days after David had died. That's the bar for extreme promoter tastelessness Vince needs to clear in the next 10 days or so in case anyone was wondering

    PWO Appreciation Thread

    Marc, that post brightened my day and made me smile remembering some of the names that used to post here a lot and some of the crazy debates (often started by jvk) that once took place on a seemingly daily basis. While not what it once was for various reasons, this place is great and, similar to what Matt D wrote, is where my fandom hit another level. Many "real life" friendships emerged from here and PWO provided the springboard for one of my main passions in life, podcasting. Great memories. Thanks man

    WrestleMania 36

    Yeah, I was thinking you still need to have probably more than 50 people, counting the wrestlers and all the production staff, to put on the show. So shouldn't that technically not be allowed? Plus, do we really want to see Mania this way, with no audience? It's been bad enough the last several years in packed football stadiums

    WrestleMania 36

    I think this is Vince just buying a little more time before having to announce "Well, I tried to put smiles on people's faces, but the God damn state of Florida wont let me", and being forced to cancel/postpone

    UFC finally, with gritted teeth, threw in the towel. That basically leaves Vince and Mania the last holdout

    My wife and I couldn't of timed the sale of our condo in the city and move to her family farm two months ago any better. We also spent a month in Europe (during which time we were on a cruise and visited Spain, France and Italy) but got back Feb 26 and just missed the craziness. I've been self isolating since March 1, but that's because I have no job to go to nor the means to get into town on my own. I previously worked in grocery stores in Vancouver for eight years, so that's another thing I've luckily missed out on. I really feel for those having to work there, especially those in large cities who rely on public transit, as I did. It's going to be a long few months. Who knows how long, really

    Blood & Guts

    I'm lucky to know half dozen or so equally hardcore fans in the Vancouver area, and we've gotten together for every AEW ppv so far, splitting the costs. It's great, like the 90s all over again. If I didnt have that outlet I definitely wouldnt be ordering $50 AEW shows alone
