    WWE Network... It's Here

    There are "lost" Observers from the 80s? I was unaware of that

    The NHL also has little to no appeal to a significant proportion of the US population. At least that's what we're told here in the Great White North
  3. I know bubba really loves the Big Dog, but I don't know how some of you guys still hang in there every week. Nothing I read seems particularly interesting and the thought of six hours of WWE TV every week sounds like a stage of hell, as much fun as watching every game for a baseball team with a ton of money but that is 50 games out of first place and getting blown out almost every night

    WWE Network... It's Here

    The original Japanese UWF was formed in early 84 based around Satoru Sayama (Tiger Mask) and included Maeda. From Wikipedia: "In early 1984, UWF President Hisashi Shinma brokered a deal with the World Wrestling Federation which resulted in a UWF/WWF working relationship. Through this working relationship, one of UWF's top stars Akira Maeda toured the United States with the WWF[1] and even won the promotion's International Heavyweight Championship.[2] The relationship ended on July 23, 1984 after President Shinma jumped from UWF to All Japan Pro Wrestling."

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Definitely Snuka vs Valentine and the six man with Bobo Brazil

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    A couple of previously unaired in full MSG cards from 1984 dropped on Peacock today (3/25 and 5/21). I dont have the Network anymore but I'm under the impression a few matches that never aired are included? Specifically, Backlund vs Valentine from 3/25/84? If so, I'm curious if it's a banger like many of their other matches over the years

    For all the fans out there, just saw an announcement for a new Astro City one shot coming out in March

    AEW Dynamite - October 6, 2021

    Dodgers vs Giants should do big numbers but the other first round matchups aren't very interesting

    Hopefully this is just part of the eventual heel turn (his weeks old baby is going to be traumatized by daddy playing heel on TV?) and not a sincere statement. I really wish modern wrestlers wouldn't discuss all the backstage stuff publicly as it's happening, but I know that's an old man opinion

    Oh, and Bruno's MSG matches with Patera in 77 are great too

    Cool, I'm interested to hear your thoughts about the 70s stuff

    If you can get the 3 match Arion series from MSG I would start there. 2/17, 3/17 and 4/14/1975 Vs Waldo Von Erich, 6/16/75 Vs Superstar Graham from 1/12/76 and 8/1/77 Vs Larry Z, 2 each from MSG and Philly, March and April 1980 (check out as much of this feud as possible, including promos, if you can) Vs Piper, Boston cage, 2/8/86 W.Santana vs Savage/Adonis, MSG cage, 7/12/86 I think I have all the dates right

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I think Greg was even originally billed as Johnny's brother when he did take the Valentine name in order not to make his father seem too old

    Bruno throwing dropkicks!

    Yes, was coming here to post this. 3 videos of 60s MLG have been posted. The first two are of the 62 footage, about 35 mins (alas, just 1:12 of Bruno vs Buddy). There is also a video of 1964 MLG, featuring apparently the Toronto debut of the Sheik. So that's historically significant if nothing else
