    Jimmy Valiant. I just really don't like Jimmy Valiant. He is the only wrestler in my current 1986 project that genuinely irritates me when he comes out, and is around for long enough to be a factor on my enjoyment of a show. He is too focal a point of the feuds during that era to be avoided, and nothing he does entertains me.

    Thanks for the kind words. To be honest, I'm not overly fussed by the numbers of people who come and read this - I'm just enjoying covering the various things from what is turning out to be a pretty interesting year in the territories.

    http://tvtimelimitremaining.co.uk/a-wrestling-year-26-02-1986-04-03-1986-part-3/ NWA, with Ron Garvin vs Arn Anderson and lots of gifs of Bobby Eaton jumping off of the top rope to kill jobbers.
  9. A question I've been mulling over in my head recently - a lot has always been made of Flair's schedule as NWA champion, and his ability to make people appear to be viable contenders no matter who they were. I was wondering in general how many of his time limit draws actually made it to tape, considering I've never seen any at all, and I'm assuming the broadway finish was one that got used more than once.

    Not related to the project, but here is an article where I began to chart who the 'real' world champion is. https://kayfabetoday.wordpress.com/2016/02/26/tracking-the-real-world-champion-part-one/ Similar in vein to the Unofficial World Cup Champions, I'm looking at who would be champion if every match from when Chris Jericho won the Undisputed Title in 2001 was a title match, and titles could change hand on DQ/Countout.

    Johnny Storm

    I guess I appreciate his longevity. Never been a huge fan though, but the fact that he has existed beyond the shit show that was early 00s UK Indy wrestling into the resurgent modern scene is worth noting.

    http://tvtimelimitremaining.co.uk/a-wrestling-year-12-02-1986-18-02-1986-part-1/ I'm all giffing stuff up now (fun times). Three this time! As for matches, JYD fights Terry Funk in WWF, whilst Rick Casey and Dirty Rhodes are in the main event in Memphis.

    He was always awful, wasn't he? Or am I missing something?

    Jimmy Valiant

    Yeah, and it gets flagged up as something incongruous with the persona they were trying to sell him as having.

    Jimmy Valiant

    Not what I care for at all. However, Valiant just makes me cringe. I still also want someone to perhaps excuse his heel move set - it feels odd to see him jabbing thumbs into throats and using back rakes.
  24. I watched this recently: The best match of the evening sees Hulk Hogan defend his title against Terry Funk. We see footage of Funk branding Hogan at a show in Denver, and it is the unpredicatable nature of Funk that makes this watchable, if not more than passable in the ring. Junkyard Dog is down at ringside to help Hogan deal with Jimmy Hart, but he needs very little help in the early going, absolutely blitzing through Funk in several different spots, Funk seemingly spending more time flying over/through the ropes than in the ring. Funk’s stooging is entertaining, and he throws a chair into the ring out of frustration, only for Hogan to sit on it and ask Funk to bring it on. It is only after Hart grabs Hogan’s leg that Funk is able to get a wrist tape assisted choke on Hogan, dropping him with a piledriver for good measure. Having been pre-conditioned to what I expect in a Hogan match, I expected the big kick out now, but Hogan squeaked out at two. Funk punches Hogan whilst they are both on the floor, but as Hogan gets to his feet, this is where we see the hulk up. Hogan’s big boot sends Funk to the outside, where he is suplexed in. Hart is able to nail Hogan with the branding iron in all the confusion, only for Hogan to get his foot on the rope. One clothesline later, Hogan has retained his belt – odd during this day and age to see Hogan win without the legdrop. An oddly structured and delivered match, but entertaining because of it.

    Recording match information

    What do you do? This is a two fold question: 1) How do you go about recording responses to wrestling as you watch? 2) What do you do afterwards to record your wrestling watching? This is asked primarily due to the vast number of podcasts/blogs people run, but also as I've heard of a few of you recording matches on spreadsheets. This is more for curiosity than anything.
