  1. After watching a lot of those clips I have to say he had his good points. He definitely went out of his way to bump for some guys. Sometimes comedically over-the-top, but he was putting the effort in. Also when he was having stiff brawls with Finlay or Meng I could see some potential in him as a guy who came in for shots in a Southern territory in the 80s. Obviously he'd have needed to be more polished, but he had the intensity and the willingness to put his body on the line. I guess we don't really take into account that most of the wrestling we see on TV is done by guys with a TON of experience in the ring in front of fans. When you see a guy like Mongo learning as he goes and obviously struggling to keep up at points it drives that home. If he'd have come in after 5 years in the business I really think we'd be having a different conversation. As it is, I think all of us enjoy some of the more "wrestlecrap" moments now and again.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    You know what, now that I go back over some of it the Andy Diggle run ended really well on Hellblazer. That seemed like it should have been the ending for the character as a whole to me, as much as I love Constantine. The Books of Magic and Trenchcoat Brigade are must-reads if you like Constantine.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Hellblazer is great, but I thought it went downhill after Jamie Delano and Garth Ennis. I thought the Delano arc was the best, with a lot more "see how cool Constantine is" stuff thrown in by later authors. Admittedly over some great story arcs, but the first run was the most consistent.
  4. I wanted more out of this. So few times this kind of talent has been in the ring together and it just...fizzled.
  5. I LOVED this. Flair is sounding more and more like the old Flair and it is great.
  6. Nice beatdown by some guys who look like they've done it a few times before. SMW just keeps getting better and better.
  7. Cornette throwing the tantrum was incredible. Bob and Corny really work well together and i am looking forward to watching them squabble.
  8. I liked Morton's promo a lot. He was so much more than the ultimate FIP that he is remembered for. Not a guy who would carry your promotion, but definitely somebody you would want around. I LOVED Eddie's promo. He has been on fire of late.
  9. I loved using the "cock-a-roach" line. And the way he delivered the "kick your face in the sand!" Great stuff.
  10. Wembley sold out in 10 hours? That's pretty damn impressive if true.
  11. Loved the promo. I am in agreement with Loss that Bossman was too good for the way he was treated. Was it because he wasn't a bit-time superstar, just a mid-level guy who could make anything work for guys on the way up? I'd figure that was a valuable thing to have.
  12. Not great wrestling. But that crowd...wow.

    [1992-07-17-CMLL] Lizmark vs El Satanico

    It looked like the ref was saying that Lizmark's arm was keeping Satanico's shoulders off the mat. Too bad the slow mo replay showed him counting Lizmark out when his shoulder was up well before the ref's hand hit. Satanico is amazing and I liked this match a lot. I really dug the focus on Satanico's back as a way to stay ahead by Lizmark.
  14. Not great match, but three things stood out positively for me. Hansen has a brutal running crossbody. They did make Ace look smart in not eating the Hansen lariat. If you are in front of it you are in the danger zone and him knowing that is a positive. And that look Hansen got on his face after the first lariat missed was amazing.
