  2. I'm not a big fan of battle royals but I enjoyed seeing Andre tower over everyone else. I also thought the exchanges between Wahoo and Hernandez were nice and heated. I'm not that familiar with Gino and i'm looking forward to seeing more of him.

    Jerry Lawler

    Jerry Lawler was a major revelation for me going through the Memphis set. Growing up I was always a fan of wrestlers who did lots of 'moves', but Lawler completely captivated me with his more minimalist approach. On every match on the set he held my attention from beginning to end. His punches are without a doubt the best i've ever seen and as beautiful to watch as any flip or dive. He had such great timing and an incredible connection with the Memphis fans. I need to see more of the King!
  5. This was brilliantly done. Obviously I knew the stunner was coming but the way it was done took me completely by surprise and made me laugh at loud. A fantastic moment!

    [1997-07-21-WWF-Raw] Interview: Shawn Michaels

    This is a tremendous. I've been working my way through the 97 Raw's and PPV's on the network and pretty much hated every babyface interview Shawn has given. He's been totally upstaged by Bret Hart and Steve Austin on the mic. He tries to be cool and funny but instead comes across like a gurning imbecile. As a face it just doesn't work. But here, heeling it up in Canada, everything clicks into place. Instead of trying to funny and failing pathetically, he actually is funny. His little jig around the ring while twirling the tiny Canadian flags had me rolling. I'm really looking forward to seeing this heel turn develop.

    Best Individual Performance in a Match

    One of the all time great performances on commentary. Heenan added so much to that match.

    What are you watching?

    I've recently been watching 70's Jumbo Tsuruta. I've seen the stuff on the 80s sets and a lot of his 90s work, but was largely unfamiliar with the 70s matches matches. I've watched about 40 of them recently and enjoyed the experience tremendously. Not every match is great of course but many of them are. Even when they've fallen short Jumbo is always very watchable in them I think it's amazing that he was basically a top guy from the start working with the Funks and Briscos and looking like he really belonged in there with them. My plan was to move into the 80s and work through his career chronologically as much as I can, but i've just found about 40 more matches from the 70s so i'll be making my way through those first.

    Ranking the Holy Trilogy

    I have a special place in my heart for the WrestleWar bout because it was the first Ric Flair match I ever saw and i'd watched it quite a few times before I got to see the other two so I know it really well. I also love the post match angle with Funk. One Classic feud ends and Flair goes straight into another one. I loved the Clash match though and that seems to get better over time. I was always a bit less keen on the first match but I watched it again recently and thought it was amazing. I'd go 1) Clash 2) WW 3) Chi-town

  14. I enjoyed this match a lot. Some great punches from Dibiase in this, and a very good sell job from Jake.
  15. I thought this match was absolutely fantastic. I hated Cena for such a long time but i've turned around on him a bit in recent months since being very impressed with his Punk and Bryan bouts. I thought his performance was superb here. His facial expressions after the big AJ kick out was great. I really bought in to his disbelief. I loved him playing the heel for a bit earlier on in the match and it made me realise i'd love to see him do it full time. I know a heel turn will never happen but I think he would be great at it. Not just from a character stand point but in the ring too.
