    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I got in and read Barber's XPW book. It's pretty good. Worth the 10 or so bucks it costs.
  2. The book is ordered and should be here the end of the week. Now I gotta talk my girl into letting me get it now instead of "Hey your birthday is next month. You have to wait until then to get it."
  3. Getting a copy of the book for my birthday next month. Would love to have that file with links to all the matches.

    The aging of wrestling fans

    Talk to anyone that owns a comic shop, what keeps them open and making money is MtG and currently those ugly ass Funko Pops. The comic shop in town has very few people coming in to buy comics. The ones that do come to buy comics are 30 or older.

    The aging of wrestling fans

    Going by the crowds I see at the 20 or so indie shows I goto each year. The crowds are 1/3rd 30 to 50 years old 1/3rd kids under 15 1/3rd teens/young adults 17 to 25 And the last group is there cause there is nothing else to do in the tiny rural southern towns the shows are held in.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    The author of that book was interviewed on a recent episode of King of Wrestling Podcast.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Sucks she had to retire. But I get that she has to do what is best for her mentally and emotionally.
  10. I hope they use whatever footage was filmed and add some to it to make a film to wrap up the show. Saw that someone had posted pictures of Taya in season 4. It sucks that great shows get cancelled and tripe like SVU and Friends get to run for ever. Classic shows like Freaks and Geeks can't even get 1 season but it seems like all those reality crap shows run for 10 years.

    RIP "Bullet" Bob Armstrong

    That's the David Friedman/Fred Olen Ray made documentary. Known as Southern Discomfort or Alabama Outlaws or The Iron Sheik The Main Event. Under the Alabama Outlaws title it is streaming on Amazon Prime.

    The parts of the US that SMW was running were at least 5 years behind the times. Like where I live currently. They still think it is 1988.

    NWA Powerrr

    Known Tim since 2013 and he is uber nice. So Happy that he is getting a chance to be known outside the TX/LA/AR/MS circuit he has worked for decades.

    NWA Powerrr

    I ordered him one right after making that post.

    NWA Powerrr

    Exactly. My father is 75 and has never learned how to work a DVD player or computer. But each week he is watching MLW,NWA Powerrr,CWFH and Reality of Wrestling on youtube. Cause all he has to do is goto channel # something on Dish network and he has access to youtube. Dish and I bet DirecTV connect to youtube. And most modern TVs have a youtube app. So more and more older folks,hell I am 45,are accessing Youtube. Hell the other day I got a call from my dad. He was all excited cause he found Smoky Mountain Wrestling on Youtube.Tempted to get him a Roku Streaming stick for Xmas and hook him up with the FITE app and a few other free apps. What I really love the most about NWA Powerrr is now a nationwide audience is getting to see how good Tim Storm and Ricky Starks are. Been following both guys since about 2012. Tim cause he worked a lot for NWA Bayou Indie Wrestling,now just Bayou Indie Wrestling. And Ricky was working for Powerslam Productions,former WWE Ref Wes Adams Mid Mississippi based fed,and Wildkat Sports out of NOLA. First time I saw Ricky I was saying if given a chance he could be huge. Dude just has IT. He has this odd charisma. And some of the best facials in wrestling. Tim Storm was great as the older vet that would face anyone. Him and John Saxon had a great taped fist match in the tiny town I live in for the NWA North American title.

    Dory Funk Jr on the Amarillo schedule - help needed

    Always heard the Mobile/Pensacola territory had the easiest trips. You were home pretty much every night and I think the longest trip was once a week going to Dothan.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    I am still loving MLW Fusion each week. And just found out my buddy Andy Dalton teamed with the Spirit Squad on an upcoming episode.
  18. In 85 with just a rooftop antenna and a set of rabbit ears hooked to the tv in my bedroom I got. WCCW,Florida,Memphis,Mid South,3 WWF syndicated shows,WCW Worldwide(I think it was Worldwide),Continental,GLOW and GCCW By late 87 all I got was WWF Wrestling Challenge and Continental.
  19. Does the state that show was run in have a commission? I know in MS and AL there is one and you gotta take a blood test at least once a year. In AL every show has to have a doctor at the show. And the wrestlers gotta pass a physical before they can wrestle.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    While I enjoyed Darkside,The Wrestlers is so much better. My mother,who has never cared for wrestling,is hooked on The Wrestlers. Been trying to find time to watch each new episode with her every week.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Mike still has the title. Defends it often on shows in AL.
  22. Brickhouse is still alive. Various MS wrestlers have posted pics taken yesterday. Seems Brickhoyse's mom jumped the gun reporting his death.

    Why It Ended with Robbie E

    I have only skipped one episode so far,the Russo one. But it works great as something to listen to while doing homework,grabbing groceries or doing dishes. I
  24. Watched Season 1 in one marathon viewing the day after it came out. Season 2 got watched all at once yesterday. No spoilers but yea Season 2 was even better than the first one. The cameos were great and "I want to see people dressed like pink flamingos" had me dying. Best episode is the one that mostly focused on Awesome Kong.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    Since I happen to get BeIN Sports,SD and HD,on DISH I DVR it each week. But oddly the 1080 version that ends up on Youtube looks better than the HD feed I get. FUn show. They got an interesting roster and a few people I have been wanting to see on TV. Would be nice if they keep on working in various deep south indie names. Never thought years ago when I was watching Fred Yehi in the Great Southern 8 at a Pro Wrestling EGO show,that he would end up on a nationwide show.
