    Sgt. Slaughter

    The 2003 Orton match is a pretty good 2 minute sprint, the 2007 one doesn't have much going for it aside from Sarge nearly spiking the RKO.

    Sgt. Slaughter

    Was there anything vaguely of note in the later 90s during his commissioner run? Not that I'd mark him down for not having anything but would be curious to see if there's anything worth a watch. There's a 2003 episode of Heat where he works Stevie Richards in a fun match where Sarge takes his ridiculous over the top of the post bump to the floor, which is pretty mad for a man in his mid 50s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmJHCxzYe6U

    Pantera Surena

    Is the 27th Feb 85 match available online anywhere? I've seen it be heavily praised from everyone and I've found a few of their matches but none seem to be the most lauded.

    John Bradshaw Layfield

    His All Japan tour with Barry Windham is pretty strong, makes me wonder how far he'd be up the list had he not been stuck in a middling WWF tag tam most of the time until 2004. Gonna watch some of his Europe stuff now since a bunch has been put on YouTube.

    Your #100 Spot

    I could see Kamala as my 100. Someone who absolutely got their gimmick and how to work to it, with a resume that boasts a surprising amount of good stuff. A likely 100 for me, can't see him not being on my list.

    GWE 2021

    Yeah would love to be a part of this as well (especially since the UK has gone into a two month lockdown!) - was a seperate site/board set up for it?
  7. Sarge selling the rolling senton is one of my favourite things, so big and yet so realistic at the same time. Thought the last third or so of the match was maybe not as hot as the middle but still a lot to love. Agreed that the ring announcer added a lot to the proceedings. Slaughter's tackle from the floor in to the ring of Wanz's legs was great too, something you never see but something you'd absolutely do if you were in a scrap with a big fat guy. Great stuff.
  8. I watched this today, mostly because I've been on a Kamala kick recently and also because Wargames is this weekend. I really hoped this was gonna be a hidden gem but it kind of stunk. Nothing happens of note at all, so its just a lot of slow brawling. A couple of high points were Randy Savage and Mengs entrances as they just hit everyone in front of them at 100 miles an hour, and they were two of the only real tempo changes in the match. Enjoyed the brief scuffle between the babyfaces too, and Stings early performance but this was just a bit boring.

    Ricochet

    I dont see tons of his matches, but hes fantastic at facial selling after taking a big move or when in a submission hold - his face will always be up towards the crowd so everyone can see him.

    James Mason

    If he'd been on WOS, I'm sure he would be a contender here. Not enough footage, and whilst can be great is often just ok and relies on clapping whilst in chinlocks and that sort of thing.

    Who is more Uso Crazy?

    I've seen both of them perform FIP and the hot tag, it's not like one is Morton and one is Gibson in each match. I really couldn't split them apart in terms of talent, they're both really good.

    Cesaro

    Will be on my list, so far I've dug pretty much all the indy stuff of his that I've watched, and his standard of work in WWE is very high. Has given several people their best match, and the minor miracle of a match on Main Event with Khali will definitely earn him points. I'm yet to dip back in to his NOAH run with Hero but I remember enjoying much of it at the time.

    Tommy Dreamer

    Big fan of his, but he's not for this list.

    La Fiera

    I've just watched the hairs match with him and Dandy that's on Youtube, and he's great in it. Dandy's obviously a fantastic worker as well and brings it to the match, but I've not seen much of Fiera before and really dug what he did. The cut-offs and hope spots they worked in were great, and the finish was really clever. I'll definitely check out more of his work as he's instantly piqued my interest with that one match.

    Steve Grey

    Steve Grey vs Johnny Kidd - October 2006 Certainly not a high-end Grey match, but definitely a good indicator of what he could in his later years. Still really athletic and showing good personality, and whilst there are some familiar spots and sequences it never seems like too much of an exhibition. This is actually quite short for the kind of match he would be having around this time, but still lots of fun and worth watching for Kidd as well, whose selling I always enjoy. I liked that it has Grey's frustrated elbow smash spot from the Cortez match from about 30 years previous. I'm sure Grey did it a ton in reality, but I'd literally just watched his bout with Cortez and the callback made me smile.
