    Worst Professional Wrestler Ever?

    The best Tiger Jeet Singh match ever: http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/11/new-footage-friday-billy-black-wahoo.html?m=1

    WWE Crown Jewel: No Girlz ALLOWED~!

    They're just setting up Survivor Series, right? It's all fodder for that.

    WWE Crown Jewel: No Girlz ALLOWED~!

    International atrocities aside, I'd have to lose a bet to willingly watch a Ziggler vs Rollins match.

    Are there any good books about Lucha?

    Around once every six weeks or so, Cubsfan will update his database with old results. (Here's an example of one of those posts: http://www.thecubsfan.com/cmll/2018/06/18/1960s-coahuila-durango-lineups-added-to-the-luchadb/)

    Coincidentally, I'm "making" Phil and Eric watch an unearthed Tiger Jeet Singh match for New Footage Fridays this week. Watch this space.

    WON HOF 2018

    Anyone who has ever watched more than one Breaks match? More seriously, the problem I have with trying to figure out the UK guys for WON HOF inclusion is that the usual drawing/touring/loops metrics aren't at all 1 to 1. Our exposure is basically the TV show, but they were working up and down the country on a weekly basis and that's very opaque to us in both qualitative and quantitative terms in 2018.

    Animated GIF thread

    Nick Bockwinkel. That did finish the second fall, btw, with them spending a few minutes tending to Jumbo's neck between falls. This isn't some modern wrestling where nothing has any weight or meaning to it.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    So that Jake vs Sawyer match might be my favorite Jake performance ever.

    For people who think I am entirely cold and analytic with this stuff, I fully admit having an ear to ear grin upon my face watching the crowd's reaction to Roop nailing Wrestling II with the cane for the transition.

    Proposal for 2018: Match Review Trades

    Thanks for the nudge. I think we're still aiming for post-thanksgiving for a truly yuletide feel but maybe I'll try to set us up in the week or two prior so we can hit the ground running.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Teaming with LeDuc too. Do we have LeDuc earlier than 74?

    WWE Network... It's Here

    Are ALL of these new? I can't remember if I've seen that AWA footage. Khawk? Kelly(on the MSG match)? Texas Rasslin’ 06/17/1952 – Legendary Lou NWA World Heavyweight Champion Lou Thesz puts his title on the line against the dangerous Wild Bill Longson. WWWF @ MSG 01/31/1972 – The Great Gotch Karl Gotch makes his impact felt on U.S. soil when he teams with Rene Goulet to face The Rugged Russians at Madison Square Garden. Championship Wrestling from Florida 11/12/1974 – Oklahoma’s Favorite Son The highly revered Danny Hodge joins forces with wild man Jos Leduc to battle the dastardly duo of Pak Song and Toru Tanaka. Stampede Wrestling 08/12/1983 – Japanese Pride Before becoming one of Japan’s most controversial figures in MMA, Nobuhiko Takada traveled to Canada to face Athol Foley. AWA 10/18/1984 – To Catch a Model Billy Robinson, accompanied to the ring by WWE Hall of Famer Lord Alfred Hayes, takes on Rick Martel in this contest from Canada.

    WWE TV 10/01 - 10/07 LIV'S ALIVE

    And does it even matter since it was about sports and not anything to do with whatever they were presenting? I don't think the crowd bought the attempts to turn it towards Cena. They were still booing, but they weren't booing that.

    Is Negro Casas finally washed up?

    The fact of the matter is that he's the only guy in wrestling who is going to do stuff like this week in and week out. Maybe he can't hit as many spots as quickly as before, but you can go back or forward ten years and you'll probably have nothing like this on a regular basis: He pretends to steal the guy's phone. How great is that?
