  1. Welsh will never stop sounding weird. Fun match, lots of nasty shots. I liked the Fireman's Carry attempts a lot and Roach hit a magnificent Big Boot during his comeback. Murphy continues to legitimize himself to me as a great bumper. ***
  2. Good grief finding accurate dates for european matches (accurate as in them matching up in OJ's list and the youtube upload description) is nearly impossible half the time. I really like the way Murphy uses holds to control his opponents and how he will resort to cheapshots and grinding away at their face once he's in trouble. He's also really good at cutting his opponents off-him goading George into attacking him while he was playing to the crowd in the corner only to cut him off with a Back Elbow ruled as did his Clothesline. The spot where George countered Murphy ramming his head into the corner post because his head was too hard was neat but George wasn't that interesting on offence, some solid dropkicks and headbutts but the repetition of them wasn't compelling. Geore did do an amazing sell job to set up the Gator. Finish was interesting and a neat way to put over Murphy's finishing hold. *** edit: I just found the site where OJ gets hit dates from and this is actually 8/19 oooooops.
  3. OK match. I liked the opening a lot as Haystacks attacked Muprhy outside of the ring and slammed his head into the apron and stomped him, that's not something I've ever seen in WOS or Reslo before. Haystack's control segment was not as interesting here as it was in their 1988 match as it had more rope choking and wandering around. Murphy's body shot that allowed him to turn the transition back into offence and the corner post shot was cool, and his punches look good here too but there wasn't much to this match. **1/2
  4. I don't know how interested YOU are in a giant fat guy but I had a blast watching this. Loved the spot where Murphy put on an Armlock and Haystacks just pushed him away. Murphy fought back with very good looking punches but spend most of the time bumping (quite nicely!) for Haystacks's stuff and he took a really nice bump for the finish. ***
  5. Fun hoss battle. First round wasn't much and consisted mostly of them trading basic holds. Match gets going when Murphy takes over, he carried the match nicely with his striking, he has very good cheapshots and I loved his Clothesline cut off. He put on a very strong selling performance here, loved he sold the threat of a Cobra Twist and the impact of Elijah's moves as well. Elijah looked solid but didn't do anything memorable outside of maybe the greatest Bearhug I've ever seen. ***
  6. How smart someone must have felt after coming up with the name Quick Kick Lee. I came into this wondering how Maeda would look in World Of Sport but holy shit Skull Murphy ruled here. They did some fun chain wrestling to start the bout off but then they transitioned into Murphy's control segment and the match just became so badass, Murphy rocked Maeda with vicious punches, elbows, uppercuts and knees and showcased he could do these awesome huge bumps but only used them as key transitions. And his stalling ruled. Maeda did some nice kicks and the spot where he countered Murphy's leg split by showing off his flexibility was awesome. ***1/2
