Reactions to the Honorable Mention List Part One

Recommended Posts

The list will be a nice locked thread, so people can read it later without all of the comments confusing it. Here will be a place to react and give comments.

 

Unless everybody would rather comment in the list threads.. up to you folks.

I feel at least a little better that Shane only got one vote. And less votes than Vince.

Shane is higher though, so Shane is the better wrestler!!!!!

Surprised some of those names werent a little higher, especially Pogo but maybe not many deathmatch fans voting. Love that Tor Kamata got a vote.

Shut up shut up!

 

And yeah, Kofi Kingston being the 558th best wrestler in the world sounds oddly right for this board.

Nice to see that WingedEagle voted for Teranishi. I think if the guy got more chances that were on tape he would get much more credit. Its hard to build a GWE case off of 6 or 7 clipped midcard matches on TV a year but he always looked good in them.

Grimmas: you do it your way and I don't mean to push it if it's a hassle or mess, but in the cases where multiple people voted for someone, is there any chance of writing out who the other voters were beyond the High Vote? Or are the votes you're not showing all anonymous? Even in the cases where only two people voted for someone, I'd think those two people would be into knowing they had the same taste. "I thought I was the only one who loved Chicky Starr this much!", etc. But maybe people will just reveal their picks in this thread? Either way, this is awesome.

 

Also: Freelance is one of the great What Ifs in wrestling and I really wish he was still making tape as much as he was in '08. Easily could have made my list with more matches filmed / more recent stuff fresh on my mind.

Second high voter was anonymous. All left blank names beside high vote is due to saying people wanted to be anonymous.

Boricua, the Exile on Badstreet on Invader with you, Kris Zellner and Dylan Hales was what introduced me to Chicky Starr and his awesomeness. Thank you so much.

 

I haven't seen as much Puerto Rico as I would like, but from what I've seen, he's the best heel in Puerto Rico history, which for a list like this, counts for something.

You are very welcome, so happy that you discovered Chicky thanks to the show. At his peak, the greatest heel in Puerto Rico wrestling history.

2006 Smarkschoice placements for the guys listed thus far:

218) El Faraon – 96 Points

281) Gran Apache – 36 Points

302) Mikey Whipwreck – 12 Points

329) Phil Hickerson – 42 Points

381) Johnny Ace – 14 Points

383) Les Kellet – 13 Points

387) Genki Horiguchi – 12 Points

 

Substantial drops ten years later for Faroan and Apache. In the case of Faroan, I think a number of people were exposed to the bloody Pirata Morgan match and some of his other stuff around that time. Interesting that Gran Apache's '06 ranking came before the great Apache family feud that only should have helped his case, but being in the AAA midcard isn't good for anyone these days.

 

No one voting for Ricky Fuyuki or Bobby Fulton in '06 is kind of surprising given the SC crowd and market share of voter conscience that 80s Crockett/All Japan and 90s FMW had on that board.

Surprised I was the only one who voted for Faraon. He had good stuff sprinkled throughout the 80s and some great singles matches in the early 90s, enough for bottom 10 placement for me.
