All that remains of the 2006 threads

Recommended Posts

None of the links work, but now the newer posters at least know we didn't pretend there was a 2006 poll, and you can see what was being discussed at the time if nothing else.

Continuing to read that thread and it looks like a lot of us shared our final ballots in it. I was a lot more adventurous then it would seem, trying to put people like El Texano in my top 100.

I'm glad the links don't work. I absolutely don't want to see some probably idiotic stuff I said back then ! Plus I was probably a much bigger asshole than I am now.

"the myth that Hogan was good in Japan" was probably a quote from me. And yeah, I still stand strong about it. The idea that Hogan was somewhat much better in Japan came from the fact he used to show a little bit more and that he didn't Hulk up, but after a while you realize he was just doing the same crappy looking routine that looked cool the first time you see it because it's unexpected. Hogan in the 80's didn't strike me as much better, the Inoki matches are painfull. Yeah, Stan Hansen beats him up to one of his best matches over there, but then again, Stan is a #1 contender for best ever. I hope Hogan drops today.

I agree on Hogan in Japan. I think it was easy to convince oneself of it because WWF was cartoony and Japan was the land of real wrestling and Hogan "used more moves" there, but his matches there aren't anything special compared to either the good Japanese matches or the good Hogan in WWF matches.

FWIW, the most fun I had watching Hogan work (hell, the only time I really had fun, although I do like some of his WWF work) was during his Hollywood Hogan era, when he had his working shoes on and was really good playing heel, even making one-hip Piper look good and looking better than Ric Flair was at the same time.

What are the good Hogan in WWF matches exactly?

 

Andre, Savage, Warrior, Slaughter, Race, Bossman, Schultz, Valentine, Orndorff off the top of my head. Assuming we're just talking about that 80s period.

 

I think he had a lot of good matches during the Hulkamania run. One of the reasons why he's on my list.

Backlund vs. heel Hogan from the Spectrum in '80 is excellent. Hogan-Funk from SNME isn't great, but it's kind of amazing to watch those two together at the beginning of '86.

Wow, the objectivity/subjectivity and the entire greatest vs favourites divide was just as strong 10 years ago.

And Shawshank Rudotion was certainly a feisty one.

I wish he was still around. He seems like a good opponent for JVK.

He wasn't always that feisty. He just really hated the idea of GWE. Opinionated, yes, but not feisty. He was also at DVDVR as ValeRudo and Ravishing Rick Rudo if that rings any bells.
