Where have I been? I didn't know anything about this rasslin thread, course I am still new to Whipping Post. One thing I'm not new to is Rasslin'.
My dad used to take me to the matches back in the 60's. I've seen Bo Bo Brazil vs the "original" Sheik many times and if he wasn't doing battle with the Sheik it was none other than the baddest man rasslin has ever seen and that being Dick the Bruiser. If you look at Brock Lesnar and have seen old school rasslin you'd swear he's related to Dick the Bruiser.
Alex Karras made a comment about how rasslin was fake and Dick the Bruiser went to a club Karras owned looking for him. Story goes that Dick beat up every bouncer in the club and half the police force in town(Detroit?). He was bad!
Best announcer, hands down, Gordon Solie. Those old Georgia Championship Wrestling shows were the best. Then you had Mid-South. Where Rick Flair, Ricky Steamboat, and Jim Ross were featured.
I have many stories to tell about rasslin. One of them is I was in a club back home watching my roomie's band playing. I had this guy standing next to me with silver hair. I recognized him right off the get go, but I went ahead and asked him what his name was.
"Tommy," he replied in a low voice. I told him I knew it was, but wanted to make sure. We had a few beers and talked about the old days of rasslin. He was one helluva guy.
One other thing, I have heard that a certain member of our favorite band is a rasslin fan. Anyone know who this is?

Okay, here's a story I have for you fans of rasslin.

I won tickets to a WWF match in Huntington, WV about 12 years ago. I won 8 tickets altogether. Four general admission and four front row seats.
I had a friend who's live in gf had a young son(Jeremiah) around the age of 12. I found out that his older brother was supposed to get him a ticket and fouled him. So, I asked him if he'd like to come along.
Well, I had the four general admission tickets, but I didn't know exactly where those other four seats would be. I was told by the radio station that they could be picked up at the box office at the Civic Center.
All the way up to Huntington from my home in Ohio Jeremiah kept telling us how his brother always got good seats and if I didn't mind could he sit with him. I told him I didn't mind.
We got up to the match and went to the box office. I gave them my name and they had this guy in a tuxedo escort us right down to those front row seats! Little Jeremiah was really excited about all this and was turned around looking for his brother. Turns out his brother was way back in the grandstand and Jeremiah hollered out at him, "hey, look at us!"
We were on television so much it wasn't funny. The cameras must have liked my tie dyed t-shirt or something, plus we got to go back behind the stage and meet a rassler. Kerry Von Erich. The folks at WWF gave me all kinds of fan stuff, t-shirts, belts, Macho Man scarfs, etc etc. Course I let the young man have it all.
It made me feel really good to see him have such a good time. Oh, by the way. I didn't scalp the four general admission tickets. I gave them to a group of boys outside the arena. They were so happy when I handed them the tickets.

I was thinking about bringing this thread back to life, especially with the reestablishment of ECW (as a brand of WWE - ugh, but what can you do?), and, as Wharfie mentioned, Degeneration X. TNA's starting to get a little more interesting, too.

Kerry Von Erich, he was definitely one of my favorites.

WWE now owns all of the old WCCW tape, so maybe at some future point we'll see some of those classic matches. I'd love to see a good Von Erich vs. Freebirds match-up again.

According to the plan, this should be out now:

http://www.rightherepictures.com/

Anyone catch it yet?

The Von Erich's(Adkisson) have had their share of tragedies. When we went backstage to meet Kerry it was obvious he was effed up. He didn't know who he was scheduled to wrestle, only replying that he was gonna "whoop em."

I've been following TNA lately, if they'd get rid of Jarrett it would be better off. They have many younger guys who need to be moved up the ladder. I think they're doing it with Samoa Joe, but they need to push Daniels and Styles.

Wasn't USWA where Jerry Lawler did the pile drive Andy Kaufman? I never was too much a fan of Lawler's, something about his personality. Now that he's part of WWE I like him even less. He acts like a teenage jerkaholic whenever the Diva's come out. He probably plays with himself under the announcer's table. Watch out JR, he might give you a reach around!

You are correct. I don't like him on WWE, but I don't like WWE it's ruined wrestling.

I like Lawler. He sponsered this kid that was racing in the ARCA series a few years ago. He spoke to me and signed something and we stood around and talked for a few minutes

I've been checking out those clips from the site you put up. I remember a lot of them, especially the pile driver move. Classic rasslin. Even though I didn't care for Lawler back in his heydays, he was still entertaining. There's a lot of rasslers I don't care for, but realize they make the show. Who can forget Tully Blanchard? What a jerk, but that's part of it. He couldn't even suplex a man, had to come up with that slingshot suplex. sheesh!
Dusty Rhodes and the Chief "Wahoo" McDaniels. Two of my favs. My fishing partner and I refer to ourselves as Team McDaniels. I've called him the "Chief" since high school days back in Ohio. He lives right around the block from me in Winter Haven. Small world eh?
Oh, Austin Idol used to say whenever he hit town the divorce rate went up! lol

I'm sure glad to see the Sandman again.Always liked that nasty beer swillin' mean lookin' cuss.I never thought I'd see him working for Mcmahon after that stunt he pulled 10 years ago when he was in the frontrow at a WWF PPV in Philly with Heyman & Dreamer & he spit a schitload of beer in one of the WWF wrestlers face at ringside- classic.I forget the wrestlers name,he was a black guy-I think he was part of the "Nation" thing or whatever it was called with Ron Simmons(Faruk).That whole strip tease thing with that girl last nightwas a foolish waste o time,if I wanna get turned on I'll chuck in some freakin porn.I dig the whole ECW thing,but it struck me(once again) last night how Mcmahon & Pro wrestling are just abot synonomous today.Now he's got 3 nights a week.& now he own's all the old WCCW tapes?It's the mans mission in life to own & control all the Wrestling in this world.I support TNA if for no other reason then that.They also have some kick-ass wrestling in the X division.I agrre Skypup,they would be alot better off without Jarret-but don't hold your breath,his daddy Jerry is an owner/booker

If only Vince would pay Metallica for the rights to play Enter Sandman, but that aint happening.

WCCW, ECW, WCW (going all the way back to all Jim Crockett tapes), AWA, Stampede (except all Bret Hart matches which Bret still owns), Mid-Atlantic, Georgia, and he's been trying to get the Florida tapes from Eddie Graham's son for years.

Fortunately for us, Jerry is no longer a majority owner. TNA is owned by Panda Energy. They have some fun and great matches but I think they need to get away from their current "WWE Lite" creative direction. Giving bags of dough to Sting and Kevin Nash are not going to build you anything for the future. You have to create stars...

Those Florida shows were awesome. My father and I went down to Fort Myers for the winter and I got my fill of rasslin. Back then Florida stations showed rasslin almost all day long on Saturdays.

You guys remember when Magnum got injured and Dusty got his new partner? A little wrestling trivia. Who was it and what did they call themselves?

October 1986. Charlotte, NC. As JJ Dillon and Ole Anderson waited in the cage for the upcoming match between Dusty Rhodes and the mystery replacement for Magnum, Dusty walked out with Nikita Koloff, and the place went absolutely ape$hit, still considered one of the loudest and longest pops of all time. Dusty and Nikita teamed as "The Super Powers" for about two years following.

hmm. Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy of the Freebirds?

Old School I would have a hard time with that mainly because I didn't watch WWF that much. How bout. Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan?

Bruiser Bob Sweetan


There was a particular brand of heel in the 70's and early 80's that you just loved to hate. Guys like Sweetan, Dirty Dick Slater, Dick Murdoch. Loved all those guys.

I will never hate another wrestler as much as I hated Eddie Gilbert. Little bastid spat at me in in the front row at a UWF show.

And little Maria's pretty cute, too.

That's cool, it's about time they put somebody real in front of Umaga, instead of old fat guys and what do you call them . . . jobbers?

I thought Viscera was going to give him a fight a few weeks ago, but apparently not.
