    - the guy in red is the English version of Kendo Nagasaki


    - the big guy in the middle of the ring is Andre the Giant. :amazed:
    - the guy with stripes on his trunks and boots is Johnny Rodz
    - I think the guy throwing the punch in the top left corner is Rick " Quick Draw " McGraw

    I can understand Johnson just fine, but I do want to note that Michael Hayes is only in his mid 30s during that segment.

    Is the early 90s WCW version of the Dangerous Alliance the most underrated stable of alltime?

    Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbysko, Bobby Eaton with Paul Heyman as manager. That's a lot of talent in one stable. I hated them as a kid because I was a big fan of their main rivals Sting, Steamboat, Windham and Rhodes. I think if Heyman had stuck around longer and they had better booking the group wouldn't be so forgotten.

    I've lost all my affection for the AWA, but I've become a huge NWA fan.

    It's a great stable on paper, just didn't get a great push. If a few things broke the right way, with Rude staying healthy, WCW getting behind Austin, Heyman sticking around, it could have been something very memorable. That's still an enjoyable time in WCW though despite the consistently inconsistent booking. It would have been nice if Rude could have won the real WCW championship during that era.

    All of them. Here's an odd thing about the AWA. Except for Hulk and Mr Perfect (Bockwinkel if the reader considers him a big name outside the AWA), they never let the bigger names become the AWA World Heavyweight Champion. Weird.

    AWA might have been the best company in the Early 80s, but once Hogan and a bunch of othera left in 84 they ran on fumes for a year or so(mainly because the Road Warriors) then soon after they just crumbled

    I was doing a deep dive into 1999-2000 for the 20th anniversary of the Devils Cup run that season. In trying to get back into my mindset at the time, oddly I was able to place some wrestling memories fairly vividly. I had forgotten that the Mike Awesome WCW/ECW ordeal happened as the playoffs were starting that season. It was kinda odd knowing that in less than a year WCW and ECW would go belly up. But in the moment, that was a wild week.

    Anything he said about gays pales in comparison to what he said about Bobby Heenan when he was battling cancer. I'm not even going to quote it because it's that sick and messed up.

    His comments about hurricane Katrina were something else too

    from what many people around the industry say about him as a person one of the best things the ultimate warrior did was die


    Imagine dressing up like he did in the ring and being a homophobe. Kind of reminds me of anti-gay politicians who get caught doing salacious stuff in the men’s room

    Been watching old WWF PPVs lately while I kill the late nights the past couple months or so. I chose to go w/PPV series instead of everything in order, and started w/WrestleManias. It's fun watching them like this and seeing how things quickly changed and grew.

    I'd been a fan since the mid 80s and remember at least since WM4 and stopped watching a lot sometime in the early 00s. Soon after, entirely. I'm finishing up WM20 right now and it won't be long before I reach the point where I stopped watching as an adult and go back to the old school stuff again. This time I'll watch those PPVs in order so I can get a better "real time" flow of things. Either way, they're such great memories. It's crazy how much I remember from 30 years ago.

    "On the death of actor Heath Ledger (who had played a homosexual character in the film Brokeback Mountain):
    By today's standard, though, I do have to agree that he was a great father. Perhaps even greater then the father of the year, Hulk Hogan. After all, Leather Hedger did what it took to kill himself. His kid is without a father, yes, but the negative influence is now removed and his own child has the chance for a full recovery." WWE Is Whitewashing The Ultimate Warrior's Bigoted Past

    Apparently UW didn't visit reality often. Obviously there's nothing wrong with being gay. Playing a gay character doesn't mean the actor is gay. :rolleyes:

    From all the documentaries and stories about the Warrior, I think this is what a lot of his colleagues thought as well.

    As a kid I thought his promos fit his character perfectly, but more and more it seems it wasn't even a character. Just his actual reality.
