    Watching Clash of the Champions IV from '88, and Jim Ross's mancrush on Steve Williams is unbearable to listen to. Williams is supposed to be a heel, but Ross just goes on and on about what an incredible athlete he is and what a great player he was for his beloved Oklahoma Sooners.

    It almost as bad as Bischoff calling a Hogan match in '95, or Vince doing a HBK match in '96.

    I've always enjoyed Ross' infatuation with Dr. Death because of how over the top it was. Even back in 1988 you can see the seeds being sewn for the Brawl for All ten years later. I do enjoy Williams though for the sort of generic roughneck powerhouse that he was.

    Do not disagree with me and Sheiky. We will make you humbell if we must.



    I should probably add that the video above is NSFW.

    Those are solid videos. I've never noticed Flair's forehead looking as bad as it does in the second video. He looks like Dusty Rhodes. I also get a laugh whenever I get the chance to hear Fritz's mutant voice.

    Fritz's voice is incredible and Flair's forehead healed nicely over the years.

    Easily one of the best talkers ever People tend to sleep on the young version of Cornette, but a lot of his best promo work was in the 80s on NWA TV. I really like this whole standard wrestling cliche segment from early in his career:

    Dr. D is always a great promo to watch, off the top of my head probably the best promo of the early 80s along with Rhodes. The proto-Austin. If he was just good in the ring he'd be an all time great.

    Still the funniest wrestling blooper I've seen:






    So here's 2 trivia questions for the rasslin' fans here:

    - name the masked wrestler in the above videos ( hint: without a mask he was part of a well known real life brother tag team ) ????
    - what name did his brother wrestle under during his WWF stint ????

    When Flair, Savage, Michaels, and Hart retired that was when wrestling died for me. :(
