I see a lot of posters on here always bringing up Lou Thesz sarcastically.

May I ask why you all do this? Was it something he said when he was alive and posting at Wrestling Classics?

Or is it just a way to parody the posters at WC?

I agree with Beejmi.  I don't see it as a knock on Thesz (usually) but on the WC posters.

WCMB is too Thesz-centric. Only Bert Assirati will be pimped because Thesz pimped him. There are many, many other wrestlers who had Assiratis qualities and were maybe even more successful, but that doesn't matter as they weren't pimped by Thesz. Also, Thesz was quite bitter for a superstar, so he put a lot of his peers down just to stroke his ego and dismiss other success stories.

So in the end Thesz-centric history is comparable to fans who drink the WWE cool aid. Should we be satisfied with it? Hell no

It was much worse years ago, especially while he was alive and the first couple years after he died.

Partially that too that era isn't the best in terms of "action" then you have people fawning all over it

Gorgeous George was colorful, Antonino Rocca was entertaining, the Duseks were a riot.  There were some guys with charisma and flair.  Not all 60 minute arm bar matches.

I'd love someone to start a WC thread about how Rocca was so much better than Thesz.

I couldn't go too over board but I doubt it will stay up there long any way.
