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 am on it


Make it good.  You and Carpetbegger are all tied up.  :) 

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


I just viewed it.  Suicide watch has started for CM. 

The other thing that got me pissed were people in their 20's kneeling before thy Great Crimson Mask and slobbering all over their words of praise for Thez, and they probably never even seen a picture of the guy.   They could not pick him out of a line-up of old rasslers, but they just "knew" he was greater than all other champions, because they listened to CM's stupid ass shooter stories.

Does Mask have a electronic shock device that springs him immediately into action?

I think Chernau knows about the carny nature of it all. Nulty and Mike Chapman are way, way more butthurt about their illusions

You guys do know that the moviereels that were used in cinemas were basically highlight reels? Highspots anno 1930 so to speak. No holds, just "action"

Thats like criticising guys like CM Punk for doing indy 60 minute draws by using ROH music videos as an evidence

(Bix, this is a reason why I think that Babinsack is a fucking retard re: his Roland Barthes criticism/hackery)

And the best thing is, those movie reel companies thought that the viewer would get bored after 3 minutes of wrestling highspots. So nothing changed in the last 80 years

Grog is "in da biz" so CM needs to SFTU and respect his opinions.

and the truth be told I would watch a Antonino Rocca marathon before I can make it through your average Lou Thesz match.  I am sure he had some good ones I just don't know when.

Aside from all the WC worship, Thesz was a arrogant fucker who thought his shit didn't stink cause he was a "hooker". Yet he wound up as a $300 a week midcarder for Nick Gulas.

When I started on that board (CLasics) in like 98 or 99???

I realized if you werent down with THEZZ. You werent very smart.

BAMA Wrasslin was better then anything up north.

If you dont agree with someone and they post 700 x's a day you are probably wrong.

Bruno sucked and couldnt been champ in the NWA because he couldnt lay on the mat in some armory in Des Moines, and sell a headlock for 15 mins.

Also the whole fuicking cyber drink theory

and all other sorts of shit.

Please Pray for my Aunts cat she is very sick

thank god for BJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh yeah and crap like this, always refer to the wrestler by the first name as if you just had dinner with them (ALA Ahmad Rashad and his stupid..."I was having dinner with Micheal ...................).

For me, watching Thesz vs Rocca was never a satisfying way to spend ten minutes. Tony was a jumper and a flyer and a dropkicker, and Lou, although he made the same choice that Tony did to participate in The Great Unreal Thing, was the real thing, and it showed.
