the 90s were the best days of wrestling(back when it was called WWF), the story lines were good back then not like they are now and the wrestlers back then were so much better the rock, stone cold, mankind. when mankind V triple H in hell in the cell and mankind got thrown through the top of the cage, and big show V shane Mcmahn and he chockslammed him off the titontrone.

ah good times

If so I remember that and it was really well done. I watched it for a while and it built up Gary Albright as a monster to a big showdown with Tanaka (?). made you able to actually suspend your disbelief.
Yeah, that's the UWFi, which is basically UWF with Takada running things.

Yeah, Albright vs Takada was a pretty well worked feud, nice bits of realism, though, to be honest, Takada never really did much for me as a shoot style worker. I'm sure many shoot style fans would kill me for saying that, but I just didn't like him and his Rocky Balboa imitating. It got old.

I really liked the 90's era with Randy Savage and Sting and Ultimate Warrior. Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels were some of my favorites. I never watched the Japanese stuff because I was young and didn't know about it but pro wrestling used to be so awesome.

I'm with you man, Takada was not cool.


God, czw/xpw waas part of my rant. It's like they bought the whole hardcore elementof ecw and brought it to new, highly retarded levels, missing the entire pont of ECW.
They had some cool spots, like ZZandig and Mondos bump from the shed roof and New Jack with the highest Balcony dive I have ever seen, but the wrestling sucked really hard.

Vader was awesome

Okay, TheNegation, what's the verdict on Saku's pro-wrestling work? I need to know if it's as good or better than Kiyoshi Tamura. I've only seen a few Saku matches. IVPVideos.com is selling a Saku's greatest hits comp.

Also, those Bas Rutten shoot style matches that Terry77 posted a little while back were cool.

OK, have you tracked down all the matches you can find on youtube and dailymotion?

You'll love the last one.

Honestly these should be able to make your mind up for you.


I would say Saku is better, but then you have to remember I am a fan of Saku and not of Tamura.

It's at least as good, if you like Tamura then you are obviously going to like Sakus matches. I'd say get the thing.

I still like pro-wrestling, I tune into RAW every now and then but man, has it ever gone down hill.

I heard Taker retired, anyone confirm this/care?

I miss the old ECW. Hearing the audience chant E C W ! like they really believed in it, these days it just sounds soo forced.

Just a few days ago on gaytube, I was watching a list of the 'Holy Sh*t' moments in pro-wrestling. I got to about #50 before I stopped watching and went to bed but jesus, brings back alot of memories. Some of those things those guys did in WWF/WWE and ECW back then, it was insane. It was hard to believe that it was all scripted watching them.

Taker retiring is storyline, he was thrown out of the WWE because he lost a match to Edge.

To answer the original question of this thread, this is how I like my Pro-Wrestling, ridiculous and violent.
I was into the whole, Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior, The Rock stuff as a kid, but then I saw ECW stuff and was like "Whoah, wrestling can be like this?"

ECW was more extreme, had better wrestlers from places like Japan and Mexico....I was hooked.

I can still watch this stuff and be amazed at the spots and the athletic ability of these guys.

Thank you, kind sir, I will get the thing. That Kashin match was a blast. Sakuraba can perform one swank german suplex.
