I had no idea Jushin Liger had an MMA match with Suzuki, how the hell did I miss that?

I also never knew Taka Michinoku had an MMA bout....

Man I gotta find some of these videos.

And come on, there are more Pro-Wrestling fans than this lurking on the site.

I don't know which promotion this was but that was just insanity. I have only seen another thing worse than that and that was the Big Show throwing Al Snow from a gorilla-press onto some chairs set up like that.

That promotion CZW is hardcore but they're just hardcore because they can be, they have nothing else going for them and they overuse the lightbulbs. ECW was the perfect blend of wrestling and hardcore.

New Jack in not correct between the ears I might add.

Hmmmm, what else can I ramble about

The Sabu vs Funk barbedwire ropes match was overall, not a good idea. The though of Sabu cutting his bicep open makes me crinch.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cap4mOJ6N2E

That, has got to be the dumbest thing I've ever witnessed. What on gods green earth possessed them to do an emerald fusion off a house threw a sinlge table? I don't get it, honestly I dont. I realize the influence hardcore wrestling has on some people but jesus.

More on this subject when I have the time.

Suzuki vs Liger was hilarious. Liger fought with his mask off and even attempted this flip type kick that didn't even phase Minoru. Of course, Minoru Suzuki ended up smoking him.

Never did see the Taka fight, I'm interested.

I can't believe there's no love for Ring of Honor.

Easily the top wrestling promotion in america right now in terms of "p-Wrestling done right"

And still, ProWrestling NOAH and Dragon Gate in Japan are putting good shows.

Memorable stuff from Ring of Honor

you should look out for Samoa Joe vs Kenta Kobashi

Lance Storm vs Bryan Danielson

The Briscoe Brothers vs Generico/Steen - Ladder war

Samoa Joe vs CM Punk 2

Could keep on going but im a tad drunk right now.

I can think of so many worse spots, even just from ECW, but especially from XPW and CZW

I'd agree with this yeah, ECW had it right. Those constant lightbulb spots get really, really old.

Any Barbed wire match is idiotic.

For me, the best pro wrestling matches I enjoyed were the endless series between Misawa, Kobashi, Kawada, Hansen, etc. back in the glory days of AJPW. Baba is the GOAT booker. Also if your a nerd for pro wrestling like I was, check out the recent match between Nakamura and Mutoh for the IWGP

For North America wrestling, Ric Flair in his day is always good (Steamboat, Sting, Vader, even Randy Savage). Ring of Honor puts on some serious quality as well, big fan of Bryan Danielson and the Briscoe brothers.

The whole worked shoot thing in Japan is irrelevant now with MMA, and it looks silly to me now. Like I watched Josh Barnett against Don Frye and it was terrible. But check out Mark Coleman's pro wrestling stints that shit is gold

My nerdage for pro wrestling has subsided the past few years, but I still check out time to time. Boxing was my first love for real fighting, but MMA completes the picture and pro wrestling's overall interest fades because of it. I just try to take it as great working and not "fake".

In the past couple years I have by far seen the most innovative wrestling put on, from Dragon Gate, NOAH, CHIKARA, PWG, and ROH to name probably the best promotions going.

TNA used to be heaven for me to watch until they turned there product into the Kurt Angle variety hour. This and the lack of characters in the indy scene really turned me off pro-wrestling.

As far as the best time in wrestling, really it just all depends where you look. I believe the 80's had by far the greatest matches, 90's changed wrestling and gave it a new outlook with deeper and more creative story lines, and right now wrestling just seemed to fall apart on the mainstream. You just don't see the love that the WWE used to have for itself, it's only a shell of what it once was and will never be again.
