Part 2.

Tamura vs Volk Freakin' Han!

Minoru Suzuki vs Masakatsu Funaki.

Akira Maeda vs Yamazaki (UWF). Part 1.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPB_v4waSuY

Part 2.

This is how I like my pro-wrestling: Realistic, groundbreaking and emotional. A lot of the UWF stuff was way, way, way before its time, same with Rings. Volk Han was the badass, who pulled off crazy leg-locks, all while showing little to no emotion. Minoru Suzuki was the badass, little punk, who smirked when he kicked you in the leg. Maeda was the asskicker, who would kick your face in if you mess with him. Tamura was the spunky underdog.

I don't watch pro-wrestling anymore, mostly because it's freakin' stupid. I wouldn't mind watching 2 guys work a shoot style match, though, as I really enjoy those. I liked what I saw from Big Mouth Loud, U-Style was fun and Hustle is hilarious, but other than that, I got nothing.

So yeah, what is pro-wrestling done right in your opinion? I know, me making a pro-wrestling topic? Well, watching Volk Han leg-lock fools got me motivated to make one.

Discuss.

For me, Pro-Wrestling was done perfectly in the 90s. When the storylines were interesting and not so stupid. And the wrestlers weren't all Chris Masters. Perhaps it was because I was younger, but the days of Sid Vicious comedy and The Rock and stuff were perfect.

The early 90's was the greatest Wrestling era. Thats when we had good guys and bad guys, Hulk Hogan was dominating, The warrior was all roided up and the storylines were fantastic. Who can honestly tell me that when the undertaker was introduced everyone wasn't like AHHH HELL YEAH haha

I still watch it sometimes, but yeah the storylines now are garbage, however there are some new wrestlers that put on a good show, for example on ECW this week the Evan Bourne match was good stuff, beatiful shooting star press at the end.

As far as the 90's North American pro-wrestling scene goes, nothing tops 1992-1994 (Pre-Hogan) WCW. You had great feuds like Sting vs Vader, Bill Watts booking and a roster that was unreal.

I'm wondering just how good was Sakuraba's pro-wrestling career, as I haven't really paid enough attention to it outside of the Tamura matches and the Bad News Allen match. TheNegation needs to get his ass in here and tell me about Saku's pro-wrestling career. Oh, and he had that one match with Ohtani that I thought sucked.

Man I wrote a massive rant on ECW, FMW, CZW and XPW(I hated the last two) Attitude era, New Jack, Meng/Haku, Hayabusa, Mike awesome, Masato Tanaka.............loads of other stuff....

Then I click to post and their was a database error, whole thing went down the shitter

I may write another tomorrow, I have other things to rant about tonight.

On Sakurabas Pro-Wrestling career, man I like his matches, but it seriously pains me to see Sakuraba lose to guys like Koji Kanemento.

Awesome links thanks for sharing. Cool stuff man, I wouldn't even call this pro-wrestling, it's like watching two guys work a shooto-style match, like you said. Awesome




What a stud

I watched this one CZW match that had this one guy named Ric Blade in it. Just horrible. Dude botched every move he tried, it was embarrassing.

Yep, and you really can't go wrong with guys like Tamura, Han and Suzuki. Those guys always produce great match after great match.

Even though I'm a huge Frank Shamrock fan, I still haven't seen his Rings match against TK. I bet that's great.

Was UWF what was shown as 'Bushido' on Bravo in the UK?

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.

and then we had blueberry pie...
