    Hoho, here is a little tibit for you, Ibushi's dive off the balcony got him banned from Budokan Hall for life. Which means Ibushi will not be able to be in the G1 this year.


    The match, I really liked though I felt it outstayed it's welcome by five minutes.

    Are you serious?? They are holding a grudge still from 6 years ago lolz. Come on I really loved the G1 Climax last year and your telling me he's out especially with Kenny and him back together that saddens me. Maybe we need to slide some 20 dollar bills into whoever pockets to make sure he's on there, because Naito/Ibushi was one of my favorite Matches from the G1 Climax 27 and in 2017 in general.

    Sadly, yes. I think they asked them specifically don't do the spot but they did it anyway. New Japan will probably try and fix that but at the moment, he can't be in the G1 since the lat three shows are in Budokan Hall.

    Nick Bockwinkel vs Jumbo Tsuruta[02/22/1984]
    -Hey there familia, so lately I've been so busy just trying to watch Wrestling outside of the US with work as many of us get swamped, but today I have a day off so I decided to get some Matches in. I was recommended this Match on Twitter and how could I say no I won't watch it when it's Bockwinkel and Tsuruta going at it for the AWA World Title I'm I right? I had no clue my amigo Jumbo ever wrestled for the AWA World Title, so called me shocked to see him in the ring with one of the best talents in Wrestling ever in Nick Bockwinkel. So many Wrestlers have copied the style not only in the Ring, but outside of it from Bockwinkel and why wouldn't you when he was that damn good before Triple H made it into a catchphrase. I gotta be honest as well, seeing Terry Funk of all people as Referee is the last thing I thought I would see ever. Terry Funk seems to me not the greatest person to be a Referee, he has a shorter fuse than Scott Steiner he's liable to decide the outcome of a Match if one of the guys don't say in line. Remember what he did to Flair in 89, dude is nuts! Early on Bockwinkel started working on the Arm to the point where I'm like come on guys pick up the pace and they did later in the Match. What made me a little mad, no not Funk's Outfit, but after all the work Bockwinkel put on Jumbo's Arm, he eventually gets up and he's okay and acting as if nothing happened in the last 12 mins of the Match ah no lol. Either way the Match got good once both started to let loose, and we never got to see an rematch from what I saw on the history of the title anyone know why it didn't happened?

    After this Match we we have Flair vs Martel fighting for the title in 85 in Japan, rather than Jumbo running through cream of the crop of talent in the AWA at the time what was going on in the AWA back then? Later today hopefully I get a new Women's Match in, but for sure next Match in this thread we get a debut of a WCW talent, and he'll be a Man that calls himself a Man of Thousands hold if you willllll.

    Re: HoHo's Excellent Adventure

    They never got a rematch because Jumbo lost it to Rick Martel a few months later in his first title defence. I think they wanted to makes Rick Martel the new guy and this was the way they chose.

    I should treat myself to Martel's work because I never truly saw his work before his WWE days, before joining Strikeforce and later as the Model. New entry coming later after I watch the Greatest Royal Rumble Show, and then I'm going to see Infinity War so I'll be posting a huge review like I do later.

    Dean Malenko vs Rey Mysterio[Great American Bash 1996]
    -Well I did say it was a debut right? One of the best debuts I've seen from a talent had to be Rey Mysterio when he arrived on the scene in WCW in 96. Previously I saw Mysterio in ECW in 95 and how he tore it up there, but I didn't have anyway to see him when he was with AAA or anyone else. So when I heard Rey Rey was going to face Malenko one on one for the WCW Cruiserweight Title I nearly fainted at the thought he was coming there. Even at 21 years old at the time, Mysterio had the experience of a man twice as old as he was, and it shows with his Match with the Man of Thousands holds. Early on Rey Mysterio is showing why was one of the best Luchadors in the Industry, flying around the ring making it look easy outsmarting Malenko surprisingly. Malenko obviously didn't like that at all, and he went into the mode of, you're not going to make me look like a fool kid in your debut. No Malenko didn't need to work on the legs of Mysterio taking away his abilities to fly around the ring, which is in hindsight he was wrong in not doing it, but he wanted to show everyone I can break apart another Wrestler, any part of the body, and anytime he damn well pleases.

    After Malenko started to use his Size Advantage and Technical Abilities, Mysterio was taken to the Woodshed of Submissions for a good period of time. As the Match goes on Malenko starts to get frustrated because he cannot keep the will of Mysterio down, even while he's in the pain of his life. The fans in attendance embraced that will of his, and as Mysterio finally was able to get back into the fight, the people were very much wanting to see Mysterio take the title away from Malenko. He nearly got it done, and it took one mistake from mistake from Mysterio to end his fight, but the war between Mysterio and Malenko has just begun!

    Dean Malenko vs Rey Mysterio[Monday Nitro]
    -When it works one night why not do it again, and that is what WCW did in 96 putting in Mysterio vs Malenko once again for the WCW Cruiserweight Title. You could tell if you saw their previous Match, the difference of what went on. The night before Malenko played it up that he was in trouble with Mysterio, but on Nitro he knew what was coming from Mysterio and was ready for him at every pass during this Match.

    Dean Malenko vs Rey Mysterio[Monday Nitro]
    -This was the night after Hulk Hogan turned heel, so pretty much you can say the fans in attendance were really excited with everything with WCW this night. Did it seem to just to me that any time Malenko and Guerrero faced Mysterio they seemed to want to make it sense like he wanted to kill Rey Rey? Anyways the people are so into Rey getting the Title away from Malenko this night and it came to pass, when Malenko made the mistake of pulling up Mysterio's head off the Mat when he had him dead to rights. Malenko's over confidence made him a former champion this night, and made Mysterio's legacy grow even more.

    Also as a side note can someone do the Gutbuster off the Top Rope please? That Move was always one of my favorite Moves to see, and Malenko did it to perfection more guys to should use it.

    Ricky Steamboat vs Rick Rude - 30 Minute IronMan Match - WCW Beach Blast 1992

    It all started when Rick Rude break Steamboat's Nose as these two were feuding throughout the year of 1992. Rude would later have multiple ladies come to WCW saying they had some good times with Steamboat, and that was a total opposite of who Ricky is in his real life so safe to say Rude was so in his dick mode during this feud with Steamboat. It led them to WCW Beach Blast in 1992 and honestly this Match still holds up today being still in my top Matches from both guys. Steamboat for eight straight minutes would give Rude the beating of his life, going to the Ribs that he opened up early in the Match. Rude's selling while Steamboat and his legendary Sociology plays such an important throughout this Match and it's beautiful to see.

    Rude even though he was in pain, taking all the punishment coming from the anger in Steamboat was able to get the first fall and within moments being up 2-0 on Steamboat and what a turn of events that was to see during the Match. I love the moment seeing Rude go to the top, knowing he would be DQed, would rather cripple Steamboat knowing it could give him more falls in the Match damn it's smart apart of Rude to watch. Before too long, Steamboat would be down to the U.S Champion 3-1, till the turning point of the Match happens when Steamboat in one of the best reversals I've seen pulls himself up and reverses the Tombstone Piledriver on Rude getting the PINFALL!

    If someone were to ask me what are my three favorite Iron Man style Matches over the years, it would be Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels Wrestlemania 12, Lesnar vs Angle from Smackdown 2003 and this Match. It's great to watch Rude and Steamboat in the latter stages of the Match with both guys tired, sweating like crazy making every move mean something that came off strong as I rewatched this. Rude thought he had Steamboat on the Ropes with less than one minute to go and him locking in the Sleeper hold. It's elementary in Wrestling and it's spot in the Match is great to see Steamboat having to get up and use every ounce of energy to somehow reverse it and get Rude's Shoulders on the Mat. Rude was shellshocked and he goes into panic mode after the pin hoping and praying that he can get a pinfall on Steamboat just to tie it somehow, but time ran out! Pure Wrestling at it's finest well done fellas.

    Nice dickbag move.

    So you went out of your way to ask if you could use a gif I created, then rather than wait until I could give you an answer or coming up with a different idea, you went ahead and used it anyhow without giving me credit. Had you used it without asking or used it without asking, but crediting me for the gif, it would have been far more respectful than asking and then not giving a shit about the answer. It's just a gif, but don't do this in life, HoHo.

    "THERE lays...your number one contender!!"

    Lex Luger vs Ricky Steamboat-WCW Great American Bash 1989

    When obsession can take over your mind. Can you say in 1989 the NWA was running wild brother and it's product was one of the best and if not better what WWE was producing at the time when it came to a in ring product. One of it's great moments entailed Lex Luger and Ricky Steamboat. After losing the NWA World Title to Ric Flair in their third boat in 89, Steamboat would still remain in the eyes on the people of the Company still in line as the number one contender for the World's Title above Luger. It irked Luger to the point that it culminated in Luger attacking Steamboat on the June 14 edition of Clash of the Champions, thus turning heel. All roads led to the GAB in 1989 where it would be a No-DQ for the newly won NWA United States Title on the line!

    Just as the Match seemly was ready to start Luger would get on the Microphone voicing his opinions that he wouldn't defend, the United States Title under such a stipulation and if Steamboat didn't play by his rules, he would get a U.S Title right now and he would leave the Match entirely. Luger was such a great heel, some guys are born to be one, and Luger is one of those guys I felt was a better heel than face or at least that's how I felt about him like that growing in the 90's. To me this such a follow me kid type of Match. Luger being the green Wrestler he was at the time, Steamboat knew how he can use Luger's skills and bring that out during the Match. Luger went to School out there, and you could see Luger getting better as the Match went on.

    The Match went from being Technical to being a Brawl, and it left me wanting more which is always a great thing. Two of the biggest moments have to be, one Luger going crazy with the Closelines and Steamboat doing his own version of the Flair flop trying to show Luger I'm not done yet! Another great that lead to the finish was Steamboat losing it and getting DQ'd. The feud started with Chair swinging and it was the Cherry on top to see that come back into play as Luger is the one leaving retaining his US Title hoping to God Steamboat doesn't find him!

    Monday Night Raw[March 30, 1998]
    YOU AIN'T GONNA MOLD..YOU AIN'T GOING TO BREAK ME

    24 hours after Austin had defeated Shawn Michaels for The WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 14, business picked up when Austin arrived on the Scene during Raw. By 98 WWE was getting to be pun intended Raw in a sense, and one of their most honest, chaotic, and raw characters was Austin. WWE saw probably a year before Austin had something in him that the fans wanted to see. Thank goodness WWE listened to us for once and let Austin..BE..Austin and all of is his greatest came from that.

    It's such a perfect moment for Raw, seeing the new Champion coming down to The Ring rocking the Winged Eagle Title and tossing it aside to be given the new WWE Championship. Austin's rebellious attitude now as Champion had not changed, as Austin said in the Segment if anything it went from a 9 to a 20 in one Segment. You go from fighting one of the greatest Champions in the Company's history, and now you're stunning the Boss of that such Company. "If you want Stone Cold to continuing doing things the hard way give me a hell yeah". Like Ross said the Night before "The Austin Era had begun".

Later today hopefully I get a new Women's Match in, but for sure next Match in this thread we get a debut of a WCW talent, and he'll be a Man that calls himself a Man of Thousands hold if you willllll.
    Thanks for this HoHo

    I have heard a lot about this match over the years, but had never actually seen it

    I guess it was another of those situations where a Japanese wrestler won a World Title on his home turf only to lose back before the Title returned to the states or lose it in the states

    Not sure why they didn't just have Martel beat Bockwinkle for the title instead of using Jumbo as a transition champion, but for all intends and purposes this was the end of Bockwinkle's dominance as the AWA World Champion

    Yeah politics in Wrestling can be the worst at times as much as I would of love to see Jumbo wrestle as Champion more, they didn't know how to stop Bockwinkle's reign so they thought easy scenario change the Champion for a few months then bring in the former or newest guy on a hot streak in the AWA to make as Champion. Oh if anyone has any Matches I should check out pm or put in the rep message to me and I would surely watch it.

    Monday Night Raw[April 13, 1998]
    YOU SAID YOU COULD BEAT ME..WITH ONE ARM TIED BEHIND YOUR BACK

    After weeks of Austin pissing off McMahon during a pivotal Raw show, Austin would poke McMahon to the point of getting in the Ring! I love how this slowly developed too, Austin talking to McMahon saying you don't want me as Champion, and you have a fantasy of being Champion and Austin is giving him this fantasy opportunity. What's cool too is during the Raw Show, with McMahon yeah nervous wanting to legit fight the baddest man on the planet. It's great to see Shane wanting to see his Father not get hurt, while Brisco and Patterson being the former Wrestlers saying yeah we've got your back Vince as they try to teach Vince how to escape the Stunner.

    Alot of people might be wondering what's the importance of this Show. From what I've gathered this was the Raw that WWE beat out WCW in the Monday Night War Ratings after what 84 weeks in a row getting their asses kicked. It started to turn the tide for WWE to take over the Wrestling world. Even Dude Love showing up confusing people to hell, then attacking Austin setting up the next WWE Championship was a nice touch to the Segment and Raw as a whole. I'm legit thinking about doing a Walkthrough of Monday Night from the night after Wrestlemania 13 and hit that Attitude Era and dive into it hard. I'm vulgar, a horny Toad, who better to do that project but me
