Looking to the BoD for inspiration

Going home pretty soon and I have a 17 hour flight.
I hate the viewing choices on international flights so I made the decision to watch some wrestling.

For all the years I have watched wrestling, I am coming up blank at what I want to watch, so I am looking to the BoD for inspiration.

I'd like a nice mix of workrate, entertaining crap, squash matches, classic WCW/ECW/ROH/TNA/WW(F)E, maybe some Japan/Mexico.

Whatever you recommend, I will look up and "acquire"

Thx in advance,


The Fuj

1 Climax!

  1. Wrestlemania IV. That'll kill some time.

  2. You gotta be fair to Flair!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Flair won in 92, unless you're trying to tell me something else.

    ReplyDelete
  4. CM Punk's over-the-top run in FIP. There are two best-of sets out there.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Man I'm so wrong. Apologies, I gotta not post on here while doing other things.

    Mass Transit. Over the Edge '99. "Dr. D" David Schultz chokes out John Stossel. Bootleg footage of Chris Benoit leaving his gate open...

  7. The Hogan Savage versus everyone in the 8 layer cage.
    Flair/Sting vs. Muta/Funk in the thunderdome (why would they climb up??!)
    Mankind/Rock halftime heat
    recent njpw stuff with Rainmaker or the Thriller jacket knee strike guy
    Some old Flair vs. Sting matches

    ReplyDelete
  8. You can never go wrong with Bryan Danielson in ROH. His match with Paul London in 2003 was amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Why did Savage go for the pin?!

    Sacrifice 2007. It might be the best top to bottom PPV TNA ever did.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Can't go wrong with some Raws from 97. Bonus points if you pick the ones leading up to the good PPVs.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Their last two shows in 2009 were great too. Angle/Nigel plus the Joe/Styles/Daniels three way and singles match.

    ReplyDelete
  13. A little caveat.


    I only have youtube at my disposal

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just pick a year, and type in:


    "(YEAR) Wrestling" in Youtube Search. Start with your birthyear for fun.


    Need to sleep? Pick anything pre-1980. ;) (Although there is some GREAT stuff there.)

    ReplyDelete
  15. If you can find all of the Wrestling Observer matches of the year, those are always a great choice.
    Also, the first TNA X cup, with Teddy Hart and Juvy tearing things up is always great.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Low Ki vs AJ Styles Zero One 2005. That match has it all.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Search for Saturday Night Main event you will find a ton.

    Also, Samoa Joe v Kobashi.

    And if you haven't done it yet, the last two Steve Austin podcasts are three hours of him and Flair chatting and it's pretty amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Survivor Series 96

    ReplyDelete
  19. Tanahashi vs. Suzuki from 10/8/12

    ReplyDelete
  20. Also the TNA channel has the AJ/Daniels/Joe 3-way, which legend has it is a ***** match.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Steiners vs Sting/Luger, Steiners vs Harts

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's been too long since I've seen that Teddy/Juvy match, which I happened to catch live. I think I know what I'll be checking out when I get off work.

    ReplyDelete
  23. WrestleMania X
    SummerSlam 91, 92, 94


    Those are a few off hand (if you're into older stuff) that have a good mix, and make for fun rewatches.


    Have a safe trip.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Survivor Series '95: The End of an (Awful) Era.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Another great Mexican match:
    Atlantis vs. Villano III, mask vs. mask
    I believe it was match of the year in 2000

    ReplyDelete
  26. Go to tvtropes.org and look up the Crowning Moments of Funny and Crowning Moments of Awesome pages. Both pages have links to a Professional Wrestling index page; there should be plenty of YouTube links there.

    ReplyDelete

  28. Fuj - WM 17. I watched it a few weeks ago after having only watched the original live viewing. Still the shit. Safe travels

    ReplyDelete
  29. Well, I am not very familiar with ROH - but there are some things I want to check out - I think they have compilations dedicated to the original Summer of Punk. And they put together a series of 6 or 7 DVDs from 2006 called the Milestone Series, which is supposed to be some of their best stuff - covering the ROH/CZW feud, appearances by Dragon Gate wrestlers from Japan, a lots of Samoa Joe & Bryan Danielson (who was ROH champ at the time). And while it's not part of the series, I've also heard good things about the Wargames-style match that blows off the ROH/CZW feud and setups the Homicide/Cornette feud.

    As I've said - I haven't seen this stuff, but it's what I'd look for if I was in your position.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Best Lucha match I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That match was awesome. One of the most emotional matches of all-time.

    ReplyDelete
  32. the 88 survivor series tag match is better

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think I liked 87 a bit more but 88 also had the double-turn between the Powers of Pain and Demolition. But really, you cant go wrong with either one.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Or the Scott Steiner math/Sacrifice promo on a continous loop.

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Danielson/Morishima feud from ROH is one of my all-time favorites. There's very little angle to it; the whole story is told through the escalating intensity of the matches as they move from a sporting rivalry for the title (Manhattan Mayhem 07) to the ultimate personal blood-feud (Final Battle 2008).

    ReplyDelete
  36. Have you seen this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCgxDJ-QnLE


    It's a comprehensive two hour compilation of Flair's early WWF run to the title. Completely awesome and one of the best fan made comps ever.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The final day of this year's G1 Climax tournament is a good 4 hours plus of stuff. Definitely lived up to the hype.

    ReplyDelete

    Boss Man v Barbarian, RR 91
    CanAm Connection v Bob Orton & don Muraco, WM3

    ReplyDelete

  41. SuperBrawl 1.



    Fun squashes, a few solid singles matches, and the best WCW tag team match ever. The full show itself plays thru very well

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm pretty sure that's the only Teddy Hart match that I've seen and it was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  43. You could always track down that 3 hour compilation of the Kiss My Ass Club + Buttshots that someone emailed about a while back.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you all. I will have a lot of choices for this flight.


    You guys are really the best.


    I love ths community.

    ReplyDelete
  45. No problem
    Also, look for the guy who posted all of the Prime Time Wrestling shows with Gorilla and Bobby but left out all the wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  46. That might be one of the stupidest things ever intentionally done in a match. Like Savage was just "Me forget how to wrestling" at the end of a rumble match.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Leaving the sandbox or going back to it? Shits bout to get real in that part of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  48. That was one of the only TNA PPV's I bought and I was not let down.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Leaving the sandbox for a quick RnR.


    Headed back to Cleveland for some Pussy, weed and alcohol (lol)


    I gotta come back though, but as it stands I only have 137 days left. This year has been flying by, thanks to the BoD.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm literally HEATED looking at all these other suggestions. The man gave you an answer, the best answer possible. That's it, end of discussion, G1 Climax 23~!

    Look, no bullshit.. The last 3 minutes of Nakamura vs. Ibushi are the BEST last 3 minutes of a match in the history of EVER. The powerbomb, knees to the Phoenix Splash, Nakamura punking Ibushi out something strong as if he blew a spot or something, then Ibushi WILL TAKE NO MORE OF THIS~!, he hits Nakamura with Palm Strikes straight out of the Miyagi play book... Show me Wax the Car, Show me Paint the Fence.. A couple Bomb-a-ye's.. a MOTHERFUCKING ONE COUNT~!

    How can a wrestling fan (a fan of "WRESTLING") ask for anything more than this instant classic of a main event~?!?!? I'm like, overcome with chills just typing this.

  51. Oh, and how dare I forget the subtle Thumb to the Throat after the palm strikes and lariat. That's probably my single favorite moment of the entire wrestling year.

  53. Welcome home, Fuj.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Steiners v. Sting/Luger. So good, so much to see in only 10 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's been twelve years since the greatest PPV of all time. Shit.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Mick Foley's Greatest Hits & Misses.


    See? 'Cos you hate Mick.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yea man, how fucking old does that make you feel?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I know. I remember that period like it was yesterday, though.

    The Best of Giant Gonzalez. Done and done.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I first saw Ultimo Guerrero at Victory ROad 2008.


    He was busting out some great power moves.
