  • Dan Spivey’s career was just one big flop, wasn’t it?

    • I like to think that if Spivey had been healthy Waylon Mercy would have worked out. It was ahead of its time, but damn if it didn't strike some chords.

      • I agree on that. Waylon Mercy as a character and promo was good. I think as an in ring performer he was missing something. But I did not know he was unhealthy,, so that could have been the contributing factor

        • I like his match with Luger at Wrestlewar '91. But that could just be Luger.

          • This Flair’s Last Match is a Crockett reunion of sorts. Can’t help but think will the Boogy Woogy man be there? Lol

              • image.jpg​happy 80th birthday to Ole Anderson. What a historical figure to still be alive. First ever NWA tag champion. Put cutting the ring in half on the map and I don’t think anyone has come along and done it as well. Great story teller on the mic, too.

                • Tully and Arn get all the attention as a team but there's a definite argument that Arn and Ole were even better as a tandem. Tremendous stuff. About to watch Ole fight Magnum for the US Title, should be a hell of a match. And right after that it's Flair vs. Garvin for the world title! What a hell of a time!

                  • I need to see that Ole/Magnum match. Man Ole was intense. And he rocked that handle bar manstache better than HHH

                    • It's fantastic, give it a watch!



                      And Magnum's mustache was almost Hogan levels of powerful. I am 100% bought into the idea that he could have been the Forum babyface in the nation after Hogan if he hadn't gotten in that accident.

                      • Went straight to the Ole/Magnum match. If I get time I’m going to watch the entire show. This was during the time TBS was making them put on more main event matches, and what a gem you found out of it.

                        That was a fun match from two intense wrestlers. The referee seemed kind of inactive but I don’t blame him, because I wouldn’t want to get between those two!

                        Ole really made Magnum work for his offense, constantly making him come up from underneath, cheating every chance he got. I think you really see where Ole’s influence on Arn ends and where Tully’s begins in that. Arn took from Ole the serious promo, working the body part, keeping the man in the corner, but from Tully he learned to bump and give a lot to his opponent.

                        Again, I like both styles. Ole really got heat on Magnum throughout and it really makes you want Magnum to come out of it. Felt like a struggle because in part with Ole, it was. He really made them struggle for their comeback. And between Magnum and Ole, what intensity!

                        With the other horsemen though, I like seeing how they bump around for the baby faces. Not that Ole didn’t at all here. I liked when Magnum landed those punches and dropped ole on his face. Quite a few times Magnum fought his way back up and Ole fought like hell because he sensed the danger of TA . Thanks for posting that.

                        • That's a tremendous way to differentiate them and something I hadn't put into words before, great analysis. I think there's so much to be said for both approaches. Ole has really been a revelation going through '85, I always thought I'd like him but I love him nearly as much as Arn. Please at least watch Garvin vs. Flair that comes right after, on commentary they said Garvin fought like a man possessed and I've never heard a more accurate call.

                          • I was listening to the ARN podcast and apparently there is an 8 man tag: Andersons & Doom vs Steiner Brothers & Road Warriors. For the life of me I cannot find any video of the match, but did find this. There were quite a few 8 man tags in 1990/1991 timeframe with the Road Warriors and Steiners on one side of the equation - I may rather run into a brick wall personally

                            • When I was a kid that 89 Starrcade round Robin tournament seemed cool. It saw LOD vs the Steiners too. In retrospect, they threw a lot of matches away that night. All of them colder than they should be. What a waste. If they were trying to live up to the ambition of the first Starrcades, maybe you’d have a hot tag title match between Steiners and LOD

                              • Ah, that was such a let down. Steiners and LOD did have a really good match in, I wanna say 96, but obviously could have been even better if it had happened properly earlier.
