Pro Wrestling Matches I Enjoy

PostPosted by rich0 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 5:01 pm

As a lot of you may know, I'm not a big fan of either the WWE or TNA at the moment but I am still a big pro wrestling fan. I have been watching a lot of interesting stuff online for the past 2 - 3 years that is outside of the 'big two' and what is probably the most well known indy, ROH. I thought I'd make a thread to highlight some of the more easily disposable matches to hopefully broaden your horizons as a wrestling fan. Also just for my own selfish amusement. Some of it will be modern, some quite old, some so old you can barely see what's going on.

Just to clarify, I'm not going for what I consider the best wrestling matches of all time. Not your Kobashi/Misawa's or Hart/Bulldog's, I'm going for more unknown stuff that will be easy and quick to watch (and hopefully very entertaining). I'll try to keep it as versatile as possible and keep it updated pretty regularly.

Going to start off with Billy Torontos (Can) vs. Kurt Heinz (UK) from World Of Sport in what I believe to be the 1970s. It's a comedy match and takes a little while to get to the very clever spots, but it's wonderfully timed and very entertaining, also a bit surreal. The uploader has suggested it's a 'slapstick' match and I can't disagree:

I downloaded an assload of World of Sport shows last year when my fascination with Johnny Saint began but unfortunately they were taken from me [along with the rest of my wrestling] by my ex-girlfriend so hoping to see a few gems from that era here.

Sticking with the World Of Sport/Japan theme. This is somewhat of a classic between two revolutionary wrestlers. Jim Breaks who was for a long time considered the top heel in the lighter weight classes for World Of Sport and the original, mother fucking, Tiger Mask!

World Of Sport/Kung Fu/King's Road






And just because I was watching it earlier. The Genius of Catweazle...
