The whole list reads like it has been compiled solely by 7-8 chronically obese, sweaty 49 year old virgins who use sock puppet accounts with female names and believe themselves to be "pro-wrestle connoisseurs" who stroke their fluffy chins and select the finest grapplers of a bygone age like a sommelier choosing vintage wines.

Only person that deserves to be there is Bret, maybe the fat green gook i guess

Maybe Macho Meme too if the majority of his matches werent shitty MUH TOP ROPE AXEHANDLE AND MORE MUH AXE HANDLES

What a shitty list, where the fuck is dynamite kid

Basically. These guys are really big on guys that wrestled in Japan and old 70s-80s dudes. Also seem to have no interest in the sports entertainment part, more just about guys being as crisp as possible and selling well.

So.... how the fuck is Ric Flair there then?

Dont even bother with that 18+ shit

Loller was a perrennial outlaw shitter that won over 100 '''''titles''''' in a shitty ring that used garden hoses instead of ropes half of the time

Not even meming, look it up

>>1752440
Adults.
>>
>>1752073
> sell well
The art of selling is the ability to receive of a move and make it look believable and like it hurt
Flair did none of this and turned all his '''''matches''''' into a pathetic slapstick caricature, he was the carnie laurel and hardy with a tenth of the talent
>>
>>1752447
>perrennial outlaw shitter

You do realize the Memphis territory was one of the hottest & highest drawing of the 1970s, when Lawler was on top.

Or are you talking about the USWA days in the 90s when it all went to shit?

Either way, Lawler was a HUGE draw in the 70's & 80's but you wouldn't know that because you weren't even born yet.
>>
>>1752471
This desu, Lawler won more money than Cena if you take inflation into account.

In fact you made more money in the territories, the heavy part was the travel, but you didnt break your body as fast because you didnt kill yourself doing flippy shit.

The manchildrens these days that are part of WWE roster are marks that will work for Vince even if he paid them with his dick only to be part of the promotion, they were mark kids that drank the WWF (at the time) kool aid
>>
>>1752471
I was born in 86, who gives a fuck about what happened before then
99.9 per cent of wrestling was boring af before guys like the Dynamite Kid came along and changed the ringwork

And trust me, ive tried watching old outlaw shit

Wrestling was seen as legit, it build momentum and drama before the good moves started to hit in the match, you saw an story in the ring, performers sold you that they were fighting in the ring.

Dynamite Kid was seen as this crazy Michael Jordan guy that could do amazing things in the ring because he was that good.

The Mcmahon vision of Rock'n Wrestling shat on everyone as he exposed the business with his cartoony shit, then people stopped to like wreslting because it was exposed as "fake".

The popularity of Vince WWF was because kids liked iits cartoon style and parents were "casuals" that fell into the hype and flash of the subpar product, compared to the territories days.

The NWA era was miles better on the ring product that WWF, if Hogan stayed on the AWA he would of been great imagine him feuding with an "old final boss real wrestler vet" Nick Bockwinkel would been miles better than Hogans feud with King Kong Bundy.

> The Mcmahon vision of Rock'n Wrestling shat on everyone as he exposed the business with his cartoony shit, then people stopped to like wreslting because it was exposed as "fake".

So how do you explain Ric Flair and why is he still held in high regard to old territory guys

His cartoony '''''matches''''' and clownish ''''''''''selling''''''''' exposed the business way before any drug trial or documentary did

Watch Ric Flair vs Jumbo Tsuruta, or Flair vs Terry Funk, Flair vs Steamboat, Flair vs Wahoo Mcdaniel.

Also Flair before the plane crash was better, so he is respected becuase he was great, even in the 90's WCW he was so over in the Carolinas, Atlanta, etc.
>>
>>1752661

Im interested as an history of something that is part of the "sports culture".

Im also have knowledge about the pre 60's boxing, as i consider the peak of the sports the early 30's to mid 50's, then with the amateur game declinning and the old masters dying the sport became more about combination punching and earmuffs defense.

They were doing utter shit and sold 40 dollars of merch in a year before Hogan came along and saved their company

>>1752728
Only FedoRamen gets this triggered when anybody uses that name, way to tank any chance of you being taken seriously.
>>
>>1752728

Again you are sawing that Flair didnt draw but arround that time the WWF damaga was done, also speaking of actual ringwork the Flair vs Steamboat series were a better product, wich cant be denied by saying Ric wasnt a good in ring worker.

Also imho Bockwinkel was better than Flair.
>>
>>1745450
Take out the DVDVR try-hard contrarian picks like Regal, Finlay and Rhodes and you've got one hell of a list.
