Anyone watching the A&E doc series? I am really loving them.

I was a huge fan thanks to my dad back in the days, we used to go to a lot of the events locally and in Washington State.

The A&E documentary series have been excellent so far.

The Biography's have been fantastic, who would of thought that Mick Foley is the most normal person out of all of them so far. Who is on this Sunday? I haven't seen it yet.

Last week, the episode was on the Ultimate Warrior. I didn't watch it, but the Dark side of the Ring for the same week was also on Ultimate Warrior

Last Week was Mick Foley, the week before was the Warrior and damn that one was sad. So weird that the Mick has been the most normal person I have seen out of all of them so far.

Mick is a normal dude in general...
The Austin one is pretty normal too.

Probably the best one out of all of these documentaries from A&E

but best quote/line

"On a scale of 1-10, as a wrestler, Goldberg was a zero."

I had no clue Goldberg was so bad but it makes sense. I was a big fan of the Bret Hart doc, man it hit me in the feels.

Goldberg is Vince's typical wrestler wet dream.

Big, muscular, and white.

Goldberg was awful, but that was good in a way. Like you never knew what was going to happen in a Goldberg match... well you knew, but things always looked so chaotic and dangerous.

Someone reminded me of that aspect recently but dammit I can't remember who it was

I remember tuning into Monday Nitro just to see when Goldberg would lose and then flipping back to WWF for the Attitude Era storylines.

Watching some of these documentaries sent me down a long path of nostalgic YouTube videos. God damn the attitude era was so good. I haven't really watched wrestling lately but does the crowd even come close to how nuts they went when Stone Cold would come out unexpectedly? I think the time he came out during The Rock vs Mankind and got the title win for Mankind was the biggest pop I ever heard.

Watch AEW. It's like the best of that era of wrestling combined with the best of today's wrestling. You'll see some familiar faces and hear familiar voices too. It's run by a hardcore fan who happens to be the son of a billionaire, so putting that money to good use lol

Their last PPV was the first show with a big crowd, and they were INSANE for the start and end of that show. The middle dropped a bit after a bad match, but when things were good, it was really loud, and it added a lot. And it wasn't even THAT many people!

highly recommend this documentary.
I felt genuinely disgusted after watching this, I actually believe that if it wasn't for certain people around her, she might very well still be alive.

I forgot to come here and rave about this match, Utami Hayashishita vs Syuri from June 12



I watched it live on PPV, they had English commentary for the first time and it was good.

This match.

It was one of those all time greats that you'll remember forever. Just the way it was booked, the build to the finish, and the finish itself. It's not the kind of wrestling that is a bunch of super athletic flips and "spots", just brutal, hard hitting strong style wrestling. Utami's run as champion has had matches similar to this, wars of attrition where she barely survives just by pure strength, but eventually catches her opponents in a BT Bomb and it's all over. Syuri is a legit MMA fighter, former Pancrase and K1 champion, former UFC fighter, and she kicked the SHIT out of Utami. They both beat the hell out of each other.

Anyway, check it out, it's not on PPV anymore but it's up on Stardom World for 900 Yen per month. It's worth that price for sure.

Dave Meltzer gave it 5.5 stars, the highest rating he's ever given a women's match, and the first 5 star since 1996. I am not an expert and I haven't watched everything, but when I was watching this I was losing my mind and thought it was the best women's match I'd seen. I had a similar feeling to watching Omega vs Okada, or Omega & Hangman vs Young Bucks... Not the same kind of match, just a similar feeling where you realize there's nothing better than pro wrestling at certain times. This is one of those times!

The rest of the show was really good too, the end of one of them put me in so much shock I could barely get into the next match and had to watch it over again later.
