Dusty Rhodes, Magnum T.A., and Jerry “The King” Lawler Vs. Ole Anderson, Arn Anderson, and Tully Blanchard (w/ Baby Doll)
Memphis Wrestling - November 18th, 1985
For the length that this match was, it was still incredibly legendary. That being said, if it was any longer, all 6 men involved might have had much shorter careers. The feud between Dusty Rhodes, Magnum T.A., and Jerry “The King” Lawler against the Andersons and Tully Blanchard was brutal by all accounts, with both teams gaining wins in tag team matches and singles competition. When the 6 finally came together to face off, the crowd was electric, watching 6 of wrestling’s greatest legends square off. This is a quick one, but it’s perhaps the most exciting match from 1985 that wasn’t the main event of WrestleMania.
No. How in any fuck would it be racist?
The Diamonds In The Rough 
Former ECW star and expert on the microphone, Simon Diamond, brought his brand of entertainment to TNA. Diamond sought out David Young and Elix Skipper, claiming that both men had a lot more to offer than they had been given the ability to on TNA programming. Despite this, The Diamonds In The Rough had a depressing track record, although they did score a victory over Raven in the House Of Fun match that he was known for. Sadly, their ‘reign’ lasted for less than 2 years, as Young and Skipper were released from TNA in February of 2007.

Prince Devitt Vs. Ricochet
RPW Uprising - October 19th, 2013
I’ve been searching for a full video of this match for a while now, but can’t seem to find one. Instead, here’s this highlight video from the match between Ricochet and Prince Devitt. Both men could easily be called the highlight reel of the indies, but truthfully, it’s hard to say who the best man is. Both Devitt and Ricochet have their own style in the ring, and both men had to adapt their style to perform on one another’s level, so seeing these two face off was quite an exciting encounter.
Christopher Nowinski pins Bubba Ray Dudley
WWE Bad Blood - June 15th, 2003
For the first time in Dudleyville history, D-Von began second guessing his brother, Bubba Ray. Prior to the Bad Blood event, Teddy Long, Christopher Nowinski, and Rodney Mack pulled D-Von Dudley aside to ask why he was being held back and discriminated against by Bubba Ray. When D-Von acted out against it, Nowinski asked why it was D-Von who was always told to get the tables. D-Von didn’t have a response for it, and walked away from his opponents for the night.
During the match, D-Von and Bubba Ray delivered their patented “Wazzap Drop”, followed by a celebration where Bubba gave D-Von a shove and yelled “D-Von!!! Get the tables!!!” In the past, this was par for the course as the pair LOVED to put their opponents through tables. However, when D-Von went to exit the ring, he was met with Teddy Long, who gave him a questionable look. D-Von stopped in his tracks, seemingly letting the thought sink in, while Nowinski clocked Bubba Ray with his face guard to secure the victory.
Big John Studd 
Big John Studd was an absolute mountain of a man. At 6’10” and over 350 pounds, Studd was a notable member of the WWF roster from the 1970’s through the late 1980’s. In 1972, Studd performed as Chuck O’Connor, mostly gaining wins over jobbers until leaving the WWF to try his luck in other promotions. In 1976, he returned to the WWF as Executioner #2 and won the WWF Tag Team Championship along with his teammate, the masked Killer Kowalski, who trained Studd to be a wrestler!
In 1982, Studd had yet another run in the WWF, this time with the managerial services of “Classy” Freddie Blassie. He would come to the ring with a stretcher, the gimmick being that he would beat his opponents so badly that that’s the only way they would leave. Studd was eventually involved in a feud with Andre The Giant, who was the only man to ever successfully body slam Studd to the canvas. Once, he did so with enough force that the ring actually broke!
In 1984, he had a feud with Hulk Hogan for the WWF Championship, but was never successful in defeating him. While this was going on, Studd was still feuding with Andre, and by this point he was referring to himself as “The True Giant of Wrestling”. When Big John was added to the Bobby Heenan Family, the feud between Andre and Studd only intensified, and the two faced off at WrestleMania I. The stipulation of the match was that Andre had a certain time limit to body slam Studd or he’d have to leave wrestling. Andre won the match, under protest, prompting Studd to begin teaming with fellow giant King Kong Bundy. Andre started teaming with all the top dogs in the WWF, but Studd was relentless in keeping on him and never letting down. The feud finally ended in 1986, when Studd and Bundy defeated The Machines (without Andre in the match). Studd’s claim that Andre could have been any of the masked competitors was all he needed to claim a victory over the giant.
Meeting Wrestlers: Chris Masters 
In my opinion, 2006 was just as ridiculous a year for the WWE as 1998 was, and one of the key characters of that year was “The Masterpiece” Chris Masters. I always got a kick out of the Masterlock Challenge segments, but as a dude, Masters never forgot where he came from and was always as chill and polite a guy as you could ask for. I’d met him several times at OVW prior to this day, but when we saw each other, he smiled big at me. I remember him saying something along the lines of “You’ve been there since I first started here. I hope I didn’t suck too bad once I made it!”
We had a huge convention in town from Charlotte, North Carolina, and when someone says they’re from Charlotte, I always say “That’s Flair country!” Some people have no idea what I mean, but the majority get excited and want to tell me a story about their encounter with Flair. I said this to one guy and he replied with a great story:
Me and my buddy decided one day to go to the beach and play some volleyball. This was about 1987, maybe 88 or 89. Either way, we had a cooler set out that was huge and took three of us to carry and we had plenty of beer, ‘cause you could still drink back then. We set up a volleyball net and started playing and people would come up to join for a little bit, then leave when they got bored. It was a good day.
We got a little tuckered out and saw this big, muscular, tan, blonde-haired man walking past us and I said “Holy God, that’s Ric Flair!” He looked back and smirked at me then kept going toward the ocean. He had a friend with him, just as big but he looked maybe Oriental. (I asked if it was Ricky Steamboat, he said it was.) Anyway, they played around in the ocean for a little bit and you could see they were looking for chicks, so when they finally started messing with them, Ricky was the coy one while Flair kept untying the busty one’s top!
They got out of the ocean and dried off and here come Flair and Ricky and they’re walking over to ‘em. Flair keeps untying the girl’s top and they start play fighting, Ricky’s laying with the other girl, kissing her, and the busty one takes off. Her hair’s floating in the wind behind her while she runs and Flair’s tailing her until he reaches out and grabs her by the hair, jerking her head back and laying her flat out! Flair looks down at her and doesn’t hesitate to laugh his ass off. She gets up, pissed off, smacking at his chest, and he apologizes, says he won’t do it again, he didn’t mean to hurt her. She can’t be mad at him, you know, so she hugs him, and that son of a bitch unties her top and laughs like a 7 year old.
Dirtiest player in the game. Legitimately one of the best stories I’ve ever heard. The guy went on to say that they supplied Steamboat and Flair with beers and they snuck them into a show the next night. I thought that was amazing.
WWF World Tag Team Championships:
Edge & Christian (Champions) Vs. Too Cool
WWF Raw Is War - May 29th, 2000
On a night where Kid Rock was performing, Edge and Christian had a title defense against Too Cool, but not before they irritated Kid Rock’s band mate, Joe C, backstage. During the course of the match, Joe C got his payback, and it led to a huge moment for Too Cool and one of the biggest ovations of 2000.
Alicia Fox is like the anti-Kelly Kelly.
Both were literally picked out of a magazine, called, and hired.
Fox, however, seems to have a much larger passion for the business than Kelly did. She’s a good heel (or good in her role) and really a decent wrestler. She seems like she works hard and constantly tries to improve.
I really can’t argue with any of this. Alicia Fox, to this day, is the one lady wrestler who I can say is the most underrated on the roster.
I don’t think there’s any arguing with this. Good call, ihavetillfiveref.
Jim Ross recalls a time when Vince McMahon sharted!
Jim Ross is a guy who can say absolutely anything and it would be instantly better, so when he tells a story about the WWE Chairman sharting, you know it’s gold. Plus, it’s J.R. saying “sharted”, and he says “bro” at one point!
The Hurricane and Lance Storm 
I honestly believe that Lance Storm had the perfect name for so many tag team gimmicks.
Lance Storm and The Hurricane: The Natural Disasters (I know)
Lance Storm and Mr. Perfect: The Perfect Storm
Lance Storm and Lance Cade: Lance-A-Lot (you know, two Lance’s?)
Lance Storm and Sgt. Slaughter: The StormTroopers
Lance Storm and D’Lo Brown: …Lance Storm and D’Lo Brown
Okay, that fizzled out quickly.
I think Emma in general is annoying.
