+ So much love for this. If you don’t get the reference, in Chris Masters’ debut match on Raw, he delivered a Polish Hammer to Stevie Richards’ face and broke his nose.

Christopher Daniels [2010]
Very few pro wrestlers can create the atmosphere that Christopher Daniels does. Whether there are thousands or dozens in attendance, Daniels always gives a performance worthy of million, and has never been made light of in the ring. With sincere ability, he’s created a following that has been well-earned, wrestling in every major company worth mentioning within the last 15 years.

WWE Championship:
The Big Show Vs. Brock Lesnar (champion)
WWE SmackDown - June 12th, 2003

When Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE, it seemed unclear what the path was that the bookers would take. Originally, the WWE Universe believed that a feud between Lesnar and Mark Henry would ensue, but instead, The Big Show stepped up to the plate. This match is from over 10 years ago, when the two had their original feud and it shows exactly why both men are a force to be reckoned with.

This is also the match that the phrase “Trainers, EMT’s, referees down.” (said by Michael Cole) was uttered, that appears in the WWE’s “Don’t Try This At Home” ads on their DVD and Blu-Ray releases.

Exif Beth Phoenix [2008]
It’s a typical phrase to coin when you talk about Beth, but truly, the rise of the Phoenix is quite possibly the most impressive start-to-finish of any WWE Diva in history. Beth didn’t win a WWE Women’s Championship based on the fact that she was the sexiest, had the best photo sets, or could sell the most t-shirts. Beth Phoenix was the WWE Women’s Champion and the WWE Divas Champion simply because she was the best woman in the WWE. She did falter at times, losing to smaller and less powerful Divas, but she never once walked away looking like a loser, it was simply a case of the other wrestler being better for 3 seconds. When the rematch occurred, Beth always walked away with her head held high, but not as high as her many championships.

+ "Dirty" Dutch Mantell and Doomsday (Kane) [1994]
It’s no secret that Zeb Colter has a rich history in professional wrestling as “Dirty” Dutch Mantell, but what’s crazy is just how many top superstars he managed in his time. This photo was taken in Puerto Rico, where even there, those pants being pulled up that high was considered atrocious.

+ Hunter Hearst-Helmsley [1995]
1995 was a banner year for the WWE’s up-and-coming talent. There were several debuts of young superstars, all with different gimmicks and different backgrounds. One thing that all of them had in common was that they were all memorable, but perhaps none more so than the aristocratic Hunter Hearst-Helmsley. The WWE audiences quickly learned that this guy was their enemy, but not just because he had more money and was more of a show-off than any of them were able to be, but also because he had no problem taking out some of their favorite superstars, and doing it with a smile on his face. Little did they know that of all the superstars to debut that year, the most successful would be the man who came to be known as the Degenerate, the Cerebral Assassin, the Game, Triple H.

Fit Finlay Vs. El Dandy
WCW Saturday Night - February 20th, 1999

There’s something about WCW Saturday Night that makes it look like it exclusively took place in like, 1993. Nevertheless, El Dandy was a luchador who came into WCW during their explosion of Cruiserweights. Facing off against Finlay, you would think El Dandy had some tricks that Finlay wasn’t used to, but never one to be a step behind, Finlay knew better than to doubt El Dandy.

What a breathtaking beauty the Glamazon was.

In my opinion, the finest representation of a lady wrestler if I’ve ever seen one.

Dustin Rhodes and Steve Austin backstage at Starrcade [1993]

Dustin farts and imitates Dusty Rhodes, then “Stunning” Steve speaks as the U.S. Champion. Candid video, not at all official.

Changed the avatar. YAAAAH!

+ TNA Knockouts Champion Gail Kim [2013]
Honestly, I have never seen more attractive ring attire in my life. The best part is, that Gail doesn’t need to rely on being sexy to be entertaining. She’s an incredible athlete who just happens to be highly attractive on top of that.

WCW during the year 2000 was a weird, weird company…

It’s funny because, about a year earlier, I actually got into pro wrestling as a fan and became quite passionate about it not long after. If there was any way to become a fan, I cannot tell you about one more bizarre than tuning into Nitro and seeing this kind of crazy content onscreen.

For those who don’t know, at one point, Chris Kanyon had a gimmick of a Diamond Dallas Page impersonator named Positively Kanyon. Basically, the dude did everything from trying to talk like DDP to parading around the book that DDP authored entitled “Positively Page.” Clever, right?

However, easily the most noteworthy part of Positively Kanyon was the excessive use of the Kanyon Cutter. When I say “excessive,” though, it is probably the biggest understatement that could be made. Some of the most noteworthy clips floating around the Internet are compiled in the clip above. Believe me when I tell you that him Kanyon Cutting people like backstage hands and even Judy Bagwell, the mother of Buff Bagwell, made for some strange-ass television. Almost every time, he did not fail to perform the diamond taunt before taking off from the scene. Of course, not without leaving fans with a, “BANG!”

And it was hilarious. My favorite of the bits starts at 3:06.

WCW was fucking stupid but, in my mind, Positively Kanyon deserves to be up there with DDP Booker T, and Lance Storm as reasons to watch even a little bit of WWE’s then-fleeting competition.

There are more than plenty of reasons to like Kanyon, but this video is definitely one of them. Especially how WCW thought that doing a backstage video of Shane Douglas and Kanyon putting together a match (in character?) would make for good TV.
