TPWW Watches Classic Wrestling (World Championship Wrestling 1986 Discussion Thread) Thursdays at 9pm EST
 
So I had this idea in the 100,000 replies thread where we could do a weekly watch-a-long of a classic wrestling show. If enough people are into it and it picks up steam, Iíd like to do multiple shows from different territories, ideally staying within the same timeframe for comparison sake.

Iím doing a ďsoft startĒ this week to ease into things and because Iíll be too busy this evening to set anything up. (and also because Gertner is excited as fuck for this and I canít make him wait another week). Just gonna post the video. Next Thursday if weíve got enough people interested Iíd like to pick a time and do a synced up watch-a-long though I kinda wanna keep the chat in this thread for people who canít make the live stream.

Anyway, letís see how this goes. Enjoy our first show... From January 4th 1986... NWA World Championship Wrestling.

I will try to check out some of this episode soon hopefully!

Thinking Thursday nights at 9 EST/6 PST for the live watch-a-longs?

We could also go full-on time machine and do Saturdays at 6:05 EST/3:05 PST.

Suggestions welcome.

Good thread idea

3:03 After David Crockett asks Tully where Baby Doll is. Some guy in the audience: “Tully, I like your new Baby Dummy!”

You know that guy had the greatest “Hah! Got him!” smug smile on his face after that line.

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 02:09 PM

God I love David Crockett lol

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 02:16 PM

You can hear a female voice yelling for Thunderfoot. Against the fucking Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. Lest anyone think heel-loving contrarians are a new thing.

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 02:52 PM

THE discord?

We have a discord?

Why wasn’t I aware of this?

And what is a discord?

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 02:53 PM

Is this a thing I need to download on my magic phone? I’ll do it if it makes things easier for everyone.

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 02:56 PM

Well that seems like the best plan.

Fignuts 07-29-2021 02:59 PM

Damn. Might not be available for livestreams.

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 03:01 PM

I’m open to shift the livestream to the best possible time for the highest amount of people.

drave 07-29-2021 03:03 PM

Link the livestream from another device / window and keep live chat/discussion going in the Live Watch Along Thread

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 03:21 PM

Hell of a double dropkick by the R&R.

Thunderfoot Joel Deaton was a really good wrestler. Recently passed away. Great team with Bad Boy Billy Black

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 03:25 PM

Who a pro Baby Doll was

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 03:25 PM

I’ve watched ahead. Avoiding spoilers. But Thunderfoot is fascinating to me. Didn’t remember him at all.

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 03:46 PM

Thunderbolt and Billy Black wrestled on the first few Smokey Mountain shows in the tag tournament and wrestled a good amount in All Japan as "The Wild Bunch". They were really good!

Seanny One Ball 07-29-2021 03:49 PM

I had a similar thread idea a while ago but I didn’t think it would be feasible due to my work hours. I should manage it when I’m off though.

Good stuff.

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 03:52 PM

Harley seemed to look a lot in the WWF 5-6 months later

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 04:02 PM

In hindsight, the king gimmick made him feel like an old man going through dementia as opposed to an old man who, while unassuming when he speaks, could stretch you into a pretzel.

#1-norm-fan 07-29-2021 04:06 PM

By the way, that grizzled old fuck was younger here than AJ Styles is today.

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 04:08 PM

It's crazy how different people age nowadays

drave 07-29-2021 05:15 PM

Miniak maybe

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 07:41 PM

Omg those chops by Garvin

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 07:49 PM

There's some tags out there with Wahoo and Ronnie on the same team just chopping the living shit out of jobbers

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 08:28 PM

Tremendous promos all around

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 09:23 PM

haha Cornette is so great

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 09:26 PM

Magnum vs Barbarian. This should be good. LOVE Barbarian.

Bad News Gertner 07-29-2021 10:49 PM

Loved the Main Event. Pretty great show

Fignuts 07-30-2021 01:05 AM

Nice. Tony Schiavone with the stache.

lol thunderfoot. Sounds like a name for a native American wrestler but instead it's this dude in a red gimp suit.

You'd think at some point Robert Gibson would get tired of his tag partner constantly getting the shit kicked out of him.

Nice finish.

Wonder what Tony, JJ, and Tully talked about during that match. Probably Babydoll's tits.

lol they're still there. Are they just gonna hang out for the whole show?

Ok that recap segment was good.

Even Harley Race's grunts sound mean.

Love Ivan Koloff

I don't like Bill tabs odds.

Great Dusty promo

Yeeeeeeaaaah RUBBISH RONNIE GARBAGE

Ooooooooo that slap was tasty.

lol just slapping the shit out of him.

Chest rake I love it.

Oh geez wedgied the fuck out of him.

ahaha he just punched him in the face for the finish.

Wwe needs to bring fans into their backstage interviews to randomly shout things.

Oh god these poor sons of bitches facing the road warriors.

Oh nevermind, it was like 4 seconds.

Bad News Gertner 07-30-2021 01:51 AM

I was all geared up to see the Warriors paralyze someone and it never happened sadly.

Fignuts 07-30-2021 02:02 AM

"I hear he wears earplugs when he eats rice Krispies so he doesn't hear the snap crackle pop!" Jesus christ lol

Ragin bull seems good. He really hates this guy's inner thigh.

Good selling from Clark

lol big WA TAAAA karate strike from this chubby redneck.

Spends the whole match working the leg, and finishes with a flying elbow strike wtf

Ric Flair being awesome

Kent glover looking way out of his depth.

Arn Anderson victorious over trailer trash kawada.

lol Flair

Jimmy Valiants persona is literally just homeless Crack head.

Yeah, cornette. So young here.

"He used to be horrible, now he's just pitiful"

"Watching this you can see that Condrey is a very......good .....wrestler" Riveting commentary, Crockett.

Oh god that was a legit brainbuster

"Thpathm"

Babydoll's stepford wives smile is kind of creepy.

Magnum vs Barbarian should be fun.

Feel like magnum is getting too much on barbarian. Shine is lasting a bit too long.

Ok barbarian in control now.

lol harley

Ah, shmoz ending.

Holy shit did hawk just take off his choker by flexing his roidy neck muscles?

Jimmy valiant again. Meth is a hell of a drug.

I know Sam Houston. None of the other guys.

lol almost took out his own partner with that Bulldog.

Weird that they ended with that match instead of magnum vs barbarian

Fun show Ronnie Garvin was the highlight for me

Bad News Gertner 07-30-2021 09:35 AM

WWF used to do that shit too where they'd air a match of low card guys at the end of their show after a huge match or angle.

Bad News Gertner 07-30-2021 03:07 PM

Like Fignuts said, Ronnie Garvin smacking that jobber around is the highlight of the show

Seanny One Ball 08-01-2021 02:52 AM
