For some reason, trying to get onto TV.com has been a hassle. I can thank Wounds for giving me the proxy and port number to access this site again. I'll have to call with my local Internet provider soon.
For the time being:
1) I'm not dead .
2) I got a C+ in my final college exam. All I need is a letter guaranteeing that I earned my Associate Degree.
3) I will be posting another ROH or Japanese wrestling match sometime soon. Maybe from Pro Wrestling NOAH, since that's the next promotion I wanna check out.
Jyushin "Thunder" Liger, Ultimo Dragon, Great Muta. All 3 of these guys, I have seen over the years when they made rare to normal appearances in WCW.
THIS guy is right now, among my favorite Cruiserweights, Light Heavyweights, Junior Heavyweights and X-Division alumni (if he was around that weight cl@$$). DAMN!!!!!!!
Now I understand, a little bit, on why Telvistonic loves this guy to death. Thank YOU........cause I have GOT to find some of his matches in the near future. Hopefully, because college is DRIVING ME NUTS HERE.
Hope you all enjoy this.
I am not lying about this title. Click here to see the match I'm talking about.
This took place 7 years ago, sanctioned by a new deceased wrestling promotion called AJWPW (All Japan Women's Pro Wrestling). Now after watching this, I liked it for sure. Simply because.........no other women's division in North America has, and will never top what these 6 women went through here.
You all know me. When it comes to women's wrestling (if you wanna call it that) in the WWE, I am very strict on them. The sarcastic questions of the day: why won't the WWE hire women who can actually wrestle or can put on matches like this? Sarcastic answer: who cares about women wrestling? All perverted males wanna see is Ts and As. Logical answer, to say the very least.
I'll let you all enjoy the match and of course, send me the feedback.
P.S: Thank Telvisnotic too. She had a women's match that went straight to this site. If not for her, I might not have found this match.
Over the past year or so, hating on John Cena has turned from being normal.........to being what Qfrodi called it, a phase. Just like Nike. Just like Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc. You name it, Cena hating is becoming that.
So now, whenever someone says that they like Cena, OH BOY. The haters get their pitch forks ready and go "French Revolution" on them. Because of that, I think it's safe to label Cena haters under the following: Posers, Normal and Abnormal.
Posers: People that hate John Cena so much for no reason or they see other people do it and think, "Wow, cool. I wanna be a Cena hater too." Like I said, fans love Cena. Fans hate Cena. Fans, just love to hate him. They're even people who hate him so much that they can't stop talking about him, or they drag his name into an argument when he doesn't even fit into the argument. I.E: Randy Orton being a jerk. Tons of Cena haters, mostly Orton fans, would jump me for this. Uh, am I not the only here that think these people have a secret crush on Cena? Seriously, the guy gets more love than X-Pac.
Normal: These haters always give legitimate reasons why they don't like John Cena. Things such as no charisma, mic skills are terrible, he cannot wrestle (mostly this). Understandable enough. A lot of you know why I became a Cena hater. Don't remember? Chris Benoit, a submission specialist, tapping out to the STFU and the Cena lovers cheer for that digusting miscarriage of justice. That officially pissed me off. That also showed that Vince is not willing, or has the balls to turn Cena heel.
Abnormal: The worst set of Cena haters to come across. They will say things like Cena should die a slow, agonsing, painful death, burnt beyond recognition, injured to the point where he has to take substance through a straw, over the most ridiculous things ever. One main reason? He can't wrestle. Yes, we know he cannot wrestle to save his life, but to say things like that is downright cruel. He is a human being after all.
Hopefully all of this hatred for the guy dies off soon. But from the looks of things I have seen:
That will never happen. Seriously, this Cena hating crap should stop. And this is coming from someone who doesn't like him......HIS CHARACTER. There was a pic of Ashley's Playboy.....only it had Cena's face instead of Ashley. That drew the last straw for me.
What's the point of booing Cena now anyways? It makes no sense. It's not like Vince is gonna turn him heel. So live with it, or watch TNA. Oh wait, they've been crap. Watch the indies then. That's all I have to say.
Right below are 20 of my favorite Cruiserweights from WCW, Light Heavyweights from WWF, Junior Heavyweights from New Japan Pro Wrestling and X-Division alumni from TNA.
20. Jeff Hardy - a former Light Heavyweight champion of the WWF in his own right. Honestly, I like the Hardy Boys. And for those, who are probably shocked with me placing Jeff so low down, look below and you'll see more reasons why.
19. La Parka - man was he funny to watch. Also known as the "chairman" of World Championship Wrestling. Honestly, I never saw a lot of his wrestling matches. And his attire. Look at it. Cool, isn't it?
18. Pyschosis - great mask, never really seen him do a lot of high-flying moves. And oh yeah, top rope legdrop of doom Beat that, Hogan . And WCW removed his mask. What were they thinking?
17. Brian Kendrick - it's a good thing I saw a battle royal in TNA featuring the X-Division. 2005, I think the year was. Anyways, seeing Brian in TNA at that time was shocking to say the very least. It also showed me how he can perform in multi-wrestler environments. He's another great Cruiserweight/X-Division alumni, which the WWE turned into a big laughing stock in 2003. Honestly, can't they come up with something better for their talent?
16. Sonjay Dutt - Saw him once in that same battle royal with Kendrick. He is phenomenal as well. It's strange how TNA did not make him X-Division champion sooner rather than later. And from what I heard, they plan on making him a Razor Ramon impersonator. I sure as hell hope they do NOT do this.
15. Gregory Helms - the longest reigning Cruiserweight champion in history..........because he had no competition, which is pretty sad when you look at it. One thing I like about him is his Shining Wizard. If I knew more about him in WCW, and I could care less about that company back then because it was down in the dumps anyways in 2001, his Vertebreaker would've won me over. Seriously, they need more guys for this division. Am I right or am I right?
14. Paul London - dubbed as one of the best high flyers in North America today (or was it the world, I can't remember). A lot of you know most of his finishers and favorite moves to pull off were the 450 Splash and the Shooting Star Press. Two of my favorite moves........banned by the WWE, leaving poor London without a proper finisher. Thanks for nothing, Vince.
13. Juventud Guerrera - what can I say? I'm a sucker for wrestlers in masks. Put him in a match with Rey Mysterio and you had one hell of a match on your hands. ECW did that (I believe), WCW did that countless times. Why couldn't the WWE do that? Oh yeah, Vince's big man fetish. Anyways, gotta love his 450 Splash. And I HATED it when he had to take his mask off too.
12. Chavo Guerrero - he was somewhat of a pyscho in WCW and had a heated feud with a little someone here who made it to the top 10 (No.5 at that). Trust me, I liked that character (had me looking at him in the weirdest way as a 12 year old), but thank God I found out that wrestling was fake.......and staged. P.S: WCW's Chavo > WWE's Chavo, PERIOD.
11. Taka Michinoku - Jim Ross said it best: "if the WWF was based on talent alone, he would be the WWF Champion." Can't deny that.......and if ya do, DIE!!!!!!!! Kidding . Seriously, he was awesome to watch. The first time I saw him was 1997, when he wrestled someone called the Great Sasuke. Great match between the 2. It's just a shame that the WWE, once again, buried their best talent. Oye.
10. A.J $tyles - I haven't seen a lot of this guy actually (and sorry for the small image, since TV.com is rather strict when it comes to the word $tyle, gimme a break here). ANYWAYS, back to A.J. From most of the matches I've seen with him, he's pretty good. Just not good enough to make it to the top 5. He really needs a new finisher, cause that $tyles Clash looks just as painless as Cena's F-U. Other than that, he's pretty good.
09. Billy Kidman - like I said in my old blog, all he needed was a white vest and 3/4 jean pants. I'm glad he got out of Raven's Flock, so we would be able to see just how great of a Cruiserweight he was. And of course, his finisher was the reason he drew me in: the Shooting Star Press (and he pulled off an awesome one at that). Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman matches, 4.5-star matches right there, people.
08. Senshi - I love this guy. He really plays the "Warrior" name rather well. The way he moves, his body behaviour, etc. Man, why hasn't he gotten another X-Division title run yet? Instead, he's stuck with Austin Starr and Bob Backlund. Whatever, TNA.
07. Chris Jericho - That's right, new fans. "Y2J"........hold on. Lionheart Chris Jericho was in the Cruiserweight Divison in WCW. Not only that, he wrestled in Japan as well (double bonus points in my books). Now let's see, picture Jericho at least 8 to 9 years younger and lighter, more or the same cocky attitude, was able to move around the ring more and his finisher, The Walls of Jericho (when he buried his knee into his opponent's lower back), hurt.....like.....hell. Nice combination, yes? Let us add the mic skills to make us wanna throttle him when he spoke. Well, years ago he really got on my nerves. Looking back at his past times in WCW, he kills me. Y2J, you are desperately needed in the WWE......badly.
06. Dean Malenko - the man with a thousand holds, and one hell of a wrestler. Unlike the other wrestlers from this division who flew around a lot, Malenko was more of a submission/mat based type of wrestler. Put him in a match with a high-flyer and he'd put on one hell of a match. I'm gonna have to thank the 2nd favorite Cruiserweight in my books for showing me how great of a wrestler he was.
05. Eddie Guerrero - if you thought Jericho would make you wanna throttle him as a heel, imagine what fans wanted to do to Eddie. They would've killed him. Just shows you how great he was as a heel. Fans chanted "Eddie Sucks" for reasons too (yes he was that hated). WCW did a horrible thing by not pushing him to main event status. So he went to the WWF and became their WWE champion, after battling drug addictions. A truly great story for this hotheaded Latino.........until he died in 2005 and WWE exploited him. Vince, you should be ashamed for what you did. And Eddie? Great Cruiserweight, great wrestler, great heel, great face, great charisma and mic skills........everything about him was just simply great. Rest In Peace, Eddie. You have done the wrestling world proud.
04. Super Crazy - he is super, he is crazy. He is way more talented than the Overrated One. He is SUPER......CRAZY. Man, why couldn't they make him a cruiserweight champion in the WWE? I already mentioned the reason why so I won't. It's a shame the WWE isn't doing anything for him. Come on, him and Rey Mysterio would put on 5-star opening matches which is what the WWE so desperately need. Why? Big men, enough said. Plus, he had the best moonsault......ever. Plus, countless, amazing battles with Tajiri. Phenomenal.
03. Rey Mysterio - before you start saying, "this isn't Rey Myseterio. You don't know anything," think again. In 1999, WCW made the biggest mistake in my view: he lost a match and in the process, his mask. OYE. When that mask came off, the name Mysterio died out completely in my mind. I only used this pic as a little inside on my wrestling knowledge. In any event, he truly is a awesome wrestler to watch. Funny thing is, he got bigger and was even slower than he ever was. Vince, get off your big man fetish PLEASE. Not only are you ruining Rey's credibility by packing on more pounds on the guy, but the whole Eddie Guerrero storyline fiasco. End it already.
02. Ultimo Dragon - the innovator of the Asai Moonsault, various wrestling $tyles, lucha libre and mixed martial arts. This is the Ultimo Dragon. This is to all of you fans of Cena, Batista, Lashley and every single crappy "wrestler" out there. Can any of your favorites win and hold eight different titles at once? HUH? NO, they can't. Because they cannot compare to the amazingness of Japanese legend, Ultimo Dragon. Plus, his time in WCW were some of his best. Such as matches with Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho and of course, Dean Malenko. Ya wanna watch some of his best matches? Look for Ultimo Dragon Vs Rey Mysterio at World War 3 and Dean Malenko at Starrcade (mostly this one).
01. Jyushin "Thunder" Liger - now THIS guy is the main reason why we have Cruiserweights in the United States and one of the many reasons why the Ultimo Dragon held eight titles at once. He is the innovator of the Shooting Star Press, an 11-time IGWP Junior Heavyweight Champion, countless matches with both juniors and heavweights, he is without a doubt a big legend in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
So there ya have it, 20 of my favorites under the following category:
- Light Heavyweights
- Junior Heavyweights
- X-Division alumni
Oh boy. What a year it has been:
- Signed into the databases here.
- First forum post in the Comedy section
- First appearance at the Animation, PowerPuff Girls, Dragon Ball Z, Teen Titans, Naruto, Pokémon, Card Captor Sakura, Boondocks and Sailor Moon forums.
- Over 10 reviews written within the last 24 hours.
- 3 contributions sent. One rejected, the other accepted.
- Reaching Level 21 (Snagglepuss) in such a short time. Hey, a year is VERY short.
- Earning 4 Editorship awards along the way (Randy Savage, Jushin Thunder Liger, Lance Storm and PowerPuff Girls Z respectively)
- Over 20 friends and 500 contributions. Thanks a lot.
- This blog would mark my 50th entry. Well, all right.
And most importantly, venturing to the WWE Raw, SmackDown, ECW and PPV forums. If it hadn't been for that move, none of you would've known me or I might have been a foolish WWE sheep just like JSamuels and Slade. Thank God .
Anyways, all I can say is: this has been a great year for me here. Hopefully I will still be here celebrating my 2nd year anniversary.
Adios. And BTW, 15 - 0 all the way.
26Mar 07Someone on TV.com who normally makes a lot of appearances on the Teen Titans forums was joking around with me since I got an Undertaker signature and avatar. And he posted this:
The Undertaker Tribute Video
Thank wwfpooh for finding this. And knowing DemonSlayerZea, he's gonna enjoy this.
23Mar 07FINALLY got it. On my first try to be exact.
Man, that trophy was a pain to get when I first played it.
I had to use Khali to win it though.......and the damn briefcase only had a inch of life left and I barely got it down.
So you know what that means? ECW Arena unlocked.
In all seriousness, how did this wrestling promotion slip past me for the last 19 years? Well for starters, I was pretty young back then. Secondly, my parents mostly watched WWF, so that could be another reason.
Unlike the sports-entertainment which is the WWE, these guys weren't all for the gimmick, Hollywood look of wrestling. Better yet, unlike the United States (and Telvinostic would agree on me if she sees this), they treated pro-wrestling like it was an actual sport. A ritual, one might say. Which is really cool.
Another thing I noticed was the crowd reaction. In the WWE, TNA or any North American wrestling promotion, the fans go nuts all of the time. Not Japanese fans. They are so quiet during matches that you can hear a pin drop. When something amazing happens, boy do they make the wrestlers in the ring know. That's what I like about the Japanese. They're one of the most respectful people in the world. It doesn't matter if you're a heel or face (that didn't matter either), the fans would cheer for you. Especially if you're a popular foreign wrestler. Ya hear that, WWE? Ya hear that, TNA? Not all foreign wrestlers have to be anti-American. Which is sickening, since I'm not American. What kind of message are they showing? Even though this has happened for a long time in wrestling.......STILL.
Finally, their ****of wrestling. The attacks from the wrestlers (such as punches and kicks)........CONNECTED. The other promotions, mostly the big ones, would never let punches and kicks connect. Well, New Japan did. They wanted their promotion to have some of the most stiff, hard hitting matches one can even imagine. Hell, who remembers Vader? From what I heard, he got punched in the face so hard that his eye swelled and it almost fell out of its socket. Um, yuck.....and......damn. That had to hurt. And the promos. They did them after the wrestlers had their matches. Not before. If they did it before, that would've killed the realistic feeling of watching wrestling, now wouldn't it?
So, I'm gonna treat you guys with a match from NJPW from 11 years ago, a clash between a Japanese legend and a WCW legend (Hint: he's wrestling in TNA), 3 entrances for a tag team match during one of WCW's many Tokyo Dome shows back then and a tribute video to one of the best Junior Heavyweights (that's their equivalent to a Cruiserweight) of all time, Jushin Thunder Liger. I hope you enjoy them. I know I did.
The Ultimo Dragon Vs The Great Sasuke: Finals of the Super J-Crown Tournament (1996)
Sting Vs The Great Muta (1992)
The Steiner Brothers, Sting and Great Muta entrances (1992)
Jushin "Thunder" Liger tribute video
Jushin "Thunder" Liger tribute video.
Hey, so nice that you gotta see a second one .
Bret Hart Avatar
Bret Hart Signature
From now until....whenever, I'm going to be renovating my neck of the woods with a full package regarding my favorite wrestlers, mostly those that I grew up watching. Finding a Bret Hart avatar was complicated, yet this one works. The Bret Hart signature is rare and I had better store this thing in a web server.
If anyone knows where I can find a good Bret Hart banner that does not repeat, please tell me so I can complete my page.
Now, one thing for sure, there's no way I'm gonna change these in the near future. WrestleMania is around the corner, he's been in 12 straight WrestleMania events (2 to 13)......and I am SO glad HHH will not be a part of this one. That way, Bret's record can stay up there for just one more year or so.
If I could be serious for a minute. A lot of ECW fans will know who this guy is instantly.
A 3-time ECW Tag Team champion, the first man to hold the WCW Hardcore, Cruiserweight and United States championships in one go. A 4-time Tag Team champion and as the pic above shows, a former Intercontinental champion in the WWF.
Sadly, one of two legendary Canadian wrestlers to never hold a world title in either ECW, WCW or WWE (the other being the late Owen Hart). Despite that, he will still be one of the best Canadian wrestlers in a long time. This man is Lance Evers, otherwise known as Lance Storm.
The man from Calgary, Alberta, Canada is my 3rd person that I have the editor emblem. Wow. This one was a major headache due to a bug on the site. Oh well, it was WORTH it. Adios.
For those of you who don't know, this is Keiichi Yamada, otherwise known as Jyushin "Thunder" Liger, a junior heavyweight (the Japanese equivalent to a cruiserweight in the United States) who is a legend in the land of the Rising Sun. He won the Junior Heavyweight title 11 times (a record that has never been broken up to this day) among other great accomplishments. Also, he was the man who innovated the highly popular aerial move, the Shooting Star Press.
The first time I saw him was in the ealy 90s in WCW. He made many appearances there and feuded with the late Brian Pillman, among other great junior heavyweights. If it weren't for him coming to American soil, there may not have been a Cruiserweight Division in WCW to begin with.
I would have to say that Liger's gimmick, which was based on an anime: Jyushin Liger, would have been the main thing that caught my eye as a child. As you can see, his attire was really something else. Now as a man, I saw some of his matches on YouTube as well as tribute videos.......and it's no wonder how this guy is considered a legend in Japan alongside one of his most intense rivals, The Great Muta.
Keiichi Yamada (Jyushin "Thunder" Liger) is now the second person that I have obtained editorship of. To me, that is a great honor to have someone like him under my editorship belt. Arigato, Yamada-san.
14Feb 07The 2nd half of the current manga is about to start. Which means every single filler we had to endure has finally come to an end. YES!!!!
To celebrate (and await the first episode to be available), I have 3 new signatures that I'm gonna use for quite a while. Each of these I found online.
For all of the people from the WWE forums, I plan on making a 2nd Anti-Batista signature. When I might finish it, Lord knows. College is a pain. Anyways, here they are:
What do you guys think of them?
19Jan 07The first time I saw TNA was on YouTube Wednesday. The match was Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe #1. Wasn't disappointed. Kurt always puts on a performance....and Joe impressed me. It's not often someone with his size can move around the way he does.
Then I saw Kurt Angle demanding a rematch with Samoa Joe (I gotta watch the 2nd match first).
Kurt: Sorry, Joe. This isn't personal.......actually it is personal.
Now that was funny
Finally, Chris Sabin Vs Petey Williams Vs AJ Styles for the TNA X-Division title in Ultimate-X. That was insane. But not as insane as the 20-man X-Division Battle Royal.
Unbelievable. If only I had checked them out months ago. And what does Vince do?
- Rip-off Samoa Joe by bringing in some talentless bum in Umaga.
- Destroy the Cruiserweight division with his movelist banning policies and "you cannot make my bodybuilders look bad" mentality.
- Stupid gimmicks with guys who have talent or have them lose contantly to guys who don't have talent.
- Randy Orton. Enough said. Kurt Angle is a better heel than him anyways.
- Donald Trump Vs Rosie O'Donnelle. What was he smoking when he made that up? Oh yeah....and when fans start chanting T-N-A during the match when you're around, it shows just how terrible the show is.
11Jan 07I had 2 days playing SmackDown and Raw 2007. And it felt good.
Sure, the new control system was extremely tough to get use to, but it was all right. The one thing that frustrated me though were those damn challenges....and the fact that 2 rather sweet looking arenas can only be acquired by one of those challenge trophies.
Worst, Money In The Bank. In order to get ECW's arena, I need to beat that special match under Legends difficulty.....and I was pissed when I kept getting tossed off. A little help there please?
Other than that, it was okay. All I need is some practice......and maintain my temper too. Adios.
9Jan 07After ions and ions of submissions, I have finally gained the editor badge which I have been desperately trying to achieve for quite some time now.
And look who I'm the editor of: none other than the "Macho Man" Randy Savage. OOOOH YEEEAAAAHHHH!!!!!
There's still more info to submit about Savage, that's for sure. I got the editorial spot after warming up actually I wonder who else needs an editor around here?
