In Topic: Sophie's wrestling choice

Yesterday, 05:07 AM

Glad this thread is still going - I think it's a really interesting question.

 

I was listening to the 605 Christmas special and during the group discussion someone asked what modern wrestling everyone watches. Replies were in the 'bit of this/bit of that' range. Most of them were fans since the 70s and 80s, which gets me wondering if that's the normal way of most wrestling fans - you stay interested/current until a certain point and then just delve into your memories and nostalgia when it's not 'your wrestling' anymore. 

 

I'm 39 and can already see my viewing tilting more towards 70s/80s/90s as time passes. I'm very specific about what current matches and angles I watch now (I wouldn't dream of watching anything live). That's partly due to the huge amount of current wrestling out there, but even if there was less I think I'd still be picky.

 

Is Meltzer a massive exception to that?

There was a cool little story with Lance Storm on Keller's show a few week's ago. Storm talked about how well-informed and up to date Jericho is when interviewing non-wrestling guests, but the he (Storm) and other wrestlers were startled at how many well known stories from within the business came as a surprise to Jericho when talking with wrestlers.

My wife bought me the book as a Christmas present. I'm up to the start of 1993 now. As everyone else has said, really good, detailed work on the early part of his life and career.

 

I hadn't really thought about how much he disappeared in the latter part of 1990, that was interesting. And I didn't know the first idea was a tag team with Benoit in late 1992.

Hall of Fame discussion on this week's 605 - looking forward to giving it a listen.

 

Also, I'll say that the Christmas special was very good - much better than the recent backslapping festivals the holiday specials have descended into.
