In Topic: Thoughts on the DVDVR Mid South matches

Today, 02:49 PM

I just finished this set, and I thought it would be fun to rank all 150 matches to see how my rankings would compare to the DVDR Best of the 1980's Mid South Results.  First of all, I have to say this is probably my favorite collection of matches I've ever watched.  I would have, at least, my top 49 at **** or greater.  I absolutely loved watching all 150!  I can't say that there was a single match that I didn't at least like.  Here's my top 150 with the DVDR Ranking listed with it.  Also, I'll say it's really hard to track and list this many matches when you enjoy them all this much.
 
1.  Ted DiBiase vs. Hacksaw Duggan (No DQ, LLT, CMG on a Pole, Tuxedo, Cage Match) - 3/22/85 (DVDR Ranked #1)
2.  Hacksaw Duggan vs. Buzz Sawyer - 11/11/85 (DVDR Ranked #4)
3.  Ted DiBiase vs. Ric Flair - 11/6/85 (DVDR Ranked #3)

***I accidentally left out DVDR Ranked #79 Ted DiBiase, Dr. Death, and Jim Duggan vs. Masked SS, Dick Murdoch, and Buzz Sawyer from 01/31/1986.  I had that one around ***1/2, and I don't think that would be too far off from where I would place it.

In Topic: Dick Murdoch vs "Dr. Death" Steve Williams - UWF 6/13/87

Today, 07:22 AM

It should be noted that Dick Murdoch put Dr. Death in that cast after a match with Eddie Gilbert in which Murdoch was in Gilbert's corner (5/17/1986).  Murdoch jumped off the top rope crashing into Death's arm on top of a chair.  Ross and Magnum put it over like it could be a career ending injury.  Doc was ready for revenge here, so he does everything he can to return the favor.  Rightfully so, his focus is on the left arm of Dick Murdoch.  And yes, I don't think Doc has ever been in match that Ross was calling without the Sooners being mentioned.  I thought this was a great match.  It told a good story.  Murdoch tried everything from a mic stand, to a ring bell, and the help of EG, but he just couldn't keep the big man down.

The Fabs are without a doubt in my personal top 5 and this match rules! I've loved seeing them as heels work the Guerreros as faces. Especially because of how much I enjoyed the Guerreros as heels prior to this and Fabs as faces in Memphis.

In Topic: Fabulous Ones vs Guerreros (Houston 12/29/85)

10 August 2017 - 09:28 AM

The Fabs as faces in Memphis are one of my favorite tag teams ever, and I absolutely loved the Guerreros as heels during the earlier years of the mid-south set.  It has been really cool watching them work these past few matches with the heel and face dynamic reversed.  I've really enjoyed it.  Two really great tag teams that were great at being faces or heels.
