Nashville-era TNA is just the sleaziest most uncomfortable to watch wrestling of all-time (well maybe XPW is up there). ECW was like the Waltons compared to the Russo/Athena shit, how could someone enjoy that.

 

Agreed. It was Russo without any filter at all. Stuff he couldn't do in WCW, he finally could do there. And it's brutal.

As a kid my boy was Barry Horowitz as digged his checkered blue or Black & Green trunks he wore. Marked the hell out when he beat Chris Candido on Wrestling Challenge and then the undefeated Hakushi.

 

Same here. Always loved Horowitz and was glad he got a little bit of a push then. Horowitz was the perfect guy for the job, could work, bump, give you a solid match whomever he worked against, had a good look, had character. A unsung hero of US pro-wrestling if the late 80's/90's.

That's the whole point of the thread… 

 

Which is why I could also pick Barry Darsow. I kinda like him, although he basically sucked in every incarnation he's ever been in. ;)

 

But I definitely could pick WWF Bravo too, if only because french announcer Eddie Carpentier would pimp the hell out of him as a major star and player all the time back then. And 14 years old me was buying to every word Carpentier was saying.

"That other woman" is Sara Amato, aka Sara Del Rey.

 

Thanks for the info. I knew the name, but no idea how she looked like. (much like Rousey)

For me it's Ray Rougeau & the guy in my avatar, Dave Taylor.

 

Nope. They have to be rather crappy workers to be "boys".
