I wish they would do more pairing of power guys with high flyers. I realize you can't have too many teams like that or they aren't unique but I could see actually see a Chad Gable tag team with Titus O'Neill being far better than one with Shelton Benjamin, if only because there would be a sharper contrast in size and they could do the spots that people usually enjoy, like when you press slam your partner on to your opponents and that sort of thing.

Loss is obviously a huge Hart Foundation fan. Maybe we should reopen that old thread.

In Topic: Bob Backlund vs Stan Hansen (NJPW Bloody Fight Series 09/30/80)

I liked this a lot. These two are uniquely matched against each other as both like to take a bunch of the match if you don't stop them. Sometimes (like when Mil and Brody interact) that goes poorly. With these two, it worked and felt like a real struggle. At points they really went at it too. The Backlund high knee, piledriver, and headbutt were some of the best things I've EVER seen out of him. I absolutely loved that Hansen got a revenge high knee later on. (I saw this clipped, btw, and what I saw started with the armbar which made for a slighter match but a better one. That's a weird argument for editing I guess?). Every missed Hansen lariat was just massive and I liked some of the outside stuff towards the end plenty. It's worth a watch.
