Over the last two months, I've developed a serious addiction to watching old clips on YouTube of various wrestling moments. Most of these I only read about in PWI.Anyway, I thought I'd share a few:

Jimmy Snuka Leaves Capt. Lou Albano
I had only heard about this. I'd never seen the clip. It's strange how gritty this all is compared to the WWE and even TNA now.

Russian Flag angle from Mid-South
I remember reading about this in PWI, and recall it being a hugely controversial angle. Eddie Gilbert was great.

Randy Savage & Lanny Poffo vs. The Rock N Roll Express
Famous for one spot in particular. I remember there being a video that was for sale in PWI (Lords of Wrestling, I think) hosted by Gordan Solie and Joe Pedicino that features this match, and I recall Solie telling viewers to look away if they were squeemish.

Magnum TA Vs Nikita Koloff - Match 7 - US Title
Listen to the crowd. They're going NUTS for Magnum T.A. And the Koloffs' accents in the post-match interview are hysterical. There best of seven series is one of my favorite childhood pro-wrestling memories.

Hogan V Orndorff Pt1
Hogan V Orndorff Pt2
I'm pretty certain this is the match that occurred in Canada shortly after Orndorff's heel turn. Again, one of those matches that I heard and read a ton about, but never got to see until now. I recall PWI praising this match highly.

Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask
Yeah, this is some good stuff right here. Another match that I heard great things about but never saw.

Rhodes/Morton/Gibson vs. Eaton/Condrey/Rogers
I just stumbled across this match, and the crowd is absolutely NUTS for RnR and Rhodes. Watch Big Dust hit one of the worst looking piledrivers you'll ever see.

Jerry Lawler Vs Austin Idol Cage Match
Didn't a near riot break out after this match? Still, great stuff. I don't remember how I saw this originally. Anyway, another clip that was not available for those of us on the West Coast.

Odd, most of clips here feature some kind of piledriver spot. Was the move just more common back then? Anyway, I could literally post videos all day long, but there's some amazing classic stuff on YouTube if you look around.

Why wouldn't Bryan tread lightly with Orton? Everyone who has ever given him an owie has been buried without mercy. It's the only smart way to wrestle him.
