This week’s Top Five is about pro wrestlers we truly miss seeing on our TV screens each and every week. Men and/or women wrestlers that either retired or passed on that we no longer get the privilege of being entertained by anymore.
You have to give AWA owner Verne Gagne credit where credit is due. Despite all of his bad booking decisions and bad business ventures, Gagne was still doing everything he could to keep his sinking American Wrestling Association afloat any way he knew how. Everything he tried failed, but hats off for Verne to give it that ol’ college try.
This week’s Top Five will be who were your top five greatest adversaries against Hulk Hogan? Wrestlers that made great heels/babyfaces and pushed Hogan to be one of the biggest stars of any generation.
Injuries in professional wrestling are a pretty common occurrence. The real physicality of the wrestlers does take its toll. One injury in particular, dragged an entire promotion down with it. This is the story of how a sudden knee injury to the company’s top babyface had bookers scrambling to figure out what to do next.
This is the 354th installment of the ‘Wrestling with Sin‘ series. A group of stories that delves into the darker, underbelly of pro wrestling. Many of the stories involve such subjects as sex, drugs, greed and in some cases even murder! As with every single story in the Sin series, I do not condone or condemn the alleged participants. We simply retell their stories by researching interviews, newspapers, magazines and various other sources of media.
It’s Saturday and today we have ’This Week in Wrestling’, the 38th of 2021. Today Brian looks at the cancellation of Ric Flair and Tommy Dreamer and shares all the best wrestling content from this week.
