World of Sport Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm gonna level with you - I know next to nothing about World of Sport. My only real experience is through watching some on TWC, though I'd usually turn over for something else at that point. When I did watch though, I'd sometimes really enjoy how slick the holds and selling were. As a wannabe wrestler, I'd try to fathom out some of the sequences and how they got it so slick. I also got a kick out of some of the storytelling and thr drama towards the end of a fall.

 

However, that's about as far as it goes for me. I never really chased it up after it was off of TWC. I downloaded a Dynamite Kid pack, a Johnny Saint pack and a Mark Rocco pack but didn't watch most of it. Those names to me are famous names in the British circuit. I'm interested in matches that are 'must see' in terms of their standing in history, context etc. and lesser known gems, perhaps from lesser known wrestlers. Anything that's a good introduction to World of Sport really.

 

I know there are a lot of fans on here, and there seems like a real lack of discussion of this on a UK forum. So fire away!

Johnny Saint VS anyone. Then tug away.

 

You'll get the same names recommended to you (and rightly so), but there's some lesser known guys that have had some cracking bouts, too. Mike 'Flash' Jordan was someone whose matches I always enjoyed.

 

Also, Naggers & Blondie Barrett VS Regal and Brookside. The infamous hypnotism match.

Can't go wrong with Johnny Saint and Rollerball Rocco. Saint's match with a young Robbie Brookside is a load of fun, and his one match in Japan in Michinoku Pro with Hoshikawa is decent too. Rocco's matches with Fuji Yamada (later known as Jushin Liger) were way ahead of their time.

 

Check out some Les Kellett for great comedy matches, and it should be easy to find one of my favourites: Kendo Nagasaki & Psycho Stevens vs. Wayne Bridges & Rollerball Rocco.
