Do people know that it’s not Dave’s decision to put Big Daddy into the HoF or not ?

That is true, however he does have a fair amount of sway with his write ups. I don't have much to say on the Big Daddy issue one way or the other, but his write up of Kent Walton when he was on the ballot a while back was absolutely piss-poor and misleading. He dismissed him as a part time pornographer, which turned out to mean he was an exec producer on some British sex comedies.

The glory of Meltzer isn't in his reviews (in all fairness, I don't see why anyone would put stock in anyone's reviews. Wrestling is a thing of personal taste), it's in his analysis and historical kno

Funny how Eric Bischoff can't remember a fucking thing but is sure about everything Meltzer is wrong about.

I couldn't agree more.

Well, it didn't work because Kent got voted in

"Have a good week....til next week" is a great title is a great title/tag line for a 70s cheeky softcore flick. Old Kent missed a trick there.

Back on topic Shirley Crabtree's reputation as a wrestler is based for most people on diminishing returns as Big Daddy in late middle age.

Does anyone know how he was regarded as a worker in the pre-tv era as the battling guardsman character?

Catching up on some episodes of Observer Radio, I think the way Meltzer can’t even pick up on Kenny Omega playing subtle heel speaks volumes.

“I don’t think he’s playing heel, he’s just playing superstar.” Fucking hell, Dave.

Is it any wonder he gravitated towards something as broad and in-your-face as pro-wrestling? And is it any wonder he constantly finds himself struggling with guys working him or feeding him bullshit just to amuse themselves?

Lower budget version of his New Japan entrance when he was a 'heel', except he wasn't really a heel (unless you're bothered about factions). Just as over, with or without the cleaner gimmick. Having one of the best singles wrestlers in the world, as part of a tag-team, was a dumb idea in the first place. Let him do what he does best, while he still can. I'm with Meltzer on this one.  The bloke's just doing what he did in Japan. A less humble version of him maybe, but unless he starts throwing fire paper or using sledgehammers to win matches, I don't see that much heel in him.
