Favourite stories and matches from the 80’s.


Recommended Posts

To many it was the greatest era of wrestling to many backstage it was known as the swan song to crazy antics and illegal happenings behind closed doors.

To me it was the true era of tragedy in wrestling. 
 

We had so many hot prospects who later died after making it in whatever promotion they were with at the time from the Adrian Adonis who died at the young age of 34 to the true young prospects in guys like David and Mike Von Erich. 
 

No matter how hard I search through these promotions, I always miss certain classic matches or backstage heat or antics.

A few matches to get us started but please feel free to post matches by prospects who more than likely would have been major players in wrestling by the early to mid 90s.

Ah, just what we need as a refreshing antidote to the MeToo thread… an “antics” thread. Don’t worry, the antics didn’t die in the 80s. Wrestlers and people in wrestling carried on being horrific to each other and to innocent members of the public for decades to come. I’d be surprised if that’s not Vinces defence - “It was only antics, guv.”

Antics.
