It's probably been posted before but the search thing on here is still crap. Here's Becky in 2011.

"I think I've pretty much done everything that, career-wise, I could possibly do"

Don't be one of those cranks who gets weird over her name.

Best of the Super Juniors 1974. Not officially 'a thing', but albeit with my fairly limited knowledge, I can't think of anywhere that was producing matches like this, as far back as '74.

I'd forgot all about Diesel's 'tweener' phase after dropping the title at Survivor Series 95. Its shocking how much better his character was than the smiling corporate puppet of a few months earlier.

Thinking about it, was this promo (approx 2 mins in) the first reference on WWF TV of Vince pulling the strings?

I think it's the first overt one, yeah. Jesse Ventura used to make jokes about it on commentary, and it may have been mentioned here and there in the '80s, but I don't think it was a storyline point before then.

There's an interminably long video "documentary"/series of shoots suggesting the Montreal Screwjob was a work, and that Bret was in on it, and one of the points is that Bret started referring to Vince as the owner when that hadn't been done before, and that allowed Vince to become Mr. McMahon after the Screwjob. And I remember thinking watching that, "Diesel had already been doing that schtick years earlier".

Teddy Long's wedding to Krystal from mid 00's Smackers. Vince swaying along in his seat to the band and Teddy joining in with the song is fantastic. Forgot that Tessmacher was in WWE too.

That's Gatoh Moves regular Japanese venue, Ichigaya Chocolate Square. I believe it's an old pharmacy? Wrestlers routinely get thrown through the service hatch windows.

It's a tiny venue - probably capacity of 50 or fewer - with no ring, and it's absolutely delightful. A couple of my favourite matches of the last year took place there, because the environment forces creativity and inventive spots.

Didn't know Omega had worked there, though!

A guy on YouTube, who was briefly active about 7 months ago, has started to upload a bunch of previously unseen matches from WWF tours of Kuwait in the 80's and 90's.  Here's Shawn Michaels vs Owen Hart from the 1996 Kuwait Cup.

Cool video from when Nick Aldis came to Norwich a few weeks back and defended the NWA title. By all accounts Brad Slayer his opponent is the first openly gay wrestler to challenge for the NWA Championship.
