Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola

With World of Sport starting next week on ITV with a pretty sweet TV deal we might need a thread for discussion. Do you think we'd be better served by a dedicated thread or a general British/European wrestling thread?

That's cool, when is it airing?

I've started watching OSW Reviews; has anyone ever revealed who the original opening singer was supposed to be, that no showed and got replaced by Okerlund?

I gave a quick look around the internet and didn't see anything. AFAIK it's never been said

Who was the first heel you cheered for and do you remember why?

All I knew as a kid is that The Dungeon of Doom were like real life super villians and honest to god I thought they had real life magic powers.

Hello chiicagooo!

Oh, wait, is that a GameStop employee in the back? Hey, you, give me a refund. No, I don't care if it was my fault, just - look, am I the one with the microphone or not? REFUND, biyotch!

Were the Headshrinkers or the Orient Express presented as full 3-man units at any point? Or did Seone/Kato just replace Samu/Sato outright?

I’m assuming it’s the latter because I recall the whole Ax/Smash/Crush thing feeling very different and novel to me when it happened.

Euro Wres makes more sense imo. You've got WXW and OTT as well, they both have things happening, imo.

One time a guy stole some downhill skis out of my jeep and I was so mad I punched a mailbox. I'm against crime, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

You are correct, Seone and Sato were replacements.

I have been a fan of Ric Flair and Arn Anderson since pretty much day 1. And I totally understand all the Razor Ramon mentions. All those awful goofy gimmicks from the early 90s, and Scott just strutted out there bigger than everybody else wearing all this jewelry and talking slower, because he didn't need to say very much. It really made him stand out. Everyone else just came across like desperate try-hards.

Honestly, I see a bit of him in Naito

You've got to admit, you are kind of implausible

Kato replaced Sato, but Sato came back a while later for a handful of 6 man matches before leaving again.

I'm reading Chris Charlton's new book and decided I need to look into some UWF as they're about the only Japanese company I never bothered to at least check out. What are some matches or shows I should check out?

On the 'first heel you cheered for' bit, I think it was Demolition. Maybe the Mountie because

But the real thing I wanted to say was I went to an ROH show a few months ago and there was a kid there, maybe 5 years old, who was SUPER into Rhett Titus of all people. He kept screaming SQUISH HIM RHETT CRUSH HIM. So for that kid his answer might be Rhett Titus which is hilarious to me

I honestly got into wrestling a little late for my age group in school so around sometime in the 2000s and I loved HHH. I still remember the first time I showed my cousin wrestling and he got really really heated when he beat the poo poo out of Earl Hebner on a RAW or something

Also makes me think of how my grandpa would always get really angry when I watched wrestling because it was “fake bullshit” and then Kane chokeslammed a ref and he got mad and was like “and now this guy is beating up a harmless ref! He should be in jail!”
