Arn Anderson is another who always looked old.

What the gently caress was up with older generations of wrestlers looking like weathered sailors from birth. My dad is two years younger than Arn Anderson and he looks younger now than Arn does in that clip

Oozing machismo

here's a fun match for the thread.

It has Eddie Gilbert, Barry Windham, Ric Flair and a MYSTERY MAN.

not that I actually needed to be convinced that Ricky Steamboat MR. X, the mysterious masked man, is considered legendary for good reasons, but that match makes a succinct and awfully damned compelling argument for him

e: which is supposed to be my way of thanking you for sharing this. Thanks for curating the good stuff here

Windham wearing his kneepads below the knee, and generally anyone not wearing any at all, give me anxiety. You're gonna regret it!

Wrestlers without kneepads/shoes has always looked insanely wrong to me which is weird cause I have also watched MMA for the past 20 years

I think I have literally seen an MMA fighter do every single one of those things

Maybe not a frog splash
