I like it. It gives the event an old school boxing feel.

Pretty much every wrestling show I've seen from before 1988 or so reminds me of Rocky, and I miss that.

There was some red crap smudged across one of the cameras at this event, and I keep thinking that I spilled Tahiti Treat on my monitor or something.

I dig how Steamboat's crossbody looked more forceful than the ones you see today. I think it's because he doesn't get as much air but it's nice.

Heel stalling tactics haven't happened in pro wrestling since last night when Randy Orton used them.

I would have to imagine he crossed paths with Renegade in WCW at some point.

I seem to remember it being a common talking point that around the time the parasailing accident happened, Beefacke had become perfectly acceptable in the ring. That said, I am not willing to investigate the matter, because it involves watching a lot of Beefcake matches.
