The Steve "Dr. Death" Williams Memorial Wrestling Thread

Steven Williams (May 14, 1960 – December 29, 2009), better known by his ring name "Dr. Death" Steve Williams, was an American professional wrestler and former collegiate football and wrestling star at the University of Oklahoma. (wikipedia)

Steve Williams was one of those rare American professional wrestlers who made a bigger impact in Japan than in the United States. My first experience seeing him was as a monster in ECW where he went on quite a tear. I remember him shrugging off one of Stevie Richards' superkicks and utterly dominating Axl Rotten. A bit later, I started playing Firepro games and he quickly became one of my favorite wrestlers in the games, primarily due to his stunning offense. Finally, there was an odd, text-based wrestling simulator called (I think) TNM that I used to play. In it, my e-fed character used the Doctor Bomb to great effect, somehow defeating Sabu in something like six seconds and putting him on the shelf with a back injury.

At any rate, my introduction to Dr. Death was an odd, yet overwhelmingly positive one. There's not much more to say, onto the videos.

I applaud your dedication to Dr. Death for this new pro wrestling thread.

This one's for you, Mr. Williams.



Heeeey-eeeey-eeeey-yeah...!

Also, tonight will be a great night. I hope. Tonight will either help usher in a new, much-needed era of pro wrestling, or allow WWE to hold a lackluster monopoly over North American pro wrestling.

Demo, I read that there will be an eight woman tournament to crown the new champ, not just one match.

I think tonight will have some major surprises and be tons of fun.

But if you think the gap between WWE and TNA in ratings will be minimal (i.e., less than 1.0), you're off your rocker.

Moreover, what I'd like to see tonight are long term plans laid out on television - see feuds start that don't come to a crescendo for 3-5 months or so (that's fucking forever and a day in today's wrestling). I'd like to see flow, I'd like to see wrestling matches that mean something and are worth watching.

I don't think we'll get that on either show, but I hope one at least hints that they'll head in that general direction.

EDIT: What I think we'll get is a lot of WWE and TNA both blowing their wads to compete with each other (esp. TNA). WWE has Michaels/Undertaker and Hart/McMahon they can continue tonight, and those are feuds that can go for a 12-week story arc. That would be nice.

A couple of matches announced tonight for Impact...

Spoiler

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

No idea who wrote this but.....

UFC Unleashed is currently running on SPIKE TV on the east coast. While showing the live crowd in Orlandoto hype the countdown to the live Impact, they showed Scott Hall and Sean Waltman in the crowd, posing for the cameras.

As Omar Little might say, indeed.

I suspect my hopes are way too high given what we'll see - but you know, sometimes the anticipation of a program can make it much more enjoyable than it would be otherwise. TV's quality being subjective and all, that is.

IIRC, he opted to not renew his contract so he could take some time off.

FU tv guide. They said TNA would be on right now on Spike HD (suppose to be live in HD channels on west coast like Raw) but its another CSI episode. Guess I'll have to wait til 8.

I'm not sure a match where you can't see into the ring was a great idea.

During Suicide's entrance, my buddy turns to me and says "Wouldn't it be awesome if Suicide wins and takes off his mask and it's Jeff Hardy?"

Yes...yes it would.

Ah. I missed that part, I thought he was just injured and in a ton of legal trouble.

I very rarely watch TNA, and I can't believe Black Machismo still exists. I certainly can't say the majority TNA's actual wrestling has ever failed to entertain me, though. The original Barbed Wire Massacre is one of my favorite matches, I'd like to watch this one if it's on in the first hour. But, I mean, really. Is anyone going to watch Hulk Hogan's 39th return over Bret Hart?

Also, for some reason, I just found out tonight that Raw is in my state of Ohio and I'm definitely not happy about it. Every time I decide not to go to a show, something amazing happens without fail.
