No, This is the Greatest Wrestling Video Ever…

…says Slog tipper Matt. A wrestler asks for a chair and the crowd obliges:

Wrestlers Need A Chair And Fans Deliver - Watch more free videos

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say the totality of that might not have been in the "script".

I hate it when non-wrestling fans post random videos as if they are new.

Both of those wrestlers aren't even active, that clip is at least 10 years old, and is from a FAMOUS ECW match.

Worst Post Ever!

I just outed myself as a wrestling the room can get back to their normalcy.

Hey, Jorge. I don't think anybody watching that video could think it was new. And nobody's said anything about it being new or whether the wrestlers are active. It was posted as the best wrestling video ever not as the newest wrestling video with the best current wrestlers.

Feh, I remember the days when REAL wrastlers like Dutch Savage and Stan Stasiak would EAT folding metal chairs for breakfast.

These weenies wouldn't know REAL wrastlin' if it tippie-toed up behind 'em, tapped 'em on the shoulder, and then gave 'em the ole' "turnbuckle treatment".

On the right, in the brown costume, you've got Mick Foley, best-selling author and multiple-time WWF/WWE champion. On the left you've got Terry Funk, one of the wrestlers profiled in the brilliant "Beyond the Mat" documentary.

Those were heady days.

Stan "The Man" Stasiak with his match ending Heart Punch!

Oh yeah, I used to love wrestling when I was a kid.

How about the king of one armed push ups? Playboy Buddy Rose.

The internet is a race and I lost.

Dan, I applaud your great taste in wrestling.

I saw you at the Cuff last night Dan, where were you off to in such a hurry?

Good match, the mass transit incident
is funnier knowing the backstory.
Go look up Botchamania on youtube
though, that's solid gold.

Old or not I'm amused!
