What stiff looks like, especially HHR powering over a resistant Stan Hansen starting at 3:10 (we've often heard about Harley's "double tendon strength," but coming up here are some clips displaying that physical power)...:




Then there's the first thing Race does when he tags in at 3:57...:


He didn't do much face versus face work in his career, but here's a best two of three falls clean defense of the NWA belt over Jumbo Tsuruta from June 1977 in Tokyo. HHR uses his signature Indian Deathlock submission at 18:14, a move of his there is surprisingly little footage of. (These two worked well together a number of times.)



Classic Race promo:


A real case can be made he was the true toughest man ever in pro wrestling. Overcame childhood polio, a near fatal car accident in 1960 which killed his pregnant first wife (and he later outlived his fourth wife, who died of pneumonia in 2009).

While Meng is widely considered the most dangerous man from the business by most of his peers, he's also been described as crazy and unrestrained when provoked. Harley wasn't crazy, but flat out physically and mentally tough, and repeatedly overcame a maddening assortment of injuries, accidents and tragedies Tonga Fifita never had to suffer, endure or try recovering from. (At their level of toughness, nobody is feared, but they had mutual respect.) Alcohol could kick Meng's ass, but Harley Race could leave hard liquor suffering from a hangover.


1975 in AJPW. Race (who was over big in Japan) gets the clean pin over Dusty Rhodes (who never could quite get over in Japan) with a diving headbutt off the top rope. Dynamite Kid and Chris Benoit could not perform this move without paying the price, but HHR never paid the price for doing this career long stunt. (Ultimately, it was Race's lifelong cigarette smoking habit which inflicted the lung cancer that finally took him out where multiple crashes and injuries couldn't.)





Forget what his body looked like, he could do things one wouldn't expect by judging his physique. On King Kong Bundy, dropkick at 12:40, flying head scissors at 12:45, body slam at 12:53 (holding Bundy up off his feet for three full seconds), then dropping Bundy with another well executed dropkick at 14:50. There's also footage of him performing a body slam outside the ring on Andre the Giant. Like Bockwinkle, he could produce a good and different match with anybody. (Both Race and Bockwinkle could work well with guys like Backlund, something Ric Flair wasn't able to do with his in ring limitations. Flair had tremendous charisma, and Backlund was a great athlete, but they couldn't produce great chemistry with everybody. Race and Bockwinkle could, and they worked well together as a tag team, something not true for many headliner super teams.)



In 1969, Iron Mike DiBiase had a fatal heart attack in the ring working with Man Mountain Mike. Race, realizing what was happening, dashed out to the ring to perform CPR, then rode in the ambulance to the hospital where DiBiase was pronounced dead at age 45. 30 years later, he followed Owen Hart's ambulance to the hospital. He went through gut wrenching tragedies, and more than being a man's man, he was a GREAT man, somebody to want to have standing by in a moment of need.

I'd love to shag the absolute fuck out of that Natayla bird.
She's waaaaaaaay thicker than I normally go for, but I agree. There is something about her. That dirty smirk that is pretty much her default facial expression helps. :lol:

:hat

Alexa still my girl though. Becky of course has her moments, Carmella has shocked me with how much she's grown on me, and I find Lana smoking hot in her ballgowns and leotards. But Bliss is the Queen. Even sexier IRL too, which was a welcome surprise. :lol:

Man there's a clip of her on YouTube in lingerie trying it on with her husband and her body is insane. She's curvy with the weight in all the right places.

Carmella is pure utter filth. She just screams of having a good time. The type of bird where you'd book a hotel for the weekend and spend the whole time on a drink coke and shagging binge. Legs for miles as well.

Becky is fit as fuck too.

Stacy Kiebler was fuckin unreal in her day too. Those legs man.
