Westcott's Professional Wrestling Web Page!!
(Home of Westcott's Wrestling Archives)
I have been a fan of professional wrestling since 1989. I started watching WWF Prime Time Wrestling on the USA Network and have been a fanatic ever since. Favorite wrestlers: my all-time favorite wrestler would have to be Barry Windham. He was great at being both a heel (rulebreaker/bad guy) and a babyface (fan favorite/good guy). My favorite Japanese wrestler is Jushin "Thunder" Liger. I remember watching Liger on WCW Main Event in 1991 when he started his feud with Brian Pillman over the WCW World Light Heavyweight Championship. The man is simply awesome!
Favorite promotions: I like a lot of Japanese professional wrestling and some Lucha Libre as well. I was also sad to hear about the folding of both the USWA in Tennessee and Extreme Championship Wrestling. I also loved Smoky Mountain Wrestling when it was around. (Thanks, Jim Cornette.) But I never thought I would see the day when Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment purchased Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling and turned the pro wrestling world upside down. I am enjoying the products put out by Ring of Honor and Total NonStop Action.
My favorite play-by-play announcers/color commentators are Mike Tenay, Michael Cole, Joey Styles, Chris Cruise, Craig Johnson, Scott Hudson, Joe Pedicino, Jesse Ventura, Bob Caudle, Bobby Heenan, Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, Lance Russell, Jim Ross and the late Gordon Solie.
