    This is pretty awesome, just one of a bunch of great promos I have seen from Funk in my WCW rewatch. Middle aged and crazy indeed.

    Speaking of, anyone remember his interview segment on the NWA Power Hour?

    Bit of a change in gears here: I can't find a specific promo online that really does it justice but I've been watching some old Mid-Atlantic and Ron Bass was a bit of an underappreciated promo. They give him time week on week and he delivers well and is always pretty engaging. I kinda wish I could find something that showed that in a good light but nothing I've hit sat here has done it. Best bet is to check out some of the archives on the network.

    Of course, this could also be because I'd just watched Vince McMahon interview Tony Garea and everything looks better by comparison. Good grief.

    Garea is underrated in the ring for my money, but yeah not much of a promo...

    Bass never really amounted to anything in his WWF run but I'm not shocked that he was a bit better elsewhere, particularly on the mic. He certainly had enthusiasm at the very least!

    My experience of watching All-Star in the 1970s is there's a lot of steak but the sizzle is really at a bit of a premium. Very few guys other than the managers have been good interviews. Garea probably isn't that much worse than the average, to be fair. Still, it was a successful territory, so clearly that was all they needed to be.

    It's interesting on Bass, because everything I've found to share he's been screaming and bloviating, but in some of the stuff in the WWE vault he comes across as a far more charismatic figure when he just... talks. And they give him a spot most weeks and he's just really quietly quite good at it. I suspect that at 38 and from Arkansas, he's just that bit too old and that bit too Southern to feature heavily in Vince's national vision.


    Y'know who else I've noticed is a bit of an underappreciated promo lately? King Kong Bundy.

    Yes, absolutely agree with that one! It's hard to think of a way Bundy isn't underrated though. Dude was great fun.

    I don't know if it's rare but it sure is good. "It's been your pleasure, as usual!"

    Chop!! Gonna watch that one RIGHT NOW!!

    Gah, Tony with a mullet and a mustache! They had some work to do on the Human Suit, I see.

    Man, Tully is over as hell.

    You got another check to cancel or something??

    Ha, he wasn't phased by the lumberjacks, but the belts got him!

    WHAT HAPPENED TO WRESTLING, cries Arn Anderson!

    Regroup, counsels Arn. I love it.

    Tully wants the boss to come down with a belt and catch Ricky Morton in his lap!!

    Christ, I love Tully and Arn. Everything they do is amazing.

    Tully was so fucking good. When he starts rubbing his hands, psyching himself up. I LOVE IT! Like Prime says - Take My Money.

    Edit: Arns distaste for gimmick matches cracks me up!
