SLAM! Readers speak: The wish list
By SLAM! Wrestling Readers

Cartoon by Annette Balesteri, our SLAM! Wrestling Editorial Cartoonist

Last week the SLAM! staff forked over their holiday want lists. This week, we take a look at what our readers want.

To say that the response was diverse would be an unterstatement. The majority of readers, however, chose to have a DVD as their present. Whether WWE will take the SLAM! wishlist and make our dreams realities remains to be seen, but in the meantime, let's take a look at yur holiday wish lists.

John Said

I'd love a DVD compilation of Missy Hyatt's greatest moments in wrestling. She managed enough people in enough high profile matches that it's wrestling content would be excellent. Plus, to me, she will always be the first lady of wrestling and she put the eye in eye candy for young hormonal teens way back when.

My dream Christmas present would be waking up to Stacy Keibler under my tree wearing nothing but a bow on her head.


Marcel Beaudoin

What would I like for christmas...
The entire ECW VHS/DVD video library.

Jason Skidmore

There are 3 things that I would like for Christmas.

  1. I would like to have a DVD from All Japan Pro Wrestling. I would love to see Mick Foley’s matches with C4s in the ring, as well as the many, many other great wrestling matches (Liger, Inoki etc…..).
  2. A best of the worst gimmicks DVD. A full DVD of all the people that could not get a good gimmick. Also to have on there the gimmicks before they were stars (Giant Gonzalez, The Ringmaster and the list goes on).
  3. Like Bob Kapur, all the old rubber wrestlers from back in the '80s. I had so many and they got lost as I grew up.

I have been the biggest 'Hitman' fan in the world since I was 16. I am now 34, and had the opportunity to see the Hitman wrestle in 1997. My husband knows that the Hitman was my first love. I think I'd like a compilation of his greatest matches on DVD. Bret Hart vs. Rowdy Roddy Piper, British Bulldog at Summer Slam (best match in the history of the sport), HBK... come to think of it, all of his matches were great. I would also love to see a video of Kerry Von Erich. He is my second favorite wrestler of all time, and there is just not enough recorded about his carreer.

All I want for christmas: Is for Bret "Hitman" Hart to have a happy and safe 2005.
