Showcase of the Immortals / Favorite Known Unknowns

By which I mean the guys you love who, judging by their talent (or at least their personal appeal to you), should be household names but just never quite got the recognition you feel they deserve.

The Briscoes. I've made no secret of the fact that #demboys are my all time favorite tag team and I think that they are all around one of the most entertaining acts in pro wrestling today. Jay Briscoe is a top 30 all-around in the world imo, and these guys have a winning record over every top non-WWE team in the world including The Bucks, but get no recognition outside of RoH, even by most indie smarks. I don't get it. Luckily, their style lends itself to a lengthy career, so hopefully I'll get to watch them for a long time to come.

Alex Shelley. He's in his mid 30s now and sadly retired last year, but if he was 5-7 years younger his looks, style, and charisma would be perfect for the current NJPW, LU, RoH, or even WWE product. He got some minor attention and recognition with the MCMG and Time Splitters, but he's still virtually unknown outside of mid 2000s TNA marks and New Japan purists.

Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave Osborne, aka the human parrot on Arrested Development, has passed away at the age of 76. He was a multiple Emmy award winner, and wrote for nearly every variety show to ever get on the air.

Fight 2: takes place sometime during the events of IASIP and AD. Fist fight. George is wearing his prison jumpsuit. Frank is wearing skinny jeans and a stained white undershirt

Neil DeGrasse Tyson has been accused of sexual misconduct with multiple women.

This is why we can't have nice things.

I know we have a couple other LU threads, but I don't really care. At least Riv will have another place to say "I don't watch it, and here's 27 posts saying so".

I watched the first 15 episodes or so when they came out but I fell way behind, so I started binging last week and I'm halfway through season two. So no spoilers beyond that, please.

1. I know I'm the only one, but I loved Vampiro when he wrestled. I loved him as an announcer at first. But HOLY FUCK he gets real annoying, real quick. Between "let's move the ring out of the way so they can fight", "like a freight train hitting a Volkswagen, brother", "I'm sorry, it is what it is", and "correcting" Matt Striker (arguably the best play by play guy in the business) I just want to punch him in the fucking head. He just says stuff that makes literally no sense in context.

2. LU has introduced me to my new favorite wrestlers. Texano, Drago, and motherfucking PENTAGON.

3. Catrina is so ridiculously hot. Like holy shit. I know I have a thing for "dark", crazy Latina chicks anyway, but daaaamn. Melissa Santos is smoking hot. Evilisse just might have the best legs/booty combo. The least sexy chick in the company is ironically the one with sexy in her name.

4. Dario Cueto is one of the worst actors in wrestling history. Period. But he's still fun to watch.

5. Mil Muertes is ridiculous. So fucking badass. I didn't really dig him in the first season, but these hoss wars with Matanza have really won me over.

holy shit, why did you guys not tell me about this? I've never been a Thor guy since I've only seen his appearances in Avengers books and he's usually just annoying in those, but I'm 4 issues in and between the mythology, the writing, and the art this is not only my favorite run of a character I've never been a fan of but possibly one of my favorite runs period.
