Default Hardcore Wrestling would not have exist?

if there was no Dusty Rhodes, Terry Funk, Mick Foley/Catus Jack, Greg The Hammer Valentine this is just the few names that paved the way for what we know as Hardcore Wrestling































Do you think this is true? Your thoughts?















dhv303 thats very true















War Orton yes, Greg Valentine Dusty Rhodes along with Roddy Piper I would consider hardcore vets as well as actual wrestlers...

I think mainstream hard core wrestling would be a very different thing if it weren't for the contributions of the people you listed. But i think it would still have existed - someone was always going to take pro wrestling one step further, someone was going to push what was acceptable. It still happens now - IWA CZW etc etc all took hardcore even further - some would argue too far - but in order to do it someone had to have the idea and the willingness to give it a go.















Yes you mentioned several legends in hard core wrestling but if they hadn't done it someone else would have - maybe not the same - but it would still have happened.

Idk about Dusty and The Hammer but I agree with you on Terry Funk and Mick Foley.

i totally disagree































it still would have existed because it existed well before any of those guys you listed. japan has used weapon props, fire, and pyro in their shows for many years. you could actually argue hardcore wrestling was birthed from the japaneeses style of wrestling. other people would have done hardcore

Certainly, names like Dusty Rhodes, Terry Funk, Mick Foley/Catus Jack, Greg The Hammer Valentine paved the way for Hardcore Wrestling. However, I won't say that Hardcore Wrestleing wouldn't have exsisted. There where many other Wrestlers that made Hardcore wrestling what it is today.
