  1. In defense of Chicago, you could always replace "Chicago" in this statement with "FSW".

  2. The key to it is understanding how awful Chicago and it's people are. They don't care about wrestlers. They don't care about athletes. They don't care about their teams winning or losing. They only care about themselves. The Chicago hivemind has one sole collective thought: how can we make it about us? As someone from Chicago I'd say that's a fair bit of generalizing and stereotyping on your part. Just about everyone I associate with is mainly interested in the athletes they cheer doing well, their teams doing well, and not so much in themselves in relation to their interests. Sure, there may be a vocal majority who are loud enough that they present that image of Chicago, but the vocal majority is very rarely in the right when it comes to presenting a negative view on a city. As someone from Chicago, I'd say: Don't feed the fucking troll.

  11. Ok late in the month but the Missing Link pic immediately triggered.. him and Nancy. Also, to the Hogan haters, idk if you are young or just the brought up to hate /Apter esque hipster fans,but just think,. If it wasn't for Hulk Hogan 70% of u wouldn't have any idea of wrestling let alone this board. He's not that bad, and I know we do this all the time, but look up any Japan Hogan. Finally,Two words..... KING BOOKAH

  12. Trish and Lita were on another level of hotness here, both polar opposites in terms of character as well which made them a great fit for each other. Albert circa 2000 seems like a bad person to work a complicated knocklelock sequence with. That little episode seems to provide the theme for the match, which is mostly really sloppy, but the crowd is hot enough and there's a fair bit of drama to keep it interesting. The guys in crowd are super in to the idea of Lita vs Trish, and the girls love them some Jeff. Matt throws some great punches, even back in 2000. Big pop for Taz, this crowd seems pretty great. Considering it was Taz's return match, Al Snow got a lot in on him, and looked better a lot of the time. There wasn't much to this, pretty much just a sprint through a bunch of moves, albeit some cool looking ones including Taz's sweet head and arm suplex. Al had some nice looking punches, but I'd have prefered a squash. Being used to WWE in 2014, it's mental to see old footage with guys casually beating up girls. This was mostly a bunch of moves again, but Eddie and Perry do it way better than Al and Taz. Highlight had to be Saturn somehow managing to clothesline Chyna through the Spanish announce table. In fairness, the finishing run was pretty exciting but Saturn has little to no charisma to get the crowd in to it. Bradshaw cuts a pretty great pro-Texas promo on Edge and Christian, namedropping the Von Erichs, Dick Murdoch and the Freebirds amongst others. This was really fun for a short match, since going back and watching a bunch of pre-JBL stuff I'm getting to think that Bradshaw was actually pretty damn good the whole time. Had they won the belts here, the crowd would have gone mental, but we just get a lame DQ finish. Decent match though, Simmons wasn't much but he was kept to the bare minimum. The E&C promo referencing JFK was mental, that would never even be suggested as an idea now. Rikishi vs Val Venis was the best match on the show so far, Val pinballed himself into the cage a bunch early which looked pretty great. Rikishi did his somewhat trademark somersault off of a clothesline, which seems a little ridiculous but always look really impressive. Not as impressive as him walking along the top of the cage and then jumping off the top, but still pretty awesome. Lita's run-in was some nice closure from earlier in the night too. I really dug Undertaker vs Angle, the vignettes throughout the night were so much fun and Angle was so much better in my eyes during 2000 than he was in his latter years. His legwork was pretty basic, but consistant and Taker sold well for him throughout. The finish was a little anticlimatic as I thought Angle would counter the second chokeslame attempt but it just kind of ended there. Still, this was lots of fun and made me want to dig up some more old Angle stuff, both matches and goofy vignettes/promos. I really liked Triple H vs Chris Jericho, although it may have gone on a few minutes too long. This was only the second Last Man Standing match in WWE history, and so it was more about selling and emotion rather than tons of big bumps leading to 9 count. HHH was really mobile, his quad injury the next year clearly fucked him up something fierce as he was bumping way more for Jericho here than he would do as a heel just a couple of years on. It's a laboured point by now,but still pretty shocking in retrospect to see that amount of blood in a WWE match, or indeed any match. Jericho put on a pretty awesome babyface performance, and I like that the finish wasn't one of either guys main moves, but it still worked as the perfect killshot. Looked pretty brutal for Jericho to take too. Main event is a pretty good match, but very much of it's time - I really don't see them running a big title match on a pay per view with this much outside interference any more. Foley coming down was kind of a buzzkill, since Benoit winning the title was kind of a big deal and the DQ finish was actually done really well I thought - sometimes it's pretty obvious what they're going for when a company tries a finish like this, but the crowd bought in to it hook, line and sinker. Having only seen his comeback matches recently, I'd forgotten how fast and athletic Rocky was. People's Elbow still sucks though, no matter when the footage is from. I liked a show a bunch, although it wasn't as greast as I remember it being from my repeated borrows of the VHS from the library back in the day. Triple H vs Chris Jericho was easily the best match, and I definitely came out of the show with a new appreciation for early Kurt Angle. Cage match rocked as well, and it was nice to see most of the mid card matches being over with the crowd whereas I can't imagine anyone giving a shit about the 2014 equivalent of Al Snow vs Taz.

  14. Dee Snider (right) My homey Kevin wanted to go to the con and couldn't, asked me to get him Haruo Nakajima's autograph. He was Godzilla in Destroy all Monsters and a few other ones. They said "Hey, photo is free" and of course, I had to send this one to the Kevster.

  15. And it's over. Amazing they'd save their first ever 8 game regulation losing streak until there were only 14 games left. Also amazing to think 2 weeks ago they had a 89% chance to make the playoffs *WITH HOME ICE ADVANTAGE* & are now 5% chance to make it at all. Even winning out won't make much of a difference at this rate.

  18. I'm not going to defend the New Age Outlaws in 2014, but they were far from the worst thing in wrestling, let alone the world, in 1998. The Insane Clown Posse was in the WWF in 1998, for Christ's sake.

  22. So tonight I was paid to be the color commentator for a local indy group. Got to call the action live ringside for cable access. For one night at least I can say I am a professional wrestling announcer. Only Matt Striker at the Royal Rumble could convey how I'm feeling right now.

  26. It's easy to feel nostalgia for Hulk now, but in 98-99 (especially after the fingerpoke)... and that was just a few years later. I think the general feeling about Russo and Hogan at the time is that he did what most of us wished we could, that it was the one good thing he did. Honestly, one of my favorite things about my evolving pro wrestling watching is that I've learned to accept and appreciate Hogan.

  27. I'd like to point out that the crowd WHAT-ing Hogan during his return to the WWF after nine years was a Chicago crowd. You know, not because I think it means anything, but maybe FSW can tell us how this ties into his Grand Theory of Chicago Crowds. Note: Hogan pointed out that Chicago fans ran Michael Jordan out of town to go play for the Wizards, which I'm sure FSW can expound upon as well.

  28. I wonder how the long the walk to the ring is going to be. My favorite is WM X-7. Austin's strut to the ring was so awesome for that. Daniel Bryan's will be so awesome for this.

  37. Seems like Cesaro is organically becoming a face anyway. You probably can't stop it now unless he purposely starts having shitty matches. It started with the giant swing and the fun-to-chant catchphrase, but now, just like the Shield, it's obvious to everyone how good he is and you can't boo a guy like that for long.
