    1. Poison mist smells like furniture polish. 2. The gland sometimes secrets through the skin if not released often enough. It's fairly straight-forward. Gary Hart had revealed in his book (the rare print version, not the manuscript that we all read online) that in times of peace, the ancient Japanese warriors who were modified to utilize it actually had a booming woodworking trade.

    The best thing about that... "movement" co-opting the red pills from the Matrix is the hidden layer underneath it all. The Matrix was written by two (at the time closeted) trans women and the most common form of estrogen for hormone replacement therapy in the late-1990s was premarin, and the most common dosage for premarin came in red pills. I'm sure you can connect the dots about what the Wachowskis meant and why I find how it got co-opted to be hilarious.

    @odessasteps @nofuture @Eivion @The Natural In my limited experience it seems to me that Kana is genuinely bubbly energetic and positive. She's definitely an Osaka lady and then some. You get all types in Osaka, but I bet she'd be a lot less goofy if she'd grown up in Kyoto or Fukuoka or somewhere. I also met Tajiri once, in the Cowboy Steakhouse near the old Osaka Pro arena. We got into a conversation and then I noticed that everyone was staring at us. Then I realized that out of politeness I had been speaking Japanese and he had been speaking English the whole time. That must have seemed crazy to the other customers. I really enjoyed meeting both of them. Haven't got a bad word to say about either one.

    Related to that idea - I absolutely adore the kid who loses his shit when Ron Simmons wins the title I remember when I cared about things...

    Yet another dude I have been lucky enough to meet a few times. He's got ties to the local Vancouver indie scene. They gave him work before he was a big name and so he often paid them back by coming up to work small shows for ECCW and Vancouver All Star in the early 2000s after he was well known for his work in ROH, Japan, and elsewhere. He always hung out at the after-parties and talked with everyone. Truly a good dude. Interesting, easy-going, laughs at your jokes... This was from the 2005 Pacific Cup after-party, if I remember correctly. The pic was snapped by my good friend, SLAM wrestling hall of famer Vicious Verne. If memory serves: We also sat at the same table with Bryan at the WrestleMania 21 watchng party (at Dropkick Murphy's?). I was impressed by his behaviour there. He was ramping up for his championship run n ROH, probably the biggest name and consensus best wrestler on the Indies, but he refused to be the center of attention. He kept turning the spotlight on other guys at the table, encouraging them to tell stories or reminding them of something the funny they'd done. The man just exuded generosity, consideration, and genuine warmth. When HBK and Angle went into that long and marvelous chain wrestling sequence, Verne quietly and 100 per cent accurately called every move, hold, and counter just before they executed it. Bryan noticed, and gleefully turned the spotlight on my old buddy. Afterward, I'd lamented to Verne that I had really wanted to get a picture with Bryan but had been afraid to look markish in front of the boys. A few weeks later, at the Pacific Cup after-party, Verne had a quiet word with Bryan and we arranged to sneak out and get a snapshot when nobody was looking. Dragon did everything in his power to put me at ease about it and then when we went back inside he was once again making sure that guys like Jesse Jimenez, Puma (TJ Perkins), and JJ Perez all got some attention and a chance to tell a joke or a story. He did that quietly and subtly. I only noticed because I was paying pretty close attention. I've been super lucky to meet a lot of very cool, nice, and fun people in the pro wrestling world. Bryan Danielson legit seems to be right up there as maybe the best dude and the biggest heart in the business. Literally could not be a nicer guy.

    Okay, here we go. Bret-Austin, Submissions Match. This match is widely cited as one of the best matches in Mania history and the angle that follows as a pivotal moment in where the WWF finally let go of the 80's. It's actually been a while since I've watched this, so let's see if it still holds up. (Spoiler: it does) The background is Austin had caught fire after he won King of the Ring, and as he rose up the card, though still nominally a heel, he was getting more and more cheers as the fans in WWF were revolting against everything being presented. Bret didn't like that. So he and Austin fought in MSG at Survivor Series and Austin just barely got beat. The WWF Championship had been tossed into chaos as Sid, Bret, Undertaker, and Austin had all been fighting over it since Survivor Series when Sid beat HBK for the strap. And yeah, Austin and Bret just despised each other. So now we're here, the middle of a blood feud, and Bret wants Austin out of his way, so he can fight for the WWF Championship and prove Austin to be a fraud. Austin's motivations can be summarized as "Fuck you." Hoo boy. Austin gets his famous glass shattering intro here, and Chicago greets him with, I'd say 75% cheers. Bret comes in, and the crowd is cheering him too.... so it's a de facto face vs face match, even though, and this is part of what makes this match great, BOTH guys wrestle the match as heels. The moment the bell rings, they attack each other, because there's no time for any of that posing bullshit. They almost instantly go into the crowd and fight all the way through a shockingly not-cleared-by-arena-security region. Like the two of them, and special ref Ken Shamrock, all have to physically push their way through the crowd to get to their next spots. (My god this would never happen in 2020 -- for various reasons.) They make it halfway up the first bowl when Austin clearly says stop and they do a spot and fight back down. The camera work here is especially bad because they've just got no way to actually shoot where they are. Also, I think the only reason they got Shamrock to ref was to muscle the goobers in the crowd out of the way for Austin and Bret. So we finally get back to the ring, and Austin takes over. Bret is selling everything with relish and making Steve look like a million bucks. I'm struck by how in just a year, Austin's moveset hasn't really changed, he's just hitting everything with more passion and it looks so much better. I'm wondering if that's on Steve being more motivated, or Bret being a better worker than Savio. Also, Austin's not a submissions guy, so he doesn't really have a lot to do here aside from his usual stuff, so why not add a notch of intensity or two. Frankly, I think the closest Austin came to actually winning was late in the match when he's choking out Bret with the mic cord. I will say, and it's a minor annoyance, but the "ropes force a break" rule really shouldn't be in play here, but they... alternatingly(?)... are. Bret, for his part, leads the dance very well when he's on offense. Rolling through his stuff, although, I will say, while he began the 5 moves, he never really finishes them, as Austin is countering everything too much. He does have a nasty ringpost Figure 4 that Austin is selling like he's getting his leg ripped off. Austin really is an underrated seller, because damn he is bumping all over the place here. Though, to be fair, this was pre-neck injury. Speaking of nasty bumps, he gets thrown into the railings behind the announcers and he is busted wide open. Austin really took his aspirin beforehand, because he is a bloody mess within a minute of the blade job. Even Bret seems disgusted at one point. And I should note, the crowd is getting disgusted by Bret too. So the end... and I think there's an argument to be made that THIS was what made his career.... Not "Austin 3:16". Steve has fought out of everything Bret has thrown at him. He even gets the sharpshooter on Bret at one point. Austin does the chokeout spot I mention above until Bret clocks him with the ring bell. So Bret decides enough's enough, and locks in and I mean locks in the Sharpshooter. Austin is screaming in pain. Blood is pouring down his face, as the most famous shot of his career happens. The crowd is going nuts. Austin *ALMOST* breaks the Sharpshooter, but Bret just leans back into it. Austin tries one last time to break, and passes out from the pain. The fight is stopped, Shamrock has to pull Bret off Steve. Bret celebrates. Austin is dead on the floor, having never surrendered. Man oh man what a fucking match. Bret celebrates for a little bit, but doesn't really like the reaction he's getting, so fuck Austin. He's gonna get him some more. He beats on Austin until Shamrock pulls him off again and threatens to beat Bret himself. Bret thinks about it for a second, but basically says fuck you to Shamrock, Austin, the crowd, and everyone else there, and leaves. Steve slowly regains consciousness. He pushes off Shamrock. He stunners a ref. And he walks out on his own two feet. Beaten. Battered. And beloved. The double turn is complete, and so is my ride. End of Day 38.

    16 years "together as a couple" with Helen. 2 houses, 3 continents, 1 wedding, 2 cats, 1 daughter. Wouldn't change a day...even the bad ones. Because we're at each other's sides. She's my strength, common sense, and I'm her frivolity and adventure.

    Since I was talking about tape trading earlier in the thread... There was a small group of us in Puerto Rico who were in the tape trading community. One of them was close to Victor Quiñones and did some photography for IWA. Quiñones gave him a ton of merch. from IWA JAPAN, FMW, W★ING and various other Japanese promotions. Quiñones, also gave him the IWA/W★ING pilot show from Puerto Rico that is now up on YouTube, but at the time, Quiñones was the only one who had that tape. He then give it to that friend of ours and he sent my friend a copy of it and then of course he began trading it and now it's up on YouTube. I know it's meaningless knowledge, but I'm bored and I thought I'd share the origin of that footage with you folks.

    You know - ephemera: Items of limited or temporary use and/or value, collectible and rare usually because people rarely save them, many having sentimental attachment or niche interest, often mass produced & made of paper or other disposable material. I went through one of my boxes of wrestling crap, Wow, I like my stuff!! I hope you dig it too. Please post your own. UTC Pavillion, Chicago IL 1992 - I am a big fan of swiping posters and whatnot, I have rarely ever bought a poster but stuff like this accrue a sense of time and place for me and thus sentimental value. How many other people took , let alone saved one of these. Plus, I don't like a Sting championship and this was a good match. My roommate totally groped Nikita Koloff's buttocks when he was thrown into the protective guardrail in front of us. Yeah, my pal Vinnie and I went to this. No Dusty but we also got the amazingly shitty debut of Lisa Sliwa, wife of NYC pest & Guardian Angel founder Curtis Sliwa. Bam Bam impressed, and I saw a youthful Paul H. when he was a fresh-faced radio DJ, photog, club promoter and go-getter as well as Larry Sharpe in a tracksuit. Anyway, I hope you were amused. - RAF p.s. Photobucket can eat a bag of pig anuses. Does anyone have a recommendation for a free hosting service? Does anybody use Google's?

    I may very well drop dead of a heart attack if Okada shows up as the mystery man in the ladder match. Part of it will be the shock and excitement, and part of it will be from being overweight with a history of cocaine abuse. At least, I'll have died happy.

    I mean, you're usually a dumb fuck and hands down the worst poster on this board since Cinbernetico got Cashed, but tripling down on this dumb shit because you think you're dunking on people is just sad. Its sad. Get help, I'm serious. You have an issue if you hate a wrestler this much that you'll get this unhinged over a nothing troll story.
