  1. I got "Drawing Heat" and "Long Days and Short Pays" today. Anyone else read them?
  2. How can EVOLVE draw such poor crowds? Do they actually advertise their shows in the towns etc?
  3. WTF is going on with international football tournaments? If Qatar can't host the World Cup in it's usual June-July slot then they should never have been given the tournament in the first place. Did they state this when they bid for it? The world cup in winter is a completely fucking stupid idea. And don't even get me started on Euro 2020 being held in thirteen cities in thirteen countries. Another fucking idiotic idea.
  4. I'm not sure that Brodus is as big as the giants of the 80s and early 90s were. He looks huge because there's fewer big guys around these days.
  5. Regarding fat guys, would the likes of Akeem, Big Bossman, Jerry Blackwell, King Kong Bundy pass wellness tests these days? Not regarding drugs, regarding cardiovascular fitness?
  6. Would WWE ever release a Sgt Slaughter DVD set? It's be pretty great if they did, the feud and matches with Patterson from early 80s WWF, the feud with he and Kernodle vs Steamboat and Youngblood from JCP, back to WWF and his feud with Iron Sheik and the whole patriotic gimmick, GI Joe tie in, his run in AWA, then his heel turn and world title run in WWF. I see him as one of the few classic guys they have left who they could produce a marketable DVD of. Duggan would be another one.
  7. Why? He'd do a far better job of whoever is doing it at present. 1989 WCW was awesome.
  8. I was mildly disappointed with the Hansen book. I kind of knew what I was getting after watching his shoot interview though.
  9. Anyone read "Drawing Heat"? Not the Larry Matsik book, but the one by Jim Freedman?
  10. Only anomaly on it is that I don't think Owen and Zeus were ever in the promotion at the same time.
  11. What was the last (original) ECW card in Philadelphia but not at the ECW arena? During the PPV era did they ever consider running a larger arena in the city? Is there anything there in size between the arena and the Spectrum or First Union centre? Seems weird that after their first PPV they never ran another one in their home town.
  12. I read both Bruno Lauer's and JJ Dillon's books recently, both very good, A- or high end second tier, depending on how you rate things, I'd put off getting Dillon's for ages due to finding him boring on shoot interviews etc but I really enjoyed his book, particularly the stuff about working in the WWE office in the late 80s/early-mid 90s. Lauer's is a really good read, talk about someone coming up from the absolute bottom. I didn't realise he started in the early 80s. The stories about Sid are pretty terrifying. Oh I also read Booker T's which is free on kindle at the moment for some reason. Can't complain about it at that price but it really hardly touches on his wrestling career.
  13. Who's the guy between Savage and Windham? And is that Dino Bravo between Valentine and DiBiase? Looks nothing like him but he's got blond hair and pale blue trunks so I assume it is.
  14. I think Sean Waltman said they got a bonus for WMX, but it wasn't what it would have been if they had had the match. He talked about it on his Timeline 1994.
  15. How about Dusty rotating HIMSELF out?!? It wasn't the Horsemen that were the problem, they never stopped being over.
  16. Wow I forgot how young Shane looked back then.
  17. I don't think NJPW does pay anything like the same as WWE pays their top guys. But for Devitt, he's a fairly top guy in NJPW, and he has to have serious doubts about how he'd be pushed in WWE. He should stay put unless WWE are offering him a decent downside guarantee.
  18. Oh dear God. Mom charged with homicide after giving birth in sports bar bathroom, dumping baby in toilet before returning to watch wrestling match.
  19. Cardiff City 3, Manchester City 1. Wow.
  20. Greg Gagne was in the match so it really had to be AWA.
