  1. Soul Train Jones was solid in the ring back then. Then I wasn’t the biggest WWF fan but Piper cheering on Virgil in that match at that moment is right up there with Hogan slamming Andre in the minds of those fans, even though it went flat down the line. Wiki says he had a degree in math? And taught highschool? He looked as much like a teacher as Ole did a wrestler, Ole of course being on the GOAT list of wrestlers who look like math teachers along with Arn, Larry Z, and more otherwise bad ass mfers. Also was the Sting injury match Ole’s last match? That would be even more ironic than the teacher thing for a reason that’s…..ironic
  2. I just heard about Ole. RIP. He was the 1 mentally stable guy who did not give a f*^% what anybody thought about him which I like.
  3. I’ve only ever seen the word “casual” in this context on internet message boards. To me it was a compliment because it meant “person who doesn’t know as much about this subject and doesn’t spend as much time here because you’re usually somewhere with girls” lol!
  4. WCW could have got by filling 3 hours doing just this if the wrestlers were behind it. That would have involved selling and doing business so that obviously wasn’t happening. Furthermore it never occurred to anybody in the first place. Whenever it did happen it was for some other reason like to punish Flair or to give Goldberg another one for the streak.
  5. I read that it was a neighbor who heard Frankie, and tried to get in but couldn’t. Frankie was saying “let me out.” Ugh…but I promise that bird’s in heaven and will be there to tell Koko that it’s ok. I had a small animal for a long time and I won’t explain but I promise.
  6. I don’t know how I missed this but I just read about Frankie the Macaw’s gruesome, sad death in 2002. I didn’t know he was always the same bird, or that he was Koko’s normal pet first before he was even in the WWF. That means he was with Koko through it all, every night for all those years.
  7. Michael Hayes was definitely trying to look more dorky than cool at times to get heat, and he did that as well as he did everything else. To do that you have to look like you’re still trying to look cool or tough or whatever the heel says he is. Hayes did that well too. For anybody doubting that that’s a thing, Jim Cornette recently said that BPP did that. He said he’d still mess up talking, but then roll with it as if he’d messed even worse. Then do it again next week.
  8. What’s Rip Rodgers doing? I saw on YouTube that he has new interviews up and I don’t think he’s ever had any. Just now I replied to a comment he left on FB and maybe he’ll see it since the OP only had 3 replies altogether.
  9. He doesn’t know it, but he was the incidental embodiment of WCW. He was a wrestler who was given a ring name that could have been the name of a normal person, like a plumber, and told to go out there and get over sometime in the 3 hour of Nitro vs a wrestler nobody cared about like that’s the easiest way to get over. If that didn’t work lose to Goldberg.
  10. I think they’ve both said their best matches were from back then (didn’t say which) but they don’t repeat it because the 1989 match has immortalized them and they know it lol!
  11. I’ve never seen this show, only the 1 match that has always been talked about from this show. What bothered me the most about Starrcade 89 was the ref’s crap job at selling the finish to the Road Warriors/Steiners. That means I didn’t have a problem with the finish. I had a problem with the ref just counting and declaring a winner like it was no big deal, like that kind of thing happened all the time and it was on to next. But apparently WCW did alot of this that year??? Wtf
  12. That would be giving Billy Jack a whole lot of..I don’t want to say credit…but Billy Jack has done his share of steroids and other drugs. He’s also lost people too. I believe his stories about child abuse which isn’t the same as concussions but both things can royally fuck up a man’s brain. Even if he’s full of crap there it’s no question that there was always something wrong with his head for some reason. I could also see him coming up with the scheme he might have come up with yes, which is something Benoit also did.
  13. I’ve been thinking about Billy Jack and his situation is right up there with Chris Benoit. He freaking shot his wife. Maybe it wasn’t as much of a shock to hear about this coming from him and maybe he has a whole other shit list of things, which makes it seem like less of a deal but is there much else really that comes close? The answer is yes I know but that also doesn’t make this any less of a tragedy IMO. Also this list of what else isn’t that long. I feel sorry for the guy and I always have for similar reasons that I felt sorry for Chris Benoit. I’m not necessarily excusing him either which is a discussion we’ve had about many tragedies but I thought I would go ahead and say that before he dies and it sounds like I’m looking back with rose colored glasses. He can’t have long himself.
  14. Legit scary midcard WCW stables were always a thing
  15. I’m a huge fan of a certain HBK vs Hogan if you couldn’t guess. HBK was like a cartoon Rambo in that match. He wasn’t a turdhead anymore like Rambo wasn’t a killer anymore. Then somebody actually deserved it came along and tried to fuck with him again and he said hold my beer. I hate that phrase but it’s perfect here lol!
