  1. In hindsight: * - Wrath had most of the offense in that match against Nash. Wasn't a squash per se. He controlled most of the match, then Nash cut him off, hit his finish and it was over. * - Made sense in the context of the bigger story - Nash conquers smaller streak en route to challenging the biggest streak of them all at the time. Just wasn't played up well enough at the time. * - Bigger issue was how little he did afterwards. A nothing feud with Bam Bam. * - Wouldn't have been such a big deal had Nash not been the booker at the time. I really liked him in the WWF too, and thought he was underused.
  2. Does anyone else have a claim to the record of most unsuccessful world title shots on PPV (without winning one) than Davey Boy Smith? * - Rumble 92 * - beats Vader by DQ at Slamboree 93 * - loses to Shawn/Diesel at IYH * - beats Diesel by DQ at IYH * - loses to Bret at IYH * - draw with Shawn at IYH (technically two given the issues with the feed) * - loses to Shawn at KOTR * - loses Six Pack Challenge at Unforgiven 99
  3. Think Bret mentioned it in his book as well, about them being in Japan, and them stopping the tour bus for it to be sorted out. In the context that Andre is forever remembered as a racist, rather than murdered by Hulk Hogan, whilst Bad News becomes Nth America's Invader II is sort of a weird ideal.
  4. What if Bad News Brown not only pulls a gun on Andre the Giant calling him a nigger, but actually blows him away on the tour bus?
  5. I vaguely remember Val Venis helping Austin fend off the Corporation to get a stunner for his troubles also.
  6. As an obese male, I can get a sexy photo with Virgil for only $10???
  7. Matches where guys who were once something, were just shit on. Their big finish no sold, get no offence in, and then maybe even beat down after. Hogan vs. Yoko was a pretty good example of this - kicks out of the leg drop, and gets squashed after the match. Not seen again in the WWF for 9 years. That Warrior beatdown in 1996 before he gets fired at the hands of Camp Cornette is pretty epic too. To some degree, Vader/Koloff might qualify here too. Vader takes all of Koloff's stuff and beats him fairly clean regardless. Never seen as a big deal like that again.
  8. Sir, I respect your lifestyle choices. I would raise its hand to all four corners for a cheap pop, and I would even throw in a few "This guy!" finger points, and I sure as hell wouldn't clothesline it from behind either.

    I saw Richie Sambora completely trashed on stage a few months ago. I can see why.

    I believe they made a pact with the other band members post Bon to not replace each other. I remember going to see them in 2008. Broke my leg playing cricket that day. Wasn't interested in giving up a ticket I paid hundreds for. Hobbled along on crutches. Absolutely hated it. Dickheads everywhere. Still remember the guitar solos though. Made it more than worth it.
  11. Could have done it very easily. Vader shows up. Then Sid. Shawn/Ahmed/Warrior vs. Sid/Vader/mystery partner at the IYH PPV that they pretty much had this as the main anyway. Third man turns out to be Bret. Sure if you play with debuts a little bit longer, you can have any number of Foley, Ron Simmons, Pillman, Windham, Dustin Rhodes and Stunning Steve Austin as the next guys who debut as well.
  12. Watching thru some old Warrior Youtube clips made me wonder whatever happened to Amanda Ultimatewarrior.
  13. Top 10 Warrior memories? 1) Warrior/Savage Mania 7 *daylight* 2) Warrior making the save at Mania 8 3) Warrior, LOD and KVE teaming at SS 4) The Papa Shango stuff 5) The Jake vignettes 6) Hogan at the Skydome 7) HTM match 8) HHH squash 9) Slaughter title match 10) Andre squash.
  14. Can't help but wonder if Vince views this as breach of contract as well.
  15. Fairly certain there's at least one copy of a Great American Bash 85 tour fancam where Ric Flair comes out to a mashup of Fanfare For The Common Man, Easy Lover and Niggas In Paris.
  16. Next X-Men film, he needs to be cast as Juggernaut. Then he keeps the suit of armour, and does an unstoppable momentum gimmick.
  17. His wives probably didn't think so. He was Mormon?
