  1. I was 10 when he first one the belt. I know by Mania 2 I was known around the playground as the kid who hated Hogan. I just couldn’t figure out why (1) he was always yelling at me and (2) why every match was him getting beat up until suddenly he decided it wasn’t going to hurt anymore and then the bad guys just kept punching him in the head anyway. I got tired of it quickly.
  2. When it comes to emotionally disliking a wrestler, it is Hogan by far for me. Never found his act entertaining (maybe the first few times I saw him) and even as a kid actively rooted against him every time just in hopes he would lose the belts and quit wrestling. I don’t really have a wrestler I refuse to watch. Randy Orton as a face comes close. But as far as non-wrestlers go I cannot stand to watch or listen to Justin Roberts. Everything about his look and voice makes me want to fast forward.
  3. Just remember it was written for Windham and Rotundo. Hogan stole it from them. Hope that helps.
  4. Lance Von Erich wrestled as a Von Erich in World Class for about a year and a half. I always remembered it being less than a year.
  5. I did not enjoy AEW at the beginning and gave up on it. After reading such positive reviews lately I’d like to give it another try. Is there a certain episode they started a good storyline in that I should use as a starting point?
  6. Is there a lineup floating for either Turning Point on Saturday or the Twitch show on Sunday? I just found out about them this morning and they are nearby. May try to see one of them.
  7. I don’t ask this to be argumentative, I ask as someone who turned off AEW half way into week two but really wants to get into it...in what ways has AEW been able to surprise you?
  8. For the life of me I do not remember Rip Taylor having a run with the WWF.
  9. No joke I was going to come out of lurking just to post the exact same thing (except I’m not a potty mouth).
  10. I'm a fan of the Iron Sheik documentary on Netflix. Once I got past the uncomfortabilty of watching the producers take advantage of him I really found myself rooting for him.
  11. According to their 9/30/16 financials live events make up 19.8% of their revenues ytd. Television is 32.4% and the network accounts for 25.7%.
  12. This was the first time I've watched Impact since attending the Bethlehem tapings back in January. Watching Matt's promo from the top of the staircase all I could think was that his Mark Guleen impression was spot on. #obscurememphisreference
  13. Sad to hear of his passing, glad to see others with fun memories of him. I have one memory that sticks out. He worked an Indy at a local fair in 1990. I forget who he was wrestling but he was the heel and I, in the front row, was probably the only person rooting for him. He was getting the crowd riled up. I forget exactly what I said but I shouted something in favor of him and he yelled back, "yeah, listen to this kid!"
  14. I'm not going to defend TNA's booking of their World Title this week, but seeing Matt and Reby walk out from behind the big screen tonight followed a few steps behind by Tyrus carrying their son *almost* made up for it. I'm hoping they discussed EC3 on commentary throughout the night because him not appearing in front of the crowd was a big letdown. There were several chants for him and he was nowhere to be found. I want to presume he's being held off to sell injuries from the Last Man Standing match and then he can return to reclaim what is rightfully his and emphasize the fact that he st
  15. They just taped the Last Man Standing match. Matt wins the title with the help of Tyrus in a double turn. I should add: I think they were going for the double turn. Hardy definitely went heel with a post match promo. I'm assuming EC3 turns by default. He tried to get a face reaction as he left the ring.
