JUNE WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

I just got a text alert from Bleacher Report TeamStream that said "WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson reveals he is gay!"

Um.... Am I missing something here???

So how did the legends sell it? Shrug their shoulders and go "Yeah, and...?"

Legends House finale

Yeah, but wasn't this "revealed" like a hundred years ago??

JR saying "He's single, fellas!" on Raw in 1998 was a pretty big clue.

Um, Monsoon with "Pat Patterson go behind" wasn't exactly subtle, in retrospect.

And didn't Batista talk about it publicly too when he did an interview with a gay magazine?

FWIW I never understood any of that "Terry Garvin school" stuff until much later.

Why would any company want to keep around dead weight that either ran their course or they see no future in? This happens in departments and companies everywhere. It will open up some more time and space for new people to get time. They gave Aksana a lot of time over the years and, as of a few months ago, she couldn't execute a knee drop without nearly blinding one of their most visible female personalities. She brings nothing to the table at all, aside from being easy on the eyes.

MVP has been pulled from the Slammiversary main due to a torn meniscus.

Also, during Over the Edge 98 when he was doing the ring intro for Brisco and talking about Brisco Bros Autobody, JR sarcastically said, "well we know who does the rear end work there..."

 I think you're a really good guy.

 

You're wrong, but I appreciate the sentiment.

I think its more of a thing where even though everyone knows and he never tried hiding it, Pat just never publicly said he was gay.

That's the wrong guy getting pulled from the title match with an injury. They better hire Teddy Long for the night to turn it into a tag team match.

I've got an old Coliseum tape where Sunny and Sable start fighting on the outside of the ring so Patterson (who's reffing) goes out to break it up.  JR makes a crack about all of the queens of the WWF being outside the ring.

The best "holla holla" tag match was actually made by Vickie. It went:

Rhodes Bros vs Rollins/Reigns

Rhodes Bros/Punk vs Shield

Rhodes Bros/Punk/Usos/Rey vs Shield/Wyatts

IIRC the whole thing ended up being an hour long.

Could Scott Norton, if built up correctly, have made a good WCW champion? I grew up with NJPW and he always impressed the hell out of me. Seeing him in play such a tiny role in WCW later on was weird to me. That said, I have no idea whether he was any good on the mic. But, even if that were the case, if you gave him a mouthpiece, could he have been a 'good' champion?

 

I doubt it.There was only a small window between Vader and Goldberg who were both way better as monster aces, and he didn't compare favorably to Giant or Nash who filled most of that void either. Even though Norton was better in the ring, he wasn't as impressive physically and was completely overshadowed in the charisma department by those two. His WCW ceiling was probably something close to Meng. Actutally, that would've been a great feud to see who was the world's toughest midcarder.
