OCTOBER 2015 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

I can't remember if it was while he was the Big Shot but I remember him trying to get "How do ya like me now?" over as a catch phrase, bless his heart

They even put him saying that at the beginning of his entrance music.  It was great because I knew exactly when to change the channel, go to the bathroom, or get a drink.

My main take away from when they did that segment was how double-awful it made their current announce team seem

 

Can't really argue with this. My question would be, who should replace them?

 

I think out of their available personnel, the best combo would be Cole, Regal, and Renee Young. Sadly Regal doesn't appear to be interested (can't imagine why else they would've taken him out of the booth in NXT), and Renee is stuck on host duty. She showed some promise in her limited NXT work, and I can't imagine giving her a chance to sharpen her skills on SD is a worse use of an announcer spot than throwing Jimmy Uso out there every week. Graves would be fine if he wasn't over-directed. He was great on NXT Kids, but it's tough to imagine him not becoming JBL v.2 on the main shows.

I think since his neck fusion surgery, Regal has not been in love with lots of talking.

Still better than naming his finisher the Hollycaust

Okay, so I'm *NOT* insane when I remember them using that name for like 2 weeks for the Falcon Arrow

 

It even got called that in at least one of the video games

If Dick is as good a trainer as he is a wrestler, it'll be a treat to see who comes out of his camp and gets shipped overseas.

Nope, that was a thing that happened.

If you have ever seen any Dreamers stuff, he helped train, most if not all, those guys.

IIRC, Holly said in his book that he didn't get the holocaust reference until after later on, when someone explained it to him.  Um... yeah.  Supposedly, the name was Russo's idea.  Holly hated using the falcon arrow regardless of what they called it.

He said he read a few books on the subject and that's why he thought it'd be offensive. But like you said, he hated the Falcon Arrow and thought of the Alabama Slam while watching a match where someone did the usual up and under corner spot. He thought it'd be cool to catch the person jumping over him and whip them to the mat and that's how the Alabama Slam was born. Vince wanted to call it the Alabama Slammer but Holly wanted the Alabama Slam. Holly said the announcers just called it the Alabama Slam so it worked out.

"They were calling my finisher 'The Hollycaust' but then I read 'The Age of Apocolypse' storyline and it turns out he was a really bad dude!"

That was like a seventeen-minute-long live-action Homestar Runner skit, so of course I absolutely loved it. 

 

New Day is like black millennial DX at this point, so I'm sure for some people, that video will be too much, but I am in that exact cultural demo, so I welcome more super-long videos of these guys acting like jackasses.

Congrats to Eve Torres and Rener Gracie on the birth of their daughter Raeven (pronounced "Haven," of course).

17 minute long New Day interview....

This gets put on USA and it will draw a 23.  

 

That's the greatest thing ever.

As always, the parents find out about something cool and kill it.

Also the time Holly and Billy Gunn teamed for a few weeks and their finish was "the Gunn Holly Bomb."  GHB for short.  Charming.

 

It's still better then when he teamed up with the other Gunn brother.

Two pages back now, but Crash's Styles Clash was called the Crash Landing. 

Also, WWE's 2015 is about to get worse because Cena is gone from Hell in a Cell until at earliest December 30 for personal reasons.

Vince coming out to "Obsession" was the absolute best, favorite part of that whole show. I was surprised they even used it, such a great little detail.
