OCTOBER 2015 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

I go to house shows here in Colorado on the regular. I never go to the Denver RAWs, but the house shows here are always super fun. Next one is November 1st and I'm taking my nephew for his fifth birthday. It'll be his second live show.

Does anyone know of a place where I can get a list of attendance figures from roughly the last 18 months of WWE shows?

That Bobby Heenan fucking rules.

Hopefully it's a Heenan Family four pack with Bobby, Rude, Perfect, and Andre.

That Kevin Owens figure is fucking absurd.  If he actually looked like that he'd be world champion by now.

MAF is the preferred nomenclature.

Rey Misterio beat PJ Black & Ricochet last night in Mississauga, ON to become the new Destiny Wrestling champion! I couldn't make the show but I heard the match was pretty epic. And they did 500+ attendance...another sellout crowd.

You not being to talk until after being able to buy things is strange, but has no baring on this whatsoever

Dixie would put a bullet between the eyes of the endangered mountain gorilla if it meant drawing 500 people.

i have been making an effort to be less angry and aggressive. So I will try explain my previous post in greater detail and hope you simply have problems with basic reading comprehension.

I have been collecting wrestling dolls/figures/totems since I was a very small child. So small I could not even talk. 

Hopefully this clarifies things for you. .

Oh, I knew what I meant, I was just fucking with you like all of us do with each other on this board in good fun.

The term action figure was coined in 1964 and the first wrestling figures I had were in 1984 still using that term despite being immobile hunks of rubber.  

 

Were there any wrestling toys prior to the 1984 LJN WWF stuff?  I feel like there should have been something but don't recall ever hearing about that stuff.  Mego wrestlers would have been tremendous, but there wasn't really a national license that would have worked before they died (I have some Mego-style luchadores that came out way later- but they fucked up the articulation and gave them He-Man sort of arms almost).

Speaking of the aforementioned Rey/Ricochet/Black match, how's this for a contrived Davey-esque spot?

Yup....pretty fucking awful.

 

I give it 3 out of 5 Daveys...

You know, I think it would have looked cooler if the person with the phone was anywhere but directly behind PJ Black and showing him just standing there doing nothing the whole time.  At least argue with the ref or fans or something.

Those figures, a two pack of Sting and Warrior makes sense (although it's a Past, Present Future thing, suggesting that it's a historical wrestler anda current one, even though the two very much contemporaries), a two pack of Cena and Austin makes sense. Pillman and Ambrose, though? If it was Loose Cannon Pillman fair enough, they're similar, but it's Bengals tights Flyin' Brian.

 

I know they're both from Cincinatti. I don't think that that's that big a deal.

Watching it over and over and dissecting that video adds to the level of ridiculousness. But if any of y'all were there live, you would've popped like a 12 year old girl at a Ricky Martin concert. Fact.

At first glance I thought you said a "Ricky Morton concert."
