Slater AND Murdoch? Shit. Talk about a DVDVR dream team.

Or a WCW midcard team.

i loves me some Slater and Murdoch, but, man, I did not like the Flatliners.  Bad mix of two guys way past their primes with skill sets more suited for the territory era that the tv era.

No spoilers, but lord do I fucking hate it how a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hits at the exact moment anyone gets punched in a WWE ring.

True, but both guys got a pass from me at the time for being so frickin' entertaining for years. And you gotta admit peak-era Slater and Murdoch would be a DVDVR dream team. Besides, my buddy just liked the idea that "GET 'EM, DICK" applied to either guy. This was his downfall, however.

I thought it was just my stream freaking out. That was probably shaky cam at its worst.

The guy who made that YouTube video about what happens when you have snow or confetti on screen should do another one with the WWE shaky cam crap.

That's on par with the "Lets go Jimmy" chant at one of ROH's spring 2006 shows during the four way match between Jimmy Rave, Jimmy Jacobs, Jimmy Yang, and Delirious.

Slater and Murdoch were called The Hardliners. They weren't Chicago med school students conducting experiments to see what lies beyond death. Underrated movie.

That... would've been par for the course in 91 WCW.  And probably damn entertaining as well.

Gah.  I even googled the name because Flatliners didn't sound right and I still got it wrong.  My bad .

It's all good. Maybe all this useless wrestling trivia in my head will pay off some day.

These Dicks approve as well. 

I thought Tank Toland was great as part of Sweet N Sour Inc. in ROH.

There is a tag team called the Flatliners in Ontario. Asylum and Matt Burns. They're pretty good and nearly won season 3 of "The Amazing Race Canada"

See but to me it works in this scenario.  Mustafa hates America so the chant would enrage him.  Bulldog, while not American, loves America and is inspired by the chant.

 

That was always my way of rationalizing it.

It must have got to him in the end though...I remember Jim Cornette ranting about fans chanting "USA" during Allied Powers matches as a reason why Davey Boy turned heel in 95

He really was. It was the stuff like him bullying Bobby Dempsey, just great fun.

Odds are that you're not. 

The writer for one clearly thought his joke was brilliant, hence his need to repeat it fourteen times.

If you didn't read the Observer update, NJPW put up the recent Ricochet-Will Ospreay match up on YouTube for freesies. It's just ab-so-lutely fantastic.
