Damn you, Phil, an old man was telling a wrestling story.

The story asked for at the end of the May thread:

We were there cheering for the heels, a Bad Idea at Smoky Mountain Wrestling. We wound to a fever pitch, warming up with a little Tammy Sytch sexual harassment - one of us, a truly creepy-looking dude, kept shouting "come here, Tammy!" during the whole match. We progressed to trying to convince the Rock and Roll Express that each one was better than the other one and that the other one was gonna stab him in the back imminently.

Then the main event: The Gangstas vs. The Thugs. Match hadn't started and we were cheering for the Gangstas, throwing up the X and just lighting into Tracy Smothers like mad, and he was giving us shit back, we were all pointing fingers at each other and this chick a row or two in front of us is a little peeved we're booing her boy Tracy Smothers. She's cursing us at this point - we never cursed at any point during the whole night, so we were like "what the hell?"

So, here comes the icing on the cake - Tracy tosses his Confederate flag bandana to a lucky fan. The chick reaches for it and fails to snag it. One of my buddies snags it instead. He proceeds to rub his crotch with it.

As you can imagine, this sent chick into a FRENZY. She was cussing us, flipping us off, getting ready to come over the row of chairs to get to us. One of us, stupidly, flips her off back. This sends previously silent boyfriend into a RAGE, and he's coming back our way.

At least he thinks he is, 'cause one of Johnson City, Tennessee's finest snatched his ass up in a chokehold that looked a lot like a Tazmission, and guy got escorted out with a quickness, chick behind him.

We "holy shit"ted to each other for a bit, then kept cheering for the Gangstas.

So, I watched the Ricochet/Ospreay match today at work.

The flippy/floppy/spot-fest nature, while not my thing didn't irritate me. I get it.

However, was Ricochet really doing a leg slap on his chops?

CHOPS MAKE CHOP SOUNDS! NO NEED FOR LEG SLAP!

Flippy dudes leg slap. That's what they do. It's like wondering why Abdullah has to bleed in EVERY match.

Says you. This is more enjoyably terrible than every LU vignette sans those that include Catrina because, I mean, come on, it's Catrina.

I am now watching out-of-context TNA clips on YouTube.

It's the wrestling equivalent of Conan's old "Walker: Texas Ranger" dial.

Couldn't be any worse than what Michael Damian farted out on The Young & The Restless back in the 1980s.

This is so amazing. No one tell me anything about this. I want to live in a world where this is real.

It's like a behind the scenes look at the Gathering of the Juggalos. 

 

 

The Abyss thing was weird too.

That's a YouTube rabbit hole I wish I'd stayed out of.

I was hoping the transformation would have brought back Joseph Park.

The only thing Decay is missing is a sentient can of Mountain Dew in a fedora to act as their mouthpiece.

JStout must have balls of steel for cheering Gangstas in SMW!

Also, that Hardy's video is definitely Wrestlecrap material

But....a chop....makes a slap noise already. This is like having a bloody nose.....then blading their nose.

It kinda did.  Like I said earlier, "rabbit hole."

I think jstout has decided to just blindly defend every aspect of that embarrassing match.

As I black person I can say with 100% surety that I always pulled for the Gangstas in Smoky Mountain. 

That being said, I'd rather drink beer with Tracy Smothers than New Jack.

But it only makes a loud slap noise if you really smack the shit out of your opponent. 

You do leg slaps when you throw knife edges to avoid doing this to the guy across the ring.:

This may be where I officially cross into "grumpy old man" territory. Chops are chops. It's pro wrestling and chops happen. I can forgive flippy spot fests. LEG SLAPS ON CHOPS ARE WHERE I MAKE MY STAND!

Stiffness for the sake of stiffness isn't much better than spots for the sake of spots. 

Wrestling should be the illusion of hurting your opponent.

Picture this - Kobashi and Sasaki slapping their legs during their epic chop stand-off. No marks on their chest but both have bright red thighs

Once again, I never once complained about the spotiness of the match. However, chops are chops. I've NEVER seen anyone try and "simulate" a chop. Shit, Hogan, who liked to work fairly light, would take a chop. Sure, there are some dude who chop WAY too stiff. However if ya don't want to take a chop or deliver one, leave them out of the match.
