Another Attempt at a MARCH Wrestling Thread

I'm really surprised he didn't wait until after Mania. Doesn't everyone get a big Mania bonus? I'm sure they would have used him in the Andre Battle Royal at least.

Give credit where credit is due. That's "Corona" by The Minutemen.

I was half expecting him to be eliminated by Ellsworth

Swagger not waiting until after WM means we're that much closer to Jake Hager showing up in the Impact Zone.

We got until June 13th brother. I'd like to see him work out some ROH, New Japan, CMLL deal. But still be able to work Indies.

At least we know Stamp is booked for the funeral.

I tried to resist making the joke, but I couldn't help myself.

Rusev isn't getting a push because he doesn't bring anything to the table other guys aren't already bringing.

He's not as big as the really big guys, and he's not great on the mic. He's got an attractive valet, but that could be anyone they put her with. Sure, he's strong, but you can only give so many guys "they're strong" as a gimmick at one time -  Lesnar? Cena? Show? Mark Henry? Cesaro? Big E? And as somebody said, the "evil Russian" gimmick (the only thing remotely unique about him) might not be a great call politically right now.

If Rusev was going to make it to the main event, he'd have done it by now. That ship has sailed.

You guys acting like Bunkhouse Buck and Big Hoss Jake winning this year's G1 Tag League isn't gonna be lit.

So that's what the whole '30 days with no weight lifting' deal was about. Trying to heal it non-surgically... shoulders are tricky though. I healed my torn shoulder without surgery (or pain medication for that matter*) and it took two years**. Although I didn't actually stop lifting at all, just eased up a bit.

* I bought a pack of 16 paracetamol once. I had to throw them out, they went out of date before I used them.

** I was already in my 40s at the time though. Rusev is still under 30*** I think, so he should heal faster.

*** I checked, he's actually 32. Born December 25th 1984. Wrestling Jesus!

Hell, I just had my entire shoulder replaced in December as the entire joint died (had lymphoma in 2009) I really miss powerlifting.

Yeah - the original story I saw said 91

And eventually i was like "That can't be right"

And then I got lazy and didn't edit my post.

I blame Grado

Re: Rusev.

I get the feeling this Vince fella didn't really care for foreigners all that much.

I can't think of any particularly good promo, interview, or the like. Maybe during the love quadrangle? Otherwise it's felt like they had Lana do the talking for him, but I'll admit I may be mistaken about this part.

Rusev is a guy that's got a lot of comedic talent, but that doesn't necessarily translate to being a good promo. He's sort of in a weird spot where he's too good of a worker to be a comedy wrestler, but his serious work isn't good enough to be a top guy. He'll probably end up with a career arc somewhere between Jack Swagger and Sheamus, which isn't the worst thing ever.

At the end of yoga class tonight the instructor said "What you learn on the mat you can apply to life". Apparently yoga is pro wrestling too.

Is your instructor DDP?

What? Someone had to ask.

No one's ever accused Swagger of being a genius.

On the other hand that might show just how miserable he was and how much he hated being there.

The Kota Ibushi fireworks thing was just on @Midnight and Chris Hardwick said "Kota is 34, and his official age of death will be 34."
