The only acceptable "bullpen car" should be entering on a chopper to Rollin'.

Spot on impression by Christian:

Fun one liner by Edge at the end as well.

Wrestling needs more deadly earnest/batshit crazy promos.

Remember before the Jack Swagger’s, and Sheamus’s of the world won world titles how winning the big one felt like a wrestler had just won a key to the city? Like they could walk into a restaurant, and get a table in seconds without reserving.

Again, breaking my personal rule to not link to anything on Reddit, but my god, I looked at this and laughed my ass off.

So...Ryback did an AMA. It went about as well as you can imagine. For starters, I don't think Ryback understood you have to reply to someone's question with your answer. He would just add new comments to the thread that were an answer to something, but reading them out of context is hilarious. And if he did actually reply to a question, it was nonsense.

Pretty sure the only title switch I’ve seen in person is Mero going over Faarooq in the IC-Title tourney. That same set of TV tapings was the TV debut of fake Razor/Diesel, I believe. Way better than any title switch! Ha!

Kenny Powers on Eastbound and Down coming out to Real American. In Mexico.

Retired MLB catcher JP Arencibia used Real American as his walk-up song.

Houston Astros outfielder Josh Reddick is a big WWE fan and has used several themes. This article is from 2017.

I vaguely recall them cutting to Reddick in the crowd at a Houston PPV following their world series victory. Though I may be misremembering.

People crap on Warrior's mic work- but inthink he was a friggin genius. His verbal sparring with Hogan leading up to Wrestlemania was stellar.

It's a very fine line between insane and genius.

Warrior was a wrestler in the 1980s, he knew how to navigate fine lines.

I think Jericho said it best "You don't know what he says, but you want to." Warrior had a lot of charisma and good delivery. His promos sound like the ravings of the maniac and that was the character.

Him and Sting ran some parallel paths as promos. Sting had this great energy and crazy promos, then he was taught the "right" way and was never the same as a promo. The same thing happened to Warrior, but worse. The more Warrior improved, the more charisma he lost.

Imagine a Warrior promo now, scripted by some creative writing graduate and micromanaged by Vince. Jeez

Only belt I ever saw change live was Chikara tag belts- but got to see that twice on one show.

Orton beating Bray and Brock over Goldberg at Mania 32. Buddy Murphy over Cedric at Super Showdown. Rhyno beating Jarrett for the WWA title. Think that's about it. Rest of that mania weekend is a bit of a blur.

I've seen both the WWF and NWA (Crockett) titles change hands.  I was at the Bash when Sting beat Flair in 1990 and at Survivor Series 1995 when Bret beat Diesel.  I also saw the WCW title switch, sort of, at the 91 Bash when Luger beat Windham for the vacant title at that awful, awful show.

Heel vs heel, I think I saw Flair defend against Koloff at a Bunkhouse Stampede tour stop.  Pretty good.

I want to like this.  I really do.  But I had an ex that often said, "Are you joking me?" so this brings up all sortsa PTSD.

In news that won't surprise anyone, WWE isn't letting Luke Harper out of his contract until right before next year's WrestleMania.
