I loved tonight.  It's been forever since I got to decide which match I wanted to watch when I had two legit options. 

The winner on either show was JD Drake.  I saw the Evolve promo and kept seeing this one guy who was the champ and I was all "who is this Beer City Bruiser wannabe?"  I've never seen an Evolve show.  I'm guessing most of the viewing audience was the same.  In my eyes, tonight he was made.  He sold me on this match.  Even if his "life hurt me more than you can" or whatever was kinda lame.

Other than Montreal (and a ring apron), is there any proof that Vince has been in a legit physical confrontation let alone an actual fist fight? One swift kick to the knee and this man would go down in a heap.

Bret Hart also took him out with one punch.

I think that's what was meant by "Montreal"

Beer City Bruiser is awesome. He stole the show at Honor Rising 2018.

Maybe Vince is part of an underground fight club in the province of Quebec called Terminal Combat.

Wait...that might be the plot for the Danny Trejo and Ken Shamrock movie Champions.

My bad.

He should go back to being Dinn T. Moore.

I didn't know how much I needed a movie about Vince, Danny Trejo and Ken Shamrock in an underground Canadian fight club until RIGHT NOW

Proof? No. In that Playboy interview he boasted about beating up Marines as a youngster. But he might have lied.

Can’t remember what book it was in but the story was that Vince and his friends would harass African-American soldiers from Ft. Bragg when they came into town. It’s doubtful any of the soldiers fought back since the local cops would have arrested them which could have lead to a court martial.

No wonder Vince sided with Shawn, and the Kliq’s misbehaving attitude so much.

During the Pillman/Guerrero match where Pillman grabs Heenans jacket they mention on commentary that you could call the WCW hotline to hear Bischoffs thoughts on the Billionaire Ted skits WWF were doing at the time. 

Does anyone know what he said?

As an aside, I did find it funny when Tony said that as the Ted skit from the previous Raw was about Scheme Gene ripping people off with his hotline.

I swear I don't remember seeing Montreal in there...I blame my migraine and the marathon AEW show.

Here they have frybread and sopapillas instead of elephant ears, but make them in a way where they're basically elephant ears instead of the traditional frybread or sopapilla.

Here we have frybread at least once a week. New Mexico, represent!  Salt, butter, and grease... Three of your basic food groups right there.

I love Bruiser's size and abilities.  When I last tuned into ROH's TV he was out there with (just looked up his name) Brian Milonas doing the lamest New Age Outlaw-like intro that ruined both of them prior to the match.  I like both of those guys. I'd love to see Bruiser as a heel, with a manager, a slight alteration on the look, and a non-gimmicked real name.  Or like 'Beer City Bruiser' Matt ____ or whatever.  I always love seeing big thick (not cut) imposing performers with technical ability.

Just a quick bitch, I'm kinda new to wrestling in 2019 after a long absence, the sling blade version of the clothesline, which seems extremely prominent (I don't remember even seeing it back in the early oughts) is so ugly.  Some of these workers are good enough to make it look not embarrassing, but it always looks so weak. 

I also don't get the Meltzer Driver - 'no wasted motion', yeah!?!

"I've never hurt anyone inside the ring, outside the ring, you're dealing with Canada's greatest athlete!" 

Disconnect much, Bret?

It's sad that the majority of the board probably has no reference for this.  NewsRadio is one of the most underrated comedies ever.  Well, the first four seasons anyway.  The year post-Phil Hartman never happened.

Considering that NewsRadio has been pimped on this board forever I am not sure I agree with this.

Granted majority of folks don't venture out of the wrestling folder AND Sweetser and Jingus have vanished

But I will talk about how much I love a cane if necessary

That was Sex, Lies, and Headlocks, and unfortunately, that book can't even get basic dates and other research right, so it's not the most trustworthy source.

I totally believe that Vince would do something like that living in *checks* rural North Carolina in the '50s, but I need better confirmation...unless there is another book that said this stuff that you read it in.

I liked the episode of NewsRadio where they did a Halloween-themed episode for the sole purpose of pointing out how good Dave Foley looked in drag.

Could “Sex, Lies and Headlocks” have lifted it from sometime Irv Muchnick wrote? Now that I think of it some more I remember a Vince profile piece one of the sports shows where it’s brought up that Vince was a Juvenile Delinquent and one of the talking heads maybe Muchnick in the interview mentions the Ft. Bragg stuff.

If you want Dave Foley in drag, and the rest of the troupe for that matter, you need the Kids in the Hall in your life. Foley may have been the best looking one in drag, or Scott Thompson.

I grabbed the book off my shelf to look and see what we could find out. It has no references page, but it has an acknowledgements page, and Muchnick isn't listed there. That isn't to say that he might not have been the original source. 

But it does quote a Douglas Franks as giving this info about Vinnie McMahon back in the day, so maybe that came directly from him OR was lifted from a Muchnick column by Assael or Mooneyham, the authors and researchers, without proper credit.

He only kills what he eats.

The WWE Archivist posted on twitter like a month or so ago that they found boxes and boxes of audio tapes from those 900 hotlines and other things from WCW and the WWF. So who knows, some of that stuff might be heard.
