  1. Slappy Squirrel and Haystacks Calhoun name drops, among others nice.
  2. So what happened on CNN? I’lll look for it later obviously but I’m curious. And I won’t get to see Smackdown either.
  3. We’ve been through heavier stuff than this and the opening segment was always handled as well as possible under the circumstances, all of them considered IMO. Does that really change tonight?
  4. That’s hardly what I meant but anyway what are you going to do yourself today to take down Vince McMahon then...
  5. Man they screwed Baker IMO. He wasn’t the reason they didn’t top 2020 other than him not sitting down Favre style. They should have made his ass sit and told him his job was safe even though he had a GOAT backup quarterback in his place. I don’t think even he would have went undefeated so there would have been no quarterback controversy.
  6. I can’t bring myself to hate the guy just like I couldn’t ever do it to the Dynamite Kid, Jake Roberts, Warrior, etc.
  7. I’m not saying it’s not shady and sleazy. Just that it’s really only an issue because shareholders are worried about their money. And if it came out of Vince’s personal account then what should anybody care. Now as for the shady, sleazy, gross etc part of all this...I really don’t have the energy to be grossed out anymore. Or surprised. Or the time. I’m not always sure where my next $100 is coming from let alone what some rich person is doing with his millions over affairs. Alsothings that are PC are just as fucked up if you ask me. I wonder if she got Vince pregnant.
  8. I just heard and haven’t read anything except the NBC News piece that I got it from. Is this really only a thing because the shareholders are mad about the amount of money it was?
  9. That was good stuff. I have more than 1 ugly duckings turned swans in my life from childhood and let me tell you their rage is real lol!
  10. Yeah wasn’t Dreamer mean to Raven first or something? And Scott couldn’t shake it and grew up to be “Raven” and kill Tommy or something.
  11. I read a bunch of this thread but not all of it. One more thing about Sting’s justification is that Savage’s history, like Luger’s was a part of the whole thing. Savage and Luger feuded in 1995 then made it a point to patch it up before 1996. Normally they would have just ignored the past there but that was a good touch. The fake Sting really was 1 of the best executed angles in history. Michael Hayes is the most underrated complete professional wrestler ever. Hogan’s heel turn wasn’t justified but since it came up it was also great. It being so great is a reason people hate him in real life. There was no payoff to it and it ruined WCW. Eddie turning heel in WCW is when this happened. He kept getting blamed for screw ups that weren’t his fault and kept getting accused of trying to steal the Cruiserweight title when all he was really trying to do was keep Syxx from stealing it. I want to say there was a good reason Raven hated Dreamer but I’m not the ECW historian.
  12. Does anybody remember this music being used for a year or so after GAB, on WCW TV when they did those taped voice over promos? The promos where they ran down upcoming shows, houseshows and all? If anybody has a link of 1 of those handy I’d like to see it. Or atleast the name of the guy who did the voice overs. Maybe then I could find one.
  13. I’ve never seen either of those shows. Are they on DVD somewhere?
  14. Wow the Dory Funk Jr 1wrestling column. That was many people’s first dose of old wrestler who discovered the internet medicine. RIP Adam Windsor. I remember many of those columns being ignored on that very busy message board except for those. People sure said what they thought about that situation. Is Don Lebarba still around?
  15. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/entertainment/2022/04/20/bay-city-wwe-hall-fame-scott-steiner-never-stopped-flexing/7365699001/?fbclid=IwAR0vVOO2HlGtEl_00Hc4zp4PdW-9BRUgXp5ViRp9CP7X0jyZf5m7lp1fOiQ#l2dlawgtgn9zk88zdib So Scott really has conceded the whole BPP gimmick. Wow. And in this article he even talks about how it was just a gimmick with little bits of frustration poking out, like most wrestling gimmicks. That article is the most words I’ve ever heard Scott the actual person say, even more than in his shoots (he was still protecting his character then). And to my point about just how good BPP was. Even Jim Cornette goes right to BPP when the question is about the Steiner Brothers. BPP was so good that his alltime great tag team is an afterthought in comparison to that character. I’m saving the induction for a rainy day along with The Undertaker’s. I saw the Tweet with Vince above. That’s 100% appropriate IMO and just plain great. I love the WWE HoF I don’t care what anybody says. They run the mfer like they want to and it’s great. The Skysrapers and the Steiner both in on the same day wow, yet they’re both overshadowed by their next gimmick.
