180 Excellent
  1. I don’t post here often but when I heard the news I wanted to post about all of the emotions I was feeling but just couldn’t find the words. You all did it so wonderfully for me. The only thing I know to add is one thought that kept popping into my mind all day. As a kid in the mid eighties I knew Bobby Eaton was a great worker before I knew what a “great worker” was.
  2. It was actually three (argument could be made for four). Herc debuted under Freddie Blassie before Slick bought half of his contracts. Then Slick later bought the remaining half.
  3. I know that it led to one of the most successful and arguably all time great angles, but 14-year old me still insists Don Muraco should have won the WWF Title at WrestleMania IV. 33 years later I still don’t know how to do it, but I still wish it would have happened.
  4. 1. I thought my biggest problem with current wrestling was too many matches having too many two-counts. Now I realize, my biggest problem with current wrestling is wrestlers acting surprised when someone kicks out at two. I still don't like the two-counts themselves, but wrestlers acting like they didn't expect a kick out takes me right out of a match. They should either be angry or just get right back to the business of wrestling. Nobody should be surprised. Two counts happen all the time. 2. The $175 two minute WWE Virtual Meet and Greets are totally worth it.
  5. I was 10 when he first one the belt. I know by Mania 2 I was known around the playground as the kid who hated Hogan. I just couldn’t figure out why (1) he was always yelling at me and (2) why every match was him getting beat up until suddenly he decided it wasn’t going to hurt anymore and then the bad guys just kept punching him in the head anyway. I got tired of it quickly.
  6. When it comes to emotionally disliking a wrestler, it is Hogan by far for me. Never found his act entertaining (maybe the first few times I saw him) and even as a kid actively rooted against him every time just in hopes he would lose the belts and quit wrestling. I don’t really have a wrestler I refuse to watch. Randy Orton as a face comes close. But as far as non-wrestlers go I cannot stand to watch or listen to Justin Roberts. Everything about his look and voice makes me want to fast forward.
  7. Just remember it was written for Windham and Rotundo. Hogan stole it from them. Hope that helps.
  8. Lance Von Erich wrestled as a Von Erich in World Class for about a year and a half. I always remembered it being less than a year.
  9. I did not enjoy AEW at the beginning and gave up on it. After reading such positive reviews lately I’d like to give it another try. Is there a certain episode they started a good storyline in that I should use as a starting point?
  10. Is there a lineup floating for either Turning Point on Saturday or the Twitch show on Sunday? I just found out about them this morning and they are nearby. May try to see one of them.
  11. I don’t ask this to be argumentative, I ask as someone who turned off AEW half way into week two but really wants to get into it...in what ways has AEW been able to surprise you?
  12. For the life of me I do not remember Rip Taylor having a run with the WWF.
  13. No joke I was going to come out of lurking just to post the exact same thing (except I’m not a potty mouth).
  14. I'm a fan of the Iron Sheik documentary on Netflix. Once I got past the uncomfortabilty of watching the producers take advantage of him I really found myself rooting for him.
