I love this.
Dustin Rhodes - 1988
We wonder exactly what kind of statement the future “American Nightmare” was trying to say, back in the 1980s. His Goldust character looked somewhat normal in comparison.
Match of the Day:
Shelton Benjamin vs Kurt Angle
WWE Monday Night Raw
August 22nd, 2005
It’s a shame what mediocrity Shelton Benjamin has drifted to after being such a midcard delight during this era. It’s not often you think someone has a match won with a Samoan Drop. Stay tuned after the match for a fun bit of Kurt Angle coronation.
What's the most surprising thing you've encountered in your career? (x)
- Wrestling is NOT fake… several black eyes, 3 broken noses, broken ankle, broken thumb, dislocated shoulder, herniated disc.
The Perfect Champion
A great documentary (in 4 parts) on the career Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, the closest we’ve ever come to a perfect wrestler.
I love the fact that for six out of seven days, the “raw” tag is about vegan stuff, pictures of people’s weed, and whatnot, but one night a week, the tag gets taken over by wrestling fans.
I hate the fact that for six out of seven days, the “wcw” tag is about wrasslin stuff, pictures of sting, and whatnot, but one night a week, the tag gets taken over by instagram fans.
WCW will always mean World Championship Wrestling not Woman Crush Wednesday.
Meltzer said his workweek often exceeds 110 hours, but his home office in San Jose, Calif., allows him to spend pockets of time with his wife and two children. He has no employees, and he prints his newsletter — in single-spaced 7-point type — at a local copy shop. He declined to specify either the number of subscribers or how much he makes, but he agreed with an assessment of his income as being in six figures.
No concrete accounting of Meltzer’s prolific output can be made. Publishing about 25,000 words per issue — often many more — he has conceivably written more than 33 million words, nearly all of which have been in the service of analyzing an often-maligned athletic event.
Frank Deford, a 50-year veteran of Sports Illustrated, once labeled Meltzer the most accomplished reporter in sports journalism.
“You could cover the Vatican or State Department,” Deford said recently, “and not do as good a job as Dave Meltzer does on wrestling.”
A summary of yesterday, presented in no order.
Tag World Grand Prix 2013 is definitely one for the history books. I won’t get too spoilery for those who missed the online results, but I will tell you that you’re going to want these shows on DVD as soon as Smart Mark puts them out.
Trust me. Would I lie?
im too far down this rabbit hole to stop now
Rule 63 Ricardo makes me feel all “AWWWWWWWWWWW”, you guys.
