    Default Wrasslin'!

    Ok I am going to go ahead and give everyone a chance to call me a redneck and so on, but this topic was BEGGING to be discussed. It's a long time coming BROTHERRRRR!!!!

    I find almost nothing more hilarious and entertaining than old pro wrestling, or as they called it in my neck of the woods "WRASSLIN". I do not watch the WWE these days, I don't care to get back into "sports entertainment" I just enjoyed when it when it was simply a bunch of roided up cokeheads smashing the bejesus out of each other, screaming into microphones and just being ridiculous.

    I know that more than a few of my boxing friends on here enjoyed some wrasslin especially the Brits....how could you not love The British Bulldogs? Davey Boy Smith and The Dynamite Kid, epic tag team...roided out as fuck!

    There were some good athletes in wrestling no doubt, and they took some big falls and big knocks. Nothing but respect for the old school guys: Macho man, Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Superstar Billy Graham, etc.




    So fellas your memories, your favorites, the best finishing moves, the worst (most hilarious as well).



    Let's take a little trip down memory lane OOOOOH YEAH! DIG IT!

    #1 Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase
    #2 I think he was better with Dynamite Kid Tom Billington
    #3 Warrior got his start as a tag team partner of Sting (the WCW Icon)
    #4 Hulk Hogan was awesome! He wasn't a great technical wrestler but as a PRO Wrestler he and Ric Flair and Macho Man Randy Savage are as good as it gets!

    I use to watch him when he was wrestling in UK with Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks.

    Awful wrestling but I watched it live with my dad and loved it at the time.

    Rickie The Dragon Steamboat was great, Harley Race, Junkyard Dog, The Road Warriors, Demolition, Brutus The Barber Beefcake, Greg The Hammer Valentine, The Enforcer Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Koko B. Ware, Brett The Hitman Hart, Jim The Anvil Neidhart....wrestling in the 80's was brilliant!

    And the theme songs were awesome!



    And the promos were legendary!

    How odd. It's dead as fook in work right now so I spent all day yesterday watching Wrasslin documentaries on the You Tube.


    I never really watched Wrestling mainly due to it always being on Sky but I'd get a VHS of Wrestlemania and the like so I've always been familiar with the faces. I watched a bit of ECW, WCW, TNT. I've never really cared for particular Wrestlers as such but if I had to pick one I'd find it difficult to split the Undertaker and Goldberg. I also used to like Legion of Doom.


    Not sure if he's still alive but the Dynamite Kid ended up living on a shitty council Estate in Manchester after completely loosing it. When Chris Benoit went mental (Dynamite Kid was Benoit's hero) an English rag tracked down TDK and he basically slated CB for harming his family. As it turn out TDK was something of a hypocrite and used to beat his Mrs up a fair bit and stuck a shotgun in her mouth. On the video I watched he was pretty unapologetic, the shotgun wasn't even loaded!!


    It was some sad stuff. These guys basically running themselves into the ground day in day out sticking whatever they can into their bodies to get bigger, keep going. In the end they pop.


    The main guy Vince seems pretty unapologetic about it too. All these guys dying before they hit 40, roided up to the eyeballs. The MO still seems to be the same, bigger is better. But it's ok. The WWE has banned chair shots to the head.
    When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough

    Big Daddy would have fucked up Hogan, Flair and the British Bulldog on the same night.

    Fact
    Don't bully fat kids - they've got enough on their plate

    I love wrasslin and still DVR RAW to flip through later. It helps me go to sleep as it is mindless entertainment.


    Old school wrasslin was much more amusing.


    Recently I did a lesson for my 11th grade English Class as I'm a high school English teacher and based it all off of old school wrasslin.


    I had kids picking out the claims and counter claims of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man as well as determining if they were being biased or unbiased. Finding evidence to support their claims etc.


    Basically, it was an excuse to do a really fun lesson with two GREAT promos from Hogan and Macho Man building up to Wrasslemania 4 or what have you.

    Yes think I have seen that interview on Youtube, seen some interviews with the Kid he comes across
    a bit bitter and twisted, people said he was a bit of a bully boy, I remember the Kid and Davy boy
