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
