haha, what a post lol, it annoys me how underatted Rick Martel actually is, I sincerely hope that Vince puts him into the HOF next year, Tito's in there (rightly so too), but Martel is and was shit hot!!! I could go on but he did a lot for wrestling in general, you'll see in this shoot how he taught HBK the ropes on being a heel (which lets be honest, Shawn's acclaim started from around that time), the Wrestlemania 10 story is crazy too, Rick's skills, agility, endurance etc.. was always incredibly spot on, for example look at him in the 1991 Royal Rumble when he got the long streak, he was constantly at it there, didn't hide in corners or anything, he knew how to work a match too, always made other talents look good, he nurtured Tatanka, helped HBK get his first big pay off, he created the Can Am Connection (which Zenk messed up as Vince loved them), Tito come in for Strike Force, had pretty much all the character development with 'The Model' after just given the name and left to run with it ... Martel is way too god damn underrated and I wish the world would see this!

Probably another good reason to add any Youtube comments and give these video's a thumbs up, however enjoy man, this shoot is awesome, truly and Rick is pure class and talks with great integrity and respect, unlike many shoots that are out there (hence why I say this one is different), it's fresh and a nice change and so good to see, so enjoy bro!

You're welcome, enjoy it man, again, like above, add some vibes on the video on Youtube if you can, I'm all down for Rick getting respect and the acclaim he deserves.

Way too many talents suffer the underrated situation, it's quite sad really but I do feel that slowly but surely they're starting to get the credit they deserve, hopefully Rick will be part of the 2014 HOF class.

Excellent gimmick.


But on topic, this is pretty cool. Thanks for posting it - I'll definitely check it out when I have a nice little 3 hour window to relax to.

Great post. I'll watch later. I'm hoping that he sprays the interviewer in the eyes with Arrogance.

Definitely do guys, you'll love it, enjoy it and again, if you watch it on youtube, leave some vibes on there and a thumbs up, means more people will see and find the shoot, everyone needs to see this I think simply cause it's so different and very very insightful, you'll learn a lot of things you had no idea.

The take in Dino Bravo's unfortunate passing is also interesting.

Why do people bother with gimmick accounts? I don't get it.
