Re: Wrestling's criminal records list

There are a few missing from here:-

Nathan Jones spent 11 years in jail in Australia for armed robbery, they even made it part of his debut story.
A lot of guys have been arrested for Disorderly...

Re: If Punk was cought drinking /suspended for drugs what would be your reaction?

What a silly question? I mean, he has a right to a private life, if his views change over time then what difference does that make to anyone. Just like if Jerry Lawler decided to "live life to the...

Re: WWE & AJPW form an alliance, Edge joins twitter, Big Johnny Update

It's probably geared towards pushing Tensai, as "Giant" Bernard is an AJPW character, he goes back there for a bit and comes back with that gimmick. They can also use it for Swagger and Drew to gain...

Re: Rumor: WWE Star Strongly Considering Retirement By WM 29

I think he was working hurt and that's more the problem. Interest wise he would have been bang up for getting his push, but if his body was telling him it was 5 years too late then it would be pretty...

Re: Possible Jeff Hardy WWE Return?

The "lack of talent" is not true. The talent is more than adequate, and where it goes wrong is that guys are not just given the ball in favour of the latest name who can wangle a part time deal.

Re: TV/Movies based Wrestling Gimmicks you like to see

Hokey TV based gimmicks were what made mid 90's WWF so lame. We had the comedy plummer, ice cream man, garbage man and Waylon Mercy who was basically Max Cady from Cape Fear. It shocks me we never...

Re: Where Big Show Is!!

WWE started rotating talent off a couple of years back to prolong their careers. Notably Kane was off for 4 months last year and this year it's Show's turn. This is especially relevant as Floyd...

Re: Whos the most under appreciated legend of them all?

Bob Backlund had the charisma of a turnip? Wow never saw it like that, you must be a real fount of wisdom... You don't hold the WWF title for 7 years and get it back in the 90's with NO charisma. Go...

Re: The Most Respected Mid-Carder of all times?

Gypsy Joe was a good example, mainly cos his career outlasted most other's lives in the business.

You have to look at it a bit more than even that though. Main Eventers were guys who with or...

Re: 2 Cold Scorpio

Vince seemingly made a game of signing top talents in terms of ring work and putting them through the shit in the WWF. He did it first with Hakushi, who was an amazing worker given a not too shabby...

Re: Owen Hart wins WWF title

I never understood why they went with Backlund taking the title and losing to Diesel. The whole thing lacked something that having Owen in the slot, trained by Backlund would have made better. I...

Re: Why was the Big Boss Man so hated?

He was hated in his initial run too, far moreso in fact than the Attitude era, which many only seem to remember him for.

When he came in, he was a known heel from the NWA as Big Bubba Rogers, but...

Re: How big was Ultimate Warrior in his prime?

From a UK perspective, he was as big as Hogan and The British Bulldog but for slightly different reasons. When watching as a kid, I used to judge people by whether my dad and nan knew who they were....

Re: Why was Sid fired in 1997?

I think it was a combination of things that led to them realizing he was the shits. (crapping himself against Taker notwithstanding)

His regular softball disappearances were still there, as was...

Re: Man Mountain Rock 1995 WWF tour Documentary

MMR was in a couple of movies in the early 80's so you could see he'd have the interest in this kind of thing.
If the movie was completed, I think it would be more Vince buying it from him than him...

Re: Randy Orton wants to be a heel...

I really hope they resist giving him it just now. I still think his attitude is suspect and flipping off fans is just another example of it being his undoing.

I get the guy might be frustrated and...

Re: Interview with The King next week

It's a way to keep Jerry on TV and thus making his full coin from his deal. His pay will be linked to being on RAW, if he isn't he'll be getting downside which is a heck of a lot less. For every week...

Re: Do you all think Big Show violated a Wellness policy?

No, WWE is still using the "rotation" policy they started a couple of years back to ensure the older talents get regular breaks, basically extending their careers.

Last year Kane was off for most...

Re: Rumor: WWE Star Strongly Considering Retirement By WM 29

Henry is one of those guys that could retire tomorrow and the majority of fans would be "that sucks, oh well" rather than a massive swell of sadness. Last year was immense for him and I can't ever...

Re: Barrett is open for business and no one is buying!

Part of the new gimmick is being overshadowed by the Punk - Respect angle. I think within a few weeks Barrett will be part of the group with Heyman and Brock who is also seeking respect. Barrage...
