1  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: WWE Network doing a 2hr special - tribute to the ultimate warrior on: April 09, 2014, 08:50:11 PM
I picked up the Ultimate Collection that was released on DVD yesterday, the best part are the bumpers between matches where Warrior talks about his old matches and the people involved.  Watching after his passing yesterday made it even more poignant, I highly recommend picking it up if you haven't.

not at all and even the degrogatory WWE DVD admits warrior was 'drawing well'
 as world champ (Sgt. Slaughter says this). at least until he started the 4 months of tag matches with LOD.

in my area, he would often main event house shows and the events sold well.

I saw him face andre in a cage, a tag match with kerry von erich vs rude and mr perfect etc. etc.

warrior failed because of the booking. the man connected with the fans like no one other than Hogan.

watch any warrior match from 1989 and see. it was insane how over he was.

  What I remember killing Warrior's momentum back in the day was the booking as well.  After he won the title, he was booked EXACTLY like Hogan; show some power moves in the beginning, then get beat nearly to death, only to hulk up and crush his opponent at the end.  As IC champ, he DESTROYED everyone they put in the ring with him, with guys like Rude selling him to the end of time.  First match of Warrior's I remember as WWF Champ was on SNME against DiBiase, if I recall correctly.  Dibiase controlled the whole match, and I thought, "what's going on!?"  He also stopped using the press slam, changing his end move to the flying shoulder tackle, which was cool, but not as cool as the press slam.  Basically, IMO, they neutered the character after he won the strap.  Savage made him look good in their feud, though.

why does Klaus need the girl assisting him with the dumbbell curl?

He doesn't; he's lifting her, too, for added pump.

She's not looking for your opinion, she wants you to validate hers.  You're there to make her feel like she is making good choices, and raise her self esteem.  If you like her choice, say so.  If not, lie; it's easier than the truth in those situations.

That's not Jay, I see veins.  Seriously, though, dude looks jacked.
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What was the GB thread that made you stay? on: March 07, 2013, 12:23:23 PM
I started on the board and got hooked back when Shawn Ray was posting, some of the standout threads have been:

  240 vs Kamali (back when he was 240 or bust)
  Harry vs Bethany Howlett (shoot, anything with Bethany)
  BEEFYHEAVYWEIGHT (probably BS, but fascinating to read)
  Onlyme vs Vince

  And, of course, pretty much any thread started by blinky.  Grin

When I first got out of college, I interviewed a design firm I really wanted to work for, but was told I didn't have the experience needed.  I called them up the next week and offered to intern for free, just to gain the experience.  They loved that I wanted to learn, and offered me a full-time spot five months later.  My boss later told me asking for an internship and being willing to work for free (they paid me) was the smartest thing any candidate had ever done.

Didn't Cutler train with Klaus for awhile?
. If by train with you mean crawled with his face in the dirt averting eye contact, while begging tidbits of wisdom from Klaus Dohring, then yes, Cutler trained with Him.

Why isn't this stickied at the top of the board?  Oh, because it's bodybuilding-related.

240 or Bust used to put up fantastic stuff back in the day.


And I can't believe nobody has mentioned Blinky.

Not really interested in seeing Jake wrestle at this point, but he could be one of the greatest managers/spokesmen of all time.  Imagine he and Heyman promoting their wrestlers before a match- pure gold IMO.

Completely threw me for a loop seeing Hawk without the reverse mohawk and the goatee- Man was too big for that little room!

Pure Gold!
16  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: The "Shoot" Interview Thread: on: January 11, 2012, 04:39:43 PM
  That was part of what I liked about this interview; seems like Bret is realizing all the good in his life, and focusing on those positives, instead of the bitter times of the last 15 years.  I'd still rather watch one of his matches than anyone else in the business (Savage being a close second).  Best ever, baby!

Thanks for posting, Monty; always love Hitman interviews!
18  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: How I would do this... on: January 06, 2012, 02:33:21 PM
  IF they turn him, and I'm still not convinced they're going that way, I'd like to see his character be almost EXACTLY the same on the mic, with the dirty play increasing in the ring.  It's the smiling at everyone who hates him and acknowledging it at the shows that's getting him heat from me, not sure if it's intentional or not.  Let him keep being shiny happy Cena, but taking things over the line in the ring, especially with some likable mid-carders, and draw some heat.  Cena should be watching a lot of Hogan tapes circa '96, because he's now that guy, ready to turn hard.  I hope he does it well if it happens, because even though I'm not a fan of his ring work, he seems like a genuinely good guy, and I'd like to see him continue to succeed.

Best Bill Smith movie IMO is still Any Which Way You Can with Clint Eastwood.  Their fight at the end of the flick was epic.

Total man's man right there (no homo).

Bobby Heenan,  he worked the crowd,  he was good on the stick,  and funny when need be.

This.

HHH still uses Motorhead, was that song originally a single, or was it written for HHH?
