Heck, I remember seeing "Scot Hall fears Betty Ford," signs back in 96-97.  Sad to see one with so much talent fall on his sword that way.

Bret Hart.

Interesting watching Sting hold him down for the 3-count, when Jeff obviously thought he was going to get a kick-out.  I felt the worst for Sting- best shot he got to do the whole match was to Bischoff before it began.

I can't believe they're wasting talent like Morrison and Stratus on a gimmick match with Snookie- did they piss of the writers?

In his prime, Ellering had one of the best physiques in wrestling. Even today, he'd be one of the best.



Holy Cow! I had no idea Ellering ever looked like that!
56  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Strongest Factions??? on: March 07, 2011, 05:06:20 PM
Have to agree the Horseman will always come first.

I loved early NWO (before Wolfpac, LWO, etc); the heat on those guys was incredible, especially Hogan.  I had no idea he would be so good at being bad.

On the mic... the Brain

At Ringside... Jimmy Hart

Agree with the comments on Ellering- seemed more like a true manager, teaching the guys how to manage money and be smart, as a character, the RW were great with or without him.
58  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Shawn Ray talking smack about dorian. on: March 02, 2011, 10:14:56 AM
Shawn was always trashing the champ.  Before Dorian, it was Haney.  Flex would run articles by Ray going on and on about how it was his time, and he was the new uncrowned champ.  Then he'd come in 4th.  I know it's self promotion, but it always felt like Shawn was having a self-affirmation- "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darnit, people like me!"

Hulkster agrees:

See, overselling is the same as no-selling in my book.

I really hope that they let Cena loose on the mic next week and not make him come out and do some neutered kitty promo.

  I remember some of Cena's old heel promos, and all I can say is, he and Dwayne better script whatever they say carefully, because what the Rock would do to him on a live riff would be hard to recover from.  It'd be like Ric Flair cutting his promo on the Warrior.
61  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Shawn or Bret? on: February 15, 2011, 05:52:33 PM
  First off, Bret is my all-time favorite wrestler, so I'm totally biased.  The thing that stood out to me in the Bret vs Shawn question is selling.  Bret made everyone he wrestled look good.  He sold like he was legit hurt, it was never cartoony.  Some of my favorite Bret matches are ones he lost, because he built the other guy, while still managing to make himself look like gold.

  Shawn pulled fantastic moves and was dang entertaining to watch, but I never felt like he sold another guy throughout the match.  Just my 2 cents.
62  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Rock has returned (Video) on: February 15, 2011, 05:46:12 PM
First time in a while I've been really excited about a WWE bit.  In 20 minutes, he buried the entire roster, showing them how it ought to be done.  No one owns a crowd like the Rock.
63  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Bobby "The Brain" Updates: on: February 15, 2011, 05:44:41 PM

He had to practically beg production to let him do that sendoff.

That was the moment that made him more human than any other during the show, IMO, and there were a lot of warm moments in that speech.  Made me miss him on-air all the more.
64  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Bobby "The Brain" Updates: on: February 14, 2011, 03:48:23 PM
I picked it up- nothing groundbreaking, and little to no interview footage with Bobby in the body of the documentary, which was sad.  There were a bunch of clips of him in the extras, telling short stories or in bits from Prime Time, but FAR too little, especially in the promos he cut as a manager.  Most of it was him commentating rather than managing.

The one exception, which was worth the cost of the disc IMO, was Heenan's Hall of Fame induction.  So funny, so heart-felt, and the first time a wrestling dvd made me cry when he finished his speech with a tribute to Monsoon.

Can't believe Real American isn't on the list yet.
66  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Any 70's/80's wrestlers well off on: January 27, 2011, 05:46:37 PM
I was stunned when I first learned how little many wrestlers made in the day, even in the WWF(E).  Just goes to show rich and famous can be mutually exclusive.  I remember the band Red Flag saying that after their first album was a hit, their new label bosses were going on and on about how famous they were going to be.  Their response was, "We'd rather be rich."
67  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Meeting a wrestler.....tell us your story. on: January 25, 2011, 04:53:46 PM
Some good stories here.  Smiley

Agreed- you guys are making me feel like I grew up on the wrong coast!
68  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wrestlers you just can't get into on: January 24, 2011, 06:11:28 PM
Remember his match with the Undertaker at WM9? Everytime he tok a right hand from the Undertaker he looked like a drunk who had 24 beers proir to stepping in the ring.

  I totally remember that- one of the first times I ever felt sorry for a wrestler, though Dusty in polka dots with Sapphire is up there, too.
69  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Successful wrestling angles you remember from growing up on: January 24, 2011, 11:31:32 AM
Lol...his exact words were "Warrior was the biggest dickwad I ever worked with." Funny how no one has anything positive to say about Hellwig. Shows you what a dickhead he really is.

  Anyone seen the shoot interview the Warrior did a few years ago?  It's a great interview, but what came through most was that it was just a job; no passion for the business at all.  I get the feeling it was all about the paycheck, and a belt was just an extra zero on the end of said paycheck.  Sad, really.
70  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wrestlers you just can't get into on: January 24, 2011, 11:27:11 AM
The Great Kahli has to be the biggest one though. Who the hell wants to watch him? Even his promos are in Punjab.

  You would think they'd learned their lesson with Giant Gonzalez (RIP).
71  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Successful wrestling angles you remember from growing up on: January 17, 2011, 06:10:07 PM
Road Warrior Hawk falling off the Titan Tron.  Hogan losing the belt to Andre on FNME, when the Hebner twins played the refs.  The LWO (Latino World Order)- still laugh thinking about that one!
72  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: 2011 WWE Hall of Fame discussion on: January 14, 2011, 05:26:23 PM
Lol...actually Honky is very big and very well respected on the Indy scene. Especially for fullfilling commitments....unlike the idiot Warrior who won't sign an autograph for a kid unless he gets 3.6 mill.

  I met HTM at Comic Con last year with my kids, and he couldn't have been nicer to us.  He was just in the aisle as we were looking at a booth, and I almost ran into him when I turned around.  I told him how much my kids, who had only just started to watch wrestling, loved his matches from his feud with Savage when HTM was IC champ, and he was almost shy about thanking us.  Definitely elevated him in my eyes.
73  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Keith J.: R.I.P. on: January 14, 2011, 03:05:29 PM
I always loved Keith's posts- I always felt kind of bad for how flamed he'd get on the G&O board; still, he kept coming back for more, so he must not have minded.  Does anyone have any of his stories involving wrestling they could share?
74  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Match of the Day on: January 13, 2011, 01:29:11 PM
Don't know how I didn't notice this thread until today; so much for my powers of observation.  Now that I've found it, work suddenly seems a whole lot less interesting. Wink
75  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Industry News & Notes - Updated Weekly: on: January 11, 2011, 06:41:27 PM
What an assclown....like anybody on the planet cares if he shows up.  Shawn will probably tell the security he doesn't know him... Grin

I'd like it better if he came as the 1-2-3 Kid.
