Why would you get defensive when other people point out the fact wrestling is fake?
Written early morning on April 9th on a different forum.
Check last sentence... People considering it fake wrestling was dead 20 yrs. ago
and I havn't watched any since they had the WCW/NWO which was entertaining for a while.
He was the only reason I watched a bit of wrestling late 80's and early 90's.
I didn't care if he wasn't a great wrestler; I was inspired by the build and intensity of the gimmick.
This is a shock cause he was always no drugs, stay in shape, ect.
It was obvious he used his fair share of juice in his prime.
I've got a lot of the story now by spending about an hour on youtube so here is my take.
He did a video to promote a WWF video game and looked in tremendous shape for 53-54.
Obvious TRT, HRT at the least. He looked slim in the face and the abs were showing.
I've been seeing all these commercials about how TRT is bad for your heart, ect through new studies.
I sure hope it's just hype and propaganda because I planned on getting on TRT in the next 6 months
and get those test levels back to when I was 25 instead of 48.
Anyway, he was inducted in the WWE hall of fame and looked like a different person than the commercial.
I wonder if he may have had a mini stroke because the left side of his face; eye and mouth seemed to droop
ever so slightly but it is there if you watch long enough. This would explain a limp also.
Monday Raw he gives a death type speech talking about his last breath and how the legend
will live on way after he's gone. Something to that effect. Very strange that he died the next day.
I think he knew his health for whatever reason was not good.
He looked like he had aged at least 10 years in the last 5. In fact he looked like he had
aged 5 years or more from the commercial they had shot.
He made his mark on 10's of thousands of people and will be remembered as one of the 1st
to really bring the entertainment side out of Sports Entertainment instead of most considering it
fake wrestling at the time.
Day before he died speech - Kind of Prophetic so to speak.
