If they want people to shell out money for the network, they're gonna have to do better than a reality show about broken down old wrestlers.

Perhaps, something along the lines of:

"Diva Threesomes"  Cheesy

True but over 20+ yrs you can probably count on one hand who many shoot interviews Taker has done...

Definitely gonna be interesting to see how much he opens up.

He is having Taker on in a few weeks...this should be the show of shows...

Eventually he'll have everyone: HHH, Steph and I'll bet even Vince.

I've had no problem giving up rice and pasta, but, some good bakery bread still tempts me.

Every exercise has turned into a cheating exercise as most people are unable to leave their egos at the door.

The problem with pull ups is that you're not allowed warm up sets as you're stuck with your bodyweight as the  be all end all. Eventually you're gonna get hurt.

With pulldowns, a mindset I've found helpful is to think about bringing your chest to the bar and that will cause you to bring the bar down and back with your arms serving strictly as levers.


Why are pulldowns harder with the same weight than pullups?  

Anyone else think this?

Huh


What Adonis said. With pull-ups, most get that swinging motion going which adds momentum to the force applied.

The current Austin Podcast with Paul Heyman is outstanding, another must listen.

Fandango is the wrestling equivalent of a one hit wonder.

Flair talked about women, money and being a champion.

What can Fandango talk about?

Heck they give every other recovering addict a 2nd,3rd and 4th chance.

Regal, Orton, Umaga, Eddie.....and the list goes on

The WWE is becoming more and more corporate. The history of dead wrestlers is something they'd like to be forgotten. IMO, going forward, they're going to have less and tolerance for Alcohol and Drug use (except for steroids, of course Wink).

My guess is that they see the upside of Jake not being worth the possible downside.

Why else wouldn't they hire him? He's a professional wrestling genius.
11  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Jake Roberts on why there are so few good heels... on: April 15, 2014, 08:04:34 AM
Now that Jake is on the straight and narrow (knock on wood) WWE needs to get him on board, talent agent, advisor etc.....

Anyone here the interview about how he always incorporated phrases from songs in his promos? Brilliant!

Since his appearance on Raw, he's been campaigning for a job. Can't blame the WWE for being skittish about bringing him on board.
12  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Jake Roberts on why there are so few good heels... on: April 15, 2014, 06:57:13 AM

Yeah it seems like I knew that.

I think he went to prison for a while for molesting his daughter but she later recanted her statement.  He kinda had the reputation for being a dick.


Yeah, I did read that as well. I didn't wanna bring it up.  Who hasn't worked with dicks? Lord knows I have and still do. Sad

Jake Roberts and Pat Paterson are the two best wrestling minds in my opinion. 

There was a Karl Kox connection in the interview. Jake said his first time in the ring was as a referee, and the heel in the match was Bob Sweetan. I googled him. Apparently, he and your dad were tag team partners.

I'd let Adonis be my cook. That pan pizza he made looked really good.
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Jake Roberts on why there are so few good heels... on: April 14, 2014, 09:14:14 PM
On his latest Podcast, Jim Ross asked Jake this question.

Jake said it's because the guys today all wanna be badasses when they need to be more chicken sh!t. Nobody likes a coward.

Now, that's a first class wrestling mind.

If you want to be surrounded by pussy in Manhattan, walk into a Sephora.

17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: what city has the hottest women you have ever seen? on: April 14, 2014, 08:41:17 PM
Manhattan, NYC. It's the most important city in the world. You walk around Manhattan in the Spring/Summer and you will see the beautiful women dressed to kill all over the place. The village is loaded with top tier models, known actresses, and famous women just walking around.  

If you ever take a bus from Manhattan to Queens, one of the first things you notice is that the people are uglier.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Horrific health impacts of lowcarb diets. Now there is actual research. on: April 14, 2014, 08:52:02 AM
High Carb diets work in countries where poor people are physically active and are fighting not to be in caloric deficit. Whatever carbs they take in are burned or stored as glycogen.

In a rich country, like the U.S, where poor people eat excessive calories, and are lazy, high carb is a disaster. Glycogen stores are always filled to capacity with blood sugar still high. So, the body is forced to use carbs as its primary fuel source. Whatever fat is eaten gets stored as fat. The end result is obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Never been a big fan of him as a wrestler, and he annoys me on Podcasts as he's such a shameless self-promoter, but I give credit where it's due.

Scott Hall was very near the top of the wrestler dead pool; yet,  he actually looked healthy at the Hall of Fame ceremony.

20  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Divas vs. Knockouts: on: April 10, 2014, 08:13:21 PM

I guess that further supports my assertion that the WWF's ladies were better years ago and TNA's are better now since they consist of much of the same talent.

Interesting fact about Velvet & Love; I didn't know they started in the Fed's developmental.

I just found that out, right before that post.

Love is on Cabana's Podcast this week and mentioned it.

She also said she's single, still in the U.S on a work visa and needs to marry an American to become citizen. Cool
21  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Divas vs. Knockouts: on: April 10, 2014, 06:53:50 PM
They're really one in the same.

Gail Kim, Tara and Mikki were all in the WWE. Angelina and Velvet were cut from WWE developmental.

According to Mark Madden, the only reason for the divisions at all is so the male wrestlers have women to fvck.

There's a two part 2hr interview with UW from 2012 on MLW radio. Damn, I can't keep up with all these podcasts.
23  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wyatt's over big time on: April 10, 2014, 01:27:55 PM
What do you think of Wade Garrett's new gimmick? That was a heel favored crowd on Raw but they really liked him squashing Mysterio.

Seemed like a lot of Brits in that crowd, too.

As far as his gimmick, same problem as Fandango and Sandow. It's one note.

Bad News Barrett: look at what an a- hole I can be.
24  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Wyatt's over big time on: April 10, 2014, 12:48:27 PM
Gimmicks like Fandango's have no depth. That's why they fizzle so quickly. The same with Damien Sandow.

Fandango: Look at how well I can dance.

Sandow: look at how smart I am.

Bray Wyatt can't be described so easily.

I'm a Purple Belt in BJJ and know many submissions but none are as satisfying as punching someone in the face.
