1  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Will there ever be another Rock, Stone Cold or Hogan on: Today at 07:33:33 AM
There will never be another like Hogan, that's for sure. To be as physically big as he was during his prime (would never get away with that today) and to have limited ring skills - fans just would not buy that now.

Rock was one of a kind - there may never be another to have the natural charisma he had.

Austin was my favourite pro-wrestler of all time - of the three here it is possible somebody could come along and build up a head of steam like he did (Bryan is kind of being booked like Austin was around 1998 but still comes across as being weaker. The company are just not behind him fully like they were with Austin in '98).

I don't think anybody on the current roster will achieve the popularity of those three - that is become so big that they cross over into popular mainstream media. Everybody knew who Hogan, Austin and Rock were at the height of their fame. I don't think non-wrestling fans could name one current superstar on the roster.

Agreed. Whoever listed Swagger....may be a good wrestler but need a personality implant.

Again I am looking for someone that makes the crowd jump to their feet. I think DB did a great job the Raw after Wrestlemania. Probably had 75%+ of the fans chanting YES

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

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

In my opinion the three guys that got the biggest pops and made the most money were Hogan, Rock and Austin..

Will there ever be another person like these guys?

I don't want to hear Cena...yes he makes tons of money but never generated the excitement/pop

Because his gimmick is quite possibly the worst gimmick EVER.

Oh. My. God.

Just horrendous.

Nuff said

Watching Raw from last night.....definitely a good verbal battle between Bray and Cena..

It will be interesting to see who the talent is.

Between his Fed and Triple A coming to America.....AJ Styles should land somewhere but who are some of the other "hot free agents" out there....

If Jeff is smart, he does not become an on air performer/wrestler...I think this is what tarnished TNA in the early yrs..
14  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Jake Roberts on why there are so few good heels... on: April 15, 2014, 08:12:37 AM
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.

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

Regal, Orton, Umaga, Eddie.....and the list goes on
15  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Wrestling Board / Re: Jake Roberts on why there are so few good heels... on: April 15, 2014, 07:57:22 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!

Is WWE finally deciding to put some emphasis on this?

I see Cesaro vs Sheamus in the finals with Cesaro winning.

What about the US Title?

Ultimate Warrior was an electrifying personality, but he was a terrible wrestler.   Other than his signature 'body press' finishing move, all he did was run around the ring doing elbow smashes and clotheslines.   No technical 'wrestling' of any kind, ever.    

And Hogan was any better?

Wyatt's are severely over...listening to chants of Wyatts and Boo for the faces

Holy Shit..am floored by this...guess it's a good way to go out

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/2014/04/09/wwe-says-the-ultimate-warrior-dead-at-54/7495659/

Days after his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame and a return to the company after an 18-year breakup, The Ultimate Warrior has died, according to a statement posted on the WWE website. He was 54.

The news, posted late Tuesday night, led to a flood of tributes from fans and WWE performers and officials.

In the statement, the company said, "WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior.

"We are grateful just days ago, Warrior had the opportunity to take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and was able to appear at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw to address his legions of fans. WWE sends its sincere condolences to Warrior's family, friends and fans."

Warrior was known for his energetic style, sprinting down the aisle to the ring; violent shaking of the ropes to psych himself up; and unique interview style that left fans captivated or confused, and often both.

Warrior was born James Brian Hellwig, but legally changed his name to Warrior in 1993. He is survived by his wife Dana and daughters Indiana and Mattigan, who had accompanied him to the podium at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday night in New Orleans.

"We are all so sad that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away," WWE chairman Vince McMahon tweeted.

Tweeted Stephanie McMahon, WWE's chief brand officer, "Your strength of character is to be admired. There will never be anyone like you. Your spirit lives on in your family."

In his final public appearance Monday night, Warrior donned the long jacket with his image airbrushed on the back, similar to what he wore during his wrestling days, and put on a mask that looked like his trademark face paint. It was his first appearance on Raw since 1996.

"No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own," he told the crowd. "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers -- by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever.

"I am the Ultimate Warrior, you are the Ultimate Warrior fans and the spirit of the Ultimate Warrior will run forever."

The weekend events were a homecoming for Warrior with the WWE and a chance for fans to embrace him.

"So happy I embraced Warrior with a hug when we saw each other backstage Saturday night," Kevin Nash tweeted. "My heart goes out to his family. Always Believe."

Tweeted Dave Bautista, "After all these years I finally got 2 tell him that me shaking the ropes was an homage 2 him. Blessed to have had that moment."

During his Hall of Fame speech, he credited WWE executive vice president Paul Levesque, a k a Triple H, for helping repair a relationship that had gone sour between Warrior and the WWE. Stephanie McMahon had tweeted a photo of her father and Warrior in an embrace Monday with the caption, "Never say never."

Warrior also had announced a multi-year arrangement to become an ambassador for the company.

WWE released a DVD in 2005 called "The Self-Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" that featured negative comments about the Warrior's work and persona from WWE officials and other performers. The Warrior was not part of the DVD and its release followed previous contract disputes and litigation between WWE and Warrior. During his Hall speech, Warrior made reference several times to the DVD and said it was "just wrong" and "I wasn't a bad guy." The DVD led to another lawsuit.

Among the points of contention between Warrior and the WWE was who owned the name and likeness associated with the character.

In a new DVD released last week, "The Ultimate Warrior: The Ultimate Collection," Warrior says why he thought the previous DVD was flawed and goes on to highlight his start in the wrestling business and provide commentary on some of his best matches.

Warrior began his wrestling career as part of a group of bodybuilders-turned-wrestlers in Southern California. His early career was marked by his work in a tag team known as the Blade Runners with Steve Borden, who would later become Sting. Warrior was known as Blade Runner Rock and Borden as Blade Runner Flash.

His use of the Warrior name came in the Texas-based World Class Championship Wrestling where he worked as the Dingo Warrior and was billed as being from Queens, N.Y.

Warrior came to the then-WWF in 1987 and was re-branded as The Ultimate Warrior. He won his first Intercontinental title from the Honky Tonk Man in a match that lasted less than a minute at the first Summer Slam in 1988. He would lose the title to Ravishing Rick Rude and then regain it at Sumer Slam in 1989.

He was still the champion leading into the main event match at WrestleMania VI in Toronto in 1990, which might be the highlight of his career. The bout against Hulk Hogan -- billed as "The Ultimate Challenge" -- was for Hogan's WWF title and Warrior's Intercontinental title.

Warrior won the match and was embraced and presented with the WWF title belt by Hogan afterward, in a passing of the torch from the biggest star of the 1980s to one of the biggest stars of the 1990s.

"RIP WARRIOR. only love. HH," Hogan tweeted Tuesday night. Hogan had said over the weekend that he hoped to mend some fences with the Warrior and lauded the Warrior's Hall of Fame speech.

Warrior would leave the WWE twice and then return before an ill-fated and brief stint in World Championship Wrestling in the late 1990s.

After retirement, he worked as a motivational speaker.

"Devastated to hear of the passing of @UltimateWarrior," former wrestler Chris Jericho tweeted. "He was a childhood hero of mine & he vs @HulkHogan WM6 is still one of the best ever."

I'm curious to know which bump or spot during the match caused the concussion and back injury. He took a long time to make his way backstage from the ring but I thought he was just selling his defeat and soaking in the applause.

Supposedly it was a leg drop. The question is will UT break kayfabe and announce his retirement if this is the case. As someone else said, when they decide to do a DVD on him, have Mark Calloway break character and talk about his life, struggles etc..

Next step - Brock vs Daniel B - David vs Goliath
