it's funny how far wrestlers need to push themselves to make it in today's industry

30 years ago a guy like Hogan became immortal with charisma and a leg drop

I think a big problem was that guys kept taking it to a higher & higher level.
The more you give the fans, the more they want...and pretty soon, they demand it - unsatisfied with the older stuff.

Notwithstanding today's general lack of talent, I think a major drawback is that just about everything within the realm of human possibility has been done and seen.
They've reached a point where they can't fall from any higher or land any harder.
They've exhausted the well of angles & story lines.
Pretty much all of the best stuff has been done, and the cookie-cutters of today lack any imagination & creativity because they never needed to or had the chance to develop it.

Cornette had a quote like "30 years ago it was soft, and people thought we were killing each other. Today, guys are killing themselves and no one is buying it."

I don't remember if he was very technical but I enjoyed his routine when I was younger

playing WCW/NWO Revenge recently, throwing Diamond Cutters all over the place - good times

Next to Michael Hickenbottom (Shawn Michaels), DDP had the worst real name in wrestling (Paige Falkenburg).   Cheesy

I'm a big fan..He was incredibly over and the crowd loved him. He worked his ass off to put on good matches unlike most of the clowns in WCW. A lot of people don't like him because he they believe he got pushed because of his connections with Bischoff.

I remember in WCW he had an angle with Savage and came out for a match disguised as one of the "New Japan" stars...stopped a Savage elbow drop with a foot to the face then won with a Diamond Cutter before he unmasked.  The fans went nuts because unlike so many of these, people didn't see it coming.  I had no idea it was DDP under there (unlike Dusty Rhodes as The Midnight Rider...oh, brother)

Yep...

Although I always think of Dusty/MR and remember Jim Ross' overselling it so badly... "The Midnight Rider looks familiar, but I just can't place him!!!"   Roll Eyes    Most five-year-olds could.

Not to mention big Dust had used the exact same angle in Florida when fueding with Sullivan. 

As Tully once said....."Dusty, every man in Austin knows the color of the inside of your moms bedroom...."  Now that is a promo.


As for DDP, I went to a Nitro in Atl at the height of the monday night wars and DDP was THE most over guy as for a pop and sustained pop.....more than Hogan, nWo, Hall/Nash, Goldberg, etc....  He was WAY over and like Mass said, I know DDP got a break because of Bischoff, but he certainly ran with it.

DDP does Yoga in the park by my place every weekend.

I've run into him a couple of times... Really nice guy.

He was crazy over in WWF, too. He got a huge pop when he was revealed as the stalker and got that crappy motivational speaker gimmick to work.

I always liked him, even more after reading Mick Foley's book, when Foley, DDP and Austin would travel together

LOL at the name!!! you could mispronounce it to sound like Page F*cken-Berg or F*ck a Berg

I wish he'd come back as an announcer and give some enthusiasm to the product, something that the announcers, namely on Raw don't do. King has become god awful.

I thought he was pretty cool back when I was a teenager - the way he sat in the corner and just seemed to do his own thing

great in ECW and WCW plus a sweet finisher

Raven is also quite intelligent - at least as far as IQ is concerned.
It sounds as if he pocketed some good coin while in WCW.

Of course, I'll always maintain that his best work was in the original ECW.
A long way since this:

IIRC, Av dabbled in a little pro-wrestling a few years back.
Never mentioned it much, though.
