Wow. Just saw the intro part.

I was HUUUUGE into wrestling when I was in my young years from 9-17.

After Benoit and his family died I stopped watching wrestling, and I haven't watched a full episode since.

Seeing Eric Bishoff was a blast from the past for me. I might have to watch that.

"It's hard to say whether the wrestling lifestyle caused Hall to go down this awful road"


ROFL....really? Given the amount of wrestlers who are on the road 300 days a year living on popping pills, amphetamines, and booze, and the amount of wrestlers who are broke and are dying at early ages.....what Scott Hall is going through shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Same goes for Hogan and Flair.....they are both broke now, and have contemplated suicide attempts from what I've read/heard on TV.

You watch and see what goes on behind the curtains of the WWE's and TNA's and it's not pretty. Sting is still in the biz....I would make the assumption that he's in it because he's broke too. Same with Undertaker.

shit they had

NWO (blk/wht) - The original.....members included Hogan, Hall, Nash
NWO wolfpack (blk/red) - Hall and Nash jumped ship from orig NWO and formed this new group w/ Sting, Randy Savage, Lex Luger, Konan
LWO (Latino World Order) - included many of the mexican wrestlers in WCW
BWO (Blue World Order - kinda a mockery of them all)

Sorry, but I watched a lot of wrestling in the late 70s through mid 90s... and Scott Hall was always someone's #2 guy, he was never 'the guy' and was never the top guy on any PPV.

The guy was a focal part in changing the way (and the amount) of people that watched wrestling in the mid-late 90's with the forming of the nWo etc.

Hmm. If I could compare what his stature was in the 90's to someone today I'd probably compare him to what Chris Jericho is in todays wrestling. Always a great #2 type guy. But never a top tier level like The Rock, Cena, Triple H and those guys.

Due to the horrible star power that there is in wrestling now, Jericho has actually become a top tier guy.

During the Nitro and Attitude era some #2 or even #3 guys were:

Chris Jericho
Edge
Christian
Kurt Angle
Bradshaw
Kane
Eddie Guerrero (he'd still be in the biz if not for his death)
Matt/Jeff Hardy
Rey Mysterio

After The Rock, Stone Cold, Goldberg, et al left the biz, those listed above all were given more publicity/star power and WWE/TNA tried to run w/ it, and really wrestling hasn't been the same since and has declined dramatically in talent/ring character. Those listed above were always better as #2/3 guys, or better off with as a tag team.

damn right i wish it was like back then too.

and just for everyone's heads up.....The Rock is wrestling Nov 20th at WWE Survivor Series. And yes he's actually wrestling this time.....as him being host of last year's Wrestlemania....I thought he was going do a lot more in the ring.....I was disappointed as hell that he only showed up for like the last few minutes and then the show was over.....thank god I watched an illegal stream online, because I would have been pissed to waste 50-60 bucks on that garbage of a WM. Besides the HHH/Undertaker match, the show was the worst WM in the history of the WWE/F.

Rumors are that Rock and Cena are teaming up in a 5-team tag team battle royal or something like that. This will ultimately fuel the Rock/Cena fued that's been brewing, and will eventually lead up to their supposed match at next year's Wrestlemania.

And I was in a trampoline wrestling league....I was the ultimate geek. It was even worse than I've already stated, but I wont go that far.

I remember me and my friends doing wrestling moves n shit on the trampoline....wasn't in a league per say, but we always used to attempt to do the superstars moves and practice them on eachother. Got kinda ****ed up a few times too....no wonder they eventually had to have PSA's at the beginning of their shows that said "dont try this at home", because kids were doing that and were dying because of it and WWE was to blame.

But I don't watch it anymore I agree with you and the many others.....It's horrible crappy TV now, and it's not just because I've grown out of it and it's not all because I've gone over to real MMA/UFC stuff....much has to do w/ the fact that the star power is VERY limited....but every now and then I'd check LordsOfPain.net which is a wrestling news site that updates daily and has been since the peak of wrestling and cable modems and DSL and Napster were huge! LOL. But when a couple friends called and texted me stating that The Rock came back on Raw (this was like back in March '11) and ran to the TV and turned it on and watched as there was the announcement he was going to be the WM host. So, I decided to watch WM that year because I thought he would be into the show more than he was....I was wrong and greatly disappointed. But on that Lords of Pain site there was a link that said "Rock to return at SS" so I clicked it and read the news....it also had a fwrd to the Dwayne Johnson's twitter as he confirmed he as training for his ring work again, getting ready for the match.

But I agree......wrestling is VERY retarded now, characters, storylines, and just the overall theme....even the Raw setup looks like a circus show, and this whole Raw GM thing, and the twitter/texting booth or some shit? I dunno. The wrong people in charge (ie HHH married into the McMahon family and has MAJOR general shareholdings in the company and he runs the show, and will probably run the WWE once Vince retires/dies, steps away etc) gave the wrong superstars more face time and when all the Attitude era superstars retired or moved on to Hollywood, there wasn't anyone left to replace them except douchebags and it all went downhill from there.

BUT.....I really like watching Lesnar in UFC. I think that's cool he's able to make such a transition and he's a freak of a man athletically. I think he's also responsible as of recent of bringing a lot of that WWE audience to the UFC, because now the UFC is bigger than it's ever been. I mean all the UFC PPV records for buys are all with Lesnar on the card. I don't think it's a coincidence. A lot of these people for the longest times see these huge men in a ring and think to themselves "can these guys really fight in real life?" Well there are a couple examples....but none of them have the star power that Lesnar has.

Ken Shamrock was a MMA guy before he went to the WWE.
Dan Savern was a MMA guy before he went to the WWE.
Tank Abbott was a MMA guy before he went to the WWE.

But I can't think of anyone but Lesnar that has gone from WWE to UFC. Though Kurt Angle was a Olympic wrestler and has been recently rumored to take UFC physicals so he can get into MMA. Dana White debunked those rumors...but I know he has trained w/ Lesnar and also got into a fued w/ Chuck Liddell saying he'd **** his shit up LOL ( I'd like to see that fight).

I've said this before on the general Wrestling thread.


But a VERY good and entertaining documentary to watch is:
"The Monday Night Wars"

Kinda explains the rise and fall of the WCW/WWE fueds they had on Monday nights and how it took over American culture and tv ratings etc. How they struck gold w/ nWo, DX, Stone Cold, The Rock, WCW being bought by Ted Turner and ran by Eric Bischoff and their pissing matches w/ Vince McMahon. The rise of the WWF/E and fall of the WCW which eventually led to McMahon buying out WCW. Overall if you have time I highly suggest watching it. For anyone that watched a lot of wrestling during the late 90's....you'll like this documentary a lot.

Sorry, but I watched a lot of wrestling in the late 70s through mid 90s... and Scott Hall was always someone's #2 guy, he was never 'the guy' and was never the top guy on any PPV. It is incredibly sad to see where he is and it won't end well, but reading some of the comments, you'd think he did have an impact like Sting.

Sting was complete dogshit. He was in an inferior promotion for a long time and capitalized on that.

I'm still a wrestling fan, but at this point, it's more out of force of habit than because it entertains me every week (there's about 1 guy I give a shit about).

But yeah, it's really rough to see how far some of these guys fall. A couple months ago, there was an article (I believe on ESPN.com) about Hogan & Flair and all the problems with money & addiction being the reason they're still wrestling. Some sad stories. Makes me happy that a guy like Shawn Michaels seems to have gotten his life straightened out.

And the Rise & Fall of ECW is my favorite as well. Heyman's quote at the end is always fun to watch. Used to be on YouTube, but I can't find it now...

Is it the MNW doc that shows this match as a clip and Foley's kids and wife start crying and freak out while watching?

Crazy shit.

The one you're thinking of is "Beyond the Mat"

That documentary was actually in movie theatres back in like 1999 - which was the peak time of the pro wrestling biz....I remember seeing it. It was mostly about the older hardcore wrestler guys....other than Foley, Terri Funk, and Jake the Snake, there wasn't a whole lot of people on that documentary that I knew of....kinda before my time if you will. Good documentary though....it shows what these guys put their bodies, families, through.

The Terry Funk part of BTM was riveting and disturbing at the same time...

Just watching him get outta bed...sheesh...

Can't have discussion about wrasslin' during the peak era without posting probably the greatest promo to come out of it.

Backstory: Mick Foley was feuding against The Sandman at the time, who liked to use a cane to beat his opponents. Someone brings a sign that says "Cane Dewey," who was (at the time) his four year old son.

I liked him a lot too....there are rumors that he's coming back to WWE (again).

I watched Dancing w/ the Stars 2x....once was to see what Stacy Keibler was going to be wearing and how'd she shake that ass, the other time was to see Jericho. If The Rock was put on there I'd sure as hell watch.

What ass? That bony thing between her legs and back?

.

Well, her husband was batshit crazy. He let Taker choke slam him from 12-15 feet up, pile drive him into tacs, and fling him off a cage from 15 feet+ into the announcing booth.


The most badass beating I have ever seen in wrestling, but damn.

Flair is a piece of shit though so I'm happy for him.

Having met The Man in person, he treated me with respect, went out of his way to be nice to me, and was nothing like his persona.

Man, you all are making me feel old. Last time I watched TNA and WWE (within the last 6 months), all I could think was that the Sunday Morning All Star Wrestling of taped matches from Memorial Hall in KC was 10 times better than that. Those wrestlers were some tough dudes!

BTW, I think Harley Race was one of the best of all time, certainly one of the toughest. Few are in his league. Among them: Flair (in his prime, not now); HBK; The Rock (not for his wrestling ability, but his ability to work a crowd); and Stone Cold Steve Austin (see my comments about the Rock).

I always thought the rock was underated in the ring. Great agility for a big guy and amazingly entertaining.

Taped e60 with hall. How was it peeps?

Also before the neck injury Austin was a great in-ring performer, in my opinion.

As a childhood hero of mine, I don't even know if I can watch the documentary on ESPN on Wednesday night..

Having watched the interview just now I think that scumbag promoter would have wheeled him out on a stretch and let the other wrestler start pummeling on him. Sad for Scott Hall, but only he can overcome his addition problems.

Brian Pillman's ECW debut promo was ****ing incredible as well....had the entire smark ECW crowd eating right out of his hand and then completely flipped the script on them. Hilarious lol.

I found a guy selling literally every ECW tv show going back to 94 and all the PPV's. I was watching the '95 tv shows, and holy crap the ECW roster was loaded in hindsight. Off the top of my head:

Chris Benoit
Eddie Guerrero
Dean Malenko
Public Enemy
Taz
Sabu
Cactus Jack
Sandman
Tommy Dreamer
The Gangstas (New Jack & Mustafa)
Shane Douglas
Too Cold Scorpio
Stevie Richards (who was a huge goof back then)
Raven

It still had its share of garbage brawling stuff (every Sandman match) but it was the only promotion during that time to have great pure technical wrestling (like Guerrero and Malenko's multiple 30 minute draws).
