continuing rasslin' DVD raises the question? Just how drunk was diesel/kevin nash through most of the 90s anyway? His incoherent slurring promos are genuinely painful to watch now and you can see it got to the point where the WWF production crew just went "ah fuck it, shove some black shades on him and lets hope he doesn't fall over"

Shocking that he was the barber. Should have lost a match to himself and gone bald. Crap, too. Only had a job because he was pals with Hulk.

CM Punk is the best thing going at the moment. He's great.

The Miz is also superb and can get the crowd to boo like nobody else.

Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler are also wrestlin' up a storm of late.

Seamus is always fun, and John Morrison is on the up.

I predict JoMo to win the Rumble and go on to beat The Miz at Mania.

Perhaps a kindly mod could snippy the wrestling stuff & we can have a wrestling thread? Sadly I am no longer married to a mod so I can't badger him to do it. Not that I am divorced, just that myp is no longer a mod. Obviously. Thanks :)

Occassionally I feel like I should give TNA another go. Until I watch it & then I realise why WWE is better. The camera work on TNA is so cheap that you can see people jumping to be lifted etc. And the women wrestlers are rough as fuck. Oooh which brings me onto.....

The Divas. Ah the divas. Who's your fave? I heart Beth Phoenix just a little bit.

Post subject:  Re: Rasslin'

The women in TNA are definitely more like proper wrestlers, as opposed to WWE's models/dancers-turned-wrestlers (Beth Phoenix excluded, naturally).

Thinking about it, I'd go as far as saying the female wrestlers at TNA put on a more realistic performance than the male wrestlers.

Author:  Derek The Halls [ Sun Jan 16, 2011 20:29 ]
Post subject:  Re: Rasslin'

Ooh decent female wrestling in TNA again? I need to check that out. WWE has never given a crap about the female wrestling. I don't watch much of it at all these days but if I do, it's almost certainly TNA. I just wish they wouldn't use the Dudleys. I hates them I does. The X division is often the most interesting part anyway.

I agree... for me, wrestling peaked at Wrestlemania 6. The attitude era came close but I'll always have fond memories of wrestling as it used to be.

I stopped watching after about 1992, then picked it up again just before Diesel left the WWF and watched until The Rock started taking over.

I have very few fond memories of my second stint, but the first is filled with The Big Boss Man vs Mr Perfect, Million Dollar Man Vs Jake the Snake and Undertaker Vs Everyone.

The second stint... Mankind is about the only guy I can remember.

19 . Tazz
20. Tommy Dreamer

Least favorite wrestlers.

Story please!


I really didn't used to like John Cena but over time I've really fallen for the way he whips the crowd up. The orange & blue Cenation-wear is like the modern day yellow & red Hulkamania-wear.

Speaking of John Cena, if you listen very carefuly during his match at Wrestlemania last year against Batista (who incidently I haven't missed since he left WWE!), you hear Cena say "Knee me in the back", then moments later Batista knees him in the back. Funny that!

Doncaster was home to 1pw for quite a while. When the bottom fell out of it they sold off a load of their stock of DVDs to me at three for a pound. Or possibly less. I know 1pw are still going but they don't seem to be around here these days.

I've still got most of that stock left. It doesn't sell very well.

Post subject:  Re: Rasslin'

Well, I was working on a show for 1PW. A wrestling organisation based in Doncaster that used to bring over loads of American stars... Anyway, Al Snow and Steve Corino were working out there match backstage. I wasn't supposed to be involved in it but they called me over and told me to do a run in when the regular ref got knocked out.

After this, Steve Corino was going to try to hit Al Snow with a clothesline but Al was to move and Steve would hit me and send me over the top rope to the outside.

This happened as planned except I wasn't aware of how hard Steve would hit me... It was like being hit by a car to the chest! All I remember is a dull thud noise and then I ended up outside the ring.

I thought I was on the floor for about 30 seconds but it was actually the remaining 10 minutes or so of the match.

When I came to I recall looking up at the ring and thinking "Oh, there's Al Snow... what are all these people shouting about?"

Amazing... there was also the time that Doug Williams kicked me in the knackers by mistake but that's not as amusing as the Steve Corino story.

That's a brilliant story :D I often wonder how when the refs get "knocked out" they manage to lie so still for the rest of the match, if it was me I'd be trying to sneak a peek at the action. It never occurred to me they might actually be knocked out for real :D

The word is that TNA will return but they don't know when, or which channel.

It's ok for stuff like Sparticus and Dog the bounty hunter as they are normal series and can just pick up where they left off. TNA, being shown weekly, means the longer Sky take.. the more the fans will miss the weeks of wrestling..
