Just a note to let you know the attendance of local wrestling events:
Monday Nitro: 3,000
USA vs Iran: 8,500
Indy show featuring the Hardy Boys: 3,500
That's right...Nitro was outdrawn in the same month by an indy show and amateur wrestling. Quite a feat in my opinion.
Given that there's now a Madusa monster truck, will it have ridiculously over-inflated tires? Will it beat the Evan Karagias truck? Will the fat bookerman truck come from out of nowhere to beat it? I think we should be told.
Is it just me or does "Flair and Funk" sound like some sort of hair care product?
I came up with a nickname for Lash LeRoux: "The red-headed stepchild".
He looks like one and he gets beaten like one.
I was just wondering your opinion on something. Do you think the difference in crowd reaction during interviews in the WWF and WCW could be because of style? In the WWF, whenever a wrestler is being interviewed in the ring or cutting an in-ring promo, they almost never look directly into the camera.
In WCW on other hand, all you see is Kevin Nash or Goldberg leaning over the top rope, talking to the camera. Or Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan looking into the camera as they get interviewed by Gene Mean. As a fan, if you're in the crowd, and the wrestler talks to the camera, never looking out over the crowd, would you feel like a part of the show, or a spectator?
The only one in WCW getting any heat on the mic is Jeff Jarrett, and does WWF-style promos (walking around the ring, looking into the crowd ).
I realize a lot has to do with WCW's product being horrible, and WWF being great. But in a two hour show, the WWF's first 15-20 min. segment is ONE PROMO. It's gotta factor into the equation somehow. Just a thought.
I just rented and watched Great American Bash '89 which includes: Sting vs Muta, War Games with The Road Warriors, Midnight Express and Dr. Death vs The Wild Samoans, The Fab Freebirds and Terry Gordy, and, of course, the Funk vs. Flair world title classic.
Anyway, when Jim Ross was talking up the Funk vs. Flair match he said that Funk refers to himself as middle-aged and crazy. So, what does that make him now?? Drawing social security and crazy??? Just a thought.
While searching IMDB to see what Rudy Ray Moore (of the Dolemite series) is up to, I noticed that he has a new movie..."Big Money Hustlas". Rudy is a master of cheesy martial arts in his career of blaxploitation movies, including Dolemite, and Disco Godfather.
Well, looking at the cast list it appears he has a small character. But the main characters are none more embarrassing than ICP. On a good note, and my main point I might add, Mick Foley stars as Cactus Sac!!! Don't believe Charlie? Look here!
