  1. Agree with most of what you're saying, but I find it hard to agree that Taker wasnt an attraction. Vince didn't dust him down for Mania after Mania and pay him bazillions to do the Middle Eastern shows for the hell of it, he did it because Big Mark moves the needle and draws tickets, buys and ratings. If Taker wasn't an attraction then who is?

  3. I genuinely believe it was that Vince considered him a special attraction. There's a Kurt Angle shoot interview where Kurt says something along the lines of "Vince told me I didn't need a belt as I had become a special attraction, like Taker. And I could draw without needing the belt". Now this could have been Vince working both guys to avoid telling them straight why they aren't having a run with the strap but I believe Taker reached that enviable position of being a legendary special attraction that people wanted to see.
  4. He was a top guy for a very long period in a tough cut throat business which deserves immense respect and he became an attraction that didn't need the belt.
  5. Ever since this thread brought it to my attention I've been keeping tabs on the absolute crackpot deranged lunacy of Sean Morley's twitter account. He was posting numerous times each day in frantic angry paranoid conspiracy outbursts against "leftist commies". I've noticed his account has now been deleted which is a shame as it was entertaining if nothing else. I think Morley has gone off the deep end or is taking too many marijuana pills.
  6. I loved Taker from start to finish in his career but I've been embarrassed by his right wing bullshit t-shirts out side the ring. To be fair, the locker room of yester-year crammed with angry, drunken, roided, coked up, whore banging, tobacco chewing, dead-by-40 characters probably _would_ intimidate the fuck out of the current clean living, acrobat, video game, Hasbro collecting, just-happy-to-be-there crew. But that doesn't make them better or worse. Just two completely different cultures / eras.
  7. This. Ultimate Warrior's last in-ring performance in 2008 in Madrid against Orlando Jordan. He drew an impressive crowd looking back at it, but they match kinda stunk the joint out. The finish was horrendous.
  8. Isn't Tammy in the tin pail? How do we know she's a Trumpfuck? *edit: I've found the tweet. Surprise, surprise she hashtagged #whitepower still find it baffling Trump has managed to legitimise this underbelly of American society.
  9. I watched a WWE ECW round table with Heyman, Taz, Dudleys and Dreamer and they talked about who would be beside Heyman on the ECW Mount Rushmore. The faces I see when I think of ECW are Shane Douglas, Sandman, Raven, Taz, New Jack, Dudleys and RVD. That doughy T-shirt wearing nerd Tommy Dreamer never got over with me, neither did Stevie Richards. Justin Credible always felt like he was punching above his weight too.

    Back in the early 2000s I reckon the best thing would have been to turn her heel and book her as a stable/cult leader with a band of female talent around her (Like Taker in the ministry days). She would not wrestle much apart from the odd squash on PPV and heelish bullying on TV then build a star over a long period to eventually face her at Mania. And then by the time that had ran its course the business would have evolved to the current state of high performance women who she could work competitively with. I'd have loved to see her work with the current crop of world class female talent
  11. Holy fuck, his twitter feed is an absolute cluster fuck of petrified nonsense. He thinks EVERYONE is s communist.
  12. I'd completely forgotten Giant Haystacks' run as Loch Ness in Dubiya Cee Dubiya until the other day.
