  1. What do you think Tom Magee meant by "Whether I'm performing in front of a hundred thousand fans or walking down the street with just a few people, the one constant in that it's still my own experience of life"? I do often wonder why people crave fame and fortune so much. I can't think of any megastars that are super happy. Sure, it beats poverty, but has a tendancy to throw one's life way out of balance to the point where normal every day things just don't do it for you any longer (hence why so many celebrities go off the rails). To use a wrestling analogy, it's how so many fans grew tired of a product they once enjoyed during the hotshotting era of the late 90s.
  2. I dunno. He had one of the best trainers in the business and a fair amount of time and matches to try and improve. He was good at other things (powerlifting, martial arts etc), but just didn't take to wrestling / pretend fighting for whatever reason. Like many things in life, it comes naturally to some people whilst others really struggle to get the hang of it.
  3. Seems the reason there was full production and commentary for the bout was that it was intended to air in the UK on WoS! :
  4. It was at a TV taping (in Lacrosse, WI on 16th May 1989) so it probably was filmed, but no footage is out there. According to Bret himself the match wasn't very good anyway: https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCircle/comments/8fo8lz/met_bret_hart_today_talked_about_bret_vs_magee_ii/
  5. I was at a AJPW show in Kyoto, Japan in 2008 whilst Silver King was on tour with them. After his match he came out and stood at the back of the hall to watch the other matches - seemed like a really nice, easy going and modest bloke who loved wrestling.
  6. Who was the doctor that got puked on by Ultimate Warrior in May 1992? See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbLH8Npfzxs I recognize Rene Goulet but not any of the others. Somebody suggested the doctor might be Kevin Dunn, but I'm not so sure.
  7. I really want to know who the ring announcer was for my first live show, in Belfast on April 15th 1992 (part of the European Rampage Again tour). It was a bloke, but definitely not the Fink. Obviously wasn't Mike McGuirk (who was with the other crew on the tour who did the televised show in Sheffield). If you were at the Dublin show on the 16th, the Glasgow one on 17th or the Birmingham one on the 18th, you'd have seen the same crew. I'm thinking it could have been Tony Chimel, but not sure if he was announcing that early on. I don't *think* it was Mel Phillips, but can't be 100% sure.
