    It defies logic in the sense that they will only now get title shot after their "mate" gets defeated by some dastardly heel. Also if you accept Babyface v Babyface was very rare, it would be inaccurate to call them "rivals" when they never compete against each other.

    But both of your examples are of one competitor congratulating another. I cringe when all the babyfaces pile in the ring, it looks forced to me and after a few seconds nobody knows quite what to do? The NWA did this loads of times and usually for a wrestler who's title reign was short or when the wrestler is maybe not quite at the level of World Champion, so everyone enters the ring to give them "the rub" a bit like when Bret Hart won the belt and Luger & Tatanka etc. held him above their shoulders. It's just awkward and defies logic.

    Sorry to split hairs, but the interview is after Race regained the title and therefore making Tommy Rich the ex-Champion. I always cringe when you see the locker room empty to "celebrate" a new champion. I get that it is to put over the magnitude of the win, but logically a babyface win would hurt other babyfaces from receiving a shot at the belt, if the majority of matches are Heel v Babyface? Also if you accept that back then wrestling was portrayed as a sport, is there any other sports that you would see an individual win celebrated by rivals? I can't really imagine Cliff Lazarenko/Eric Bristow and Alan Evans jumping for joy, when Jocky Wilson won the World Darts Championship!

    What is the best drink?

    Yeah but i said "gassy", which in my world means anything a bit fizzy, not necessarily a direct reference to actual gas.

    What is the best drink?

    I am probably on my own here. I have always really enjoyed the sensation of drinking a beer and doing what i would describe as a "reverse gassy belch" when instead of doing an oral belch, it comes out of your nose. Just a real nice smell and taste of beer, coming back up.

    It must have been hot in the recording studio, everyone looked extremely sweaty. I love the way that when Otto Wanz gets a couple of KO victories against Andre and Vader, he gets the locker room to pile in to celebrate like a pin fall win!

    It was Crazy Dave Adams. He is the father of Johnny Angel who tagged against Big Daddy in a lot of Daddy's matches at the end of his career, under a mask. Angel returned years later for the FWA. I enjoyed watching both Adams and Angel wrestling and saw Angel have a great match against Tony Stewart, back when British Wrestling was in very rough shape and good matches were few and far between.

    Yes or worse, but they were not pretending to be Road Warrior Hawk. I actually went to a "tribute" show that Ricky Knight came out as "Animal" and the MC said "Animal's luggage had got lost at the airport" to justify the fact he had no armour plating or whatever you call the real Road Warrior's gear and he came out with similar costume (with beer gut) and face paint.

    Not really. He was past his prime and while "in shape" to a degree, you could not compare him to Hawk because he was probably 10 years older and somewhat flabby by comparison.

    His punches look like a cat swatting a wasp.

    Well let's face it, he certainly never got by on his wrestling ability. His look was so good that it almost hid the fact that he was rotten in the ring.

    Biggest Name To Never Work WWE

    Also besides Jim Cornette, i don't believe a single member of The Midnight Express has worked The WWE. So that's Bobby Eaton, Norvell Austin, Dennis Condrey, Randy Rose and Stan Lane (Lane perhaps worked a show or two as a Heavenly Body?). I have not included "The New Midnight Express" because i found the rehashing of the team quite offensive, not that i have an issue with Bob Holly or Bart Gunn.

    Broner has no shame. How he can swear and threaten the interviewer, while getting booed out of the building by the crowd who knew he lost easily is beyond me?

    Check out the cut Badou Jack sustained! *Warning* it looks like an axe wound.
