  1. I really wouldn't get too excited by these things, many multinational energy companies have these and far more gimmicks up their sleeve, yet still are involved in human slavery, coup d'etat plots and all kinds.
  2. @BomberPatI was thinking of posting this as a separate thread considering the scope, what's everyone's thoughts?

  4. There's a belief in pro-wrestling that your stars should never look like they've just walked in off the street. Give the fans something unique, something they'll never see in their day to day lives. Legion of Doom fitted that description perfectly.
  5. Could be awkward coming home from the pub and accidentally knocking back half a bottle of the recently deceased family pet.
  6. I'd pay reasonable money for a Rick Martel Arrogance cologne.
  7. I seen something the other day about Barbados offering 2 year remote worker visas for Brits wanting out due to covid. UPDATE Scrap that, complete lies from myself, it was Bermuda offering the visas. Here's the link https://www.gotobermuda.com/workfrombermuda?gclid=CjwKCAjwwab7BRBAEiwAapqpTDIX4cWrZBicTz4I41SkqFsdJV7YJudzrtyXzcdUlmi052VHwz6WuxoCHVEQAvD_BwE
  8. Back to the noughts for me Clive! Pringles Ridges were great along with the original Walkers Snax in the crisp shaped packet, not the ones they've currently got on sale which are terrible.
  9. One of my favourite movies of all time is The Day of the Jackal starring Lonsdale as the detective Claude Lebel hunting down the Jackal. I think it's his best English speaking role as he plays it without the usual high drama that on-screen detectives of that era would have to ham up. Also as mentioned, his short part in Ronin was magnified by his presence alone.
  10. I think the idea to micromanage has always been there but due to financials and other things, it was more of a slow boil than an instant change. You could say his developmental system of 1998 (DSW, HWA, UWA) was the first hint of trying to micromanage, in this case up and coming talent. I'd say Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara leaving for WCW was the noticeable starting point. I got the feeling that Vince didn't like the idea of solely relying on one person to deliver the goods when it came to the in-ring product, so he spread the load so if one person leaves, the majority remains in place
  11. I don't think there will be a 10th wonder of the world in wrestling. Unless some 10ft tall Prometheus looking bloke turned up on Raw, I just don't see anything being that special to justify the moniker these days.
  12. The plane transfer stunt still holds up 27 years on. Renny Harlin sadly was the victim of his Geena Davies double bill (Cutthroat Island and Long Kiss Goodnight) bombing at the box office and his preference for 'big action'. After CI bombed and LKG failed to live up to expectation, Hollywood wouldn't offer Harlin the big budget scripts that get the best out of him, thus the man was fucked really.
  13. Homeland - Started off brilliantly and I genuinely thought it would probably peak around series 5 or 6 with Brody being assassinated after working his way up the political ladder to become President. When it started to slowly become the Claire Danes show in series 2 and then fully in series 3, I switched off through sheer boredom. Same thing with Tom Quinn in Spooks, never the same after he left, though it was brilliant until his departure.
  14. It's 1998 and all the kids are wearing WCW Tex Slazenger T-Shirts with "Outlaw 3:16" on the front. Jim Hellwig...What have you done?
  15. I think the simplest explanation is personal preference and Vince's 'gut instinct'. You see it in football all the time, managers wake up one day and decide that the person in question just isn't the same player anymore and wants rid. Doesn't mean the manager is right, some go on and prove them wrong elsewhere, but it's hard for those players to convince stubborn managers they still have something to offer. In Randy's case, 1992 wasn't the easiest year for him with the divorce and all that, maybe Randy was burnt out from that and Vince interpreted it as 'he's past it' rather than scratch
