Under normal circumstances I would ask what the fuck you are on about, but maybe not being able to comprehend what the fuck you are wittering on about is probably best all round.

The idea behind the title is that wrestlers are often perceived as over the top, or larger than life, and indeed the nature of what they do is hyper-real. As Danny and Marty say in the teaser, these were heroes and larger than life characters. Seeing fans respond to wrestlers at shows, even smaller wrestlers like Mark Andrews, you can still see that same feeling with people.So Supermen isn't named after a certain muscle-mass or weight category, its people that achieved a dream.

Thanks for that Kubrick.

Is there a reason you're spitting out these unnecessarily snarky comments or do you think you've hit on a good thing here?
I went with the good thing suggestion a few days back for him, I'm yet to find a person on here who contributes so little with every post they make than him.Looks interesting enough though.
