Apropos of nothing, someone on a Queen forum reckons he stood behind the British Bulldog waiting for a hotdog at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in Wembley on April 20th 1992.

Did Tazz ever wrestle in Stockport at the Stockport Plaza ?

 

Was chatting with a friend and she was adamant there was wrestling there years ago and Tazz was on. I think it might be one of those tribute shows but shes convinced Tazz was the real person.

Was Sargent Slaughter an advocate for slaughter?

General Adnan was but for halal slaughter. That's my second quip about halal slaughter in as many minutes.

I always thought Sargent Laughter would have been a better gimmick.

It's Hugh Morrus in a beret. Not as good as it seems said out loud.

He was Sgt at first before GI Bro (Patiirc) made him a General, because in the scheme of armies GIs have the power to do that

 

Edit: No he wasn't, he was a Captain first.

When I went to see WWF at Whitley Bay Ice Rink in (I think) 93, there were people stood outside handing out a3 black and white photo copies featuring a report of Sid scissoring scandal.
To this day I don't know if it was a hard copy dirt sheet, a WWF ploy to make you not watch WCW due to their brutal ways, or an anti wrestling group.
Either way, my dad had a copier/fax machine. So I made about 50 copies, not knowing what it was and handed them out at junior school. A teacher saw one of the copies and banned me from swimming.

I wish to god I had a copy to read now.

WRESTLING T-SHIRTS FOR SALE - £6 each or £3 for £15, all original. WWF, ECW, CZW, Dragon Gate, NOAH and more.

I've just had a conversation where I've fully justified and explained James Ellsworth winning the Royal Rumble and what would happen leading up to WrestleMania.

I remember that! Believe it was a flyer for a wrestling hotline. Remember getting a few different ones at WWF shows in Cardiff around that time.

If it was that easy to get out of PE at our school, I'd have been handing out copies of Power Slam during play time.

 

I remember once, I printed out a load of CAWs for WWF Attitude and my Media Studies teacher took them off me. That was a shit day. Miss Crossland. She had a walk on part in Byker Grove and thought she was fucking Helen Mirren.

Hang on, you're my age and you could do Media Studies in school? I've never felt more from a podunk town.

It was basically, if you didnt do cooking, you did Media Studies. The teachers didnt give a shit about it, so it was pretty much 2 hours of having a laugh with your mates. Me and the UKFF's Mickfan were in the same class. All we did was story boards featuring a local newsreader called Mike Neville and the black bloke who read the news on the Big Breakfast or write up a radio broadcast with the Chuckle Brothers as guests. Me and Danny (Mickfan) were sitting there in Media one afternoon, and the teacher asked us “what is your favourite television show currently”, to which Danny turned to me immediately and said “don’t say Raw.” So he said the Richard Blackwood Show and I replied “Ali G.” We were both so desperate to not get the “fucking gay wrestling” insults.

Wasn't Mike Neville who Roger Mellie was based on? Was he really that bad?

 

And The Richard Blackwood show was the coolest thing in the world in 1999 or whenever it was. He's the British Will Smith.
