Random Thoughts III.

Virgil was one of my favourite wrestlers, and I’d not clocked until now that a lot of that was probably the SummerSlam 91 match - that was my first PPV so it was probably only the second match I’d ever seen between two proper wrestlers. The storyline and the match had Virg looking great. I feel like I got into wrestling in that very short window where Virgil seemed like a top boy. I was livid when Repo Man fucked him over not long after.

Not really sure where to put this, it's far too minor to even qualify as minor 'news' but I just found it interesting so going to put it in here:

This has resulted in some interesting debate amongst wrestlers on Twitter. Well, debate in the same way that all the other captains debated with Redbeard Rum about whether it was common maritime practice for a ship to have a crew or not.

Pretty much everyone from Ethan Page (who has said he'll buy the bloke a new briefcase) to Ricochet to Brian Pillman Jr to Jimmy Havoc to Vampiro has said it's a dick move. The lone voice of dissent in all this is good old Eugene, who supports the "don't bring it if you don't want me to smash it up" theory.

Seems to me like it's pretty easy to ask before going out there "hey, mind if I smash your gear up to get heat? No, ok."

What think you?

What I like best about that story is that I’ve seen more about that than CM Punk’s supposed return doing in a run-in under a mask and hitting the GTS at MKE Wrestling. Silas Young (who was running the show( has said it was him and the event also featured Punk’s mate Ace Steel.

Ofcourse there is always the chance that the whole thing is complete horseshit and they’re just trying to get any form of publicity using Punk’s name, but if that is a “return” and it’s not  caused so much as a ripple of mass interest amuses me greatly

Seems a bit of a bully boy tactic to smash someones gimmick up. He's got it airbrushed, too, so he's went the lengths to make the briefcase apart of his gimmick. Its not like he's just got a prop. He's obviously invested time and money in it, so for someone to smash it up without telling him previously, is bullshit really.

I do wonder if Eugene was wrestling and suddenly, someone student from OVW decided to rip his Eugene jacket up in front of him, would he still have the same opinion? Usually the idea of destroying someones gimmick, be it stealing Tatanka's headdress or cutting the arms of Flair's robe, its done to build something. Not just smash it up randomly.

Does CM Punk not strike you as the type of person who has complete control of everything he does in his life and career right now? There's absolutely no way he's just letting someone use his name for publicity. He's known Ace Steel and Dave Prazak for donkey's years. Claiming that it's him and it's not makes no sense at all, you might as well just use him if he's masked.

Personally I think it's the sort of surprise wrestling needs more of, as much as I've soured on Punk over the years.

Punk's better off without. He's been Colt Cabana's meal ticket for years now. I mean, Punk's a tosser himself but at least he's aware of it whereas Cabana is blissfully unaware of how insufferable he is.

Saw the video, that is not a CM Punk return. Not only do the mannerisms not look like his at all, but even if it is him it’s under a mask, not advertised and in front of 250 people. It’s like Tom Delong getting pissed and doing karaoke, then people saying he has gotten back into music. Nah, just a bit of fun

Pretty much this, it's him having a laugh with his mates and they can have a chuckle at "the internet" after.
