Random Thoughts III.

Recommended Posts

Given the news concerning Wrestlemania, I wonder how the US TV contracts work in this current situation given that the WWE are supposed to supply "original programming"? If there is going to be a prolonged lock down thanks to COVID-19 that will go beyond the end of April (looking likely at this stage), then I wonder if they will "do an Impact" and try to film several episodes of Raw & Smackdown as a block over several days at the PC to give around 4 to 8 weeks or so of programming to supply? It might be something to consider given that if any of the roster are confirmed positive for coronavirus then that will surely halt production for an indefinite amount of time.

Goldberg perhaps? Other than Undertaker last year, has he been cleanly beaten?

Booker T has a pretty clean win over him on a Nitro in 2000.

 

EDIT: Wasn't nearly as clean as I remembered. Or clean at all.

Which wrestler jobbed the least in their career?

- Hogan?

- Warrior?

- The Sheik?

- Dusty Rhodes?

- anyone else spring to mind?

The original Sheik? He lost and drew quite a bit in his career.

What about Big Daddy?

Lesnar at WM33

Wow. Nothing highlights how little I watch any more! Just 3 years ago, I guess he still counts though. Twice overall?

On the records I have, Daddy lost five times between 1977 and his last match in 1993, though I believe they were all DQs.

Warrior lost a bunch of cage matches in 1991 but presumably by his opponent escaping. He also had the odd countout loss to Savage in early 89 and late 90 during their respective title reigns. As far as pinfall losses, in his entire WWF run I believe it was Andre on a European house show, Rude at WrestleMania V and Slaughter at Rumble 91, of which the last two were definitely screwy.

Honky Tonk Man had to be the guy who had the least amount of TV loses, who had the least amount of value (after his IC title loss.) This fucker had to take a guitar to the head to lose to Dusty Rhodes and a mega phone to the bonce against Bret Hart. Hogan had to even use piano from the ceiling to beat him on SNME. What was his logic there? It did him more harm than good in the long run.

Here is the Warrior vs Andre one, from a match in Cesena, Italy.

I was working in the bookies in 2007/2008, it was a slow morning so I put TWC on. Lasted about 25 minutes before my manager noticed, with the usual "what are you watching this shit for?" like he was my dad or something (he was a good bloke all the same). I can't be sure if I'm remembering it right, but whatever we were watching had Al Snow starting his match with a dance competition.

I’ve fallen victim to panic buying and have been buying random wrestling merch (no shock there) including this sweet as fuck WWF seat cushion from a show in 1988. Keep your bog rolls.

That's great. Where did you buy an item such as that? If you don't mind me asking was it costly?

It was cheap (relative) based on others I’ve missed out on in the past. Under £40 inc postage. Once in a while they pop up on obvious auction sites. There’s a Mania 24 seat cushion going for about £50 at the moment.

I’m going to make a proper stool/seat for the one pictured at the workshop over the next couple of weeks. Turn it in to a nice piece of furniture again, rather than going in a box in someone’s loft.
