This looks like when a group of mates prank one lad by telling him they’re doing a fancy dress night out, and then everyone bar him shows up to the pub in normal clothes.  

Vince has turned into the Ronald Reagan graphic that greets Marty McFly in the Cafe 80s.  

I couldn't find a decent size image of the newer poster, so I made one.  Yes, it's the Survivor Series tomorrow night! Here's the card: Drew McIntyre (WWE) vs. Roman Reigns (Universal)

@Keith Houchen i bumped into you the day after Takers debut in HMV, they had 2 shops in town then, it was the one near the bird cage. Do you remember? You asked me who he was and i told you it was Mean Mark from WCW.....

It was a Saturday, i think SS 90’was shown on a friday night on Sky Movies back then. 

I think you had just turned 27 😅

I worked in one of those HMVs in town for a couple of years but it’s wasn’t near the birdcage, that was Our Price. 27? You cheeky fucker!

Yeh i know you worked in the other one, you were there just browsing. You worked in the one where Piper came to sign autographs in 92/3 sure you were working that day? You remember? I got my Piper spotlight Magazine signed by him. He was trying to flog his dodgy single.

 

sorry, 26

Remember for years people theorising how Undertaker's retirement was going to be handle, this great protector of kayfabe and the biggest and most beloved 'character' they've had, maybe he'll quietly go off into the night like the big deadman biker silently forever, so it feels odd to now be getting a vibe of when lads film their own holidays abroad instead.

Fuck, I just about remember that. I know we kept the signed picture up "out the way" because my parents thought it'd end up being worth something.

Ha! Yeah it was his video that he was promoting. Think it was some awful exercise one that involved him and inflatables. He did sign the I’m Your Man single for me, still got it. Far and away the nicest wrestler I’ve met. A total gent all day.

I bought that video for 50p at a car boot sale a few years after it was released, when I was about 10. It was called Fighting Fit, and it encouraged kids to stay fit by hitting an inflatable Undertaker that was referred to as "The Gravedigger". It was shite. 

EDIT: Here's some of the footage, which now looks like it's amazing for all the wrong reasons. 

"YOU'RE NOT MY DAD!!!!!"
