I don't think that Scott Steiner should be calling anyone a freak
BTW screw Hogan, BACKLUND FOR PREZ !!
Heck, yes! Tell those plebians what's up! Where has Mr. Backlund gone anyway? I was hoping he'd come on Nitro one week and apply a cross-face chicken wing to Big Poopa Pump.
Hmm, my grammar checker is telling me that I misspelled a word somewhere, but I cannot place which one. :)
Oh, here is something off the rumor mill. Did you hear that Scott Steiner plans to market a new arcade game? It's in the fashion of old-school vertical view shooters and simply titled "Roids." Eat your heart out, Capcom!
Like you, I was extremely disappointed in Black Magic's ridiculous squash by Horace. As one of those lucky enough to see Smiley's legendary dark match victory over La Parka at Nitro last year, I'm well aware of what this man can do in the ring. I've read he wrestles in a mask overseas, maybe it's not too late to let him don his mask here and join the cruiserweight ranks as a championship contender. Ahh, who am I kidding? Next week they'll probably just let Glacier and Ernest "No, I'm not the drummer from KISS" Miller kick his ass.
Yeah, I was quite pissed about last week's matchup. I could see Scott Norton getting the squash victory or even Scott Steiner, as both men have paid their dues in this business. When I saw Horace walk out to the nWo music, my jaw dropped. On the flip side, kudos to Norman Smiley for doing like Arn Anderson before him and being professional enough to job to one of "Hogan's Heroes."
Now, all I have left to see is Disciple finishing off Doc Dean and Lenny Lane with a twin Apocalypse and I will have seen it all. Sigh....
I just want to comment on your obsession with jobbers. Who the hell cares about the Armstrongs? Yeah Yeah their dad is the legendary "Bullet" Bob Armstrong and Steve was one half of the great tag team the Southern Boys. So what! Scott and Steve suck. First of all they have the gayest tights in the history of wrestling. They suck in their matches because they can't sell moves worth a damn and make the match look fake. As for Norman Smiley, he has better ring skills but his tights look gay also and he definitely needs to change his name if he wants to go anywhere. Finally, these guys are jobbers they get paid to get beat up because nobody cares about them. They have zero charisma, and that is what 90% of wrestling is all about.
Now, if I was obsessed with jobbers, many of you would read an article in tomorrow's newspaper about a wrestling fan arrested, then taken to a mental institution for throwing rocks at Smiley's house to get his attention. Anyway, let us further examine my alleged "obsession," shall we? Yes, I think Smiley's an awesome wrestler, as I do with the Armstrongs, Lenny Lane, and Doc Dean. Six guys. You could form a stable with six guys, but not an entire group of jobbers, especially in WCW. Furthermore, I suppose that I fawn over the technical prowess of Rick Fuller? The rock-hard physique of Roadblock? The patriotism of Fidel Sierra? The revered win-loss record of Barry Horowitz? (The pats on the back indicate how many wins he gets per year.)
I suppose you could also tell a person who marks for the Wolfpac that (s)he is obsessed with them, too? Check your facts next time.
As for the Armstrongs, I'll let this link speak for itself.
My point of this message (yes, there is one) is that people have a right to cheer whomever they want, regardless of opinion. Whether it be The Horsemen, Raven and Kanyon, or even the Wolfpac, different people favor different talent. It's just that some people need to get off their damned high horse and accept the fact that there are people like myself out there who choose to cheer the underdog.
Last night on a special presentation of the nationally syndicated radio show, Rockline, their guests were Aerosmith, fresh off their concert Monday night in Minneapolis. The first call came from "Governer-Elect, Jesse 'The Body' Ventura!"
The first question, of course, is about him running for President. Ventura said he wouldn't, since anyone who takes the job "four years later they look like they've aged 20 years!" The announcer made a remark about getting grey hair, Jesse replied that was why he shaved his head. Steve Tyler snuck in a remark about how "the more hair you lose, the more head you get."
When asked what he planned to do for the state of Minnesota, Jesse said he wanted to "help people live as individuals and prosper." Commenting on his own "socially moderate to liberal" stance, he said the other candidates swung too far to the left or right, while 75% of the Minnesota population voted down the middle and weren't interested in either extreme.
The announcer asked about the discussion concerning the building of a new stadium. Ventura said the Metrodome was only 16 years old and wasn't in need of replacement, mentioning that the football team he voluntarily coaches has a 6-year-old stadium that also doesn't need replacing. "Nobody bitched when the Twins won the series" twice was his response to the current condition of the arena.
Finally, he gave kudos to Aerosmith, calling them the "premiere rock & roll band in America." He invited them to his inauguration, but from the response of the band, they seemed to politely decline.
