Can I have a picture of Barry Darsow doing the Barely Legal? Barry is my favorite WCW wrestler..
Surprisingly, I don't have a picture of
Barry Darsow doing the Barely Legal lying around.
Can anyone help?
Hey, we do the same show again . . . once!
Nice to see your name in 'I get letters' at [slash].
>>In real life, Juvie's got a point...the receiver of a tope/plancha is supposed

>>But in the kayfabe world, why would Liger catch you?
Kayfabe world, hmm, sounds familiar, but I can't really place it . . .
I think Mr. Kay Fabe got fired shortly after Russo and Mr. Ed took over. They have no use for something like that. (And here or [slash] isn't the only place you can see me lately :)
Hey, likewise I
don't understand why every match needs a run-in
or something happening to alter the outcomes of
matches under the Russo Regime. I love the
fact that Chris Benoit is in the main events with
Hall, Nash and others. I love the fact that Bret
Hart is the world champion, I love the fact
that the young guys are finally getting their
shot but I don't understand why when Kevin Nash
fights Goldberg, he also fights Hall,
who is fighting off Sid, and they get helped by
Bret Hart, until Jeff Jarrett finds his way down
and clocks someone over the head with a guitar.
Some of these matches are so overbooked it's
ridiculous. I wish we could have a good blend of
wrestling and sports entertainment on Nitro and
Thunder. WCW certainly has the talent to
carry a 10 minute match and great storylines to
go with it.
IIRC, Vince Russo once responded to a Bob Ryder 1wrestling.com column saying that kind of thing about the WWF by saying "no one wants to see Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. for twenty minutes." Russo's of the opinion that fans use long matches as an excuse to flip the channel to see what else is on, so he's not going let that happen by keeping all the matches short. That's what he'll keep doing until he gets proved wrong.
In reading your report for
Thunder, you mentioned that they showed still
clips of some Nitro Girls' segments from Monday
while they showed actual video from most
everything else. When they did that I was
thinking that the reason might be TBS is more
strict on what they can show and the scenes they
showed still clips of were the food fight scenes
where jello and other foods were smeared
gratuitously on the women's breasts. just
I think the deal with the Grip is that it paralyzes you, you fall, both shoulders down, boom. Just like when they count pins while someone is being figure-foured if they fall back, except that never happens, and this always happens. So, it's a submission move that happens to make pinfalls really really easy.
and Neil A....
For what it's worth, the death grip is technically a submission move but since everyone sells it like a sleeper and the arm raise doesn't really look right when the guy is on his back it's treated by refs as a pinning combination. They usually do the same think for the mandible claw in WWF.
