If I didn’t know better, I’d say that Darren Aronofsky based his movie “The Wrestler” entirely on Scott Hall’s life and times. Growing up watching wrestling, I remembered the first time they introduced Razor Ramon as he walked down the South Beach street with a toothpick in his mouth and his utterance of ‘chico’. I remember the epic ladder match he had with Shaun Michaels at Wrestlemania. I remember those badass NWO days at WCW. And to see him now in the dismal abyss of substance abuse is utterly depressing. Lets all hope that Scott Hall can muster up the strength to pick himself up again and raise his hands in victory. You have our support buddy…and a metal chair if need be!
I’m going to be honest, I don’t watch wrestling anymore and maybe that’s because I’m used to the good old days of wrestling…the days when NWO, DX and ECW used to fcuk up your head with awesomeness and not this new crop of wrestling I like to term the Diet Coke of Wrestling. As much as I would like to bash the hell out of the current state of wrestling, lets bask in the golden memories of the good ol’ days with a few clips. If you feel a certain clip should be included below, feel free to add a link in the comment section and we will promptly add it to our collection.
The ECW Chair Incident
You all probably know now that I grew up in the 90′s and anything produced after then 90′s holds little value to me, except maybe the emergence of internet pron. Recently, I’ve been trying to get in WWE, been watching it scantily here and there but it doesn’t stick for me. Wrestling for me is WWF, Jake The Snake Roberts, Brett Hart, The Brooklyn Brawler, The Rockers, Legion Of Doom, Demolition, Earthquake, The Ultimate Warrior and with Bobby Heenan, Gorilla Monsoon and Vince McMahon commenting. I found and am posting the entire Royal Rumble from 1992 to help you and me reminisct about the good ol’ days of wrestling. Enjoy.
Chuck Taylor And His Slow-Motion Grenade Finisher Deserves Some Recognition For Being So Damn Entertaining
You got to give some props to the promoter CHIKARA for embracing the fact that wrestling is fake..much like ECW tried to push it in the most realistic direction possible…CHIKARA is pushing the envelope by exploiting how fake it is, making a parody of the business in it’s own right, and making it fun and fresh again.
