I used to love WWE!! My favorites were always the Rock and Tajiri. Nowadays, I just ocasionally watch it to get some Monday/Thursday night humor. I now find it pretty fake, but who am I to say this. I used to love it!!
Is it just me...or does the masked Kane look much much cooler than the fat bald guy now :lol: !?!?

I kind of prefer fat, bald Kane. It makes him look much freakier to me. I really liked it when he was escorted to the ring in shackles, and only unchained to wrestle: I thought it was a great visual.

Of course, that only lasted like, two weeks.

I don't like this face turn for Kane. It just doesn't work.

And wooo, this week WWE is live in UK.

I'll still end up watching it on the weekend. Sky Sports is a premium challen folks. :wink:

I haven't watched wrestling in a while, since the storylines are getting a little too retarded for my liking, but I still buy the games; I plan on buying Smackdown vs. Raw when it comes out.


Anyway, my favorite wrestlers of all-time are:

Stone Cold Steve Austin

Rob Van Dam ("The Whole F'n Show")

Triple H ("The Game")

Kevin Nash (When he was "Big Daddy" Diesel)

Scott Hall (When he was "The Bad Guy" Razor Ramon)


My favorite matches of all time are:

Every TLC match between Edge & Christian, The Dudley Boyz, and the Hardy Boyz.

Dave Chappelle (as Prince): "Well, why don't you purify yourself in the waters..of Lake Minitanka?"

I've always thought masked Kane was much cooler, in part because he rarely ever said anything, and you didn't have to watch his oftentimes bad acting (like that whole angle with Linda McMahon? That was just silly). But I can understand why after about five years in the mask you get tired to having to wrestle with it on (and sweating, bleeding, etc.). The whole effort to make him "more evil" has only made him seem more normal, instead of the almost superhuman persona he had before (chokeslamming two guys at once, fighting in a ring surrounded by fire, etc.)

Even Kane's costume was much cooler before...his entrance music was also better. Ahhh yes...the good old days where he took down like three guys with chokeslams....

I was wondering if Rikishi is still around....that guy used to be pretty cool... :lol: ...

I don't know, I haven't seen Rikishi in years. I don't really miss him, though - a guy that uses his ass as his main offense doesn't really appeal to me all that much! If I worked for WWE I would sign a contract that would ensure I would never have to be Stink-Faced!

A funny story to relay to you - I actually met Perry Saturn and Terri near WWE New York a few years ago (a bit before the whole "Moppy" gimmick). They were eating at a cafe, and the first thing I noticed was how short Perry was! A friend of mine, who was with me, asked for an autograph, but he politely declined.

I've also gotten a shirt signed by Funaki while he was visiting. There wasn't exactly a long line, so I figured, what the hell. So now as a funny conversation piece I've got one of those shirts with the round red circle in the middle and "Evil" on top of it signed by Funaki.

Rikishi milked an injury for extra time off, and while he was 'too hurt' to wrestle at WWE shows, he still found the time to wrestle at a show set up by his family. Once he was fully healed, he was given his walking papers.

I was never a Rikishi fan, but to give you just a little more information....

Rikishi, after the situation described by Xiahou Mao, found himself offered a lucrative contract to work for All Japan Pro Wrestling, which is currently in a business slump. He's also involved in the Hustle promotion in Japan.

Apparently, he's not quite as fat and useless as he has been over the last two years.
