Wow, we have two five-on-five matches.

Remember when all of Survivor Series was teams?  Great PPV.

Oh, but then there was the Gobbldygooker!  Arrgh!

Hey guys, for all you old-school wrestling fans, here's something you might be interested in.  January 31st, and February 1st, 2004, in Charlotte, North Carolina, there's going to be the mid-atlantic Legends Fest.  Here's a current list of wrestlers that are scheduled to be there.
 

Saturday: Magnum T.A., Masked Superstar, Greg Valentine, Ron Garvin, Jimmy Valiant, Abe Jacobs, Don & Rocky Kernodle, Tommy Young

Sunday: The Rock-n-Roll Express, Tully Blanchard, Ivan Koloff, Johnny Weaver, George South, David Isley, Tommy Angel

Rumor has it that Ric Flair and Arn Anderson may show up, so, there may be a reunion of the 4 horseman.

I'm planning on being there, if you want more info. go to the website midatlanticlegends.com, where it's got the info.  It may be the last chance to see some of these former superstars, so aim for the top!

Um, isn't Magnum TA like horribly crippled or something? I assume that he's only going to be there for autographs and the like.

Yeah, he was hurt in a car accident. It's too bad too, he could have been something great, and I mean Hulk Hogan great.

Sorry, I should have been a little more specific, but yeah, it's all about autographs and seing the mid-atlantic/nwa wrestlers again.  A friend of mine that used to work in that promotion has said that there are others rumored to be there, including Abdhullah the Butcher, Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express, Baron von Raschke, Paul Jones, and more to come.  The cost, I believe, is 38 dollars for 2 days, but, the autographs are free, they'll have a ring in the middle, and the old stars will do promos, like in the past.  Jim Cornette may do his promo,/stand-up routine(and he's funnier than most of the stand-up on Comedy central).  This is just a great thing to go to, for fans of old-school, and may well be the last time a lot of these folks are in the same area together.  As I find out more, I'll post it.

As for survivor series, who thinks Goldberg's going to lose the belt to HHH? I think all dad-in-law Vince has to do is snap his fingers for that.  It's kind of a shame, since Goldberg has been a pretty good champ.

I rent WWE Smackdown Ė Here Come The Pain and I find the game very hard. I play as The Rock on Season mode and I wasnít happy when I try to win the WWE World tile of HHH. The Bra and Panties match was good. I guess itís something for the guys to play at all the time. I won it once as Tory Wilson.

Smackdown and Raw both showed the faces winning most of the matches. Which is weird as it was always my impression that the Heels should win before the PPV.

I'm glad they let Cena win with the chain. It's important for him to maintain that anti-hero type character, like stone cold.

I think we're past the era of the faces coming good at the pay-per-view, remember they used to always have the face walk out of Wrestlemania main event as the winner, but after Triple-H buggered that up at WM16, that rule's not so hard and fast anymore.

Shame really.

Yeah, the faces hardly even get a victory anymore. It's just the heels making them look like idiots over and over and over.

Surely there's only so much that you can play the 'heel getting one over the face' angle before that'll get tiring.  Nah, it's tiring now.

The bad guys are supposed to eventually get their come-uppance.

Sheesh, I sound like Bret Hart.

WCW wore out its welcome. I was a hardcore WCW fan ever since my grandfather showed me old tapes of NWA, which for those who don't know was the seed that created WCW.

After awhile I just couldn't take anymore NWO. But one of the best things about WCW was that it ispired WWF to take itself to new heights to compete. Sadly, they got too far ahead and there was no competition left, thus resulting in what you see today.   frown

the NWO stuff did grow tiresome, but like you said, without the competition the WWE has lost much of its appeal.

Thats why I hope NWA TNA gets a deal soon. I don't like TNA a lot, but they have good storylines and great athletes. And competing with WWE smells like big success for the wrestling bussiness.

Looks like team Bishoff won, Stone Cold's farewell to the fans was very touching. Let's hope that he doesn't return half the man he once was and tarnish his legacy (Hulk Hogan anyone?).

newhook, this is professional wrestling we're talking about here. He'll probably return before the year is out, either to feud with Bischoff or be over on Smackdown. When was the last time a "loser leaves town/federation/whatever" actually pulled off?

Yeah I know, but I had heard rumors that he was retireing permenitly anyway, so what better a time than what happened last night?

It's like the time Mr. Wrestling 666 lost a match where he couldn't wrestle in Newfoundland anymore and he was back like 4 months later.

He quit to play music with his band and to get away from the hectic schedule.

He later apeared in Ring of Honor(a small east coast wrestling promotion) and was heckled with chants of "You got fired" and "We want Matt." Needless to say he is pretty hated for reasons unknown.

So he has given up wrestling for awhile, and now he is only focusing on music.

Taker losing the buried alive match is a pre-cursor to going back to his 'dead man' gimmick, we believe.

You don't have to put spoiler, if they missed it, they probably aren't ever going to.

Alot of rumor is circulating around the issue of the dead man returning. I for one don't believe it will happen. But time will prove me wrong/right.

If your referring to the Dead Man early in his WWF career, I'd love to see it back.

Remember the grey sleeve-less shirts & purple hats, entrance with cloaked 'beings' and the beloved 'Casket Matches'.  love

Not so much as that, though.   roll eyes

Vinnie-Mac is a big fan of old-skool gimmicks, and 'Taker's "Biker Dude" gimmick was shite.  I'd love to see him return to the dead man, certainly as a final-round to his career, be fitting to return to the gimmick he had when he started (except when he was Mean Mark).

I think Takers biker gimmick is fine. Its important for gimmick wrestlers to evolve thier gimmick, so that they can be practical. People were only going to accept that Undertake was a demon for so long and taking Taker to the next level was a cool thing to do. I liked Biker UT from the begining.

My only hope is that he doesn't go completely back to the dead man gimick and keeps some elements.

What about 'Kane', and his gimmick change?

I liked the direction they were going with Kane. Its important for a guy like Kane to stay interesting and new. And repackaging is something that the WWE does with stars from time to time. In this case, they evolved Kanes character, and I can say my only complaint is his inability to beat Shane without a struggle, I found this profoundly stupid.

Would you guys have them evolve the Katie Vick angle? I think not. I think that a world title feud is exactly what he needs right now.
