Looks like this community went the way of the dodo....anybody looking at this besides myself?
Let's get out and pimp this mother, first new topic of discussion: You got any upcoming wrestling shows you've got tickets for?
I'm Davey by the way.....hello :)
Any thoughts or premonitions on this weekend's ppv?
Personally i think we're in for a lacklustre affair. Hopefully Shelton and 'Kerwin' will put on a wrestling clinic, and i'm optimistic that hbk and angle will drag decent displays out of Chris Masters and 'the chav' respectively.
Big show/snitsky...dear lord...
My hopes are set for Hardy/edge. I hope this delivers to the degree of many of their early extreme encounters, although Edge's bump taking abilities have obviously decreased post-surgery...
Paul Burchill is on Smackdown!!!
As this is the first post of the community, i'll post some of my earliest grap-realted memories...
I, as may other fans in the U.K. was raised on , at least initially, World Of sport. Like my school days, i try to forget about this period of my life and pretend that it never happened. Unfortunately my grandfather stil calls me Catweazle. The bastard just won't let it die...
I never liked big Daddy. The only reason i remember Giant Haystacks is that he once visited Guernsey and ha to have seats removed from the small plane he travelled o to get his ample frame in to the vehicle. The first wrestler to stick firmly in my mind was...Jimmy Snuka. I remember watching his dive from the top of the cage, as would a young Mick foley, and that was it, i was hooked. It didn't matter that it wasn't 'real' and i don't really enjoy shoot matches much to this day. It was one of those moments where you really couldn't believe what had just happened (although calling it sublime may be taking it a bit too far). Compared to today's highspots it was tame, but as a four year old kid watching with your great grandmother, it was 'off the hook'.
Incidentally, my great gran died a few years back. The last match i saw with her was Edge and CXhristian vs The Hardy Boys.She thought E and C sucked, even though in her late 80s she still wouldn't have minded oiling up Edge. Truly the Amy Dumas of her day.
