Yeah, it's easy to make it unpredictable when there's a script.

I used to love the WCCW and never really enjoyed any of the other rasslin incarnations. My brother's baseball team got to appear on an episode of Championship Sports one time when they won some tournament. We got to meet a handful of wrestlers backstage before their appearance.

Did Ric Flair teach you that? He's the master.

I remember right about the time I quit watching rasslin (possibly the reason I quit) Steve Austin was on the floor, and the camera caught him roll down, lift up the ring flap, grab a coke cup full of red goo, throw it on his forehead, and then pretend like he got cut.

Default Implosion video from the inside

Here's a 360-degree view of the stadium implosion. Quite a sight.

Wow! It took 5 posts to get off-topic and 18 to get back on.


Now back to our regularly scheduled hijacking.

Heh, reminds me of watching wrestling with my grandmother. She always got carried away. Almost as entertaining as the match itself.
