The Official "WWE" Thread
« on: May 6, 2003, 12:12 AM »



Who here loves the WWE?  I've been a huge fan for the last 3 years, and it's almost impossible getting me away from the TV when Smackdown or RAW is on TV.  I occassionally will order one of the special shows on PPV, but that is quite rare (too much money for a show, even though they're great to watch).

Who's your favorite character?  Who do you most resemble?  What do you like watching better... Smackdown or RAW?

Let this be the thread where anything goes... as long as it involves the WWE.  If you have any spoilers please make sure you mention that at the beginning of your post.  Thanks!

I think Carrie might be - or is that only UFC she digs?  Not my thing, but I do think that the Fabulous Thunderlips was one helluva stud back in the day when I was a kid.  Sure kicked Rocky's a$$ handily!   ;D

Hey Scott, who's that guy shaking Hogan's hand?

Did you know that Hulk Hogan right now is going by Mr. America???

I do love wrestling, but not WWE so much. I'm more of a Japanese wrestling and Indy wrestling fan, and Mixed-Martial Arts (Pride and UFC) is my main thing. I usually don't have much to add to WWE threads because I'm primarily disgusted with the current state of "big" wrestling, and don't care much anymore. If you want to talk Indy promotions, I'm all there, though.  :)

I'm bumping this back up to the top, to see if there's any newcomers that are intersted in the WWE.

Anyone?

I like wrestling but like CC I am very discouraged with the state that the WWE is in now. 3 of my favorites are highly misused Hurricane, RVD and Booker T. Once it's gets better and GOD aka HHH doesn't run everything I'll get into it again.
I remember my dream now.

I don't watch wrestling like I used to. Its not the same as it was years ago. My best memories will always be The Hart family just south of me in Calgary.
I miss Owen.   :'(



Best Comedian Wrestler, George The Animal Steele.  ;D



Then there was this match.  8)

Back in the day I for some reason loved King Kong Bundy...the way he destroyed the JYD in Wrestlemania must of had something to do with it...

That match Dale is one of the classics!

I went to a match in the old Met Center when I was around 10 which featured a steel cage match between Ricky the Dragon and the Macho Man.  I knew then and there that wrestling was faker then hell and the illusions of TV were shattered.  It was so obvious the matches were rigged that I never really watched after that

The WWE is almost like a soap opera... they're both fake as hell but very entertaining.  Of course the WWE is fake.  If it were real it would have to only be shown on PPV like they do with Chamipionship Fighting tournaments.

I used to hate watching the WWF when I was a kid.  My best friend from high school always kept asking me to go to the local event when they came to town, and I always turned him down.  Now I wish I had gone to those events, because it was a lot better back then than it is now.

Granted it's fake, but it sure is entertaining!

What are you talking about that those three are being misused?  They get plenty of airtime, but I would love to see the Hurricane get a title shot.  He's awesome to watch.

And I'm sick of HHH... I think it should be "game over."

Yep, good old WrestleMania 3. Those were the days.  :)

I found this picture I took just around that match when the gang came to town. That front row seating was the best. When Andre came out, there was silence. Man, was he huge.  :o

Those were some awesome seats you had there Dale.  I wish I had seen him in person, but now we have "The Big Show" to watch.  He's HUGE!
