  1. I know i haven't talked about Wrestling for awhile, but this is something that is close to my heart. Yesterday, the greatest wrestling manager of all-time and one of the funniest and greatest commentators of all-time, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan has passed away at the age of 73. The way that he died are still unknown, but i rather want to talk about how he lived. Bobby Heenan was one of the most despised heels, in the first golden age of Wrestling in the WWE/WWF between the mid 80s and early 90s. He sometimes considered himself as the manager of champions, managing people like Mr.Perfect, King Kong Bundy, Haku and the legendary Andre the Giant who he managed at the legendary match between andre and Hogan at Wrestlemania 3. And during his stint in the AWA, he managed former AWA Champion Nick Bockwinkel. After taking a step back from managing, Heenan proved himself as not only a good, but also great commentator, together with his life long friend Gorilla Monsoon, who both for example commentated Ric Flairs Royal Rumble win in 1992, which is Heenans best commentary performance, fearing for Flairs win for a whole hours and almost having a heart attack. when WCW was trying to compete more and more with the WWE/WWF, they also brought Bobby Heenan on board, being the new full time commentator with Tony Schiavone and being joined mostly by either Larry Zbysko or "Iron" Mike Tenay. His last commentary was at Wrestlemania X-7 in 2001, where he returned to the WWE to call the gimmick battle royal with Mean Gene Okerlund, giving us a good sense of nostalgia and showing that Heenan still got it. The last few years of his life, he enjoyed his retirement, while also working with the WWE from time to time backstage. Here are some highlights from Bobby Heenans great career: Rest in Peace Bobby Heenan. I know that you're at a better place, being finally together with your friend Gorilla Monsoon.
  2. I know that i will probably open a big can of worms here, because i know for a fact that Goldberg was a childhood hero for alot of people. But for what is worth, i will say this. I have no problem with people liking this guy. This is just simply my opinion. And i also say that Bill is a very nice guy personally and is incredibly smart. Goldberg will always be remembered for being the guy, who had a over 170 winning long streak in WCW, until he got beat in a very anticlimactic way on Starcade 98 to Kevin Nash. He was the posterboy for WCW for most of 98 and he filled 40000 people in the georgia dome, the biggest Nitro ever, where he won the World title from Hulk Hogan. But if we put away the hype and the publicity and the character of him, i always thought that the guys abilities, where incredibly limited. Goldberg had the body of a wrestler, but he never got the abilities of a wrestler. And i will say the same thing that Kevin Sullivan said, when Goldberg arrived the first time in 97. If he is out there longer then 5 or 10 minutes, he will be exposed for what he dosen't know. He showed the spear, the Jackhammer and nobody thought about him till next week, until he came again and did the same thing. It probably worked for 30 or 40 matches in the streak, but once it came to that point, the people will speak up and say "you know, even superman has somekind of kryptonite, because if he dosen't, some day the people won't be behind him any longer, because they know what will happen." The problem with Goldberg in that regard was, that his gimmick was the streak and if he lost that streak, where do you take him from there? Look at his run in 99 and 2000. They absolutely had no idea. Goldberg was always 1 dimensional as a Wrestler and as a character. He is not better then Roman Reigns is today, because Roman is just as one dimensional as Goldberg. I know that people probably won't agree with me, but that's just my opinion.
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qnk4euU8lzk I know, it's just a trailer. But it already mostly sums up Jims feelings of that time. I just recently watched the whole shoot interview and Cornette, who i have a love/hate relationship with, since he likes to dump on the current wrestling product every chance he gets, i like to listen to his active time in the 80s and 90s. He is like your grandpa, who has his good and bad days. But if he's good, you are the best pals. WCW was just founded, after Ted Turner bought Jim Crockett Promotions and Jim Herd, who was running the company at the time, wanted to pretty much make it like a WWF clone, eventhough the guys in the south at that time, didn't wanted to see stuff like that, not to mention the main booker George Scott, who was an absolute goofball, had no idea of the current product at that time and had no idea about any of the NWA guys in the 80s, because he worked for Vince at the time and was only focused on WWF. If you come across the full shoot interview, through whatever means, please watch it. It's so great.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLH0b5UO2lg Granted, he didn't knew about the rise of the NWO, because that was a year before it. But if we look at it in retrospect, he was kinda right. The topcard guys (Hogan, Hall, Nash, etc) are all guys, who have huge egos, especially Hogan, who was never willing to put the young guys over at that time. And instead of pulling on a string together, the huge egomaniacs rather wanted to do stuff on their own. And after awhile, it was tiring to watch matches like Hogan vs. Piper (who was way past his prime BTW) for the one millionth time in a row. Why don't you put somebody like Sting, against a new upcoming star like Chris Jericho? Or why not find out what would happen, if Hogan would Wrestle Rey Mysterio for one Nitro? (granted, he would probably bury him, but you get my point.) Nope, we rather have Hogan vs. Flair again, while the Cruiserweights put on the better matches in the mid and undercard. It didn't matter to them in how shady of a condition the company was, they only cared about themselves and that their time in the spotlight was guaranteed. And because of that, so many people turned over to raw, where Stone Cold was having his beer bashes, where The Rock was making his entertainment catchphrases and where Mick Foley puts butts in the seats becoming WWE champion. (Fuck you Schiavone)
  5. (inb4 you're a WWE shill) This is something i wanted to talk about for awhile, ever since it came to Germany, after 2 years of waiting. The WWE Network, that ever since it's release, has gathered some mixed reactions. Is it good? Does it suck? Do i care? Let's look at it. First of all, the first thing you notice once you get on the first time, is being greeted by a livestream channel, kinda like a WWE channel if you want. They mostly show the newest content on the network, or the newest episodes of Main Event, Superstars and most importantly, NXT. It's a nice little feature to watch things life like NXT, but the real heart and soul of the Network, lies in its video on demand service. First of all there is the PPV folder, where you got all the WWE PPVs available, from the current Royal Rumble, all the way to the first Wrestlemania. Even very unknown once like This tuesday in Texas or Capital Carnage (which you only get in Europe) and even controversial once like Over the Edge 99. Not just that, you also get all the old WCW and ECW PPVs. So if you want, you can relive the excitement of WCW Starcade 97 one more time, or the Extreme Awesomeness of ECW Heatwave 98. If you go to the Shows folder, there is a in ring section. In it you'll find Raw and Smackdown replays. You find all the current shows and even the older shows. You can even watch the first Raw from 1993. So if you want, you can go through the history of Raw and Smackdown, even if it's not complete yet. You also find NXT, Superstars and main event shows there. Then we got the original folder. It's filled to the brim with original shows, documentaries and other stuff. Some of the content is certainly hit and miss. I for one can't stand Total Divas, because it reminds me too much of one of those Reality TV shows i saw back on MTV. I rather look up the documentaries, like "Breaking the code: Chris Jericho" or "CM Punk: Best in the World" Originals are hit or miss, but there is certainly something in there you enjoy. Last but not least, there is the Vault Folder. You find various shows, from various promotions in there, especially old shows from the territory era, like WCCW, JCP and Mid-South Wrestling. But you can also find the old WCW Monday Nitro shows on there. 99 and 2000 are still missing, but the best time is already covered there. You can also find the old WWF Saturday nights main event shows (which i watch right now) and even the old WWF MSG and Boston Garden shows from the 70s and 80s. For Wrestling like me, it's a dream come true. The question is, is it worth 9.99? Well, it depends what kinda guy you are and what you want from the Network. For me, absolutely. For the last 3 weeks, i had a blast watching all the old stuff from my childhood and also watch things i haven't seen yet. But also being to watch them in the best quality is just wonderful. I admit, that the current product has indeed it's problems, but i can't just say no, to this great offer. What do you think? Did you get the Network? Are you not interested?
  6. Dallas Page (born Page Joseph Falkenberg; April 5, 1956), better known by his ring name Diamond Dallas Page, is an American retired professional wrestler, fitness instructor and actor, signed to WWE in a Legends contract. In the course of his wrestling career, which spanned two decades, Page has wrestled for mainstream wrestling promotions World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). Page first broke into the wrestling business in 1988, as a manager in the American Wrestling Association, where he worked for nine months before signing with WCW in 1991. There, he continued as a manager until late 1991, when he became a wrestler. Over a decade in WCW, Page became a three-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, two-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, four-time WCW World Tag Team Champion and one-time WCW World Television Champion. He is the fourth WCW Triple Crown Champion. After WCW was sold in 2001, Page signed with the WWF, where he became a one-time WWF European Champion and one-time WWF World Tag Team Champion. Due to a series of injuries, he allowed his contract with the company to expire in 2002. He worked for TNA from 2004 to 2005. Page is now an actor in small-budget films, as well as a fitness guru and motivational speaker.
