Finally, the return of a (semi) regular feature here at Stuff of Legend...as many of you know, I grew up as a huge rasslin' fan (yes, it's RASSLIN', not wrestling. WRESTLING is what they do at the Olympics). Every Saturday night was spent watching not only World Championship Wrestling on TBS, but also the wrestling marathon they would show on what I guess was an early version of UPN (I remember it was channel 69) from about 9PM to 1AM every Saturday, where we would see AWA, UWF (where I saw Ultimate Warrior and Sting make their debuts), Mid-South...all of the great old-school stuff. Then my friends, my brother, and I would go out to the trampoline and try out all of the moves we saw on TV on each other...I swear, if I was growing up in today's environment my parents would have been sued a dozen times by now.
So, occasionally, I like to bust out some old-school rasslin' stuff, most often related to my childhood nemesis/heroes, The Four Horsemen.
Check out this card they are promoting in this spot...as a kid, I would have been insane with my desire to see this show. Heck, I'd probably pay money to see it right now:
I know, right? Ron Garvin vs. Tully Blanchard? R&R Express vs. The Minnesota Wrecking Crew? Flair vs. Dusty? Gorgeous Jimmy Garvin vs. The Skinniest Man Alive, Sam Houston? Sign me up!!!
Also funny to see a young Tony Schiavone, who a lot of Dawg fans will recognize from WSB 750...he landed there after WCW was bought out by WWF a few years ago. Don't try to talk to him about rasslin' on the air though...he doesn't like that. (...ahem..)
Hey, what can I tell you? It's the offseason...gotta find something to pass the time!
