What’s the protocol for booing the groom at a wedding? Anyone know?
As for RVD, I’m really starting to question his ability to be a world champion. He can’t hold his own in a promo battle with guys like Booker T, Jericho, and even HHH. Maybe if the re-emergence of manager-types continues, they can get someone with him who can help him out, like Heyman did with Brock Lesnar.
As for best feud, I didn’t get to see enough of Raven/Dreamer to choose it (but I really respect Dreamer), so I’m going to say Booker T/Benoit for the WCW TV belt. Their best-of-7 series is something that Vince and the boys should look at for an example of how to build a feud just on workrate.
Here’s a question for discussion: is 411wrestling.com the best wrestling website out there?
Aside from being an avid Trekker, wrestling’s my other passion. Yeah, I know it’s a weird combination. On RVD being the World Champ:
You maybe should’ve worded this differently… 'cause while I think RVD will eventually get the WWE Title, I think he’s going to remain a midcarder much like Kane Chris Jericho have. Alot of people don’t remember the former’s title run and the latter’s nothing more than an established Main Event Whipping Boy sadly.
A better question would be just when they’re finally going to give the freakin’ belt to Benoit. I doubt he’ll get it at the Rumble 'cause that’ll mess up the Angle/Lesnar feud but it’d be nice to see it happen nonetheless. On Waltman/Laurer:
I’m going to be berated by the people in this thread for this but I saw a recent picture of Laurer and… uh… well… she looked nice. Pretty hot, actually.
Yes, I’m heterosexual. Best Feud:
Currently, anything involving Angle. I am a huge fanboy. In the past, I’d have to go with Flair/Steamboat and Flair/Sting. Vader/Sting is also high on my list. I’m marks for them too. Has Waltman ever not been greasy
As the 1-2-3 Kid, he always looked like he’d just stepped out of the shower so yes. Once he grew the beard though… no.
While I agree, I question your placement of Booker T in that list alongside Jericho. I’ll let the HHH comment go because you said “even HHH”.
If you’d included some of the A talent from SD! like the absent Rock, Edge, Angle, or Eddy… I could agree, but Booker? Gah… his whole ghetto schtick is horrendous. He’s really no better than Steiner. Is 411wrestling.com the best wrestling website out there?
I’m weird in that I seem to prefer the Torch to all other wrestling websites. The only reason I ever go to 411 is that a friend of mine that I post with at another message board is a columnist there. Otherwise, I’m underwhelmed.
No joke ** mouthbreather ** . I have to wonder what will happen with their first fight, will he kick her ass or will she kick his ? My money is on Chyna. Anybody wonder what their kids will look like ?
I’m not sure where to find a link to the story anymore, but Jim Ross mentioned it in the Ross Report on wwe.com a couple of weeks ago.
Some more comments: Aesiron, I don’t think Edge does that good of a promo either. My favorites are Flair, Flair, Flair (he takes the top three spots), Angle, E. Guerrero, Rock, Jericho, Booker T (when paired with Goldust), pre-WWE Raven, Shane Douglas. Dusty Rhodes, Jake Roberts and Roddy Piper are all on the All-Time Legends of Promo list.
Best Match My favorite is still Savage/Steamboat from Wrestlemania IV (?) or so.
I’d put my money on Waltman. I hear he can take care of himself (not on the level of Bad News Allen or Dynamite Kid, but respectable enough) and Laurer did lose a boxing match to Joey Buttafuco. IIRC, Waltman and Davey Boy Smith fought off the small gang that attacked Shawn Michaels in a parking lot a few years ago.
In WWE? Possibly. I don’t think he’ll ever reach his full potential there, though. His in-ring work is the strength of his value and he’ll never be as good as he could be in that area in WWE. I’d rather see him in one of the Japanese promotions.
My favorite is Magnum T.A. vs Nikita Koloff for the U.S. Championship in '86.
Manami Toyota vs Aja Kong at the Egg Dome, 1994. I’ve watched it a dozen times and I’m still amazed.
