With the upcoming Royal Rumble today, I thought it would be nice to have a thread where us wrestling fans can come and talk about any and everything we wish wrestling related. Indy, WWE, or TNA.
--
I'm buying the Rumble tonight (should be good). I'm a bit underwhelmed so far by this years Hall of Fame selection. Highly annoyed that Macho Man has yet to be inducted. The man is dead, let it go and induct him. How can they not have inducted Arn yet either. :mad:

GAME ON!

I think you will see Bruno before Randy Savage inducted.
And we all know that's not going to happen.

Yeah. Bruno is just being.. stupid >.> They were actually going to induct Warrior (another eye roll situation), but he said he would only do it if Vince came out and apologized for the 'hatchet' job they did with the Warrior DVD.
--
Tbh though, I thought they would do Savage after they did their DVD of him. I mean, seriously, if Brett Hart can get over it, then every other single wrestler in history can squash whatever is they have against Vince.

He hates Vince. I think he had misgivings about what Vince did after he took over from Vince senior.

Vince nationalized wrestling and was a force in heralding the end of the territory days, something alot of the old guard didn't like

This, from his wiki page, pretty much sums it up. "In his retirement, Sammartino has publicly criticized the direction professional wrestling has taken, making reference to lurid storylines, over-the-top theatrics, and drug and steroid abuse. In particular he has been critical of Vince McMahon, saying that McMahon has been detrimental to his father's creation." :/

Yes, but there are also many things Vince got right. He has taken it to heights his father could only dream about. Im not a fan of everything Vince has done, or still does, by far. But I didn't see anyone else making that push.

His creation of Wrestlemania was one of the most genius things he ever did

I'm not a WWE fanboy, I watched NWA along with wwe when cutting my teeth and I gave Tna a shot, but can't stand their production, which next to wwe, just feels b rate

As a side note, what are some of peoples favorite matches? For me, a few are
--
WM 6 - Warrior/Hogan - The buildup to that match was absolutely flawless. I remember they never touched each other until the actual match. They would even run in and save each other leading up to it in other matches. I also remembers the match that caused it, where Warrior/Hogan tagged, and Warrior accidentally clotheslined Hogan. :lol:
--
Also the scaffold match between the Road Warriors and Midnight express - That thing was as creaky as a wooden boat rotting in the sea for 20 years. :eek2: And then Cornett getting thrown off the top
--
Savage/Steamboat - WM3 (I think?)
--
The Flair/Steamboat matches were epic also.
--
Guilty Pleasure: Hogan/Rock WM 18. The match itself was, meh, but holy crap that crowd made it mega spectacular. I actually fealt 10 again. :lol:

Does anyone else notice the audio is slightly out of sync for the RR?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Welp overall not bad. One of the better rumbles in awhile, aside from the finish. I don't relish a Cena/Rock II @ WM, tho they could end up having him drop it in the chamber I guess. We'll see.

Question of the Day: Whom do you think will be Takers opponent this year, who do you think it should be/would prefer it to be, and what do you think would be a good angle to run with it.
--
Sadly, I think it will be extremely hard to top the past 4 years for Taker at Mania with Michaels and HHH. Last years match was simply epic.
--
Hard to imagine that Taker supposedley wants to make it to WM 30, then retire. Not sure if his body will let him, plus, I would figure 20-0 as a record would be better than 30 WM's but 22-0, just an odd number. But I like nice clean numbers. :D

Yesterday I read that Taker was not interested in performing this year. WWE doesn't think he is in shape for it. Not even to go one match a year!

It wouldn't surprise me with Taker. I honestly thought he would end it at 20-0. It seemed fitting to do so. The last time he appeared on the 1000th episode of Raw with Kane, he looked out of shape.
--
He has nothing left to prove, as it were. He's the best big man, ever, in the history of the buisness imo. He was/still is considered a locker room leader. Never once have I heard of any backstage drama with him. A true professional.
