I'm not too much of a wrestling fan but I thought I should ask you, who's favortite wrestler ever?
Well, a very weird/funny news about pro wrestling. My country banned Pro Wrestling broadcast on TV. There was a channel airing it and the show was quite popular with the kids and teenagers. Unfortunately, several kids somehow tried to do the moves on their friends, resulting several cases of broken arms and legs.
Parents all over the country went into a frenzy and asked the broadcasting committee to stop pro wrestling on TV. They comply and no more WWE, ECW, etc. They even ban the dvd and video games.
What i dont get is, how come the show got the blame. What about the parents' duty to supervise what their children watch on tv. And how on earth did they allow their children to get their hand on wrestling dvds and games if they dont want their children copying what they saw.
I guess those kids didnt pay attention to the "Dont Try This At Home" warning.
My favorite wrestler ever has to got to be the guy in my sig Shawn Michaels. He was the reason I became interested in wrestling, I remember the first match I saw of him was at Wrestlemania 10 in a Ladder Match. The match recieved a 5 star which is rare. Then I ended up watching another wrestlemania where he faced Bret Hart. It was also a 5 star and it was pretty emotional when he won. Then he proved to me why he is still on the greatest for his old age when he wrestled a guy named Kurt Angle and it's been the most entertaining match in the WWE since 2004.Originally Posted by kadodo
Though The Rock was entertaining, Shawn Michaels is my favorite, but the best wrestler ever has got to be Ric Flair.
I actually use to backyard wrestle a couple of times, but then I realized it wasn't worth the risk of me breaking my neck or getting hurt so I stopped.Originally Posted by ichimaru_gin_n_tonic
I agree the parents should somehow supervise their children but you know kids will somehow find a way to get what they want.Originally Posted by ichimaru_gin_n_tonic
Is it just me or hasn't Hulk Hogan been on WWE way too long. I still remember him back when I was very young.. playing him in SEGA and he is STILL in WWE till now.. although he wasn't wrestling consistently..
And my favourite childhood wrestler was The Undertaker.. I guess The Rock came later on, and he was really the people's man but I'm still a loyal fan of The Undertaker though I haven't watch WWE in years... It sure bring back memories talking about wrestling..
I remember I gave up on wrestling a couple of years ago because I could take the lame storylines of the WWE. That is until my friend showed me ring of honor, basically just pure wrestling and I love it. Currently I'm watching a DVD I ordered called ROH Weekend of Champions and it's so awesome... If you guys want to check it out, they have some matches at this site http://rohvideos.com/
It's kinda funny, but my only experience with WWE is through video games. I've never really bothered to watch the actual matches on TV, mostly because I knew they were just following a script. But because of the games, I do have favorite wrestlers anyway. And Undertaker was oneOriginally Posted by Azurel
The Rock came after I stopped playing these games though, but I like his movies, heh.
Well on MTV, a new show called WSX(wrestling society X) has appeared and I'm actually really impressed, if you want to see how the old ECW was, watch it. It was pretty awesome this week or should I say Freakin Insane.
I did not know it was coming out this week, when do they give it?
By the way, I have a question. A lot of my friends lost interest in wrestling because they said that it was fake. Do you guys think that they really fake. Personaly, I don't think so.
Now that is weird, I tot the video game populatrity was because of the matches on TV I saw one of my cousin playing WWE on his ps and the graphics are now 'real' pictures instead of animation..Originally Posted by Gold Knight
Before I answer your question let me kinda of go into detail.Originally Posted by kadodo
Basically we see wrestlers on tv every week wrestling. We see the wrestlers we love win and the wrestler we hate lose or vice versa. Some wrestle for 10 minutes, some wrestle 5 minutes, some even wrestle for a whole hour, they go to the ring, wrestle their opponent and leave. Most of the wrestlers go out there and want to give the fans a entertaining match every single week. After they're done, they travel somewhere else the next day. They make this their life. Wrestling up to 400 matches or less depending on who and who is dedicated.
Now most people think getting slammed on a wrestling ring does not hurt at all. Well imagine this, hey if you want to test it go ahead, a board of plywood on top of a mattress, now getting someone to slam you on it, it indeed hurts. Now think of it this way, getting slammed on the ring up to 10-40 times. They take so many pain killers that sometimes they even get addicted to it. People think it's so easy being a wrestler, but you have to learn how to take care of your opponent, how to keep yourself from getting injured, so many things can happen and in a instance, you can actually become paralyzed. Ala Droz, who was wrestling D low Brown, who botched a powerbomb.
They're are people out there who liked to call wrestling a joke, not a sport, just because it's scripted, but these men risk their bodies on the line each and every night. It is a career that is risky. So honestly, I do not believe wrestling is fake, I think it's a real sport that deserves a lot more credit than it's given.
They should be showing WSX tonight on MTV so don't miss it. 10:30 E. 9:30 C
That's a pretty good explanation but don't you think it is sometime unfair for a wrestler to lose his match on purpose?
Well this is debatable, but like I mention before the wrestlers wrestle to entertain the match. Sure losing a match on purpose isn't fun and you might not get the same reaction as the "winner" of the match, but you have to live with it. Most of the times, there are feuds which last for months before ending. For example in Japan, a guy named Kenta Kobashi lost his first 63 matches, but was very well respected, but then again that's Japan. They're so many different types of wrestling fans that each have their own opinion.
Haven't posted here in a while here are some matches you guys may like
