Thumbs Up

Awesome story, david! Thanks for sharing! Tonight on Raw, WWE did a 10 bell salute and then featured a cool montage of Roddy's career. I was fortunate to have been watching the WWF when he first entered the company. I vaguely remember watching Body Slam years ago, but I was always a sucker for movies that featured pro wrestling and/or pro wrestlers.

...don't get into wrestling.
In the last few years, WWE has done what they could to make wrestling safer. Utilizing a Wellness policy to monitor a person's health and drug use is one step. Also eliminating chairshots to the head, blading, and dangerous maneuvers are other examples of their efforts. You still have to be a little bit crazy to get involved with it in the first place, but that's just the nature of the industry.

Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes were in their 60's when they passed away and jammed a lot of living into those years. Hopefully the days of wrestlers passing away while still in the prime of their lives is a thing of the past.

I think the only thing left for the industry to still consider is the amount of days needed by wrestlers to be on the road. There is no off season.

That is true. Plus, McMahon isn't exactly keen on unions for the wrestlers. He refers to the WWE Superstars/Divas as "independent contractors". The people that work in the WWE offices have better insurance than the wrestlers. Usually, if a wrestler needs time off though, WWE will give it to them. But, that isn't always the case. (see Punk, CM )

There was a NPR article about wrestling becoming mainstream again. I kind of thought it was sort of still big over the course of the past 15 years? I know it was huge in the late '90s, but it kind of still has been big since.

Stewart cost Cena the US title in his match against Rollins. Taker made Lesnar tap out. Both matches had screwjob endings, but sometimes that happens in pro wrestling. Of course, those wacky internet wrestling fans got their panties in a bunch with those outcomes.

We haven't had any wrestling news in a while. Unfortunately, this latest news is a little sad. Last night, in a match against Kane in Dublin, Ireland, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, injured his ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus on his knee. He will be out for 6-9 months and miss WrestleMania 32. WWE has vacated the championship and a tournament will be held in 2 weeks at Survivor Series 2015 to crown a new champion.

Rollins won the championship by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania 31 during the Brock Lesnar/Roman Reigns WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and pinning Reigns to win the title. Lesnar walked into the match as champion.

With both Randy Orton and John Cena on hiatus, this opens up the possibility for some new blood on the championship throne.

The good news is Ronda Rousey should be on her way over soon
Especially if Cyborg makes 135

Haha, I just noticed my mom uploaded this on Halloween.



I chose that costume in such a brief moment of time that it was relevant.

Hey, the nWo Wolfpac was actually a cool faction. You can't go wrong with the Stinger. Too bad WCW drove the nWo gimmick into the ground. It was one of the many reasons WCW died.
