    I’m surprised Jim Neidhart lasted as long as he did tbh. Having read nearly every wrestling autobiography there is seems he was into heavy alcohol, steroids and cocaine from his late teens. That’s a long hard living life of abuse. He’s looked bloated and in bad shape for the last 10-15yrs.
    Seemed a really bad turnout for his funeral aswell the other day not many ex wrestlers there at all considering he was quite a big name. :eek:

    Probably because loads of them are also dead now.

    There was no way that a bloke that acted the way he did wasn't on the white stuff... Still he was a big character and an adult so these things were his own choices.

    I think every wrestler from the golden age of mid 80’s to the early 90’s was on the white stuff :D even Vince joined in.

    hope to see Neville turn up at All In and throw all this idiocy back in WWE's faces, now he's free of them. can't believe how stupid they've been, letting him waste his time then slip out their grasp. haven't even given the usual "wish you luck in future endeavours" announcement either, FFS.

    The undertaker is just not good anymore the whole dead man act is stale, he does just need to actually bloody retire imo, he imo is out staying his welcome.

    Asked for his release, didn't get it. Spent a while in the naughty corner.

    He criticised Hogan years ago for wrestling when hogan was in his late 40's. Calloway is now 53 and still trying to wrestle. As usual its one of those things where he was still in his prime criticising someone close to the end of his career, but amazingly doesn't have an issue doing it himself. The cheer of the crowd is too hard to get away from.

    Wrestlemania 33 he lost, left his iconic gear in the ring and departed, that was 100% where it should have stopped a great Wrestlemania moment, (same way Flair should have gone out at Mania 24 not in front of 2 men and a dog in TNA)

    Sadly he couldn't let go and is going out with a whimper wrestling some random pointless matches for big bucks. They won't be able to recreate that Mania 33 moment when he does actually go now as people won't 100% buy into him really retiring.

    He should have retired undefeated at Mania. Vince made the thick headed decision to have him lose to the part time 3 move guy thats getting an ever expanding gut. Now that guys gone, Vince's pet project Roman is as popular as the bubonic plague, and after several years of pushing Reigns Vince still can't accept the crowd aren't having him.

    Maybe he can shuffle off to the xfl and let people slightly more in touch give someone else a push and see how things go. It amazes me Vince is this stubborn and all their bluster about "listening to the fans" is just crap, the fans have spoken (years ago) reigns isn't "it", move on, end of story.

    It makes it even more annoying when he turns the second biggest organic babyface of the decade (or biggest if you're going by mass) into a bad guy just to try and force people to cheer for Roman due to having no other option >.>

    Reigns is Cena MK2 , Vince's little personal project so crowd response will be ignored like it had been for Cena over the last decade.

    The key difference is Cena was a huge crowd favourite before Vince decided to get behind him and make him the new Hogan (as opposed to the new Stone Cold he was tuning into). Reigns never really had crowd support so Vince strapping a rocket to him has more made him Lex Luger MK2.

    The annoying thing with Reign is he's actually very good but the reactions are focused on too much. Should have turned him heel and gave him a proper run at it, I bet a year / 18 months in he would naturally be turned by the crowd.

    Ric Flair married again for the 5th time. I'm guessing this will be more alimony payment when it inevitably ends in divorce. Even his daughter Ashley (Charlotte) has been married and divorced once so sticking true to family tradition.

    Video of the cell being constructed, red this time. Doesn't look as tall as the one Shane got launched off.

    About time someone did that, though given the stories about Orton as of late i'm shocked he didn't do it with his wang. :p
