For the love of all that is holy, please stop polluting all the other threads with the wrestling talk. Here's a little corner of the universe for you all to sniff triple H's jock or whatever the hell you want to do.

Wrestling sucks (worse than Curling, Yankees, or Peyton manning) and so do wrestling fans.

I'm not a wrestling fan at all anymore, but Bo, you just crossed the line. Wrestling does not suck anywhere near as much as the yankees, or even as much as manning. You take that back goddamnit!

my brother wrestled in high school (the AC Slater kind, not the fake kind on tv), and every chance i get, i bring up that all wrestling is is rolling around on mats wearing tights with other guys, probably getting ringworm while doing it. he doesn't like that much, and i am surprised he hasn't kicked my ass yet.

I love that you refer to it as "the AC Slater kind" rather than something like "the Olympic kind" like most people would have said. That really made me laugh, nice work Mags. But you're right about wrestling though. I want nothing to do with a sport that requires wearing tights and hugging other guys.

Wow a new forum.

Man wrestling is not what it used to be. Back during its heyday, IMO, which was during Bret Hart's title reign to Stone Cold's whole "what" saga, I always made time for wrestling. Now there are too many gimmicks and wrestlers disguised as terrible actors who dilute the talent and quality of the WWF(no I don't believe for one second WWE could be its new name), if there is anything considered as quality in choreographed wrestling. Nevertheless, I still miss wrestling when it was humbler, simpler, and you had bad ass characters like The Rock, Stone Cold, Bret Hart, Ric Flair, DeGeneration X to follow. They made it too complicated which was a bad move. Wrestling shouldn't be complicated. Their formula they set up during the 80's and perfected in the 90's was perfect. No need to change it.

From now on I will refer to amateur wrestling as the AC Slater kind. That really made my day. Bo is the kind of pompous asshole who would take the time to run down wrestling like that, but that's just background noise. As far as pro wrestling goes, if there's someone fun like the Rock or Hogan back in the day it can be enjoyable, just like any other TV show. However, that PAX show Real Pro Wrestling was an embarrassment.

I know a guy that was on "Real Pro Wrestling"; got knocked out in the second round. I can understand the thought process behind trying to get amateur -- oops, AC Slater -- wrestling in the mainstream, but this was a little forced. To use the cliche --> Good idea, poor execution. The concept centered around Rulon Gardner, and he was a stiff. Maybe it should just remain one of those "niche" sports that remains under the radar. At least it's a legit sport, compared to all this extreme shit that ESPN is polluting us with.

I love the "AC Slater" kind. Thats damn funny.

As for all you haters out there, step off. Back in the day, wrestling was cool. When WWF had the metallic looking logo and you had people like Hulk Hogan, the Iron Sheik, Superfly Jimmy Snuka, the British Bulldogs, the Killer Bees, the Rockers, Nickolai Volkoff, etc etc, running the show and matches were actually determined in the ring instead of there always being outside interference (which by the way is the lamest gimmick to help save the "egos" of the wrestlers).

So, if you don't want to talk about wrestling, fine. But it is clearly not even close to as bad as Manning or the Yankees.

Plus with the way they changed the rules all of the AC Slater wrestling people I know were disgusted by the show.

What if AC Slater joined the WWF?

I know they fiddled with the point system and everything, but I'm not versed enough in that to know how drastic and/or worthwhile the changes were.

Someone made the comment in another thread that Arena Football franchise names were bad, but they're gems compared to some of the RPW names --> Pennsylvania Hammer, Iowa Stalkers, Oklahoma Slam. These border on WNBA terrible.
