Never in my life was I so amped for something only to be let down. Something any guy envisions is getting into a fight like an absolute bad ass and knocking out fools left and right like a Kung-fu flick. Doing all sorts of crazy shit but definitely doing some variation of a wresting move you saw from the 90’s attitude era. The DDT is absolutely one of them. Just being dropped on your skull onto a chair or the Spanish announcers table. Something that will really leave a dent to prove that you gave your opponent at least a grade 2 concussion but instead we got this sad attempt at a DDT.
What the hell happened? Imagine tossing a basketball up in the air expecting it to bounce when it hits the floor but instead it just laid still. Like on a humanity level I’m glad Red Shirt is fine but learn a little pageantry for me one time dude. Flail around, shoot the legs up as if your spine just went into extreme impact. Instead he rubbed his head as if he bumped it against a kitchen counter. That’s not good enough. The other guy isn’t without blame either. Anyone who knows what the DDT is and sees that flat side front end of a car I guarantee you was expecting to drive his head straight through the engine block. Ultimately despite growing out of the wrestling phase that’s why I still respect the fuck out of WWE stars. You gotta be able to sell baby. Take the bumps take the hits. Electrify the crowd. When the guy put him in a head lock getting ready to shatter this guys skull I expected him to point to the crowd and chant to electrify the audience but nope. Just the worst performed DDT.
Im glad this guy enjoyed it though. My guy here was pumped to see a DDT in a real fight. He gets it.
What a wild time in Vegas. First off, all those people just walking about like this wasn’t gonna be a prized fight about to go down in typical historic Vegas fashion is crazy. People pay thousands to watch a Mayweather fight live. This was a billion times better. You don’t have the regular stare down between boxers saying the other is going to beat the shit out of the other one. Instead we got people accusing people of being a rapist and the other party claiming he was drugged and that they stripped him of everything. Pacquiao never had any of that go down at the press conference. But the fight itself, bananas. First off if you’re gonna bring in a foreign object like a guitar into the mix, you gotta swing that thing like an Ax. You can’t bring your body half closer to try to gun butt the guy with your guitar with out getting susceptible to hits. And once he made that mistake it was pretty much over for him. But you know what was the absolute knock out? It was when Eeyore mustered ever last bit of strength he had to lift him 6 inches off the ground to body slam the guy into a coma. By far some of the weakest, yet thrilling match ups I’ve ever seen in a fight. Kind of need Jim Lampley calling this fight and Larry Merchant interviewing the pajama onsies guy afterward and ask him if he did in fact rape that girl. I mean we dont even need to get into the fact that the guy is in fact wearing a Baby blue Eeyore onsies pajama suit. Thats just Vegas being Vegas.
P.s- The guitar gun butt thing, thats one thing that always frustrated the shit out of me back then watching WWF. Always a feeling of being cheapened out when Triple H would pull out the sledge hammer and half over it with his hand and just ding the guys head with it. Thats no way to use a sledge hammer. I know it’s just entertainment but I wanted him to drop the hammer on mother fuckers like he was chopping wood with it. Obviously it would be manslaughter if he did that but if you’re gonna throw a sledge hammer into the mix then you kind of have to use it that way. At least use it to pound Kurt Angle’s ankles into dust.
AutoBlog– The feud between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel not only rages on, but is getting even more heated as filming for the upcoming Fast 8 film comes to a close. Previous reports claim that Johnson, who called his fellow male actors “candy asses”, and Diesel were arguing over decisions the latter made that didn’t sit well with ‘The Rock.’ Earlier this month, anonymous sources claimed the two had met to squash their beef, putting an end to their quarreling. The latest tidbit of news, though, muddles the waters even more – the actors were likely never really fighting. According to Life & Style Magazine, the feud between Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs, and Diesel, who will reprise his role as Dominic Toretto, was a hoax. An anonymous source told the outlet that the feud between the two was a stunt to get people aroused for a WWE wrestling match and to promote the Fast 8 film. The source claims the stunt was Johnson’s idea. After all, the star first got his start in wrestling. While the report sounds like it’s coming out of left field – partly because it is – it sort of makes sense. Johnson’s movie career involves numerous films with other actors that were probably difficult to work with and the actor has never voiced any negative words towards another actor. At least not in the way he did towards Diesel. On the other hand, if the fake feud is being used to garner attention, the actors aren’t taking it far enough. Wouldn’t there be more rants aimed at one another? Something doesn’t add up and, if you ask us, we think the hatred between the two is real. The anonymous source may be trying to cover up the real conflict between the actors. Either way, a wrestling match between ‘The Rock’ and Diesel would be huge for both the film and WWE. Only time will tell if Johnson and Diesel really settle their anger in the ring, but if they do, our money’s on ‘The Rock.’
Genius. Fucking brilliant. Ask me a week ago if I thought this was a PR stunt perpetrated by the Hollywood studios and I would’ve told you by next week I wouldn’t care one bit. But things have changed. I remembered that Vince McMahon is still alive. Not that I ever thought he wasn’t alive but I forgot how much of a manipulator he is. How the man blurs the line between real life and Monday Night RAW. Can never tell if he’s Vince McMahon the Wrestler/ The Owner/ The Founder of the Kiss My Ass Club/ or just the real Vince McMahon that strolls through town. The reason being is because they’re all the same. Guy is really a villain in real life. That’s why It wouldn’t be completely out of bounds to say that this is all his doing. Frankly if I get into an argument with my friend I wouldn’t discount the idea that it was a ploy by Vince. If he has that much of a hold on my brain, a guy who hasn’t watched wrestling since the days of RVD, how much control do you think he has over The Rock who grew up in the greatest era of wrestling. Yea The Rock has appearances here and there on Wrestlemania. The guy generates a buzz like no other.
Listen, I don’t know what the plot is to Fast 8. What I do know from extensively analyzing all 8 films repeatedly is that the relationship between Hobbs and Toretto was born from a rocky start aiming to beat the shit out of one another. One is against the law and one is the law. Sure they’ve put aside differences in order to protect people from terrorist and other harmful criminals, but Just like Iron Man and Captain America, I could picture those two going at each others throat. If you were to tell me that they finished Captain America Civil War with RDJ storming off set mad at Chris Evans, I would scratch my head about it since they’ve had chemistry working with each other on the previous other marvel movies. Then if you told me Wrestlemania’s headline event was going to be Steve Rodgers verses Iron Man I would fly to what ever city to see it go down. It’s taking movies to a live action level. Not to mention The Rock calling someone out over instagram for being unprofessional is a bit unprofessional itself. Never could picture The Rock just beefing with someone in real life anyways. That is of course, if it’s one big ploy perpetrated by Vince McMahon……
Now its been awhile since I’ve watched wrestling and even longer since I’ve played any of the video games, but do you remember when you could make your own character you obviously had to give him the spear as one of his moves. The Rock did it, Goldberg, all the greats had a good spear in their repertoire. The only problem was the actual look of the spear. You could do the very basic one where the character slowly dives into the guys abdomen but that wasn’t good enough. You needed the ones like the The Rock where you flew at mach speed into the person and they folded up like a binder and brought their spine into the canvas. Well thats what we had here in this rugby match. A spear worthy of sending an opponent through those cheap ply wood table or the spanish announcers table. There was no breaking the 3 count on that one because he was probably dead. His rib cage/internal organs/mental psyche just left his body and went straight into the ground. Ruthless but such a beautiful hit.
P.s- the problem with this is when ever I make a post relating to wrestling i spend hours watching old WWF footage. I was gonna blog this at 11 am and its 2:30 pm right now and I might’ve hit the end of youtube searching for WWF videos.
P.P.S- I give the guy probs for holding onto the ball all the way through the hit. Good chance I would’ve thrown the ball and ran for my life screaming if i saw that guy accelerating towards me
