every once and a while i'll start to hate my brain for retaining absolutely needless wrestling information (read: anything related to wrestling) and this morning it was bob holly's like, two-week stint where he'd win matches by using a plate in his forearm which was never mentioned again afterward. wikipedia has nothing on the subject. this really happened, right?

Was this a rehash of Lex Luger's metal plate but with Bob Holly, or was Lex what you remembered?

Edit: I just read about Bob's real life metal plate in 2000 so maybe they did do something with that for a couple weeks.

This is a pretty dumb question, but did Paul Bearer always say "ohh yesss"? I only ask because for the life of me I do not remember him ever saying this and everything I know about the guy is from the mid 90's. A few of my friends brought it up and I do not recall him saying it at all, which means he started doing it later once I stopped watching or I'm just retarded (which I'm leaning more towards).

Regardless I will always love the man.

I think it was something he would yell at ringside during matches for a long time, like when Undertaker was in full control, but not very much during promos.

Are you sure he didn't do it much in promos? I remember it almost being his catchphrase.

Not sure at all. I was thinking that could have possibly been the case considering how underrated Bearer's acting at ringside was. He wasn't hyperactive but he was extremely emotive and into it.

I think the pauses in promos may have started because of Harley Race and his calm intensity. But his pauses meant something and weren't inserted nonsensically to disrupt flow and automatically make whatever he was saying a bit worse.

That's funny because he's a guy I'd single out as not doing that, and as the complete opposite of the WWE promo style. He finished complete sentences and left a brief pause for gravitas.

If you take a look at "that promo" everyone always cites, it's about 50/50. It is just one promo though, so I guess I'll take your word for it.

Has the WWE been to Denver since the whole Nuggets incident? I can imagine Vince being petty enough to stay away from there on purpose.

They ran a show there in July. Same arena, but it was a make-up SuperShow because they had cancelled SmackDown elsewhere. I'm not sure if they were originally scheduled to do a show at the Pepsi Center at all before that but it was probably meant to be just a RAW.

Edit: Beaten because I am slow as heck.

Ah, got 'cha, just another one of those wrestling rumors I heard a long time ago and decided to finally fact-check it.

I heard once or twice on "make stuff up" websites that he and his wife (at the time) wanted a change from the Ministry thing because 'Taker had become a bit too into occult books and whatnot in his real life. Once in a while those things turn out to be half-right but I'm not sure.

I was watching some of the Heath Slater jobber stuff on the buildup to Raw 1000 and it blows my mind the reaction that Vader got yet he wasn't brought in for a full-time gig, even just to put Cena over.

They did well with it but I still thought it was easy to see Vader can barely move. He had immense trouble getting up the ring steps. Any time he had to get back up looked very awkward too, like his knees don't work anymore whatsoever.

Dudes have always done that, from kneedrops to most of the time Hogan ever dropped the leg to John Cena today. It was never meant to be observed as an obvious thing until The Rock did it. It isn't really talked about and there's not even a made-up reason that it is supposed to make sense. Good times.

Maxwell Lord posted:

How much physical training do managers generally get, compared to wrestlers? They're not doing a lot of fighting but it's still taken as a given that you'll eventually be thrown out of the ring or bodyslammed or otherwise taking bumps.

Generally managers were always fully trained wrestlers who had more ability talking than working, whether they had become too old or they were never good at it in the first place. I'm talking about the oldschool manager role of kayfabe handling matchmaking and contracts as well as doing the talking for their clients.

I'm pretty sure the handful of people who want to come up as managers still go through the same stuff.

Two questions:

1. It's been a few months, but I was watching the Raw 20th Anniversary DVD, specifically, the show that features the 1-2-3 Kid upset against Ramon, and Jannetty coming back to beat Michaels for the IC Title. Anyways, that Raw still had ring girls, but one of them was an older, bigger woman? What was the deal with that?

2. What is Emma's gimmick? I don't watch NXT, and I have only caught a few episodes of Raw here and there recently, so I don't understand what's going on other than she's bad dancer but people love her?

1. A bad joke that they used a lot for some reason.

For Angle's in-ring debut, Fink had to say he was the only real athlete to ever grace a WWF ring (or something along those lines) so it seemed like he was supposed to annoy people. Or maybe they were just really dumb in trying to sell him.

What if it was called "randy's knock out", possessive, a maneuver he can do which is capable of knocking someone out. If that were the case would most people here be:

a. more incredulous
b. less incredulous
c. weirdly extra defensive about how they think not enough people come out and say that women can be bad wrestlers too, pretty often
