I am shocked and appalled.

I enjoy reading your reactions to these old shows, but if it takes you four to five days to finish one event you're gonna be here for a long time.

A long time.

Especially when we bump up to twelve shows a year.

I've seen pictures of Moolah when she was younger and I'm pretty sure she's always looked like she was 56 years old.

Herc' talks about his battles with Samson and Atlas and dear god, this dude is meant to be the actual mythological Hercules. I just don't have the suspension of disbelief to deal with this.

Ah yes, my favorite part of the Bible was when Samson fought Hercules.

I'm very curious to see if the love his run received is due to in-ring ability or if its just a case of a great gimmick combined with strong booking.

The latter. It's the latter.

If you really deconstruct Hogan's BIG WWF run, he is presented as a Face, but his entire arsenal of offense (except for Big Boot Leg Drop) is all heel work. If I remember correctly, he was initially trained as a heel, but never modified his moveset as a face. Back rakes, eye rakes, using weapons, etc.

I've never understood the psychology of the back rake. I know a lot of 80's and earlier wrestling moves look laughable by today's standards, but how is giving someone a pleasant back scratch supposed to be a dastardly heel tactic?

I can't wait for Rarity to turn around on the Mountie like she eventually does with most of the gimmicks she hates.

Did anyone like Jamison? Ever?

I'm sure Vince thought he was hilarious.
