Didn't see a thread started but us "marks" enjoy discussing what is going on in the world of wrestling so I figured we could have a place to talk about that here

Any thoughts on whats shaping up for a good Wrestlemania season? Do you prefer raw or smackdown? Fast lane is this Sunday, goes Owens retain? Who are your favorites and what rumors Do you hear?

My +80 year old, half-blind (macular degen) father prefers I think: Smackdown, he sits 4 inches from TV and watches from the corner of his eyes! Everything else is radio to him! On high volume too! ;-)

My wife's grandmother who died in late 1980s liked wrestling too. She was off the boat from Italy... Would roll down her socks and drink Genesee (Gen-Ah-ZEE... Jaahnny (Johnny) Get me another Gen-Ah-ZEE!) while watching pro-wrestling.

Hope that helps! ;-)

I don't watch every week but keep an eye on it. I was a huge fan up until about 2007.

 

I mostly watch for Luke Harper since he's from Rochester and saw him on the local indy scene for years. I think a three way between him/Bray/Orton at Mania would be cool. 

 

I'm glad guys like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe are finally in the company. They wasted too many years in TNA. 

 

I get a big kick out of Enzo Amore. He's great on the mic.  

 

I'm glad Angle is getting inducted into the HOF. He was the best performer in WWE around 99-2000, IMO.

I'm from Rochester as well so am a big Harper fan, he is so agile for a big guy. I watched the attitude era and took a hiatus for awhile and came back a few years ago. Angle was a favorite of mine back and I heard he is supposed to have a bigger role after Wrestlemania perhaps a GM or something

I never got to watch TNA (hard to find when it is on and what channel) but I like what I see from Samoa Joe and Styles esp. it's crazy to think that they were a big feud in TNA and now WWE is making a lot more money off of them

WWF


What does the World Wildlife Foundation have to do with wrestling?? ; -)

I'm not an avid follower like I was in my teens and twenties, but I do like the Deliverance vibe of the family that you take your screen name from.

Here's a pic from a few years ago of my girlfriend and I dressed as the Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth for Halloween. We won top prize at the party we were at.

Oh, Yeahhhhh!

I didn't necessarily care for the match, but I do wonder if it is a work. The big show did bust his ass to lose weight and now he may not have a match at mania so I am sure he is kinda pissed.
