Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Among all of the pre-recorded tributes from wrestlers to Benoit that night, this one stood out by a lot, as Regal was clearly taking pains not to speak kindly of Benoit the person:



Chris Jericho wrote in his book about how he kept having lingering thoughts that Benoit may have done it, but was trying to shake those off until he saw that Regal tribute, because he could tell that Regal was thinking what he was thinking.

"at a later day i'll be quite happy to sit here and tell you all the things about chris benoit that i'd like to tell you"

man what a spectacularly stupid decision to run this show. i didn't realize just how widespread the "what if he did it" mindset was

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

I remember watching that live at a friend's house. Maybe I was just shocked at the whole thing, but the Regal speech didn't seem particularly noteworthy at the time. Damn, is that haunting in retrospect though.

The news broke just as the episode was finishing. Remember coming home and seeing the news report and thinking "holy ****".

I didn't know that they ran a west coast episode. What the actual ****. The rumors started coming out before 8 PM Pacific and it was well publicized on all the national media outlets within the hour.

Nothing is better described by "haunting in retrospect" than this Arn promo about Benoit and Woman (well in advance of the tragedy).

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Slightly off-topic, but man Arn was good on the mic. He didn't need to raise his voice, or use provocative language to get his point across. That's how you cut a promo.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

On one hand, the Torrie/Dawn angle is clearly in horrible taste and has no place on a wrestling show. But part of me respects that it's at least a long cohesive story angle with a lot of twists and turns, which is the kind of thing that doesn't seem to really happen anymore.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Was completely unaware of the Torrie/Dawn Marie angle.

Thread delivers!

(How fast would Mattel pull its sponsorship if WWE did something like that now?! Would company execs literally injure themselves trying to get to the phone to end the deal?)

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

I was there live when Edge turned face by destroying the laptop.

That was on my list and seems fine here, even if it wasn't in strong consideration for me this round.

Pick coming up in a moment.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

I also had never seen that Heenan facepalm. Although he was probably doing that a lot at that time.

Love the pick of course.
