I can at least feel some sympathy and sadness when you see a former great who deals with the pain of his playing days by guzzling gallons of booze a week. Or all these recent hockey player deaths due to depression, probably caused by repeated hits to the head.
Most of us were in elementary or middle school at the time. I know I was unaware that these guys were hopped up on painkillers/amphetamines/booze, and I'm sure many other fans of my age (the most predominant segment of viewers) were in the dark too. No one is ignoring that he has a massive problem, but we just didn't know until we matured.

I think I am just a few years older than you, I mean I thought everyone knew they were on roids, but yeah I guess the other stuff was unknown at that age.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, MegaElite Crapsblog, and Forum Discussion

the reason so many wrestlers have substance abuse problems is because it is insanely hard on the body. they have very few days off and are essentially expected to wrestle injured. ken shamrock, who was a pro mma fighter and a wrestler in wwf said that wrestling was far tougher.

burning hammer tho



first one is just ridic. nobody does head dropping like all japan.

edit: on wrestlemania 2000 and no mercy on n64 all my created characters would have a ganso bomb as their front special and a burning hammer as their back special. i had never seen all japan at the time but i knew those moves were ****ing nuts. it was funny how lame the wwf finishers were compared the ones they left in from the all japan version of the game.

No Mercy was so awesome. Never played another wrestling game that got the psychology of wrestling so right.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, MegaElite Crapsblog, and Forum Discussion

I'm trying to sell something on craigslist and am a total newb. should i be suspicious about this?

Quote:
Thanks for the prompt response.. I am ready to buy it now for birthday
gift for brother in-law and i am at sea at the moment as i am a marine
but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email
regarding it. I really want it to be a surprise for my brother in-law
so i wont let him know anything about it until it gets delivered to
him, i am sure he will be more than happy with it. I insisted on
paypal because i don't have access to my bank account online as i
don't have internet banking, but i can pay from my paypal account, as
i have my bank a/c attached to it, i will need you to give me your
paypal email address and the price so i can make the payments asap for
it and pls if you don't have paypal account yet, it is very easy to
set up, go to www.paypal.com and get it set up, after you have set it
up i will only need the e-mail address you use for registration with
paypal so as to put the money through. I have a pick up agent that
will come and pick it up after i have made the payments... Thanks

Career mode was horrible. Too many handicap matches where you basically had to scam the game to win. I just liked making CAWs and putting on good matches. It was a pretty easy game if you just went all out and abused the taunt function and would win in 2 minutes- but if you actually paced it like you were working a match- it could be challenging and really fun.
