There was alot of tradegy in the Von Erich family..i think a couple of them committed suicide and one died fighting in Japan..Kevin i think...

In England, Big Daddy was everyone's favourite..............until he sat on an opponent's face and killed him.

I don't think he wrestled again after that.

I haven't watched the WWE in some time, but keep up with it every now and then. Since I stopped watching, ol' Vinnie Mac has apparently lost it and released some of his best talent.

Some of my favorite wrestlers:
The Undertaker (DUH!)
Triple H
HBK Shawn Michaels (retired after Wrestlemania 26 )
John Cena (don't give neg rep for this, please)
Matt & Jeff Hardy (Matt was since released; Jeff's now on TNA)
Rey Mysterio
Batista (since released; planning an MMA career)
Eddie Guerrero (may he R.I.P.)
Chris Benoit (cried when he died; this was before what he did came to light)

My Favorite Divas:
Trish Stratus (again, DUH!)
Mickie James (dunno what Vince was thinking when he released her)
Maria Kanellis (again, dunno what Vince was thinking when he released her)
Michelle McCool (now (in real life) married to The Undertaker)
Kelly Kelly (she's hot...what more can I say?)
Stacy Keibler (miss those legs...*sigh*)

Holy crap...I just realized I forgot THE wrestler! There is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for forgetting to add Hulk Hogan to my list of favorites!

Analogy:

Hulk Hogan is to wrestling like John Wayne was to movies.

I hate Hulk Hogan, his ego is one of the things that destroyed WCW. He helped make wrestling explode in the 80's, actually it was his ego that decided it was good to turn heel and be in the nWo and that got wrestling over HUGE, but he is also one of the reasons WCW fell apart, creating a huge gap in competition for the WWf/E and making wrestling so stale now. ROH is the only thing worth watching and it is pretty much only on the internet.

He is helping turn TNA into what he turned WCW into.

Of course it is, but so is any other form of theater.

He only worked in the BWF and local promotions in the UK, I had some VHS tapes of a couple of his matches from the 70s or 80s I got in a trade when I was younger. I think he died in the late 90s.

Bruno is the only one of the bunch with any integrity whatsoever. That may be the reason why he'll have nothing to do with the current "game" of wrestling.

My favorite was Ivan Putski! The Polish Hammer! Dobre! Dobre!

My favorite memory is watching a local Pittsburgh production with my Uncle John as a kid. As UJ thought it was real, I really learned a lot about how to swear correctly and profusely! Thanks guys!
