He was a really cool guy!

I was discussing how I had already met his nephews Harry and Teddy, and how I had actually trained with Harry as well.

Yeah, I know.

600+ they reckon!

 

We got there about 2 hours early, and we were still probably around the 100 mark in the queue!

 

It started a bit late as it was sposed to run from 6pm til 7pm, but started around 6:20 instead.

We were gonna hang around til afterwards, to see if we could catch him leaving, but we gave up after 8pm as there were still probably 300 people in line, if not more!

That's awseome Cap! I am also a huge wrestling geek. I never met Bret but got to have lunch with Owen before he passed away. We were in a Del Taco in San Diego and in he walks. We tell him lunch is on us if he sits with us. It was me and about 4 friends. He was game and we gave him a ride back to the arena about 5 blocks away. It was a Raw taping and he got pummeled that night but it was a very cool day.

 

Side note to Jacob. TNA had the chance to be the best but needs to quit signing unwanted WWE talent. There is a reason why the WWE got rid of these guys. I do have to admit it's nice to see promotions that aren't owned by McMahon. Ring of Honor is coming along too. I could go on and on when it comes to this subject.

 

Whatever happened to that old wrestling trivia thread?

 

I will just finish with Viva Los Rudos!

Nice Cap't! That's great!

 

I'd love to meet Bret again and get my copy of Hitman signed. I met Bret about 14 years ago. He did an autograph signing around here and I got those old WWF trading cards signed. (Huge line back then too. It was a 2 hour signing and, if he stayed to get everyone in, I'm imagining 3 or more hours.)

 

Bret is one of my all-time favorites. It was so sad the way everything ended for him. I hope he can completely let things go and enjoy the rest of his life. It seems, slowly but surely, maybe that's happening.

I whole heartedly agree on this.

TNA had so much promise years ago, but these days is WWE lite, rehashing old WWE and WCW storylines, but not as well.

 

That said, their live shows, and WWE for that matter, are awesome!

Wish the same could be said for their TV output.

 

Theres also a reason a guy like Christian has been willing to go back to being a mid carder in WWE, when he was a main eventer in TNA.

Very cool Captain, would enjoy meeting Brett, the Hart Foundation was a favorite of mine back in the day.

 

 

Can't say that I have followed wrestling that much over the past 10 years, but 20+ years ago I was nutty for it! Only met one wrestler, even got his autograph, unfortunately it is mia...does anyone here remember Dutch Savage? Mabe this will remember ya: "Heart Punch".

TNA is awesome. i think with tazz on board now & with the word going round that tommy dreamer will end up there once his contract is up with wwe,

TNA will have better t.v.

Tazz is bloody awful, and am glad to see the back of him from WWE.

As for the Dreamer, Sandman and Styles rumours, I dunno what newsboard you are reading, but its totally different to every other newboard out there.

 

The big rumours around Dreamer are that he will re-sign with WWE as GM of ECW.

Sandman has recently announced his retirement (fact, not rumour).

Styles has a high paying job with WWE.com, so he aint goin anywhere in a hurry.

I read somewhere recently that he is doing some signing sessions in the USA, but not sure where or how many.

Worth keeping an eye out as you might find him doing something local to you!

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
