Get it? Let's do it. Here.

I recall a story about Blackjack Mulligan being stabbed on his way to the ring.

Also, anyone remember the Missing Link?

And Sabu! There's another one I want to throw on my list.
Now there's a guy who knows how to improvise!

Yeah... I do not have/desire a Twitter account and it appears as though I need one to view that.
Perhaps we could just try our luck at conversation.

You'll notice I didn't say "casual" conversation.

Hey! Don't drag me into this shit. I don't watch that male soap opera. Just kidding yall. :mrgreen:

Seriously, I tried to get my son to make a top 5 list of his favorite wrestlers. But, he balked on me. I'll wear him down eventually.

I do know that these 3 would be on there:
1. Shawn Michaels
2. That "resect the beard" guy. Can't remember his name?
3. The Undertaker

Not sure, beyond that?

Daniel Bryan is the beard guy.

I run a forum that has a lot of wrestling talk, so I may not contribute.

Leaping Larry Shain and Dick the Bruiser. Those are the only old timers I can remember.

Why does this post remind me of a sugar and garlic sandwich?

I'm surprised you didn't answer his Help Wanted ad. You snooze, you lose. It's very lucrative. How do you think I afford this extravagant lifestyle? :mrgreen:

I was never into WWF. It just seemed too "by the book". Does that make sense?
I really liked NWA. This was a federation where fights "broke out"... "unexpectedly".

That was fun stuff.
