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.

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.

Wrestling legend 'Superfly' Jimmy Snuka charged with murder.

Snuka has been charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter stemming from the 1983 death of his girlfriend.

Cops say Jimmy Snuka has been lying about what REALLY happened the day his GF died for DECADES ... and his own autobiography helped convince cops he's the murderer.
TMZ Sports has obtained documents from the grand jury that indicted the former WWF superstar ... which spells out why investigators believe he killed Nancy Argentino in 1983.

Long story short ... cops say Snuka told investigators in 1983 that Nancy injured her head while the two were "fooling around" outside of their motel room in Allentown, PA when he pushed her and she fell, striking her head.

Fast forward to 2012 ... when Snuka published his autobiography, "Superfly: The Jimmy Snuka Story" in which Jimmy's story changes RADICALLY.

In the book, Snuka says Nancy slipped and fell on her own while going to the bathroom at a rest stop. He makes no mention of an altercation whatsoever.

Well, cops took notice of the extreme change in his story and reopened the case -- ultimately, determining there was enough evidence to prove Snuka laid a serious beatdown on Nancy, which directly caused her death.

Snuka was arrested today in his NJ home. He has since posted bail. Image http://www.tmz.com/2015/09/01/jimmy-snu ... er-charge/

Yeah, Snuka has always seemed dumb enough to tell a different story about his girlfriend's death and then actually have it published in a book.
