Five Amazing Mean Gene Wrestling Interviews

Published by under Pro Wrestling,Sports,Video

Of all the announcers and interviewers in the history of pro wrestling, none is more prolific and well known than “Mean” Gene Okerlund. He is best known for his work in the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling.  He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 by Hulk Hogan.

He is currently signed to lifetime employment with WWE and works for promotional programs mostly for television shows on WWE Classics On Demand and occasionally makes special appearances and also the host of WWE Vintage Collection.

I’ll always remember Mean Gene from his WWF days and here are five classic interviews that he did back in the day….

20 Extremely Funny Wrestling Photos

Published by under Pictures,Pro Wrestling,Sports

Funny Wrestling Photos

Of all the sports in the entire world I’m 99% sure that wrestling is the sport that has the highest probability of having amazing unintentionally humorous pictures.  Think about it.  It’s two dudes (or ladies) rolling around exerting as much energy as possible to get the other guy (or gal) in a position where he’s (or she’s) completely helpless and laying underneath the other guy (or gal).

Face it.  It’s just funny.   And if you want to include pro wrestling on this (which I think you should) then you have double the fun.

See where I’m going with this?  Well if the title is any indication then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this gallery of funny wrestling photos

When Pro Wrestlers Are Taken Out of Their Natural Environments

Published by under Pictures,Pro Wrestling,Sports

Pro Wrestlers

As most of you know I was a tremendous fan of the WWF, yes “F” as a kid.  Now it’s the WWE because of wildlife and foundations and animals and stuff.   But back in the day is when I used to love wrestlers and their antics.  I mean it’s virtually the same today only now there’s twice the athleticism and 100 times the soap opera element.

And since these guys are so animated you would figure someone would be creating funny photoshops of them in different scenarios by now.  Well, up until this point I really haven’t seen any.

Luckily I’ve managed to capture a nice gallery of the old school WWF guys in “different” scenarios.

Enjoy

Japanese Neon Lamp Fighting….Exactly

Published by under Oddly Enough,Pro Wrestling

Neon Lamp Fighting

It’s not that I’d given up on the Japanese.  It’s not that I ever thought that they couldn’t top some of the ridiculous stuff that they usually do.  It’s just that I never thought they could take it to new heights in pro wrestling.

Well, shame on me for thinking that.  Here I am all content with backyard wrestling retards and their jumping on chairs and hitting themselves with barbed wire.

But oh me.  I should have known that the Japanese would come up with something called Neon Lamp Fighting.

These guys are amazing

Is Pro Wrestling Really Fake? 8 Examples That Might Make you Not Think So

Published by under Pro Wrestling

HHH

We all know that pro wrestling is scripted.  And we all know that it’s more entertainment than sport.  If we can at least agree on that then we can move forward.   The real question is whether it’s fake or not.  I’ve long thought that wrestling is fake.  But I guess it depends on what you consider fake.

Think about it.  Are these dudes really throwing each other?  Yes.  Are they really jumping off the top rope?  Yes.  Is it real blood?  Most times, yes.    And of course there are instances when wrestlers don’t even come close to hitting each other.  But when you look at the athleticism of these guys, would you get in the ring and “perform” with them?

I didn’t think so.  And if you really think this stuff is all fake, check out these eight videos.  Pretty scary stuff.

The Evolution of Hulk Hogan: A Photo Essay

Published by under Pro Wrestling

Hulk Hogan

After finally getting around to seeing The Wrestler I’ve been a little nostalgic for the days of my youth.  That was when wrestling was “real.”  And nothing was as good as the old WWF.  So what better a way to pay tribute to the old school wrestling days than to the man that changed it all, Hulk Hogan.

Of all the entertainers that have ever lived, Hogan is right up there at the top in terms of influence in a given genre.  The best way I can describe him is like the Madonna of the wrestling world.  Seriously.  The man just kept adapting and never lost popularity.

So here is my photo tribute to the evolution of Hulk Hogan

This Year’s Father’s Day Award Goes to Brian Blair and his Two Sons

Published by under Pro Wrestling

Blair

From the Miami Herald

A former Hillsborough County Commissioner spent Father’s Day in jail after authorities say he punched his two sons.

Sheriff’s officials say 52-year-old Brian Blair was charged with two felony counts of child abuse Sunday after an altercation at his family’s Tampa home.

The arrest report shows that Blair pushed his 17-year-old son in the chest during an altercation. The teen tried to walk away, but authorities say Blair grabbed him and punched him in the face with a closed fist and left a red mark and swelling.

Deputies say Blair let go of his older son and grabbed his younger son by the throat. The report shows that he punched the younger teen that left a bump on his head

And what exactly is the significance of this story?  It’s B. Brian Blair of the Killer Bees!  Oh yes it is.   Way to go buddy.

You’re a real winner.

10 Classic Video Moments of Jesse “The Body” Ventura in Pro Wrestling

Published by under Pro Wrestling

Jesse

Jesse Ventura has done it all.    If you look at this guy’s resume it’s pretty impressive.  The man began his quest to greatness in the mid 70′s while being a Navy SEAL.   When that “challenge” ended he decided to take on wrestling as a hobby.  Some hobby.  The dude became a legend in the WWF and a hell of an announcer too.

Then he had his classic moments on film including roles in Predator and Running Man.   After that?  Eh, just a little stint as a Governor.  Now?  Now the guy is just plain being himself and is as entertaining as ever.

However, nothing was more entertaining than his days in pro wrestling.

Mexico’s Pro Wrestlers Rule Way More Than Ours

Published by under Pro Wrestling

Mexican Wrestlers

I really wish that Nacho Libre had never come out.   Because in all honesty, the Mexican Wrestler is a fantastic subject of study.   A small excerpt showed me this:

In 1942, lucha libre would be forever changed when a silver-masked wrestler, known simply as El Santo (The Saint), first stepped into the ring. He made his debut in Mexico City by winning an 8-man battle royal. The public became enamored by the mystique and secrecy of Santo’s personality and he quickly became the most popular luchador in Mexico.

Basically since 1942 we’ve seen a rise in masks and insanity in the Mexican wrestling genre.  We’ve also seen an increase in men being out of shape and dressing as overweight women as part of their regimen.

These guys are nuts and way more entertaining than our WWE guys.
