Lol fuck I can't wait for that episode

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:16 PM

The Dr D one has been pretty funny. Almost as funny as New Jack.
I was nearly in tears laughing when he slapped Stossel and Stossel said "Holy shit". That was well cut.
Never noticed that Schultz never even pulled his hand back.

BLAM!

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:17 PM

"My ears were ringing"

Yeah no shit John you complete gimp.

Damian Rey 2.0 04-29-2020 03:17 PM

Dr. D did an hour long interview with Cornette where he goes into a little detail on the Stossell incident and talks about his bounty hunting. Highly advised listen.

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:18 PM

He slapped the shit out of him.

Hahahahaha

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:20 PM

John Stossel is a scumbag man. Right to the camera "It hurt until I got paid".

At least the Belzer guy named his house after Hulk Hogan. This guy is just a douchebag.

Damian Rey 2.0 04-29-2020 03:22 PM

We all know it's staged. But to go up to the guys who are putting the work and tell them "you're fake" or "it's fake" is fucking asking for trouble in that era.

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:23 PM

I think I'd rather get choked out by Hogan than slapped twice by Dr D

drave 04-29-2020 03:24 PM

I can understand why he would be pissed about a star coming in to the first-ever Mania, given how "closed" the industry was then, and the shit guys had to do to get over.


He was an amazing heel, that is how heels should STILL work. They should be assholes everywhere, all the time.

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:25 PM

Ahahahahaha they showed the Belzer clip

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:26 PM

Oh man, nothing compares to seeing a skinny guy getting choked out by a mountain

Seanny One Ball 04-29-2020 03:26 PM

Kuwaiti jail awaits

ozzman6669 04-29-2020 03:38 PM

The funniest part about Hogan choking the other guy is how calm he was after saying if you laugh at me i will choke you out !!

ozzman6669 04-29-2020 03:42 PM

The only thing missing in this episode is that they didn't went into the steroids trial at all. Maybe they will do an episode about it in season 3 !

Bwa hahaha fuck I love Vader. Really wish they had pushed him like the monster he was. Especially after he attacked Monsoon. That guy was shitting his fucking pants.

Damian Rey 2.0 04-30-2020 03:37 AM

Watching the slap episode. Fucking Stossel is smarmy bastard. Never felt bad for him. But he's called wrestling bullshit like 5x now. Fuck that guy.

Damian Rey 2.0 04-30-2020 03:40 AM

Like this guy was actively looking to expose the business for no reason. It's not like he was saying he wanted to expose steroid use or sexual actually. His beef was it as predetermined and 3 out of every 10 bought it as real? Lmao

drave 04-30-2020 08:16 AM

And after a slap, he ran away like a bitch.


The line of "Yeah, my pain went away...... after I got paid". After he claimed to not be able to be a father to his own newborn did it for me.


"I can't be a dad because I don't have money for getting called on MY shit".

Seanny One Ball 04-30-2020 10:20 AM

The most interesting thing anyone learned from that episode is that there is an actual term for people who hold onto pain in order to attain financial compensation.

I had never heard of such a thing.

Ol Dirty Dastard 04-30-2020 10:24 AM

Yeah, I wasn't in love with that episode. But I didn't dislike it either. I find that there isn't much in the way of anything new being revealed about this stuff. I mean, it's always fun to hear from the talking heads It really depends on the narrative direction taken. The Benoit episode was my favorite but not for anything that was revealed, but more for the perspective from Daniel and Nancy's sister.

Savio 04-30-2020 12:09 PM

Everyone on this forum would stand up to Dr. D and probably whoop his ass if put in the same position.

Seanny One Ball 04-30-2020 12:23 PM

No, none of us would have said it.
Especially not to him...

Ol Dirty Dastard 04-30-2020 12:30 PM

Yeah I'd try to buddy up to Dr. D most likely in hopes that I looked tough via association.

Damian Rey 2.0 04-30-2020 01:05 PM

In no way would I sit there and tell a wrestler what he does is fake lol.

Droford 04-30-2020 02:08 PM

Wonder how he'd react to being called a sports entertainer not a professional wrestler

Seanny One Ball 04-30-2020 04:03 PM

Are you bald because you split all of your hairs?

Bad News Gertner 04-30-2020 05:24 PM

Finally watched the Schultz episode.

Lol oh Eddy Mansfield. The next truth he tells will be the first.

Kind of a meh episode. I'd rate it the weakest of the season except for the Brawl for All one.

Bad News Gertner 04-30-2020 05:28 PM

Eddy Mansfield would later run independent shows with a lot of wrestlers from that era which is hilarious. A good payday trumps principles

He did it for the boys, member?

Emperor Smeat 05-02-2020 03:03 AM

Just finished watching the Shultz episode and it was pretty decent.

:lol: at Vince and WWE sending John Stossel to a quack doctor as a way to get out of a lawsuit.

The story between Mr. T and Shultz and Hogan pulling a similar stunt to a reporter were way more interesting than the slap story itself.

drave 05-02-2020 09:18 AM

Or even the fact that Hogan choking a guy out on TV and (possibly) giving him a concussion was "okay" and everyone laughed. But 2 lil slaps is not okay...

Do you know if he offered health insurance or 401k?

Savio 05-02-2020 10:50 AM

Does eddy mansfield not even have a wikipedia page?

Seanny One Ball 05-02-2020 11:10 AM

Yeah but you have to go to the Abe Lincoln page and link through "See Also" to "List of unemancipated wrestlers"

Jordan 05-02-2020 01:32 PM

I've never gone through the UWF tapes. This is really enjoyable. I started from epsiode one and am surprised. Really fun. Col Debeers lmao smh ...

Bad News Gertner 05-02-2020 02:18 PM

Get used to every match between two name wrestlers ending in a dq.

Lol I've watched every episode.

Seanny One Ball 05-02-2020 02:35 PM

I think I saw a bunch of UWF on Amazon last year. I seem to remember a very excellent and funny Bret Hart promo.

I have no idea who he was facing.

Huhhh???

Seanny One Ball 05-02-2020 02:39 PM

It may be on Memphis actually.

There was a WWF invasion angle around 93 somewhere. Lots of amazing promos.
