It was the same old story that's been told a billion times

Nick Fucking Gage. MDK.

Seanny One Ball 05-30-2021 07:32 PM

When was the last time you saw anyone win with a leaping shoulder tackle though?

Nick Gage couldn't beat his wife with that, but WARRIOR did it for shots and giggles.

Bad News Gertner 05-30-2021 08:24 PM

When was the last time Warrior kicked out of being thrown through a pile of light tubes.

Seanny One Ball 05-31-2021 09:28 AM

How about a closet full of unsold comic books?

M-A-G 05-31-2021 09:32 PM

What little respect I had left for Jake Roberts flew out the window with him deciding not to beat the shit out of Warrior.

Bad News Gertner 05-31-2021 11:05 PM

I wonder if you could get a full interesting hour out of The Renegade. It's a sad sorry

erickman 06-01-2021 06:12 AM

wonder if they will do the jake roberts one next season

Jordan 06-01-2021 09:45 AM

I enjoyed the Foley A&E doc a lot. They really captured his giving spirit and the overview of his early days was apt and fun to revisit. He should probably get a podcast with Conrad.

That would require real journalism

Jake could hit Warrior with a truck and somehow only get hurt himself.

Don’t ever put your faith in Jake Roberts...

Jordan 06-04-2021 08:32 AM

In The Shadow of Grizzly Smith was really good. As good as a story like that can be. It's fucked up. Jake is such a tortured soul, yet we are so lucky to have had him in wrestling and now still alive and sober to tell his stories. Nobody like Jake. Sam Houston came off like a really good guy and Rockin Robin was a great storyteller too. The older brother Richard (I think) also carried a lot of pain with him from this story. How could they not, it's their lives, so fucked up. Crazy that Grizzly had such a high position in WCW with all this circling in his background. Glad they used that footage of Grizzly and Jake from Beyond The Mat, that always stuck with me.

This season of Darkside has probably been my favorite so far. Next week, Tom Billington. Man I hope they get renewed for a season 4. I don't know what stories they can tell at this point but I'm sure they are out there. Chris Adams, Chyna, Luger/Liz, Eddie Guerrero, WWE/Saudi Arabia, WWF Ring boy scandal, Scott Hall, Hogan... I mean there are a ton more stories out there. They may not be as focused as Grizzly, Korea, or have ended like Pillman, but there are plenty more to tell.

Jordan 06-04-2021 08:39 AM

And I think Grizzly had something to do with his daughters disappearance based on what was said in that episode.

erickman 06-04-2021 11:55 AM

that could have been a 2 part ep. they could do just jake the snake pt 2 next season.

Jordan 06-04-2021 12:18 PM

Yeah they should give Jake his own episode.

Jordan 06-04-2021 12:19 PM

Hero's of Wrestling PPV would probably be suitable as well. Also I think the death of WCW and ECW could be suitable.

Seanny One Ball 06-04-2021 12:47 PM

The whole Roberts/Smith family should just be completely erased from wrestling history.
Jake especially.

Don’t think for a second that he wasn’t every bit the sick fuck his old man was.
They just need to lift up more of the rug.

lol, if they even thought about touching them the show would be over.
There’s nothing dark about any of those things, they would have to go on a sister show called “The Predictable Side Of The Ring”.

Seanny One Ball 06-04-2021 02:11 PM

Watched the Grizzly episode there.

Lots of allegations from the family. None from anybody else.
The wrestling community closed ranks on this one, noticeable.

The credibility of the Smith family has never been more questionable.

Seanny One Ball 06-04-2021 02:11 PM

Free Grizzly Smith

that's the funny thing where were the old wrestlers talking about working with smith. cornett was the only one there, where was jr let's get what he has to say. i think smith fooled most of them and they don't want look bad now.

Seanny One Ball 06-04-2021 07:13 PM

I think they didn’t care and a lot more sordid shit happened than is being admitted to.
I think the Smiths are escaping a lot of blame for being scum themselves by showing their dad up as a scumbag now.

The Snake eats itself.

Ouroboros.

M-A-G 06-05-2021 03:44 AM

Interesting how the one sibling, Richard Smith, that didn't get into wrestling managed to not fuck things up for himself. Crazy, right?

Bad News Gertner 06-05-2021 09:31 AM

Dynamite Kid should be really cool next week. They really could have done a combined British Bulldogs episode and made it two hours. There's lots of stuff to cover on Davey Boy as well. Remember how fucking awful he looked at the end of his WCW run, even before his spinal infection. The last high blood pressure skin color and ridiculously bloated. Here's his last WCW match.


Bad News Gertner 06-05-2021 09:34 AM

Compare that to this picture from under a year prior. Just look at his face

He was the only one who cried about his dad dying.

Must be confusing loving a monster.

Separately from that thought. Mike Tenay is the biggest nerd announcer ever. I can't stand him or take him seriously. Especially in TNA. WCW he was okay but still a huge mark nerd, but I think he's the most overrated announcer I can think of. Nerd ass.

Bad News Gertner 06-05-2021 11:42 AM

I've been watching all those 1998 WCW Saturday Night matches with Scott Hudson and Tenay on commentary. Tenay repeats the same points about the same wrestlers every match..

Did you know that you shouldn't judge Silver King by his physique because he can fly with the best of them. Well Mike will remind you every single match.

I'm pretty indifferent towards Tenay.

Probably because a lot of them likely got with underage ring rats. Maybe not as young as Grizzley Smith liked them, but still.

True love will overcome all odds

Seanny One Ball 06-05-2021 02:18 PM

Jimmy Page kidnapped a 14 year old and kept her for two years before giving her back to her parents.
She says it was great.

xrodmuc316 06-05-2021 08:12 PM

My buddy is in the military and one of the things they had him do was be present at wrestling shows at the VFW/Armories. Jake Roberts was at one of those shows around 2005 and his pay was $100 cash, a hotel room, and $500 in cocaine. So like 80% of his booking fee was coke. Only in pro wrestling lol

Aside from this, I really wish that Alex Wright could have had maybe more of a midcard run in WCW and even in WWE.

Jordan 06-06-2021 03:16 PM

Alex Wright was awesome. That stupid Berlin gimmick really buried him. He should have gone to NJPW after WCW. WWE would have made him a fuck boy jobber.

Bad News Gertner 06-06-2021 05:06 PM

I remember he had his first PPV match at Fall Brawl against Duggan where Duggan no sold all his offense. He next faced Brad Arnstrong who hadn't been relevant in years and friggen lost lol!

Bad News Gertner 06-06-2021 05:07 PM

Alex Wright is only 2 years older than AJ Styles

Jordan 06-06-2021 06:53 PM

Man I'm sad that we have a Darkside break for the summer. I can't wait for the next half of Season 3. That and confirmation of a season 4.
