    Also posted this on facebook but I was with a few early 20 something co workers at a bar. All dudes and I brought up how Million Dollar Man and Sergeant Slaughter were at the Kane County Cougars game on Thursday. They were confused, they thought I was talking about bands. One dude had heard of them because he remembers his dad telling him about wrestling's glory days in the 80's. But what's the consensus here, these kids get a pass for being born in the 90's or are they ignorant millennials that should know 80's pop culture?

    I dunno - if they weren't born until the 90s they can probably have a pass on those names.

    Awesome match. That's the double turn at the end, right? Bret was heelin' it up a little bit before that too.

    I got back into wrestling again full time

    I can confirm that heel New Day is the greatest thing I've ever seen. I can also confirm Big E is flawlessly hilarious.

    So they got a full house at Barclays center for nxt tonight. I haven't really ever watched a second of nxt but that seems pretty impressive for the farm system.

    Bayley v Sasha was probably the best woman's wrestling match I've ever seen. And I used to watch WOW.

    Lesnar squash, Dudley Boyz, Sting, Flair... It actually took an hour to get through Raw instead of the usual 20 mins.

    I taped Smackdown the other day just cause of the Dudley's. Xavier Woods with a "Save a table break a Dudley" sign was pure genius. Also when Dean Ambrose said "I'll take the ugly one" when talking about the Wyatts had me cracking up.

    An indie geek, smark professor was teaching a class on Dean Malenko, known vanilla midget.
    "Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Malenko and accept that his technical wrestling was the most highly advanced wrestling America has ever known, even greater than 'Macho Man' Randy Savage!" At this moment a brave, 6'6, 300lbs, wrestler who had squashed more than 1500 jobbers and understood the superiority of big guys and fully supported World Championship Wrestling stood and held up a RoH DVD. "How much money did this event draw, brother?!" The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied "It's not important how much money it drew, fucking gorilla, wrestling is about technical ability, not drawing money." "Wrong. It's been 30 years since Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant in front of 90,000 Hulkamaniacs at the Silver Dome, if it was not the greatest wrestling event of all time and wrestling is, as you say, about technical ability, then it should be regarded as a commercial failure by now, dude." The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of Yes! by Daniel Bryan. He stormed out of the room crying those small, vanilla midget crocodile tears.

    There is no doubt that at this point our professor, Dave Meltzer, wished he had pulled hiimself up by his bootstraps and become more than an outlaw wrestling Japanophile. He wished so much that he had some kind of money to hold on to, but he himself had written against it! The students applauded and all rolled into the WCW Power Plant that day and accepted Hulk Hogan as the greatest wrestler of all time. An eagle named "World Championship" flew into the room and perched atop the copy of "Controversy Creates Cash" and shed a tear on the hardcover. The last sentence of "Hulk Hogan's Bash at the Beach 2000 promo" was read several times, and Vince McMahon himself showed up and supplied anabolic steroids to all the wrestlers. The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of muscular dystrophy and his "stars" were disregarded for all eternity. Eat your vitamins and say your prayers, brother.

    Rosemont parking lot is my personal hell. Maybe it's gotten better in the 10 years since I was last there.
