I started watching back in 92/93 time frame when El Matador , the Rockers, Hi Energy etc were bringing the quality, hi-flying wrestling entertainment. Without accesss to the internet, I never figured out why he disappeared.

This week going thru the early CRZ recaps, I notice that he actually was brought back several times and kept getting thrown out. CRZ addresing the smarks of the day presumed that I as the reader know the backstory. I don't. What was the story?

15 years and a lifetime latter, coming back after he was long forgotten and on the brink of suicide when he got a chance at wrestling redemeption, he still blew it!

Surely one of the biggest tragedies that has not ended in a premature death right now in wrestling?

Jannetty is wrestling Doug Williams on a 1PW show sometime soon, I'm tempted to go just to see the legendary Rocker do his thing.

Marty was always as talented as Shawn ever was, but he let outside events basically sabotage his career. Every time you THINK he's gotten past all that, something comes up to bite him in the ass.

His match against Angle on Smackdown a couple of years ago was really really good, so you know he can still go. Growing up, he was always my favorite Rocker.
