Every week for the past two years, I have used this opening space to quote a famous saying from a wrestler. Never before though, have I had a wrestler quote a famous saying from ME. And certainly never TWICE in forty-eight hours! Until now, that is…

"Bank on it!!!"
-- ThEdge, Sunday, May 1, 2005

"This interview… IS OVER!!!"
-- ThEdge, Monday, May 2, 2005

Welcome, everyone, to another EXCLUSIVE, JAM-PACKED and POORLY THOUGHT-OUT edition of Inside The Ropes. I'm Canadian Bulldog, the new promo-writer for Adam Copeland. We've got a lot to get to this week, so let's…

… oh wait, we don't have to get to this week. Hmmm… I suppose I could bust out another Retro ITR™, except I already did one of those two weeks ago.

What about one of them "Letters From A Nut" things? Oh, that's right, I already retired that. Crap!

Okay, okay, I've got it. How about I use this column to debut the most INNOVATIVE, INTERESTING and INNOVATIVE concept in sports entertainment? It's just a little concept I like to call:

THE ITR 50!!!

But first, so that everyone knows what the inaugural (AND first-ever) ITR 50 is all about, a few Frequently Asked Questions and Understandings to better explain things:


Q: What criteria did you use to compile this most prestigious ranking?
A: Thanks for the compliment!!!

Q: Are you kind of just making this shit up as you go along?

Q: Is there any scientific basis for this study, or is it more a subjective list that really anyone could do, and at that, probably much more comprehensively?
A: EVER!!!

Tremendous use of LJN wrestling figures that I currently own. Chris Lewinski should be much higher on the list. That Jack Tunney picture scares the crap out of me. I must hear more about this Weedwhackers team; they look like they're going places.

Great column as usual, btw.
