Is there anything in your life that reminds you of a character, an angle or a moment from a match. Does anyone swing in to work on a rope?

The reason I'm bringing this up is that I was doing a photo shoot at an abadoned warehouse and we got to playing with fire extinguishers. I got BLASTED in the face with one like a '99 Al Snow match. I responded by extinguishing my friend at point blank range, causing him to vomit.

I must say, NOT pleasant. It's amazing that the guys could breathe and still wrestle when they use one during a match.

I can still taste the extinguisher.

I got blasted in the face with a fire extinguisher once when one of my buddies was goofing around. I was gagging and choking and couldn't breathe. I thought I was going to die.

I agree....it was indeed totally unpleasant.

There are different kinds of fire extinguishers, you know. Some are chemical, some water, some gas... you can't just spray them all in someone's face.

I made my friend cry once by spraying a water one in his face as he poked his head round a door, but that was several years ago when we'd actually wrestle each other in classrooms after school and during breaks, so it wasn't so much parallelling a wrestling match as it was ignoring the "Don't be a bonehead. Don't be a clown." advice; sadly my life has never looked like a lingerie pillow fight.

There was this one time some guy and I were fighting in our monster trucks on top of a building, and when I got out of my truck, the other guy tossed me off the roof of the place!

Luckily, I escaped unscathed. Just like that time Stone Cold picked up my car with a tow truck and dropped it hood first on the concrete.

Maybe I watch wrestling too much, but there have been a couple of times when I've lashed out verbally at a group of friends in anger and felt like I was "turning heel".

I'm just going to say that one learns from experience that The People's Elbow is NOT as effective a finishing move as it appears to be on tv.

How often does the Rock *finish* someone with the Elbow?

Seriously, life is a like a wrestling feud in that sometimes the bad guys win even if you've done your best or worked your hardest.

Neither is a Stone Cold Stunner.

The choke that you leave yourself open for, though, that works pretty well.

You probably forgot the kick to the stomach.

People always forget the kick to the stomach...

Some how I keep relating politics to wrestling. Glass ceiling effect and tiers of government. Sadly I can relate bad things in my life to heel turns. :-) I'm pathetic...I know.

I'm all about having the big Hulk-Up in life when things seem to be at their worst. It would be nicer to Spear/Jackhammer all of life's obstacles in under 5 minutes, but it just never seems to happen.

For the last couple of years, I've been feuding with a painful wisdom tooth.

I finally decided I was going to have it taken out (at Wrestlemania).

The week before I did, the tooth became infected for a couple of days, causing me a great deal of pain, meaning that going into 'Mania, the evil heel had the upper hand.

But after a long and gruelling battle at 'Mania (with a diazipan-fuelled run-in from no less than Isaac Yankem, if I remember correctly), good finally triumphed, the tooth was successfully run out of town, and I became the new mega-over babyface champion.

A week later (the next Raw, I guess), still in a celebratory mood, I went to have my stitches removed. The dentist said that I had decisively won that particular feud, but then he showed me a new x-ray of my mouth...

In the bottom corner on the opposite side was >another< wisdom tooth, just barely poking up out of the gum.

The dentist told me that this would take about another year to fully come through before he could really take it out, leading to another 12 months of pain and suffering for yours truly.

So I had defeated the monster heel at the biggest show of the year, and become a super-over face in the process, but with no time to rest on my laurels, a new killer-feud was set up that would take me all the way through to next year's Wrestlemania.

Perhaps I have too much time on my hands...

WAY too long to string out a feud, especially in this era of brand-specific PPVs every month(and you needing to eat every day).

You need to talk to creative(i.e. a 2nd opinon) and get the feud blown off sooner, around Summerslam or so. A YEAR of having to chew on one side of your mouth? I wouldn't wish that on Coachman.

When I was in the 7th grade, a friend of mine (we called him Disco.. I think because he really liked Disco Inferno) and I would always wrestle/play fight before going home. There were two incidents where he took it too far. One time was when he put me in a Code Red (aka, arm bar) and yanked on it HARD. I tapped out but he wouldn't let go. Sadly, there was no ref there to break it up and/or DQ and reverse the decision. It hurt like hell and I pouted for the next half hour.

The other time, I didn't get hurt but I could have. We were in my math teacher's classroom, and I think we were acting out some sort of Hogan/nWo run in. He picked up a chair and, thinking he was going to swing it at me, I ducked. Well, he didn't just swing it at me, he actually threw it at me. Went crashing through a window, and my ass bolted right out the front door. It's pretty funny now, but poor Disco was scared that he was in deep shit.

Everything to me is match psychology and what works and what doesn't and why.

That, and I like to categorize people as heels and faces. For instance, at the paper I work at, I often tell columnists who get major heat from readers that they are excellent heels -- and like them to Roddy Piper.
