My attention was recently drawn to a very old thread in which Travis made the following comparison:

"actually the guy who turns heel on the fellowship looked like [Triple H]"

WTF! I know that this is a wrestle-centric board, but this has to be some sort of sacrilege. The Lord of the Rings should not be discussed in wrestling terms.

Are the Hobbits merely cruiserweights? Was Arwen a valet? Is Gollum a tweener? Did Tolkien book Frodo (a second-generation superstar) to hold the title until the Mt. Doom PPV (where the title was vacated after Frodo juiced the hard way)?

That's just wrong.

(Besides, the major heel turn in the triolgy was Saruman- he was the leader of the most powerful face stable in Middle-earth before he teamed with Sauron in his quest for the gold)

The sad thing is, I think you guys just summed up everything that happens in the books right there...and it all made perfect sense to me.

Now I feel all dirty.

Don't forget that it was the "Powers That Be" that were really behind the face stable, but we don't get the payoff to that storyline in the trilogy. You have to buy the Silmarillion for that info!

Also, are orcs jobbers or what? Now, the Uruk-hai...THEY were more like Euro contenders.

Uruk-Hai were Jobbers to the Stars. You knew they could go with the top names, but there was no way they actually deserved to win.

Now what's up with the Glorfindel angle? He does a run-in and saves everyone from the Nazgul then just completely drops out of the storylines. Backstage problems maybe?

Must be. In the movie, Arwen does the run-in, while in the underrated cartoon version, Legolas does the run-in.

You know, when I saw the name of this thread, I thought the hyper-sensitive got their way and they were going to change the name of "The Two Towers"...

In the Silmarillion, Glorfindel was a badass elven warrior of Gondolin who singlehandedly took out a Balrog. In the published Silmarillion account (which was unfinished and therefore not completely in tune with LOTR) Glorfindel died during this battle. BTW, he was defending, among others, Elrond's grandparents.

And was Frodo's flipping out at Mount Doom the ultimate teased heel turn or what?

I dunno... I thought that he looked a lot like HHH during his death scene. I'm glad I'm not the only one!
