I was kind of curious about that sort of thing myself, back when Titanic was in theaters. I had friends who literally watched that movie 15 times before it even came out on video.
I was like, "You know something brother? I hate to spoil the surprise, but the damn boat sinks!"
But anyway, if I can be serious for a minute. Movies and wrestling are hardly the same thing, you know what I mean? I mean, I watched O having a fairly good idea how it was going to turn out-- hell, even pretty much knowing the entire bloody plot ahead of time. Did that stop me from enjoying it? No...
But one shouldn't be able to call the outcome of a wrestling match with 100% certainty before the match even starts. For example, one of the great things about the Benoit-Jericho rivalry was that either man could beat the other at any given time. I don't know if this is true or not, but I got the perception that their feud was almost entirely 50/50. Squashing everybody in one's path doesn't make for good drama, you know? And it hurts the careers of the guys he's squashing.
“You see, this business is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who thought their ass would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don't.”
Ken Patera was on KFAN this morning for a good 40 minutes sharing stories from back in the day. Thought I'd share their podcast cuz it is good listening. http://www.kfan.com/player/?station=KFXN-FM&program_name=podcast&program_id=KFAN_PowerTrip.
