Prompted by an article in this months Power Slam, I have been looking into the Cauliflower Alley Club as I had no idea it even existed previously so I thought I'd share some of sites I've found for some of you old school fans out there. (The Cauliflower Alley Club is basically a fraternity of wrestlers that meet each year and have awards cermonies and a hall of fame etc., as far as I can tell anyone who is anyone in wrestling is a member. Notable members include people from Lou Thesz to Chris Benoit and it reads like a who's who of 20th/21st century wrestling).
Their bulletin board and affialiate site are both quite interesting. I, for one, can't wait to see if Hogan takes up his spot in the oWo in a couple of years . The list of "future legend" award winners is quite interesting too (this years winner was Benoit, last years was Angle), it's nice to see which guys the old school hookers have respect for, even if it wasn't that much of a surprise.
I just think it's cool that such an organisation exists and I'd give a lot more credit to a Hall of Fame that some of these guys would come up with as opposed to a Federation controlled on that would ignore wrestlers who left on bad terms.
"Nobody enjoys a good time more than I do, but this business of yours is as legitimate as a three-legged donkey...which of course is illegitimate because as we all know donkeys have four legs."
WWE is having trouble selling arenas out, so (logically) go to a place that hasn't had TV events in years, and you're going to get two sellout SUPERHOT crowds. Canadian crowds are usually better than American crowds anyway (ducks flames)
