When Kane kicked out of the Showstoppa last night, J.R. made the point that he's never seen anyone kick out of it before. It got me thinking, and ya know what, one other man has. Who you ask. Well, I'll tell ya.......
That's right, Kane and X-Pac are the only two men to ever kick out pof the Showstoppa. In fact, they were teaming at the time X-Pac did it. Of course, when he did it, Show was only covering him with one foot so it barely counts anyway, but who the hell cares?
No, I really didn't have a point to this thread, just thought I'd point that out.
Well, that was easy. I know Goldberg got his win back on Nash. Given Goldberg's usual match standard, I'm sure he kicked out of the Jacknife.
Meanwhile, I think he only fought Booker once, and even though about 13 people interfered and attacked Goldberg, he managed to shrug them off, only to get hit by the Bookend and pinned. Goldy, the consummate professional, laid down for the three count before forcefully kicking out, and popping up like it was nothing. Way to put your opponent over.
Enough ranting. Can ya tell I'm glad Goldberg's sitting on his worthless ass at home, far away from my TV?
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
Yes, yes. I am replacing Billy Gunn with Goldberg on my Wrath of Khan list. His last couple of comments have really pissed me off. But I'm afraid no matter what he is coming to a WWF ring soon as his money train stops. Don't believe me? Well, Jesse Ventura sucessfully sued Vince for 800 Grand. You would think Vince would never go back into buisness with him. Of course I'm sure he wouldn't if he wasn't Governor. Same deal with "Handshake and Honor" Kevie and Co. Who would have thought Vince would bury the hatchet like that.
The fact is money talk. If Vince thinks he can get half a point of a rating spike out of you. Then you have a future in the WWF. And Goldie can provide that. I'm not saying I wouldn't mark out, if he suddenly spears someone during a promo (although to many people in the WWF have claims to the spear now) He makes me sick, because the buisness gaved him so much and he acts like Wrestling is nothing to him. He has these football delusions, like he was destined to MVP the superbowl. If it wasn't for wrestling he would most likely still be bouncing in Atlanta and giving out handjobs for crack. (I made up that last part)
I'm still not 100% conviced Vincent K Mcmahon is totally forgiving. He will make me a believer, if he inducts Bruno in the hall of fame (even though he said he doesn't want to be there) and I see Jeff Jarret stroke someone on Raw.
"Jesus Christ, Wakka! That looks like it really fucking hurts!"
Of course, they didn't call it the Showstoppa back then. But that's getting technical, in my view. LOL!
Uh, they don't call it the Showstoppa now. Maybe that's on his WWF.com bio or something, but when have you ever heard the announcers refer to it as anything but the Chokeslam?
They use to call it the Showstoppa back when he first got there so that's good enough for me. Just calling it the Chokeslam is kinda boring. I mean, anyone (around 7' tall), can do a chokeslam, but only the Big Show can do a Showstoppa. As far Goldberg goes, he uh...doesn't count because....uhh...it didn't happen in the WWF so no one remembers it....or something...
The fellow receiving the Tiger Driver '91-ish Pedigree is none other than the beloved OMEGA alumnus Cham Pain. I'm pretty sure anyway, since that clip's referred to as the Cham Pain-igree in certain circles. If you watch the clip, HHH just kinda stares after the move. I remember hearing comments from Cham that HHH was terrified he broke his neck.
Man, Hunter used to be skinny back then. Compared to now, anyway.
"Goldberg can't get the Jackhammer the first time, goes for a second time, but again it fails and Page hits the Diamond Cutter!!! However, he's down and doesn't follow up right away. Finally a cover, and Goldberg kicks out!"
I don't think that was ever really in question. We used to call them "Pay-per-views" in the ancient tounge. The problem is that 3 hours of wrestling in a row every week (along with however much else you watch)
