Here's a "I Watch Too Much Wrestling" moment that happened last night: The Noble/Moore match was just about to start on SD!, while they were getting ready to start the NFL game on ESPN. I'm sure some of you have seen the Countdown to Kickoff clock on ESPN, and there was a few minutes left. I haven't seen too much of Moore yet, so I decided to watch a few minutes before kickoff. I flipped over and actually said the following words OUT LOUD:
"Okay boys, I'll give you a chance to show me what you have. But, you only have about three minutes before I change back to the..."
I literally burst into hysterical laughter and pretty much missed the 3 minutes of the match. Keep in mind that I was alone in my apartment at the time. Sad... just so sad...
i think i watch WAY too much wrestling.. no matter how shitty or boring or predictable the wwe product is getting or has been, i've always looked forward to watching raw/smackdown.. and velocity, even, since it's inception. PLUS, whenever i get bored, i end up popping in a tape of wrestling, or downloading some matches on my computer. basically, if i'm at home, i'm doing something involving wrestling.
my girlfriend thinks it's funny and "cute" that i'm such a huge wrestling-dork (i relate to a lot of things in wrestling terms, too) but she also seems to have a quiet disdain for my seeming obsession with wrestling. shit, i was going to go to smackdown ALONE, just because i don't want to miss seeing a televised show in toronto. she volunteered to come with me.. so now i told her that she has to at least watch some wrestling with me before the show because i don't want her sitting there bored shitless for up to three and a half hours at the show. i don't think she's too thrilled about that.
so.. do i watch too much or devote too much time to wrestling?
My friend and I used to play miniature golf a lot (two supposedly hetero guys playing Putt-Putt on a Saturday night...Strike One). Well, if either of us scored a hole in one, out came the wrestling poses. My friend performed the Fargo Strut, while I usually stuck to the HBK pose.
Also, I spent way too much time doing the Bagwell "I'm the Stuff" strut, complete with silly, toothy grin.
Nowadays, I just stick to playing Smackdown on the PS2, and mimicking the entrances to the wrestlers when I set up 8-man battle royal matches.

There is something irrestible about copying the entrances. I used to do X-Pac's X-Factor entrance when coming into the office, the bar, and pretty much everywhere, until my girlfriend told me to "control myself." Of course, she probably had a point, but I still broke up with her.
And my friends have been throwing up the Wolfpac sign for about a year now, despite having no idea what it means.
HBK has some of the best entrance mannerisms, for my money.

They've been buying radio ad time in Green Bay...I think they had Freedom, WI's very own Garrett Lowney (Advantage Wrestling, LLC), a 2-time Olympian and 2000 bronze medalist. Naturally, RPW's put him on...uh, the California Claw team. Hoo boy.
