The Sham Kolbasz Since: 20.1.02 From: Hamden, CT Since last post: 2337 days Last activity: 1689 days # 1 Posted on 12.7.02 2336.26 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) "Cram it with walnuts, ugly!"- Mr. Homer Simpson The European Title MUST go to Smackdown and Carthage MUST be destroyed.

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. WyldeWolf1 The Man of 1,007 holds, making him 3 holds better than Chris Jericho!

You knew they could go with the top names, but there was no way they actually deserved to win. -Jag 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? "You gotta hate somebody before this is over.

tomvejada Andouille Since: 2.1.02 Since last post: 4685 days Last activity: 4685 days # 6 Posted on 14.7.02 0818.13 Must be. In the movie, Arwen does the run-in, while in the underrated cartoon version, Legolas does the run-in. "Catching Hitler was neato!" "Next stop, Hirohito!" Bart Simpson

WyldeWolf1 Boerewors Since: 20.6.02 From: Florida Since last post: 5043 days Last activity: 5043 days # 10 Posted on 15.7.02 1000.29 Originally posted by Jaguar 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? 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!
Chris McKendry takes on this subject in her article at ESPN.com Page 2......while she misses one or two items, she doesn't embarass herself and actually makes a few humorous comparisons
