I had finally gotten around to ordering my copy of "Hooker." What poor timing.

Here's hoping this gets mentioned on RAW tomorrow.

Then I can write a washing bill in Babylonic cuneiform,
And tell you every detail of Caractacus's uniform;
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

Just wondering, did WWF mention Gorrilla Monsoon's passing?

I think they did an opening montage/vince voiceover for him, as far as I remember.

The only thing I really no about Thesz is that Austin does a Lou Thesz Press. As far as work rate and all that go I know little to nothing about him. Didn't he wrestle back in the day when Pro Wrestling was semi shoot, adn consisted of a lot of ground holds? Also what was Lou Thesz's major contributions to wrestling?

Lou Thesz was heavily featured in the History Channel's "Body Slam! The History of Professional Wrestling" which I taped last night. I guess he could be described as one of the more popular wrestlers in the 1950s when professional wrestling made its way back into the mainstream thanks to televised events. He gained popularity through his mic work and wrestling skills. He started his pro wrestling career in his early 20s. He told stories of the old wrestlers and how the development of different personalities helped the sport grow during the t.v. era.
The show was pretty good as it followed pro wrestling from the turn of the century to the mid 1990s when it was made.

#9 Posted on of my hardcore old school wrestling friends saw that same show and hated it. "Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair combined got less time than Marc Mero!"

The HighLight Reel was fine until they tried to turn Jericho heel right in the middle of it and then it all went downhill from there. In the end, the only point I can see to this whole thing was to set up HBK/Jericho in two weeks.
