So I get in my car this mornin at the crack of dawn, and turn on my favorite all sports am radio station. Mike Morris , 'The Superstar', hosts the morning show. (Ex long snapper of TEH VIQWENS) He is a big wrestling fan, and has Brock on at LEAST once a month on Fridays, since he's a hometown boy and all. (he's been following his training since he signed about 3 years ago, so we've all got to listen to his updates on training and his expierences thus far. Kinda like a documentary on a up and comming wrestler, except you cant see it on TV, and its not a documentary)
SO I sip my coffee (Mocha Java) and I wait patiently for the commercials to finish, and then Mike comes on the radio, talking about the traffic. Then, I hear another voice, sounds very familiar, and I'm all, "Damn, no way".
Morris landed Lesner AND Kurt Henning for the whole show. They talked for a while about Brocks 'comming out party', and the great feedback hes getting across the board, it was pricless. Henning was very nice, and complimented him over and over again on how well he's comming along. Henning talked about what wrestling was like back before the WWF was the WWF, back when it was the WWWF, and all the travleing he did when he was starting out. I had chills all morning, it was just awesome.
They took some calls, and the first caller asked Brock:
1-How it felt to enter the ring on monday for the first time, and
2-If Kieblers legs are REALLY that long.
Brock said that the Monday cameo, although a dream come true, was very much a normal feeling thing since he had been doing dark matches for so long. (He then explained dark matches) He also said that he had first hand knowledge of how long Kieblers legs are. The second caller asked Brock where he want to go in the FED, and how he's gonna get there, and why Paul E is his manager. He said that his main goal was to wear the WWF gold. (Side note: He said that he wants the WWF Gold more than he wants the WCW gold, that might be a little insight into the split, or I could be just overly tired) He also said that Paul E was basically a mouthpiece for him, even though his in ring work speaks for himself.
They then tried to think of nicknames, even though Brock doesnt want one. The consensus was the 'Vanilla Gorilla". At this point, I had to pry myself from my car and go into work. BUt for once I was happy to have a 40 minute comute. It was SO awesome to hear them all talking though, Henning and Brock, in my car on the way to work. Needless to say, I had a great day.
"Vanilla Gorilla"?!! Dammit, that's Lex Luger's nickname, and no one can take it! Besides, Brock's forehead doesn't slope as much as Luger's.
Does this statin sell tapes of their shows? If so, I just may have to buy a copy of that'un.
There are no facts-only observational postulates in an endlessly regenerative hodgepodge of predictions. Consensus reality requires a fixed frame of reference. In a multilevel, infinite universe, there can be no fixity; thus, no absolute consensus reality. In a relativistic universe, it appears impossible to test the reliability of any expert by requiring him to agree with another expert. Both can be correct, each in his own inertial system.
For me, Bret was the acme of true wrestling spirit and skill. I grew up watching Bret, Owen, Davey Boy, Dynamite, Benoit and many others on Stampede Wrestling. At the same time, I was discovering the WWF.
