Originally posted by ekedolphinToday at work we got a brand-new trainee, named Christian.
He came into the store shortly before I was scheduled to leave. A couple of my co-workers said, “Hi, Christian.”
I, of course, sang it, as in Christian's theme. “Christiiiiian! Christiiiiian!” Complete with the Christian raising-the-arms-to-the-sky gesture. I did it just about automatically, too.
...sigh... That's pathetic.
that's about the funniest thing i've heard all day. now, i have no clue what you look like, but i can just picture somebody doing this in a room full of confused co-workers and i nearly fall over laughing.
my friend and i (whom i called *good ol' jr*) were the only real wrestling "freaks" in our grade 12 media class. we got a kick out of annoying classmates and, especially, our teacher with wrestling-related quips. "what?!" was used often, nearly after every line of a speech or lesson being taught. numerous catchphrases (including me answering my mock job interview questions with "it's true, it's true.", "what?!", "HELLO... lady." and "if i could be serious for a moment...") were also used throughout the year. not coincidentally, this class was also the only one that could hold my attention and NOT put me to sleep.
the highlights of my school year? doing a mock draft every other day for a month after the draft took place. you'd think they'd get old. but nope.

Would you have said "I think I know you?"
i loved crz's ring intro for when edge and d-lo squared off a few years ago
Edge [I think I know him] verus D-lo Brown [I think I recognize him]
You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
Yeah, well, you know you've been watching wrestling too long when your friend tells you you're being an ass and you look at him shrug and say, "I can't help it. I'm over."
An open letter to Andrew Gilkison from me: Sir, I am no longer pleased with your product and thus will not read it. I am the consumer and your product is not living up to my expectations. I could open up an Andrew Gilkison message board and cry about it, but that's a waste of my time. In the meantime, I would suggest you work on improving your product. Thank you.
Watching RAW and Smackdown doesn't cost anymore than your posts do. And so, like a good consumer, I'm tuning you out.
Actually, Christian laughed. Everyone else looked at me like I was stupid, while I just about fell over laughing.
Anyway, for other phrases I tend to use--
“It's true, it's true”, “If I can be serious for a minute”, and even “You know something, brother” have all made their way into my everyday conversation.
When I'm talking to my friends about a hot girl, “Oooooh, yeaaaah” tends to slip in there too. Complete with the Macho Man voice. Fortunately, Savage is still somewhat well-known from the old days and the Slim Jim commercials, so that's not looked at as being too strange.
Sometimes when I enter work on a busy Friday night, I actually do the honest-to-God Y2J countdown. Seriously. I count down the time in my head, and open the door, with my back facing forward and my arms in the Y2J pose. Sometimes I even sing the song to myself.
I'm not kidding.

Yeah, so when I tell people my email address or nickname for the first time, I invariably get asked, "Evil?" and I without fail reply, "Indeed!!!" My friends and I used "It's True, It's True!" for so many months my roommate has serious hate for Kurt Angle to this day. Finally, the less said of my misuse of "What?" the better. Yeah, I need help!

My friends have taken to calling me Positively Ian due to me constantly giving them pep talks and ending them with "and that's not a bad thing, it's a GOOD thing!". Yes, I am sad. Especially considering I've now developed the habit of grinning widely and turning my head ever so slightly to the side between sentences.

I have the habit of memorizing promo's after having seen them once and then at the very first opportunity springing them on my unknowing wrestling buds... and other fools who have no clue... AND THE ROCK MEANS NO CLUE as to what in the blue hell I'm talking about.
Damn! I did it again!
I even freak out my girlfriend on occasion even though she knows what to expect. I've even got her repeating "it's true" after she hears someone else saying it on tv or something. Now can u dig THAT?!
I remember my senior year in high school punking out freshmen Stone Cold style. I had a freshman class with two freshmeats and I constantly WHAT-ed them. It got so bad that I used to give them Stunners where they waited for the bus! People had to be looking at me like I was retarded, but it was fun cause they we're constantly looking around for me.
My friend outside of school is a big wrestling fan and he does the Spin-a-roonie if you ask him enough. He always ends up injuring himself doing it. He put me in an Anklelock at work once!
Half my lingo consists of Wrestling sayings.. And heh..English isn't even my native tongue!
And ofcourse when me and my friends (Acrid!!!) get together we throw out all the classics and try to up on another. And yes, what he said is true..he does recite the latest promos from his head It's damn true..
A friend of mine I used to work with a few years ago still cringes whenever he hears someone go 'oh you didnt know' simply because he knows what would come after that if I were around..
A well placed what always confuses people. And you can so piss people off by doing a Just Bring It.. move.

If you find out he's gonna get fired, you can lure him into the lunch room, turn out the lights and drench him with a bloodbath.
My old roommate who lived with my brother and I from 1996-1999, came over to hang on the Fourth of July. We watched Smackdown and he hasn't seen any WWF since WM 16 and he saw Edge and Hogan and wanted to know why Hulk was affiliated with the Brood!

I work for our local newspaper...and we do a couple of neat events for our readers each year. Most involve setting up chairs, tables, etc. So when the Promotion Director asks me to help set up the tables...I BELLOW to whoever I'm with,
"DEVON...GET THE TABLES!"
Nobody knows what in the HELL I'm talking about ("Who's DeVon?")...but it always cracks me up.
To be fair to WWE, it's not so much "WWE refuses to do so" as it is "WWE are unable to do so due to contractual obligations with international television partners". For ROH, not so much of a problem.I call shenanigans on that.
