Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?



I love it when a plan comes together

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?
No.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)
Yes, Flock 4-EVER!

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?
Yes, one Austin long sleeve shirt.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?
If I wanna see them, I wanna see them I don't care if I have to pay $100 for Raw tickets to see my favorite guys in dark matches, I would.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?
Yes, I am rather hopelessly addicted to wrestling.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?
No. Even when I knew Jericho would never get past the WCW Midcard I still watched Nitro/Thunder/Saturday Night if he was on. Hell I used to watch Worldwide just to see the West Hollywood Blondes and Frog.


Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?
I think Al Snow rules. I like Kaientai, Whipreck, and even rooted for the Brawler as a kid just cause I felt sorry for him. And Disqo? Rocks the house and you know it.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

It makes a world of difference. Just last month, the WWF RAW brand was in Phoenix. I skipped it because of the talent missing, namely from Smackdown.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

I've bought a E&C shirt, and a JOB Squad shirt.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


The only main event product I have is the "I'll Make You Tap Out" Angle shirt.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?


It does not matter where on the card a certain wrester is, as long as I get to see them.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?


Again, as long as they are on, I don't care. I'll probably honestly never stop watching completely.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

No, not really.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)


I have an APA shirt and a "Monday Night Jericho" shirt from WCW. I also have a WCW shirt from the dying days, and that was a B-Level program.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

I bought a Rock shirt once, and I still have an nWo shirt around here somewhere. I have the DX tape too, somewhere.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

It doesn't really matter to me, really. I'll go to see the show. If my favorite wrestler isn't on the card, oh well. The last show I went to (a RAW, long before the split) had my two favorite wrestlers in the WWF at the time (Raven and Jericho), one on Jakked, one in the main. I mostly go to the shows for the atmosphere. That explains why I went to Nitro/Thunder in January of last year, despite the fact that I couldn't stand the product. I had fun too.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yeah sure. Even if the main is going to suck, I usually stick around to watch it to see what they do. If I'm watching RAW and the main is Bradshaw v. Big Show, I'll still stick around for it, but my mind may wander elsewhere.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Most of my favorite wrestlers are still in the mid-card. I also reallize that this is a business and that who I believe is the best and who I really like doesn't always jive with the WWE or other fans' ideas. Some of my favorite actors are character actors who will likely never make the marquee, that doesn't mean I'm not going to try to catch a movie that they're in if I can help it.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Well...I guess if I have to think about this one, then probably not. When I was a kid though, I used to be a bit of a fan of the underdog. If some poor sap was in there against, say, Warrior, I used to cheer on the other guy until the inevitable body press (which my friends and I were huge marks for back in the day, though to save smark cred we incessantly mocked him during his promos). That's why I marked out when 1-2-3 Kid beat Razor Ramon.

    No, if I like someone I might buy merchandise no matter how high he/she is on the card.

    Yes, Tazz shirt, Hardy Boyz shirt, Jericho WCW shirt.


    Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?


    Yes, HHH, Jericho WWF, Benoit

    wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


    Being in Holland I go to a show no matter what, if possible. In general the shows are fun to be at anyways. Yes, the addition of my favorites can elevate it, but I go no matter what.


    If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?


    I watch for the whole show, and try to enjoy it all, yet pay extra attention during the appearances of 'my guys'


    If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?


    No, I do not watch for one person (or a few) alone. I enjoy the general product.


    Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?


It's easy to say yes and name someone like Snow or Lance Storm (alas, its true!), yet imo he is not really a jobber. He is a WWE superstar. Jobbers are the guys of old like mike sharp and those even lower on the card. I do not know any modern era jobbers like that.

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

Not at all...

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

I bought a Road Dogg T-shirt a few years back. Also bought the Jerichoholic T-shirt back when Y2J was a midcarder.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

Yeah, quite a few actually. I have a couple Rock shirts, a couple HHH shirts, a Taker shirt and an nWo shirt.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

I don't really even have a favorite wrestler right now so it doesn't concern me. Actually, I don't think I've ever bought tickets a house house show or PPV knowing any of the card in advance. I guess now with the roster split, I don't think I'd really turn down an opportunity to go to a Raw or Smackdown show simply because I knew wrestler X wouldn't be there.


If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Man, I'm a real diehard fan. I don't miss any of Raw or Smackdown if I can help it. Hell, even when there's a mtch I really have no interest in seeing, I still stick around and watch it.


If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Of course I'll keep watching. Despite how much people complain about the WWF right now, there's still a lot of good things going on in it. It's gonna take a lot to get me to stop watching altogether.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Yes, Crash Holly! Man, I love that little guy. Ever since he got that little push during the 24/7 thing, I've been a fan of him. I guess at the time I got into him, he wasn't really a jobber, but I've stuck by the guy. If I stopped to think about it, I bet I could come up with a few more guys, but no one else comes to mind right now...

No. I think if you are a fan of something, it doesn't have to be wrestling, having your favorite wrestler, actor, writer being part of something only makes it better not the only reason to participate. On the other hand, sometimes as a fan of a certain person you might be more inclined to go to a wrestling show or see a movie because a certain person is in it.


Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)


Does the closet shelf full of ECW merchandise count


Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?


Of course, I think if you are a true hard core wrestling fan, it might bother you that certain things suck, but you will still "mark out" over things that casual fans would do. I have an Austin and nWo T-Shirt in my collection and it doesn't bother me, as a more "informed" fan, that I own them.


Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


This is a tough question, because while seeing a certain person live is fun, sometimes there are other factors. I am a fan of Jericho, Angle, and Edge, but I didn't go to the Smackdown Crew shows in Massachusetts a few weeks ago because it wasn't worth the drive to see one good match. One the other hand I would usually drive the same distance to see ECW shows back in the day because not only were guys I enjoyed on the show, but the other matches were bound to be worth me going.


If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?


Honestly, this depends on if it's a PPV or TV. PPVs I'll watch straight through, but on TV if there is something good on, or I have a tape I've been wanting to watch, I'll pop it in and watch that instead.


If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?


No way. I'm a wrestling fan. If the Red Sox gave up on a guy like Trot Nixon, I wouldn't stop being a Red Sox fan.


Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?


I have been an Al Snow fan since he was doing the nervous breakdown gimmick in the WWE before he went to ECW.

T-shirt Questions

I've only bought one wrestling t-shirt ever and that's the classic Y2J black with silver/blue lettering. In his first few months in the Fed. I bought it because I liked Jericho but I also really liked the design of the shirt, it looked cool. If I like the guy and the design is cool I'll buy it, no matter where he is on the card.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

It actually has, if I look at the card and see bad match after bad match booked, I have skipped it already.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Raw/Smackdown I'd probably stick around, but I might flip to something else and go back and forth quickly if something brutal is on the WWE show... BUT the B-shows, if I know that someone I really like is on, I'll make sure to catch it. I'll watch Heat/Jakked at times (if I remember or not doing anything) But a few weeks ago I heard there was a Trish v. Molly match and I went out of my way to catch the show.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product

Naa, I'll probably be a lot less supportive of the company (ie buy pay per views/ go out of my way to go to house shows) but all out stop, I havent' yet... Just glad there's a place like this to vent. hehe

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Does Lance Storm count? I mean he's a jobber if I've ever seen one. I like Raven and he's been a jobber in the Fed. So I guess I like jobbers.

Kind of. But every now and then, someone surprises you.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Sure do.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Nope. I never gave up on WCW when they failed to elevate or put the US Title on Booker T when they had the opportunity. And they had MANY.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Q: Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

A: No. I like the person/character, unless they are drastically altered (see Taylor, Terry).

Q:Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent?

A: Radicals shirt, Benoit shirt. If you consider Toryumon a B level company, I have tons of their stuff.

Q: Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

A: In WWF, no, although I'm tempted by the You Suck! shirt. In NWA, Flair/Horsemen stuff. In Mexico, Shocker and Dr. Wagner. In Japan, Tiger Mask, Liger, Mutoh, Chono and Misawa.

Q: Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

A: If people I like are in unattractive matches on a PPV, I won't bother. On the indy level, I won't go to a show unless I know there is quality talent there (or people I know working).

Q: If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

A: Lately, no. For a while, I turned off the TV as soon as Flair had appeared. Now, that doesn't even keep me watching.

Q: If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

A: No, I just bitch more.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

A: Does Lance Storm count? But seriously, folks. In the NWA days, I was a mark for the Mulkeys and George Scott. I starting appreciated the jobbers as a whole when I realized jobbers were often more talented than those they were wrestling and put in to make them look good.

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

No. I buy merchandise for the wrestlers I like and if they've got multiple product available, then the decision depends on the quality of the product itself.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

First Tazz t-shirt ("The Mood Is About To Change")

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer/upper card product?

Yes, a signed Y2J "Shut The Hell Up" t-shirt. Bought at auction last year. I've had Foley and Austin shirts, but those were gifts, so they really don't count.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

It doesn't matter where they are on the card, but I enjoy a show a lot more of the people I especially like are present!

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yeah, most of the time. I'll occasionally switch away if I'm finding a match less than entertaining, but basically, once it starts, I'm there for the duration. But it's a must to catch the matches that involve my favorites.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Hell no!! I like so many people, they're all at various levels on the card right now.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?
Al Snow just thoroughly entertains the bejeezus out of me, no matter what he does. Other than that.....uh, much as it pains me to ask this question, would Raven fit into this category? Lord knows he's done his share of it since coming to WW (don't make me say it....AAUUGHH!)E.

Basically, I'm a wrestling fan and while I don't always like everything I see, it's not gonna make me throw in the towel on the product.

Q. Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

A. Nope. If I like em I dont even think about it.

Q. Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

A. No, but i would. I just never like any of the shirts.

Q. Have you ever bought a Main Eventer/upper card product?

A. Yes. I bought the purple Macho Man T-shirt, and the Hot Rod T-shirt as a kid..I also just made the Macho Man one again since i grew out of my old one.I also had the Bret Hart sunglasses. Do figures count cause Ive bought tons of those.Ohh yeah, when WCW came to town they were giving away NWO shirts with your ticket so I have that too.


Q. Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite

A. If my favorite wrestler is on the card I dont care when he's on as long as I get to see him wrestle. I will say that I went to see Nitro and Flair was wrestling Six and he came out wearing street clothes I was pissed. I felt cheated.It just didnt look right live.

Q. If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

1. Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

Not really. Of course, the only merch I bought so far was a Tatanka foam tomahawk, so... (Still have it, too. Somewhere around here...)

2. Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

As soon as I scrape up the money, I'll get a Kaientai "EVIL" shirt. Other than that, just the Tatanka tomahawk.

3. Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

Not yet, but I want the "YOU SUCK" shirt.

4. Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

No... location's more important. They don't come by CT all that often, ya know...

5. If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yeah, unless it absolutely sucks the meat missile (TM some recapper).

6. If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Nope. I'd watch that wrestler no matter where they were, not to mention support them.

7. Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Hells yeah! Iron Mike Sharpe, Barry Horowitz... how couldn't I? All I could watch back then was Superstars...

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?
Not particularly. If I mark for a guy, I don't care where on the card he is, I'll throw my cash their way.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)
Yup. Wearing my old Tajiri shirt from ECW right now. I don't know if Booker or RVD quite count in this, but they're not in that top tier at least, and I own shirts from both of them.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?
Definitely. I've got a few Austin shirts, the old Sting scorpion logo shirt, and an old 4 Horsemen shirt with Flair, Arn, Benoit and Mongo.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?

I watch all of the ppv's now as I'm not in charge of paying for them However, I could see myself tiring of watching Eddy and RVD in the midcard and Hogan and Taker in the topcard and not buying them on my own.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?
It depends on what else is on the show. Right now on Raw, which is the show I'm usually able to see each week, I love watching Eddy, RVD, Trish, Molly, Bubba Ray, D-Lo and Regal. If all of them have gone off, and the main is some combo of Taker, Hogan, NWO, Bradshaw, Austin, then I will flip around the dial. If nothing else catches my interest, I'll likely watch the rest of the show.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?
I haven't yet, but then I've always been lucky enough to usually be having at least one guy I like seemingly moving up to the top tier. From Rock a few years ago, to Benoit/Jericho recently, to Edge as of now. I could easily see myself making wrestling much less of a destination though if the topcard stays as stagnant as its been recently.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?
Who do you think is the person who keeps on making sure Meng is represented in the RSPW voting for Favorite Wrestler every year? ;)

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

Not so much. In general I like guys fighting for the top positions, just because I like matches about Wanting to be The Best or The Man or something, but if I like watching them do stuff, I'll like 'em.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

Nope. I was this close to getting the Kaientai one, but I passed.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

I have a HHH shirt I got in 2000 (The That Damn Good one, which rules regardless of affiliation), and a Shocker Shirt. The one to your left. I'm eyeing totally blowing my money on an Ultimo Guerrero mask, and I will buy the Satanico Smoking Jacket if/when they make it available for sale. Golly, I'm a big old Lucha Dork.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite

I don't go to WWF shows; I'd like to see some of the guys wrestle, but I dunno how well I could deal with the rest of it. I don't like being that far away, really.

I tend to go to the other stuff out here based on matches, as they tend to release tickets after announcing the card. The next thing I'm going to has a couple of indy guys I really like facing each other for the first time, so I'm all over that. I keep missing all the Lucha at the Grand Olympic, but there's never been a match I Needed to see or anything.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

On TV, usually, as I'll usually be interested enough in the main event. Although Lately the last segment of RAW has lost out to the first segment of the Daily Show, and McMahons talking leads to me watching other stuff as a rule.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Nope. If they stop wrestling, I'll leave.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

There was a period where I was so all about Hardcore Holly when he was doing The Big Shot thing where all the Giants Killed him. That ruled. I've stopped watching the WWF B-Shows due to being busy, but I'm always up for watching when CMLL shows me some Virus-involved action. I'll usually fast-forward through Japanese stuff I don't think I'll like, though.

Stone Cold t-shirt
Finally The Rock Has Come Back... t-shirt
Victim of the Crossface t-shirt
RAW is Jericho t-shirt

I just like good wrestlers. If they have a shirt, I'll buy it...if it looks cool!

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is in on the card - when you go to buy their merchandise?

Not to me, it doesn't.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

I've got most of the old Jericho WWF shirts, and a "You Better Recognize" D'lo shirt from long ago. Oh, and Christian sunglasses.. stop laughing!

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

To be honest, I don't think I ever have. I've been given lots of Stone Cold and Rock stuff as gifts though. Oh, wait, I bought a Triple H basketball jersey once..

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


Couldn't care less as long as I can see them.. and I go to any house show I get a chance to, because we only get one or two a year here. One's coming up next weekend, yay!

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yeah, and I never change the channel either except during commercials sometimes.. I didn't change the channel yesterday during the 7 minute Hogan lovefest, so I assume I never would.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

No. It's just a show, I don't get too worked up if guys I like lose a lot.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

All the time! If they have an entertaining gimmick (Kaientai, Planet Stasiak, Hurricane) or lots of skill (Chavo), I'll root for them to the point of annoying others. I just never get too upset when they invariably lose.

Does it make a difference to you, as a fan, what status your favorite wrestler is on the card-- when you go to buy their merchandise?

Not really. To tell the truth, I bought an nWo T-shirt shortly before WrestleMania, and that was the first wrestling shirt I'd bought since... damn, since I bought my Horseman sweater. First WWF shirt ever.

Have you ever bought a shirt for a B-level talent?

Well, certain members of the Horsemen (Benoit and Malenko) could have been considered B-level for some time. I also bought a Wolfpac shirt, and Konnan was certainly B-level. Tell you the truth, I don't think I've yet bought a T-shirt for an individual wrestler.

Have you ever bought a main-eventer/upper-card product?

Yeah, the Wolfpac T-shirt and hat, the Horseman T-shirt and sweatshirt, and the nWo T-shirt could all fit into that category, some better than others.

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show/PPV- or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


Well... I do prefer to see, for example, Benoit main-eventing PPVs rather than beating Madusa on Nitro in two minutes (via disqualification due to Jeff Jarrett's unwanted interference). But generally, the brand as a whole sells itself to me, not the individuals. Damn, reading over this, I come across as very group-minded, huh?

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yeah, once I start watching I never turn it off-- unless it absolutely sucks all.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

Well... my favorite wrestler has been Chris Benoit for the last six years, and he's been mostly mid-card while dabbling a little bit in the main event level. So, no, I don't stop watching the product. But I do exercise my right to bitch if I feel less talented people are getting more of a push.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

You ask me, Guru Zim, whether or not I've ever been a fan of a jobber? Wassupwidat? I'm Hurricane all the way. (mugs for the camera).

Who else... Al Snow, Crash Holly, Glacier (it's true... sigh... it's true), R/Maven, and yes, indeed... Disco does indeed rule all.

Oh, Canada,
Let's all go drink some beer...
Then we'll play hockey,
'Cuz we've got nothing better to do...

No, if I'm going to shell out the money the WWF wants me to than I'll buy the merchandise of my favorite not theirs.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)

I've bought figures. I don't own many shirts though.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?

Yes, my DeadMan Walking shirt. I love that shirt and the whole 'Decade of Destruction' gimmick

Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite
wrestler is when you decide whether or not you are going to a house show / ppv - or are you simply looking for the presence of people that you like to see?


NO, I go to shows to see the show. As far as B-shows, I would love to go only not at the A show price.

If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?

Yes, I'm a wrestling fan. There are times when I know the mainevent will suck and I'll skip such as the long 20 minute main event interview featuring one of owr favorite McMahons.

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

No, I have hope that one day Raven will rise higher on the card.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

I like Crash Holly, Stevie Richards, Taz and Justin Credible.

    I'm not a big merchandise buyer. The only wrestling merchandise I own is the La Parka mask that is hanging off the side of my cubicle.

    I guess La Parka qualifies. Lousy stupid WCW idiot bookers.



    Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?
    Nope.

    I'm so starved for live action, I'd go to anything resembling professional wrestling these days, save for the backyard stuff. Bad wrestling between people I've never heard of beats no wrestling. A junkie needs a fix. However, known crappy entities are ignored.



    If you are watching a show and your wrestler has wrestled, do you watch the rest of the show to see the main event?
    I'll generally stay through an entire show, although I did walk out of a WWF houseshow a couple years ago that had Rock/Bossman in the top spot.




    If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?

    Nope. You can always hope that they'll get out, and that others will see the light as to the greatness of that wrestler, thus necessitating a move.
