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...but then again my favorite wrestler doesn't realy have any.

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

Nope, but they don't make shirts big enough for me (sighs) and hats tend to be for main eventers.

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

Yep, have a Undertaker hat, a Triple H hat (which I have since hid), and a Hogan bandana.

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'm going to go no matter what. Anytime the WWE comes here, I'm there. Can't help it.

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 I didn't...I'd never see the main event. I don't think I've ever stopped watching Raw or Smackdown in the middle, seriously.

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

No, I would not. However, I can say I do tend to like guys a little less. I don't turn my back on them, but it's more fun to root for a guy as he makes his way up to me.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

Well, Holly's pretty much a jobber, sadly. I like Tommy Dreamer, Hugh Morrus, Crash, I actually tend to like a lot of them. As for the old school, Wrestling Challenge guys, no, couldn't even remember their names (besides Horowitz, who I hated...I'd probably like him now though).



HOLLY: How do you like me now?
COLE: You're a jerk Holly!
ME: (sigh) Cole ruins everything!

    Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product? -- Yes, in the old WCW.

    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 figure I paid for the durn ticket, might as well get my money's worth.



    If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product? -- No. I don't watch a wrestling promotion for just one wrestler.



    Have you ever been a fan of a jobber? -- Yes. Norman Smiley (pre-Russo) and Lenny Lane (pre-WHB) come to mind.

AWESOME, ANOTHER SURVEY!

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?
Nope, if I like them, I LIKE THEM, and I'll buy their stuff.

Have you ever bought a product for a B level talent? (Kaientai T-shirt, Tazz shirt, etc)
If you consider E&C in 2000 b-level, then yes.

Have you ever bought a Main Eventer / upper card product?
Undertaker: Lord of Darkness shirt from 1997.

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 probably would have backed out of the recent RAW if I had known that I would have been without Edge, Christian, Angle, Jericho, HHH, and the cruisers, because I got the tickets before the split. Erm, but I guess that's not what the question asked... so, no not really. As long as I know that I will see my favorite guys, I'll go to the show.

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 have more than one wrestler =).

If your favorite wrestler never leaves the midcard, do you stop watching the product?
Hell no, Hurricane is midcard for LIFE and I'll still watch.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?
Oh yes, GO CHAVO JR!!! GO HUGH MORRUS!!!

yay surveys! =D!!!

Do the JAKKS toys count? If so, I did get the Bob Holly, Rikishi and Test figures. And I'm not sure if this counts, but I got the original Y2J shirt when I went to the Armageddon '99 PPV.

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


Yes: Besides numerous main eventer figure and DVD/Videos, I've also gotten the "What you looking at Jackass" Austin T-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?


As long as the people I like are on the card, and I can afford it, I'll go.

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

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

I have stopped watching the WWE product in the last few weeks, though it has nothing to do with wrestlers I like being stuck in the mid-card. It has to do with shoddy storylines that don't interest me. As long as the angles catch my attention, I'll watch regardless of what position my favorite wrestlers are.

Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?

No.

1. No.
2. I've never bought a lower-tier wrestler's product.
3. I have a nWo Hogan 4-life T-shirt from the WCW days.
4. I only care that I'll see my favorites. What DOES piss me off is when a wrestler I hate (Rock) eats up the whole night with 20-30 minute promos and is in the main event.
5. Absolutely. I never turn off wrestling without watching the whole thing.
6. I love mid-carders. I'm an old-school Flocker, I dig Kanyon, DDP rules, etc.
7. Dude, everyone has a favorite jobber. Mine is EL CONQUISTADOR!

>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?

What *I* care about is whether my favs are doing *interesting* things or not. Never buy any merchandise. ;-)

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

See above.

>Does it matter to you where on the card your favorite

No. It's enough if the WWF^H E comes to our neck of the woods. The last time they came, we guys gave them their
2nd largest outdoor attendance record ;-)

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?

Oh yes. I used to love them for the simple reason that
even though they lost everytime, they were the hardest workers who actually WRESTLED everytime and not just give us a throw-away 5-minute squash. Guys like Repo man, Papa Shango, Damian Demento, etc.

Fav. face was El Matador. A match he wrestled against The Rooster is what made me a fan of 'rasslin'. ;-)

"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?"

Hell no!


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

Raven WCW shirt and BWO ECW shirt


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

Triple H Game Over shirt, Jericholic, Kane, Kurt Angle, Rock, Ric Flair "Big head signature" shirt (damn, I am a t-shirt junkie).

"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, there was a time in WCW when I would only watch it for the Billy Kidman matches, and Kidman never got anywhere near the main events.

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

See above, as I would always stick around for the entire show, even after seeing the Kidman match.

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

No, I am a long suffering fan of wrestling, not a fan of just "underrated underpushed wrestler X."

"Have you ever been a fan of a jobber?"

I was always partial to Tom "Rocky" Stone. This was because that guy looked NOTHING like a wrestler. I would more expect him to be seen in a bowling alley rather than in a wrestling ring. Honorable mentions go to Barry Horowitz, the Duke of Dorchester, and Dusty Wolfe.

I skipped the first house show in Springfield in 15 years earlier this year because it was the "B" squad at that point. Highlights were Tajiri vs. Kidman, RVD vs. UT and a drunk Bradshaw cutting a promo forgetting what town he was in. I know I'll get flayed alive for saying this, but that's not my idea of an entertaining card -- and my problem wasn't with the Undertaker being in the main event. I like wrestling and all, but no one I like (with the exception of the Undertaker and while I also like Bradshaw, he doesn't make a show for me) was on the card at all.

Personally, I like finishers to be a guy's "ultimate" trademark or signature move, but I don't think they should always end a match.
