      Yellow - Paralyzes I think.


    Tajiri busted out the black (blinding) mist during his feud with Jamie Noble as well. Poor Nidia... she never saw it coming.


Lol. And if I remember correctly, when they wondered what was in that mist, Michael Cole said only God and Tajiri knew.
I still use that line from time to time.

The brand seperation is always pretty non-existant after Wrestlemania, which is usually why they have the draft to reinforce it again.

I seem to remember both Stan Hansen and Dick Murdoch doing a Dark Brown Mist in their days. Hey-oh!

I think Kabuki used the extra-potent black mist in the early 80's, which led to Fritz Von Erich losing "25% vision" in one of his eyes.

Yup, Wikipedia has an entry on the different kinds of mist:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_wrestling_attacks#Asian_mist

And I know it's been talked about before, yet I always forget: "how DO they pull off the mist effect"? Sneak in a shot of water, mixed with food coloring?

I believe it's Kool-Aid.

(consults The Internet)

The Internet tells me it's usually Kool-Aid or Jell-O.

Is it Kool-Aid in Japan too?

I dunno, they love him for his word, not his light misogyny. I was thinking of it more like Booker T and Goldust than a romance for the ages. "AJ may be a fat idiot but she's my fat idiot."

Mm'kay. So is the little (presumably plastic) bottle of Kool-Aid/Jell-o concealed somewhere on the wrestler's body throughout the match? If a guy does the mist right at the bell, it's understandable. I was just always intrigued at how Muta or Tajiri could wrestle for about 15 minutes and then whip out the Mist. Similar to concealing a razor blade I suppose.

I think it's more powder than liquid.

It's usually slipped to them by the ref or their manager.

The two versions I've heard is that it is liquid kept in a condom (ick) and then bitten at the right moment, or it is just powder and the spit makes it liquid.

Didn't know about the Blue Mist. Any well known matches it was used in?

This is my first time hearing of Yellow Mist before. Hansen spitting a dark brown mist had to be "Tabaccy" spit which is the most dreaded mist of all.

Blue mist is only effective against Darren Young.

So how does the draft work with one GM?

Same as it did before, I guess: GMs haven't really played a big part since the picks have been "random" anyway.

With FCW moving to Connecticut, why not draft some of those guys? Maybe five of them, somewhat like Vince signing Drew McIntyre and Eric Escobar so close together, and then rearrange the existing rosters.

detailed:


    The 4/23 show was at one point earmarked for the draft. I’ve heard rumblings of the draft being on the three-hour show on 6/11 from Hartford but anything that far out is subject to change. There was talk last week about not even bothering with a draft, given that everyone is on Raw every week anyway and guys like McIntyre, Del Rio, Kane and Show have switched brands back and forth. There is the feeling that some wrestlers need a change of scenery, with Ziggler’s and Orton’s name being mentioned, but the Smackdown house shows need Orton unless they move Punk to Smackdown and make him the star of the show

1: Dont you just LOVE internet reporting??? In what other world could you get away with this?

2: After reading the above a few times, I love how absolutely anything, everything, and nothing could happen next and this paragraph would still be accurate. Hilarious.

Like many here, I used to like Jarrett a lot, but I just never bought him as a main eventer. And I especially don't buy him as the unstoppable, dominant force the promotion revolves around.
