    Nah, I think it was earlier than that. I remember being at WWF house shows in the 80's, and we would do that no matter who administered a chop. Or maybe that's a Toronto thing...

I don't remember any crowd Wooo-ing during chops in the 80s and early 90s, at least as far as the WWF and WCW went. Not to say that it didn't happen, but I first remember hearing it on ECW tapes.

"If you want me to watch the shows, buy tickets when you come to town, buy t-shirts, and pay for a PPV every three days, you bet your ass I'm going to hard to impress. And when you give me stuff that blows and then tell me I don't get a vote on sharing that opinion, I'm going to tell you to go catch an STD." - Hogan's My Dad

I think we need to frame Lance Storm's quote for this thread:

"I seldom read wrestling biography as like the business itself there is usually a degree of "working" involved in them. This misinformation isn't always intentional it's just wrestlers generally have a slight (or sometimes unbelievably huge) bias opinion of their contribution to the industry. After years of trying to both get over and put yourself over it's hard to break with tradition and be completely objective."

Storm also mentions he "picked up" a copy of the book. Does that mean that even he had to buy one himself? No kickback from WWE? Strange.

"Back in the old days of the Bash they had guys like Dean Malenko and Arn Anderson. But we got Sable and Torrie!" -Michael Cole continuing to prove he's an idiot (paraphrased due to me not having a copy of GAB 2004, nor will I ever)
