Yes, I am...a Scott Norton fan! Say what you will, but It always brought a smile to my face to see him come down to the ring, kick the crap out of some jobbers and just be a monster.

So anyone else part of the sect of Norton-ites? And if you are, anyone know what he's been up to? Any fond Norton memories?

Him kicking the living hell out of the Cat in Minneapolis (at a Nitro I was at) will always stand out in my mind.

As far as I know he's still wrestling over in Japan.

I liked Norton..

He just had a kick ass approach of kicking ass.
Loved him in 'Vicious & Delicious' (when we believed Buff could be a big star one day) when Buff would dance around and he would just whoop people.
He had a great powerbomb, and that shoulderbreaker was pretty wicked looking too.



The real reason HBK has never made that much talked about comeback used to bounce out of synch with the other Nitro Girls.

Scary lookin' dude. He was built like a damn wall.

I remember he tagged with Ice Train to form Fire and Ice.

He had a sweet powerbomb too.

I also enjoyed the one they call Scott NOrton, but no specific memory sticks out. Guess they didn't use him good enough or something.

I totally remember that night with the Cat. Me and my friends were watching, wondering what the hell the Cat did to Scott backstage to deserve that beating. I particularly remember the knife-edge chops he gave the Cat. My god, they were worse than anything Benoit could do to you. I have never felt so bad for anyone in wresting, EVER. Cat's chest was SOO red! I wish I had taped it, I want to see it again!!!

NJPW actually (their World title, which Norton held, is the IWGP [International Wrestling Grand Prix?] World title). I don't think Norton's wrestled there for quite a while, though.

Speaking of Norton's chops vs. Benoit's, Benoit chopped Ice Train so hard in a match on Nitro that Train supposedly started crying in the middle of the match.

true... i wouldn't want benoit chopping me.... but hell we've all seen injuries (a.k.a. HHH and Vicious) and they didn't cry.... either way... ice train isn't around anymore...

Honestly i would give anything to have Norton come out one time to the nWo music (or some good newer music) and just punk out a whiner (jericho).... now wouldn't that be an awesome way to start a feud.... have him bad mouthing norton or people from the old wcw.. and have norton come out....

I miss the super-nasty chops of yore. Seems like nobody's willing to take a really hard one these days, 'cept maybe for Regal. Of course, he's got that super-pale skin that makes it show up soooo well...

But just once, I want to hear a chop echo through the arena like a gunshot, so loud the crowd forgets to "woo" because they're too busy wincing. I'm a sucker for stiff shots in a match. I loved seeing Flair and Steamboat chop each other 'til their pecs were ground chuck. I got a huge kick out of Rick Steiner Steinerlining some jobber so hard his chest BLED, back when he didn't, you know... suck.

I guess my point is I want to see Tajiri and Test form a tag team and kick people in the face, dammit. And I want to see Scott Norton show up and powerbomb the living crap out of some poor soul.

Yup. Now all he needs to do is learn how to SELL A MOVE and he'll be set. He's not LoD-terrible at selling, but he's pretty close.

Yeah, this is true... Norton sells like... well, like a big huge guy who can't sell. I think he spent too much time in Japan (where a guy as large as him is somewhat rare) being booked as Big Gaijin Monster #5.

Admittedly, he LOOKS like a guy who could, legitimately, no-sell a hell of a lot of stuff. He's so thick it looks like he's got quads instead of pecs.

ARGH! You're going to kill me!

WHY must big guys sell normal moves? Norton sold the important ones just fine. I can't imagine he'd be a real easy guy to put down for the 1, 2, 3...

exactly.... it's the same argument always with Taker..... big guys who feel no pain aren't going to sell the normal everyday moves.... he's gonna take an everday move.... shrug it off... and beat the crap out of whoever did it unless they can pull something special off....
