I, of course, work at Blockbuster, and a few months ago a guy named Christian was hired. When introduced, I promptly burst into song singing, “Christiiiiiiian! Christiiian!”, earning me odd looks from my co-workers. I later told all you wieners about it, and it seemed to strike a chord, as other people came forward with the odd little ways in which wrestling has penetrated their real lives.

Well... it happened again to me last night. It was roughly 11:57 p.m., and a couple walked in the door. The manager on duty, Jennifer, called out to them, “You've got about three minutes!”

I just about died laughing, and no one could understand why. I kept imagining two huge Samoans suddenly appearing behind the customers and beating the hell out of them.

Helped bring some laughter to an otherwise fairly ordinary work day.

Did you get to be Rosey or Jamal?

Nope... tall, skinny white guys wearing a blue shirt and khakis are not qualified in any way, shape or form to play either Jamal or Rosie.

If I grew sideburns and started wearing really tacky outfits, though, I might make a passable Rico...

Hey wait, I've been to Blockbuster. Those polos count as tacky. Now, can you do a step-over mule kick, THAT'S the question...

Oh hell yeah.

Working in the TV biz, everything seems to be a "gimmick," a story has an "angle" to it, reporters get "booked" to do certain stories, certain on-air people get a "push" and some don't...the list goes on and on.

To the point where a buddy who's been watching the squared circle longer than I have always yells at me about it. If I've ticked him off, I've done my duty to humanity.

Hell, I've always thought of describing WWII in wrestling terms. Imagine: Germany and the USSR start out as a heel tag team, totally squashing jobbers (Poland), and sending the top babyface (Great Britain) running...until Germany turns heel-er on the USSR with a vicious chairshot (the Nazi invasion of the USSR.) USSR turns face by default, and forms bond with babyface Britain. Meanwhile, Germany heel associate Japan (think X-Pac, maybe?) Pearl Harbors the non-involved USA, bringing him into the title feud. (Kinda like how Hogan got a piece of Savage's rise up the WWF card back in the day.) Mega-Powers formed (USA, USSR, Britain), and heels job cleanly.

Of course, there's tension in the baby team, and THE MEGA-POWERS EXPLODE! (USA/USSR Cold War.)

And don't even get me started on France...f'n tweeners.



Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

So, WWE angles could be improved if the booking team started playing "Axis And Allies" or "Risk"?

HHH: Kane, I know your secret! Ten years ago you cheated and put extra soldiers on Madagascar when no one was looking!

.....on second thought better not give them any ideas



It's like WWE dangling a shiny gold coin in one hand while giving you an enema with the other, which I'm assuming is quite hard to do, but WWE is pulling it off - SKLOKAZOID

Hey, maybe Edge & Christian were closer than they thought when they said "He is the game...what's that mean, that he's the Parcheesi?"

I'm such a loser. I randomly write Kurt Angle facts in the employee journal at work. This week they decided to play a cruel joke by telling me that one of them had read on the internet that Kurt had badly injured himself at a house show and would be out for 8 months. I, of course, immediately called the boyfriend at home and he soothed my fears.

My coworkers lack integrity.

I think happy Kurt Angle thoughts at work. No, not those kind of thoughts (not that there's anything wrong with that). I work in a grocery store as a Service Clerk--the guy up front who packs bags, collects baskets, grabs buggies, wraps flowers, does price checks, etc. Anyway, as a result I deal with a lot of customers and their issues/problems/complaints during the day. Whenever I get a really annoying one or one that I'm fairly sure is trying to rip us off, I stop focussing on them. I remember that happy customers = sales = store revenue= continued salary = money to buy wrestling tapes = chances to see Kurt Angle goodness anytime I want in the comfort of my own home. So, I just thought you'd like to know I take your philosopy to heart, Ana.

Hey, that's a good point. I'll have to remember that when I'm annoyed at work.

But I still think it was pretty evil for my coworkers to trick me like that. To think we might have been deprived of 8 months of Kurt putting on excellent matches like they were as easy as tying his shoes.. would have been a great tragedy indeed.

I try to limit them, but sometimes I'll let loose something that no one gets.

I remember the day I found out Benoit was out for months...my boss Norm (a huge Rock fan) teased me about it for weeks afterwards!

I try to slip in a wrestling joke when I get the odd chance. Sometimes it's a lay-up

Here for instance.

but I've been known to get in an odd shot or two.

I was just in our lunchroom at my office a few minutes ago. I thought about putting one of my co-workers through a table. It would have been worth it!

Once I was at a laser show, and someone said that the show will start in "3 Minutes." I couldn't help but smile at that.

A few days back at the ol Disney Store, I forgot that one of my managers, Allison, wasn't making the schedules anymore when I was requesting a day off. I then went off about how she didn't have enough "stroke" and everyone looked at me like an idiot. Then again, I would have gotten those looks anyhoo. They all know I'm a huge wrestling fan and also know full well that I will talk about it at the drop of a hat.

I've just never understood this. Have you actually held the controller in your hands and played a game with it? That controller has never once left my hands cramping, and that's something I'm really grateful to Nintendo for.
