I don't think it's an age problem so much as it's a "too crippled-up to be able to wrestle" problem. You think he'd risk getting in the ring with a kid who just barely knows how to fall properly?

See my original post. Double A wouldn't be stepping in the ring, period. All he'd be there for would be promos. Maybe they'd have a little bit more of 80s, old school flavor to them, but the trainees could do far worse than to learn from Arn.

As for his condition, I agree with you. As much as I'd love to see him in the ring one more time, it ain't gonna happen, because it's too risky. Especially if he's in the ring with the fresh meat.


Basically you're just a big tough bastard.
People respect you but don't really like you.
And frankly you couldn't give a shit.

I'm not so sure if it is the soap opera crap that grabs the ratings...perhaps the shows mentioned were flukes. If someone could show a few examples of shows highlighting soap opera type stuff grabbing the ratings, then I would believe it. I'm just skeptical, because all of the wrestling fans I talk to(and most of them are just casual fans)watch just for the in ring training.

As far as a trainer for just promos, I'd say go with Foley. He still has a large fanbase, and that can probably help the ratings, and he is pretty damn good in the promo department.

What the show needs are contestants who are less concerned about the next bar hop and making out, than hunkering down to wrestle.

Make this a real contest. Train them in Stu Hart's dungeon, then have them go to Japan. The men work for a little bit in All-Japan, and the women work in GAEA. A slap on the ass from Aja Kong will defintely toughen up the women.

Yeah, I think they'd be better off with Foley or some other recently-active worker who was good with promos. Though I wonder if that's something that can really be taught, just because there are quite a few stars who don't seem to have the knack for it and I'm sure it's not for lack of trying.

I understand what you mean - you're talking about IT. IT is that intangible that the mediocre lack and that the truly great have - that ability to connect with the crowd, whether through actions or words.
