Anyone have a link to those commercials they ran around '97 in WWF with the wrestlers talking about their real sports experience and their injuries? I remember they ended with Bret or Michaels or Shamrock saying, "Try lacing up my boots," and I thought they were pretty cool.
When I hear about lacing boots, I always think of that Hacksaw Jim Duggan promo that USA used to air to promote Prime Time and All American Wrestling:
"What does Hacksaw Jim Duggan do to get ready for a fight? I lace up my boots, I shine up my two by four, I splash cold water on my face and my strategy is ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK."
I loved that one.
"How could we possibly appreciate the Mona Lisa if Leonardo had written at the bottom of the canvas: 'The lady is smiling because she is hiding a secret from her lover.' This would shackle the viewer to reality, and I don't want this to happen to 2001." - Stanley Kubrick
This is quite sad. With this "ECW"-esque resurgance on Smackdown, Dreamer would have fit in quite well with the Dudleys' new attitude...even if he kept a relatively small roll as the hired muscle or something like that.
