jivesoulbro Bauerwurst Since: 25.12.02 Since last post: 57 days Last activity: 57 days # 1 Posted on 11.3.07 1231.30 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. I tried searching on youtube but had no luck. Promote this thread!

I've been searching that for months now.

AIM: # 5 Posted on 13.3.07 0024.11 | Instant Rating: 5.43 The "boots" commercials were some of the best WWE ever did, and I think it would still be effective today. Still sends chills up my spine watching it. College, Sports and more!: Experience It

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

Memories...awesome stuff to relive. Thanks for hunting those up. Totally made a few minutes of really enjoyable and giddy. "We're like Soapbox Heroes and we've got so much to say."
WWE didn't help themselves by its knee-jerk "it couldn't have been steroids!" immediate reaction to the Benoit tragedy. (Jeez, I still can't fully believe Chris is gone).
