I remember back in the day (RSPW) when Hogan was facing Vader and there was a lot of hope/talk that Vader would shoot on Hogan when he faced him in a title match, IIRC.
Why aren't people asking for Brock to shoot on the Undertaker? Who would buy the ppv this sunday if they thought this was going to happen?

If I thought wrestlers were out to seriously injure each other, I wouldn't watch wrestling at all, much less pay for PPVs. Sure, they get injured sometimes, but you can get killed driving to Sunday school. It's all a matter of intent.

Not to mention, in a dirty fight, I would be willing to bet that Taker knows more tricks than a 25-year-old kid. ;-)

Besides, if he went all shootylicious on Taker, you can bet you'd never see him wrestling again, anywhere. File that under "professionalism". I forgot which thread, but there's one on this board (probably not this forum) where they discuss this.

I've heard tell that Bob Holly's injury occurred because he tried to rib Brock and not help him out with the powerbomb he was supposed to take. When Brock realized that Holly wasn't helping, he dropped him, and the resulting neck injury has put Holly on the shelf for a year. I don't want this to happen to anyone. There's no reason for professional wrestlers to shoot fight, because this is the dumb crap that happens when they do.

Also, I'm pretty sure that Lesnar will go over in the Cell, so there's no need for us to call for a shoot. Now... when it comes time for Brock to face HHH... then we may be able to talk.

'Cause despite apparently shooting on Hardcore Holly, Brock has no cred to shoot, especially in a main-event match like that and especially against a 15-or-so-year vet and "locker-room leader" like Taker. Brock's a rookie -- if he tried something like that, you'd be able to see him next month at Alpha Pro Wrestling's "The Debut" down at the Elks' Lodge. Not that Vader wouldn't have been canned, too, but he'd have much less to lose -- he'd had his time, and he'd always been active in Japan anyway. Plus Brock ain't jobbing to Taker, whereas Vader certainly was jobbing to Hogan.

I thought the "shoot" was in reference to the Shooting Star Press.

THATS what I wanna see... even though high flying just isnt part of Heel Brock.

Still, though... shoot, Brock! Shoot!

Be careful what you ask for...if WWE is willing to just -mention- semen on free TV, I shudder to think what they'll do with it on PPV. Also, I've seen that line before, only as "Eschew Obfuscatory Verbiage."

Ya know.. when Tony was first seen on Prime Time Wrestling in 1989, Bobby Heenan referred to him as "Tony Jabronie".
