I thought Ronda looked very awkward doing the tradional Wrestlemania sign pointing. I am curious on how she will do in the ring (I think she will be good), but will be a mess on the mike.

Have to say that sign pointing has always looked so silly and goofy to me no matter who does it, wish they would stop doing it.

So......I’ll start this thread off by fully admitting I’m a dork when it comes to wrestling. I don’t watch it much anymlre but was I was a huge fan in the 80s and 90s, as was my best friend. So last night we decide to draft wrestling teams and have them compete in Survior Series styles matches. His brother judged the teams to see who would win and I’m pretty sure I got hosed big time. I want to post the matches here to see what people think. The key is that every wrestler is in his prime and it’s a survivor series style match. And I apologize for some of the obscure wrestlers. So here goes:

Match 1:
team 1) The Rock. Stone Cold, Shawn Micheals. Macho Man, Sting
Team 2) Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant. Undertaker, Goldberg

Match 2:
Team 1) HHH, Bret Hart, Braun Strowman, AJ Styles, The Giant
Team 2) Hall, Nash, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Brock Lesner

Match 3:
Team 1) Yokozuna, DDP, John Cena, CM Punk Roddy Piper
Team 2) Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose

Match 4:
Team 1) Bautista, Chris Benoit, Scott Steiner, Mr Perfect Kane
Team 2) Vince, Shane, Edge, Rick Rude, Chris Jericho

Match 5:
Team 1) Sid Justice, Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy, Ken Shamrock, Mick Foley
Team 2) Booker T, Lex Luger, Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan

Match 6 (when one member is eliminated the whole team is out
Team 1) Legiom of Doom, Steiners, Hart Foundation (Bret and the Anvil), Hardy Boyz, Edge and Christian
Team 2) New Age Outlaws, Demolition, Harlem Heat, Team 3D/Dudleyz, Powea kid Pain

Match 7)
Team 1) Orient Express, Power and Glory, APA, the Rockers, Money Inc
Team 2) British Bulldogs, Bludgeon Brothers, Nasty Boys, Beer Money, Strike Force (Santana and Martell)

All matches are straight up matches. No cheating. No double crosses. No problems between teammates. I’m a dork but helo me out.

looking at your matches, they seem pretty even handed to me. therefore i am going to go as a feel as sp

Match 1, team #2. I think having andre and goldberg in their primes gives them an advantage.
match 2, team #1, have a pretty strong opinion on that. braun, triple h, bret and AJ. wow what a team.
match 3, team #2, hard to pick against yokozuna, but what a group team #2 is
match 4, team #1, always hard to pick against Y2J, but you have 2 Vince and Shane. team #1 is filled with some of the better technical wrestlers out there and a Demon.
match 5, very close, but will give the edge to team #2.
match 6, again very close, but slight edge to team #1. mostly because of hardy boyz and edge/ christian.
match 7, i must admit there are some obscure ones for me (orient express, power and glory). so i have to give the edge to team #2. as I know all of these teams.


thanks that was fun.

Match 1 - tie. seriously that could be argued either way and I wouldn't disagree. But I'd take team 2 because of Andre. But after I typed that...I'm still not sure. ha.

Match 2 - I thought team 1 immediately and I'm sticking with it..but after debating it...they are close.

Match 3 - Team 1 and this was easy for me. Plus they would kill on the mic!

Match 4 - Team 1 but ONLY because of Vince and Shane on the other team. They're not full time wrestlers so I take team 1 but their other 3 are great. But Team 1 one has no fluff.

Match 5 - Team 2. It's like a big vs little match...I'll take the big guys (and Daniel bryan)

Match 6 - Team 1. But I loved the New Age Outlaws....Team 1 is just deeper to me all around.

Match 7 Team 2. The most meh pairings of the list imo.

Match 1:
team 1) The Rock. Stone Cold, Shawn Micheals. Macho Man, Sting
Team 2) Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant. Undertaker, Goldberg

- Match is an epic encounter, but I agree with sentiment above that Andre is the difference maker. I think Andre and Hogan would end up the survivors here, to tease a future matchup.

Match 2:
Team 1) HHH, Bret Hart, Braun Strowman, AJ Styles, The Giant
Team 2) Hall, Nash, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Brock Lesner

- Very tough one to decide here. I think Hall and Nash get counted out brawling with opponents outside the ring. Flair, Angle, and Lesnar win the match.

Match 3:
Team 1) Yokozuna, DDP, John Cena, CM Punk Roddy Piper
Team 2) Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose

- Pretty even match here again. I think Cena overcomes the odds, and Piper hangs along for the ride.

Match 4:
Team 1) Batista, Chris Benoit, Scott Steiner, Mr Perfect Kane
Team 2) Vince, Shane, Edge, Rick Rude, Chris Jericho

- Vince gets eliminated early by getting pinned, and none of his teammates bothering to save him. Shane takes one of his insane once every few years bumps, by getting knocked off the top of a ladder that is under the ring for some reason, and going through the announce table. Kane hits Jericho in the face with a cup of hot coffee, and pins him. Perfect and Rude both get pinned off a back suplex spot. Edge goes on a run, eliminating Benoit and then Kane, but falls victim to the Batista Bomb and then a Steiner Recliner. Batista and Steiner end up the survivors, and do a big pose down after the match.

Match 5:
Team 1) Sid Justice, Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy, Ken Shamrock, Mick Foley
Team 2) Booker T, Lex Luger, Kevin Owens, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan

- Team 1 has a bit more star power here. I think Foley, Hardy, and Mysterio are your winners.

Match 6 (when one member is eliminated the whole team is out
Team 1) Legiom of Doom, Steiners, Hart Foundation (Bret and the Anvil), Hardy Boyz, Edge and Christian
Team 2) New Age Outlaws, Demolition, Harlem Heat, Team 3D/Dudleyz, Powea kid Pain

This is a tough one to call. Powers of Pain are the weak link, and I think they would set up a chain of eliminations, after Warlord makes a stupid mistake and gets knocked out and counted out. I could see all of Team 1 surviving this one.

Match 7)
Team 1) Orient Express, Power and Glory, APA, the Rockers, Money Inc
Team 2) British Bulldogs, Bludgeon Brothers, Nasty Boys, Beer Money, Strike Force (Santana and Martell)

I think Team 2 would work together better here. The Bulldogs end up the only surviving team.

Fun exercise!

I appreciate the participation. My buddy lives in Atlanta and comes up once a year and we like to do this. I posted the matches here because we let his brother judge and had lunch on the line and his brother had my buddy winning every single match. I thought I got hosed. I won’t say which teams are mine but in the three responses so far I’ve won 2 of 3. Anyone else care to give their opinion?

Tangent: This past weekend on a road trip we listened to some Sirius XM, the Outlaw Country channel. It turns out Hillbilly Jim has a show on Saturdays and Sundays. Good stuff!

That makes Bret Hart the only surviving member of the Hart family?

So sad. The Anvil was one of my favorites.

Guys from that era subject themselves to a lot of physical trauma. He was on medication to control seizures, and doctors suspected he had Alzheimer's disease.

They really worked the Hart Foundation matches into things of beauty, with Bret the tactician and Anvil bringing bursts of energy and power.

Sad that the work took so much out of him.

RIP

Re Jim Neidhart, it's sad he passed away, but here's an interesting tidbit I found out recently:

How many of you, without Google, know who his first manager was when he made his WWF debut? (Hint: It wasn't Jimmy Hart).

If not Jimmy Hart then the other big 80s manager...Mr. Fuji.

This is Jack Burton in the Pork Chop Express, and I'm talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there.

I think Raw Biz has got it. Mr. Fuji managing Neidhart rings a bell (so to speak) now that I think better of it.
