Or he is one of those guys that still loves the business. Jimmy Garvin is a retired airline pilot and even a few years ago -- fat Jimmy would do an Indy spot. It's sadly probably the former, but I like to think some guys just like to still do it for fun.
If he's doing this for fun, then I would think that he'd have some better looking wrestling gear than that.
My iPhone won't let me see the picture.
Doesn't he also own several used car dealerships?
He used to wrestle for WWF right? Won't be long now..."What's Ronnie Garvin doing in the Impact Zone, Taz?"
Ruggedness is next to Godliness
Seriously. Not all of these old dudes who wrestle are like Ricky Morton. Some of them just like to do it.
That's what Wikipedia would like you to believe.
Slam! Wrestling did a bio on him last year. Says he has car dealerships and flies sometimes.http://slam.canoe.ca/SlamWrestlingBios/garvin_ron.html
Well, then it's settled. Mr. Barnes's hobby is stinking up the joint.
This never would have happened if Ronnie didn't accept that lame duck NWA title reign. Also that masked wrestlers breasts are magnificent.
Garvin's still got it! VERY impressed with his moveset at that age. I hope the WWE gets a hold of this video. They'd be lucky to sign any one of these guys.
Guess that money he got for turning on Dusty Rhodes didn't last.
After you "retire" what are you supposed to do, sit at home and wait to die? As long as he's able to wrestle, he wants to do it, and people are willing to pay him to do it, he should.
He needed money to have some work done on his hands. They were suffering from erosion.
>>Obviously, the measuring stick of anyone who comes up from NXT is the following 3 gentlemen: (shield)>>Wouldn't Bryan count?
As I said, I was just using NXT after FCW; ignoring all the contest BS, just when they started booking it like a real promotion, separate from the WWE.
Maybe he loves performing?
"Also, there is a contempt for him among some of his peers due to how he works inside the ring." That line sounds so forced and fed. Don't buy it.
My guess is that guys complain that he is too stiff. I mean he has gotten in two backstage fights and lost, to Yoshi Tatsu and Hunico so he has to piss off people in some way for that to happen
I was thinking the same thing.
Sounds like a very Meltzer'esque comment, but ironically, it was the only non-Meltzer news item! Go figure!
Word around WWE is they perceive Sheamus as a FELLA!
I have no reason to think this other than being in total non-sexual love with Dean Ambrose, but Lockdown sounds like it could be a fun movie. Maybe not actively, y'know, good. But a fun, boilerplate crooked cop flick with Dean Ambrose doing Dean Ambrose stuff? I'll probably check this one out.
"Sheamus, who wants to turn heel, does not appear to be a priority for the top brass of the WWE. Also, there is a contempt for him among some of his peers due to how he works inside the ring."I.E - He's a potato monkey.
Looks like a large yellow butterfly on the back of his red tights... something a Diva might be able to get away with.
"a stronger network than Spike but without the matching demographics."Nick, Jr.?
He must take liberties with some of the smaller guys. Why else would Hunico & Yoshi Tatsu kick his ass?
E! Entertainment? The 1am slot
Maybe it's just his personality. Perhaps he just has problems with people too foreign.
Yeah...he's got a Nasty Boy/JBL reputation it would appear. Bullies in the ring, gets their asses kicked out of the ring.
Sheamus better start lifting HHH's bags again.
Sheamus is a racist?
Well, the Irish are known for their love of potatoes. Though not usually of giving them away.
E!'s dumping Total Divas already?(That... would be a GOOD thing. But we all should know better.)
They've been known at times to be short on potatoes. Apparently Sheamus is unaware of this because he doles them out.
I have as much proof that he is as that he isn't, so why not?Simplest explanation here.
Wait, that's not Garvin. Nevermind.
This movie may be the Godfather of WWE Films releases.
Videotape of a turd sitting on the banana seat of a 1975 Huffy could be the Godfather of WWE films releases.
Yeah, we definitely have a potential tallest midget on our hands. The first Marine was an enjoyable enough mindless action flick, but my sister and I were REALLY high when we saw it in theaters.
Rugged Ronnie does it for the love of the sport. He is a pillar in his community and a well spoken approachable guy.
Well his nickname IS "The big white"... Alarm bells and red flags all around!!
At this point, videotape of The Godfather sitting on the toilet seat could be the Godfather of WWE films releases.Especially if when he's done he says, "Now I gotta pull... The POO CHAIN!!" and then flushes from an overhead cistern chain. If he says this but he's still on a regular handle flush unit, then Kevin Dunn can GTFO.
Poop jokes!!! It's clever and funny when the BOD does it!!
I recommend the OSW Review take on it.
Rick, I must take umbrage with your points about one Mr Breeze. Tyler is young and hungry and is on the fast track to raw, whether in this gimmick or another. Your personal opinion of a man will not condemn him to not making it big. Tyler reminds me a lot of a certain "captain charisma" early in his career.
It can be, yes.If John Cena came out every single week and pulled really bitchin' stunts on his BMX bike, we'd be sick of that too.There's a reason the fans stopped cheering so loudly for Hogan pretending to be deaf and forgetting his hearing aid in the ring, too. Everything fades with time.
I guess you were really high when you saw it.
If they gave him Hornswoggle as a racist leprechaun, he'd be a top heel
I would say that toilet humor is unconditionally lame, no matter who says it, but that's just me.
"I'm Vince Jordan and I don't like the BOD!!!!....but I'm here all the time."
Is Cena the only person on the roster who doesn't actively hate being a babyface?
wouldn't it be like "I don't like WWE, but I watch it all the time"?? At least I have fun here. 99% of people watching raw seem to hate life.
I'm not really sure he loves it, as much as he feels the need to be one for his charities. I could be wrong though. Who knows.
Well with the merch money he's pulling in, I'd sure love it too. I'm guessing Daniel loves it too.
"99%"...lol....there goes Mr. Exaggeration again!
Hey, something being bad and being enjoyable is not necessarily mutually exclusive. Yeah, it was terrible, but when you're stoned and the only two people in the theater (in fairness, it was like a Wednesday afternoon and it'd been out for a few weeks), it's fun.
Santino (until he retired) comes to mind.Booker T in that he's a massive egotist and probably thinks everyone loves him.
Then I'd suggest you need to lighten up here. 99% of people enjoy it. Maybe you just hate life.
"THEY CALL YOU MR EXAGGERATION BECAUSE YOU'RE SO U-GLY!!"
good job just repeating what I just said, in a failed attempt to turn it on me, or something.
Let's put away the Jump to Conclusions mat, Zanatude. Ronnie still looks in good shape, too.
Also your assertations that Adrian Neville is "green as shit" is laughable. Firstly, fecal matter is only green if it's been forced through your digestive system in a quick amount of time, most shit has a chance to change from green to brown by the time it evacuates your anus. Secondly, the dude is not a wwe creation and had been plying his trade for years.
Wyatts would be 1b surely?
So excited for the show tonight, can't wait for it. The 4-man should be pretty awesome. I'll prolly do some posting live from it if their is a thread for it.As for Zayn, he's 6'1", barely shorter than Punk and has a better toned body than Punk ever has, I don't think it's a hindrance. I still think his Syrian heritage may be his biggest hindrance at this point. Kinda hope they do a Steen/Zayn feud right away once Steen debuts just to see if they can bring the magic of their ROH and Chikara work to the national level.Neville needs a manager, he is not good on the mic, either give him Regal or Heyman and he's got a shot at making it to the upper midcard.Breeze's character can get as over as Dallas' I think, his ring work isn't bad, do wanna see if his face moveset might have less chinlocks and be a bit more exciting.Kidd, great wrestler, just has been held down for way too long to do much if they don't use Total Divas to get him over.
As long as he's not trying to pay the rent on the corner as Miss Atlanta Lively, I won't be too worried about him.
Confession: I marked out big time when he beat Flair.
It was tough listening to Ricky Morton tell Steve Austin that he still wrestles at these podunk shows at age 58 to pay the bills.
I don't think Jerry Lawler is hard up for cash and he still wrestles on the Indy's occasionally (even after the heart attack). Clearly some of the older guys just like to do it. This is a really misleading headline.
Still in peril after all these years. Talk about living the gimmick
I had a friend of mine actually wrestle Ronnie Garvin a few weeks ago (wasn't either of these guys). Ronnie Garvin is apparently retired and only takes the bookings close to his house for something to do on the weekends. He owns a farm in WV and lives very comfortably. Really nice guy too.
This might top Meekin's stuff for dumbest post of all time.
I thought he probably did it more likely for fun. I know some 70 years olds that practice karate.
Well now we know what WCW would be in 2014..."Greatest match in the history of our sport!"
Ambrose never appeared on NXT though and not sure about Reigns either. Rollins was the first NXT champ though.
Well he never appeared on NXT until after he was already appearing in the Shield on WWE programs.
Hey, I'm 81 and I just took up MMA!
