The CM Punk and Miz ones had me dying laughing. This was great stuff.
Brazil gets all the good tournaments.
Hey, fuck your couch buddy! The WWE Ladies Tag Championships were settled in a tournament in Egypt, and there are no more prestigious titles in wrestling history than those!
...OCD kicked in on Punk's and spent too much time trying to Beautiful Mind it for the words the sticky left showing. Wish I could see an end game for Mizdow where he's elevated back to a real life wrestler instead of curtain jerker comedy act of the day.
Is the Rock's on wrong, it claims he debuted March 10 1996, but as far as I can remember his debut was at that years Survivor Series about 6 months later.
I liked how the big show one started:"Well..."
I had zero idea that Rey won the belt in 2011
Really?He won it on Raw the day after CM Punk "walked out" during the Summer of Punk.He lost it to John Cena literally 80 minutes later.
This article here says he made his ring debut in a dark match that day against the Brawler. But I don't know if that should really count. http://whatculture.com/wwe/10-things-dont-know-wwe-1996.php
Interesting that they include one-off debuts for guys like Flair, Hardy, and Orton, but ignore early jobber debuts by Foley and Bryan. That makes both of their times from debut to champion considerably longer.
I also enjoyed the potshot at Hogan in the Yoko entry.
The Andre the Giant one was pretty funny, too.
Brock Lesnar's entry was sponsored by Jimmy Johns? Bwa ha ha ha ha ha
The Punk one was the best.
I've never seen a picture of Stan Stasiak before. He looks like a bad guy from a Guy Ritchie movie.
Nice little cameo by Christian there.
"Lost it in a fantastic match 80 minutes later."Fixed.
"Lost it in a fantastic match 80 minutes later."...that should have headlined Summerslam 2011.Double Fixed.
Ok I legit laughed out loud at the Miz profile, very amusing.
This is why peer review is a good thing.
TJ: WWE.com has a Hell of a piece on the 'future' of the WWE, and realistically speaking they hit on 9 out of the 10 (not really sold of Corbin like they are). It's a damn good read.http://www.wwe.com/inside/10-superstars-who-could-be-the-future-of-wwe
Yeah, this is one I've changed my mind about. I always thought it was silly to think anything but Punk/Cena should have headlined that Summerslam. But Rey still had enough value at that time that Rey/Cena had some juice as a never-before-seen dream match. Then Punk could've made his return with the real title at the conclusion of their Summerslam match.
"The champ was finally here and has refused to leave ever since."
It was the next week, wasn't it? Because I thought Punk came back (I mean, "back" inasmuch as he was gone for eight whole days) at the conclusion of that match.
"In typical fashion Hogan would show up, demand a title shot, get it, and win."
If Flair debuted in 1996, why isn't Do let's debut his 1985 squash with the Bulldogs.
Oh, what a nice little thing there.
The debut dates are all very off. They list some guy's TV debuts (Cena on SD, Punk on Heat as a jobber) yet fail to list other guys TV debuts (Angle, Daniel Bryan on Velocity in 2003)
I was in Afghanistan in 2011 so I basically missed the entire year of wrestling : /
With Mallet and Blue starting for Houston, I really dont see how the Browns can blow this one. But, they are the Browns
It's crazy to think that if Cleveland didn't lost to the Jags, they'd be 7-2.
The also say Sheamus debuted on SD in 2008 when he debuted in ECW in 2009.
I'm home alone all day. I'm gonna dvr up the football games so I don't have to see any commercials and watch the 2008 survivor series.
http://506sports.com/... and again, your NFL coverage map.
I can't believe Pony is so low. I voted for that and Rush Rush based on junior high dances.
Which three WR to start???? Answer if ya follow them, not by name value. Jeremy Maclin, Odell Beckham Jr., Roddy White, Martavis Bryant, and Jordan Matthews. I'm leaning toward Beckham, Bryant, and Matthews.
Maclin, Beckham, and Bryant.
White, Beckham, Maclin
didn't Cleveland drop a 1-3 point game in Week 1?
Sanchez wins ONE game... Erin Andrews makes "fuck me" eyes at him.
I'd definitely start Maclin.
"Their Wrestlemania III match in front of forty septillion Hulkamaniacs, during which Hogan bodyslammed the five ton giant..."Outstanding.
Liked how Christian was at the bottom of Edge's profile there.
I wonder what Benoit's would have been like had he held the WWE title
That's what she said
And the Kid wouldn't go to any of them unless they were for PWG or something out of Japan
Rumors on the dirtsheets said that when the title was held by Abeyance between WM20 and Summerslam 2004, it was really Benoit under the mask.
I would totally mark out if big head/tiny body Magnus was pictured
Vince's debut is wrong. Bell never rang. No match. Bryan wrestled on TV before 2010.
Im thinking he means Foley...
Because Ric Flair was promoted as a star in 1976. Foley wasn't.
Yeah, he even won matches with his dreaded Vertical Suplex. :)
What about Brian Kendrick???
but Hardy is listed as 94 when he was nothing more than an enhancement talent. Little bit of inconsistency there.
"Come back Batista. We promise not to boo this time." Seriously.
GODDAMN AUTOCORRECT ON MY PHONE. yes I meant Foley.
It was actually a week later.
Yeah. It would have been 80 minutes later, but the beginnings of "COO HHH replaces Vince" pushed it back a week.So not only did the Summer of Punk get sabotaged, but the beginnings of the Authority were planted there also. UBER FAIL. ALL THE FAIL.
I spoke with OP of this and he admits that there's plenty of inconsistencies in part of laziness and overlooking due to the amount of work he put into it. He has angle debuting in April of 99 when he wasn't on television til survivor series of that year
Interesting that they acknowledged that Kane was Dr. Isaac Yankem and "Diesel" before becoming Kane.
I didn't even notice he was missing until I saw your post.
Foley was in the WWF in 1985? Never knew that.
That wasn't done by WWE.
Not missing, this is for the WWE strap not the Big Gold.
Do you mean The Brian Kendrick?
Technically Angle did debut on Heat in April 99.as part of an angle with Tiger Ali Singh.
Did I miss something? Are we talking about the guy who teamed with Paul London, right? This whole joke was way over my head beginning with the imgur gif. What's the joke here?
? Who was Abeyance? And why does my tablet have Beyonce as an autocorrect?
That's ok. Very few things in life are consistent.
Which one was the Punk one? Dude am I seeing the same link you guys are?
Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez5YQUWPP7Y
Kendrick "held" the title during a Championship Scramble match.
Maybe because they called him Nick Foley, it doesn't count?:)(I know he did other matches also.)
... wrong match. But still wrong name, also.
To clarify: The tournament started the night after, Vince postponed the finals to fire Cena (but got fired by HHH). Rey beat Miz the next week, then Cena got a shot that night and won it back. Punk showed up after with the real title.
Might just have a blank screen with the words "Edited for content" written in front
"The Brian Kendrick - Current WWE Champion" was once an on-screen graphic during a WWE Title Match.
Ah. OK. Really?
I have an idea...I'll show you (you'll see)...
Kanye West programmed it?
The profile that said "CM Punk"
I personally enjoy that, for all intents and purposes, Brazil was apparently this magical place where things happened and you couldn't verify facts. It might as well have been Parts Unknown
He never won the WWE title?
Wouldn't that be the kardashian chick? I'm likely to believe jay-z programmed it ( though he doesn't get autocorrected)
I didn't see one is why I'm asking.
Man, I realise the pics have been... kind... but I still really prefer the beefy Buddy Rogers/ Bruno/Pedro body types. They just looked more like guys that could take a chair to the head. The current 'athlete' bodies look too high performance/ low reliability. Kinda what is playing out behind the scenes.
When did this happen
You can find it on youtube. Angle was playing a fan in the front row with Karen and tiger tried to buy him off to spit on the American flag
Nope, Benoit was World champion while Eddie (and then JBL) was WWE Champion.
