  2. You know what's crazy? Unless I'm missing him, one person who does not appear on this tournament list...The Undertaker.

  3. Pretty sure Marty won strictly off the fact many people have re-watched the 93 & 94 Raws on the Network and appreciated how good he was when he was on. And rightfully so.

  10. Dude, I realize that. I'm just pointing out that a guy who was around for 20+ years, did everything, was the most protected guy in the company, but he never had a run with the IC title that 73 other guys got and was tossed around like a hot potato. Just kind of...something to consider

  11. best news all day.

  12. Oh, well, that's fair. But your comment totally didn't reflect that train of thought. Just saying.

  13. I am laying it all on the line here. If Pedro Morales beat the Mountie I leave the BoD FOREVER!!!!! Please everyone, let me stay here and post. Vote for the Mountie.

  14. Why are you forcing me to vote for Pedro Morales?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Fuck The Mountie. He only had the title for 2 days and lost it in his first defense. I tried to take this tournament as well as the last one from a serious point of view. I voted for each entrant based on how they stacked up against the other guy(s). I get voting based on personal preference, fun, whatever. But really? Rougeau?

  16. When I used to fantasy book as a 14 year old, using the SNES Royal Rumble game to simulate matches, I used to always put the Undertaker in IC matches. He was actually my go to IC guy and Bret and Shawn traded the World title.

  17. You'll vote for Pedro because you love his in ring style and hate the Mounties gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'M THE MOUNTIE!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. What do you mean how they stack up? If it was just about who had the belt the longest we can just look at the list from Wikipedia. Why bother with having a tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  20. All three guys I voted for made it through! Long live the Mountie! His Rumble match with Piper was awesome, and his heel act really made Piper a super face.

  21. I'M THE MOUNTIE!!!!

  22. BEHOLD THE GREATEST INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION OF ALL TIME!

  23. I guess you're right, I was just trying to dramatize the point.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm the Mountie and so's my wife!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Beat you to it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree with you on how to vote. However, when all of the title reigns are less than 2 weeks, it is kind of hard to distinguish between them. Besides, I also remember his title reign more than the others.

    Suck it.

  28. Day for day no question he was the GOAT!

  29. This shit is passing by WAY TOO fast. Who the fuck won the tag team one?!

    Look at how the IC belt glistens against his glorious red shirt.

  31. The Mountie as a character was portrayed as a loser in general for its whole existence, was never considered a serious threat, and the wrestler that portrayed The Mountie had previously been himself, which was also portrayed as a loser. I'm not hating on the gimmick itself, just the booking and the portrayal. The gimmick could have been awesome if the booking was there.

  32. Only because he lost the belt to Piper. That was a Moment.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They need to bring back the black leather for that belt...the white doesn't work for everyone.

  35. Being an IC champ requires the chin of a greek god.

  36. (In J.R. voice)

    AND HERE WE GO!

  37. Red signifies danger, so maybe it was his subconscious way of saying "Danger: putting the IC title on me will kill your B-houseshow business".

    ReplyDelete
  38. Only because they ran shows in towns full of criminals and because he was a mountie, he did his duty and arrested them all.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I wonder if Mountie could have been the top babyface if his gimmick came along the same time Due South became popular.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't get it

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey, looks like Jarrett finally gets to work with Austin after all!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Jarrett should win that one because Austin did nothing as IC champion.

  43. New avatar. I suggest everyone do the same. We need to show solidarity in our love of The Mountie while he is unfairly attacked by latinos like Pedro Morales. #Ferguson

  44. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd change my avatar to Marty.

  45. The Mountie: Bravely defending Canada's borders from illegal Mexican immigrants since 1991.

    ReplyDelete
  46. So that's why he shocked Tito at WM7.

    ReplyDelete
  47. well neither did Hogan. I can recall him only ever getting 1 title shot at the IC belt: wrestlemania 6

    ReplyDelete
  48. Except make it nearly as important as the WWF title in the fall of 1997.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'm with Cult. Enough with lawless PR's attacking honest and heroic law enforcement officials.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Considering The Mountie was up against Test, Rikishi, and Dean Douglas he more than stacks up well against those three.
