Chris Hero wrestles for ALS


Chris Hero will be doing a 2 hour gauntlet match thanks to $2000 in donations, and if they hit $2500 he'll do 2.5 hours, so let's all throw money at charity and make him work even harder.  I put $10 in and they're only about $100 short of adding another 30 minutes to his workload that night.  

Comments

  1. Only about half the length of his average IWA: Mid-South match.

    I can't help but smile when someone does something for charity. They don't have to do it but they do anyway to help someone else out. That's cool no matter how you look at it.

  3. Wow, he really let himself go a bit after his NXT run, eh?

  4. I think we should raise money for charity by getting pledges for Scott to hang out with us in the night thread for an entire evening.

  5. Wouldn't the ice bucket challenge be easier?

  6. Chris Hero isn't senior enough to use ice yet.

  7. Some do it to look cool.

  8. I saw video of one of his 90 min matches with Punk. It was... way, way too long. I love long, slow paced matches, but this one is absurd. Self indulgent.

    True but at least in this case someone else benefits too.

    ReplyDelete
  10. At least it's for a good cause. I have zero interest in watching a two hour match, though.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yeah, he did. I saw him wrestle at a local indy here and he was pretty chunky. A few months later, I saw him at Wrestlecon wearing a shirt that said "I work hard for this body," which I appreciated.

  12. He should start a second charity where the people who will actually have to sit through this match can donate money to subtract time. This is the one I'd put my money in.

    Oh, *now* he's serious about losing weight

    ReplyDelete
  14. His 90 minute match with Punk was when they were both completely new.

  15. HOW WILL WE BUY THE NEAR FALLS

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's a gauntlet match, so that eases up the 2 1/2 hour potential run time. As a one fall match, that's ridiculous, but the idea of him working 6-7 different matches... not the worst idea ever.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Are you headed to Windsor to take advantage of your meet and greet opportunity and to watch the match?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I guess I could be cool and bust on Chris Hero but I'll just say good for him for doing what he can. Plus,he killed our timeline's Dr. Cube,so we owe him thanks for that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Unless it's a Rumble match. I'd totally watch two hours of even a halfway decent Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's a gauntlet. Presumably the goal is too win as many as he can in that time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've always been under the impression that he let himself go kind of as a "fuck you" for him getting fired for not hitting the gym as often as he was told to

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, fuck that guy

    ReplyDelete
  23. Uh, I've seen photos of Chris Hero recently. Can he wrestle for 2 hours without dying?

    Seriously, though, good for him. No desire to watch it at all, but it's a cool thing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Even before. You look at him when he first hit NXT, he almost had that visible-rib-cage look. After he became That KO Kid, he filled out and kept filling out. He was visibly pudgy by the time his last NXT match was filmed and after that, yeah, there are photos of him back on the Indy scene where he's got a gut and hips hanging out over his tights, muffin-top style.

    ReplyDelete
  25. They're still almost $60 short.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You spelled TNA wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If you get shit on for using an ice pack, imagine the repercussions of using a bucket.

    ReplyDelete

    That sounds like he's saying "fuck you" to himself more than anything. The only thing hurt over Chris Hero gaining weight is Chris Hero's health.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Without buckets backstage, Randy Orton might have to use an actual toilet.

    ReplyDelete
  30. 90 minute matches are the wrestling equivalent of a Judd Apatow movie.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It'll probably be the SMASH Wrestling roster, since they will be in town that weekend anyhow.

    I think we owe HHH an apology. Because we assumed that the Chris Hero issue was about him not having abs or being ripped, but Kevin Owens and Joe prove that he's not Vince in that regard. The issue must have been conditioning, not physique.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Maybe lunchbags...

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's quite possible, although it's worth noting that Joe and Steen have always been bigger guys. That's just their look. If they were suddenly billable at 220 and ripped, it'd look weird as hell. Hero was never cut, but he was a lanky, gangly looking dude.

    Also, they jumped through hoops to sign him and waited for months to sort out his testosterone issues and all. When a company extends you that sort of grace, it's expected that you're going to do what they ask of you.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wouldn't. There hasn't been an entertaining Rumble in years.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I doubt conditioning was the issue. I watched him work Tanaka at DGUSA last year and they went quite a while and had a great pace.

    ReplyDelete
  37. But he's EXPOSING THE BUSINESS~!~!!!!!@~!

    Actually, it's really cool. Good for Chris.

    ReplyDelete
  38. it's a nice thread you have here. Would be a shame is someone were to... troll it !
