Sample text

In nearly every case, wrestlers are simply fans who wanted to participate. Interview almost any established Al Snow star and you’ll hear stories about Dick the Bruiser, Lou Thesz, Bruno Sammartino, and the others who came before them. Why? Because they watched them on television in exactly the same way today’s fans watch John Cena and Randy Orton. They were just like us. And often they still are. Don’t get me wrong. Not every performer was a fanatic before breaking into the business. But even the ones that weren’t, almost always become that way once they’re in.

Everywhere you looked, there were nWo shirts. Way before Austin 3:16 or ECW logos, there was the New World Order. 4 Life. Too sweet. When Eric Bischoff declared a holy war on all things WWF, it took professional wrestling to a level that no one thought possible. Fans got to watch a real feud play out, between entities that were something other than wrestlers. We watched multinational companies go at each other on a weekly basis. Before this, apart from a few pathetic “We’ll put on Clash of Champions the same day as Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan WrestleMania” attempts, World Championship Wrestling had never really made a dent in the façade of the house that Vince built.

Together, they can talk about their opinions on crowd psychology, character development, match pacing, and tons of other topics most fans never think much about. . ASK QUESTIONS LATER ✯ When you look at things in this way, it takes a lot of the mystery and vicarious kick out of backstage rumors. It also helps clarify some of them. I’ve gotten e-mails from readers who read news items on wrestling newssites saying they only finally “get it” because of something one of my guests has said on ClubWWI.
