WWE

Same thing lol they were basically what the WWF’s answer to the NOI.

but I only just noticed that :rofl:

True, with Ron Simmons posing as Farooq, it was easy to see what the WWE were basing it on lol

Anyone remember when DX put racial slurs in the NOD locker room and they blamed the Hart Foundation for it?

Without being snowflakey, WWF was so dodgy politically haha. Imagine these days if they set up a troupe of wrestlers to play as the Nation of Islam in heel roles and basically encourage everyone to fucking hate on them :joy:

Imagine The Godfather and his ho train in the age of Me Too :joy: :joy: :joy:

How on earth did Vinnie get away with that?! :joy:

Since everyone is changing their profile pics to wrestlers, I followed the crowd. I didn’t really start getting into it until about 2001 or so iirc. I missed a lot of the attitude era

Very good choice. Angle was a really good heel at his peak. No doubt about that. And he was an amazing wrestler - one of the best to ever do it

Literally he was one of the best ever with his gold medals that he never let us forget about lolol. I really loved Angle, one of my favorites. I knew a guy he went to high school with and some of the stories he told me only made me love him more :joy::joy:

Angle proved the perfect heel foil for the likes of Austin, the Rock and Triple Bore.

2000 was Angle’s year

Anyone heard of AEW? A very real threat to WWE set up by Cody Rhodes, no less. Rumoured to be stealing talent like Sasha Banks and Randy Orton.

Vinnie’s shitting it

Yeah and bankrolled by the billionaire owners of Fulham too. Glad to see some competition hopefully the product picks up too because the decline has been very steep over the last 15 years.
