NATO's motto was "Keep the US in, Soviets out and Germany down" the WWE's is "Keep our homegrown guys in (the main event), any promotion with a TV deal out and the indy guys down (in the opening card)".
lol like lolwwe even cares about keeping their own guys in the main event anymore

You know, it's weird. But the deaths of Chris Benoit and his family still come across as surreal because I was such a huge fan of his. Unfortunately his last years on Earth sound depressing because of him losing so many friends and the injuries he sustained throughout his career that damaged his brain.
I had a friend in college in the mid-90s who knew Benoit in elementary school and Jr high. He said that he was the scariest person you’d ever meet, even then. Even as a kid, Benoit was intense and capable of violence that left an impression, so his life ending the way it did wasn’t that big of a shock. He was disturbed long before the head injuries.

Did you see the CNN documentary Death Grip: Inside Pro-Wrestling? They mentioned how his dad purchased teenage Benoit weighs to workout; which he did diligently. That reminded me when Jericho said Benoit would do a ridiculous number of squats as self punishment. Dude did have a few screws loose!

I saw that. The one thread that ran through a lot of the interviews was that he was obsessed with punishing himself brutally for imperfections or errors, even when nobody else cared, or even noticed, which is a sign of an abusive childhood. The guy was a timebomb.

yeah from anything I've heard Benoit was always really kinda fucked in the head to the point that in Japan even the puro guys were like "breh" at times

Also from Jericho's book, Benoit had ruined a NJPW run because he gave Jericho HGH before meeting with higher-ups. Having never taken HGH before, Jericho got sick in front of them, with Benoit saying "look at this disrespectful gaijin. You want to hire that?".

Total dick move.
Was it Bulldog that ribbed someone by giving them milk and said it was steroids to shoot in their ass or was it Bulldog that got the milk?

I don't know why he stayed friends with Benoit after that tbh

I don't know if I'm buying Nancy being abused by Kevin tbh. They shouldn't even have brought all that up to try and justify her affair, when it's all "he say, she say".
There were plenty of rumours long before the affair that Kevin got Nancy into drugs and had pimped her. The pictures that ended up in Hustler were from Kevin attempting to get her into porn. With all that in mind, it doesn’t sound like a healthy or happy relationship to me.

Oh no, I just heard that they're getting rid of the Andre the Giant Battle Royale, and the diva version of the same match at the pre-taped Wrestlemania. How will we ever know who's gonna be a major loser over the next year?

Just watch that weeks RAW or Smackdown. It would probably have been Ricochet and Liv.
