A great Jake Roberts promo and match, you say?
Yeah, Princess, TOP THIS. Great Jake promo, great match, and then he slaps the shit out of Elizabeth.
Promo of the Day — Rock/Austin 11/12/01
A Promo of the Day: “We’re Just Talking About Video Games”
I might have thrown this one up before, don’t remember. Punk and Austin trying to hype up WWE ’13. Austin channels his 1996-early 1997 persona by just being miserable and annoyed the whole time. Ross plays his role perfectly, being somewhat of a passive aggressive instigator. Was it just about the video game or were these guys possibly planting the seeds for something bigger that didn’t come to fruition? Either way everyone seemed to be in good form here although I almost forgot the calm, babyface version of Punk.
Promo of the Day: One-Eyed Dusty
Now that I have a Stone Cold Steve Austin podcast I need a Dusty Rhodes podcast to complete my life. He doesn’t need to have guests on…just cut promos on random shit. Dusty can talk about why he hates shopping at Trader Joe’s and I’d listen.
Promo of the Day: “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
Promo of the Day: Funk wants to be a Florida Cracker
Promo of the Day: “I’d like to talk to Tom” – 1988 angle of the year
Dirty White Boy v. Tom Pritchard from Continental. No way this angle would fly today, but hot damn!
Promo of the Day
How can’t you love this?
Team him up with the singing guy on NXT. The mic work would be epic and awesome.
Promo of the Day! Bobby Heenan at the Hall
Since there were so many good memories after reading Bayless’ transcript of his shoot 12 years ago I figured I’d pop up his full HoF speech. His voice is affected by his cancer but he’s still the Brain. Have a wonderful weekend BoD’ers!
Promo of the Day: JASON THE TERRIBLE // ZODIAK
Care to provide a little context on The Zodiak and Jason The Terrible for the confused bloggers? I tried to find your Stampede tape review that documented this, but 411mania is kneeing my browser in its 0101011100001s and won’t load for some reason.
Sure. Zodiak is Randy Orton’s fuckup uncle Barry (aka 80s jobber Barry O), banished to Stampede at the tail end of his wrestling career and living out whatever drug-induced fantasies Bruce Hart was experiencing that week. Jason the Terrible was the uber-mega-monster heel set up for the Hart boys to triumph over (journeyman Karl Moffat), although as a kid he scared the SHIT out of me and I was sure he was going to kill Owen Hart and take the North American title with ease. Mr. Hito even wore BOOTS because he was afraid of having his feet stepped on! Sadly, a pretty horrific car accident with Davey Boy Smith ended Moffat’s wrestling career when he shattered his leg, and he was never the same after that.
But yeah, they used to do these trippy promos, on ultra-conservative Stampede TV no less in 1987, and this stuff was WAY ahead of its time. In the end, Jason lost to Owen Hart (or Bruce and Pillman, I forget how they blew it off in the end) and the mysterious Zodiak, who was being built up as a big name in wrestling, was just unmasked and Ed Whalen was like “Oh, it’s Barry O” and that was that. It was a hell of a deal while it lasted, however, one of the most vivid memories I have of the promotion.
Promo of the Day: Ric Flair Flossy
Promo of the Day: WWE- Conversations during matches
Hey, thought this was neato. Love the bits where they respond to the fans.
Dave Batista yelling “I HATE YOU TOO” makes me miss him EVEN MORE. He was truly one of the greatest men who ever lived during his time as a heel champion.
Promo of the Day: Wendi Richter Promo with Gene Okerlund
She’s not about to lie down on her back and let someone else cover her!
Paul Heyman interview on Jim Ross, Punk and the art of the promo
I'd appreciate you sharing it with your readers.
Promo of the Day: stephanie mcmahon 9-11
Geez, she makes one little comment about the US government being the same as terrorists and no one lets her live it down…
Promo of the Day
I actually think I remember seeing this one.
Promo of the Day: WCCW Sunshine Promo (Nov 12 1983)
It sounds like a shoot because IT IS.
Georgia Wrestling: AWESOME Roddy Piper promo
Here is an insane promo from Piper that he cut on Buzz Sawyer while in Georgia Championship Wrestling. The end of this video is something else.
This one raises the question of how Buzz Sawyer managed to do enough drugs to die, but RODDY PIPER is still alive to this die. How much blow was this dude on?
Promo of the Day: Lex Luger vs a NWA Cyberspace T-shirt
This one’s pretty famous.
