    Default Old school characters?!?

    I haven't watched wrestling much since puberty but I've got a few questions. Where is old skool undertaker and will he ever be seen again because whatever he is now is a sorry state. Also has Hulk Hogan left for good and why did they change his theme music from real american? I thought WWE(F) was its best when it had outrageous characters and stupid storylines. Its still got the stupid storylines but not the characters. I mean Brock Lesner, does he even know what a mic is?!?

    So, does anyone else think its gone down hill?!? I want Hulk Hogan, Old Skool Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior, Sgt. Slaughter etc. Maybe I'm just clinging on to the past.....

    Taker will be back soon, he is taking a break. Sgt.Slaughter still does the odd house show and works behind the scene's. Hogan is a washed up old fart who should f@ck off ou tof the wrestling scene as he can barely walk. I do like Ultimate Warrior, I doubt he could handle a modern day match.

    Porthos.. i think you are living in early 90's m8... Are you a fan or just come across the thread and thought i'll add something here cos what you are saying is crap..

    Hogan - good in his day.. like the nature boy living way past sell-by date
    Taker - you must know what the story is as you wouldnt call him old skool otherwise.
    Also back then, matches were shite..30mins of armlocks.. snoozeville so you cannot compare todays wrestling to back then.. two different eras entirely m8..

    Im not a fan, I just saw this part of the thread and wanted to see what was going on. I dont know what's going on with the undertaker but my brother told me he had unlocked him on the latest ps2 game of wrestling so I know he is referred to as that.

    I'm not saying new wrestling is shite or that we should bring back the oldies, their time has past (thats why I think old skool better make a quick come back asap, he can because his fighting style is slow anyway but he better quick) but I'm just saying I don't think the characters are as legendary as they used to be. I spose it takes time to become a legend but I mean Brock Lesner, he's just a brute and it takes a lot more. Where's the managers gone!!

    Btw I do appreciate they are probably much better athletes now than they were before, but if athletes is all you want then you might as well watch a real sport like a grown up.

    lol I look bitter now, I know what the sports for, entertainment. It's like a soap but has more fighting, which is good. I spose its just not the same as the good old days for me personally!

    I wasn't having a pop, I was just kidding...

    M8 I am a huge UFC\Pride and K1 fan, not to mention Rugby League. Wrestling is an escape to some light hearted fun mixed in with some fighting action, one of those things I never grew out of I guess...

    Where can I get some UFC action? I think the idea is awesome and I'm surprised it doesn't get more support. Please don't tell me it's only on Sky Sports cause I aint giving Murdoch a penny to have my arse fiddled by his sports packages.

    They used to show it o $ky Sports on a Thursday night. Now you have to download the TV rips off the net m8. Unfortunately the latest event UFC 46 never appeared!!

    Search Bit Torrent and IRC, there are alwasy TV rip's of show's in there. Haven't seen many UK retailers stocking any events other than the very early ones.

    Sorry to be a party pooper, but none of these mentioned are "old school"

    Big Daddy ("Easy, Easy, Easy!!!")
    and
    Giant Haystacks !

    They are the true old school wrestlers! :-)

    God I feel old................

    I think setanta sport on sky show UFC action now and again..

    I also enjoy pride, UFC.. dont get to watch much though but WWE is a very entertaining program and sorry Porthos if i sounded rude but any fan will tell you the same... No matter how much you try to convince them, if peope arnt interested in the actual talent it takes to do wrestling, they'll always call it fake, a farce, pathetic men in tights..

    BUT when i show them clips of mick foley being thrown off a steel cage onto a table or show some classic sabu/rvd matches in ECW ( which rocked i might add!!) then seem to change their opinion slightly...

    Also have some japenese death match vcd's, now they are ****ing nuts....
    barbed wires, tacks, tanks with pirahna in.. mental!

    Im not interested in it any more but I can see why people are. It's loud in your face sports entertainment and I can see why its enjoyable. I realize it does take a lot of talent, you realize it when you see prats trying to copy in backyard wrestling!
    What's pride btw?!?

    Morph I know what old school your talking about, but lets face it they were fat people with not very much skill, not that I'd say that to their face. The era I'm talking about it when it started to get more skilful and extravagant characters with stupid costumes were the priority!
