This promo just could as easily say “Fartknocker Jordan” across the bottom and the gimmick would be the exact same. If I saw swimming trunks with those patterns on them, I’d think they were too douchey to wear, but this dude wrestled in them. Kudos!
Interpromotional Champion Vs. Champion Match: WWE United States Champion Daniel Bryan Vs. Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler
WWE Bragging Rights - October 24th, 2010
It’s easy to look at these two superstars and say that they were “up and comers” at this period in their career, but both men were seasoned veterans by this point in their careers. Ziggler was a former WWE World Tag Team Champion and had proven himself as a top contender in the WWE for the few years prior. Bryan, on the other hand, is a name that speaks for itself, having been a worldwide performer and a Ring Of Honor Heavyweight Champion.
However, both of these men had something to prove to the WWE, that they were every bit as good as they said they were. Both men would go on to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion within the next 18 months, but in this match, they went out to show the WWE brass that they were as immensely talented as the fans already knew that they were. Extremely good match, especially for the mid-card it was presented on.
Your theme doesn’t allow for asks. I suggest modifying the code so the Ask box actually shows when you click the link.
I’ve been trying to modify this dumbass code for months and it’s not working worth a shiz. I don’t know what to do. Advice?
Also, what about The Giant Vs. The Great Muta?
Shitloadsofwrestling is the place to be! Or in gif form on Doomsday519 haha.
This is actually really rad to see. Trust me, I’d be down with posting any matches you have!
Randy Orton vs. The Rhodes Family
Jesus, Orton, I know you’re the legend killer but this annihilation of the family is pretty damn legendary.
Chris Jericho vs. Hardcore Holly vs. Val Venis

WWE Championship: Stone Cold Steve Austin Vs. Kurt Angle
WWE Unforgiven - September 23rd, 2001
This match was huge for the WWE. Not just for the fact that the WWE/Invasion storyline was hot at the time, but also for the cultural significance. The USA had just suffered a terrorist attack in New York City and was clinging to any symbol of American pride. When the WWE answered by hosting SmackDown 2 days after the attack, the United States’ spirit was lifted, and this match did even more so by pitting the United States Olympic Hero against the leader of the Alliance, which had invaded the WWE. Not to mention, it’s a great match from start to finish. Kudos on both men for proudly representing the company and the business, and doing what was best for the morale of the entire country.

Vince McMahon addresses the United States Of America after the 9/11 Attacks
WWE SmackDown - September 13th, 2001
Nothing really made sense to me on September 11th, 2001. The attacks, the purpose, the overall tragedy, it all just seemed surreal. It wasn’t until I watched SmackDown that I began to understand just how significant that moment in time was, and how fortunate I am to be alive and to live in the country that I live in.
The words of Vince McMahon ring true to this day, and the showing of the WWE superstars, whether they were Federation or Alliance, really made me proud to not just be a wrestling fan, but an American. This rendition of the Star Spangled Banner is my favorite, as sung by Lilian Garcia No one has ever made me stop and pay attention to the song like Lilian has, and I’ve enjoyed it at every event since with a proud smile on my face. I’m not saying that the USA is perfect by any means, but I’m an extremely proud American. Let’s all thrust our foam fingers in the air and chant in unison: USA! USA! USA!

Mascara Vs. Mascara: Rayo De Jalisco Jr. Vs. Steel
LLDM - June 8th, 1998
If you’re a fan of lucha libre, then you’re undoubtedly heard the name of Rayo De Jalisco Jr. Rayo is a legend in Mexico, similar to our Steve Austin and John Cena. His biggest feud in the late 90’s was with a wrestler named Steel, who was actually pulling double duty at the time, working in LLDM and in the WWE as Val Venis. This is the match where Steel bid farewell to the Mexico promotion so he could work full-time in the WWE.
The Tragic Story of Mr. Black
Ohio Valley Wrestling is known for a strew of characters who have come and gone from the company during its existence. Some have arrived simply to give wrestling a try. Some were sent to OVW for further training to become WWE or TNA superstars. Some, however, worked with the company to become strong professional wrestlers and be the best that they can be so that one day, they could perform under the bright lights in the WWE.
One particular superstar who was part of that last group was Mr. Black, also known as Jack Black. A massive individual, Mr. Black was appointed the head of security for Bolin Services, which meant that he watched Kenny Bolin’s back and also would get involved in matches featuring Bolin Services superstars, eventually competing alongside said superstars. It wasn’t infrequent for Mr. Black to team with Rico Constantino or John Cena, as the team were a featured act every Saturday on OVW television.
When the WWE did an evaluation of all of their contracted talent, Mr. Black came up and they had a conversation with him about bringing him on the road and putting him on TV. Of course, it was every OVW superstar’s dream to be part of the big dance, so Mr. Black was willing to do whatever it took. What it took, though, was for Mr. Black to drop 10 pounds a month until he had reached their goal weight they set for him. A hard worker and a committed superstar, Mr. Black adhered to these rules and began dropping weight. For months, he met his 10 pound goal and started to decrease in weight until one month, his weigh in report came back and he had only lost 8 pounds. The WWE “sadly” released him from his contract, despite the fact that he had dropped nearly 50 pounds. Mr. Black was written off of television by losing a “loser leaves OVW” match and wouldn’t reemerge full-time in OVW for nearly 10 years. He only just recently retired from in-ring competition, and is currently in the best shape he’s been in since before he joined OVW.
