    This video is the only loosely wrestling related thing I’ve ever been particularly interested in, but I have watched it about a zillion times:

    I don’t have an answer to the question, BUT I had to share that this podcast made me realize that River and Joaquin Phoenix are related. My mind was so blown and I felt like such an idiot that I had to pause the podcast for about 10 minutes. At least to make me feel better, I asked two other people in their mid to late 20s who also didn’t know this.

    This is embarrassing but I have always loved Scotland. The embarrassing part is that I thought that Rowdy Roddy Piper was a real Scotsman. He doesn’t even have an accent! What can I say? I was a kid.

    I have been a pro wrestling fan for just about as long as I can remember–I started really caring about wrestling about the time of Wrestlemania 2, when I was 8 or 9, and have been a fan ever since. The earliest WWF storyline I can recall feeling strongly about was the feud between the Hart Foundation and the British Bulldogs. I remember watching Saturday Night’s Main Event where the main event was a best two out of three falls match for the tag team championship, and being ridiculously angry when the Hart Foundation cheated to win the third fall. I think my dad tried to explain that it was all staged at the time, but I was having none of it…I really was upset about the whole thing.

    Follow up to my previous entry: I posted the comment before listening to the episode and hearing Cole’s admission that the Bulldogs were also among his favorites as a kid. I also loved Jake the Snake and Damian. Also, upon looking further into whether my memory was accurate, I find that I was conflating the Hart Foundation/Bulldog feud, which culminated in their facing off at Wrestlemania III, after the biased referee cost the Bulldogs the title, and a later 2 out of 3 falls match, I think it was the Harts right about the time they turned face and were feuding with Demolition.
