The Limosine riding, leer jet flying, wheeling dealing, kiss stealing son of a gun, the Nature Boy Ric Flair! Whooooo!

OK, just had to contribute something. I watched WWF in phases, age 5-15 then 20-25. haven't paid much attention since it became wwe. I will say I did meet Mick Foley about 2 years ago in the airport in Atlanta. He was wearing sweat pants and a black t shirt and beat up tennis shoes... pretty much in character or just how he likes to roll.

perlick, if you want to see RVD's best work (IMO), find his 3 matches vs Jerry Lynn from ECW. You need look no further than those 3 to see the 'story' Dodger keeps referring to, that he likes to see in-ring work tell in matches. Also check out some of Chris Jericho's old ECW stuff, or Taz back when 'The Franchise' Shane Douglas and Bam Bam Bigelow were going crazy there.

And, just for fun, here's a few things I markthefout for:

- Hearing the glass break to start 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin's theme music
- The Rock as a heel
- Dudleyz vs. Edge/Christian vs. Hardy Boyz TLC Matches
- Shawn Michaels superkicking Marty Jannetty through the Barbershop Window
- Shawn Michaels' white Intercontinental Title
- The Impact Players (Justin Credible and Lance Storm)
- Every time HBK accidentally superkicked Diesel
- 'OH MY GOD!' - Joey Styles

I haven't watched wrestling in about 4 years, but I've watched RAW the last 2 weeks, and IMO, it's ehh. The matches are worse than ever, and to top it all off, there's no big personality that I actually care for, e.g. HBK, The Rock, SCSA, Steroid Triple H ... Edge can't carry things, nor can Cena, nor can Orton ... nor can guys like HBK, Triple H, etc. anymore. They need to figure something out -- Cena seems to be their best guy on the mic, but his whole ghetto image thing stinks, IMO, and could possibly benefit huge from a massive heel turn like The Rock when he became The Corporate Champion...

I think this wrestling talk just made me go cross-eyed. 8-o

Don't know the entire quote word for word, but it goes something like "I'm a limousine drivin', Learjet flyin', wheelin', dealin' son of a gun who kissed all the girls...WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"

Ding, ding, ding. I would check out Living Dangerously '99, Hardcore Heaven '99, and Hardcore Heaven '00. Those are RVD and Jerry Lynn's best matches, perlick. The one on the last ever ECW PPV, Guilty as Charged 2001, isn't half-bad, but not as tremendous as those matches I've listed.

I would also add RVD doing the Van Terminator as a mark out moment or when Tommy Dreamer handcuffed Raven to the steel cage and blew his brains out with a sick looking chairshot. OH MY GOD!!!

I've always liked Stone Cold's entrance theme. I always thought the Attitude Era had the best entrance theme songs because they perfectly matched the characters of the wrestlers (i.e. Rock, HHH, DX, New Age Outlaws, and Taker to name a few).

Rock was brilliant as a heel. I remember when the fans would chime in on his predictable catchphrases and he'd halt them short and say something like, "This isn't sing-along time with The Rock!"

The TLC matches ruled. The Tag Team division actually meant something back then and that's an area WWE really needs to develop. But then again, there was always something special with the Dudleys and E&C.

I liked HBK (never liked him) when he was a heel mid-carder who broke away from The Rockers. Yes, I remember that Brutus Beefcake's Barbershop segment where HBK superkicked Jannetty too.

Ultimate Warrior's yellow IC belt was cooler. B-)

I was more of a fan of RVD/Sabu than the Impact Players, naturally. I just remembered 3 Count from the late WCW days when I wrote this. :-b

Yes, the quality of the WWE product has declined for the last, oh, 4 years. The last great PPV was Wrestlemania 17, five years ago, and that sort of signaled the very peak of WWE there. Of course, when Vince bought out WCW and ECW and after the Invasion angle, WWE has lost steam.

Like I said before, WWE is in a transitional stage. True, it lacks a larger-than-life superstar like Rock or Stone Cold, but then again, they are icons for one generation of the product, much like Hulk Hogan was the top draw in the 80's. You can't expect John Cena or Edge to carry the mantle like Rock or Austin because they pale in comparison to Rock and Austin and the fans know that. I think the WWE product has become too formulaic as a result. This whole DX vs. McMahon angle is just some sort of rehash of Austin vs. McMahon and such a storyline is quite cliche with McMahon being the Machiavellian head honcho and HHH/HBK as rebellious figures (more like obnoxious 13 year olds). Likewise, the bookers can't book Cena vs. Edge the same way as Austin vs. Rock which was a unique storyline/feud like Austin vs. McMahon.

BTW, I don't reckon Cena will turn heel, with his new movie, "The Marine" coming out this Fall, which is of course produced by WWE Films, who likewise produced Kane's "See No Evil". Let the Cena flick hype machine begin. :-[
