    I think they have been separated for years now. They are like the Clintons... married on paper only.

      Holy crap. Can't say I'm surprised. And yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if they've been separated for a while and the announcement is just coming out now. I remember hearing about an interview Vince McMahon did for Playboy where he mentioned cheating on Linda on several occasions where she found out and they later reconciled. I guess money and power is a hell of an aphrodisiac.

        I think Wardlow is going win the TNT title soon. I like Scorpio Sky, but if Wardlow doesn't beat him for the TNT title that would just kill his momentum.

        I know you said you prefer physical media, but I know a good stream site if you don't want to wait for the DVD. The site has all the wrestling shows uploaded on there. It even streams the shows and PPV live if you wanna watch before you get the discs. It even has UFC and boxing, New Japan, ROH, etc.

        Right here:

        I actually remember before that when Flair had that great trilogy with Steamboat. Meltzer actually gave all their matches 5 stars. I only thought their first 2 were worth 5 and the last one about 4 and a half. Their 2 out of 3 falls at Clash of the Champions 6 is still the best match ever IMO. Better than Steamboat's match with Savage 2 years before that. And I remember in 1989 right after that match at Wrestle War 89 when Terry Funk was one of the judges and attacked Flair afterwards, turning him face for the first time in about 5-6 years. Flair does a bunch of promos at home and then in TBS studios teasing his return to defend the title against Funk at Great American Bash that year. Funk comes in with Gary Hart as his manager. Flair defends the title against Funk and later starts a faction with Great Muta, Buzz Sawyer and The Dragonmaster called J-Tex. I remember Funk even doing an interview show at the time to promote his feud with Flair called Funk's Grill lol.

        So to even the odds, Flair calls in Ole Anderson, Arn Anderson and Sting to reform the Four Horsemen. Looks like the original plan was to bring in Tully Blanchard, but his failed drug test in the WWF made Jim Herd reluctant to pull the trigger on bringing him back in at the time.

        The crazy thing about the Horsemen turning on Sting was not only was it because Sting was the #1 contender for the World Title, but it was the night they were taking on the J-Tex guys in a six man tag at Clash of the Champions 10, so it caused kind of a double turn. Since the Horsemen guys just turned heel on Sting, the fans started kind of cheering the J-Tex/Gary Hart International team of The Dragonmaster, Buzz Sawyer and The Great Muta. Too bad Muta went right back to New Japan after that. They really had something with him. He was doing some Jeff Hardy/Young Bucks stuff back in 1989 in the US. Could've made some good money with him with a good push.

        • Vince "steps back" as CEO and chairman of WWE until the investigation is resolved. He will still oversee creative control while Stephanie steps in for the "interim".

          She was stepping back herself so I'm guessing she wanted to distance herself but now is obligated to take the reigns. But basically Vince will still be in charge just Stephanie will be his mouth piece I guess.

            I was so young during the Flair vs. Steamboat feud, but somehow I remember those matches and I remember how crazy it was to see Terry Funk attack Flair afterwards, as a kid thinking it was real lol.

            Then Funk piledrived Flair on the table. That was the first table spot I ever seen at the time, even though the table didn't break but it actually looked more devastating somehow.

            Great Muta was ahead of his time though. He was one of the first "cool" heels of the 80s (like Flair and the Road Warriors) who get cheers from the crowd because he was doing those high flying moves like the moonsault when hardly anyone was doing it back then. He also had that bad ass kabuki style face paint.

            Muta would have thrived in the 00s in the U.S., and he would be an even bigger star in today's era. He made the green mist popular too. Asuka uses it now as a tribute to him, and Tajiri used it before as well. Jericho was doing it also when he was in New Japan, and Malakai has the black mist now.

              Yeah the mist is kind of cool. I always wondered how Muta could spit out different colored mists sometimes during the same match. That was always so cool to me. When watching some old Rock n Roll Express matches I saw an even earlier table spot where Ricky Morton got piledriven through a wooden table by Randy Savage when they were facing Savage and his brother Lanny Poffo in their dad Angelo Poffo's territory. Got them major heel heat for injuring RnR Express. Was early 80s. And some fool was trying to claim on another forum that Diesel was the first heel getting cheered. Some young people just need to be schooled.

                    Crazy how RnR Express are still wrestling, even if it's just part time. I think the Bushwhackers are still wrestling too.

                    I remember that lame heel turn from Ricky, when he changed his name to Richard Morton and joined that weird corporation stable led by Alexandra York (Marlena, Goldust's ex-wife).

                    WCW had some pretty outlandish ideas that were just as bad some of WWF's angles.

                      He's in the middle of a serious scandal, and he's still trying use this to pop a rating for Smackdown.

                      Typical Vince lmao.
