The Nature Boy was the Intercontinental Champion at 56!
Honky Tonk Man held that until the Warrior wasted him in the late 80s.
Honky says he suggested a 30 second thrashing because Warrior was dangerous in the ring, so he didn't want to spend any more time than he had to.
Someone mentioned Demolition as still wrestling, One Man Gang (aka Akeem), Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Powers of Pain, Haku, Rikishi, Brutus the Barber Beefcake and Tito Santana also still lace up the boots occasionally.
@Godder check this out at about 1.49. Honky Tonk moves so as it's easier for the Warrior to put on the big splash hahahaha. Gosh wrestling was a great laugh....
One of the best videos to show kids that it's more theatre than fighting.
I've been youtubing a few old classics. Geez Andre was a ( massive ) waste of space towards the end of his career. He could barely walk let alone actually wrestle.
In summary, he is still total mental retardation. He held it together until 5-5- in the 1st set then abruptly starts barking at the fucking moon. Or, in this case, his players box. They exchange petrified glances. WFT did we do? Oh shit, it dawns on them, our meal ticket is about to go off the reservation. Again.
I watched every game of his and almost every set had one of these 'oh god he's going to lose it' moments. And yet... he never did.
He's definitely matured, though obviously still a mental case. The way he hung tough against Dimitrov and won a tight one against Tsonga gives me hope for the future. Those were two games that would have turned out very differently just a year ago.
Andy Murray was criticized for his attitude for years, then he got it. The kid is a bit slow but he has time
Yeah rereading my first post I made my point very poorly. Its the killing of a game after a poor first innings that I was trying to work around, although as he been noted often a poor first innings can just mean that the pitch has more life in it than expected.
@bovidae yeah same as most places, bit daft really, I know the Whangarei Airport is often 6 or 7 degrees lower than in town.
Tuesday last week the 'official' temp was 26, but I was at a Funeral at Toll Stadium and the temp there was 35, my car told me it was 37 (which is usually about 2-3 deg higher than actual)
I expect the idiots that designed our flash bridge used that sort of data and the variance was only to about 25deg and then first summer it was complete, it wouldnt work as the metal expanded too much at 25deg.
