You know, I saw a headline very similar to the one I just used on r/SquaredCircle last night and didn’t think much of it. Thought it’d be some goofy vid where Ric Flair’s eyes got all wonky during a promo or something and yeah, whatever. I’ve seen filters before and I’ll see ‘em again.
This morning, I woke up and it had over seven thousand upvotes. Which is a fuck ton. So I watched the video, and I gotta say, it was way funnier than it had any right to be. It also made me yearn for the days of wrestlers cutting promos that made me question whether or not they were about to drop dead of a heart attack. Not in the roided-up inflatable body sense, but just in the sense that every single match seemed like it was life or death, and the most important and difficult challenge _______ had ever faced. Fill in the blank there, because EVERYONE cut promos like that in the late 80s/early 90s. It was fucking awesome. Now we’ve got John Cena (who I love, but c’mon) crying with Kathy Lee and Hoda about Nikki Bella breaking up with him.
Tell somebody you’re gonna hijack their plane and nosedive it into the ground like The Ultimate Warrior or some shit, John. Don’t cry!
