    Since that makes too much sense, that means it'll never happen.

    OK wrestling historians, who was the top ten best masked wrestlers of all time? This isn't face paint wrestlers they wore mask. I think this youtube got some but more out there.

    The Spoiler big man walked the type rope

    Someone hasn't been watching the original Wrestling from the Chase and failed to mention the great Dick Murdoch wrestling as the Invader that was unmasked by no other than Bruno Sammartino. In one match against the great Johnny Valentine, the Invader was in trouble and JV ripped off his mask, only to discover the Invader was wearing 2 mask.As JV proceeded to rip off the second mask, Harley Race interfered and saved the Invader from being unmasked completely.

    Not mentioning Dick Murdoch as the invader is a great injustice and tells me whoever made this list doesn't know the original real wrestling or its origins.

    MM should have been 1 or 2 IMO.

    Other honorable mention is The Blue Blazer (Owen Hart) another great injustice to be left out who died in the ring during a stunt gone wrong.

    Ray Mysterio although good and deserves a top 10, wrestling had turned into a soap opera at this time and lost a lot of its greatness.

    I worked next to Bob Backlund at the Big E in Mass. He asked me to watch his money bag when he had to go out to the business office or bathroom. I wasn't going to steal it and watched it like a hawk. He was charging $20 to have photos taken with him. I worked at the CT DEP Boating exhibit next to him and we got to be friends. I asked him if he worked with Johnny Valentine as he was my fav of all time; and Bob said no but understood JV was a master . But he told me he worked with Greg (JV's brother).

    On my last day, I shook Bob's hand and told him it was an honor working next to him and he said "No, It was my honor working next to you" That made me feel quite special.

    Anyone watch SD last night? Check out the scene with Bayley, Charlotte, and Sasha. I thought Charlotte stirred the pot quite nicely in starting dissension between Bayley and Sasha.

    Sorry but that list was awful.

    No mention of the Spoiler, really?
    The Assassin{Jody Hamilton}also was deserving high up on the list as well.

    Some of the wildest matches I have seen in person involved the Assassin. One time as he was leaving a match a dude in the audience punched him in the back. Hamilton turned and swung blindly knocking a lady completely on her keister.
    Also saw him and Scandor Akbar get ran out of the back of the OKC Fairgrounds area with a very angry crowd in chase, they got in a old junker as people were throwing whatever they could get their hands on :laugh::laugh:This after a very controversial match against Bill Watts. The Assassin was also decent on the mic, but not the best. That award goes to Ernie Ladd.

    There was no purpose. Just a glaring example of Vince McMahon's ignorance. There been a lot of that unfortunately.

    Other than that segment, I thought the show was pretty decent.

    OK let's admit it. The last couple of WWE pay per view have been bad . NO CROWD AND VINCE McMAHON AND HIS SLAPSTICK. Ok maybe this will make up for it. I didnt create it,but it is entertaining .

    French Angel was the inspiration for "Shrek. TRUE FACT. He had a similar disease like Andre for Gigantism but it only affected his head and his hands.

    I think the Redskins actually did give Andre a tryout.
