And I am a nerd who reads books and plays instruments.

The meatheads are in the audience of those stupid staged choreographed wrestling events. The wrestlers or rather, actors, in those shows are usually retired from real wrestling competition. Actual fighting is in their past.

I know this very well having my own full contact history.

I mean pro-wrestling, all the fake shit.
Actually wrestling, like Olympic wrestling, and martial arts I respect.

My life is all I have mate. You've seen photos of my nose, right? Big Grin Broken 9 times.

Yes, I am aware you like show wrestling too. So sorry if I hurt any feelings or anything.

That I did these things is history. At least I did them.

That guy in the air is a young me. Already a black belt in several styles aged around 19. I studied 32 styles in all. Qualified in 17 and am a certified master of two. It is just my own history.

And the reason I fought was to earn money to support my dying mother. On other nights I was either a bouncer at a rough pub or doing a gig.

Nowadays I cannot do this. Too sick, too many injuries. From martial arts as well as other things.

Have you wrestled? Done any martial arts? Have any knowledge about this subject at all? I am actually curious to know. Not being a smartarse.

You rather missed my point, it is not just about this it has been a pattern with you lately. When did you become the No Fun Police? First throwing a fit that people were discussing the #1 movie in the world in the movie thread and now just shitting all over Even's post for no reason (he already said he is on hiatus so he's not gonna see this stuff for 4-5 months if at all) just so you can flash you "I'm more civilised than all of you cretins" so lighten up and enjoy a show for a change.

Oh and those Britcoms you like are fake they don't make the dialogue up on the spot and everything is preplanned. That is exactly what people who like to point out the WWE and other pro wrestling is scripted sound like, yeah no shit I'm not watching it for that and frankly it being scripted makes it far more interesting from a cerebral level as most of what you can debate is not the onscreen work but the backstage booking and politics and why certain things work with the crowd and others fail.

As for you being into bloodsport as a youth, that's nice I took Karate as well means nothing and is not really germane (that means relevant) to the situation.

"I could not find a job until I began working as a wrestling referee part time."
Greg "Pappy" Boyington. WWII Marine fighter ace, Medal of honor recipient.

In his book, Baa baa black sheep, Boyington discussed at length how the wrestlers used to talk to each other while staging these fights and how they would laugh at the crowds later in the dressing rooms. Sadly I have the book, but cannot seem to find it to quote it directly.

If interested you can buy it here.

You seem to think this is news. Kayfabe was broken publicly like 15 years ago by Vince McMahon on national television. The bookers are on twitter. Nobody outside of 8 year olds think it is real so not sure what you are banging on about.

Of course it's relevant. You are speaking now with a master martial artist regarding martial arts. Wrestling is a martial art.

What karate did you do? What rank did you achieve?

I did both shotokan and kyokushin. I know the shotokan syllabus up to 3rd dan but never graded as the club refused to take my money. I remain a shotokan white belt. I think I studied and taught it for 7 years. This was in the same dojo where I lived. All kinds of martial arts were taught there. It's where I also studied ju jiutsu. Big Grin

They hated the fact I was a 4th dan in tae kwan do and a 2nd dan in tang soo do. Smile
It was an all Japanese dojo. Not a Korean dojang.

4th dan is the highest one can grade in TKD. All other grades are given for service to TKD. So at 4th dan one is considered a master. The other style I mastered is Xing Yi Quan. A Chinese martial art. I also studied weapons such as long handle broadsword, three section staff, spear, staff, double hooks etc. I possess early photos of myself using them. Smile

Sadly I do not have a scanner.

Then why are you seemingly so upset? I don't understand.

Me too. Except it's not at all attractive.


That describes the over-whelming majority of porn. The business is still booming though. Smile

Banjo, this thread is about entertainment, not martial arts. Wrestlemania is entertainment, nothing more. That's what revs is getting at. You're derailing this thread with your accomplishments because of your dislike of professional wrestling because it's not "real".

Everyone knows that, it's entertainment. That's all it's about. If that bothers you, don't engage. Let those who want to talk about it do so.

Peace brother.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Oh I see. Sorry.

Was only using my titles as a form of back up. Did not mean to derail the thread.
