Please get his name right. It's Flex Kavana. The Rock is his heel character

Haha, knew this thread was about him :P. Read about it during the week so tuned in earlier today to watch it ;D.

Finally somebody to bad mouth Cena and actually SWEAR again!!

He never wrestled in the WWE/F under that name.  That was when he was at USWA, his first name in the WWE/F was Rocky Maivia (as a face)

I know that. I just hate Rock as a face so I call his face character Flex Kavana to be a insult

I loved seeing Cena get beat :D. Only if Stone Cold comes back and beats him up as well!!

Haha Marcz :P.

Stone Cold is back as well.  They are bringing back TUF Enough and Stone Cold is the host of that.

What you all got against Cena? :P
Also is The Rock actually coming back as a wrestler or just as the host for Wrestlemania?
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on February 21, 2011, 05:12:13 PM
I'm guessing just as host but who knows.....

Cena is a money maker with his attachment to kids ::). I watched it when it wasn't PG and he's made out like he's invincible most weeks unless somebody cheats ::). I root for the bad guys nowadays :P.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: CrowsFan on February 21, 2011, 05:14:52 PM
Yeah I do like Cena though.
I can't believe they made it PG, since then it has been crap.
I remember a few years ago when Mick Foley came back and him and Edge were fighting over who was more hardcore. They had some amazing fights then, which they wouldn't be able to do now since it is PG, such as spearing the other through a burning table!
Also what is with Randy Orton being good now? He was much better as a bad guy!
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on February 21, 2011, 06:03:04 PM
I loved the Hard Core matches. Too bad we don't see many of them anymore.

I thought he was a good bad guy. But think they were running out of good guys so moved him to a bad guy playing a good guy who has no good or bad guys as friends/enemies.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: BratPack on February 21, 2011, 06:04:57 PM
Please get Cena's name correct. He is "The Last Son of Krypton" :P

 ::) bahaha nice BP uve done some homework...

the list sucks now the miz somebody wtf :o

there r plenty of golden times but my favourite times would be around the the time of The Stone Cold Heel and The Alliance when WCW and ECW went bankrupt and the McMahons cleaned up all the stars :P

Stone Cold and Booker T in the supermarket is an alltime fave

(http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSxYxX-rvPkh19tdQcDtDJiwUQzavwH4zI8CIwcMmb2jba82Xwo)

How can you go past The Rock v Stone Cold at Wrestlemania 17 and 19. 
DX waging war on WCW was awesome.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on February 22, 2011, 05:11:10 PM
Stone Cold with the Milk Truck FTW ;D.

I remember watching that match Marcz!! Use to love the Hardy's back then (when they weren't on drugs or an arrogant prick).

An addiction Marcz? :o. I think you were a little too into Wrestling.... I mean Sports Entertainment ::). Can't believe they can't say they are wrestlers but "Entertainers". What has this PG rating done to our beloved golden days of wrestling :'(.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: RiOtChEsS on February 22, 2011, 11:21:20 PM
yeah destroyed it :'( it all started to go pear shaped when Eddie and Benoit passed Lesnar and Goldberg bailed Austin couldnt wrestle anymore due to back and neck issues Angle and Dudleys went to TNA Jeff Hardy vanished... it was a Tuesday night drinks show for me and my mates and it hadnt really taken off in Australia as Fox actually dumped it for awhile then it all sparked up again with the PG ratings and they came to Oz... went to the entertainment centre and watched Eddie Guerrero the first time they came out and it was awesome had front row tickets ;D

The whole 2000 of WWF was the GOAT year for wrestling. 2003 is pretty close, but 2000 was the best.

It was half a joke, half an attack on the show. It didn't feel like Wrestlemania, it felt like a 4 hour episode of Raw.

Let's see other results

Edge beat Alberto Del Rio to retain the World Heavyweight Title
Cody Rhodes beat Rey Mysterio
Kofi Kingston, Santino, Kane and the Big Show beat the Corre in a match that was about 45 seconds long
Randy Orton beat CM Punk
Michael Cole beat Jerry "The King" Lawler by Dusty Finish DQ
Undertaker beat HHH with Hell's Gate
John Morrison, Trish Stratus and Snooki beat Dolph Ziggler and Laycool

Did you pay for it BP?

Fortunately no :P And I wouldn't say it sucked, it had some good matches but it just didn't feel like Wrestlemania. Yeah the US match was dropped, made a lumberjack match for the pre-show/DVD extra match, which turned into the usual "Let's give everyone a Wtestlemania payoff" Battle Royal which The Great Khali won

It's a sad day when an old wrestler retires.

EDGE has retired due to injury :'(. Gotta miss him and those old ladder and tag team matches.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: CrowsFan on April 12, 2011, 10:05:04 PM
Wow Edge has retired? Do you know what the injury was?
Yeah he was one of the more entertaining wrestlers, the hardcore matches with Mick Foley were awesome :D
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on April 12, 2011, 10:06:53 PM
Spinal injury. He had surgery a few years back but hurt himself last week when Spearing Clay or during his WM match. Had X-Ray and is said to be unable to wrestle again.

I'll see if I can find the link.

wow really :o similar to Stone Cold Steve Austin im guessing neck/back related is usually their downfall...

Post by: Justin Bieber on April 12, 2011, 10:12:20 PM
Less than a week after his successful title defense against Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania XXVII, World Heavyweight Champion Edge has been forced to retire from in-ring competition due to injury. The unexpected news brings to an end a storied WWE career spanning 13 years and consisting of 11 World Title reigns.

The Rated-R Superstar had been suffering numbness and uncontrollable trembling in his arms and hands. This is not the first time Edge has experienced these symptoms of nueropraxia. An MRI in Atlanta last Monday was sent to Dr. Joseph Maroon, a renowned neurosurgeon and professor of neurosurgery at The Pittsburgh School of Medicine. After careful examination of the MRI, it was determined that Edge would never be cleared to compete again, and thus, he is forced to retire.

In 2003, Edge underwent a two level spinal fusion of the discs between his C5, C6 and C7 vertebrae. After being cleared to compete, The Rated-R Superstar returned to the ring, resulting in stenosis of the spine, or a narrowing of the spinal column, above and below the fused discs. This narrowing resulted in less and less of the vital fluid needed to protect the spinal cord. Medical professionals cannot clear Edge to compete ever again in WWE since doing so could result in paralysis or even death.

There is the statement by WWE. Sad really :'(. Neck and Spine related is right. Might stay with WWE but doubt he'd be doing any wrestling anymore.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: CrowsFan on April 12, 2011, 10:16:02 PM
Wow always sad when they have their careers cut short due to injury :(
I really liked Edge as a wrestler whether he was the heel or face.

Speaking of Stone Cold I was watching Tough Enough today, where he is the host. Pretty entertaining. The trainers are Booker T, Trish Stratus and Bill DeMott
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on April 12, 2011, 10:18:38 PM
I watched it on Saturday. Quite funny in parts. Looks alright.

It is sad. He said he could of had another 2 years but felt he could go for another 5. Really sad especially as it means 1 less from when they actually wrestled.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: RiOtChEsS on April 12, 2011, 10:34:16 PM
wow thats sad news :( cheers for the write up Hp ;) like pretty much all the wrestlers from back in the day/golden era have alot of biographies on them and once u see them as actual ppl not just characters u really connect with them and feel part of the ride...
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Justin Bieber on April 12, 2011, 10:57:09 PM
I haven't read any autobio's for any wrestlers :(. But many of them are just the personal on screen, could be completely different in person. They are actors afterall.

Hopefully he stays on to announce or something. So sudden.
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: CrowsFan on April 12, 2011, 10:58:45 PM
I reckon he will stick around and either help out back stage or be a commentator.
Would be so hard to move into a different profession after wrestling!
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: RiOtChEsS on April 13, 2011, 08:16:01 AM
he may hava holiday now but they will re introduce him somewhere along the line, like stone cold he usually referees a match and stuns someone but doesnt get slammed due to his multiple neck and back fractures...

highly reccomend them HP The Rock Mick Foley Steve Williams(SCSA) Mark Callaway(Undertaker) the Hardy Boys and im looking forward to Brock Lesnars new book too... one of the best bio's ive ever read was Denis Rodman's man he is a wild child ;)

My Appetite of Destruction - Steve Adler
Scar Tissue - Anthony Kiedis (the first half of this book is incredible)
Iceman: My Fighting Life - Chuck Lidell

Post by: BratPack on April 13, 2011, 11:02:22 AM
Word of advice. Don't pay more than $10 for Rock's. It's pretty lame. Foley's are gold, Jericho's is a great one and Edge's isn't bad
Title: Re: Can you smell.....
Post by: Maca24 on April 13, 2011, 12:22:33 PM
Edge was a star, what a successful career so many title matches...
Feel sorry for him as you would think he will have pain in his nerves for life?
WWE is screwed even more without him haha. Last event I watched was WM25?

Yeh I just heard about Edge - I am devastated as he "was" my favorite wrestler.  I normally watch RAW and Smackdown on Sat/Sun as I work and don't get home in time Wed/Frid.  I just saw it on a friends facebook post.

Just noticed this thread now. Used to watch wrestling, not anymore though - It's just not the same. The days of WWF were the best for me. Rock, Stone Cold, Jeff Hardy were actually not that bad. Today is just so commercial and for kids... Plus when Cena fights it's like 2 Ironmans and Batman taking on a 3 year old in a wheel chair...
