Old School Wrestling

Please understand - the last time I watched wrestling with any regularity, Andre the Giant was on most weeks.

I haven't been mildly curious about wrestling since WCW merged with WWE.

But this TNA on SPIKE is the BOMB! You have GOT to watch this!

Girls! Fights in the parking lot and locker room! Double-crosses! And the heels are all totally old school: they're either foreigners, pretty boys (or girls), or caricatures of "rednecks." That is really old school wrestling stuff. (And yes, I know stereotypes are bad, but it was always part of the wrestling world, at least when I started watching in the 80s). It's amazing!

You lost me at "girls."

True, girls were never part of old school wrestling.

Oh, wait, that's probably not what you meant...

I don't know if you happened to catch Impact on Thursday, but it was something to behold. There was a rather vicious woman's match between Awesome Kong and Roxxi somethingorother, and by match's end Roxxi (who is bald and beautiful, might I add) took a mean chairshot and was bleeding like a stuck pig. But she hung in there, a real trooper that one. Even took a couple of powerbombs and everything. I think you have to admire that kind of commitment.
