Man, Impact has fallen far - they are doing a TV taping today at our local community center. If I didn't have to work, i would definitely check it out for $25, but no dice today

When he first came out, he was an outright killer, WCW ruined him when they had him start talking, and when they turned him heel.

I still remember that the other thing that wrecked him was that WCW was really loose with his undefeated streak, one week he'd be at 50 the next 47 then he'd win like 20 matches over a week when there were only three house shows.

the biggest problem was that Goldberg was incredibly green and not well trained. I still remember the Steven Regal match, when Regal took exception over being told that he should be squashed and made Goldberg look foolish.

On top of that if you read several books by other wrestlers, the problem with Goldberg was that he began to believe his own press. In Jericho's book he talked about the Jericho created feud that Goldberg wanted to kill because as he said, nobody would believe that you could ever beat me.

Now when he made his comeback he was reported to be a much easier person to get along with, and much less of a fan of himself.

Anyways, here's the Regal Goldberg match as its a must watch.





People forget that while he didn't look like it, Regal was legitimately one of the toughest guys in the busy, and had a reputation for not taking crap from anyone.


To illustrate what Regal was doing. I present the Lance Storm vs Tom La Ruffa. Basically Tom showed Lance some disrespect, and Lance taught him a pretty hard lesson starting at 12:42.





Also of note, two of the woman wrestlers, one was Tenille Dashwood and the other was Vaya Valkrye.

Hey, I know KC Spinelli from that Lance Storm show; she was on the last show that I worked.



FYI: My ring announcing was way off that night, not my best work; the audio wasn't good, Pat's mic didn't pick up the sound system that well.

Also, Madison Miles from the above video has a WWE Tryout next weekend at Summerslam, might be seeing her on NXT or NXT Canada soon.

Beautiful Beaa, who is an awesome human being, is Ontario based and happened to be in the area for a few days so she got added to the card.

edit: Just realizing that I didn't give Chantal any love, I'm a big fan. Super friendly, even harder worker, and has a passion for the craft greater than most.

Additionally,

You don't realize how sssslllllooooowwwwwwllllllyyyyyy you need to act things out in the ring.

At one point, I thought I took a minute, took a breath, shook off being flustered (all a work) and then announced the faces... nope on camera it looks like I paused for a second.

If you saw a guy with a red Canada shirt the sequence Gargano threw Cole into the boards with the chair that was me. I was also told I was spotted when Riddle came from the crowd.

My seat was hit and miss. At times I saw things good other than pins but other times the guy in front of me or the camera men blocked my view. Those two times I got up close kind of made up for the bad though.

I got to meet Shinsuke and Corbin today. Both were cool but Corbin was more outgoing which is most likely due to English not being Shinsukeís first language. I got to see how heavy a real title is which was cool.

I would have liked to meet more and may have had I went in smaller lines but Shinsuke was one guy I wanted to meet. I wanted to meet Aleister Black but his line was nuts and I just made Shinsukeís at the last minute. Corbinís was the smallest so I went with his. Some woman lost her #### when I was leaving about not meeting Black and demanded free stuff for missing out.

I thought about going tomorrow but I think Iíll pass. Today took a lot out of me standing in line and tomorrow itís a busy day with a Jays game and then SummerSlam so I think Iíll just try and recover as much as I can in the morning.

Watched it this morning and I loved how they did it

Was basically 3 whole matches, was expecting a quick pin in the normal wrestling match, nope, then after gargano used the chair i thought he would use it a few more times and quick pin but nope

This fued doesnt have the emotion of gargano ciampa, but I'd argue the matches have been better

UE cant get called up soon enough either, I want them as a stable on raw, please dont break them up in nxt

Over/under of the odds Goldberg gives himself a concussion during his way to the ring?

Heh people on another forum were amazed that he made it to the ring without bleeding.


Nattie just looked bad and behind the pace in the first match tonight, I've been saying that for a while that I really like Nattie and respect her and she'll make an excellent trainer, but the division has passed her by.


The Goldberg vs Dolph match was just a squash match for the sake of a squash match. I expect that we'll see Dolph quit once again tomorrow night since he's not really all that interested in wrestling anymore.

My thoughts were "if anyone is built to bump for Goldberg, it's Dolph," and I was not disappointed.

The unintentional laugh of the night though.


When Dolph kept calling Goldberg back to the ring and he got destroyed, and Michael Cole screamed it didn't make sense.


In my mind, I said, yeah, the booking for this doesn't make sense.



But then again you have Goldberg that probably can't work more then 5 minutes and is a legends tourist with no story lines versus Dolph who is at the end of his career, really doesn't care, and would rather be a comedian.


Why have the match at all.


Other then that, pretty solid show. Loved the Bray entrance.

Oh Ziggler was the perfect vehicle for that. I'm not a huge Ziggler fan but he's one of those dudes you can just rely on for whatever program you put him in.

Storm Wrestling Academy to Close Its Doors

Not sure the reason (maybe I missed it), but this might be Lance trying something new or going in a new direction. It was Western Canada's best training facility.

Personally I hope he is going to the Performance Center to help train NXT folks, although they aren't short on coaching talent as it is.

Please dont eff up the fiend

Less needs to be more with him, and just have him dominate physically

Agreed with rube on seth and brock, was a great match, hope that ends the fued

I am guessing brock moves over to SD now, so he's there for fox launch
