Welcome to Four on Four with WRESTLERS! 4 wrestlers, 4 questions, 4 answers, 4x the fun. We have a great group of wrestlers you’ve seen all over the wrestling world this week. Let’s meet the panel:
1. Growing up, which wrestler did you love most?
When I first started watching wrestling, I was into Sting but as time passed on, I became a huge Triple H fan. I got into tons of debates because of it. I was also a Val Venis fan at some point too. (Don’t ask!)
When I first started watching, I gravitated towards Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Cactus Jack and The Rock. But I fell in love with indepedent wrestling because of greats like Brian Kendrick, Bryan Danielson, Terry Funk and Johnny Saint.
I started late! The Smackdown before Royal Rumble 2000. First wrestler I saw was Viscera. I loved him. I still do. He was such a mind blowing human. I couldn’t believe he was real and not scifi movie make up.
Chris Jericho too. When he beat HHH for the title, it was the best day in my life to that point. Getting stripped of it instantly made it the worst. I threw my homework everywhere and got in trouble.
I loved the Ultimate Warrior as a kid. He looked like a cartoon character brought to real life. So as a kid, to me, he was absolutely the coolest thing going in wrestling.
2. Growing up, which wrestler did you hate most?
I was not too hip on Hulk Hogan. Hogan always came off as corny and cheesy to me. Whenever he would show real emotion during one of his big promos, I would laugh out loud.
I would say Albert. I don’t even know why. Maybe I was just jealous of him being managed by Trish Stratus? I don’t know. There were definitely guys that deserved my hatred way more but it was Albert.
Early on, I hated The Rock despite him being the top good guy at that time! He was to me like what Cena currently is to smarty pants internet guys. I hated how he always won and always seemed to beat guys I really liked. Why was Rock hosting SNL and not Crash Holly? (Legit thing I said in March 2000!) Eventually, I grew to realize that Rock was the man and ruled but I was just a confused young man.
Ludvig Borga when he defeated Tatanka to end Tatanka’s undefeated streak. I automatically hated him after that moment. I also didn’t like Ted Dibiase as a kid which is funny because as I got older, I grew to love watching his work.
3. Aside from yourself, who has the best hair in wrestling?
Brother, my hair doesn’t even get that long for me to even answer this question! But, the best hair in wrestling today belongs to Big E Langston. He’s got like a baby Mr. T mohawk and kinda looks like a buff, black version of Aang from the cartoon “Avatar: The Last Airbender.”
I would say Dasher Hatfield. It somehow doesn’t get messed up while he’s wrestling. I have no clue how that is even possible but it’s true!
Well, my hair sucks right now but I truly believe at certain points, my luscious locks were the best in the biz. It was like ombré silk woven by the gods.
Anyways, Peter Avalon used to have great hair. His name was “Pretty Hair” before it was just “Pretty” Peter Avalon. Sheamus has sweet hair always. And currently, Enzo Amore in NXT!
I would probably go with Zema Ion. The guy has great hair.
4. What are the worst movies you have paid to see?
- Scary Movie 4
- Drag Me to Hell
- Mortal Kombat 2
Would I watch these movies again? No! I’d rather watch two hippos make love!
- Troll 2
- Ready 2 Rumble
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3
To be fair, I would re-watch any of these movies.
- What Women Want (Went on a date in the 7th grade and was furious because I was missing WWF Metal. As soon as it got out, I ditched the girl and called home to see if TAKA won.)
- Crossroads (I and my first girlfriend took her little sister to see it. I love Britney Spears, but that was rotten.)
- Goldmember (It’s not that it’s a bad move, though the worst of the three, but it’s that I saw it TEN TIMES. I don’t know why but I paid TEN TIMES. I didn’t even Stars Wars movies that many times in theaters and that is my version of church!)
- Dead Silence
- The Silent House
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
The last Indiana Jones was pretty terrible.
