and first, then, an apology for all of you who are reading this and expect it to be about some filipino dude and some black dude having a bout of fisticuffs at the weekend. it looks all splendid and magnificent, but as i do not have the equipment or the coins of money to throw at watching it, i guess i will just be - with some interest - catching the result the next day and the highlights at some point, look you see.
no, this post is in homage to the real king of the ring. James has, of late, taken a shine to all that WWF or WWE stuff, whatever they call it now. as a consequence i have had to purchase some of those card collection things for him.
have a gander at who he got in a packet today.
yes, the class that is the Honkytonk Man, or if you like the Honky Tonk Man. which is the correct way to write it? who cares, he is class either way.
one of the first ever WWF / WWE things i saw, i guess it would have been a Wrestlemania thing back in the late 80s, featured him standing in the ring shouting into a microphone "gimme someone to wrestle here, i don't care who it is". not long after, someone called Ultimate Warrior stormed into the ring and absolutely battered him in a matter of seconds. it was, and remains, one of the funniest things i have ever seen.
anyway, i will leave you to admire this card, and ponder on the stats he is awarded; stats that for me belie his sheer entertainment value.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
