Ben-who?

I'm sorry, but at Wrestlemania XX, Eddie Guerrero celebrated in the ring by himself after Nobody beat Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship.

And what would Kevin Nash know about 'wrestling'?

The big stiff makes Hulk Hogan look like Lou Thesz.

Well, he does know something about destroying a company, since his year with the belt was the year the WWF nearly went bankrupt.

/Backlund should have kept the belt for at least a couple months.

When I first started watching wrestling as a kid, it was at the start of Backlund's run as WWF
champion, so he's the guy I picture in my head when someone says "wrestling champion".

If the Kayfabe: CSI team ever checks the throat of pro wrestling for boot prints, they'll find Nash's
right there with McMahnon's, Hogan's and HHH's.

Nash sounds completely bitter in this piece for some reason, when, from just a personal standpoint, he's one of the most successful wrestlers of all time. Made his money, KEPT his money, kept his family together, relatively healthy.

I'm surprised he bashed Punk and Bryan when Cena is the one lacking a "larger than life" personality.

Because Cena has a "wrestler's body" in his mind, probably. Personality doesn't matter if your BIG MCLARGEHUGE. ...on that note, I miss Mark Henry and the Hall of Pain.

I also enjoy the fact that Nash took credit for creating the Attitude Era, when that didn't happen until he was firmly entrenched in WCW as the NWO.

I mean, he thinks the Glass Break is the integral part of Austin's character? REALLY? I thought Diesel's theme song was horns blowing, not the glass break.

Besides, Diesel's theme was a slow bluesy tune. Austin's is a frenetic crunchy guitar. Right, Nash. You laid the blueprint for that.

It's popularly known as the FINGERPOKE OF DOOM. Thanks to one of the WCW announcers telling the viewing audience that Mick Foley would be winning the WWF Title that night, nearly 1 million viewers IMMEDIATELY switched from Nitro to RAW to see Foley win, and when they returned after RAW went off the air, they were greeted by the FINGERPOKE OF DOOM. Basically, what happened was Kevin Nash won the WCW title from Bill Goldberg thanks to a taser. People hated that. Then, Hulk Hogan reappeared to face Nash for the belt. And, so Hogan could have the belt back with no fuss, he poked Nash, Nash sold like he had been shot, and the deed was done. It is the moment that began the downfall and eventual death of WCW.

Thanks for the responses. I got turned off to wrestling because of the bizarre, convoluted storylines made so little sense it hurt my head. Thanks to Fark, I've heard about other highlights of wrestling, like the Fabulous Moolah giving birth to a disembodied hand (can't remember the father, though) and the spooky magic of the Undertaker, but somehow I had missed out on the Fingerpoke of Doom. I grew up on the AWA in the 70s, so I fondly remember the Road Warriors, and didn't think anything could top those two. Except the Crusher, damn, he was cool for a middle aged, foul tempered, beer drinking palooka.

Mae Young was the one who gave birth to Handbaby.

The father was

Mark Henry.

At least, that's what we were told. But recent evidence leads many to believe that Handteen was not fathered by Mizark.

I used to watch rasslin' religiously from when i was a young kid in 89-90 until around 2002 or so. So, I don't know about the newer guys, but for Kevin Nash to say that Shawn Michaels doesn't have a larger-than-life personally... he must be trolling or something, lol. HBK was my fav, and I think he was one of the best ever.

The writers, most of them former soap opera writers, generally suck.

That was from the 1000th episode of RAW, and came out of nowhere after 13 years. To show you how bad WWE generally is these days, Handteen was the highlight of the night.

Came for the Fingerpoke of Doom and you farkers delivered as usual.

Admission--I saw Magic Mike (majority ruled) and I have to say Kevin Nash was pretty damn good in it. I was the only one in the group that recognized him, though.

It was a great time for wrestling, with the Monday Night Wars, and the NWO being hot, "forcing" Vince to go into the Attitude Era. With the direct competition, Vince's back was to the wall, so there was so much effort put into evolving characters and storyline for the WWF. WCW really didn't do much in the way of just riding the wave until they stumbled upon Goldberg.

But their biggest problem was letting the inmates run the asylum. Nash and Hall were given big contract, roughly equal to Hogan. But every time a big name jumped ship to WCW or a celebrity came in, they held up WCW for a raise. Coupled with their creative control over their characters, and a growing NWO roster, it rapidly went from a booming organization, to one running in the deep red. Then fans got bored, and the old guys didn't want to let any young guys get over sans Goldberg, so it became stagnant. Then the fingerpoke was it for the fans. WCW's ratings steadily declined, to the point where they desperately tried to overhaul Nitro and the main event scene, but by that point, it was too late.

I guess so if you don't need working knees.


Knees can be replaced. Much harder to do that with multiple concussions.

God, I hate pictures like this. Did anyone ever stop and think that the baby was adopted, and it's not "LOL SHE BANGED A BLACK DUDE!"

My cousin and his wife are blonde haired and blue eyed. They've adopted two African-American children and have one biological child. I fear the day that a family portrait ever hits in the internet.

It was a one-time joke during RAW's 1000th episode, and the point was for AJ to prove that she wasn't the only crazy thing in the WWE. The joke, in context, made a ton of sense and it was an excellent callback. I'm just shocked Mae is still alive and looks healthy.

Well, adoption is the logical explanation for the photo. But, it's made the rounds on the internet as a "FAIL" photo for so long that it's generally associated with dumb guy with cheating wife.

What did Kevin Nash ever do in the ring that would have resulted in anything more serious than
a stubbed toe? He sure never took any bumps, even when he was healthy.

God that was so gold. Not just Foley winning the belt, but the fact this was taped and WCW (read: Bischoff) spoiled the results live on Nitro thinking nobody would watch it. Only for everyone to tune in to the last 30 minutes or RAW to watch the magic happen.

In a nutshell, why RAW started owning the Monday Night Wars worse than Nitro did in the early stage.

The lead to the piece was Nash getting two concussions in a night from a table shot. If that's a work, who knows, but he shredded up his knee playing basketball in college, and he's messed up his quads, I think.

Didn't know about the table shot, but I'm sure he no-sold it until he vision started to go blurry.

I will definitely grant you he isn't anywhere near as messed up as many wrestlers out there, but I'd
hardly equate that with being 'healthy'.

I didn't say "healthy". I said RELATIVELY healthy. As in compared to other pro-wrestlers. Like Hogan, who can hardly walk. Scott Hall, who is in a "constant relapse". The financial disaster that is Ric Flair.

It's all relative, and Nash got out with his money and a majority of his health. That's worth something, IMHO, especially compared to other wrestlers. The only reason Nash wrestles now is because he gets a bunch of money for relatively little work because he still sells tickets.
