Rwa2play: Annnnnd, right to number three letting you know that no, he wasn't:Mean Gene interviews Doctor D in the AWA. Watch Gene completely lose it to the point that the camera has to go right to the Doctor.

greggm59: When I was growing up, Bob Luce wrestling was on in Chicago Sunday mornings on either channel 26 or 44. Baron Von Raschke had a claw hold with its "vice-like grip", as announcer Sam Menacker described it, on Dick the Bruiser during a match, when after a few minutes, DB pried the claw off his face and applied it on the Baron, who proceeded to roll around the ring, kicking his own ass. It was hilarious! It was at that point that the 12-year old me figured out that this stuff was all a work.
Flappyhead: Hell Doc didn't even miss a beat either, dude was fully in the zone. On the Warrior bit, I found this little gem relating to that DVD. It's either a hilarious satire or the greatest mark article ever written.Link
vermicious k'nid: The funniest thing I ever saw was in the WWF back in the Golden Years. I was probably about 10-12 yrs old.Mean Gene was doing one of his interview segments that they would show in-between matches. Greg "The Hammer" Valentine was set to fight wrestler-who-I-forget and Captain Lou Albano was managing him at the time. Keep in mind that at this time it was "still real to me" and my father would just laugh and tell me "You know it's fake, right?". Naturally, I didn't agree.So, The Hammer talks to Mean Gene and does his typical schtick, all the while Capt. Lou is grinning and nodding in agreement about how Valentine was going to crush his opponent, fondling his beard, rubbing his belly, and laughing at the poor sod who would dare face the Hammer.Gene finishes with Valentine and, of course, asks Lou about his thoughts on the match. If you've never seen Capt. Lou in action, run to YouTube right now and take a look. Truly one of the greats.Anyway, Lou starts on about what Valentine is going to do, how he is going to pulverize his foe etc, etc... Now one of Lou's favorite phrases about Greg Valentine was something about how powerful his hands were. I forget the actual phrasing, but it was along the lines of how his hands could produce x amount of pressure per square inch (PSI). He launches into his speech, lauding his client's physique, his skill, how pretty he is (I always loved that because Valentine was one ugly MF) and the tremendous power in his hands. However, when he got to the hands part he completely flubbed the line. Just mangled it. He must've tripped over at least 5 or 6 words in a row. It was hilarious and I was crying laughing. Well so were Mean Gene and The Hammer. I've never seen any wrestler, and ESPECIALLY Mean Gene, lose it like that. Valentine had to turn his back to the camera he was laughing so hard, and poor Gene, he just had to hold the mic while Lou (without missing a beat mind you) finished.That was the day I accepted that wrestling was fake a ...
robsul82: Linda losing her lead and trailing 5 points (in a Rasmussen poll, no less) due to a hideous debate performance?
Jim from Saint Paul: Why is this in the entertainment tab?!
kibbled: My favorite bit was when Mick Foley was betrayed by Vice McMahon the week before. It was the Monday after Father's day and he comes out carrying a leaf blower. He said something like this,"I was going to give this leaf blower for you Dad (Vince McMahon) but since you betrayed me I won't. So if your grass dies of necrosis don't come crying to me."
