I hope this wasnt an attempt to be a good heel.

If it was then WOW you really farked it up. If this was the 60s, you would have have no problem, because that is how heels acted back then. That was entertainment then. Prowrestling is very different now.

Posting on Twitter is like talking to the police; you should just never do it. At best, no one will care about whatever inane thing you have to say. At worst you can expose yourself as a bigot, lose your job, and even go to jail. What is said on Twitter can and will be used against you, never for you.

Apparently he offered to blow the driver when wrestlers went on the road. At least that is one of the claims made. Sex Lies and Headlocks did a short portion talking about Garvin.

FTFA: Slam! Wrestling, he would not get away with these comments if he wrestled in the WWE:
If a WWE wrestler made these statements, it would probably be pretty close to the end for them. Luckily for Briscoe, ROH is so far under the radar that he'll likely skate on these statements.


Sick burn.  Unfortunately I've heard of Ring of Honor wrestling, but I've never heard of Slam! Wrestling.  Sounds like a George Michael cover band.

I think he was wrestling Bad News Brown, but Piper painted himself half black for the promo against him and the match. The body paint took a week or two to scrub off and he had to walk around in public like that.

However, even if he wasn't the Ring of Honor World Champion, Jay Briscoe's latest homophobic outburst on Twitter should not only embarrass ROH management, but also the whole wrestling industry.

Jay Briscoe would like to again express his sincerest apologies and regrets to all, especially his young fans, for his recent hateful twitter comment. Ring of Honor has insisted that Jay also make a public apology at the Ring of Honor event this Saturday night. Jay will address the public during the event.
In addition to this apology, Ring of Honor and Jay have agreed that he will donate his full pay from the next two Ring of Honor events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization. Partners Against Hate was created to help prevent, deter, and reduce juvenile hate-related behavior.

MagSeven: blindio: On your tax forms you write "Professional Wrestler", you're already identifying yourself at the bottom 1/64th of the evolutionary ladder.   Chances are you're a roid monster with the IQ only a banana would be jealous of, but you can't actually fight worth a crap and couldn't make it in MMA.  Oil yourself up, squeeze into your speedo, and get to your job where you hug men for the entertainment of a audience full of redneck idiots.  If anyone ever wanted to actually hear your idiotic opinion chances are you wouldn't have ended up in such a ridiculous profession.

Pro wrestler?

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Roddy Piper was in one of the greatest movies ever. All other discussion about his character is irrelevant.

/Of course I'm talking about "Hell Comes to Frogtown"
//What's "They Live"? Is that movie?
 
2013-05-10 01:55:05 PM  
Of course normally I'd be ticked that I left out the "a" in "Is that a movie?" on that last line...but if you read it in a psychotic wrestler voice, it works. :)

Leaner got his ass handed to him in the UFC. He's far from a legitimate badass.


Right, being UFC Heavyweight champion sucks.

So some nobody from a local bush league wrestling circuit remains a nobody from a local bush league wrestling circuit?

This guy probably drops baskets full of chicken wings into hot oil Monday through Thursday. What do you suppose he makes as a "professional" wrestler? $10,000 a year?

buckeyebrain: cman: I hope this wasnt an attempt to be a good heel.

If it was then WOW you really farked it up. If this was the 60s, you would have have no problem, because that is how heels acted back then. That was entertainment then. Prowrestling is very different now.

Oh, THAT Terry Garvin.   I was thinking of the one from early-'90s GWF.

I also was thinking of Jack Brisco instead of Jay Briscoe while reading this thread.
And Ronnie Garvin instead of Terry Garvin.

Somewhere at Titan Tower, Vince is screaming, "WHY COULDN'T HE BE WRESTLING FOR TNA?  THIS SCANDAL WOULD'VE BEEN THE DEATH KNELL!"

/of course it wouldn't have been, but Vince is going senile and would've probably said this

that's funny because wrestling is the gayest sport BY FAR.  like, male figure skaters say it's "too gay" for them.

Do you think that's what gay people do? Just asking


I do.  Google "ultimate surrender" (site NSFW) an you'll see wrestling and teh ghey.  I base all of my knowledge on fetish sites, though.

I read in the papers, washington State legalized gay marriage and marijuana on the same day.

It fulfills the prophecy in Leviticus 20:13:  "If a man lieth with another man as he lieth with womankind, then they shall both be stoned."

it implies that Virgil, being a black man, is untrustworthy and going through everyone's things to rob them.  it's advantageous for him to do so during the Royal Rumble because there are a dozen or so guys in the ring, and not looking after their things.

That racist stuff was mostly just a part of his heel turn, right? Just part of the troll? (hoping someone will have a clue how Piper comes off in interviews/is out of character otherwise)


don't know about that. but he used to have "rowdy roddy's auto repair"  here in town - with a cutout of him in his kilt  holding two mufflers over his head like swords

was going to GIS a pic, but no luck.

there was however, a pic of ms. beckham

From TFA:
Briscoe tweeted: "The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couples to get married. If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!"

He followed that up with:

"... try and teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll f*cking shoot you."


Does that make his wrestling persona the almost politically correct redneck meme?

You know, until they invented MMA, pro wrestling was the best soft core gay porn on TV. Used to fap to it all the time when I was a teenager. I credit Hacksaw Jim Duggan for my love of redneck bears.

Maybe he's just trying to follow in the footsteps of ROH alum CM Punk.  Punk called a fan . . . well, a derogatory term for a homosexual, and he was in one of the top matches at Wrestlemania this year!

Psst, hey, you. You, the wannabe smark saying nonsense on Fark. Yeah, that's right. Check this out, yo. He was kayfabing. :O No. Kidding. Considering the gimmick is him being redneck he sure sounded like one. He is just making the mistake of people taking Twitter as a shoot instead of a work. I got my ass in trouble back in '05 when I was using a wrestling forum used by the TN indy workers to cultivate a heel persona. It damn well worked, but it worked too well. Seems like the boys in the back weren't aware I was ahead of my time. If I pulled the same thing today using Twitter/Facebook it'd be a monster success.

The vast majority of MMA fighters can't fight for shiat. The rules of MMA STRONGLY favor grappling these days and lots of the rulebook is copied wholesale from boxing and just doesn't make sense.

It's come a long way from being a bloody free-for-all that matched many different styles against one another to just being wrestling+. Not a good trend.

Wrestlers have to ALWAYS be in character. Like if your wrestling character has "no nerve endings and can't feel pain," and you are hanging out in Disneyland with your family on vacation, and some guy comes up and stabs you with a knife, you have to act like it doesn't hurt. It's just how crazy that world is.

This dude's wrestling character is that he is a redneck that has a stereotyped redneck value system. It's not surprising that he has homophobic tweets. Although one might ask why he picked a redneck character. But then again, Andy Kaufman did something similar for lulz (picked a loathsome wrestling persona and remained in character during unrelated segments on late-night talk shows).
