Random, but this was the first WWF Hasbro figure I bought:

My first figure was the LJN Jimmy Snuka figure. I ended up with most of that first run of figures (I don't recall having Andre.)

Regarding the first run, I didn't get this one:





I was waiting for the later Warrior ones as I wasn't keen on the green trunks.

Thinking back, there was little playability value with the solid plastic Hasbro figures. Sure, they all had a special move, but good luck trying to have, say, Bret Hart put the sharpshooter on Warrior!

With the later Mattel figures, at least you could move their arms, knees, legs, etc. Bret Hart putting the sharpshooter on Warrior wouldn't have been a problem.

I can honestly say I never owned any wrestling figures. But I was tempted to buy some of the WCW ones circa the nWo and Crow Sting era.

John Hennigan (aka John Morrison, Johnny Nitro, Johnny Impact, Johnny Mundo, etc) is on the current season of SURVIVOR.

"Dirty" Dick Slater passed away this week.  He's one of those guys that old timers have all sorts of crazy stories about.

Oh, that's awful. Horrible disease (as are all diseases, of course). 

I know scientists are trying, and we've all lost someone to cancer, but the sooner that fucking bastard cancer is wiped from this planet, the better.

Best wishes to him.

This topic has gone quiet, dudes. What's happening in the land of the world's oldest sport?

I managed to meet Ax and Smash at the London Comic Con in July 2017!

I shall look after the autograph!

When I met Demolition it was pretty much fifteen minutes of me grilling Ax about his days as The Masked Superstar.

Good stuff, John!

I wish Demolition would have stayed together for at least two more years. Around the time they wound it down, and shortly after, the likes of the Nasty Boys, Natural Disasters and Head Shrinkers came to prominence.

A street fight between Demolition and the Nasty Boys? Count me in!

NXT put on another tremendous show last night.  I'd definitely recommend taking the time to watch.

I was really interested in Survivor Series ... until Becky Lynch got hurt.  I was really curious to see what they did with her and Rousey.  Bryan/Lesnar could be great but I'd rather it had a proper build-up.

Seems like another show that's determined to go too long to boot.

NXT Takeover is the best show of any weekend that it's on. The only match that didn't mean much to me was the Gargano/Black match and it was still entertaining.
